The 24 sector resolution critter is working incredibly well! The earlier freezing up problem I needed to get rid of is gone.

I'm getting the expected signal ratios, and discovered that the complex wave patterns I was seeing cause sometimes comical behavior expected of something too curious for their own good, which is a good thing to able to so easily make happen using waves. While stuck for some time in a swirl like pattern it was racing along the outer side of the wall towards the shock zone then would turn real fast just in time to not get zapped, then it eventually did (a tiny amount during turn) causing another pattern change.

The only thing that it now seems to need is a layer of permanence that holds direction using an "activity bump" or such, a vector. Else it forgets what that is right after a wave passes. This should solve the occasional blanking out problems when feeder is in the middle of the shock zone, without needing the two step cycle. The code/process is being further (as per Occam's Razor) simplified.

Now you just need to teach it to remember where the furniture, doorways, and carpets are, and how to get back to its charging station.

Let's look at some quotes of people contradicting you, shall we?

   
Quote
stop moving the goalposts by adding things into the premise of the theory that are not in there like "intelligent designer" instead of "intelligent cause".


Oh, whoops, that is awkward, if the two are the same entity, how is it moving the goalposts to use the other term? Whoever wrote that quote must strongly disagree with you!

And here's another guy who seems to disagree completely with you:

   
Quote
Intelligent Designer related questions such as those are best answered at this forum:
www.reddit.com/r/askashittyphilosopher/


He even implies that any mentions of an intelligent designer are a sign of shitty philosophy!

What you are doing is the same as demanding Wesley to explain the origin of a godlike entity the premise of Charles Darwin's theory (according to you) named the "Natural Selector".

You can expect a similar kind of response from me. Use proper phrases, or you do not deserve to be taken seriously. It's otherwise a question that only a place like the ask a shitty philosopher forum would (for entertainment value) want to try answering.

And once again, you don't even pretend to address anything I have said, but rather repeat the initial nonsense I just refuted.

Okay, I'm gonna be extra slow this time.

You claim your "theory" shows that "certain features of living beings are best explained by an intelligent cause".
(All throughout this gibberish)

You also claim that other than the fact that you happened to use the word "cause", there is no difference between "intelligent cause" and "intelligent designer", they are the same entity.
(Here's the post)

You also admit that the very premise of your "theory" is copied word for word from the Discovery Institute's definition of Intelligent Design.
(Discovery Institute)

What you have is by any definition intelligent design, and your "intelligent cause" is -even by your own admission- the same thing as an intelligent designer.

This is why it's painfully obvious that you make this shit up as you go along, when you sporadically protest that someone used the term "intelligent designer", instead of "intelligent cause".....only to then admit that the words are synonymous, and already having admitted that your very definition of your theory is the exact same definition that the discovery institute uses - without any attempt to pretend that "cause" refers to anything but a designer.

Do you understand that now? Do you understand, that you are contradicting yourself, when you say that anything involving "intelligent designer" is shitty philosophy, after you admit that "intelligent cause" IS "intelligent designer"?
And do you understand that crying "moving the goalposts" is completely misused, when someone uses the term "intelligent designer"? (Can't stress this enough, you yourself admitted that they are "the same entity")

I know I repeated myself a lot in this, but as the last exchange showed, you have really big trouble grasping simple concepts.

Breakthrough for imaging traveling waves and wave spirals like I'm seeing:

‘Blue’ voltage-sensitive dyes for studying spatiotemporal dynamics in the brain: visualizing cortical waves
https://www.spiedigitallibrary.org/journal....07.full


For insect and mammal navigation is something Roy Ritzmann (from video linked to in program comments for info on motor signals used) helped write:

Spatial Navigation and the Central Complex: Sensory Acquisition, Orientation, and Motor Control
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc........5258693

I was again hoping to have the new model done by now but after studying what's new on Goggle Scholar I ended up able to make it much further along than expected. I found that by starting the wave at the mouth location and attractor/food reflective by not inverting the pattern it receives (to make a wave one neighbor signals while the other no longer does) it echo-locates like a bat while at the same time broadcasting outward going double waves where length of time from one to the next is determined by how far away the attractor is. Each place in the network more or less (as in sports) is receiving a "next best thing to being there" play-by-play of what's going on in the external environment. There are also conditions where spiral waves are generated, like shown in the first paper I linked to for visual cortex traveling and reflecting waves. This is also good in regards to accounting for bats being able to navigate without one after another continuous waves, like the ones I was previously using with a steady 58% signaling ratio. We too have the ability to judge size and other properties by its reflected wave, echo.

There is still work to be done before having something ready to go, but I'm still working on it, whenever I can!

We can add Bats to the Alligators and Salmon on the long list of subjects that Gaulin knows nothing about.

