| || | submitted by colit-astra to RitaFourEssenceSystem [link] [comments]
Hey all! I decided to break out style content into a new account before I got in too deep with my old one. I'm back with the rest of this week's OOTDs and I think in the future I'll do a week at a time.
Two of these outfits were work and one weekend day of errands. Look 1 felt pretty good although in the picture I wish it had more visual interest. Look 2 bothered me because something in the fit of the shirt isn't quite right. I felt a bit stumpy and frumpy even though I love the shirt's design, by the artist who did one of my tattoos. I initially wore a nekclace to increase visual interest but took it off because I just felt overloaded with the shirt fabric. Look 3 is serviceable. It was interesting to me that I just had
to add a necklace for it to be acceptable. I also like the dark shoes providing some grounding to an otherwise lightish look. I am comfy, which is a big plus.
My goal this week has been to simply observe what logic I currently seem to be using, and I think I'll do that for another week or two before trying out specific archetype logics or choosing which workbook to buy. I've read most of Rita's written posts by now but have only begun to dip into the videos. So far I'm pretty confident in my Left-ness. I think I am a bit Up within the Down quadrant, and so far the Wildflower seems most similar to my existing process. People seem to either really dig my style or find it just a little too weird, I often get the comment that "oh I could never wear that (color, print, big jewelry)" in a way that sometimes feels backhanded, and I definitely don't dress in a trendy manner. I do want to interest people with my clothes but I do not necessarily want or intend to please people with them. I do have a strong curiosity about how others perceive me, but I don't think I have a good ability to pick up on the impression I'm making, or not making.
I am definitely drawing primarily from within, and although I often start with one item that I want to experiment with or a visual curiosity about how two garments might harmonize together, I find it difficult to go with an outfit I've planned ahead without huge tweaks after I get it on my body and figure out how I physically and mentally feel in it. Although I do want to make an impression, and convey certain qualities about myself within a situation (almost always work), I think it is more important to me whether I personally feel that I am embodying my vision. At best the answer is currently "not quite," which is I guess why I'm here.
I have come to understand this week that an outfit can simultaneously feel too blah and too fussy. I crave a lot of visual interest, and I also want to achieve a greater sense of ease than I currently have. I need an outfit to appeal to as many of my senses as possible - visual, physical/touch, scent (fragrance is a huge part of the effect for me) and even sound, for example I love a heel that clicks when I walk or a skirt that rustles luxuriously.
As I've reflected on what I think is missing
in my style right now, Ease and a bit of Cool is definitely big which are more Down, but most of what I desire and don't fully know how to express is definitely Up-ness. I tentatively think that the Enigma best represents the direction I'd like to push myself in. I want to create more magnetism, perhaps a sense of surprise, and an inner power that I often struggle to connect to. I think "Ease" to me is actually connected to power, more like a self assurance, a comfort with oneself expressed in physical unencumbrance.
For the week ahead, the keyword I want to keep most in mind is "Elemental," as this is an, um, element that I feel is missing and would help my outfits be more Me. I thought it was cool that u/belcorvo
brought up the astrological concept of the stellium recently. I just wrote a ton about how this resonates with me - I have my sun and 3 planets in Virgo as well as 3 in the eighth house - but that's too much for this already long post. Basically I have a lot of earth and fire in my chart that I do think reflects my persona, as well as some edge or darkness that is present in me but not well expressed in my current wardrobe. I think "Elemental" energy will help me start to create more satisfying style with a little more depth and power.
I've been trying not to shop recently, but yesterday I needed a pick me up so I went to a local vintage shop. I kept "ease" and "elemental" in mind and wound up purchasing a dress that makes me feel like a million bucks, plus a couple of tops that sparked joy. I think it was a pretty successful attempt to use my intuition and logic together to make purchasing decisions.
Thanks for getting through this essay! Any insights will be very appreciated!
2023.06.03 23:33 Lamont_Cranston01 Traveling and Security
I love Firefox and have been using it for years. Now I'm moving countries and want to keep it as secure as possible but I'm nervous about updating passwords, updating to a more current / more used email address and setting up 2FA before moving from the US to the EU. Is there any kind of paid version of Firefox or way to get in-person direct help if you're nervous about getting locked out?
Also does 2FA for Firefox require I download an app? I've read horror stories of authenticator apps not working and people not being able to get the codes they need.
Finally, is there any tutorials on how to safely update email addresses so you don't lose access, update passwords, and set up 2FA without getting locked out while moving to another country? I want to wait until I have a new local EU phone before setting up or even trying to set up 2FA for obvious reasons.

2023.06.03 23:33 slelelek My (23M) girlfriend (22F) of close to 2 years had an adulterous relationship with her married youth church leader
I’ve contemplated very long about putting this out there and asking for advice, so please bear with my long story ahead. Also, genuinely looking for advice and I might delete this later on for fear of anyone finding out.
Met my girlfriend in University because we were staying at the same dorm. Hit it off pretty well at the start until she revealed something big to me at the start of our romantic relationship. Won’t say things were official then but it was becoming serious between the both of us, just cuddling up until this point.
She then told me about the most recent relationship she was in right before she entered University, with one of her youth church leaders who is married (35M now), let’s call him Harry. Her whole family’s Christian and I’m not, for context. I dug deeper and went through all of their conversations for hours, trying to wrap my head around this extremely shocking piece of news. Before she told me anything, she also said this was something she would have taken to her grave, but I guess she changed her mind and decided to confess to me before we progressed further.
