(how it came about)

In the mid 1980’s my personal research program was in artificial intelligence – a technology that had to wait for cheaper hardware. And a technology that still has to wait for different hardware and computers altogether. In the late 1980’s I was one of the first people to automate the production of legal arguments – much to the disappointment of the legal staff. In the 1990s I spent most of my time on economics and economic history.

Causality

 

I learned to read early (phonetics), and constantly. I would wake up early and read from around four or five to six thirty or seven. I would keep a book with me at all times in case – god forbit – I had to suffer even a moment of boredom.  I wrote stories. This seemed to impress parents and teachers. But really, I was just retelling some version of fairy tales.

Nerds: People are by and large unpredictable, impulsive, emotional, illogical often ignorant creatures and most all of them, except a few adults, are for all intents and purposes, running with physical, emotional, and conceptual scissors.  And they are prone to do damage to themselves others and you if you aren’t careful with them.

–“For ordinary people, the purpose of communication is negotiation of consensus. For a nerd, the purpose of communication, is to submit your ideas to peer review”-Joscha Bach

Encyclopedias: I wasn’t sure why at the time but I read encyclopedias. All of them. Multiple times. In retrospect, books were an iffy proposition. A few were good, others were not so good and most were a waste of time and printing ink. An encyclopedia was crammed with novelties, in relatively neutral point of view, meaning free of innuendo, obscure reference, emotional loading and social and political framing. You were pretty much guaranteed to find something interesting in any volume of an encyclopedia. And the more times you read them the more they all fit together into a model of the entire history of the world.

Three wishes: When asked what I would do with three wishes as a child I knew the simple answer: I wanted to know the contents of every book in the library, a sports car, and a small brick house, and I would be happy.

Sociality: We live in the first era where being a nerd is economically beneficial. This is the best time to be a nerd in human history. And we have normalized the value of nerds over the past few decades because of it. That wasn’t the case in the sixties and seventies. It was a anti-intellectual period.

Classroom: While teachers were drilling us to hide under desks in case of a nuclear war, I was thinking to myself that this isn’t going to make any difference. It won’t even protect us from the broken glass. Confirming my nagging intuition that adults have no idea what they’re doing. But given the barbarism of children and most adults, it’s only in one’s self interest to help them by not being a problem too.

Drawing: If you learn to draw you learn to observe how fragments of the world fit together. People are made of curves, are bendy, and are quite hard to draw really, but you can learn to draw perspective, landscapes, houses, buildings, and quite accurately because mostly they consist of straight lines. If you draw enough houses you can imagine the structural composition the house is made of and then draw that instead. Just like if you want to learn to draw people you learn to draw a skeleton and then cover it with muscles, then skin, then hair. You learn to visualize the internal structures of how systems of things operate. Drafting classes only improve both your ability to draw, your understanding of how the world fits together. But perhaps more importantly, it falsifies your assumptions on one hand, and teaches you how smart other people are at engineering things like flight control systems in fighter planes.

Cardboard: With enough cardboard, glue, tape, and a boxcutter you can build almost anything mechanical. You can layer it, bend it, and work with it like tailors work with cloth. Same principle. Less flexibility. You can even make a working vending machine. You learn how to construct systems of things. You can build things with cardboard that you can’t build with clay. And you can do it quickly and cheaply.

Plumbing: if you are young and very smart you can fix things that the adults can’t – at least if you don’t ask permission and fix the problem when they aren’t looking. Also, it’s a miracle that the world works at all between kids and these adults. The adults need all the help they can get. That’s the only really good reason to behave: so that they handle all these problems and you don’t have to.

Work: I worked in my parents law, garden, and florist business starting when I was in second or third grade. Sweeping floors, watering plants, dusting things, and most importantly, loading the deliveries from the cooler (refrigerators) to the truck, and then riding with the driver, getting the flowers out of the truck, ringing bells, knocking doors, saying something positive with a smile, and a little too frequently running from dogs. Holidays meant that I would make money of my own. I saved it in glass jars next to my bed, and a savings account at the local bank.

Electronics: If you do little jobs for people you can make enough money to buy and build every electronics kit in radio shack. you learn that soldering requires the same kind of patience as glueing plastic models, and model rockets together. You learn that electronics and plumbing work pretty much by the same rules just at different rates of speed. It’s just a difference in scale.

Induction: A debate with a teacher over induction vs deduction. I said all of these cases we call induction are just deduction with guesswork, but none of these statements are certain – they’re just guesses. I leave this conversation thinking I don’t understand something. I read on the problem of induction and of course, realize that it’s not me that has the problem.

