was thinking about using substack, but i don't think i am at the point of being able to monetize my own content, but we'll see.

however, i *was* thinking about doing a series of posts on consciousness, qualia and computation. something like a walkthrough for strategical thinking regarding those problems, where, how and why current methods fail, what needs to be done next and improved etc, a step-by-step, systematic thinking about the very hardest problems of science:

- why does the scientific method fail
- improving scientific method
- computational approach to unifying two theories
- escaping the subjectivness and bias (i.e. claiming objectivity)
- automatically deriving theory from data
- exploring extensions of a specific theory

- higher levels of popular algorithms
- algorithm that has scientific method as an emergent consequence (and not a direct goal)
- algorithm that has optimization as an emergent consequence (and not a direct goal)
- algorithm that has evolution as an emergent consequence (and not a direct goal)
- algorithm that has behavior of least action as an emergent consequence (and not a direct goal)

- the hard problems (tweet)
- computational irreducibility / taming complexity
- taming chaos / pattern vs random
- deterministic vs indeterministic
- computation++ (extending computational models)
- compilation as fundamental process for learning
- proof systems
- taming entropy
- qualia
- extending scientific method
- discrete vs continious (finite vs infinite)

some additional interesting topics:

- limited bandwidth and cognitive capacity of humans - problems of discovery and chaos
- computational entrepreneurship
- basic framework
- product design
- pitch deck
- marketing
- complexity and hierarchies
- why it's okay to make mistakes
- why experience matters
- why everyone in the team matters

- business model of academia and how to fix it
- modular (product) design
- equalizing space and time constraints in computation
- injecting computer into the program encodings in computation
