To be fair, all serology tests, if biased, would bias the same way. When the actual percent infected is low and population samples are small, false positives will have an outsized impact compared to false negatives. But none of these shows less than a 10x undercount.
@CheckMateHere @Price4x Scientific knowledge isn’t generated statistically. It’s generated nonlinearly by a few exceptional individuals.
Anyway, correlation isn’t causation. There are many confounding factors.
@CheckMateHere @Price4x There are also many notable exceptions - Feynman, Deutsch, many who worked on the Manhattan Project.
There’s no trend that more science makes them more left. In fact, it’s the opposite. Faculties move from left to right as you move from social sciences to natural sciences.
@CheckMateHere @Price4x Finally, confounding factors:
- Academia shelters them from the real world
- Radicalizing influence of students
- Selected and promoted based on politics
- Leftists stay in academia
- Reliance on government funding
- Indoctrination during education
@evanserickson@joerogan 1/ No apps, no noise, no guidance. Sit in a comfortable position first thing in the morning, back upright, but ok to use cushions etc.. One hour at a time, no less. Just surrender to and accept whatever happens. No energy for and no energy against. Resist and reject nothing.
@evanserickson@joerogan 2/ No effort. You’re just going to sit there and let whatever happens happen. Sixty days minimum.
If you have thoughts that’s perfectly ok. Let the thoughts happen. The key word is Surrender (to whatever is happening).
@evanserickson@joerogan 3/ Feel free to use pillows to prop up your back, knees etc., get comfy. Because it’s first thing in the morning you won’t fall asleep even if you’re in a pile of cushions.
Tell yourself when you sit down, “my job is to do nothing. I’m taking a well deserved break from myself.”
