Mr. Yudkowsky;

Thanks for posting some of your ideas, a few days ago, regarding infinite
computing. It's a lot of food for thought. I am one of the very few
"cosmological Singularity" buffs on SL4, or Extropian, or Transhumanist
lists. I suspect that a colossal computational "power" like one of Moravec's
Neutronium Computers, or a Linde variation of a Tiplerian mini-collapse might
be needed to reboot the human condition. Yes, I am serious about this being
somehow, necessary, to set things right (hearing the shaking of heads on that

Interestingly, enough, in Edge 83, (March 2001) Lee Smolin at Tufts
University, postulates Intelligent Life, finally interweaving itself with the
"topology" of the universe, to permit continued computation. That is
certainly a new avenue to consider.

Thanks Again,
