Connecting Hidden Dots

"If a video is used to entice the accused to admit guilt but may be doctored by the party that makes it available online while at the same time creating the illusion of a government authority? Vendor provides equipment and services and sells it as a 'turnkey package'.

"The disclaimer is significant, the video has one that includes the statement, 'cannot be used in a court of law'. Further, the vendor of the equipment, a private out-of-state company answers the toll free phone, 'Photo Enforcement."

One could argue that there is a pattern of misleading victims. But is it racketeering?

There are many variations on the theme of evading jurisdictions. Intentionally obscure networks and lack of transparency are a rich breeding ground for abuse.

Ego, Not Ego

"Ego-management is the core issue. 

"Many suggest that ego must disappear before enlightenment can occur.

"Think for a minute how absurd that notion is if ego is defined as the best abstraction of the single most capable agent on the planet.

"If the abstraction (as defined) is true to what lies under its umbrella, it is, arguably, the best bridge to its surrounding context. Little is wasted and the transmissions both going and coming can be short and verifiable."

The question is not, "ego or not". It is "true or something less". In other words, a continuum much as entropy is in an information theory application.

Linear acceleration is, ostensibly, the most efficient way to achieve escape velocity. In the world of memes there are specific ways of achieving this ideal. Vetting efficient efficacy contributes to manageable rapid-scaling.

Subtle Bio-Mimicry

Same idea, scaled.
"Industrial strength nurturance, sounds like a contradiction in terms. Doesn't it?

"I kid you not. Coupling the atoms of systemic good is a major enabler of making better. Guess what? We don't even need to start from scratch. A fabulous working model honed over the ages has already done the heavy lifting."

She was mostly quiet until just the right thing needed expressing. Attentive patience is magical in the land of opportunity. Especially in the presence of tectonic shifts. Feeling when the earth 'first moves' takes practice.

One gender of human has a distinct advantage over the other should members of it choose to exercise The Option by 'collaborating' at the appropriate time. That choice also has a reputation of going very wrong at times too. And variations abound.

Tracking Authentic Value

Priceless of a different kind.

"If prices continue to move downward, the money supply expands, and people are paid for taking care of each other efficiently. Who loses?

"The ill-gotten wealth of hoarding property owners is diluted. Is that really a loss even to them?"

"It would force cash off the sidelines since it would be worth less as the money supply gets larger."

Testing fundamental concepts is extraordinarily speedy with a global conversation network as it stands today. The secret? Arguably, the internet has reached a critical mass of 'appropriate interconnectivity'. Interdependence is the new calculus.

"Ok, oh wise one, what would you propose as an icon of abstraction?"

"Lovers and makers of music would suggest identity (perhaps without realizing it), methinks."

Spanning the considerable distance between frontal lobes and the brain stem, one's favorite music is highly unique to the individual. The time dimension is robustly supported as well as both past and predicted behavior along it.

Detection vs. Prevention

Letting the opposition's automation penetrate is part of the plan. Watching how it attempts to disrupt yields important clues. If the penetration was thwarted, the opportunity to detect methods and the source would be diminished.

The effort described here is not just for protection from the specific threat to the team's operations but to develop effective measures against the generic threat to others.

Prevention is, in effect, in lieu of the second objective since the perpetrator can simply make up the difference in volume. The efficiencies of destructive automation preclude tactical countermeasures. They are, after all, designed to do just that.

Re-define the game by expanding the scope. Large majorities have that power when they are able to assert it with direct action. Such is the case, now.

Meme Check

"Think of it this way, we want to visualize Occupy.

"By mapping organically propagated memes, say geographically, and making them available to a large audience, we can test for various characteristics.

"For instance, meme check would take a short phrase originating on a twitter account in a town somewhere in the US. The motion 3D display would animate the expansion as the echo chain ripples outward from its intialial location ..."

"I get it. Like when someone calls out, "Mic check" at a rally. Each time it is repeated in sequence it gets louder and further from the source. Yet, each time, there is sufficient time for each in the crowd to absorb and understand what the message means."

"Precisely. Understanding the messaging mechanism would be enhanced by the ability to visualize it using the modern conversation networking technology."

It took awhile but well worth the wait. The deep meaning of identity in global networking was emerging. In the vernacular of our time, Occupy Identity.

Organic Integrity

"The fusion does not need to occur at same time and/or place in the continuum?"

"That is correct. The fusion is mandatory to complete the transaction, however."

Occupy Hope
If this were true one would assume that the system was close to 'bullet-proof'. One could consider each authentic transaction, virtual conception. The butterfly transforms one domain to the other, revealing more detail.

