8 yrs ago, I was convinced that the brain used a kind of trinary logic for a “maybe” state. But then I wondered just now to ChatGPT:
“what if the 3rd state was an embedded control system?”
If the third state in trinary logic represented an embedded control system, it would likely be used to regulate and coordinate the other two states in order to achieve a specific goal or outcome. This could include monitoring and adjusting inputs and outputs, making real-time decisions based on incoming data, and adjusting parameters to optimize performance. The embedded control system would likely use algorithms and feedback mechanisms to constantly monitor and adjust the system’s performance in order to achieve the desired outcome. This could be similar to how a control system in motor coordination regulates and adjusts the timing and execution of movements to achieve a desired outcome such as hitting a target or playing a musical phrase.
