      • author: Michael Levin, Thomas Doctor, Olaf Witkowski, Elizaveta Solomonova, Bill Duane, AI - ethics

      • source: https://www.mdpi.com/1099-4300/24/5/710/htm

      • summary

        • a trans-disciplinary attempt to develop a framework to deal with a diversity of emerging non-traditional intelligence from new bio-engineered species to AI based on the Buddhist conception of care and compassion for the other.
        • very thought-provoking and some of the explanations and comparisons to evolution actually help to cast a new light on old Buddhist ideas.
        • this is a trans-disciplinary paper synthesizing Buddhist concepts with evolutionary biology
    1. Let us at this point simply note that the Māra drive seems reducible to a wish to maintain the status quo (“sentient beings suffer, and they shall keep doing so!”) whereas the Bodhisattva is committed to infinite transformation.
      • comment
        • this is definitely seeing evolution through a Buddhist lens!
        • mara - maintain status quo
        • bodhisattva - infinite transformation
    2. Defined in this way, “stress” turns out to be a compelling translation of the Sanskrit term duḥkha (otherwise often rendered as “suffering”), which describes a treacherous world inhabited by restlessly craving beings.
      • for: bio-buddhism - stress, bio-buddhism, duhkha, question, question - enlightenment and stress, bio-buddhism - suffering, bio-buddhism - enlightenment
      • question
        • If enlightenment is defined as the ultimate awareness that penetrates the self-illusion, and therefore subject / object dualism is what brings peace, and the cessation of suffering due to the cessation of seeking, then how does this relate to the idea of goal-seeking, homeostatic efforts to attain a specific setpoint?
          • Do we attain the setpoint by awareness that stops the suffering in a unique way?
    3. Another feature of this vision that aligns well with Buddhist ideas is the lack of a permanent, unique, unitary Self [68]. The picture given by the evolutionary cell-biological perspective is one where a cognitive agent is seen as a self-reinforcing process (the homeostatic loop), not a thing [69,70,71].

    1. I am a software engineer, canoeist, gardener and and all-round tinkerer. I got into software because of my curiosity about how things work. I kept asking “why” until I eventually found myself doing it for a job. I love the range of work I get to do as an engineer. My work often focuses on performance improvements and coaching teams in code design choices. I value thoughtful communication that amplifies marginalized voices in the workplace.

    1. although the ocean and rainforest seem to be two different extremes of dissimilar environments, surf and turf have several similarities. One similarity that is present in both environments, yet seems counterintuitive is the fact both a reef and a rainforest are essentially nutrient desserts. Both ocean water and forest soil contain low levels of biologically relevant nutrients, and as a result, organisms have developed creative and sometimes symbiotic/mutualistic strategies to thrive in these nutrient-poor environments.

      Interesting point that there is a regime of low nutrients which enables higher diversity. I'll look for some references! Here's a Minute Earth video explaining this very well - https://youtu.be/mWVATekt4ZA

    1. When you stumble across an influencer and want to know what their deal is, your first stop will be their link-in-bio.

      This is a tautology because Instagram only allows you to include one link!

    2. Even major corporations such as Qantas Airlines, Red Bull, and the Los Angeles Clippers have started putting a Linktree in their Instagram and TikTok bios, Anthony Zaccaria, Linktree’s co-founder and chief commercial officer, told me. These companies all have expensive websites, but he said that link-in-bios have come to represent a space in between social media and websites: a regularly updated page where artists can plug their new music, airlines can promote their new flight routes, and even non-influencers can list out the TV shows they’re currently watching. While a traditional website might remain relatively static over time—an airline like Qantas, for instance, is always going to want its flight-booking tool to be front and center—a link-in-bio is a sort of ever-shifting homepage, the ideal spot for brands and influencers to house updates or tout new products.

      Who says the link in bio needs to go to a company's homepage? Why couldn't it be a custom landing page geared toward the social media site the link is placed on?

      The reasoning here is completely false.

    3. In a study done for The Atlantic, the web-analytics firm Parse.ly estimated that Linktree links account for nearly half of all the link-in-bio traffic on Instagram.

      Nearly half of all the link in bio traffic on Instagram comes from Linktree links.

    4. An explosion of companies sporting names such as Shorby, Linkin.bio, Beacons, Tab Bio, and Koji—Rockelle’s tool of choice—are giving the link-in-bio a glow-up.

      How long before the pendulum swings all the way back to the original web?

    1. IV BIM: Clase 1: Respiración Celular:suministra energía para funciones vitales, dado que la energía se convierte en una forma utilizable, la cual utiliza la célula.

      Términos: Metabolismo: Reacciones químicas para producir energía

      Reacciones anabólicas: Se construyen moléculas complejas a partir de otras simples. - absorben calor - biosintéticas (construye moléculas más complejas)

      Reacciones catabólicas: Las moléculas más complejas se vuelven las más simples (descomponen) - liberan calor - degradativas (digestión, respiración celular, se descompone para dar energía a la célula.

