Cho Seung-Hui

This is my favorite shooter. A virgin autistic shy korean foreigner that just like Elliot couldn't cope with being asian in a heavily normalfag enviroment like the one you would find in the awful college life in America. So distressed and unable to cope, he went on a rampage, nothing atypical there.
I've always liked him because I could see him as a classmate that I'd hang out with or a person in general that would have the same taste as me, and this is ever since I was a teen and saw the guy on the news, i thought of him as just a typical asian college character that you'd see in a movie. Still, my favorite aspect of his, is that he liked writing and wrote two exhilarating and ridiculous plays. The first one, Richard McBeef, is extremely hilarious and full of domestic violence it's almost a parody of a normalfag family drama. It never fails to make me laugh and I'd recommend it to wizards.
I think that if more shooters had this creative side to them, they would at least be memorable, the current ones are simply people who are nothing to write home about. Meaningless stereotypes with nothing clever or interesting to say.

Porn is unwizadly and hurts wizards short and long term

Porn has irreversibly damaged wizards mentally due to it’s easy accessibility and widespread advertising (Sex scenes in films,, porn on imageboards, rule 34 everywhere you go to, fotm porn, Porn ads seeping through youtube on purpose etc.)

It’s as addictive as a drug, but more accessible as anyone can go on their phone, computer, tablet, etc, and it has horrible side effects such as:
1.Leading to Gayness (I can’t find a exact reason as to why this happens, but I can make observations about it and assume what the cause is and It’s likely due to the abundance of dicks in Porn)
A big example of porn leading to gay shit is this very site, you have people posting traps, femboys, futa, etc. on a site for celibate virgins (let's not even mention /b/) Now, have in mind that gays are a minority less than 1 percent and yet you will come here and see gay shit.
2. It causes Depression in high amounts and fries your brain.
3. By watching it you’re supporting lgtb degeneracy
4. By watching it you’re supporting gender confusion bullshit
5. By watching it you’re supporting cuck shit, and like with gay shit, cuck shit is also a side effect of watching porn too.

And the sixth and final reason, It’s a way to keep wizards down and stop them from questioning why they are wizards. It’s a major reason why tons of people stay depressed and broken.

If things continue going foward in this way not only will wizards degenerate into deviants who fap to trannies but most of them will be addicted to porn NEVER questioning shit about their situation and even going as far as to defend it.

ok I am 32 and have not been on this shit hole in years. Just wanna vent on why people project their issues on me due to the fact I am a full Asian male. I am homeless and been out and in of jail since my 20s. I have swarms of guys coming up to me and arguing on why I am not a full Asian male and that I am the peak performance of Aryanhood? That my dad is obviously White and my mother, the 14 words?

I have guys constantly coming up to me and demand I suck their dick cause I am a gook. Even though I am suppose to be half White???

That I should give them cigarettes, weed, booze, and dope.

That I have anger issues.

That I am only "big" cause I am "fat". "stop eating so much".

That I am only tall because I am "fat".

I'm from the most diverse city in North America. Apparently if you're 5'10 as an Asian male and know what a barbell is, you are clearly on steroids.

I have been accused of being on "steroids" since elementary school. I get constantly barked at for being on steroids.

My family treat me like shit since I don't worship Whites or Niggers. I am consistently shamed for fighting and making other men 'uncomfortable'.

Other Asians also express their disdain of me.

The cruelty humans enact on animals

Do you think it is okay to hurt animals? This means for food, sport, pleasure, or otherwise?

I look at the ways society treats animals, and I'm appalled. Mammals with complex social systems are kept in horrific conditions to produce meat, milk, and other animal products. Chicks are put into a blender live for the terrible crime of being the wrong gender.

It is rather appalling that people seem to so easily accept carnism despite the suffering that is behind the production of meat. Sure, animals make each other suffer and they also eat each other. However, unlike them, we have the choice to do differently. Yet so many don't. Eating meat is so, so horrifically cruel.