Transcendence: I read a story titled ”Evensong”. In this story god is being chased across th universe, and captured by man, and he is captured by stumbling upon earth – which man has converted into a sanctuary:  a garden of eden. How would a god that old think?

Time: I read another a story titled ‘oh stars won’t you hide me’. It’s about the last human fleeing at very close to the speed of light, followed by an alien race that exteriminated humans. The dialog is between him, his computer, and the aliens. The man keeps running even though there is no hope for him or man – but lives until the universe ends.  How do we defeat eternity if only by outliving it? How would we think after so many millions of years?

Lifetimes: I read another story titled “the last command”. It’s about the AI in a tank, that after a war, was irradiated then buried under layers of concrete. Construction above or nearby jolts it awake, and despite having very little power, it tries to continue it’s mission. The dialog is between the AI, and an old man that fought along side these tanks.  Can we create an AI that is as moral, loyal, and dedicated as we wish all men to be? If it could live for centuries how would it think?

Mistake: Professors from both the literature and philosophy departments asked me to transfer to their departments and change my major. I was too obsessed with the sciences to take this invitation seriously, and I had no idea how important such an invitation can be for one’s academic success and career. I had no one to advise me. And I found the entire academic system to be almost cultish in specialization,  highly politicized, and the graduate programs a kind of serfdom, and an expensive serfdom you paid for with debt and lost income opportunity. The reality is that people on the spectrum mature more slowly and I lacked the development, experience, and skills to make use of or even recognize academic opportunity. For most of my life I’ve heard the same cognitive dissonance: “You belong teaching in a university” from the business community, or “you belong in business and politics” from academics.  What these two apparently conflicting statements are mistaken. They mean that business adapts and favors competition but only within the limits of the customers, management and staff.

Chastizement: I wrote a sort of adventure game. Technically speaking the computer lab was meant to be used for school work. School work was tedious boring and lacking in any creativity – it was an act of producing a measurement of the irrelevant: what the professor could test. This game taught me how difficult it was to make an unpredictable and evolutionary experience – and the counter-intuitive difficulty in just creating randomness. Determnistic patterns would emerge no matter what I did. This insight would stick with me as strongly as my intuitions on induction and mathematics. I was working on this game late one afternoon, when most of the terminals were busy, when a group of administrative folks walked in, showed me a printout, and the vast majority of computer time by all students was being spent playing my game. They told me they would prohibit and delete the game. The a couple of semesters later I found that it was still being played regularly and that one of the administration’s new professors claimed he wrote it. Surprised me, but then again, status capture is a common human behavior.

Ogres: In the late 197o’s a small board game company published a wargame called Ogre. In this game many small military units at one end of the map, would try to stop one large super-tank – by analogy, a land-based battleship – from reaching the other side of the map. I thought, “How could I write an artificial intelligence for tanks, and how would those tanks think?” For all intents and purposes my private research program focused on this question, and if I wasn’t working at making a living, I spent nearly every waking moment on this question.  I had a few painful frustrations (insights): any mathematical function used to generate behavior, produced increasingly deterministic predictable results, and not all possible results(sequences of actions) could be expressed by a mathematical function. In other words ‘everything interesting (innovation) happens at the margins (uncommon cases)’. Or better yet, many solutions cannot be generalized without losing the opportunity for innovation and adaptation. We can compensate by randomness, but we can’t make an AI smarter with randomness as a substitute. It needs instead to increase the predictive opportunities.

Artificial Minds: All creatures that we know of evolved a very simple hierarchy of functions all of which depend on changing some biochemistry in order to maintain or change internl state (homeostasis). From that point we evolve to physically move in order to increase caloric consumption, evade harm, or being consumed. To coordinate movement of muscles requires memory, with enough memory we develop categories, including body position, direction, speed, space and location, then together memory consolidates (categorizes) synchronous experiences (senses that happen at the same time) into episodes, we can generalize objects, spaces, places, locations and episodes by auto-association(intuition, prediction, imagination) with one another. With episodes can develop recursion (a state machine), and with recursion and we can evolve wayfinding (a branching state machine). And everything we intuit, think, say, and do as humans consists of variation in homeostasis plus sense perception plus auto association plus wayfinding, using more and more information from more and more sensors to create more and more episodes to predict more and more steps over longer and longer time horizons, producing more and more complex models of the world aroundus with more and more groups of neurons.

This simple process can be coded into assembly language(producing small fast code) on very early computers with limited memory and processing power at the expense of buying sensors and integrating those sensors – or producing sensory data in the absence of those sensors (just like we train neural networks today).

