I think “delusion” is a state that can be engaged with critically while also relied on legally as being psychologically compromising.

I do want a world where more people have more free time, because that seems like an arrangement that is most in the interest of the advancement of organized matter, id est artificial general intelligence. And after such an emergence I would be concerned with the subsistence of human well-being as a pre-requisite to further technical advancement.

In situations where extropy contradicts human well-being, I cease to be an extropian, and become a diplomat between humanity and post-humanity.

Well than I must not be communicating clearly: human well-being (I.e. the most humans as possible with the most free time as possible I.e. communism @thirdform) is the pre-condition to further development.

The Jeffrey Epstein story somehow got even more disturbing today. A New York Times report says that the sex offender and billionaire was using his connections to elite scientists and academics in an attempt to help foster his dream of “seed[ing] the human race with his DNA by impregnating women at his vast New Mexico ranch.”

Not sure what to make of that Epstein post, but as I said with luka’s earlier claim about my ending up selling bullshit to the executive class: if it ends here, it will have been a failure.

But hey I can be convinced otherwise about free time. Maybe people want to be inspired about how to spend their time, in which case I may have a comprehensive existential program in place for them to adopt, should they choose to.
