I welcome advice: Object tracking on webcam windows 7. Need values of x and y co-ordinates on the fly, again and again. Things like Tracker and Kinovea are OK for videos only AFAIK. Had no hope so far with Gazeboard etc either. Probably there is something simple out there. Ultimately for use with Kalman filters.

Stages of Faith VI - Empathy and Virtual Reality: A comment on Chalmers' Views

Conceptual analysis is applied to 'John's Lemma' to deal with consciousness, virtual reality, and mirror neurons. Certainly there is no need to use panpsychism or anything so complicated to describe consciousness. A mathematical model is developed for use with "Stages of Faith", and basic experiments are discussed..

Stages of Faith III
Abstract
It is shown that persons can reasonably have faith, and believe or disbelieve in a God or Gods. The philosophical labels which may be needed to further any such enquiry are explicated and methodologies are outlined. It is pointed out that it may require more than existing science to reach the goals specified here and a method is given to combine and use both realist and relativist perspectives in the study.

Stages of Faith II  

Abstract

This follows the methods outlined in "Stages of Faith I" and builds on them in further detail. We have a plethora of goodies: Google's DeepMind and AI, AGI, Singularity (Technological and otherwise), Gettier Effects, variations on Wild-Divine such as Nevermind, Playmancer, many other Brain and Mind Trainers , and Chromatography as a useful root metaphor. By the conclusion we are even considering Transcendental Meditation possibilities and Yogic Flying.

Abstract: The ideomotor effect has been shown to move objects using conscious will power. A further attempt to find God can then be accomplished. Some of the problems may be solved, using Kalman filtering or relatively similar methods. Mentally induced levitation would be an interesting result and could even be a step further towards a clear demonstration of Astral Projection. Kalman filters could almost certainly help to induce further non levitating results.

Further details follow in blog here: http://ttjohn.blogspot.in/2016/09/when-i-went-to-work-this-bloomin-day-on.html
