The Internet Archive has uploaded 60 classic handheld LCD games for free

1 Share

Handheld gaming consoles weren't always the mobile powerhouses they are today. Indeed, before the days of the Nintendo Switch or even the original Nintendo Game Boy, they were essentially just LCD screens that lit up different parts of a single image to simulate on-screen movement.

Yesterday, I happened to waste some time thinking about free will, and then that it more or less depends on what it really means to choose something, and then pondered the question of what a choice really is. I tried stripping out everything unnecessary and ask "could you define choice from a pure physics point of view, without anything personal attached to it?"

Then the following sentence bubbled up in my mind: "Choice is when out of all possible futures, one in particular happens"

And I thought.. "Wow... that sounds deep and means absolutely nothing"

The Time-lapse Of Your Soul

1 Share

I know right now it seems like you'll never forget, because this hurts, but one day you will.

So I want you to tie some string around your finger, because I want you to remember something.

I want you to remember that none of this beat you.

I want you to remember that you were stronger than all of it.

And this didn't kill you.

You killed this.
