— I cant belive


Consider what we do now to address the issues of running multiple different JavaScript modules, we start up a new Node process, we start up a thread pool, we have a massive amount of auxiliary systems to run and maintain those, and eventually overhead generated by them is so massive that most of your electricity bill simply has to do with a Node process starting or exiting, not even the execution of the code within it

— Basically, what I have done, is make JavaScript as low level as possible, removing all high level abstractions that generated that overhead, all while making the existing mechanisms obsolete

— And, of course, you won’t even know the difference at the end of it, and can write your programs just like you always did

— Maybe it's possible, in theory, you can check what variables are accessed and align/order execution, but it will cost billions and billions of lifetimes🤤

— LOL, yeah, even though I know it is all 100% possible to achieve, it is still a massive amount of work and research that no one has really done yet, it is new territory for the language, and me as a developer personally
