Safe House

‘A Culture of Safety’

I find that precious, in this land of Oz we live in now.

A journalist’s belief that there are rules to this shitstorm, that the world is ‘protected’ somehow for them to do their job.

“The JOB” which ranges from telling to the truth to upholding some ideal tenet of free speech (which means what exactly in the lexicon of ‘journalism’?), to effective spinning of ‘reality’ as it ‘sees’ fit, to fulfill their publication’s agenda. Because all publications have an agenda. The Christian Science Monitor would tell you not to take aspirin, while reporting sanely on some atrocity that gives you the headache in the first place. The Wall Street Journal, which used to be a bastion of cold-economic-hard-facts, panders to political agendas that are ‘counter-intuitive’ to the mission of making a killing. Maybe. From an establishment that can buy its own ink.

There are APPARENTLY safety principles, which causes us to wonder if OSCHA is still even a thing, because they should be.

This is the kind of news we’ve come to expect:

a spy told us that HE was “out at the opening stumbling around . . . He had to sit down at one point. He must have been so desperate to party, he came up from San Diego..”


No, not that, he had to sit down at one point.

He was so desperate to party, he actually left San Diego.

Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever. Never shall I forget that nocturnal silence which deprived me, for all eternity, of the desire to live. Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust.

depression has been shown to be positively correlated with procrastination



“Writers are notoriously unable to know about themselves. Faulkner thought ‘The Fable’ was his best novel. F. Scott Fitzgerald liked ‘Tender Is the Night,’ an experimental novel.”





Fundamental Attribution Error


Projection, based on Rejection, posed as Dimension


The majority of those asked chose option 2. However, the probability of two events occurring together (in “conjunction“) is always less than or equal to the probability of either one occurring alone—formally, for two events A and B this inequality could be written as {\displaystyle \Pr(A\land B)\leq \Pr(A)}\Pr(A\land B)\leq \Pr(A) and {\displaystyle \Pr(A\land B)\leq \Pr(B)}{\displaystyle \Pr(A\land B)\leq \Pr(B)}.

(related: fundamental attribution error — “ the tendency for people to place an undue emphasis on internal characteristics of the agent (character or intention), rather than external factors, in explaining another person’s behavior in a given situation.”)

The Incompetent Miscalibration

the cognitive bias of illusory superiority results from an internal illusion in people of low ability and from an external misperception in people of high ability; that is, “the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others.”[1]

By now, inductive inference has been shown to exist, but is found rarely, as in programs of machine learning in Artificial Intelligence (AI).[14] 

Popper’s stance on induction is strictly falsified—enumerative induction exists—but is overwhelmingly absent from science.[14] 

Although much talked of nowadays by philosophers, abduction or IBE lacks rules of inference and the discussants provide nothing resembling such, as the process proceeds by humans’ imaginations and perhaps creativity.[14]



  1. method of reasoning in which the premises are viewed as supplying strong evidence for the truth of the conclusion. While the conclusion of a deductive argument is certain, the truth of the conclusion of an inductive argument may be probable, based upon the evidence given.[1]
  2. Enumerative induction or, as the basic form of inductive inference, simply induction, reasons from particular instances to all instances, thus an unrestricted generalization.[1] If one observes 100 swans, and all 100 were white, one might infer a universal categorical proposition of the form All swans are white. As this reasoning form‘s premises, even if true, do not entail the conclusion’s truth, this is a form of inductive inference.
  3. The conclusion might be true, and might be thought probably true, yet it can be false. Questions regarding the justification and form of enumerative inductions have been central in philosophy of science, as enumerative induction has a pivotal role in the traditional model of the scientific method.

How Difficulties in Recognizing One’s Own Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments

 He stated: “If you’re incompetent, you can’t know you’re incompetent … The skills you need to produce a right answer are exactly the skills you need to recognize what a right answer is.”[6][7]

 These predicates are unusual because their application is time-dependent;  others have argued such time-dependency depends on the language adopted, and in some languages it is equally true for natural-sounding predicates such as “green.” 
they illustrate the problem of projectible predicates and ultimately, which empirical generalizations are law-like and which are not.[1][2] 


Goodman’s construction and use of grue and bleen illustrates how philosophers use simple examples in conceptual analysis.

  2. enumerative induction is not an autonomous phenomenon, but is simply a masked consequence of inference to the best explanation (IBE).[6]

  3. Russell[edit]

    Having highlighted Hume’s problem of inductionJohn Maynard Keynes posed logical probability as its answer—but then figured not quite.[7] Bertrand Russell found Keynes’s Treatise on Probability the best examination of induction, and if read with Jean Nicod’s Le Probleme logique de l’induction as well as R B Braithwaite‘s review of it in the October 1925 issue of Mind, to provide “most of what is known about induction”, although the “subject is technical and difficult, involving a good deal of mathematics”.[8] Two decades later, Russell proposed enumerative induction as an “independent logical principle”.[9][10] Russell found,

inference based on many observations, is a myth


“Induction, i.e. inference based on many observations, is a myth. It is neither a psychological fact, nor a fact of ordinary life, nor one of scientific procedure”.[12]Popper’s 1972 book Objective Knowledge—whose first chapter is devoted to the problem of induction—opens, “I think I have solved a major philosophical problem: the problem of induction“.[12]

“Much like Texas, California is a state that contributes greatly to American identity by celebrating an identity that is entirely its own.”

