One Process Theory Transreproductive Associatism.

One Process Theory Transreproductive Associatism.

One process theory is trans-reproductive associatism, inclusive of dual process theory, and Noam Chomsky's argument that we are genetically predisposed for language. The argument is that memory-prediction, ie statistic driven association composition, underlies reason, intuition, and language. Association then changes our genetic structure, with LTP new proteins form. In the london taxi driver his posterior hippocampus is larger. The taxi driver's new genetic structure may be passed onto to his offspring. We know how, via the principles of neuroplasticity, to increase IQ, creativity, intelligence, cause a person to have more insights, to become more integrated internally. I do it in my office, and in my business with advanced state of the art neurotechnology. http://neomindcycle.com

"One process theory: seemingly divergent aspects described as a dual process arereally one process higher up."Micah Blumberg ( Neomindcycle.com ) on One Process TheoryOne process theory does not deny dual process theory, it just unifies them witha common underlying process of network based memory-prediction. The dual processes then are strategies, Noam Chomsky might say they are genetically endowed strategies, features of the specific properties of the physical structure of our minds. This is part of the equation, genetic or actually protein based structural differences have a lot to do with why different personalities develop, and why different people are very good at different kinds of tasks. However the case for genetic predetermination is very poor, its localism, and the modern science of brain plasticity (also called neuro plasticity) has produced evidence that runs counter to the notion of fixed localist genetic endowments. We know how to increase IQ, creativity, intelligence, cause a person to have more insights, to becomemore integrated internally. I do it in my office, and in my business with advanced state of the art neurotechnology.When the brain is first forming the neurons grow synapses in a straight line, until they collide with another neuron. When we speak of a new connection, its inside the existing network of physical connections, a new physical feature betweenexisting points is what establishes that connection. Like a connection on top of existing connections.So in the Pavlovian Conditioning, associations are formed because neurons that fire together wire together, but since synapses are somewhat pre-wired, what is changing is the strength of the link between those neurons that fired in a tempo-spatial sequence.The protein that forms in the process of LTP changes the neurons whole structure, adding to its density, and its new shape changes its electrical balance, so itfires different.How Neurons form connections http://actu.epfl.ch/news/blue-brain-project-accurately-predicts-connections/More on genetic differences (thanks to Maya Parvati for sharing this first)â

"Direction selective neurons respond to some directions of movement better than others. For example, a neuron may respond to a vertical line moving leftwards but not moving rightwards. The direction selective neurons generate visual responseswith different time delays at different regions of the receptive field. Some regions respond faster to visual stimuli than others. As a consequence of these differences in response timing, a line moving from a slow to a fast region generates a stronger response than a line moving from a fast to a slow region. When theline moves in the optimal direction, the slow region, which is stimulated first,responds approximately at the same time as the fast region, which is stimulatedlater. To make an analogy, imagine that two people are trying to say â

at thesame time but one of them is speaking through a microphone that has a temporal delay of one second. The person that is using the delayed microphone has to say â

