  1. What type of hobbies do you have?

    I just tend to spend a lot of time with (behind) my computers ...Sometimes it even can be helpful for others, because I run Linux (Slackware) and usually report encountered bugs, and try to help in fixing them....
  2. Mardock Scramble (anime)

    I was looking for AMVs, and entered "anime dolphin" into search box ...to my surprize I found something I never heard about before ..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mardock_Scramble
  3. Not whole website, but interesting long interview, at least for me. http://nymag.com/scienceofus/2014/11/what-its-like-to-date-a-horse.html I think this one summarizes well love as ..art of being sensitive in everyday life? Also, there is final paragraph, saying.. https://orionmagazine.org/article/a-mind-in-the-water/ I like to turn this statement on its head, in sense ..what if many currently assumed to be non-sapient animals get some kind of artificial communication system? Not exactly telepathic, but working around their current limitations in making (inventing!) useful in everyday life language? I tend to be subscribed to view many so-called non-human animals lack I/O, not 'cognitive processing power', or more accurately they forced to live truely by their own mind, unable to 1) invent (! ever tried to INVENT system for expressing your thoughts..without any language as base??? ) 2) share with others (even std. language as humans use it tend to become very rigid on some complex aspects, until someone creates/modifies it for talking about something complex and deep, as life, for example) 3) use for everyday tasks/life without too big trouble , complex enough communication system ... There is of course my favourite dolphin remark (article itself a bit old, and as always, complex problem can't be accurately described in just few pages): Ha, ha...interesting idea, giving dolphins non-toy submarine to 'play' (haha) with..But seriously, of course humans (at least those assuming they are in control) will not give anything serious for non-humans, and any machinery currently require humans to build and repair it (so, it can be easily turned off). But may be if current human civ will survive long enough for developing wireless "mind reading" (brain/machine interface) for truely everyone (like today everyone has computer of some sort ...few can program their computers in truely arbitrary new ways ...) things will become interesting for one more time ....
  4. Andrew-R' s intro ....

    Hm, I figured out it will be better to say few words about myself. Problem is, i don't want to sound bigger than I'm, and most of things I ever wrote today look (for me) too incomplete, and not really reflecting my latest views. Guess at this point it will be fair to say I love dolphins (and associated beings) - but then this love turned out to be much harsher than I ever imagined. Captive dolphins turned out to be much nicer to me than I ever imagined, and lately dogs, too (esp. if you consider my thinking back in time ..I was reading some relatively rare literature in Russian, and was preparing myself for worst...in sense, worst really come, but not in form of dolphin's anger, but in form of their untimely and always wrong end-of-life, and my discoveries of real, not glorified humanity). I usually liked to read, and may be exactly my partial disconnectness with 'real world' helped me to form some ideals..not really welcomed in current life. Zoophilia is relatively new field of thinking for me, like, 4.5 years , compared to whole dolphin "theme" going on for nearly 15 years (from relative innocency of 'just reading about dolphins' to current crisis). I lost my (unfounded, as it turned out) faith in writing-as-way-to-change-world-by-changing-humans, because...well, with all those books I've read I still was unable to a) help real dolphins far enough b) was unable to change humans radically enough. So, I hardly want to write anything right now (it will not help ..anyone...), yet from time to time I run into few things probably interesting for other humans, so, I share them ... I'm not sure what exactly I can put as The Text describing me ..probably, trying to move away from overpositivist and inflating/inaccurate type of description I should also put out my _worst_ points, not only my best ones? But then, you can say all my points bad, from writer's perspective at least .... Fantasy.html
  5. Look what the dog dragged in..

    Hello, Ren Houk....Silverwolf said you are interested in history. (history of this relatively new movement, but usually those questions about _why_ things and beings move this or that way tend to lead to more generic kinds of questions, so to bigger history, damned questions of humanity, and all this...). I think memory is important, even if (often? always?) painful, at least when you really start to think about it. Sometimes I want to burn my memory (thown away hard drives, and other computer medium, and not only), but times and times again either my (remaining) friends find some of stories and details important, or even I rediscovers something I missed years ago...
  6. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/alt.animals.dolphins/Norwegian$20man|sort:date/alt.animals.dolphins/opp8RQNRoy0/rzvn_va79ngJ (link should work without google log in) You can also search same group for some more info and (old, but sometimes relevant) battles/debates. I tried to read it from very beginning (webinterface was different, today you probably need to set search filter for 1994 or so, then move forward post by post), but stopped around 2000 or so. Group mostly died as place for info/story exchanges and other kinds of ..social activity anyway... But it was interesting and most importantly USEFUL (for me) dive.
  7. blog.wetgoddess.net

    https://web.archive.org/web/20130330091613/http://blog.wetgoddess.net:80/ site itself (old version) http://web.archive.org/web/20150313091826/http://wetgoddess.net:80/ far as I understand Malcolm had some ..financial difficulty lately, so please help him if you can (he definitely trying to help others, even if I only can see this via his friend)
  8. Reddit /r/zoophilia has been banned

