Quora – Paradox

What is the greatest paradox about being alive?

I don’t seem to have many paradoxes.

I have many uncertainties.

The more truths I surrender as heuristics the more paradoxes disappear.

Paradox seems to be a reliable indicator that the model being used to interpret the situation is not up to the task. So it is an indicator that a new model is required, and time to start testing out new ones.

I’ve been around that path a couple of dozen times, and am now in a fully probabilistic model, of a world that is in many levels of balance between order and chaos in terms of fundamental randomness constrained by probability functions. So it is a very long way from classical logic, and it closely approximates it in some contexts (much like general relativity is a long way from Newtonian mechanics, but closely approximates it in some contexts).

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
