I only perceive things with my senses. If it looks and feels chair-ish and it can be potentially sat on, than it's a chair. But only because I know that they are called chairs. After all, what is an island if not an island? Or a chair, if not a chair?

Great video, but should more explicitly address emergence. Let's put it this way: does a molecule of water exist? A molecule of water consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, all bonded to each other, yes, but it also has properties that none of its constituent parts have on their own. Water is polar, but none of the atoms in water are polar in and of themselves. The polar-ness comes from the relationship between the individual atoms. In the same way, some "things" can exist that cannot be logically broken into smaller parts. It suffers from some of the same problems addressed, but is an interesting theory.

another thing would be at what point is something alive. Humans are made of flesh, bones and organs (etc) and those are made of cells (which are alive) which are made of atoms (which aren't alive). So at which point in adding atoms does a human become alive.

So 2 questions from my end: 1) only simples “exist” , therefore only simples can have an identity 2) am “i” a simple then? An simple entity that is not phyisical ? How do i identify myself as myself? And a statement from my end that i would like to ask if is a logical statment // to me a “thing” can only exist if an external observer exists, which in turn brings up the question what am “i”?

I prefer to think that reality is just elements. The name we give is just a grouping of the function of the collective atoms for purposes of communication and thinking. If the group of atoms no longer serve its function, it cannot be perceived or classified by the name because the objective of communication and thinking has not been met. It's all about human perceptions... When/if we create superintelligent AI, we would have to program it to learn human associations for things; otherwise, it would make any and all connections between anything and everything, which ruins the point of a neural network. (Without pattern recognition, it couldn't do anything.) But if we allowed it, let's say, 1,000 times as many logical connections between things as we learn and use ourselves, the AI would think much more efficiently--it would just need a better way to communicate. (I remember hearing discussions over the huge barrier in machine to human communication in the AI community.) Random thought: In a way, human-level thought is just a large number of functions that interact with each other.I don't have any experience in the creation of AI, but my thought is this: if we could break down human thought into individual functions, and apt them to interact such as ours, we could theoretically create human-level AI quite plausibly. It would inherently be able to think faster just because our neural interactivity is slower than technology is capable. We obviously could optimise it beyond human capability through giving it: 1. types of sensory inputs we don't have 2. complete symbioses to a duplicate systems 3. giving it innumerable input via the internet (possibly filtering the input through another AI to best meet defined objectives) 4. we could allow it to self-optimize at max speed. (Clearly, there's more to be brought up.)
