Apollo 11: Cold War Victory

Icons: System States

I had a very interesting discussion regarding Aristotlean Drama, Linear Programming and Transactional Analysis today and it lead me to reevaluate my own thoughts on these concepts.

First I reevaluated my thoughts on States:

states-aristotle-drama

states-linear-program

states-transact-analysis

Aristotlean Drama is simple because it only involves the state of one character following a linear path.

However, when you begin to think about the outcomes for two characters the dynamic becomes tabular which brings us to game theory and the famous prisoner’s dilemma and game theory payoff matrixes:

prisoner-aristotle-diad

prisoner-linear-diad

prisoner-transact-diad

However, it immediately becomes apparent that the Prisoner’s Dilemma does not account for all of the States.

prisoner-aristotle-triad

prisoner-linear-triad

prisoner-transact-triad

Here we have the States of Transactional Analysis, however this state model is not complete either.

prisoner-aristotle-pentad

prisoner-linear-pentad

prisoner-transact-pentad

Even with a pentad the States are incomplete.  This is where my epiphany came in.  There has to be a begin state and an end state.

prisoner-aristotle-heptad

prisoner-linear-heptad

prisoner-transact-heptad

Now with a heptad, we have all seven States and a complete tabular model.

However, we are learning tabular models are not adequate.  We are learning network models are necessary.  And network models require an alternate portrayal.

prisoner-linear-hex

prisoner-transact-hex

Here we have a network presentation of the seven States.  And each of these States have seven states of their own.  There is no magic here.  The correlation to the week I do not think is coincidental, but cultural, however I do not think that astronomical phenomena have any causation.

The Plurality is Near

bees-on-frame

I decided to take a leap.

There is an institute in the United States started based on the writings of futurist Ray Kurzweil regarding the advent of computer intelligence called The Singularity is Near.

The institute is called “The Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence“.

Here is The Transcendent Man:

I am going to advocate that as we approach computer singularity, we are also approaching human plurality.

More and more people are creating personal internet identities until every human being on earth will be online.

I call this human population threshold “The Plurality”.

The Plurality is Near.

Think about the implications.

I have incorporated “The Plurality Institute for Natural Perception”.

I will be setting up the website plurinst.com soon.

All it means is everyone online and thinking for themselves.

We will work to advance preparation for the impending plurality.

Anarchy: Building Business Around Life

anotherbloomindesigner

I have been having some very interesting conflicts between my business model and conventional business models these days. And the result has been an increase in my resolve to live according to my model.

I have been building my business around my life and the lives of those I choose to help in this world instead of building my life around business. The result is I am seeing the people I help making real progress in becoming independent and self-sustaining individuals with a deep concern for the welfare of those around them.

I have been called undisciplined, unprofessional, unfocused and many other things, however I realize that the real difference is my vision and mission as an individual and as a business person. I am truly putting people first and that scares the 20th century thinkers I come up against. And my life and business are both growing in a way that people want to come on board.

You look at the American economy and it is a failure.  Capitalists are in denial.  Every political concept does not deliver.  Maybe it is time for something new.

Today I read about the United We Serve initiative by President Obama and I feel I am on the right track as a servant leader and a servant business here in Canada.
