Platonic dualism was transmitted to early modern philosophy via St Augustine, who married orphic dualism with Christianity. Augustine's conception was one of the fundamental inspirations for Cartesian metaphysics. Cartesian dualism was a three legged stool, the legs of which are a philosophical vision of the mechanical view of physical universe, the reduction of life to mechanism, and an irreducibly private conception of the mental and the identification of the mind with consciousness. Despite the fact that Kant had inflicted grave damage on the Cartesian conception, Cartesian dualism survived in psychology until the rise of behaviourism, and in neuroscience until after the Second World War. Its demise, however, did not lead to the revival of the integrated monism advanced by Aristotle and espoused by Aquinas. Rather it led to a form of degenerate Cartesianism that might be caricatured as brain/body dualism. Although brain/body dualism accepts substance-monism, the psychological predicates Descartes ascribed to the mind are now ascribed to the brain, and the rest of the conceptual structure erected by Descartes is left intact. But replacing ethereal non-matter by grey glutinous matter does not even touch the deep conceptual confusions of Cartesianism. Philosophers have contributed their share to the confusions by representing the brain as a limiting case of a mutilated human being. Hence the human person is held to be identical with the brain. This, as will be shown, is 'nonsense on stilts'.

Move Beyond Trade-Off Thinking. When it comes to our hardest choices, it can seem as though making trade-offs is inevitable. But what about those crucial times when accepting the obvious trade-off just isn't good enough? What do we do when the choices in front of us don't get us what we need? In those cases, rather than choosing the least worst option, we can use the models in front of us to create a new and superior answer. This is integrative thinking. First introduced by world-renowned strategic thinker Roger Martin in "The Opposable Mind," integrative thinking is an approach to problem solving that uses opposing ideas as the basis for innovation. Now, in "Creating Great Choices," Martin and his longtime thinking partner Jennifer Riel vividly illustrate how integrative thinking works, and how to do it. The book includes fresh stories of successful integrative thinkers that will demystify the process of creative problem solving, as well as practical tools and exercises to help readers engage with the ideas. And it lays out the authors' four-step methodology for creating great choices, which can be applied in virtually any context. The result is a replicable, thoughtful approach to finding a "third and better way" to make important choices in the face of unacceptable trade‐offs. Insightful and instructive, "Creating Great Choices" blends storytelling, theory, and hands-on advice to help any leader or manager facing a tough choice.

The question of the nature of the relationship between someone's mind and body has been on the philosophical agenda at least since Socrates. It has been remarkably refractory. If one has a mind and has a body, who or what is it that possesses such things? Is it one's mind that has a body or one's body that has a mind? Or is it the self that has both? Or the person? Scrutiny of the misleading possessive form of representation sheds light on the matter. To have a mind, as Aristotle already knew, is to possess an array of rational powers of intellect and will. To have a body is to possess an array of somatic characteristics. The possessor is the living human being. Human beings are living organisms, self-moving, rational substances consisting of matter. So theyare bodies. But the body one is must not be confused with the body one has (one cannot have what one is). Since the mind one has is not a thing of any kind, and the body one has is merely a set of somatic properties, there is no relation between someone's mind and body, any more than there is a relation between being green and having the value of five pounds. But, of course, one can have a variety of attitudes towards one's body and towards one's mind.

After the work of Diophantus, there was something of a lapse in interest in pure number theory for quite some while. Around 1300 Gersonides developed the connection between the Binomial theorem and combinatorics, and then in the 17th century the topic was again taken up, notably by Fermat, and then by Euler, Lagrange, Legendre and Gauss. We discuss several notable results of Fermat, including of course his famous last theorem, also his work on sums of squares, Pell's equation, primes, and rational points on curves. The rational parametrization of the Folium of Descartes is shown, using the technique of Fermat. We also state Fermat's little theorem using the modular arithmetic language introduced by Gauss.

