E.G. I CAN ENVISION SOMETHING THAT SWIMS WITH TEN THOUSAND HANDS BUT

2018-01-17 21:29:51 UTC  

THAT IS NOT VERY EFFICIENT

2018-01-17 21:29:52 UTC  

There may yet be forms that haven't been seen

2018-01-17 21:29:55 UTC  

TO USE OR TO REPRODUCE

2018-01-17 21:30:00 UTC  

THERE MAY BE OTHER FORMS

2018-01-17 21:30:01 UTC  

And possibilities that could have been

2018-01-17 21:30:04 UTC  

THERE IS MORE THAN ONE WAY TO DO ANYTHING

2018-01-17 21:30:05 UTC  

BUT

2018-01-17 21:30:08 UTC  

A FISH IS THE SIMPLEST

2018-01-17 21:30:14 UTC  

SO IT IS INEVITABLE THAT SOMETHING LIKE IT WILL EXIST

2018-01-17 21:30:18 UTC  

IN THAT ENVIRONMENT

2018-01-17 21:30:31 UTC  

so your theory is that forms are basically emergent out of concrete relationships and certain demands

2018-01-17 21:30:42 UTC  

IF WE CHANGE FACTORS OF THAT ENVIRONMENT, THE DESIGN MAY CHANGE (FOR EXAMPLE, GRAVITY)

2018-01-17 21:30:49 UTC  

FORMS ARE EMERGENT FROM DESIGNS

2018-01-17 21:30:55 UTC  

GRAVITY IS AN IDEA, A DESIGN

2018-01-17 21:31:00 UTC  

IN INTERACTION WITH OTHER IDEAS

2018-01-17 21:31:04 UTC  

IT PRODUCES A LIMITED SET OF ANSWERS

2018-01-17 21:31:14 UTC  

what are ideas specifically

2018-01-17 21:31:16 UTC  

I agree with your sentiment, but nature's code is a black box and we only see the results of it being boilerplated

2018-01-17 21:31:17 UTC  

AND WHEN WE IMPOSE OTHER CRITERIA (EFFICIENCY, SURVIVABILITY)

2018-01-17 21:31:25 UTC  

THEN THE FIELD NARROWS FURTHER

2018-01-17 21:31:32 UTC  

I agree with your sentiment, but nature's code is a black box and we only see the result of it being boilerplated

2018-01-17 21:31:34 UTC  

IDEAS ARE CAUSAL PATTERNS

2018-01-17 21:31:48 UTC  

OF COURSE, @Hagel, WHICH IS WHY WE MUST USE ANALYSIS

2018-01-17 21:31:52 UTC  

AND COMPARE PATTERNS AND KNOWLEDGE

2018-01-17 21:31:56 UTC  

AND LOOK TOWARD OUR INTUITION

2018-01-17 21:32:00 UTC  

WHICH IS SHAPED BY OUR OWN PATTERNING.

2018-01-17 21:32:14 UTC  

where do ideas come from

2018-01-17 21:32:21 UTC  

^^^ SHE IS WAY TOO MASCULINE

2018-01-17 21:32:27 UTC  

IDEAS ARE THE STRUCTURE OF THE UNIVERSE

2018-01-17 21:32:30 UTC  

Or where do the patterns come from

2018-01-17 21:32:33 UTC  

CLEARLY THEY EXIST

2018-01-17 21:32:38 UTC  

BUT WE USUALLY CONFUSE THEM FOR THEIR MANIFESTATION

2018-01-17 21:32:48 UTC  

I'm just asking questions right now

2018-01-17 21:32:48 UTC  

IF WE VIEW THE UNIVERSE AS AN IDEA

2018-01-17 21:32:50 UTC  

Oh hi

2018-01-17 21:32:51 UTC  

WITH SOME PROPERTIES

2018-01-17 21:33:00 UTC  

What's going on, guys?

2018-01-17 21:33:00 UTC  

THEN OTHER PROPERTIES EMERGE FROM THE INTERACTION OF THOSE
