mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes this is why artificial intelligence will never be able to compete with the genuine article.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's really in the vein of "artificial implants and future intelligence will bla bla" sorta argument. one step removed from d&d.
mircea_popescu: the cost of keeping the story straight is an exponential function of time whereas the gains for imperials are fixed at best -- their intended audience has no intelligence or culture. consequently, every usg shill will be leaking lulz after about 6 to 9 months depending on the volume he outputs.

mircea_popescu: "I am a female incel. In 3 weeks I will be a 25 year old virgin. A socially anxious, insecure, overweight, suicidal, complete failure. I'm going to die a kissless virgin. I will always be poor, always lack traditional beauty, always be an obtuse person. Intelligence and grace will never come naturally. And despite years of positivity about myself and with some idea that I was unique and beautiful in my own way, I realize-- th
mircea_popescu: (for the record - average crack whore sampled off us highway today is, in point of fact and as any sort of practical measure of intelligence will show - far above average "student" sampled off us campus.)
mircea_popescu: this is the fundamental problem of ethics, that you can't have an intelligent justification of will, merely a willful justification of intelligence.

mircea_popescu: will. not intelligence.
mircea_popescu: the adaptive behaviour is teh intelligence - the rest, will, if you will, or whatever.
mircea_popescu: in other news - it still remains likely that this summer will see a bevy of various hardforks on offer. practically speaking, trb can offer either its own candidate, which takes a lot of work, or else sit tight and we'll follow the more intelligent of the avaialble offerings, which takes less work but also implies a lot of risk - experience to date shows that there's precious little intelligence available outside the w ☟︎☟︎
mircea_popescu: he has an excess of will and a shortage of intelligence.
mircea_popescu: was for a while. nothing lasts forever : will-based systems go the way of russia once the will is out ; intelligence based systems go the way of lybia once the intelligence's out.
mircea_popescu: and for that matter, the very amusing situation where people (including derps with aspirations of culture and intelligence a la orwell) fell for the very obvious trick of pretending that the nazi/fascist police state stuff was not merely the germans/italians being TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED, ie, doing exactly what britain, the us, russia will do themselves later on, but somehow it were specific about them. sort-of like t
mircea_popescu: <trinque> this is what we will amount to absent intelligence, luck, etc << you will have quite the hill to conquer in showing the woman was bereft intelligence. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: i dub it "derp" and rename your will intelligence.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you ready for the will/intelligence discussion ?
mircea_popescu: fluffypony: it must suck to be universally accepted as mind-numbingly stupid and yet not have the intelligence to be introspective enough to see it within yourself and change for the better << guy's wilful. intelligence can do relatively little, and it generally manifests in people who don't have much will to speak of.
mircea_popescu: “I guess you will have to go to jail. If that is the result of not understanding the Income Tax Law, I will meet you there. We shall have a merry, merry time, for all our friends will be there. It will be an intellectual center, for no one understands the Income Tax Law except persons who have not sufficient intelligence to understand the questions that arise under it.”
mircea_popescu: Then he told Nakamoto he'd accepted an invitation to speak at the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters. "I hope that by talking directly to them and, more importantly, listening to their questions/concerns, they will think of Bitcoin the way I do - as a just-plain-better, more efficient, less-subject-to-political-whims money," he said. "Not as an all-powerful black-market tool that will be used by anarchists to ove
