My experience at and around MIRI and CFAR (inspired by Zoe Curzi's writeup of experiences at Leverage)

Meditation is quite different as in it's more of a state of mind as opposed to an altered mentality. With psychedelics there is a clear distinction between when you are tripping and when you aren't tripping.

However, according to some, even meditation done properly can have negative effects, which would be similar to psychedelics but manifesting slower and through your own effort. Quoted from the book review:

Once you have meditated enough to reach the A&P Event, you’re stuck in the (very unpleasant) Dark Night Of The Soul until you can meditate your way out of it, which could take months or years.

Looking for help to bring edible stuff to Stadtpark.

Requirements: ability to carry ~15 kg for 900 meters (backpack provided), optionally stopping at every corner.

EDIT: thanks to Axel and Attila, now the problem is solved! We won't die of thirst.

Vienna, Austria – ACX Meetups Everywhere 2021

Hello everyone! I'm the new organizer.

As Scott said, please feel free to come even if you feel awkward about it, even if you’re not “the typical ACX reader”, if you haven't read a post in a while, even if you’re worried people won’t like you, etc, etc, etc.

COVID requirements: You are required to be verifiably vaccinated or recovered or PCR-tested after 30 September 5pm. I will check this and then you can lose LW karma. Officials could check this, and then I will lose real-life karma. (Antigen tests are not sufficient as per the new regulations.)

This will be a stationary meetup in Stadtpark on the grass, so bring a blanket to sit on if you can.

Food:

  • Refreshments will be provided.
  • If you're a baking or cooking master, your goodies will be much appreciated.
  • We'll order take-outs around 2pm.

You can register for future meetups at this sign-up sheet. Or you can join other ACX readers in Vienna on Discord here: https://discord.gg/2q8EANfW

If you are strongly against appearing on my photos, please say that to me upon arrival.

One more typo: " You've changed, though Harry. "

Where do LessWrong rationalists debate?

There is a Telegram group called “Less Wrong”, which mostly consists of participants of the European Less Wrong Community Weekend. There are on average 1-2 topics, 30 messages a day.

I suspect this group can’t be shared via link, so PM me with your Telegram ID and I can add you to it.
