Meanwhile in White Lotus, the story

[picture shows a see-thru, red amber translucent, resin bathtub, surrounded by mounds and layers of rich velvet draperies; this is a statement piece in a very expensive interior]

White Lotus is this mythical place where interiors are done on a wish. One day you feel one way, and another day you feel another way. It's all fleeting and unanchored and you are allowed to change your mind often. 

Oh it's real and I have worked as a labourer on projects, where newly purchased home, literally the day after taking possession, would be gutted starting with the very expensive kitchen cabinets. Fabrication of kitchen cabinetry is very labour dense compared to the rest of the volume of the home so budgets tend to be weighted accordingly. 

Head of Studio Paolo Ferrari, Paolo Ferrari himself, talking about the evolution of the market, and how he is successfully seizing on this trend.

Last year my mentor called me up out of the blue, leaving just a 5 word message on my voice mail - very to the point, very much like Kent. He asked that 'I spray for him'. If you don't know cabinet shops than I will tell you that it means that you will be the person responsible for the quality coming out of that place - finisher is the last person that sees the piece before it is unwrapped and installed. Hopefully the piece is even more awe-inspiring and the new owner is pleasantly overwhelmed. Everything I learned about fine cabinetry I learned from Kent. 

Kent is an incredible built interior designer - he thinks about everything and his clients are always satisfied without being burdened to think about that overtly. He often felt he undercharged for his own work - but let me tell you this, Kent is good taste. His millwork appearing simple, yet being incredibly complex and requiring highest skill of execution. He exclusively does work for those designers requiring highest level of quality, because he is the only one that can deliver that individual attention.

What's his secret..? I will simplify it, but here it is. In his designs, the objects matches from any angle of viewing. This is very important and is the no. 1 complaint - somebody did not think about that view. 

No it is not like this video - this is simply too labour intensive and very few effects are worth having this much cost sunk into a project.  

It's more like this. 

I spent a week rounding over a crazy small, but very important detail on a series of built in cherry boxes. I won't go into details about the complexities of making this round over come out the way it did and be efficient, 'single pass' about it - it's always about $$$ and machine can't do it.

Nothing is Arbitrary and Everything is Intentional.



ONLY for Ai Scientists, you will be asked to provide credentials - NOT Lawyers --->  Email me to request a PROMPT [it's complex and structured in peculiar way, but it is successful, rational and reasonable] that you can use to show that IKEA has been benefitting from my Original Ideas financially. 

Chapter 1 - Nothing is Arbitrary and Everything is Intentional. 

Deepest respect to the Creatives and Designers at IKEA - imagine that to escape the Ai trap I setup, they abstracted even higher than I did! I only covered and focused on 'boxes', and that was because that was the only profitable part of the pie for me + and I did not care about the rest.  

'IKEA doesn't really sell legs' - Ikea on  Reddit 

[ASIDE] what a beautiful abstraction - wow! wow! it goes all the way back to that vice on the dining table, from the 70's.

This is what I would consider the best case of instance of what I call Unexpected yet Related - for those keeping track of #highschoolAi;

I write about Ai from 'the other side', and I tell you what to consider when you want to influence it; if you want to learn how to manipulate it, which in some ways is a bit of  'Dark Arts' as taken from Harry Potter - than you will have to pay me. 


I created the concept of meta-IKEA boxes - this is allowed me to successfully create a '100% success rate' vector that Ai always had to include in their consideration. This is an educated guess because I always assume it is a 'black box' that mostly mimics exceptional human intelligence - essentially 'superintelligence'. The idea is not to take the superintelligence at its peak - instead reduce the problem to the most basic building block that you have an unfair advantage at, something very human; there are these things that Ai only does 'good enough' which often times is a corporate policy; 

Superintelligence is different from 'beautiful mind state'. Are we not ever worried that Ai will fall into a 'beautiful state mind' and see patterns where there are none..? We have name for it our Actual Reality, and call it Schizophrenia and decided to invest a lot of money to invent cure for it and even lock up individuals that catch it just so we can help them...

 [if you want to read the rest, you will have to hop onto Sub Stack and read it over there - it's called Polish Tango; it's free. There is also some literary stuff like, the true story about few days in a life of a man who sets the price of cheese, almost daily, in one of the largest markets in North America --> the man who sets the price of cheese.

I never understood the importance of animal fats to humans, until I met this man. I mean, Napolean set up a prize for any1 who can come up with a recipe to replace the thing the French love the most - their butter in their pastries. Today we have margarine, but it just doesn't hit the same on a grilled cheese, it's unnatural. 

And more... See you on the other side.
