Let’s give people with winter depression (seasonal affective disorder, SAD) LOTS OF LIGHT and see what happens!

This is an update to my previous post that said that our preprint is out. :) The paper was accepted with very minor changes, so you might already know what it says if you saw the first post.

Here is the link to the paper: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/da.23281

Here is the twitter thread explaining the paper: https://twitter.com/FabienneSand/status/1561060644803252224 

Again, Jan Brauner and I are very thankful to the LessWrong/EA communities, which have inspired this first study (there will be more) and through which we have found funding. In particular, thank you Eliezer Yudkowsky for helping us find funding and for inspiring the study with Inadequate Equilibria, David Chapman for inspiring us with these two posts in the Meaningness blog, Raemon for inspiring us with this LessWrong post and everyone who discussed with us setups they have tried. <3

Huh. I guess you can find money on a busy street just waiting to be picked up if it's in a currency nobody cares about. Alternatively, you can even find real currency if it lies at the basin of a slope nobody's incentivised to travel down.