Initially from a relationship of a youth leader and a “friend”, Harry already knew what he was doing from the start. He desired her from the start which was around December of 2019 and started to talk to my gf, under the pretence of resolving some sort of misunderstanding between his wife and my gf, which he later on confessed was just a ruse that he used to get closer to her. He was 31 and my gf was 18 at the time. His wife was also my gf’s direct mentor in church.
Under the pretence of being nice and friendly, they started to get closer, started with the guy constantly texting her and initiating conversations, particularly when she went overseas for a vacation during the same month. He constantly asked her about her day to build rapport, opens up very easily to her and shows her his vulnerabilities very early on.
When she came back, he starting doing her lots of favours prominently by ferrying her around and giving her rides since they stayed relatively near each other.
He also kept sending pics of his kids from the start, in between mixing in flirtatious jokes which increased in intensity to using terms like “my lady” and then becoming more and more explicit by escalating to hugs and physical affection like holding hands. So fucking explicit bc he keeps asking her flirtatious questions and wanting her to reciprocate time and time again.
She suspected from the start as well and knew it was morally wrong but secretly craved attention and love so she entertained and went along with it, not really responding to his flirty texts at first but from a certain point on started to reciprocate. She started to develop feelings for him as well.
He puts the wife out of the picture by confiding in my gf that his wife can’t provide the same emotional support that she does, makes her feel special and wanted so her knowing it was morally wrong, still went along with things. Their relationship gradually turned sexual and they had sex several times (<10 times) according to my gf, in his car, at his friend’s house which he was supposed to housekeep for, might have even happened inside his house when the wife was away, but I can’t remember this exactly. Some part of me regrets going through all their conversations and probing so much about everything, but I don’t think I could have not probed so much either. It honestly hurts me so much everyday, especially back when I first found out 2 years ago, till this day, my mind often constructs images of their sexual relations and it hurts me so bad.
He apparently also has depression and has used his mental condition and suicide as leverage in their relationship many times, such as getting my gf to sympathise with him and to threaten her from leaving.
After that revelation about an unethical relationship she had before me, which up until a few months before the guy was still trying to contact her after she broke it off, I encouraged/forced her to confess what she did to a senior church leader, and long story short, that guy was fired and banned from church, his wrongdoings were revealed to his wife and his family, his wife met up with my gf where my gf apologised for her wrongdoings and his wife said that she forgives her and even apologised that her husband is that way.
We both agreed that we would keep it from her family, partly because I knew how nice her family was and I couldn’t bear seeing what would happen if her parents found out. Her parents are the kindest and most generous people ever, and I imagine their hearts would shatter.
Took countless, COUNTLESS of toxic fights, crying, healing to get to where we are today, nowhere near perfect, but we’ve broken up and got back together many times because we realise how much we love each other. I do love her so much and I can’t imagine a world without her now. Yet, I also worry about my future with her. We’ve been spending almost every day together for close to 2 years, most of the time sleeping together in dorm (which we’ve left one month ago), and I can’t seem to let her go. This hurts me so much knowing I lover her and that I have to look past her past wrongdoings. It hasn’t been easy up till this day but it has definitely gotten better. But most days, I will get intrusive thoughts when I get triggers or even mildly reminded of her past. This happens very often.
I’ve cried a plenty lot and so has she, and she says that this is her biggest regret, having made me suffer her consequences, and wishes that things could have been different.
In 2 months, I will be flying off for an exchange programme for one year somewhere far away, and I’ve been thinking about what to do obviously. I don’t know if I want to spend the rest of my life enduring these painful memories while being very happy with her, I really don’t. This pain is heart-wrenching but I know we both truly love each other.
So, I’m here asking for advice as a last resort. How should I approach this whole matter? Is it possible to forget all my pain and just live my life with this girl who has realised her wrongdoings and is trying to be a better person? Or should I use the next one year to forget her?

2023.06.03 23:33 autotldr Ukraine war: Twenty injured after Russian strike on Dnipro
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original
reduced by 63%. (I'm a bot)
Twenty people have been injured - and it is feared that others are trapped - after an alleged Russian strike in Ukraine's central city of Dnipro. Summary Source FAQ Feedback Top keywords: Ukraine#1 Russian#2 attack#3 reported#4 official#5
Explosions were also reported in other parts of Ukraine on Saturday.
Local authorities said Ukraine was to blame, although Ukraine itself said the deaths were the result of Russia trying to target fighters who oppose the government in Moscow.
There has been a spate of attacks in the region in recent weeks, notably including a major cross-border incursion late last month which Moscow said ended in the deaths of 70 attackers.
Kyiv denied having any direct involvement, again saying the attack was mounted by Russian paramilitaries.
Mr Zelensky said his country was ready to launch its long-promised counter-offensive against occupying Russian soldiers.

2023.06.03 23:33 Outrageous_Ad4460 I’m selling 100,000 in-game currency for $10 USD, which is cheaper than Jailbreak’s price of $15 USD. However, I’m open to negotiation. I chose 100,000 for $10 USD to keep things simple.
I'm looking to earn some extra real-life money, and I've noticed that Jailbreak's currency is very expensive. For example, buying 100,000 in-game currency costs 1250 Robux, which equals $14.71 USD if you purchase 1700 Robux for $20 USD.
Even if you choose the most expensive option and buy 3000 Robux for 250,000 in-game currency (with 4500 Robux for $50 USD), it still costs $13.34 USD for 100,000 in-game currency.
I'm not trying to take advantage of anyone. At the rate I grind for in-game currency, the amount I earn from this deal is less than minimum wage. I just want a reason to keep playing since I already own all the vehicles.
If you're interested, send me a direct message (DM). I'll provide you with my PayPal and Roblox username, and we can join a server together. To ensure safety for both parties, I'll release the in-game currency in increments as I receive the corresponding payments through PayPal. I'm even willing to send you the first increment before you pay me.

