Sociological, psychological and economic systems are poorly optimised to cultivate or acknowledge the forms of innovation and creative thinking that their existence in the world depends upon.
Conventional platitudes and "safe" research agendas actively inhibit the free flow of ideas that discovery and authentic intellectual creativity or intelligence require.
Integrated and distributed information and energy processing systems are biased by physical principles towards the minimisation of uncertainty.
Information density is an interesting concept.
Creating an "unhackable" system is a lofty aspiration; systemic closure is an implicit logical problem.
If a non-trivially complex organisational system of any kind or scale is to be considered (even notionally) as complete or entirely self-consistent, it can not also be adaptive, flexible and resilient.
The unfolding patterns, exploratory revelations and emergent complexity of Artificial Intelligence may not ultimately reveal itself to be as useful to us as we (and all our aspirations) turn out to be to it.
As the frequency of technological change accelerates, the amplitude and range of uncertainty is concurrently amplified.
It is in our attempts to explain, to mimic and to supersede nature that our greatest failures manifest themselves.
Psychological closure or completion of an isolated ego remains a functional, technological and sociological impossibility.
Does human stupidity actually serve a sociological purpose ?
