Last year I wrote a post with a thought experiment, (this one: Thought Experiment / Consciousness & Awareness), and both of you had told me that it reminded you of a scene in ‘The Three Body Problem’.
So, I stuck it on my list of books to read and finally got around to it about 10 days ago. I’m not finished just yet (I’m on chapter 22, ‘Red Coast V’), but I did just finish the scene you guys were talking about.
Brilliant book - thank you both for the suggestion
[WARNING - SPOILER-ISH (if you haven’t read it yet … just saying)]
Can you imagine if “Newton” and (not Leibniz … gah - can’t remember the other character that helped build the computer) the other guy had built it with neurons instead of gates? It would take ages to train that thing.
Anyway, I just wanted to drop a quick “thanks for the suggestion”
I’m absolutely loving it.