2023.06.03 23:32 urbancowgirl42 Why am I getting physically grabbed by grown-ass adults at school?
I am a music teacher, and next year will be year 20 for me. I am transitioning, not out of the classroom, but to a different age range and school district.
This school district has some really good folks, and I don’t want to retell the story, but check my post history if you are curious.
TL:DR- I was stalked this year, causing intense anxiety during concerts. Stalker moved, but I still decided to leave the district due to many other systemic issue, though I am immensely fond of my principals. Finally was diagnosed with ADHD during this mess and suddenly my life made sense, leading me to change to a more manageable position rather than leave teaching all together.
I have had a very stressful and curious issue this week. Due to the stalker issue, concerts became overwhelming as I was terrified of being hurt while my back was to the audience. I got some mental health treatment and managed to survive the year, until I had several issues this last week.
During the last concert this week, while I was managing a very intricate schedule and set-up, I was grabbed from behind. I nearly elbowed the grabber in the face due to the surprise and terror. It turned out to be a family member that wanted to compliment me on my son’s performance.
Why she felt the need to grab me, while I’m directing students, instead of approaching me from the front likely has an explanation, but honestly I’m not very interested, as it was not ok to do. I managed to pull it together and thank her for the compliment, but I was very rattled and very upset.
A day later, at the other school I teach at, a volunteer with a developmental delay was asking me a question. She is sad I’m leaving and I go out of my way to be kind of her. However, that day I was late getting to the high school, and I told her three times I couldn’t chat as I was late. As I moved away, she grabbed my arm and held me so I couldn’t leave.
I can’t tell if this is indicative of me being better with boundaries due to ADHD treatment and people reacting because I’ve changed, if it’s more indicative of the systemic issues and chaos of the district and community, or if it was just a shitty week. I will say a lot of other shitty behavior went on this week, too.
A boundary I’ve bern very firm with the past few weeks because I finally can be is that I won’t listen to more than one person at once. I put up my finger and make interrupters wait, and then I give them my full attention.
I mention this because it has resulted in me being grabbed by a lot of students, too. Neurodiverse and traumatized kids cluster in music, as it is a break from the daily grind they really struggle to manage. It’s not ok that the kids do that, either, but I’m more understanding and can manage it better. I also usually see it coming.
I don’t think I should have to explain to adults that it’s not ok to be grabbed in my workplace. I’m just struggling to interpret this trend, as it is new and I’m neurodivergent.

2023.06.03 23:32 crazedhark Purposefully casting "wrong" actors/actresses for different movie roles.
at this point I sincerely think that now they are doing it on purpose, with the hope of creating more discord between people then making it as a "race" thing with the plan of making the masses directing their hate to the actors/actresses itself.
when I learned that HTTYD is casting Nico Parker as Astrid, this was the moment that made me ponder, "why would they do that?" I know theyre saying inclusion and all and theres nothing wrong with that but the actors doesnt even resemble the character. If they want inclusion so bad why not create movies that has characters that fits the actors they wanted to "include"??
tbh I dont really care at first when it first happened (Little Mermaid) cuz I dont really care with the movie/franchise at all. I even said that people are just overreacting and the girl that played was bullied and receiving hate for no reason (the memes were funny af tho) but now I understand why the masses reacted like that. Imagine seeing a character you grew up watching being portrayed by someone that doesnt even resemble them just for the sake of "inclusion" which clearly is doing the opposite right now. Ever heard any news or headlines with Nico? cuz I havent. All I got from it was unnecessary hate and funny af memes.
Divide and Conquer. As always. The smaller group we are, the easier we are to control.

2023.06.03 23:32 Administrative_Toe96 To The Last Man....
This story is related to my previous one here: https://www.reddit.com/HFY/comments/13xxyz8/a\_pile\_of\_spent\_plasma\_cartridges\_and\_a\_red\_cross/
I sat on my bunk nursing a nasty looking black eye given to me by our “Gracious host”. It’s funny how humanity has sprung forth from its homeworld, and the best remedy for a black eye is still a frozen bag of peas. This is bullshit, I don’t want to be here anymore then they want me to be here. This whole idea of cooperating for the “good of all” isn’t panning out. I need to put—— my train of thought is interrupted by the sound of klaxons. I put down the mostly frozen bag of peas and reach for my gear. Having drilled for this thousands of times in my 4 years since being drafted. It took my less than 30 seconds to dawn my armor. As I lifted my helmet and activated the display I saw red text scrolling across. “HOSTILE FORCES IN SYSTEM, FLEET ATTEMPTING TO REPELL. CONFIDENCE LOW. PLACING ALL TERRAN FORCES UNDER THE TEMPORARY COMMAND OF LOCAL FORCES” Fuck, this couldn’t get any worse. I just got into a bar fight with these lizards and now I have to take orders from them? What is command thinking? A new text message scrolled across my display. “ATTENTION ALL TERRAN FORCES, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE YOUR ORDERS ARE TO GARRISON THE CIVILIAN SHELTERS IN THE F’RIX DISTRICT. DIRECTIONS ARE BEING FORWARDED TO YOUR COMMAND.” Great, that didn’t take long. Bet the— my thought was interrupted by Captain Armstrong. “Alright D Company, Lets stow the attitude and get to work. Our assignment is approximately 10 kilometers deep in the city. Hurry up and mount up and let’s get rolling. We’ll decide all the details when we get there” I grabbed my rifle and medical kit and heaved up from my bunk. “Jesus St. John, you look like I feel” Corporal Blankenship said with mirth in his voice “Fuck you, let’s