What Chaos Theory And Determinism Have To Do With Infinite And The Scale Of A Universe?

I don’t pretend to know much about Chaos Theory, and what I’ve learned more of it is from the documentary “The Secret Life of Chaos” (2017) directed by Nic Stacey.  From this documentary I learned of the people like Alan Turing whose lifeworks had big impact on how we perceive of Chaos Theory today.  Before I even knew about Chaos Theory and the definition of deterministic system of a philosophical doctrine, I have had thoughts of my own in regarding to things that can be counted within both observable and unobservable universes.  By reading a bit into Chaos Theory and the definition of deterministic system, I’ve come to a realization that Chaos Theory and deterministic system together as a unit which resembles a perfect marriage.

When you think of Chaos Theory, you think of simple elements that can be counted yet these elements have the potential of creating unpredictable combination in nature and elsewhere.  For an example, if you take a look at a huge tree with many branches, the whole tree does look like a complex pattern, but if you take a closer look at the tree the elements can be break down into very simple similar patterns.  Nonetheless, the branches on the tree are unpredictably formed in countless simple patterns that together they make the tree to be a more complex feature.  The predictability in the picture of a tree which forms by unpredictable patterns of branches is the tree and branches themselves.  This is the side of deterministic system.

Without a brain like a human being, yet the branches on the tree know how to self-organized into similar branches with different patterns to form a predictable outcome as a tree.  Chaos Theory suggests that most things in nature can be simple and unpredictable yet self-organized to form predictable features, thus nature isn’t like a clockwork machine in which the gears would always be turned in the same directions.  Hint this is why I realized Chaos Theory and deterministic system together as a perfect marriage.  For your information, people are using Chaos Theory to study human’s heart, animal skins’ patterns, weathers, and whatnot.

My own thoughts now come into the mix in regarding to all of this.  I have always thought of both observable and unobservable universes can be broken down into elements that can be counted and summed it all up.  What do I mean by this?  If we can think of 1 + 1 equal 2, then we can think of every element in the universe can be thrown onto a scale for weighing and summation.  Nonetheless, I also do think these elements in each of themselves have behaviors and features that create potential for probable outcomes.  Thus I think we can count up all elements within the universe if we can be sure of all the potentials and probabilities there are within a universe.  We must also remember that each element can combine with another and many others to form new elements, thus the potentials and probabilities like these must be accounted for within the equation too.

I may have misunderstood in one aspect of Chaos Theory is that I think Chaos Theory suggests that the unpredictability side of things cannot be accounted for in any math, but the potentials and probabilities are there for the unpredictability to become predictability once the whole picture is formed.  For me, I think it’s absurd that the potentials and the probabilities within the universe are endless and infinite.  I think if the universe is truly endless and infinite, then why not earth in the first place be just it and the sun, stars, and everything else shouldn’t be existed in the first place.  I think we can agree on that if we have a powerful enough machine we could sum up all elements within planet earth to eventually have them weigh on a single scale to come up with an exact number of how much earth is made of right?  I think the universe is in this manner too.

If what I’ve been stated thus far are all true, should infinite be a number which we can weigh?

Thus, I think the potentials and probabilities of what exist cannot be endless and limitless, and here is where I determine that if we have a powerful enough machine we can too put a universe on a scale for weighing.  Furthermore, since the potentials and probabilities are not infinite, so there must be other universes out there.  Since the potentials and probabilities are capable to form within our imagination — I think Chaos Theory should agree with me that human conscious is the byproduct of the potentials and the probabilities of the system we’re in — I think our imagination of limited universe is too within the potentials and probabilities of the system.  Otherwise, our imagination wouldn’t allow us to imagine the universe is limited.  Here is what I think next, there shouldn’t be a law that limits the shape and size of a universe unless the potentials and probabilities of such are not existed.  Who say earth is round and the universe cannot be square?  Perhaps, another universe is square and ours is in a very weird shape which we have no word to describe such a shape.

