THE HOMO SAPIENS ALGORITHM AND CORRUPTION

Presently it is high scientific fashion to define ‘life’ as an Algorithm (A).

I haven’t yet seen any attempts to write out the A in  commonly used symbolic language; sciences do not know enough about how the brain works, is the excuse.

But Homo Sapiens (HS) Algorithm works in ways that  can be observed in a limited way i. e. limited by  her senses and  in  the Human Domain (HD). (This is  relevant  at least for those of us who assign a high Bayesian probability to the  believe that LIFE is ‘ …. a material system….’; Dyson’s LIFE definition (2006) gives  an enlightening view on the material algorithmic  theory, though)

We understand that there are big differences between As (or Organisms)  but we can not describe how and why. Only observations like stupid. clever, (dis) honest, fast, slow and many more are available and  limited to how A is functioning in the HD but tell nothing about the exact working of the A in the broader realm where life is described by laws of physics, especially quantum physics.

It is helpful to distinguish between activities of HS that exist in the ‘HD’  and those  wider workings of A that HS can not register with her senses. HS has often choices for her decisions and acting in the HD but A is active in a much wider domain and is also formulating the   choices in the HD which means that all these projects of HS are not a consequence of her so called free will. Those projects are also typically very short lived in the Universe perspective;  coming and going in kind of evolutionary fashion on a single HS  as well as Group level.

The HD can be seen as  kind of  ‘surface improvement’; sometimes very beautiful e.g. love and altruism and sometimes very ugly e.g. wars and despotism. But the surface lacquer  is very thin and comes off easily.

It is assumed that A is processing Information/Energy in a broad definition. It is also assumed that the A is closely Evolution – adapted; probably  the main structure of A’s working is causing the evolution(s) to happen? .

When we, say ‘greedy’ we may just observe the A working on her own survival (or the extension thereof for the  ‘higher level survival’ activities of those who do not have to fight hard for day to day survival). Note that greed is a human expression existing in the HD but hardly in the wider domain where the total functionality of the A is acting.

If  the above is correct, all fighting against corruption is doomed to be futile in the long run; it is just one of those projects of HS  in the HD that have a very temporary existence. Corruption can be temporarily made locally inactive by HS rulings. One such is the introduction of institutional transparency where all actions and decisions are open and available to scrutiny by  HS’s watchdogs. To be `exposed` to public scrutiny seems to be one reason why a  person will (temporarily) cease her corrupt practices; at least until a new more hidden way is found. Ultimately. however, on the time scale a snap wider than  HS’s domain, the workings of A will prevail, which means self-interest …. First!

Corruption will probably stay as long as HS exists?
