General Earwa / Save Bakker's The Unholy Consult
« on: June 29, 2015, 04:56:27 pm »
Some of you may have heard that Bakker recently confirmed that he nor his agent has heard anything about a publishing date in about half a year since turning in his manuscript. Love him or hate him, Bakker's The Second Apocalypse is too rich not to be completed. So far the social media response to harass Overlook Press and Orbit UK has been lacking at best. Even Wertzone's plea drew a dry response.

Please, please, please, if you have any appreciation for this series tweet or email Overlook, first and foremost, and Orbit UK.

David Eagleman - Can We Create New Senses for Humans?

For Bakker context:
Encyclopaedia Ex Nihilo (TPB)
Encyclopaedia Ex Nihilo (SA)

The worry is - so far as I can tell - that sociocultural leanings to augment based on pre-augmented ideological commitments will render communication between disparate groups meaningfully impossible.

General Earwa / Links to Fan Resources
« on: December 01, 2014, 09:09:23 pm »
This has been updated to reflect all new links.

Quote from: Madness
Willem suggested this thread to consolidate fan resources on and off the forum. I've updated this post to include an extra-plethora of redundant links.

1. There is a sticky'd thread with a link to all Cu'jara Cinmoi's posts. At this point, I'm not personally going to take the time to transcribe Bakker's Zombies Three Seas posts. Everyone is welcome to pollute that thread with their favorites. That includes any aphorisms that anyone would like to share. Eventually that thread can earn the title curated like lockesnow suggested. [It actually became its own thread: Curated Sayings].

2. lockesnow was kind enough to consolidate the epigrams from all the books for us. In every book subforum [WLW, TJE, TTT,
TWP, TDTCB] there is a sticky'd thread. I'm working on consolidating TPB's aphorisms and the new ones Bakker's been doing over social media: [This has been done within Curated Sayings]. Truth Shines, I believe, and Wilshire also got the Wikiquote project off the hop and everyone is welcome to partake in those threads (again, sticky'd by subforum [WLW, TJE, TTT, TWP, TDTCB].

3. I'm not sure what qualifies as critical responses - I have a list of Interviews & Articles that I'd consolidated over the years. lockesnow still has a few - referenced in other threads - where Bakker has some quality commentary on people's responses and reviews. Anyone is welcome to add any links to anything qualifying as relating to Bakker but also not an Interview & Article, like reviews, responses, commentary.

4. Fan Resources:
There's The Prince of Nothing Wiki.
The aforementioned Wikiquote: The Second Apocalypse, R. Scott Bakker.
Three Pound Brain - Bakker's Blog.
Many, many threads on Westeros Literature forum [enumerated by book titles and roman numerals. They are a couple odd threads out - as our speculation was and is insatiable - but you can ask around there for those or search the history for Bakker and other keywords.

5. Everyone is welcome to and encouraged to participate in The Almanac [Nearing the end of TDTCB!]. All I can ask, at this point, is that people participate in the forum at large as they can - we all have unique lives.

Also, please tell myself, Francis Buck, or Wilshire if there is anything that would qualify as a resource that I've missed.

EDIT:

Zombie Three-Seas - The Resurrected Read-Only version of Three-Seas forum, a forum for the Second Apocalypse which was finally overwhelmed by Spam Sranc after the release of TJE.

Summary of Where We Left Off: The Unholy Consult

Arose in a conversation between FB and I. I wanted to address it later because I was failing to remember them all when FB asked me.

General Earwa / The Blasphemer's Guide to Blaspheme
« on: August 26, 2014, 04:00:58 pm »
And with this post I complete one and begin another of my many dreams.

This is the consolidated monstrosity of most of the relevant content discussions of R. Scott Bakker's The Second Apocalypse on George R.R. Martin's Westeros Literature subforum over the past decade.

My thought for this thread is that we might come together as a greater fandom of two forums and suss out the wisdom of the Westerosi Bakker noosphere a la A Song of Ice and Fire's The Heretic's Guide to Heresy.

I will slowly begin to go through the below threads to see if I can find the general themes, arcs, etc, of our collective descent into delusion. I will perpetually update this thread as I can and as others (hopefully) participate in my mad endeavour.

It is my hope that following or during the completion of this damned journey, I might find volunteers to aid me in writing a version of HERESY 100 for The Second Apocalypse.

Also, I will be removing/adding threads from this list as I figure out which ones are not speculation on content specifically. I know I missed a few in my endless search. As well, for instance, the Neuroscience, Humanity & Some Occasional Bakker as well as the Bakker and Women threads are debatable inclusions as are any review, preview, or recommendation threads.

Cheers.

Hi all,

This is MG's brainchild to imitate the Westerosi threads. This week's topic, just like any other week, is anything and everything!

Have fun, kids!
