One wisdom above all others consists of formulating questions which by their
wording eliminate the answers. Your question starts:
"What do you mean by "...our..."?
The classic reply: "Who is asking?" -- It is you and me and all "who"
*we*can consider normal minds to converse with.
I try to be patient as long as I am around, but cannot take seriously a "LM"
that 'knows' everything 'unknowable' and TELLS US all in an interview. It is
all still in 'our' mind (imagination?) *content*.
Why do you not 'extract' everything at once? Why piecemeal small portions
of epistemic enrichment? All questions discussed on this and any other forum
could be answered. Why are we so shy? (Maybe life would be intolerably
boring knowing all the answers at once?)
(I got it:
it is the 'mathematically discernible' gap ...so is it a limitation? and
only its 'fears', 'hopes', (=suggestions, fantasies?) we(?) in our feeble
mind work/content can produce similar unreal ideas.)
Is the 'mathematical' included to justify the imperfections of a LM?
- No, I did not really ask that.
Why did a LM not disclose 'itself' 3000 years ago? with ALL the answers? Why
still teasing us even now? A Sadist Loebian Machine!
Does it have 'rules' on 'how much' to disclose in an interview? Who's rules?
the Allmighty? but that is the LM itself!
You see, I am confused. (ha ha) good for me.
Wishing you the best
