Godel, Heisenberg and The Law of Shitty Clickthroughs.
Boyd saw that the act of defining reality changes reality.
...When you create a new conceptual system, then reality reacts to that system.
...In the startup world, one way this shows up is the Law of Shitty Clickthroughs:
Over time, all marketing strategies result in shitty clickthrough rates.
In 1994, a display ad might get a 70% clickthrough rate. Display ad clickthrough rates are now in the neighborhood of 0.05%. — Taylor Pearson
Any attempts to prove the system is consistent and matches up with reality actually generates even more disorder and uncertainty, and it makes the conceptual system less useful for increasing your capacity for independent action.
If you try to more accurately figure out the position of a particle, its velocity becomes less predictable (and vice versa).
Any increase in an attempt to get a more aligned match-up of concept with reality just increases the misalignment and creates unexplained occurrences.
When we try to force reality to fit our conceptual system, we create what Nassim Taleb has called “black swans”
— dramatic and impactful events not predicted by the prevailing conceptual system.
Interesting.. we'll need to discover "Which " components to use and "How" to combine them, perhaps tossing in some "negative enhancement" features ? — William Zayonce
Thought provoking Dave. I seem to recall you describing 'Whales' going through a similar process each year. — Tony Kofalt
I have also learned that the Holy Grail is migratory. — RanchWest
Although winning methods can exist , which counter balance the effects of "random chance ", the "Holy Grail" cannot exist unless "chance" is completely eliminated. — William Zayonce
.that is the "chance" effect — William Zayonce
