I am ever more in favor of this as a longterm policy for the universe.



This is basically what utilitarianism is about, isn't it? Sounds good. I can live with that. Er, kind of.


And what the fuck is with that votey?

I mean, mostly but with a lot more bleak terrible implications than normally get owned to about the system.

The votey looks fine on mobile but.. yeah. That's some noise.

Perhaps I'm dense but I don't get this one at all.

Is this some sort of visual punning on the second law of thermodynamics and the "heat death" of the universe?

It's like one of the Vsauce episodes where they talk about the smiley-face AI super-optimizer. (As opposed to the paperclip optimizer.)

It's another one of Zach's dumb (read: great) stories where stuff just kind of happen.

In this case there's an entity, which seems to be all-powerful, whose goal is to maximize happiness in the universe. I don't think Zach took thermodynamics into consideration here.
