“All Language Consists of Measurements”

We don’t think of it geometrically but that’s the best frame for representing it’s organization. Our senses (nervous system) register pulses, which vary only in on-off, and frequency – a measurement – and we combine those measurements, because our body is a system of commensurability, into a world-model useful for our actions. Then we describe the world in combinations of sense-perceptions.

The second fundamental problem with AI so far (aside from our hardware is architected inversely) is that it has no system of commensurability like we have – the body – and so it cannot develop consciousness: a model with predictive differences given our possible actions (physical, logical, verbal).

Archetypes – prototype measurements of combinations of instincts

Stereotypes – consistent predictions from measurements.

In the Foundations Course, I frame our consciousness geometrically from the start.

Unfortunately constitution and revolution is more pressing than continuing work on consciousness and behaviour but I will get there….
