Random Thoughts and Questions
From my journal, 2004, Part One of some deep thoughts:
"Can everything be made to fit a given theorum? And if so, then can all philosophies/ideas/theories be distilled into/quantified as a single, pure formula?
Game theory would then apply directly, which means that all thought and action is fully predictable and therefore free will does not exist. Does game theory factor in "free will?" It must, or there can be no conclusive pattern recognition.
Is pattern recognition the key to higher (more evolved) intelligence?
How can testing be generated that will measure pattern recognition - within the human species, and across all life forms?"
Tomorrow, Part Two.
And here's the salient quote for the day: "The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible." - Einstein
