  • Commented on How I feel this morning
    No article I've ever read does a good job of explaining what Google Reader actually does, which leads to all sort of fricking stupid suggestions of what to migrate to. Yes, people who use Google Reader know about reader software,...
  • Commented on Roko's Basilisk wants YOU
    I stand corrected about Copenhagen, but proving reality was local would still screw up transactional, so hopefully my point is understood. ;) Every observable outcome would be identical, unless of course someone screwed up their math and its just garbage....
  • Commented on Roko's Basilisk wants YOU
    Copenhagen is not 'bad' if you're just trying to get things done. It's perfectly useful for that. And most people who work with quantum physics are just trying to get things done, and no more care about what's really going...
  • Commented on Roko's Basilisk wants YOU
    Haha, he knows that. Wow. Exactly. That's exactly what I said. He seems to have no idea that any alternatives to MWI except Copenhagen and (what I think is) von Neumann exist. Now, if someone wants to rant about Copenhagen...
  • Commented on Roko's Basilisk wants YOU
    Well, they allude not to Occam's razor but to formalized Occam's razor, like Kolmogorov complexity. Once again leaving the realm of arguable and entering the domain of being completely wrong. Indeed. The thing about complexity that they appear to have...
  • Commented on Roko's Basilisk wants YOU
    I think they believe that this does not affect MWI because - P(Y|X) ˜ 1, then P(X?Y) ˜ P(X) - of a distinction between belief in the implied invisible, and belief in the additional invisible. See e.g. here. If that...
  • Commented on Roko's Basilisk wants YOU
    I guess they imagine something like simulating the universe from the big bang to now and then picking you out. First off, the way physics works, if you did that, within the margin of quantum uncertainty you'd obtain every possible...
  • Commented on Roko's Basilisk wants YOU
    I realized Less Wrong was somewhat off-kilter when I realized that Eliezer apparently thinks that MWI is the only possible interpretation of quantum physics, because of Occam's razor. First, that is not how Occam's Razor's work. Occam's Razor tells you...
  • Commented on 2512
    You've left out something I came up with (Although certainly didn't invent) when trying to pick out the future a mere 200 years from now. Truly intelligent assistant software. Not an 'AI' per se, I have no idea how likely...
