The Universe is about Energy, Information and You

The Universe is not matter and space, but energy and information. Energy exists in the form of patterns and propagation of waves in the vacuum that fills space. Energy is the ‘hardware’ of the universe (not matter, which is just a perception). Information is the software.

The Universe is not an assembly of bits of inert matter moving passively and randomly in empty space, but a coherent and dynamic Whole.… Read more...

Strong and Weak Artificial Intelligence

AI (Artificial intelligence) is a subfield of computer science, that was created in the 1960s. It was (is) concerned with solving tasks that are easy for humans, but hard for computers. The term comes from the massive computers of the 50s (prof McArthy).

Narrow AI or Weak AI is doing specific tasks better than humans.… Read more...

The Weak Spot of Sociopathic Elites

The more unfair and secretive an organization is the more paranoid it becomes, and the more leaks it suffers. This makes its internal communications very inefficient, as everything must pay a kind of ‘tax’ to maintain secrecy, in the form of slowness, inefficiencies, leaks, etc.

When your entire existence is devoted to your sociopathic tendency for control, you eventually fail because of your self-imposed blindspots that are obvious to normal people.… Read more...

Inflation is about Money and Production

Money printing = inflation is very lazy thinking. And it doesn’t help that the models being are wrong because of the assumptions attach to those models.

Inflation only occurs if the money supply outstrips the resource base. This is precisely what is happening in Western Europe and the US at the moment. They have created too much money and now that their resource base is diminishing due to the sanctions, so they are getting inflation.… Read more...

The Double Spend Problem

So far, the essence of Internet has been spreading information. To do so it copies information for ever into nodes, clients, and people’s minds. That’s the reason because the Internet ended the music and movies industries as we knew them. It teared down the barriers to make copies.

The essence of the new Internet (based in Blockchain) is to transmit VALUE.Read more...

What is a DAO?

A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), sometimes labeled a decentralized autonomous corporation (DAC), is an organization that is run through rules encoded as computer programs called “smart contracts”, and whose financial transaction record and program rules are maintained on a blockchain database.… Read more...

Thinking is the Box

The problem is not about thinking inside or outside the box. The problem is the process of thinking in itself. Ideas and creativity are not about thinking.

Detach from thought and see things from the outside, with the information that comes from subconscious. That’s where real intelligence lies.… Read more...

Bias vs Variance, Overfitting vs Underfitting

This is related to confusing signal with noise.

– Bias: distance of the results to the target.
– Variance: the spread of the results

– Overfitting: The model get more complex and fits too much to the noise from the data. This results in low error on training set, but high error on new data, test/validation sets.… Read more...

From Subprimes to CBDCs

The idea behind banks is that they lend into business and industry to increase the productive capacity of the economy. Business and industry don’t have to wait until they have the money to expand. They can borrow the money and use it to expand today, and then pay that money back in the future.

The economy can then grow more rapidly than it would without banks.… Read more...

NFT Refunds

Will the ERC721R NFT Standard Become the Anti Rug-Pull Standard?
Basically, after an NFT including this standard is minted, the buyer can send back the NFT to the smart contract and will automatically get a refund, no questions asked. This will make rug-pulls harder to pull, and also lower the risk for the buyers who can decide that they do not like the direction in which the project is going post mint.… Read more...

Information Entropy and a house made of legos

Entropy is the number of ways you can arrange the littlest parts of a system and still get the same big system (1). Alternatively, entropy technically is a mean to determine how many different ways you can rearrange the atoms of an object, and still have it look pretty much the same.

For example; a bag full of Lego Bricks has a lot of entropy because there are many equivalent states or configurations (disorder).… Read more...

Germany destroyed, again

The ECB’s money printing has managed to do as much damage to Germany in the past decade, as Weimar money printing did back in the 30s.

In the 3 decades leading up to 2010, Germany was pretty much the only Western country where housing didn’t get more expensive. Instead, German housing got better, while prices actually decreased a bit year over year.… Read more...
