It works perfectly. Thanks again!
That looks perfect! I’ll test it out later.
My IRL rationality group is preparing to test that sequence. It looks promising, although we do have some quibbles with it. If we successfully finish testing, we’ll publish the details.
This may seem stupid, but I didn’t even think about doing odds calibration on such a small scale. That’s a great idea. Making a pinned Google Keep note now.
I was thinking “Tsuyoku Naritai”. 😊
If I understand you correctly, I wholeheartedly agree that “Less Wrong” is not just referring to a dichotomy of “what is true” and “what is wrong” (although that is part of it, ala ‘Map and Territory’).
There’s a reason rationality is often called “systemized winning”; while the goals that you are trying to win are entirely subjective, rationality can help you decide what is most optimal in your pursuit of goal Y.
Thank you for the encouragement! I hope I didn’t sound like I was fishing for that. I just wanted to emphasize my desire to seek any other more optimal paths.
Good idea! Get comfortable with my own journey before using someone else’s. Makes sense.
Yes! The facebook event page links to our Facebook group.
Just listened to that about 10 minutes ago. Good sequence.
When you say “assumption”, I hear “a thing that is accepted to be true”.
What changes in cognition when something is accepted as true?
Please have a non-leather hardcover option for us vegans. :)
Please no real leather for us vegans. :)
No hardcover option?
Thanks for the feedback!
The most indiscrete example I have in mind would be to include it in the channel name; a clunky example would be ‘Less Wrong Street Epistemology’.
I had no intention of using the official logo, merely make direct references.
Hi, Motasaurus. I certainly hope you stick around! Don’t let our disagreements drive you off.
However, on that note, I’m afraid I would have to disagree. While I think you can have “better than average” epistemology and still be a Christian, perhaps even be in the top 25% percentile, I don’t believe you can aspire to be a perfect Bayesian and still be a Christian.
I would respectfully point out that the Apostle John is hardly a neutral spectator in determining whether one can be both Christian and Rational. Additionally, he certainly didn’t have access to anywhere near the same level of understanding of human cognition, science, and probability theory as we do; to use an Eliezer illustration, the greatest physicists of his age couldn’t have calculated the path of a falling apple.
Also, how would one go about acquiring these CFAR techniques? Is attending a workshop mandatory? I don’t quite have the discretionary funds for that. :P
One of the hallmarks of a typical dojo is that the Sensei will demonstrate techniques, and show how they are supposed to look once you have mastered them.
Is it possible that this is an optional feature, if only for a rationality dojo?
