Note: these are some rough, preliminary notes on mental security, defined as the art and discipline of keeping one's mental software free from hostile external influence. Or in other words, having a mind able to achieve its own goals, rather than goals of, say, Moloch or other people which happened to be around. This is supposed to serve as a reference point for discussion and further thought. It's definitely not an explanation or a tutorial.
- this is dangerous business, and not one that human minds are designed for
- however, necessary to do anything which is far outside
of the Overton window of agency
- if you are doing such a thing, you might just as well ignore the risk, because if you fail at security your cause is doomed anyway
