The act of choosing words is done by you, not your computer

—— I thought that computers can communicate with each other. And I think when I put a pan on the stove and turn on the flame there is being heat communicated it’s really has nothing to do with what I think about it, except that maybe I want to fry some eggs.

There are far more actions and actors involved than straight forward communication.

Computers relay information. When computers communicate with each other you are projecting human qualities onto them through your choice of words.

Besides, “heat communicated“ is a stretch of meaning of metaphor in your words and not in the acts.

The utterance does not equate to the action. Separate acts.

You are confusing yourself more than you are confusing me.

  1. I am not ignoring you telling me this.

    Here are you positions. Please verify.

    1. Everything is discourse.
    2. Objects are objects of the mind.
    3. If something can be named or thought (eg. Unicorns) it exists.

  2. What evidence? You’re not giving me evidence. You were giving what appears to you as self evidence. And I’m telling you that it is not self evident to me, and you are choosing to ignore what I’m telling you. you’re not giving me evidence. You were giving what appears to you as self evidence.

  3. At least I know the mechanisms the federal reserve is using.

    I may ask that perhaps one should pay attention to the discourse around god and souls. In this instance it is a discourse, since there are no evidential ones to be found.

  4. Maybe computers are telling you to pull the plug. Just the same as if the federal reserve is manipulating the value of the money that you’re using, and yet because You don’t pay attention to the federal reserve, Youjust think that things are getting more expensive.

  5. Maybe you are projecting that computers are projecting onto humans that we think that they are projecting human features onto it.

    If they are I would say wow. At least some human beings know when to stop an infinite regress. Computers just keep on going until we pull the plug.
