~You're the best friend
That I ever had
I've been with you such a long time

You're my sunshine
And I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you

You're my best friend~

is this the guy that theorized about that absolutely insane thought experiment "something something basilisk" where the point was that simply knowing about it made it more likely to occur


except it was all based on really stupid assumptions that were meant as gospel, like if someone was torturing an exact replica of you, distant millenia in the future, you should care about it right now because uh...okay i never figured that out because lol that's not how anything works at all. but that was like the central motivating drive behind the whole thought experiment.

for real, i barely care about other people when i dont know for a fact that theyre terrible human beings why would i care about a me thats not even the actual me

It's weird to pretend to be a phd researcher and blog about your made-up research just so you can better "take down" some weird internet guy, in the same way it's weird to go to ulillillia's house and post about what kind of pizza you watched him degrease with your Nikon Monarch X Binoculars.

Nice Meltdown

Pls tell us more about how Yud is the hero of the singularity and how his Harry Potter fanfic is actually superior to the real series.

The rabbit hole goes even deeper: imagine the weirdo who investigated the credentials of the weirdo who discredited Yud.

Did you know he wrote his 950,000 word Harry Potter fanfic without reading any of the books or watching the films? All his Harry Potter info was collected second-hand.

hahaha. This is proof enough that we're living in some kind of hilarious simulation

What's the connection between these dark enlightenment/neoreactionary nutjobs and the alt right? I feel like there has to be something.

I figured he was dissing Jeffrey of YOSPOS because he was the one who knew it, not me.
