often it is argued that an ethnostate is something only a collectivist would favor, this is a myopic understanding of human nature relating to tribalism. the simple fact is if you belong to a group which is considered in competition with other groups and they are tribal while your group is not you're fucked.

there is an implication in saying that a world without racial distinctions is favorable, the whole we need to breed out the races meme perpetuated by self-hating white ppl et al. it says all of those who today belong to an identifiable race are a problem and things would be better if we didn't exist. and as such a person who is targeted by this it is only in my rational self interest to resist them, they are my enemy.

Secular Stagnation? The Effect of Aging on Economic Growth in the Age of Automation


>Several recent theories emphasize the negative effects of an aging population on economic growth, either because of the lower labor force participation and productivity of older workers or because aging will create an excess of savings over desired investment, leading to secular stagnation. We show that there is no such negative relationship in the data. If anything, countries experiencing more rapid aging have grown more in recent decades. We suggest that this counterintuitive finding might reflect the more rapid adoption of automation technologies in countries undergoing more pronounced demographic changes, and provide evidence and theoretical underpinnings for this argument.

When Will AI Exceed Human Performance? Evidence from AI Experts


>Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) will transform modern life by reshaping transportation, health, science, finance, and the military. To adapt public policy, we need to better anticipate these advances. Here we report the results from a large survey of machine learning researchers on their beliefs about progress in AI. Researchers predict AI will outperform humans in many activities in the next ten years, such as translating languages (by 2024), writing high-school essays (by 2026), driving a truck (by 2027), working in retail (by 2031), writing a bestselling book (by 2049), and working as a surgeon (by 2053). Researchers believe there is a 50% chance of AI outperforming humans in all tasks in 45 years and of automating all human jobs in 120 years, with Asian respondents expecting these dates much sooner than North Americans. These results will inform discussion amongst researchers and policymakers about anticipating and managing trends in AI.

Graphing Human Potential

Nature and Nurture are both vital to understanding human performance. So to demystify their roles I propose the following method:

Consider the set of genes that code for a specific trait, now for a set of alleles of those genes map the highest possible trait metric against a factorized rating of environmental conditions from least to most favorable in nurturing that trait.

We should expect to find at certain levels of nurturing the trait metric having diminishing returns and point where there is no benefit. We should also expect that different allele combinations vary in graph shapes. pic related, general shape of what I expect to find.

it's fairly obvious that pomotardation has had a significant impact in weakening the mentality of the west over the years through its demonization of reasonable standards and peddling of various forms of sophistry and excusing degeneracy. however something that is often overlooked is how the legacy of christcuckoldry, which is embedded in the core of western culture to this day, does the same but differently. even though many self proclaimed atheists in the west reject the doctrine they unwittingly uphold many of its principles.

christcuckoldry in short is essentially a sort of skywizard demanded pathological altruism. this desert cult makes sacrifice as the highest virtue and it's no surprise then on the scale of civilization that the greatest virtue is the sacrifice of civilization itself. there are countless verses calling on christards to give up their lives in serving their fellow man and that helping others is the highest moral good. something those who call themselves secular humanists believe very much the same albeit without a skywizard to direct them. to make matters worse christards perpetuate several other harmful myths that humanists uphold much the same but without the magical man in the clouds. that we're all god's children or in this together something that is quite evidently false as there are man competing interests in reality. and that meekness (aka weakness) is a virtue, that we should turn the other cheek. there is also the matter of the original sin, that we are born having to redeem ourselves. this takes the form of white privilege in sjw (specific type of pomo) thought but specifically for those of typically western heritage. as one can see many of these ideas linger in secular humanism but their roots are very much christard.

this concoction of pomotardation and christcuckoldry inspired ethics need to be eradicated if the west hopes to survive. we need a new philosophy based on real strength to withstand invasions and internal collapses.

another aspect of why this existence is so awful is its structure not being definable as a free one in itself. whether probabilistic or deterministic our will isn't free from its biology. consider thoughts you don't want to have, they are as involuntary as a myoclonus. not to be misconstrued as an argument against freedom of thought but since thoughts aren't entirely consciously voluntary what about indoctrination? these are thought manipulations that effectively enslave people into mindset that prevents them from exploring thoughts. it's one thing to think openly about the content of indoctrination and it's another to be subject to indoctrination. this is part of why freedom of religion is such a farce.

is postmodernism worse than religion? in many ways yes, religion at least makes the first step in attempting to make sense of the world before peddling bullshit. "why are we here m8? goddidit." pomo is literally strategies for peddling bullshit with a focus on "bullshit and fact are equally valid", "there is no fact or bullshit", etc. it's far more mentally dangerous than religion, even most religion doesn't deny the difference between fact and fiction, religion just got what's fact and fiction wrong. pomo is also far more insidious than religion, while religion's moves are fairly overt, pomo disguises itself as skepticism while subverting reason.

