I have taken three courses in philosophy in college, and I recently listened to some lectures on philosophy of the mind.
I found that much of what philosophers have said in the past is equivalent to the musings of an adolescent. I don't have a clear philosophy, but whatever it is, people don't want to hear about it. Essentially, I think that we are all in an accidental universe that is going to do some pretty uncontrollable things.
Consciousness and the courage to live with no purpose.
I have a B.S. in psychology and an M.S. in computer science. I am interested in the nature of consciousness and the possibility that machines may become conscious.
Doing good. Hope to see more people at the next event.