Chapter 1

The Gold Rush

Beyond the ursine sentry is a waiting room

I can’t get past the sentry. Yet. But time is definitely on my side. You know why? No one has the fortitude of a gen-x-er, forced to survive in a sea of hippie changeling elites who consumed all the natural resources and were the last beneficiary of that quaint yet interminable construct, the American “dream.”

Then, came the avocado-toast, podshare, blockchain millennials who were the only ones who could save the world now, with their self-driving, space-seeking, factory-sleeping guru with an eight letter name.

Blatant profiting off the masses was out, sharing the wealth (so long as it fits the Warren Buffet standard, I guess) by sticking it to the man, also out. No Robinhoods here. “No one wants the homeless in their neighborhood,” he reported as the takeaway from the news story.

The story was about how RVs, which are seeing a boon in sales they say due to “baby boomers & millennials” (what a market to claim! Most of the worlds population (aka consumption of natural resources) is comprised of these fucks. They have the numbers, and much like zombie infestation, the numbers gain ground, with mind-numbing assurance. The story was about how families living in RVs after being unable to afford Southern California sky-rocketing rent, were being banned from parking – everywhere.

Put ’em in Beverly Hills.

Think, if you will, of the little tribe of sentient beings lead by a stoic and expedient Rick in The Walking Dead as Gen-X. They are responsible for the undoing of moral turpitude, the dissension among the ranks, filtering the messages and ensuring the human race survives. The behind the scenes guy. The fixer. The puppetmaster. The captain of the ship.

Chapter 2

The Godfather

The first latch key kids, Gen-X -ers learned to be self-sufficient. You can thank them for keeping netflix alive long enough to take over your entertainment modis operandi or mo·dus op·e·ran·di if you prefer.

They were also expressly formed in a cultural synthesis that only existed until the beginning of mass suicides where everyone died a little inside the day we heard Kurt Cobain killed himself.

The Godfather, The Shining, Jaws, Star Wars, Pulp Fiction – these were our movies.

For the generation whose first presidential experience was hearing their betrayed father snarl tricky Dicky * at the television set to come of age during the age of astrology policy, trickle down theory and *Material Girl served a side of cynicism with that beloved sicky sweet apple pie. We got screwed.

We made up for it. Fighting our parents who wondered why we were struggling, as the post-WW2 mindset was still going strong in the chaos of the 70s excess, followed by greed, ruthlessness & furtive expansiveness of the 80s (the world was open then, briefly, or so it seemed). That whiplash of values (uh, hippies to Gordon Gecko?) bled into the confusion that was the 90s. Heroin chic was actually a thing? How does that happen? After Gia had died of AIDS? The best music dripped with the agile pain-killing effects, while speaking of truths only certain of us could abide.

The Greatest Generation

Our manic depressive grand-fathers, who invented more inventions than you could shake a stick at, but forgot to patent them. Luckily, some he did and the genius inventor parameter was kept alive. In the spirit of that, I am kept alive.

That lead to two doctors and their understanding of the world was how we kill ourselves. Or how we continue our race, the human race, not the ideological, skin-color-identifying parameter race, despite almost blowing it on a regular basis.

Chapter 5

The Writer

I need to read this aloud for you to really “get” the meaning imbued through cadence, the flow of ideas as expressed metaphorically, with familiarity so the language moves us forward to consider other ways of seeing this world we share. Or at least, I think we share, but this all could just be a lonely hologram in the multiverse where “reality” doesn’t really exist-because reality is nothing more than shared perception. The state of things. Get real, Jody. That’s reality *they say when you hit your first road bump. A kind of *fuck you too welcome to life, kid implication best circumvented by the term “reality show.”

Unlike a puppet show or a talent show, a reality show’s gonna hurt. That’s life, kid.

Morning Melancholy

prior ambivalence towards the lost one prevents this from occurring

that is all.


that is not quite enough

but it will do for today




In his 1917 essay “Mourning and Melancholia”, Freud drew a distinction between mourning, painful but an inevitable part of life, and “melancholia”, his term for pathological refusal of a mourner to “decathect” from the lost one.

Freud claimed that, in normal mourning, the ego was responsible for narcissistically detaching the libido from the lost one as a means of self-preservation, but that in “melancholia,” prior ambivalence towards the lost one prevents this from occurring.

