Re: Limit your choices

Doing nothing could be a choice, a potentially sub-optimal one.

Re: ERE VS communism

When communism has been attempted to be implemented in the past it has failed. Perhaps those failure points can be resolved and it would work. Even though capitalism has worked out relatively well, in practice it has flaws too in my opinion, maybe those can be fixed too. Sid will entertain BRUTE's v...

Thoughts from a distraught individual

I get the feeling that most of the people on this forum are far from the norm (not necessarily good or bad). Reasons for this assertion are: ERE is uncommon and very different than the average ways of life, intelligence here is significantly higher than the norm, and generally rare personalities (in...

Re: ERE VS capitalism

One thing I always ask my friends is: Would it be better to improve the system we have, or implement a whole new system? They usually say try to fix the one we have (as an enfj friend recently said). I would rather see a new one put in place (an an intj friend of mine thinks), it seems like jennypen...

Re: MBTI as a disorder/disease

This makes me think, is it better to exploit one's strengths, or improve weaknesses? I think play to strengths most of the time, but sometimes work on decreasing weakness.

Re: How to approach school disciplining my son (detention)? Parents please weigh in

When I was in kindergarden my friend and I went to the cubbies that everyone had and we broke everybody's pencils. The situation was resolved and at this point in time it was 1 out of 1000000 events that make me who I am now. This situation does seem like retro-active punishment, if it is probably t...

Re: Jeff Bezos has a plan

Also reducing energy usage per time would increase the amount of time we have. I think that is what "Scale" is getting at, in the future, incorporating models of scale and exponential growth inherent in the nature of cities and businesses so that they may be better and more efficiently designed.

I would say that this housing score is gives a good general idea of your situation, you could make your own scheme with all the things you find important and weight them appropriately.

Re: Jeff Bezos has a plan

Based on what I have learned from "Scale", In order for humans to colonize space, innovation must grow at an accelerated pace so that it may beat the super linear growth and energy consumption of humans. If this does not happen we are screwed, not only in terms of space colonization but also the ear...
