Eliezer, I remember an earlier post of yours, when you said something like:
“If I would never do impossible things, how could I ever become stronger?”
That was a very inspirational message for me, much more than any other similar sayings I heard, and this post is full of such insights.
Anyway, on the subject of human augmentation, well, what about them?
If you are talking about a timescale of decades, than intelligence augmentation does seems like a worthy avenue of investment (it doesn’t has to be full scale neural rewiring, it could be just smarter nootropics).
