Destructing oleg, cakeboy strikes back!!!
When trying to refute an argument or try to show the argument is nonsense, first you have to understand the argument and then you have to understand the context of the argument.
The almighty scientist oleg tried to show my argument is nonsense and it is obvious that he doesn’t understand neither the argument nor the context.
So let me explain-
The causal tie between an artifact and its intended character -- or, strictly speaking, between an artifact and its author's productive intention -- is constituted by an author's actions, that is, by his work on the object.- Artifact
It is obvious by reading my post on Measuring Information/ specified complexity, that I am talking about reproducing the ACTIONS of the designer(s) in order to get a representation of the information the designer(s) imparted onto/ into their design.
One way of figuring out how much information it contains is to figure out how (the simplest way) to make it.
Data collection and compression. (six sigma DMAIC- define, measure, analyze, improve, control)
A recipe is nothing more than a capturing of actions. The baker is the artist, the cake is the art.
What does this have to do with oleg? Oleg said:
First, I assume along with you that the amount of CSI X in a cake is determined by the number of letters in the recipe.
Seems like a real stupid assumption now doesn’t it. And it certainly ain’t what I assumed at all.
