I feel excitement at noticing the existence of models that I don’t yet have. As many of your “one-liners” felt like whole threads of their own:
The legacy code of floppy disks in nuclear silos. And how one might place greater trust in older systems.
The somewhat “naivety” of American society toward fake news. And whether that’s a feature of high trust societies.
That perhaps the replication crisis may be viewed as a strength of the field of psychology for noticing the problem.
That CPU production is only possible due to the very large economies of scale. Is cpu production economical at the scale of 50 million people?
I also felt fear that we may be inside the Roman Empire so to speak.
It’s fascinating that we use very different thinking when looking at the history / future / present. And that theories are evaluated against different criteria because of how our psychology treats different timeframes.
I’m guessing there’s an equivalent of the status quo bias’ “reversal test” that can be deployed for this temporal bias. The perspective you’re stuck in because you happen to be a resident of the 21st century. Pretending you’re a greek slave or a christian monk or so on.
