Coding Again

Icon 2 Comments
Ok, I can now code for about 4 hours per day now. It's not the 12 hours per day that I want but it will do. Hopefully in about 3 or 4 weeks I'll be able to code for 12 hours per day. Also, let me just preempt the obvious question: if you like coding so much why don't you just give up philosophy and become a coder? Also, in my last post someone asked me how much do I love philosophy in comparison to coding. Well, I love coding philosophy, let's put it that way. If I had to code something unrelated to philosophy I wouldn't like it. Similarly, to me, writing philosophy down in the normal way is like riding a bike that is not put together. It's so obvious that doing philosophy the way it's always been done just doesn't work. Philosophers generally agree that the only progress that has been made is that we know what arguments do not work to say nothing of what arguments actually do work. So to answer the question, I like coding and philosophy equally. You can't do one without the other. It's like doing physics without experiment in my opinion. I code to check the all of my beliefs are consistent but of course I have a long way to go before my error checker actually works the way I want it.

How does that figure? Are you just doing math proofs?

The short answer is so long as a statement is necessary then it can be calculated. So 2+2 equals 4 is always true in every situation no matter what the circumstances. There are a few details that complicate things but by and large that is true. Similarly, a cat is a mammal is also always true no matter what the situation. The same can be applied for what knowledge is. Knowledge is always knowledge no matter the situation is. Once you assert that knowledge is always x, or truth is always x, then you can start to calculate things.
