Thanks for doing this!
For all three – how would you like to see EA participate in the psychedelic renaissance? What do you think a good marriage of the two communities would look like?
I don’t think we yet are collectively wise enough to engage in memetic and/or tech projects that undermine evolutionary equilibria, fwiw.

80k wubstepping all night long
“All 3,400 hours of Rationality: From AI to Zombies” Speedcore EDM R:A2Z will be the background soundtrack at the Schelling Point Temple of EA Burning Man. 24⁄7 baby.
Big +1 An 80k podcast dubstep house party actually sounds like a good time.… BURNING MAN OF THE NERDS!!!!Robbie Wib-wib-wib-wibibiblin in da HAUS!!!!!!!!

+1 makes sense.
Consider Puritanism. Pursed. The Purge...
Saying “80k tracks the # of calls and # of career plan changes, but doesn’t track the long-run impacts of their advisees” is different from saying “80k focus[es] mainly on # of calls”
I expanded a bit on this question here.
Thank you for this feedback.
From my perspective, I’m writing both for my own sake and for others.
Yes, I want people to think about this for themselves. (I don’t think that’s esoteric.)
What about my style stands out as esoteric?(From my perspective, I’m trying to be as clear & straightforward as possible in the main body of each post. I am also using poetic quotes at the top of some of the posts.)
“Where do you get the impression that they focus mainly on # of calls?”I don’t have this impression. From the original post:
80,000 Hours tracking the number of advising calls they make and the number of career plan changes they catalyze, rather than the long-run impacts their advisees are having in the world.
It would be interesting to see a cohort analysis of 80k advisees by year, looking at what each advisee from each cohort has accomplished out in the world in the following years.
Maybe that already exists? I haven’t seen it, if so.
“Opening with a strong claim, making your readers scroll through a lot of introductory text, and ending abruptly with “but I don’t feel like justifying my point in any way, so come up with your own arguments” is not a very good look on this forum. “I wasn’t intending the text included in the post to be introductory...”[I have read the entirety of The Inner Ring, but not the vast series of apparent prerequisite posts to this one. I would be very surprised if reading them caused me to disagree with the points in this comment, though.]”If you don’t want to read the existing work that undergirds this post, why should I expect further writing to change your mind about the topic?
