To Program a Robot

Dr. Robert Duncan-Enzmann

I begin with language because this can be done on current, relatively inexpensive computers. Once the robot is programmed with the ability to converse, it will be reasonably easy to “give it a body.” The logically speaking robot is programmed as follows:

I Know You: With voice recognition program. Your mother said; left a message; wants me to tell you.

Counting: The program can assign numbers to any parameter it can measure or even imagine. It keeps them in a catalog.

Abstraction: In this program, abstraction, at the simplest level, is no more than assigning numbers to sensory inputs.

Note: the sensors will have dynamic ranges with upper limits and lower limits. Over the dynamic ranges, the sensors will have the ability to resolve.  Dynamic range compares with the length of a ruler. Resolution compares with the total number of the finest divisions along the ruler.

Past, Present, Future. The program has an internal clock. It knows that this clock must be referenced to outside periodic events, and clocks such as Solar Years, Lunar Months, Planetary cycles, clocks maintained by mankind, methods of keeping time dates, eras, eons, as used by mankind.

The program can only know time as a sequence of events.

Clocking: Most simply, the program measures the passage of time, and from this, it derives rates of change; when you were, you are, when you are.

Rates of too slow, just right, too fast, together with programmed parameters, tell the robot what it can be cognizant of and what it can be aware of. It knows clocking can be both accomplished and abstracted at rates in excess of its ability to compute. It knows estimates of time’s passage of events that are so slow they relate to orders outside its own such geological time. It carries a simplified catalog of Morphological orders in which time’s rates of change are listed.

Self and non-self: I am here. You are there.

Maps: Distance is measured in Cartesian or other coordinates, like a sketch of the child’s house, yard, or neighborhood. City, country, and world are roughly cataloged.

Prepositions: Up, on, above, higher.

Parametric-prepositions: Lower, low. High, higher, highest, highest of all, impossibly high.

Cardinals: Physical parts of the body. Household items such as cup, saucer, knife, fork spoon. Furniture, like chair, table, bed, stove, television, desk. Parts of a building such as a roof, walls, floor, windows.

Dynamic Cardination

This view of bio-physical homeostasis, biological awareness, biological memory-and-cognizance, biological sensor-effector-loops, logical actions-and-reactions, and finally, human language is based on Dynamic Cardination.

Dynamic Cardination is defined as a series of images. For example, images of a bat swung to hit a ball, and then that ball moving off from the bat, or of a person walking. The brain carries basic static images; these then move and change.

Organic logic is an ability in real-time to relate changing cardinals to each other.

Speech is an acoustic abstract representation of cardinal images changing with time, carried in brains.

Reading is a secondary abstract representation of language, which requires a complex brain and enormous memory.


Cortex ordination – by measuring: distance, time, size, counting.

Numbers quantify all-inclusively concerns according to a standard measurement: XYZ-dimensions, t-time, and vectors that have magnitude and direction but which are neither dimensions nor time. Measurement is referenced to common and universal (hopefully fundamental physical) standards known to observers and those the observer communicates with and (hopefully) repeatable by any entity, in any environment, at any relative velocity.

Note: Some autistics show extraordinary abilities to calculate.  Does this indicate that there is a time of life, a time during growth and development, when it is as easy to learn mental arithmetic as it is to learn languages? Is there an Ordinal-matrix waiting to be converted into a sparse matrix – perhaps one that will be lost in nothingness if not used?

Ordinal Metrics – X, Y, Z coordinates ‘numbered-together.’ Planar X, Y coordinates were used by Homo Erectus ca. 320,000 years ago. Spherical coordinates were used during the Bolling ca. 12,000 BC and earlier. Ca. 3200 BC rectangular coordinates in Egypt’s hieroglyphic hesp is a grid, standing for district. Ca. 400 BC, spherical coordinates are used by Greeks with Plato’s latitude and Meko’s longitude. Ca.700 AD, Christian dogma proclaims the Earth is flat and Palestine the inertial center of the Universe.

Time is a Sequence of Events                              

In this work, we hold that: Time is only knowable as a sequence of events.

The writer views the insights of Greek Mythology as vastly echoing order and knowledge, dating back to at least 12,500 BC, as the same with modern physics. In perfect chaos, in volumes of great voids where nothing coherent exists, where there is no light, no elementary matter, no particles, where no fields or forces are expressed – it is here perfect chaos is most closely approached.

The writer contends that background radiation is convoluted of chaos at random, then expelled by chaos toward the galactic tapestry. Only where coherences exist can events be sequenced. Therefore Chronos (time) is born of Chaos.

Time is not a geometric dimension. A vector has magnitude and direction. A vector, though it has direction, is not a physical dimension.  Time is not a physical dimension. It can be surjectively (onto-mapped) as a physical dimension by omitting observables. It cannot be bijectivity (one-to-one-onto) mapped as a physical dimension. When this is attempted, impossibilities, euphemistically called singularities, appear in the description.

Absolute Time

Space’s inertial reaction is a function of aether particle momentum and numbers of incoherent aether increments impinging on QMs of a coherent structure per unit of time. The rigidity of inertial space’s reaction causes electrons to spin at a fixed rate. The rate is ideally at a maximum for an isolated electron in the center of a great void.

Past and future are unambiguous. For example, a photon approaching the limb of a dense neutron or hyperon star might be blue-shifted by 10% such that its momentum would be 110R of its original on reaching perihelion. Then receding from the star, it would be blue-shifted 10%; so that at a great distance, its energy would be 99% of its original approach energy.

It is claimed that processes can be run backward in the realm of quanta, and observers would not be able to tell the difference between past and future. This is wrong. Transfer red shift unambiguously distinguishes past from future.  Additionally, in simple language, CTP ‘violations’ say Positive/Negative, Left/Right, Past/Future are unambiguous. This is also called ‘Symmetry breaking.’

We model symmetry (ambiguity) as an approximation valid within parameters and ‘broken’ at parametric boundaries. We model an Aether, QMs, and a single force reaction as sufficient to describe all current observations of the real universe.

Clocks and Clocking are different. Intervals of perhaps 10-15 to 10-27 seconds are measured but not clocked. However, clocks continually improve; clocking at higher and higher resolutions continues.
