I am a transhumanist interested in life extension, psychometrics and intelligence augmentation, artificial wombs, animal uplift, existential risks, AI alignment, geopolitics, cryptocurrencies, network states, and DeSci. I have been intermittently blogging since January 2008. Some of the concepts I came up with include the Age of Malthusian Industrialism and the Katechon Hypothesis.

As of 2024

is my main blog and I am also active on Twitter at @nooceleration.

You can contact me via email or Twitter.

This page has a list of what I consider to be my posts over my blogging career.

My personal website akarlin.com hosts a comprehensive archive of my work from 2008-2023. It is intermittently updated with project updates, book reviewspodcastsresearch, predictions, travel writing, and sundry miscellanea that doesn’t fit into Substack.

Best Posts

This page contains a short list of what I consider to be some of my best articles from 2008-2024. See the archives at akarlin.com for a more comprehensive compendium as well as the Predictions section.

Readers interested in the “deep lore” of my blogging career, as well as the positions I currently espouse, I would directly to my pseudo-book Intellectual Restructuring from December 2023.

Supporting My Work

The best way to support my blogging is to just buy a subscription to my Substack and/or my Twitter.

I also accept cryptos at the following addresses:

Although Substack does not currently support crypto, I will be happy to manually comp subscriptions in return for $BTC, $ETH, or stablecoin payments equivalent to the current $60 price of a yearly subscription. Just let me know in advance via email or Twitter, and send me the transaction ID. I also accept payments on the major ETH L2s such as Arbitrum, Optimism, and Polygon.

You can also send me fiat through Paypal.


I am the victim of a persistent campaign of smears, libel, and harassment from a former Neo-Nazi called Oliver D. Smith (ODS) at RationalWiki, as well as at lesser known wikis, blogs, and forum posts.

My standard response is to direct readers to my statement on this as well as the CancelWatch article about this individual.

Biosingularity is preferable to paperclips or Idiocracy

I prefer a Biosingularity to AI paperclips or a dysgenics-driven Dark Age.
