Ok, Cain already referenced this, so I'm not trying to say this is the first time this has been mentioned on PD. But I though the blog post was interesting and important enough to warrant its own thread, so here:http://slatestarcodex.com/2014/07/30/meditations-on-moloch/
This is really long, but it's great
. It's a variation on The Machine™, on Monkey Mind, on Common Walls, and it's really, really wonderful.
And incredibly long. Honestly, give yourself some time if you're planning on reading it all at once.
When you're done, I'd like to talk about it.
