from Telmina's notes

今日は7月7日。年に一度のたなぼた、もとい七夕の日です。

 しかし、私は今日も仕事です。それどころか、年に一度は会いたいと思っている人に対しさえも、もう何年も会うことを許されておりません。

 数年前まで個人的に好意を抱いていた異性から突然絶縁されてからしばらく経過していますが、自分はいまだにそれを受け容れられておりません。

 私の人生は、多めに見積もっても常人の十分の一程度の幸せしか享受できておりません。そして少なく見積もっても常人の十倍は不幸を押しつけられています。

 だからせめて年に一度ぐらいは、好きな人と一緒に過ごしたいのです。

 周囲に順応できない異端者には、それすらも許されないのでしょうか?

Le soir, moment de relâchement,

De rêverie, d'éclipse sur le temps.

Une multitude d'envies sans but.

Un coin de la tête toujours en rut.

La nuit, les nuages sont plus visibles.

L'électricité, notre drogue,

Nous offre sa panoplie de shots.

La beauté digitale est transmissible.

Seul allongé sans rien faire,

On se sent entouré de toutes parts,

Sollicité par des idées éphémères.

Plaisir simple de se sentir vivant,

De saisir dans le moment cette chance rare,

Ne rien devoir et profiter du présent.

Un día como hoy, 6 de julio pero de 1528, Don Carlos I creó el título del Marquesado del Valle de Oaxaca y se le otorgó a Don Hernán Córtés. Para este efecto, compartimos la reseña de la siguiente ponencia:

El 28 de abril del 2022 fue llevada a cabo en el encuentro regional de estudiantes de historia centro-sur con sede en la Universidad Autónoma de Tlaxcala: la conferencia de la heroicidad y la tragedia en la vida del Marqués del valle de Oaxaca por parte del correligionario perteneciente al Círculo Tradicionalista Celedonio de Jarauta (Ciudad de Méjico): Víctor Manuel Álvarez López, estudiante de historia en la Universidad Anáhuac México Norte.

La sala en la que se impartió la ponencia se encontraba llena de, en su mayoría detractores que siguen creyendo y propagando leyendas negras creadas por los enemigos de la hispanidad. En su introducción, primero se agradeció tanto a la universidad como a los organizadores del evento y se manifestó que era un honor encontrarse en la Muy noble y muy leal ciudad de Tlaxcala.

Ya comenzada la conferencia se comenzó con dar razones de la misma, por ejemplo con la elección del título, el cual viene de una mezcla entre las definiciones de historia y tragedia dadas por Aristóteles, siendo la primera aquella ciencia que estudia los acontecimientos reales del pasado, y la segunda hechos ficticios cuya función es la del conmover al espectador centrada en narrar la vida de un personaje que es un héroe dentro de la concepción clásica.

Y para comprender y hacer filosofía de la historia acerca de la vida del conquistador de Medellín, se usó lo planteado por Jaime Balmes en El Criterio, acerca de la suma importancia de las fuentes primarias para conocer a un personaje.

Después nuestro correligionario explicó el contexto hispano y el prehispánico para dar a entender el cómo ambas sociedades estaban acostumbradas a largos períodos de guerras y del porqué gran parte de Mesoamérica toma partido por la monarquía hispánica.

Posteriormente se habló de la heroicidad del conquistador que se resume en: el no rencor y el perdón hacia sus enemigos, la visión de los indígenas como posibles conversos y súbditos dignos de respeto, respeto a las autoridades mesoamericanas, la caridad y, por último, Cortés como el capitán de la unificación.

Pasando de la heroicidad, se llegó a la tragedia en la vida del Marqués compuesta por: la muerte de Moctezuma, la Noche Triste, la muerte de su primera esposa, la expedición de las Hibueras, el conflicto de la primera audiencia, el desastre de Argel y su muerte con sus circunstancias. Sumando las difamaciones a posteriori hechas por Joel R. Poinsett y el intento de profanación de los huesos por parte de la masonería Yorkina, incluso mencionando que ni siquiera los paganos griegos llegaban a tanto por despreciar la profanación de cadáveres como puede verse en la tragedia Antígona.

