Yes he did. I suspect he did that to hide his lack of content. Sort of a proto-hipster move.

Heidegger had nothing to say and his work was published.

When that happens is contingent but its along a specific pattern of development.

There are limits to what the rational mind can process. It can't process complex systems with large amounts of dependent variables. But it's good at understanding representative samples under the proper constraints.

It's one thing to understand these limits, it's another to devalue the mind since it is a dimension of the human experience equal in value to the heart and the will.

Where your model might need less janitors, grave diggers will be in high demand. Cheers.

It works well as a cohesive piece of music. I don't know that I ever need to hear it again however.

Hey man, someone needs to clean the sewers and good sanitary conditions are just as important if not more so for society. I'm not a janitor. But I suppose from a certain point I do spend a significant portion of my work day cleaning up after other people's shit.

It depends whose pudding you're looking at and when you're looking at it. If you look at the pudding on the far side of a civilization, it will appear to have gone bad. That's just the way of things though. Evaluation is an active mental process built on top of the snap judgement simian heritage. It takes effort to continually ensure ones thoughts correspond to things they describe. I think we'll have to agree to disagree here.

Proper training in critical thinking fell out of style after the second world war as I've come to understand. It's one thing to lash out at the way our formal schools of thought are mistreated but it's entirely another thing to attack them, themselves as they are developed to maintain a correspondence between what actually happens and our thoughts.

He limited what could be real to what could be quantified. That's the supreme error undergirding modern thought.

Can you breathe virtual air?  Eat virtual food?  Drink virtual water?

Why would we design AI to depend on such things? Even humans could be bioengineered to eliminate such dependancies. Or at the very least, to significantly minimize them. The desire to continually rely upon them is pre-emptive atavism.

The problem is that your vision of the future is that it is unrealistic. The amount of concentrated energy resources that's left after 300 years of extravagance will not support the manufacture of the physical components required for artificial intelligence if we don't figure it out within decades. Not that we know what those will look like, but it's safe to assume that if they are at least as taxing as computer components are now, they won't be available in the future humanity actually has before it. There's so much more to consider in that equation.

As for reducing the humans dependency, well I suggest you sit down with an introductory biology text book to get an idea of the complexity of what you're advocating. To be frank, you need to sit down with a lot of reading because your views aren't grounded in anything but contemporary myth.
