"Philosophy program nixes universal puzzle of prognostication"
(computing the souls of literature)
Or, link directly ignoring the Tweet: Ancient Book Design Program
Heck, I'll just re-post all the original content here:
SECRET BOOKS FORMULA
Soul of the book =
If you [X] qualifier [subject] [opp X]
Title of book =
Usually: [quality of X] [opp qualifier]
For perusal, or quick use: [opp qualifier] [quality of X]
The easiest way to use the formula is to generate original souls and then find the corresponding titles by finding the most essential, knowledgeable quality of X and then finding the opposite of the qualifier introduced in the soul of the book.
Together with the soul the title provides a basic index of the value of any text, and permits exponentially efficient reading.
Soul = 'If you die early enough you live'.
Title of book = 'Bad Archaic'
Bad [= qual. of die] Archaic [=opp of early]
Another example chosen more arbitrarily,
Soul = 'If you live surely truth may die'
Title of book = 'Optimal Uncertainty'
Optimal [=qual. of live] Uncertainty [= opp of surely]
