Hi David!
Avatar 🤖 Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Handy Haversack:

tim, I don't have a cell phone, so I'm not expert, but the "G" just means "generation," I think and has no actual technical meaning. It's just the latest cell network with supposedly a higher bandwidth since that's the progression of the tech.

And then I guess it also has a magical property to slide seamlessly into fake conspiracy theories that right-wing money PACs create so that elections stay stupid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm chris in the redwoods:

tim, what i have heard is the 5G (a radio signal) is at or near the same frequency as some safety features on modern aircraft. so, proximity to those 5G signals could cause interference with the safety systems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Mark Hurst:

Hi everyone, thanks for joining!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm coelacanth∅:

hey David (iL)

tim i'm no expert but it apparently is on the same frequencies as planes' navigational devices, as well as weather-predicting devices.
Avatar 🤖 Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Handy Haversack:

But they ALREADY wanted phones off on planes so as not to interfere with nav equipment, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Ike:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm coelacanth∅:

Handy it's not just the phones ON the planes. we are all bathing in phone radiation at all times, and the waves travel to and from satellites, so so are the planes.
nasa sent firm warnings to not let it go down but just as with the physical ecology of this planet, immediate convenience rules.
Avatar 🤖 Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Webhamster Henry:

European 5G near airports doed not have this problem, possibly due to better or more thought out antenna design.

  6:18pm Sam:

Nothing like doing a cannonball into a big pool of capital
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I gather 5G uses higher frequencies - or the more actually master 5G does. What Handy says about it not actually being a technical designation probly relevant here... Whether it is actually faster &/or more reliable - for all the pay-in that's already happened - another question... I've heard it may interfere with altimeters in planes...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Folsom:

The problem with the altimeters is that the filtering on the altimeter antenna may not filter the 5G signal enough. To keep the 5G signal from interfering with the altimeter they would have to install additional filters on every plane, and I guess that is impractical. There was a similar case from a company called LightSquared, that would interfere with GPS, they had to stop their development.

Beside all the other reasons, I think musicians, actors, and artists tend to be on the Left side of things because any honest such know in their guts that for every 'success' there are at least ten 'also-rans' of equal or superior ability. Even the 'successes', modulo a few nuts (who tend to be rightists) know that luck played a big part in their success.

ultimately i got it working, after several calls to them; no google and shit (though it wont let me delete it completely)
but the camera wont work without the microphone enabled.
so no camera.

Avatar 6:31pm Fox:

Lyme Disease went undiagnosed and wrecked me for decades, using up my 20s and 30s looking for answers, ultimately resulting in my being on disability. The greatest silver lining of this is my inability to compare myself to others, or judge my personal success on outside validation. Any art I make is after decades of nerve damage and brain inflammation. Comparison is useless. Everything I do or create is for the making, it's all for me. I am free of traditional competitive ambition, and it's pretty great. I'm just happy to exist and feel capable of joy.
Avatar 6:32pm Fox:

This whole podcast reminds me of the Alan Watts buddhist tale with the farmer who repeatedly says "maybe" to everything that happens, never taking a stance of events as being good or bad as we never know what will happen as a result.

Vince:
At this risibly primitive level of technology it's inevitable that a lot of people will be unhappy regardless of how we try to divide-up the unhappiness, we're just that inept.

We have to get even better at manipulating the matter and forces that make us and everything we need for survival. Keep us from deteriorating and dying, usually well before only a century, free even more of us from horribly mandatory labour in agriculture and then in offices, and so free us from bosses as some of us have been freed from the worst of political hierarchy and despots, and then maybe we can talk about some chance of feeling good.

Some are on top and want to stay there, which is understandable. Scarcity put them there, and as such they likely can't believe that it could be over, and even if they could a lot of us couldn't, because it's _dangerous_ to think Scarcity is over when it isn't—I think that was the hippies' main mistake, the morality post- _must_ be very different to the anti–free-rider morality during. (Someone wrote that fear of free riders is all that made mutual aid possible when things were very scarce.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Ike:

Some of the Pay As You Go plans refill automatically, thought I've had some trouble with H2O with that, so I don't recommend them if you want the most hands-off way to go. It doesn't always refill every 90 days like it's supposed to. I think Page Plus is more reliable for that.

Try having four children and pretending this does not affect you or your children, it gets exponentially more frightening. I am feeling it here in Australia (like you won't believe) it is honestly like 1984, even my church has been giving me the cold shoulder. Remember I'm an ordinary peaceful chap, just living my life with my family and doing my best to say out of trouble.

@Franco: I posit that - a drug with a low threshold for overdose & addiction is not quite equivalent to a psychedelic - nor is a gun to a spoon... As for Tech, who controls them & what effects the things themselves have on human & societies - I do see as two different questions - which obviously relate...
