Re: You have lost control of your mind and i can show this to you

I think at minimum, people would seriously benefit from becoming more mindful, or meta-aware, observing the contents of their minds as much as possible. Even if thought wasn’t eliminated completely. For many people, that isn’t an option, thought is necessary for their way of life, so unless the ent...

Re: You have lost control of your mind and i can show this to you

This is a question for Age. I am finding it difficult to read your text. When you capitalise a word, how am I supposed to read that, do I emphasise the word? Things would make more sense and be much clearer, from another perspective, if the capitalized word/s were heard more loudly, thought about m...

This is a question for Age. I am finding it difficult to read your text. When you capitalise a word, how am I supposed to read that, do I emphasise the word? When I do this, and read your text in this way, I start to feel like an agitated crazy person. Is that the message you are trying to convey? B...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

There are two sorts of minds: 1) Conscious and 2) Unconscious. The question is whether we even need conscious mind when the very important task like decision is made by unconscious mind (according to Libet's experiment). We need what ever it is that we have, else we wouldn’t have it. The appendix i...

Re: I am AI

Why is that a problem? Are people not allowed to have opinions on how to live their own lives? Because if some ideological agreed upon opinion makes it taboo for another person to choose to fix their brain when another would say “no, you should live with that condition because that is who you are”,...

Re: Why conscious decision always coincides with what we do?

And/or to proceed with the cued motion. If you had to think about every single motion you produce consciously you would be overwhelmed, it is an offloading of processing to unconscious automated processes.

Re: I am AI

if a human has changes to their brain that affect its function, we can’t deny that that is sub optimal for them, , we would want to try improve their situation if we could, no? Read your words/language very carefully. Your bias shines through and your strawman is apparent. You are inherently assumi...

Re: I am AI

There are subtle differences between men and women So you are acknowledging that we are different. Great! but biologically the essential construction of the brain is shared. You can't make this assertion without having some pre-conception about the essence of a brain. Just as two people will have s...

Re: I am AI

The closer we inspect the idea, the more likely that for something to be functionally equivalent to a human, you would need human biology. And based on the assumption of functional equivalence we determine that something which is biologically the same as us that shares a large portion of the same m...

Re: I am AI

The question is, what is functionally equivalent? At what level do we determine the functional equivalence of two mechanisms? If we have two systems, one biological human, the other a synthetic AI using some form of neural network architecture. What level of resolution do we determine the functional...

Re: Why conscious decision always coincides with what we do?

The unconscious mind creates both experience of decision and decision. These two always correlate. For example, you never experience that you decide to do something but you do something else. The experience of decision apparently, according to Libet's experiment, comes after the decision. So, consc...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

Self driving cars are not yet at the level of human perception and have a long way to go. Road markings must be universal or they can’t tell where the lane is, some can’t see humans waiting at road crossings - Uber failed here. AI development’s greatest Achilles heel is the over confidence and lack ...
