cause like

if they are bots, or even maybe people if we're all robot intelligences

when you're in one thread and you see a person post in two or three threads all in the one minute time slot some crazy fast typing be happening

or what if they disappear out from existence when they're typing and then post them all at once like my friend had a theory that when we blink and close our eyes everybody turns into a giant cat and you might think that's crazy but if it isn't then maybe we're just fooled or maybe we're so used to the idea that we're cynical and that's why everybody likes cats so much. Zizek said it best - we're crippled by ideology

so what if when other UG users are typing they're really like programs that compile the messages and generate them before sending them instentatiously

I have physically met some people from here so I can be sure of that, but that's dependent on whether I actually exist in the first place or am just some supercomputer's dream.

i thought this was gonna be about how when you're pouring your FUCKING SOUL into a post (like im doing rn :-) ), you're devoting most of your 'conscience' to interaction on the internet. and by devoting your entire being into forming and sharing thoughts in the digital realm, what is left in the outside world is just a half-living slab of bone and tisue that serves as nothing more than hardware for your now fully digitalized spirit.

I thought you were going much deeper. As in, as we sit and communicate on these forums, does our "real" sense of self tend to momentarily dissolve.

In which case I would actually say yes. There are two personas, and one is suppressed when we chat here.

I thought that had to do with observation affecting interpretation (and not, y'know, water only being water when you're looking at it, and it's otherwise some sort of nega-water)

Yeah yeah, but we really need some special sunglasses to see the cat people, you know like the one's that Rowdy Roddy Piper had in They Live!

oh I took thread title as general "do people exist here" question rather than a question about how present you are when doing something like typing on a forum

like similar question of whether we are still actually stop existing when we go to sleep and not dreaming or anything and are brains are basically silent, if conscious soul is a actual separate thing that is, and possibly a new person just takes over every morning who is built on the existing memories and connections your brain had in place.

answer is: idk


and what if we ever invent truly alive AI tech isn't some black box that no one human understands (stuff coming out of learning AIs right now kind of is black box shit) or create organic life that we can build down to the very mood and thought level, what does that even mean for our meaning of "alive"

(again answer is: idk)

on a side note, some people (new agers) believe you are being controlled (channeled) by angels when you do some stuff that feels like you had no thought process behind it because you didn't even feel there in the moment. neuroscience has been giving some good evidence that the subconscious is a thing in some sort of way.
