The Fifth Science
About this deal
Its both extremely comforting and discomforting to realise that no matter the technological progress, no matter how many thousands of years has passed, humans may still be humans, doing the silly things that only humans can do. Maybe you have a specific framework to adopt when you are with your loving family while a different one when being ruthless at work.

I really love when creators do this, and on this instance specially it was lovely to learn about how Exurb1a came up with such mindboggling story prompts. This book is one of the few artfully-crafted novels where you open it with few expectations, then simply cannot put it down, except in this case, you can't put it down even though you're having the worst existential crisis of your life while simultaneously being overwhelmingly excited for the science that might come in the next few years.While some might think it a bit silly to draw comparisons between machine learning and consciousness, I do honestly believe it is how we will best learn to understand it.

I would highly recommend to anyone that likes massive universes with very personal/individual stories that paint the picture of humanity as a whole.
Be Awake, Be Good - This had two remarkable ideas I would like to highlight, one was about narrative collapse that I feel is surely upcoming in a form in our world as we lose trust in authority and institutions. Which made me watch a YouTube video which took me to a science vid and then to a history vid and then to an Exurb1a video about the universe, where I spent over an hour on the channel.To the engineers and scientists who will one day build minds; from whatever materials, in whatever form. Throughout the book I spotted several stories that I wanted to mention here as my favourite but there are now quite a lot of them. Those thoughts themselves MIGHT have bumped this book closer to a three-star rating, but the round-down factor came in the form of the author’s rather transparent attempts at self-effacement in the explanatory notes and the back cover blurbs.
That is, the consolidation of intelligence, the gathering of the wool of perfect wisdom, and the death of want. He watched the rice paddies from the train and admired the simple dress of the folk around him, most of them clothed in only single white shawls. Materials and other resources that will help in achieving a universal understanding of the core logic of the Fifth Science are encouraged.Exurb1a manages to mix interesting technological and philosophical ideas with the human element that binds them together so nicely and creates an experience that in my opinion isn't worth missing out on. The new site has been transformed into an interactive mode wherein people can sign in regardless of religion, race, culture, or ideology but who believe in the Gnostic significance.
