QUOTE OF THE DAY

Recommended Posts

taken from a bishop_pass link in the Lounge forum(you AI junkies may have heard it already) "You know, the universe is the only thing big enough to run the ultimate game of life. The only problem with the universe as a platform, though, is that it is currently running someone else''s program." thought it was cool. Dredd

But that''s easily fixed... just FORK the process and alter the parameters!



You might like to read about many worlds theories (quantum mechanics).

The forking basically seems to happen all the time. Picking the ''parameters'' you want, on the other hand, isn''t a nice process. You could do it by shooting yourself in all of the universes where the parameters you want do not happen (by chance) - then all remaining instances of yourself find themselves in freshly forked universes with parameters as you wanted.

Actually I''ve already studied a fair bit on this topic... it''s also a well worn and well used method of analysis in philosophy.

Cheers,
