The Functional Mind II


ANN 2

A cartography of the human psyche

“We are not smarter because we have more neurons, we have more neurons because we are smarter.”– el Loco Gringo

OK children, we now get down to the real nitty gritty. How does the mind really work? We will disregard the physical aspects and concentrate only on the logical aspects of operation. Time to quit talking baby talk and psycho babble.

The protohuman brain consists of only a few logical determinations. Sensory I/O, Interface, the ANN and it’s associated defense mechanisms. Auxiliary support and control mechanisms are outside the our direct purview. The sensory I/O consists of the sight, sound, smell, proprioceptor input, (pain, location, heat, cold etc). The interface is that part of the mind which transforms input from the sensory I/O into a form usable by the defense mechanisms. (turns photons into a spectrum of intensity and color, turns vibrations in the air into sound. The output of the sensory I/O is not reality but a representation of reality. The ANN is the Allocated Neural Network, dedicated to the maintenance and modification of the defense mechanisms, and excluding that part of the mind devoted to autonomic responses. Estimate 200-300 cc of brain mass. This is the I, the me/not me, the seat of consciousness. It thinks real time. Time is the missing element in the understanding of the mind, that element ignored by the various ‘ists. Getting the timing right is crucial to the survival of this critter. It takes time to think. If the timing is too short the defense mechanism will be relatively unsophisticated. If too long, it will be spending too much time. If Charlie Chimp is standing around the Savannah with his head up his butt, thinking about doing the ugly bump with Poly Protohuman, and his response to a threat is not fast enough, or sophisticated enough, he won’t be doing Poly tonight and we won’t have a Stanford Dept of Psychology for el Loco Gringo to make fun of., and that would make him very sad. So an optimal time evolved. about 1/2 second. Using his newly evolved ability to use tools and implements, Charlie Chimp (Alpha Male) could now beat the subservient males about the head and shoulders with a stick guaranteeing his primacy in the poon tang receiving department and reinforcing the taboo.

There is a time imposed limit on the number of neurons that this type of mind can utilize.

Sometime between 50,000 and 2,900,000 years ago the greatest evolutionary leap occurred since the first few neurons clumped together. Wet ware. This miracle allowed the thinking to be done off line and the resultant changes implemented. Indexing allowed for the possibility of not accessing the data directly, but indirectly. ie with the reprogram able wet ware it is necessary only to know the location of the data, not the data itself. This mind is capable of handling many more neurons without compromising the timing constraints.

People think backwards. We are not super-chimps. it’s a whole new ball game.

Introducing the unANN, the unAllocated Neural Network, a free form mass of neurons (2000cc) that can be programmed for specific functions and used as a storage area that can be accessed via indexing by the ANN. It is now possible for the defense mechanisms to become much more sophisticated. They are so much more sophisticated that a new word is needed. Algorithm.

Duality


Working the logic both ways

The basic premise (my truth) is that we have two cognitive minds which give us two perspectives on the world. We project these perspectives onto whatever we perceive and see giving us the illusion that the world is of a dual nature. These two perspectives are not two sides of the same coin but the same side of the same coin, the other side being reality. Yin IS the right mind’s perspective. Yang IS the left minds perspective.

Consider Chinese medicine in which the object is to balance the Qi to the Yin and the Yang. Another aspect of the difference between Oriental and Western medicine can be described as Oriental treats the Yang and Western treats the Yin. Everything in the universe can be described in terms of Yin or Yang. This is one of the underlying philosophies of Oriental Medicine. Yin is the feminine qualities in the universe, Yang is the masculine qualities.

Consider sight, this right side of this graphic illustrates what is happening in the right mind, (perception) an ever present “now”. The left side illustrates what is happening in the left mind, an interpretation which discards the “now” and adds time and color so as to better “make sense of” motion. Neither of these perspectives is reality but only a perception and interpretation of reality.

Consider society. In western society we have the hipostatized belief in the state and it’s institutions, ignoring the self as constitute part of the whole. In eastern society there is a hipostatized belief in the self, ignoring the whole. It would seem that a definition of civilization would be the ability of the hyper-males to shut down one of the minds, creating a permanent “slave” class. (idiots). In the west is the aristotelean brain fart, in the east the taoist brain fart. Acculturation IS indocrination. Now it is education in earlier times it was religion.

