Bostrom, Nick. Are you living in a computer simulation?

Bostrom, Nick. Where are they? Why I hope the search for extraterrestrial life finds nothing.

Tomasik, Brian. Does vegetarianism make a difference?

Tomasik, Brian. How to interpret a physical system as a mind.

Tomasik, Brian. Is there suffering in fundamental physics?

Tomasik, Brian. Which computations do I care about?
