There's already a contest going on here:  First person to create an FAI
proves that they're the best! ;)

You know I used to think the people on the transhumanist lists were
ultra-smart but gradually I came to realize that hey, you know, these guys
aren't actually that good.  There's a lot of one-dimensional ideologies
being argued for (like Libertarianism or Socialism for instance) or bizarre
intellectual blind-spots.  I think rationality, imagination and empirical
knowledge ultimately wins out over raw IQ.  The only person on the lists
that's really any good is Eliezer but even he is not *that* good: my
impression that a REAL transhuman would still eat that Eliezer pussy for
breakfast (intellectually)  and as for everyone else, a real transhuman
would find their arguments so laughable that it wouldn't even bother to
respond ;)

No one here but me spotted the three time dimensions (which believe me to a
real transhuman will be the most friggin obvious thing in the world) nor did
any one here but me spot 7-aspect monism (the 7 fundamental properties
making up the deep structure of reality).  Like I said, no offense, but you
guys just ain't that good.

Time for Eli and the rest to face REAL transhuman awareness (well, not
really but pseudo transhuman-awareness at least).  Let's see how he fares.
This is gonna be funny.  Wanna see me kick some super-genius arse? ;)

Let the games commence:

"Till shade is gone, till water is gone, into the shadow with teeth bared,
screaming defiance with the last breath, to spit in Sightblinder's eye on
the last day"