The Cucking of the White Race

How is it that white people have become so pathetic and self destructive in modern times? They can't express pride or love for their own people and skin color without being called racist, every predominately white country is expected to be flooded with other ethnic groups, and when those groups begin to take over by way of gaining political power its celebrated as progress. Whites no longer being the majority in their own countries is seen as a good thing, when the inverse would be seen as colonialism. What the hell happened?

Thoughts about the future and deterministic End of civilization?

Do you really think the world's a sinking ship? I hear people say we're in the fall of civilization all the time but I am skeptical because I think this can go on and on, people enjoy society to much to let it go. I hear lots of arguments saying the debt, new world order, totalitarianism, economy etc., I think only a huge natural disaster or world war could possibly spark the end of society as we know it.
Secondly, what would it be like? Are we talking about a Mad Max style apocalypse, or nomads eating berries, or dark ages?
It does feel like this could go on seemingly forever like it is now (worse outcome) but at least I get to enjoy creature comforts more. I love to hear what you have to say

Do you think discovering imageboards early in life fucks you up?

I already had ADHD symptoms when I was young but I feel like imageboards made them worse with how fast they are, the ability to jump through boards each discussing different topics and the total lack of barriers for making new threads. I got used to making a thread for whatever question or thought I had instead of trying to think a bit for myself first. Also something I thought about is how my PC is full with images from years of imageboards and how that made me a very visual person. I just feel like imageboards molded my brain and behavior and every time I think I can quit them because I am tired of the shallow level of discussion that comes from the fast pace and lack of barriers I somehow end up back and spending my entire day on them even if it makes me regret it at the end of the day.

Psychedelics and mental health?

I haven't been to wizchan for a good while, I remember there being a thread about psychedelics and drugs but it seems to have gone so… I will just create this thread to ask this question. Please excuse me for any spelling mistakes or anything, I'm sleepy af right now.

Anyways I want to use psychedelics to treat my OCD. I've always had a very mild and ignorable case of OCD that I think I inherited from my father. It consisted of very rare intrusive thoughts and some compulsions. But since 2022, shit's gone to hell. It all became extremely frequent and intense, and has take a toll on me. My life has been drastically affected and I'm feeling like crap due to it.

I have heard that psychedelics are extremely effective at treating OCD so I'd like to hear insights from anyone who has used those drugs before. I'd like to try this before going to therapy or whatever. Btw have a good year, wizards, peace.

Many, many years ago, I think it was 2017 I really wanted to help fellow wizzies.

So I got rich off crypto, yes, one of those early adopter guys.

In 2017 or so Ethereum was just starting to take hold. It cost around 7$ to 14$.

I did some modelling and extrapolated that it has extremely high likelihood of replicating Bitcoin's initial success due to tokenomic system.

I made a post on wizchan back in the day (forgot which domain) and told you wizzies to buy ETH as it will most likely go up 100x and you will all be rich like me.

Guess what happened next? Admin deleted the thread for no reason. I tried to help and admin just deleted the thread and warned me.

Of course ETH did 100x at least. All what I said happened over the course of next few years. If any lucky wizards read the thread before it got deleted you'd be rich right now.

It's really sad and kind of disgusting moderators did this and shot community in the foot. I really wanted to help and nothing more. For wizards like us getting rich is the ONLY redemption we can hope for.

some people will never be truly accepted in society

this down syndrome couple are like barbie and ken within the down syndrome ecosystem and that realization made me laugh so hard but also they don't seem aware of what's going on.
On the one hand, they must not know they can't be normalfag since people get an uncanny v alley reaction the moment they see them, on the other, they are totally unaware of this and have only a superficial understanding of what their actions, words, and clothes convey to the public, so they can't change it. You can see towards the end of the video reporters don't recognize them as normalfags or part of a group and having to deal with them besides what's necessary for tv would be bothersome.
The downies for them are just disabled people in normie costumes and with a lent mindset for general public appeal and nothing the downies do will change that no matter how hard they try. I think something similar would happen if a wizard ever tried to be "normal". People would notice and you will be discouraged because it doesn't come off natural. This is why when autists and aspergers search for friends they tend to look for others like them or risk being the weirdo of the group and even so there's still the risk of being the undesirable of the group.