Can we ever really know anything? In this episode, we explore Descartes' Cogito Ergo Sum, discuss how other philosophers would have reacted to it, and whether it still makes sense today. Some topics we'll explore: - What did Hume and Nietzsche say about Decartes' argument? - Is "I think therefore I am" a valid argument? - Is there anything we can know for sure? - How should we operate in the world given the reality of uncertainty? - Is philosophy bullshit, as Robert Brown asserts? By the end of this episode, you'll have a better understanding of what Descartes was saying, and what that means for your life.

Migkiller tries to establish mind-body dualism by appealing to (1) imagining our mind without the body, (2) mental states vs. brain states, (3) free will and (4) persistent identity. I take these arguments on one by one, showing why each fails. I culminate by analyzing his attempt to use mind-body dualism to prove that abortion is immoral, showing that even if he's right about dualism, that proves the very opposite of what he thought it did. Sorry if the editing is choppy, I had to trim this down from 15 minutes.

Philipp Kant is Director of Formal Methods at IOHK. In this video, he explains what formal methods are and why they are important to designing and building cryptocurrencies. Turning research papers into machine-executable code is a lengthy and precise process, and one that must be conducted carefully. IOHK is adopting formal methods in its development process to create software that is robust and reliable. Philipp explains how research papers are transcribed into an executable specification, and the further steps that refine this specification. His talk was part of an IOHK technical presentation on Cardano given in Hamburg in April, 2018. Philipp obtained his PhD in theoretical physics from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. He spent six years as a researcher, studying the Higgs boson, top quarks, and developing algorithms for calculations in perturbative quantum field theory. Since 2014, he is working in software development, using primarily Haskell for projects in areas such as distributed computing, data management, and econometrics.

Terence McKenna spoke and wrote about psychedelic drugs, plant-based entheogens, shamanism, metaphysics, alchemy, language, culture, technology, and the theoretical origins of human consciousness. McKenna said that one of his early psychedelic experiences with morning glory seeds showed him "that there was something there worth pursuing", and in interviews he claimed to have smoked cannabis daily since his teens. After the partial completion of his studies, and his mother's death from cancer in 1971, McKenna, his brother Dennis, and 3 friends traveled to the Colombian Amazon in search of a plant preparation containing dimethyltryptamine (DMT). They found various forms of ayahuasca, or yagé, and fields full of gigantic Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms, which became the focus of the expedition. Terence McKenna advocated the exploration of altered states of mind via the ingestion of naturally occurring psychedelic substances. During McKenna's studies, he developed a technique for cultivating psilocybin mushrooms with Dennis and in 1976, the brothers published what they had learned in a book entitled Psilocybin: Magic Mushroom Grower's Guide. In the early 1980s, McKenna began to speak publicly on the topic of psychedelic drugs. McKenna soon became a fixture of popular counterculture with Timothy Leary once introducing him as "one of the five or six most important people on the planet." McKenna spoke on a wide array of subjects including; shamanism; metaphysics; alchemy; language; culture; self-empowerment; techno-paganism; artificial intelligence; evolution; extraterrestrials; science and scientism; the web; virtual reality and aesthetic theory or art/visual experience as information. In mid-1999, after a long lecturing tour, McKenna returned to his home on the Big Island of Hawaii. A longtime sufferer of migraines, McKenna had begun to have increasingly painful headaches. His condition culminated in three brain seizures in one night, which he claimed were the most powerful psychedelic experiences he had ever known. McKenna was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a highly aggressive form of brain cancer. McKenna died on April 3, 2000, at the age of 53. If you enjoyed this video please leave a comment.

