    Dear Members, this is about us and humanity and about how we can be truly useful together and to society as a whole. It is about how to escape our confusion about computation as a discipline of understanding rather than alienation from big tech and their claim on Artificial Intelligence achievements based on LH-DYNAMICS not understanding what it is all about. By understanding the difference between the two hemispheres we will be able to grasp why substituting transformer technology and GPUs for RH real intelligence, will not work. As well as understanding why LH-produced writing picked up all over the internet may not be the means of context-based intelligent understanding.

    With more than fifty years’ experience in dynamic nonlinear deterministic computation behind us, would this not be important, as a members’ regular McGilchrist Zoom activity?

    😎 Graph theory is a mathematical discipline of art and meaning, Reality.

    Where the LH use of language is narrative, stories about what we’re doing, and the chat programs are good at predicting what might be said next based on statistics of what’s been said before in responses to similar prompts or questions, the RH use of language is poetry, more explicit use of the metaphors which anchor the meaning of all language.

    The Matter with Things gives us a grand story in the first volume, and some resonant poetry in the second. Yet after the thesis and antithesis there’s not yet a third volume, a synthesis. If we’re going to survive the onslaught of computer-generated narratives now, more poetics is called for — but also some yet unaccomplished synthesis, where the two hemispheres, the two hands, craft futures worthy of our their capacities at their best.

    How, then, may we go forward both to enhance poetics, and bring our two sides into a transcendent embrace?

      Dear Whit, thank you for responding.

      Sorry if I didn’t express myself well enough.

      It was not another invitation to air Iain’s or our opinions about the hemisphere differences.

      It is an invitation to learn enough about computation necessary to grasp the difference between the two thought systems.

      Motivation is to defuse misperceptions about computation in general.

      The question is would anyone be interested in such a learning together exercise on Zoom?
