Foundations of Spatial Networks

The tech economy is over!

It’s a massive bubble. The signs that the tech-based economy is over:

  • Calls to break up tech monopolies.
    • Google has been in extensive antitrust battles with EU since 2010.
    • FTC fines Facebook $5 billion for Cambridge Analytica scandal. (7/24/19)
    • Facebook is under antitrust investigation from multiple states. (9/6/19)
    • FTC Chairman Joe Simon says he is prepared to break up big tech. (8/14/19)
    • Google is facing antitrust investigations by DOJ. (5/31/19)
    • 50 states announce probe in Google antitrust violations. (9/9/19)
    • Google intensifies censorship of right wing and left wing sites.

  • Are they publishers or platforms? They are a mess!

  • The increasingly obvious dangers of the “transhumanist” scenario:
    • There is not actually widespread consumer demand for,
      • 5G,
      • Pervasive surveillance,
      • Robots,
      • Drones,
      • Brain machine interfaces,
      • Genetic engineering.
    • Only elite psychopaths want these things to be pervasive. They are trying to force a China-like techno-dystopia scenario on the masses.
    • We are Americans and heirs of Western civilization, we demand something better.

  • Until now, no one has any better ideas about where to go from here. No one has any ideas about what will displace tech as the main foundation of the economy.

  • How do we transition to the post-tech economy? What will be the foundation of the new economic paradigm?

  • LOCALIZATION- Tech helps us coordinate non-locally, and with that infrastructure in place, we can now build on top of it organic synchronous spatial networks.

  • The current tech-based economic paradigm is driven by data.
    • If data is so valuable to Silicon Valley and Wall St., why doesn’t it create value for local communities?
      • Why hasn’t it brought down Baltimore’s murder rate?
      • Why hasn’t it reduced homelessness in San Francisco or LA?

  • Because it’s digital, virtual data, not organic, contextual human interaction data.
    • Organic human interaction data has layers of subtlety, emotional valence, nuance, and contextual information that is valuable.
    • No one has figured out how to capture this value.
    • No one has figured out how to translate the market value of digital data into market value for organic, contextual data.

  • Value is not in data itself, but how the data is used.
    • Tech companies have no idea how to use their data to generate pervasive true signal market value– mutual leverage exchange that gives both parties a market advantage in their specialized roles.
    • Therefore, their data will not hold value for much longer.
    • Newer ways of organizing and using data will command market dominance.

How to take market share from tech monopolies and transfer the wealth to local communities:

  • It is possible to translate the market value of digital data into localized, spatial data.
    • Marshall Mcluhan emphasized how media environments profoundly affect our psychology. Different media environments emphasize different faculties of the mind.
    • The television media environment emphasized the “broadcast” modality, one person conveying information to a large, passive audience.
      • Asymmetric
      • Propaganda
      • Trust in far away authorities
    • The digital media environment by contrast, emphasizes the “memory” modality, digital computers are exact memory storage devices.
      • Symmetric networks of information transfer.
    • The transition from “broadcast” to “memory” is part of what is so confusing about our time.
    • It is a different form of social organization, which requires individuals to take more responsibility to accurately inform themselves.

  • We are not against tech companies.
    • Technology is extremely valuable.
    • It does not generate sufficient true signal market value.
    • It is not the true foundation of mutual learning information exchange.
    • We must build organic, localized, contextual network infrastructure on top of the tech infrastructure.

  • Tech companies create value by aggregating digital data and selling it.
    • They have no idea how to use data to generate true value.

  • Humans create value by aggregating organic data, sense data.
    • An effective decision is one that strategically aggregates over all the most relevant memories.

  • Conversation and organic spatial interaction are actually the foundation of economic value.
    • Conversations make deals, deals make markets.
    • Markets do not make conversations.
    • Conversations are the fundamental biosocial, psychophysiological ecology. Markets are a secondary ecology derived from conversation.
    • Conversations formally cause markets. They are the environment or paradigm within which markets occur.
    • Markets do not determine how we organize our lives as much as our family and our values determine how we organize our lives.
    • Human interaction is always of primary value and gives rise to market interaction.
      • Pervasive American politeness and courtesy.
      • Western, Christian values.

  • What generates economic value and opportunity for our local community in the post-tech economy?
    • Effective spatial coordination.
    • Effective, high-bandwidth communication.

  • Markets are completely psychological.
    • If momentum builds around an idea then it inevitably becomes valuable in the market.
    • The economy is moving from a tech-based, non-local economy to a localized spatial coordination economy.

