Wouldn't your perception as you die be akin to that of falling towards a blackhole due to your functionality slowly deteriorating & the close relationship between memory and perception maintaining consistency?

>> No.10735302

if you fell towards a black hole it wouldn’t change your perception except you’d feel a tidal force pulling you harder and harder (stretching you out along the direction toward the singularity) as you get near to the singularity. for an average size galactic center or globular cluster center black hole, the tidal force is tiny at the horizon; you’d feel nothing. if you were listening to vanilla ice on your headphones as you crossed the horizon, it would sound exactly the same and your perception of it would be exactly the same as normal. an outside observer would see you doing weird things as you approach the horizon, like looking more and more red and dim and your vitals slowing down to nearly stopped, but that’s just their perspective. nothing changes in your reference frame at the horizon. but after you pass the horizon and keep falling, eventually your head gets ripped off your neck so, pretty bad

I rember to have read somewhere that the equation a^b = b^a + 1 (a,b are positive natural numbers) has only one solution, i.e. (a,b) = (3, 2).
I also remember that this is a conjecture or maybe it was proved but the proof is really difficult.
Does someone know the name of this conjecture/theorem?
Maybe I found it while I was reading something on Erdos, I can't remember.

How feasible is it to create a LIDAR machine that maps out an entire grid in it's view (a small room) and forwards that data to a computer?

The primary issue I see is accuracy, with the motor or with measuring the intricate details of various materials in a room.

And I'm unfamiliar with dealing with LIDAR. I'd assuming you would pulse the laser and then measure the first response receipt of data. Repeat that 2 more times for accuracy and then move 1 unit to the right.

And I also assume that at 10m away, to differentiate a cm from another you would require 0.05° movements of the laser and receiver. This would require a stepper motor and precision gearing correct?

Current msc student here,

Am I supposed to publish? is this even normal?

I want a good job/phd offer afterwards and I guess a career somewhat aligned to science.

What I'm doing in my thesis is pretty good, and its original.

I have some journals in mind, particularly the journal of artificial general intelligence (JAGI) and neurocomputing.

My supervisor has published many times (Cambridge alumni) and the topic was mostly his idea...

What percent of master thesis are published?

I'm 26 and have never published before (my undergrad thesis was garbage, (pharmacological enhancement of human intelligence with psychostimulants)
My thesis topic is in the field theoretical artificial neural computational cognitive neuroscience

When I wake up in the morning, usually 9 or 10 AM my tinnitus is maskable by everyday sounds. But after a while around 3 or 4 PM it starts to spike and can become insufferable.

Why the fuck does this happen? My tinnitus is a high-pitched ringing and hissing sound. This started 7 months ago and it’s probably noise-induced.

Is there any relief to this? Any treatments? Drugs? Vitamins? Supplements? Fucking anything before I blow my brains out? I’d rather have fucking cancer than this.

Have T in both ears. Left ear I almost never hear it until I plug it. If I plug both ears I can’t fucking hear the left ear tinnitus. The right ear T is the most bothersome and yes it DOES get louder when I chew or clench my teeth. But I think it’s normal and doesn’t necessarily mean it’s TMJ. I do have TMJ too tho. I really believe I got it from listening to loud music through cheap earbuds. Thank you for the info but I still can’t be sure.

There's a 'famous' method for short term relief: https://quiet-ears.com/how-to-perform-the-reddit-tinnitus-cure-correctly/

This works by exhausting the muscles in the back of your head, but more importantly, it shows that there is a muscular-skeletal factor involved in tinnitus. After learning this I have self-experimented with trying to stretch, pop, relax parts of my neck/spine while I notice it and can find relief doing this, infrequently I find complete, but fleeting relief.

But doing this isn't long term, and is perhaps dangerous. I recommend, knowing this physical factor exists, to make an attempt to pursue Yoga, meditation, get a better PC setup, etc.

There is also reasonable reason to suspect that this game may help with pure tone tinnitus, but I suspect if it does it is more masking the type of issue stated above. https://plasticity.szynalski.com/tinnitus

I would make sure you are doing it right, but assuming you are doing it right and its not working, I suggest trying it further down your spine. You can accomplish a similar result tapping the end of a pencil against yourself. If you find yourself involuntarily feeling the urge to 'straighten up' (your posture) do follow the urge.

An avoidance or sometimes even a phobia is an unfortunate side effect of the way math subjects are taught in schools. I suspect it's because of all the seemingly cryptic formulas and its arcane rewrite rules, correct? When you have time I suggest dabbling a bit in elementary geometry, especially the older kind, since it's a more visual and intuitive practice than raw algebra. And if you're looking for some motivation that even you can master advanced concepts then read the very short Lockhart's Lament.

I suspect it was how I was taught in school. Whenever I'd go to solve an equation there was always a chance that the numbers would seem to just magically wind up somewhere they weren't supposed to, or I'd do the whole thing backwards (which in math, where even a single decimal point in the wrong place ruins everything you've done.... yeah. Kinda frustrating.) and other times when I wouldn't understand why things worked the way they did. But most teachers couldn't really seem to change how they explained things to make it easier to understand, so I just kind of gave up on that bit and focused on things I actually enjoyed.

said, in or current canonl integer 3 is defined to be the only successor to 2. of course if you define a new value to that using some axiom, we can just map 3 to the successor of 2, and move every integer over one since the set of integers is countably infinite.

>> No.10735048

if you can read the output and understand the connectivity structure of the related network activity then in principle you can input information to meaningfully modulate that activity.

We can already stimulate individual neurons, and large numbers at a time... though not as well as we'd like to.

Certainly some stereotypical motor patterns can be entrained by other muscle movements.

Brain waves certainly no... and likely never since this information is all combined, and even from a single electrode on an EEG cap you're likely recording the middle of a chain of activity.

Neural implants that record in some kind of machine learned way maybe...

but this is silly, there are pretty good results using things like gaze, and eye movements, or recruitly some part of the body that isn't doing much and recording from there to train an exoskeleton suit.

...this is retarded anyway since the cognition enhancement is the holy grail, not moving an exo suit.

heres a paper on using gaze, https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1741-2560/9/4/046016