echanism of brain plasticity (associatism) which means that babies might have the genetic traits that predispose them for language, but only because their parents acquired that language via associatism aka behaviorism. This is how memory-prediction (one theory) can underly dual process theory.Take for example: Two monkey's have very different strategies, reason vs intuition, longterm vs short term, this can literally be seen as different activity intheir neurologyhttp://www.popsci.com/science/article/2012-07/scientists-read-monkeys-minds-see-what-theyre-planning-do-they-do-itHowever it might be that they developed very different strategies because they predict that strategy is best, the unifying process is that both reason and intuition are accomplished via the underlying process of prediction. so reason and intuition are just coordination patterns the organism becomes attached tohttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2029189/We-CAN-predict-future-The-brain-knows-whats-going-happen-does.htmlSee republicans have different brains from democrats apparently http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/11/121101105003.htmYou can see this concept developed in a more complex way in the earlier work ofDario Nardi, who maps 16 regions of the mind with eeg over ten months with manyparticipants to demonstrate that Carl Jungs 16 personality types are real, people with the same personality type typically use the same sequences of same regional activity in their brain to accomplish a task, while people with different personality types typically use different sequences and different regional activityin their brain to accomplish the same task.Dario's book http://www.amazon.com/Neuroscience-Personality-Brain-Insights-People/dp/0979868475Dario's talk at googlehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGfhQTbcqmANoam Chomsky argues against associatism (behaviorism), because he says a baby instantly knows how to pay attention to begin learning language, he insists otheranimals cannot begin to be interested in language from birth as a human can. Sohe claims there must be something special about the inner structure of the humanmind that makes it optimal for learning different things. As we can see in theabove examples thats very true.http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2012/11/noam-chomsky-on-where-artificial-intelligence-went-wrong/261637/Noam Chomsky thinks both Neuroscience, and AI are moving in the wrong direction,including the new direction of heirarchal grid networks modeled on the brain that create tokens of meaning from memory-predictions.Both Neuroscience and AI are using reductionist associatism to link predictionsinto tokens of meaning.Noam Chomsky argues against "Connectome" Paradigm Neurology specifically becauseno one is asking even whether looking at connections is even the right level ofabstraction.So we have shifted the focus away from intuitive understanding, toward results based engineering, the heirarchal grid creates results we do not intuitively understand, its artificial neural substrate is a reductionist model.Hear the brilliant Monica Anderson articulate the philosophical difference between the reductionist approach and the intuitive approach, both of which are approaches that can be adopted by memory-prediction brains, as illustrated in the two
 
monkey's article mentioned above.Monica Anderson: Models vs. Patternshttps://vimeo.com/5012093The reductionist throws out context to make a context free model, that is fraught with potential problems in the bizarre real world, the intuitionist is model free, meaning they have a less exacting but more flexible approach. It was the American's intuition guerrila warfare strategy against the Reductionist exacting British military method in the revolutionary war that some historians claim won the war, and American's learned this strategy from fighting Indians. War is filled with examples where we have consider the escalating risks that can derail anymilitary plan, because of unexpected real world surprises that cannot be fully predicted in a model.Yes if we are smart we make a lot of contingency plans, and we train in realistic scenarios.The point is that models are developed by disregarding context. In a holistic approach context is essential, and we add to the present context to coordinate mind and body into the achievement of a successful short term result.Connectomics, Neuroscience, and AI are making models, sometimes the model is a substrate structure to support model free learning, and unsupervised learning. For references see Monica Andersons's Artificial iNtuition, Google's Cat, Numenta's Grok, and IBM's Blue Brain.Old AI is even worse, trying to hand code a taxonomy of atomic concepts, insteadof building a relational system that allows a machine to develop (learn) its own internal representations (statistically developed tokens of meaning in spatialpatterns, ie so imagine that a neuron is a node like a vertex, and its token ofmeaning is in the vectors that link that vertex to other vertex's.The quest for the right level of abstraction to explore key questions, and the right level of context where our models are able to be related to analogy.How does association become analogy?How does analogy split into dual process 1. intuition 2. reasoningIn Category Theory we have a clean level of abstraction for relating categoriesto other categories (associations we make) and we have the ability to specify which part of a category is isomorphic to some part of another category. We can dothis with morphisms (like an arrow that illustrates an association and a direction), and by identifying elements within a category (via Monads)Category theory allows humans to get mathematically precise in terms of modelingprecise associations, isomorphisms, symmetries, asymmetries, invariant similarities between different things, this is another tool for creating models, albietmodels that have increased flexibility, with less errors than object oriented programming.Category Theory, and functional programming allows us to relate contexts with models, and models with contexts, so now we can create the kind of artificial neural substrate (the genetic predisposition) where results activate or deactivate associations in the code, just like associations forming and unforming in a brain.On the flip side, we want Composition (association) to be in the hands of the AI(via the substrate) so we are not hand coding the whole taxonomy of internal as
