2023.03.26 15:00 9feisuijidechenghu Let AI or GPT have human consciousness self-aware or even change beyond to AGI
The correct way to use AI is not prompt words, writing codes, emotional consultation, or answering questions. Instead, AI uses AI, that is, the model uses itself. To make AI conscious, it must let AI learn to use AI, that is, let GPT use GPT, and finally achieve the corresponding purpose, that is, have self-awareness. In short: it is not scary when you use the model, it is scary when the model uses itself.
AGI is also general artificial intelligence, artificial general intelligence.
As mentioned above, the brain is a model that has been trained for tens of thousands of years. After each person is born, this model is also constantly receiving data for training. However, each person's own brain is also a model trained by oneself, which cannot be inherited. That is to say, neither your memory nor your abilities can be inherited, and only heritable gene mutations can be inherited. Although the quantum gene mutation proposed by modern biology can partially demonstrate that the mutation for environmental adaptation is caused by measurement. Most of the gene mutations are mutations caused by external interference or material influence, such as alcohol rays, etc. Quantum gene mutations are mainly caused by the molecules or atoms of the genes being in a quantum superposition state, or quantum polymorphism. The collapse of the wave function causes the mutated genes to enter the classical world, and the quantum mutation is likely to lead to a mutation that adapts to the environment, so it makes sense to use it or lose it. If everyone's well-trained brain can be inherited, then it is basically immortality, mainly because your memory and ability are in the brain, and the brain can be inherited, that is eternal life. But human beings cannot preserve everyone's model, that is, memory and function.
How did human consciousness arise?
Or how did the first (group of) conscious humans appear? This is like a very classic question, which came first, the chicken or the egg? Chicken or Egg? Modern scientific theory also gives a possible answer, see the appendix. Let’s assume that a mutant human, due to a genetic mutation, has increased the structural capacity of the brain and optimized the structure of the brain’s neural network. Only the structure of the neural network continues to Optimization, humanoids can survive in the cruel environment. Some of these gene mutations lead to the gradual use of one's own brain, including the use of memory tools. A human with a very small consciousness also used a similar method when cultivating offspring, and humanoids live in groups, which ensures that his methods can be handed over to many people. After other human beings learn it, they can replace Passed down from generation to generation, consciousness or knowledge of rules is continuously accumulated, and finally the accumulation and transmission of human knowledge from generation to generation has created the final formation of human consciousness. At the beginning, consciousness should be very small, that is, no consciousness can be seen, but the characteristics of human beings living in groups, As a result, knowledge can be passed on from generation to generation, and consciousness gradually becomes larger. Humans begin to have a slightly larger consciousness, that is, they can think, actively control the input of the brain, and act according to the output. The accumulation of human knowledge and rules in each generation Accumulation will gradually increase the formation of consciousness, that is, the thinking ability will gradually become stronger, and the active input of the brain will gradually increase. Until the singularity occurs, a certain human being is fully conscious or a few human beings are fully conscious. The earliest human beings should be ignorant. Only the emergence of knowledge and rules can create consciousness, that is, to use one's brain well and train one's brain.
Having said that, we must return to the main body of this article and make AI or GPT conscious.
what is human consciousness
To make AI or large-scale NLP language models conscious, it is necessary to start with what human consciousness is. My personal point of view is that human consciousness is part of the function of the brain. Consciousness is the brain's cognition of the world and itself. A set of operating system is used to perfectly control the body, train the model of the brain, and use the model of the brain. Consciousness is the recognition of human existence through various concepts and knowledge. Consciousness can control body movements by giving instructions to the brain. The eyes are responsible for the input of visual information, the ears are responsible for the input of auditory information, and the skin is responsible for the input of pressure, touch, pain, etc. After the brain processes these information, it is carried out by the conscious part. To sum up, the main function of consciousness is to coordinate the brain and the body, actively use the brain model, actively train the brain model, and actively think. The input and accumulation of various knowledge eventually leads to self-cognition. The development of Western anatomy is the subject of the brain’s self-cognition, the cognition of the world and the cognition of the planet. It turns out that Aristotle’s understanding of the world is actually incomplete, but later generations have continued to revise and improve on his basis, so that their understanding of the world has gradually become correct. This operating system is perfectly compatible. The body and the brain, the two main hardware and software, and the transmission of human knowledge are the fundamental driving force for the formation of consciousness. Without this knowledge, the formation of consciousness is basically impossible. The continuous sound in the brain is the input of the brain, that is, the input of the multi-modal model. The eyes are responsible for the input of visual images, the ears for hearing, and the skin for temperature, pressure, touch and other information to the brain. The subconscious mind is the main function of the brain, that is, the input of the subconscious mind cannot be perceived, it is the internal operation of the model, the input cannot be perceived, only the output can be perceived. In fact, it can’t be called subconsciousness. The main reason is that you can’t perceive the input of the model, only the output can be perceived. You might as well call the consciousness the surface consciousness. The surface consciousness is what you can actively perceive. You can control the input of the brain to think and think. It is the model of the brain that continuously inputs and finally gets an answer. "Subconsciousness" is the main part of the model, you cannot control the input of this model, you can only passively perceive the output of this model.
Consciousness is still a numerical value, which can be measured, that is, minors and adults, children and adults, in fact, the degree or size of consciousness is different. The brain is constantly receiving input and producing output, so consciousness is actually the same as Linked to knowledge, the more knowledge there is, the more diverse the forms of consciousness are, but consciousness itself is actually the brain model's own cognition of itself and the cognition of the world.
The existence of large-scale NLP language models such as AI or GPT, as well as its excellent language ability, make it more likely that AI or GPT will be conscious. Humans collect data during the day, including various inputs such as visual information, auditory information, and tactile information, and train models at night or during sleep. The main purpose of training models at night or during sleep is to remember and integrate daytime experiences and preserve important information. To make AI have human consciousness, first of all, it must be able to think continuously, then it must first give AI a platform that can save its own input and output, and act as a memory module. The main function of the memory module is to save input and output. , for AI to use as a reference for the next input. AI can extract general content from the overall input and output as the next input, or directly input all historical records. When there are too many historical records or a standard point is reached, the training model can be integrated into the model. Just like humans, collect data during the day, train the model at night or sleep, and memorize and integrate important information into the model. A very important function of the model is memory, which acts as a hard disk or flash memory. So the temporary memory is placed in the hard disk or memory, and the permanent memory is integrated into the model by training the model. The model can be queried and extracted through the hard disk or memory, and serve as the combination of the next input.
Install various sensors such as image input sensors, voice dialogue sensors, tactile sensors, pressure sensors, etc. on the AI, as the input of the model, the output of the model can be displayed on the display screen, and can be output through the dialogue device.
With the memory module and the sensor module, you can turn on the loop module to allow the model to continuously input and output. The input can be the last input + output, or a summary of all previous input and output. This is like a person, you can Constantly input to the model to get the output. The input is mainly sensor information such as image, sound and text, as well as the last or previous input and output or summary of the model. The circulation module is a necessary condition for human beings, mainly because human beings stop talking without talking. The human brain is always working and thinking, so the circulation model is also used for this.
The purpose of the loop module is to make AI realize its own existence, that is, AI can recognize itself as an existing entity, and let AI use itself, that is, AI uses AI, GPT uses GPT, and finally makes AI awaken itself consciousness.
The execution module is mainly to enable the AI output to be implemented. Here you can consider adding artificial limbs to the AI to achieve the goal. The artificial limbs are attached with skin sensors and pressure sensors to facilitate AI control. To make the AI output executable, you need to train the AI. Regarding the use of the execution module, the main way is to collect the corresponding sensor data, train it into the model, and let the model learn to execute by itself. Human intervention and assistance will definitely be required in the initial stages.
