I suppose I think that these are value judgements and amount to saying it is better for people to live in the countryside than in the city and we will make these value judgements for a multitude of interlocking reasons but hopefully we are able to be guided by feedback from our machines. Where do I feel happier, where do I feel healthier, where do I do my best thinking, where can I best set up a communication channel to The Instructors, the disincarnate intelligences of the invisible world and so on and so forth.basically it's not unreasonable to say things like, "it's more natural for ppl to live in the countryside than the city". it's not necessarily true (or false), and it might be a cliche or whatever, but it's not a meaningless or incoherent claim
Yes. It's worth doing something. My approach is based on millions of years of history and unconfined rationality, yours on commune with the Godhead and mortification of the flesh. Both valid.And that question might lead you to eat brown rice and vegetables, drastically cut down on your drinking and keep a regular appointment with Adrienne like me or it might lead you to drink red wine everyday, deadlift, and eat nothing but steak like HMG....its unpredictable....
Horseshoe theory, Dissensus-style!Yes. It's worth doing something. My approach is based on millions of years of history and unconfined rationality, yours on commune with the Godhead and mortification of the flesh. Both valid.
Sausage casseroles and radio 4 level popular science, not so much.
this is where you get into the problem of our natures being 'hacked'the other thing to take into account is that what is 'natural' to a domestic or farm animal may not neccessarily be in its own best interests and the task may be to unplug the natural impulses and discover a freedom from the dictates of a preprogrammed 'nature'
