Hey, John. Been a while...Have you explored Taleb's idea of Antifragility? Taken from Investipedia: "A postulated antithesis to fragility where high-impact events or shocks can be beneficial. Anti-fragility is a concept developed by professor, former trader and former hedge fund manager Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Taleb coined the term "anti-fragility" because he thought the existing words used to describe the opposite of "fragility," such as "robustness," were inaccurate. Anti-fragility goes beyond robustness; it means that something does not merely withstand a shock but actually improves because of it." I think you are on to something, my man.
This is going to be one wild ride... Geriatric Command and Control holding on to the 1950's Game Theory Intelligence model like an addict being told to give up their God Smack...All supported by an aging centralized Reductionist infrastructure and an inflated Baby Boomer vote. Will we survive? Stay tuned for the next episode of "Regaining Balance in the System"!
John, First, let me say that this was awesome. The East-West description is by far the best descriptor for the paradoxical Reductionism/Holism relationship. Fun read! Did you know that when you put holistic methods into a computer they do really strange and interesting things to massive data sets? (None of the above are technical terms.) Hope you are well!
