How do you determine what is true? That is, by what method do you distinguish the things which are from the things which are not? For example, how do you know you're actually reading this, that you're not just dreaming?
And why are you convinced that's the way you should be doing it?

(For the sake of clarity, please provide both a description and an example.)

And is there any way for that to account for idioms, metaphors, and references?
For instance, suppose I tell someone "hold on to the grudge if you like", but instead I phrase it as "wear the grudge if you like" in reference to a song. I might just be using that as a turn of phrase, or I might be implying something about what I think they're doing, or I might be implying something about what I think they should do.
Is there some way in which deducing the meaning of the word is supposed to differentiate those things?

Yes, all of those are accounted for, as you can empirically verify if you play with these LLMs. Transformer models handle not only "closed-ended" antecedent inference (winograd-schema esque) but also "open-ended" inference. The extended 2-gram example was just a sample, in reality these models don't just look at frequencies. I don't think anyone knows exactly what the Q/K/V vectors they learn end up corresponding to (although you can try to make guesses by looking at activation patterns), but all we know is that successive layers keep pooling information

initialize a random number generator. A "good seed" is a number that
produces a good random number generator. The phrase "no good deed goes
unpunished" means that if you do something good, you will be punished
for it.

I'm not really following the jargon (and don't really care to look into it), but I can see that subtleties could be accounted for simply as additional variables.
But, far as I know, that still would not account for the correct answer not being among the possible choices.
And more importantly, it does not explain my lifetime of experience of people not even being in the right category when they assume my meaning. For instance:

(about searching for "the meaning of life")
me: "I think the whole question is a misframing, and that meaning is chosen instead of found."
them: "So you think the meaning of life is to make choices."

It's only going to get worse as newer generations are incredibly uncomfortable when something is just allowed to be done without legal intervention. At this point I'm not going to distinguish between the law and the terms of use of companies, as large corporations have well more than enough power over everyday life to rival most governments at this point.

Of all it's achievements, most impressive of the British Empire is not that they managed to conquer a greater portion of the earth than any other people before or since, nor even that they managed to conquer the tongue of every person on the planet, but that they managed to colonize the mind and conquer the intellect and spirit of every other peoples on the planet. Never has a single group more wholly retained the attention and the spite of the entire world.

Has anyone else here watched The Boondocks? What do you think about it? In retrospect, it's bizarre that is was ever made at all. A black American makes a satirical comic strip about race relations, black pop culture and politics, and that of all things gets an adult swim adaptation, styled after anime.

It's the kind thing that could have only been made at that specific point in time where American networks were trying to replicate anime, before they gave up on that.

The show pushes boundaries(at least the boundaries of that time) and makes quite of bit of fun of things you wouldn't typically be able to mock black people for. It's done under an interesting lens though.
All of the stereotypical "bad behavior" or tastes associated with black people, are attributed to "ignorance". Ignorance is The Boondocks' favorite word. Ignorance of what exactly, is never specified. What magical piece of knowledge black people are missing is never explained to the audience.

White people on the show are portrayed as caricatures. Either they're blissfully ignorant and unaware of how society works, greedy and morally bankrupt, or they imitate black people. The main antagonist of the show is actually not a white person, but an extreme uncle tom.

It's hard to piece together what exactly the show's overall message is. It's kind of exotic, as you can tell from it's lukewarm, bitter representation of Obama. Not exactly standard liberal propaganda. People have said the creator is a "black nationalist". I don't know anything about that ideology. The show does have some element of self-aggrandizing though. Huey, the main character, is a genius 10 year old who knows kung-fu. He's the show's main mouth piece of reason and has been called a writer self-insert.

So those are my thoughts.

Does a religion need any kind of supernatural element? Let's say I invited a religion called Soupism. The only rule is that you have to eat soup at least once a day. To be a Soupist, the only two conditions are that you follow this rule and consider yourself a Soupist. That's it. The symbol of Soupism is a cursive s. Does Soupism count as a religion?

>philosophical debates are really just bickering over the definitions of words
The bickering over "consciousness" always seems like this. People always redefine the term so they can defend a viewpoint that no one really meant in the first place. The "compatibilists" are a prime example of this.

At it's core there are only 3 options for the question of free will:

* The universe is completely deterministic (á la superdeterminism) at which point you obviously have no free will at all, and the notion of science itself which depends on the notion of independence faces a radical paradigm shift (maybe independence only holds at the macroscopic level or something, who knows). That is to say, the future is "predetermined" but not predictable given the complexity. Either way this is the option that no one dares to accept.

