from the 1900 page suicide note of Mitchell Heisman

It is a test of whether America can be true to itself.

The first superhuman AI might merge all of the computational power on the internet into its own power, master all of the significant information on the internet, and then reorganize the entire global brain of the internet so that it “wakes up” as the global mind of God.

From this late biological phase, I count myself as, among other things, genetic replicator, eukaryote, animal, vertebrate, gnathostome, chordate, mammal, primate, ape, Homo sapien, and Jew.

I took Gilbert’s recording of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier, eliminated all time gaps between the tracks, and listened repeatedly in a loop.

But wait a minute. Why am I doing this? Ah, yes, now I remember the punchline:

I’ll try anything once!

(according to Mitchell’s wishes, the website will be ‘kept up as is, free for access for all’)
