I didn’t take any good photos recently, so here’s a video with creepy music instead – the better to with this scifi horror short story that I read recently, “Lena” on ems by qntm.
Much darker vision than Hanson’s. Though I suppose if there are trillions of ems, only a small percentage of them will be in simulations run by sadists. Unfortunate instances regardless, net welfare will likely be way higher (at least until Malthusianism sets in).
There’s some vigorous debates (read: mud-flinging) on whether Navalny is a nationalist. They all miss the point. I need to do a writeup of that thread while people are still interested.
