this features some c++ classes built on top of the cryptominisat library that makes it generally easier to use imo

finally posted my code that I used to help generate that one puzzle I got on "cracking the cryptic" github.com/blackle/KnightTours

"But how drastic could the consequences possibly be, if we added a tiny nonlinear term to the Schrödinger equation (which describes how quantum states evolve in time)? For starters, Gisi [42] and Polchinski [60] showed that in most nonlinear variants of quantum mechanics, one could use entangled states to transmit superluminal signals." love this shit

this isn't very impressive but imagine the hash had 24 zeros

here's an idea:

<KMasson> I'm gonna need proof that you're the creator of the basilisk collection, my guy

there was that one time-turner thing from harry potter and the methods of rationality which I did honestly enjoy.

there's also a paper about how some sci-fi concepts can be used to solve NP problems. scottaaronson.com/papers/npcom

to be quite honest, none of these solutions are particularly interesting to me. even though I kinda do want to do a "part 2", I only want to do it if I come up with some solution which is completely outside any of these options. I'd want to come up with a new thing

my ideas for how the basilisk collection was *actually* created are as follows, in order of how physically unlikely they are:
- someone found a really good preimage attack for sha256 / the "happy family" theory is true
- someone made a quantum computer and used grover's algorithm to find the hashes. honestly think this is as likely as the first item
- someone did a quantum immortality thing like sprague-grundy.github.io/dying
- someone seduced the angel of luck to tilt the odds of reality

still thinking about basilisk collection part 2 but idk...

automated cut-up technique: interlace two text files then pass it through openai's new book summarization network

I don't really know anything about star wars so this was an exciting experience of trying to figure out wtf is going on

I saw rogue one a few weeks ago but I only saw the last 30 minutes and I'd recommend just that

I wish this thing actually existed. I remember the cover had a guy in a cowboy hat lying amongst "colour out of space"-ass fractals

had a dream where I video called with an old coworker and we talked about how good the new sleigh bells album is and then he was like "if u like this check this out" and sent me a country noise pop album