just get this over with.” He’s easily the most annoying member of my team. Being a Navy Corpsman in the Terran Republic Marines isn’t all it’s made out to be. On one hand, you become family to them. They treat you as a brother even if you aren’t “one of them”. On the other hand, you might as well be in the Marines. “ Hey corpsman, do you think the fleet is going to be able to prevent a landing?” PFC Thompson yelled over the sound of shuffling gear “ Oh jeez PFC, I Don’t know. Let me call up the Admiral and check. Right after I do that I think I’ll also wish the enemy away as hard as I can.” “Dick” he shot back I set towards the door with my rifle in hand. As I approached the threshold an APC skidded to a stop. Several tons of steel, the APC wouldn’t have been out of place in any old war movie. The best way to move troops on the ground was still a fast and lightly armored box with wheels. The loading ramp defended and I proceeded to stow my rifle in the racks by the entrance. I took my seat at the back of the APC. I hate riding in these steel coffins. Although if we get hit the chances of me making it aren’t any better if I’m here or sitting in the driver's lap. The tires skidded as the last troops loaded in and took their places. Limited conversations were taking place. With time to think about the situation we were in everything became so much more real. Marines are still Marines though. It didn’t take long for jokes to start flying and ease the tension. A new message scrolled across my vision. “FLEET FORCES HAVE FAILED TO PREVENT THE ENEMY FROM GAINING ORBITAL SUPREMACY. RETREATING TO FORWARD OPERATING BASE LINCON TO RENDEZVOUS WITH OTHER FLEET ELEMENTS.” Fucking great. The APC skidded to a stop in front of the main entrance of the emergency shelter. “Everybody out!” Yelled Sgt. Newman He is the saltiest Marine I’ve ever had the pleasure of serving with. Straight to the point and no time for bullshit. I Exited the APC to find controlled chaos. Everywhere seemed like it was filled with figures in armor running to some location. Sgt. Newman was instantly called to the small Command post immediately forward of the Shelter Entrance. After a short exchange, he jogged back to us. “ Alright folks, We have been tasked with taking up position in the outer defensive line. This means we will get all of the action if there is any to be had today. Lets hoof it up there like a couple of Marines on leave in a whore house” Everyone chuckled, even me. I’ve been around Marines to long. We jogged to our new position and set up. My job was essentially to sit back and wait until someone got hurt after I helped set up the squad's plasma gun emplacement. “ORBITAL LANDING PODS DETECTED IN UPPER ATMOSPHERE. APPROXIMATE LANDING LOCATION UNKNOWN. PREPARE FOR DEFENSE OF THE PLANET” Here we go. “They won’t land here right Sgt. I mean we are just protecting the civilians” said PFC Thompson said with a clear quiver in his voice. “Stow that shit Thompson, if they do we’ll handle it” Sgt. Newman fired back. He didn’t look so sure. I’d never seen him actually look nervous. “KLAXION FORCES HAVE ENGAGED THE ENEMY———“ The rest was cut off. What was that? I’ve never seen the tactical net go down before. “LOCAL COMMAND NET OVERRIDE: DROP PODS DETECTED WITH TRAJECTORY CORRESPONDING TO OUR LOCATION” The silence of my squad was heavy and thick. We all knew what that meant. We were cut off from joint command and on our own. No backup. “ LOCAL COMMAND NET OVERRIDE: KINETIC BOMBARDMENT INCOMING TAKE COVER “ I threw myself to the ground and tried to bury myself behind the thick concrete barriers originally intended to prevent vehicles from leaving the roadway. A sound lack thunder followed me there. The ground shook, glass broke in the buildings above and heat washed over me. A wall of dust and dirt moved through our position obscuring everything. As my hearing returned I raised my head to see that most of the squad had recovered and was preparing to repel the enemy attack that was surely going to accompany this. “CONTACT!” Screamed our plasma gunner The world became a place filled with bright lights and sizzling bolts. I looked around to see if my services were needed anywhere. “CORPSMAN!” The sound that all corpsman dread hearing because it means that one of our charges is hurt. Possibly fatally. I rushed over to the huddled mass of marines. “Move over dammit” I yelled as I pushed past the two marines who called me over. “He took a piece of falling debris” What I saw in front of me was a mangled mess. I looked up at the wounded marine. From what I could see it looked like whatever hit him shattered his chest. “ Alright, We need to get him back to the aid station in the shelter I can’t do anything for him here. I need someone to come with me because I can’t carry the stretcher on my own. “ Sgt. Newman “ Take Thompson, radio before you come back” The look he gave me was one of resignation. It was bad, really bad. He knew it, and he didn’t expect there to be a position for me to return to. Thompson and I grabbed the stretcher from my aid bag and assembled it. Carefully we rolled the wounded marine onto it. “ Suppressing fire “ shouted Sgt. Newman We launched to our feet and took off running as carefully as possible. Plasma bolts sizzled past us as we approached the second and then final defensive line. We hurried into the entrance of the emergency shelter alongside several other wounded. We placed our charge down on the floor in the hallway. At this point, our job was done and we were to return back to our post. As I turned to go back another Sgt. Blocked my way. “The first defensive line is gone. Corpsman, Stay here. We are trying to consolidate at the second line but it’s not looking good. PFC Stay here as well. I’m attaching you to the Final line of defense. I need more marines if they break through the second line” I glanced at Thompson who was already moving to obey orders. The shock of what we had just been told hadn’t had time to set in. The training was what kept us both moving. I rushed into the field hospital to see what I could do. What greeted me was horror. Men bleeding, screaming, and dying. A field surgeon grabbed me. “I need you to hold pressure on this wound so I can go prep a the Emergency OR” I stared at him in confusion. OR? What do you mean OR? We’ve been here maybe 30 minutes. How the hell did one get set up here so quickly? I obeyed regardless