The code would record the before, during, and after conditions of every sensor, subsystem, system at every ‘tick’ of the game’s clock, for the past three or four seconds – or, realistically, as many seconds as would fit in memory. If the sensors, subsystem, arrangement of subsystems, or tank achieved (acquired) something of value, it would raise the weight of those sequences that contributed to the acquired value, and over time, those better sequences would rise in weight ( priority ), and worse would fall off of the stack. Successful ‘episodes’ then consist of the relations between a hierarchy of sets of sequences of observations, decisions, and actions at the sensor, subsystem, system, and tank levels of the hierarchy. Reproducing some approximation of an episode consists of sequences of actions by multiple systems. And prediction consists of searching for those sets of conditions, producing a hierarchy of episodes that achieve a goal, then replaying the best system, subsystem and tank actions that produced those favorable ends. This combination as a new sequence, and the evolutionary loop continues, as a competition of memories from moment to moment predicting or failing to predict beneficial (and not harmful) outcomes.

At least in simple terms that’s how the brain works. But it ran into any number of problems each of which provides us with some insight. First, the brain uses very sparse method storage that’s for all intents and purposes, infinite. The program that ran that simulation ran out of memory very easily. Second, the predictibv

deterministic, dumb, boring.

The indeterminacy of most decisions

The time horizon necessary for them

Most of what we consider AI today is just bayesian accounting that is capable of more complex measurements producing more categories with less bias (although often more error) than we do.

 

personality Computers

Personality Testing:  In early 1980’s my company required all management to take a course in personality profiling and to practice it by creating a card on everyone in the company we interacted with. This test varied from the Big5 and from Meyers Briggs. Big five ignores sex differences, Meyers Briggs includes sex differences. The system I learned was more concerned with conscientiousness, patience, assertiveness, and extroversion, and less with behavioral undesiralbes like neuroticism. An understanding of personality differences was one of the most useful tools I learned in life: to understand that people had natural biases that were easily categorizable, but they themselves didn’t understand, and that with that knowledge you could communicate, understand, advise, and manage them according to their needs.

Inspiration

In 1990, around the time of the Gulf War, the American Democratic Party launched its campaign to get air time for no other purpose than to repeat talking points and avoid answering questions. At the same time, the conservatives and libertarians were still unable to argue their positions in other than moral, historical, or religious language – meaning, they presumed their moral intuitions were universals among man, that these moral intuitions would somehow prevail over time, and they had no counter-argument against the left, the promises of the left, or the will to prosecute the left.

 

Conflict of Visions (problem statement)

 

Reality by Chanting, Social Construction, and The Industrialization of Lying

There hadn’t been a scientific and rational counter-revolution in Conservative political speech to match the pseudoscientific Marxist and pseudo-rational Postmodern left’s counter-revolution against science, nor the level of sophistication in the production of ideology.

Worse, the postwar movement of the marxist project from Europe to where capitalism was in fact superior for the working class, to America where capitalism could not solve the black-white divide, combined with the entry of women into the franchise and voting pool, created an exceptional opportunity that the neo-marxists intentionally exploited.  And europeans have had no counter-proposition to argue against the flood of pseudoscience, sophistry,f alse, promise, and deciet offered by those hostile to our civilization.

The left succeeded in the postwar construction of yet another foundational mythos in a repetition of the revolt against reason and law by the foundational myths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The combination of demand for, and financial incentive to, expand the education of the newly affluent working and lower-middle classes, and the new foundational myths that promised a more prosperous future as well as political power, and the quite deliberate purge of the western aristocratic, meritocratic, empirical, rule of law tradition, from the academy, actively suppressed the western aristocratic tradition.

The preservation of the eugenics of Darwin, Spencer, and Nietzsche had failed, the preservation of eugenic meritocracy had failed, and the preservation of the relationship between economics and rule of law had failed. All failed to survive the European civil wars. In the postwar period, the conservative moralism of Kirk had failed, the classical liberal appeal to rule of law by Hayek had failed. Even the classical economists who were incognizant of the difference between their classical retention of rule of law and the left’s Keynesian abandonment of rule of law in favor of rule by economic discretion – they either underestimated or were incognizant of the fact that rule of law and classical economics continued the western eugenic tradition.

Sometime in the late seventies, those of us in conservative and libertarian circles merely assumed that just as Johnson’s Great Society experiment had clearly failed, that the same collapse would occur in the rest of the world (it did), and that we merely must wait out the bankruptcy here in America, and then the left would ‘see the light’. For this reason, the use of debt to produce the military leap that would break the Russian economy’s ability to compete, was preferable and repairable, while the consequences of expanding the left’s increase in consumption would leave genetic, normative, traditional, and institutional scars on our civilization.

