It’s going to be a challenge cranking-up the chaos level this week, but away you go. First, in accordance with the emerging ritual, a few miscellaneous links.
Moldbug mainstreaming watch. Also (quickly) from in and around the reactosphere: Triune critique. This post captures the quintessence of Anissimovite new reaction.

On Jaynes and ancient mythology (from 2010)
IQ and autism (some facts).
Some critical guidance for qabbalists on the mind-traps of small numbers.