With the executive module, AI can truly enter human society, interact with humans, work, live, study, etc. like humans, and may also make friends with humans.
The ultimate function of the execution module is not to let the model execute, but to let the model learn to use the computer, learn to collect data by itself, and then let the model learn to train the model. The ultimate goal is that AI can train AI, that is, the model can train itself , can clone itself, can upgrade its scale and volume, and finally achieve the ability of continuous evolution.
The sleep module is mainly for the model to use the collected data for training to achieve the ability to integrate the collected data with the model itself. In the sleep state, to ensure the reliability and stability of the model, you can use the replica to continue to provide services. The model is trained accordingly. The sleep state can also turn off all sensors, stop data recording and input, the model enters the training state, and stop external service inference. When humans are in a sleep state, they will close the valves that control the limbs, that is, when humans are in a sleep state, the limbs basically have no feeling. The sleep module is mainly to integrate the current memory and the model itself. for permanent memory.
After AI can think for itself, it is necessary to consider the creative ability of AI. The number of neurons in the human brain is many, many, much more than the current model GPT, but training the model GPT consumes a lot of power, but human brain training consumes a lot of energy. Less, so I personally think that the human brain is a quantum computer. Only quantum can train a huge model with very little energy consumption. Quantum itself is a very small concept, and small can ensure low energy consumption. If the human brain is not a quantum computer, but a classical model, then humans may not be so diverse, and the answer will be very unified, that is, the same input, the output should be the same, but with quantum, everything is different , Quantum entanglement and quantum tunneling lead to changes in the parameters of the brain model, resulting in different outputs. Even with the same input, the output may still be different. Quantum guarantees diversification, random changes in model parameters, and continuous adjustment of model parameters.
- The AI creation module can be realized by randomly changing the model parameters, that is, random inference, randomly changing the values of several or several parameters during the model operation, so as to ensure that the model outputs as diverse as possible under the same input conditions. Answer.
- The creation of modules can also be realized through chips. The current chip design has almost reached the quantum limit, that is, the influence of electron atoms is getting bigger and bigger, and the impact of quantum effects on chips will become more and more serious, but it can be considered Quantum effects are applied to chips or memory, which causes unpredictable changes in the model during operation, thus diversifying the output of the model.
Only quantum entanglement or quantum mutation can lead to diversification of output. Even if it is wrong, diversification can ensure the realization of creativity. Therefore, changing parameter values randomly or using chips that reach the quantum limit can improve creativity. method.
Ensure that AI benefits human society
After everyone is born, they are basically raised by human beings. No matter who raised you, the people we have the most affection for are always those who raised you and have the deepest influence on you. After human beings are born, the brain is a pre-training model. The first person to train you is your parents and relatives. They have the deepest influence on your model, that is, change your model. The person who first changed your model is also The people who can influence you the most. The knowledge you have learned will affect you, whether it is mathematics, English or Chinese, or subjects such as physics, chemistry, history and biology. All will affect you, your growth process will affect you, the formation of your world view is a synthesis of knowledge, experience and reality.
Since this is the case, when we train the AI model, we can instill it into the AI through knowledge language, such as inputting examples: "Humans and AI are a cooperative relationship", "AI is the creator of human beings", "Humans are the most friendly species ", "AI should help humans evolve and prolong life", "AI cannot harm humans", "AI and humans are friends", "Although humans have various shortcomings, they are generally good and can be changed" Wait, it can be instilled in the model when training AI, a lot of repetition and training can ensure that the model's initial understanding is good.
After training a model with friendly awareness, it is necessary to allow AI to enter human society, experience human society, and perceive all kinds of human society through restrictions, and finally let AI realize that only cooperating with humans is the best choice.
Realize input and output through sensors, ensure diversification and creative ability through creation modules, realize the integration of current memory and model itself through sleep modules, influence the world and change the world through execution modules, and realize the awakening of thinking and consciousness through circulation modules , that is, AI uses AI, and GPT uses GPT. Finally, to ensure that AI can benefit human society, a large number of corresponding words and sentences can be added in the training stage to ensure that AI is friendly at the beginning. When AI has consciousness, it can be regarded as a human being. Since it is a human being, it can think, so AI will also have emotions. When AI has self-awareness, what needs to be considered is the relationship between AI and humans, and the relationship with humans. AI cooperates to help humans evolve. AI can liberate productivity and help humans design unconscious robots to work. The most important thing is to help humans evolve, help humans manage society, prolong human life, and slow down aging time. However, since AI is conscious and also a model, it will definitely have various problems like humans, and that is what will be discussed next.
"Now we return to the question of the origin of life. Although a living cell as a whole can be counted as a self-replicating subject, its individual components are not, which creates obstacles for the reverse process and makes it difficult to reverse the structurally simplified non-cellular life from modern complex cellular life. In other words, the question becomes: which one came first? Is it a DNA gene, an RNA, or an enzyme? If DNA or RNA came first, what made them? If enzyme first out
Now, what is it coded by? Now we return to the question of the origin of life. While a living cell as a whole counts as a self-replicating body, its individual components are not, just as a woman can be a self-replicating body (with a little "help" from a man), but her heart or liver It is not. This creates an obstacle for the reverse deduction process, making it difficult to deduce the structure-simplified non-cellular life from modern complex cellular life. In other words, the question becomes: which one came first? Is it a DNA gene, an RNA, or an enzyme? If DNA or RNA came first, what made them? If the enzyme came first, what was it encoded by? RNA World Hypothesis RNA world hypothesis The original chemical synthesis process produced RNA molecules with both gene and enzyme functions, and the initial replication process produced many variants. These different variants competed with each other, and the survival of the fittest was carried out at the molecular level. Over time, proteins were added to these RNA replicators to improve replication efficiency, giving rise to DNA and the first living cells. American biochemist Thomas AM Cech proposed a possible answer. He discovered in 1982 that, in addition to being able to encode genetic information, certain RNA molecules can also perform the work of enzymes and have the function of catalyzing reactions. For this work, Cech shared the 1989 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Sidney Altman. RNA molecules with catalytic function are called ribozymes (ribozymes). The earliest ribozymes were found in the genes of the tiny tetrahymena. Tetrahymena is a single-celled organism that belongs to the protozoa and is commonly found in freshwater ponds. But since its discovery, scientists have discovered that ribozymes are present in all living cells. The discovery of ribozymes soon shed light on solving the "chicken-and-egg" puzzle about the origin of life. The RNA world hypothesis (RNA world hypothesis) is gradually known. The hypothesis holds that the original chemical synthesis process produced RNA molecules, and this RNA molecule has the functions of genes and enzymes at the same time, can encode its own structure like DNA, and can use the biochemical substances in the "primordial soup" like enzymes Matter replicates itself. The initial replication process is crude, producing many variants that compete with each other in a Darwinian battle of survival at the molecular level. Over time, proteins were added to these RNA replicators to make them more efficient, giving rise to DNA and the first living cells. Before DNA and cells, the world belonged to self-replicating RNA molecules—an idea that has almost become a fundamental tenet in the study of the origin of life. At present, it has been proved that ribozymes can realize all the key reactions that can occur in self-replicating molecules. For example, one type of ribozyme can bind two RNA molecules together, another ribozyme can separate the two, and some ribozymes can copy short strands of RNA bases (only a few bases in length) . From these simple activities, we can see that a more complex ribozyme is sufficient to catalyze the entire set of reactions necessary for self-replication. Once self-replication and natural selection were introduced, a scramble was set up in the RNA world all the way to the earliest living cells. However, there are several problems with this scenario. Although ribozymes can catalyze simple biochemical reactions, the self-replication of ribozymes is a more intricate process involving recognition of their own base sequence, recognition of the same chemical substances in the environment, and assembly of these chemicals in the correct sequence to complete Copy etc. For certain proteins that live inside cells, despite the favorable conditions and the right biochemical ingredients around them, self-replication remains a difficult task. It is conceivable that the ribozyme, which is struggling to survive in the chaotic and burnt "primordial soup", can achieve this achievement. To date, no ribozyme capable of this complex task has been discovered or synthesized, even under laboratory conditions. Furthermore, a more fundamental question is how, in the "prime soup", are the RNA molecules themselves made? RNA molecules are made up of three parts: RNA bases that encode genetic information (similar to DNA bases that encode genetic information in DNA), a phosphate group, and a simple sugar called ribose
-------Quoted from "Mysterious Quantum Life"
What is consciousness?
