An idea worth spreading

Every action is based on interpretation of the brain. Everything is tending towards order, but everything is subject to entropy and disorder. Our function is to survive and that is why everything we do has an underlying reason relative to our survival whether we are aware of it or not. These reasons can be organized into things that effect our mental, psychological, and physical survival. Consciousness is the capacity of awareness of distinctions. All understanding, qualitative or quantitative is based on distinctions of space and time which we get information about through our senses. The problem is how do we analyze/ organize/ interpret the sensory input. The question is what is information? Some metaphysics: a fractal nature universe possibly could contain consciousness and our arbitrary actions could dictate the life of infinite conscious energy.

I'm passionate about

I want to be a neuroscientist. Computational neuroscience is where the field is heading. Other interests (whatever the heck that is jk) Theoretical Physics, Sociology, Psychology Art, Soccer.

Talk to me about

Neuroscience, Physics, Psychology, Soccer

My TED story

TED is awesome, I first started watching through youtube related videos on a physics video I was watching. (3 years later) This website has changed my life.

Skylar Tibbits: The emergence of "4D printing"
I want to see them use bio materials and maybe much in the future print a human brain if possible that would be amazing. We already print functioning basic organs so it is actually fairly feasible. Who knows how far we can take this in the future.

The plausibility of artificially intelligent robots becoming conscious and therefore becoming slaves of humans and the ethical implications.
Listen Ervin, buddy, no human in history was free of dogma. Including you, myself, and Abraham Lincoln. Are you saying the most logical reason for freeing African American slaves is because god approves; if so you are deluded. You need to become aware of the fact that republicans are simply greedy people with connections and people who are approved by CEO's who dominate the United States economy and fund their campaigns. Of course not all conscious robots will love their position in the world there will always be a positive and negative balance of outcomes of any change just by random probability this is completely logical it is the same for humans, but can you deny the existence of crucial human geniuses?So how can you deny the possibility of crucial robot geniuses.

The plausibility of artificially intelligent robots becoming conscious and therefore becoming slaves of humans and the ethical implications.
That is contradictory, because what is the difference between a robot willing to work or a robot being a slave. Either they will not want to work for humans or they will be our slaves very simply, or they will coalesce into our society until they advance ahead of us and then destroy or support us. Unconscious technology can also replace most working individuals so that issue is unavoidable all we can do is go from intellectual work to creative work or somehow boost our intelligence.
