it bothers me to see so many people (including myself), we “learn to code” and all of a sudden we are only able to see the world in terms of finite determinate sequences of quantifiable actions. the act of modelling the world inside a computer diminishes the world, erases huge parts of it that we have willfully made ourselves blind to.

it’s one thing to be like me, someone who knows i am blind, someone who knows that for people untainted by this damage, the world is in some ways richer.

it’s another thing to have this blindness and insist your perspective is somehow more real, more rational, more objective. that stuff is a virulent scourge
