What I’m doing now (as of May 26, 2024)

I research the physics of social interaction. For humans—

—and also for aligned AIs.

Get notified of my next event: chrislakin.events. (If you’d like to host an event together, let me know.)


I facilitate the shift from insecure attachment to secure attachment. I charge based on results, and I try to do all of it in a single evening.

(I would like to be able to facilitate 100% of this shift in a single session, but currently I’m only able to facilitate a fraction of it in that time.)

I charge “25% of the value you get from it, as assessed by you in 3–12 months” in dollars (or equity). For example, if you determine it was worth $50k to you, then you pay me $12.5k. But if you don’t benefit then you pay nothing.

My session with Chris was significantly more productive than the last 6 months of professional CBT and talk therapy I did combined.
