Moral Codes for Heroes and Gods
This is taken from Eliezer’s Author’s Notes for November:
To anyone who wants to live in a saner world: the Center for Applied Rationality is now in that vital startup stage where every dollar matters – where donations greatly shorten the timeline to better research, and determine who can be hired as the first employees. There’s a chance here to reach up toward that impossible dream of a better world where people aren’t crazy all the damn time, because believe it or not, nobody’s really tried anything like this before. If you’ve got the power to fund this sort of thing – drop by our Berkeley office and talk to us, or attend a workshop and see for yourself what’s going on. Or just act immediately. Science, reason, and rationality – it’s what Muggles use instead of magic, and it’s all we’ve got.
