This is the first "blog" of any kind I've ever had, so it's probably not the greatest...

Just a little snippet about me:

I'd like to consider myself relatively tech-savvy; obviously I use Linux (Arch to be precise; K.I.S.S. FTW), and I enjoy learning new things about computers in general (both software and hardware-related).

This blog is mostly just for whenever I feel like telling the world about my experiences with computers/Linux (or just life in general), or just posting for the hell of it.

"Scientific imperialism" and the proverbial "death" of art in culture

Posted 09-29-2011 at 03:04 PM by MrCode

Yes, this blog has more or less become my angst dump, at least as of recent. I know I should probably take this someplace other than LQ, but a) I feel somewhat "safe" here, and b) I don't know where I would take it even if I did take it elsewhere.

Finally got a little perspective...maybe

As you may have guessed from my previous two posts, I've been constantly arguing with myself over the old (very old, apparently) "free will vs. determinism" debate. I've done a little more reading (not just on Wikipedia) about it, and I've come to realize that my perception that there's "determinism everywhere I go" is rather a false one. Sure, there are many scientific and philosophical theories which try to discredit free will as a viable reality, but at the same time, there...
