Re: UDA for Dummies

I am not sure now which contradiction you see between Mechanism and Mahayana. Also, UD says nothing. It is just a program which do something. UD is for Universal Dovetailer. UDA is a name of an argument: the Universal Dovetailer Argument. In a nutshell; the argument shows that if we are machine the...

Re: UDA for Dummies

Have you grasp that the after-life question becomes more hard that in the Aristotelian picture? And this says something. Civilizations always correspond to a conception of afterlife. OK? I really don't care about the afterlife. To me, contemplating about the afterlife is an activity for the ego. Th...

Re: UDA for Dummies

I am a bit amazed you can have megalomania (unless you were joking 'course). It seems to me that salvia can be helpful to cure or diminish that kind of thing. Is salvia not supposed to "kill the little ego"? is not megalomania a little ego's fate? I was thinking that with a few billion well placed ...

Re: UDA for Dummies

Do you know, passively or actively, what a computer is? Do you know what is a programming language? Do you know what a program is? Do you want me to explain this, shortly, or less shortly? I have a rough idea what those are. Arithmetic will appear to be a sort of block-mindscape (have you heard of ...

Re: UDA for Dummies

The following might help all dummies understand levels 1-7: The UD is basically an algorithm that executes all possible programs. It is called a dovetailer because, in order not to "crash" on infinitely executing programs (there is in theory no way to exclude such algorithms), it executes one instru...

Re: UDA for Dummies

Hey SL. I don't want to become the questioner from hell, but I have another question. :mrgreen: Let's say I'm watching a pen drop. Can you explain 'comp indeterminacy' using the visual of a pen dropping? Also, can you explain the term 'substitution level' using the visual of a pen dropping? This is ...

Re: UDA for Dummies

UDA 7 Here is the protocol. 1) you are here and now (that's easy, you are just respecting that aspect of the protocol right now, wherever you are). 2) you are told (and you trust that telling) that: a) the physical universe is expanding for ever b) that some alien civilisation has implemented a Uni...

Re: UDA for Dummies

I think there is a UDA 7 thread, have you try to read it. Do you want *me* asking the question. Have you an idea how the universal dovetailer works, and what it is? If you want, we can proceed by only simple exercises, like "can you put the two expression "salvialover24" and "burningmouth" in alpha...

Re: UDA for Dummies

UDA 4 I give you the protocol. You will be in Amsterdam, again. (Let me be clear: by "you" I mean the little ego, not (necessarily) your higher self, nor Gods nor Godesses, but the little you who relates his/her things of life in his/her personal diary. Like '---Gosh, my favorite mushroom is illega...

Re: UDA for Dummies

UDA 3 Step 3 involves a duplication of a person, like Mister D. Except here, the candidate knows the protocol in advance. So mister X lives in Amsterdam, and he accepts to be cut and pasted in two places at once, Washington and Moscow (say). The question is: can mister X predict, in Amsterdam, befo...
