intriguing things I have seen since first looking at some writings on the
Kinda makes it worth listening to you all blether about memes and qualia!
I have a question though, do you think the intelligence of the human would
have an effect? Is it easier to persuade a person smarter than you to let
you out, or do you base the assumption on the fact that the person is not as
smart as the transhuman (Eliezer in this case)?
