Text Quotes
The obvious choice isn’t always the best choice, but sometimes, by golly, it is. I don’t stop looking as soon I find an obvious answer, but if I go on looking, and the obvious-seeming answer still seems obvious, I don’t feel guilty about keeping it.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) I’m wondering if there’s a spell to make lightning flash in the background whenever I make an ominous resolution  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) I keep trying to explain to people that the archetype of intelligence is not Dustin Hoffman in ‘The Rain Man;’ it is a human being, period. It is squishy things that explode in a vacuum, leaving footprints on their moon  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) The purest case of an intelligence explosion would be an Artificial Intelligence rewriting its own source code. The key idea is that if you can improve intelligence even a little, the process accelerates. It’s a tipping point. Like trying to balance a pen on one end - as soon as it tilts even a little, it quickly falls the rest of the way  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) We tend to see individual differences instead of human universals. Thus, when someone says the word ‘intelligence,’ we think of Einstein instead of humans  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Since the rise of Homo sapiens, human beings have been the smartest minds around. But very shortly - on a historical scale, that is - we can expect technology to break the upper bound on intelligence that has held for the last few tens of thousands of years  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) There’s a popular concept of ‘intelligence’ as book smarts, like calculus or chess, as opposed to, say, social skills. So people say that ‘it takes more than intelligence to succeed in human society.’ But social skills reside in the brain, not the kidneys  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Let the winds of evidence blow you about as though you are a leaf, with no direction of your own. Beware lest you fight a rearguard retreat against the evidence, grudgingly conceding each foot of ground only when forced, feeling cheated. Surrender to the truth as quickly as you can  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Anything that could give rise to smarter-than-human intelligence - in the form of Artificial Intelligence, brain-computer interfaces, or neuroscience-based human intelligence enhancement - wins hands down beyond contest as doing the most to change the world. Nothing else is even in the same league.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Textbook science is beautiful! Textbook science is comprehensible, unlike mere fascinating words that can never be truly beautiful. Elementary science textbooks describe simple theories, and simplicity is the core of scientific beauty. Fascinating words have no power, nor yet any meaning, without the math.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Nothing you’ll read as breaking news will ever hold a candle to the sheer beauty of settled science. Textbook science has carefully phrased explanations for new students, math derived step by step, plenty of experiments as illustration, and test problems.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) I wouldn’t be surprised if tomorrow was the Final Dawn, the last sunrise before the Earth and Sun are reshaped into computing elements.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Trying and getting hurt can’t possibly be worse for you than being... stuck.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) When you think of intelligence, don’t think of a college professor; think of human beings as opposed to chimpanzees. If you don’t have human intelligence, you’re not even in the game.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) The systematic experimental study of reproducible errors of human reasoning, and what these errors reveal about underlying mental processes, is known as the heuristics and biases program in cognitive psychology. This program has made discoveries highly relevant to assessors of global catastrophic risks.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) The media thinks that only the cutting edge of science, the very latest controversies, are worth reporting on. How often do you see headlines like ‘General Relativity still governing planetary orbits’ or ‘Phlogiston theory remains false’? By the time anything is solid science, it is no longer a breaking headline.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) I want to carry in my heart forever the key word of the Olympics - ‘passion.’  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) When something is universal enough in our everyday lives, we take it for granted to the point of forgetting it exists.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) My successes already accomplished have mostly been taking existing science and getting people to apply it in their everyday lives.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) If you handed [character] a glass that was 90% full, he’d tell you that the 10% empty part proved that no one really cared about water.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) If our extinction proceeds slowly enough to allow a moment of horrified realization, the doers of the deed will likely be quite taken aback on realizing that they have actually destroyed the world. Therefore I suggest that if the Earth is destroyed, it will probably be by mistake.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Transhumanists are not fond of death. We would stop it if we could. To this end, we support research that holds out hope of a future in which humanity has defeated death.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Remember, if you succeed in everything you try in life, you’re living below your full potential and you should take up more difficult or daring things.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) But it is cute. It’s such a boy thing to do.Drop dead.Aw, you say the most romantic things.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) In our skulls, we carry around 3 pounds of slimy, wet, greyish tissue, corrugated like crumpled toilet paper. You wouldn’t think, to look at the unappetizing lump, that it was some of the most powerful stuff in the known universe.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Between hindsight bias, fake causality, positive bias, anchoring/priming, et cetera et cetera, and above all the dreaded confirmation bias, once an idea gets into your head, it’s probably going to stay there.  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) You are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) Trying and getting hurt can’t possibly be worse for you than being... stuck  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) World domination is such an ugly phrase. I prefer to call it world optimisation  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes) I only want power so I can get books  (Eliezer Yudkowsky Quotes)
