#BillGates's #mosquito technological (naive) intervention, is a very bad idea, that I think emerges from the #Anthropocene framework. Thats why I has been pushing #Technocene instead, bc it tends to induce a more #precautionary approach:

As a matter of fact, humans have coevolved with mosquitoes (biologically, cultural and technologically).. see our paper:researchers.one/article/2019-0…

For a while I was in a multilevel. The product was good but highly overpriced. I got in bc a friend I owed asked. But I did see some interesting tings... Oportunity to learn about selling and talking to pple; reading books otherwise never would have read; learn about BS
Everybody that enter with me I told it was more a selling course than a "business", no one lost a penny or they won money or I cover it.
It's ok to play anygame if you really know what you are doing and why as long as you don't hurt anybody.
That is what I don't like about BTC they are so pushy... They could play the game they like and that's it... Why they have this need to advocate soooo much.

No, no tenemos la responsabilidad de hacer este mundo un lugar mejor. Ese pensamiento aunque loable choca de frente con la realidad de la complejidad del mundo, que es un sistema que no entendemos, no podemos predecir ni controlar.

Sistematicamente hemos llegado a muchas
catástrofes, injusticias, crisis.. caminando por el camino de las buenas intenciones.
Ls escalas importan... ese espíritu de solidaridad y responsabilidad es correcto pero esta aplicado en la escala equivocada.
Tenemos la responsabilidad de intentar ser las personas más decentes, honorables y útiles que podamos. Ese es el nivel de complejidad que podemos manejar.

A veces podemos entendernos a la familia, al clan, la tribu... mas allá de ahi hay creo yo una transición de escala

I think those calling complex systems fake and tear their clothes about invoking non-naive paranoic (anticipatory) measurements about #coranovirus bc it lacks, in their opinion, of scientific rigor... Do not really understand how science work. What they want is a Newtonian
Reduccionista approach, and that's ok if you want to publish papers. Wait until pandemics is over take the best epidemiological parameters, build a nice complicated model, test against observation and voila.
This kind of science is useless for real world desicion making under uncertainty. Let us consider a gun with unknown number of Chambers and bullets on them. If you don't play bc you are paranoic about getting your brains against the wall you loose some, also unknown, amout

@JurchisRazvan @paulportesi Stable regularities in those activities? Not at all, on the contrary a lot of heterogeneity.

Feedback, well you have different time scales feedback. Yes you have an immediate feedback but then you have longer...i.e. do you take a single rope or twin ropes for a climb?
@JurchisRazvan @paulportesi You may find what the repercussions of your choice will imply in hours or days after making it. But if you climb a lot you do develop the intuition if when one option is better that the other. I think the real important think for develop intuition in that the activity force or
@JurchisRazvan @paulportesi Implies having #skininthegame.

In my perspective this activities tend to require that because you have: incomplete information in the input parameters, uncertainty about payoffs, limited time, limited resources ... And ofcourse feedback.. real consecuences.

"emergence happens as a consequence of the system is in criticality" ~ 9:13

now, what is the relation between #criticality and #antifragility? is criticality a consequence of the system being #Antifragile?

or criticality is the underlying mechanism of antifragility?

"..the art of adventuring is not dying"

“Climbing is all about freedom, the freedom to go beyond all the rules and take a chance, to experience something new, to gain insight into human nature… For me, imagination is more important in climbing than muscle or daredevil antics.”

"... anventuring... only if you are on your own, you carry all your responsabilities.."

"..sport is not adventure"

“Adventure has to do with private, personal experiences,”
Adventure implies difficult, dangerous (nature is dangerous) and the most important thing is exposure, you most very far away of any possibility in case of emergency... then you will live as humans beings i million years ago...
