My ARG is over, it was fun and if anyone thought it was scary, I thought it was an important lesson about using confusing arguments to trick people. The game is over and anybody who was worried can stop worrying. There was no messiah complex.

also I introduced it here (first I think)? because it was a meta joke about blackmail and AI (roko's basalisk) - and recursion, at root it was about recursion of course

if I played with anything dangerous, anybody who watched a weird conspiracy theory movie could have figured the same thing out, that's the lesson

noisesmith06:08:59

so thought isn't dangerous, it protects itself from the worst and that's enough to trust in

Hmmm, that is an interesting thesis. I have always thought that set theory and/or graph theory is a much better use of time. Granted, they are all math-y, but the conference of category theory with strongly typed functional programming can be off-putting, especially if it is presented as a requirement towards proficiency