At the risk of repeating myself, this does not have anything to do with the biology of Bats. It is just your effort at forcing your cheap Pacman imitation into your crappy idea of IC/ID.

Every post you make takes you further and further away from the understanding of what science is.

You still have to demonstrate that any of your ideas are based in science and until you do we will continue to laugh at your efforts and shake our heads at your ignorance.

Camp sent me something for Christmas, worth putting on your last minute educational toy shopping list:

www.safariltd.com/evolution-of-man-663816

I knew about the usual plastic dinosaurs, but did not know about these. Packages include a description of what each piece is. It's a small but hopeful sign for the future. The kind of thing that others need to know about too.

All I wrote at Kurzweil AI is soon to be gone. I don't know what to do but to "let it go" too.

There are some new ones such as the No Big Bang thread and one for Neuroevolution that you might like to hurry up and read.

The same advice should be applied to your pseudoscientific "theory" and your poor imitation-of-Pacman "model" as well. "Let it go".

The Discovery Institute and their enablers won. All the head-games and misinformation made China the world's new scientific leader. Future technology work will be farmed out to Asian countries.

Best of luck to others who must now "Let it go" too.

Beijing Is Getting a $2.1 Billion AI District

China is gearing up to build a technology park in Beijing entirely dedicated to the development of artificial intelligence, news first reported by Xinhua, the country’s official press agency.

Master plan: The endeavor is just the latest sign of China’s remarkable ambition to master and dominate artificial intelligence by 2020. Last year the central government published a three-year-plan to invest huge sums in AI, and to apply the technology across the country’s industries and economy (see "China's AI Awakening").

Key details: The plan will apparently establish a “national AI research center” and, interestingly, will include efforts to form partnerships with foreign research institutions and companies. This seems like a smart move given the opportunities presented by China’s vast economy, and it could help strengthen the country’s position as a force in AI in years to come.

What about the U.S.?: China’s ambitions contrast starkly with moves by the Trump administration, which has cut research funding and introduced tax and immigration moves that will make it more difficult to attract top AI researchers. As if that weren’t enough, China’s AI masterplan seems to have been inspired, in part, by a document produced by the U.S. government at the very end of the Obama administration.

Referring to David and Louise, they said "God called on them" to have as many children as they did.

They also said the children were given "very strict" home-schooling and they had to memorise long passages of the Bible. Some of the children were aiming to learn it in its entirety, they said. Despite this, the school listed at their address is on public records as "non-religious".

Meanwhile, we will take due note of Ab’s exposure that beyond JS there are other “sock[puppet]” personas popping up in and around UD at rhetorically convenient times and coming from that source; a key sign is that such are not honest participants in discussion on the merits. KF


This is going to be fun. KF is going to accuse everyone who even mildly disagrees with him of being one of my sock puppets. This in spite of the fact that I have not commented at UD for quite some time, and have no desire to do so any time soon.

But watch out KF. I could be anyone. Man, woman, child. Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindi, pastafarian. Straight, homosexual, transgendered, homophobe. You will never see me coming. Just when you least expect it, BANG. Don’t trust anyone. I could be WJM, BA77, rvb8, StephenB, ET,... Bwaahaahaa (evil laugh while twirling moustache).


KF might be a false-flag troll too. Same for a few others.

This just in from Camp:

How Arc mimics this is, it encapsulates its RNA in order to transfer it from one neuron to another. Elissa Pastuzyn, Ph.D. is a postdoctoral fellow and the lead author of this study. She said in a press release, “We went into this line of research knowing that Arc was special in many ways, but when we discovered that Arc was able to mediate cell-to-cell transport of RNA, we were floored.” She added, “No other non-viral protein that we know of acts in this way.”

The study is changing how we view the evolutionary process. Rather than random mutations, it suggests that organisms may borrow from one another in order to develop. To test the theory, Shepherd and colleagues devised a number of experiments to see whether or not Arc operates like a virus.

Neuroscience is like a whole other world where all must be biologically real, no "Artificial" anything is allowed. This puts those who don't care how biologically relevant something is in a field of their own where it's OK to not care about such things.


Duh, this is why we have been carping forever that YOU specifically cannot make claims against biology and evolution on the basis of a computer model whose biological relevance is dubious at best and for which you refuse to do any ground-truthing.  Your demonstration of severe misunderstanding of biological facts and evolutionary theory just exacerbates the problem.

The article more pertains to how at the molecular level there is a RNA/DNA/metabolic world of activity going on that all together causes the emergence of neurons and of living things.

The computer model is still making scientifically useful predictions:

More, in case you missed it:

The virtual critter now has spike train in/out episodic memory being connected in. It's a RAM, as in a David Heiserman circuit, except it's addressed with (X,Y,AngularTime) and data replays spike trains, to remind of what in the past happened at a given place and time. ​
