Responding to a few questions, (and some firefox issue)

in #messages7 years ago

For some reason typing into the memo box in wallet crashes me, it seems that every letter I type takes about 10 seconds to show up there, and if I type an entire sentence it registers them all as some queue then jams for several minutes or crashes entirely. This is by doing a transfer with a memo as a message (basically the only way messages are sent on steem)

So that is the context for anyone stumbling upon this, I had some questions in messages and crash trying to return the answer. Just to mention I'm not trying to be shady, I will most likely be able to return the transferred STEEM ;)

In all reality not many people follow me, but if you do and randomly find this more power to you, although this is probably not much interesting for you anyway, I don't know, you decide.

The questions from @locikll are:
have you seen this TED Talk (On the "Paradox of Choice"): [link] ? If so did you get the idea of your name from that? or as you said on your first post from the idea of the quantum mechanical interpretation of the probabilistic nature of "Choice"?

My response:
I had seen the TED talk, I also bought the book :)
Although, it's about something different than my interpretations of the title, I did get my name from it but as soon as I had seen the title I had a different view of what it would be. At some early age the idea of a deterministic universe or 'fate' was shown to me, and that's how I started acting so randomly, I think the way it started was me trying to figure out how I could break destiny, and by attrition if I did, then everyone else would too without even knowing I exist or what I'm doing because everything someone does affects everyone else in some small way, increasing over time. So then this way of thinking changed over time to become something else, and after doing it for so long I have a lot of theories and have been drawn into a lot of interesting topics that I think might relate. The reason I hold this name is simply to serve as a reminder for me and anyone that knows how I work, I did not decide to write this, or rather I decided to write hundreds of versions of this and this is the one you see. If I make a choice to flip a coin to choose between 2 options, then really there are 3 options, but I always choose the coin, which means I have chosen not to make any choice. Someone might think it's the easy way out of making decisions, but in my experience the opposite is true because I have to find multiple ways to move forward, every day.

As a side note, I found the Paradox of Choice TED talk the same way I found steemit, completely randomly and that's possibly why it had such an impression on me. Follow a trail of 10 random links determined by coin tosses and end on something like that, I probably sat there for 10 minutes thinking before actually clicking the link.

Nice man, Glad to hear the reply :), the Memo box lag happened to me too, a way around this (for me at least) was to type it up in notepad and then copy-paste into the memo.

Ps. The 0.5 Steem was for you to keep :P, typically memo conversations are sent with 0.001 Steem, and I intended for you to keep the majority as I enjoyed your first post and wanted you to keep going/become more of a part of the steem community :)

very cool thanks ^_^
