Chile: Canadian Blogger Commits Suicide in Santiago

Roberto Arancibia meditates (ES) on the suicide of Canadian blogger, Chris McKinstry in his Santiago apartment. McKinstry was the founder of Mindpixel, a digital mind modeling project. His final blog post, entitled “Very Serious Thoughts on Suicide” quotes, among others, Charles Caleb Colton: “Suicide is a fundamental human right. This does not mean that it is morally desirable. It only means that society does not have the moral right to interfere.”

    Unfortunately Chris was depressed due to all of academe debunking his theories of AI. Still, it’s sad that one should take his life when proven wrong. I’ll miss him.
