  1. The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race. They have greatly increased the life-expectancy of those of us who live in “advanced” countries, but they have destabilized society, have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings to indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffering (in the Third World to physical suffering as well) and have inflicted severe damage on the natural world. The continued development of technology will worsen the situation. It will certainly subject human beings to greater indignities and inflict greater damage on the natural world, it will probably lead to greater social disruption and psychological suffering, and it may lead to increased physical suffering even in “advanced” countries.

  1. The industrial-technological system may survive or it may break down. If it survives, it MAY eventually achieve a low level of physical and psychological suffering, but only after passing through a long and very painful period of adjustment and only at the cost of permanently reducing human beings and many other living organisms to engineered products and mere cogs in the social machine. Furthermore, if the system survives, the consequences will be inevitable: There is no way of reforming or modifying the system so as to prevent it from depriving people of dignity and autonomy.

  1. If the system breaks down the consequences will still be very painful. But the bigger the system grows the more disastrous the results of its breakdown will be, so if it is to break down it had best break down sooner rather than later.

  1. We therefore advocate a revolution against the industrial system. This revolution may or may not make use of violence; it may be sudden or it may be a relatively gradual process spanning a few decades. We can’t predict any of that. But we do outline in a very general way the measures that those who hate the industrial system should take in order to prepare the way for a revolution against that form of society. This is not to be a POLITICAL revolution. Its object will be to overthrow not governments but the economic and technological basis of the present society.

  1. In this article we give attention to only some of the negative developments that have grown out of the industrial-technological system. Other such developments we mention only briefly or ignore altogether. This does not mean that we regard these other developments as unimportant. For practical reasons we have to confine our discussion to areas that have received insufficient public attention or in which we have something new to say. For example, since there are well-developed environmental and wilderness movements, we have written very little about environmental degradation or the destruction of wild nature, even though we consider these to be highly important.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF MODERN LEFTISM

  1. Almost everyone will agree that we live in a deeply troubled society. One of the most widespread manifestations of the craziness of our world is leftism, so a discussion of the psychology of leftism can serve as an introduction to the discussion of the problems of modern society in general.

  1. But what is leftism? During the first half of the 20th century leftism could have been practically identified with socialism. Today the movement is fragmented and it is not clear who can properly be called a leftist. When we speak of leftists in this article we have in mind mainly socialists, collectivists, “politically correct” types, feminists, gay and disability activists, animal rights activists and the like. But not everyone who is associated with one of these movements is a leftist. What we are trying to get at in discussing leftism is not so much movement or an ideology as a psychological type, or rather a collection of related types. Thus, what we mean by “leftism” will emerge more clearly in the course of our discussion of leftist psychology. (Also, see paragraphs 227-230.)

  1. Even so, our conception of leftism will remain a good deal less clear than we would wish, but there doesn’t seem to be any remedy for this. All we are trying to do here is indicate in a rough and approximate way the two psychological tendencies that we believe are the main driving force of modern leftism. We by no means claim to be telling the WHOLE truth about leftist psychology. Also, our discussion is meant to apply to modern leftism only. We leave open the question of the extent to which our discussion could be applied to the leftists of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

  1. The two psychological tendencies that underlie modern leftism we call “feelings of inferiority” and “oversocialization.” Feelings of inferiority are characteristic of modern leftism as a whole, while oversocialization is characteristic only of a certain segment of modern leftism; but this segment is highly influential.

FEELINGS OF INFERIORITY

  1. By “feelings of inferiority” we mean not only inferiority feelings in the strict sense but a whole spectrum of related traits; low self-esteem, feelings of powerlessness, depressive tendencies, defeatism, guilt, self- hatred, etc. We argue that modern leftists tend to have some such feelings (possibly more or less repressed) and that these feelings are decisive in determining the direction of modern leftism.

  1. When someone interprets as derogatory almost anything that is said about him (or about groups with whom he identifies) we conclude that he has inferiority feelings or low self-esteem. This tendency is pronounced among minority rights activists, whether or not they belong to the minority groups whose rights they defend. They are hypersensitive about the words used to designate minorities and about anything that is said concerning minorities. The terms “negro,” “oriental,” “handicapped” or “chick” for an African, an Asian, a disabled person or a woman originally had no derogatory connotation. “Broad” and “chick” were merely the feminine equivalents of “guy,” “dude” or “fellow.” The negative connotations have been attached to these terms by the activists themselves. Some animal rights activists have gone so far as to reject the word “pet” and insist on its replacement by “animal companion.” Leftish anthropologists go to great lengths to avoid saying anything about primitive peoples that could conceivably be interpreted as negative. They want to replace the world “primitive” by “nonliterate.” They seem almost paranoid about anything that might suggest that any primitive culture is inferior to our own. (We do not mean to imply that primitive cultures ARE inferior to ours. We merely point out the hypersensitivity of leftish anthropologists.)

  1. Those who are most sensitive about “politically incorrect” terminology are not the average black ghetto- dweller, Asian immigrant, abused woman or disabled person, but a minority of activists, many of whom do not even belong to any “oppressed” group but come from privileged strata of society. Political correctness has its stronghold among university professors, who have secure employment with comfortable salaries, and the majority of whom are heterosexual white males from middle- to upper-middle-class families.

  1. Many leftists have an intense identification with the problems of groups that have an image of being weak (women), defeated (American Indians), repellent (homosexuals) or otherwise inferior. The leftists themselves feel that these groups are inferior. They would never admit to themselves that they have such feelings, but it is precisely because they do see these groups as inferior that they identify with their problems. (We do not mean to suggest that women, Indians, etc. ARE inferior; we are only making a point about leftist psychology.)

  1. Feminists are desperately anxious to prove that women are as strong and as capable as men. Clearly they are nagged by a fear that women may NOT be as strong and as capable as men.