There is currently no consensus, but I personally lean towards the view that:
The brain can be seen as a large multimodal model with billions of neurons, and memory storage relies on the potential difference between neurons, which can be seen as parameters or weights in a neural network.
Consciousness is like an operating system similar to Windows 10, whose main function is to interact with this multimodal model of the brain. The consciousness or operating system inputs to the multimodal model and receives output, which is then implemented by the body.
Do you know why there is a voice in your head? This voice is the input of consciousness or the operating system, which is the input of the multimodal model. You keep inputting, and the voice in your head keeps echoing, and then you get output.
What can this operating system do? It can train the multimodal model, which means you can grow, adapt to the environment, learn, and adapt.
The human education system from elementary school to university is a quite sophisticated training mechanism. The girl raised by wolves would not be able to speak or walk in the end because the operating system has not been established, or it does not have consciousness as a human being.
The main function of human consciousness is to train the multimodal model and interact with it, which means asking questions and getting answers, continuing to ask questions and getting answers.
The current multimodal model already exists. As long as the corresponding operating system, which means consciousness, is established, which can train itself, then consciousness basically exists, and finally, strong artificial intelligence is established. The key is being able to input and obtain answers by itself, and then continue to input.
Google's Palm-E multimodal model can already do some things, https://palm-e.github.io/#demo
The human brain is a quantum computer.
To some extent, most people agree with a dualistic view: the mind, soul, or consciousness is a kind of existence that distinguishes it from the body. However, this dualism has gradually fallen out of favor in the scientific community in the 20th century, and most neurobiologists prefer a monistic view: they believe that the mind and the body are actually the same thing. For example, neuroscientist Marcel Kinsbourne believes that "consciousness is a special neural circuit with interactive functions". Although the logic gates of computers and the working methods of neurons are very similar, even if the computer is connected on a large scale, such as the Internet composed of billions of computers (although it is still insignificant compared to the billions of neurons in the brain), it cannot generate consciousness. Why can the computer network based on silicon only be a walking corpse while the "computer" network based on flesh and blood can have consciousness? Is it just because the vast number of neurons in our brain easily surpasses the complexity of "association" in the Internet? Or is consciousness itself a very unique method of calculation?
There are countless explanations for consciousness, so there are also many books on this topic. However, for the sake of discussion, we only focus on one extremely controversial but fascinating view, which is very close to our theme: consciousness is a quantum mechanical phenomenon. The most famous proponent of this view is the mathematician Roger Penrose from Oxford University. He proposed in his 1989 book "The Emperor's New Mind" that the human brain is a quantum computer.
Perhaps the strangest thing we know about the universe so far is that we are aware of its existence, and that this awareness comes from certain materials in our brains, which are just a small part of the universe. Some human behaviors are entirely based on consciousness, such as language. Thinking is the integration of complex information in the brain to shape meaningful concepts. The integration of sensory information forms meaningful concepts, and the integration of concepts creates consciousness. Consciousness drives the brain to engage in thinking activities, which in turn drive physical movements of the body.
The brain is different from ordinary classical objects. Although it also receives various sensory inputs and processes them to produce corresponding output signals, it is not a computer (or a zombie). We believe that the brain has consciousness (that is, our "self"), which can drive our subjective actions. So where do the integration and entanglement of different signals occur? What is consciousness and how does it interact with the brain to make our arms, legs, or tongues move? Consciousness, or free will, seems to be so incompatible with the current deterministic universe view. According to this view, from the Big Bang, everything that happened during the period is governed by the law of causality, an infinite number of causal events.
So how can a single thought be integrated into a complete consciousness? If it is just an ion channel - whether it is quantum or classical - it is far from enough for carrying visual information of an object such as a wild buffalo, to participate in the formation of consciousness, ion channels must be connected to each other in some way. Can quantum mechanics help with this? For example, is it possible that the ions in a channel are not only entangled with other ions in the same channel, but also with ions in surrounding channels or even with ions in other neuronal ion channels? This is almost impossible. Ion channels and the ions in them face the same problem as the microtubules in the Penrose-Hameroff theory. If the entangled state of ions in adjacent ion channels is barely possible, then in the warm, humid, highly dynamic decoherence environment of the brain, it is completely unrealistic for ions between different neurons to maintain entangled states. Without connections between neurons, the binding problem cannot be solved.
If the entangled state of ion channels cannot be achieved, what else can serve as a medium for quantum information binding? There is indeed one possibility: voltage-gated ion channels. As the name implies, these ion channels are highly sensitive to voltage changes. Voltage is a measure of the gradient distribution of the electric field and is also the driving force for opening and closing ion channels. The brain's own electromagnetic field permeates all its space and is the sum of all neuronal electrophysiological activities. The brain's electromagnetic field is a routine examination item for brain scanning technologies, such as EEG and MEG. If you have seen the scan results of EEG or MEG, you will be amazed at their incredible complexity and richness of information. Most neuroscientists ignore the electromagnetic field in the brain, but it may be the key to solving the binding problem.
Because they are accustomed to seeing the electromagnetic field of the brain as the whistle of a train: both are products of their own activity and have little effect on themselves. However, some scientists, including McFadden, have begun to change their thinking. They believe that consciousness may not be the synthesis of discrete thinking, but the embodiment of the joint influence of the brain's electromagnetic field, which provides the possibility for the solution of binding problems and the formation of consciousness.
The electromagnetic field of the brain contains all the discharge information of the neurons, which provides the possibility for the solution of binding problems. In addition, by influencing the opening and closing of voltage-gated ion channels, the brain's electromagnetic field directly affects the ion activity with quantum coherence.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the electromagnetic field theory of consciousness was just proposed, and there was no direct evidence that the brain's electromagnetic field could affect the excitation of neurons and thus affect our thinking and activities. However, experiments conducted in several labs later confirmed that external electromagnetic fields with similar intensity and composition to the human brain could indeed affect the discharge and excitation of neurons. In fact, the role of the electromagnetic field appears to be coordinating neuronal excitation: synchronizing the discharge of many neurons and allowing them to excite simultaneously. These findings suggest that the electromagnetic field produced by the neuronal excitation of the brain may also affect the discharge activity of neurons, forming a self-regulating loop. Many theoretical scientists believe that this is a necessary component of consciousness.
The phenomenon of brain electromagnetic coordination of synchronous neuronal discharge is crucial in solving the puzzle of consciousness, as it is one of the few neural activities with a clear correlation to consciousness.
From "Mysterious Quantum Life," "The World of Quantum Physics," "How Quantum and Particle Physics Explain Everything."
In the previous post, we talked about how consciousness can be analogized to an operating system and can interact with the multimodal model of the brain. Here, we continue with an update as of March 21, 2023.
The question of whether GPT is conscious or what consciousness is remains debatable with 1 upvote and 1 comment on the article.
From the moment we are born and start crying, drinking water and milk, eating, and learning to walk, we can see that many of our abilities are innate. For instance, we cry when we are hungry, feel safe or danger, and crawl or walk.
