11:00:19SLackerMo Enzyme rings the starting bell
11:00:37Lucifersomeone was supposed to PM someone when we start?
11:00:50SLackerMo Enzyme: I did.
11:00:54SLackerMo Enzyme: kafaka.
11:00:57SLackerEarl Enzyme: however, clickable links are only available in your regular chat pgm I believe
11:01:11SLackerLucifer Darrow: OK, thanks to all for coming to the first CoV cross-world chat :)
11:01:24SLackerMo Enzyme applauds wildly
11:01:26SLackerLucifer Darrow: Mo was correct, this is a bit of an experiment
11:01:50SLackerLucifer Darrow: to see how well SLacker works to bridge the gap between SL and IRC
11:01:54WW* WW whistles and cheers
11:02:15SLackerLucifer Darrow: The topic today is "Rational strategies for irrationality"
11:02:34SLackerEarl Enzyme slaps Mo siwwy
11:02:36SLackerLucifer Darrow: by that I mean how to deal with irrationality in a rational manner
11:02:42kafakalike in conventional propagated religions?
11:02:58kafakaImean, the abrahamic ones
11:03:03SLackerLucifer Darrow: kafaka, yes or wherever irrationality arises
11:03:14kafakaand their conservative and anti-innovation memes
11:03:16SLackerLucifer Darrow: it is rather pervasive in my experience
11:03:39kafakawhat does "pervasive" mean?
11:03:43SLackerLucifer Darrow: I did leave one aspect of the topic ambiguous on purpose
11:03:47SLackerMo Enzyme: first off, I think a certain amount of irrationality is inevitable. The human mind is attracted to supernaturalisms as a side effect of our ability to think abstractly
11:04:04SLackerLucifer Darrow: pervasive means it is everywhere you look
11:04:05kafakaMo has a goodpoint there
11:04:09White_FoxHaving the quality or tendency to pervade or permeate
