Can language be bypassed in computation?
By Colt Carty (A facebook friend)
How to bypass the necessity for language in computation? The need for characters, for symbols. Reducing the question as much as possible, if you consider the connectome of the human mind even the individual electrical signals between the neurons can be represented as individual values, so in my mind it is impossible to escape math and math itself is a language. How can you organize information without language? How do you form patterns without "sentence structure" and symbolic context? What possible path forward is there to achieve communication and computation without the use of a language? A friend suggested "so you are trying to reduce the world entirely to binary?" But even that is meaningless because binary is a language. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated.
A world of binary also removes the possibility for emotion and emotion is essential for any emulation of intuition. How to have awareness of emotion without language? How to organize information without language.. how to bypass a system that is the foundation for information to be represented? How to represent without a representation of the information you are trying to represent? Homework help?
Can emotion be considered a representation of ascribed value and significance hierarchy? If so can we then consider intuition to be basically a statistical prediction function factoring value and significance hierarchy inside of the mind to predict a future outcome? The concept of a "hyper computable entity" is a false premise because any conception a human mind is able to reach is itself computable, but this conception is itself a calculation so then is the result of a processed language. How can we calculate without numbers?