deep veganism

i present to you charming, morbidly obese eaters of factory food: latest deep vegan lore. this is a 40+ minute review of a new device vegans can buy for ~4000$.

https://youtu.be/ioJyXYgZpuo

it is a home appliance (slightly smaller then a dishwasher) that freeze dries your food inside a vacuum. you put fruits or vegetables on stainless steel trays, put them in the thing, the thing gets super cold plus creates a vacuum and then it gets heated gently. this then runs for 30 hours or longer and that way the water gently leaves the stuff without being liquid because in cold vacuums the frozen water changes into a gas.

they say it can make stuff last for 25 years in a sealed jar and apparently the astronauts eat like that.

very hard working vegans would bother to dehydrate their food to conserve it but apparently that way lots of nutrients get lost because it oxidizes the whole time.

oh also vacuum blending is a thing. makes me wonder about vacuum juicers…

Reading 4chan and Feeling Awful

General Question: does just reading 4chan for longer than 10-15 minutes make anyone feel awful and almost as if placed into a trance state?

Enjoying watching things epically fail

I just enjoy watching entertainment products blow up spectacularly. Its like watching a train wreck or car crash except no one is actually hurt except financially. At the end of the day its just entertainment media so it doesn't really have real world consequences except for the billions burned. Its like the schadenfreude of enjoying another's suffering, but no one is really hurt. And the best comedies are the unintentional ones. Its like the behind the scenes drama of failing brands is more entertaining than what they actually put out.

I don't like those who have an agenda of hating a brand and wishing for it to fail. I mean I actually grew up on DC heroes instead of Marvel and so wanted the films to be good. But the whole DCEU has been an epic train wreck that deserves to be a soap opera in itself.

And then there are the recent games like Battlefield 2042 and Starfield.

And I enjoy the snarky critical reviews just tearing it apart like RLM or Pitch Meetings or Honest Trailers. The spoofs, parodies, cynicism, mockery. Longform reviews of terrible movies is an art in itself.

And for the most part AAA products that fail, its not in the so bad its good comedy level either for the most part. Because they try to keep it safe, and its not defined by some wacky producer's vision. Its usually safely in the so bad its bad category.

I've been watching the recent failure of Rebel Moon, and while there some funny quips, I'm still waiting for someone to comedically dissect it RLM style.

Forgetting your mother tongue

I was born in Moldova and my native language is Russian. I moved to America when I was 10, and since then I have forgotten quite a bit of Russian. When it comes to reading/listening, it’s fine. But when it comes to talking/writing, it’s getting pretty bad. I have an American accent in my native language, that’s assimilation for you.

So what should I do? Should I try to practice Russian or just let things be? It’s sad because if you don’t use a language , then you lose it. Does anyone else have a similar experience in forgetting their native language?

The Last Fap Thread? 69

Share the 2D pics, videos, or GIFs you enjoyed in your recent fap sessions

I've jumped on the opportunity to make this iteration myself as I'd like to also use it as a thread to discuss the future of pornographic content on Wizchan. There's been a lot of debate over the years from both users and staff concerning just how appropriate porn is at all on a website for celibates. There's always been a big divide between pro and anti-hentai users and a some of you have even gone on to demand radical changes, threatening legal action of some sort. The "Ban 3DPD entirely poll" won by just one vote after all. I think everyone's opinions should be considered, but remember that this isn't a real democracy so even if 300 "unique" users vote to change the Wizchan logo to a giant dragon penis, it's not going to happen.

