Re: The Simulation Argument

If it ever became possible to create virtual reality/digitise consciousness ... I must point out that you are conflating two different things. This is very common in discussions of the simulation argument. 1) We could create super duper virtual reality indistinguishable from reality. For example yo...

Re: The Simulation Argument

Its just a matter of perspective. From experience of this 3rd party intelligence (22yrs worth) I cannot to this day truly discern between whether God is 'divine' or whether it is indeed some form of technology, indeed an A.I. (note my previous post above) I don't think our one-post-wonder friend is...

Re: The Simulation Argument

I will answer to your polite and constructive questions. I have a question. Suppose I'm walking down the street and a guy standing on a soapbox tells me that I'm nothing but a thought in the mind of God. God made the world and made me. God is everywhere, knows everything, can do anything. God makes...

Isn't that just logical AND?

Re: Assumptive Logic

This is because mathematics is a sub set of logic and so therefore needs logic in order to justify all of its axioms I haven't followed this thread but this sentence caught my eye. Didn't Gödel definitively prove that math isn't a subset of logic? Math transcends logic. Gödel's work destroyed the h...

10. P Vs. NP is its own solution to its own problem as a process of definition.
If P = NP you just divide by P to get 1 = N. QED.

Conceptual truth is a set of stipulated relations between meanings mutually defining
each other semantically comprising the body of conceptual knowledge.

Re: Does anyone here actually understand formal proofs of mathematical logic?

Yes, I am aware of it. It's part of model theory. I am arguing ultrafinitism. As usual. Was not aware that's your usual viewpoint. I'm a big fan of the work of the late Ed Nelson, the most prominent serious ultrafinitist. But arguing against the use of the infinity symbol in the extended real numbe...
