  • Commented on The Singularity Is Further Than It Appears
    "The anti-mechanistic argument is not even close to being proven by [Godel'] theorems." It is not the proven assertions of the theorems themselves that demonstrate the inability of an algorithmically consistent symbolic logic processor to fully replicate human thought processes....
  • Commented on The Singularity Is Further Than It Appears
    "It sounds like you're indicating something that is self-evidently true, but not describable in formal terms. In that case how can one actually say it is definitely true?" No, Godel's proposition is explicitly and properly formed in the language of...
  • Commented on The Singularity Is Further Than It Appears
    "And your proof of those two baseless assertions are...?" It's not my proof, it's Godel's. It's only when you take the time to understand it that the significance of his insight becomes clear....
  • Commented on The Singularity Is Further Than It Appears
    "Why are you assuming we cannot produce non-consistent (ie somewhat "faulty") symbolic logic processors? Maybe like, say, neural nets with noise?" If you want to say, upload your mind to a "somewhat faulty" neural net, I won't try to stop...
  • Commented on The Singularity Is Further Than It Appears
    One proof of Godel's Second Incompleteness Theorem involves the construction of a logical proposition that is self-evidently true, yet cannot be constructed by any algorithmically consistent symbolic logic processor. In order to understand this proof and recognize the truth of...
  • Commented on The Singularity Is Further Than It Appears
    The "singularity" is no less a myth than the "second coming". Both are prophecies of a transcendent future event, rooted in a fervent belief in the emergence of an incomprehensible sentient being whose wisdom will supercede anything in human experience....
