  • Chatting with ChatGPT - The Collection 1: Nuclear, Brandis, Starfish, Ukraine, War and COVID-19

    This is a series of brief conversations with ChatGPT on a number of controversial subjects. The results are unedited and represent a range of answers, but ChatGPT is not allowed to express opinions and does not access recent news. All in all, it provides an interesting insight into this new technology called “Artificial intelligence” or AI but it is far from perfect at the time of writing in March 2023. I have no doubt that in future it will guide all our discussions.

    Human collection of the Giant Triton and other predators was suggested by Endean (1969) as a causative factor in starfish outbreaks, but this Predator C... more

  • Universal Metadata Standard

    by Andrej Poleev
    Consciousness is based on the association of notions or a neural network. Similarly, the creation of the next generation Internet (semantic web) is impossible without attributes that allow the semantic association of documents and their integration into an information context. To achieve these goals, the Universal Metadata Standard (UMS) may serve as a basis for documentography and is functionally required for interpretation of documents by automatic operating systems.

  • Der Sinn des Lebens und andere psychologische Schriften.

    by Andrej Poleev
    Ist das nicht der Unsinn, der uns alle bedroht und gefährdet? Das ist eine rhetorische Frage, und sie weist schon auf die Antwort hin: Die Fälle und die Erscheinungsformen von Ordnungswahn sind in Deutschland zahlreich und vielfältig infolge der Institutionalisierung des Wahns, weswegen Zwangsvorstellungen und Zwangshandlungen dieser Art nicht als therapiebedürftige Zwangsstörungen gelten, und jegliche Versuche, die Tendenz umzukehren, abgewehrt werden. Lernunfähigkeit und Unbeeinflußbarkeit sch... more
