> New forums for the "Computer Science & Coding" subforum, I think there needs to be something about more theoretical ideas.

"Theoretical Computer Science" or "Computational Complexity Theory." I mean, we have subforums for certain programming languages, which is relevant to brainmeta because of their connection to AI, which is an interesting topic akin to the brain.

But a more theoretical forum could make conjectures/hypotheses or theories about the limitations and bounding nature of computation and therefore make connections to AI.

(For example, one could lead a discussion of Turing machines and the Halting problem into that of how we behave as biological equivalents of machines to a degree, or something like that)

Also, do we have a forum for things about logic/reasoning itself? I'm kind of new here.

hi HiddenVariable and welcome. Having a "Theoretical Computer Science" board is certainly a possibility, and will be created if enough interest is shown in the board. In the interim, maybe consider posting at the Computer Science forum at

Welcome HV. I'd like to get your opinion on James Anderson's paper on his Perspex Machine:

Particularly concerning the validity of the claim that the perspex machine is a supra-turing machine that can enable robot consciousness and free will.
