I promise to take care of my rationality skills when the work is done
Thank You! You are my hero, tho I’m not your princess
oops seems like I misclicked, this was off course a reply to Clarity
mate thank your for your help, I hope interpals would work out there for me, The thing is I don’t want to go meta on this, it’s just a reminder for myself and that’s it, it wasn’t designed as a solution for something else
I want to have ‘tsuyoku naritai’ tattoo and wondering how it should be written properly on hieroglyphic
sorry, not sure if this should be posted here, but I hadn’t yet found more rational strategy for my problem. If any of you guys know someone who can speak and write Japanese please contact me, I would very appreciate any help
Based on what I have just read you have nothing to worry about
Good point. However most of her opinions seem to be unfalsifiable, like how I can tell if Dao technic of Inner Smile doesn’t work, maybe I’m smiling to my organs not sincerely enough
This topic is valuable me. Every time when me and my girlfriend getting involved in argument it ends up badly and we continue on holding prior beliefs. She blames me for being too rational (In hollywood sense obv, none of my efforts to convince that the word has different meaning payed off). She is absolutely sure that when you hold a skeptical position, you are getting trapped into it, so entry gate for outside view is closed and you are limiting the spectrum of possibilities. With this I’m okay because I like to think of myself as an open-minded person and I can assume that the universe is not objective. But I’m rapidly getting tired when it comes to secret meanings of events and perfect casuality and total misunderstanding of randomness. In her head there is a strange mash of esoterics, buddhism, astrology somehow combined with evolutionary biology in perfect harmony. I’m not sure whether I should try harder to convert her or give up. Maybe I gave up already, because it seems that open-minded people lack neuroplasticity
There are some kind of forecasting tournaments provided by Phillip Tetlock mainly associated with politics issues, however I’ve found no info on how to enter one. Here is a short introductory course
In my opinion prediction markets are still very raw concept which doesn’t grow and spread very well in its current form and needs capital transformation
I think it is a very bad idea. Can’t imagine how rational sex would looks like. After all looking back at your life you will be asking a question I lived a life or I had existed
Still makes me smile as I remember the context and nerdy philosophy professor. Hyperbolic but it doesn’t make it any worse
The idea to combine happiness guide with rationality techniques and popularizing science seems appealing to me. Unfortunately video is not available for watching in my region. The book content I suppose have to be very introductory and written in friendly language opposing to “from ai to zombies” for example. Where I can see some of your previous publications? And why you want to crowdfund an actual hardcover book and not distribute it through Amazon e-books?
Also don’t forget to introduce the biases and give some kind of shining example of fallacy. Maybe you should have an actor in the hall, or you just go with an improvisation of course. I mean asking someone from the audience about whether Linda seems to be more a bank-teller or a bank-teller and a feminist and similar stuff. With your ‘raising awareness’ goal it would be halfway if someone says oops
Liron Shapiro gave an introductory talk to kids about epistemic rationality, if I remember correctly.
Why you don’t like to include ageless “Politics is a mind-killer” fable? This is I beleive part of the reason why rationale keeps failing in our world and views remain one-sided
BTW, gl mate!
I can understand the compass part, it can be very useful and save your life onetime, but time-sense? For what the heck you might need this? In peoples world people wear watches or have timers on their smartphones, and in the world there’s no people there’s no time
Have you got an idea how to test this, without actually raising or destroying the rock? Or maybe you got some other piece of Buddha’s hair in your grandma’s cellar?
Impermanence is the only permanent thing I guess btw it might not be helpful;
And you are obviously right about that it is only the center of the mass that matters
