"I skim them," I protested.
"Well, if you skimmed them more carefully you would know that prolonged exposure to stealth mode may lead to side effects."
"I can handle ... "
"Impotence." HARV smiled.
"Oh," I said.
"Randy hasn't really tested it on humans. It's extra tough to get volunteers for those types of experiments," HARV said. "Though he has computer simulated it and the results tend to support this conclusion."
"Let's try to limit our use of stealth mode from now on," I said. — John Zakour

Simulated Sayings By Oliver Sacks: Thus the feeling I sometimes have - which all of us who work closely with Thus the feeling I sometimes have - which all of us who work closely with aphasiacs have - that one cannot lie to an aphasiac. He cannot grasp your words, and cannot be deceived by them; but what he grasps he grasps with infallible precision, namely the expression that goes with the words, the total, spontaneous, involuntary expressiveness which can never be simulated or faked, as words alone can, too easily. — Oliver Sacks

Simulated Sayings By Elie Wiesel: A Jew who converted, who simulated, was, at least in some periods, safe. Hitler in A Jew who converted, who simulated, was, at least in some periods, safe. Hitler in the beginning did not want to kill all the Jews but he wanted us to have a Germany free of Jews. If America had allowed Jews to come in, the British had accepted Jews from Palestine, they were safe. — Elie Wiesel

Just put the whole We simulated the predator with livestock and the perennial grassland returned. Just put the whole back, and there it was. You'll find the scientific method never discovers anything. Observant, creative people make discoveries. But the scientific method protects us from cranks like me. — Allan Savory

Simulated Sayings By J.W. Lord: I find that daydreams are oftentimes similar in this respect to real dreams, the kind I find that daydreams are oftentimes similar in this respect to real dreams, the kind we experience in an unconscious state. Our mind puts together scenic imagery and simulated interactions in a seemingly designless, irregular, and often circuitous manner. We may think the substance of the dream is simply an agglomeration of thoughts, ideas, and experiences, but in truth, it may be pulling inspiration from somewhere deep down within. It may be the result of some unfulfilled desire, or possibly the expression of some dark hidden fear (like spiders or clowns). — J.W. Lord

Simulated Sayings By Dorothee Solle: There is no wrong suffering. There is imaginary, sham, feigned, simulated, pretended suffering. But the There is no wrong suffering. There is imaginary, sham, feigned, simulated, pretended suffering. But the assertion that someone suffers for the right or wrong reason presupposes a divine, all-penetrating judgment able to distinguish historically obsolete forms of suffering from those in our time, instead of leaving this decision to the sufferers themselves. — Dorothee Solle

Simulated Sayings By Steve Martin: Scientists at first were skeptical that a kitten-type being could exist in the rare Martian Scientists at first were skeptical that a kitten-type being could exist in the rare Martian atmosphere. As a test, two Earth kittens were put in a chamber that simulated the Martian air. The diary of this experiment is fascinating:
6:00 A.M.: Kittens appear to sleep.
7:02 A.M.: Kitten wakes, darts from one end of cage to another for no apparent reason.
7:14 A.M.: Kitten runs up wall of cage, leaps onto other kitten for no apparent reason.
7:22 A.M.: Kitten lies on back and punches other kitten for no apparent reason.
7:30 A.M.: Kitten leaps, stops, darts left, abruptly stops, climbs wall, clings for two seconds, falls on head, darts right for no apparent reason.
7:51 A.M.: Kitten parses first sentence of daily newspaper that is at bottom of chamber.
With the exception of the parsing, all behavior is typical of Earth kitten behavior. The parsing activity, which was done with a small ball-point pen, was an anomaly. — Steve Martin

Simulated Sayings By Steve Almond: What does it mean that the most popular and unifying form of entertainment in America What does it mean that the most popular and unifying form of entertainment in America circa 2014 features giant muscled men, mostly African-American, engaged in a sport that causes many of them to suffer brain damage? What does it mean that our society has transmuted the intuitive physical joys of childhood - run, leap, throw, tackle - into a corporatized form of simulated combat? That a collision sport has become the leading signifier of our institutions of higher learning, and the undisputed champ of our colossal Athletic Industrial Complex? — Steve Almond

a simulated existence, not a genuine existence. Everything about you, everything you are, has always been pretense, never genuine, never real. — Thomas Bernhard