of my disbelief. The Marine screamed out in pain as I applied pressure. There was blood everywhere. The next couple of hours were a flash of gore and death. We were caught in the middle trying to fight back the Grim Reaper as well as this new foe. By nightfall, the enemy had broken through the second defensive line and had drawn back before taking on the final line. It was quiet, so damn quiet. I wandered around the shelter. I couldn’t sleep. A tail as old as time. I came to A large room with bunks and voices. Inside were the people we are here to protect. Lizards, that's what most of us described the Klaxions as. They were basically bipedal reptiles. However, I found something in my heart while watching them clutch their children to their scaled faces. This is the first time I’d seen any civilians. They looked, and acted like us. Yes, they appeared different but they still clutched their young to their chest. Still comforted the old. My entire worldview that I thought was stable as a concrete high-rise came crashing down on my head. I thought these people were vicious killers of men. All of them, but they just aren’t. They are afraid just like us. One Motioned me over and held up a device. “What is your name Terran” the device spat out at me “St. John” “St. John, will you join me for tea?” “I uh—“ “ Please, it's the least we can do” I sat as a cup was placed in my hand, the tea was warm and steaming. After the Klaxion was done pouring my cup I lifted it to take a sip. It was full of flavor causing my sharp features to scrunch up with surprise. “First time having traditional Klaxion Tea?” “ Yes, it’s uh. Really good *chuckle* “ “ I’m glad you like it, do you have any news from outside the shel——“ Three thunderclaps shook the shelter. Screams rang out in the crowd. “Everybody down!” I yelled as I ran back to the adjoining hallway I didn’t get far before I ran into retreating elements of the final defense line. “Corpsman, take up position in the doorway and prepare to repel the enemy” I looked at him in shock. “Do it now goddammit!” Plasma bolts started flying down after the retreating marines. At their rear was Captain Armstrong carrying what seemed to be…… Thompson, PFC Thompson. He looked badly injured. The Captain rushed him inside the main shelter room and laid him down. Immediately the Klaxion rendered as much aid as they could. Although physically different. Both of our species knew that fluids leaving the body in a hurry was bad news and to apply pressure. As I turned back to the Captain he took a plasma bolt to the face. There wasn’t anything left. What was left was all over my face shield. “Here they come!” Shouted someone from the hallway. I heard screams, so many screams. Screams of terror, screams of anger, screams of rage. In the end, my Plasma rifle ran dry. I looked around me, spent plasma cartridges layn in piles. I heard footsteps behind me. The walking wounded had armed themselves with knives, sticks, and sidearms. Then they came into the entrance. I threw myself in front of the civilians out of instinct. An instinct given to all humans. To protect the innocent. As the plasma bolts ripped through my body, one must have clipped my spine. I could feel the pressure of the shots but nothing else. The room grew dark except for one spot. This must be the light everyone talks about. I’m sorry I couldn’t do more, but we did all we could.

2023.06.03 23:32 Contactunderground Dr. Jacques Vallee is Skeptical of the ET Explanation for UFOs: Contact Experiencers Should Study his Detailed Investigations. Joseph Burkes MD 2023.
“There is probably no more influential thinker in the study of UFOs than the French astronomer and computer scientist Jacques Vallee.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmLE0X5FRFc&t=342s
Thus, starts this excellent short YouTube documentary linked above, Jacques Vallee, UFOs and the Case against Extraterrestrial Origins
produced by Think Anomalous in 2022. Dr. Jacques Vallee early in his career was a proponent of the ET Hypothesis (ETH) as explanation for UFOs. However, after years of speaking to UFO witnesses and discussing the cases with an informal group of scientists that he called “The Invisible College”, Vallee concluded the following: the proposition that UFOs were controlled by ET beings was too simplistic.
In my opinion, contact experiencers and activists should also be skeptical of the ET explanation for UFOs and the non-human beings associated with them. This is especially so given the larger society is starting to acknowledge the reality and importance of what are now called UAP. Although the current emphasis is on sighting reports, eventually societal discussions will not be able to ignore the stories of contact and communications with the non-human intelligences associated with flying saucers.
As one who supports the staging of Human Initiated Contact Events (HICE) popularly known as CE-5s, it is crucially important that contact activists have at their disposal the most accurate assessments of what is truly going on. The thoughtful analyses of a brilliant thinker such as Dr. Jacques Vallee should guide our investigations into UFOs and associated paranormal phenomena. These have been called “The Contact Modalities.” This is term coined by author Rey Hernandez, who believes that UFOs, out of body, and near-death experiences as well as other paranormal events should be studied as related phenomena characterized by manipulations of spacetime within a matrix of consciousness. In my judgment, by having a nuanced and sophisticated approach to flying saucers, contact and disclosure activists will be able to share their knowledge most effectively with the larger society.
An important factor that contributed to Vallee rejecting the ET Hypothesis is that encounters were associated with a multitude of what are considered paranormal phenomena like poltergeists and apparitions. Many of the reports included many absurd elements and behaviors exhibited by the “ufonauts” that Vallee deemed were not consistent with their being highly advanced ET visitors with sophisticated technologies. The seemingly nonsensical behaviors of the so-called aliens seemed so contrived that he suspected they were designed to display certain images. Those visual displays were associated with profound psychological transformations in many witnesses and over time have had an effect of society in general.
