Who Am I? posted 17 March 2009 in Philosophy DiscussionWho Am I? by Callan S., Auditor

If your familiar with programming, you might have come across the idea of self modifying code. Usually argued against by programmers cause it can go so wrong, oh so quickly.

Looking at the question and the word 'am', that's more a question of current state. A certain set up. But if you ARE self modifying code, then 'I' means your self modifying code.

Code that self modifies changes what it is - it's never in a fixed state.

With self modifying code, 'am' and 'I' are contradictory terms. It's like asking for a sample of non existance. view post
