Link? More than once sentence? Please? Question mark?

Working on it ^^ i wanted to get it out there so people could turn to HBO, and this is discussion so i don't really focus on the complex trains of thought.

Here, if you're a scofflaw and want to watch it.

who wants their parents around for thousands of years? :p

Reversal test: would you murder your parents if a legal loophole allowed it and they'd otherwise live for thousands of years?If yes, would you accept not doing it because if they can predict you will they will choose not to have children and defecting on acausal trade makes you less likely to exist?

You can prefer realities where certain things happen even if you wouldn't have done that thing yourself.

also it was a joke.

talking about the singularity in terms my parents will understand.

I don't think this video does enough to bridge the inferential distance; a q&a session is the wrong format to do that anyway.
