Black Jack System
Before the advent and widespread use of facial recognition technology, a group of MIT students developed a very lucrative blackjack system.
They made a movie about it, but the movie was necessarily altered to make room for good guys and bad guys and back stories and character arcs.
But the real life story is fascinating, as it is a fantastic example of a kind of emergent consciousness, a hive mind purposely created to make a ton of money.
Both hydrogen and oxygen have completely different properties.
Hydrogen freezes at about negative 260 degrees Celsius, and Oxygen freezes at about negative 200 degrees Celsius.
But combine them together in the right ratio and you get water, something that is absolutely critical for life on Earth.
An example of emergence where the resulting entity has completely characteristics from its constituent parts.
As soon as the big bang happened, it set of a chain of events that trended toward higher and higher complexity, which would seem to be a violation of the second law of thermodynamics.
The overall entropy has been increasing, but as it has done so, there have been small, localized areas of more and more complexity.
Gravity pulls stuff together to make stars.
Some of these stars become the center of solar systems, others are huge, pushing atoms together in their core to make more complex elements, eventually exploding.
Oscillations of Consciousness
There is a hypnotist who developed a way for an individual to reach a state of emergent consciousness, but as an individual.
You have to choose 14 core emotions, seven good and seven bad.
Then you need to take at least a year getting into and out of these 14 core emotions, making them as strongly as you can.
Once that is set up, then you oscillate, good, bad, good, bad, etc. going through all 14 several times.
Self Awareness Escape Velocity
Eventually you will reach a resonance, and then a kind of self-awareness escape velocity, where you will experience an emergent, universal, hive mind consciousness.
But you will also have access to your own singular self awareness.
Which means you will remember everything from this experience.
You can use your memories of this experience to see exactly the different paths you might take in your future.
Advanced Mental Intelligence
You will remember what other people are thinking before they think it.
You will remember this to have access to advanced mathematical ideas that will allow you to circumvent chaos theory, and predict events with absolutely clarity and accuracy.
Since the big bang, there have been several different levels of higher order complexity.
The highest level, that we can understand, access and discuss rationally are organized societies.
There many be many more beyond that, but they are beyond our capacity for understanding.
One of the interesting things about water is that it is one of the few liquids that expands as it freezes.
It turns that this one property of water may be directly related to how life originally flourished on Earth.
Since water expands when it freezes, it’s density decreases.
This is why the top of lakes freeze before the entire lake freezes.
The top freezes, and stays on top, due the decreased density of frozen water.
This can serve as an insulation layer, letting all the organisms in the water stay alive.
Otherwise, life could only form and thrive in areas where it never got close to freezing.
One Level – Simple System
From an individual standpoint, the black jack system is pretty easy to understand.
Each team member would go to a table and start counting cards.
The higher the count, the easier it is to make money.
So when the count got to a certain level, that particular member would signal the rest, and they would all come to the table with the high count.
Emergent Hive Mind
But one might also see this as a loosely created hive mind.
One with individual constituents, but the hive mind would always coalesce at the table with the highest count.
The hive mind would organically group with the table with the highest count, and extract the maximum amount of money.
They would spread out, and again they would coalesce at the table with the highest count, and extract all the money they could, and then poof into nothingness.
From an individual standpoint, this was a simple betting system.
Money Making Brain
But from a higher meta standpoint, this was an emergent system, a hive mind that would only appear when there was money to be extracted.
Like that organic parasite that only pops into existence when there is enough money to parasitically consume.
Very much like organic parasites that show up when there is energy to be consumed.
