2021.09.26 04:54 Inorganicelf Why mind upload might be possible in the near future
In modern days, we tend to think that mind upload would occur in bits systems so the ‘you’ that had been updated to the cloud or something similar, ‘essentially‘ would be something different than you on real life, so even if it is based on your consciousness, it might differ from yourself, personalities, tastes,etc… Same as a machine, even if we have the same code inputted on a program , if we don’t have the language to interpret it, it may differ from the real deal. Furthermore, if we use classical computers, algorithms, and neural networks to retrieve, store, and run human data, the results will probably be ineffective at best. We’re quantum beings living in a quantum universe, classical computations don’t translate. But quantum computing isn’t limited by the binary thinking necessary for classical systems to operate. In 1989, Oxford mathematician Roger Penrose proposed that no standard, classical model of computing would ever explain how the brain produces thought and conscious experience. The suggestion intrigued a lot of people, not least an Arizona-based anaesthetist called Stuart Hameroff, who suggested a specific way for quantum effects to get involved.
The crux of the idea was that microtubules – protein tubes that make up neurons’ support structure – exploit quantum effects to exist in “superpositions” of two different shapes at once. Each of these shapes amounts to a bit of classical information, so this shape-shifting quantum bit, or qubit, can store twice as much information as its classical counterpart.
Add quantum entanglement to the mix – a quantum feature that allows qubit states to remain intertwined even when not in contact – and you rapidly build a quantum computer that can manipulate and store information far more efficiently than any classical computer. Adding that in the 1990s, long before winning the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics for his prediction of black holes, physicist Roger Penrose teamed up with anaesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff to propose an ambitious answer.
They claimed that the brain’s neuronal system forms an intricate network and that the consciousness this produces should obey the rules of quantum mechanics – the theory that determines how tiny particles like electrons move around. This, they argue, could explain the mysterious complexity of human consciousness.
The Penrose-Hameroff theory of quantum consciousness argues that microtubules are structured in a fractal pattern which would enable quantum processes to occur.
Fractals are structures that are neither two-dimensional nor three-dimensional, but are instead some fractional value in between. In mathematics, fractals emerge as beautiful patterns that repeat themselves infinitely, generating what is seemingly impossible: a structure that has a finite area, but an infinite perimeter.This might sound impossible to visualise, but fractals actually occur frequently in nature. If you look closely at the florets of a cauliflower or the branches of a fern, you’ll see that they’re both made up of the same basic shape repeating itself over and over again, but at smaller and smaller scales. That’s a key characteristic of fractals. According to what him said “We’re not yet able to measure the behaviour of quantum fractals in the brain – if they exist at all. But advanced technology means we can now measure quantum fractals in the lab. In recent research involving a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM), my colleagues at Utrecht and I carefully arranged electrons in a fractal pattern, creating a quantum fractal.
When we then measured the wave function of the electrons, which describes their quantum state, we found that they too lived at the fractal dimension dictated by the physical pattern we’d made. In this case, the pattern we used on the quantum scale was the Sierpiński triangle, which is a shape that’s somewhere between one-dimensional and two-dimensional.
This was an exciting finding, but STM techniques cannot probe how quantum particles move – which would tell us more about how quantum processes might occur in the brain. So in our latest research, my colleagues at Shanghai Jiaotong University and I went one step further. Using state-of-the-art photonics experiments, we were able to reveal the quantum motion that takes place within fractals in unprecedented detail.
We achieved this by injecting photons (particles of light) into an artificial chip that was painstakingly engineered into a tiny Sierpiński triangle. We injected photons at the tip of the triangle and watched how they spread throughout its fractal structure in a process called quantum transport. We then repeated this experiment on two different fractal structures, both shaped as squares rather than triangles. And in each of these structures we conducted hundreds of experiments.
Our observations from these experiments reveal that quantum fractals actually behave in a different way to classical ones. Specifically, we found that the spread of light across a fractal is governed by different laws in the quantum case compared to the classical case.
This new knowledge of quantum fractals could provide the foundations for scientists to experimentally test the theory of quantum consciousness. If quantum measurements are one day taken from the human brain, they could be compared against our results to definitely decide whether consciousness is a classical or a quantum phenomenon.
Our work could also have profound implications across scientific fields. By investigating quantum transport in our artificially designed fractal structures, we may have taken the first tiny steps towards the unification of physics, mathematics and biology, which could greatly enrich our understanding of the world around us as well as the world that exists in our heads.“

