Make it stop, /sci/. I'm a coomer and I literally have been masturbating every day since I was 13. I fap at least 2-3 times a day and the first time I had sex I didn't even feel good. I didn't even cum.

I want to devote my life to studying mathematics. What the fuck meds do I need to go on to suppress my hornyness. It's literally shaping the way I think.

every time you watch porn or want to wank just compare this activity to the activity you'd like yourself to be doing (studying, right?)

Imagine living on a doomed earth, being constantly beset upon by refugees and sub 60iq dirt scratchers and working to supply surplus value to satanic pedophile elites FOREVER while any possibility of history or cultural development ever happening again vanishes. Also there will be pornography openly broadcast on TV and valium in the water supply to keep you compliant, a steak will cost 1 billion dollars, microplastics in the air you breathe and you will live in a 4 foot but 4 foot by 4 foot cube. FOREVER.

I don't think the evidence is clear on this. It seems to me that it's more likely that's just the time by which most people have fallen into their societal role and no longer have an expectation of growth upon them. It's also a very convenient cope for people who do nothing with their lives forever.

If the engineers making the STB say the rings are a serious risk of catastrophic failure, and you ignore them and pressure their pussy ass supervisors into agreeing to the launch, and then you put human lives at risk for something as nonessential as a shuttle flight, you should be in prison.

How does anyone that isn't schizophrenic think you could upload your mind to a computer without killing your original consciousness in favor of the duplicate?
At best you'd just upload your mind, realize that your consciousness had not "magically" transferred over to the computer, and give up
The only way this transhumanist crap would work is if you replaced your brain slowly while maintaining consciousness - if consciousness is just "meta" interaction internally between parts of your brain, generating internal stimuli, having neurons that will allow you to think about something internally rather than just firing in response to external stimuli, then you could replace it with an identical computer replica and maintain your own original consciousness; its that whole ship of theseus thing that people always bring up, but consciousness is more like sailing across the ocean, its not the ship itself that really matters, its what the ship is doing

As a side note, I don't think AI is coming anywhere near as quickly as some people are saying, I think the 2050s or 60s for a good general AI

>At best you'd just upload your mind, realize that your consciousness had not "magically" transferred over to the computer, and give up
But there's also the uploaded guy and he feels like his consciousness "magically" transferred. He feels like moments ago he was inhabiting a biological body of meat. How is he wrong? He remembers everything the version who stayed in the original body remembers, has the same personality traits etc.
>but you can't be BOTH the uploaded guy and the biological guy at the same time! They don't share the same consciousness!
The two versions have to be distinguished because they overlap in time. You don't have the "same consciousness" of your past self either in any kind of strict sense, you just remember being him, and because of no temporal overlap there's no need to distinguish between you and your past self, time alone specifies who we are talking about.
Two branches of a road have to be distinguished, even though they were the same road before branching. And that doesn't mean one of the branches is really the original road and the another some kind of fake extension. Both branches are the original road, as much as any two arbitrary points before the branching were part of the same road. It's the same with persons and consciousness. It may help if you try to think that fundamentally there's no "persons", just states of experience with varying kinds and degrees of connectivity.

Do mathfags UNIRONICALLY trust the induction method to be reliable? It's like building a house on sand and expecting it to hold, it just makes no sense, there is no point in using it because you assume something is true and then extend it to everything...

n-2 cats of the same color*
>>
>>12754133
what does the numerical variable have to do with colour of cats?
>>
>>12754228
wrong, the question is could be worded better, maybe they do it this way make the flaw less obvious, but the inductive hypothesis is that any group of n-1 cats has the same color. the problem with the inductive step is then that the argument doesn't hold for n=2, because you can't show that both cats have the same color, only that each group of one cat has the same color. If it was true that every group of 2 cats were the same color, then the induction would work and you can prove that all cats are the same color.
>>
>>12757034
The statement is about a non-empty ordered list of cats and this is just induction over a list, expressed as induction over the index in the list, a natural number. Because of this, the induction step doesn't work, because the statement being proven is P(n) = "cats at indices less than or equal to n are the same color", and you want to prove P(n) implies P(n+1), which is impossible.
If the statement were about pairs of non-identical cats then it'd be as you say, that it is the base case that is insufficient.
The problem is that it mixes the two arguments.
