Re: Why Philosophers Should Care About Computational Complexity

Actually direction is relative by nature considering all intervals are directional by nature considering they measure the measurement of a phenomena away/towards a baseline measurement. Don't be a silly dualist now. When you are speaking about 'intervals' you are talking about magnitudes. Scalar qu...

Re: Pyramids of the Ancient Pre-Socratics as a Physicalization of Abstract Philosophical Theory

I don't care if I am taken seriously or not, these are "interpretations" and those "tools" you keep referencing are strictly group agreed interpretations. They are also the kind of 'interpretations' which meet this criterion: Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improb...

It's interest by large organizations is more likely about encryption/decryption purposes uniquely, and how this can be used to both spy on the 'enemy' and to determine how to hide better FROM their 'enem...

Really, then maybe you should read more considering time is relative and I Can read a book upside down and backwards at the same time... No. Really. I am trying. Reverse character order. Reverse word order. It's bullshit. "space. with left are we Thus itself. space of approximation an to conducive ...

Re: Does absolute truth exist?

That constant is error. Indeed. That is a mantra in statistics. All models are wrong some are useful . All a model could ever hope to be is "less wrong" than any other model. Of course - it' can't be any other way. The only mechanism to determine the validity of a scientific model is to test how we...

Re: Physical question

I'm not sufficiently familiar with the very specific field of "Computer Complexity" and so don't approve of explanations that go beyond being able to explain here without a degree or a large digression into a course. It's hardly a large digression. It's a trivial intuition and a useful metric for e...

Re: Physical question

I already looked at the literal architecture designs and KNOW that these are artificial.... I have no idea what you mean by 'artificial'. It solves 2048 Qubit NP-hard/NP-complete problems in O(1) e.g constant time. You can't DO that with a classical computer, no matter how you cool it. That's all t...

Re: Physical question

So while we may be able to simulate machines that act as though they are in superposition (quantum computation solves multiple problems simultaneously), we may not actually be able to make such a machine. Such machine can and has been made. https://www.dwavesys.com/quantum-computing They currently ...

Re: Ultimate Reality

I meant things like language, logic, mathematics, and the sciences. They certainly exist but have no material existence. Programming languages (which capture human intention and procedural knowledge in logic/mathematics) have a physical/material existence. If they didn't the internet wouldn't exist...

No, I say otters do not have knowledge because knowledge is only possible to human volitional, intellectual, rational minds.
Is this something you accept as axiomatically true, or do have evidence to justify your claim of possibility/impossibility?

Re: Does absolute truth exist?

Computers are not capable of doing anything without a program. Neither are humans. Toddlers would die if they weren't programmed to breathe autonomously, cry when their needs aren't being met etc...
