“Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts” - Richard Feynman

“I think we live in an unscientific age in which almost all the buffeting of communications and television-words, books, and so on-are unscientific. As a result, there is a considerable amount of intellectual tyranny in the name of science.” - Richard Feynman

Upton Sinclair wrote The Fasting Cure over 100 years ago. Free on Gutenburg. archive.org/details/fastingcur
A short read. Upton says that a proper fast should only be done to fix something mental or physical and then no fasting unless you are trying to fix something. I lost 35 lbs in 2 weeks before my hanger not hunger got to me. Weight came back in 2 months because incomplete fast. Will restart. On the water fast you can drink what you like. Half of the book is letters from his readers.

Just cat to a file to make a post. Why make it more complicated than that?

Show thread

After thinking about this I don’t think it makes much sense. ActivityPub is more like a conversation, Gemini is more like a publication. I would just cross post a link back to the gemini post instead of posting full text of the gemlog into activitypub
