What makes a brain thinks? Some thought experiements.

What makes a brain thinks? Some thought experiements.


thanks for the share story yo my way
here I was taken over and I was
fortunate enough to have a very cool
conversation with the uber driver and
maybe share this discussion maybe we
should move on we can talk more about
this later on and of course some of you
here in the city of Cambridge are our
philosophy major so you know maybe what
I’m saying right now
oops I’m amateurish Singh and you leave
that if you’re watching this on YouTube
leave a comment below and continue this
discussion so I walk into I step into my
the uber car and then Dubai driver asked
what I do for a living and I told him
when we have been fair fists and and he
asked me this sort of profound question
that you know what makes the brain
fakery now that is a deep question I’m
not sure hey I know how deep the
question was so it works at many level
right what makes the brain brain think
I’ll take a minute and think about it
now so when when somebody asked this
question or if somebody ever asked this
question to you they even a PI asking
this question you’re acknowledging that
there are two entities in in your body
of mine right one is your brain and one
is the editing that makes your brain
think
the computer can do a lot of things you
can I don’t know if you can call it a
thinking or not there are many computer
engineer in this town and you can
correct me or even join in the
discussion but what makes a computer at
least you know by our standards think
and computer listen think by itself
right
somebody has to be program it and even
if you’re not a programmer if you like a
gamer or something when you’re just
using the application nothing wrong with
that they still have their still need
somebody’s finger to type in the
keyboard to initiate the thoughts right
so it’s the brain right so you know it’s
just moving on the discussion well to
preview the answer no to not thinking
you know spoiler spoiler alert there’s
no answer it is we’re just taking a man
and using our curiosity and good in your
conversation now are you your brain
right or are you and your brain separate
entity now of course this has been asked
by de carga and we can go in your
document are you thinking of the brain
or is to bring doing the thinking for
you you see the difference there but in
order to ask if the brain
what makes the brain fake you’re already
acknowledging that there’s something
that costs the brain to think that the
brain doesn’t think myself
and that’s the thought experiment right
now a brain can think of many things
right right now you’re watching this
television there are thoughts in your
head but there are also a lot of
thoughts or a lot of brain functions
that are laying dormant and inert in
your brain right now right you’re
breaking your math and I just like for
most of our brains in Cambridge can do
pretty advanced math like differential
calculus and things of that but unless
you go make your brain do these
calculations it is chess in mercury so
there must be another part that could be
in your body or when a negative is all
that mix to bring go do these
calculations don’t think of like a happy
place or imagine yourself on the
pacification on a cruise ship or what
not now before I had mentioned that and
ask you to use your mind and imagination
to think about unification even though
you’re perfectly capable of thinking of
your perfect vacation
tenability is dormant and inert in your
brain there is a part of you that don’t
make your brain think about your perfect
location right and the gentleman that
started me asked some pretty fun
question as well he said
well we asked him you know this does
thinking only applies to human right
this is question only applies to human
and weird we’re talking about you know
if a computer let’s say a computer has
been running since the beginning of time
and nobody knows what pushes the first
button you know nobody knows how who
turned on this computer but it has been
gone forever and this computer has been
doing a lot of great things you know how
to tell the better you know give us
answered and medicine in the one on
inner join database great but that’s
just computer fake even nobody made it
give any instructions
yesterday maybe it was reprogram the
billion-year but thus that computer
think this is computer aware that it is
thinking right so the gentleman on the
cat-lair for us keep asking questions
and I appreciate him for doing that in
the end and then you ask what about
self-improvement like
you know he has ten dollars in his
pocket right now and he means to go make
$20 right of course you know we go back
the same question that you have to
instruct your brain to go think about
make that $20 and and you know we can
use operant conditioning to explain a
lot of things but operant conditioning
also does not explain the flood itself
so so I guess like moving on from there
we can we can program any most of things
by using reward and Punishment or
calling the operant conditioning right
