Our get-together in April 2024 will be on Saturday 20th, 5 to 10 pm.

We will continue answering the questions, and maybe play other games. We have a suggestion to add some tricky situations and complex decision-making to the philosophy game.

This time, let us try to avoid all processed sugar and grains from snacks. Please bring anything healthy and plant-based.

Post Party Notes

Thank you, guys, for this wonderful evening. Two new amazing people joined us.

We discussed what makes us rich (various points of view, from richness of experiences and ability to perceive the reality as it is, through the richness of senses and ability to feel, Maslow's pyramid, trusting relationships, to plainly emergency funds), whether to grant AI that became smarter than humanity some rights (that was an exciting exchange, after which we went onto a long tangent on current politics), and to which extent altruism is real (a whole range of opinions, from this is a myth to it is just a biologically developed feature in social animals). Then also, whether voting should be mandatory (with radically opposing opinions, with modern history examples illustrating what happens when too many people do not vote, voting discouragement campaigns, and staying informed without excessive time investment), after which we talked about motivating people, temperaments, drive to do things and whether and how it could be encouraged.

We planned another type of event and I will send a draft of the rules to work on it to a few people.

I made two fresh flower and herb infusions: one warm and long (6 hours) and another hot with hibiscus. I also made a tomato-high-protein-organic-tofu salad with about 17 ingredients (herbs, spices, seeds, etc.). We also had fresh strawberries, apples, loquats, sparkling cider, white wine, champagne, German beer, mandarins, and a few other snacks.