In the documentary, producer Jason Charboneau lists Vallee’s reasons for challenging the ET Hypothesis. These appeared in an article Vallee published in 1990 in The Journal of Scientific Exploration. “First:
he argued that there were far more landings and contacts than would be necessary for an interplanetary survey or surveillance operation. By his and others estimates there must have been 3 million UFO landings around the world in the last 20 years, an impossibly large number. Second:
UFOs and ufonauts rarely flew away or walked off. When they left, often they simply vanished blinked out of existence or slowly faded away. This suggests that the craft and occupants were more like projections than physical things. Third:
the bodies, actions, and the abilities of the ufonauts do not suggest an extraterrestrial or evolutionary origin. Often the aliens were identical to humans, spoke our languages and were perfectly capable of breathing our air and walking in our gravity. Fourth:
Vallee noted that most of the ufonauts revelations, especially those concerning their origins were nonsense and almost entirely different from one another. Ufonauts claimed to be from just about everywhere in the universe and frequently gave directions or offered maps that made no logical sense such as the two-dimensional star map shown to Betty Hill. Fifth:
finally, Vallee argued that the data collected from cases of so-called alien abduction were unreliable and again involved highly unlikely scenarios. For example, abductees frequently describe highly invasive and painful medical procedures in order to achieve tasks that even doctors in the 1980s could have done with minimal discomfort.”
The Think Anomalous team has produced many excellent short documentaries and I encourage everyone to view and share widely this important resource.

2023.06.03 23:32 itsjackwayne Square Enix And Ubisoft Lead NFT Game Development
| || |playtoearngames.com submitted by itsjackwayne to playtoearn_games [link] [comments]
As web3 technology transforms the gaming industry, several web2 video game publishers around the world are dabbling in NFT games in order to stay ahead of the competition. These publishers are refocusing their efforts on incorporating blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies, and NFTs into video games. Some of the world's largest gaming companies are gradually showing interest in Web3, with platforms such as PC shooters, mobile games, and multiplayer metaverse games in mind.
Furthermore, the majority of the game publishers on our list have their headquarters in Asia, with only one in the United States and one in Europe. This dominance corresponds to DappRadar's prediction that Asia will become a Web3 gaming hub. In this article, we'll look at some notable game publishers who are launching new projects in the web3 gaming market.
Square Enix Leads the Charge in NFT Games
Since 2019, Square Enix, the company behind the success of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts video games, has been investigating NFT games. In 2021, the company will release a limited-edition bundle of NFT trading cards based on Ethereum. Six months later, Square Enix traded the rights and the Tomb Raider IP to its three studios in order to raise funds for blockchain ventures and artificial intelligence (AI) research and development.
Earlier this year, the developer announced that Symbiogenesis, an NFT game, would be made available on the Ethereum sidechain ecosystem Polygon. The next game, according to the company, is a "collectible art project" with a storyline and a mystery that players must solve.
The publisher also stated that it plans to bring its Dungeon Siege IP to the gaming world. Square Enix previously invested in The Sandbox, a metaverse game. In addition, on Polkadot, Square Enix released Final Fantasy VII NFT-based trade cards linked to real-world statues and collectibles on Enjin's Efinity platform.
Nexon, a solution-oriented firm, is developing MapleStory Universe, a unique MapleStory game, on Polygon NFTs. The NFT game, according to Nexon, will have its own private network or polygon "Supernet." Nexon is a major South Korean Web2 game developer. Other successful titles from the developers include Dungeon and Fighter, Sudden Attack, and KartRider.
The original MapleStory games drew a massive player base of over 260 million people. Furthermore, the studio's revenue increased to more than $4 billion. Hwang Sun-Young, Group Leader of MapleStory Universe, stated that Polygon Labs and the team will work directly on all aspects of the game's creation and promotion.
Ubisoft, a French game publisher, is one of the few Western Web2 video game developers who openly embrace NFTs. In 2021, free Tezos NFTs for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint became available. Even though the NFTs were unappealing and were introduced in a game with few active players, they sparked a furious online outcry from gamers who dislike the concept of NFTs in games.
Ubisoft released "Smart Collectibles" from Assassin's Creed at the start of 2023, a clever move that combines tangible collectibles with digital NFT components. In The Sandbox game, the studio also revealed NFTs based on its Rabbids IP.
Krafton, the South Korean publisher of PUBG: Battlegrounds and PUBG Mobile, has announced plans to release a metaverse game that supports NFT. The studio uses the "create-to-earn" mechanism, which allows players to create their own digital resources.
While no new releases have made headlines, Zynga's Web3 gaming section is making progress. According to a job posting on the studio's website, the studio is currently looking for talented and ambitious software engineers. The studio is growing its team in order to dive into the world of web3 games and create innovative projects.
Take-Two Interactive, Zynga's parent company, is one of the world's largest gaming publishers. Titles in its diverse portfolio include Grand Theft Auto, NBA 2K, and Red Dead Redemption.
NCSoft, a Korean game developer, is responsible for titles such as Guild Wars, Blade & Soul, and the Lineage series. It has stated its intention to develop NFT games on the recently established Sui blockchain. NCSoft participated in Mysten Labs' $300 million Series B fundraising round last year.
Com2us Plans Multiple NFT Games
Com2us, a versatile South Korean gaming company, created and published Summoners War. The studio is very interested in blockchain-based games and is currently working on projects based on NFTs and cryptocurrency integrations via the XPLA blockchain.
In a letter, the company's U.S. President Kyu Lee stated that the company plans to develop 10 to 15 blockchain games per year, with the majority of them being for mobile devices.
WeMade to Launch NFT-based Fishing Game
Wemade promoted its cryptocurrency gaming platform Wemix Play at the Game Developers Conference in March 2023. Wemix Play, according to a representative from Wemade, aims to serve as a cryptocurrency game equivalent to the Steam store.
