@liaizon apparently I'm starting to forget my own essays because I didn't even realize I was making references to hyperstition this far back in my writings

@nyx it was my favorite word all last year

@liaizon you've probably came across this post before but just in case, it's a fantastic piece on hyperstition http://hyperstition.abstractdynamics.org/archives/006777.html

@nyx thanks i hadn’t seen it before
