Groups, categories, sets, classes, and so on are all useful.  If type theory has any useful results that aren't subsumed by the others, then great, use them.  (I have no firm opinion on that either way, though most or all of the type theory results I've seen have analogous results in more general maths so my guess is it's mostly useless.)  My main point is NOT that there aren't useful inferences to be drawn in the domain of what we currently call types (I give an example of type inference, no?), but that those inferences should be unified with value inference and everything inbetween because they are of the same nature and only differentiated historically because of specific and detrimental restrictive assumptions.

It is an unfortunate nature of modern man that when a problem of common interest garners cooperative effort, some troll invariably sets up a toll booth and puts an end to progress.

"Isn't that the definition of a good investment" - define good. Seems like the key distinction is between economic activity that is overall beneficial to everyone, versus zero sum, versus overall destructive but profitable for the investor.

As a ballpark, how many unique molecules (including proteins, etc) are used by and in the human body?  (Counting everything that is part of a structure or process, or any precursors or breakdown products of those, but ignoring the long tail of foreign matter that is just garbage to be dealt with.)  Or what is the range we can put on this with our current knowledge?

wikipathways.org ?

There also seem to be lots of online protein and gene databases of various forms, e.g.
www.rcsb.org

Maybe there's an ML/AI job there to join them all up?

My old NeXT station with monitor and laser printer have come out of hiding in LA and need a home, preferably other than the dump.  Any vintage computing buffs in the area interested, or can recommend a way or place to find it a new home?
