    Would you recommend any particular books or works on the history/philosophy of math (and logic)? Preferably something with newer treatments, too.

    It's still not even their own fault. The technological and social changes in post WWII America were traumatic to everyone. The rise of the nuclear family and draw of people towards urban life/jobs has not been easy to adjust to. I generally blame suburban sprawl. Suburbs are not a healthy place to live or raise a family as they are inherently isolating to both children and adults. We've had to compensate with neighborhood parks and other services to socialize our children and ourselves.

    I think that I have come across as not liking you, but it's just I think from maybe you thinking that my being inadvertently rude is just particular to you, as it is not the case at all - I'm a pro asshole to everyone tbh, when it comes to matters of debate.

    I don't consider myself to be sensitive, so I take my subjectivity over yours, since I'm the source of my behaviour, whereas you're not. It's just that I enjoy argumentation when it doesn't become 'heated'. And I also feel that I will last here, for as long as I choose to last here. I enjoy being challenged, and you have (sort of) provided that for me. So people like you will impel me to stay. If you think that my attitude stinks, then I think that it would be best to ignore me, since, whilst I'm not attention seeking, I for some reason unknown to me, I function quite similarly in that I often take contrarian stances on matters.

    Yes. As long as it's free and there's no inconvenience to you, I would like to get my hands on such software. Simple curiosity.

    Interested to see this stuff in action.

    Also, what are you meaning by being a 96? This humour gig doesn't seem to be swinging in your direction, bro. Dr Nefarious is just a villain from the Ratchet and Clank franchise fyi.

    It's cool to be quirky with your humour, but it has to make sense though for it to be effective in the slightest.

    *pulls collar away from neck* Would you like me to say that I found that funny? Because I don't know where the humour comes from, from simply imitating idiotic speech patterns of, like, y'know, like, the typical American teenager. I didn't mean to come across as being a flaming retard in my thread for saying 'one' so many times, or for not showing all that much tact, but I am a bordering T/F who is also INJ on the INTJ forum - people typically associated with disinterest towards the feelings of others, so...

    The Deep Mind paper, code, reddit discussion, and video describing strengths and weaknesses.

    (Okay, so it doesn't sound super impressive... Think I need to build something crazy myself... There's something boring about these ideas)

    Much cool! How could you provide an example of an ANN with built in trainer? I don't have any coding skill, is this required? And didn't you mean "Perceptrons"?

    You are not being obviously wrong.

    "There are key details, and nuances that are wrong"
    (Which is fairly likely, since my understanding of the subject is fuzzy and intuitive)

    What are your thoughts on this comment by Pitts:

    It must be the case, he figured, that we all start out with essentially random neural networks—highly probable states containing negligible information

    I personally suspect that decently large amounts of information are being encoded - through a somewhat nasty underlying approach (in the sense of having to use it to code something yourself).


    Read some more of the article... Yeah, analyzing a frog brain and looking for logic would've gotten awkward.

    There's always the potential of picking up ideas that might be off, that you might not realize are off because they are coherent with your internal framework... Naturally, I don't believe I suffer from such problems. LOL. But don't we all?

    I believe there is a statistic along the lines of "85% of people consider themselves above average in intelligence" (although separately, I wonder if its because they are more consistently correct in the niches they specialize in - so that where it matters to them, in terms of what they define their identity by - they are in fact above average... and that's all that they really need... You don't have to be good at everything yourself, there are other people in the system who can manage responsibilities you are weaker at)

    Do you think polymath is being? Do you think I'm explaining stuff badly? Do you think he's not addressing key weaknesses in what I say properly? Am I suggesting crazy shit?

    I'm asking whether you think I'm being obviously wrong, and what parts of my thinking you disagree with.

    (I read your document btw. Interesting. Especially if it was written more than twenty years ago)
