Questions FFFFC0


See: Topos, PVsNP, Nand, Type theory, Curry-Howard-Lambek, Connectives, Set theory


  • How does predicate logic support a boundary, thus love?


  • Study and explain the cognitive biases of Systems 1 and 2.
  • What is the basis for fallacy? Collect and categorize fallacies.


  • Understand how a Turing machine tape can be represented by two stacks for left and right.


  • Consider the origins of language in the quantification of variables, and then the origins of a self-developing language world in the quantification over predicates.


  • Ar gali būti, kad aibių teorijos problemos (pavyzdžiui, sau nepriklausanti aibė) yra iš tikrųjų logikos problemos? Kaip atskirti aibių teoriją ir logiką (pavyzdžiui, axiom of choice)?

Connectives and perspectives

  • Are Nand gates (Nor gates) related to perspectives?
  • Study how all logical relations derive from composition of Nand gates.
  • How is a Nor gate made from Nand gates? (And vice versa.)

Logic 逻辑

Wikipedia: Logic - A study of the form of argumentation, as opposed to the content. Thus logic considers general aspects of argumentation.

Universal logic


Explore ideas

  • There are only countably many computable programs, and so there are uncountably many nonenumerable sets. But in what sense are these a fiction? Show that any other mindset will also be in the same situation, but one such mindset (God's mindset) can simulate the situation of any other mindset. And those mindsets can simulate God's mindset. Thus consider our relationship with a Universally Superior Constructive Mindset.
  • Jiri Raclavsky - Frege, Tichy - Two-dimensional conception of inference. Inference rules operate on derivations. Go from one truth to another truth, not from one assumption to another assumption.

Ioannis Vandoulakis Logic social process - prover and interpreters (can be teams of agents). Each agent is autonomous. Each agent has its own history, record. Agents may follow different logics of reasoning.

Understanding is a semiotic morphism across semiotic spaces.

Three levels of logic: philosophers, logicians, mathematicians.

Analogical reasoning is creative and useful when logical reasoning does not apply.

Category theory approach: Given objects A and B, choose a morphism F from A to B. Then have a functor M that takes A to M(A) and B to M(B). Then consider whether M(F) goes from M(A) to M(B)? That is, consider, whether M is a functor.

Geometric proportion (division), arithmetic proportion (subtraction) - both used for derivatives. Also, harmonic proportion.

Different ways of defining substitutions: by value, by name, by address? and others

Three brain model:

  • Default mode (no task, sadness, self-reflection, sense of self, day dreaming, mind wandering, not being in the present),
  • salience (self awareness, motivated behavior),
  • Central executive networks (rational, logic, reasoning, planning, response inhibition, problem solving, abtracting, organization).

Default mode takes over in old age.

  • Right brain - big picture, episodic memory.
  • Left brain - details, semantic processing. Integrative. Makes stories to make reality congruent. (To model reality conceptually.)

Cutting corpus callosum - split brain. Feel normal.

Triune brain:

  • reptilian: brainstem and cerebellum
  • limbic brain: pituitary, hypothalamus, hippocampus, amygdala, fornix - like or don't like
  • cerebral cortex: comparative and classificatory aspects

Amygdala - Danger center, negative emotions. Helps to make meaning before signal enters sensory cortex. Creates ideas. Gets ideas from direct experience. Monitoring the situation. Is reduced upon verbalizing, naming the danger (formulating an expectation - so no fright or disgust). (So amygdala notes the inability to formulate an expectation). Example of embodied cognition.

The body has an affect on the mind and interpretation. Movement and its importance. Systems mediated by dopamine (chasing the reward - suspense).

Amygdala indicates if an expectation can be made. Expectations are propositions. Thus we see the source of propositions - the rational mind conceptualizes in terms of propositions - and we see where they enter, and how the emotions tell us if they are sufficient or insufficient (fright, disgust), and if they are satisfied or not satisfied (surprised, sad).

Neo-Pythagorean thinking - generating infinite families - with pebbles. No proof is needed - just step-by-step verification - thus we have verification procedures. Non axiomatic. Verification by construction and inspection. Triangles, pyramids, but no cones.

Pythagoras and Parmenides have no negative statements. For Parmenides statements are either meaningful (true) or not meaningful (false).

Parmenides's semantic viewpoint: Key concepts: that which is (to eon) and thought (noema). True is expressible.

Susieti žaidimų gramatiką su jausmų teorija. Įvardiję lūkestį, nepajusime baimės, nė bjauresio. O ką reiškia įvardyti žmogų? Jį galime mąstyti sąmoningai.

Programs deal with components of objects, thus they are algebraic, an algebra. Programs change one variable state to another. These are mappings. Thus algebras of functions. Superposition.

Naming of a variable allows diassociation of scope. Contextual understanding. The opposite is compositional semantics, which allows not to worry about the context.

Integers - counting - ever introducing a new "pebble".

Update - based on limitation of resources. Natural numbers - based on being able to introduce ever new item - in some dimension. Both are needed for computation.

Six compositions (related to sequence, hierarchy, network?):

  • Superposition

Study brain waves.

Propositions (expectations) create the distinctions (and duality) between truth and falsehood.

Amygdala related to uncertainty, related to entropy.

Brain wave synchronization linked to creativity. Ambiguity makes for freedom. Alzheimer's is a decrease in synchronization.

The emotional system prompts a reading of it which gives a holistic reassessment of the satsifactoriness of our logical system. And also moods can give us a simulation that tests our logical system, especially when our logical system starts to depend on our emotions and tries to game them. Our self is what obeys our logical system and the world is what is beyond it.

