Is This New World an Utopia?

No, by definition utopia is not something you can reach.

This was the reason why I got the proposal to use nonutopia
when definining the domains nonutopia.org , nonutopia.net and nonutopia.com in 2002.

That is, the Utiopia we are aiming for is a Non Utopia, as we will be able to reach it❣

The only usage so far for these domains have been a few statements given about the future in 2004, and our patent on open innovation, which will be one of the keys to the propespering future.

Another usage has been to make a backup of President Obama’s promises, just after the election 2008, not yet fulfilled… which are on nonutopia.net, and it will stay so as we won’t use .net domains either apart from net administrations, like name servers.

We will use the domain wish-it.com to start with as in our mascot, as well as wish-it.org as generic domains but later we also promote local local top level domains due to specific local needs, e.g. wish-it.se, wish-it.us, wish-it.eu, wish-it.asia, etc. Over time we aim for top level domain free adressing as well as a more robust routing protocol than is currently implemented in the TCP/IP protocol.

Post-Apocalyptic Thoughts❣

So, you are still asleep… ;)

The Apocalypse obviously did not happen in the way many may have expected, many will claim that it didn’t happen at all, but… if you really start looking around, if you look upon the world with new eyes, maybe you will notice that something has happened, something wonderful, something that will soon make this world a better place.

There are two kinds of people; those who see the negative trends in the society, how its all become worse and worse and how it will all come to an end; then those who doesn’t see the negative trends but the positive trends and see how great things will become; then its me, and those thinking and observing in a similar way as I do. For my own I see the negative trends, but I see them as necessary to give strength to the positive trends, to make the crisis stand out more, to increase awareness, to encourage people to start acting. I see it all as an evolutionary process, where the good always win.

(yes I got an 85% score as optimist in a test a few years ago… :-)

Best wishes about a wonderful future♡♡♡

Meaning of Life: Condition 42

This is a proposal of a proof for condition 42. As a matrix solution to the meaning of life.
The meaning of life is an issue which has been discussed a lot, and many people seem to associate this with 42. Is this 42 a randomly chosen number? Here we propose that 42 actually is the Meaning of Life (or “The Meaning of Liff” as it was later jokularly denoted by the inventor …) but how can this be the answer to the ultimate question?

Let’s go back to inventions and design of systems. The engineer, inventor and author Gerald Altshuller [1926-1998] discovered that there are actually only 40 conditions that need to be fulfilled to construct any system. Gerald Altshuller made this discovery when he was working as a clerk in a patent office.  From 1946 to 1970 he had reviewed 40000 patents, and discovered that there only existed 40 different solutions to problems.

A theory was developed in Russian named Теория развития творческой личности (ТРТЛ) which in English is named Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ). This theory was further developed and millions of patents have so far been investigated.

When you want to invent something, you just specify the problem, and by solving a matrix equation with 40 conditions, you can design any type of machine or device.

This of course implies that patents as such may be somewhat overrated, but how does this relate to the meaning of life?

When you are working with artificial intelligence, and when you start making these beings reasonable smart, then you put new constraints onto the system.

A smart AI which doesn’t accept the system, will not work very well, it may consider everything meaningless and even become depressed if it would be capable of such emotions. So, condition 41 is:

41. how to make the intelligence accept the system?

Now, assuming that the system is convincing enough to make the intelligent being solve all types of problems in the system, which of course implies inventing necessary technology to just do the fun stuff, that is not having to work for survival and such, which of course should not be the meaning of life (even though there are some that believe so…) when the society has become advanced and civilized enough. Then a new problem occurs, because when the society can provide all the stuff that is necessary for survival, then the society may die due to boredom, suicide or similar. So the next necessary condition is:

42. how to make the system reach stable indefinite (i.e. not too boring in the long run) solutions?

This is The Meaning of Life, and there is a simple solution to this, something wonderfully simple (OK needs some (already invented technology) though), implying an endless joy of life, and indefinite creation by you, that will inspire everyone and not bore anyone. The actual solution to this will be presented in the near future.

My Free Will is not Free, it’s Reinforced Logic!

My whole life I’ve pondered over the issue of free will, as humans are claimed to have free will, and I will now summarize my conclusions.

First there are two things I see as axioms:
0: I exist therefore I think
1: I think therefore I exist

Reasoning in circles is the only way to find contradictions

This, however implies a dualism which can not describe itself, therefore these axioms leads to:
0: A world with beings that think
1: Beings that think about the world

Several thinking beings however, implies a society, as a being needs other beings to interact with. These beings produce:
0: concepts (ideas,fairy tales,fiction)
1: hypotheses (how concepts relate)
2: objects (observations, i.e. information, theories and things that can be perceived,used,improved and shared)

A: Concepts can by definition not be false, they are always true
B: Hypotheses can be more or less plausible
C: Objects can be more or less consistent

It is claimed thatfree will” implies that we can change our opinion about something voluntarily, this is something which makes no sense for me, as I don’t consider myself able to do that, as that would not be logical. The only thing which can make me change my opinion about something is that I have achieved new concepts, hypotheses or objects  to ponder over, or alternatively that I haven’t thought something through enough, that is, I haven’t yet come to a non contradicting conclusion.
Thinking is a hard problem, therefore may take time.

