Are You a Boltzmann Brain? | Space Time

My comment regards this PBS vid:

If a copy of harry potter appears out of the blue, and another copy is written on a planet by a human author.  IF they have the same content they are the same book.    Especially if they are identical to the most minute detail, were that possible randomly.

Even if there are an infinite number of brains with the same experience floating about, popping up for all eternity, if their content is exactly equal to those of brains in human bodies within planets, they are the same brains.  

It is the moment when things diverge from a consistent set of experiences based on physical law that you could distinguish such states, but all states that follow a similar evolution will be indistinguishable for the observer.    But even inconsistencies can occur anywhere, albeit rarely, due to quantum laws.

Unless there's uniqueness to each copy, binding the identity of a conscious observer to the continuation of a particular copy.   An infinite eternal number of copies regards a particular piece of information might imply this information is immortal and indestructible.    That is if the copies do not have uniqueness to separate them, but are indeed true copies, then some manner of indefinite existence might be a conclusion.

GoodAI CEO Marek Rosa on the General AI Challenge and comment on the youtuber's video

Comment: While it is true that intelligence can be beat in certain scenarios, it is the key to surpass unevolvable roadblocks in the design of an organism.    You see animals evolving to be faster, to fly higher, to see further, yet it is our machines that surpass them in most if not all categories, at the very thing they specialize.

With advanced synthetic biology, we will be able to design organisms far beyond anything that has evolved.     Unless there is something like spontaneous wormholes into other universes actually being made by nature, or some other means of surviving the end of the universe, it is intelligence that can if there is a way find a way to survive the end.

Out of all the solutions by evolution, there is only one that allows you to eventually intelligently design and modify the underlying genetic code arbitrarily allowing for access to all possible evolvable and unevolvable phenotypes .   Only technology, enabled by intelligence, allows you to sequence all organisms, take their benefits, combine them, and even transcend them.

Nice Comment regards aging at kurzweilai

Aubrey is trying to drum-up funding.
As he should, we have animals lasting for multiple centuries, and their tissues showing no signs of aging, yet here we are dying after a few decades riddled with disease.
We know that lifeforms can live even for several millenia, and even tens of millenia, it is likely tissue composed of cells can be made indefinitely lasting and self renewing. Nothing in physics seems to stop this possibility. We all have a gun pointed to our heads, every single human has a ticking time bomb in the design of their body, yet almost none care or do something about it, because COUGH HEAVEN COUGH. Irrational, simply irrational.-C

Comment on someone's Comment on DRM | thread | feb 2017

"I'm sure there are some people who are willing to buy a game if they can't pirate it but I doubt it's a huge number. Most people probably either fall into piracy only or buy only but we'll never get to know for sure."-Bluth54, neogaf

Indeed, here's the thing. Unless someone has cash around and gamer friends pushing heavily for that particular title. There's plenty of legally free games of equal or superior quality. The complexity and graphics of low cost and even free games is increasing over time. You're competing against free and often superior products.

DRM cannot stop copying of digital data, it can only impede you playing a copy for a while. And as automated intelligent means of cracking are developed, systems that might be able to analyze at faster than human speed and see more complex patterns than humans can catch, expect any drm to be cracked within hours perhaps even minutes of release in the future.

I often buy a title on multiple platforms, even at full price. But if it has draconian drm, that can easily be up to half a dozen sales lost from me. I'll only buy one copy if that, and when it's sold at peanuts heavy discount, or I'll play something else.

Resident Evil 7, I was probably buying for xbox one, ps4, steam(and eventually on likely future android and ios), but now it'll be highly discounted on a single platform if that.   If I can't find a disc, I might buy it again, but now that won't be the case either, I'll buy digital where it's linked to a platform at heavy discount on a single platform, if that.