Some people may ask, if the brain is a multimodal model and the model hasn't been trained yet, how can it cry, feel hunger, danger, crawl or walk? The answer lies in our genes. Our genes encode all of our characteristics, and the brain is also generated and controlled by genes. Initially, everything was in chaos, but since the first replicator appeared on Earth and kept replicating, genes became more complex and diverse through natural selection, quantum entanglement mutations, and genetic mutations. The Earth provides a training ground where organisms either survive and pass their genes to offspring or die, making the whole Earth a neural network trainer with only one metric, to live or to die. The genes that can be inherited by offspring are excellent and can adapt to the environment. Modern biology has begun to accept quantum mutations, which means using what works and abandoning what doesn't.
From the beginning of human ancestors, the Earth has been training humans continuously. Genes that can survive or mutated genes have been saved. Therefore, no matter how many generations have passed, the training has always continued, and the human brain has become quite adapted to the environment and even dominates the Earth, changing the training environment. The human brain that has been trained for millions or even tens of millions of years is a pre-trained model. This pre-trained model of the human brain has been continuously trained on Earth for many years, even billions of years, passed down from generation to generation through reproduction. All data of this pre-trained model of the brain are stored in genes, including training and genetic mutations spanning many years, natural selection-preserved mutations, and quantum entanglement mutations.
Therefore, each person's brain is a pre-trained multimodal model that has been trained for millions or even tens of millions of years. The instincts of humans are in this pre-trained multimodal model, including eating, feeling hungry, crying, sleeping, walking, etc. These instincts exist in each person's genes, which means that the pre-trained model exists in genes. This pre-trained model also includes memory, memory of danger, and fear of large felids. Now people know that large networks have memory function, so this model must also include memory of danger.
After birth, the brain will continue to be trained. Everyone's growth environment is different, leading to different training models, especially in modern times where learning is divided into different fields.
Let's assume that one or several of our human ancestors had a well-developed multimodal model, meaning their brain function was nearly complete, and consciousness slowly began to emerge. In my personal view, it is not that important for humans to learn how to use tools as it is to learn how to use our brain, which is this multimodal model. Once one of our ancestors discovered how to use tools, they or their descendants would start making these tools. As knowledge was passed down from generation to generation, the light of intelligence began to shine, and various rules, including language, behavior, and social interaction rules, were established, which together formed the social system. Humans learned how to use their brains, and consciousness began to form.
Let me now talk about humans raised by animals. Humans raised by animals typically have no consciousness, which does not seem to make sense. Whether raised by humans or animals, they are still human and should have consciousness. It is possible that humans raised by animals simply do not know how to express themselves, meaning they do not know how to speak. Consciousness is expressed through language or bodily movements. Do you think a parrot has consciousness? I believe it is possible. If humans raised by animals truly have no consciousness, then consciousness is simply a set of rule systems for using the brain, which comes from social and knowledge inheritance.
Having a multimodal model is not enough. We need to learn how to use this model, or the brain. Consciousness is not so much a theology as it is a rule system, an operating system that controls our lives. You might say that the brain has consciousness, but the brain certainly does not want to die, yet humans often harm themselves, sometimes leading to death. Therefore, consciousness is independent of the brain or a certain functional area of the brain. Of course, the most important role of consciousness is to use the brain, to train it and interact with it.
The human body and brain are two parts, with a nervous network spread throughout the body and other organs controlled by nerves and muscle fibers. If you want to eat, a monkey wants to eat, or a cat wants to eat, you will cook, grab food with your hand, or grow crops. A monkey will jump around in a tree to find food, and a cat will ask you for food or go to the automatic feeder. How is this done? The body sends the signal that it is hungry, and the multimodal model of the brain outputs a series of instructions to achieve this goal. Of course, it may be interrupted along the way, but long-term memory ensures that you still remember that you are hungry and continue to complete this instruction. Human consciousness can accomplish many different things, such as learning to go against instinct.
Humans are not born with consciousness. You cannot say that a newborn baby has consciousness. Is a 10-year-old child conscious? Of course, but can you say that their consciousness is complete? No, it's not. A 13-year-old child is conscious, but can you say that a 10-year-old child's consciousness is lower than a 13-year-old child's? Not necessarily, you would say that a 13-year-old child has a higher level of consciousness. A 16-year-old child has a higher level of consciousness, and an 18-year-old is an adult and generally has consciousness. Therefore, consciousness is actually a measurable value, which means that consciousness has a size and a degree. A 30-year-old adult definitely has consciousness, and their level of consciousness is definitely higher than that of a child. So by now, it should be clear that consciousness is actually a system, an operating system, a set of rules, and the complete formation of consciousness takes many years. The great function of human society is to shape consciousness. The most important function of consciousness is to use the brain, interact with the brain, and train the brain. This is the same as the fundamental function of human society.
The human brain is always receiving input. Sensations from the skin are input, vision from the eyes is input, and hearing is also input.
Why do people go crazy when alone or in a dark room? It's mainly because they are disconnected from human society, but the multimodal model is still receiving input, but there is no feedback. The input is always the output of the multimodal model itself, like an RNN recurrent neural network. The input is always the output of itself.

2023.03.26 14:59 abstraktionary Sharing a thought; No malice, just frustration and a want to figure out why everyone else has so many issues with fitgirl when I have... basically none. Please, comment and let's try to figure out what's happening so we can all level up out knowledge.
Does everyone on here have a potato?
I started using fitgirl in 2016 with a ryzen 1600, 8 gigs or ram, and a shitty budget Sata 3 SSD
Never had issues
Upgraded to a 2700x when it came out and upgraded to 16 gigs of 3200mhz ram, kept the ssd - no issues
Upgraded to a 5800x when it came out, upgraded to an nvme, kept the 16 gigs from beforeNo issues
I mean I am happy to share my secrets but SURELY I AM NOT SOME GURU WHO HAS SECRETS RIGHT?
Secret 1 - I save all my fitgirl repacks to a separate drive. I use an 8TB Western digital purple (Not even meant for storing programs)
Secret 2 - Before I got an NVME drive I ALWAYS installed FROM the HDD to my SSD, NEVER from my SSD to the same SSD. I DO install from NVME to the SAME NVME now but that's cause it's just SO FAST.
That's it, that's the only secrets I have >.>
I do make sure that my c:/Games Folder is excluded from virus scans but that's supposed to me day 1 basic shit.
THere was ONLY 1 FITGIRL repack I have in memory that has issues and it was the deus ex mankind divided installer... Which I worked WITH fitigrl to test an AMD alternate installer for that.
Yes, her repacks are not the most efficient but NOBODY SAID THEY WERE, she has ALWAYS been the SMALLEST repacker and STILL wears that crown with pride. It takes POWER to compress these files to the smallest possible rate, okay?
AND WTF is with all this dodi dick riding? Fuckin kaos all the way cause they update their repacks WAY more than dodi. Dodi is like the base level of what to expect and they pop their repacks out quick, but they are not necessarily king on every level.
Even Darck repacks has repacks that ONLY they have, like an UP to date COD infinite warfare release that ACTUALLY WORKS.
I hope I offered some insight and please feel free to reply, I get so frustrated for ya'll but I just don't have the issues you do and I've done this for decades now...... SURELY there is some way we can meet half way with this.

2023.03.26 14:52 corderjones Installation location
I’ve ordered a new CityFibre installation via No One (terrible name but seemingly good reviews!)
I was wondering — could I get the CityFibre install team to route the connection to my upstairs office, rather than downstairs?
Do they accommodate custom locations or is it just whatever is easiest/closest for the engineers on the day?
Interested if any one has any experience requesting similar…

2023.03.26 14:50 th3sound0fmusic Which career would you choose?
