    There isn't the slightest bit of historical background or a cultural heritage to this room. It is merely a pigsty decorated by a luxurious appearance.
    maybe you shouldn't have booked a room in a fucking chain hotel, then

    Honestly I've come to despise that "folk-style feeling." To me, it truly comes across as "man wasn't it better when you were fucking poor so I could enjoy being a tourist and enjoy your poverty?"

    People like that strike me as the kind of people who probably were sad that Kawloon city, or whatever that walled off place in Hong Kong was called, is now gone.

    The kind of people who are just transient and tourists.

    Like Kayneth is a poverty tourist type.

    Kowloon. I thought it was Chinese though?
    I think it goes: "I don't trust people like me." no, that's not it

    I mean yeah, he's racist, it's just interesting (to me) to think about the reasoning behind it, since there are multiple possibilities and all of them can be true at once.

    Like I don't even think "it's a metaphor for magecraft" is that silly of a possibility. Given how much of early western
    magecraft
    philosophy
    worked, I think western magi probably think in metaphor/code a lot. That might just be me wilding out, but it's fun.

    Kayneth's assessment -which is a classic kind of criticism of modern levelling/homogenisation/technology/industrialisation which hovers somewhere in the space between vlkisch, William Morris, Tolstoyan, Lebensphilosophie ideas - would have been both normal and unremarkable among most conservative landed aristocrats (especially in countries where the ancien regime persisted) in Europe from about 1850-1945. One could imagine a far more verbose working-out of this idea somewhere in Musil's The Man Without Qualities. Urobuchi was being pretty sensible. Certainly it is a more sensible characterisation than with most other magi we've seen since Zero.

    I don't recall quite exactly- was William Morris a mechanist?

    William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was a British textile designer, poet, artist,[1] fantasy writer, and socialist activist associated with the British Arts and Crafts movement. He was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production. His literary contributions helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, while he helped win acceptance of socialism in fin de sicle Great Britain.

    Yes, and his main criticism of the industrial revolution was medieval in nature; or at the very least founded by a ghost of such aspirations. Medieval Europe is by definition mechanistic, as I believe many of his views could be interpreted as. His reinterpretation of Nature upon the machine is a mechanism, or at least I would argue. So, could he be interpreted as such?

    That would be a quite unusual interpretation of William Morris.

    It to mirror Gil's take.

    This isn't really a thought, but I just got this video recommended and I had to share it somewhere.

    It's a review of FSR by an elderly lady, in which she shows her saber figmas. Also apparently she 100% Hollow Ataraxia without any translation patch, it's crazy