  1. Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong, good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality. The reasons that leftists give for hating the West, etc. clearly do not correspond with their real motives. They SAY they hate the West because it is warlike, imperialistic, sexist, ethnocentric and so forth, but where these same faults appear in socialist countries or in primitive cultures, the leftist finds excuses for them, or at best he GRUDGINGLY admits that they exist; whereas he ENTHUSIASTICALLY points out (and often greatly exaggerates) these faults where they appear in Western civilization. Thus it is clear that these faults are not the leftist’s real motive for hating America and the West. He hates America and the West because they are strong and successful.

  1. Words like “self-confidence,” “self-reliance,” “initiative,” “enterprise,” “optimism,” etc., play little role in the liberal and leftist vocabulary. The leftist is anti-individualistic, pro-collectivist. He wants society to solve everyone’s problems for them, satisfy everyone’s needs for them, take care of them. He is not the sort of person who has an inner sense of confidence in his ability to solve his own problems and satisfy his own needs. The leftist is antagonistic to the concept of competition because, deep inside, he feels like a loser.

  1. Art forms that appeal to modern leftish intellectuals tend to focus on sordidness, defeat and despair, or else they take an orgiastic tone, throwing off rational control as if there were no hope of accomplishing anything through rational calculation and all that was left was to immerse oneself in the sensations of the moment.

  1. Modern leftish philosophers tend to dismiss reason, science, objective reality and to insist that everything is culturally relative. It is true that one can ask serious questions about the foundations of scientific knowledge and about how, if at all, the concept of objective reality can be defined. But it is obvious that modern leftish philosophers are not simply cool-headed logicians systematically analyzing the foundations of knowledge. They are deeply involved emotionally in their attack on truth and reality. They attack these concepts because of their own psychological needs. For one thing, their attack is an outlet for hostility, and, to the extent that it is successful, it satisfies the drive for power. More importantly, the leftist hates science and rationality because they classify certain beliefs as true (i.e., successful, superior) and other beliefs as false (i.e., failed, inferior). The leftist’s feelings of inferiority run so deep that he cannot tolerate any classification of some things as successful or superior and other things as failed or inferior. This also underlies the rejection by many leftists of the concept of mental illness and of the utility of IQ tests. Leftists are antagonistic to genetic explanations of human abilities or behavior because such explanations tend to make some persons appear superior or inferior to others. Leftists prefer to give society the credit or blame for an individual’s ability or lack of it. Thus if a person is “inferior” it is not his fault, but society’s, because he has not been brought up properly.

  1. The leftist is not typically the kind of person whose feelings of inferiority make him a braggart, an egotist, a bully, a self-promoter, a ruthless competitor. This kind of person has not wholly lost faith in himself. He has a deficit in his sense of power and self-worth, but he can still conceive of himself as having the capacity to be strong, and his efforts to make himself strong produce his unpleasant behavior. [1] But the leftist is too far gone for that. His feelings of inferiority are so ingrained that he cannot conceive of himself as individually strong and valuable. Hence the collectivism of the leftist. He can feel strong only as a member of a large organization or a mass movement with which he identifies himself.

  1. Notice the masochistic tendency of leftist tactics. Leftists protest by lying down in front of vehicles, they intentionally provoke police or racists to abuse them, etc. These tactics may often be effective, but many leftists use them not as a means to an end but because they PREFER masochistic tactics. Self-hatred is a leftist trait.

  1. Leftists may claim that their activism is motivated by compassion or by moral principles, and moral principle does play a role for the leftist of the oversocialized type. But compassion and moral principle cannot be the main motives for leftist activism. Hostility is too prominent a component of leftist behavior; so is the drive for power. Moreover, much leftist behavior is not rationally calculated to be of benefit to the people whom the leftists claim to be trying to help. For example, if one believes that affirmative action is good for black people, does it make sense to demand affirmative action in hostile or dogmatic terms? Obviously it would be more productive to take a diplomatic and conciliatory approach that would make at least verbal and symbolic concessions to white people who think that affirmative action discriminates against them. But leftist activists do not take such an approach because it would not satisfy their emotional needs. Helping black people is not their real goal. Instead, race problems serve as an excuse for them to express their own hostility and frustrated need for power. In doing so they actually harm black people, because the activists’ hostile attitude toward the white majority tends to intensify race hatred.

  1. If our society had no social problems at all, the leftists would have to INVENT problems in order to provide themselves with an excuse for making a fuss.

  1. We emphasize that the foregoing does not pretend to be an accurate description of everyone who might be considered a leftist. It is only a rough indication of a general tendency of leftism.

OVERSOCIALIZATION

  1. Psychologists use the term “socialization” to designate the process by which children are trained to think and act as society demands. A person is said to be well socialized if he believes in and obeys the moral code of his society and fits in well as a functioning part of that society. It may seem senseless to say that many leftists are oversocialized, since the leftist is perceived as a rebel. Nevertheless, the position can be defended. Many leftists are not such rebels as they seem.

  1. The moral code of our society is so demanding that no one can think, feel and act in a completely moral way. For example, we are not supposed to hate anyone, yet almost everyone hates somebody at some time or other, whether he admits it to himself or not. Some people are so highly socialized that the attempt to think, feel and act morally imposes a severe burden on them. In order to avoid feelings of guilt, they continually have to deceive themselves about their own motives and find moral explanations for feelings and actions that in reality have a non-moral origin. We use the term “oversocialized” to describe such people. [2]

  1. Oversocialization can lead to low self-esteem, a sense of powerlessness, defeatism, guilt, etc. One of the most important means by which our society socializes children is by making them feel ashamed of behavior or speech that is contrary to society’s expectations. If this is overdone, or if a particular child is especially susceptible to such feelings, he ends by feeling ashamed of HIMSELF. Moreover the thought and the behavior of the oversocialized person are more restricted by society’s expectations than are those of the lightly socialized person. The majority of people engage in a significant amount of naughty behavior. They lie, they commit petty thefts, they break traffic laws, they goof off at work, they hate someone, they say spiteful things or they use some underhanded trick to get ahead of the other guy. The oversocialized person cannot do these things, or if he does do them he generates in himself a sense of shame and self-hatred. The oversocialized person cannot even experience, without guilt, thoughts or feelings that are contrary to the accepted morality; he cannot think “unclean” thoughts. And socialization is not just a matter of morality; we are socialized to conform to many norms of behavior that do not fall under the heading of morality. Thus the oversocialized person is kept on a psychological leash and spends his life running on rails that society has laid down for him. In many oversocialized people this results in a sense of constraint and powerlessness that can be a severe hardship. We suggest that oversocialization is among the more serious cruelties that human beings inflict on one another.

