Accessible I Ching

for more brain standardization
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

For inclusive communication, make the I Ching accessible to all using assistive technologies, to standardize brain configuration, as a way to imprint the archetypicality of time on new brains.

       Well, at least it's not in other:general

       This makes almost as much sense as the i ching does.
RayfordSteele, Jul 28 2017

       Maybe if you take all the words in the idea and throw them in the air, when they come down they'll make some sort of sense ... ?   

       But probably not ...

       This like word salad but without the dressing.

       Or the letters. Maybe an anagram...
RayfordSteele, Jul 28 2017

       You can rearrange the words to get something that makes more sense, even though it still has no meaning:   

       To standardize a way of inclusive communication, I (as the brain) imprint on all technologies. Using assistive configuration for archetypicality, accessible to new brains, make the time. Ching!

       You are [beanangel], and we claim our five dollars ...

       [JesusHChrist] The I Ching may need to be compressed/translated to a brain seeding protoype which in it's own way is a crap shoot into complexity.

       Ooh! I just read about the i ching. Taoist randomness with directionality to confucianal proper advice. It is thought to be syncretic. I reject Confucious!
beanangel, Jul 29 2017

       I offer the rejected Confucius a comforting hug, after appropriate, tactful preliminaries. Then I pour the tea.

       I'm confused is the 5$ changing hands or not? Do I really have recall my childhood programming which makes me look to my ancestors for the answer?

       [+] This is truly madness

       // I'm confused is the 5$ changing hands or not? //   

       We're still hopeful.   

       // Do I ... look to my ancestors for the answer? //   

       That's only possible if you know who your father was, which we doubt ...

       Heh, story time:
This girl once talked me into trying this I-ching.
I threw three coins however many times she said and looked up the blurb in her book.
It said something close to; "Prepare to weather the storm" , or some crap like that. So I did it again, and a gain, and again.
Every time was a different place in that stinking book but they all said the same stuff. Basically you're damned if you do and damned if you don't so gird yer loins boy.

       I was like; I don't think I like this very much.
Over the course of the next few weeks my girlfriend called it quits, I had to train the bosses son to take my job, had my van stripped of everything including my carpet tools, got evicted from a trailer I was renting for cash, and it was one of the two times in my life I've gone four days without eating.

       Now I'm not saying there's a connection because that's not rational.
... but I never tossed those coins again either.

       Could there be some confusion between cause and effect there ?   

       Could, in a very Schrödinger way, enquiring about the outcome actually affect the outcome ?   

       Is it better not to ask, or not to know ?   

       Is the cat dead yet ?
8th of 7, Aug 01 2017

       <shrugs> It's better to just take it as it comes.
Keeps the reflexes sharp.

       That's a rough ride, but a GREAT story, [fries] .... you have the makings of a country music hit there. Is there a horse or a dog you can reference as well?   

       [8th], in my trade I'm often called on to data mine for history and track performance of a given phenom.   

       Often this seems to have the effect of making the phenom improve, without any other effort than looking at raw data and squeezing it for information periodically.
normzone, Aug 01 2017

       I missed my calling [norm]. Stage fright, you know how it is.
Heard a good one the other day though;

       What do country music and rap music have in common?
Meh... music is music, just as long as someone is throwing a good ho down.
