From a recent FB post: China has committed slow motion suicide. The WSJ reports that China’s population shrank last year for the first time since the early 1960s when Mao’s insane policies led to the deaths of tens of millions. India is on the cusp of displacing China as the world’s most populous country. From Read More…
The find challenges the idea that human consciousness underwent a long, slow evolution in recent millennia. It was mainly our technology that evolved.
Penrose attempts a minimalist position when defending the reality of both mathematics and the mind in a world where many believe that only the physical exists.
Marcelo Gleiser worries that the claim that we are simulated beings with no free will reduces our ability to tackle the problems humanity faces.
