Chapter 5: (Justification) Justification consists in the absence of manipulation in signals, not the absence of limitations in beliefs.
21. (Limitation) Some subjective beliefs or mental models of the world are better/worse than others.
22. (Manipulation) All signals are good to the signalers, but only some signals are justified by an audience.
23. (Doubt) Doubt is an active process, aimed at furthering our interests in which we require justification.
24. (Justification) Justification is a process in which we make it in our audience’s interest to endorse or at least not doubt us.
25. (Anticipation) Both justification and manipulation are optimized by empathetically anticipating responses.
