For those that don’t know, a reddit bot will filter all posts and identify key phrases and then respond with a pre-written response.
For example, if someone mentioned the holocaust, there is a bot that will respond with a 1000+ word post explaining the holocaust and controversies around it.
This could be a model furor the whole internet. If you had annotations pop up on peoples posts when they are writing about difficult or controversial topics.

This means that for all effective purposes, if Julius Caesar was transported from Rome to present times right after birth he would be able to grow up with no adjustement issues.
This shows the power of habits and learned knowledge.
The only thing differentiating us from the ancient Egyptians is our retained knowledge.
The things that we are able to teach ourselves to do. And, how quickly we can teach ourselves to do it.
If all knowledge disappeared, we’d be no better off than cave men.

The difference in intelligence between a current genius and the average human is miniscule compared to the difference between an averge human’s intelligence and an ape.
The first cyborg will have a similar advantage with the average human now being the ape.
To make things worse, the cyborg will be able to extend this advantage constantly.
The growth will only be limited by resources and otherwise we can expect it to be exponential.
This means this cyborg will have the ability to walk around in human society and control anyone and anything.
Simply by knowing all human psychology techniques, having perfect recall and the ability to control emotions flawlessly.
You would not be able to tell when the cyborg is lying.
The cyborg will be able to do anything.

I just planned out my week and it took me 30 minutes just to put everything on the calendar and make tradeoffs on which activities to do or not do.
I need to cut out some things.
Its better to focus on a few things well than doing everything poorly.
This is an exercise that I revisit every few months. The commitments add up slowly but surely. Each additional thing seems like a small addition, before you know it you’re swamped.
It will be a constant oscillation between too little and too much.
If you find yourself doing the same thing you do too.
