another  project WORLDVIEW worldview theme         copyright 2024        Home


I like sharing “Today I learned…” and later using my new knowledge in teaching others. I’m honest, value facts, and can distinguish between the role of genes and memes in human evolution. I want to advance cultural evolution and shape healthy worldviews by promoting memes I value, and encourage learning from experience of Reality.  Feedback this provides can guide humanity adapting to its global environment, promote worldviews associated with better predictions, and encourage honesty. I value exposing lies / deceit, countering false information, and teaching critical thinking skills to others so they can do this.
