i wonder if it will come back, do they have like town
council meetings under the floor, and pass along primitive
messages with their antenna , "no food found in sector A"
for example, he is probably walking around in that Brownian
motion way that simple animals do, thinking i must come back
in that large space and cheek for dandruff when that giant
homunculus isnt looking down at me

not sure about these creatures. was he near a outer door or
open window or vent?

maybe get a glass ready and beer mat and take him outside?

i have to do this with spiders spiders are easy to catch
in a glass tho.

Oh yeah i always take care not to tread on them or anything,
if i see him again, i'll pop him in an upturned glass, and
stick him outside, i think he came through a gap under the
window, we had new windows put in a while ago and they didnt
do a good job of fixing the masonry for them, so its
probably a bit of a woodlouse highway, when i go to sleep
they all come in and have a bit of a party probably, cos its
nice an warm

Points: 25190 Status: Addict



^ yes, they are really beautiful when you see them u close,
well some of them, iridescent carapaces, really interesting
complex behavior, emerging from relatively simplistic
rules the follow,

woodlouse mind "yeah thats right, turn right once, taste for
wood, if i cant taste wood, move forward 5 body lengths,
then turn right again until i meet an edge, then turn 90
degrees left, if detect a shadow curl into small ball"

^ its the instinct we have from the most fundamental part of
the brain

feel something on your skin you just react without thinking
consciously about it, like when you burn your hand on an
oven

i dont know for sure but i guess thats how most brains of
insects function, simple input and output signals, i doubt
they mull about weather they should go out on a windy day
too much cos they dont like the look of an overcast sky,
would be interesting if they did though1

whole generations of infinitesimally small crustacean like
creatues live, die and reproduce in the tiny pores on the
end of your nose, and when you get a blackhead thats their
accumulated poo and corpses that is

yes docs always show us hunting behaviors, i was thinking to
something that explains what you was talking about, movement
behaviours, relations to weather and stuff

you could probably find the samples of the speak spell
around on the net and have a play around with the control
rates and stuff on supercollider to get an approximate
sound, i reckon it wouldnt be too hard to do


 

offline freqy on 2016-03-21 19:45 [#02493566]
Points: 18724 Status: Regular | Show recordbag



and then play the sound back out through the speaker on the
speak n spell just for the fun plastic case, naf speaker
effect.