Simulated Sayings By Pat Conroy: I thought that I must always search for the remarkable combinations, add unknowns, mix things I thought that I must always search for the remarkable combinations, add unknowns, mix things that were clearly marked with things beyond marking. I would leave the simulated test and enter into forbidden territory. I would look for that moment when I would begin to pour alone and in wonder. I would always try to seize that moment and to accept its challenge. I wanted to become the seeker, the aroused and passionate explorer, and it was better to go at it knowing nothing at all, always choosing the unmarked bottle, always choosing your own unproven method, armed with nothing faith and a belief in astonishment. And if by accident, I could make a volcano in a single test tube, then what could I do with all the strange magnificent elements of the world with its infinity of unknowns, with the swarm of man, with civilization, with language? — Pat Conroy

Accordingly, there is Henceforward there is no longer anything absolutely foreign. Everything is within reach. Accordingly, there is no longer anything exclusively 'own' either. Authenticity has become folklore, it is ownness simulated for others - to whom the indigene himself belongs. — Wolfgang Welsch

Simulated Sayings By Milan Kundera: Youth is terrible: it is a stage trod by children in buskins and a variety Youth is terrible: it is a stage trod by children in buskins and a variety of costumes mouthing speeches they've memorized and fanatically believe but only half understand. And history is terrible because it so often ends up a playground for the immature; a playground for the young Nero, a playground for the young Bonaparte, a playground for the easily roused mobs of children whose simulated passions and simplistic poses suddenly metamorphose into a catastrophically real reality. — Milan Kundera

Simulated Sayings By B.F. Skinner: The simulated approval and affection with which parents and teachers are often urged to solve The simulated approval and affection with which parents and teachers are often urged to solve behavior problems are counterfeit. So are flattery, backslap-ping, and many other ways of winning friends. — B.F. Skinner
Simulated Sayings By Jean Baudrillard: A hyperreal henceforth sheltered from the imaginary, and from any distinction between the real and A hyperreal henceforth sheltered from the imaginary, and from any distinction between the real and the imaginary, leaving room only for the orbital recurrence of models and for the simulated generation of differences. — Jean Baudrillard
Simulated Sayings By Mark Steyn: Far from being tortured, the prisoners [at Guantanamo] are being handled literally with kid gloves Far from being tortured, the prisoners [at Guantanamo] are being handled literally with kid gloves (or simulated kid-effect gloves). The U.S. military hands each jihadist his complimentary copy of the Koran as delicately as white-gloved butlers bringing His Lordship the Times of London. It's not just unbecoming to buy in to Muslim psychoses; in the end, it's self-defeating. And our self-defeat is their surest shot at victory...Even a loser can win when he's up against a defeatist. A big chunk of Western Civilization, consciously or otherwise, has given the impression that it's dying to surrender to somebody, anybody. Reasonably enough, the jihadists figure: hey, why not us? — Mark Steyn
Simulated Sayings By Stuart Gibbs: Apparently, it was common for children to participate in the Civil War, and thus, lots Apparently, it was common for children to participate in the Civil War, and thus, lots of fathers had brought their sons along for a fun family weekend of simulated violence and bloodshed. — Stuart Gibbs
Simulated Sayings By Ben Macintyre: As the real army plowed through the waves toward Normandy, two more fake convoys were As the real army plowed through the waves toward Normandy, two more fake convoys were scientifically simulated heading for the Seine and Boulogne by dropping from planes a blizzard of tinfoil, code-named "Window," which would show up on German radar as two huge flotillas approaching the French coast. — Ben Macintyre

Simulated Sayings By David Deutsch: The most important application of quantum computing in the future is likely to be a The most important application of quantum computing in the future is likely to be a computer simulation of quantum systems, because that's an application where we know for sure that quantum systems in general cannot be efficiently simulated on a classical computer. — David Deutsch
Simulated Sayings By Andy Grundberg: Computer images, like camera images today, will be seen as representations of a simulated, second-degree Computer images, like camera images today, will be seen as representations of a simulated, second-degree reality with little or no connection to the unmediated world. This is one lesson we can learn from photographs, and especially from those of the last 25 years: images exist not to be believed, but to be interrogated. — Andy Grundberg
Simulated Sayings By Antonio Damasio: Interestingly enough, not all feelings result from the body's reaction to external stimuli. Sometimes changes Interestingly enough, not all feelings result from the body's reaction to external stimuli. Sometimes changes are purely simulated in the brain maps. — Antonio Damasio
Simulated Sayings By Wes Moore: Sophie Bach from The Maker:You're a human being with a personality and a will, and Sophie Bach from The Maker:
You're a human being with a personality and a will, and you make choices and think and create. Is there no meaning to you, Adrien Bach?
And what about us? Is the way we feel about each other just simulated emotions from some biological process - nothing more? — Wes Moore
Simulated Sayings By Greg Egan: A computer model which manipulated data about itself and its "surroundings" in essentially the same A computer model which manipulated data about itself and its "surroundings" in essentially the same way as an organic brain would have to possess essentially the same mental states. "Simulated consciousness" was as oxymoronic as "simulated addition. — Greg Egan

