Will your AGI be programmed to push us off the nest then, thus to stop caring for us for a while?
It would have been interesting to see a discussion between the AGI and the people about how they felt since they got everything they wanted, and since they had no problems to solve anymore. I would have liked to see the AGI not being able to understand why they felt bad, then see the people immediately feeling good again, then see the AGI freeze because it is unable to find what he did right. :0)
If it is so, then your AGI will obviously heft its own feelings the same way we do.
...why would scientists behave differently.
Because it's expected of them that they apply mathematics correctly
The problem is not with maths, it's with resistance to change.
With intelligence, resistance gets subjective: we know people always resist, but we think it's bad will instead of realising that we do the same thing.
It's not bad will, it's normal resistance to change.
Things take time to change, that's all, and it has nothing to do with intelligence. The proof is that you didn't understand what I meant yet even if it's easy to understand. :0)
the guy today just called my relativity page a "manifesto" and refused to discuss details. They're a bunch of frauds who just throw stones and run away.
When a species evolves, it does so by natural selection rewarding useful mutations and punishing bad ones, but the mutations continue to be random - no lessons are learned about bad mutations, so they are made repeatedly and a lot of individual animals suffer greatly as a result.
Species don't evolve.
If you need to blame someone for the undesirable, hurtful things in the world, then the first human pair who made a wrong freewill choice on our behalf are guilty.
That's what usually happens when we tell people belonging to a group that they are wrong. You're too direct on your page on relativity, and it doesn't help to convince relativists.
Consider the common misnomer 'motion pictures', where people view still images in rapid succession. The mind actually supplies the 'motion'.The computer screen is a similar instance, where pixels are switched on and off in rapid sequence, and the mind melds them into the perception of a moving image.That's the essence of simulation/animation.
A spacetime drawing has the same informational content. It's just the history of plotting a spatial coordinate with a corresponding time coordinate.
The graphics are a geometrical presentation of the coordinate transformations of SR. The results can be verified using the math expressions of the Lorentz transformations.No such thing as 'event meshing' ever developed in relativity theory, by Lorentz, Einstein, or Poincare. It's your idea.
Any form of Artificial Intelligence is incomplete, since it will not contain all thought in all circumstances, especially judgments regarding morality, equity, etc. The pottery is always less than the potter.
Mathematics is a humanly conceived language, and serves as a verification tool for science. Its purpose is for measurement. If it can't be measured, then science can't study it. This includes intangible spiritual things, love, charity sympathy, joy, etc.
It is not capable of fixing the world problem.
People are not capable of solving the world's problems. They are the problem!
