Since 1990, Interrogator asks
The humans here please stand up, Everyone does
What distinguishes the human from the Animal ~?
All answers fail Google. Google is better but fails to offer a workable answer. Quora is no better
Proof: We are sub-human, and the machine is already ahead of us
Animals are perfect we don’t even know what distinguishes us from them
Turing is history, Ashby wins We do not have the requisite variety to deal with external variety….unfit to survive? Devolving | Evolving
Interrogator provides a working solution
Humans ask questions
Humans have the potential to build..Continually improve …Learn…
An Intelligent system is one which continues to improve on its previous best performance
The retreat takes off.Proces lasts 3-5 days 8+ hours a day
Mastering the Lilliput
Why master the App~?
you would like to transform yourself to Gulliver
to master rather than remain a slave of various tools and disciplines
to be a builder rather than a breaker
+ Many more that we leave it to you to add on
above all choose not to give it all up to AI
Now the journey begins
In the past we used to do this one to one and in groups
This is the first time we are taking it online
We will complete the first round in 10 steps, a finger a day
The thumb stands for 👍
GPS 0,1 | Principles| Position | Positions | Direction | Reflection | Human | Adult | Professional | Woman / Man
The right palm stands for personal mastery
The left for Community
Another story, wiki for the Lighthouse story
Over 20,000 lighthouses have become redundant with the GPS
Lighthouses do not run around ships navigate in relation to them
invariant and variant positions
So let us look at some invariant positions
Human | Adult | Professional
Do we agree..like it…share it as your own on your page …this is in the commons…no copyrights..let us know..you are with us…completely.. on this..
Position, Positioning, direction, reflection
Why the right thumb not the left ~?
Return, reflectThere are many rooms in my father’s (source) house
The second room / the pointer …Indexing finger …Why ~?
The Pencil | Map | Maps |Map of all maps | The personal map | The Community Map
The compass | GPS enables mapping
Every build process begins with a fix of the position
We are as good as our maps. Remember Columbus
Every discipline (esoteric box) has its own maps
We don’t have maps that connect the silos
The Lilliput solves this fragmentation conundrum
For the Lilliput the first discipline is personal mastery and the second, learning together – community learning
Learning is outcome based, improvement from the previous best
How long is the planning horizon ~?
Wiki has lists of living centenarians who continue to work…Gullivers in comparison to Lilliputs who manage to 75 and barely work (often doing a machines job) for 25- 30 Years
The App works on an infinite mode with a real-time update of our previous best performance on each one’s focus areas
All users are potential immortals
Look at the number of variables when we reach the 10th level / finger
Two palms, ten fingers, each finger has 4 subsets 2×5×4= 40
The Tamils had a decimal system in which they further divided each finger into 10
If we follow that map we get 400
That’s quite a roomful..mind..FULL..ness
Inside 400 | outside 400
With two more quadrants for the past and future that would take us to 1600 the foundation on which the Kerala School of Astronomy and Mathematics was built. They called it Catushkoti
Lots and lots of balls to juggle with
But we don’t use all but one finger to fiddle with our devices and might even do away with that completely
We will get into this inside outside relationships much later when we finish learning to count – Akam | Puram connections as they understood it aeons before us even prior to the Vedic period or at its very beginning
We hope you see the road ahead
Next 3. Why we are no better than clocks and on freedom from the slavery to clocks
The Middle Finger
Clock, Measure,Metrics,Time flows back
The clock represents simple machines.All of them including the Newtonian Universe.In that universe even our bodies are clocks
The shot that leaves the barrel of the gun too works…..like a clock
But for the duration of the bullet’s trajectory and our 75 years some say there is no difference between the life of the gunshot and us
We are born like the gunshot with sound and fury and inevitably pass off like the bullets. What a meaningless life.
Wonder why the suicide rates are this low ?
We are but slaves of the clock and Time.Since we are mortals we created corporations….
Now think of Big Ben
Big Ben has been around than any of us
Think there are 4 hands to the clock
Two that you see..And two that you can not
The visible hands go forward making infinite circles..
The invisible hands go backward ….Anticlockwise…
Time flows back…
Every measurement involves looking back…Reflecting
Like where were you yesterday at this time and where are you now….~?
