comment When can we say machines are conscious?
its all clever programming at this point with a CPU and memory. Perhaps if the machine is made completely out of a living plant or from the brain of a human (who past away)?

comment Body Language: Why do we give each other the grumpy/frowning fake smile?
@olli: Yes, I do it also, and then I say to myself "where did I pick this up from" ?! I started doing it when I entered "adulthood" after college when working in the corporate world. I think I just picked it up from others around me. Maybe it reflects all the stress of the modern days professional man in a complicated contradictory world?

comment How does cognitive science explain distant intentionality and brain function in recipients?
@nick-stauner: even if the probability is some very small number, can we be sure something like this does not exist in all of humanity?

comment What makes people easily subscribe to pseudoscientific theories?
@forbidden-overseer: some do help and work for people and there are gaps in science. There is an element of art to life that has real outcomes and can not always be organized in thought.
