I've reached a point in my life where my Truman Show boat has hit the painting Zane Lowe BBC Radio Interview Part 1 by Kanye West (Ft. Zane Lowe)

Referring to the famous scene at the end of The Truman Show where Truman’s boat hits the side of the enormous dome where he is held captive, proving once and for all that he is living in a fake world.

This sentence is arguably the most meme line of the interview

Why philosophers should care about computational complexity Rap Genius is Hiring: Help Us Annotate the World by Rap Genius Engineering Team

Sick essay by Scott Aaronson

One of his most interesting points surrounds the question of what it means to “name a number”. In what sense is 243112609 − 1 “the largest known prime number” when I can easily “name” a prime larger than it: “the first prime larger than 243112609 − 1”!

Both pick out unique positive integers, and both are unambiguously defined and prime. It’d take a long time to find the digits of “the first prime larger than 243112609 − 1”, but it’d also take a long time to print out the digits of 243112609 − 1!

To Aaronson, the only distinction – and therefore the key reason we think one number is “known” and the other isn’t – is that the decimal digits of 243112609 − 1 can be written out in polynomial time and the decimal digits of “the first prime larger than 243112609 − 1” cannot.
