Born to do Math 64 – IC Narratives

Born to do Math 64 – IC Narratives
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
June 8, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: One thing from IC are narratives or stories that describes things relevant to your informational framework.

Rick Rosner: That may just be a general idea from philosophy. If you want to explain something, then you want to explain something that is most appropriate to the context, where people expect that all of biology and all of chemistry will eventually be able to be boiled down or eventually built up from physics.

That includes that we as natural humans do. So, physics would not only include the hard sciences but the soft sciences like psychology. You can run this back to how atoms behave. That kind of idea that everything would boil down to physics probably inspires some people to be fearful that biology and chemistry would go away.

That probably wouldn’t be the case. You mentioned – off-tape – a universe of discourse, which probably means everything gets its own context.
