New blogpost: Vats and Propagators: towards a global brain

Largely some scifi-sounding notes to self about how to make our networks more intelligent, but figured I'd write them down in case others found it interesting.

@cwebber Thank you for taking time to share your understandings and thoughts.

@cwebber > Attempting to introduce contradictory information into the network will throw an exception.

Should it, though? The contradicting information is information nevertheless. Pass it back to your original sources and make them update themselves too. Woosh, we've got a neural networks' backpropagation.

I see how this interdict can be useful for writing solvers, but wouldn't it prevent physical instantiations, where sensoria can conflict with the memory and each other?

@dpwiz Ah, that's what truth maintenance systems are for though!
