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

That is precisely how life works. Intrinsic values/gestalts are unscientific. They are superpositions. Lip Service. If I spend equal amounts of time on my hobby and on having sex - you could say that I prefer them equally. And if I keep ditching my tennis partner every time my girlfriend calls me - ...

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

Well thanks for the answer but I was asking about the disjunction? A bit puzzled how you get Joe being of the class 'Elephant' equates to false? Look at the code. I am not getting to anything. All the text is the output of the program provided. Joe is probabilistically either a squid or an elephant...

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

Set theory is problematic. It's riddled with Russel's paradox.

I am not sure why you need a new way to re-define values when utility theory does a fine job at it.

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

Wouldn't this depend on what kind of 'Or' you are using, inclusive or exclusive? So the answer to 2. being true or false would depend upon this. *shrug* I have merely translated the argument into another language and to the best of my understanding. Whether I have understood the original meaning co...

Re: What is the Greatest Pro of Theism?

What sort of a fugging bullshit is this, Logik? You need to bridge for yourself the issues, because you are just idle-worshipping your idol, your own voice, and you say nothing here. My suspicion is now high that you suffer badly from narcissistic personality disorder, and you are thrown into a nar...

Not really if it is all premised in infinite variations of convergence/divergence as synthesis...all rationality and free will exists as an extension of common deterministic laws.
What is that which synthesises and how does it work?
Describe its behaviour in a framework of your choosing.

And how do you "count" the act of "counting"?
Cardinals.

1, 2, 3.

Different people use different techniques in their heads.

Re: Revolution in Thought

False, Bayesian inference is subject to a higher law as further mathematical/logical laws and symbols diverge/converge to result in this framework. Bayesian inference cannot maintain itself under its own framework without requires some framework to determine it. Even the symbol nature of Bayesian i...

Re: Revolution in Thought

Actually it doesn't unless "perfect knowledge" is axiomized in some other state. I can falsify "x" event because of "y" event, and this falsification exists as "true" due to "y" event. However if "z" event comes along and proves "x" as true; we understand that "x" is false relative to "y" but true ...

Re: Revolution in Thought

So you're saying the law that man's will is not free I am saying that it's a distinction without a difference. and the corollary that follows has to be a little wrong to be right? :? It's not the corollary. It's the first law of epistemology. Unless you have perfect knowledge, your hypothesis is (i...

But falsification, as a principle, can be falsified.
It can. The falsification of falsification requires perfect knowledge.