Real and Imaginary were fascinating labels in the same way that Dream and Awake were. Dialog identity, determined by the result, not by the plan.

In practical terms for today's applications, networked personal devices that know their users. Portable, wireless, friendly like the pets from whom we learn so much. Nurturance is synergetic.

"Now we can readily observe, many of the advanced thinkers are filling in the missing components rather than assuming the project is not ready for prime time. There is no more hesitating for fear of embarrassment. The manipulators machine for deceiving grinding down inexorably to insignificance.

Delay shipping until the product is right while keeping as much powder dry as possible. But ship. A steady supply of optimism rewarded. Cynicism is a lazy excuse.

Infrastructure In Place

"With voice and speaker recognition on one mobile platform and face recognition on the other dominant mobile platform, it won't be long before friendly personal authentication could be a standard. Networking authentication primarily for the benefit of the persons being identified may well be one of a few 'killer apps' for the new century.

"A credit union like structure is optimal, as we have argued here before. Imagine the consequences had Microsoft's $150 million equity investment in Apple been voting shares? Control should be exclusively to the 'identifyee' members as a group if it is to stay true to the "Authentic Identity Principle".

"If one were to regard homo-sapiens as a truly exceptional design, what makes it so? I suspect the capacity for authentic consensus may have something to do with it. One human alone, given safety from predators, is quite capable of thriving. Humans sufficiently in agreement are capable of steering the entirety of life in a positive direction."

Such talk is easy to pick apart with the sophisticated machines designed to do so. Why were such mechanisms designed in the first place? There are those who believe that disembodied egos suffering from guilt and insecurity are behind the short-sighted development (predation is the intent.)

"When two go "in" together, it validates the link from one conjugate domain to the other to both of them. The fundamental concept bridge is thus established."

It was like the crack of a tremendous arc had confirmed their quest had been achieved. It would have startled any observer yet neither of them flinched. They anticipated the revelation like no one else could.

Many months had passed where the sessions at the system console seemed as natural as exhaling. Yet this was a milestone of the first-order. They felt it.

"The entire connection is obscured from conscious awareness until it occurs. Authentic has no meaning with less than two. The illusion that one alone could be the case is a fundamental constraint of ego-based executives.

Meme Rules

Organic propagation of an idea. Meme's are funny that way. The normal rules of coercion do not always apply.

The civil behavior of the large group is a powerful counterpoint to the use of force by the few.

As we have seen, pay walls are beginning to marginalize the effectiveness of large sponsor driven broadcasters and publishers. Hopefully the few remaining ethical editorial departments will have some of their better content leak through said wall.

"Should we be concerned about the private contractor influence on domestic military operations?"

"Egypt, here or somewhere else?"

"Maybe, all of the above?"

Just Before The Fall

"That does not look like California."
"In many cases, the final stage of an oppressive regime is the desperate use of violence to repress the will of the people that have been systematically hurt."

From the 'outpost' the live video from around the world seems nearly surreal. And yet those who are eloquent but still in deep denial carry on as if a select audience will protect them from coming to grips with their now-failing obsession.

"Fascinating how latecomers to the meeting changed the informal and supportive initial tone. It was as if reinforcements were called in to selectively apply 'horizontal' protocol. Could it have been a somewhat justifiable suspicion of the unfamiliar demographics?"

Empire Strikes Back

"A credible whistleblower leak would blow the lid right off."

"How can we alert candidates that we are receptive to making it safe and worth their while to expose wrong doing?"

"You say, Turing. I say time domain. She says, enlightened. Another says, self-interest. If recall correctly, some credible person said, universal. And a person for whom I have a particularly high regard spoke eloquently to the common sense that is compassion.

"And all the while we are watching the latest on how grok appears to work. Use 237 link to identify."

"Reality distortion relative to what?"

Authentic/Unique digital persona could be a formidable tool in the cause of anti-corrpution. Though it is seldom expressed this way, one could say it is a very friendly function (if it spans the population) that deserves consideration at the very top of organizational frameworks.

This log, in part, attempts to elevate the concept of scalable altruism to a level of awareness where the confluence of free enterprise and universal compassion can be achieved. Further, it intends to expose the obstacles so that they can be circumvented - not the least of which is an entrenched status quo that can be described as predatory in nature.

Code Name, 99

"Is it really possible? Within the specified field yes."

"What field?"

How would they know success? Within a defined scope it should be indistinguishable from the 'real thing'. A qualification of a credible observer is the ability to articulate something truly worth testing. More is relevant but 'worthy' goes to the energetic core.

