state of mind

...having an increasing sense of an imminent end to my life... with concomitant thoughts of "what have I really accomplished"? I have a sense of renewed urgency regarding various projects: make a short film, make an interactive artwork, work on the measurement problem in quantum mechanics, work on the problem of truth as it relates to the self-referential "inclusion" paradoxes (a la Godel's Theorem, Russell's Paradox, etc.), work on a meta-programming language, etc. I actually think these projects are all related...

philosophical bumper stickers

To quote Stanislaw Lem in Golem XIV (with typical modesty, speaking in the voice of a transcendent genius supercomputer): "Philosophers are also occupied with keys and locks, except that they make locks to fit the keys, since instead of opening up the world, they postulate one which can be opened with their key. That is why their errors are so instructive."

enigmas of chance :D

Dr. Pearl's talk will review concepts, principles, and mathematical tools that were found useful in applications involving causal reasoning. The principles are based on structural-model semantics, in which functional (or counterfactual) relationships, representing autonomous physical processes are the fundamental building blocks. This semantical framework, enriched with a few ideas from logic and graph theory, enables one to interpret and assess a wide variety of causal and counterfactual relationships from various combinations of data and theoretical modeling assumptions.

BTW TWF IMP

Now that I've thrown around enough buzzwords to scare off the kids, I can tell you about Lee Smolin's talk, which was definitely X-rated: for adults only, people who can listen to speculations with just the right mixture of disbelief and open-mindedness. It was the last talk in the conference. And it was about the possible physical effects of spin networks with "hidden edges"!
