Re: The Wrong God

I have no interest in teaching anything to you - all I do is write about how I see/experience things. And yet I learn a new perspective if I listen to you. Remember it is you, not me, that is chiming in on discussions with other people and is thus starting a conversation between us. Yes. In an atte...

Re: Facebook or Philosophy? Which is more Dangerous?

Actually they are replicating what they see. The "why" is the child existing as an extension of his environment because he knows he will feels separated if he does not follow this mirroring process.

Re: Facebook or Philosophy? Which is more Dangerous?

Actually is just center's both. Action for actions sake does not solve any real problems it even creates them...hence your premise is faulty. It's not for action's sake - it's for result's sake. As to passivity, it has its time and place. If a man is at rest, content with what he is presented with....

Re: Facebook or Philosophy? Which is more Dangerous?

Second problem-solving, through the act of reasoning, is an inherent philosophical activity universal within the human condition. People practice philosophy (the love of knowledge) regardless of whether they intend it or not. Competence without comprehension. A 5 year old washes their hands. They d...

Re: An argument in favor of free will

Just think of a moment that you put yourself in a mental state just focusing on options (and nothing else) while the options are indifferent to you. You need to give me an example. I have many systems in place to prevent analysis paralysis. if I don't have an answer in the moment, at the very least...

Actually you are not flexible if you reduce it strictly to lambda calculus or type theory.
Do you have any other idea on how to deal with precision problems except with Mathematics?

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

Automating everything is a mundane task of repeating the same thing. It's not. Every problem is slightly different. If it were repetitive - a computer could do it ;) The problem is that you are lazy and cannot find meaning in the simple things. I can find meaning in simple things. But I like travel...

If it does not have to, then we really don't need it do we?
And you are free not to rely on it.

Me? I hate mundane and repetitive tasks - I get bored.
So if I can automate it - I will. I am lazy like that.

Plus computers don't whine like humans when they work 24/7/365.

Flipping a coin twice is not a solution to this problem.
Why not?

Here is a generic algorithm that randomly selects 1 out of N options: https://repl.it/repls/SecondaryPaltryAu ... tionsystem

Update N to your liking.

What could possibly prevent me from flipping a coin N times?

I'm learning new words all the time, so I fail to see where would be the problem except in your own mind. Yes, you are learning new words FROM the dictionary. Just read and memorize the whole thing!

Re: (LOGIC) Formalisation of a modal argument

Efficiency breaks down to simplicity, and this simplicity of space observed in the nature of logic observes that not all logic can equate to computer computation as logic itself is directed movement at its roots. You mean a vector? Or a tensor? One can have a logical system that is elevated above a...

Re: An argument in favor of free will

What if you fall in a situation that deciding about flipping a coin or not has equal weight? Then I will flip a coin twice. Anywhere I have N options (where N > 1) I have a choice. I can break the deadlock by flipping a coin log(N) times. The only way to rig the game against me is if the water and ...

Re: The Wrong God

Being rude is a sign for an inferiority complex, but never for wisdom. It is also a sign of somebody who values their time. If the dynamic posits that you are the teacher and I am the student, it's entirely at your own discretion whether you should spend your time towards my education. If you can o...
