Cognitive bias cheat sheet plus links - Because thinking is hard.
Cheat sheet for the cheat sheet:
1. Information overload sucks, so we aggressively filter.
2. Lack of meaning is confusing, so we fill in the gaps.
3. Need to act fast lest we lose our chance, so we jump to conclusions.
4. This isn’t getting easier, so we try to remember the important bits.
1. We don’t see everything. Some of the information we filter out is actually useful and important.
2. Our search for meaning can conjure illusions. We sometimes imagine details that were filled in by our assumptions, and construct meaning and stories that aren’t really there.
3. Quick decisions can be seriously flawed. Some of the quick reactions and decisions we jump to are unfair, self-serving, and counter-productive.
4. Our memory reinforces errors. Some of the stuff we remember for later just makes all of the above systems more biased, and more damaging to our thought processes.
* probably because I've had to look up two words already today while reading a book and it's not even lunchtime.
What I’m telling you is, you’ve basically been eating butternut squash pie, squash bread, and drinking SQUASH FREAKING SPICE LATTES this entire time."
It does make me want to buy a cooking pumpkin and have a pie-off to see how the flavors compare. They are really similar vegetables (OKAY, FRUITS) anyway so there might be no noticeable difference after the spices are added.

So... there is a pivotal moment (for the author in college) near the start of Book 2 where the author pulls out "aseity" from a back pocket and then quotes three bits of a medieval philosophy book. The first time I read this ... Well, I really have to have this stuff Explained Like I'm Five (Summa of the Summa is barely ELI5 enough and with a leg up from reading half of that and knowing what it probably means, I can mostly parse it now), so in fact, I ran completely aground on "aseity-whatever-that-is" (it is explained in situ, but not like I'm 5) and the first quoted bit, as though ramming a sandbank on a spring tide. I think I must have just launched into the next entire page in exasperation without even google-translating the Latin at the end of the second bit (it would have meant nothing to me then anyway so it's just as well.)
this is probably how some, or most, people feel about math. #theologyishardletsgoshopping
I'm not getting naked though.
