Hi Bruno Marchal
<SNIP> BRUNO: Matter is what is not determined, and thus contingent indeed, at its very roots, like W and M in a self-duplication experiment, or like, plausibly when looking at a photon through a calcite crystal. ROGER: So Newton's Laws, such as F = ma, are not deterministic ? ROGER: and in which men, so as not to be robots, BRUNO: You might try to be polite with the robots, and with your son in law, victim of pro-life doctors who gave him an artificial brain without its consent. He does not complain on the artificial brain, though, as he is glad to be alive. Do you think it is a (philosophical) zombie? Come on! He is a Lutheran. Obviously, if you decide that a machine cannot be a Lutheran, few machines will be ... ROGER: I may be wrong, but I don't see how an artifical brain can have any awareness or intelligence, for these require life-- real life. <SNIP> -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