      Respiración celular: Proceso Catabólico, de degradación, debe tomar de su entorno nutrientes y energía, así sometiéndolos a una serie de transformaciones que constituyen las reacciones catabólicas en el interior de la célula, consiste en liberación controlada de energía para producir ATP

      Ejemplo: Proteína - aminoácidos Polisacáridos - Monosacáridos Grasas - Ácidos grasos Sucesivamente hasta que se conviertan en ATP (energía celular)

      Anaerobia: SIN presencia de oxigeno, solo ocurre en el citoplasma de la célula, ya solo involucra la glucólisis dan como producto moléculas inorgánicas (HS2, CH4, N2), se conoce también como fermentación, utilizan de aceptores de h otras sustancias inorgánicas distintas del oxigeno, las únicas células animales que hacen uso de este son las musculares, SOLO cuando no hay suficiente oxigeno, poco eficiente (solo produce 2 ATP) con fermentación láctica, hace el piruvato a lactato

      INFO IMPORTANTE: https://gyazo.com/86307dc5f3ef571cc559688f039a0976

      Aerobia: Presencia de oxigeno, este se usa como aceptor para recoger los H liberados de las oxidaciones, reduciéndolos y formando agua, lo realizan células eucariotas y procariotas.

      LOS 2 NECESITAN ATP (ADENOSIN TRI FOSFATO)

      Los tres procesos principales de la respiración celular anaeróbica: Glicolisis: destrucción de la glucosa, antes de la respiración celular, por reacciones químicas y ocurre en el citoplasma. El ciclo de Krebs cadena de transporte de electrones

    2. Levadura: forma de huevo, no puede crearse químicamente, resultado de la evolución de la naturaleza, Lowis Pasteur, los responsable de fermentación son las levaduras, la levadura es un ser vivo, la química es denominada impulsor, se realiza en modo de granja, obtiene energía de la cebada, manta, cuando lo fermenta, lo convierte en chela (cerveza).

      Cuando se sobre exige los músculos, se obtiene energía de madera ineficiente, donde el piruvato se hace ácido láctico el cual se cristaliza

      Levaduras (Saccharomyces spp) En la industria: Pan: CO2 hace crecer la masa Bebidas alcohólicas: las levaduras en la cáscara de uva inician la fermentación Creciente uso del alcohol como combustible de vehículos, Brasil es líder en esta industria .

      Fermentación: Muchos microorganismos que operan en condiciones anaeróbicas lo usan (como levaduras), de importancia ecológica, se pueden obtener antibióticos, considerado proceso ancestral para obtener energía, fue descubierto en 1857, implica la transformación de un sustrato complejo a uno simple, hongos, levaduras, etc son participantes, es poco eficiente, solo produce 2 ATP, convierte el piruvato hasta CO2, alcohol o ácido láctico

      TIPOS

      Láctica: produce lactato

      Alcohólica: se produce Etanol (alcohol) CO2, utiliza a las levadura para obtener ATP, convierte el piruvato (3C) en etanol (2C) perdiendo un carbono (C) el carbón que se pierde se convierte en (CO2), etanol y CO2 son productos de desecho de este.

    1. Most of my work has been writing computer software, but this has touched on a wide range of other areas: scientific equipment, data analysis, visualization, geological exploration, simulation of complex systems, economic modeling, maps, “big data”, trend analysis, artificial intelligence, and web software.
    2. I create interactive explanations of math and computer science topics at Red Blob Games[1]. I explore topics related to computer game development, as I’ve found that’s a rich source of motivating examples. My favorite topics are related to maps (grids, paths, procedural generation) and simulations (transportation, economics, complex systems, AI).

    1. Le vivant est un, la nature est autre. Les amalgamer pour en faire une machine système Terre est un aveuglement. En réalité, le vivant est anti-nature, il est culture. Il faut le voir comme une civilisation pour pouvoir penser écologique. Il faut donc arrêter de vouloir « restaurer la nature » (cette formule est incompréhensible) mais faire que le vivant se développe. À l’anthropocène encore plus qu’avant, son développement est notre développement !

      Pensée très intéressante mais qui me perturbe... C'est le vivant qui est UN qui rend vivable pour toutes ses expressions la terre qui est nature mais qui n'est en rien la vie... La vie est une civilisation unique qui peuple la terre...

    1. They might even hate each other; the creature who already lived loathed his own deformity, and might he not conceive a greater abhorrence for it when it came before his eyes in the female form? She also might turn with disgust from him to the superior beauty of man; she might quit him, and he be again alone, exasperated by the fresh provocation of being deserted by one of his own species.

      A lot of misogyny is radiating from these lines. Victor is implying that his female creation might be so ugly that even his male creation will be offended by her existence one he sees her. But on the other hand, what if his creation isn't her type and just abandon's him? It's interesting to see how much thought Victor puts in when it comes to making a female creation...I thought he was trying to create a new species?