World Fishing Championship is a new fishing game for Android devices released by the Korean game publisher Wemade. R1B and Night Crows are two additional blockchain games that the company intends to release this year. R1B, a baseball game, and Night Crows, a high-concept fantasy MMORPG, are being converted into Web3 games in order to compete with international competitors.

2023.06.03 23:32 jetblackswan Where to go next with my BS degree?
Hi all! Thought I would post here for some advice. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture, and haven't yet gone back for my Master's as I'm not even sure Architecture is 100% where I want to go. I joined the program/degree not on the heaviest reasons, but I know I can design. I love the conceptual design side of things moreso, and excelled in earlier design studios (before we had to start focusing on the details of structure/facade). Again, I know I can make something look good, I can design decently (however, i was never a straight A student and definitely disappointed teachers and peers), and I can physically DRAW (which everything has shifted towards computer-based design naturally). I think I want to take my degree and expertise in the direction towards the space industry. I grew up with NASA pretty much next door to where I live (had the chance to speak with the ground control crew back in elementary school, actually), had the chance to design and draw schematics for basic rockets for rocketry courses, and got an honorable mention for a space capsule design challenge I did in college. With this background what I've grown with, and seeing I've never strongly been wanting to be an architect since I was really young (i wasn't one of those people who at age 10 wanted for sure to be an architect when i grew up. never had that strong strong drive like other peers i know have had), and I think that I'd like to take my existing degree and apply my knowledge of structure and design in the direction of space and aerospace, ideally designing for extraterrestrial or lunar or martian space habitation bases, which moreso stems from engineering rather than the expertise of architects (although i'm not dismissing architecture, i'm sure they are needed with this, but it seems more of the design for what I want to do rests more on an engineer rather than an architect). I've also had much trouble obtaining necessary employment/experience at an architecture firm to confirm if that's what I want to do, and I just turned 30 and am looking to move out of where I live (as it's a small-ish/mid-sized town, not the most opportunities + I've had major bad luck in my field for years) and I'd like to move by the Fall at this point (ideally. still figuring it out), I've failed to get into grad school(s) within the last year...
With my existing Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree, should I continue to apply apply apply to firms for entry level/internship experience at an Architecture firm so that I know whether to get a Master's? Should I actually be headed back to school for my Master's in Architecture degree instead (i'm real sick of where I live (lowkey depressed here) and work at a call center making ends meet and would rather not spend another 2+ years stuck where I am honestly)? Should I restart my schooling and obtain a second degree in Aerospace Engineering for what I moreso want to do? Do I look into other employment avenues into the space and aerospace and architecture-adjacent fields (like industrial/product design (highly conceptual for me which could be fitting and is basically architecture on the small scale, and COULD have some application for space design), digital fabrication (which i have done some projects in college. designing on the computer and then physically printing), sustainability (another interest in terms of Earth's climate change especially), a focus on extreme weather architecture (likely in need of further schooling and design for harsh environments like the desert, for hurricane-prone areas, and the arctic, and the like), urban planning, transportation... honestly the list goes on and I love exploring and reading on all facets of the design process. Do I also look into life support systems/ECLSS (as I saw another redditor recommend) and astrobiology and interior space-craft-related (& control panels/living) areas?? There's so much to explore, I love it and hate it. I've also looked into and applied for different analog astronaut opportunities as a potential opportunity!)? But ANY feedback would be appreciated where best to take my existing BS degree that I have and how best to leverage and use it.

2023.06.03 23:32 gallifreyansunset Did not grow up around...
Another post reminded me of this, so figured I'd share with the group.
This man clearly didn't grow up around putting shit away. Did a grocery run and unloaded groceries? Bags all over the floor. Made himself a sandwich? All the ingredients left on the counter. Received a package from Amazon? You guessed it, all the packaging just sits in the middle of the room until I put it away. The list goes on, but you get the picture. There aren't many things that enrage me, but this ...oh, this makes me seethe and contemplate bodily harm. Like I don't have enough to do, cleaning up after three very creative and active little monsters! I have to keep putting away shit he leaves all over the place...ugh...
And if you're wondering whether I've mentioned this to him, you bet I have! In so many different ways! I tried pointing out that it's difficult to get things done when there's clutter that needs to be cleared prior to starting, I've mentioned it in the process of cleaning up said clutter, I've asked him directly, I've even done the whole "it's so much easier to keep the house clean when we make sure to put our shit away" discussion, during which he dutifully nods and says he completely agrees with the sentiment and then goes right back to leaving shit all over the place.
Should cut him some slack though, as he clearly didn't grow up around putting shit away.... his parents visited recently and FIL does THE SAME F$#@ING THING!
Thanks for reading my rant...back to putting empty boxes into the recycling bin.

