Children of The Sun



Yet, this is not the end of the story. The progress in modern biology, complex system, nonlinear science has drawn another humanitarian epic narrative (Wilson, 1999), out of the Darwin jungle one — indeed we are stardust, but we are also children of the sun: “Human social existence, unlike animal sociality, is based on the genetic propensity to form long-term contracts that evolve by culture into moral precepts and law. They evolved over tens or hundreds of millennia because they conferred upon the genes prescribing their survival and the opportunity to be represented in future generations. We are not errant children who occasionally sin by disobeying instructions from outside our species. We are adults who have discovered which covenants are necessary for survival, and we have accepted the necessity of securing them by sacred oath.” --- Artificial Intelligence and Humanities in Measure, Manifold, Learning, and Optimization: A Theory Of Neural Networks

Intellectually, I do three things roughly right now.

Look at the Update panel below for progress.

I do not have anything to show for the second and third thing yet. Help and feedback are very welcome (which can be found in the manuscripts in Theory of NNs), though sadly I started to realize that the writing available for the neural network theory is too obscure to be understood by even experts in the artificial intelligence community, and the writing for philosophy is too under-development to be worth reading.

Let time be on my side.

Updates

  • I am learning Scientific Humanism
  • I am geting the optimization part of the neural network theory published before proceeding.
  • I am studying the development of Chinese civilization: reading Cambridge History of China right now; have made to Volume 8.
