[mind] The other side of thought loops.

Or, what do you call it? "recursive thinking"? "ruminating"?

These crude human words (mouth sounds) refer to the same kind of thing, more or less. I wonder...

A thinking machine can use pseudorandom data to make novel discoveries. Probably. Explore a space of coefficients or whatever by poking around randomly? Oh, when you're ruminating about something, does it also serve as a source of "random" for your self-aware you (id, drew, whatever).

These thought loops that pop up from your "repressed" subconscious or whatever can both amplify things that are "important" (You embarrassed yourself: don't do that).

And they also serve as a source of random for your drew (or roy, whatever).

Thats my thesis, see?
