comment Programming Mathematica in plaintext, i.e. no formatting, non-notebook
@acheong87 you can just right-click in a Notebook and insert a Code cell, which will have standard text/formatting (same cell type as in New -> package). also check out my answer here for an example of the kinds of things you can do with a Mathematica notebook. and do try to play with Manipulate. i don't miss Vim much in Mathematica because Mathematica code is very succinct. i consider around more than 200 lines to be a large Mathematica program. you can accomplish a lot very efficiently once you get into the vibe of the language

hmm wonder why this syntax didn't occur to me. @RodLm feel free to change the accepted question

comment Automate mouse clicks with Mathematica
@RodLm for some reason i had assumed you were familiar with Java. to be clearer: the mousePress function expects an integer. mousePress(InputEvent.BUTTON1_MASK) works in Java because InputEvent.BUTTON1_MASK is an integer in Java. what you do with this knowledge is something i leave to you :)

@Liam nah i mean right-click -> Insert New Cell -> Code

comment Paste data into Mathematica with formatting
i just create a Code cell, which preserves the formatting. it'd be nice if these kinds of tricks weren't necessary though. i assume Mathematica eats the formatting primarily to delete spaces, which don't mix well with the pretty-form display

comment Resources on Mathematica and strong AI (a.k.a. AGI)
@Jagra i did peruse the article. i'll give it a serious read later, but one thing i will mention is that your brain plays an enormous number of tricks on itself. eg it's entirely possible that "consciousness" is not only an illusion, but one that is deliberately perpetrated and sustained by the brain itself. i also think the issue of creativity is much easier than it sounds, and has mainly to do with the kind of memory an individual has (eg different people are creative in different ways because they store memories in different ways). don't be too certain about anything involving intelligence!

from what i've gleaned offhandedly, it seems Lisp was used back then because people thought intelligence had something to do with logic... which is, of course, hilariously naive. Lisp being an expression language and having cultural roots in mathematics made it a good choice for logic programming. there's a chapter in one of Paul Graham's books (free online i believe) that builds a Prolog interpreter in Lisp after implementing continuations, if i recall correctly. statistical machine learning and neural networks are the closest we've come so far to "general" AI, and these are language-agnostic

by the way, you might be able to use Differences to simplify some of the code

comment How do I use Mathematica as a vector drawing program?
besides aligning things in parallel, you can vector-edit just fine with the drawing menu (Ctrl+D)

by the way, you can use the Scaled symbol like this: ImageResize[img, Scaled[2]]
