Profit and Loss Model
The profit and loss model is a very elegant, very powerful system that is responsible for nearly every invention ever created.
Within an honest economic system, which is very rare, if non-existent, the only way a company, no matter the size, can stay in business is to make a profit.
To spend money creating higher order goods from either lower order goods or raw materials and then selling them to people who voluntarily buy them for more money than they cost to make.
Rock Scissor Paper
I saw this video on YouTube about a robot that can win every game of rock scissor paper.
Of course, it wins by cheating, it can see the shape of your hand as it is unfolding, and it quickly creates a winning hand.
But because it does so so quickly, it appears to be an honest win.
Kind of a false AI based on a sleight of robot hand.
Three Critical Ingredients
If you want to learn any skill, three things are absolutely vital.
One, is you need to have an honest feedback system, giving you positive feedback when you are successful, negative feedback when you are unsuccessful.
Two, is you need to have a proper ration between the different kinds of feedback.
The ratio has to enhance learning, but it also has to be sustainable.
Three, you need to have a good idea of what you will do with the skill, and as you imagine that future good in the present, that imagined future good will give you enough desire to maintain the practice.
I saw an interesting lecture the other day in this wellness center.
The guy was talking about a new theory of reincarnation.
His theory is that the spiritual side of the universe is infinitely more complex than the biological side.
Two Sides Intertwined With Complexity
That often, our spiritual sides are eager to get back to our physical sides.
But through his research, he’s discovered that we oscillate through our normal reincarnation cycle.
Each time we become physical beings, we are either higher life forms, or lower life forms.
Human Animal Oscillations
Which means every human that is alive today was an animal in their past life.
And every non-human living organism that is alive today was a human in their past life.
At first, it doesn’t seem like the numbers match.
Inner Mental Distortions
But he said that our view of time from inside our biological minds are very distorted, and the total number of life forms is far more complex that we can see from this perspective.
The type of personality you have now is based on the kind of animal, and the kind of animal life you had before this.
They are still doing research, but it’s not as simple as learning lessons in one life and carrying them on to another life.
As far as they can tell, there are cycles, and you find yourself in either a virtuous or vicious cycle, but it’s not nearly as much in our control as we tend to believe.
Their research suggests that the human-animal oscillations are bound by multi-variable, partial differential equations, and therefore chaos theory, but even that might be an over simplification.
But he did say there is enough evidence to suggest that our past live memories can span up to three previous iterations.
So if you do find a decent past life regression hypnotist, you can regress back beyond your previous animal life, and step steps back into your most recent human life.
Be Careful Of Stray Memories
But he cautioned against giving any meaning to any experiences you may find.
The relationship between experiences of two lifetimes ago to the experience in this lifetime are still largely unknown.
They have some degree of interdependency, but they also may just be tangentially related.
To infer any learnings may lead to diverting assumptions.
Don’t Divert Assumptions
And if you divert too many assumptions, you might miss some important ones.
And missing assumptions can lead to unfortunate results.
Results which may play out too many steps into the future to predict.
The biggest problem people have is trying to do too much too soon.
Yo Yo Effect
This will cause an imbalance between the three.
But going slowly, and making sure to take time to build up the present value of the imagined future skill will keep the three variables in the right ration.
Some believe that most AI is based on misdirection, and other human biases.
Kind of like how it’s very easy to anthropomorphize your pets, or even your toaster, it’s too easy to do the same for a robot.
Even though robots programmed to give positive feedback have been shown to improve learning, all robots are tightly bound within the constraints of their programming.
Positive Money Feedback
If you spend your money on raw materials, and nobody buys it, that is a signal from society in general that nobody wants it, at least at that price.
On the other hand, if you spend your money to make something, and everybody buys it, that’s a signal that you are making something that society values.
So, despite modern beliefs otherwise, in a non-corrupt and fair society, the only way to make money is to first focus on what other people want.
Because in non-corrupt, free market society, the only way to make money is to first focus on what other people want.
Free Market Magic
This is the driving force of all inventions.
And interestingly, this kind of overlapping selfishness is the same basic principle that drives co-evolution between species.
Like bees and flowers.
Or humans and domesticated animals.
And under best case scenarios, humans and humans.
