Premium membership! Argh! Aaaah! Gaaah! For a YEAR! Aaagh! Raaagh!
I should probably provide some back story instead of just spazzing out. I received the Premium Membership via a deviantArt promotion. This promotion involved asking people who already had Premium Memberships to suggest a friend who was worthy of one, and as a result both would receive a 1-year Premium Membership. Well, 3rdeye88 very kindly did the honours, and look at us now!
I've turned on Critiques for my MOCs that I deem to be 'worthy', which is essentially the recent stuff from my Bionicle MOCs gallery. I've also turned Critiques on for and
I've realised that virtually everything I write in my journals has something to do with me personally; I haven't talked about a random topic in a long time. Well, here goes.
I've been researching Philosophy of Science for an essay competition, and I've found that it's really interesting. Philosophy of Science is essentially the study of the methodology behind science - how we come to certain conclusions, how and whether we can extrapolate what we observe, that kind of thing. One of the main concepts of Philosophy of Science is called induction, which is the reasoning tool that says "This llama is brown. That llama is brown. Therefore ALL LLAMAS ARE BROWN MUAHAHAHAH." This has brought much debate in the scientific community, since one could easily find an albino llama or a Super Llama and prove the previous hypothesis false, no? And yet, at the same time, we often have no choice but to resort to induction. By typing these words, I am inducing the fact that they will produce a comprehendible message to send to my wonderful watchers - indeed, the entire concept of induction is itself induced, since we only rely on induction because it's worked before. Cyclical reasoning, yay!
Anyway, that is all. Hope you enjoyed that little insight into Philosophy of Science