* The universe has true randomness at the quantum level, and our decisions/thoughts at any point in time are purely a function of our sensory inputs and brain patterns which evolve over time (plus maybe some minor random noise). In this case the future is "locally" predetermined (depending on the amount of random noise), and in the long term is undetermined (given the randomness). But if there's no mechanism by which you can influence the randomness, then there's no "will" here either.

* There is some unknown physics by which we can influence events at a non-material level. This is seemingly what most people cling to when confronted with the question.

But either way philosophy contributes nothing here. If this _is_ a decidable question it is one that can only solved by experimentation to learn more about the nature of the universe and how our sensory inputs are converted into thoughts.

It would not change anything, many non-religious movements are quite fanatic, for example communism, anarchism or fascism.
>> No. 1554 [Edit]
I think this is approaching the problem fundamentally backwards.

For context: first, if you were to simply declare that Soupism is a religion, on what grounds could that be refuted? We have no objectively true and correct English dictionary as penned by an almighty god himself. And we have no objective truth machine into which we can feed non-empirical questions and receive irrefutable results. And citing an authority would simply be pushing the problem off onto someone else. Webster's, for instance, also has no magic truth machine.

Second, how is anything determined? If you start with assumptions you can make logical inferences from those assumptions. e.g. "If we assume A and B, then we can deduce that C must also be true". But because that starts from assumptions, any conclusions derived this way are hypothetical. And I don't think you were asking for a hypothetical. If you had intended to start your question with: "If we assume that religion means _", then you wouldn't have needed to ask at all. Else, because the only way for outside information to get into your brain is through your senses, the only other means of determining anything is through observation. And starting from observation, the experience of whatever it is would have to come first, and then the term applied to it would simply be a reference to that experience. You couldn't, for instance, have the concept of soup before you had the experience of it (real or imagined).

Getting to the point: so to define what a term means from observation, you would have to designate a particular experience as the archetype of that thing, and the characteristics of that chosen archetype define what the term means. For instance, you're eating your bowl of wet food, you decide "this is soup", and then whatever else is or isn't soup is defined by whether it is sufficiently similar to The Soup. It could also be a cluster of archetypes, a group of things by which their collective or common features define the term. You could have subtypes of the thing ("tomato soups") or partial fits (cereal as a "demi-soup"), certain features might be weighed more heavily than others, and specific definitions may vary with individuals or with groups or with time.

So, rather than asking "is Soupi

Do you believe in the existence of non-material phenomenon (not necessary god but things like reincarnation, collective consciousness, astral/ethereal "bodies", etc.)? Or do you instead view the world only in strictly material terms? Or maybe there's a third option?

Note again that this question is not strictly speaking about any sort of god; (of course clearly if one existed then non-material phenomenon exist, but we can still have non-material phenomenon without needing to invoke a god).

I personally ascribe to a more materialist viewpoint since while it's true that our knowledge of the world is ultimately mediated by our senses (and hence potentially imperfect), most (all?) non-material phenomenon seem to implicitly mark humans as "different" from things like rocks or insects and this seems apriori unlikely.

On the flipside, I recently read about how one guy seemed to have documented cases of "reincarnation" [1] (but the fact that all of these rebirths seemed to have happened in a geographically close town seems quite suspicious).

i would say thats the next best thing now that heliocentrism is out of the way.

>If you want to invoke the aether, then what would explain lorentz invariance?
honestly i had no idea what lorentz invariance was until i read about it a few minutes ago, from my understanding it means the laws of the universe dont change no matter where you are. if i do have this right then i think it would be you that has to explain how lorentz invariance exists without any underlying fabric on the universe. the ether easily explains it because everything is the ether and therefore everything is bound by its laws. without an ether, what is stopping something from not following the laws of physics or even leaving the universe altogether?

btw the random bullshit i was talking about was lorentz contraction, which to my knowledge was invented solely to account for the failure of the michelson morley experiment.

>If you can reliably reproduce this, then sure
i mean in principle how psychic communication and magnets work are the same. hypothetically if it did exist then it would work through the same medium magnets do, so its nonsensical to classify magnets in a different domain.

This is opening up a whole new can of worms – if you reject heliocentrism then the assumptions we're working under are so radically different that it's not going to be productive to continue this line of discussion. (You'd have to go back to epicycles to explain orbits, let alone the tangible evidence from telescopes)

I think it'd be prudent to at least understand a bit more about SR (and GR) before dismissing ideas outright. And if you dismiss lorentz contraction then you're implicitly dismissing time dilation which we know is experimentally true given the correction factors needed for GPS.

i think you misunderstood me, i know high frequency means more energy. i guess what im trying to say is you can have a high amplitude low frequency beam of light that doesnt produce the photoelectric effect, meanwhile a low amplitude high frequecy beam of light will produce it.

