Meet Up: Buffalo Meetup

StonesOnCanvas 14 February 2013 06:42PM

WHEN: 17 February 2013 04:00:00PM (-0500)

WHERE: SPOT Coffee Delaware Ave & W Chippewa St, Buffalo, NY

(Apologies, for the short notice.) Last meetup we talked about making sure your beliefs "pay rent " by constraining anticipation. This time we'll talk about specific examples of ways some beliefs may not even really count as beliefs at all:

Belief in Belief - http://lesswrong.com/lw/i4/belief_in_belief/ Professing and Cheering - http://lesswrong.com/lw/i6/professing_and_cheering/ Belief as Attire - http://lesswrong.com/lw/i7/belief_as_attire/

The concepts are pretty similar so I thought I'd just lump them together for this meetup. Read what you can (3 posts is a lot, so don't worry about it if you don't get around to it). In any case, I'll do a cliff-notes summary for everyone. Anyone can attend. Feel free to invite friends who might be interested. We'll also play some cool games too. We're meeting at SPOT this time (I'll have a sign so you can find us easily).
