[2012-May-13] Boy, this is surely a plausible setup!

It is surely plausible that any child capable of holding its head erect would be going to a parent to ask what 1+1 is! As always, a totally naturalistic way to get where you wanted to go, Zach.

I don't really have anything more complex to ask about this comic than...
...What the fuck?

Just when I think we are back to semi-amusing jokes, and Zach pulls me deeper into the bottomless abyss of lame.

Somewhere deep down, I believe that the abstract memory of funny, non-philosophical SMBC comics summons their existence back to reality.

When did we get back to semi amusing jokes?

I was still suffering from that horrendous run and did not notice, there was indeed some up looking but hopes have now been dashed.

Maybe whatever happened to him that made him funny for that brief while will happen to him again.


The death of a relative, perhaps.

Ah, Zach, I see you've been reading some German Idealism/Romanticism. This sounds like Fichte or Schelling to me. I liked it. Well done!

Thanks for catching the reference, the one plus one example (and discussion of patterns having a separate way of existing) is reminiscent of some things that I once wrote in a paper; I was wondering who's ideas these really were.

Can you be more precise about that remark? I'd love to know what this joke stems from, in terms of a specific book or books.

And yes, the setup is implausible, but hey. Sometimes you have to build a bridge out of whatever is laying around.

Zach forgot the password to his account, creates a new one?

Is this the reality we live in?

I too would like to know if this is the real life, or is this just fantasy?

That's what I was thinking of. It's just stayed with me, all this time.

"I Am a Strange Loop", by Douglas Hofstadter

I'm reading it right now, so I recognized it immediately.

Good one, Zach.
