There are a huge number of ways in which Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) can take over the world, rendering humanity essentially useless

Max Tegmark – Life 3.0

Nov. 2017: Interesting exploration of the implications of AGI, faulted by the typical preference of Analytical Philosophy for construction of intricate, highly¬† theoretical scenario’s, under-emphasizing basic challenges (in the case of AGI: lack of robustness / antifragility).

Jun. 2023: The writer has leveraged the recent rise of LLMs like ChatGPT to further fuel fear about an AGI break-out – even though other AI-related risks require more imminent attention.

Mixed flour sourdough bread


  • 500g white flour
  • 300g wholewheat flour
  • 100g rye flour
  • 300g starter (120% hydration, activated)
  • 500g water
  • 18g salt


  • Mix flours and water
  • Leave for 30 mins
  • Add starter and salt
  • Knead. In my BOSCH 1600W MaxxiMUM machine c. 9 mins:
    • c.4 mins slow (“speed 1”)
    • c. 5 mins fast (“speed 3”)
  • Let the dough rise for c. 8 hrs
  • Shape (I shape 2 batons from this amounts)
  • Let rise for another 90 minutes- 2 hours
  • Bake in pre-heated oven at 230C for 45 minutes, with cup of water at the bottom and extra moisture from the plant sprayer
    • First 15 mins: put the baking sheet with the bread on the low oven rack, with another baking sheet on top
    • After that, remove the top baking sheet and move the bread to middle rack for the final 30 minutes

  • I use a bit more wholewheat compared to Das Brot.
