Order from Chaos
The very nature of reality is perhaps order from chaos, be it at a quantum levels as matter (order) is energy (change) stabilised and defined in a point in space/time. O the organ we experience of reality through, our brains left and right hemisphere. This is the apparatus that we carve out our successful existence in our environment. Both sides of the brain operate very differently with one side primarily looking for deep mechanical logic and the other is more wholistic and less tied to facts and maths.communicate to produce meaning.
Intelligence in cognitive neuroscience is defined is the ability to:
- Recognise patterns
- Categorise Patters
In practical terms we can say ones ability to interact with the environment successfully is a product of their ability to recognise a pattern and then apply the correct category to this judgement. In other words to discern Order out of Chaos.
Chaos being the inability to form regular and reliable predictions about the relationship between cause and effect. Order can be defined as a state of regular and reliable predictive success about the nature of cause and effect.
Cause and effect simply put is:
If this, then that
Layers of reality
There are inherent abilities in an individuals ability to make order from chaos. As we increase in systems of complexities there are many ways that the data field can interact making pattern recognition and categorisation more and more challenging. Making predictive successes out of cause and effect can be more and more chaotic as the natures of the data take on relationships of their own.
Simple terms of cause and effect such as: Door shut, no entry, become more abstract and conceptual with things like, green light means go. it is a non physical barrier, a concept.
Concepts are something that become increasingly intertwined. One concept can rely on part of another concept, but not the whole. The order that can be achieved bu the pattern recognition must hold the duality of these concepts in appropriate categories of cause and effect.
The: If this, then that of certain concepts must hold a status of contingency in them to be valid, a boundary condition. This may appear paradoxical or contradictory such as carl poppers tolerance paradox or a Cartesian Circle. Then in other cases a concept it is completely counter intuitive such as Quantum entanglement or Space time.
Levels of complexity
Because we all have differnt levels of ability to recognise patterns or capacity to hold data at any one time, the level of complexity someone can make regular predictive results from varies. The strata of concepts and reality mean that there are boundary conditions fro an individual to the amount of complexity and what appears to be contradictions and the value that can be obtained from these concepts. The Thesis/Anti thesis synthesis of concepts and the contingencies of what are valid contradictions and the paradox these may create represent the level of concept an individual can work with.
The dunning/Kruger effect is the observed gap in perception and performance. This is; self assessment and objective actual assessment interface. This creating a levelling out of the self assessment vs the steep line of the objective assessment.
In simple terms, there is gaps in peoples ability to self asses their competence in a subject. This has real world implications when making judgments about other peoples ability based on the measure of ones own perceived ability. In practice this means that the proper checks and balances must be applied to all judgements or else they a prone to inaccuracy.
What this means for the System
Because the system that I have created is an evolving concept that is constantly self assessing and re calibrating, it does not suffer as heavily some of the ill effects of cognitive dissonance and bias that belief systems sometimes often fall prey to. It does however make it almost incomprehensible and immensely complex. And this is not for everyone, and that is OK.
