But complexity worthy of study itself does not answer foundational questions as a general theory of everything especially as a social or individual observations on how we think, epistemology or any modalities of knowing, of chance or necessity, science. Something to think about at least. Christianity — a religion I do NOT believe in, but nevertheless admire. In a sense we attempt to make it a test of science too that may underlying what we feel are subjective and social problems as projections into our collective and individual futures, the topic, sensible planning if there is one or the better of possible ones as we seem to have more control and influence over our own evolution.

What matters is the opportunity for sane people, able to define the right standards, to get information filtered according to their own standard. But where does the problem come from? They did a lot of work, had a competition, paid a million dollar prize. Without my rating, you can figure out how absurdly low their rating would have been.
Newer Post Older Post Home. Despite of this, and that I rated 10 the other 2 above, we still have very bad ratings: We modestly imagine the future Yet ateleology and antiteleology are forms of teleology.
Concretely, a big problem with a spinor is that its phase is reversed when you apply to it a rotation with angle 2pi. Kimmo, I yet have to check out your essay. Without my rating, you can figure out how absurdly low their rating would have been.
This is pure lack of imagination. Of course some essays have well-deserved very low rating. The main problem is that researchers are more or less forced to promote their own research field because it’s hard if not impossible to change field.
What matters is the opportunity for sane people, able to define the right standards, to get information filtered according to their own standard. The reflections on it in this post of Sabines would be a fine entry itself. Do we gain anything by descent into reductionist materialism or ascent to reason by endless conflicts of syntheses? The scientists and which scientists? Mind makes collapse before decoherence H. We modestly imagine the future Yet ateleology and antiteleology are forms of teleology.
But who is to say ten thousand years from now such travelers would find any of us monkeys worth saving? Namely, having works openly reviewed and criticized by anyone, and knowing who writes each review so as to make it possible to figure out if the reviewer is competent or not, can be an interesting information.

Comment moderation on this blog is turned on. They also need to be the sort of sophisticated, “quality” nonsense able to give idiots the feeling that it constitutes an intelligent, convincing defense of their obscurantist ideology. I can see that his topic is popular with the crowd at the FQXi page for obvious reasons, but it doesn’t actually address the problem.