    Considering 30-30 was/is THE figure I actually was attracted to in r/zoophilia ...well, I just figured out he not really wanted to interact too much with me, so..I tried to talk about him in third person. Yes, I failed ....
  9. Reddit /r/zoophilia has been banned

    Thanks, but I have grand total of one story (in english), most of my works actually notes/compilations from specific books or papers. I was mostly thinking about back-linking love into bigger social context we currently live in. For me currently 'it' (love) represented by works like Erich Fromm's "Art of loving", references to love and lovers in Anthony Weston's books, inward-looking thoughts of John Lilly, language studies by Sue Savage-Rumbaugh (not so much about love per se, but language, philosophy, social context in learning and using language), active critical thoughts by Steve Best (but also activist he opposed), philosophico-political works of Will Kymlicka, and anarchist anonymous collective...quite a lot to unpack properly... Ah, also story by Derek Bickerton ("King of the sea" (fiction)), and real-world save-the-dolphin cases.. I hope those archives will not overload forum's software (much bigger and popular software forums sometimes forced to restrict total attachment size to something like 500Kb) [edit] yes, I understand those better to be placed in archive category, but ...was subreddit actually forum or not?. Some user profiles still around there ...

  10. as always, when I turn to some source, some source disappear (this time google decided this group was unsafe for viewing it, so, I can search, but not see any of those posts!). (un) fortunately I saved html file. Dolphin_sex_stories_1994.html
  11. This was captured 13/04/2013 by me. Currently blog says "vividrandomexistence.wordpress.com is no longer available. The authors have deleted this site." - so, I'm not sure it it really should be around or not. For me it was interesting blog, especially idea about 'silent' (on interstellar distances) planets habitated by sapient, but non-technological beings (like our cetacea). I checked few links before compressing and they seems to work, some images works, some others - not ... (The owner of the original site archived here has requested the archive be deleted. His request has been honored, as it should be. sw)
  12. dolphiness.net

    Found this one EXACTLY same day (sub)reddit was banned ...By simple google search , for "Lost at sea". There is updated version of same site http://cda.5e1.myftpupload.com/ (from link on home page).
  13. Zoos who are missing from the community

    I think I meet with Dolphin at Red Sea ...in late 2015. But not like we talked much after 2016 (he helped me with my trip to Black Sea right after our meeting - but unfortunately dolphin (real one) I tried to help died ... few months later. Thing was ...another, paired dolphin died (far away from us, at dolphinarium located basically in Black Sea) right in time when I was staying with Dolphin! So, we discussed whole thing heavily...I was already involved in attempt to save two dolphins from captivity..well..one already died by mid-december 2015, another lived few more months...oh, yeah )
  14. Reddit /r/zoophilia has been banned

    well, because this specific forum specialized in writings - i hope more humans will be able to express themselves here..not just 30-30 . But ...well, I used to detect non-standard thinking by reading it, today I barely write anything new. So, others hardly have same way to detect my real self as I did for other humans in the past. I also think without long and detailed posts like 30-30 likes to do - there will be much less thinking in written form - because, sometimes I (for example) can only answer in rel. short sentence, but for producting such sentence I need whole page of previous text, and many other things from my head... For now I can only say I agree with view where everything must be represented as accurately as possible - so, sex life, if represented accurately, definitely will be different from overly specialized one-thing-only version we tend to create around ..any most interesting for us activity, I think? So, _some_ kind of related 'offtopic' must be welcomed? I mean ..sociology, some high-end (in thinking sense) politics, science, philosophy (incl. philosophy of science)..No book alone, not even library of best books can replace world - but by interconnecting some ideas we hopefully will be able to make some changes..even on small scale. I for example currently making circles around micro-society idea, and try to find any ways for making humans fail less..Because? because you can't realistically care about dolphins or similar beings single-handily ..it must be collective work, but humans collective tend to fail in specific ways..not specific to dolphins, but specific to humans from modern society.
  15. Reddit /r/zoophilia has been banned

    ... but is there any possibility reddit sub will be un-banned? A lot of texts posted there seems to be lost...
