O_O Meanwhile, I have no idea what you guys are talking about...I'll try to answer what I can XD
And for what reason? It's plausible, but for an energy to just "change radically recently"...It could be spurred by the Mutations, but I can't say for sure.
I didn't mean the nature of the might have energy changed, only the form it took, so to say.
Could you elaborate? More on "form" - What "form" did the energy take that was "radically different" than before? (in your suggestion)
You got it all wrong. What I was referring to was that it indicated the existance of a physically plausible description for what we perceive as "wisdom", "knowledge", or any other aspect of the mind, thus opening the possibility for these to affect the physical reality. You said wisdom was energy, did you not?
True, but bear with me, I just misinterpreted your post because I've never heard of the study before. I think I understand now though from this post:
Information quantity is measured in terms of the Shannon entropy, which is not an energy, and is unrelated to it by any direct means.
It seems you're somewhat still debating this point with Vortex, but that's sort of what I was going on. I didn't have an explanation for the full understanding of Wisdom being an energy - just as how we don't know how Karma can be an energy, though it seems to be one. I was just throwing it out there, but you can elaborate on it as you wish, I have no problem with that.
If you wish. I've chosen to see it as a "damaged foundation" of reality, rather than a "destructive force", that's all.
However, Karma is a "force," in the sense of that word - From what we understand, it's an energy. Elaborate on "foundation" then. I take "foundation" to mean the starting base for anything. So, in your suggestion, Karma was only the groundwork for the destruction it created, though not exactly creating that force itself? And please, if I'm mistaken, don't condescend, we're trying to have a discussion. I hate it when I'm told blatantly that I "don't understand," it'll make things much better.
Well, fine to call it energy, but my simi-sciencey brain wants to know how it actually works, ya know? The terms end up sounding too ad hoc, like 50's scifi movies. "Good god, that is a laser!" "Correct Dr. Scott, a weapon capable of emitting a beam of pure antimatter." Ha! WTF??? (Yeah, that was Rocky Horror Picture Show, but 50's scifi really did get that ad hoc. XD )
I hate to break it to you, but that's not what this Theory's about
As much as I'd love to tell you how "Wisdom Energy" works, it would be adding more assumption to an already sketchy-looking Theory.
For how external stimuli is processed and responded to, or for how awareness arises from these functions? Just a question.
Ahh... AWARENESS is actually something this "energy" might help explain, as that is what we know the least about. Wisdom, knowledge and any other aspect of mind was what I was saying is = to brain. But of course, awareness would be an aspect of that, so here is a *star* for finding yet another of my hidden assumptions. XP XD
But where would the awareness come from? Surroundings?
But in the submachine world, there could perfectly be a physical law that some form of energy (wisdom energy?) and Shannon entropy are directly proportional by some constant (similar to Boltzmann's, but not dependent on any more variables such as temperature), and some of Rooster's considerations may be true in that scenario. Though I don't see how wisdom energy could be acquired by something as subjective as "learning experiences", it is still perfectly plausible since it's a fictional game, and Mateusz is free to choose any physics he wants for it It could be metaphysics too, as Redafro suggests.
EXACTLY MY POINT XD The Theory wasn't intended to show how
Wisdom Energy works, but merely that it exists, in order to explain why we put the Navigator on our head...
That is true, once we have defined a karma energy we can define a karma force as the derivative of the energy respect to the distance, and viceversa. So portals that lead further away need more energy to be opened. And it is clear that you have to do something to open a portal, so inserting some kind of energy is not unreasonable. But what kind of energy it is, that's a very different issue.
Stupid question: What do you mean by "type" (or I may have misunderstood) of energy? Like Heat Energy?
But we don't even know how karma works. And keep in mind that the basic concept of relocation doesn't require energy.
True, we don't know, but that's why we are theorizing, not?
This. Just because we don't know how
it works shouldn't stop us from reaching the conclusion that it is
On the issue of staying within the bounds of the Laws of Physics: It's almost a fact that the SubNet makes its own Laws of Physics. Karma Arms defy the Laws of Physics...See my point?
Edit: I don't know about you guys deviating from the discussion, more than my brain trying to figure out the correlations here...XD
I'm not trying to be mean, but that whole discussion's for a different topic
