The Mind's Operating System

Digital Mind Math, or P-Adic Quantum Cognition, is a complete mathematical model of the mind and cognition—a model for the sciences of artificial intelligence, neuroscience, and cognitive psychology.

Digital Mind Math presents this by analyzing dozens of anecdotes from everyday life in order to unfold, step by step, a detailed mathematical model of the mind's organization and operation. Digital Mind Math is how we think, our evolutionarily selected route to understanding the world.

Part One of Digital Mind Math describes the basics of the Digital Mind Math model. Part Two describes p-adic mathematics. Part Three illustrates the mechanics of Digital Mind Math through numerous anecdotes from everyday life. Part Four speculates on how an obscure feature of p-adic mathematics—the converse of Hensel's Lemma—gives us the mathematics of the ideal mind, revealing the optimal way to think, to interact, and to live one's life.

More Details

The two critical components of the Digital Mind Math model are p-adic mathematics and reconfigured spacetime, both of which are central to Topological Geometrodynamics (TGD), the theory of physics that Digital Mind Math is based on. In Digital Mind Math, details are grouped to form concepts, as the mind identifies the boundaries of thoughts, which are intricately linked in real spacetime. The contents, sequences, and interconnections among thoughts are efficiently labeled using p-adic mathematics.

P-Adic Mathematics

P-adic mathematics—the mathematics of enclosure and sequencing—is our first mathematics, how we organize our world from infancy onward and the natural mathematics of cognition. Throughout Digital Mind Math, it is shown how p-adic mathematics describes the exact processes identified by cognitive development theorists such as Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky, even though they did not label their work p-adically.

Digital Mind Math's core quantum cognitive process proceeds by taking advantage of p-adic mathematics' great efficiency to model all possible next thoughts in quantum configuration space, and then select the next thought to experience by tending to maximize information content. Information content is the p-adic norm, the way that p-adic size is measured. The selected p-adically labeled thought is then experienced as mapped out by its mathematically real analog.
