She's not designed to optimize a single value, I saw that much. She was definitely made from the start to be a person.

I think that's a different dimension. The Valar are, like, definitely people with dumb goal systems. 

Permalink
Okay, but what I meant was that she's not built around getting some specific thing.
Permalink

That is less dangerous than if she was. I don't know how to evaluate, like, Valar-shaped risks. Or risks that what she wants could change under self-modification, presumably she can be careful of that?

Permalink
I'd assume. I haven't looked that deeply.
Permalink

We've got a few months to work with now.

Permalink
Yeah.


She says Rete can look at whatever it wants but wants that layer of filtering.
Permalink

That seems reasonable to me.

Permalink
Yeah. I'm giving it some new structures for the purpose and then it'll go do that. ETA Tuesday morning, she's huge.
Permalink

Sounds good.

Weird. He's - not the same thing as the Endbringers but more similar to them than to people, in terms of how much of the thoughts and experiences don't have human or Elf analogues. He has amazing senses, lots and lots of them, and ridiculously good precognition, and is paying attention sort of all the time to everything, and he can see parahuman powers, like - shards clinging to people. Don't ask me shards of what. I think he knows about alternate dimensions and is paying them attention too. He's - really really sad and sort of just going through the motions. Something is horribly wrong - like he's half-dead? and it's the half that does, like, long-term planning and ambitions and creativity.

...okay I don't know what to do with that.
Permalink

Yeah me neither. 

Permalink
Anything about why these motions and not different motions?
Permalink

Might just be inertia? This is the thing he was doing when he lost the planning facilities? He wasn't thinking about it at the time - I only do surface thoughts -

Permalink
We're assuming he's not a cape? If he were a cape getting half-dead would be a candidate for a trigger event, although I guess it could be a second trigger.
Permalink

I really don't think he was ever human. I suppose we don't know if nonhumans can trigger - Dragon's not actually a cape, right -

Permalink

So maybe he's an alien. He might not even be from this dimension, he can definitely go between them.

Permalink
Should you ask him for a ride home?
Permalink

If we're still overmatched yeah, I'll do that, petition the Valar to help. But it wouldn't be my first choice.

Permalink
So Dragon is still plan A, okay.
Permalink

The Valar are really the wrong tool for this job. Better than nothing but it's really not their thing.

Permalink
What would they do?