Consider world view, the lion and the lamb exist within all of us, and one or the other must be shut down by the hyper-males to maintain control, and keep primacy in the banana and poon-tang receiving departments. Either top down or bottom up thinking must be shut down, so as to imprint a cultural view in which a hipostatized belief system can replace one or the other mind’s interpretation of reality. While we are part of the state, the state is the summation of us, maintaining it’s illusory reality.

Consider calculus. Integral calculus IS bottom up thinking as applied to euclidean geometry. Differential calculus IS top down thinking as applied to euclidean geometry. BUT euclidean geometry ain’t real, but only an interpretation of a perception of reality which also ain’t real. This is why Milo wolf was able to come to a better understanding of the nature of the universe, he used algebra, eschewing calculus. Or consider Ted Lumley’s question “is space making electrons or are electrons making space” YES!!! Space IS the summation of electrons. An interesting possibility is vector calculus. hyperphysics Wild Joyride

This holds true for any view of any problem. We project this dual view of reality onto reality, whereas, in fact, no duality exists. The Aristotelian brain fart. brain-fart

The point of this rambling incoherent dissertation is that the logic must be worked both ways. Consider the image, the ocean causes the waves, BUT the waves constitute the ocean. The waves and the ocean are only two perspectives of the sea, BOTH entirely inside the skull. Without the waves, the ocean cannot exist. Without the ocean the waves cannot exist. non-dualism

So I call reality (or any system) the “big hoochie koochie” composed of “little hoochie koochies”. The logic must be worked both ways.

Autistic? Savant


“We have two cognitive minds each with it’s own logical and perceptual processing, synchronous and modulated by intensity. (weighting)” – el Loco GringoAutistic ; a counterfeit concept.  Something defined by what it is not.  Defined in my terms it means “something unknown is wrong with the right mind or something unknown is wrong with the left mind, or something unknown is wrong with an unknown mind”  The scientific method at it’s best.  Crisp thinking.    Psychologists are idiots.  I pulled this from wikipedia.  I agree with this part “Savant syndrome is poorly understood”. The rest is bullshit.

Savant; Ah, now here’s something I can wrap my head around.  I think it’s safe to say it’s what is mistakenly called the subconscious.  I liken it to a puppy, not too bright, eager to please and with enormous collating abilities.  (more than it should have, actually)  Capable of bottom up thinking.

Idiot Savant; Aha! My puppy is wagging it’s tail, my pop peeper went ka-ching, “you’ve got mail”  A correlation has been made.  Do the word “feral children” ring a bell?  Point your peepers at this> Stupid is forever Feral children did not get imprinted during the critical period, no neuron trellis.

While researching savant I ran across this guyDr . Lee E. Warren, B.A., D.D.

Exerpt: What is an idiot savant?  Current research theories show that intelligence is non-local and not bound to the brain. Sometimes nature offers insight into a particular subject by presenting a baffling enigma and contradictory example. Intelligence’s contradictory enigma is the idiot-savant.

The word idiot usually refers to a simpleton, in contrast to the word “savant” in French that means “learned one.” Idiot savants are a subgroup of a class of people called idiots with an IQ of about 25.

http://www.plim.org/2idiots.html

So a idiot savant has no algorithm in place, for whatever reason, injury, genetic defect.  His left mind isn’t working.  A sociopath’s right mind isn’t working.  Savant, used by itself describes a person who can use his whole brain, Maslow calls them transcendents,  I call them nexialists, psychologists call them psychotic.  This dual core processor we have between our ears was evolved/a divine gift/created/unfolded in the now whatever to enable us to make sense of what’s outside the skull.  call it god if you want or the universe, cosmic standing wave, great mysterous whatever, doesn’t matter.  That’s entirely dependent on wetware (worldview)

Or I could be full of shit, I am crazy, don’t you know?

TRUTH


p-Truth, n-Truth, m-Truth

In my quest to explain bottom up thinking, I had thought to coin the term p-Truth (pseudo). Alas I find it is a well developed concept. Simply put, it is a truth that could be possible, but is not proven. I had always known that my mind discards erroneous and irrelevant data. A bullshit detector, if you will. This is the n-Truth (non), a truth that is not possible. IE you know something that “ain’t so”. There is also the m-Truth (mini), a truth which fits in with and validates the p-truth.

“truth = appropriate logic + relevant data” – el Loco Gringo

(I can’t believe that people write whole books on the topic, it’s so simple)

“truth is simple and beautiful, deceit is devious and ugly” – el Loco Gringo

Without reading any of these books, (a concept that requires a book is, by definition, devious and ugly) I’ll include links if you’re so inclined.

