¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Tony, I offer a reason for the symptoms of severe dysfunction within humans you masterfully present in your beyond-awesome new post to laetus in praesens. Using the G7 Dwarfs as the theme was insightful.
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Humans, as individual persons, won’t ever avoid the dysfunctions you outline. We all lack the “hardware” for the requisite cognitive competencies, and can’t be taught them. We all have basically the same brains as our tribal ancestors. With seafing technology we have accomplished much, but we still remain dysfunctional is specific areas. Unfortunately, all our cultural myths depend on our personal, individual “prowess”, in the very domains we lack.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Our collective potential is vaster than we imagine. Seafed from childhood as functioning members of teams, crews, and communities (tribes) and seafed to accept our limitations (we can’t leap over tall buildings), we can organize as human systems which will not exhibit the deficiencies you brilliantly illustrate in your post: G7Dwarfs.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 In metaphor, the “cells” of the future humanity “organism” will be “communities”. Individuals are analog to cellular “organelles”. Today, although we have moments of autonomous agency and creativity, what we “become” is determined by “nature” (culture, language, family, friends, “accidental happenings”).
¶ 5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 I’ll cite here only one basic limitation, the classic 7+/-2 law, from George Miller. Humans are limited in the number of independent variables they can use in their working mind. For most quality thinking, the limit is three. The relevant systems we encounter today all have far more independent variables.
¶ 6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 With quality semfields, over time, teams can work with the relevant systems that challenge us. Scientific processes already transcend this limit, but not fully. In future humanity the “tribal unit” must be part of the design. Human persons will gain, being liberated from trying to be what is impossible.
¶ 9 Leave a comment on paragraph 9 0 To others reading this, I highly recommend you devote a few quality hours exploring Tony’s masterful semfield – impressively organized to integrate decades of high quality work (back to 1962). To study in depth any of his “essays” would take months: I find them impossible to just read. I can’t imagine the time and effort composing and crafting them.
¶ 10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 laetus in praesens is a planetary resource, one of “Earth’s Wonders”. I confess not devoting more time with it. I don’t know how, or even if, it is being used. I anticipate it being used in Up2Met. It is the best example of that I call a semfield, and a rare one – created by one, very unique mind/brain. I wonder how many quality semfields exist today?
Greetings My latest in relation to the G7 and migration issues under discussion within the EU: Group of 7 Dwarfs: Future-blind and Warning-deaf Self-righteous immoral imperative enabling future human sacrifice https://www.laetusinpraesens.org/docs10s/g7dwarfs.php Global cultivation of blame-games Future blindness and the deaf effect as cognitive biases Stunted focus on proximate causes and short-term remedies Cultivating the "Big Lie" -- and "lying bigly"? Systemic blind spots engendering systemic errors Big Lie of the Anthropocene: underpopulation or overpopulation? Migration and other distractants enabling future human sacrifice? Short-term humanitarian blackmail ignoring long-term human sacrifice Global configuration of cognitive biases: towards mapping G7 susceptibility G7 implication in a fairy tale familiar worldwide Understanding otherwise the gravity of the global situation Global governance as "monkeying with the elephant" Best Tony
