Even though the universe is 13.8 billion years old, there is a small chance that we are the very first intelligent species that exists. If this happens to be true, I think we should help any less developed intelligent alien life by telling the history of humanity and warn them about not making the same mistakes that humanity has, as they have been quite numerous.

    if an advanced alien species come down to earth right this very day and tell things that you are saying, do you think govts will follow it? No, because we already know what we are suppose to do. But the powers that be does not want to see that since it is againts their economic interest. Climate Change is one example.

    "It's been estimated that this programme overall will have saved Nasa maybe $30bn-40bn at least," observed Benji Reed, director of crew mission management at SpaceX. "Firm, fixed-price contracts and the kind of truly open partnership where we work together allows that kind of saving to happen and that kind of ability to allow Nasa to invest in more things and do other programmes."

"What is less obvious is that they may also share a fan base — a quirky subgroup of consumers who are systemically drawn to flops and whose reliably contrarian tastes can be used to forecast bad bets in retail sales, real estate and even politics.

    ... a while, even before then. There are all sorts of graphical representations of nature that people have tried in the past, where nature is either assumed discrete at some baseline level; or, where through some kind of limit process these graphs "converge" to our universe. So, whatever is good and true about the *new* work Wolfram has presented, it's not due to the facts that nature can be represented as some kind "program"; it's due to the

    details of how that program actually works, and how closely it fits observed phenomena. That said, I haven't bothered to look into it carefully. It's not really my area of research, anyways, so I will defer to people like John Baez and Sean Carroll. My suspicion is that reading between the lines, you will see them saying, "That's more like what we want to see. Not vague suggestions of nature-as-program; but actual, testable theories about how it works."

    China may develop an actual artificial general intelligence before the United States does. They have more incentive to do so, and aren't bogged down by constant gridlock or empire mismanagement.

    There's plenty we could have done to prevent it. A scientific industrial complex and creating a free society would have been a start. If every individual were liberated our economy would be miles more efficient than any slave society.

    It will be interesting to see if that's all enough of a disincentive. Capital flows where it's most profitable, though companies won't enjoy being under CCP jurisdiction they will submit to it if it's profitable to.

    I can only hope this leads to greater Autarky in the American market. Though I suspect America will gradually shift to other labour pools like Mexico and Latam more instead.

    It may or may not be profitable (that depends on whether the chinese market can survive let alone grow without access to American and potentially european consumer markets and capital stocks)—maybe; but is it more profitable than putting that cash in India or Indonesia or Mexico? Opportunity cost makes the world go ‘round.

President Donald Trump said “we are not closing our country” if the U.S. is hit by a second wave of coronavirus infections. Maybe he sees our country as some map for a pandemic simulation and he wants to see what happens to it? Yeah, it's going to be very educational, I'll bet.

    It's completely understandable, as the other nations do not want another round of Covid deaths. But damn the USA, bc the freedomnites are making it worse for us all.