Suicide, Freud hypothesized, could result in extreme cases, when unconscious feelings of conflict became directed against the mourner’s own ego.


  • A psychic cost is a subset of social costs that specifically represent the costs of added stress or losses to quality of life;
  • In Mark A. Runco and Ruth Richards’ book Eminent Creativity, Everyday Creativity, and Health, they argue that creative people face psychic costs when they are thinking up new ideas, because the mental process drains them emotionally, and because there is a social stigma associated with being different, and being an artist;
  • When the military realized that soldiers faced such high psychic costs from killing people, they began developing strategies to encourage more soldiers to kill their targets;
  • [as usual] the literature to this point has been inconclusive with regard to how one’s lifetime experiences of relatedness may be related to how much individuals value additional or new experiences of relatedness. 
  • Purportedly, when some people in a community own guns, it “imposes psychic costs on most other members of the community”.
  • The anti-gun analyst claims“eighty-five percent of non-gun-owners report they would feel less safe if more people in their community acquired guns; only 8% would feel more safe.”
  • This is purportedly because non gun-owners would worry about guns being used in the neighbourhood. MAKES NO SENSE> it’s the kid who’s had the police over 18 times or was it 29, who the police, in their usual efficacy, ignore, so he kills 17 people. That’s about as big a failure as why the school administrators didn’t have some sort of system for keeping a student suspended for violence off their fucking campus. DUH. And now the NRA will be the reason the gov’t takes our guns, puts us in camps, buries us in those Jesse Ventura FEMA caskets all over the heartland. WHY they are waiting is the question.


  1. Perceived psychic costs can cause customers to delay or forgo purchases that they are considering.
  2. Customers have many areas of perceived psychic costs in regards to making purchases. UM, LIKE POVERTY, OR CHOOSING BETWEEN FOOD, HOUSING, CLOTHES AND TRANSPO.
  3.       for a guitar enthusiast or a model railroad hobbyist, 
Some jobs pay poorly, such as beach resorts, guitar stores, model train stores, and small colleges, but they always have applicants, because the jobs provide a substantial psychic benefit to the applicants. 

Slate writer Steven Landsburg argues that “psychic costs shouldn’t count because they’re too easy to exaggerate. Anyone can claim to have suffered $1 million worth of emotional distress, but we have no way of knowing which claims are simply fabricated.”

I really have come to hate the writers of Slate, but that’s for a far more personal reason that the dude started a rumor that Trump had off-ed me because at the time they were dogging me for a misquote, I was dealing with a criminal landlord, a psycho stalker and a massive refugee flight from any semblance normal life after LAPD tortured me and executed a nasty, traumatizing false arrest that will affect me for the rest of my life.

so fuck you steven landsburg i can measure my emotional distress and it’s about

$ 225, 000 and counting. You think the woman who couldn’t even show up for a restitution hearing Haydee or Heidi Darleen fat fuck Mana lard can pay me back for all the pain and suffering and actually monetary loss and nerve damage, and chronic pain and oh the effects of the heat from Ponce and Gomez, LAPD officers put on trial for making false police reports all over town (they were the ones who tortured me), the ‘arresting officer’ just did stupid things like say, if she, the fat fuck Haydee, identifies you, you’re going to jail.


That is July 2016. I was going to see my mother.

This June I am supposed to help my mother, who now can’t care for herself, move from the place she loved and had planned to die quietly in peace.


My uncle died while I was in jail for a false arrest.


This would be psychic cost, I would say to that Slate fuck.


I have anger management tomorrow so the judge can say, “I can make this all go away” with their requisite god-complex and low IQ. You’d have to be dumb to spend your life upholding the lie of the law.


Have a nice day.

Still there was nothing to indicate her time space continnuum could ever be reconciled with the “reality” around her.

The “manic depressive” is cursed with a bearish cycle of inspired mania when he invents foam rubber but forgets to register the patent that lasts three months followed by a depressive state, the first time a punishing fall from grace for that first spark of celestial insight, clarity of vision shared by the guru, shaman, kahuna, and “spiritual advisors,” alike.

The depression cycle lasts three times longer, no explanation, just accepted.

Those three times three sections to counteract the three times one seems completely unfair.

The book continues to argue that this descent into psychosis is both inevitable and immutable for those “unfortunate enough” to be in that percentile of “the population.”

Stop the anger the postcard, regaling the effects of location, said, in a not particularly unfamiliar voice. Not quite chiding, but not all that empathetic either. Like everyone you encounter in a day. They can’t quite encourage you as their generic genetic predisposition is to want to kill you.

You, on the other hand, profess to be interested in the teachings of Gandhi (while reading Malcolm X), teach peace & generally feel the pain of others. It’s the specific parts that trouble the mind. The specificity of the person’s experience all gets a bit messy after all.
