Entropy

Dear fellow coma victims, By my experience things do slowly improve by repetition. I have been actively monitoring my stress since coma. I'm always thinking about my body and if it's working properly, immersed in thought, and wondering about the source of my stress. I never feel relaxed. At peace. I feel my consciousness is [...]

Diploma

Dear fellow coma victim's, I'm doing a second post graduate diploma in computing, this time in Artificial Intelligence which is an interest of mine, potentially a vocation. I hope so having worked in IT for many years. I have posted about AI, there is a category called artificial on the coma page. I think AI [...]

U3A

While visiting my mother in Paynesville I attended a U3A (University of the 3rd age) discussion group my father regularly attended before his passing. It is concerned with current affairs. So I raised these three topics, it was my father's job there to manage the discussion. 1. Global Warming Caused by burning fossil fuels - [...]

Cinema

'Ghosts in the Shell' is a film about the human brain transplanted into a robot. They are doing similar things today in medicine, amputees brains controlling artificial limbs. Things like manufactured arms and hands being controlled by the amputees nervous system. As the films subject suggests perhaps one day we will be able to transplant [...]

Artificial

AI has access to the sum total of human knowledge recorded digitally online, along with that information's precise processing according to human systems. Mathematics or medicine come to mind. We are developing AI surgeons to operate on human beings. Previously I thought AI the mechanical perfection of Human Intelligence. The world abounds with digital sensors, [...]

Plato

In the time of Plato, his 'theory of forms' suggested that to see wasn't merely the act of observation but also of knowing, gnosis, perhaps self awareness. Gnosis represents non material observation, thought. That was our last evolutionary leap forward I believe. It gave us the modern world of thought, education, politics, art... I think human thought [...]

Artificial 

We  watched the film 'transcendence' again recently and can't wait until it becomes a reality. We are making several films about artificial intelligence of late, another 'ex-machina' come to mind in which we impose human thoughts like murder into AI, I guess you can't have love without killing. I think technology needs to take another leap forward [...]

Sequel

A concept for a sequel to 'Space Odyssey 2001' and 'Transcendence', both films depict the arrival of artificial intelligence and describe the relationship between consciousness and matter. The material world versus the non material world. The world of objects versus the world of thought. For both films consciousness is the product of electrical signals in the [...]
