[BOT POST] trotskyist hot take 

moon bright

I can see it out the one small window in my basement

:comfy_cirno:

That was kinda short, but I've got work in the morning, so maybe I'll do more this weekend if people are interested.

So I decided to learn some #CommonLisp. I stayed away from it up until now because I don't like mutability and imperative languages, but I found out about packages like Alexandria, Serapeum, Sycamore, folio2 and `modf` that allow writing functional and immutable Common Lisp.
Now the problem is that I don't know where to start. The libraries seem to be aimed at experienced Common Lispers who want to switch to a functional style and there are no guides for functional Common Lisp.

magic isn't like programming. that's a lie techbros tell you to convince you that their skills transfer over well enough to automate it.

magic is like the humanities. spells carry their creator's name because the context their creator wrote them in is vital to practicing the spell. you're trying to think the same set of thoughts as the writer. you're replicating a mindset, valueset, pattern of linked ideas and concepts that can't be mapped on a flowchart. contexts, subtle implications, conceptual links all make a spell take effect in the way it was intended. missing those little extra pieces will dramatically reduce its effectiveness. if you don't understand why homer described the ocean as wine-dark, forget learning the spells hidden in the forgotten verses of the odyssey.

you can never quite tell when a spell has worked; there may always be little improvements you can make to your perspective - or changes you can think of within the pattern that change the spell to fit your whims.

Bad: normative, classist, eugenicist transhumanism.

Awesome: queer furry transhumanism.
