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
  • 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
