sorry:




What i said is that it is THEORETICALLY POSSIBL to create a robot with the same 
functionality, and subject to the same statement of faith from my side.

That you perceive is accesible to us by your words. You say that you perceive. 
With these worlds you transmit to us this information "craig says that he 
perceive"..

>From my side, The belief tat you REALLY perceive is a matter of faith

Hi Alberto G. Corona 
 
The subject is the perceiver, not that which is perceived.
 
For example, consider:
 
"I see the cat."    Here:
 
I is the perceiving subject, cat is the object perceived.
 
When the subject experiences seeing the cat, the experience is personal, as are 
all subjective 
states and all experiences.
 
However, when he afterwards vocalizes "I see the cat", he has translated the 
experience 
into words, which means he has translated a subjective personal experience into 
a 
publicly accessible statement. 
 
All personal experiences are subjective, all experiences shared in words are 
objective.
Any statement is then objective.
 
Computers can only deal in words (computer code), which are objective,
so computers cannot experience anything, since experience is wordless 
(codeless).

Hi Albert,

    Memory is necessary but not sufficient. It the the content of memory and 
how it is sequentially ordered  that matters. "I am what I remember myself to 
be." 



in my own terms, this is a metacomputation (interpreted computation) operating 
over my own memory. The possibility of this metacomputation comes from 
evolutionary reasons: to reflect about the moral Albert that others see on me.


This singularity is by definition because no other lived the same life of 
ourselves.


    No, because we could never know that for sure. It is singular in the sense 
of "only I can know what it is like to be me" is exactly true for each and 
every one of us. The result is that I cannot know what it is like to be you. 


That's why this uniqueness is not  essential


But up to a point it is not essential. We can be made accustomed to other 
ourselves.  Most twins consider each other another self. We  could come to 
consider normal to say hello to our recently created clones. Although this 
probably will never happen.



    Please elaborate! Try to speculate a situation where it might occur. There 
is something important to this!


This is a logical possibility due to the nonessentiality of uniqueness of 
individuality. (Or in Bruno terms: the first person indeterminacy).  But 
probably the cloning machine would never exist. Sorry I can not ellaborate 
further....

Hi Craig Weinberg 
 
I agree.
 
Consciousness is not a monople, it is a dipole:
 
Cs = subject + object
 
The subject is always first person indeterminate.
Being indeterminate, it is not computable.
 
QED
Hi Roger,

    It is not a dipole in the normal sense, as the object is not restricted to 
being singular. The subject is always singular (necessity) while the object is 
possibly singular.

If you don't like Searle's example, perhaps the above can help illustrate that 
form is not inherently informative.
The implication here for me is that comp is a red herring as far as 
ascertaining the origin of awareness. 

Either we view computation inherently having awareness as a meaningless 
epiphenomenal byproduct (yay, no free will), or we presume that computation can 
and does exist independently of all awareness but that a particular category of 
meta-computation is what we call awareness.
Even with the allowances that Bruno includes (or my understanding of what Bruno 
includes) in the form of first person indeterminacy and/or non comp contents, 
Platonic number dreams, etc - all of these can only negatively assert the 
completeness of arithmetic truth. My understanding is that G del (and others) 
are used to support this negative assertion, and I of course agree that indeed 
it is impossible for any arithmetic system to be complete, especially in the 
sense of defining itself completely. I suspect that Bruno assumes that I don't 
have a deep enough understanding of this, but I think that what understanding I 
do have is enough to persuade me that this entire line of investigation is a 
dead end as far as explaining consciousness. It only works if we assume 
consciousness as a possibility a priori and independently of any arithmetic 
logic.
Nowhere do I find in any AI/AGI theory any positive assertion of awareness. It 
is not enough to say *that* awareness fits into this or that category of 
programmatic interiority or logically necessary indeterminacy when the question 
of *what* awareness is in the first place and *why* is has not been addressed 
at all.
As I demonstrate in the three lines at the top, and Searle tried to 
demonstrate, awareness does not follow automatically from a negative assertion 
of computability. I bring up the example of cymatics on another thread. 
Scooping salt into a symmetrical-mandala pattern does not conjure up an 
acoustic vibration associated with that pattern. Qualia does not follow from 
quanta.
Quanta, however, could and I think does follow from qualia as a method of 
sequestering experiences to different degrees of privacy while retaining shared 
sense on more primitive 'public' levels. These methods would necessarily be 
construed as automatic to insulate crosstalk between channels of sense - to 
encourage the coherence of perceptual inertial frames to develop unique 
significance rather than to decohere into the entropy of the totality.

Does anyone have any positive assertion of consciousness derived from either 
physics or arithmetic? Any need for actual feelings and experiences, for direct 
participation?
Craig