Y aunque el tiempo no fue suficiente, originalmente se tenía planeado hacer una comparación entre las Cartas de relación y la Ciudad de Dios para demostrar la influencia del obispo de Hipona sobre el conquistador.

Ya en la sesión de preguntas y respuestas, el público hizo preguntas en forma de ataque con las cuales Víctor respondió de manera estoica a cada una de ellas. Por ejemplo, se le preguntó acerca de la rebelión de Cortés frente al gobernador de Cuba, Diego Velásquez, en dónde se respondió con relación al derecho hispánico a desobedecer el mal gobierno de una autoridad local. En la última pregunta se preguntó: “¿Para quién era un héroe?” Y se respondió “Para Mesoamérica”, lo cual ocasionó un escandaló dentro de la sala.

Aunque a la mayoría de los presentes no les gustó la ponencia, hubo algunos que, a pesar de no estar de acuerdo con todas las ideas presentadas, felicitaron a nuestro correligionario y hablaron con él después de la conferencia.

JOURNAL D'UNE PETITE SOURIS À TÔKYÔ (Ichikawa) (4)

Samedi 2 Juillet 2022

Nous avions rendez-vous dans le quartier de Chiba avec notre sœur aînée, elle nous invitait à manger le bœuf de Kobe dans un super restaurant très cher et très fameux. Je passe sur le repas, effectivement très cher et très fameux, on a bu du Bordeaux parfait, après ça on a fini très tard dans la nuit dans un bar en buvant de la vodka, pour finir j’étais bourrée, bourrée aussi d’émotions et d’informations et c’est de ça que je vais parler.

Je présente d’abord l’épouse de mon frère aîné : elle a fait des études, à Tôkyô, mais aussi en Angleterre 3 ans, elle parle un anglais très beau, pas comme mon américain de petite fille. Elle est spécialisée dans le droit commercial international, c’est comme ça que mon frère l’a rencontrée puis épousée. Elle ne s’est jamais entendue avec le père, qui détestait les femmes intellectuelles, et ça a commencé à faire réfléchir son mari…

