More arguments for alternate realities

 In Hume's bundle theory objects/things are simply collections of properties and relationships. But properties may depend upon the observer. In relativity theory mass, color, length, and duration, for instance, depend upon the relative motion of the observer so different observers will not experience identical realities. Andrea Oldofredi also argues for this* in Rovelli's relational interpretation of quantum mechanics where "...the notion of an absolute, unique reality is abolished."

 Perhaps the biggest constraint on me is a shortage of lab and office space. To simplify prototyping with the Raspberry Pi I frequently make use of a Pi-Top [3]. I have now bought an Agilo Research "Evive" in order to simplify prototyping with Arduinos.*

* I also have several Arduino simulators.

Human level intelligence

 It has been suggested that learning by being told in a natural language may be what makes human intelligence unique.* A.s.a. H. has done this for some time now.** One early example was A.s.a. learning "Obstacle, slow down, turn left." A.s.a. hears/reads this sentence and does what its been told.** A.s.a. also uses natural language to report back to me things that it has learned.

Another drone

 I am hacking the Odyssey "Turbo Runner" in order to give the A.s.a. H. society of agents another flyer. The Turbo Runner is also encaged and is smaller than the DSstyles "Sky Walker" that I have used previously.*

2020 election

 There is no excuse for anyone voting for crazy Donald. The fact that he was ever elected is just further evidence that humans have a poor value system. It is important that the A.s.a. AI has a better value system than humans have.
