Just a few questions for some of you:
Running simulations with sentient beings is generally accepted as bad here at LW; yes or no?
If you assign a high probability of reality being simulated, does it follow that most people with our experiences are simulated sentient beings?
I don't have an opinion yet, but I find the combination of answering yes to both questions, extremely unsettling. It's like the whole universe conspires against your values. Surprisingly, each idea encountered by itself doesn't seem to too bad. It's when simultaneously being against simulation of sentience beings and believing that most sentient beings are probably simulated, that really makes it disturbing.
What's bad about running simulations with sentient beings? (Nonperson Predicates is about inadvertently running simulations with sentient beings and then killing them because you're done with the simulation.)
If it's worth saying, but not worth its own post (even in Discussion), then it goes here.
