Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Some of my disagreements with List of Lethalities, published by Alex Turner on January 24, 2023 on The AI Alignment Forum. This was an appendix of Inner and outer alignment decompose one hard problem into two extremely hard problems. However, I think the material is self-contained and worth sharing separately, especially since AGI Ruin: A List of Lethalities has become so influential. (I agree with most of the points made in AGI Ruin, but I'm going to focus on disagreements in this essay.) Here are some quotes with which I disagree, in light of points I made in Inner and outer alignment decompose one hard problem into two extremely hard problems (consult its TL;DR and detailed summary for a refresher, if need be). List of Lethalities “Humans don't explicitly pursue inclusive genetic fitness; outer optimization even on a very exact, very simple loss function doesn't produce inner optimization in that direction. This happens in practice in real life, it is what happened in the only case we know about, and it seems to me that there are deep theoretical reasons to expect it to happen again” (Evolution) (human values) is not the only case of inner alignment failure which we know about. I have argued that human values themselves are inner alignment failures on the human reward system. This has happened billions of times in slightly different learning setups. Strictly separately, it seems to me that people draw rather strong inferences from a rather loose analogy with evolution. I think that (evolution) (human values) is far less informative for alignment than (human reward circuitry) (human values). I don't agree with a strong focus on the former, given the latter is available as a source of information. We want to draw inferences about the mapping from (AI reward circuitry) (AI values), which is an iterative training process using reinforcement learning and self-supervised learning. Therefore, we should consider existing evidence about the (human reward circuitry) (human values) setup, which (AFAICT) also takes place using an iterative, local update process using reinforcement learning and self-supervised learning. Brain architecture and training is not AI architecture and training, so the evidence is going to be weakened. But for nearly every way in which (human reward circuitry) (human values) is disanalogous to (AI reward circuitry) (AI values), (evolution) (human values) is even more disanalogous! For more on this, see Quintin's post. Lethality #18: “When you show an agent an environmental reward signal, you are not showing it something that is a reliable ground truth about whether the system did the thing you wanted it to do; even if it ends up perfectly inner-aligned on that reward signal, or learning some concept that exactly corresponds to 'wanting states of the environment which result in a high reward signal being sent', an AGI strongly optimizing on that signal will kill you, because the sensory reward signal was not a ground truth about alignment (as seen by the operators).” My summary: Sensory reward signals are not ground truth on the agent's alignment to our goals. Even if you solve inner alignment, you're still dead. My response: We don't want to end up with an AI which primarily values its own reward, because then it wouldn't value humans. Beyond that, this item is not a “central” lethality (and a bunch of these central-to-EY lethalities are in fact about outer/inner). We don't need a function of sensory input which is safe to maximize, that's not the function of the reward signal. Reward chisels cognition. Reward is not necessarily—nor do we want it to be—a ground-truth signal about alignment.

In this episode of the Real Estate Excellence Podcast, Tracy interviews Toby and Jenna Elkins of the Elkins Group at Momentum Realty. This husband and wife team have had an incredible success story in the real estate industry, closing 25 million worth of deals in 2022 and serving 67 families.    Toby and Jenna will discuss how they overcame challenges related to cold calling, working through the kinks of their business, and negotiating deals for infection reports. They will also share key strategies they use when it comes to pricing, customer experience, virtual showings for those in the military, and building relationships with lenders and transaction coordinators.    Tune in to this informative discussion with Toby and Jenna Elkins as they reveal the secrets to success in their journey through the real estate world! [00:00 - 06:29] From Navy Veteran to Real Estate Powerhouse Toby served in the Navy for 13 years and earned a bachelor's degree from Columbia College. Toby grew up in Pinetop Arizona, played college baseball, and worked odd jobs before joining the Navy. Jenna was born and raised in Boston Massachusetts, went to Northeastern University, and worked in corporate event planning for 12 years.   [06:29 - 12:43] From High School Class President to Navy Veteran Class president in high school. Internship college for six months of work and six months of school. Met significant other at a party in Arizona. Joined Navy and stationed in Maine. Got degree while in Navy. Decided to pursue real estate after Navy career.   [12:43 - 19:13] Overcoming Struggles to Succeed in Real Estate  Elkins Group was formed at the end of the first year. Jenna joined and got her license towards the end of the first year. Jenna is a people person and loves community. Covid forced Jenna to try real estate as a backup plan. Jenna is not a fan of cold calling and has difficulty with rejection.   [19:13 - 25:13] Setting Expectations and Bonding with Customers Working out deals on infection reports and helping with negotiation obstacles. Creating momentum for events by using social media. Education is key to ensure customers know what's going on throughout the process. Setting expectations upfront with buyers and sellers is very important. Different personalities or male/female situations can affect customer bond. Listing appointments can be done together, with one person talking numbers and details and the other commenting on house placement.   [25:14 - 31:27] How to Start Planning Early and Succeed in Your Deals Pricing is everything in the real estate market. Setting expectations up front is important. Educating buyers on the current market is key. It's tough when customers insist on pricing higher than recommended. Veterans should start preparing for their transition to civilian life at least a year out. There are programs available to help veterans transition from military to civilian life. Veterans should get out of their comfort zone and be vulnerable when talking to people.   [31:28 - 38:07] Building Relationships: Transitioning Between Militarry and Civillian Lives Self-discipline and structure are important for success in the real estate, as in the military, but civillians don't always have that level of discipline. Perspective is key to understanding the differences between military and civilian life. Command decisions are necessary to move forward and take action. Building relationships with people you trust is essential. Having a lender and transaction coordinator can provide peace of mind and take a load off.   [38:08 - 44:35] Finding Your Niche in Prospecting: How to 10x Your Business Through Cold Calling and Facebook Outreach Self-motivation is key to success in real estate. Building a community of people around you that have your back is important. Interacting and mingling with quality people in the industry is essential. Everyone has something to share. Effectiveness is oftentimes related to how many people know you. Making connections and showing up to events is important. Reaching out on social media can be a successful way of prospecting. Cold calling can also be effective.   [44:35 - 50:29] Helping Deployed Military Buy Homes: The Benefits of Virtual Showings and Full Disclosure We do a lot of virtual showings and have had many referrals. Close quarters on ships leads to people talking and referring each other. Techniques used for virtual showings include accommodating to the buyer's schedule, building trust, disclosing everything, recording the video, and showing the neighborhood. Be careful not to give out wrong information or say the wrong things. Online notary available for buyers who don't want to waste leave when they return.   [50:30 - 56:43] Reaching Out to Clients: The Elkins Group's Personal Touch Brings Results CRM used to keep track of customers and follow up every 30-45 days via call, text, or email Customers become friends and recommend others Customer appreciation campaigns such as sending handwritten Thanksgiving cards with a Starbucks gift card   [56:43 - 03:39] Balancing Professional and Personal Relationships as a Husband and Wife Real Estate Team Adding personal touches to business transactions. Engaging with clients on social media. Constantly educating oneself on the real estate industry. Focusing on making the business profitable. Balancing professional and personal relationships while working as a husband and wife real estate team.   [03:39 - 10:06] Navigating Conflict and Disagreement as a Team The importance of building relationships in real estate. Understanding that success in real estate requires hard work and dedication. Having a good system for decision making and problem solving as a team. Using strengths and weaknesses to negotiate. Focusing on income producing activities. Handling conflicts and disagreements between each other.   [10:06 - 16:58] Unique Challenges and Benefits of Working as a Couple Benefits include building a community of friends, creating relationships with clients, and being able to work together. Challenges include making sure systems are smooth and figuring out how to give each other space. Success is due to focusing on prospecting, meeting people, and building relationships. The Elkins Group is dedicated to the customer, honest about what they know, and makes customers feel like part of the family.   [16:59 - 21:03] "Connect with the Best of the Best: Join Our Real Estate Excellence Community" It is important to have a team of smarter people to back you up Focus on what you know and build relationships Knowledge is key, and it increases based on who you know Who you know is also important in certain scenarios Connect with the best of the best by visiting tracyhayespodcast.com   Quotes:   "I'm just a very self-disciplined person to begin with. When I have my mindset to something I'm I'm gonna get it done." -Jenna Elkins   "The key to succeeding with clients is making sure that they're informed throughout the process, and making sure that you know there's not a lot of lag in between the times that we're communicating with them." - Jenna Elkins   "Real estate is not about having a free time and doing an easy work. On the contrary, you've got to be on top of our game.You gotta work. It's a lot of hard work." -Toby Elkins "It's all about give and take. Being a good real estate agent is about negotiating to the point where everyone feels like they're winning. That's what makes a good agent, and what you need to focus on with your clients.” -Toby Elkins   Make contact with Jenna and Toby to learn more about their business and their approach, or work with them yourself, by visiting and following their social media pages:   https://www.facebook.com/tobyelkinsrealtor/ https://www.instagram.com/elkinsgroup/   If you want to build your business and become more discoverable online, Streamlined Media has you covered.

