I like the distinctions cognitive dissonance and cognitive assonance for unmunging or munging peoples realities as well. 

Mark de LA says
new thought comment – got invalid thought id before.

Mark de LA says
This is confusing.  I can’t figure out where this came from. Apparently a move is a move & doesn’t leave anything behind. 

Mark de LA says

Si says
Hummm. Could you explain that? The comment could only have been created by using the “add new comment” button, or now, also by pasting it to the thought from somewhere else.

Si says
It would be more helpful if you moved the depreciated comments over here from that location than ones, like the one above, that were accepted … just saying.  

It is your comment and if you want to move or delete it that is your business … but that particular one was accepted, a bunch of other ones near it were depreciated as off topic.

Si says
Cognitive assonance is a nice term. I like it. See thought 21343

When you mix it in the same sentence with the word munge, it creates literal dissonance … lack of harmony … mismatching. It’s like you talk about something good, then because you have doubt about the stability of goodness in your experience, you mismatch it. Just saying.

me i have to translate mark’s words to digest them.  One such translation is  “mung” = “combine” + “Mark’s special aug”.   I think mostly his aug is … and this is just my story of it, so don’t be surprised it don’t ring true over there  … but anyway the story goes that his special aug is a kind of vertigo when he encounters a factoring of signs that is different from what he is acustomed to.    he usually says something pretty pointed, but he tells you that in a way that says, don’t  make me fall way down that scary hole.
 

Si says
I could do that too … and that is what I do with most people.

If I did that, the fact would remain that Mark cancels out nearly all the good ideas and thoughts he has with mismatching, either directly at the time of saying it, or later with lots of mismatching commentary.

It’s not just his world that is getting cancelled and made “meh”, when I am in rapport enough with Mark to digest his stuff, it ends up being my world that is diluted too. So the choice being, leave his world and stay out of rapport, in thought (like you do) or literally, or ask for something better … I am asking for something better.

Seth says
well yes the aug does rubb off.

Mark de LA says
Move is different from copy/paste in ordinary DOS. A fork used to be a copy/paste leaving behind residue of the fact of the fork. Move now does not & is designed that way isn’t it?  Such leaves the possibility of mischief afoot – especially with your pink deletes. Moving context around while also moving comments around is a nice control mechanism for those who like to control things. 
If you continue to talk “about” me in my group I may need to shift  group settings to something else. Talking “to me” & “about me” are distinct. The latter is still gossip even though I can read it.

Mark de LA says
for me aug is the the standard abbreviation for August. 

Seth says
i do believe that i have diligently defined my use of the word “aug” in the tag room, aug … and specifically in aug.

ask yourself how mathematics would have developed had defining new terms was not allowed. 

Mark de LA says
maybe so null

Si says
Humm … a move is a move, go figure!  

Si says
Fork is still there. A fork is a fork and does what forks do, i.e. makes a copy of the old for continuation elsewhere. In addition, our forks put an automatic pointer reference to the new fork and an about reference back to the original.

Perhaps the terminology is a bit out of sync with the norm for a move. I will consult the ruins on it.

Mark de LA says

Si says
For now the wording is changed to “move clipboard content here”. In the future, when there may be a copy available as well, then the wording might change.

I say “may” because a copy might not really be needed in this context. I am having trouble thinking of a time when it is all that useful to copy a comment without just forking it which does a better job of what is actually needed in this context.

A copy may be useful in another context, which could be to copy a whole thought and/or it’s comments. We’ll see … more to watch how people use what is there before SeriTD can grock the next.  

Si says
p.s. @seth and @mark,

Now there there is a clipboard, you can also use it as a second way to keep track of a spot for temporary reference.

Just put anything you can on the clipboard and then use the clipboard icon in the navigation bar to get back to it.  

Seth says

Si says
See the comment: link there in blue? Just click on it and go to it. Your simply using the clipboard as a way to get to something.
