Default Ex Machina: thought experiment

so, I'm watching ex machina

to make a person, and or beat the Turing test


feel free to contribute when you wake up

funny stuff is appreciated but i would like some real admissions about how we orientate ourselves

anyone doing uni work in this is free to steal

make sure you ask for permission

to get the ball rolling

what are my first thoughts today?

where am I?
who am I?
what consequences involve where and who I am?
Who else know who and where I am?
what immediate responsibilities do i have (this includes safety)

have I missed a step???

Default Re: Ex Machina: thought experiment

so...

there was some pretty spirited discussion amongst us regarding me
prepositioning "where am I?" before "who am I?"

I'm sure however that i'm right simply because we have an innate sense of self and evaluation comes only after realizing time and place

Generally my first thought in the morning is how much more sleep can I feasibly squeeze in before work.

Who am I? The sum of my parts. Stardust and shit. Generally at least 1% shit but usually more. Fair bit of tripe and bile in there too. Far more microbes than I'm comfortable contemplating.

Default Re: Ex Machina: thought experiment

In my work, I often find myself in the position of trying to relate to people either emerging from being drugged/unresponsive, or having a time of lucid thought in a sea of dementia. Their first questions are often, "Where am I?" and "Who are you?" Invariably one of my first questions is "How do you feel?"

Does that inform your experiment?
