Mind's Forge

Welcome. If you're looking for something from my old project site, check the Internet Archive snapshot. I'll work on making pages for my old projects (maybe) or I may just continue ripping through this illusion of space-time without looking back.


News

06/08/2020 It's the same old same old. Watching plants grow, and die, trying to get things to thrive and testing the limits of others resilience. It's just like the good book in a lot of ways, current events unfolding the way they are, history repeating itself over and over again, same patterns, echos of the structure of the holy prototype itself. Some things are going parabolic though, so expecting lots of volatility in coming months and years, but I'm predisposed to that sort of thinking if my self-reflections are worth anything.

Lots of cactus seedlings and grafts seem to be doing well, my Huerina Zebrina got root rot due to the store bought cactus soil not draining. I have a bunch of arms that I separated drying off, so maybe some will start to root. Also been experimenting with incubating quail eggs, I'm sitting next to a smelly incubator right now (purchased more for microbiology experiments, but should work)... I have a feeling the post really man-handled the eggs, we've got about 2 more days before I really give up on this first batch. I have another 20 eggs going from another seller that I started last week too. They were shipped in much better packaging and seemed to be more consistently large. I have a better gut feeling about this second batch of eggs.

Still formulating an energy drink, the recipe really hasn't changed much the past couple months. Also formulating (reverse engineering) sugar free mints for dry mouth, also good success there, but haven't written about it at all (until now!). Working on theological philosophy, increasing synchronicity. Hopefully update some pages soon!

05/09/2020 It's been a little while and the plants have been taking off, even the cat's claw started growing after I potted it and brought it in under the LED grow light. I've become pretty comfortable with how cactus grow and graft, so I should be doing some actual x-ray exposure on a few of those seeds soon. I uploaded this video exposing the scam UV-C "corncob LED" bulbs that have showed up on eBay yesterday, where we incubate a couple petri dishes, one exposed to the light, one control and find out it's a big ol' lie. I have collected and dried some good looking seeds from the F1 generation of x-ray Wisconsin Fast plants, and we're basically ready to go to plant the F2 series of seeds. I'll be updating the x-ray plant pages after publishing this news edit!

04/19/2020 Just installed an instance of PeerTube here at video.mindsforge.com. I made a video last night (testing a head mounted GoPro setup) and was upset about YouTube being so "owned" these days and want to stop feeding that system. I have some other videos too, like the one I just test uploaded of the cactus graft. I also received the adjustable pipettes in the mail yesterday so I should be able to work on making up the sterile phage buffer solutions soon.
