Robin:
Eliezers philosophy of fun and how it related to human value system was not grounded enough to be intelligble?

Eliezer:
According which criterion is it balanced? How likely is it that extremely positive and strong feedback balances negative side-effect of manipulating people? Did you just justify use of fiction by feeling conflicted about it?
As a side note I'll comment that so far I have no reason to expect your story to be a excellent introduction to your ideas. It does show several ideas well, but readers not familiar with your writing miss a lot easily, but notice that you've used a lot of insider-speak. I have no reason to expect it to be terrible either.

Thom Blake:
Whatever is true of human rightness might not that much look anything invidual humans value, but it ought to address it all somehow. I'd like to hear if there is a reason to expect human rightness to be in some sense coherent and if there is then I'd like to understand in what sense there is. I don't remember from top of my head any posts addresing this.
