As with most philosophies, this can’t really be proven or disproven; there’s no sense trying to argue someone out of the opinion that Phil is an asshole for not acting the way famous people are supposed to act – or, crucially, for not acting the way *we* would act in his place. This is a popular argument because it’s an argument you can’t lose – no one can empirically prove whether Phil is or isn’t an asshole. What gets elided in this argument is the assumption that famous assholes – people who don’t act the way famous people are *supposed* to act – deserve to be *punished*.

We think of plants as stationary beings, but they're not. They just live on different timescales to animals like us.

All plants move, their leaves jostling amongst each other, trying to catch the optimal amount of light. But mostly, we don't notice.

Sometimes, I catch my plants moving when their leaves brush past each other. Usually after I adjust their lights, the fussy little things.

Been tinkering with my muscle insertion/origin diagram again.

It looks pretty cool without the bones and labels E:

this is showing the original words on the left, and the "sounded out" words from the model on the right. the model I trained going the other way (orthography to phoneme features) performs pretty close to published baselines for similar grapheme-to-phoneme models (phoneme error rate = ~7%, word error rate = ~30%), but there are comparatively fewer papers about phoneme-to-grapheme models, so I'm not sure if this is "good" or not

going back to the regular seq2seq networks, I'm trying to do some quantitative evaluation. the phoneme features to orthography model gets... ~60% of words wrong, and ~12% of letters wrong (working on samples a few thousand words from cmudict), but its guesses seem... reasonable? not sure how to talk about this