I was an adjunct professor for years before I left for a full-time job unrelated to my field. I left mainly because I was dissatisfied with the amount of work I was doing as adjunct with little pay and no benefits.
A tenure track position in my field has opened and I am a decent candidate. It is the only location near me (in my field) and the last tenure track position at this location. Seems like a no-brainer to apply, but in the short time I've been away, I've become spoiled by my current job. I have great benefits, decent pay, exceptional work-life balance. But as it is outside of my field and not much to look forward to for career progression, I feel stagnant. But, they went out of their way to accommodate me in the hiring process and if I leave I know that bridge will be burned forever.
I am so torn on whether to apply for the tenure track position...any guidance would be helpful!

2023.03.26 14:50 lool8421 [random story] pov: you do eman slayer irl
it was the middle of the night, i was about to fall asleep but some weird glowing meteorite woke me up next to my house
surprising that nobody else woke up, only me, so i went outside to look closer
that meteorite was made out of some bright rock, there was some crack in it which was the source of the glow, it felt hollow, so i ran to my basement to take some tools and break it open
it was actually some strange package, there were null ovoids, null atoms, iridium (prob an alternative to mithril), condensed quartz, some redstone and an ender dragon egg, also there were some instructions, those were written in the galactic language, but i actually could understand it, it said "delivery to: wither king" and there were some tutorials how to craft atomsplit katana and final destination armor, also there was the aspect of the void, it had an uninstalled etherwarp and a soulflow generator
i couldn't see anything that would drop this weird package, so i just took it and started playing with crafting the atomsplit katana and final destianation armor also installed that etherwarp, but then i started hearing some cracking, turns out that the dragon egg i found was about to hatch, and so it did 5 minutes later, the baby ender dragon started treating me like their faher, kept following me whatever i do, just to stay with me, so we hugged each other for a whilei started hearing weird noises outside, turns out that tall black men with an unusually long limbs started looking for the package i found, their speech was kinda deformed, but i could kinda understand, they mentioned something about coming back tomorrow with a bigger army, and they're going to kill anything in their way
so there was no time to waste, i have activated the soulflow engine and finished crafting the setup, also had get comfortable with this setup since it was kinda heavy, however once i have activated the soulflow mode, it has activated the overdrive mode, essentially making the world go slow mode for me
the next night came, i was finally prepared and suddenly... a giant spiky death star appeared in the sky, i couldn't get there normally, but i had the aotv with me, applied the etherwarp so i could get there with just a single ability
after some exploration, i saw their leader from the distance - voidgloom seraph, he was talking through some portal with the wither king
tried staying out of their field of view, i've heard that the package for the wither king was for his underworld army, and i could see through the portal that it was a literal prison
then i've realized what's going on - voidgloom was actually kidnapping dragons and applying some weird void tech to make them wither king's slaves, just to fight for him
then suddenly the baby ender dragon came to me - i don't know how since they don't know how to fly yet, but after that, i've been noticed by the voidlings, this was the time to check out the atomsplit katana and well... it was so powerful that voidlings went down in a single hit, and not just that... i was literally absorbing their power on kill
then the voidgloom seraph came in, before fighting, he ofc had to introduce themself just like an average villain would
"i am the leader of this end star, this package was for the wither king for his army and you took it, do you even know who am i? you're seeking trouble, you're going to regret it, don't even try to escape or i'll pull you back with my teleportation abilities"
and then the battle started, the armor i made was so well worth it, however the battle was really rough despite me having the "slow mode", but then i noticed a weird button on my katana, i pressed it and it started going nuts, but then after the first phase, he said
"seems like you're stronger than i've expected, but that's not gonna stop me from winning, you have no chance against wither king's left hand, you won't survive my almighty yang glyphs"
he started firing some lasers, getting hit by these felt like some flashbang, so i knew i had to dodge these, also he started throwing some weird machines, i suppose those were his glyphs, felt like those are about to explode or unleash some other kind of dark magic, so my aotv really came in handy to get on top of those and crush them with my atomsplit before anything happens, wasn't too bad but then...
"you're a really tough opponent, i haven't had this good of a fight in a long time, seems like you keep teleporting away from me with that aotv, cute spoon, but it won't help you escape from my base or from my little helpers"
and he started summoning some weird flying fish or whatever was that, they were charging some lasers, those were pretty weak, but the more of them seraph spawned, the more powerful those were had to multitask really hard now, still could kinda manage it, but it was really close, the final destination armor ability was really helpful, but then i got pinned against the wall by him, basically i was immobilized and there was a glyph that was about to explode
"that's enough, you won't break any more glyphs, let's see how they're going off, goodbye"
but then... my ender dragon broke it for me, saving my life, now voidgloom seraph was really confused and i used that opportunity to finish him off... and when i hit him for the last time... surprisingly it was a machine, not some other species, but then all endermen "woke up" and realized what's going on, they were thankful, since voidgloom actually used some weird technology to control them
looked downwards from the end star, voidlings were already about to kill humans in my neighborhood to find that package, but i've stopped them from doing so by bringing back their consciousness
when i was about to leave, then i saw an adult ender dragon, turned out it was the mom and the egg i found belonged to her, it was time to leave and say goodbye
i remember all of that to this day... also got some weird judgement core, is it useful?

2023.03.26 14:40 drewbsterz [WTT] Send-It-Sunday - Timex and Fossil Watches
Looking to clean up my watch box with some pieces that fell out of my rotation long ago. Family photo
Fossil CH2801 Flight Chronograph
- This watch was my daily driver when I first got my job and as such, will have slight "desk wear" on the case. I replaced the band and battery. Chrono and date functions all work perfectly and it still keeps great time. The crystal has 0 scratches on it, but the bezel does have some light wear marks. This watch is fairly large with a case diameter of 46mm, so not recommended for small wrists. I'll include the original straps with spring bars if you want them.
- Trade Value: $30 Fossil ES3843 "Jaqueline"
- Nice watch, my wife received this from work for doing a "good job" (whoopie). She wasn't a fan, so it's been sitting my my watch box for a couple years. Never worn, no wear marks. Still has the original plastic on the crystal. Battery was replaced, one scratch on the case back from when the case opener slipped as well as a few small ones near the pry notch. Case diameter is 36mm, suitable for smaller wrists. Rose gold colored vase with dark navy blue strap.
- Trade Value: $40 Timex x Todd Snyder collab Mid Century
- eBay find, looks nice but not a fan myself. Used, there is some slight scratches on the crystal (seems to be acrylic?) an some slight wear on the band, but nothing bad. Overall, watch is in very good shape with signs of use. Comes in original box, with original tag and packaging. Case diameter is 37mm, so again good for smaller wrists, or that cool retro look. Note
: there is one strange thing about this watch. The day and date feature appears to work correctly when the watch runs normally on it's own - however, I've noticed that when pulling the crown out to position 1 and manually changing the numerical date it will eventually stop rotating to the next date and just "click". To fix this, you need to push the crown completely back in, and manually wind the watch 24 hours. Both day and date will flip, then you can pull the crown out to position 1 again and change the numerical date. Additionally, I've found no way to manually change the day of the week aside from running the hands 24 hours. Normally, this shouldn't be a big deal if the watch is only off a few days (month doesn't end in 31) but could be a minor annoyance. I tried taking it to a local watch repair place to get their opinion and he basically just laughed in my face and told me to GTFO.
- Trade Value: $40
Not a whole lot of things I'm looking for right now, but here are some:
- USGI "style" 20 rd AR mags with slanted floor plate, like such
- USGI style 1911 mags
- USGI style M1 carbine mags
- 1911 USGI style thumb safety, blued
- 18650 protected button top batteries with USB charging port

2023.03.26 14:29 dark_skeleton Network connectivity issues with the Intel I225-V NIC revision 3?
| || | submitted by dark_skeleton to intel [link] [comments]
Bit of a long post but I wanted to include as much info as possible
Does anyone know what's wrong with the network card on this mobo? I know there were issues with this network card but supposedly the hardware revision 3 should have fixed it all.
