I would totally play that game.

WiiU will learn game - nobody in the game comes out of the womb with game skills, you learn game skills because you want shit but don't have it yet. Hungry dogs keep sniffy on the streets, wet noses wiggle to learn the scent. PS3 been eating long enough now. Ribs is touching wait not advised. Fuck around getbit. Platesnatch3

hey james one time this terrible band opened up for enslaved and the stupid singer who sucks was all "this next song goes out to--" and was immediately cut off by my awesome friend yelling "THE WICKED CLOWNS" and they just looked all sad and started the song that was gay. whatever asshole that shout out was going to got screwed. it really was a life changing moment for me and i felt i should share it with you.

I have been sitting at my computer slowly shaving all the yellow off a lemon for a while. It's basically mummified now and I think it is immortal. This is a picture of it nesting in $2000 because he's a rich lemon. I'm jame

James, is it murder to kill a cyborg if their mind is completely run by software? Is it murder to kill a robot that has evolved to think like a person? James! James, is it murder if a robot kills a person?

I've never found a working definition for either life or consciousness that I think is satisfactory, so it is a pretty unanswerable question really - but whatever life is, I do not believe that it could be brought about intentionally via machinery.

If life came about on this planet through abiogenesis then I suppose it would be possible to recreate the necessary conditions artificially.

I don't believe it could ever be proven that life can be created abiogenically, though - any experiment proving abogenesis would be conducted by human beings, and therefore would not be abiogenic. It undermines itself

Throwing all that away though I absolutely do believe that human beings have free will and can craft genuinely new things/thoughts in the universe which are not the result of predetermined fatal input - and although I am terrible at math I think that it is probably impossible to use software to create anything like that, since (at least at the present) it all revolves entirely around limited computation of already-existent input...

so basically no matter how convincingly you make a hard drive scream 'no no do not disassemble i am alive please i love my dog' it will never really be murder to put it through a band saw

and I don't think a machine killing a person is murder.... cyborgs don't kill people, people programming cyborgs kill people

I think it is all really pretty well put out in Frankenstein, although I disagree with all the romantic anti-hubris stuff that the story is actually trying to push.

also nobody I talk to ever thinks that a genetically engineered brain in a vat would count as artificial intelligence which I think is dumb.... why's it gotta be an r2d2 to count eh???

I think that this is sort of the entire point of Terminator 2... John spends the entire time desperately trying to make the robot human, and at the end the robot sorta proves that he is not... "I know now why you cry, but it is something I can never do" is not just a cool line.

The entire movie is about the reality of free will I believe, although it requires time travel to really make its argument, I think it is trying to disprove determinism via robot bullets. The robot has no soul and cannot alter its own destiny (programmed to destroy itself), although Sarah remains hopeful that she can.

Excellent! Most excellent!

I offer the theory, of positive thinking. A machine cannot do this because a machine can be programmed to act positive, yet it can never believe in it. Yet, why? A bunch of I's and O's.

James, no mention of self-awareness ? It's of course not necessarily an essential element of life but anything capable of being self-aware would necessarily be alive.. I think ?

It doesn't seem that far-fetched to me that a self-aware computer could somehow come into existence. Anything self-aware is capable of making conscious choices; therefore an argument, a solid one, could be made that the only real murder is a self-aware being taking the life of another self-aware being. I think by that definition, if "a robot has evolved to think like a person", which I'm assuming includes making conscious choices, it would be murder to end their existence.

I think that self-awareness is a function of metacognition, which can't result from any programming that I have ever heard of or could really conceive of...
