WHEN: 06 April 2015 06:30:00PM (-0700)

WHERE: Paul G. Allen Center, 185 Stevens Way, Seattle, Washington

This is a semi-weekly meetup to discuss and work through the Sequences while getting to know other aspiring rationalists in the Seattle area. Each session's reading list is posted below, and in the relevant Facebook event. We usually discuss the sequence posts, and sometimes also cover relevant applied rationality techniques.

If you missed the last meetup (23 March), you're not alone. We will be discussing the fifth part of the sequence at this meetup, but there might be some discussion of the fourth part as well since most people weren't able to make it.

As the name suggests, this meetup will go over the fifth part of the "Mysterious Answers to Mysterious Questions" sequence. We previously covered the "Map and territory" sequence. All are welcome to join, though, even if they've read all of the sequences already or haven't yet caught up to us.

There are often snacks at the meetup, which typically runs until around 8:30 or 9. After that, many of us go get dinner on the Ave.