2023.06.03 23:31 stlatos Fortunatov’s Law in Context
Fortunatov’s Law states that in Skt. dentals became retroflex after l, then l disappeared. This fits with Skt. l likely being retroflex, as sometimes preserved in Kh. (Skt. kīlā́la-s \ kīlālá-m ‘sweet drink / biestings? / buttermilk?’, kilāṭa- ‘cheese’, Kh. kiḷàḷ). A list of *lC here https://avzaagzonunaada.wordpress.com/2021/07/02/example-post-3/
. However, this “law” is not regular, since some VlC > VC, others > V:C, others > VCh, others unclear. I’ll add some more showing various outcomes:
*bhals-? > bhaṣá-s ‘barking/baying’, bhāṣa- ‘speech’, Li. balsas ‘voice’
*g^elt- > jaṭhára- ‘stomach’, Go. in-kilþs ‘pregnant’, OE cild, E. child
*kh2ald- \ *kxald-? > *kaldo- > kaḍa- ‘dumb’, Go. halts ‘*broken > lame’
*kald-? > khaḍ- ‘divide/break’, khaṇḍ- ‘divide/break/destroy’, khaḍgá-s \ khaŋgá-s ‘sword’, OIr claideb ‘sword’
*g^helh3to- > hárita- ‘yellow(ish) / pale (yellow/red) / green(ish)’, Av. zairita- ‘yellow’
*g^hlh3to-m > hāṭaka-m ‘gold’, Go. gulþ, E. gold
*melno- > MIr. mell, Gae. meal ‘hill’, Irish meal ‘sphere/lump/knob/knoll/heap’, Skt. máṇḍa- ‘circle/circularound’
*meldno-? ‘slow’ > Skt. manda-, Kh. malála ‘late’, Ku. mǝlaŋ ‘slowly’, R. medlennyj
*(s)mlhno- > Latvian milna ‘cloth / garment’, Persian *mandō >> G. mandúas ‘woolen cloak’
*krt- ‘cut’? > kaṭú- ‘pungent/bitter’ (if not Drav.)
*pelhtno- > palitá- ‘aged/old/grey’, G. pelitnós
*pelhdno-? > G. pelitnós, *paldna- > pāṇḍú- ‘white (yellow)’, Sa. palú ‘grey hair’ (if not Drav., see https://www.reddit.com/Dravidiology/comments/13tilb6/pie_pekws_cook_ripen_drav_pa%E1%BA%93nd_ripen_grow_old/
It seems like an optional change with an intermediate x (since xt > xth or VxC > V:C would be likely, and fit in with PIE h2, also likely = x). This would explain why *g^hlh3to-m > hāṭaka-m could occur with loss of h3 (if h3 was a fricative, a cluster like xxWt > xt or similar would be expected). If the older sound(s) are preserved in Kh., descriptions of ḷ as either retroflex or velarized (L) could be old, with most ḷC > LC, then LC > xC in Vedic Skt. The opt. nature of all this would also help explain apparent als and ah2s = xs merging as āṣ (*wah2pos- > L. vapor, *wah2spo- > Skt. vāṣpá-s ‘steam/vapor’). Again, this is not regular, and also varies by language (*bhah2so-, *bhah2sno- > G. phḗnē \ phínis ‘bearded vulture?’, Skt. bhāsa-, MP bāz ‘hawk/falcon’, Ps. bāṣa).
Also, *r sometimes shows the same changes: *karsto- > Rom. karšt / kašt, G. káston ‘wood’, kāṣṭhá-m ‘stick / (piece of) wood/timber’; *per(s)ni- > Skt. pāṇí- ‘hoof/hand’, Kh. póong, Kv. přõ ‘foot of cow/horse’. This seems to fit into my theory that many ex. of r > 0 come from r > R (uvular) https://www.reddit.com/etymology/comments/zkgi2m/latin_pr%C4%93x_request_armenian_a%C5%82ersank_a%C5%82a%C4%8Dank/
. If so, in Skt. both l > L > x and r > R > X might have existed. Most IE do not merge l and r, so intermediate l > L in Indo-Iraian might allow back L and R to merge in most words. This explains why r > 0 is so common in most of the IE ex., with very few l > 0, but the opposite is seen in Skt. (in the same environment, see *splendh- > L. splend-, Li. spindėti ‘shine’; *sprend(h)- > OE sprind ‘agile/lively’, E. sprint, Skt. spandate ‘throb/shake/quivekick’). This seems irregular, as seen by Skt. 0 vs. Dardic r above, and variants in other IE (G. *mrkW-? > márptō ‘seize/grasp’, map- ‘seize’).
Indo-Iranian is known for the merger of r & l, but Armenian also shows a lot of changes of PIE r > l and l > r https://www.reddit.com/IndoEuropean/comments/13zombu/ie_merger_of_r_l/
. If this could be shown to be related to R and L also, it would support this theory. Arm. words with both l \ ł exist (gayl\gaył ‘wolf’), and *l > ł seems to occur for no reason in some. This ł might have been pronounced as L then R. The changes of *l > ł / x are supposedly seen in: Arm. pl. sanduł-k` / sandux-k` ‘laddestairs’, acuł / acux ‘soot/coal’, gazał \ gazax ‘ashes/embers’. If h2 = x, the opposite in *swaxdu(r)- > Skt. svādú- ‘sweet’, *xwaxtur > *xwałtür > Arm. k`ałc`r ‘sweet’. If there was also h2 = x > X > R in *n-bhah2sk^e- > *nbha(r)sk^e- > TB mrausk-, a complete series of optional changes linking these sounds in both directions would exist.
This stage with R > X also has the benefit of explaining words with Cr and rC with the same change. See:
*deruno- > *derno- > *denro- > G. déndron ‘tree’, Skt. daṇḍá- ‘staff’
*enro- ‘inner’ > *endro- > Ks. ónḍrak ‘egg’, Skt. āṇḍá-m \ aṇḍá- ‘egg / testicle’, *jendro > OCS je,dro, R. jadró ‘kernel/core’
*bhal- ‘swell’ > OHG ballo, ON böllr ‘ball / testicle’, W. balleg ‘bag/sack’, Skt. bhāṇḍa-m ‘pot’
If Ph. bámbalon \ bábalon ‘genitals’ is related to the above, *bhalVmbo- > *bhalmbo- > *bhalndo- > bhāṇḍa-m might be possible, showing another change for -lmb-.
