I'd better introduce myself since i am new to the sl4
My name is Simon (nick: simdizzy on the IRC
chatrooms), i am 22 yrs old from england, UK.
Previously i have studied mathematics to degree level
and ive long been interested in fractals, chaos theory
and cellular automaton.
It is clear i have joined at the right time because i
am also very interested in multiverse theories and the
all possible universes hypothesis (embodied by the
tegmark/schmidhuber ensembles). These ideas have
become very intuitive to me and i now moreorless take
it for granted that all formal systems and conceivable
mathematical structures exist independently in the
same way that our universe exists; our universe is
just such a system and so it is equal in status to a
mathematical structure and that explains why our
universe exists too.
In terms of shock levels i would say i am SL4 but im
not sure about the whole catergorisation thing. I dont
think ive ever read an SF novel in my life.
and more recently:
Anyway enough of me, i hope for some good futurist
discussions in the pre-Singularity future.
For a better Internet experience