When Personalities Clash

How do I deal with a co-worker when I feel like they rub me the wrong way when we interact?  One of the hardest things on a team is when people struggle through the personality clashes that are inevitable when different people try to work together.  Yet, the diversity of different personalities working together can create such rich perspectives and deep insight into a situation.  But before you can benefit from that kind of diversity, you've got to navigate beyond the personality clash.  You'll need to find your own way through – but you can gain an awful lot of ideas from hearing how other people have done it. Thanks for asking me to share! Here's a few things to think about: SEEK TO UNDERSTAND The natural human assumption is that people think and see the same way that we do. Even though we might know in our head that's not true, our behaviors don't follow suit. We go into the default mode of our own personality and expect people to approach things the same way.   The expectation that others will be like us and need what we need can backfire and create the personality clashes you're talking about. Learning the styles and approaches of others on your team using one of many assessments can help you gain understanding and give each other more grace. Once you have some understanding, then, go deeper with more conversation and asking more questions. The kinds of questions that demonstrate that you want to listen and understand to build a deeper relationship. INITIATE RELATIONSHIP When people don't make sense to us it can be really easy to retreat or avoid. We can tend to create work-arounds so that we actually can sideline the other person from our experience. Who wants to deal with a difficult personality anyway, right? What if you change the story . . . instead of avoiding or deflecting, what if you go toward that difficult person? If someone has offended us or frustrated us and we start to retreat we can begin to tell ourselves the story that they need to fix it and they need to make it right. And while that may be true, if you keep telling that story over and over the personality clash will remain and likely get worse with some pretty tough consequences for the team. BELIEVE THE BEST When we experience personality clashes, it's really hard to believe the best about people. Usually things have been said or done that may be experienced as hurtful when personalities clash. The natural response is to see the other person as an adversary.  What if we instead started to think about the other person as an ally that hasn't yet been won over? Or a skeptic that might be able to offer a different angle or perspective that we might need to hear? It doesn't always work to navigate personality clashes on your own. Though, I challenge you to give it a go before you bring in others or create those workarounds that hinder teamwork.  LINKS TO CHECK OUT: Send your question HERE – in writing or by recording Episode 45: Reshape the Conflict Triangle Episode 50: What is Your Question Asking Style?

LORRAINE SEGAL, a former college professor who escaped "toxic academia" to start her own consulting business, will join us to discuss her college career; her consulting business on workplace conflict management and communication, entitled "Conflict Remedy", and her upcoming memoir, entitled, "Angels and Earthworms: An Unexpected Journey to Joy, Love, and Miracles". FROM HER WEBSITE: "Let's face it. We spend a huge part of our lives at work. We want a harmonious workplace – one where we feel supported and safe — a place where we want to go, where we can contribute and connect. We want to feel good about ourselves, and everyone we work with. ​Unfortunately, that's not always the case. Conflicts, grudges, misunderstandings and miscommunication can get in the way. Disagreement is a natural part of human relationship, but you don't have to stay stuck in conflict! We may appear divided on the surface, yet our fundamental desires and fears are basically the same. Believing that what we do has purpose and meaning, knowing our ideas and feelings are respected — these are basic needs we all share. The good news: It is possible to feel good at work. I help managers, leaders and staff transform difficult situations. Through workshops, training and individualized coaching, I teach practical and spiritual skills that help you communicate more effectively, resolve conflict and support productivity. ​Her latest project, a memoir called: Angels and Earthworms, an unexpected journey to love, joy, and miracles, is about her  transformation from miserable self doubt to self-acceptance, true love, spiritual awareness, and right livelihood." conflictremedy.com

Political hurling. Speech vomit. Lack of listening. These are all things we're so used to right now. Especially in these few months after election season. Fights, exchange of words, and hurling abusive words at one another have sprung up from having different views from one another and the inability to reach a common ground. The failure to see that we're different people with diverse backgrounds and, as such, would have different views on a topic. I invited my good friend, Mike Kelly, on the show to unpack a better approach to courageous conversations and even disagreement, after he published his book, Leaderfluence: Secrets of Leadership Essential to Effectively Leading Yourself and Positively Influencing Others. Mike shows that people are so hung up on their opinions and views that they often don't want to hear another person's point of view. "A lot of this problem comes from human beings mentally positioning themselves against other human beings. They say ‘I won't