Complexity is a lot smarter than we are - all of our ratiobal interdictions into behavioural and sociological problems tend to amplify by displacement those problems.
It is only an immature psychological and cultural status which seeks certainty and completion in all things and in so doing, generates endless entropy and confusion. Science has no logical endpoint.
There is no "best" theory, there are only progressively "better" ones.
The great enigma of scientific and technological progress: for every great leap forwards there exists a concurrent potential for even greater (catastrophic) leaps backwards.
Does the social (and psychological) context of science and technology fundamentally inhibit the free exploration and development of new modes of thought ?
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.
A (perceived) ethical void in the bare-metal mechanisms of pure mathematical and statistical Reason generates that ideological and cultural reflex we see all around us as intransigent denial of demonstrable and provable facts.
What we require most critically is insight and effective methods for sharing valuable information with other minds. This is quite probably the most difficult communication task with which to successfully engage.
It is staggering (and blissfully unacknowledged) the extent to which this world of ours and all of its many anthropomorphic catastrophes are all quite simply occurring within and emanating from these brains between our ears.
The influence of popular communications and media is an effect measured by the relative simplicity of the associated communication method.
The implicit inconsistency of sufficiently complex logical systems implies that ethical systems, abandoned by the metaphysical anchor of immanent divinity, must seek their own internal anchors and logical certainty.
Does mathematics exist beyond material reality in a world of perfect (Platonic) abstraction ?