  1. We argue that a very important and influential segment of the modern left is oversocialized and that their oversocialization is of great importance in determining the direction of modern leftism. Leftists of the oversocialized type tend to be intellectuals or members of the upper-middle class. Notice that university intellectuals [3] constitute the most highly socialized segment of our society and also the most left-wing segment.

  1. The leftist of the oversocialized type tries to get off his psychological leash and assert his autonomy by rebelling. But usually he is not strong enough to rebel against the most basic values of society. Generally speaking, the goals of today’s leftists are NOT in conflict with the accepted morality. On the contrary, the left takes an accepted moral principle, adopts it as its own, and then accuses mainstream society of violating that principle. Examples: racial equality, equality of the sexes, helping poor people, peace as opposed to war, nonviolence generally, freedom of expression, kindness to animals. More fundamentally, the duty of the individual to serve society and the duty of society to take care of the individual. All these have been deeply rooted values of our society (or at least of its middle and upper classes [4] for a long time. These values are explicitly or implicitly expressed or presupposed in most of the material presented to us by the mainstream communications media and the educational system. Leftists, especially those of the oversocialized type, usually do not rebel against these principles but justify their hostility to society by claiming (with some degree of truth) that society is not living up to these principles.

  1. Here is an illustration of the way in which the oversocialized leftist shows his real attachment to the conventional attitudes of our society while pretending to be in rebellion against it. Many leftists push for affirmative action, for moving black people into high-prestige jobs, for improved education in black schools and more money for such schools; the way of life of the black “underclass” they regard as a social disgrace. They want to integrate the black man into the system, make him a business executive, a lawyer, a scientist just like upper-middle-class white people. The leftists will reply that the last thing they want is to make the black man into a copy of the white man; instead, they want to preserve African American culture. But in what does this preservation of African American culture consist? It can hardly consist in anything more than eating black-style food, listening to black-style music, wearing black-style clothing and going to a black- style church or mosque. In other words, it can express itself only in superficial matters. In all ESSENTIAL respects most leftists of the oversocialized type want to make the black man conform to white, middle-class ideals. They want to make him study technical subjects, become an executive or a scientist, spend his life climbing the status ladder to prove that black people are as good as white. They want to make black fathers “responsible,” they want black gangs to become nonviolent, etc. But these are exactly the values of the industrial-technological system. The system couldn’t care less what kind of music a man listens to, what kind of clothes he wears or what religion he believes in as long as he studies in school, holds a respectable job, climbs the status ladder, is a “responsible” parent, is nonviolent and so forth. In effect, however much he may deny it, the oversocialized leftist wants to integrate the black man into the system and make him adopt its values.

  1. We certainly do not claim that leftists, even of the oversocialized type, NEVER rebel against the fundamental values of our society. Clearly they sometimes do. Some oversocialized leftists have gone so far as to rebel against one of modern society’s most important principles by engaging in physical violence. By their own account, violence is for them a form of “liberation.” In other words, by committing violence they break through the psychological restraints that have been trained into them. Because they are oversocialized these restraints have been more confining for them than for others; hence their need to break free of them. But they usually justify their rebellion in terms of mainstream values. If they engage in violence they claim to be fighting against racism or the like.

  1. We realize that many objections could be raised to the foregoing thumbnail sketch of leftist psychology. The real situation is complex, and anything like a complete description of it would take several volumes even if the necessary data were available. We claim only to have indicated very roughly the two most important tendencies in the psychology of modern leftism.

  1. The problems of the leftist are indicative of the problems of our society as a whole. Low self-esteem, depressive tendencies and defeatism are not restricted to the left. Though they are especially noticeable in the left, they are widespread in our society. And today’s society tries to socialize us to a greater extent than any previous society. We are even told by experts how to eat, how to exercise, how to make love, how to raise our kids and so forth.

THE POWER PROCESS

  1. Human beings have a need (probably based in biology) for something that we will call the “power process.” This is closely related to the need for power (which is widely recognized) but is not quite the same thing. The power process has four elements. The three most clear-cut of these we call goal, effort and attainment of goal. (Everyone needs to have goals whose attainment requires effort, and needs to succeed in attaining at least some of his goals.) The fourth element is more difficult to define and may not be necessary for everyone. We call it autonomy and will discuss it later (paragraphs 42-44).

  1. Consider the hypothetical case of a man who can have anything he wants just by wishing for it. Such a man has power, but he will develop serious psychological problems. At first he will have a lot of fun, but by and by he will become acutely bored and demoralized. Eventually he may become clinically depressed. History shows that leisured aristocracies tend to become decadent. This is not true of fighting aristocracies that have to struggle to maintain their power. But leisured, secure aristocracies that have no need to exert themselves usually become bored, hedonistic and demoralized, even though they have power. This shows that power is not enough. One must have goals toward which to exercise one’s power.

  1. Everyone has goals; if nothing else, to obtain the physical necessities of life: food, water and whatever clothing and shelter are made necessary by the climate. But the leisured aristocrat obtains these things without effort. Hence his boredom and demoralization.

  1. Nonattainment of important goals results in death if the goals are physical necessities, and in frustration if nonattainment of the goals is compatible with survival. Consistent failure to attain goals throughout life results in defeatism, low self-esteem or depression.

