    [–] The Raj - Wallpaper i made today w/ hidden Hindi text. cool_hand_luke -1 points ago in westworld

    Maybe I just don't let petty things bother me. I find life is much easier when you don't let stupid shit bother you.

    [–] Origin of "These violent delights..." quote cool_hand_luke 9 points ago in westworld

    It's a passphrase that accesses their memories... the bad ones especially.

    That's what is the trigger to overcoming barrier to conciousness - its suffering. This is also the key to overcoming the cognitive plateau. We see that James has overcome his ticks and motor function problems after the park breaks down. It also happens in the iteration that hears of his wife's death and his daughter's suicide.

    The key to everything becoming conscious or most human, is suffering.

    Bill doesn't intentionally sabotage the interviews, hes trying to see if the Jameses will function properly after they're aware of their situation. He and the engineers haven't figured out why yet. They can't because they were missing the Buddhist notion of "life is suffering".

    You've got a very low threshold for what you think is uncivil.

    In the series thus far, what is the scene that is fatherest back in the chronology?

    [–] Westworld - 2x05 "Akane No Mai" - Post-Episode Discussion cool_hand_luke 1 points ago in westworld

    Tucking this here for posterity.

    Bernard stole a copy of James Delos and put it into Abernathy at the behest of Ford. Possibly so that Ford could use it to wrestle control away from Bill.

    The evidence is the mirror storytelling technique between Bill/James and Arnold/Dolores. Think of it as an apology... Bill is to James as Arnold is to Dolores. You're not going to find a techincal/scientific evidence because the evidence is in the storytelling.

    Straight to the top with this!

    Did you think anyone out there didnt notice the reference?

    [–] "multiple contenders" cool_hand_luke 7 points ago in westworld

    Maeve's group, Dolores' group, and the Major Craddock group are all trying to get there.

    [–] Post Your Quick Questions for S2E5 "Akane No Mai" cool_hand_luke 1 points ago in westworld

    That's not exactly what I was getting at.

    The scenes between Bill and James are a repetition of a conversation they had before James died. Bill repeats it to see if the new host-James is the same cognitively as James before he died.

    Now, in order to make the hosts as realistic as possible, Ford and Arnold would most likely need to compare their creations to actual people. If they dont match, then go back to coding more and try again and repeat. The conversations that Bernard/Arnold has with Dolores seem to be based on this convention of having her be as real as possible - having "fidelity". Fidelity to what? I think it has to be to a real person.

    It's got nothing to do with putting a human conciousness into a host, but rather testing the copy against the original.

    Now with the conciousness transfer that James went through, I think that's a branch of what's going on with the company. Did Ford or Bernard know about it? I would suggest yes, which may have been the motivation for their actions.

    I'm not suggesting they're copies, but entirely based on a real human subject. And as we've seen this far with the Bernard/Dolores private conversations, they've been occurring since the very beginning.

    I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if we find that theres a scene that we've been shown already or a scene we may see soon that is between Bernard and the actual human Dolores.

    Now I really want to know what Hector’s speech was.

    "And the lesson is this! I once brought a honeycomb and a jackass to a brothel..."

    [–] Post Your Quick Questions for S2E5 "Akane No Mai" cool_hand_luke 2 points ago in westworld

    Were all of the original hosts (the special ones) real people at some point in the past?

    [–] [Spoilers] Has there been a reasonable explanation for the seemingly incompetent Delos security problem yet? cool_hand_luke 3 points ago in westworld

    Maybe the world's best security forces dont work for an amusement park?

    Stop expecting everyone to be the perfect representation of their profession. If you expected as much perfection of yourself as you do the show, you'd probably get more done at work.

    [–] Maeve is not telepathic, she's using the mesh network cool_hand_luke 1 points ago in westworld

    In theory, telepathy is not a function of our bodies

    What part of the host body is the code?

    [–] [Spoilers] Anyone else starting to find Dolores quiet unlikable? cool_hand_luke 6 points ago in westworld

    Yes, with all the guns and hating everyone that isn't just like her... I can totally see how shes just like a liberal.

    [–] That's... one way of putting it cool_hand_luke -4 points ago in westworld

    Learn how to act? Get a dialect coach?

    [–] Honestly, some people on this sub need to chill out... cool_hand_luke -1 points ago in westworld

    If the average commenter on this sub were any good telling stories, they'd already have jobs telling stories.

    [–] Maeve is not telepathic, she's using the mesh network cool_hand_luke 0 points ago in westworld

    As far as this show goes, theres pretty much zero difference between telepathy and a mesh network in practice.

    [–] Vegas fans wondering why other fans are hostile toward them making the Stanley Cup Finals in their inaugural season cool_hand_luke 2 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in nhl

    Theyre easily the most hated franchise.

    My point is that "championships are rigged" is probably the most retarded thing I've heard in the last month.