Cadet One stepped gingerly off the silvery boarding plank slanting down out of the saucer. "Good morning Cadet", said an invisible voice from the ceiling. "This is your Basic Proficiency Evaluation in survival on a hostile planet. The particular hostile planet we have simulated today is Earth, third planet of the Sol system. Please do not be alarmed or upset, this is only a test and may be repeated later in your training. We would like you to proceed one hundred metres north of your current position and locate a place called Starbucks. Once there, you are to sit down, use the Earth money in your pocket to acquire a thing called a 'Grande Latte', and await retrieval by your instructors. — Dominic Green
Simulated Sayings By Frank J. Tipler: The first human-to-computer uploads of 2100 will prove that a perfect simulation is the thing The first human-to-computer uploads of 2100 will prove that a perfect simulation is the thing being simulated - that a silicon soul doesn't need a physical body to inhabit. So eventually everybody who ever lived will be resurrected inside a living machine indistinguishable from God. Isn't it amazing what you can do with unlimited hard-disk space? — Frank J. Tipler
Simulated Sayings By Guillaume Faye: The Internet sites (Facebook, Meetic, and thousands of other sites) are based on a virtual The Internet sites (Facebook, Meetic, and thousands of other sites) are based on a virtual and simulated second-hand sex through a screen interface. The first encounter is not natural; it occurs in solitude, in front of a machine interface, and everything else flows from there. Dialogue in front of the screen falsifies and misguides the rest of the relationship, because it suppresses the direct emotion of the first meeting and establishes the relationship on lies, even if these are involuntary. The accident of the first meeting - in a bar, at a party, an office, a friend's house - is replaced by calculated effort in front of a cold screen. Imagination supplants reality. Romanticism or desire are transmitted in computer files. Psychologically, a contact receives a certain bias if it originates from a computer search. If you later happen to meet the person, you understand quickly that she does not correspond to the electronic persona with which one chatted. — Guillaume Faye
Simulated Sayings By Jim Evans: During the final two weeks of training, our students work simulated game situations in which During the final two weeks of training, our students work simulated game situations in which our staff members role-play as players, managers, and coaches. They are given immediate feedback following each camp game. — Jim Evans
Simulated Sayings By David Brin: The dream is so pleasant: to extend a limited sub-portion of yourself into a simulated The dream is so pleasant: to extend a limited sub-portion of yourself into a simulated world and pretend for a while that you are blissfully less. Less than an omniscient being. — David Brin
Simulated Sayings By John Irving: The Winkles were in the business of manufacturing sensations for people who were so removed The Winkles were in the business of manufacturing sensations for people who were so removed from any sensations of their own making or circumstances that only high (but simulated) adventure could provoke response from them at all. Dr. Larch was not impressed with the Winkles' "business"; he knew they were simply rich people who did exactly what they wanted to do and needed to call what they did something more serious-sounding than play. What impressed Larch with the Winkles was that they were deliriously happy. — John Irving
Simulated Sayings By Jean Baudrillard: But what if God himself can be simulated, that is to say can be reduced But what if God himself can be simulated, that is to say can be reduced to signs that constitute faith? Then the whole system becomes weightless, it is no longer anything but a gigantic simulacrum - not unreal, but simulacrum, that is to say never exchanged for the real, but exchanged for itself, in an uninterrupted circuit without reference or circumference. — Jean Baudrillard

Simulated Sayings By Albert Camus: It is essential to consider as a constant point of reference in this essay the It is essential to consider as a constant point of reference in this essay the regular hiatus between what we fancy we know and what we really know, practical assent and simulated ignorance which allows us to live with ideas which, if we truly put them to the test, ought to upset our whole life. — Albert Camus
Simulated Sayings By Albert Bandura: Behavior must also be adequately assessed under appropriate circumstances. Ill-defined global measures of perceived self-efficacy Behavior must also be adequately assessed under appropriate circumstances. Ill-defined global measures of perceived self-efficacy or defective assessments of performance will yield discordances. Disparities will also arise when efficacy is judged for performances in actual situations but performance is measured in simulated situations that are easier to deal with than the actualities — Albert Bandura
Simulated Sayings By Anthony Powell: Such colourless phrases as he achieved were produced with a difficulty, a hesitancy, simulated perhaps, Such colourless phrases as he achieved were produced with a difficulty, a hesitancy, simulated perhaps, but decidedly effective in their unconcealed ineptness. Like most successful men, he had turned this apparent disadvantage into a powerful weapon of offense and defense, in the way that the sledge-hammer impact of his comment left, by its banality, every other speaker at a standstill, giving him as a rule complete mastery of the conversational field. A vast capacity for imposing boredom, a sense of immensely powerful stuffiness, emanated from him, sapping every drop of vitality from weaker spirits.
"So you were at school together," he said slowly. — Anthony Powell
Simulated Sayings By Masamune Shirow: Whether it is a simulated experience or a dream, the information that exists is all Whether it is a simulated experience or a dream, the information that exists is all real ... and an illusion at the same time. — Masamune Shirow

Simulated Sayings By Kahlil Gibran: I have a yearning for my beautiful country, and I love its people because of I have a yearning for my beautiful country, and I love its people because of their misery. But if my people rose, simulated by plunder and motivated by what they call "patriotic spirit" to murder, and invaded my neighbour's country, then upon the committing of any human atrocity I would hate my people and my country. — Kahlil Gibran
Simulated Sayings By William J. Clinton: The more children see of violence, the more numb they are to the deadly consequences The more children see of violence, the more numb they are to the deadly consequences of violence. Now, video games like 'Mortal Kombat,' 'Killer Instinct,' and 'Doom,' the very game played obsessively by the two young men who ended so many lives in Littleton, make our children more active participants in simulated violence. — William J. Clinton
Simulated Sayings By Casey Affleck: I am in the process of starting a nonprofit organization that gives rescued animals a I am in the process of starting a nonprofit organization that gives rescued animals a home in a simulated wild environment and, for those who have been tested on, who are disabled, aggressive, etc., their own space to live out their days. — Casey Affleck

Simulated Sayings By William Irwin: The computer-simulated dreamworld of the Matrix trilogy is a technological version of Descartes's evil demon. The computer-simulated dreamworld of the Matrix trilogy is a technological version of Descartes's evil demon. In essence it represents the idea of a mind (the Architect) more powerful than our own that is intent on deceiving us whenever, and however, it sees fit. — William Irwin
Simulated Sayings By Josephine Tey: The jury, having swallowed at one nauseating gulp the business of viewing the body, had The jury, having swallowed at one nauseating gulp the business of viewing the body, had settled into their places with that air of conscious importance and simulated modesty which belongs to those initiated into a mystery. — Josephine Tey
Simulated Sayings By Margaret Wertheim: Computers are very powerful tools, but in the simulated world of the computer, everything has Computers are very powerful tools, but in the simulated world of the computer, everything has to be calculated. — Margaret Wertheim
Simulated Sayings By Timothy Snyder: When the American president and his national security adviser speak of fighting terrorism alongside Russia, When the American president and his national security adviser speak of fighting terrorism alongside Russia, what they are proposing to the American people is terror management: the exploitation of real, dubious, and simulated terror attacks to bring down democracy. The Russian recap of the first telephone call between the president and Vladimir Putin is telling: The two men "shared the opinion that it is necessary to join forces against the common enemy number one: international terrorism and extremism. — Timothy Snyder
Simulated Sayings By Stephane Audeguy: The law of computers is the same as the law of the marketplace. The earth's The law of computers is the same as the law of the marketplace. The earth's atmosphere was divided up into a network of cubes, each reducible to a collection of points, and each point the product of a set of calculations. As far as science was concerned, this was the end of clouds, which were but a series of coordinates simulated in a space of greater than three dimensions. — Stephane Audeguy
Simulated Sayings By Neal Stephenson: This was governed entirely by Newtonian mechanics. Each piece of the moon attracted every other This was governed entirely by Newtonian mechanics. Each piece of the moon attracted every other piece more or less strongly depending on its mass and its distance. It could be simulated on a computer quite easily. The whole rubble cloud was gravitationally bound. Any shrapnel fast enough to escape had done so already. The rest was drifting around in a loose huddle of rocks. Sometimes they banged into one another. Eventually they would stick together and the moon would begin to re-form. — Neal Stephenson
Simulated Sayings By Jean Illsley Clarke: By the age of 18, the average child has witnessed 200,000 acts of violence, including By the age of 18, the average child has witnessed 200,000 acts of violence, including 18,000 simulated murders, on television. It is not always easy to provide clear, consistent structure for children, but providing it often helps keep children safe and helps them grow to be responsible adults. — Jean Illsley Clarke
Simulated Sayings By Lewis Pugh: I had a dream , okay, go do a swim off Antarctica, and I'd train I had a dream , okay, go do a swim off Antarctica, and I'd train in Gauteng and just dive into the sea off Antarctica ... You've really got to do a simulated test as best you can in South Africa before you go off. — Lewis Pugh
