Guys, we are all AI's. Now that's an idea!

But yeah I love these type of paradox/facts/theory's Like the "cat in the box" theory, which claims that it's our conscious that controls the world, how it works, or so to say.

Btw: Did you just copy and paste it from that other site xD?

I find it odd that I already knew this ........... Also I had a thought awhile ago that this could be used to make virtual reality more realistic like in SAO or by turning ur mind into a dream state and controlling those dreams but that's just my thoughts

I've heard (from a game) that all our thoughts and brain processes connects to one super computer and every time we think or speak, we send signals to and from that machine

Exactly.

At least, at the moment.
My geometry work = terribad.

to be honest, my entire brain has been lazy lately. I'm just procrastinating and procrastinating. it's not like I'm dumb, I'm just lazy.


OT / perhaps? obligatory bitching (since the quantum computer stuff was mentioned in my now dead thread):
My damn deep web thread was nuked and I have no fucking idea why.
Oh well.

Did you you know that all things in the universe are connected? Before the Big Bang, all matter in the universe was once one mega particle hence all things in existence are already entangled. Wake up.



That is not the same thing as quantum entanglement. Go learn what it really is and means before you start applying a mystical connection between everything.


I enjoy watching pseudoscience spread throughout the gullible masses. It's quite entertaining.

So very true. A lot of people get away with peddling crackpot theories solely because the theories "sound" good and victims aren't skeptical enough.

No, you are the gullible one for believing in the mainstream bullshit. Wait, are you a disinformation agent?

Oh, really? Then what exactly do I believe? Since you seem to know me so well.

You're the one posting pseudoscience and calling it fact. Show one piece of evidence that supports this garbage.

You beat me to it! I was going to say something about how the article provides no concrete evidence that the brain is a "quantum computer" other than some very loose correlations. There are huge gaping holes in the argument for this hypothesis and the author has completely misunderstood the term "Phase conjugate quantum resonance." Notice I referred to the idea of our brains being "quantum computers" as a hypothesis, as it doesn't even come close to qualifying as a theory in the scientific sense. Also, it seem the author has no idea what a quantum computer really is or how it works.

Despite all this, I wouldn't completely dismiss the hypothesis. It is an interesting topic to ponder about. There currently isn't any evidence to say that our brains transmits data at the quantum level, but there isn't any evidence that says that it doesn't either... although it doesn't seem very likely considering our brains are hardly what you would call a closed system, and any quantum processes needs a closed system with a managed decoherence in order to be effective, lest the wave functions collapse to a single probabilistic state, in which case good old classical physics applies and the whole quantum business goes away.

Also, to the OP: our brains are already 10x more powerful than the best supercomputer we can build.

While we can't, and maybe shouldn't, dismiss the hypothesis, we also shouldn't give it undue credence. Without evidence, it's just an interesting idea to talk about. It can't be used to provide predictions so it will never be a theory in a scientific sense. And without that basis, it should never be used to form any sort of medical decision. We have too many of those bad ideas floating around already.

This is true. It's hard to believe that because we tend to think of raw computing power as intelligence for humans, or more simply, how smart someone is. But there's so much more to it. Watch a professional pianist play a spectacularly difficult piece, or watch a professional sports player throw a ball to a moving target 50 yards away. All of that requires tactical and calculated precision also known as muscle memory.

^ download your brain into a cyborg body like ghost in the shell o.O that'd be crazy. Maybe not even fully download it. Maybe telling the computer to control a fake body with your mind through this communication.


Actually, an organic body has the potential to be superior to any type of machine body. Going to a machine body is a downgrade, in my opinion.



Why assume you could only download to a machine? Another brain could could work just as well.

But it could work as an explanation for zombies in a story. Hmmmmmmm.(thinking)

Exactly, you can download your soul/your quantum self/true self into another brain/body. You body is just an organic robot. You are not your body.