FLT for powers of n odd, n greater than 2 X(n) + Y(n) = Z(n) We can construct a right triangle with legs X(n/2), Y(n/2), Z(n/2) We can label z(n/2) =C So C(2) = Z(n) By re-arranging the formula we get Z=C(2)/Z(n-1) where C(2) and Z(n-1) are integer. The claim is that Z must be irrational. The proof of that is to claim Z is rational and prove a contradiction. The proof is modeled after the proof that square root of 3 is irrational. First, Z=C(2)/Z(n-1) is in simplest form. Amuse Z(n-1), Z are even, then C(2) must also be even. This is a contradiction that Z. Z(n-1) , C(2) are simplest for, as the equation can be divided by 2 again. Now assume that Z(n-1), Z are odd, then C(2) must also be odd Let C(2) = 2h +1 and Z(n-1) = 2k +1 where h,k are integer (2h +1) = Z(2) ( 2k +1) Now square the the entire equation (2h +1) (2)= Z(4) ( 2k +1)(2) expanding equation becomes 4h(2) + 4 h +1 = Z(4)(4k(2) + 4k + 1) expanding rhs 4h(2) + 4 h +1 = Z(4)(4k(2) +Z(2) 4k + Z(2) Subtract 1 from both sides 4h(2) + 4 h = Z(4)(4k(2) +Z(4) 4k + Z(4) – 1 Both LHS and RHS are even so we divide both sides by 2 2h(2) + 2 h = Z(2)(2k(2) +Z(2) 2k + (Z(2) – 1)/2 (Z(2) – 1)/2 IS ODD , SINCE Z(4) – 1 IS EVEN But now it is apparent that LHS is even, but RHS is odd So the assumption that Z is integer is false. It should now be evident that the proof also works when the power n , when positive, also works. This proves FLT, just as Fermat was able to prove for himself.

Google Tech Talks September 2, 2008 ABSTRACT We have been brought up to believe that the mind is located inside the head. But there are good reasons for thinking that this view is too limited. Recent experimental results show that people can influence others at a distance just by looking at them, even if they look from behind and if all sensory clues are eliminated. And people's intentions can be detected by animals from miles away. The commonest kind of non-local interaction mental influence occurs in connection with telephone calls, where most people have had the experience of thinking of someone shortly before they ring. Controlled, randomized tests on telephone telepathy have given highly significant positive results. Research techniques have now been automated and experiments on telepathy are now being conducted through the internet and cell phones, enabling widespread participation. Speaker: Rupert Sheldrake Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D. is a biologist and author of more than 75 technical papers and ten books, the most recent being The Sense of Being Stared At. He studied at Cambridge and Harvard Universities, was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge and a Research Fellow of the Royal Society. He is currently Director of the Perrott-Warrick project, funded from Trinity College Cambridge.

What better way to ensure security， than using parts of your body as the key. The market for technology that relies on recognizing parts of the human body to grant access is growing. Kim Min－ji informs us of the potential of this industry. You may have seen high－tech tools that scan your eyes or fingerprints in the movies － but the technology， known as biometric authentication， is gradually becoming a part of our daily lives. This company uses facial recognition to identify workers， allow them into the building， and track their attendance. It only takes a second to verify and match the person′s face with the stored data. Not only is it convenient but it′s more secure，... as people′s unique facial features are almost impossible to replicate. But it′s not just businesses using the tech，... apartment complexes are adopting the system. ″Entering your home is going to get a lot easier. You′ll no longer need keys or even need to press in a pass－code. This facial recognition system not only makes your house more secure，.. it′s also completely hassle－free.″ Biometric authentication is gaining popularity as a new means of identification， replacing the predominant system of numerical or text passwords. The global market is expected to reach 16－point－7 billion U.S. dollars by 2019，... more than a three－fold increase since 2012. The growth comes on the back of the rise of fintech or financial technology that requires a high level of security as it becomes easier to make payments. Technology that can read you eyes has also been developed. ″With iris recognition， users can worry less about their identity being falsely used. Iris is very unique， and even twins have different iris characteristics.″ In just a blink of an eye， a transaction can be made simply by looking into a device. A local card company is planning to implement this system to make transactions easier. But like all other previous methods of identification， biometric security features come with risks. ″Strong measures need to be taken to prevent biometric data leaks. If it′s being stored it means it can be leaked. Passwords can be reset， and cards can be reissued if lost but biometric features cannot be changed.″ There are also doubts whether the new authentication systems will become widely used，.. as some people may be uncomfortable having their biometric information saved on a database. Kim Min－ji， Arirang News.
