Did you ever finish Neon Genesis, Blonde? Curious what you thought.

Has anyone started watching HBO's new show, WestWorld? I highly recommend it!

Nope. I stopped watching cause I couldn't get over how whiny the kid was. Great concept though, would love to see a sort of post-apocalyptic-defending-the-world-from-aliens-with-megabots TV show picked up by one of the networks here in the US though.

Great show. Made me want to bang a robot Evans Rachel Wood, and think about becoming an android pimp. Somebody's gotta do it! Really looking forward to tonights episode. Really liked all of the misdirection.


I just started watching House of Cards. A bit late, but it's difficult for me to get into political dramas after every middle-upper class white person I know popped a boner for the West Wing. The show is really charming and entertaining. The depth of the characters as well as the portrayal of some who are being completely honest/naive individuals totally getting played and the high-level players like Underwood (as far as "life is a stage"...) is really incredible.

Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behavior and information processing.

Love HoC. Enjoy the ride.

I just finished Narcos a couple weeks ago. Absolutely fantastic. Currently half way through Luke Cage and thoroughly enjoying it too.

Popped up elsewhere on my feed I might watch it, do you think machines will ever experience anything?

Nature has been able to produce "machines" that experience things. I have no reason to believe Nature (us) can't also create machines that experience things, eventually.

Experience has been able to produce things that look mechanistic!

Edit : I agree that we will create things that experience things, we can create a super-experiencer.

I just don't think that you can do it with digital computing, or moulding it out of clay (if you take out all the organic compounds out of the clay)

True, I think it's just semantics.

Quote:
We create tools, then mold ourselves to the use of them. Reality isn't some thing in front of us on a proscenium stage; it's a movable feast. We are creating technologies, then we are the technologies. Our heart isn't like a pump, it is a pump. Our brain isn't like a computer it is a computer. Until the next thing comes along. Now you're a neural net. Now you're an information system.
I like this quote a lot ^

So you suspect it is something about organic compounds/biological matter is the key to consciousness? That is very interesting if so because I don't think I have seen the question structured this way. That is a very legitimate argument I think.

If that is true, you would have to admit there is some kind of a "magical" element to biological/organic matter that allows for consciousness to develop.

I'm a monistic idealist http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idealis...sical_idealism
Quote:
Monistic idealism holds that consciousness, not matter, is the ground of all being. It is monist because it holds that there is only one type of thing in the universe and idealist because it holds that one thing to be consciousness.
But also a physicalist, I don't think any "element of reality" missing from tomorrow's physics and their solutions.
Quote:
"Physicalism" is sometimes treated as the formalistic claim that the natural world is exhaustively described by the equations of physics and their solutions.
I think the equations of physics describe fields of consciousness completely


As DP said earlier the properties of carbon and water might be the only thing capable of "phenomenal binding" binding is not well understood but I'll try again to explain it sometime.. William James first thought of it. not that carbon and water are the only thing that are capable of being experiential.


"if physicalistic idealism is true, then strictly speaking all consciousness, and only consciousness, exerts causal power, effectively mediated by what we normally recognise as the four forces of nature, or perhaps, ultimately, the vibration modes of higher-dimensional branes of M-theory. Only the physical has causal efficacy; and consciousness discloses the intrinsic nature of the physical."

Hopefully this helps a little.
One thing exists, it's consciousness, it's (mathematical properties are?) described exhaustively by physics.

I'll drop physicalism before accepting materialist physicalism



saving this for later

--------
the only way cognitively to grasp the values of the diverse subjective properties of the physical fields of experience that the solutions to the formalism encode is personally to instantiate bound neuronal superpositions of these subjective properties.

Just wanted to chime in to reaffirm that Westworld is incredible.

If you're not watching it yet but you have the means, you're messing up.

If you're talking about Neon Genesis Evangelion then I did watch that series.
