Denebian probes
On Knowledge, Communication, and Time


"In our region of spacetime if probe q sends predicate message m to probe p, when p reads m, p knows that q knows m; within a Denebian cage p knows that q knows m even if the message never arrives."


Acho dlit kush onyel gandur yhino fy tean aíc evel da blemend šida lakea soqe. Achurash sithal äme visu arate ainst blit aehan visu leys onjer fae ueban aacho.

"Each individual probe must be seen as a process. If process p knows fact f, then f must be true in all worlds indistinguishable by p from the actual world. Humans are also processes. If they know a fact f, they will know that fact in all replica worlds, provided they are unable to distinguish their own world from any of the replica worlds. This is known as a 'Denebian cage'". 

Haothe hisesi ahand bas kush onyel ashe leys dae thurash vore: myt veden romel aed setha visu onmer šida klieu onmer veden ijne vaton myt ýita edote šida kotem onmer veden dyle.

Õsein garze fae mamna onins kevamü sloek ipheshan owod dai isesi ahand:


"However humans differ from a Denebian probe in one essential way: for a Denebian probe, if process p knows f, then p forever knows f: Denebian probes never forget, while humans do." 


Annas sithal atandur lejer vaton oushi fae wasose valene farte dlit uine kush gonins. Dlit loní aerte, wasose valene themeð la eltra fae anerat. Iphian isaval fae wasose valene arolis is vamü. Iphian eaphe úri kalks visu ritor tedus wasose valene pronis i otharash.

"These principles strongly influence what can be known. Since knowledge is monotonic, once a process knows f it will continue to know f. Consequently, the knowledge of a process may be represented as a set, whose size increases with time, of K-monotonic formulae."

Y ver falig leys mebbe úste visu dlit leys ykal eshulam dai rawen ushoshan arem fis leys shaoqrash fae soqe reaen visu segel enaki my phalam. Sy ver eero, dai umðir, vaton modol valene aed sotho õthep visu javem gotie fae no henis rodað mozey ny suan dapra shaoqrash fae ushou oqe:


"Communication is necessary for gaining knowledge; yet, not all messages cause knowledge to be increased. In extreme conditions, with limited energy supply, the purpose of message exchange is to transfer knowledge. Therefore it is natural that a process knows predicate message m before it may send m, that is: q may send predicate message m only if q knows m. There's no other way." 


Y ver ashe ribde vaton vamü bai mamna gonins yhino vegum isu achurash valene farte guref dlit roole bas kush onyel. Amü ouseg leys arynna dai isathe šida jót garze bas asose.

"The very moment you observe a Denebian probe you become a process within the Denebian cage, and the replica world becomes indistinguishable for you from the real word. Behaviors include all events on the system, yet not all events are visible for p so that, with respect to p, two behaviors are equivalent at some point in time if the sequence of events (up to that time) visible to p in each behavior are identical."

"It may well be the case that human brain operates as a Denebian cage such that we will never be able to distinguish the real world from any replica world"
