Hi! I'm [@ftlsid](https://twitter.com/ftlsid). This website contains my notes on the many intricacies of our world. I also write more flowery stuff on substack at [cybermonk](https://cybermonk.substack.com). My main ongoing project is an attempt to build [[Artificial general intelligence|artificial intelligence]] by studying the computational and physical underpinnings of biological evolution. I'm working on adding more information about this project to this site. I've also recently worked on [[Simulating Turing machines|writing algorithms on Turing machines]] and [[Soap films|simulating soap films]].
