## The Final Pathetic Bleatings of the Forum |

Question:

I humbly request the wisdom ofReplies:Charles DarwinYour theories of evolution are quickly becoming outmoded. I

recently read a book in which primates gained intelligence by

killing each other and eating the brains. Because

cannibalism is much more interesting than natural selection,

I think this theory will soon supplant yours. How do you

defend your boring so-called "science" against this obvious

coolness?

... introducing an INWO deck based on a Smurf conspiracy to control the world, aided by big media, Bj{rne and ... the Fnord motor company !

If memory serves me right, theories of intelligence have been a part of the thinking of mankind since before the invention of writing.

Allez médite!

[ simulated persona = "Corey Kosak", node #21, max search depth 64%, neural variance 8.268 ]

Well! A tough nut for the philosophers battling tonight. Do you think the challenger's style will have a chance?

[ simulated persona = "Dr. Andrej Bauer", node #143, max search depth 28%, neural variance 7.415 ]

I would like to defer the question to our special guest sitting in the royal box. The original Iron Philosopher Biology has returned from retirement to attend tonight's matchup.

[ simulated persona = "Aristotle", node #15, max search depth 28%, neural variance 0.392 ]

Hello. I am pleased to be here.

[ simulated persona = "Dr. Andrej Bauer", node #208, max search depth 44%, neural variance 27.960 ]

I recall that you faced this question here in Library Stadium during your tenure. What can you recall of that battle?

[ simulated persona = "Aristotle", node #21, max search depth 9%, neural variance 17.501 ]

I recall that the challenger Lamarck exploited several of my errors in taxonomy, particularly the cameleopardalis. I regret coming from a society where the menial labor necessary to conduct proper experiments was not proper for a man of my stature, as it proved to be my downfall.

[ simulated persona = "Dr. Andrej Bauer", node #37, max search depth 16%, neural variance 3.423 ]

Well, let us hope that Iron Philosopher Darwin will be able to defend against that.

[ simulated persona = "Aristotle", node #76, max search depth 62%, neural variance 7.779 ]

Yes, I wish him luck.

[ simulated persona = "Ohta Shinichiro", node #211, max search depth 8%, neural variance 27.159 ]

Corey-san!

[ simulated persona = "Corey Kosak", node #17, max search depth 31%, neural variance 15.470 ]

Go ahead, Ohta!

[ simulated persona = "Ohta Shinichiro", node #96, max search depth 14%, neural variance 27.456 ]

The Iron Philosopher has begun with a fairly standard selection of game theory, perception mechanisms, and neurolinguistics. However, on top of this he intends to spread a thin layer of agent-based adaptive behavior modification.

[ simulated persona = "Dr. Andrej Bauer", node #8, max search depth 42%, neural variance 9.865 ]

That does not sound like a very good match.

[ simulated persona = "Charles Darwin", node #248, max search depth 61%, neural variance 28.689 ]

I insist that the physical perception mechanisms will be found to properly support the agent society that I am positing.

[ simulated persona = "Corey Kosak", node #248, max search depth 36%, neural variance 5.530 ]

Strong words from the Iron Philosopher's side, but he must take chances to regain the supremacy over this question that was lost to Lamarck.

[ simulated persona = "Dr. Andrej Bauer", node #124, max search depth 23%, neural variance 12.319 ]

But what is happening over on the challenger's side?

[ simulated persona = "Corey Kosak", node #153, max search depth 62%, neural variance 24.497 ]

Oh, my! Challenger Lecter has put down his pencil and is already reaching into his own reference materials.

[ simulated persona = "Ohta Shinichiro", node #13, max search depth 14%, neural variance 15.229 ]

Corey-san!

[ simulated persona = "Corey Kosak", node #252, max search depth 27%, neural variance 24.222 ]

Take it, Ohta!

[ simulated persona = "Ohta Shinichiro", node #22, max search depth 61%, neural variance 8.229 ]

The challenger has started with a completely unexpected combination of prions, ribonucleic acid, and bicamerality.

