The emergence of structured and patterned complexity may just be an inevitable consequence of a Cosmos in which the self-replicating, iterating logical process of self-replication itself represents the simplest, low-energy (and minimal algorithmic information complexity) state of any dynamical process. Continue reading Emergent Complexity as Logical and Material Inevitability
Is consciousness an emergent phenomena from the mysteriously unintelligible sub-microscopic world of quantum mechanics ? Yes, and no. Continue reading Consciousness as Emergent Quantum Phenomena ?
Most narratives of post-AI apocalypse fail to acknowledge that whatever it is that is going on between all of our ears might actually represent a resource or asset of study and creative experimentation for an artificial superintelligence.