listen to you because I have my own ideas. My mind is already made up, and this is how things should be.'" - Mike Kelly. In this episode, we discuss how humans can boldly speak about sensitive issues in a respectful and courageous way without being myopic about our views. Mike on decision-making and challenging our base assumptions Mike advised us to slow down and take more time to think instead of reaching a potentially irrational decision. "When a heated conversation topic arises, if we just took the time to slow down and think, the world would be a totally different place." - Mike Kelly. He also gave ways to think and how to get time to think. Mike on how to react to a view you disagree with, especially on social media. As a Native Analog, Mike said if someone left a comment on social media he disagreed with, he would prefer to give someone a call or take them out for coffee. He doesn't believe in the back-and-forth exchange of words on social media, and he'd rather not say anything on social media and just prefer to speak to the person privately. Mike believes in communication; the receiver is the most important part of it as well as their feedback. Role Play of a “Courageous Disagreement” We went on to role-play an actual conversation: me as a “pro-choice woman” and Mike as a “pro-life black man” and how he could respond to me ranting about my disagreement about the cruelty to women concerning abortion. Some realizations from this exercise? The interesting thing I noted is how he took his time to respond by pausing. He didn't immediately respond to my character's rant/ vent. I believe he did this because he was trying to ensure that she was done talking, and he wanted to not speak out of anger or say the wrong things. He found common ground and showed empathy for her friends involved. Mike on how to disagree but still have a productive conversation "When we hear each other, we're in a good place. A place from where we can start talking about 'what do we do about this" - Mike Kelly. Mike feels some of the best things that have happened or been put in place have yet to be done by people who agreed. He feels people should find a way to understand one another's opinions and learn to respect them. It would interest you to know that...

I've been getting a lot of questions lately about the 2023 Zenith of the “WE,” so today I'll give you a recap.The 3,000-year pendulum of Western Civilization* is energized by two good things that oppose each other: Every 40-year “ME” cycle is driven by the hunger for individuality and freedom of expression.Every 40-year “WE” cycle is driven by working together for the common good.We begin each of these cycles with the best of intentions; but then we take that good thing too far – all the way to the zenith at one end of the pendulum's arc – and begin to mourn what we left behind. 20 years up to the zenith, 20 years back down; then we begin our 20-year journey up to the opposite zenith; then 20 years back down to complete the 80-year roundtrip.There are two reasons why so few people say, “Hey, I remember this!” 1. We don't notice the truly important when we are distracted by the merely urgent.2. The pendulum is in the same position – headed in the same direction – just once every 80 years. How often do you listen to a 90-year-old when they say, “Back when I was 10 years old…” The 40-year “ME” cycle that began in 1963 was built on individuality and freedom of expression. That “ME” zenithed in 1983, then it slowly deflated until 2003. That's when we began our current “WE” cycle. And like every “WE,” it began with the beautiful dream of working together for the common good. As we reach the zenith of that “WE” – 2023 – we see the consequences of taking “working together for the common good” a little too far.Okay, a lot too far.Every zenith of a “WE” cycle is a time of intense opposition and strong beliefs. We feel that anyone who believes differently from us is stupid and evil and must be stopped at any cost. 1783 – The Revolutionary War ended on Sept. 3 with the Treaty of Paris. We spent the next 5 chaotic years writing and adopting – state by state – the Constitution.1863 – The middle year of the U.S. Civil War. Lincoln was assassinated 2 years later. Chaos.1943 – The middle year of America's involvement in WW II. Two years later we nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki.2023 – (We shall see what we shall see.) Religiosity is often intense at the Zenith of a “WE” cycle. Disagreements often result from a lack of definitions of terms. For the purposes of this discussion, these will be the definitions of Faith, Religion, and Religiosity:Faith is that in which you place your greatest confidence.(Science? Politics? Deity?)Religion is the formalizing of a code of orthodoxy around your Faith.Religiosity is weaponized religion.Every reader takes from a text what he brings to it.“It is a short distance between believing you possess an error-free message from God and believing that you are an error-free messenger of God. The minute I believe I know the mind of God is the minute someone needs to tell me to sit down and breathe into a paper bag. As a general rule, I would say that human beings never behave more badly toward one another than when they believe they are protecting God.”– Barbara Brown TaylorYou can get ancient scriptures to confess to whatever you want if you torture them long enough.“The history of the world shows that when you place an ego and a spiritual text (the Bible, Torah, Quran, Bhagavad Gita, etc.) in the same room, the text will always end up in a chokehold.”– Michele Miller-NelsonEvery person deserves to be remembered for their finest moment.
