You may remember my previous post on this topic but if you don’t I am providing a link for you below. Please read that first, I went through all the trouble of putting the link to it, don’t make me regret being a nice guy. Seriously it has a lot of the necessary background information required to understand what I am going to be blabbing on and on about over the course of this post.
In this edition of the aestivation hypothesis I intend to discover if it really deserves the love I professed so openly for it after only a quick glance and once over. I have now read the full paper, done the math (not), poured through the methods, thought long and hard (15 minutes) about the results and discussion, and am finally ready to let rip with a long winded deep dive into this hot as hell new hypothesis on the block.
…..And this is where it ended way back in July of 2017. Since then I have decided I do not care. My love affair with AE was hot and heavy at first but it sputtered and died fast too. I guess always knew it couldn’t last. My heart belongs to the simulation hypothesis and it always will. I am publishing this as a Dear John letter of sorts, and to get it out of my drafts, where it has languished for far too long.