Starting from the bottom, there is no “truth” (unless you’re God, itself a p-truth).

Consider the field of genetics, DNA control was a p-truth, epigenitics is the new p-truth. And as we learn, we will discover new p-truths. (Either by serendipity or applying bottom up logic).

Following this from my perspective, my ANN is a truth, your ANN is a p-Truth, psychology is an n-Truth. IE to me; the ANN is the way my mind works (I’ve been there), it is probably the way everyone’s mind works, psychology isn’t possible.

Also to me; the concept that the fabric of the universe is governed by vectors in the 4th dimension is a p-truth. Einsteins concept of the space-time continuum is an n-truth. (I could be right, he’s wrong)

Also, to me, yoga is a truth (works for me). Yoga, TA, whole brain, Zen, TM etc are p-truths for others (could be). This then is what I mean by “seek your own truth”, seek that which works for you. Heed that little voice peeping in the corner of the echo box that says “they’re all full of shit” (the Scientific Method is an n-truth)

Thus there is no TRUTH, there is only truth, a p-truth as determined by the right algorithm setting the point on the left algorithm. It may be “the best answer to date”, “this idea seems to work for the moment” or even the less definitive “could be”.

Daimon


Daimon

“The problem is not that an individual has more than one personality, the problem is that he has any number but two.” – el Loco Gringo

Socrates often said that this inner voice, which many times deterred him from doing one thing, never incited him to do something else. That’s your right mind, your bullshit detector kicking in – el loco gringo.

Consider this idiot;

In 1993 David Spiegel, chair of the dissociative disorders committee for the 1994 DSM-IV, wrote that “there is a widespread misunderstanding of the essential psychopathology of this dissociative disorder, which is failure of integration of various aspects of identity, memory, and consciousness. The problem is not having more than one personality; it is having less than one personality.”

The asylum is being run by the inmates.

Everyone has two personalities, which when combined make a total of three methods of dealing with the world. Less that three is abnormal. More than three is pathological. Why is this not patently obvious to the meanest of intelligences?

These three methods being;

left hemisphere – skeptical

right hemisphere – receptive

combined – “we’ll see”

Why is this so difficult to understand?

Consider the case of “the 3 faces of Eve

She presents as a case of MPD. (the term dissociative disorder having not been an available condition at the time)

3 personalities, Eve white, Eve Black, and Jane. Eve Black was right hemisphere. Jane was left hemisphere. Eve White was synthesized. Her problem was that she could not operate in the combined mode so had to synthesize one. Why could no one pick this up after talking to her for 15 minutes? Why are people dumb?

This is no more complicated than you putting on your DrB hat when you come to work, your Teresa hat among friends and your combined hat among strangers. Where is the logic fail? Why all the words to describe a simple concept. Words strip the meaning out of understanding. Even my “bottom up thinking” is but an synonym in a futile attempt (among many) to describe a very simple concept. (nirvana, constructionist, connectness, insight, understanding, spirituality, soul, centering etc) It is not TRUTH, it is only sneaking up on the truth. Even in the skeptic mode it should be obvious that TRUTH is not possible, all we CAN have is the “best answer to date” or “this concept seems to work for the moment” or even the less definitive “could be”. That’s not even thinking, that’s adherence to dogma. Pre-Programming by someone else’s concepts. An entire civilization built up on the premise of not thinking, peopled by automatons pretending they’re smart. They have literally “sold their soul to the devil of dumb”. Why have they thrown away the marvelous gift of communication? Why do they not explore the “path less traveled”. Why do they eschew the wonders of themselves to live out their meaningless lives in this ant warren of society? Why are people dumb? Why have they cut the wires to their bullshit detector? Why is understanding considered un-nuanced? Why do they surrender their self worth. There is no TRUTH, there are only truths. Well enough of the frivolity, these are a couple of quotes from the attached article. walt

The daemonic is [that] unique pattern of sensibilities and powers which constitutes the individual as a self in relation to the world – Rollo May

“…archetypal patterns that constellate in an individual, resulting in a personality which, given the presence of a healthy ego, operates like a committee with ego as chair.4 In her model, the story and character of a particular archetype may be recognized by the ego as self-descriptive. That archetype may evince the quality of the daimon or genius”. – -Jean Shinoda Bolen (kinda wordy, but she’s right)