Algorithmic algebra. On any domains. Add Floyd-Hoare assertions, can go from programs to predicates, and so get Program specification algebra. Get a threefold mode: Quasiary predicates, quasiary functions, programs.

(Semantic) consequence relation vs. inference relation.

Logical systems - class of algebras considered as program models; ...?; interpretations; consequence relation; inference relation.

Classical logic of n-ary functions. Instead of n-ary functions consider quasiary functions, yielding neoclassical logic. Next level abstraction is for hierarchical (nominative) data such as arrays - logic of nominative data.

Quasiary logics

  • partial predicates - partial and three-valued logics
  • partial assignments - free logic
  • empty domains allowed - inclusive logics
  • extend modal and temporal logica on quasiary mapping

Concepts are the products (outcomes) developed by games. Topics/Comments vs. Subjects/Predicates. Concepts are subjects/topics, what you ask questions about, and comments/predicates/propositions are the answers. How are questions related to perspectives? Then you can ask questions about the questions (syntax) or ask questions directly (semantics).

What is the difference between subject/predicate and topic/comment distinctions? Perhaps there are two different types of "about". A predicate is not a self-standing statement, but requires a subject. Whereas a comment is a self-standing statement without the topic.

All concepts are tentative, conventional, contingent, secondary - we're actually interested in something else - so what we should focus on.

Emotions: naming allows not worrying.

Dominique - logic is a sketch - presentation for category with limits.

Verifying (NP) and solving (P) problems - compare with using variables to create problems (by adding information) and to solve problems (by removing information).

There is one master function which computes all of the computable functions. So study only that one master function.

Relate Ehrhart polynomials to q-analogue of simplex.

Arithmetic hierarchy is based on negation. There exists a y = It is Not that For all y It is Not

  • For all z There exists a y such that For all x There exists a w such that...
  • For all z It is Not that For all y It is Not that For all x

So consciousness, awareness, perspectives, conditionality are all based on negation and universality. And similarly:

  • There exists a z such that It is Not that There exists a y such that It is Not that There exists an x such that It is Not that There exists a w such that...

And so we have a dual set of chains in terms of existence and universality but they are off by a half level so we have to think in terms of both chains, which is why we need the sevensome.

Math variables create problems - in math, both sides are equal (commutative equality) - we have state equality. Computer variables solve problems - the two sides are not equal (noncommutative) - because we are setting the values.

Nondeterministic methods are needed for the P vs. NP proof. My symmetric functions of the eigenvalues of a matrix can be considered such a nondeterministic method. Consider the various P vs. NP problems, what they say about a generic matrix and its eigenvalues. And consider the problem of determining whether two matrices have the same eigenvalues. And recall my combinatorial interpretation of K-1K and whether a monoid can be factored. K-1K - the inverse matrix - is the complement world.

Aštuonerybė sieja algebra ir analizę žinojimo rūmuose, pirm sistemos. Reikėtų bene apversti brėžinį. Mat, algebra remiasi tuščia aibe - vienu lapu sprendimams - o analizė remiasi begaline seka lapų. Ar ta begalinė seka tiek pirmyn, tiek atgal? Ar jinai dvilypė ar ne?

Definition of logic duality: known and unknown. That is the basis of evoltion. Define music as purely syntactic. Four levels.

Žodis "katė" išverčia pasaulį ir protą.

  • => Katė yra pasaulyje ir jos sąvoke prote.
  • Bet žodis "katė" ištartas pasaulyje ir ji atstovauja katės sąvoką.

Pasaulye - prote

  • Katė (pasaulyje) => katės sąvoka
  • Žodis "katė" ("Mačiau katę") <= katės sąvoka
  • Žodis "katė" => bendra sąvoka
  • Bendras žodis ("Man patinka katės") <= bendra sąvoka

Palyginti su požiūrių grandine. Paskutiniame lygmenyje iškyla bendro tikslo (joint intentionality) galimybė, nes yra bendra sąvoka. Gali būti teiginys apie kates.

Dviprasmiškumas - ar taip mąsto vienas protas ar visi protai.

What is a statement of noncontradiction?

Logical duality is very complete, universal, contrived, artificial, expensive, consequential.

Shift from internally structured thing (whether/what) to external relationships (why/how).

Syntax is conscious hierarchy, semantics is unconscious network, sequence relates them. But they all can model each other. Yet how?

Variables are pronouns.

Outcome of game: single trial learning. Inside of game: multiple trial learning. And it is a matter of perspective.

Abstraction is based on duality of variable and value. Double bookkeeping. Distance: Fourfold relation - how related ar they? Completely (a thing in itself) or separated (as a symbol).

Abstraction is separation of symbol from thing and then working with the symbol (in a game). Symbol is object of joint intentionality.

GOD, CONTRADICTION AND PARACONSISTENCY- Sept 16 - 4pm CET - LARAWebiner Is the concept of God contradictory? But what a contradiction really is? Is it a basis or limitation of our thinking? Is the principle of non-contradiction a key to the understanding of reality? If it is, how can we use it properly? Can logical systems that relativize this principle, paraconsistent logics, as promoted by Newton da Costa, help us to clear the way and have a better understanding of God? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this session, which will be based on some recent works by the speakers: - N.A.da Costa and J-Y-Beziau "Is God Paraconsistent?" - Jc Beall, "The Contradictory Christ" - Paul Weingartner, "Theodicy - From a Logical Point of View"

  • Given the eight possibilities of the logical square, what does each of them imply about the system as a whole? For example, all are A says that the system does not have any non-As.
  • The sevensome expresses dualities as seven kinds of opposites.
  • In what sense are And, Or, Not natural switches? And what is the significance that they can create a Nand switch or a Nor switch that is universal? Does this mean that we have supported a simplification, perhaps by the sevensome?
