An agent can only flip so many bits per second. If it gets stuck in a computational conundrum it will waste energy that should be used for survival purposes and the likelihood for agent death increases.

Avoidance behavior for impossible computation is enforced. Mathematics is a type of database for computational energy storage. All of us multi-agent intelligences, mainly mathematicians, contribute to it over time. How long did it take to invent the wheel, but once the pattern is known, it takes just a few bits to store. That's one obvious method of the leveraging, but this could be, and is, used all over the place. John From: Jim Bromer [mailto:jimbro...@gmail.com] John How would a mathematical system that is able to leverage for unnecessary or impossible computation work exactly. What do you mean by this? And how would this work to produce better integration of concepts and better interpretation of concepts? On Fri, Aug 13, 2010 at 4:25 PM, John G.

When I was referring to densities I was really meaning an interconnectional multidimensionality in the multigraph/hypergraph intelligence network, IOW a partly combinatorial edge of chaos. There is a combination of state and computational potential energy that an incoming idea, represented as a data/math combo, would result in various partly self-organizational (SOM) changes depending on how the key - the idea - effects computational energy potential. And this is balanced against K-complexity related local extrema. For the statistical mechanisms I would use for more of the narrow AI stuff that is needed and also for situations that you can't come up with something more concrete/discrete.
