Example video re: first thoughts on a mechanical language

I assume videos like this were more common back when people didn’t think mechanical knowledge was the province of earthy shamans and pure-bred Nordic instincts. It’s actually just inputs and outputs that can be explained in a linear, logical fashion.

Original essay is here: https://aeolipera.wordpress.com/2020/06/27/first-thoughts-on-a-universal-mechanical-language-or-an-introduction-to-machines-for-the-conceptually-inclined-lady-or-gentleman/

That essay may not be my most groundbreaking work, but it’s the one I’m most proud of strictly as a writer because it makes a difficult technical idea simple and engaging, which I consider the acme of writing skill.

Oh, and H/T Banned Hipster again.

    “I assume videos like this were more common back when people didn’t think mechanical knowledge was the province of earthy shamans and pure-bred Nordic instincts. It’s actually just inputs and outputs that can be explained in a linear, logical fashion.” but thats what normal people actually accept, mechanical levers, whereas microchips and modern computing is offworld demon technology from space hence the microchip shortage (they ran out of the alien supply) with itz appliance streamed straight into the soul from demons living in psychadelics… grey aliens are basically so weak and effiminate they stopped resembling anything now look at modern people and compare that to technology and people from the 1800’s and early 1900s…

    itz unironically sort of true that demons live in electricity when you think about it and steam powered industrial technology kills them off and turn men ultra masculine…not saying Roswell is real but itz real in terms of whats happening….

    tldr: nobody will argue against the industrial revolution being “fake”, some won’t compute building a microchip without a microchip, coding a computer without a computer etc etc thats where the aliens and demons stuff comes into play basically its not the jews this time itz satan

      what i’m saying is…china being 5000 years old egypt 7000 ancient greece and rome wuzza been some times ago too…why could they only produce certain parts of and not complete the whole industrial revolution-sequence?!?!I mean thats not a tall order steam coal iron copper levers pipes etc etc…nobody be asking them to do microchips so why didn’t it happen?!?

      so you see, women that do html calling themselves coders whereas the humble 200IQ schizo programmer loudly and often humbly proclaims that he himself could not actually build the parts to a computer á la Primitive Technology style.

      the plot thickens and you got some explaining to do or I’m shouting “heretic”, itz just like the devils in heroes of might and magic series are actually space aliens…you need to repent by explaining this, itz fine if we are talking about a 10 000 year evolution period but itz still “wrong” considering the last 150-100 year jump in technology…

      tldr; go chop up the parts you need for a computer in the forests/mountains build it code it or I don’t believe it, this all makes sense because the ancients were too dumb to capitalize on steam engines because apparently they were too dumb to build them despite;

    Here’s another one:
    Spinning Levers – How A Transmission Works (1936)

    And i agree with the commenter under the video who said: “I wonder if these guys knew in 1936 that over the next 100 years, no one would beat them in their explanation of how a manual transmission works.”
