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! :D

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 Hero Faffory Page 1: Autotomise by Rahiden and Niyyan's Alphabet by Rahiden

:bulletgreen: 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!

:bulletblack: Anyway, that is all. Hope you enjoyed that little insight into Philosophy of Science :D

Is there some kinda database somewhere that I can use to look up just what the flak all those different name-prefix-symbols mean? Because I'm really curious and I want to find out! Also congrats!

"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. "

I'm going to let you know something fascinating about this: even if you're talking about unrelated themes, you'll end up mentioning a bit of yourself. Every.Single.Time. :la: Think hard.

PS: methinks you forgot to change the user icon/username at the top of the journal.

Yes, I was thinking that even while I was writing "I've been researching..." :XD:

And nope, that's a default setting with this journal skin. Or at least, I think so. This Premium thing is confusing ;___;

That's great to hear man, and all this about induction is quite fascinating.

Hmmmm pretty interesting. :) Its stuff like this that makes me sad that I had to drop out of college. Cause I'd like to learn more about this and so many other things. Now I feel dumb and a failure. :iconsobbingplz: Oh well.

Nah, this stuff isn't the kind of thing we learn at school (not at my age, at least) - there's nothing stopping you from reading into something purely out of curiosity, like I did :D

Here where I live, we have Philosophy in the 10th and 11th grades. Induction and deduction are mentioned during the 11th ._. I don't remember jack shit about the details, though. Philosophy was a very badly implemented school subject with some of the worst teachers I've ever seen. I completely lost what little interest I had in it as soon as I started the 10th grade.

Yeah your right. Well I try not to "obtain useless information," meaning that while its interesting, fascinating, and really good stuff to know, if I don't have a direct need or use for it, I try not to hold onto it. Therefore, what I try to do in my life is to go acquire the need to know things that I'm interested. At this point, where priorities are set, I'm mostly trying to learn about being "music industry savvy." That and computers. Though I don't mess with computer stuff cause one can quickly screw something up, not know what or how they screwed it up, therefore can't even fix it. So I don't go messin' with things that I don't for sure know how to do.

On a related note. How you enjoyin' that premium membership so far? Also, got any particular MOCs you'd like critiqued? I suggest you make a new folder with all the ones that are "critiquable" so people can just go into your gallery and know which those are, like in mine. *nudge nudge*

Like I said, pretty much all of the newer MOCs have critiques turned on :D
(And jeebus, I've just finished writing a 2,300-word essay xD Give me some time to recover!)

I did Swordfish. Any particular ones you'd like me to have at?

I'd prefer it if the person writing the critique chose which MOC to write about (and whether to write anything at all ;))

Well that's the thing. I don't mind. I would critique any of your MOCs if able to. And I could go through and do all of them. But to avoid doing this in excess I was asking if there were anyones in particular you'd like to but at the top of my list.

I suppose, if you're that eager, I can't complain ;)

Hmm... well, you did say that the swordfish isn't your favorite of my MOCs, or in your opinion my best work, so why don't you start with your favourite? I'd be interested to see :D

When you said that Induction is Induced, I was thinking Inception

Oh yeah, philosophy of science! I just wrote an exam in under that topic xD
I had a lecture course over my first semester, because it's basic stuff for architecture students, I guess. It was a lot of fun! Most of my fellow students never went there, but for me it was quiet interesting.
Explaining the difference between induction and deduction was even one of the question in the exam xD
