Ready to get your brain squished up and shoved through a pasta press? Because this episode is gonna cook your noodle. Lee Rubenstein, writer and teacher and very smart dude, is here to explain the theory of Roko’s Basilisk. A basilisk, obvs, is a mythical creature that kills you if you look at it. And Roko’s version is an artificial intelligence from the future that may or may not be punishing us retroactively because we hindered it’s creation by talking about it.
