I am not sure I can understand this, even if there is some genuine analogy.Think of it like π, except that instead of circumference anddiameter, there is eidetic-figurative and entopic-literalpresentation modalities.

`Pi = ratio of the length or a circle and its diameter. That is`

`understandable.`

`"eidetic-figurative and entropic-literal presentation modalities." is`

`not.`

The dreaming number are usually very big concrete number. They dream by encoding computational state of person, relatively to some universal number, which are encoding universal machine relatively to some other one, and the initial one can be chosen arbitrary. Those are not symbolic number, but real encoding number, a bit like the genome if you want. Why would that result in a dream?

`Because I work in the comp theory where we come to the idea that`

`consciousness can be manifested by abstract relation between numbers,`

`as they emulate computation. We have already said "yes" to the doctor.`

It seems shrouded in obfuscating self-reference. Why would anythingthat has been encoded ever need to be decoded if the machine canfluently process the encoded form?

`To store what we learn. The DNA plays already such a role at the`

`molecular level. It illustrates also a digital encoding and decoding.`

Why would it need any other form - especially if it is all made ofnumbers?

Nobody needs a universe. Why do we do babies?

`The "truth" is that we have them, we cannot really avoid them. It is`

`like the prime number and the universal machine. Once you have zero`

`and + and *, you get Platonia, and a lot of mess in Platonia. It is a`

`logical consequence.`

What I am saying is that if you are going to invoke a possibility ofdreams, that has to be grounded in the terms that you are laying outas primitive. Why would dreams leap out of mechanical relations?

`It is a logical consequence, once you accept the idea that you might`

`survive with a digital brain.`

Even if there was some purpose for it, how could that actually takeplace - what are the dreamings made of?

`Ontologically: nothing take place. All the computations are there.`

`Some emulate self-observing machine and the math explain why they have`

`to be beffudled by existence and conscience.`

My view is that it may be the case that everything that is notmatter across space is experience through time - by definition,ontologically. There is no other form or content possible in thecosmos. Numbers are experiences as they must be inferred bycomputational agents and cannot exist independently of them. What myformulas do is to propose a precise relation between dream-time(including logical algebras) and matter-space (including topologicalgeometries). To do this we need to invoke a continuity between themwhich is a perpendicular axis which runs from the literal (tightequivalence; induction is accomplished through linear arithmeticlogic) to the figurative/metaphorical (loose thematic association;induction is accomplished through linear logic as well as ellipticalcross-context leaps).

I don't believe in time, space, cosmos, matter, ...

Aristotle invented modal logic to treat in the quantitative way non reductive qualitative notion.What I am saying though is that *any quantitative treatment ofqualitative experience is an unrecoverably catastrophic reduction*.

`I agree with this. Comp prevents to do such a reduction about what a`

`machine can be and can be capable of.`

Modal logic can make a toy model of experience, by removing all ofthe experience and replacing it with a meaningless variable.

Why meaningless?

It is to say 'here, instead of your baby, let's just call it'consumer of diapers and milk' and design a nursery based on thestatistics derived from that consumption.

`No, it is the complete contrary. I see your point, but it is eaxtly`

`that type of reduction that is prevented by comp. Even for machine, we`

`can no more reduce them to their third person description. They do`

`have a soul, even after-life, etc.`

What is needed is a way to reference phenomenological qualitieswhich expresses not merely non-comp, but explicitly asserts qualityand a view of the universe from the perspective of irreduciblequality.

`You have to postualte them, and to postulate matter, and to postulate`

`a relation, and non-comp, and that is neither satisfying, nor working.`

`It introduces difficulties where there are already enough, imo.`

Bp & p, or if you prefer provable(p) and true(p),provable and true are not first person qualities, they areepistemological quantifications. First person would be more likegreat(p) and superior(p).

?

gives a modality which can provably be shown qualitative, and non formalizable in arithmetic. It leads to a logic (know as S4Grz) which describes something which is absolutely impossible to reduce to any number relations or even anything third person describable notion, even infinite one.That doesn't mean it is qualitative, only that it is so obscurelyarithmetic that arithmetic itself cannot quantify it.

`But the machine still can refer to it. So I don't see why this would`

`not work. It would not work if you reduce a machine to its body, but`

`the divergence between Bp and Bp & p disallow such a reduction.`

What quality does this modality have? Is it shiny? Is it spicy? Doesit get tired?

`The modality has no quality. It describes qualities. You might do a`

`confusion of level. It is a bit like the confusion between the string`

`"s(s(0))" and the number s(s(0)).`

You might think I just described it, by Bp & p, or by "provable(p) and true(p)", but this is not the case, as I use some of your intuition about truth, which cannot be arithmetized by itself, by a famous result of Gödel and Tarski (independently). It happens that we do have a good intuition of many truth, and machine can indeed describe better and better approximations of the truth concept, but the limit of it, used here, cannot be. So by using both the comp hypothesis, and by studying simple (Löbian) machine (simpler than us) we can develop a formal (quantitative in some sense, at some level, from some point of view) theory concerning the non formal, and even non-formalizable-at-all-by-the-machine, qualities that machine can still refer about. And this can be used to explain why machine are forced to be befuddled by the subjectively-real apparent gap between third and first person attributes.It seems like you are missing the obvious. Awareness is not justabout knowing and navigating a set of logical conditions. That canbe accomplished easily without any awareness. Experienced qualitiesare orthogonal to knowledge and procedural evaluation.

`I can understand that "navigating a set of logical conditions" can be`

`done without awareness. Awareness or knowlegde arrives when the`

`navigating embed the navigator in truth, or in a reality. There is a`

`fixed point, and it is explained why this is felt as a personal non`

`communicable experience.`

> Let the ignoring and insulting begin! > We don't need that here, I think, nor anywhere. An insult is almost always equivalent with "I have no argument". I agree.

`I know. You are wise. And we agree on many things, but we are working`

`in antipodal theories. I think you have reductionist conception of`

`machine, to be franc.`