The protein CHIP unfurls anti-aging activity


Not only does our way of life determine how long we live but so too does our genetic material. Of particular importance here is a genetic program that is controlled by the insulin receptor. A team of researchers has now discovered how protein aggregation affects this genetic program and thus triggers aging.

Genetics of brain structure and intelligence.


>Genetic influences on brain morphology and IQ are well studied. A variety of sophisticated brain-mapping approaches relating genetic influences on brain structure and intelligence establishes a regional distribution for this relationship that is consistent with behavioral studies. We highlight those studies that illustrate the complex cortical patterns associated with measures of cognitive ability. A measure of cognitive ability, known as g, has been shown highly heritable across many studies. We argue that these genetic links are partly mediated by brain structure that is likewise under strong genetic control. Other factors, such as the environment, obviously play a role, but the predominant determinant appears to be genetic.

The neuroscience of human intelligence differences.


>Neuroscience is contributing to an understanding of the biological bases of human intelligence differences. This work is principally being conducted along two empirical fronts: genetics–quantitative and molecular–and brain imaging. Quantitative genetic studies have established that there are additive genetic contributions to different aspects of cognitive ability–especially general intelligence–and how they change through the lifespan. Molecular genetic studies have yet to identify reliably reproducible contributions from individual genes. Structural and functional brain-imaging studies have identified differences in brain pathways, especially parieto-frontal pathways, that contribute to intelligence differences. There is also evidence that brain efficiency correlates positively with intelligence.

Quantitative Genetic Modeling of Variation in Human Brain Morphology


>The degree to which individual variation in brain structure in humans is genetically or environmentally determined is as yet not well understood. We studied the brains of 54 monozygotic (33 male, 21 female) and 58 dizygotic (17 male, 20 female, 21 opposite sex) pairs of twins and 34 of their full siblings (19 male, 15 female) by means of high resolution magnetic resonance imaging scans. Structural equation modeling was used to quantify the genetic and environmental contributions to phenotypic (co)variance in whole brain, gray and white matter volume of the cerebrum, lateral ventricle volume and associated variables such as intracranial volume and height. Because the cerebral cortex makes up more that two-thirds of the brain mass and almost three-quarters of its synapses, our data predominantly concerns the telencephalon. Genetic factors accounted for most of the individual differences in whole brain (90%), gray (82%) and white (88%) matter volume. Individual differences in lateral ventricle volume were best explained by a model containing common (58%) and unique (42%) environmental factors, indicating genes to be of no or minor influence. In our sample, genetic or environmental influences were not different for males and females. The same genes influenced brain volumes and intracranial volume and almost completely explained their high phenotypic correlation. Genes influencing gray and white matter overlapped to a large extent and completely determined their phenotypic correlation. The high heritability estimates that were found indicate that brain volumes may be useful as intermediate phenotypes in behavioral genetic research.

Common genetic variants associated with cognitive performance identified using the proxy-phenotype method


>We identify several common genetic variants associated with cognitive performance using a two-stage approach: we conduct a genome-wide association study of educational attainment to generate a set of candidates, and then we estimate the association of these variants with cognitive performance. In older Americans, we find that these variants are jointly associated with cognitive health. Bioinformatics analyses implicate a set of genes that is associated with a particular neurotransmitter pathway involved in synaptic plasticity, the main cellular mechanism for learning and memory. In addition to the substantive contribution, this work also serves to show a proxy-phenotype approach to discovering common genetic variants that is likely to be useful for many phenotypes of interest to social scientists (such as personality traits).

On the genetic architecture of intelligence and other quantitative traits


>How do genes affect cognitive ability or other human quantitative traits such as height or disease risk? Progress on this challenging question is likely to be significant in the near future. I begin with a brief review of psychometric measurements of intelligence, introducing the idea of a "general factor" or g score. The main results concern the stability, validity (predictive power), and heritability of adult g. The largest component of genetic variance for both height and intelligence is additive (linear), leading to important simplifications in predictive modeling and statistical estimation. Due mainly to the rapidly decreasing cost of genotyping, it is possible that within the coming decade researchers will identify loci which account for a significant fraction of total g variation. In the case of height analogous efforts are well under way. I describe some unpublished results concerning the genetic architecture of Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