If one is not just a body …time travel is possible….
The body at rest continues to rust….!
Rest….less is rust…less
Was Newton wrong ~?…Partially yes
When we wake up in the morning and look back …Recollect our dreams we are going back in time…
She had a dream..
The Shape of Water ….this was post Oscar
She is on the veranda of her place by the sea…Looking out into the sea …post
Oakhi….that was a different sea
Waves roll on to beach…..Rather the seawall of giant boulders of all irregular sizes and shapes…..protecting land …they claim…
It is a beautiful morning …The sun is behind her…..The blue gray of the water turns bluer …
The sky turns golden
The waves roll on gently caressing the giant boulders
And then …as time stands still…the rocks disintegrate …..turns powdery ….into a golden beach
She has a golden beach
She wonders …Has my real estate crashed …~?
There is a man standing behind her..No I am the land…it is only a presence…and a whisper
The waves are gentler…They continue to caress the golden beach..
She wakes up …Wonder…What it means
In memory of Mr C Prasad ( PGP 79 – 81) the Gulliver among Lilliputs a dear friend and inspiration to this …Of 39 years…Words fail
The Ring Finger Thermostat .Universe of advanced machines…Self regulation ..Control..Marriage/Synergy..How did the 4th finger become the ring finger? Positioning, Mapping and Reflection, the job of fingers 1,2,3 become meaningful..If..and if only.. self regulation is achieved…Water turns to wine. Thus unlike the clock the compressor of the fridge is designed to work or not work, a kind of marriage of the lower levels to work together in an Intelligent manner. This is the how to of machines or the technology of technology, the symphony of the machines…
Are we collectively as intelligent as the fridge ?
We are not. We are nothing but clocks claiming intelligence..?
Do we act on available information ?
Farmer suicides in India, Gun control in US..The plight of the Fisher and Tribal in Kerala… Is more data the solution..? Or the transformation of data to information mediated by the self ? Why fake information works or killing us !
Where are the Adults~~?
Process maturity ~
Has machines already taken us over ~? Turing is redundant and it is time to revisit Bertalanffy, Boulding, Ashby et al…
Yes …whatever concerns we have of AI is already a reality.
Next The Little finger. The cellular ..Beginning of life as we understand
Do we collectively match the intelligence of a single cell ?
Yes No Yes and No …?
The Lilliput 5
We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special – Stephen Hawking
Very kind of him..Not to say potentially advanced but regressed to sub monkeys…Monkeys might object…We love our cats and dogs more…
The Little Finger. Level 5
The 5th step of 10 of the Ladder of Understanding in Flatland
The Cell. The Universe of unicellular organisms inclusive of the single human cell. Graduation from Machine Intelligence to Natural Intelligence / biological systems. The beginning Life as we understand it. Even the Rock has its own life and if we could take a leap outside of the well of Nature or Plato’s cave Everything is one as they saw the planet as one from space.
We have reached the halfway mark to the requisite level of awareness to grasp the nature of the design. on the ladder of understanding. If it were a 3D model the ladder would transform to a sphere. The Palm connects all the five into one and the self both hands into one
We are reviving a tradition as old as the human about to be lost completely by the new digital. This too is digital not binary but decimal demonstrating that our 10 fingers can be used as an interface to the machine, a metaanalytic framework, that it is imperative we manage invasion of data and the machine however massive their computational capacity and intelligence will evolve to be
All we need is not to lose TOUCH at Home not lost@home/s High Tech High Touch
From the right hand we move to the little finger of the left
From New Literacy, algorithmic literacy, we move to Community
The little finger Level 6
The Plant, the Universe of plants, more complex than the cell, a class apart from the unicellular, can we do without plants vegan or non
One takeaway the importance of Being Rooted
Extreme relativism has promoted the notion that everything is relative and slippery that there is no non controversial reference point around which we can come around, and we are destined to be lost in the desert, everything a lie in a post truth world
There may not be an absolute truth but is there something that is more true and less of a lie on which we can come together, which is in the Commons, the basis of Community. Modernity has pushed the tribal and the Fisher to the edges . Some of us have been and are still working in these edges witnessing the tragedy of the Commons. We see also the rise of the new commons, thanks to the new digital, the platforms are in place which makes this dialogue possible
The War on Kids . Pipers of Hamlin
Left palm..Ring finger, Animal|s
Key takeaways …Perfection, Community
We love our pets more than our neighbours
They are perfect
They don’t kill within the same species without rhyme or reason
We would not prescribe this prescription to improvement even to our dogs
We would need coaching by the Ants and Bees….On Community
We are Animal worshipers
We gain they lose : Research..Stray dogs are more intelligent than domesticated dogs. They become morons like us by the association
Third finger from left : The human | Individual | The Fall | What is it to be human | Wo|| Man
Level 8 the middle one Human The Fall from perfection Paradise Lost The individual human What the cell is to the body the human is to Community
Human unique in potential to improve from the previous best
Reflect …The best was before the beginning ..
