Dubstep and algorithmic information theory

I think this vi­su­al­iza­tion by YouTube en­tity dub­zophre­nia is a de­cent in­tro­duc­tion to some in­tu­itions driv­ing al­gorith­mic in­for­ma­tion the­ory, at least for peo­ple who like dub­step:


(Please watch in 720p; au­dio qual­ity is also higher. Ful­lscreen­ing it is also kind of nec­es­sary.)

At least I no­tice that this is how I tend to think about things like statis­ti­cal me­chan­ics, quan­tum in­for­ma­tion the­ory, that kinda thing, in­so­far as I think about them rather than just read lots of ab­stracts and pre­tend like that counts. I sus­pect that lik­ing dub­step is cor­re­lated with schizo­ty­pal­ity is cor­re­lated with hav­ing your pro­ce­du­ral learn­ing set up such that watch­ing videos like this ac­tu­ally im­proves your math in­tu­itions (de­pend­ing on the type of math I think; stat mech more than lin­ear alge­bra). But that’s a lot of spec­u­la­tion. Upvote or down­vote as you in­tuit.

As a side note, I now have a tum­blr blog at least half about ra­tio­nal­ity and elec­tronic mu­sic at willnew­some.com. I’d like it if more peo­ple pro­moted them­selves and their blogs via one-off LW dis­cus­sion posts ev­ery few months or so even if they’re not di­rectly ra­tio­nal­ity-re­lated. I fear I’m miss­ing out on some in­ter­est­ing stuff due to silly so­cial dy­nam­ics re­sult­ing from po­ten­tially-mal­adap­tive psy­chol­ogy.
