Response to Ettinger vs. Yudkowsky


I'm probably missing something buried either shallowly in your post or deeply in the site you reference, but I'm having trouble understanding how Yudkowski and his several websites "has done some great things so far on carrying the cryonics torch forward" while at the same time you contradict that with "how it leads to people opting out of cryonics and hence allowing themselves to be killed".

You may explain, if you wish, and if there is an explanation. That there is a satisfactory one I doubt, since Y advocates and promotes an upcoming Singularity AI and its "Singularity Institute" promo vehicle, with no controls on same, which logically would evolve to have no regard or care for humans, cryopreserved or otherwise, uploaded or otherwise. Waste of planet space for two, waste of bandwidth for the other.

And I have heard he is signed up for cryonics. For what reason, I cannot figure.
