The Challenge: Write a short story (500 characters), using the number of characters per line, as heard in the musical piece "The Typewriter" by Leroy Anderson. You can add any number of spaces as needed, as they don't have the audible "tap" sound, we can get away with it. Ignore the bell sound. Characters per line, spaces means a pause on that line, if you choose to use that for anything. if not, just add the numbers on the individual lines: 13 11 13 11 25 33 9 9 13 5 12 9 3 3 3 15 10 13 10 24 33 4 3 2 4 3 2 4 4 2 6 3 9 3 2 4 3 2 4 4 2 6 3 5 (No carriage return here) 13 11 13 10 24 9 9 3 3 3 3 3 35 ----- Sum: 500.

Requesting the name and the author of the book. The plot is as follows: There are a magical and a technological worlds and after a war in a magic world wizards swap the son of the evil guy with some boy from the technoworld to prevent that son from dealing revenge. They both grow up and that boy who now lives in magic world starts building his evil technoempire in the magic world. He kills magical creatures and mages, has his own drone army etc. Mages decide to bring the son of the evil mage back into their world to aid them in fighting technoempire. That grown-up son of the great but evil mage is actually a kind guy, good with guitar and is quickly able to grasp magic. The battle between mages and drones ensues, in the end with the help of the dragons mages win. I am not completely sure but the author may be Ursula Le Guin. >inb4 >>/r/ /r/ is full of porn and I doubt anyone there have ever read a book. I tried anyway but no response.

What book would do you recommend to other people the most? For me Patrick Rothfuss's The Name of the Wind.

If we assume that information is directly related to supposedly causal processes, such as brain chemistry and the only reasonable argument for determinism is that scientific theories concerning those processes have been verified over and over again, how is possible for those theories to not be affected by the information they produce? For any theory to be useful it must be able to increase our knowledge i.e. we can predict future events. But for theory to work there can be no unknown variables in the causal process.

What do you do to read in very noisy environments? I tried music, even ambient music, but I can't focus on the reading whilst the music is playing. I thought about static noise or something like that, what do you guys think? What are your strategies?

How do I actually "Start with the Greeks"? What is the best starting philosophical text for someone who's never read any besides a few Zizek books and some Thoreau in high school? Should I jump straight into original works or pick up some sort of textbook?
