Ah, yes, a good reminder: in social context the primary plan is “fake it till you make it”, in personal context the primary plan is “faith it till you make it”, and in most other contexts it's “hard work until it becomes a walking-like habit”.

While people at security conferences discuss narrow online security problems, offline security continues being a mess made with wide swathes of inconveniences.

I suppose that is mostly because people have not learned to copypaste and opensource the offline organisational structures.

Would measuring the peripheral vision ability – which in turn depends on the ability to suppress the eye motion – be a good approximation of frontal lobe performance?

" ... studied some of these tendencies formally, in the lab, where they took classic social psychology experiments but replaced one of the interactants with a computer. What they found is that humans exhibit a range of social emotions and attitudes toward computers, including cooperation and even politeness. It seems that we're wired to treat computers as people." - and I've wondered why people find it so hard to communicate online; of course if you perceive it as communication through another person it gets hampered.

Reminder: “is” does not anyhow lead to “ought”. Or, put in more barbaric way: “just because something is, doesn't mean it must be”.

Conclusion: if you support gay rights you support radical life extension and transhumanism in general (or would support if you thought about it enough).

The description of the thought process leading to that conclusion is yet to be described (and involves an opposition of values that leads either to traditionalism or some of the alternatives).

A possibly better analogy for the filter bubble would be a *thick fog*: you look at someone nearby and think “here's a person mostly in the clear”; you look at someone further away and think “there's a person standing clueless in the fog, likely not seeing much around”; and you look even further away and see no one there.

“Systematicity was always imposed by elites. Few people wanted it, and most would have rejected it if they could. The majority implicitly mistook material progress as something that just happens, not fully recognizing that medicine and jobs and roads and food and the internet depend on vast chains of “because.””

The more familiar you are with the failures of your intuition, the more can you trust it in the remaining cases.

Social-orientedness of thought is one of the things that disentangles the map from the territory and re-entangles it through social signalling.

An additional requirement to explain things rather than to just prove things adds an overhead that reduces the reachable efficiency. Of course, in some way this phrase itself is an explanation; but it is an unclarified explanation not likely to be understood by anyone, presenting the least overhead possible.

Perhaps a better wording: the time spent on communicating ideas is the time spent not advancing them.
