Oil and water Aeons, it just dont mix. But both can coexist.
Galad - I think that you have a valid point about the state of the human mind. Capturing what we are requires far more room for ....crazy. Not only is
the shell integral to the mythology of the inner human, but the fact that the brain is a composite of many brains is integral to our methods of
I know you do not believe it Aeons, but yes what the nutters are saying is true. We are one, just parts of a bigger picture, cogs in a machine that is
not really a machine like you know it. Individuality only exists because we can not see the bigger picture..But that does not mean a bigger picture
does not exist.
As above so bellow, were never one person from one moment to another, this is seen in our feelings which are never the same throughout the day. For
me just right now in the span of an hour I went from all happy like to all sad like, and a multitude of fleeting feelings in between all that.
Just a function or symptom that the brain is a composite of many brains like you said.
Bootstrapping a mechanical construct all at once seems to be the ongoing preference, but fails to build complexity the way that the real human mind
We are analog beings, we exist only in comparison to other beings and things. I don't know are we really all that complex, is the human mind really
all that complex, or do we just think that we are, so therefore we are. Can we compare and contrast that, what if we do it with an open mind that
maybe we just might not be the greatest thing in all of existence...Can a human mind really register that concept.
These are just toys Aeons, just toys, children's toys, even the ones that go boom are still just toys for a game, there all toys for all kinds of
When you remove yourself from your inputs, and replace them with different inputs, what are you? Can you be the same thing when the pleasures you take
are based on sensory input which fails to be dynamic in nature?
When you change your inputs you change who you are. The output then so changes defined itself by it's input, nothing ever is ever the same, then once
again it becomes a multitude gathering inputs changing itself its core. It can be expressed in a couple ways I think, you can even say that the real
orderly the machines are, the many one. But it can also be, the many ones. And it can also be, out of many one. E Pluribus Unum.
Guess which ones we are. Or maybe were a bit of all three.
That being said, perhaps there is the possibility of such an experience still managing to contain the human mind. A sort of x-referencing of
sensorium. A way of referencing one sort of physical experience for a mechanical equivalent.
I always wanted to be a tachikoma Aeons, since I suck at being human, I figure hey why not. Curiosity killed the cat they say, but one can only know
when when tries it. But actually it can be done, digitalization of the human mind. I mean not now, but it can be done, there is one problem however,
it wont be human once its done.
But I suppose there probably can be a way of referencing a physical experience for a mechanical equivalent. Which once again brings us back to
trying to mix oil and water into one element, we would need more then just mechanization to achieve such a thing we would need a bit of biology and
chemistry also, in fact it is just something that might not be possible to bring into existence by it being made or manufactured, but maybe it can
grow into existence.
