Twilight is the anti-Buddha. And a Sith. · 7:41am May 19th, 2017

In learning about attachment, in cultivating and exploring its properties, in investing herself in magic to the extent that it harms others, she has permanently attached herself to the world.

Chrysalis, meanwhile, eschews attachment, using it for her own ends. (Not that she's at all Buddhist: violent, selfish, cares not for other species…)

The Sith Code:
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.

Points of Canon à la Oliver: S1E09 ❧"Bridle Gossip" · 6:15pm May 14th, 2017

I watched it so I could post intelligently, but I'm wanting to get my thoughts down before I have to actually try reading my scrawlings to know them. So I'm stealing a march and beating Oliver to the punch, though he's got his own entry for s1e9 now. Discussion will probably be more active there.

I'm bringing the biggun out front:

The Spellbook Problem · 9:57am May 12th, 2017

The Spellbook Problem is a subset of the magic-schooling problem. If unicorns are specialists first and foremost¹…how can spellbooks(/teachers) have a language and technique set that is meaningfully enactable by those specialists in not understanding magic?

On saviors of Equestria, alternate · 11:15pm Apr 30th, 2017

For villains other than Nightmare Moon to win in alternate timelines sans the Mane 6 being Elemental Harmonizers…

The idea of millions of possibilities, though? That requires Butterfly (Fluttershy?) Effect results from this being sufficient to divert away from all of the known powerful threats.

Pinkie Pie is worth employing · 2:29pm Apr 23rd, 2017

❧Pinkie creates a lot of business for the Cakes. Early on, at least, many parties were just plain at Sugarcube Corner.
❧Pinkie creates a lot of advertisement and networking for the Cakes. (Rarity aspires to be the pony everypony should know. Pinkie…knows everypony in Ponyville. I expect everyone is on a first-name basis with Pinkie, too, and that's a big influence for business.)

Pronoun troubles and inventing more of them · 7:30am Jan 10th, 2017

To branch off a musing on Lavender Unicorn Syndrome,

Another solution is conlang, inventing pronouns per race-sex combo. I haven't seen it, but with the historic and present xenophobia in ponies, along with the way it's built into the language (nopony, anypony, somepony) it doesn't feel unthinkable… just hard to read.

I had an inkling of why, perhaps, the naming is uneven between the Two Sisters, which I believe I shall use henceforth.