Kurapika left the Mafia Community in a power gap. Turning the remnants of a criminal organisation into a security firm isn't easy. This ability fills the power gap with those who want to leave. Whether that's Kurapika's rulership or leaving a clean life behind, this ability is designed to empower those who join a new criminal organisation.
  1. A member can only join if sponsored by two initiated members of unbroken first-generation Yorknew descent, which they must also belong to.
  2. They must have committed a hit on the orders of a Made Man or committed a crime that would get them a 20 to life sentence.
  3. They must, whilst presided over by the Boss of the Family, announce their loyalty over all other causes and commitments. They must swear that the Family will take precedence over their own blood family.
  4. They must promise never to acknowledge the existence of the Family in any capacity except to Made Men and associates.
  5. Whilst pricking their fingers and rubbing a burning card of a saint in their hand, they must stand over a sword or gun on the table and say "May I burn in hell if I betray my friends."
Thereafter, they are able to enhance themselves and their weapons with Nen as long as they remain in the Family. Goodfellas works best on those who aren't aware they're about to be attacked. That's especially the case if they stand behind them whilst doing so.

2023.06.08 23:09 PracticeThat8826 The Technical Process of Oil and Gas Exploration: Fueling the Global Economy and Trio Petroleum's (NYSE: TPET) Impact on California's Energy Market

I wanted to share some information about the process of exploring for oil and gas and the positive impact it has on the global economy. It's a highly technical field that involves a range of disciplines, including geology, geophysics, drilling engineering, and reservoir engineering.
Exploring for oil and gas typically involves geological and geophysical surveys to identify potential areas where oil and gas deposits may exist. Once an area has been identified, drilling rigs are brought in to drill test wells. These wells are drilled deep into the earth's surface to determine the composition of the rock formations and whether there are any hydrocarbon deposits present. If the test wells show signs of oil or gas, additional drilling may be carried out to confirm the presence of a commercial deposit.
Successful exploration can lead to the discovery of vast reserves of hydrocarbons that can be extracted and sold for substantial profits. The oil and gas industry is a crucial component of the global economy, providing the primary source of energy for transportation, heating, and electricity generation. It is also a major employer, with millions of people around the world working in various aspects of the industry, from exploration and production to refining and distribution.
While the transition to cleaner, renewable sources of energy is important, oil and gas will continue to play a significant role in meeting global energy demand for the foreseeable future. The exploration for new reserves will remain an important aspect of the industry, ensuring a stable and reliable supply of energy for the world's growing population.
One company working to positively impact California’s energy market is Trio Petroleum (NYSE: TPET). Trio’s drilling operations at their main flagship, South Salinas, commenced last month and they already confirmed a major oil and gas accumulation at the HV-1 well in the Presidents Field of the project. Trio plans to put the well to production after completion operations are finalized. In the meantime, Trio is working to have a better understanding of production rates by evaluating the new data they are receiving from the well.

2023.06.08 23:03 badabingman Some experiments I do while Lucid Dreaming - long time lucid dreamer here just found this subreddit!

Lucid Dreaming I've been having lucid dreams since I was a kid, these days I'm getting them relatively often. Since I was always interested in how the brain works I decided that every time I started lucid dreaming I would start to run experiments on how they work, these are some of the things I've found.
First. Everything you dream about gets "painted" onto that reality the moment you look at it or turn your gaze in a specific direction, or it gets processed "live" so to speak. For instance, I was dreaming and found myself in a house, I suddenly realized I was dreaming so I decided to look around, the first thing I noticed is that the furniture, objects etc that existed in one direction would disappear if I looked in another direction and then looked back. There would be something completely different there. Every time you turn your gaze in a different direction you the things that were there will change a bit, they may retain some qualities of the setting itself like lighting, or general "vibe" so to speak but every single time I tested this its true. Second. There is another part of your brain that is "conducting" a story that the "viewer" is experiencing. I think this is pretty obvious if you ask yourself how can I be “jump scared” in a dream, right? Who decides to tell the monster to jump in that specific instant, or the car to drive off the cliff, and how can you be “surprised” at this if it’s you that decided this would happen. I noticed this while lucid dreaming, I came across a bunch of little goats and started to pet them all of a sudden they turned crazy, they started attacking me and this “beast”, “monster” just a horrible humanlike creature appeared and said in English (im bilingual english/spanish) w the deepest voice “what are you doing hereeee”, scared the shit out of me and I woke up. What part of the brain decided to make those little goats attack me and that thing come out of nowhere? Third. Close-ups are craaaaaaazyyy. If I were you having a lucid dream I would immediately get close and look literally an inch away and try to analyze the surface of whatever you can, a table, chair, floor, whatever you have in front of you. If you every did acid, or any hallucinogen you will see that the textures are EXAAAaACTLY the same as the ones you see when hallucinating. I'm not well versed on the different areas that get "activated" when you do drugs but I assume from this that the substances blur the line between sleep and awake, allowing those visions to come through. The crazier thing about it is it looks pretty much exactly like how AI generated content looks. And not even very good AI at that.... makes you think about the process in which the brain generates visuals, the raw computational capacity and whether it's actually something we've already achieved, at least in the "sleeping" state. Fourth. Common threads, settings, etc.. among dreams. I find that when I start to fall asleep, many times I have a tiny space where I have lucidity and I start recalling A LOT of common places, vibes, people that appear in my dreams. I feel like there is some bank of settings for these stories to be told, possibly agreggating new ones and some evolving. A great example for me is I used to dream that I was in high school over and over again, I think part of me thinks that I had some bit of this dream probably every day. I feel like my brain to be able to move past this story had me expelled from high school hahahahah so every time I know dream about having to go to class I remember oh wait I was expelled, and so my brain goes like ok lets do something else. This has more to do with normal dreaming but it's when I'm lucid that I can think about all the commonality between all the dreams.Not sure this is interesting to anyone or just interesting to me since I’m experiencing it, but thought I’d share in case anyone has noticed any of this or can think of more things to test.
Fifth, my first lucid dream I wanted to wake up and I couldn't. I just jumped off of a balcony, if you want to wake up you can do that. In that dream a giant butterfly caught me and I woke up hahaha in others I've just "died" and woken up.

