AI needs embodied cognition??

Intro LO: There are four levels in human consciousness: Unknown unknowns resulting in fantasy (eg, fiction); Known unknowns resulting in beliefs (eg, science-fiction); Unknown knowns resulting in intuition (eg, innovation); Known knowns resulting in knowledge (eg, science, technology) and in tools. The Axios AI+ article below is indeed consistent with “ancient”...

Hibernation

While writing this at 10:30 AM, I’m fighting my sleep. Since early December, I’m taking some 2 to 4 short naps each day. Each power nap makes me feel alive again (eg, SA-2023).

For others, it's not. Recently, I noticed this quote by Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid's Tale: “You may not be able to alter reality, but you can alter your...

What enables also interferes

A recent Aeon-Psyche article stated that "language both enables and interferes with our grasp of reality". Indeed, our language enables our communication and/but will also result in confusion (eg, meaning, translation). Actually, everything that enables will also interfere (eg, life vs death). This phenomenon may relate to dualism (eg, knowledge = power) and/or...
