As a programmer, I either feel like I’m a god and I’m superior to everyone in this company OR I am an idiot and everyone knows what they are doing except me.

Programming is an illusion. It’s just a “feeling”. Programming doesn’t exist.

    Noone not the brightest, nor the best know what they're doing. As in whatever they're doing is going to work or not? Whatever they're doing makes sense to anyone else, would impact anything else?

    @Brosyl and then use it to create software for remote nuke attack. So a Boolean could act true or false no matter what you set it.

    nothing, by definition, does not exist, so what is left is, existence.

    existence is infinite. it has no end, no beginning, and therefore, no creator.

    this universe is not existence. it is an infinitely small part of existence.

    everything is empty and meaningless. nothing has been given a meaning.

    so what is the point of living? meaning lives in the mind. you create meaning.

    as brutally true as that is, it's scary and depressing to think about it.

    @SukMikeHok some one has read to many Buddhist books ;)

    Sunyata ftw!

    You forgot to mention that consciousness and matter are co-existant rather than a product of the other.

    @irene That sounds like a perfect environment to train an AI in. I mean it would probably kill us all once it became self aware, but THINK OF THE SCIENCE!!!

    @irene I was just thinking of an AI trying to execute actions that only execute sometimes and there is no actual reason for it and having their data degrade every time they access it. A bit like real life, actually. So the AI would probably become a homicidal maniac like the rest of us.