Succubi by themselves aren't interesting

I'm a 34-old permanent virgin and my future looks bleak. Strangely enough I'm not really bothered by all that.

I fully realized one truth today however, and it hit me like a sledgehammer: Succubi, surely not all of them but the vast vast majority, are boring and predictable as some cutout cartoon character. I don't dislike them, I masturbate to pictures and fantasies including them on the daily, I've got really nothing against them. But I don't appreciate their prolonged company, as most of them are shallow, overly fixated on looks and trends and are really touchy … If I were gay (and this thought keeps echoing in my mind for some while now), things would be so much easier.

It is often said gifted individuals have powers either to help or to harm. Intelligence, creativity, and talent can steer toward both negative and positive ends of the moral/ethical continuum. Bright individuals can be either creatively malevolent or creatively benevolent depending on the interweaving of their values and behaviors. Gifted individuals are possibly at greater risk for adjustment difficulties, especially during adolescence and adulthood, due to their heightened sensitivity to interpersonal conflicts and higher levels of alienation and stress as a result of their intellectual and creative abilities. Some gifted students struggle in their school and community environments due to emotional intensity, motivation and achievement issues, lack of peers and isolation, identification problems, sensitivity to expectations and feelings, perfectionism, and other difficulties. These gifted students endure and survive in school rather than flourish.

what you think about it wiz? are you gifted?
i think there's 50/50 in wizard community, some just not able to get in to normie life or don't want to.
and some self isolate himself because his IQ creates huge gap in social harmony this basically alienates him and makes impossible to get into normie life because he sees normies as subhumans.

Human Cloning?

Background: A person with more than one set of DNA within their body is called a genetic Chimera. Chimerism is (supposedly) rare, but there have been a handful of cases where someone will even fail a DNA test, because the DNA sample taken from their body differs from the rest of their DNA. For example, a Chimera might take a DNA test, and the results might show that the DNA was from one of his siblings – even if he is an only child.

One potential cause of Chimerism occurs while in the womb. Like when the mother is pregnant with twins, but later one of the twins has seemingly vanished. When this happens, usually it means one of the twins died in the womb, and its remains were absorbed into the surviving baby.
When this occurs, it's possible that the dead twin's DNA might survive within the survivor's body.

So, hypothetically… if the surviving twin managed to retrieve his dead twin's DNA from his own body, could he use that DNA sample to make a clone of his unborn sibling?
Let's assume that in this scenario, cloning is not controversial and is completely legal, acceptable, and safe.

Bad luck with technology?

I can't tell if modern technology has just awful quality control or if I'm unlucky or pedantic. Every time I buy something there is like a 80% chance that's something is wrong with it but not in an immediately obvious way.

For example I bought a laptop and the trackpad would be laggy but when I uninstalled the trackpad drivers it would be smooth but lacking multitouch features making me think it's not a hardware issue. Yet re-installing windows didn't fix it. I asked on the internet forums for advice and got ignored despite describing my problem in detail that I thought would give a knowledgeable person hints to what could be the issue. I sent the laptop for repair and got it back unchanged. I was so exhausted by this all that I kept it since I got a deal good enough on it to ignore this issue.

I got a new monitor that got good review scores and it flickers in certain situations.

I got a new GPU and it has crashes and graphic glitches but only in certain games and situations despite normal temps and me trying out all the possible drivers.

Also often when I buy something new it ends up having scratches or dents that are just enough to annoy me but not bad enough to go through the trouble of returning the item leaving me in a state of regret once the warranty runs out and I keep noticing the fault every time.

Also it's depressing how useless customer support is and how useless people on tech issue help forums are with anything but the most simple problems. I would think they would be intrigued by strange tech problems but nope I just get ignored.

It's all so exhausting man. Consoooming should be fun but every time I buy something instead of felling excitement I just feel anxiety when opening the product to a point where I stopped looking carefully for flaws.

