    Philosophycels BTFO. How does it feel to know that philosophy is so trivial it can be automated by an LLM, a statistical model that literally only repeats word salad? This will never happen to STEM.

      It will happen to STEM before philosophy in a way worthwhile. Any philosophy it can spew is probably like the Zizek and Herzog AI’s talking to each other. Most people will think it’s profound, but it’s just bullshit that sounds nice. Just because STEM will get taken over first doesn’t mean philosophy won’t for a while. It will likely quickly follow its demise.

    It's crazy to me that people think a simulacra of men is on par with the men themselves. A computer can have 99% of a man's likeness, but the 1% that will be missing is the key ingredient. People are so silly to me sometimes. What a ridiculous thing to say.

    lmao what's the "revolution" - that one doesn't have to read and think about difficult books but can ask """Plato""" to quickly summarize his views? Yeah I'm sure that will increase the mental prowess of the coming generations, just like 15-min video essays and wikipedia summaries did. Maybe Plato can make informative tiktoks, expressing his philosophy by dance moves with a deepfake body.

    It's kind of endearing that anons think AI is the same as raising someone from the dead.
    I'd have a local model running for every single philosopher I'm currently reading, taught only on its text, primary and secondary sources about their life, and importantly, texts that philosopher read in his life.
    So for example, instead of reading 30 prerequisite books, I could theoretically just have it explain to me how a certain chapter relates to another book, what a certain concept is. And it could do amazing things, such as, if a concept was understood differently in another age, it would use that explanation, not the modern one.

          Clearly, you’re not a STEMbug because every STEMbug believes that a predictive model with enough iterations will get it “right” consistently eventually. STEMbugs are midwits almost by definition as well. To be a STEMbug not trained in mathematics, logic, and philosophy is almost the definition of “majoring in the minors” and scientism is a rampant problem among them.

    I tried Socrates, asking specifically for conversation in the Socratic method. It was much fun, and didn't really matter what I asked, because the point is to guide me to further thinking without personal feelings or agenda. This can be profoundly refreshing.
