Thank you! Very clean and solid analysis.
Great post, I really enjoyed reading it. But there are a lot of small misspellings and grammatical errors. I think LW offers some kind of proofreading service. (Or maybe you can find a friend / volunteer.)
Fwiw my dentist told me to floss as well. I tried and noticed obvious improvements on the next appt (so about 3 months). I did it for a year and it was good. Then I stopped and sure enough next appt the gums were sore and bleeding during the test. I didn’t floss for a year. As soon as I started again, the improvement came back.
I guess now for me this is one of those things that has been so thoroughly proven and validated by my own experience that it’s easy to do.
Oh and also I hate all floss devices except this: Listerine UltraClean Access Flosser WITH Refill Pack (Pack Of 1) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QSNP80U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_797DS9JJAS3VJJJ55E8X?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Thanks for sharing. My wife and I have “dreamed” about a shared housing scenario as well, raising our kids side by side with friends. But yeah, it seems super difficult
to arrange and (I imagine) to maintain.
Part of my model is that spiritual students tend to be a lot more prone to wanting to connect in a physical way. Sometimes to the point of almost literally throwing themselves at the teacher.
A reply that came to mind for me: “oh yeah. I guess I’m bored. I didn’t realize until you just pointed it out.”
I like this a lot! I wish, as they say, that I could give this more than one (strong) upvote! I think if you continue writing, you could definitely make something at least as good at Friendship is Optimal. And if you continue past that, quite possibly even HPMOR.
Let me try to say a bit more about why I liked this so much. 1) As I was reading it, I was connecting the story / seeing parallels with my life. That’s always a plus in my book. The story helps me get a different handle on my reality. 2) I could empathize with all of the characters. Even though they weren’t fleshed out, they felt pretty real to me. 3) Of course the subject matter of utopias is interesting. But the additional mix of past lives in interesting as well. Would be interesting to read more about how that feels & works. 4) There’s also something a bit more nebulous… like the underlying attitude of the characters / story that feels refreshing. It’s not cynical.
Thanks for the summary. Just a quick note: I found that multiple headers & jumping between different “lenses” made it much harder to me to read the post. I guess I’d wish that those blocks would be larger, possibly all the way separated.
I gotta say the more I read this sequence the more interesting and helpful I find it. Thank you!
Would you recommend it? What’s the website?
Congrats on the new born!
My cryptocurrency quant hedge fund is looking to hire engineers. If you’re curious, PM me. :)
Well, I already tried recruiting you for our hedge fund, so not really. :D Although it’s possible with covid there’s a larger pool of remote jobs available.
But yeah, given all those constraints, it’s quite possible you’re in a relatively optimal position.
First off, kudos for putting your view up for criticism.I’m surprised nobody has mentioned the opportunity cost. Putting the question of whether or not ads are good or bad aside, do you think you can find a job that creates more good in the world and pays about the same?
Very cool, this sounds a lot like my own story too. Welcome to the club!
I like this format a lot: here’s what I wanted to learn, here’s what I did, here’s my proposed better method. I. A world where we learn things via an amalgamation of blog posts and videos, this seems like an efficient way of helping others learn.
I think there should be a tag for this method!
Thank you, this looks extremely useful. It’s been on my todo list to learn about transformers for a while. And this looks like a great path to follow.
I commit to respond with how my learning went once I follow this guide. (Will probably be later this year.)
What are your thoughts / advice on working as an individual vs joining an existing team / company when it comes to safety research? (For yourself and for others)
Thank you for looking into this and posting about it. This question has been on my mind a lot.
