A is in a room with B, C, and D. B, C and D are playing loud music. They feel happy about it. A is very irritated with this. Suppose A has the power to stop the music going on without asking the others or having a confrontation with them.

Should A stop the music?

I do not agree. Clearly, you wanted to know what is the moral action for A. The correct action depends on what A's choices and responsibilities are.

Suppose that room is the universe. And there are no other prequels or consequences of this event.

I am asking if stopping the music is moral.

Rather, I am showing that it is moral according to your definition and immoral according to my definition.

Mine is easier to implement on robots, yours is for humans.

Who cares what robots do or think?

You have not told me what action A took. How can you say it is moral or not?

The music or the nature of the situation is not our. topic of discussion

I'll provide a more mathematical way tomorrow so that you understand what I am saying.

I am just lying the foundations of morality theory. reality is too complicated to deal with right now. First, we will need to think of situations where the problem universe is composed of finite sets only.

Goodnight

If you put it into math I will definitely not understand it.

Have a good night.

I do not understand your video. But yoda has a bad jacket.

Does he wear rags while teaching at MIT?

I do not think Yoda would want to teach at MIT.

You had told that he does.

Today I installed and played Amnesia - The Dark Descent on Ubuntu with the discreet GPU. It is running fine.

I said Yoda went to MIT but he did not like the math there.

Very good. How is M running?

What is so good about MIT?

M is running fine. But I have not done any new problem recently. It is bad to see that CUDA does not work on Radeon.

Your sanity is dangerously low. Please avoid watching unsettling events, staying in the dark or staring at monsters.

CUDA is for Nvidia cards.

That quote is depressing in itself.

What Radeon GPU accelerated computing package for Mathematica is available?

The quote is from Amnesia.

The goal of the game is not to win but to give the player a haunted and scaring experience. They told me to play the game late at night, in a dark room. And so I did.

I only wish I could tell other people and have them believe me about the foolishness of allowing oneself to be frightened by games or movies.

Are you sayingb that it is not frightening?

Not so frightening, but it sure reduces my sanity.

It can strengthen my nerves. I will be prepared for a similar situation later.

Hahhahahahh, what kaboobly doo. If you want combat you come to America, here we fight to the death. Video games are a poor substitute for being knocked down and having 5 people kick you until you are dead.
