—“It is possible to fail in many ways, while to succeed is possible only in one way; then, excess and defect are characteristic of vice, and the mean of virtue; For men are good in but one way, but bad in many.”— Aristotle
—“This is a manifestation of a general principle stating that all good things (e.g. stability) are more fragile than bad things. It seems that in good situations a number of requirements must hold simultaneously, while to call a situation bad even one failure suffices.”—Vladimir Arnold (mathematics)
—“All well-adapted systems are alike, all non-adapted systems experience maladaptation in their own way,… But in the chaos of maladaptation, there is an order.”— Alexander Gorban, Mathematics, Physics
–“All domesticable animals are alike. All undomesticatable animals are different.”— Diamond, Guns Germs and Steel, Anthropology
“They cannot be picky eaters; reach maturity quickly; willing to breed in captivity; docile by nature; cannot have a strong tendency to panic and flee; conform to a social hierarchy.”
–“All happy families are the same, all unhappy families are different”– Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
—“All high trust civilizations are the same. All less trusting civilizations are different” — Doolittle, “P”.
A High Trust Civilization Must:
1. Universal Militia (egalitarian, meritocracy, entrepreneurial warfare), 2. Heroism (truth before face, duty before self), 3. Sovereignty (reciprocity, rule of law, jury), 4. Markets in All Aspects of Life (cooperation, production, reproduction, commons, polities), 5. Excellence (competition, innovation, beauty). 6. Limiting the reproduction of the (dependent) underclasses.
All Truthful Speech Must:
1. Categorically, 2. Logically, 3. Operationally, 4. Empirically, 5. Rationally, and 6. Reciprocally consistent, 7. Fully Accounted, within 8. Stated Limits, 9. Restitutable within the means available, and 10. Warrantied as such.
All Morality (Reciprocity) Must:
1. Productive, 2. Fully Informed, 3. Warrantied, 4. Voluntary Transfer of demonstrated interests, 5. Free of imposition of costs upon the demonstrated intersets of others, 6. whether body, kin, physical things, normative things, institutional things, cultural things, civilizational things.
The Law Must
1. State the via-negativa irreciprocity to resolve, or via-positiva opportunity for cooperation.
2. State the intentions of the signatories
3. State the operations (process of construction)
4. State the limits
5. State how it will terminate, and under what conditions it will terminate.
6. State how it is constructed from reciprocity, including what prior acts it depends upon, and would falsify (invalidate) it as a consequence.
7. State how it is warrantied by the signatories.
8. State the signatories.
THE MEANING OF SYMMETRIES
A “symmetry” consists of a set of inputs, states, or outputs that must remain constant in order to maintain the survival (state) of a system regardless of transformation (change).
In mathematics a Symmetry refers to an intrinsic property of a mathematical object which causes it to remain invariant under certain classes of transformations (such as rotation , reflection, inversion , or more abstract operations).
There is no alternative to the symmetry in western civilization.
If we restore it.
If not, only one thing must fail, for it to fail.
Dimensions (sets of causality)
Symmetry (necessity for equilibrium of the system)
Only europe did this. Only Japan could have equalled us. Only china came close. Only india was otherwise on the path.
