    Smile Re: computational linguistics

    If you think that computers might acquire "consciousness", then they would later, if not at the salme time, acquire "conscience? Can you imagine this!!!

    If you wake up one day, and you find nothing immoral in the internet, that is computers have acquired both "consciousness" and "conscious"

    Default Re: computational linguistics

    Your conscience makes you feel guilty when you do bad things, but your consciousness is your awareness. I can't wait to see a computer blush because mom admonished "it" for not freshing up its algorithms before breakfast! That'll be some conscience! (could make Freud roll over in his grave.)

    Some people never feel guilty.
    Do you think their conscience is sleeping?

    Their consciousness is at least wide awake, otherwise they wouldn't be able to not feel guily. But their "synderesis" could need an overhaul (if you ask medieval philosophers).

    synderesis - "spark of conscience" or the human drive to do good. Conscience and synderesis interpenetrate one another.