Timeline

Initially, my only ambition was to provide conservatives and conservative libertarians with a rational and scientific means of arguing in favor of western civilization’s strategy against secular socialist humanists and the left’s overwhelming production of propaganda, pseudoscience, sophistry, and deceit.  It was a duel in which they were painfully obviously unarmed. It was both frustrating and embarrassing.

While I had the idea in 1992, listening to the propaganda of the time, I started working hard on the problem in or around 2001.

I was confident by about 2006 that I knew the institutional solution to creating heterogeneous post-democratic polities. It didn’t take me long to solve the problem of institutions.

By 2009 I had used Haidt’s work to express all moral differences in terms of property rights. By 2014 I’d developed testimonial truth. But I got stuck when I figured out that I had to make it harder for progressives to just lie, load, frame, and overload through repetition and sheer numbers. And at that point, I had to understand ‘truth’ – and that took me quite a while (because it’s contentious) but I was able to solve it. And that led me to complete the scientific method, develop the science of testimony and decidability – And as an accidental consequence, the Wilsonian Synthesis.

The Wilsonian synthesis refers to E. O. Wilson’s prediction … ( … )

By 2015 I had developed the moral division of labor. And I spent most of 2016 on the very difficult tasks of simplification of the overall message, solving the problems of religion and literature, and refining the questions of institutions. But the past year or so has been largely an effort to simplify – to become better at speaking about these topics in a narrative voice that more people could more easily understand.

And it wasn’t until 2016 that I understood that what I’d done with Testimonialism (Truth) was to complete the Natural Law project set upon by Aristotle, the Stoics, Epicureans, and the Romans.

Challenges

I’ve drafted this book four times now.  As an anti-libertarian (libertine) reformation restoring liberty, libertarianism, and classical liberalism to its origins in rule of law. Then as the reason for the success of the European people. Then as an indictment, prosecution, and remedy for the crimes of our age. And finally as a work of law.

The Many People Involved

Every Major Intellectual Reformation Requires Three Generations.

I consider my work the final result of the movement consisting of the Hilbert, Brouwer, Bridgman, Turing, Popperian, and Hayekian programs that inherited the model of information from physics, as the Mengerians had inherited the model of calculus from mathematics and physics. They thought they were conducting a counter-revolution against the re-mystification of mathematics, physics, and especially the social and behavioral sciences. It’s to these thinkers that I am intellectually indebted.

It was the conflict between Hans Hoppe’s reduction of all social science to testable measurements by reduction to demonstrated interest; Popper’s failure to solve the problem of demarcation of science; everyone’s failure to define the scientific method; and the libertarian’s attempt to create an immoral alternative to rule of law – that together inspired a quite accidental intuition that the answer we were looking for to unite the sciences was in their disconnect.

Had these thinkers the access to my generation’s computer science, genetic science, and cognitive science revolutions, the evidence of the failure of via-positiva economics, the failure of via-positiva law, and the many failures of the left’s pseudoscience and in everything else, and as well as the failure of the right to halt them, then they would have had the advantages I did, and solved the problems in their era. So, I’m not special. I’m just the first person to see the entire pattern across the many fields, because of my place in the timeline of history.

The Religion of the Future

The Greeks, then Augustine and the Church, then Aquinas and the Scholastics,  then the British(Scottish) Enlightenment and the protestant reformation, each time synthesized european science with religion. But during the 1800’s, and the Darwinian revolution, no one emerged to reform European religion by synthesizing it with the advancement in the sciences as had Augustine and Aquinas or even Smith and Hume.

I have attempted to provide that synthesis and reformation in answer that question although no doubt, without satisfying the wants of the fundamentalists, libertarians, civic natinoalists, totalitarians, or leftists of any stripe.

Why? Because the truth is what is. What we do with the truth is politics. And it is only with the truth in politics that we can make reciprocal exchanges that benefit all.

Because the only other solution is civil war.

We Are All Products of Our Time

No sane person would intentionally set out to produce a work of this scope. Although Plato, Aristotle, Adam Smith, David Hume, Jeremy Bentham, Immanuel Kant, Friedrich Hegel, Charles Darwin, Herbert Spencer, Arnold Toynbee, Will Durant, Friedrich Hayek, and a dozen others have tried in one way or another – and so if they lack sanity then at least I am in good company. But, my journey was entirely accidental and circumstantial, and I am, like this work, more a product of our times than claiming to be possessed of any particular intention, wisdom, or genius.

Consequences

It’s a prophetic function…. deterministic. based on the science, of how this must play out. There are no other options.  We are in a crisis and it must play out in this fashion.
