Re: How and why the Hierarchy of Value formula is sound

I never discussed GAI in my book, a book which was devoted to spelling out the structure of Ethics. As I said in a recent post, I did discuss AI. The difference between AI and GAI is agency and self-adaptive goal-driven behaviour. If you are discussing AI then you should have absolutely no problem ...

Re: Facebook or Philosophy? Which is more Dangerous?

You burden every question you ask with a meta question about that one's own usefulness? Should there not be a third about why every question needs to be of such worth? Hardly. I am merely conscious of intentionality. I am aware of my objective - I question whether any particular course of action br...

Re: POLL 3 on the validity of a simple argument on Joe the Squid

So if there is more than one logic then how do you decide which is the most efficient or rigorous one ? Completeness. Lambda calculus is Turing-complete and therefore it's a super-set of all logics. The criteria you have listed above are rather subjective and appear to be based on simple preference...

Re: The Liar's paradox

What was the reason for this kind of response and not just answering the OPEN clarifying questions asked to you instead? Are you incapable of answering the questions or did you just not want to? Or, did you learn some thing and/or have some thing revealed to? Why do you NOT just answer the clarifyi...

Re: The Liar's paradox

Once again you mean 'you' do not care. By the way how do you receive solutions if you do not find them yourself? What do you call that process when you finally become aware of the solution to problems? If you call receiving solutions from reading them in a book or by hearing them spoken to you is n...

Re: The Liar's paradox

You forgot to add that they are as yet unsolved 'TO YOU'. Just because a solution has not yet been shown TO YOU does NOT mean that that thing has as yet not been solved and the solution does not yet exist. Depending on your definitions, the so called "problems" of justification or criterion in epis...

Re: POLL 3 on the validity of a simple argument on Joe the Squid

You asked me to articulate in Lambda calculus.I articulated. No, you didn't. You didn’t understand. You don't know that. You've admitted you don't know anything. That is why I am speaking English to you. Because you don’t speak Lambda calculus. You don't know that. You've admitted you don't know an...

Re: The Liar's paradox

This is further supported by your “zero possibility for the facts to be wrong” attitude. You're being illogical. You are dogmatic. Nothing dogmatic in a logical truth. Unless you could prove it's not a logical truth after all. I can determine that I don’t know anything So you know you know nothing....

Re: The Liar's paradox

Good point but you likely misunderstand it. So, yes, you misunderstand it. Try again: a fact is an event or thing known to have happened or existed . It's pretty straightforward. If you can't get it right, then you're insane (I'm assuming from the start you're not a complete idiot). No. Zero possib...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

I think you will find that human needs will NOT have a more measurable impact on the environment than any other species needs has an impact on the environment. Human wants , however, is a completely other issue. Human wants have a very measurable impact, and eventually a very demonstrable impact, o...

So all facts are past tense? Interesting... Good point but you likely misunderstand it. If they are past tense then you can’t witness them OR validate them yorself? So, yes, you misunderstand it.

Re: POLL 3 on the validity of a simple argument on Joe the Squid

I don't understand all this philosophical charabia. Please try again using Lambda calculus. EB OK. You should've said so sooner! I was only defaulting to English because I thought that's all you can speak. This is the philosophical notion of dualism defined in Mathematics. Meaning.png Anybody compe...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Could it be that egoism is what got us to become the dominant species on Earth? We took responsibility for our well-being in our own hands. We got smart and we met our needs. We are victims of our own success. The exponential growth of the human population has made it very difficult to meet human n...

Re: Contradictions in Thermodynamics; Perpetual Motion through Angulature

Space itself cannot curving. Space can be curved only by masses (like Sun) Einstein's GRT. That's not a description of the curvature.... That's steering the discussion away from the particular (description of the curvature of space) and into the general/non-specific. Sorry, . . . . you want to say:...
