    Why is Germany so excellent at producing intelligent and sensible women?

    (Because it is not) But we like them. As everybody does.

    For some reason this Sabine vid sparked an idea. See the Maths thread for details (pending)

    More Yay Sabine!!!

    I especially like her dig at Stephen's cellular automata stuff.

    I imagine she receives far, far worse than hypergraphs.

    I agree with her about the simulation hypothesis. Bostrom wanders lost in a forest of philosophical logic. This is relatively easy amid the dreaming spires of Oxford.

    It leads inevitably to infinite regress. If we are simulated, living in a simulation... what's to say that the next layer up is not also a sim? How do the simulators know that they are simulated, or real? It's simulation all the way up as well as down.

    So if you are going to believe that, you might as well believe in turtles, or omnipotent creator gods. Therefore, whether it is true or not, the idea must be rejected as .... insane. Or at least unbelievable.

    Hurray for Sabine again!

    Where is sonoboy when he could learn something.


    Well...maybe not...

    So you too pine for the return of sonoboy.

    I'd like to put him on a debate stage with Dr. Hossenfelder.

    Looks like Sabine smoked some straws of the silly weed:
