I question the "inner robot" premise. I believe that some of the articles have suggested that while it takes the mind half a second to process the incoming data, the mind is not waiting around to interpret and respond, but is in fact “predicting” based upon what came in a half second ago and stored information about what is likely to happen within the next half second. If you’re mind is synthesizing a response based upon a prediction then it is simultaneous with regard to the perceived moment even if the prediction is flawed. And it seems that there are few occurrences which could take place within that half second which would dramatically change the prediction. If so, there is no need for an “inner robot.”
Gallagher's burger. You have to try it as well.
Ditto what Nico said.
Excellent article! Long overdue and much needed.
And by the way, I wrote this piece last June!
This thread is surreal!
Well that's a little more hopeful than I thought. In looking at Eureka elections in the past, late absentee ballots tend to be less conservative than earlier - in fact, they tend to be almost identical to the same day voting patterns - which would be good for Kim! Still, 104 votes is a lot to make up with less than a thousand votes and plenty of chances of statistical outliers.
