NRx as detached hyperrationalistic bloviating adjacent to more circumspect rational analysis, floating in some bizarre orbit around the manifold cognitive biases and failings that maybe ought to necessitate a more incrementally analytical view of the world, though often instead perverted but in any case bring us eyeball to eyeball with uncertainty and in particular decision problems and the almost hilarious inability of humans to coordinate on such problems, plus the weirdly circuitous ways that inability induces both this bizarre futurism AI-obsession and simultaneously a fear that we won't be able to get the control mechanism right most of which turn on really weird uses of infinity/zero concepts that mean we're probably wrong because even the best of us are super bad at that.