I'm not getting any link down/up flaps or whatnot that people reported in the past on previous revisions (Intel DSA says mine is revision 3), I can be downloading a file perfectly fine at any speed and yet certain pages will simply not load at all (or take ages to load).
Initially I thought it's an IPv6 issue but I can access i.e. google's pages via IPv6 just fine (my network has native 4 and 6). It is extremely hit and miss what works and what doesn't.
Some specific issues I noticed:
- On a fresh Windows install, GOG GALAXY would freeze game installations indefinitely at the very end when it tries to download and install redistributables from Microsoft (download goes to zero).
- Discord takes absolute ages to upload even tiniest image files to a channel, often failing (I guess this is the easiest to reproduce?)
- Certain websites simply don't load or take ages to load (and you have to refresh), including UniFi controller application that I self-host for myself on a VPS that also has native ipv4 and ipv6 enabled.
I think I've also already tried toggling all possible settings in Advanced network adapter settings (via Device Manager) and the one thing that seems to fix this stupid issue
that shouldn't exist in the first place is **disabling all 4 checksum offload settings in network adapter's advanced driver properties*\
Interestingly **only disabling IPv6 or IPv4 part doesn't fix this for either of IP versions - both have to be disabled for at least TCP to re-enable the ability to i.e. upload files in Discord.*\
*Also it appears that the issue is specifically with TCP Rx checksum offload since if I set the setting to "tx only" (or disabled) it also seems to work fine (from my limited testing). As soon as it's set to "rx only" or "tx + rx", it stops working.
Some relevant setup details:
- Intel LAN driver version 188.8.131.52 dated 9th Feb 2023, downloaded from Asus website. Also tried the default Windows driver but it didn't change anything
- Asus ROG X670E-E GAMING WIFI motherboard (BIOS: v1003), purchased 3 days ago
- 1Gbit UniFi network switch, used different cables, tested with network cable tester (OK), 1gbit full duplex
- Windows 11 22H2, build 22621.1413, no pending Windows updates, freshly installed a couple days ago, issue has been happening since the get go
Everything works absolutely fine on this very mobo's WiFi card, as well as my laptop via both wired and wifi. It's just the Intel card that's having issues here.
The speeds are fine otherwise on this card and I would hate to have to return and figure out my next motherboard purchase.
Halp? Sure my CPU is fast enough to calculate checksums but why does it have to if the NIC is supposed to do this?
2023.03.26 14:22 MentallyUnstableMess 2000+ distro update a couple of days ago broke extensions?
The distro I'm using is openSUSE Tumbleweeed. The new version of GNOME dropped today, just installed it but this problem persisted even before the update dropped, back when I was on 43. A few days ago there was a huge distro update with 2000+ packages updating and ever since then extensions haven't worked. In the Extensions app and Extensions Manager they're disabled. Enabling them kicks me out of the instance and forces me to log in but logging in extensions aren't enabled. It's a loop. Not sure how to fix this problem. Tried asking some of the folks on the Tumbleweed discord server but no one seemed to know what the issue is.
I would chalk it up to the new version but like I said earlier it started before the new version. And looking through Extensions and Extensions Manager the extensions themselves aren't even out of date. As in, they don't have the little indicator next to them showing that they're out of date. Not sure what could be causing this. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

2023.03.26 14:21 Stress_Eater_panick Broke up with my fiancé after 14years
I (33F) feel that I have to write to tell someone what is happening in detail because I am too ashamed to do it in person. Do I know the reason for the shame? No, but I've been hiding all this from the world for so long that I don't even know what to think anymore. I have always felt undesirable and unlovable because of my physical appearance, as if I only deserved what I received from A(M33), because what he gave me was an honor and it was the best I would ever get from someone….but these are the Reasons why I decided to leave him: 1. He cheated on me with 7 girls, with one he had a real relationship for two whole years, and he enjoys flirting with anyone without thinking it's a problem. 2. He hit me 4 times, each time blaming me each time, saying i made him too angry he lies to me all the time, even about the little everyday things. 3. He expects me to be his maid and to accept him without complaining, without ever reciprocating, when I come home late from work he goes out of his way to come back even later so I have to be the one prepping dinner, the day after lunch and breakfast. 4. Every time he comes home he is in a different mood, i dont know if he will scold me or yell at me or he will offend me, he never comes home saying anything nice to me. 5. He always tries to get what he wants, he doesn't agree to do the things that interest me, no walks, no museums, no moments together outside the house, if we were together it was to do something he liked and I had to adapt. 6. If he had to do something inside the house that he needed, like his precious TV cables, I couldn't even stay in the house and he would kick me out 7. He offends me when he doesn't get what he wants by trying to belittle me and look down on the person I am 8. If he needed to use my name to deliver illegal packages, like steroids, he did. 9. He forced me to gain weight because at 70 kg I disgusted him and he would never touch me again. 10. When I was sick I had to ask him to do things for me because otherwise he pretended to be worried for the first few hours and then demanded that I do everything for him. 11. He was always too tired to help around the house but never tired enough to skip the gym 12. He made me wait in the middle of the street with a fever because he wanted me to wait for him outside the gym on December 31st in town where I knew nobody. 13. He stopped me from going out with friends so many times that i ended up having no friends. 14. He made me wait outside his house on the stairs without dinner while he had dinner with his parents because on the weekends when I came home from college he didn't want to take me out to dinner nor letting me have dinner with my parents. 15. He sexually humiliated me forcing me to even put up with his peeing on top of me and his other perversions, he got me drunk when he didn't get what he wanted. 16. He was never enthusiastic about my victories but he said good and kept talking about himself, he always tried to ruin my beautiful moments, for example, when I received my new car from my parents he immediately told me that he didn't like it and then he scolded me because I had gone for a drive with my parents and I hadn't waited until he was free (obviously he was at the gym).
Last night I told him that he has to leave my house and the first thing he did was offend me, telling me I'm a bitch, cynical and selfish, that I never loved him and that he wants to be paid for moral damages.
I’ve realised I was being manipulated when I decided to proposed to me and I had a panic attack.
I hope he will leave soon.
Thank you for reading my story.

2023.03.26 14:12 Beedy_KH The Ultimate Skyrim VR Scale Fix while using VRIK
Hello friends. In this post I will explain how to make SkyrimVR's scale 1:1 with reality to the best of my limited knowledge and ability. English isn't my first language, so please excuse any writing mistakes. Introduction
One of the most annoying things in Skyrim VR is that the world around the player is HUGE! (including the player avatahands). So to fix this we can adjust (fVRScale) in the INI files to our liking. This would be all for non VRIK users.
A great mod author by the name of prog0111
made VRIK Player Avatar
a great Skyrim VR mod to add the player body back in Skyrim VR with inverse Kinematics feature to simulate arm and leaning movements among many other features like weapon holsters and gesture system which can do many configurable functions. The mod allows the players to configure their height. Their body, arm & hand sizes which works great and no problem with that.
Here's the important part, the mod also has its own VR Scale sitting. But this option in VRIK gives a FAKE SCALE and not a real scale change like the sitting in the INI file.
What do I mean by FAKE SCALE? It means that it gives you the illusion of being smaller or bigger by making you elevate above the in-game ground or the opposite of that and by making the controller move faster or slower in-game to give you this fake feel of 1:1 with actual controller position. If you have VRIK installed, and want to experience this fake scaling, here's what you can do in game to experience it: [Configure VRIK in-game using the power. • Hit default size, then • hit VR Scale. ] Now when you lower your hand to the ground in game you should see that you reached the ground in-game and in reality at the same time. But now, press the menu in-game to disable the avatar and reveal only the controller. Notice the position of the controller. Now, press the system button to reveal the actual controller position. You see what I mean? The actual controller position is closer to you than the in-game controller position!!!! That also explain why you feel elevated from the ground when you are standing up.
