What aspects of our world are arbitary?
By this, I mean something is "arbitrary" if having it the way it is wasn't necessary for life to develop and ask this question.

For example, it's probably not a coincidence that the one planet we know with life has such an exceptional moon:planet size ratio, because tides likely played a big role in the development of life.
But it is arbitrary that the moon perfectly eclipses the sun.

The radioactive parts of our periodic table are arbitrary; while their existence is necessary for Earth to maintain a molten core for billions of years, their specific properties could be randomised and you'd still end up with a bunch of heavy elements in the core with half lives of billions of years.

>> No.12804648

Adding onto the part about radioactive elements, the nonexistence of a perfect RTG isotope is arbitrary.
A perfect RTG isotope has a half life of 10-100 years, emits negligible penetrating radiation, and can be affordably produced in kilogram quantities.

No element with all three of these properties exists, simply due to bad luck with the physics of our universe.
Pu-238 and Gd-148 are the closest. Pu-238 is imperfect because it has signficant penetrating radiation, and Gd-148 is unusable because it can't be produced in significant quantities.

>> No.12804658

If people are biological living open systems with inputs and outputs how much of daily interactive cognitive output and behaviour is controlled by input?
The input from molecules, particles, vibrations and waves. Anything that stores information that goes into and is interpreted by our whole bodies, especially nerves, gut, digestion and brain. All events we experience are included since they are encapsulated through perceived information, especially from photons and phonons. Stored in neurological patterns, muscle memory and nerve bundles? I don't know.
I seem to be developing a paranoid schizoid personality disorder since getting this outlook and am far more careful with what information I consume. I notice how people want to feed me sugar and tell me what's on the news or what they read/heard on the internet all the time.
When I mention this to people they wholeheartedly think I'm joking or am overreacting for thinking this and I fear I have gone completely insane because of it as I and people have become unhealthy i/o machines and a shitty science forum is where I'm posting this on in hopes that anyone feels what I'm saying or can talk me out of it.

I don't think a meaningful distinction between "intrinsic computation" and "input" can be made. All of your mind's computation ultimately works on sensory information.
If you perceive precisely the same image (think head and eye restraints) for a few minutes, then the image disappears from view (this is a part of why your eyes constantly shift about, even when "staring" at something). The same principle applies ad reductio: take away all sensory input, and nothing can be experienced.

The only legitimate excuses are 1. taxonomy's under revision and we don't have a definition of subspecies set in stone yet and 2. real life biology has blurry boundaries.
Working definition of subspecies requires geographical isolation and morphological/biological differences which is true considering only the Dutch and pygmies, but the world also has Italians in it which are not isolated or different enough from either the Dutch or pygmies to be considered a separate subspecies from either. So Italians are either both subspecies at once or there's a line half way through Italy with identical Italians right next to each other but they're the Dutch-italian subspecies on one side and Pygmy-italian on the other.

Quoted By: >>12804981

European whites are, at their core, vertical organizers. They thrive on structure and strong leadership, they are most content and efficient when they simply must stick to their own layer, in their own little box, performing their given role. This makes them trivial to infiltrate and hijack. If you deprive them of racial and ideological homogeneity and any capacity for strong leadership to emerge in their various strata (because they layer, they're not flat organizers by nature) strong leadership cannot emerge, and they incapable of organizing. They will conform to whatever system is thrust upon them so long as it provides for most of their needs, and they will ignore any higher calling because the one's doing the calling do not appear powerful at the outset. That is, there is no clear hierarchy and verticality to the structure, so the idea of participating in it is alien to their mind. They are not creators or architects, they are followers who like a clear role, for a clear purpose which comes down from on high. If you further deprive them of purpose through family and community, they crumble into cowardice and laziness.

European whites, as well as all vertical organizers, are a solved game. Realistically they were done more than a century ago. It would seem to me then that the trans agenda and flooding Europe with immigrants cannot be a final straw. Rather, it's checkmate.

The guides we already have are shit and I think it would be cool to recommend a """quality""" book to young /sci/entists that's not published by (((Springer))).

spacetime is 4 dimensional and water is 4 dimensional too and it fills up the spacetime container it's in pretty well

Probability problem.
I shuffle a deck of 10 cards
Only one card says that you Win
You get to pick 2 random cards.
Now we agree your odds of winning would be 2/10
But what if you turn the first card and it's a blank.
What are the odds that your second card are a win? Is it still 2/10, or did it drop to 1/10 or perhaps it's now 1/9?

This question doesn't even make sense. You need to get better at formulating your thoughts. Are 9 cards blank, and 1 says win? Or is 1 card blank, 1 says win, 8 says lose? I don't even know what you're trying to say here. Is there replacement? If I pick a card and it's not the win, do I put it back in and draw again?

See what I'm getting at? Your question is ill-posed, which is why nobody is answering it. Here's what I'll assume
>Deck of 10 cards
>9 are blank, 1 says win
>Draw two cards, no replacement
>1. What's probability to draw W?
>2. If first card is blank, what's probability 2nd is W?
1. P(draw W) = 1 - P(draw 2 blanks).
P(draw 2 blanks) = 9C2 / 10C2 = 4/5
Equivalently, you can write P(draw W) = 9C1 * 1C1 / 10C2 =1/5.
2. P(draw W | drew blank) = 1C1 / 9C1 = 1/9

Oh yeah I'm bad sorry.
But yes 9 blanks 1 win.

>> No.12804313

there is no redraw.
I just wonder if the fact the probabilities change after you know your first draw is a blank.
The monty hall problem has me confused now.

Von Neumann

>> No.12804745

he had to come up with a frame work of rules that could describe the world while holding the conditions in that experiment consistent. Because his work revolves around space and time, abstract concepts whose true nature is probably the predecessor to formal logic itself, he had to have an intuitive understanding of the least intuitive thing out there.

Von Newman followed basic logic to its natural conclusion. Impressive but not mind blowing. Many did it before him that just did not have access to electricity to be able to build a real computer.

Neumann because had his office near Einstein, and would blast music disrupting Einstein's focus. Neumann was an absolute Chad.
