TBH when I heard about the Unrealized Gains bill my first thought was how to game it to get reimbursed for losses during the bear cycle and then hold through the bull cycle, only claim losses long term. https://t.co/zFYWaLoDFK

@vgr “Technological surrender” is an oxymoron ?
@vgr Wow, your jargon-fu is incredible. 🤩 I see what you mean, now. Interesting. Maybe Bitcoin maxis are surrendering since it’s apathetic to the rising tide (uranium/nuclear). And not forward thinking enough to see how fusion disrupts the comforting incentives. TF is “dynamic hay
@vgr (Because technology is just another name for knowledge [eg we are mostly just bio-tech on a water substrate, consciousness aside], and knowledge isn’t a perpetual motion machine, so surrender is at best [relative to goal] suicide, and at worst Darwinism [oops you did it again])
@vgr I’d say that isn’t faith, because they’re your friends you have a good /explanation/ for why they’re your “friend” (in quotes not for scare quotes but b/c this is the example). Faith isn’t about explanations, it’s about not needing/wanting an explanation.

@vgr Also, isn’t this just “faith.” Faith is more acceptable than surrender, but it’s more or less a synonym epistemologically. Tangentially related is the question of where institutions fit in this: https://t.co/X8Aq3HxTuU
