Optimization of Ponies

imagesI don’t think I’ve ever pondered the existence of My Little Pony fan fiction, and if I did I surely wouldn’t have imagined that I’d ever read any of it. But through a random link on Reddit’s singularity subreddit last December, I found a diamond hidden in the rough and feel compelled to share it with other science fiction fans:

I am continually intrigued by the concept of “optimizers”. I posted a new link to reddit to drive some discussion on the topic, the responses were pretty interesting:

Yeah I wasn’t sure I was going to like this story, but I did. It was really interesting and made me think about a lot of things.

I almost ignored this because of the My Little Pony slant – but that would have been a huge mistake. I just got to the 3rd chapter and it is a very entertaining read. Very impressed. Author did a great job.

Oh my, that was… strangely haunting.

What about you — would you choose to emigrate? Are we destined for an “optimizer” fate no matter how much we try to prepare against it?

Read for yourself.

  1. Read the first chapter, can’t tell what the “destined to become optimizers” reference means.
