A New Kind of Knowledge Representation Is Coming to Be!

VideoImage

Link to video

The project is now coming to conclusion (finally). In this video I show an example knowledge molecule being ‘examined’ by the knowledge representation.

I’ve hidden the other actors in this demonstration and have simplified the instrumentation to preserve my priority on my work.

Be patient! It won’t be long now… I have the theoretical underpinnings already behind me. Now it’s only about the representation of that work.


Men And Their Semantics – Turning Meaning into Legos

language

Semantically speaking: Does meaning structure unite languages?

This work is a dead end waiting to happen. Of course it will attract much interest, money, and perhaps even yield new insights into the commonality of language, but there’s better ways to get there.

What’s even more sad is that they, who should know better, will see my intentions in making this clear as destructive criticism instead of a siren warning regarding research governed/originating through a false paradigm. These people cannot see or overlook the costs humanity pays for the misunderstandings research like this causes and is based upon.

It’s even worse in the field of genetic engineering with their chimera research. The people wasting public money funding this research need to be gotten under control again.

I don’t want to criticize the researcher’s intentions. It’s their framing and methodology that I see as primitive, naive, and incomplete.

I’m not judging who they are nor their ends; rather, their means of getting there.

“Quantification” is exactly the wrong way to ‘measure/compare semantics; not to mention “partitioning” them!

1) The value in this investigation that they propose is to extrapolate and interpolate ontology. Semantics are more than ontology. They possess a complete metaphysics which includes their epistemology.

2) You cannot quantify qualities, because you reduce the investigation to measurement; which itself imposes meaning upon the meaning you wish to measure. Semantics, in their true form, are relations and are non-physical and non-reducible.

3) Notice also, partitioning is imposed upon the semantics (to make them ‘measurable/comparable’). If you compare semantics in such a way then you only get answers in terms of your investigation/ontology.

4) The better way is to leave the semantics as they are! Don’t classify them! Learn how they are related. Then you will know how they are compared.

There’s more to say, but I think you get the idea… ask me if you want clarification…

Science As a New Tower of ‘Babble’

1024px-Complex_systems_organizational_map1280px-Complexity_Map.svg

Complexity – a patchwork quilt of misunderstanding and confusion tied together ‘by hook or by crook’.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/By_hook_or_by_crook

Complex systems are the result of our collective blindness to the simple interconnectedness of our universe.

Why is the emerging view of our universe – no longer a Cosmological and Cosmogonic garden of the good, true and beautiful – now turning into this phantasm of complexity?

Where did we go wrong?
Was it the creation and maintaining of the expectation that we could comprehend and grasp the whole of our Cosmos within one perspective?

Were the applications of the science we created so profit bearing that we began to take more than our fare share?

Was it the tempo at which our scientists – not even slowed down by the ethical and moral considerations which constitute our navigation systems down the roads of evolution – that have brought us to this place much too soon and with so much needless suffering (for animals and humans)?

Are we to continue abandoning our organic (and real) ascendancy for artificial (and synthetic) correlates?

The ends are NOT justified by their means! They are determined by them.

Universal Constants and Variances

Constants and Variances 1 Constants and Variances 2

#6 Reality is composed of whole parts. (Holons)
Arthur Koesler coined the term ‘Holon’ that refers to entities as both wholes and parts of some other whole.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holon_%28philosophy%29

For example: a whole atom is part of a whole molecule, which is part of a whole cell, which is part of a whole organism,… Each of these entities are neither a whole or a part; rather, a whole part or Holon.

There’s a 2000 year old philosophical squabble between atomists and holists: “Which is ultimately real – the whole or the part?” The answer is neither or both, if you prefer…

There are only ‘whole-parts’: Holons.

A few of those who have followed my posts have been asking for more information about my work. Towards that end, I’m going to start publishing my growing list of universal constants and variances. It is these constants and variances that form the foundation of my work.

There are about as many of them as there are stars in our universe (if you count the primary and derived together), so I don’t think I’ll run out of them! Most of them are self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask in the appropriate thread. The numerical ordering is not yet important, as I’m still collecting and collating them as I discover them.

I have no tolerance for trolling or people who abuse others in my threads; especially on these threads about the constants and variances! So if you plan to wreak havoc here, you’ll get bumped real fast. I don’t mind criticism or skeptical opinions at all, but please be civil with everyone (including me).

Good News! It’s Not Just Particles! It’s Properties and Patterns of Particles! – Max Tegmark

Max Tegmark - Cosmic Explorer“Consciousness is a mathematical pattern.”

Is it possible to explain the phenomenon of purpose away with another phenomenon of emergence?
I wonder how he defines purpose itself?
Isn’t consciousness more than our senses?
Why are we only looking at states of matter and leave out stages, lines, levels, types,…?
Who is doing the “feeling” he’s describing?
Who gives the particles their work to do?
How are the particles different between dead and living beings?
So we are to replace our questions with a certainty of the phenomenon of consciousness and then explain that in terms of an interpretation of same?

I’m not a religious person, but the video is starting to sound like I should be one!
Is this what we get when a physicist tries to do philosophy? Oh my!


I Really Want To Agree… But I Just Can’t! – Max Tegmark – Cahners Theater

I Really Want To Agree… But I Just Can’t!
I did it again (for a friend) and tolerated another hour of this man’s presentation (see my post following this one where I cover the one I watched on August 31st).
I do NOT report this in a spirit of cruelty or meanness, rather to help others recognize when concepts and causality are being confused. I’m just as shocked as anyone else that this is possible.

Beyond the Higg’s Boson, which is not a convincing ‘discovery’, is his claim that the universe is mathematical at (31:00). “In the sense that it [universe] is a mathematical structure.”

Mathematics is simply a precise language!

Here’s one avenue, but I can give others, that may help understand why mathematics cannot be the universe, rather a means to represent it.

Patterns and shapes can be described mathematically just as they are now being described with my words. When he widens his definition to include them (shapes and patterns, structure,…) they represent literally everything and become part of his definition!

He also assigns humanity as a whole as the designer for technology that our amok running corporations have made (and have led the rest of us who ‘enjoy’ employment with them to build for them). The Cuban Missile Crisis isn’t a problem created by humanity as a whole, rather was created by corporations who work for banksters to further their ends.

Causality is all wrong throughout his presentation. Believe me, I wanted to be enthralled by his wisdom, but I’m left disappointed for many reasons… many for which I’ve made no mention.
