    1. RemNote is the first spaced-repetition powered note-taking tool that lets you structure knowledge exactly in the way you think about it.

      [[Reinforcement Learning] as a first-class citizen with knowledge.

    1. For a period of four or five years, I used the qwerty layout at work (on a shared DOS computer), and the Dvorak layout at home, spending about half of my typing time on each. During that time, my Dvorak speed increased to 90 wpm, and my qwerty speed reached 80 wpm. My accuracy improved slightly on both layouts. On the Dvorak layout, my most common typos are reversing two letters, whereas on the qwerty layout, it's more common for me to hit the wrong key altogether.

      Author's [[Dvorak]] personal experinece, reports something similar to the results he found earlier on.

    2. In the mid 1950s, U.S. Government's General Services Administration commissioned a study by Earle Strong to confirm Dvorak's results. Strong's study, which included proper controls and which was set up to allow direct comparison of qwerty and Dvorak data, found that after sufficient training, Dvorak typists were able to match their previous qwerty speeds, but not surpass them.

      Study results that attempted to verify Navy's experiment results from 1944.

    3. U.S. Navy selected fourteen typists for a 1944 study to assess whether Dvorak retraining would be feasible. Dvorak found that it took an average of only 52 hours of training for those typists' speeds on the Dvorak keyboard to reach their average speeds on the qwerty keyboard. By the end of the study their Dvorak speeds were 74 percent faster than their qwerty speeds, and their accuracies had increased by 68 percent.

      Subsequent investigation showed that these experiments performed by the Navy were biased.


    1. The Global Consciousness Project, started by the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab at Princeton University and currently funded by the Institute of Noetic Sciences hypothesizes the existence of this global field of consciousness which can be analyzed through structural patterns in quantum random number data generated at the time of novel world-impacting events.

    2. Pronounced “no-uh-sfeer”, the noosphere is a hypothesized unifying field of consciousness.

      [[randonauting]] [[noosphere]] [[field of consciousness]]

    3. The talking walls effect is the phenomenon characterized by the noticing of information or objects in your environment that appears to correlate to your personal internal thoughts and beliefs.

      [[randonauting]] [[talking walls effect]] an interesting effect that could be linked to [[confirmation bias]] and pre-disposition... or maybe not.

    4. void meme is the attempt of your own mind to draw assumptions from your imagination about the potential reality tunnels existing outside of the stasis field and within the genesis field. A void meme could be described as a conscious or subconscious reaction to the non-deterministic potential reality tunnels that may be entered into often characterized by a motivation to pursue the unknown in an attempt to gain holistic knowledge or understanding about said unknown.

      [[randonauting]] [[void meme]] your own mind attempting to keep you wihtin your stasis field.

    5. A reality tunnel in the context of the fatum project is a term used to describe any particular “path” or “branch” of experience that one is currently within or may enter into. Reality tunnels are like trees branching off into different life experiences, where at each point in time that you make a decision, you branch off into a new reality tunnel consisting of the implications of that decision.

      [[randonauting]] [[reality tunnel]] branches into life experiences.

    6. The genesis field, similar in some ways to the stasis field, consists of all of the potential branches of experience that can emerge outside of the stasis field. In other words, it is the field of potential that one may experience when outside of their usual causally predictable pattern of living.

      [[randonauting]] [[genesis field]] It can also be described as the interaction of human thoughts with fluctuations in the quantum zero-point vacuum, and the potential non-deterministic experiences that can arise from those interactions.

    7. the stasis field is the entire set of causal relationships that limits the variability of potential outcomes of an experience.

      [[stasis field]] basically the "way how things are" for you currently.

    8. The study of metetics dives deeply into memes, and can be read about in more detail in the Theory of Memetic Engineering.

    9. A meme (not the gen-z internet meme type, although that type of meme is helpful in understanding the general definition of a meme) is a unit of information in consciousness that is distributed to another consciousness, often times arriving in large quantities of other consciousnesses due to their viral nature.

      [[randonauting]] [[meme]] - a unit.

