Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

It means that the direct graph nodes having the GUIDs of (PHYSICALLY_EXISTING} AND {CONCEPTUALLY_EXISTING} can define their direct paths to {THING}. So lets suppose (PHYSICALLY_EXISTING} has GUID 1 and {CONCEPTUALLY_EXISTING} has GUID 2. What do (PHYSICALLY_EXISTING} AND {CONCEPTUALLY_EXISTING} mea...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

Natural language is formalized such that GUIDs are place holders for the unique sense meanings of natural language words. Fine. Let the GUID of {THING} be 0. What does that mean? It means that the direct graph nodes having the GUIDs of (PHYSICALLY_EXISTING} AND {CONCEPTUALLY_EXISTING} can define th...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

THING is not a meaningless string,, it is the root of the tree of Analytical_Knowledge. ^^^^ THAT is all gibberish. You said that the meaning of "thing" is.... stipulated by its relation to other finite strings. So is it stipulated by its relations to other strings; or is its meaning stipulated by ...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

The root node needs no English description to have all of its essential meaning stipulated by its relation to other finite strings. Pete, what does the meaningless finite string "THING" mean if it's related to the finite strings "kjdhqkjhdkjqwhdk", "jadhgfjkfhahgdfjhgdfjkg" "uhidhgiuhzgiuhdroiudhrt...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

As with the whole system the meaning must be build up from meaning postulates. Every finite string is 100% totally meaningless except for its stipulated relations to other finite strings. Yes! So the finite string {Thing} is meaningless. And the finite strings you relate to {Thing} (be there 1 or i...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

It just knows that it is the base class of these two mutually exclusive classes: Physically_Existing, Conceptually_Existing. Quit stalling. If the meaning of the English word "thing" can be expressed as a relation between finite strings, then express it. If the meaning of the English phrase "Physic...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

Do you understand that anything and everything is a thing? It would be the universal set from set theory if set theory did not stupidly allow a set to be a member of itself. It doesn't matter if I understand it - you are trying to make your algorithm understand it. Explain to your algorithm the sem...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

The root node has a hierarchy of sub-types and a list of properties. These are all outgoing directed graph edges. Acyclic directed graphs can't be infinite anything. Pete, what is the semantic of a "thing" ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Von_Neumann%E2%80%93Bernays%E2%80%93G%C3%B6del_set_theory It ...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

That is already happening when the Trump administration defines alternative-facts. Gullible fools buy it and the rest know it is deception. So why do you think the gullible fools are going to believe your algorithm? It depends on how nutty they are. Gullible fools currently don't believe in the mat...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

{Thing} is the root of the knowledge tree. It is defined by its constituents. If the root node is defined by its constituents, then what are the constituents defined by? Infinite regress? Oops. The root node has a hierarchy of sub-types and a list of properties. These are all outgoing directed grap...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

That "feature" would otherwise result in the extinction of the species. Only after Tarski has been refuted and a universal True(X) predicate derived, can automated systems screen out the damn lies of the news cycles. And what happens when humans decide "fuck your system!" and we change "true" to me...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

When ever atomic meaning of each word is anchored in a GUID, this kind of deception ceases to be possible. If the meaning of each word is anchored to a GUID, then the word "dog" is no longer composed of the meaning of the words used to define it - it's now composed simply by the GUIDs which referen...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

The meaning of natural language is so flexible that the meaning of a word can deceptively change from one sentence to the next. That's a feature, not a bug. That "feature" would otherwise result in the extinction of the species. Only after Tarski has been refuted and a universal True(X) predicate d...

Re: Overcoming Quine's objection to the analytic / synthetic distinction

The word {dog} has its meaning composed of the meaning of the words used to define it. That's recursive. What meaning do the words which define the word "dog" have? Recursive with depth and breadth comprised of millions of meaning postulates until the exhaustively complete human degree of comprehen...