However, a few days ago a guest researcher (thanks Thomas [I forgot your last name at the moment]) suggested that “free will” is considered:
to be able to say “NO” to something you want.

This makes sense, as saying NO to something you want is something which in a sense is a lie and thus a kind of contradiction, and this is actually something I can do.
Now there are different reasons for saying no:

Let’s take chocolate as an example. I love chocolate!

First, is there any reason to say no to chocolate?
Yes, there are several.
Assume that I would say YES to chocolate each time I was offered chocolate and for all money I could find I would buy chocolate and eat chocolate all the time.

This would then lead to me getting fat, unhealthy and poor. If I get unhealthy and poor, then I would less likely be able to fulfill my other goals, and if these other goals also include to create better conditions for all, then me indulging in chocolate would be an indirect harm of other beings’ future, and I don’t want to harm anyone, neither myself nor other beings, now nor in the future.

Fortunately chocolate has a built in self regulating mechanism. It is enough with quite little chocolate. With one little piece you are pleased for a long time, as also the memory of the taste, stays long after you have eaten it, and if you eat too much of it at once then you simply feel bad as it doesn’t taste good any more.

However, if you were offered chocolate all the time, that is, as soon as you have forgotten the taste of the previous piece then you would take another, and another and… Well, that would lead to problems.
Here we are fortunately equipped with an auto-reinforcement learning mechanism, that is over time you adjust some kind of random generator by reinforcement learning so that it tunes itself towards the stable weight value.
Like YES,NO,YES,NO,YES,NO would produce e.g. a desired 50% ratio
for your desired set-point weight.

I also love food!
When you love food you eat a lot when it’s good, which has consequences as you gain weight and you can become unhealthy and thus not be able to fulfil your goals, you may die early and thus not be able to fulfil your plans or become a burden for your self or for the social system or indirectly harm your future fellows if you die early. So,
the logical is to keep the container of your mind healthy
.

Now there is a problem, as food is not only something we like but also something we need, then how can we find a suitable algorithm to make this system self regulate?

First, due to experience you know that more food makes you unhealthy which implies the conclusion that you need to eat less.

If you ask people, how to lose weight? People quite unisonly would say “eat less“. OK, that is easy to say but what does it mean? As people often say things without thinking about the meaning of what they say.

You can say thateat less” is a theoretical concept on how to make your weight decrease.

My usual approach for this was to fast (starve) now and then, which has allowed me to keep my shape during decades. This worked well until I met my current spouse. At a former workplace ASEA/ABB they used to denote my approach as “Roland’s digital diet” 😉

If we look upon how this is solved in nature, that is:
0: eat when you are hungry
1: eat when there is food when food is scarce

this is obviously an approach which works well, we don’t usually see fat animals. They eat what they need and then stop eating.
Now, since humans left the hunting stage and started organizing food by growing it, cooking it, adding spices, making it tasty, as well as made it possibly to store it for long periods, then we got an extra incentive to eat, just because it was good, and when it’s good then one may not stop eating just because it’s good and we want more. It added a “greedy” behavior to our relation with food.
So how to combine these two?
Since I met my spouse 2004 I noticed this last spring 2011 that I had gained 2 kg/year.
Now this implied that I had to change my behavior, that is, eat less. My original approach was to regulate this in a digital manner, that is stop eating for some period, but this didn’t work well longer due to several reasons: love for food (my spouse’s French cooking is very good, I cook too but not as good as she) and my love for and longing for my dinners with her.

Now, this problem has two extreme solutions
0: skip some meal
1: eat less at every meal

As “eat less at every meal” would imply that I would need to moderate my life in a way I considered impossible, and I know that I can’t do (for my spouse this approach works great though), so the only reasonable way would be to skip some meal. Now humans have many stupid, not well thought through ideas (humans live in some kind of constant lie). People say things like, if you skip a meal, then don’t skip breakfast nor lunch.
Which would be insane!

If I would skip dinners then I would skip the main reasons for me to eat, that is, to have a nice enjoyable meal with my lovely spouse, and I would also miss the opportunities to eat the food she makes. This would likely lead to risking the relation as well.
Skipping dinners would thus make me unhappy, and her as well.

So, the only logical was to do the opposite to what people say (which I have found is usually the only sustainable solution), that is skip breakfast and lunch.

This implied that I within a few months, April to June lost 14 kg, and then stabilized at my youth weight, and I feel great :)

A: I occasionally eat breakfast only when I’m hungry
B: I eat lunch occasionally of social reasons or when I’m hungry
C: and… :) now I never have to bother about bad conscious when it’s party time or plenty of good food, I can really indulge and enjoy it. Double win!

Implications:
0: It’s stupid to blindly believe what people say.
1: What people say should be seen as hypothesis generation.
QED: Assert the anti thesis as well, and think!

When you think, and somewhere in your thought train there is a contradicting hypothesis, which would imply that some parts of the system will fail, then you have reached an inconsistent solution, which implies: think further!

0: Thinking is pure logic, but it needs to be reinforced with learning.
1: Thinking sets you free!

Thinking sets you free

Thinking sets you free

PS. I’ll later describe how thinking can be implemented in a machine.
