We’re raising a generation of men and women who view having children as entirely optional, and I believe this… Continue reading Pro choice does not mean the right to not have children.
Why? Because: There isn’t anything in nothing that may become something. It is important to understand nothingness and the repercussions that its existence has on your existence.

This dream that I’m dreaming is my reality. Yet, this idea, “reality”, as if there is any “fakety” to oppose it …, what do we mean by it?

But what if I imagine something that… Continue reading This dream that I’m dreaming is my reality
There is no God willing to torture you for an eternity, because eternal torture is boring. There is no eternal happiness either.

The manipulated gets information and arguments and chains of inference and deduction with no effort. They do not verify information because they have the same. human problem with giving back… Continue reading Manipulation works because people like to get smart for free.
Being a human in this day and age got limited. I feel like those kind of questions which were asked once with great reverence, are today barely referenced as conversation starters. People don’t want to go in depth anymore. What scarred me is that the shallowness is not the kind you find at careless teenagers… Continue reading Change your denominator.
Here is a short theory. Product innovation is all the work which satisfies one of these two outcomes: A) it increases the size of the core user base B) it increases the amount of added value for the product This is it. Really. And you can see this in place at the current Behemoths of… Continue reading Things generally suck because of product innovation

Listen, there currently is no “next big thing.” Internet of shit. The “cloud” of no server admin. Ai. Yes, no capital “i” there. Voice Assistants. Text Assistants. Seriously? Everybody is busy crunching numbers, to analyse the present and predict the future, in an industry made by geeks to pleasure simpletons. The iPhone, with all its… Continue reading It’s Samsung’s fault for Apple’s shitty products
The computer is an asshole Learning to program a computer is a lot like talking to a person you’ve barely met. You are kinda awkward for a while, they are also a bit of holding back on emotions and both of you try not to screw it up. When you program a computer you will write… Continue reading How to code
Rules should be challenged. Laws should be broken. Both laws and rules are conventions we choose to respect so that we are allowed by other humans to thrive on our own. Yet laws are far more complex than rules. Rules should be simple. Laws should be complex. Complex rules and complicated laws are nothing but inflicted… Continue reading It’s laws that are made to be broken, not rules!
Yeah, another misconception about a common human thing: The act, any act, cannot be immoral by itself until it is merged with intent. That is why we don’t apply moral standards to animals. Wikipedia is so wrong here. Lying can be done without the intention to deceit. In brief, lying is a form of manipulation and… Continue reading Lying is an act, deceit is an intent
Consumption is not an actual need, it is a necessity Needs differ from necessities, because humans can rationalize adversity. Rationalisation is the action of attempting to explain or justify behaviour or an attitude with logical reasons, even if these are not appropriate. A need is solvable adversity. For all adversity too complex to solve we… Continue reading You do not need to consume
We tend to offer a lot of importance to big issues, and no importance to smaller issues. That means we’re made to withstand adversity, given adversity is grand, yet we’re also made to ignore adversity, given adversity is little. One can live with urinary infection and depression their whole life. We go over hardships and… Continue reading Big issues are show stoppers but small issues are show spoilers
P = NP is a simple and short notation for a problem that “asks whether every problem whose solution can be quickly verified by a computer (NP) can also be quickly solved by a computer (P)”. P = NP means yes, P != NP means no. The golden rule is NP. A moral compass is P. The… Continue reading The uncanny problem with autonomous AI
be careful what you wish for, it might just come true If that future it is not socialist, will we be slaves of wages? In that future, if it is too socialist, will capitalism succumb to failed centralised economies? When I won’t own anything what property will my constitution guarantee? In the business of perpetual renting… Continue reading In a future without ownership:
The master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house. The master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house. They may allow us temporarily to beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change.

Because big companies will afford the robot tax, and will get tax breaks and tax brackets, and will fake jobs to get the breaks and into the brackets, and will lobby for conservative tax on robots, and will lobby for a jungle of legal ways to classify robots to be in certain tax classes, and… Continue reading The Robot Tax Is Not Gonna Save Your Job
or how common sense became luxury. I’m an ultra selective guy and I’m not proud of it. It grew into a genuine nightmare. That’s why I neither recommend, nor endorse, such an attitude. However for those who already have it, the end of the world might come faster than for the others. Why? Because the ubiquity… Continue reading Technology makes the common too uncommon
I have no black friends. I have no gipsy friends. I have no muslim friends. I also have no jewish friends. I think us the white caucasians are the best. I mean, we must be.

I hate the expression: you don’t get to [place human emotional craving here] It is the new way of emotional punishing: crush their oxytocin levels by openly reflective reverse empathy. Who the fuck gave you power over what I get to? Your weird crappy prescription morality? Your obvious logical superiority? And gawd is this popular!… Continue reading Incipient sickness
Larme d’or, Anne Marie Silberman there is only one goal in evolution, to develop time resilient beings.

Flowing from the ceiling, my newly set up naturally yellow light was swiping softly on my… Continue reading My human blind spot
find out why this is important We like trinkets, since forever. We love shiny new toys and sparks and glitter and just about anything bright that beautifully distorts the light it reflects. So do crows. Because we’re all crows who hoard crap, because its shiny and pretty, we inadvertently have expanded this behavior on how we… Continue reading Smart people shine in the light, wise people glow in the dark
We live as if we’ve made it. We act as if we’ve evolved the problems, and now we’re thriving in the midst of the soft comfy solutions we’ve found. But the fact of the matter is we didn’t. The fact is we’re expendable. Just like our forefathers were, so are we, and probably many a… Continue reading The hubris of living in the present
Are we blind to the fact that we have a religious concept guiding our economical theory? Free market and invisible hands What is this “invisible hand” madness? Why are we so convinced that the “market” can handle itself, while we’re depending on it with everything, from our present health to our entire species’ future? In… Continue reading Would you ride an untamed horse?
Love is just one of the many facets of the human experience Behold! I’ve been summoned to mull over an idea. As I am used to tinkering with thoughts, mulling on ideas is a related pleasant activity. However, tinkering is synthetic, while mulling is analytic. The problem with analysis is that it is a time… Continue reading Love is not the answer
A clear introduction to Humanity for the children of tomorrow Part I Welcome, I will be your guide for successful integration into Humanity. Our first plan will cover time.

Oh yes, too bad. That title above may sound like crap, but the truth is we as a species have evolved out of this parent thing a loooong, loooong time ago. First: I don’t have any children. Second, it doesn’t matter. You will understand it doesn’t matter by noticing that this headline is not about… Continue reading All children are awesome, too bad they have parents.
Seriously, I expected a lot more from life. I had the mind of a child who dreamt with a super solid confidence about the future. The future. It is something which I believe has potential. That, potential, is what fascinated me from day one. All that could be. That is potential. All that could be!… Continue reading Potential expectation
This. Most differential diagnosis is so computed operation like, that I am amazed how little people use it. I really wonder how come in every doctor’s office there isn’t already a software to provide suggestions based on symptoms and then learn from medical diagnosis and the outcomes of the symptoms. Neural networks could analyze even… Continue reading Differential diagnosis is more fit for computers than surgery, and yet all you read about is robot surgeons.

This damned theory, which governs our life plans, assumes that happiness is reached at the top of a pyramid of needs, and, until you get there, you must figure out more immediate problems like food, shelter or safety. On the basis of this model, a whole set of directions have been set in our society,… Continue reading Forget Maslow! Everything Is Basic Need.
Explicit shit. The kids who wait for two marshmallows later succeed in life. Those who eat the one on the table in front of them fail. I failed. Repeatedly.
