this book was great up until the chapter on AI where it took Searle seriously
I dig the idea of AI as "a self-modifying body of text", but this doesn't really make it fundamentally less real than human intelligence a priori.
Whenever we think verbally, we are possessed by a text (some combination of what we have read and what we have written upon ourselves) and that text speaks through us. When we have other kinds of thoughts we are piloted by other memes.
@chr okay no we have a chance to do þis right and distinguish based on voicing. þis [þ] is a θorn, for voiced dental fricatives; þis [θ] is a θeta, when it's voiceless.