  • What produces value in a pure spatial coordination economy are integrated metamodels of reality.
    • Polymathic, autodidactic.
    • Highly concise and simple.
    • Easy to learn and digest for anyone.
    • Drawing on structural analogies between culture, geopolitics, religion economics, mathematics, science, art.
    • Discovering high-value, multivalent categories that organize space.
    • The post-tech economy is based in the ecology of category relations and how these are causally implemented in space.
    • Meaning-making is coordinative value generation.
    • Transition from digital media to organic spatial media environments.
  •  
  • Where does true value come from? How does it build momentum?
    • Value is enigmatic.
    • True value ultimately comes from higher order intelligence.
    • Value comes from the strategic aggregation of the most relevant memories across time, implemented in exact contextual situations.

  • We can translate the economic value of big data into local solutions, through organic aggregation, which is neither religion nor mathematics.
    • Spatial networks and organic aggregation is a philosophy of religion, that draws on foundations of mathematics.
    • Each market actor is an aggregator.
    • Contextual spatial experience reflects all available information.
    • The metamodel of reality is continuously updated in its prior assumptions to reflect a more predictive mapping of unfolding events.

  • Organic aggregation depends on the authority of higher order intelligence, known as “God,” or “the Infinite.” Higher order intelligence is patterned.
    • What is the source of intuitions, dreams, contextual memories, choices?
      • These are not merely neurological. Neurology is important, but it is highly specialized and limited explanatory framework.
      • Neurology does not scale up to coordinate spatial environments the way that religion and mathematics does.
    • We depend on and exist within paradigms and environments vastly larger than ourselves.
      • Western civilization’s two foundation pillars- Christianity and Greek philosophy
    • We aggregate information by a higher order intelligence, the vast paradigm or environment that *speaks through us.*

  • Relying on higher order intelligence allows us to aggregate memories in the most effective way, and allows us to have high bandwidth intuitions of structural relations between memories.
    • Allows us to discover structural analogies between different domains of information which gives us a predictive advantage about how things will unfold in space.

  • Effective organic aggregation relies on mastery of one’s own mental processes, emotions, relationships, finances- every aspect of one’s life and movement.

  • We have to do the preliminary, preparatory R&D, research & development, to build up value momentum in the community, to make spatial networks possible.
    • Spatial networks are simply the ecology of categories and human interactions.
    • What fundamentally motivates and organizes movement through space?

  • Where there is more effective spatial coordination, market value follows.

  • How do we take away market share from the tech companies?
    • Do what tech companies do better than they do it- synchronous coordination.
    • Reach markets they don’t reach- local communities.
    • Tech provides non-local, synchronous coordination.
    • It does not provide localized, synchronous coordination.
    • Only spatial media can do that.

  • How do you actually implement synchronous spatial networks?
    • They are already in place.
    • Spatial media already exists as the “ground,” the foundation of being. It is the intrinsic state the everything tends towards.
      • It is the spatial environment and the paradigm that we already live in.
      • Everything is already in harmony, whether we realize it or not.
      • Our task it to realize it.
    • The foundations of coordination are the foundations of
      • Religion,
      • Mathematics,
      • Politics,
      • Economics,
      • History.
      • Developing a topography of the whole range of domains of human knowledge.

  • In the post-tech economy, valuable knowledge is not how to program a computer or how to engineer a robot.
    • Valuable knowledge is skill and strategy- how to master yourself as a completely unique conduit of higher order intelligence.
    • Valuable knowledge is contributing time-sensitive, critical information to the spatial ecology.
    • Contextual knowledge is as valuable as generalized knowledge.
    • Converging to more and more organic spatial coincidence.
    • Converging to increasingly compounding, meaningful spatial continuity.

  • The skill of organic aggregation is to create and discover the critical nodes in the information ecology; high-value categories that causally organize space.

  • Critical, time-sensitive information has always been more valuable than money.

  • There is tremendous opportunity to make each other rich and make our local community rich by doing,
    • What governments are failing to do,
    • What the education system is failing to do,
    • What news media is failing to do,
    • What Silicon Valley is failing to do,
    • What Wall St. is failing to do,
    • Which is to effectively coordinate in local space around mutual trust.

  • Take market share from all of these failing institutions, through economic, spiritual warfare.
    • Provide more effective information coordination than failing institutions.
    • Build up market demand for a wealth transfer to more effective forms of coordination, such as spatial networks.
    • Take failing institutions on as clients to upgrade their performance.

  • What is it that these institutions are failing to do?
    • Effectively coordinate movements through space.
    • Effectively generate scalable, mutual leverage interactions.
    • Effectively institute a spatial environment of mutual love and respect.

  • What does effectively coordinate movements through space and generate scalable, mutual leverage interaction?
    • Religion and tradition
    • Markets
    • Mathematics
    • Music
    • Spatial media is a direct spatial implementation of each of these, yet is none of these.
    • Spatial media is a philosophy of religion.

  • We don’t reject technological networks, we build on top of them to reach something more fundamental. We see what they point towards, with Marshall Mcluhan.
    • We reject and offer an alternative to the dystopian transhumanist scenario.
    • We reject brain-machine interfaces, brain microchips, nanochips.
    • We want to empower organic awakening of human consciousness under the authority of the Infinite.

