Ah. Thanks! I think I get that.
But maybe I just think I do. I thought I understood that narrow part of Wei Dai’s post on a problem that maybe defeats TDT. I had no idea that compassion had already been considered and compensated out of consideration. And that’s such common shared knowledge here in the LessWrong community that it need not be mentioned.
I have a lot to learn. I now see I was very arrogant think I could contribute here. I should read the archives & wiki before I post. I apologize.
