I hope this isn't too rude, asking you to support something you wrote
way back in ancient 1992 in a post to sci.nanotech.
- What physical process in nostalgia nature cannot be emulated in a
Turing equivalent machine such that Artificial Reality (AR) couldn't
emulate Real Reality (RR) with 365 times speedup, thus providing a
satisfactory "connection to ordinary physical reality" for uploaders?
This was one of the key stated motivations for Tinkerbelizing in the
- If c=.4 or 365 times speedup. I would have to say that most
familiar physical sensations and comforts (e.g. nostalgia nature)
would be lost (see my last post). Again, this was one of the key
stated motivations for Tinkerbelizing.
