Juffo-Wup explained with a venn diagram

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the concept of mindfulness:

Quote
Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment,[1][2][3] which can be developed through the practice of meditation and other training

Ummmmm. That is not the impression of Juffo-Wup I got from meeting the Mycon.

Probably could be Juffo-Wup itself, the Mycon are just too obsessed with Juffo-Wup that they don't respond correctly unless it somehow seems to interfere with Juffo-Wup (according to them)

Hello extremely! I hope you like to *play*.
Some *campers* are not so good for *games*.
Is it time for *playing* yet?

Quote
We look to Juffo-Wup for direction, and it provides the pattern
endless expansion with purity of achievement and intolerance of error.   

Juffo-Wup is the power of life... hot warmth in the cold Void.
It flows through all things, binding them together, making them one.

Darkness is Void. Juffo-Wup is light.

Also. Check this video about fungal intelligence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nxn2LlBJDl0

Here is the Gorilla experiment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJG698U2Mvo

I am thinking that if there actually were ghosts that couldn't interact with us except for visually, we probably would have evolved so that we couldn't see them, because they would only distract us.

The funny thing is that I actually encountered something like a ghost one time I used psychedelics, and serveral times when I used to have sleep paralysis.

Visual art producing psychedelic effects

For individuals that have no experience with psychedelics, but want to get an idea of what it might be like, some types of art can generate visual effects that are similar to psychedelics. Staring at the animation below for a while seems to generate somewhat similar visual effects that last for a few seconds.




The animation seems to work by sending visual information to your eyes which causes your perceptive system to believe it is perceiving the world incorrectly. As your perceptive system adjusts itself to the unnatural object, you start to perceive everything else around you incorrectly. Reconfiguration of the perceptive system seems to involve the 5HT2A receptor, which also is stimulated by psychedelics.

https://www.archania.org/mysteries/#Visual_art_producing_psychedelic_effects

Or, an alternative explanation:

Quote
---- REPORT FROM SURFACE ----
BUKOWSKI AGAIN, SIR. WE HAVE FOUND ANOTHER RESEARCH INSTITUTE. WELL, THE RUINS OF ONE, ANYWAY.
THE COMPUTER HERE'S IN BETTER SHAPE, ALLOWING ME TO LEARN A BIT MORE ABOUT THE ANDROSYNTH'S
INVESTIGATION INTO DF, DIMENSIONAL FATIGUE.
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THEIR STUDIES ACTUALLY BEGAN OVER TEN YEARS AGO, AFTER ONE OF THEIR
BLAZER VESSELS DISCOVERED SOME PRECURSOR ARTIFACTS IN ALPHA LALANDE. AS FAR AS THEIR
SCIENTISTS HERE COULD TELL, THE DEVICES GENERATED DF WAVES WHICH WOULD ALLOW THE USER TO SEE
INTO OTHER... WELL, OTHER DIMENSIONS -- REALMS OF EXISTENCE WHICH SHARE POSITION WITH OUR OWN
UNIVERSE, BUT HAVE A DIFFERENT... GEE, WHAT SHOULD I CALL IT... REALITY PHASE. ANYWAY, THE
ANDROSYNTH HAD HOPED THAT THE DIMENSIONAL FATIGUE TECHNOLOGY CONTAINED IN THE DEVICES WOULD
PERMIT THEM TO CREATE NEW, FASTER FORMS OF HYPERDRIVE AND HYPERWAVE. INSTEAD, WHEN THEY BEGAN
THEIR EXPERIMENTS, THEY MADE CONTACT WITH SOME KIND OF LIFEFORM ON `THE OTHER SIDE', A CREATURE
FROM AN ALIEN DIMENSION.

You can read more about this theory, in this thread.

Doesn't work for me. Reminds me of Idle Revolution, though. On the other hand, I've managed to have somewhat psychedelic experiences by just staring at the ceiling for long enough, so maybe I'm desensitized to that stimulus.

The only other Venn diagram I have is this one:



Which presumably describes a more efficient way to govern a society than a system with a single president because of the diversity prediction theorem:



https://www.archania.org/theorems/diversity/

The diversity prediction theorem might also be used to argue that a person with high Juffo-Wup is better at predicting than a person that is high in only intelligence, scientific understanding, or mindfulness. At least if it can be proven that these are somewhat independent traits which all contribute to predictive capabilities.



I am now thinking that maybe Yuval Noah Harari has such good predictive capabilities because he has high Juffo-Wup. He claims to be meditating 2 hours a day. That should give him mindfulness. He is a professor in history. That has given him some scientific understanding. He also seems to be reasonably intelligent.

Many scientists have intelligence and scientific understanding, but they lack mindfulness. Therefore they are not as good as Harari at predicting. This all makes sense to me now....
