Sorry, you are right of course, i made a very poor case. About 'very well written' i meant that the arguments it makes against religion or the existence of God are clear, logical and exemplified. They are maybe unnecessarily numerous but entertaining. The arguments the author makes against existing social norms are similarly quite good. Reading this Testament is vaccinating against metaphysical ramblings, double think and silly social norms.

While I intuitively agree with the first takeaway (that moving Schelling points is usually expensive), I think that politics do not have to be a zero sum game. Look at EU or at coalitions creating governments within one country (you US citizens do not have that, I realize). Anyhow, I think that logical resolution would be to punish the cheating family with war as in reiterated prisoners dilemma.

Oh, ok, I get it slows down ageing. I hoped that you may know of some evidence that it reverses degeneration. in retrospect, I can see that you wrote anti and not de ageing , so the misunderstanding is entirely my fault. Thanks for your clarification 😊

Hello James.

I have not heard about anti aging effects but apart from standard indications, I know it helps to loose weight and to an extent prevents obesity. In a oblique manner it may be also a way to deage yourself but... How do you know about the anti-aging effect and what does it mean really? It doesn't reverse time obviously.

I am sorry, to doubt. It just seems to be an extraordinary claim.

Best regards, Piotr, anaesthetist intensivist.

Sorry, English is not my first language. What I mean by renumeration delay is a waiting period between e.g. sowing and harvesting the crops. So in my original question I imply that I have difficulty to discern whether the crops will show up at all.

I find your post confusing. Do you believe in body - mind dualism or was it just a manner of speaking? Maybe you mean that "body memory" is an intuitive subconscious process in the brain?

Hello. I would like to read about a fine line between the Sunk Cost Fallacy and remuneration delay in a long term investment, whether in relationship or changing workplace, and ways to discern the difference. Thank you.