2021.09.26 04:54 mrkro3434 I think Halo Infinite multiplayer is where I'll say goodbye.
To be clear, I've been a part of the play tests for Infinite multiplayer.
I was the target audience for Halo growing up. Middle school for me was playing Halo CE with friends on LAN. Transitioning into Highschool, when DSL internet became wide spread, Halo 2 was everything.
I've played every iteration of the game until now, but having played the beta I can firmly say, this feels like call of duty with a little bit of halo sprinkles.
I understand the need to adapt to a newer market, but right now a round of Slayer feels like SWAT with how quick you die from across the map from the basic pistol.

2021.09.26 04:54 Designerthrow72 Offline/Online Question
Out of curiosity, does anyone know what it means when someone keeps going online and then offline on slack?
I keep seeing this activity with someone I supervise on weekends. Perhaps it's checking the phone, or going online at the moment to check something at work? If the person is online, does that mean they're active on slack on the weekend? I'd like to know. Thanks.

2021.09.26 04:54 AlwaysFluffy93 WS X GYMSHARK ORDER
My order still has not been processed yet. It still says “unfulfilled”- does anyone know when it will ship? Time frame?
I contact Gymshark Help (lol there not that much of a help tbh) and ask what was holding my order up. They said:
“ We apologise it appears that there has been a shortage in our warehouse with one of your items, our Logistics Team will be in touch with you shortly by email with a full explanation and compensation.
Once the refund is actioned, it can take up to 5 working days for the refund to be credited back into your bank account.
It may take up to 48 hours to be credited back into your PayPal account.
Sorry no, a shortage means that that item is now out of stock and a refund has been issued to you for this. “
I asked them about which item- and they said the medium mink sports bra was out of stock (OOS). Okay, fine whatever. But like what about the other 5 items in that order??? Like is there a possibility that more items will be OOS? I mean why be so mysterious and not give a straight answer about the time frame.
I’m just frustrated at this point.

2021.09.26 04:54 Pebble_Plays Should I change up my build?
Hey guys, I’m playing SOTFS and I’m level 99, in iron keep right now. I just beat the smelter demon, with no small difficulty, and I am really struggling right now, but maybe I just suck. So I’ve been trying to make a faith build, because I dont like PVP at all and somebody said it’s good for PVE. How do I make it not suck or something? I’m using a lightning infused mace+10, rocking drangleic armor and elite knight helm, I’ve got 30 vig, 30 faith, 16 str, 10 dex, and 20 end. If I could get some advice on what to do that would be great. The only miracles I have that do damage are emit force 8 casts and lightning spear 3 casts. I don’t know what to do, or if I change up my build somehow. I hope this makes sense, please advise so I can enjoy the game even more

Hey Everyone I've been in this rabbithole for one whole year! Isn't that insane?? So something that I have been looking for, and something I assumed already existed, was an Usada Kensetsu complete story or playlist or something that consolidated the UsaKen story from the beginning to present (or at least the summer festival) But I have not seen anything of that sort! So I was wondering if anyone wanted to help make a Playlist or something to document the story?

2021.09.26 04:54 OscarBale Kingdom Hearts fan fiction
It’s been so long since ‘Kaburion’, an amazing artist, had posted on Twitter some AU drawings of KH, but I still didn’t find anything based on it, or close to it. The drawings, for the ones who don’t know about them, are based on Riku being interested in Sora, a Sora who’s shy to speak up and lives on his own with a dog and a duck, you can guess their names. It’s, I guess, based on college times, but I’d really like to read more of that.
Perhaps, I am dumb and didn’t find the fan fiction someone might have written after this, so if anyone knows them, please share the links in the comments, thank you!

2021.09.26 04:54 AcademicSavings634 Is their more places in Avalar than what we saw in Riptos Rage?
The game stops at Winter Tundra but I wonder if theirs other castles or other locations in the game that exist offscreen. During the game Hunter does mention theirs an Avalar Zoo. Also later on in Shadow Legacy we do see another realm called Savannah which didn’t previously appear.