J’ai appris comme ça que notre père tenait un journal, un journal abominable, qui a bouleversé mon frère quand il a commencé à lire. Mon père me haïssait des la naissance, car je prenais la place du 4e fils qu’il voulait et maman ne pouvait plus avoir d’enfant. C’est pour ça il n’a même pas voulu s’occuper de mon prénom, c’est un moine, consulté par ma grand-mère qui l’a choisi. Il ne m’a pratiquement jamais regardée et au départ de ma Nanny, il m’a fourguée à son frère pour ne plus entendre parler de moi. Mes frères ont été élevés dans la détestation et surtout le mépris de cette petite fille qui était assimilée à une étrangère. Après mon premier viol, un peu avant 15 ans, je suis tombée malade, je ne me nourrissais plus, la version officielle c’était que je faisais une dépression après la mort aux USA de ma Nanny. Je ne savais même pas qu’elle était morte, on ne me l’avait pas dit, pas plus qu’on me donnait les lettres qu’elle m’écrivait. Quand j’ai tout déballé mon sac, ce fameux jour vers 16 ans, la version officielle était que j’étais devenue folle, et on m’a expédiée sous sédatifs dans le Hokkaidô « pour me soigner dans une clinique spécialisée », tu parles, je me suis retrouvée au bagne pour 3 ans dans cette secte. Mon père était au courant des traitements qu’on me faisait, peut-être pas en détail, mais il savait que j’étais très mal traitée, possible qu’il en tirait plaisir, comme une vengeance, mais le contrat était clair : le débarrasser de moi définitivement. En fait il m’avait condamnée à mort et la nuit ou je l’ai enfin croisée de si prés, il était d’accord pour qu’on me laisse mourir, il y aurait eu un certificat de décès en bonne forme et c’était réglé, ça n’a pas marché, un miracle. Il y a eu beaucoup de miracles dans ma vie. Quand la police m’a trouvée et tout ce qui s’en est suivi, mon frère a été sidéré d’apprendre d’un coup la vérité, mais l’emprise de notre père était tellement forte que personne n’a osé réagir, et il n’a pas réalisé complètement. Après il y a eu Nara, le scandale des photos lesbiennes et à nouveau tous les torts étaient de mon côté, forcément. C’est à peu près en même temps qu’il s’est marié, un peu plus tard il a appris sa stérilité, puis notre père est mort et j''ai renoncé à l’héritage, tout ça l’avait beaucoup troublé encore et en plus, de France je l’ai provoqué en duel. Ma belle-sœur n’était pas d’accord qu’il accepte. Elle pensait que j’allais perdre, mon frère étant d’un niveau officiellement supérieur à moi, et trouvait pas bien qu’il se plaise à ça, on ne se conduit pas comme ça avec sa petite sœur, au risque de la rendre infirme, elle pensait que j’avais eu assez… Quand il est revenu il avait complètement changé, elle m’a dit, devenu très songeur et c’est à partir de ça qu’il a commencé à fouiller dans les archives de notre père et fait toutes ces découvertes qui ont changé complètement sa façon de voir et créé cet énorme sentiment de culpabilité, il s’est senti déshonoré c’est pour ça qu’il a voulu me faire des excuses formelles et publiques et qu’il a poussé nos deux frères à faire autant. Notre père sembla avoir vu la stérilité de ses trois fils comme une punition, pas pour ce qu’il m’avait fait vivre, il n’a jamais eu un mot de regret pour moi, punition pour la dureté avec laquelle il avait élevé ses trois garçons, parce que eux non plus n’ont pas rigolé tous les jours, surtout mon troisième frère, rêveur et esthète, beaucoup plus attiré par la littérature et la poésie que par le monde des affaires. Tous les trois ont été forcés à afficher une virilité bruyante et agressive… Je ressors de ça avec le sentiment d’un triste gâchis par la faute d’un fou, un père tyrannique abusif qui n’aura semé que le malheur autour de lui, mais nous sommes encore jeunes, le passé ne se change pas et il nous manquera toujours une enfance heureuse et commune, mais peut-être, avec le temps allons-nous réussir à construire un présent paisible, ou même affectueux ? Je sens notre sœur et frère aînés vouloir le tenter et je suis partante, je n’ai plus de rancune.

Boredom and Real life

Human achievement is everything. Be successful, own a house, propagate more of your kind onto the planet. Happiness, success, smiles and ambition. Radiate and flex, wealth shining in the sinews of your forearms gleaming with a Rolex or an iWatch, photograph to venerate, bow to the masters of success. Us, in the dream, toiling, imagining the greats: The capitalists, the artists, people immortalized through pop-culture and collective memory. People who have given words to our words, meaning beyond any meaning can derive from our problems of existence.

“I know you, I know you. You're the only serious person in the room, aren't you, the only one who understands, and you can prove it by the fact that you've never finished a single thing in your life. You're the only well-educated person, because you never went to college, and you resent education, you resent social ease, you resent good manners, you resent success, you resent any kind of success, you resent God, you resent Christ, you resent thousand-dollar bills, you resent Christmas, by God, you resent happiness, you resent happiness itself, because none of that's real. What is real, then? Nothing's real to you that isn't part of your own past, real life, a swamp of failures, of social, sexual, financial, personal...spiritual failure. Real life. You poor bastard. You don't know what real life is, you've never been near it. All you have is a thousand intellectualized ideas about life. But life? Have you ever measured yourself against anything but your own lousy past? Have you ever faced anything outside yourself? Life! You poor bastard.”

These words had a stronger effect on me than the morning double espresso as they put a mirror to my thoughts, the only part being off was one of being a college graduate. It made me wonder the cynicism that has gone under my skin, finding connection with other cynics wandering over the dense clouds of social media or public art. These words from William Gaddis reflects my face filled with the faces of thousands of humans, I exist as the fragments of all those who have lived before me who themselves are fragments of the people before them. These thoughts, the endless permutations of words and ideas that permeate the deep recesses of our everyday life mean nothing, our brains whittle away in idle chatter over topics both real and imaginary. An endless news feed, problems that require our attention and re-attention, the world going to shit and back, our hooplas and hurrays after day's work over a beer.. all events where our thoughts parse invisible meaning feeding into the shadow of our selves. Who are we? Thought processing, carbon based machines that have turned their lenses elsewhere.