The domain-to-complementary domain bridge, so-to-speak. Conceptually more accessible with an aesthetically driven agenda.

"One domain dominates, the other becomes all but invisible until the boundary is tested. This becomes the 'event horizon'.

It matters not from which domain the quest begins.

"You need to."

"Awkward self-deprecation a sure sign of a humility novice?"

"Probably not a sure sign, but reasonable basis for a strong suspicion of such."

"Personal versus private. I am so glad someone brought that distinction to my attention. If detection systems were tuned to the contrast perhaps hidden corruption could be more easily and/or automatically identified."

Automated linguistic methods can be tested thoroughly and quickly against very large data sets now. It is a measure of faith in consensus that very large commercial players are making their technology highly accessible (often free) to the masses.

"Why do you suppose some intelligent folk would become so incensed when certain commercial interest's faith is revealed."

"As we have shown, their are vested interests in triggering anger. They have been successful at guiding those you would expect would know better to behavior counter even to their own interests."

Winter is Relative

"When denial is finally wrestled into submission certain lights go on."

"Some patterns were just as before. Yet others were brand new. Encouraging that the initial patterns were recognizable as such. A visit to the 'soup' kitchen proved rejuvenating as some of the old were varying shades of dark. Nobody home to hear a snore (if present).

"Is their a friendlier way to push back? If so, I would like to find it."

"One wonders why cynicism can be so infectious in an otherwise enlightened situation. Un-calibrated egos playing a role again, I suspect. Just like the discovery of the supreme court decision silver lining, their may well be a gem underlying this."

"And if that brilliant young man were here today to see what is going on in a place he called home?"

Dissolving Pyramids

"We successfully infiltrated the unions because there was a centrally located command structure. This is different. The highly dispersed nature and high quantity of autonomous cells is overwhelming our supply of agents. The economics of our methods don't pencil out in volume."

"Another priority agenda item: what is our whistleblower exposure at polling agencies? Taking down Dodd-Frank in time is not doable."

The patterns are easier to define and detect now. A large part of the reason is the obfuscation and bribery tactics do not scale to the level required by the global network.

Replies to manipulation take hours rather than weeks now.

Furthermore, violent weaponry in the face of globally dispersed opposition is highly inefficient, at best. Some will claim pure motives. Not all are. And of those that are not, the self-dilluded are particularly problematic.

Managing complexity is one of the true hallmarks of our time. Some seemingly intractable problems are no longer.

Smaller … and smaller.

"Yes, there is a timeless message here. Those who count know the truth. In times of trouble the few will act with an uncommon courage in the face of uncertainty. They do not seek the adulation of strangers though many will benefit from their sense of what is right.

"There is a whole class of individuals who need to be led out of the hell of their on selfishness. When the courageous rise up to the challenge, the misguided's numbers will become smaller.

Old Farts

"Those of us who are either forced to or wise enough to coast are in a unique position. We are ideally suited to organic participation (as currently defined). The more fortunate among us are aware and see that having brute force capacity often keeps us from our best.

"Fortunately, I don't don't have energy to waste."

New Favorite Campsite
The override mechanism is normally subtle and beneath conscious awareness. Small groups without the burden of supervisors often indulge. Humor has very deep roots that virtually guarantee an authenticity commensurate with intensity. Manipulators are not funny.

The times and modern interactive communications have dramatically changed the scope of applicability for this ancient ritual.

"Some will oppose your work on grounds you have not anticipated. Further those grounds may not have anything to do with the consistency of your argument."

Is it that the bubble has isolated this democracy manipulator to the degree that the consequences of his delegating come as a complete surprise when he attempts to step outside its boundaries?

Whether or not this is the first instance is beside the point. Concentrated power is a prescription for self-serving delusion.

Denying knowledge or recollection may be some sort of defense, denying responsibility as an officer of the company, something entirely different.

To Lead

"The exceptional leader encourages the leader in all those led. To expect the benefits of synergy one has to have the courage, competence and timing to lead when it is appropriate to do so.

"Visionaries are extraordinary communicators. The foundation for this type of leadership is authentic identity. These are our working assumptions."

The truth is history. That statement is not to deride its value. It is merely another way of stating that what is to come is not etched in stone. Creating realizable expectations is the process of directing predictions and future actions in a unified way.

Self-calibration is but one way to describe the process. The implementation's mechanism invariably participates in its perceptions. The illusion of objectivity is that it is achievable in practice. A useful tool with limited application, observer perspective requires constantly updated skills.

