http://groups.google.com/group/everything-list/t/5882ad88fb9daa6a There were two links to nice videos on the everything-list. First from Brent Scientists Successfully Teach Gorilla It Will Die Someday Second from David Nyman (with smiley) Not The Nine O’Clock News – Gerald the gorilla http://youtu.be/beCYGm1vMJ0 Comments to videos. Bruno Marchal Hard to really conclude from one video, but it is still very […]

In the discussion on decoherence, http://groups.google.com/group/everything-list/t/a7cb935473feed70 I was recommended: try stuart hameroff and roger penrose collaboration….regarding conciousness. Below there is my answer. I have found the interview with Stuart Hameroff by googling http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2911199841702354668 Do you mean something like this? I am not sure that I find Hameroff’s ideas impressive. I am personally closer to John’s […]

The message to the everything list This week in Die Zeit there were two papers about love and fidelity. One more scientific, another more philosophic. In the latter there is a couple of paragraphs related to Goethe’s “Elective Affinities” that are 100% in agreement with Rex: Die Utopie der Liebe http://www.zeit.de/2011/15/Ps-Treue-Philosophie Fidelity is mere an […]

It has started afther the next statement Ontological reduction does not necessarily entail epistemological elimination, but it does entail ontological elimination. My comment to […]

Marcus Hutter A Complete Theory of Everything (Will Be Subjective) Algorithms 2010, 3(4), 329-350; http://www.mdpi.com/1999-4893/3/4/329/ Abstract: Increasingly encompassing models have been suggested for our world. Theories range from generally accepted to increasingly speculative to apparently bogus. The progression of theories from ego- to geo- to helio-centric models to universe and multiverse theories and beyond was […]

http://groups.google.com/group/everything-list/t/37514d7224e09703 Discussion that I have started on the everything-list. Below some answers from Bruno. Embryogenesis fits very well. The second recursion theorem of Kleene provides the conceptual solution of a problem given by Descartes: how to build a machine capable of self-reproduction. I have explained the ‘trick’ sometimes. I use a generalisation by John Case […]