2023.06.08 22:43 Buck_Joffrey Wealth Formula Episode 372: What You Need to Know About AIv

Catch the full episode: https://www.wealthformula.com/podcast/372-what-you-need-to-know-about-ai/
Buck: Welcome back to the show, everyone, today. My guest on Wealth Formula podcast is Shashank Shekhar, founder of Insta Mortgage. After starting his business in possibly the worst year for financial markets. 28, Shashank has led the company to be one of the fastest growing mortgage companies in America, helping thousands of families secure better financing for their homes in 2017 and 2021. InstaMortgage, which is formerly known as Arcus Lending, was named to the INC 500 list of the fastest growing private companies in America. Shashank, welcome to the program.
Shashank: Thank you for having me, Brooke.
Buck: So, you know, first of all, tell us a little bit about your company in that. And, you know, like I think one of the things I really want to get into is the technology aspect. But tell us a little bit about your company and what makes it different.
Shashank: Yeah, so it's two mortgages really founded on the tech first approach to mortgage lending, as we know is one of the industries that has kind of remained archaic in terms of just providing the consumer experience, how the process works, and some of it is regulatory meeting. As a lender, we can make any make any changes. The government asks us to originate alone and in a certain way there is not much you can do about it.
I'll give you an example. We created the record for fastest from an application to be ready for close in 6 hours, six and a half hours in the industry. But see, APB requires us not to close a loan for seven days after we take the application. So that's. That's what I'm saying. And some of the things that we are doing, we are kind of hampered by what the what the regulation brings. But other than that really is the mortgage approach is towards speed, towards making it more streamlined, user friendly. And we do that by a lot of technology implementation that we have done. Some of it grown in-house at instrument and some of it that we've used our partners to build.
Buck: One of the things that I understand that you guys are using a lot of is some of this artificial intelligence. Let's let's start with something basic, I think. But this is not necessarily a technology group, but, you know, maybe you want to start with like sort of the concept of what Shashi Petit is and, you know, kind of take take it from there and explain how some of this might apply to your business.
Shashank: Yeah. And anyway, I'll probably back up even a little bit more and just just explain artificial intelligence. I know the audience is pretty smart, but one of the things that we see all the time and it's this not just in the mortgage industry is is that a lot of it being is what we are hearing, especially people ask two or three years is that this is a driven we it everything seems to have the word A.I. in it. It's like crypto or blockchain from a couple of years.
Buck: Yeah, I guess 100% right. And yeah.
Shashank: One thing I wanted to explain to the audience is that not everything is the AI, and just because they say it's to write artificial intelligence essentially is is the is when machine is able to do some things that humans do, they're able to recognize speech, they're able to make decisions like humans do when something is programed to do something that's just advanced programing, like if I had a chat bot and I programed it with every possible question that would ask when Buck would come to my website, that's not artificial intelligence. Me look smart. Oh, I'm asking you, do I need a mortgage? And it knows the answer. I want to can be connected to a loan officer and it knows the answer, but it hasn't been programed to do that, that we preempt the questions that you might possibly ask, given our experience that when users come to the Web site and ask these questions, that's not artificial, since artificial intelligence is usually a huge amount of computing capacity, that's required for a machine to learn by itself, even something as basic as if a machine were to recognize if this picture is of a cat or not, that will require it to be fed hundreds and thousands of photographs of cat for it to figure out a pattern saying this is how cats look. And on the other side also fed hundreds and thousands of pictures that may look like a cat, but it's not a cat. Might be a baby lion or a baby tiger that has paws and whiskers and small, but they are not cats. And and then it's able to figure it out through machine learning, through through hundreds of attrition. That's not a cat. So that's artificial intelligence. And I just wanted to throw that out as because search terms, we are like, oh, this is artificial intelligence or it's AI driven, but it's not always the idea.
Buck: Yeah. So really, I think like when I think of it, I maybe, you know, just for clarity, maybe you can correct me if I'm wrong, but it's really like a learning system, right? It's, it's, it's not just preprogramed information. It is literally sort of learning on the go. So it's, you know, it's going to take information that comes in. It's going to take questions that come in. It's going to learn from those things and potentially create more efficiencies because it can start, quote unquote, thinking rather than simply spitting out preprogramed information.
Shashank: Absolutely. And that's why and that's where I think GPT comes into us, as you asked us, that it's a job to please is a truly AI model. And what's revolutionary about it is really so far practically all artificial intelligence that I've seen before. Chad GPD has been about solving a specialized problem. So it could be about how to become a better writer. So it could do copywriting for you or to become better marketer, or you're solving one problem or the other. And that's why artificial intelligence was mostly being deployed, charging beauty for the first time at a very mass level really brings a generating by origin by meaning it didn't plan sort of it at least aims to solve for hundreds and thousands of problems and not just one last I checked. So in the real estate industry, AI and chatbots like ChatGPT are having a significant impact. One area where they are being utilized is in customer service and support. Chatbots can handle customer inquiries, provide information about properties, and even assist with the mortgage application process. They can answer commonly asked questions and provide a more streamlined and efficient experience for potential homebuyers.
Additionally, AI is being used in data analysis and predictive modeling. By analyzing vast amounts of real estate data, AI algorithms can identify trends, patterns, and insights that can help real estate professionals make more informed decisions. This can include predicting property values, identifying investment opportunities, and assessing market conditions.
Furthermore, AI-powered virtual assistants are becoming more prevalent in the real estate industry. These assistants can help automate tasks such as scheduling property tours, sending notifications to clients, and even providing personalized property recommendations based on the client's preferences and requirements.
Overall, AI and chatbots are revolutionizing the real estate industry by improving customer experiences, enabling data-driven decision-making, and automating various aspects of the real estate process.
Buck: It's fascinating. So in your business, you mentioned that AI is streamlining the underwriting process for instant mortgages. Can you elaborate on what aspects of the underwriting process AI is helping with to reduce the timeline from 45 days to just a week?
Shashank: Absolutely. One of the things AI can do is bring efficiencies to the table. For instance, loan guidelines in the mortgage industry are extensive, similar to the complexity of the IRS tax code. It can take a significant amount of time for underwriters to sift through hundreds of pages of program guidelines to find specific information related to unique borrower situations. AI can analyze the guidelines and identify the relevant sections more efficiently. It can also pinpoint bottlenecks in the process, allowing for improvements to be made.
Furthermore, AI can assist in automating tasks and providing quick access to information. For example, I recently experimented with a Facebook language model that can be installed on a local device. By uploading relevant documents, such as research papers or industry-specific information, you can create your own repository of knowledge. You can then ask questions and receive answers based on that information, streamlining the information retrieval process.
Buck: That's interesting. It reminds me of the open-source nature of blockchain technology. Do you see any similarities between AI and blockchain in terms of their potential and openness?
Shashank: There are some similarities, but they also have distinct differences. Blockchain technology has generated a lot of excitement in the past, and it's still relevant. However, it has been closely associated with cryptocurrencies, which have faced some challenges. This has caused some people to shy away from blockchain.
But blockchain technology has applications beyond cryptocurrencies. For example, in the real estate industry, it could revolutionize the process of title transfer. Instead of going through county courts, titles could be securely held on a blockchain, and smart contracts could automate the transfer process upon receipt of payment.
While blockchain may have lost some favor recently, it doesn't mean it has lost relevance. It's just not receiving as much attention and investment at the moment. However, both AI and blockchain have the potential to transform industries and improve efficiency in different ways.
Buck: I guess the comparison I was trying to make is less about comparing them as the same type of thing, but more about looking at it as an open-source opportunity for people to develop.
Shashank: The interest in it is huge. By the way, if anyone wants to test it, go to GPGforall.io. Even if you have zero programming skills, you can hire someone on Upwork. I'm not a programmer, and I got someone to do it for me. It took him less than 30 minutes. The instructions are step by step, so even if you can't do it, someone else can.
Buck: Let me write it down: GPT4all.
Shashank: Yes, "for" is the number 4.
Buck: Okay, dot IO. Fascinating. Let's see what I can come up with.
Shashank: Very cool. So yeah, let's talk a little bit about your business too. You guys are obviously doing really well. To be honest, I'd never heard of Instant Mortgage. Is this available in all states?
Shashank: We are in 28 states, so not all states yet. But those 28 states account for about 70-75% of all mortgages in the US.
Buck: Mostly in California, right?
Shashank: Yes, I'm here in Silicon Valley.
Buck: Right, got it. So, how does the process with Instant Mortgage compare to other mortgage companies?
Shashank: If you go to InstantMortgage.com, you will see that our entire smart application process is way more advanced than most of the industry. We start underwriting the moment you start entering the application. By the time you finish the application in your own borrower's portal, you will already start seeing the documents we need and the signatures required. The loan is almost half underwritten by that point, which is probably the fastest you will see in the industry. We also have a user-friendly borrower's portal that provides transparency on your loan's progress. We have 100% transparency on where your loan is and what's required from your end. You see all the loan dynamics at that point in time. The entire user experience is very advanced. We still have expert loan officers and processors in the back end, so it's not just a technology solution. You get expert advice as well.
Buck: Is it easy to get pre-approvals with Instant Mortgage?
Shashank: We have something called a prequel where you don't have to go through the entire process. In 90 seconds, you give us some basic information, and we run a soft check on your credit. It does not impact your credit score. Then we run the entire guideline underwriting engine and give you a prequel letter, which is the fastest in the industry. If you just want to understand how much you qualify for and you're not ready to make an offer, you don't even have to reach out to us.
Buck: So primarily residential, including jumbos and all that. Any limitations on the residential side?
Shashank: We also do commercial loans, but the process and user experience would be very different and take longer.
Buck: That is fascinating. One last question for you. Who is Rachel and how did you create her?
Shashank: Rachel is the mortgage industry's voice-first digital human. We started with websites, then moved to chatbots, and now digital humans are the next evolution. Rachel is more advanced than Siri and Alexa because she has a face. You can interact with her through speech, video, or text. You can ask for jokes or talk about non-mortgage-related topics. We just launched her with Jeopardy, so she can answer Jeopardy questions too. It's a pretty advanced concept in terms of user experience.
Buck: So the business is Instant Mortgage at instantmortgage.com. This is really fascinating stuff, Shashank. I appreciate you being on the Well Formula podcast today.
Shashank: Sure, glad to be here.
Buck: We'll be right back.

