>Replace each neuron one by one?
>Just use more advanced lace technology to stimulate existing neurons in specific ways to build new desired pathways within the brain?

All machines will do is stimulate neurons, they can't cut/paste qualia.

I don't see how it's even possible "I" can experience a machine when "I" am the feeling of neurons being stimulated not transistors or other material combinations. The substrate would be different, the "I" that is the feeling of thoughts which is the feeling of neurons being stimulated would slowly die if you replace neurons with the same informational equivalent using a different substrate, if you destroy the neurons the "I" wouldn't even realize it was dying any more than an Alzheimers or patient feels their neurons dying.


Wouldn't we have already seen some informational "bleed" when these previous bmi's were hooked up? Wouldn't we already have noticed that some of the persons conscious experience "bleeds" over to the computer chip that is stimulating the brain? It doesn't feel like anything to be a transistor from a human experince. If consciousness is only information, wouldn't any transfer of information be consciousness? Instead what we find is that all we can really do is use very precise stimulation but nothing using transistors "plugs in" to the brain.

Thoughts? I hope I'm wrong.

Interaction paradox disproves qualia.

>> No.10815985

There is a way to create analog computers. But I definitely interact transistor to brain. So straight. It must be superhighspeed reader, and output is a keyboard.

For neuron it must be really hard to learn to activate transistor, and how layers on transistor stack if you burn it, it must be really heard.

If you test that on cat, it may be different.

Neuron designed neurons to make a transistor representation of something that call itself qualia but is binary?

Binary could be more precise...

dissociation with consent

it is now very much in my opinion that if you want to converse vast expanses between universe(s) it may be possible to do so

such a task would probably require that the beings on both sides of the communication let that which is above light communicate through them freely, as well as the being in question doing so
this must be done with consent and knowledge of the event transcending space and time may happen at any moment

you have to be open to what is faster than light you have to consent to free use of your mind and body

then you have to deviate your own consciousness to let another in with the foreknowledge of the event being open as well as the knowledge thereafter

do no harm
be open to any

any being of true good will not harm you and if they had to the pain may be alleviated

some restrictions apply pending state and local law, but you need to be open to appending what state law and local law mean

sometimes events can happen independent of their time, their place, their individuals involved, you've heard of the who, the what, the when, the where, the why, and the how.

today i had a firsthand experience of "the wow"
a totally different thing from what i expected interesting and now that things seem normal for the moment im ready to just be

if you want anything to happen, you need to be ready for anything, forever
i know i am and we can be

What’s the general opinion of going into Industry? I plan on getting a degree in actuarial mathematics and be an actuary and focus on quantitative analysis and then get a masters degree in financial engineering and be a quant. Then in my old age I’ll be a professor with a PhD. Should I just go into academia or sell my soul to Industry? I would love to just work at a college and teach but financially it would be best to do Industry work before academic.