The blessing | curse
Digital…Binary 0 |1 or Decimal ?
When binary meets the decimal its 0 | 10
Digital transformation…A perfect 10
Singularity is here now
Future is History
Level 9 fourth finger from the left
The system of systems continually improving from its previous best
The body is the mirror of the Soul
Now what : Iterate…To the right thumb start all over.. its return but with an improvement from the last time we were here
Iteration is not repetition Hope you remember the simplex method Linear programming Optimization It works at this level not at level 8 and the famous Five….
The Lilliputs are gone
Gulliver wakes up to freedom
Remembers It was a bad | good dream
Re..Search is to Re…Member
Kerala meets Kashmir….Once again
Story killing : intuition supported by reason…Hare and the Tortoise recycled n times and a Nobel ? ….What is novel ?
Thinking Fast …Thinking Slow
System A….System B
Lighthouse…Compass / GPS
Left brain…Right brain
+ n …….
Before the beginning was the picture….Picture perfect ….
Once again the visual is taking over….If we choose to SEE
The Lilliput ..In process…Integral Analytics
1. Draw the outline of your palms ….Mark the key words in the natural order..Max 10
2 Dumb charade in class …Guess the 100 words
3 Plot Time Now..Past and Future
4 Find the four spinning wheels
5 Find the Fire Chariot
6 Find the driver of the Car / Chariot
7 Share your outputs…Show
8 Find the connections…Akam/Puram…inside/outside…Catushkoti….Asoka chakra …Nagarjuna Chakra…Yoga…Singularity…Music..Vastu…The middle path…other knowledge traditions..religion…myths
10 Restless is Rustless…Thanks to Whitehead
There is no computer more powerful than this that restores the natural order …Regeneration is the outcome ….Healing our..selves
Who is afraid of AI ~ ?
Transformation is digital…. not binary …but decimal
The only species sans a sense of direction is US. Ducks and turtles are waterborne though they take birth on land. They don’t attend swimming schools
Birds and Fish migrate continental distances without GPS
Plants are rooted not homeless like us
Every single cell is as old as the universe. They go on living infinite lives
The Dravidians had a 10×10 x4 matrix with 400 variants to describe the interior world- mind FULL – and three more of the same to signify the external, past and present. Their lens to look at reality was not broken into binary as ours continue to be. They could see future as history…..Bhavishya Puranam was a much later addition
Our collective psychological age is 12 and some of our tech Titans are living out their early childhood dreams of flying that they don’t remember…
Why 12 ? Proof is Porn. We are blissfully unaware of our survival drive distortions …our collective crisis of adolescence …but discussing the midlife and late life crisis !
From the binary to the decimal
1.Thumb, 0,1,10, GPS..Principles..Position/s…Direction/s, Reflection/s, nothing, everything,choice
2Right little finger represents number 2 the tool at this level is a hard rock that the cave dweller used to leave his footprints on rock. We can replace it with a pencil. …to represent our simple tools…..+ Map/s..Our current maps remind us that we still remain land borne not waterborne airborne or flexible enough to see that we continue to be dwellers in flat land
We hope you SEE the direction of the exercise…Happy juggling with 1600 balls between your two palms and 10 fingers
Transformation is at our fingertips…numbers were coterminous with language…if we figure out our numbers order is the natural outcome…
