Problem With Procrastination? Try Doing Nothing

When there’s some chore you just don’t want to tackle, every other chore seems alluring. As a friend told me, “My apartment is never cleaner than when I have a writing assignment due.” In Roy Baumeister and John Tierney’s fascinating book, Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength, they suggest the “Nothing Alternative” to this problem. That is, if you want to get yourself to do something, make the alternative to that task to do nothing.

This rule was inspired by the habits of writer Raymond Chandler. He summed up: “Two very simple rules, a. you don’t have to write. b. you can’t do anything else. When I read this, I realized that I’d been following this rule without giving it a name. Sure, sometimes I jump up and go look for a book in the stacks, but that doesn’t take long.

Fun Theory

What is the relation of available fun to intelligence? What kind of emotional architecture is necessary to have fun? Will eternal life be boring? Will we ever run out of fun? To answer questions like these… requires Singularity Fun Theory. Does it require an exponentially greater amount of intelligence (computation) to create a linear increase in fun? To put a rest to these anxieties… requires Singularity Fun Theory.

Behold! Singularity Fun Theory is in the early stages of development, so please don’t expect a full mathematical analysis. Nonetheless, I would offer for your inspection at least one form of activity which, I argue, really is “fun” as we intuitively understand it, and can be shown to avoid all the classical transhumanist anxieties above. In between, we just basically worry that, over the course of ten thousand or a million years, we’ll run out of fun. (Non)boredom at the lowest level. The Useless Web. The Fun Theory Sequence. (A shorter gloss of Fun Theory is "31 Laws of Fun", which summarizes the advice of Fun Theory to would-be Eutopian authors and futurists.)

The Fun Theory Sequence

Fun Theory is the field of knowledge that deals in questions such as "How much fun is there in the universe? ", "Will we ever run out of fun? ", "Are we having fun yet? " and "Could we be having more fun? " Fun Theory is serious business. Many critics (including George Orwell) have commented on the inability of authors to imagine Utopias where anyone would actually want to live. Fun Theory is also the fully general reply to religious theodicy (attempts to justify why God permits evil). Finally, going into the details of Fun Theory helps you see that eudaimonia is complicated - that there are many properties which contribute to a life worth living.
