And that's why it's a knight to remember?

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.

The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.

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.

And then never move the furniture after that?

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.

You forgot the rules, again!

Rules? There are rules? Is one of them "Thous shalt not confuse thy nay-bor with facts"?

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/toobs-cambrian-life-figurines-677104


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.
