    IIIIITHE1IIIII said: Plaupius said: I understand your argument, and I think it is the case of changed definition. So, please, define free will again as you understand it now. And, just for clarity, I'm not arguing that free will exists or does not exist, as that is totally irrelevant. If you want to prove the free will does not exist, then you have to define it in such a way that...

    IIIIITHE1IIIII said: Plaupius said: IIIIITHE1IIIII said: I would say "no". The fact that there even is a system means that the free will isn't free but is directly dependent on that (unimaginably complex) system. So, in a way, I guess that the free will has just as much evidence, to support its existence, as God and the flying spaghetti monster, as I see it. Ok,...

A "definite maybe" doesn't sound very convincing :-D Anyway, as I see it the brain is fully capable of making decisions even without any input from the "outside", as a decision really isn't anything else than millions of synapses colliding (both consciously and uncounsciously). But it really only leads us to...

    in General Discussion on 26 April 2012

    If you want to argue for determinism, then you can not shrug off quantum effects. While it is tempting to think that the universe acts in a predetermined fashion, that is simply not the case. For determinism to work, the whole universe needs to be deterministic, down to the smallest particle. Yet we know for a fact that quantum effects can have profound implications on the macro level, otherwise...

    Nintendo is setting its sights on Apple

    in Nintendo Discussion on 11 May 2010

    puffy said:If the quote was real, Iwata acknowledging that Apple were a possible "enemy of the future" basically means that he sees the possibility for Apple to disrupt Nintendo's handheld business in the future if Apple continue to increase their focus on games. As has been said earlier in the thread, the iPod Touch could very well become "good enough" in terms of the games it offers and...

    Is Apple becoming the Microsoft of mobile? (WIRED article)

    in Sales Discussion on 07 May 2010

    I don't see the ban of using other development languages than C, C++ and Objective-C (and JavaScript) as a move worthy of monopolistic accusations. However, the ban of third party analytics is a different matter and that could well lead into federal action, IMO. Then again, the most recent statistics from AdMob show that Android devices generate more ad requests so it might be hard to argue that...

    This is great, the original Master of Orion is perhaps the best space strategy game ever, although MOO 2 is not that bad either. Master of Magic is great as well but somehow I like the space setting more.Now I'd just need a Windows machine......

They will completely change the publishing/distribution of games, and the change is already happening and visible.
