UK State of the State session in Parliament:
You know, reading this article, the obvious finally hit me about why indirection and active misdirection and outright lies & propaganda are still universally tolerated in aggregate politics. It's not a bug ... it's still a feature.
"Policy formation for aggregates will forever require the active pursuit of short-cuts and active mis-direction (lies), in a never-ending struggle to ... gracefully ... accelerate the always-emerging steps of re-organization in rapidly evolving aggregates." Me.One aggregate step forwards, one staggeringly long polynomial series of adjustments ... just to maintain - let alone increase - agility, in an aggregate that is always expanding as well as evolving.
It's funny how trivial this is ..... and not funny how deeply such an obvious topic is skirted in the training programs for all "system-science" disciplines.
Going further, most data is meaningless even TO context.Plus, some data relevant to last context is irrelevant to the next, and vice versa.
Hence, over time, progressively greater amounts of extant data are INCREASINGLY MEANINGLESS to the subsequent cascade of contexts.
So what IS the actual relevance of the scientific method? What is its adaptive PURPOSE?
So-called "advancement" in every discipline is actually a stubborn exercise in form over function, ...
... even as the overwhelming majority of aggregate "value" comes from making & tweaking frankenstein hybrids from already existing data & components.
"how do we coordinate current & emerging knowledge in each discipline, with current & emerging knowledge in all disciplines?"Without such continuous re-modeling of changing FULL context, we continue accumulating meaningless data - minus changing context! Forget our economic Output Gap, our Cultural Context Gap represents a far deeper gap between us and our potential Adaptive Rate.
Our Cultural Context Gap represents the greatest gap between us and our potential Adaptive Rate.
Perhaps because most faculty couldn't survive doing as poor a job as they presently do?
Science Faculty: "Students, our honored task is to examine every phenomenon except the recombinant elephant in the room. To this axiom, we shall forever hold true. Honesty shall be our guide." [Doh!]
It seems that the Erbles are in secret league with all sheltered Luddites, in all disciplines. How do you say "guanxi" in every discipline-specific jargon, in every language?
"Science which is not taught naked of all taboos is the greatest fraud of all. For then the very application of reason is hidden - from day 1- behind the recombinant taboo of the day. That is a mockery of the scientific method at it's most fundamental core ... when we pretend to practice science, while lying to ourselves from the start, about net adaptive relevance." Me.Scientific form over function. Selling out from the start. Usually by systematically ignoring dynamic or "recombinant value" while over-valuing static value. That's just phenotypic persistence writ large.
Every day, every generation and every context, we can't see our novel, emerging aggregate for the current components!Nor our expanding, aggregate options worth exploring.
Our social parasites don't need to even try to baffle people with bullshit, when aggregates willingly co-opt themselves coming out of the gate.