What is real life? At what point do the vagaries of the everyday structured around capitalist ideals of efficiency and profit blend into the metaphysical aspects of living? The ethics and moral considerations of living in societies, our traditions, our lives synthesized to a point there is nothing beyond the artifice of these systems to imagine our place in the world. Our hope is through the passive rejection of what we're offered and wait in meek silence for a natural ending to the boredom we've trapped ourselves in.

from Weekly Musings

Welcome to this edition of Weekly Musings, where each Wednesday I share some thoughts about what's caught my interest in the last seven days.

This edition of the letter has been sitting in various stages of completion for a few weeks now. But over that time, other ideas in other areas pulled me away from what you're about to read. This week, though, everything jelled rather nicely.

With that out of the way, let's get to this week's musing.

On Technology Before Its Time

In late 2021, a short documentary wandered into my field of vision. A documentary that almost immediately gripped my attention. A documentary that appealed to both my interest in technology and my nostalgia for technologies past.

The subject of that short film was the Handspring Treo. The Treo was a line of smartphones that came into being in the early part of this century, — about half a decade or so before the original iPhone and early Android-powered phones. Created by a company called Handspring Inc., and later taken over by Palm Inc., the Treo, in a number of ways, established the template for phones to come.

And while the Treo line did gain a level of success and popularity (including being the phone of choice for government agents in early seasons of the TV series 24), those devices soon (at least soon in technology terms) faded away.

Several factors led to that. A key one, for me, is that the Treo was an example in a long line of what I call technology before its time. Technology that was visionary and innovative, but which showed up on the scene a bit (sometimes more than a bit) too early to be successful. To plant the seed to become widespread. To take a more prominent place in our daily lives and in the history of modern technology.

Since watching the documentary about the Treo, and in fact long before that, I've been pondering why some interesting and potentially useful technology, interesting inventions, gets put into the before its time bucket. For me, there are three main reasons:

First, the technology itself isn't quite ready for prime time. It might be too big or too bulky. The physical components on which the technology is built isn't at a stage at which it could be miniaturized and still pack enough punch to make the technology useful.

On top of that, what's running on the technology, the all-important software or firmware layer, might not be easy to use. The interface could be awkward or balky. The software or firmware might require more in the way of resources to run efficiently. It might not be able to scale up (or be scaled down) to take advantage of certain functions.

Second, the services required to support the technology might not be up to the job. They might not be fast enough, widespread enough, or robust or reliable enough. Early smartphones like the IBM Simon and the Nokia Communicator, for example, were held back in part by a lack of high speed cellular data or wireless internet.

Batteries powering devices either couldn't hold a charge long enough to power a device during daily use, weren't small enough, or weren't inexpensive enough to make them viable. In the case of electric vehicles, until recently the charging infrastructure just wasn't there.

Finally, the wider public might just not have been ready for a particular technology. That technology would have been a curiosity, something that appealed to a small niche. The ordinary person on the street didn't, at least at the time the technology popped up, have a good use case for it. Or any use case. They didn't see whatever potential the technology had. They couldn't see how it would fit into their lives. And, if the technology was expensive (which new technology often is), it would have been difficult to justify the expense.

And combining that last point with the others I discussed earlier in this musing resulted in a market that just wasn't large and broad enough to support the technology.

Eventually, thanks to Moore's law, economies of scale, and advances in various areas, some technology before its time does reach that so-called critical mass. It becomes part of our everyday lives, whether our work lives or our civilian ones.

Technology before its time isn't always an evolutionary dead end. It might become a step towards the development of something else. Or bits of it might become intertwined in or grafted on to the digital DNA of technologies that follow it.

We shouldn't forget the contribution that technology before its time made to the landscape. While companies that claim to be innovators will either neglect to mention it or deny it, more than a bit of technology before its time laid the groundwork for some of the wares those companies foist upon consumers. That alone makes it important for us to remember the technologies that came before.