    10. Another odd experience reported by many randonauts is the discovery of objects or “artifacts” that were thought about before generating the location.

      A possible form of [[confirmation bias]] for [[randonauting]]

    11. It’s unclear why exactly these experiences are so common. There are several ideas regarding what it could be. One is that the synchronicities experienced on randonaut trips can be explained as coincidences that arise as a result of a confirmation bias.

      Someo of these experiences could be explained with: [[confirmation bias]]

    12. In the thousands of reports submitted to the randonauts subreddit and other areas around the internet, users have reported numerous synchronicities, often times having some deeply personal significance.

      [[Quantum Point]] [[Synchronicity]]

    13. Z-score: This is a mean that is used to compare the improbability of voids and attractors in a way where they can be compared to each other. Voids will always have a negative z-score while attractors will have a positive one.

      [[Quantum Point]] [[Z-score]]

    14. Power: The power is the ratio between the density of the quantum point distribution within the area of the attractor/void and the density of the quantum point field as a whole. Only attractors and voids will have a power. Basically, it’s a way to gauge how dense the clustering of points making up the attractor/void is, or how “out of the ordinary” an attractor/void is.

      [[Quantum Point]] [[Power]] density of the quantum point distribution.

    15. Radius: The radius(in meters) is the radius around your current location that a point can be generated within. This can be customized with the command “/setradius 1000”, for example, which would set the radius to 1,000 meters.

      [[Quantum Point]] [[Radius]]

    16. Type: This is the type of point generated. Types include pseudo(single pseudo-random point), quantum(single quantum random point), attractor(dense cluster of quantum points), and void(low density cluster of quantum points).

    17. Chains are when you generate a point, visit the location, reset your current location to that point, then generate another point to visit.

      [[Chains]], location visitting one after the other.

    18. Attractor: A location of high density Quantum Point distribution. This is found by creating thousands of Quantum Points and then determining an area where the density of those Quantum Points are higher in relation to the uniform distribution of the points. The telegram bot command to generate an attractor is “/getattractor”.

      [[Attractor]] the opposite of [[Void]]

    19. Void: Essentially the opposite of an attractor, a Void is a location of low density Quantum Point distribution in relation to the uniform distribution of the Quantum Point field. To generate a void, use the command “/getvoid”.

      Density based, the opposite of [[Attractor]]

    20. These truly random numbers are then converted into a coordinate location somewhere in your vicinity. The telegram bot command to generate this point type is “/getquantum”

      Conversion from the [[Quantum Random Number Generator|qRNG]] to coordinates is interesting in on itself.

    21. Quantum Point: A single coordinate point generated using a quantum random number generator (qRNG).

    22. The Fatum Project is still very much in its early stages of development, and there is lots to be done to further understand what exactly it is that the community is grappling with, if anything at all.

      This is a key point to understand. It might help, it might not. But I personally tend to lean twoards believing it does.

    23. For a lot of people they show up as locations near them that they never knew existed before despite passing them often in their daily routines.

      Getting out of your routine by getting random coordinates is interesting. What could not happen before, might happen now.

    24. Behind the scenes there are countless questions to be asked about the fundamental inner workings of this process and its implications towards our understanding of reality.

      This is one of the big points of [[Randonaouts]], the whole point of it is finding [[Synchronicities]]

    25. Randonauting is the utilization of random number generation techniques as a tool towards exploring and navigating the world around us.


    26. the act of generating random numbers with random number generation techniques (RNG), converting those numbers into coordinates on the surface of the earth, and then visiting the location in real life.

      [[Randonauting]] in a nutshell.

    27. Interesting article with a qucik introduction to the terms and methods.

    28. Understanding Quantum Point Information

    29. Shown below is a graph visualizing each of these point types. The graph shows a 20,000 x 20,000 meter area with a field of 1,000 randomly generated points. The darker blue areas are Attractors, and the lighter green areas are Voids. Each black dot is a Quantum Point. As you can see, there can be multiple attractors and voids of differing power, depending on relative density.
