01:49 ilbot3 joined #6macros
07:49 masak a couple of new slogans that I've come up with in the past few days
07:49 masak "quasi code never runs"
07:49 masak (that one is obvious once you start thinking about it)
07:50 masak "macro-expanded code is always synthetic" -- controversial, but useful, I think
07:50 masak also thinking of introducing the term "facsimile" to denote code that has been expanded because of a macro
07:51 masak the term is meant to evoke that something has been copied into an identical clone
07:51 masak because each concrete macro expansion produces a distinct facsimile, even when everything else is kept the same
09:29 masak update: jnthn thinks I should use the terms "replicate"/"replica" instead