Can basic income and good karma/credit system provide a way to cope with AI’s automation?

In 2017, a lot people and various parts of different countries are talking and experimenting with basic income.  Automation — comes naturally and intelligently through artificial intelligence — is the new thing that has gotten people worried.  Some people argue that AI’s automation will replace human beings with robots/programs in all sorts of jobs.  Dumb automation probably has already replaced humans in many cumbersome, repetitive jobs/functions.  Intelligent machines/programs through AI can probably replace many white collar jobs already.  When too many people are out of work, this could become a huge bother for many powerful people who carry important positions in our society.  Displaced people would want to be able to survive and strive in a society in which they’re no longer productive, but this could mean standing up against the factory owners, corporations, and even the governments.  If not careful, a world of full automation could mean a bloody revolution.  Thus, basic income becomes an urgent question for many leaders in any country in our time.

Nonetheless, in the West, we have a thing that was being taught since the fall of Soviet Union is that communism has failed utterly.  We look at China as if Chinese communistic society is the new capitalist society.  How can basic income fit into a Western society in which communism has been taught to be disgusted upon?  After all, basic income is about rationing, splitting equal income for everyone in a single society.  Isn’t communism is also about rationing and splitting equal things for a community, a society, and in biggest case a country?  I guess, we could argue a mix of basic income with capitalistic values won’t lead to new communism, but it could morph into an entirely different beast.  I guess we should ask, can a strong supportive basic income be an uplifting element for the despondent citizens?  I guess we should consider the humming capitalistic tunes of the middle class in this situation.  Can basic income give the despondent ones a chance to reach the middle and eventually the upper classes within this beastly creation?

Perhaps, basic income may not be the only solution.  Perhaps, we require many more parts of a larger, more creative solution in order for us to tackle the AI’s automation revolution.  Imagine in a society in which doing good things promotes good karma, and this karma translates into real monetary credits.  Can this route take us to a Nirvana?  Basic income to support a crumpling foundation, and on the top of this reparable foundation we decorate it with good karma.  The double edge sword of a good karma/credit system is that the implementation of punishments, punishing the good people who have bad karma/credits.  Then the question should be asked such as what could be the punishments for the people who have bad karma/credits?  This won’t be a good thing if new harsh punishments are there to wreck havoc in lives of good citizens.  It could literally lead to a society in which looks very much like a Nazi one.  Perhaps, karma/credit system should be used for the implementation of a positive, credit/monetary system only and not much more, and no punishment should come along with this very system.  This way, good folks won’t be affected by stupid punishments.  Just imagine good karma/credit system provides even more basic income on the top of the basic income?

I couldn’t let this go. Imagine a society in which isn’t too different from a fantastical Star Trek’s one, because a replicator alone could conjure any item out of the thin air.  Perhaps, a replicator could replace basic income and money and credits altogether?  If such a society and technology exist, this could mean the end of being desperate in a more intelligent universe.  Perhaps, if this to occur, people won’t have the need for ancient money/credit system, because a replicator alone could conjure up anything.  It’s magical.  Anyhow, the summation of all is that an interesting time is upon us, and AI’s automation may be replacing us humans in all sorts of jobs.  The old system isn’t providing an answer to how to create new jobs in an AI universe.  A jobless society would be very different in nature, because people need money to survive.  Without providing jobs to a hungry population, a society could face an upheaval of all sorts.  Can basic income and good karma/credit system provide a way to cope with AI’s automation?

Do You Like Hyper Reality?

Check out an awesome video on how hyper reality could become something in which we all will hook into in the near future.  Of course, it’s possible for us to not hook into such augmented reality at all, because we have a choice of not wearing such accessories that allow hyper reality activities.  All bets are off if they come up with implants that would allow you to easily install and remove from your body.  It would be funny that even in your sleep they bombard you with annoying ads.  Anyhow, check out the hyper reality in the video right after the break.