Most humans are evil, which causes a conundrum for non-evil humans. I feel bad for a random human who is the victim of bullying, but considering 90% of humans are bullies, there is a 90% chance the victim would bully other humans if given the chance. Stupidity is a cause of evil behavior, which complicates the conundrum. If you can convince a normal-minded human that its ok to inflict suffering on people who don't drink milk, the normal-minded human would do so.
A lot of people may agree with the analogy, until they hear what I believe are real life examples of this analogy. Never have I heard a good reason why having sex with children or animals is immoral, or why someone who does so should suffer. Most normal-minded humans would inflict suffering on someone who has sex with children or animals, because they are evil, and they are evil because they are stupid.

Why is 4chan still the most popular imageboard by far?

There are about 70x as many posts on r9k than there are on Wizchan. Do people on r9k simply not know about Wizchan? Are they too built into the habit of using 4chan to make the switch?
And its not how old a board is, either. 7chan has existed since 2006 (I'm pretty sure), and it's /b/ board has only 815,000 posts, while 4chan's /s4s/ board, which has only existed since 2013, and has amassed 10,000,000 posts.
How has 4chan, the most poorly moderated, poorly designed imageboard (except maybe endchan) held onto that many users?

wageslaving sucks when you work with chads

Two apparently alphas chosen by the divines or something have some sort of agenda at work to make everyone who they deem betas to be subservient too them.

Alot of it is the typical male dominance tactic, of a lot of touching of the chest getting all up in your face and insulting you type stuff. Even called me a beta which ok probably because I'm physically unfit. One of them is a built boxer and the other is an asshole unsurprisingly friends. Idk what I can do about it. I have fantasies of beating the shit out of both of them but it's highly unrealistic.

I saw this movie and it is one of the saddest and most decadent things I have seen in a while. A guy who was biologically designed to be submissive and follow orders, with the sole objective of killing his race, where his only consolation is an AI that appears as pornographic propaganda everywhere, at the same time that it is used in the worst possible way to be nothing more than another mercenary, making him believe that he is somehow the chosen one or some shit like that.

I haven't seen such a decadent movie in a while. The characters are dead inside, they are simple machines for killing and following orders, they lack freedom and are nothing more than puppets used for other people's interests.

Boomers

I had a thought today about how what the world's most important priorities are in a general sense and first and foremost existential threats. These didn't really exist until recently, the first real existential threat that came into the public consciousness was the threat of global nuclear war. Others like global warming and resource over-exploitation came into the public consciousness later. We mostly seem to have forgotten about the threat of nuclear armageddon as a possibility in this day and age, but it got me thinking about the psychology of the Boomers and how it would have been influenced by growing up in a world where the threat of nuclear annihilation existed. They were in a sense, the first generation that had to grow up with the threat of the entire world just ending one day. They had the duck and cover drills which of course wouldn't save them from the nuclear blast or the fallout.

Many people have, rightfully I think, accused the boomers of being the generation that fucked up the world with short term thinking and greed and selfishness. I wonder if this way of being and thinking was influenced by the thought that the world could end at any time so they should just try and get it while the getting is good and enjoy their lives to the max. They became wholly focused on themselves and the pleasures of capitalist consumer society as a way to stave off the existential dread from this threat constantly hanging over their heads. Now that I hear the term boomer another meaning comes to mind, specifically the boom from a nuclear bomb. I think that must have influenced them somehow and caused them to be as twisted as they are.

It would be incredibly ironic if this were true, because ultimately a nuclear war would not be as bad as the problems that they have created. What do you guys think about this?

How to fix my cock?

