> Incorrect thinking? Good one Mr Orwell!

Thanks for the compliment, but I'm no George Orwell. Oh, excuse me, you
actually intended a lame ad hominem. Instead of addressing the issue itself,
you intend to dismiss it by (wrongly) depicting me as somehow related to an
Orwellian fantasy. Nice try, but a failure nonetheless. "Incorrect thinking"
simply means thinking that fails to solve problems or accurately answer
questions. IOW, ignorance... such as your comment entails.

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego, human values, scientific relinquishment, malevolent AI,
non-sensory experience, SETI

We move into a better future in proportion as science displaces superstition.
