The Identity Trap: How to Be Less Wrong

Zat Rana

Great – as far as it goes!

Snowden’s Cynefin Framework is a useful simplification of infinite complexity.

Our conscious awareness is but the tiny tip of the vast computational complexity that is a human being. We are vastly more complex than we are capable of conceiving.

Yes – we are all, and must eternally remain, far more than we can consciously appreciate, that is the logically inescapable nature of the beast.

With infinite strategic and algorithmic territory available, whatever we have explored must be a close approximation to nothing.

Our best approximations to truth are heuristics, nothing more. As contexts change, those heuristics are subject to unprecedented failure modalities.

The most efficient possible search algorithm is the fully random search.

Interesting times!!!
