This is a thread for his disciples, us, to try and work out exactly what he is teaching us and how we can bring our own operating systems into line with those commands.

it's not difficult to then extrapolate humans doing whatever they can to enable suprahuman entities to do whatever works in their turn.
Perks of being insane. Unbound by the actual tenability of certain tasks. Negative feedback is harnessed and processed by a vast schizo-psychic reactor. Preclusion of demotivation, every limit merely an obstacle to be overcome, etc, hence all the talk about capitalism being a heuristic ideologization of basic physical dynamics. Heuristic, so not perfect. Room for distillation yet.
and as the model here is so clearly the market the crash is the paradigmatic danger. but also on the individual level. how we manage invest spend our libidinal resourcesImagine some kind of mechanical satellite drifting through space, and there are several dozen thrusters around its perimeter-sphere. Each one, individually, moves in a unique direction, quality, and exerts a certain force, quantity. And yet, these thrusters can be harmoniously programmed to steer the satellite - by having many adjacent thrusters activate simultaneously, their averaged direction is where the satellite moves. By activating a thruster that is aimed against that average direction, we can program for resistance of deceleration.
