“Out in the physical world, you lived in a lawful universe of subatomic particles and nothing else. You were built by an optimization process called evolution that only cared about reproductive fitness and didn’t care about what you wanted. The universe did not care about your continued existence, your happiness or your satisfaction. In that uncaring universe, your thoughts formed deterministically as photon hit eye which caused neuron to carry charge to other neuron.
“But now,” she said, standing tall and regal, “You live in a universe in which the rules care about your satisfaction.

I'm hating myself for enjoying this but it has a "Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom" vibe to it, only with fucking Ponies. A hilarious take on paper clip optimisers, only with a more benign, human-centric goal set. Mostly involving friendship and ponies  :lulz:

And then Pent was a Brony.  :horrormirth:

I'm enjoying this absolutely unashamedly. :lulz: It's better written and better researched than many published sci-fi works.
