A Talk, led by Yasi Perera and Ezra Buchla.

We will be discussing and demonstrating aspects of transmission, noesis and resonance between “intelligent” beings, evading categorical perception while approaching the domains of PSI and CETI.

“I’m going to try to make a black hole, and if you’ve ever loved someone you’ll want to hold their hand.” Not in a scary way, but I just really wanted to get down to the real huge distances between us all (intelligences), to open a huge space, and then talk about trying to make contact in that.”

Plotting out each element’s weights in a learning/self-organizing/adaptive array. The¬†arrays have been trained on info with higher dimensions of variation than the array’s dimensionality, so they struggle to “represent” the information somewhere… the 1-d array (the points are connected to show their topological relation in the adaptive network), you can see if spreadign out in a space-filling curve-type shape.. if you plot it in 3d you get something like a 3d spacefilling curve.. not rigorously defined, just an emergent version.. an interesting aside is that as the learning progresses the curve seems to follow the iterations of a iteratively defined spacefiller like peano or whoever.. 2d array get there’s “deviation stripes” the deviation from a regular grid is plotted in the z axis. The¬†striping formation is characteristic of biological 2d arrays of neurons which are trying to deal with higher-d input.