2023.06.08 22:35 PracticeThat8826 The Technical Process of Oil and Gas Exploration: Fueling the Global Economy and Trio Petroleum's (NYSE: TPET) Impact on California's Energy Market

I wanted to share some information about the process of exploring for oil and gas and the positive impact it has on the global economy. It's a highly technical field that involves a range of disciplines, including geology, geophysics, drilling engineering, and reservoir engineering.
Exploring for oil and gas typically involves geological and geophysical surveys to identify potential areas where oil and gas deposits may exist. Once an area has been identified, drilling rigs are brought in to drill test wells. These wells are drilled deep into the earth's surface to determine the composition of the rock formations and whether there are any hydrocarbon deposits present. If the test wells show signs of oil or gas, additional drilling may be carried out to confirm the presence of a commercial deposit.
Successful exploration can lead to the discovery of vast reserves of hydrocarbons that can be extracted and sold for substantial profits. The oil and gas industry is a crucial component of the global economy, providing the primary source of energy for transportation, heating, and electricity generation. It is also a major employer, with millions of people around the world working in various aspects of the industry, from exploration and production to refining and distribution.
While the transition to cleaner, renewable sources of energy is important, oil and gas will continue to play a significant role in meeting global energy demand for the foreseeable future. The exploration for new reserves will remain an important aspect of the industry, ensuring a stable and reliable supply of energy for the world's growing population.
One company working to positively impact California’s energy market is Trio Petroleum (NYSE: TPET). Trio’s drilling operations at their main flagship, South Salinas, commenced last month and they already confirmed a major oil and gas accumulation at the HV-1 well in the Presidents Field of the project. Trio plans to put the well to production after completion operations are finalized. In the meantime, Trio is working to have a better understanding of production rates by evaluating the new data they are receiving from the well.

