"Obscurantism City."Man versus machine 2019

Post by Father » Thu Oct 03, 2019 1:13 am

"Obscurantism City."

Once upon a time, from a city where there was a bright sun; strangely in this city all the people walked with one arm raised and the palm of the open hand shouting loudly: "There is no light, everything is dark." In that city there was a madman, who enjoyed the star sun, and very early in the morning he came out on top of a mountain to receive the vital energy. Everyone said he was crazy for not having his hand raised with his palm open and because instead of shouting loudly, "the sun does not exist, everything is dark," when he rises and sees the first rays of sun rise in the dawn, that madman It stretched on the floor and with his thoughts and words in low volume, he said: "Thank God for one more day, thank you for the star sun."

The name of that small city was, "obscurantism" and its asylum was called, "the sun star." That madman finally found a good friend at the top of the mountain who told the madman: "In the city of obscurantism always remember, good is called evil, evil is called good, the evidence is called lie, defeat is called victory, and victory is called defeat. Don't suffer brother, enjoy the star sun that gives you the vital energy.

I am thinking chess is in a coin.Human beings for ever playing in one face.Now I am playing in the other face:"Antichess". Computers are as a fortres where owner forgot to close a little door behind. You must enter across this door.Forget the front.

But he promised me the increment game, and now he's just ignoring me. I don't think it's possible he can produce the game at all, so it'd be nice if Father admitted it.
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

"Be patient brother, be patient ..." said that friend to the crazy old man." "What do you mean wise man," the madman replied. "Look, I recommend that you go on a cybernetic path to China, and tell the man who has the blue fish computer, that he allows you to face his insoluble hardware that calculates 157,500,000 plays per second. In this city of crazy people, it will seem ridiculous to you that your crazy old man neutralizes the power and strength of the bluefish machine." In the meantime let's drink some crystal clear water from the deep oceanic blue.
Let's offer old friend, let's toast, for your games, and please don't read the lies of the media that express in their lines: "The chess machines are invincible." You could go crazy like everyone who believes such a lie, have fun and play as much as you can.
It is true. Recall the poet Leon de Greift: "I play my life, change my life, I still lose it,"

[Event "Rated game, 5 min"]
That's still without increment, why do you keep ignoring me even though you're quoting me? Do you speak Spanish? Let's try this:

Hay una cosa que se llama "incremento", que son los segundos que se le añade al reloj de un jugador cada que hace una jugada. Lo que te estoy pidiendo es un juego donde derrotes a la maquina en un partido con incremento (digamos, 5 segundos), pero sigues mandando juegos sin esto...