if it does what we wants we give them an
award if it doesn’t do what who once we
need to take away the word or punish
them and you know this was the same way
Society had asked over every thought
this is that thinking now we talked
about you know harder than human
thoughts we were talking about dogs
right no it gave the example of Sherpa
dog could independently about the Train
chance how many sheep or more I don’t
know if that’s true but like more or
less count how many sheep days well if
there was a sheep that needs to be
accounted you know a border collie my
Sherpa dog to go find it without
instructions
you should get a chihuahua to do that he
can condition and it’s not like that you
always smarter than that water calling
but you can’t become reward and punish
and she loved him all day long
and it would not have the awareness to
do what a bother calling could do so
even if though it is the same species we
can say that there were thoughts in a
border collie that enables it to to
independently plan and execute Shepherd
shepherding you know a a large stock of
animals to to we’re supposed to go right
of course you know conditioning could
help but it is not from what I’ve been
told it’s like they could just do that
brand ads on his own
right and what causes the border collie
to go that way now we talked about what
about he asked the question slobber and
ends who has good work ethics what does
an ends fakery
I don’t know I’m not a means maybe it
does maybe in an ends mine you know it
is excited in sixty or something
watching I don’t know I can’t see it but
we can say that that is hardwired
include an end to to perform its
function and if it is a hardwired action
genetically hardwired action it’s that a
false word yes it’s the end thinking
which may be thinking but like to
perform its function does it require
force to do that okay
my freshman professor the preferred who
gave this example there are all animals
that could perform complex instinctual
functions like a a and migrating bird
instinctively would know how to fly in
formation for now
thousands and thousands of miles and it
extinct tively know where to go as a
season change it versus up gps but they
vary in watch National Geographic Center
so that oh yeah you know this is where
the food is so this is the warmer
weather or this is the air currents in
is Ableton computes all of that without
any instructions now migrating bird
could have a lot of thoughts right I
don’t know who I’m not off bird another
you know let’s go read a bird’s mind
maybe in this way flying off itself you
know it does it is thinking the same
thoughts that I’m thinking right now you
know maybe one of the bird is thinking
that it is all be live and talking about
uh birds you know I don’t know maybe in
the birds my you know it is it has the
wisdom of the universe
that is possible but I can’t see you I
don’t know but it’s safe to say that a
brick could perform all that fulfill
thinking you know now this is not like
like I’ve made the distinction but it’s
not to say that while it is doing it it
does not require it is light at the same
time thinking of funny things or cool
things or whatnot it’s like he went
picking itself up and walking you know
it is so much easier to walk on all
fours when you were talking but it is
something instinctual and and you don’t
have to be taught how to walk you just
know right even though it takes
engineers they’re like it it’s not until
like recently the engineers figured how
to program a robot to walk in for the
long time it is the longest mathematical
history but it turns out that in the
hypothesis is that you don’t actually
your body doesn’t actually talk for him
to to move your body to walk it is every
time you walk in creating balance and
then your your body learns adjust that
balance but that is a different topic
way but you can walk and chew gum at the
same time you can walk and have a
conscious – inkling and then you know
and Andover is getting closer and closer
to CCTV and then he asked another
question you know he sees a smoker and
at some point in his mind he wanted to
quit smoking but it ends well it cost
everybody so I guess like
that is a good questions and that makes
me also favorite a brain by itself is an
inert object it’s kind of like a set of
dominoes itself Domino’s is just there
it is inert now the forces of gravity
you can see the out of my reason why
these Domino’s was because of property
but it’s not because of gravity that the
dominoes started to fall apart when the
whatnot doctor made think the only
reason why the set of dominoes felt it’s
because you another conscious mind push
the first domino and in the whole sack
force right now for some reason they
told me the other super they were saying
you know I I asked him to think that in
order for him to have this current
thought he must have a last thoughts
right and and for his cigarette smoking
we can we can say the nature is
inspecting to look at chemical
dependence or a pleasure principle kind
of tent dependence ask yourself
