Re: Truth can be understood as math

Like I said, C++ is expressive enough to create a fully functional human mind. Could not possibly, since programs do syntax, not meaning. I am 64 and have two software engineering patents: https://patents.justia.com/inventor/peter-l-olcott Of what relevance are those two facts? You could be 90 with...

Re: MUSLIM SENATORS IN THE US...WTF !

Ban Sharia Law. Now, who wouldn't happily get on board with that? Funny you should ask. A while back I seem to recall a news story. Someone wanted to ban Islamic courts. You know who filed an Amicus brief on behalf of the Muslims? You'll never guess. Orthodox Jewish rabbis. Turns out that in orthod...

Any system you build is build on top of arithmetic. Trivially demonstrable when I ask you about the cardinality of your knowledge-base.
When I asked him about that he said I was insulting his mother. Go figure.

Re: Simplest possible notion of a formal system

It seems that you are intentionally playing head games and are not interested in any honest dialogue. That's entirely up to you. I prefer a lighthearted and give-and-take kind of interaction, and a degree of self-awareness on each person's part. You initially wrote that your system was all about ma...

Re: Simplest possible notion of a formal system

First of all the body of conceptual knowledge contains everything that anyone could ever say about anything in any language what-so-ever. Once you understand this, then (AND ONLY THEN) do we move to further elaborate that a tiny subset of this is everything that anyone could ever say about mathemat...

Re: Simplest possible notion of a formal system

When I refer to the entire body of conceptual knowledge why the Hell would you think that I am only talking about arithmetic? Is the restriction of your system with to arithmetic of the natural numbers the same as TA then? And as far as why I'd ask. YOU are the one talking about the Halting problem...

Copyright 2019 Pete Olcott Curses! I was just going to steal this and publish it as my own. Ok Pete, seriously, I cannot distinguish your system from what's known as True Arithmetic, the set of all true statements about the integers.

Re: Eliminating Undecidability and Incompleteness in Formal Systems

The Sanskrit page doesn't cover the technical aspect. Starti with Panini grammar. I believe I already acknowledged your general point; but I can't understand the specific reference to such a narrow technical area, what some ancient writer said about an ancient language. I am afraid I can't dive int...

Re: Eliminating Undecidability and Incompleteness in Formal Systems

Sanskrit is basically a formalised (axiomatised?) natural language by virtue of Sanskrit speakers voluntarily adhering to Pāṇini's grammar rules as best as possible. Or would that make Sanskrit a naturalised axiomatic language? I read the Wikipedia article on Sanskrit and I did not discern any conn...

Re: The Number System as a Model of The Process of Evolution

I think wtf is being an oracle - by way of averaging out of society. Am I raising or lowing the average by leaving? I shouldn't ask. Or am I perhaps a black box that solves the Halting problem?