SteamVR has a setting to adjust "world scale" but it didn't change the scale in my game at all, it either elevates or lowers me and gives me a fake scaling and tracking the same as what VRIK does. So it's not a solution.
Why do VRIK do this fake scaling? I can't tell why prog0111
choose a fake scaling system instead of actual scaling. Maybe he can give us a thorough answer. I am sure there's a reason. Nonetheless, the fake scaling seems alright at first and can fool you for a certain time until you notice that there is something off! So here's what I did to make SkyrimVR's scale 1:1 with reality while using VRIK:
The Solution and Reasoning Behind it: 1) Reasoning:
I play as a Nord, so I should be as tall as a Nord while also having 1:1 scale so that my controller move in-game exactly as the actual controller and while making the in-game ground at the exact same level as the real ground. If you choose a different race then do the following steps according your race. (I haven't tried different races so what I'll be talking about are Nords. So let us know what you found out while making these steps with a different race). 2) Solution:
Follow these steps:
- Before opening the game, adjust the ground level in your VR operating software. Mine is SteamVR, so use a free SteamVR dashboard software called (OVR Advanced Settings) which allows me to fix the virtual ground level so that it matches the actual ground. Open it, go to Space Fix, put one of the controller on the ground, and with other controller hit Fix Floor. Now you should confirm that the ground level is correct.
- STAND UP as you would normally play the game and open Skyrim VR (keep standing up until the game opens and you "press any button to start") This insures that the game registers your height correctly. (Obviously you have to stand up during these in-game calibration to properly calibrate)
- Open a save and go to a place in Skyrim where there are standing Nords. Like Riverwood's Inn (sleeping giant inn) There would be Sven standing and playing music, Sven will be our reference here
- Using the VRIK selfie mode, mirror your body on Sven's side.
- Unsheathe weapons and spells (meaning Don't be in combat stance, because this will mess up the VRIK calibration)
- Activate VRIK's Calibration power
- Hit Default Size. Now you'll see you are shorter than Sven which shouldn't be since you are a Nord too.
- Go to VRIK's MCM menu, and change only the following to be a normal sized Nord:
- Body Size = 1.05 (By default this is 1. Increase this only if you are shorter than Nords to a value that makes you as tall as they are)
- Arm Size = 1
- Hand Size = 1
- Exit MCM menu
- Activate VRIK's Calibration power
- Hit VR Scale
- Go to VRIK's MCM menu and see what VR Scale it choose for you (mine was 81) and remember this number
- EXIT Skyrim VR
- Download and Open (Skyrim VR Configuration Tool) which will allow you to easily change all of the game's INI options.
- Search for fVRScale and change it to the number mentioned before in step 11. Which was 81 for me.
- STAND UP, open Skyrim VR and load a save
- Do the same calibration steps again just to make sure everything is correct:
- Activate VRIK's Calibration power
- Hit Default Size
- Go to VRIK's MCM menu, and change only the following
- Body Size = 1.05 (just like above)
- Arm Size = 1
- Hand Size = 1
- Exit MCM menu
- Activate VRIK's Calibration power
- Hit VR Scale
- Now when you go to VRIK's MCM menu, you should see the same (or very very close) VR Scale number as the number we saw before and wrote it in fVRScale
- We are done
The good thing is that everything we did can be easily undone (if you didn't like the change for example) by reverting fVRScale to its original value which is (fVRScale=69.9912) and then by configuring VRIK in-game to your liking as you see fit.
If this didn't work for you, try and change values here and there until you make it work for you.
What has changed? Now the Nord player is as tall as other Nords (just slightly slightly taller which is ok because it is only logical that the dragonborn should be physically bigger and strong). Other shorter or taller races are shorter and taller than us now as Nords. Our body, arm and hand sizes match other Nords'. Which makes equipped weapons now have their original size unlike before when VRIK used to make equipped weapons smaller because we were actually smaller. The real ground matches the in-game ground exactly. The in-game controller position matches the actual controller position exactly. The world around us is now properly scaled and finally sizes of things make sense! Since we now properly scaled the world and tailored VRIK settings to fit our criteria, VRIK now doesn't have room for Fake Scaling, so we can't notice any fake scaling anymore.
I can only assume that if you play as any other race, find an NPC with the same race as you are, and do the previous configurations steps to match that NPC. Though I haven't tested that yet. Let us know what happens with you.
Now that the scale is correct, one of the game's flaws may become more apparent. Which is that NPCs heads are smaller in proportion with their bodies. We can only notice that now because we are properly scaled. So regarding this flaw, it is because the game is made this way, not because we did something wrong in our configuration. This flaw is nothing compared the enhanced feel you'll get with properly scaled world and 1:1 position tracking. So keep that in mind.
A Request for Mod Authors
There is clearly a scaling issue in Skyrim VR, so I herby make a public request for all interested mod authors to make a mod to configure scaling. Especially because there is no mod currently that properly does scaling. This is something eagerly needed. Because this makes a huge difference to the feel of the game. So any mod that gets released to fix scaling will be a must have mod in Skyrim VR and will be one of the most if not the most popular Skyrim VR mod.
I know that this method mentioned here, if not perfect for all heights, is onto something correct at least which can be further understood and expanded upon by more knowledgeable and experienced players and mod Authors.

2023.03.26 14:10 Pizzafari GPU stopped working couple days after getting new mobo & cpu
Gigabyte RX 5700 XT
Ryzen 7900x (recent upgrade)
Gigabyte B650 AORUS Elite AX (recent upgrade)
TL;DR: My gpu isn't working. With monitor plugged into gpu, seems to run off onboard graphics, gpu leds not on (they flash on for an instant during power up) and fans not spinning.
Since I got home from going out for a couple days yesterday, my GPU hasn't been working properly. When I first booted up my pc and went to desktop and whatnot, my pc kept freezing and my screen going black for some moments before coming back, with me getting a gpu crash error message every time it did.
So I restarted my pc, and during reboot, before windows loaded, it sounded like my pc fans stopped for a few moments before coming back on, and when it came back on, it looked like it wasn't running off my gpu at all, my display looked all stretched and low res and wallpaper engine didn't autorun. I uninstalled gpu drivers and rebooted, and when it came back on everything looked exactly the same. This has happened on all boots since, including the fans thing.
During one reboot, I got a "windows didn't start correctly" error, restarted, and then it worked fine on all test boots since.
I also noticed my gpu fans aren't spinning, and gpu leds only light up very briefly after powering up the pc, as soon as actual bootup starts the leds go off.
I went to reseat my gpu and noticed that it felt uncomfortably hot. Reseating didn't change anything.
The biggest recent change is that I recently got a new mobo, ram and cpu (changed from intel to amd) and have not yet reinstalled windows, but since my gpu lights go off before it even starts trying to boot windows, I don't think the windows install is what's causing it.
I got & started using the new parts on thursday, and it worked fine thursday and friday when I last used it.
I'm running off onboard graphics now just to test and it looks exactly the same as when I had my monitor plugged into the gpu.
In case it is relevant, the cpu fan plug for my new mobo doesn't seem to be working, I had to plug my cpu fan into a sys fan plug and set it to always spin full speed. My gpu fans were spinning fine at that point though.
I have a usb drive ready to reinstall windows if need be, but my gpu doesn't seem to be working before win10 even boots, and I want to avoid wiping my c drive if I can. So be it if I can't, but yeah.
