   RE: [xml-dev] Are there any limits?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Determine first if these are actually problems (have an end solution) or 
polarities (are interdependent and to be managed).  Does the requirement 
for self-awareness introduce a polar requirement or can it be broken 
down into a series of problems that have solutions with some remainder 
that are polar and must be managed (see prior remark on rising costs of metadata)?

See http://www.polaritymanagement.com/frame02.htm

All questions are not resolved by yes or no in all cases. 
The Turing Test is context-dependent: it depends on who 
must be fooled.  It is solvable given a specific fool 
and polar in that fools won't remain such but manageable 
because a new fool can always be found.

Thanks to the categoricalAbstraction list for that reference.

_Prove_ that natural systems are "self-aware" (as opposed to just a
convincing simulation there-of) and we'll discuss.

'Formally define.'

Hold on. I'd like to introduce you to someone.

Mr. Godel...Mr. Bullard.     O.o
