The building blocks of the universe are, well... building blocks.
This book describes a software developer's attempt to produce an abstraction of some of the knowledge and understanding gained in the fields of neurobiology, behavior, cognition, learning, and the philosophy of mind. A variety of novel concepts and methods have emerged from the exploration, which are describe in the book. Taken together, these innovations overcome most of the obstacles encountered in designing systems capable of continuously learning and adapting within a complex milieu.

Two new patented learning methods are among the new concepts that are fully detailed in the book. One of them, dubbed multitemporal synapses, is the the result of a new theory of learning and perception. It predicts and models the human perception of a present moment in time, permitting the formation of detailed in-the-moment responses to current situations, while maintaining and preserving long-term memories.

The book also discusses, in general terms, a resulting simulation environment and software suite. The book is not, however, intended to be a manual, or companion work for the software.

Bookcover thumbnail image   The Conscious Mind: In Search of a Fundamental Theory (Philosophy of Mind Series) - David Chalmers is listed as a reference in the book. His writings, and writings he has accumulated at are listed as a source for good reading on matters of the philosophy of mind and consciousness.

Thumbnail image of paper available for download   [pdf] A Theory of Cerebellar Cortex - David Marr - Listed as a referrence in the book. Available to download free. From the abstract:
"A detailed theory of cerebellar cortex is proposed whose consequence is that the cerebellum learns to perform motor skills. Two forms of inputoutput relation are described, both consistent with the cortical theory. One is suitable for learning movements (actions), and the other for learning to maintain posture and balance (maintenance reflexes)."

“Everybody knows that the greatest discovery of the 20th century was Einstein's Theory of Relativity, and EVERYBODY is wrong.”

  • Introduces a new theory of learning that embodies, and predicts the neurobiological experience/perception of a “present moment”. Patented methods and mechanisms are included within the described simulation environment, which fully model the theory.
