This article has me thinking on all sorts of vtaiwan-related things, so thought I'd share:

> The thing you call anger isn’t a distinctly programmed thing, but it’s a concise information point, and it gets updated by each new experience you have to better reflect your place in the world and your understanding of reality. Essentially, what we call emotions are probability calculators. [...] it shows that if our emotional landscape is adequately trained, we can nudge our mind to align with the model of reality we want to create for ourselves. [...] If emotions really do act as probability calculators, we have to do our part to refine them and then intentionally involve them into a broader, more complete meta-rationalistic system of decision-making.


Being rational all the time isn’t going to do you any favors

Rationality is one of the most valuable life tools, but alone, it’s not enough.
