@maralorn so that's why we don't let philosophers play with bucketloads of instant sunshine or artificial intelligence?
@zeri Because they could be wrong about if, where and when it would be appropriate to light a sun?
Nah, I think we do that because they could be right …
@maralorn so erm when I say "instant sunshine" I'm talking about plutonium.
@zeri Yeah, I got that. I just (badly) tried to stay in the metaphor.
