    the survival of understanding

    Postby distrans » 10 Feb 2018 22:47

    that is

    what makes what you know of value to the point of it being conveyed as you understand it

    to future individuals whoms lives will inevitably lack comprehension of basic elements of existance which underlied the assumption made before the predicessors made their edicts which got passed along

    im not a math guy but they know when you look at anything the change of its official positions is just an indicator of its age into the past


    aside from change itself and all the uncomfort that goes with recognizing it influence on everything

    did you find anywhere something to hold onto?

    These books suggest that all of our understanding is conveyed through genetics, so we don't have to worry about writing it all down, exactly, so long as we breed. Although even that may be a special case in my theory is correct that Dune uses the same physics as Destination: Void, in which case probably it's some property of the universe itself that conveys the data, in which case nothing is ever lost.

    Then there is the theory of the noosphere, which says that information has a 'culture' all of it own, and grows as the human race continues and develops. No one person is require to pass on the data in the noosphere, even though it is only propagated by the conscious life of everyone alive. In this instance we might have to conclude that maximal participation in the lives of others creates the best injection of our individual knowledge into the general cloud of the noosphere.
