I am going to be delivering two papers at the June ISHS
conferenece: one on the role of time (not just timing) in humor
and one on a comprehensive model of the neurodynamics of humor.
The model looks pretty decent in that it actually unites most
of the existing theories and shows why they might have come
about. It is also able to answer questions about timing in humor.
What I need is someone to discuss the model with me to make
sure that I am not overlooking things before I send it in for
publication. If the model works as I think it does, then it
will open up a lot of new areas of research. The mathematics
is fairly difficult, but I can explain the model without using
math. In addition, I am building a model using realistic
neurons. If you have the right kind of computer, I can even
send you the program to play with, once it is done (I'm still
getting it in shape for the conference).
Is anyone willing to conduct a discussion by e-mail (not for
the whole list, yet, as that might be too distracting)? You
can send me an e-mail to [log in to unmask] or post a reply,
here. I am hoping to bring a working computer model to the
conference so that everyone can play with it.
