Call this gate "R". It's universal, assuming we have fan-out (trit-copying) and the constants. That is, a circuit of R's can be built
to represent any function f: T^n -> T where T = {-, 0, +}.

*People, as a group, really aren't interested in learning any more than the bare minimum they need to
get what they want. That's what MOOCs are really up against.*
True, and the people who are motivated tend to rely on each other, if not for support, at least to have
peers who are similarly interested. It's like the fact that people whose friends are obese are more likely
to gain weight.
If your motivation/work ethic/freedom-from-external-distraction level is 9-10, then you're fine working

Explanation of NYC's 9/11 Boom.
View 911-real-estate-boom
Real estate (like oil in the short term, cf. "oil shocks" of the 1970s) is extremely supply-inelastic,
such that a 1% loss of supply might cause prices to go up *a lot* more than 1%-- possibly 10%, 20%,
even 2x. The result of this is that a destruction of real estate supply will actually increase the
*total* market value: a cataclysmic loss of 5% of NYC's real estate would drive prices through the roof
and make the price level look "healthy" (from the buyer-centric perspective common in the US when it
comes to housing). But no value was created! Much was destroyed.
The 2000s run-up in NYC's housing costs was driven largely by speculation after 9/11. While we
*actually* had 12+ subsequent years with no major domestic terror attacks, there were a large number of
(esp. foreign) speculators who expected future attacks in major cities and bought lots of RE in
You can’t perform that action at this time.
