"If we insist that there is a problem, we will need a paradox. If we insist there is solvability, we will need triviality not-closed under consciousness." ---Nathan Coppedge, solution to the P versus NP problem

"In what I call meaningful semantics, problems are what is considered the most meaningful thing. There are some simple arguments which say the meaningful semantics is superficial: because all problems amount to philosophical problems, and philosophical problems are still problems, and the un-challenged life can be equally meaningful. Therefore, the meaningful semantics may not be necessary, and if its meaning is not necessary, maybe it is not meaningful. However, if it is necessary, it may be meaningful even if it does not pose a challenge, and perhaps it can be meaningful even if it is not necessary." ---Nathan Coppedge

"All my energy comes,from a lack of problems." ---Nathan Coppedge

"What is wrong is meeting the criteria of wrong, just as what is coherent is what meets the criteria of coherent. There is nothing that says meeting criteria is either simple or impossible. The only problem is a problem, and the only solution is a solution, and so on for any other thing. In this way we can qualify our terms. Experience is a measurement, a contextualization, but it is not proven to be anything but an experience, so clearly the only coherency proven to experience is a coherent experience, and it is unfair to ask for more without changing the terms." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Actually meeting criteria may be complex, but it need not be impossible." ---Nathan Coppedge

"[O]pen system... It doesn't mean that relative to our criteria a problem is not solvable, or that our solution cannot be qualified and measured." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Rumor is: Someone smart is a snake. Someone clever tricks the snake. Someone brilliant invents the snake. Someone genius proves there is something better than the snake. And, a wise person is not tempted by the snake problem at all." ---Nathan Coppedge
