Affirmation

I am still here.

16K in 1hr 40min. Not so fast but good enough for me. Half-marathon this Sunday, 1 June 2008. Wish me luck.

Here are thought streams... slip-links, slip-thoughts.

We (as small groups) started out as "children" choosing mating partners.
Then we "grew up", and by that I mean we started living in larger groups.
(is group size a proxy for the group maturity/age?)
(what is the definition of group?)
(a cohesive group of individual? geography culture = language,food,relgion(recoginition of the absurd).
(more anthropology questions... Savage Minds, Open Anthropology... for you.)

We (the large group) hypothesis that mature individuals make wiser mating choices.
We implement a plan to transfer group maturity onto the individual.
The assumes that the group maturity is in fact wiser than the individual. This
is faulty logic. How can you transfer a group characteristic onto an individual who,
by definition belongs to that group. If you let the individual make their own choice,
then by definition you will reach the same result, mating selection done at the
average maturity of the group.

connection to memory mnemonics?? a connection to shared exeperience/context.
group memory.brain_architecture.how will memory evolve in group?

Sampler Feed:
AI crawl of web. Correlation? or straight AI. associates classic image with sound.music
puts up mix-media content on Homepage.
(all being done by Google and others, image algorithm, soon sound algor., host your mix-media page.

GoogIntel: the growing AI. Me=catalyst/autistic.reiterative. If I blog repeatively about
being a catalyst/ a seed for the birth of any idea/e-wareness, then will the e-w come.
like a FieldofDream. If I seed it. then It will come
If I repeat Love? seed/locus for... what? AI of humanity/compassion?


BoulderGroup: some don't like FaceBook..etc... Sharing within only.private
Hopefully, iGoogle will intergate some soon. but Goog not successful at Social.net.
that's a good thing. SmallGroup dynamics is good. Think NavySeal.
They are needed. OC they cannot win the "War/Game"


David Brin:
"Did I say conservatives display mental agility? Are they alone in the dance of polemical distraction and rationalization? Certainly the left has its crazies and troglodytes and rationalizers. Only, most of the time their theme is utter and relentless stubbornness, clinging to standard dogmas (like opposing nuclear power) long past their relevance or usefulness. In this respect, they are certainly much less interesting or entertaining!

""But back to conservatives, what I find most impressive -- even a little charming -- is their blithe unwillingness to accept that being wrong in the past has any relevance to today. Wrong about civil rights, womens’ rights and preserving the environment. Wrong about isolationism (remember Lindbergh... and then Vandenberg and Taft?) Wrong about de-funding science and wrong to have supported Saddam Hussein for decades. Wrong to have left him in power in 1991. Wrong (if not damned liars) about “weapons of mass destruction” and Iraqi terror links. Wrong about wild CEO bonuses and fantasy financial “instruments” that severed banking from any of its roots in sound lending practices.

""And yet, what’s the response? - “All of that is dwelling on the past.”
Same opinion Justice Scalia has.

Single most danger... the HUGE military/industrial complex of the US. Eisenhauser feared.
I fear. As we lose our economic leadership, maybe some creativity? prob not.
then incentive has always been to use military force to complensate. always.
this should be a missive to Obama.


Interesting note; Delong->Joe Klein.
politician pander to the "bowling", "tamale-eating" demographics. Racist?
but at heart not true either. politicians always pander to voters.
are most voters "bowling" "tamale-eating", or even"SUV"driving?

Who they are pandering to is a voter block.zB left leaning policy.a group
who, in general, don't bowl every week, don't eat so much tameles, but on principle,
believe that people who do, should be represented and not marginalize.

My Foreign Policy:
1. Stabilize the Middle East.
2. Reactivating the Israel / Palestine dialog. This should have been first (not invasion of Iraq!!!)
(Bush bashing... oh, oh, now we start going to Israel/Gaza/West Bank?)
3. Dialog with Syria, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia to push them to push the Palestinians.
4. Begin the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.
5. Turkey? Pakistan?
All said better by many, many, politicos, and militicos.

Military has stolen research ideas. Now they are a large funding source. Why not...
Stealing from Military Research.

The Paradign shift:
Instead of investing in large amounts of time.resource into "fixing" the mutant to live.beproductive in todays environment.
Why not create new, "environments" where mutants can live.beproductive, ie increase production capacity of overall-human-race?
