@mhoye Ooh, sort of a Rationalist rogue faction of "Paradise Lost" Techno-Satanists who have sworn opposition to the creation of Roko's Basilisk (God), but only in the most Rational way possible.

Like… what made that inevitable? Why, of all the possible ways to map computer science time with physical time, did almost all the important algorithms end up in P, when PH \ P is such a larger universe in terms of absolute number of problems?
And this is definitely the cannabis talking, but isn't it odd how the algorithms that are most important to us tend to be the ones contained in P, with most of the rest contained in BQP or EXP, and not in the truly outlandish wilderness of things like O(n!).
It may be the cannabis talking, but I also can't shake the feeling that this is lurking near the edge of Decidability and the Halting Problem. I wonder if there are any useful connections between P vs NP and computability.