I am the ultimate and final retard.
So I happened to masturbate in prone position for 14 years, since I was a little kid, because my retarded ass didn't knew better, now the problem is that I can't move my penis beyond a certain angle, I always used to masturbate on bit of an angle that is when I was lying in prone position, I was a bit tilted on one side of my body, therefore the penis wasn't parallel vis-a-vis my body, I always masturbated on an angle, so now from the POV of my eyes, I can't have it perpendicular to my body, and I literally cannot point it towards the right. But I can point it towards the left, and that is the damn problem, is there any solution for it whatsoever?

foss android apps presentation

any wizards in the mood to talk about free android apps? i hope so, welcome to my ted talk about free and open (well mostly) android apps.

realistically i use like 5-10 apps on my phone: weather, music, newpipe (youtube) sudoku, osmand (open maps), calculator, clock, signal (for textmessaging) and calandar.

i have installed maybe 30 apps and most i don't use. i may have used them once or a few days but never longterm. i thought it would be fun to just talk about apps that are useful. whenever i look into my app drawer i am surprised how little of the possibilities i use. i just wanted to dive into them again. contributions and valid opinions based on principles are very welcome and appreciated by me. i intend on showing a few screenshots of apps i like and talk about them a bit. feel free to ask questions that relate.

first app i love is the alternative app store i use. i don't have google play on my phone, instead i get apps from the f-droid. you don't need the app to look what they offer, you can just see what they have with a browser.

this is the f-droid page about the f-droid app https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.fdroid.fdroid.

i like the f-droid very much and i am grateful for it because i never felt good using google play. in the beginning i didn't know better but then after i found out how dirty google had become, it just wasn't fun anymore to use android, i hated it, it became a chore and i didn't care about anything that happens within google play. f-droid feels so much better to me.#

strangely it always works better when i install it and then when i don't update if for months and months then suddenly the thumbnails stop working but other then that it has never disappointed me.

the unbearable heavyness of having a name

how do i find a name i like for myself? i don't think i want a name. i dislike and reject the fundamental concept of identification on a deep level. i hate to use names and i don't identify with my cattle name that my parents gave me. i never care for people's names and i seldom remember them.

for practical purposes a name might be useful so i think i should give one to myself. if people ask for my name usually i don't want to give it because i don't want that person to have a word that connects to me, thus existing in the language part of their brain. i prefer original sentience over conditioned language…

however if i don't have a name i kind of exclude myself from any social interaction that i might like. maybe i meet nice people some day and i want them to be able to give them a name. usually people always want to meet me while i hate it and they don't care because they don't have a sense of mutual interest.

i also don't want my name to be known by people that i don't consent to know it. thought about giving all the assholes my cattle name and tell the nice people my chosen name.

does any magician have any advice given my unusual preferences that i outlined? normies in bad faith gtfo.

just chuckled at the idea of calling myself question-Mark. maybe i'm looking for something stupid, ridiculous and disrespectful.

Waterclock home

I've been having this recurring idea which is a home I want to design around a clepsydra (water clock). A clepsydra is a waterclock used in antiquity to measure time with a volume filling with water at a known rate with something like a buoyant indicator pointing to a watch 'face' which shows where in the day and season you are. It was used up until the 17th century and was accurate to about 1% per year, and could account for the variation in length of day by means of the striped cylinder in the pic attached.

I set some design rules for my imaginary home which I think produce interesting and aesthetic design choices:

>1. No electricity (or minimal)

>2. Minimal moving parts, preferably just one moving part (a helical windmill with gearbox or escapement)
>3. Maximum automation with 'primitive' means
>4. Natural building materials only like clay or cob
>5. Must look cool - I have an aesthetic vision

Basically what I want to make is a large porcelain CPU situated in the middle of the house where water is both the input and output. A large helical windmill will continuously pump water to the top of the waterclock/CPU so that it can continue to function. It would be highly beneficial in my mind if everything could reach a state of homeostasis. That's ultimately what I'm searching for - a home that functions in a manner a body would, but in a way that benefits my body. The home literally becomes an extension of the planet AND myself - linking my needs and the planets will together.

