    I give Lakatos and Feyerabend credit for recognizing the problem: materialists can't advance science because a position of strong determinism means it's impossible to make choices, and once you strip this away discernment is effectively impossible (and therefore intuition as well). The idea that your scientific methodology is already the prisca sapientia precludes the possibility of discovering new patterns- logically, new phenomena must somehow fit into the old paradigm as a complex series of epicycles.

    Anton Lesser. Plays a maester in Game of Thrones. This is the consummate insider role in the SoIaF universe- maesters attend to lords and ladies and handle all their mail. The books repeatedly imply that maesters tamper and sabotage in pursuit of an agenda all their own.

    0-1 starkid improvisation, impressionability (see Martin's take on bells).

    1:40 “and then they join in the kind of, chorus, that makes us the…”

    “70-80% of a movie is sound”

    Wikipedia devotes a section to listing "recurring collaborators". The same concept applies to Christopher Nolan, (M/S)S.

    Edit: (the above point is intended to provide proof of the idea that starchildren are "small group manipulators", who form close relationships with a small group whom they then empathetically direct to achieve their ends, often to enact greater "interconnectivity", or pursue an artistic vision as with Boyle).

    Jean Piaget, developmental psychologist.

    "Piaget wanted to revolutionize the way research was conducted. Although he started researching with his colleagues using a traditional method of data collection, he was not fully satisfied with the results and wanted to keep trying to find new ways of researching using a combination of data, which included naturalistic observation, psychometrics, and the psychiatric clinical examination, in order to have a less guided form of research that would produce more empirically valid results. As Piaget developed new research methods, he wrote a book called The Language and Thought of the Child, which aimed to synthesize the methods he was using in order to study the conclusion children drew from situations and how they arrived to such conclusion. The main idea was to observe how children responded and articulated certain situations with their own reasoning, in order to examine their thought processes (Mayer, 2005).

    Piaget administered a test in 15 boys with ages ranging from 10 to 14 years in which he asked participants to describe the relationship between a mixed bouquet of flowers and a bouquet with flowers of the same color. The purpose of this study was to analyze the thinking process the boys had and to draw conclusions about the logic processes they had used, which was a psychometric technique of research. Piaget also used the psychoanalytic method initially developed by Sigmund Freud. The purpose of using such method was to examine the unconscious mind, as well as to continue parallel studies using different research methods. Psychoanalysis was later rejected by Piaget, as he thought it was insufficiently empirical (Mayer, 2005).

    Piaget argued that children and adults used speech for different purposes. In order to confirm his argument, he experimented analyzing a child’s interpretation of a story. In the experiment, the child listened to a story and then told a friend that same story in his/her/their own words. The purpose of this study was to examine how children verbalize and understand each other without adult intervention. Piaget wanted to examine the limits of naturalistic observation, in order to understand a child’s reasoning. He realized the difficulty of studying children's thoughts, as it is hard to know if a child is pretending to believe their thoughts or not. Piaget was the pioneer researcher to examine children’s conversations in a social context – starting from examining their speech and actions – where children were comfortable and spontaneous (Kose, 1987)."

    Just all-round bigskull. Some busts/depiction indicate Occ mass as well.

    Eyes look rather narrow-set even accounting for the forehead breadth I would say.

    He was a skilled poet apparently. Began as a priest.

    Self-centered ambition fucking the legacy of the Republic. Leaders like him are a sign of cultural and ethical decline. Similarly with Napoleon. Thus the transition from the Republic into Empire.

    His successor Augustus had to mandate marriage and procreation due to the decline of both marriage and the birth rate at the time. Calling for a return to traditional social norms that had fallen out of fashion.

    It worked with potato-jesus, question is if all publicity is good publicity. I see a lot of shilling that neanderthals are todays jews racially, might be something to take into consideration.

    Norman Mailer. Six wives, running laps around Newt. Possible occ/fauxc. Book "The Gospel According to the Son" has him imagining Jesus' perspective.

    Other alpine person. Alpines tend to look like Gray Aliens because of neotheny/pedomorphism, i think most of Starchilds are alpines and alpine influenced types

    Looks like Vitalik Buterin- deepsock and high temporal mass (this is called bulb). With bulb, the ears are characteristically outward tilted, yet the head is taller that it is wide, as regular temporals would induce. Although the person who coined the term spidermelon (Vejiortan) does not use it thus (his archetypal example was Richard Grasso, who to my eye has large temporals and melon eyes, thus SM), Aeoli and I refer to people with lots of bulb as spidermelons (Vitalik and Smith qualify). Smith seems to be backswept par too, which helps explain the goodtest. Further examples of bulb would be Emmanuel Macron, Mark Zuckerberg, Yuval
    Noah Harari, and Hafez al Assad. Also Megamind.

    is the ur-SC the same as the ur-BULB? You get a "Vegito" situation (yeah I know...). I would call this a bulb-melon because he does not beat jack ma at looking the whole SC part. I hope this makes sense. something something about "the eyes are teh windowd of the soul" as a famous american-chinese blogger once said

    Jesus. I'd say SS rather than bulbhead, but still... good find. Aeoli suggested this is what ur-bulbhead looks like:
