Jon Fitch is officially not boring. 

His most recent fight against Erick Silva tossed that idea at us slow-pitch softball style, but the American Kickboxing Academy welterweight hurtled a fastball of polarizing interest straight at our faces in a recent late-night Twitter session. 

The list of Tweets is lengthy (you can't solve the world's riddles in 140 characters, after all), but stick with them for full effect. 


Patternicity: Noun. The tendency to find meaningful patterns in both meaningful and meaningless noise.

Patternicity causes 2 types of errors.A type 1 error, or false positive, is believing a pattern is real when it is not.

A type 2 error, or a false negative, is not believinga pattern is real when it is.

Type 1 error: believe that the rustle in the grass is a dangerous predator when it is just the wind (low cost).

Type 2 error: believe that the rustle in the grass is just the wind when it is a dangerous predator (high cost) = death

We ARE the descendants of the most successful Patternicity primates.

Is you mind blown yet? Probably not, right? I mean, that's pretty cool knowledge, but it doesn't exactly enlighten one's spirit. 

Oh, speaking of spirits, Fitch went on to chuck these at us:


AgenticityThe tendency to infuse patterns with meaning, intention, and agency, often invisible beings & from the top down.

May explain: Souls, spirits, ghosts, gods, demons, angels, aliens, intelligent designers, government conspiracist, and all manner of.....

invisible agents with the power and intention are believed to haunt our world and control our lives.

I'm not sure if Fitch was hitting the booze (or the bong) or if this is just how the man spends his evenings. Either way, it's good to know I'm not the only person that stays up much longer than I should pondering the universe's inner workings. 

Somebody needs to hook this guy up with Mac Danzig, and maybe the world will be free of its petty problems and unsolvable mysteries. 

Fitch, being the gentleman that he is, promptly announced his bedtime and wished us well. 


Hope I blew your minds. Bedtime.

Sweet dreams, Mr. Fitch. May your ever-thirsty brain refuel for another night of meaningless speculation.
