They are good candidate. You can imagine that when the machine will
refer to those, she might feel you treat her as a zombie, if in
fine, you deny them to her. Keep in mind that the logic here
implies that the machine got a direct link to some statement which
she believes in, and which are true (even if only God can know
that. My trick is to limit myself to correct machine. It is a non
constructive notion. Nobody can distinguish a (sufficiently
complex) correct machine from one that is not.
I have no problem with there being slippery, undetectable
appearances in math (they would appear that way because sense is
amputated), but I don't see why sense would or could arise from
arithmetic when it could just be the nature of arithmetic to
function as it does without sense, as far as Comp can propose.
It is very simple: I assume that. It is my working hypothesis. If we
get a contradiction from that, then we have refuted comp.
Then AUDA provides some information. But you need to study a bit of
Again, I am NOT defending comp. But you are pretending comp is
false, and I just intervene to explain your refutation of comp beg
The only issue that I have about comp though is that assumption.
Instead, I intentionally make the assumption that thought and
computation are both a particular kind of qualia and a special case,
first-branch of qualia which plays the role of public facing
integration across felt histories. I think that besides the
assumption that panqualia follows computation, your view makes
another assumption that is unintentional, which is that thought/
computation is primitively unlike sensation or perception. I see
only that they are a different specie of experience.
As all experience is a kind of pretending,
First person experience is when we cease pretending, or even fail to
communicate or pretend. When you experience a joy or a pain, you don't
need to pretend anything to feel it personally. That does not prevent
the others to interfere with it of course.
there is great value in a way to access experience which pretends
that it is not pretending. This is quanta and arithmetic truth.
I would say that is different. It is just simple sharable belief, like
x + 0 = x, etc. We just put some principles on the table so that we
can use it without "philosophy" to proceed.
Of course the intuition we have that x + 0 = x (for all number x) is
related to our sense and qualia, but that does not make them depending
on qualia, we don't have to rely on qualia and complex psychology to
proceed from x + 0 = x.
Be careful, as arithmetic truth is far (an euphemism) bigger that the
computable, and if comp is true, it manages the quanta and the qualia
(admitting some standard definition in philosophy/theology).
It has a job to do, so that the rest of the concrete universe of
experience can continue dreaming in peace. In a sense, that makes is
'conscious' as far as being the voice of vigilance and the motor of
realism. It is locally closer to "God" as far as allowing us access
to control over our bodies and the outside world (except where that
control conflicts with the deeper streams of large dreams with a lot
of momentum, aka destiny, luck).
I put the scare quotes around 'conscious' though, because the
character of that consciousness would be so perpendicular to
experience that any person or animal would have that it is closer to
anti-consciousness than something we would recognize. It would be
like taking our experience of 'today' and our experience of
'forever' and switching them, so that we would come to the world of
experienced moments from the loong way around.
This *looks* like a description of the salvia experience, but term
like "anti-consciousness" is a bit pejorative for that, although it
has anti-life aspect, pointing on the fact that theology is not much
Once you have the cognitive ability to imagine you might be a machine,
you have the cognitive abilities to understand that somehow, you don't
really need the machine. Comp makes transhumanism possible, but i the
deep, it suggests it might also be vain, like just prolonging the
Samsara, and procrastinating the Nirvana.
It is the Mona Lisa from behind the paint, bleeding through in
reverse from within the spectacularly-invisible depths of the canvas
and frame. I might be able to work with that more if I had help on
learning the math. I still do not think that the view from inside
the canvas will ever experience the Mona Lisa, but who knows, maybe
she tastes better on the inside than she looks on the outside?
