—“Any thoughts on empiricism ever incorporating intuition into its epistemology? It is, though not yet understood, a sensory experience.”—Jarrod Marma
I don’t make errors. Operational simplification: Sensation(nerves), perception(cortex), integration (entorhinal cortex), experience(hippocampal region), auto-association( hippocampal subregion), attention (thalamus), projection(frontal cortex), retention (prefrontal cortex), recursion (repeat).
intuition = auto association (involuntary), free association(voluntary focus of attention)
If you read testimonialism you will find that I’ve repeated it for years now.
sense(stimulation), perception (disambiguation), auto-association, free association, hypothesis(reason), theory(empiricism), law(survival), recursion(partial falsification).
The brain (you) consists of a nervous system consisting almost entirely of variations on one cell type (neuron) of different compositions for different functions, the most numerous variation of which is (surprisingly) inhibition of information, the most influential of which are one type which calculate information.
We cannot make computers do the same thing at the same cost because in exchange for perfect memory, computers use fixed wiring and dynamic routing, where your brain uses both dynamic wiring and with it dynamic routing. So we have vast adaptability, and storage in exchange for recreation of memories through associations, whereas computers have precise recollection, l limited adaptability, and require far more physical storage because they have to store all the underlying sensory data. Current computer neural networks learn and no longer need to retain the sensory data they were trained with but they cannot be adapted to additional functions without training and re-structuring (yet). There are very good at single things so the future will likely consist of many basic functions performed by artificial neural networks, combined by a ‘grammar’ into a hierarchy of neural networks. our ‘grammar’ is spatial – because we must act. That does not mean computers will need a spatial grammar as well, because we might design it to act by different means – but I can’t conceive yet of an alternative other than property transactions, which are then handed off too another AI to act upon.
