“The good composed of all goods; an ability which suffices for living well; perfection in respect of virtue; resources sufficient for a living creature.”
Aristotle says that the eudaimonic life is one of “virtuous activity in accordance with reason…
even Epicurus, who argues that the eudaimonic life is the life of pleasure, maintains that the life of pleasure coincides with the life of virtue…
Eudaimonia implies a positive and divine state of being that humanity is able to strive toward and possibly reach. A literal view of eudaimonia means achieving a state of being similar to benevolent deity…
Now a look at the same family on Ancestry.com in their ‘Pedigree’ view:
Ancestry offers both a ‘Pedigree’ view and a ‘Family tree’ view, and the ‘Family Tree’ view functions relatively (pun intended) the same as the familysearch.org family tree view, but they are presenting it with every node open in both directions, which gets unwieldy fast.
Here is my one sentence review: AMAZING; WHERE IS MORE?
The key game mechanic that sets Control apart from most games these days is that it allows itself to be hard. The Board training gives you just enough info to survive. You slowly acquire more and more abilities, but it is up to you to figure out how to figure out the right combos for the right enemies. There’s no magic bullet; no one size fits all OP ability that lets you just stomp on everything just by pushing that button every single time.
I’d been flying spaceships in Star Citizen for too long and Control reminded me of everything that I really enjoyed about the ghost of gaming past.
Assuming SpaceX hits their 100T to orbit goal, one relatively full load of steel plates at 6.36m² x 0.31cm thickness (and roughly 175,000 lbs) laid out in a square would be a flat surface of 484m². If you think about making a bigger ship where the surfaces are 484m², you can build a borg (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borg) cube style vehicle hull in a month… or a drake cat hull ( https://starcitizen.tools/Caterpillar) style vehicle of 5325m length in less than a year (assuming they can match current capabilities of weekly launches and not the multiple times daily that SpaceX has ambitions for).
As a visual reference: 484m² is roughly 210 shipping containers square and 5325m is roughly 978 shipping containers long. This type of vehicle could easily self-sustainably support a crew of 100+ very comfortably with current o2 tech. SpaceX and others will no doubt improve on and significantly advance the life support tech needed for larger sustainable space vehicles.
As with most estimates, all these numbers have rounding slippage at every level of the calculation, but this is actually a good thing given that the vehicle hauling things to orbit (Starship) is currently in prototype form and having extra wiggle room on volume and weight is a good thing.
The issue of the Linux kernel freezing continued even after removing docker. What I did to resolve it was upgrade to the 5.10.x LTS line. Then I upgraded the nvidia driver to the latest compatible version that had been released in November [link], rebooted, and everything was working smoothly and at the correct resolution.
FOOD AND SUCH
For late breakfast I had a green smoothie and a leftover donut. Lunch was leftover steak and spinach quiche. Dinner was porkloin slices on a spinach salad topped with roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic. Dessert was tortilla chips with homemade salsa, and the last leftover donut. I also ate a few fiber bars as snacks during the day.
I ordered some magnesium supplement to help get into a better sleep cycle.
