For that last point, I think the LW community is nitpicky that we need to be more specific, but I can imagine a lengthier post that made the case for something similar to what you describe re "teamwork as a terminal value"

Great! I'd love to talk more about this at some point (maybe collaborating on the "teamwork is a terminal value" post?) [wow, that's meta].

Collaborate? Count me in! (PM me a link to a google doc once you have one going)

Sounds great! Raemon suggested to use this thread as a public jumping off point for brainstorming, and I'm cool w/ that.

So feel free to drop ideas / things below, if you already have some interesting ways to craft this essay!

(But once a doc is made, I'll definitely PM you too)

quick thoughts: there is too much information in the world to verify it all yourself. at some point you need to outsource the science-doing to other people a bit otherwise you will never get anything done. Society does this all the time, in manufacturing, in being part of something greater than yourself, working together towards a shared goal.
