Nice! Question: In a distributed system, is there specialization?
Interesting! Sounds homogenous though, but I’d prefer a society of generalists over specialists – yet, I suspect there’d still be some basins of attraction.
Still though, upon people falling into “wells of similarity”, forming groupings, what’s to prevent the groups from destabilizing the distributive network, resulting in a decentralized network?
And.. in that case, what is to prevent a centralized network from ultimately forming
ah wait – unless the distributed network is led by a ‘hidden hand’ of some kind: a unifying ideology or charismatic leader? That could avoid the problem of over centralization at least.
It sounds like the way things are done now, planetwide, except the process of harmonization might involve some discord. Systems at the edge of chaos without reaching chaos can stabilize into harmonious patterns.
What are the variables that constitute influence over one’s own life?
True – it’s a system without discernible pattern, like a car engine’s parts scattered on a lawn
I ask this because most people get up each morning, do what they do, go to sleep at night. Repeat.
Some people are in life-or-death situations but most people on the planet just live their lives each day, having reached their own equilibriums within their respective systems.
What you’re suggesting sounds like it might result in a chaotic system as power lines are removed, unless there is a unifying force tying everybody together that’s stronger than existing power lines, such as a unifying ideology of cooperation or something.
