We’re watching Star Trek Discovery (only halfway through Series One - no spoilers) and one of the things I am very much enjoying is the call-backs, not only to Star Trek, although I love those, but to other things as well. Case in point, in Episode 9, ‘Into the Forest I Go’, Lt Stamets (Anthony Rapp) tells Dr Culber (Wilson Cruz) that he’ll go to see ‘La Boheme’ with him. That was awesome.

Beneath them the ground is white
I move a few steps
Weird and wonderful: robot saints in the Middle Ages.

Way back on Jan 23, @AspiringLuddite wrote a toot about manuscript fragments used in bindings of early print books. Here's another example: this one of an Irish translation (probably via Latin) of an Arabic work:
So, not only the coolness of finding an old manuscript, but also an example of how much knowledge travelled across the world. "All cultures were isolated from each other" Nope.
<< During a talk at SXSW, an audience member asked Ocasio-Cortez about the threat of automated labor. “We should not be haunted by the specter of being automated out of work,” she said in response. “We should be excited by that. But the reason we’re not excited by it is because we live in a society where if you don’t have a job, you are left to die. And that is, at its core, our problem.” >>
I've launched a roleplaying game Patreon, to develop and publish my Dynamic Balances game engine and game worlds for it. The starting world is early medieval, low magic, neopagan, with queer content built in from the inception. #rpg #patreon #games #gaming #ttrpg

Medievalists and Medieval-adjacent. Sort-of.