Genomic Topology

Tree Hugger
"In a few words, it was a robust interaction on the subject of willful synthesis. Now that we are starting to get a handle on the complexity and volume of the data, its abstraction tells a much more compelling story.

"At least it felt that way.

"Consider some of the sources. Conceptualized relativity, directed emergence, quest for completeness. All are embodied in the setup for the scene. The serial presentation, though incomplete, far exceeded the expectations of traditional managers.

"In this sense, seeking resolution is merely a convenience for the abstraction process. Causality, though useful in many contexts, constrains the type of visualization we seek."

The Plan

"To answer your question, this one is intended to create beauty in the perception of as many persons as possible."

"Who would have thought that simply associating the concepts of 'identity' and 'friendly' in the same design would be novel in today's connected world?

"Decades ago, 'The Technology of Art' and the 'Art of Technology' was considered together in a remote art mecca. Old hat to Silicon Valley perhaps. If so, it seems to have leaked out."

To view beauty dynamically seems a natural and highly useful function of technology. A growing elegance, seen this way, is tantamount to fact.

Rationalized Abdication

"Rationalized abdication is my guess."

"How so."

"A story common to my decades old friends and I is about how 'the system' inexplicably walked on our up-to-then seemingly reasonable expectations of success as a result of doing the right thing.

"This is a very good time to once again invoke the concept of authenticity.  Those who would have you suppress your genuine emotional reaction are asking you to subordinate who you are to some kind of authority.  This is quite often about the worst application of obedience."

Back Door
"I knew of Citizen Bill because he had what we call in the radio industry at the time, 'pipes'. My best friend of those fateful years was a radio jock (disk jockey) like me. We both were deeply interested in technology. Black box and blue box were fascinating as was the international network they were relevant to. It is a long story involving Chicago, the telephone monopoly and rock and roll.

"By comparison, there were just a handful of us who wanted and were fortunate enough to spin records on the air and be payed for it. It was not lost on us that we had an inordinate influence on the society of the time.

"My friend went to the valley to work in radio there. He told me that what was happening within the radio station's reach would change the world. He could not have been more correct. The sound track of the revolution then was on the AM radio in the form of Top 40 music. JFK's initiative creating NASA was fueling a surge in technology not seen since the last world war.

"To the 'suits' and all too often, communications was just another promotional slogan. Certain air talent in radio that enjoyed technology knew different. More people contributing in the right environment was tantamount to alchemy.

The emerging electronics could not only attract the girls, it could do many other very useful things. Like a visit to the moon. Technology assisted sharing made it more than broadcasting. In the decades to follow, interactivity beyond a one-on-one telephone conversation began to overwhelm the choke points of publishing and broadcast controlled by the few. Whole industries were either transformed or became obsolete."

Often the best is the latest and so it might well be here. A bridge from here to 'we know not where' suggests there is no arrival, just the journey.

Wasted for lack of context? Perhaps not.

"I would not have chosen that word. In retrospect, I am glad I didn't. What the word has come to mean is ... let me just say, 'unfiltered' ..."

"An excuse often used to describe the difficulty many encounter when first viewing this log is the omsision of names and locations."

"Too many of our common words and phrases have been nefariously co-opted by certain powerful and irresponsible folk. Their method relies heavily on hidden indirection and has been very effective at manipulation."

"We talked about how corruption, in this case externally sourced, can easily influence the validity of various otherwise robust and thorough economic models.

"It would be interesting to take the case we just discussed and compare our new work to it."

The now familiar exercise of reducing a discussion to its communications and conceptual primitives was yielding to their adaptive automation technology. Choosing to regard information processing as technology assistance rather than some ego-driven illusion of autonomy was not obvious at first.

Special To General, Mr. Einstein

Intersection of structure and elegance?
"The bridge lands on dissimilar shores. We have a limited time to design it. Using interactivity to do so seems wise."

Time and gravity, so convenient - easily taken for granted. But key to the new 'organic meme growth'.

Within the framework is the value added at each link (bridge or connector). Abstracted experience applied to current content has the potential to improve both incoming and outgoing messages. Each of them increasing the utility of the cell by informing and updating its layered and hierarchically strutured dynamic history.

"For purposes of this discussion, I would like to call them, cells. Each cell is designed to have both structural and dynamic intelligence properties. The latter serves the purpose of dedicating each cell to its best behavior, both sensory and motor, in its local environment. Also globally connected in an appropriately limited way (system updates, monitoring etc.)

"To perform its functions energy is delivered via the 'connectors'. It may be desirable to also incorporate energy storage within each cell depending on the application.

"Temperature, accelerometer and gyro sensors are inexpensive and potentially useful for some applications."
