Mindfulness or Mindlessness?
RE: Mindfulness or Mindlessness?
AST is a machine theory. I'm curious, what mind-body problem do you think a machine has?
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Hi, I'm back and all caught up.  I got caught up with other stuff.

Here's the answer to the poll:
One person has it right so far.  Well done @Jackalope

Although I'll accept the last answer too because I sneakily didn't define terms.  

Thanks to @The Grand Nudger for the ... erm... nudge, because I think I need to add a couple of slides to my powerpoint based on post #80, so I'll probably disappear for while why I work on that.

And thanks too to @HappySkeptic for the term 're-entrant'.  I think that's a bit more digestible than 'feed-back loops'.

The MEANING of life is the experience of living ... (from Frank Herbert)
The VALUE of life is the legacy we leave behind ..... (from observation)
