“Does Bionic Reading actually work? We timed over 2,000 readers and the results might surprise you”

“In fact, participants read 2.6 words per minute slower on average with Bionic Reading than without”

Not surprised.

I have always been really confused by Category Theory and every time I've tried to read up on its basics I've bounced off it pretty hard.

Last week I found this video called "A Sensible Introduction to Category Theory" and this is the first time categories have ever made any sense to me:

I wrote a Cohost post about my Interpretation of the video:

Still not sure I LIKE any of this but I feel like I at least can interpret the Wikipedia pages now!

Que faire quand on a agressé quelqu’un·e ?

(J'ai lu en diagonale parce que pas l'énergie là mais ça a l'air bien, et ça peut a priori s'appliquer à tout type d'agression, quelques passages :)

"Qu’arrive-t-il quand les personnes sont à la fois des survivant·es et des agresseur·es ? Et si nous ne travaillons pas avec les agresseur·es, qui le fera ?"

"Pour ma part, j’argumenterais à la faveur d’une distinction entre la culpabilité et la honte. La culpabilité, c’est se sentir mal à propos d’une chose qu’on a faite ; la honte, c’est se sentir mal à propos de la personne que nous sommes."

"Vous devez apprendre à vous pardonner. [...] Cela s’applique aux communautés, aussi bien qu’aux individus. Il est tellement plus facile, tellement plus simple, de créer des lignes claires qui séparent les gentil·les des méchant·es, d’ériger des murs qui tiennent les « agresseur·es » au-dehors plutôt que des miroirs pour examiner l’agresseur·e au-dedans."

Racist friends: Arguments and counterarguments 

"But they're a good person!" Fine, then they should be willing to do the right thing and listen to moral arguments.

"They've been good to me!" So are you really okay with their treating others like crap for who they are?

"They're my friend!" How good of a friend are they, really, if they don't listen to you and don't share your core values?

"...I don't want to be alone." You won't be. Take it from someone who has lost multiple friends over racism. You'll find better friendships where you don't have to constantly edit yourself down to be palatable to your friends. You'll make new and better friends that you can be your own shape around. If you find yourself biting your tongue half your time around them, they're not your friends. You deserve better.

Please help me get stable while I am in a bit of a financial bind

"As I work to complete my program, I realize I cannot work any kind of “regular” job. Since I am trained as and enjoy working as a photographer, I intend to freelance to sustain myself as I study. These last couple of months have been particularly difficult as I’ve tried to maintain."
