what does it mean to value our survival?
let's say that i want to continue living, or that i want everyone currently on earth to continue living. what does that value look like, in a formalized format?
in my goal-program framework, i can see two ways to implement this:
- embedded: we make the goal-program contain either a full copy of myself/earth, or enough information to re-find it
- physical: we somehow make the values point to the real world — and then determine what counts as the thing and/or locate the thing we care about within it
some constraints apply:
i believe there is some work towards the physical solution, so part the reason i tend to focus on the embedded solution is that it seems a lot less explored.
