Consider any finite set of measurements of a conscious creature's environment and its responses to that environment. Infinitely many mathematically distinct descriptions can correctly match the possible responses with the environmental conditions.
If instantiated by real systems, each of these would describe systems with seemingly heightened conscious behaviour. Some of those infinitely many distinct descriptions, however, will be straightforwardly incompatible with known physics. For instance, some theoretical descriptions might yield telepathy for some specified environmental conditions simply by retrieving them from an enormous lookup table so large that no cognizer actually instantiated in the physical universe could include such a table. Other descriptions, however, will be consistent with the laws of physics.
How is it NOT possible.
thank you that you believe my story. My friend often travell OOBs and so do I. I believe her, when she said to me, that she has spoken to an allien. She said it was on a planet not in our planet system she travelled there threw and than she saw this allien. It only was a tinny one. I didn`t see any of them when I am travelling. I only saw dragons, animals....and other things mental. I also can talk to them..
Please also, before you start with the demands for *anything* here, consider where this is posted.
mind your manners, young one.
