Good stuff, good to see some group push back.
And contend problem is deeper.
System's manner of relationship-value computation / world culture's dominant information processing mechanism -- humans using monetary code -- can't process our new levels of complexity with sufficient reach, speed, accuracy & power.
If your culture's relationship with the sky and ocean are deadly, your cultural genome sucks.
For example, a European study states there may be as many as 57 different pesticides involved in colony collapse of bee populations.
K, now use monetary code to calculate the value order of the 57 pesticides. Generate a pricing hierarchy that represents the relationship values of the components and does so with reach, speed and accuracy, not only for right now, but for at least the significant downstream impacts on bees, birds, food production, crop pests, run-off and groundwater pollution, handling safety, etc.
Can't do it.
The Watson computer can read 800 million pages a second. (I can read 3? words a second.)
Verily, I'm a loser.
A somewhat imprecise distillation re info processing: Software code is to monetary code as alphabet code was to pictograph code.
The reach of our culture's coding mechanisms doesn't match our physical reach, our species new numbers wielding more powerful technology, that is, tech with ever greater reach in-and-across geo eco bio cultural & tech networks, and across time.