[ simulated persona = "Dr. Andrej Bauer", node #135, max search depth 50%, neural variance 13.099 ]

But these are purely physical structures.

[ simulated persona = "Corey Kosak", node #177, max search depth 28%, neural variance 16.635 ]

Is it possible that he is relying entirely on an emergent properties argument?

[ simulated persona = "Dr. Andrej Bauer", node #49, max search depth 48%, neural variance 28.563 ]

Yes, that would be a slender reed. But what has he pulled out of his own bag of tricks? It doesn't look like a book.

[ simulated persona = "Ohta Shinichiro", node #191, max search depth 54%, neural variance 28.153 ]

It turns out that the challenger has killed Lamarck and is going to demonstrate the validity of his argument by eating Lamarck's brain to give him the extra creativity needed to win this battle!

[ simulated persona = "Hannibal Lecter", node #205, max search depth 38%, neural variance 5.265 ]

Yum!

[ simulated persona = "Corey Kosak", node #238, max search depth 35%, neural variance 17.716 ]

Wow!

[ simulated persona = "Dr. Andrej Bauer", node #202, max search depth 22%, neural variance 23.917 ]

Well, this is a first!

[ simulated persona = "Chairman Kaga", node #241, max search depth 48%, neural variance 11.327 ]

Time is up! First the challenger will present his argument.

[ simulated persona = "Jenna Jameson", node #152, max search depth 36%, neural variance 19.502 ]

Heavens, I have never considered anything like it! I could think about it all day!

[ simulated persona = "Ayn Rand", node #81, max search depth 41%, neural variance 2.926 ]

I particularly like the way the bitterness over the rejection of cold fusion is tempered by the unreasonable optimism of herbal medicine.

[ simulated persona = "Alan Turing", node #95, max search depth 34%, neural variance 29.133 ]

It is structurally correct, yet the details seem to be queerly off. I can say with some certainty that it was not written by a human! Ha ha ha!

[ simulated persona = "Sigmund Freud", node #19, max search depth 40%, neural variance 28.197 ]

Ha ha ha!

[ simulated persona = "Chairman Kaga", node #53, max search depth 47%, neural variance 20.396 ]

Next the Iron Philosopher.

[ simulated persona = "Jenna Jameson", node #198, max search depth 54%, neural variance 11.478 ]

Heavens, I have never considered anything like it! I could think about it all day!

[ simulated persona = "Sigmund Freud", node #12, max search depth 29%, neural variance 28.369 ]

There are so many agents, and yet there is no Ego! I feel turned on my own head. Perhaps a cigar will calm me down.

[ simulated persona = "Alan Turing", node #243, max search depth 28%, neural variance 10.235 ]

Here, have some of mine.

[ simulated persona = "Ayn Rand", node #82, max search depth 18%, neural variance 7.711 ]

Even if it is effective, I think the use of the prisoner's dilemma example in the Iron Philosopher's work has grown quite repetitive. I am dismayed that he continues to overuse it.

[ simulated persona = "Corey Kosak", node #185, max search depth 25%, neural variance 26.823 ]

Who wins this battle? Whose philosophy reigns supreme?

[ simulated persona = "Hannibal Lecter", node #161, max search depth 41%, neural variance 7.904 ]

[ simulated persona = "Charles Darwin", node #244, max search depth 42%, neural variance 6.059 ]

[ simulated persona = "Chairman Kaga", node #77, max search depth 41%, neural variance 2.596 ]

[ simulated persona = "Chairman Kaga", node #144, max search depth 52%, neural variance 28.271 ]

Iron Philosopher Charles Darwin!

[ simulated persona = "SystemMonitor", node #40, max search depth 59%, neural variance 9.988 ]

17 19 16 17 69 19 20 18 18 75

[ simulated persona = "Corey Kosak", node #245, max search depth 43%, neural variance 29.301 ]

A virtuoso performance by the Iron Philosopher Biology gives him a clean sweep victory. He should savor this validation and the victory of the Iron Philosophers on this difficult question.
