Re: Any science of logic?

I explained it in the very next paragraph! I explained that the sentence was targeted at my interlocutor's understanding. That's interesting. In other words you made an explicit claim whose truth value and/or coherence depend on the reader. That is, if your interlocutor is reading it, it means one ...

Re: Any science of logic?

But HOTT, just like any branch of math, is a symbolic system. It says nothing about the universe. This is where you are wrong. Any system for which we have a state-space model is an example of Mathematics saying something about the universe. It predicts how the system is going to behave. I'll let y...

Re: Any science of logic?

Because I said 'the universe is a computer' I thought I had given you enough to deduce that everything within the universe computes also. Yes. You said the mind computes but is not a computer . That is your exact quote. What do you mean? You are waving your hands about ontology but you are not maki...

Re: Any science of logic?

And yet - you failed to take in any of my responses, digest them and attempt to communicate in what way they fell short of your expectations. I am many things but a mind-reader isn’t one. Ok, that's fair. Let me take a run at this post. I said I was trying to determine if Speakpigeon was looking fo...

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result.

Well now we are in complete agreement.

Lolwhat? Give me a link. Don't want to fight with you. Thank you to the individual who clued me in to who you are. I was silly enough to have been concerned about you. Shows what a sucker I am underneath the cynical exterior. I don't know if you have any clever ideas. You are unwilling or unable to...

Re: Any science of logic?

You said brains compute but are not computers. What exactly do you mean by that? If brains are not computers but they compute, then they must do something IN ADDITION to computing. Is that your point? I said I was trying to determine if Speakpigeon was looking for ontological answers. I was doing t...

Re: Any science of logic?

I gave you 3 examples of things which dry clothes which are not clothes dryers. If you care to elaborate on what you are asking - maybe I can be more precise in my response. You said brains compute but are not computers. What exactly do you mean by that? If brains are not computers but they compute...

Well then answer it for my over-simplified mind. Perhaps your wordy and convoluted posts are a manifestation of your wordy and convoluted thinking.

Re: Any science of logic?

I really think it's much easier to focus on the functions which you deem non-computational. I'll give you one... autonomous goal-setting. Wants/desires. As usual, a pile of word salad instead of a direct response to my simple questions. Someone privately pointed out to me who you are. I'm glad you'...

Re: Any science of logic?

You are not understanding me. I did not claim that the brain IS a computer. I do not make ontological claims of any kind. I claimed that the brain DOES computation. Ooh! I'll take the other side of that one. First, a semantic point. You say a brain does computation, but that it's not a computer. I'...

Re: Is There such a reality as non-X for any and every X?

Yes. But those worlds may not themselves be 'consistent' nor 'complete' to persist beyond fragments. What do you mean by consistent and complete as applied to worlds? Aren't you aware that those terms apply to formal symbolic systems and NOT to models of those systems? You' are as confused on this ...
