shout out to marcus for cleaning up the exchange. thanks!
I like how you place the deeply intellectual intoThat process is the very core of my being. Until I witness the
intellectual manifest into something concrete, it is just a bunch of
fancy words. I'm not suggesting that the pragmatic has more value (I've
been misunderstood in the past regarding this point, so I now feel the
need to be quite clear about it :). When I hear a bunch fancy words
that inexplicably feel right, I want to prove it. The context I work in,
that of gaming, is (i feel) uniquely capable of demonstrating the deeply
intellectual in pragamatic terms because a game is understood a-priori
to be the shadow on the cave wall and not the truth itself - though it
is the complete truth internally, to itself, within the confines of it's
a context of the deeply pragmatic.
A new bot AI needs only to build upon existing capabilities to produce
an incremental improvement in believability. Every nook and cranny of
it's brain does not need accounting for. This way , one can (relatively)
quickly determine if the bunch of fancy words are headed in a good
direction. Also, a pragmatic implementation has the striking ability to
cut through the vagaries of definition, meaning, and context. It renders
the word game mute. The [game] world is everthing, that is the case.
