The 60 FPS Debate

RND/ Regarding Scientific or fact based non debates – a quick, conceptual zoom in on another frayed strand of the DNA of Derp at 60fps:

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.
– Isaac Asimov

To consider the digital conceptual research of post scientific ultra subjectivity in the so-called ’60 FPS’ debate – a playful imaginary scenario in which one considers poindexter hyper nerds – salty internet sealions suddenly materializing out of the digital woodwork in droves to argue the 60 FPS toss.

Except such ‘debates’ exist only virtually, and seem merely another platform andor excuse for Simpson style ‘comic book guys’ to split greasy micro fine nonexistent hairs – generally spit that sweet, loose white jive with abandon in self misconstructed, post scientific desert landscapes where ultra subjectivity rules uber alles – aka ‘I don’t know much – therefore scientists probably not know either’ syndrome.

in which every single contested frame feels up for useless argumentative grabs by those with inflated sense of personal knowledge. One distinct non irony; that such impossibly discerning visual acuity seems utterly wasted on such hyper generic,, pseudo interactive digital play space experiences in which such meaningless frames display or manifest.

It’s not even a matter of carefully contextualizing such scientific facts, comparing them with private subjective experience – but too often more simply undermining shoving aside anything in the scientific method which does not fit, eg. the 60 FPS pseudo debate model – a form of viral, wilfully self administered mass delusional “agnotology” or unknowledge which the internets appear to actively encourage and spew forth.
