I’m going to respond to this, four years later, because I’m poking around this forum again and, frankly, I get a little annoyed when members of the inner NKS clique take a superior tone with me.
To say it’s the greatest modeling challenge for NKS is just wrong. It might be the greatest in some philosophical sense, it might be the greatest in some sort of metaphysical sense, but in an engineering sense, in a theoretical sense, it is not the greatest challenge for NKS.
inhesion is a C library for complex systems. It’s in development now. It will have genetic algorithms, cellular automata, cultural evolutionary search, and other such systems. The initial release, available now, has a multi-variable optimization system called cor3. You can download a demo.
On the one hand, we have programming languages like C. On the other hand, we have very basic logical systems like cellular automata (CA). Even some of the simplest CAs (and other simple Turing machines and like systems) are universal…you can use them to emulate any other system. Specifically, Matthew Cook showed that rule 110 … Continue reading Why It Will Be Useful to Bridge the Gap Between Programming Languages and More Simply Enumerable Systems Like Cellular Automata
The coincidence of training exercises on multiple of these terror incidents (9/11 and 7/7) are especially interesting to me, and cause me to consider esoteric theories involving post-human influences. Yes the exercises could be part of the activity of a terror-inducing human influence as part of a “conspiracy”. They could as well be pre-existing events … Continue reading 9/11 and 7/7 Training/Real Event Coincidences Considered Through the Lense of Cellular Automata Models
I love looking at this. It makes clear the connection in my mind between what I hear and what I see. I cannot think in hearing. I can think in seeing. There’s been a little bit of work using cellular automata to compose music. Seeing this video sparks my thinking along those lines.
“Therefore I respond to inhaesio’s question (how would we know if a pattern was so subtly embedded in randomness as to not impede that apparent randomness) with a question: how do we know that the persistence of randomness is not a signal in itself of high, deliberate complexity?” (James Jones Rounds)