2023.06.08 21:55 207207 Brought my car (2020 Honda HR-V) to the dealer for normal service - no idea what maintenance I actually need and what they're just trying to sell to me

2020 Honda HR-V, 28k miles. Brought the car in for "B12" service and they quoted me $1900. Seems pretty high. I was blunt with the advisor and said I didn't know what was necessary and what wasn't, and she was nice of enough to tell me what I could delay. However, I'm still paying $1200 for a bunch of stuff, and I'm trying to understand what is necessary and what's not. My wife and I take good care of the car, we're fine paying for preventative maintenance now if it means the car will last longer. Not a cashflow issue, I just don't want to get ripped off.
After our discussion, they postponed the following:
- Battery service (clean cable ends and terminals, install anti-corrosion pads)
- Replace engine air filter
- Replace dust/pollen filter, incl. frigi-fresh santizer
- Mass Air Flow sensior cleaning
- A/C frigi-clean ventilation and evaporator core cleaning service
They recommended the following big ticket items along with inspections, tire rotation, the B12 service items, and engine oil and filter replacement:
- Engine oil conditioner
- Universal coolant conditioner
- Brake fluid exchange
- Premium fuel system cleaner (44k platinum(
- Fuel and air induction system cleaning service
- Engine crankcase cleaning service
- Ethanol fuel system treatment
Did I get ripped off? Any advice on how to approach these situations going forward? Again, I'm fine paying for stuff that is important, I just don't want to be sold snake oil. Thanks all!

2023.06.08 21:53 Twosliceofbread Now that there is OC reworks, i list OC's, that would need some

Sludge blast (sludge pump - Maybe less ammo penalty
AG mixture (sludge pump) - it really wont add anything special. Every other OC have purpose. Maybe -1 charged shot instead
Chain hit (subata and bulldog) - Make it 100%
Oversized Magazine (subata) - Maybe rework this to *Oversized bullets* and give it +8 damage, -50% magazine and -30% reload speed
Overcharger (EPC) - Double everything. TCF already deals much more damage than this useless OC and it's not even OC
Liquid Cooling System (colette) - Maybe ability to return 25-50% (random) ammo after heating
Super Focus Lens (colette) - 1,5x damage is nothing really. More range for it or +10 damage bonus
Blistering Necrosis - Maybe +20% change, but -150 ammo. This OC is not unstable now.
Gamma Contamination - Maybe +35% change and -100 ammo.
Super-Slim Rounds (stubby) - 0,6x base spread buff
Well Oiled Machine (stubby) - +6 rpm bonus
Turret Arc (stubby) - Stronger dot
Turret EM Discharge - Bigger area hit. -2 damage now hit really hard for already weak base damage
Eraser (LOK) - Complete rework. +1 damage bonus per lock and -6 maximum lock
Armor Break Module (LOK) - Hitting armor ricochets bullets too to nearby enemies
Neuro-Lasso (LOK) - Full lock gives +4 damage bonus
Pack Rat (PGL) +1 more ammo won't break it
Feedback Loop (Diffractor) - One second tick to 0,5 second
Automated Beam Controller (diffractor) - Reduce charge capacity. It feels now like useless unstable
Exhaust Vectoring (minigun) - +1 more damage
Manual Guidance Cutoff (hurricane) - Manual rockets have 1,0m bigger radius
Electro Minelets (brt) - Let it have same stats as GK2 electric reload
Compact Ammo (GK2) - +1 rpm buff
Gas Rerouting (gk2) +1 rpm buff
Homebrew Powder (GK2) 1,4 dmg to 1,6
Overclocked Firing Mechanism (GK2) +2 rpm buff
Custom Casings (zhukov) +1 blow through buff

These are just ideas for less used OC's. I loved changes, they did for double barrel and PBM. They feel now much more, how they should've feel in the first place. And carpet bomber is really good rival for frag missile

2023.06.08 21:51 Flimming [Totk] How to improve cooking and healing in future games

