Yes, it's not particularly a science so I don't think it's fair to call it a pseudoscience. You can try and test if w science as you can try anything but psychoanalysis is analytic

Auto-didacticism is the patrician way. If you're high IQ, Chad, alpha, elite, genetically superior, supreme gentleman, etc, this is the way for you.

Paying like a cuck to sit for a few hours a week to listen to some pseud """teach""" you shit to get a piece of paper that says you """know""" some bullshit is the pseud way. If you're a midwit to low IQ, incel, beta, peasant, genetically inferior, normcattle, reddit, etc, this is the way for you.

>"B-but muh piece of paper! This means I know shit and you don't!"
Unholy cringe.

A good programming blog post talks about ideas that follow from code but don't speak entirely for themselves. It should have something to say about programming itself, not just what it's used for.
This is a good one: https://vorpus.org/blog/notes-on-structured-concurrency-or-go-statement-considered-harmful/
Based on lessons learned during a long period of development, gives a reasonable but non-obvious motivation for the idea it promotes. You couldn't look at the code and come away with the understanding the writeup gives you.
https://flak.tedunangst.com/ is also good. Short and to the point, often based on an unusual piece of software or an OpenBSD bugfix.

>”The chairmen, porters, and coalheavers in London, and those unfortunate women who live by prostitution, the strongest men and the most beautiful women perhaps in the British dominions, are said to be the greater part of them from the lowest rank of people in Ireland, who are generally fed with this root [the potato]. No food can afford a more decisive proof of its nourishing quality, or of its being peculiarly suitable to the health of the human constitution.” - Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations

How did he know Irish prostitutes were so beautiful?

Are prostitutes /lit/?
>>
>>15817839
Kind of. It'd more attitude of the client that matters, not the prostitute herself. Read about italian courtesans that slept with artists or In the Search of Lost Time if you want to get it. Not the best example but good enough.

What does /lit/ think of her?

>I probably spend more time reading than any other thing I’ve done in my life, including sleeping. I’ve spent many, many days of my life reading eight and ten hours a day, and there’s no day that I don’t read for hours, and don’t ask me how I can do all the other things — I don’t know. The day has pockets — you can always find time to read.
have you completed your eight hours of reading today /lit/?

How do you cope with the fact that reading books literally equals to inhaling other peoples brainfarts?
>>
>>15817942
you live on a planet with 10 billion other humans struggling to get fed and you think you're above inhaling a fart or two?

everything you have ever thought said and done is not only the brain farting of others, but the sloppy, poorly expressed wet farting of others. reading is the only possibility for original thought.

by reading more books in holes of catching some valuable brainfarts

>>15817942
By realizing that only the most brilliant minds can comprehend the immense erotic energy contained in a fart.

Exceptional books are more akin to brainorgasms though; you are incorrect to assume brainfart books are the only type of books.

Was accelerationism ever a serious philosophy or is it just a rancid meme from five years ago?

>which means you can somehow have a Capitalism without use-values or exchange-values
Capital has been surprising us for millenias and marxist think their context-dependent definition of capitalism transcends time? They couldn't even foresaw Technique as the determinant, and instead propped up economics (a technique) as the driving force. A "capitalism" that isn't "capitalism at all" is not a counter-argument to capital as noumenon. It only shows that your own constrained definition of what Capitalism entails might be too narrow.
