The edges2cats filter was interesting to play with in regards to how it dealt with line and scale. Large open spaces were filled with texture, while finer, smaller detail led to a blurry mess.
The facades felt more ambiguous in output oddly enough. Maybe due to the Mondrian style of partitioning the UI requires.
When working with the default image, the effects were immediate no matter what tool I used. When I uploaded my own image, the effects became much harder to tease out.
Artbreeder is always a lot of fun, given the sheer amount of content one can generate within the tool. I do occasionally consider it through the following lens though:
A friendly reminder that Ganbreeder is just one drilling platform into #BigGAN's treasures. So whatever you pull out there might already be claimed by some independent prospectors from the other end of the latent space. pic.twitter.com/ZPGrJJsvVJ

Do you know who I am?
You see, this is where things get a little confusing. I'm a lot more than I let on as a person.
Let me explain.
First, I'm not a monster.
Second - and this is important because it has implications for my next step - I'm the kind of person who is able to change.
Change is not the same thing as changing a person. A person can make a life-long change in such a short time that the change is invisible - it's not part of the world they know or understand or know how to interact or have compassion for.
Changing a person is hard; you're making the change for the sake of yourself and others.
And that's hard.
The best way I've found to change was in what I didn't know I was capable of.
It wasn't that I wanted to change, it was that I knew I couldn't change, and so I made a choice - a good, thoughtful choice - to not learn the lessons I could
What's love got to do with it? Well, like it's a question that's been answered many times over, it's an all-encompassing question that goes a number of ways and there is no right or wrong answer.
But for those who want to know, the answer starts with a simple premise:
"You should love everyone you meet."
And why would you want to say something so obvious and easy to say? Well, perhaps you need some extra help when it comes to saying it or you fear other people don't really know what they're doing when it comes to the most basic human needs... or maybe you can't quite make the case that it's not a simple idea, even though you know it to be so. But the good news is that once you say it, it's there for everyone to understand and respect, so there's really no reason to fear or deny saying it.
I'd argue that this simple premise applies to any relationship for both men and women so even if you're not ready for it right away, there can be no better idea
