Dwarkesh Patel Can you explain that quote? “The fact that sex exists is biologically very pessimistic.” Tyler Cowen Anything that stands still gets destroyed by parasites or destroyed by something. So you've got to randomize and change what you are through sex. That's like the clearly winning model for at least larger things. That's a sign nothing survives for that long. So the existence of sex is the most pessimistic thing there is, I find that ironic. So I'm not the pessimist, sex is.