Miracle of music


Basic Miracle of Music

“The octave relationship is a natural phenomenon which has been referred to as the “basic miracle of music,…” …After the unison, the octave is the simplest interval in music. The human ear tends to hear both notes as being essentially “the same”, due to closely related harmonics. For this reason, notes an octave apart are given the same note name in the Western system of music notation—the name of a note an octave above A is also A Monkeys experience octave equivalency, and its biological basis apparently is an octave mapping of neurons in the auditory thalamus of the mammalian brain[6] and the perception of octave equivalency in self-organizing neural networks can form through exposure to pitched notes, ” – Wikepedia Logic Fail http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octave#Theory


“Philosophers have long commented on the ‘power’ of music in forging our character and connecting our souls to our inner nature, our society, and the world around us. Plato and Aristotle each invested considerable attention in describing the risks and rewards of exposing the young to varying modes (that is, styles) of music.” – Nolan Gasser
No, No, No!!! TOTAL BULLSHIT. As has been my experience when addressing any topic in which I become curious, I find that people think backwards. They are confusing cause and effect. The note is an interpretation of a perception (vector), itself heavily filtered, of reality. This is because they are working under the assumption that the time domain is reality, and have no concept of the frequency domain.

Hazy


Something hazy this way comes

Bottom up mind games. There are two ways of viewing everything. For instance, in any contest you can position yourself to win. Often unconsidered is the other option, position yourself so that the other person loses. Consider this mind game. There is a box into which we put an animal (that’s me) The mad scientist (bipolar manic/depressive) of this experiment is on the outside conducting experiments. (That’s me too) I can do that, this is MY game. Look at it as MPD if that helps. So the mad scientist picks me up turns me into a lizard and sticks me in the box. Jeez this is dull, all I can do is eat, attack, run, mate. There are four holes in the box permitting sensory input to the outside. They say feel, hear, see, smell. This is what I will later term bullshit as it has nothing to do with the problem at hand, which is “what is out there that I can eat, mate with, run from or attack?” (besides, I can’t read, nor can I count to 4). So I spend my what I will later call time running between the four holes looking for something to perform my limited repertoire of responses on. Or I can do what all lizards do most of the time, which is nothing. (told you it was boring) But the mad scientist has turned on a vibrator in sight of all four windows. Not a female sexual toy but something that causes broad spectrum vibrations. This kind has knobs and switches which would probably detract from the pleasure. But back to the lizard. Now I can see something out of the feel hole. There is nothing visible in the smell hole so I’ll reserve judgment. Please remember that all god’s critters got one talent they excel at, in the case of the lizard it is reserving judgment. Not as good at it as a cucumber, mind you, but they still give a respectable performance. Now the mad scientist turns the frequency knob. IT MOVED. It becomes visible through the hear hole, then disappears, then becomes visible through the see hole. Now the mad scientist turns on the smell. Clockwise turns on the mate me, counter-clockwise the eat me. Or since the lizard thinks primarily in the bottom up mode, and not bounded by the scientific method, a third choice is possible, it can go sideways, IE mate with and eat the object. The fourth choice eat and mate with is a non-starter. At least from a practical point of view, if not conceptually. Turning the phase control causes the perceived image to get larger and smaller so that the lizard can run or attack as appropriate. What is going on? Whatever the mad scientist is doing is causing vibrations to fluctuate causing various responses in the lizard. The input signals are viewed through different senses depending upon frequency. Sound is spread out in waves as is light but it’s still the same object transmitted by the same means. As this is psychology and not physics we can now stay inside the skull and contemplate how these signals are perceived and interpreted. The signals are received in the frequency domain and interpreted in the time domain. Now I can continue evolving to chimp. We are left with the same interpretation of the external world but have added mental capacity so we can visualize the interpretations of the perceptions of the vibrations and even begin to conceptualize. Watching the dusty land rover approach across the savanna I become fixated on the wheel. It’s a goodyear 225/16 steel belted radial. No whitewall. All that’s bullshit because I still can’t read but I can count to 4. It’s bigger than I am and previous experience has shown me that it’s usually imprudent to touch something that is bigger than I am and moving. I notice the valve stem is going up and down and round and round. It’s rotating. It’s impossible to make sense of it past that. And this thing’s got 4 of them. That’s about it. Now I’m human and I realize that this stem is describing a regular up and down motion which I can call a sign wave. If I stop the wheel I can read the Goodyear 225/16. It’s still bullshit but I can include it in the paper I’m doing on the yet to be invented trigonometry. But I forget that the wheel is in my head only. And in the end all that I have is a quantification of a interpretation of a perception of a filtered sense, of vibrations. It’s only a model of the wheel. For in the end, there is only the vibrator.

