(very important concepts) (important piece)
[W]eber was right, in that the evolution of civilization was achieved through improvements in various kinds of ‘calculation’ – a term which will not sufficiently convey the depth of importance or meaning to the uninitiated.
CALCULATION (ability to ‘think’ and plan)
– Perception, Comparison, Decidability, and Memory
We are somewhat aware of the vast leaps in Perception, Comparison, Decidability, and Memory: that arose from Writing, Numbers and Arithmetic, Accounting, Mathematics, Calculus, and Statistics (which are different disciplines).
– Planning (production)
Those of us who learn economics understand the institutions of Money, Prices, Credit, Interest, Banking, Bonds, Stocks, Financial Insurance, and how they assist us in cooperating at vast scales.
– Evolution and Equilibria (discovery)
And some of us are aware of the vast change in human thinking that arose from the concept of evolution (self organizing). This is not limited to biological evolution (information organization in equilibria), but also to economics(information organization in equilibria), but also to the evolution of scientific knowledge (information organization in equilibria) in which knowledge is that which survives from free association, to hypothesis, to theory, and to law;
– Existence (operational naming)
And I think fewer people are aware of the vast change in human thinking that arose from the act of programming (existential necessity), and database development (existential dependency),
– Truth (removal of imagination, error, bias, wishful thinking, and deception)
and very very few of us are aware of my work in Truth (testimonial organization in equilibria) in which Truth is what survives criticism, and testimony a warranty of due diligence, not a warranty of truth itself, and ultimate truth merely the most parsimonious statement possible.
PRODUCTION OF REPRODUCTION
And some of us in familial organizations:
– State Enforced Individual Monetary Union (feminism)
– Nuclear Family, Egalitarian Nuclear
– Extended Family, Stem Family, Authoritarian Family
– Traditional Family, Communitarian Family
– Hetaeristic Monogamy
– Pairing Family, Serial Marriage
– Punaluan Family
– Consanguine Family
PRODUCTION OF ORGANIZATIONS OF PRODUCTION ITSELF
And some of us are aware of the evolution in productive organizations:
– Military Hierarchical (simple production)
– Bureaucratic Hierarchical (capital production)
– Professional (talent production)
PRODUCTION OF ORGANIZATIONS OF PRODUCING COMMONS
Some of us are aware of the vast difference in state organizations:
– Authoritarian Socialist Economy. ( Dysgenic – Minimize Holdings )
– Social Democratic Mixed Economy ( Dysgenic – maximize takings )
– Private Capitalistic Libertarian Economy (Eugenic – maximize holding)
WEAPONS OF INFLUENCE IN ORGANIZATION (reputations)
– Cooperation (ordinary cooperation in the process of production) (personal reputation in memory)
– Religion (normative promise) (demonstrated behavior) ostracization
– Law (criminal reputations) (writing and record keeping) Violence
– Credit (economic reputations) (computers) deprivation of consumption
– ‘Software Reputations’ (the most detailed yet – the internet) ???? (deprivation of relations)
DO YOU SEE THE PATTERN?
We already constitute the equivalent of a hive mind.
The problem for our collective consciousness is in reducing error.
And that error is the product of dysgenia.
