HOLISTIC"Our purely numerical connectionist networks are inherently deficient in abilities to reason well; our purely symbolic logical systems are inherently deficient to represent the all-important heuristic connections between things---the uncertain, approximate, and analogical linkages that we need for making new hypotheses.
The versatility that we need can be found only in larger scale architectures that can exploit and manage the advantages of several types of representations at the same time. Then each can be used to overcome the deficiencies of the others." -Marvin Minsky
VIEWPOINT""What I am is a heretic who's recanted and thereby in everyone's eyes saved his soul. Everyone's eyes but one, who knows deep down inside that all he has saved is his skin." -Pirsig
INVENTIVE"Although human subtlety makes a variety of inventions by different means to the same end, it will never devise an invention more beautiful or more simple or more direct than does nature- because, in her inventions nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous."-Leonardo de Vinci "I believe in God, only I spell it Nature."-Frank Lloyd Wright
PRECEPT"Coach: Well, since I have your undivided attention, I will now give the answer, but are you sure you are ready for it?"-Secrets of the Cube
CLASICAL"We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all of our exploring, will be to arrive where we started. And know the place for the first time."-T.S.Elliott