Bottom up


Tales from the inside


How do bottom up thinking work? The left hemisphere is a serial processor operating on p-truths. (Thinking) The right hemisphere is a parallel processor operating on n-truths. (musing) Each has an algorithm devoted to it’s own mode of operation. All things being equal, these algorithms are combined into what a psychologist would call a personality, in a protected part of the mind I call the ANN. In my case the left algorithm I call Walter, the right el Loco Gringo. Normally I am in the combined mode, (as are most people) Input data arrives in both hemispheres simultaneously, and each sets it’s own algorithm with the results. If the algorithms do not compare (does not compute) my bullshit detector goes off and I flip over to the el Loco Gringo mode. If they consistently compare I flip over to the Walter mode. This “flip” does not happen with most people. (I call them idiots) In the Walter mode I am receptive to the input. In the el Loco Gringo mode I am skeptical. The mode is merely which algorithm is dominant and which is sub-dominant. Most people will not switch. A MPD can’t switch. (non-integrated) The switch is seamless. (½ second) It’s really nothing more than you putting on your DrB hat when you come to work, your Teresa hat at home and you combined hat in other situations. (both receptive and skeptical)

Real time bottom up thinking is cumbersome. It requires a mirror (non-idiot) to communicate with. As it is necessary to the process for these concepts (patterns) to be communicated to become relevant to survival so the algorithms can be set. To an idiot this comes across as a rambling, incoherent dissertation. Communication is futile. The algorithms do not get set.

Background bottom up thinking is the normal mode. The right hemisphere is always correlating data while awake. When it gets a hit it communicates it to the left hemisphere so both algorithms can be set. P-truth equates to n-truth. This is called insight, or epiphany. Curiosity triggers this mode, prioritizing the data that meet the criteria. Most of the letters I send to you come from this mode. Just kind of “time to write that letter” on “tales from the inside”. I don’t spend any time contemplating these letters. I just sit down at the keyboard and bang away. Another instance, I got curious about what el Loco Gringo was protecting and came up with this;

This is the Right hemisphere version; “The Essence of Me”

“What is this thing that el Loco Gringo so fiercely defends? It is a tiny vortex that has formed in the temporal river. It exists for the briefest of moments, then is reabsorbed. It strives to balance the forces of the ripples within and the ripples without, maintaining an ethereal form that allows connectedness with the universe and the individual me. It defends me from those who seek to remove this individuation and connectedness. Sometimes doldrums, sometimes rapids. Under the tree limbs and around the rocks. The river has no purpose. It just flows from high ground to low, with no whence or whither, only anon. it obeys the law of the universe, negentropy, time’s arrow. And in the end, this vortex loses form. “The moving finger writes, and having writ, moves on” – Omar Khayyam. Throughout it all, el Loco Gringo never lost the wonder. It is the essence of me. In the end, there is only the river. All is as it should be.”

This is the left;

This is my mind, and mine alone. I like it just as it is. It has guided and protected me through a turbulent life. It has shown me the beauty and the ugliness of the world in all it’s glory and depravity. I have marveled at the richness of the world and the people in it. It has given me a most rewarding journey. It is a fine mind indeed. And I am proud of it, so very proud. It has served me well.”

The algorithms compare, the algorithms have been set. This is the “best answer to date”. The right’s answer is almost poetic. (interestingly, I had to look up the anagram for entropy, also interesting is use of the word law, singular) The left’s is bottom line. This is the two perspectives on the question. Both are right. When Walter’s life becomes too turbulent the ANN slams el Loco Gringo into the breech.

Or as Jill Bolte Taylor put it’, “The we inside of me”

In the dreaming mode bottom up thinking replays previous experiences in holodeck fashion to see if better solutions can be found. If a hit is registered, it resets the algorithms. The snippets one recalls upon awakening is only the buffer being cleared so dreams don’t get confused with reality.

Humor is the realization that you should have been operating in the other mode. IE you were using inappropriate logic to address the concept proposed.  Simply, your mind has been tricked.  Like tickling the mind. (That last was an insight)

Aggregation


Bottom up thinking – a process of aggregation of ALL+Perceived data which does not fail top down thinking and having found a “best answer to date”, the algorithms can be set, become in agreement and an hypothesis (guess) can be formed which remains a p-truth until more data becomes available. (Long sentence, I’m sorry, but it’s all one concept) This p-truth is that time is an artifact. (which raises the question “of what?” which, in and of itself, raises the philosophical question “who gives a shit?”

