another  project WORLDVIEW worldview theme         copyright 2021            Home


I’m honest, value facts, and understand the difference between genes and memes. I know information both acquired by imitation and transmitted by teaching has played a key role in human evolution. I wish to play my part in shaping healthy worldviews—by promoting memes I value and encouraging learning from experience of Reality. The feedback this provides can guide humanity’s adapting to its global environment, promote worldviews associated with better predictions, and encourage honesty. I value exposing lies / calling out delusions, countering false information, and teaching critical thinking skills.
