Physics is meaningless.
BRUNO: This is not necessarily the case, as physics is Turing universal. The problem is that physics has to be derived from comp. Bruno <SNIP> ROGER: You might be able to derive physics from comp. But physics can only deal with the extended (objects in spacetime) and anything extended cannot deal with meaning, mind or philosophy or thought, since these are outside of spacetime, because inextended. Anything extended is an object, can only be treated objectively. Because anything extended is in spacetime, while consciousnes and mind, being inextended must be subjective (are outside of spacetime), .In short: extended= objective = in spacetime= contingent= cannot be necessary inextended = subjective = outside of spacetime= can be sometimes necessary, sometimes contingent Also, however, now I see that Universal Turing machines can simulate consciousness-- which all that you want. But it is impossible to prove that anything that simulates consciousness is actually conscious. ignorance. - Roger -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
