oh I would love a diagram of that; perhaps some kind of 3D immersive diagram to assist with the blind spots inherent in natural subjective
oh i bet if this is ever implemented anywhere – it should be possible to create a 3D vector field of the entire space which could show the warping of everybody’s deixises (deixisi ?) at once.
But even more interesting would be if it could calculate a first person view of everybody’s dexises, which could allow for better coordination than is even possible today; like throwing a ball to a child but lower, yet now able to visualize it
oh yes! absolutely! I actually don’t like that they use the term “warping” which implies that the gods’ eye view is the more valid view
Yes! and isn’t there also something about distance measures as well? Like, what’s 2nd is shorter than what’s 1st, what’s 3rd is shorter than what’s 2nd, and when you get past 4th, we tend to mush it together in importance until we reach whatever the next natural power is
e like, I’m thinking some way to compensate for our propensity to follow natural log; we automatically rank things in importance, in effect a multiplier attached to each rank regardless of the measure.
So for example, think Olympics- arrival time:
1st place might be 29.78s,
2nd place might be 29.72s
3rd place might be 29.6s
10th place might be 29.2s
functionally identical times.
but because of our log bias, 1st place is given some kind of automatic multiplier making it vastly more important than 10th place
The example that bothered me since I was a kid was a Charlie Brown story where there was a Spelling Bee. Charlie Brown made it all the way to the finals, lost on a word he should’ve known and ended with his head hanging in shame for getting 2nd place, even though it was one away from winning and he beat out millions of other kids
