Trying to figure out a fursona, I asked google: “which animal has the most advanced search pattern” and found out about: Lévy walk / Lévy flight. Common chaos pattern in nature. It’s not Browning motion nor is it a self-avoiding walk. This is a biological chaotic pattern. Long straight paths with lots of bundled movement back to long straight paths. Albatross, human walk patterns, rat neurons, wandering deer and bumblebees. Look so very human, like a layout of roads and towns. All natural.

Been WAITING for someone to write about this. Here’s hoping I understand it. Basically, it applies the notions of autonomous chaotic systems but applies them to those that change over time and are dependent upon time. this should be a far more realistic treatment of chaotic systems as real systems, particularly biological and chemical, aren’t steady-state nor entirely random and yet we tend to model them as such. [BOOK] Attractivity and bifurcation for nonautonomous dynamical systems M Rasmussen – 2007 – books.google.com Although, bifurcation theory of equations with autonomous and periodic time dependence is a major object of research in the study of dynamical systems since decades, the notion of a nonautonomous bifurcation is not yet established. In this book, two different approaches are developed which are based on special definitions of local attractivity and repulsivity. It is shown that these notions lead to nonautonomous Morse decompositions, which are useful to describe the global asymptotic behavior of systems on compact phase spaces … Cited by 115 Related articles All 12 versions Library Search

Part of what takes me so damn long with a lot of my research is that I am EXTREMELY hesitant to ascribe equivalence to singularities. I’ll do so as a pragmatic matter and will ignore that in 1=1, the 1 on the left is not on the right and the right is not on the left but I’ll stay aware of it. Hard to get generalize or abstract anything in a singularity view. So I go slow and repeat a lot.

I only read bits of Cyborg Manifesto last year when I tripped over it during another “what’s my real politics?” search because I never like anything I see. Written in 1985, it’s a precursor to feminist posthumanism – or maybe it was the start of feminist posthumanism – the next stage once there’s egalitarianism, but more of a moving-towards than an strong dividing line thing. All whoosy mooshy stuff yet right up my alley it seems. I didn’t read it all but I knew within a few sentences it’s ‘my thinking” style. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Cyborg_Manifesto

I suspect what’s happening is a distorted view from where I’m at. I did a quick search and this is somebody’s drawing of what it “seems like” from their bottom left quadrant POV. and it feels “close enough”. I know there’s technical differences between, say, an oligarchy, fascism, monarchy, but from the POV from the lower left (I wouldn’t say “comrade” but I can work with this general idea), this is basically what it looks like. Now, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris show up in the “MAGA” section of this “feels like this from the lower-left POV” chart and so, this is why I understand 100% why people from the lower left will often say, “There is no difference between Trump and Biden”, because they see they as variations on a theme. But I see the pull “up” towards this kind of vague-blur fascism in the current administration (This is not just about Trump but what is being enabled by him as well as the ongoing successful plan to swap federal judges across the nation so that future administrations will have to deal with a continuation of 2016-2020, to Redden everything). But more importantly I see a pull towards the Left and lower in the Biden/Harris campaign that is a very positive effect of Bernie Sanders and other Progressives that I’d never seen from the Democrat party before, a pull I approve of because Democratic party tends to be a little too comfortable in a similar zone as standard old school Republican and is due for an upgrade. Yes, this is a crappy version and probably makes the more poli-sci types here cringe horribly. But this is where “walks like a duck, quacks like a duck” is important: There may be NO USABLE DIFFERENCE between different authoritarians to those down below once the authoritarian is above a certain level.