>if you reject heliocentrism then the assumptions we're working under are so radically different that it's not going to be productive to continue this line of discussion
it is much easier to just accept the results that the michelson morley experiment showed than to claim that distance contracts in order to explain why the motion of the earth cant be detected.

>you can have a high amplitude low frequency beam of light that doesnt produce the photoelectric effect, meanwhile a low amplitude high frequecy beam of light will produce it.
Yes, what's wrong with that. There's a thresholding effect depending on frequency, and amplitude (square of which roughly corresponds to intensity) determines the current. Wave-particle "duality" is a pop-sci "meme" as it were, there is only the wavefunction and its evolution through time. Trying to say it behaves "like a classical particle" or "like a classical wave" is just as wrong as saying that sound is caused by something invisible like air but is caused by ripples like watter so sound exhibits "air-water" duality. Under the modern field theory interpretation I believes photons are nothing but what we call excitations of the EM field. And quantization is a result of an effect similar to how classical standing waves are constrained to multiples of the base harmonic.

Tribal identification is inefficient in globalized industrial society. To that end, Europeans are attacked because their culture is too puristic and they aren't easily assimilated into a massive global population/workforce. It's simply and honestly in my opinion regular old greed. International mega-corporations do not have it in their long term or short term interest to maintain or tolerate a population that doesn't want to cooperate with it or become another segment of the squirming, slaving brown masses.

We live in the delusion that humans behave and form ideas, philosophy, and civilisation because it works well, but the reality is that no human social behavior can be known to have the most optimal results in the long run. Sometimes a system that works well for thousands of years suddenly runs up against a problem it wasn't developed to solve, and it disintegrates under the pressure of it's new environment. I believe that industrial society, or more importantly global economic society, was that obstacle for European civilization. It ended up pitted against groups, largely run by individuals from it's own culture and genetic background, that simply didn't care about loftier ideals like race, culture, religion, etc. and used their acquired economic power to blot out opposition. To that end, European societies are being destroyed simply because they are too costly to maintain. Europeans expect too much of their resources for themselves, and too much autonomy over their own land, and within recent history ( say 30,000 years ) they have been the most opposed to mixing or cooperating with groups outside their own, as is evidenced by their genetic situation. By the way you should read about that kind of thing, Europeans form such an insanely tight cluster on the global scale and are one of only two super-populations to have effectively zero modern mixing.

Although greed may be the wrong idea here. I can't see human society past a certain point as the result of individualistic human ideals, desires, and motivations, like for example "the Jews want to ( personally ) destroy the white race". I see things as a big system sort of deal, where

The context doesn't really matter, the refusal to integrate into a globalised system is a major threat to the control of the people who are consciously or unconsciously sending us in this direction. Even if they got rid of manual labor today it would be a major threat to have an entire chunk of civilisation that doesn't want to go your way. Their pursuit of a mono-civilisation that they control may even be some twisted form of self-defense. After all no individuals with power can stay on top forever, I think that no matter who they are or what their desires are, it would just make sense that if you had reached the top, with the power a major global corporation has, and you could visualise it's destruction, you'd want to destroy that threat or assimilate it into your own resources.

>2–4% of spouses report having sex with a secondary partner in the preceding 12 months.

Which is interesting as one of they studies I quoted(or tried to) gave an annual cheating rate of 10% and that same study gave lifetime rates of 28% for men and 15% for women.

I also found a study form China.

>In 2020, 26% of married Chinese (35% of married men and 23% of married women) reported ever having been sexually unfaithful to their current spouse.

Most of these studies seem to be before 2007 or so, it'd be interesting to see statistics post-2008 when the barriers to finding other promiscuous people became lower with the rise of various websites and mobile applications.

What are your thoughts on western companies trying to pass their stuff as Anime? Specially stuff like Turning Red or High Guardian Spice. Who are they trying to fool?

If you interact with western 'anime fans' you'll just get angry. Actually if you interact with westerners in general at this point you'll just get angry.
Of course we are all westerners and western anime fans but you know what I mean.

But look at the bright side. If the west does start making 'anime' and it takes off then maybe they will leave real anime alone.

They don't call it a blindfold, they call it a "lens".