  • Organic, localized networks of education and mutual enrichment.
    • Organic networks of mastery.
    • Conversation is mathematical.
    • Deep conversation is spatial.

  • What matters more than the tech platforms themselves is how the content is generated. What is the nature of the content?
    • Too much internet content is noise.
    • Foundations of learning allows for more signal, better content.

How do spatial networks actually work?

  • Equilibrium of Coincidence– when meaning spontaneously converges in serendipity, when when past and future match perfectly.
    • Rather than an equilibrium between bid and ask price, it is an equilibrium between private confidence estimate (future) and existing social norms (past).
      • This is a coordination game- a game where interests are convergent, but neither player knows each other’s strategy. 
      • One cannot be overconfident in their ability to influence the ecology of pervasive social norms.
      • Yet at the same time, the collection of individual confidence estimates is what creates pervasive social norms.
      • Therefore, if one can effectively aggregate across domains of social norms, then one can be confident in his ability to affect the overall ecology of social norms.
        • This is the importance of high-value, critical, multivalent categories that causally organize space.
    • Coincidence is a moment of meaningful “chance” or serendipity.
    • Coincidence is a moment of insight, intuition, or a glimpse into the pattern of the Infinite.
    • Equilibrium of coincidence is the idea that continuously compounding meaningfulness is a spatial attractor which draws in and organizes all spatial activity.

  • The testable, empirical hypothesis (or the foundational axiom) is as follows: the subjective experience of space always becomes increasingly more rich and meaningful.
    • When this hypothesis is disproven, then one updates their prior assumptions; Bayesian updating.
    • The prior assumption was a certain framing of the subjective relation to the Infinite.
    • This relation is framed as a sequence of categories.
    • The prior assumption is updated by discovering the sequence of categories that reflects a more accurate, precise mapping of the true subjective relation.
    • When the hypothesis is disproven, one consequently grows into a deeper relationship with fundamental, organic being. One grows closer to the Infinite.
      • This is an anti-fragile approach, one learns from disorder.
    • This is a meta-calculus of being, an infinite approximation of the true mapping relation of the Infinite, without ever actually becoming Infinite oneself.

  • With this hypothesis, experience converges toward the equilibrium of total organic spatial coincidence, the experience of space is continuously increasingly meaningful for all parties.

  • The equilibrium of coincidence is a more fundamental coordinating force than market equilibrium.
    • It is a more fundamental motivation and market incentive.
    • Day-to-day, people rely on the experience of meaning and human love to survive more than they rely on market forces.
    • This is a fundamental inversion of value.
      • Human value is now the organizing principle of markets rather than the other way around.

  • The philosophy of spatial networks involves complete submission to higher order intelligence, and mathematically rigorous mastery of how these intuitions are received.
    • Right brain and left brain in harmonic balance.

  • The transition from win-lose market competition to win-win, true cost economics.
    • Market actors now compete over who can generate more localized, symmetric, true signal value.
    • True signal market value is the prototype of market interaction.
      • True signal market value is mutual leverage interaction that gives both parties a market advantage in their specialized roles.
    • Market actors compete to implement more fundamental coordination equilibria, as this process in itself continuously converges to more fundamental coordination equilibria.

  • Efficient markets hypothesis- price signals aggregate all available information.
    • Do Wall St. price signals reflect the information on the homeless population and gun violence in Baltimore?
    • Do Silicon Valley price signals aggregate information on the homeless population in San Francisco? 
    • If no, then the market isn’t actually efficient.
    • The idea of spatial networks is to force markets to be efficient by generating and articulating the source of market value.
      • Force markets to factor in all social conditions and circumstances.
      • Create market entities that redefine value as true signal market value.
      • Provide mutual leverage interaction as a product, at scale.

  • Compete not with other firms, but compete with market coordination itself.
    • Love is a more fundamental organizing principle.
    • If Love comes first, then all market value follows.

  • Spatial networks is a new economic paradigm where mutual leverage interaction becomes the pervasive norm.
  • Spatial networks is a market solution to the “problem” of market coordination itself.

  • Fiat currency economy already relies on an environment of total mutual trust.
    • Can total mutual trust be truly externalized and realized in spatial networks?

  • The source of value is mutual learning human interaction environments.
    • This is how CEO board meetings take place.
    • This is how the university is organized.
    • This is how government works.

  • What is different now is that we know how digital media affects our psychology.

  • We know that all conversation is theological and mathematical (right brain and left brain).
    • Memory is topological distribution of emotional valences,
    • The past can be continuously reframed for the optimal interpretation of the present.

  • The foundational axiom of value generation:
    • Tradition and mathematics, right brain and left brain in harmonic balance.