Something to ponder.

يتمتع الأشخاص الحساسون برادار للإنذار المبكر. يلحظون أشياء لا يراها الآخرون. يلمسون مشاعر الشخص الآخر. واحد من كل خمسة أشخاص في العالم لديه هذه القوة الخارقة؛ أن يخوض الحياة بحساسية مرتفعة. الآلام تبدو أثقل على الروح مما هي عليه، لكن أبسط اللذات تحلّق بها عاليًا.

from The Sitting Log

...when it comes to Youtube channels, podcasts, etc?

All the marketing gurus (and many others who have the decency not to claim that they’re gurus) seem to say so.

The two biggest arguments I’ve heard are:

  • If there is no schedule, people won’t trust you (the creator)
  • If there is no schedule, you (the creator) won’t be motivated

This is interesting.

I, as the creator, don’t need a schedule to be motivated. Either I’m motivated or not.

And I, as the consumer, don’t trust a random stranger simply because they say they have a schedule.

I will, however, check if they have back episodes, back uploads, a backlist, all the back stuff. Those things, to me, mean more than the proclamation of a schedule. People who have a track record of creating a lot of stuff—either with a regular schedule or without—tend to always come back to creating something. That’s what I count on.


Monthly luck schedule

The only time I cared about regular updates on Youtube was for a Tarot reading channel. I don’t believe in Tarot readings (or palm readings or other kinds of readings), but this person had such a calming voice and talked SO WELL. I got the sense that she could conjure up an explanation for anything and everything. It was fascinating to listen to her talk.

One of her should-have-been regular contents was the “monthly” remote reading. (Apparently, it’s a thing on Youtube.) The problem was that she updated them late, all the time. Like, the “May” reading was uploaded on May 7th instead of May 1st or several days before the start of May. Sometimes she skipped months too.

Even though I didn’t rely on her uploads to determine my monthly schedule (I don’t know, maybe some people pick their lucky day to go on a first date), I thought, “But it doesn’t make sense! ¼ of May is already gone! How is this supposed to be useful to anybody who actually believes in this?”

And so I stopped watching anything from that channel anymore. It didn’t matter how beautifully she talked and how soothing her voice was.


Evergreen

But other than that?

If someone had a vlog channel? A podcast about cat worshipping?

Then I don’t think I’d care if the vlogs are updated every Monday. I mean, not everyone must think that their every week is vlog-worthy, all the time. Maybe the person just had an uneventful week, and sometimes, uneventful weeks are nice to have. (Boredom is a luxury, although it often doesn’t seem that way.)

And I’d understand that cat worshipping doesn’t just happen on a schedule. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t.

Evergreen content is evergreen for a reason. It can be uploaded today, tomorrow, or three months later. It doesn’t really matter…

…unless the host/channel owner said that they’re gonna have a schedule. Then I might care about regular updates.

But even then, them missing an episode would have to happen a lot of times before I notice, because I don’t memorize all the various content creators’ schedules. My apps will update the feed or send an alert whenever the content is updated.


Fiction vs. nonfiction

BTW with fiction, the situation is completely different. If there is a story arc that continues over many episodes, I want to know that there is a regular update schedule. Say, if Netflix were to have a series where they don’t know when Episode 2 will come out, I won’t start watching.

But nonfiction? For content that has nothing to do with the calendar? I’ll probably never notice that something is or isn’t updated, until maybe half a year later, when I randomly decide to clean my subscription list. Then I may or may not unsubscribe from a creator who’s been inactive for 6 months.


Not organized enough

Why am I talking about this?

Because I find it interesting that there is this idea that a lot of consumers (listeners/viewers/readers) are keeping track of how often creators create something.

Personally, I’m not organized enough. I try to be organized in my own life, and even in that, I’m failing. So when someone else is missing their deadlines for entertainment content—especially free entertainment content that nobody owes me, and even more especially if that content doesn’t get better simply by forcing it to happen regularly—then I most likely will not notice.

Maybe I’m abnormal.