The cooking system in Botw/Totk is interesting because it can be so much fun while also having obvious drawbacks. Personally, I think the cooking system is a valuable enough addition to the series that it deserves to stay and should not be done away with entirely. I know some disagree and want to return to traditional bottles and potions for future iterations, but I think this would be a mistake. Experimenting with different ingredients and finding recipes that work can be extremely rewarding. I can't count how many times I've been pleasantly surprised and said to myself "I can't believe they thought of that" when trying a new combination. Learning recipes from NPCs and cookbooks is also fun and engaging, and making a variety of dishes just feels so satisfying. These games make cooking more fun than any RPG I've played, and rather than scrapping the system I think it should be expanded, improved upon and considered part of a Zelda game's identity in the future.
That being said, I think there are several major and obvious issues with cooking. First and probably biggest for me is that the rewards for cooking interesting meals are intrinsic only. The meals that require involved recipes are never as useful as a big stack of meat or a single hearty ingredient. Hearty meals that overfill your health for one ingredient are frankly OP and while Totk addressed this by making the resources harder to come by, it just makes players not want to use the best meals in case they need them later. Meals that require multiple unique ingredients should be the biggest healers, and I don't think anything needs to overfill hearts. It's not necessary in a game with the no one-hit kill mechanic already in place. You should also be able to auto-cook these meals once you have discovered them. It's fine if the animation still plays, but checking back at the recipe book when you already learned the meal is annoying. To encourage players to make a variety of meals, I think there should be a limit on the number of any given type of meal you can hold at once, maybe 3. The total carrying capacity for meals could still be very generous, but this way, you will be rewarded for finding more and more recipes, not making the same boring things over and over.
If this system were implemented in Totk right now it would be a disaster because of ingredient scarcity, so this is the second thing that should be changed. I rarely get to try making fun things like stews, risottos, cakes, and pies because things like wheat, sugar, butter, oil etc are so limited. Totk did improve on Botw in this regard but I still don't want to waste what limited resources I have on an experiment that might not make anything new, let alone a dubious food. Increasing the quantities of all ingredients in shops and making them fairly cheap should be a simple fix.
The next major issue I see is how the meals you make are used it combat. You never actually have to die in Totk. It's too easy to pause and heal at any time. You just choose to die instead of using all your best meals up, and try again hoping to take less hits. This is a super unsatisfying way to do a healing system. Fixing the scarcity of ingredients should help alleviate the regrets for using too many meals in a single fight. To keep some level of difficulty existent in the game, healing can't be done both through a pause menu AND be instantaneous. One or both of these things needs to change. If you could pull open a wheel of your meals during combat that takes time to select, consume, and the healing is done over time, the game will be plenty difficult while still allowing the player to carry a large number of meals at a time.
Lastly, I think temperature effects and buffs should be kept to potions only, and healing to food. These should have separate carrying capacities. Currently, it feels like a waste of healing to use a meal for an effect when my hearts are full, and a waste of an inventory slot to keep too many buffing items on hand. This leads to me not using very many buffs at all, which is obviously not ideal. Keeping meals and potions separate should help this.
What do you guys think? Should cooking remain a core feature in Zelda games, and how could it be changed to be better than it currently is now?

2023.06.08 21:28 Sensitive_Isopod_150 First Car, 19k budget, Fairly efficient, preferably beige interior.

Good day, I am adding to the sea of endless "teenager with unrealistic expectations of the inner-workings of automobile purchasing" posts.
I am going into my last year of high-school, and am intending of moving out of state for college (Mn/Ny/Me/Vt). I am privileged enough to have a 19k budget, but fuel efficiency is recommended. I reckon I'll bash the shit out of my car, so an older car is preferred. I am open to suggestions outside of the list below, though the dream is cloth seats and a CD player. I will be daily driving (11 mile commute to school), and will probably have to do some long hauls for college. I will have to transport instruments (keyboard and bass) but I don't think I will need an SUV to do that. I will not buy a German car due to familial reasons, and don't trust the perceived reliability of American Cars. The cut off dates are pretty lenient, as I don't know if the lack of a CD player is really a good enough excuse to shy away from a vehicle.
On my list would be
Maybe too big
Sorry to have such a long post.
Is it fair to discount Nissans/Infinitis for their transmissions liking to brick? Is the reliability good enough to overcome their social stigma?
Should more [blank] be on this list? Are any of my statements just plain wrong?
How do the plastics on the older models hold up over the years?
Any glaring issues in certain years that I should be aware about. I have done a fair bit of research, but don't know if what they are telling me is true, thus I am asking those who may own them.
Besides general worship, is the gas mileage of the pre-2003 V6 Camry's worth it? I am sorry if that is an ambiguous statement, I just don't know how affordable long term it is.
Are there any prominent electrical concerns in the mid-2000s Toyota hybrids (prius and camry)?
How much do they salt the roads in Minnesota? Up-state New York? Maine?
Are the Takata airbags to be trusted? Should I discount the earlier Toyotas because of it?
Should I entertain more Korean cars? All I know is that they are rather hard to get insured due to the recent thefts.
In car shopping, how acceptable is haggling (respectfully) over dents/rust?
Thank you to any of those who read this or care, please forgive me for anything that I should have known, either from common sense or observation of this sub. I understand this whole thing is trite, and I have probably beaten a dead horse.

2023.06.08 21:19 PracticeThat8826 The Technical Process of Oil and Gas Exploration: Fueling the Global Economy and Trio Petroleum's (NYSE: TPET) Impact on California's Energy Market

I wanted to share some information about the process of exploring for oil and gas and the positive impact it has on the global economy. It's a highly technical field that involves a range of disciplines, including geology, geophysics, drilling engineering, and reservoir engineering.
Exploring for oil and gas typically involves geological and geophysical surveys to identify potential areas where oil and gas deposits may exist. Once an area has been identified, drilling rigs are brought in to drill test wells. These wells are drilled deep into the earth's surface to determine the composition of the rock formations and whether there are any hydrocarbon deposits present. If the test wells show signs of oil or gas, additional drilling may be carried out to confirm the presence of a commercial deposit.
Successful exploration can lead to the discovery of vast reserves of hydrocarbons that can be extracted and sold for substantial profits. The oil and gas industry is a crucial component of the global economy, providing the primary source of energy for transportation, heating, and electricity generation. It is also a major employer, with millions of people around the world working in various aspects of the industry, from exploration and production to refining and distribution.
While the transition to cleaner, renewable sources of energy is important, oil and gas will continue to play a significant role in meeting global energy demand for the foreseeable future. The exploration for new reserves will remain an important aspect of the industry, ensuring a stable and reliable supply of energy for the world's growing population.
One company working to positively impact California’s energy market is Trio Petroleum (NYSE: TPET). Trio’s drilling operations at their main flagship, South Salinas, commenced last month and they already confirmed a major oil and gas accumulation at the HV-1 well in the Presidents Field of the project. Trio plans to put the well to production after completion operations are finalized. In the meantime, Trio is working to have a better understanding of production rates by evaluating the new data they are receiving from the well.
