1 - 2 weeks availability
This monograph reports a thought experiment with a mathematical structure intended to illustrate the workings of a mind. It presents a mathematical theory of human thought based on pattern theory with a graph-based approach to thinking. The method illustrated and produced by extensive computer simulations is related to neural networks. Based mainly on introspection, it is speculative rather than empirical such that it differs radically in attitude from the conventional wisdom of current cognitive science.
Short Introduction to Pattern Theory; Purpose of Book; Criterion for Judging the Model; Thoughts in Goethe; Idea of Personality; Thought Dynamics; Calculus of Thinking; Building a GOLEM; Software Architecture; Application to Legacy; Development of GOLEM; Multi-Level Networks; Conclusions; Looking Forward.
