I try to distill the most impactful knowledge over a long time.
I am interested in almost anything but organically gravitate towards topics like cognitive biases, psychology, well-being, epistemology, mental models, collective coordination and decision-making, rationality and effective altruism. I try to think more clearly, avoid biases, state my uncertainties and adhere to the principle, "If I cannot explain it simply, I don't understand it well enough.”
Bet: David Sinclair is gonna receive a Nobel price someday

Aliens with no scope-neglect
Imagine a possibility of an alien creature with no scope-neglect. We are living in the world where we comprehend things through singular entities. One is understood – but comparing, relating, imagining two things is harder, three even harder, five difficult, ten very very difficult. Difference between things like 1k, 10k, 100k are almost impossible for us to grasp

I think it would be a nice habit to treat birthdays with the same amount of appreciation as end-of-life farewells. Why do humans have a habit of fully communicating their appreciation only after a person's passing?

Output not equals reception
Literally almost all things you do, no matter if of poor quality, ok quality, great quality, whether super modern or outdated, whether non-conformist or pretentious—no matter what is your output—it will be received in a smooth gradient of ways: pretentious, brilliant, boring, warm, cute, repulsive, attractive, meh.
*Applies to most cases, not all cases. A small percentage will have larger fraction of some specific reactions e.g. positive. But most of the creative output creates reactions that are all over the place

Why to meditate?
It lowers anxiety; brings higher emotional control; enhances navigating through complex problems (i.e. it's making me a better designer). Read more in a guide to
How this site is built?
I use Notion with a super.so plugin to transform a Notion dock into a full functioning website. If you don’t use Notion I think it is the best solution in the space by far.
What is the most interesting and forward-thinking group of people that you are aware of?
People gathered around
What is the most important and neglected idea about the way people communicate?
The density of information. The shorter the more valuable the message is (while the creator simultaneously preserves its depth and quality). On this website, I try to use as little words as possible. 💡A quick tip: By default books are long. I often "read books" by watching authors summarizing them in a 1.5h podcast or YouTube lecture. Often it's even a better content because authors simplify idea and communicate them in the most direct way. For example, listen to Sam Harris systematically sourcing Nick Bostrom's top ideas from four of his most influential papers.

Why are you developing this website?
My grandpa knew a lot about the evolution of religions, history of Slavs, law system of Poland. But this knowledge mostly died with him. Learning can be really entertaining, for some it is addictive. I feel the need for the input (learning) and the output (communicating findings) to be connected. Each of us is a peculiar filter of this complex world. What are your foundational motivations? Which are the most valuable resources you have? What are links, ideas, personalities that influenced you to choose the path you are on? I will be transmitting my findings through this website.
My grandpa Marian knew a lot about the evolution of religions, history of Slavs, law system of Poland but this knowledge mostly went with him to the grave. When I asked him why he don’t do something with this knowledge he said there is already too much written and he don’t need to add his three grosz’s (polish penny). I think he was subjected to Learning can be one of the most satisfying things in the world, for some it is even addictive.