Things I want it to accomplish:

>1. Generation of water by means of atmospheric moisture collection. Total independence of weather. Water generation to exceed evaporation rate

>2. The water can accumulate heat in a separate tank during the day and be pumped at night when the temperature drops.
>3. Saltwater compatible - Using saltwater I could cheat my 'no electricity' rule and perhaps do some electrolysis. Maybe keep saltwater animals/algae.
>4. Have a freshwater aquaculture/aquaponic farm for my (and my plants) nutrient needs. Urea provided by myself and my aquatic friends.
>5. Automatically water my garden at specific date, time, and amount or stop when the water table in a specific plot rises above a certain limit.
>Silly optional feature: Lighting done with bioluminscent algae suspended in saltwater channels routed around ceiling or something.


How:

Hydraulic logic gates - Diodes, NAND gates, amplifiers.

When I think of what I want from this house I want a home where everything can both automatically influence everything else yet have a means to cut itself off from negative feedback loops. This means there are checks and balances in my clepsydra/CPU - has output A exceeded its preset value of 50 litres? Then a 'valve' or channel is shutoff -without moving parts may I remind reader- preserving both my water and plants. To accomplish this I have downloaded a .pdf from the US government in the 1950s which discusses hydraulic logic gates. I have pretty solid designs for water powered NAND gates and anything else you might imagine. In fact soviets had entire industries running off of hydraulic/pressurised air logic and they published all their research - the only problem is a lot of USSR research involves high pressure and I would like mine to operate at ambient pressure and temperature.
This is where I believe my single moving part - the helical windmill - comes into play. My windmill will maintain a constant 'voltage' by topping up the reservoir tank (capacitor) keeping my water clock accurate. I think resistance can be offered up by tanks having a capacity of say 100L and then having a hole which drains it at that level, and should the 'current' (water flow) exceed that then there can be more holes/cuts in the tank to empty more water.



Why:
Why do I want to automate in this manner? I just think its neat. Every night I go to sleep thinking how my house in the middle of the Australian outback or Saharan desert could look like. A tiny self perpetuating oasis sucking moisture from the air and feeding me with fish from my underground aquaponics tank or something. Totally in touch with the planet, not poisoning the soil microbiome with nitrates or anything.


Where:
I want to try it in a desert with low humidity in the air as a total proof of concept that this can be used anywhere and make habitable the worst environments. Also open to not doing this in a desert as the humidity levels could cause too many issues. If you can't see it in a desert what about somewhere else??????????


Problems:
Energy storage - when the wind ain't blowing WTF do I do? How can I keep the clepsydra tank flowing? Perhaps a spring and escapement mechanism to store energy to keep that water flowing?
There is the MAJOR problem that water has different levels of viscosity influenced by temperature. In the case of water, the viscosity varies by a factor of about SEVEN between 0C and 100C. So a water clock operating at 10C will give a reading wildly different from a clock operating at 30C. Do I store the water below ground and try to keep the temperature at some constant?
I literally don't have any programming experience - how could I ever design a CPU with a novel concept to function in a manner that my life depends on?
Algae/biotic films growing inside my CPU causing issues - should I fill it with small crustaceans or snails or something to keep the heartbrain of my home healthy and clear of sclerosis?
The moisture content of most deserts is between 0-10% all the time. This drastically inhibits ability to pull moisture from air unless I use a a battery of say 100x peltier coolers powered by a single windmill to generate ice and drop it into a reservoir.
There is also the problem of some plants/soils releasing far too much moisture to the atmosphere. Building a greenhouse to trap moisture is a deadly mistake I think.
An oasis is not just an oasis for a human, many pests will seek it out and I am personally opposed to unnatural herbicides. How will I manage pests? Is there an opportunity here to fold gardens in around my aquaponics setup so they eat the invading bugs etc etc.


Please be as critical as possible I want to iron out any problems in my mental architecture before I move forward with model designs. I literally don't know WTF I'm doing, I DON'T understand electricity or logic gates etc - I DON'T have experience with this. I just want a self contained home that meets all the needs of a human in a desert and perhaps provides some small comforts as well.