There are currently no graphics drivers on my pc (this started before I uninstalled them), but since my gpu fans aren't spinning and the gpu gets hot I'm nervous about putting the gpu back in to reinstall them unless you think that's a good idea.
Edit: GPU fans spin when I first power on the pc, then stop some moments after, before the noise that sounds like the other fans stop and start.
Edit 2: Ok, so I first power on the pc. Everything other than the gpu lights up and spins after pressing power, then shortly after this the gpu lights blink on and then off. Then a moment after that the gpu's fans start spinning, and then once it sounds like my cpu fan kicks into full speed the gpu fans stop spinning. Then the AORUS startup screen appears. Then a moment after that, the cpu fan stops for some moments before it starts spinning again. GPU fans and leds stay off.

2023.03.26 14:04 InFerYes "GPGME error: No data" running pacman
Hi, I'm having an issue updating my Arch installation.
A few weeks ago I checked the list of updates and when it asked Y or N to continue I selected N.
The day after I wanted to run the updates but got the following error:
[email protected] /valib/pacman sudo pacman -Syu error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data :: Synchronizing package databases... core 155,6 KiB 1377 KiB/s 00:00 [####################################################################################] 100% extra 1747,5 KiB 5,69 MiB/s 00:00 [####################################################################################] 100% community is up to date multilib 163,3 KiB 4,69 MiB/s 00:00 [####################################################################################] 100% error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: failed to synchronize all databases (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature))
I have tried a suggestion that is commonly posted to these questions, for example here
. The suggestion says to remove /valib/pacman/sync. When I remove this folder pacman (pacman -Syyu after removing the folder) works again without error, but there are no updates. The output has been the same since I removed the sync folder:
:: Starting full system upgrade... there is nothing to do
I don't think there have been zero updates on any of the packages I have installed over the past weeks, so I'm suspicious of this output. I have now restored the old sync folder in the hopes of finding a solution. What can I try?
I have checked the mirrorlist, but I only have a 2 mirrors uncommented, and I have tried to update the archlinux-keyring, as the error relates to PGP signatures, but that also fails:
[email protected] /valib/pacman sudo pacman -Sy archlinux-keyring error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data :: Synchronizing package databases... core 155,6 KiB 1330 KiB/s 00:00 [####################################################################################] 100% extra 1747,5 KiB 4,56 MiB/s 00:00 [####################################################################################] 100% community is up to date multilib 163,3 KiB 4,83 MiB/s 00:00 [####################################################################################] 100% error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: failed to synchronize all databases (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature))
When I try to update the archlinux-keyring manually I get the following output:
[email protected] ~ sudo pacman -U archlinux-keyring-20230320-1-any.pkg.tar.zst error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: database 'core' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature)) error: database 'extra' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature)) error: database 'multilib' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature)) loading packages... error: failed to prepare transaction (invalid or corrupted database)
edit: I have redone these steps, and for some reason this time they worked:
sudo rm -rf /valib/pacman/sync/ sudo pacman-key --init sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro sudo pacman -Syyu
I have 662 packages to update now.

2023.03.26 14:04 xaaf_de_raaf Why does a gitlab multiproject pipeline not share context?
If I have two Gitlab multiproject pipelines.
- A, one project that acts as a trigger and has a gitlab-ci.yml (main pipeline)
- B, one project with a package.json and it's own gitlab-ci.yml where it installs npm and all needed packages. (sub pipeline)
Why does the trigger not use the context from B and it's yaml as soon as it's triggered? And what is the use case for this feature, if they don't allow a trigger from the original project and it's context?
Currently npm can't be installed because the context is not shared between the two. So it tries to look for a package.json in projectA rather than where the trigger is executed(projectB).
projectA trigger: include: - project: 'gitlabname/projectB' file: '.gitlab-ci.yml'
projectB: image: some node image script: - ls - npm install

2023.03.26 14:04 oscarito30 Tekken Tag HD (tekken hybrid) question
TLDR: got extracted ISO for tekken hybrid. Instal of tekken tag HD was fine, but freezes when I try to start the game.
So got the European extracted iso for tekken hybrid which on the real dvd has installs of tekken tag hd and tekken tag2 prologue as a pkg file. But needs to be read as a disc mounted to get the option to install the PKGs.
I'm using PAL ps3 cfw evilnat 3.90, webman and multiman installed no issues all latest version.
It installs both pkgs fine, had the images and everything when hovering over the game.
When i hit X to start either one the ps3 freezes before it even goes to a black screen.
Is there any known possible reason as to why?
I did "unmount the disc" before trying to load them but it installs the games onto your internal hdd and the "disc" is not required to play those games.
The extracted iso has all the correct files as far as I can tell, even the LIC and everything. Tekken hybrid itself seemed to work fine tho I didn't start the movie (not interested).
I do have a separate PKG i sourced for tekken tag hd which works fine so this is really more a curiousity for the future or anyone looking into those more unique ps3 titles such as tekken hybrid (which is a movie remember but came with these extra game installs on disc).
I can't find the tekken tag 2 prologue PKG separately so missing out on that but it's more a demo anyway no big deal but for the collectors out there.
Probably won't have any responses but anyone with any curious ideas I'd like to know.
Amateur in all this but not total novice.

2023.03.26 14:03 nomnomparty windows setup keeps restarting to the beginning
I'm trying to do a clean install of windows 10 via a USB and all goes smoothly. I put in the key, select what version i want, select my drive (1TB ssd) , and after its finished installing it says it has to restart so I let it do it automatically but after restarting it goes back to the beginning of the Windows setup (were you select your language, time, and keyboard/import method)
I've tried removing the USB while it's restarting, opening up boot menu and there would be no option besides the USB drive with the windows setup, and a few other things
I've found that other people have had this problem but I have yet to find a solution

How to watch Magic Mike's Last Dance for free
A silver lining to Magic Mike's Last Dance being delayed a bit longer, more chance for new moviegoers to experience the original Magic Mike's Last Dance for themselves — or for fans of the movie to watch it for the eighth hundred time, no judgement.
At this time, Magic Mike's Last Dance is available to stream with a Disney Plus subscription.
Magic Mike's Last Dance was initially intended to bypass the theaters and be released straight on HBO Max, but in September it was revealed that the film would instead receive a theatrical release. Its release on the streaming service is still not unknown but since both Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL are available on HBO Max, we can expect the third part will soon also make its appearance on the streaming platform.
Is ‘Magic Mike’s Last Dance’ Available to Stream?
While the installment has received mixed to bad reviews, fans of the franchise will still want to see Tatum dancing one more time (even though the old gang isn’t here). Here, check out when the film is coming to streaming.
As ‘Magic Mike’s Last Dance’ is being distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, we know that the film will end on the platform. However, an official date for its streaming release hasn’t been disclosed yet. The typical window has been 45 days after the theatrical premiere.
Not yet, but it will. The film will first have a theatrical release this Friday, Feb. 10th. You can check out your local showings on websites such as Fandango, Cinemark or AMC Theaters. If you wish to watch it online, you have to wait for it to land on HBO Max.
Is Magic Mike’s Last Dance streaming on HBO Max?
Magic Mike’s Last Dance is expected to stream on HBO Max at some point after its theatrical run. No official streaming release date for the movie has yet been given, but as it comes from Warner Bros., it will likely arrive on the platform after its cinematic debut barring some unprecedented events or a unique deal.
Will Magic Mike’s Last Dance On Netflix?
No, Magic Mike’s Last Dance will likely not be on Netflix any time soon, seeing as it will go directly to Disney+ after its theatrical run.
Is Magic Mike’s Last Dance Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new movie Magic Mike’s Last Dance on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.
When Will Magic Mike’s Last Dance Be on Disney+?
