I'm a philosopher in the Effective Altruism movement working to establish a new "Science of Qualia". My foundational work is now available, at https://goo.gl/GKqi5X.

This has been the most difficult and important thing I've ever done.

I'm excited to move on to the next stage of the project. Any donations I receive will go toward further development of the ideas in this work- foundational knowledge about qualia & valence, and its implications for ethics, AI safety, and existential risk.

Goals
$38 of $100 per month
If I hit $100 per month, I'll know that there's a solid foundation of people who care about consciousness research enough to chip in a few bucks toward it.

This matters a lot, especially when building something new.
