Night at the Museum

Filed under: General — m759 @ 9:45 PM

The previous post suggests a review of remarks by Adam Gopnik
in The New Yorker  on February 27, 2017 on "The Matrix" hypothesis—

"The thesis that we are in a simulation is, as people who
track such things know—my own college-age son has
explained it to me—far from a joke, or a mere conceit.
The argument, actually debated at length at the
American Museum of Natural History just last year, is that
the odds are overwhelming that ours is a simulated universe.
The argument is elegant."

No, it is not. 

See as well my own remarks on the date of the above museum debate
Tuesday, April 5, 2016.

From those remarks, a Halloween 2014 image that provides a
companion-piece to the "Easy E" of today's previous post

Tools

(Night at the Museum continues.)

"Strategies for making or acquiring tools

While the creation of new tools marked the route to developing the social sciences,
the question remained: how best to acquire or produce those tools?"

— Jamie Cohen-Cole, “Instituting the Science of Mind: Intellectual Economies
and Disciplinary Exchange at Harvard’s Center for Cognitive Studies,”
British Journal for the History of Science  vol. 40, no. 4 (2007): 567-597.

Obituary of a co-founder, in 1960, of the Center for Cognitive Studies at Harvard:

"Disciplinary Exchange" —

In exchange for the free Web tools of HTML and JavaScript,
some free tools for illustrating elementary Galois geometry —

The Kaleidoscope Puzzle,  The Diamond 16 Puzzle
The 2x2x2 Cube, and The 4x4x4 Cube

"Intellectual Economies" —

In exchange for a $10 per month subscription, an excellent
"Quilt Design Tool" —

This illustrates not geometry, but rather creative capitalism.