It is not TRUTH, but only a p-truth on the path to TRUTH which will can never be achieved, we can only sneak up on it, in the sense of Newton’s concept of approaching infinity. The “of what” question alluded to earlier would suggest a negentropic universe, at which time this p-truth becomes a m-truth. Addressing this must wait until the “time as an artifact” passes the scientific method. (Although it wouldn’t hurt to mention it so as to get credit) As to “who gives a shit?” probably nobody. Why does the mind do this? Consider the following from a few good men.

You want answers? Lt. Daniel Kaffee:
I think I’m entitled. Col. Nathan R. Jessep:
You want answers?! Lt. Daniel Kaffee:
I want the truth! Col. Nathan R. Jessep:
You can’t handle the truth!

Our minds cannot handle the truth. Reality is chaotic, in both senses of the word, and is imperfectly sensed, heavily filtered, collated in the right hemisphere, and quantized in the left hemisphere so as to be presented in a usable fashion. An m-truth which supports this theory is the “magic of music”, worthy of a paper in itself. I’ll have to show you this, this will blow your mind. Think of the spinning cylinder I mentioned earlier. Entire disciplines have been built up, trigonometry, Fourier transforms, mathematics, musical notation etc. to describe this phenomenon, but it’s still only ways to quantify what is, after all, only a spinning cylinder, even this concept flawed by the inadequacy of of our sensory input. This goes past the shadows of Plato’s cave, this is shadows of shadows of shadows. A quantification of a perception of what is seen through a filter. But, in the end, it’s still only a limited perception of a spinning cylinder.

Why can no one see these big gaping holes in the logic of the scientific method? It’s like mental masturbation. It’s insanity. The scientific method cannot prove or discover anything, it can only disprove. It is negative by nature, as it should be, a check on bottom up thinking. A process of elimination to counter and augment the process of accumulation. It should be an adjunct to bottom up thinking but it’s use has been to reinforce dogma. It does not seek truth, it attacks new concepts, as it should. We must have good reason to abandon a concept which has survival value. Why does no one realize that knowledge is only guesses, IE best answers to date? One possibility is that the ability to do bottom up thinking has been bred out of the population, like left-handedness, and for the same reason. Indoctrination techniques do not work on left handed people and bottom up thinkers. This would mean that SNAP has been bred out of the population. People with SNAP are .07% of the population. 200 in US

Which brings me full circle. Why are people dumb? Why can nobody balance their algorithms? My bullshit detector is almost continuously triggered. Bottom up thinking is tedious and tiresome and does not seem to effect my dealings with society. I choose not to, I choose reclusion.

The exclamation of discovery is not “eureka” but “that’s odd”. And nobody can see the “odd”.  Your observation that I am on a mountaintop is astute, but the view IS marvelous, don’t you know?.

Mind Time


The unconsidered factor


Are you thinking? <stop the clock: time is 00:000> NO!! You are reading. The mind is not multi-tasking. You can read or think but not read and think. Your mind is skipping down an algorithm to see if there is a match (preprogrammed response) for someone asking if you are thinking. <advance clock to 00:005 (½ second)> You have reached a decision point on the algorithm. The mind slides the time forward ½ second so that you have the ILLUSION of continuity. Lets say you decide I’m strato-cumulus and decide to read another article. You toss this in the trash and pick up another article. The point is that during this ½ second you are without volition. Do not confuse this with a reflex which is measured in fractions of a second. Or with a reaction which is <1/2 second. This is a reaction which takes 1/2 seconds. So lets say you decide to keep reading <start the clock: time is 00.005> data continues to be read into a FIFO buffer to be processed as reactions points are triggered. After, say 5 minutes you lay the article down and reach a decision point to ponder what you have read. The FIFO buffer empties and is processed. <start the clock time is 05:005> access left hemisphere 3 sec <05:035> access right hemisphere 3 sec <05:065> return to algorithm ½ sec <05:070> <stop the clock> Up till now we still have not done any thinking, we have only searched our mind for possible matches. Bear in mind that during this 7 seconds we are without volition. WE DO NOT NORMALLY THINK REAL TIME. This has extreme negative survival value in an environment where there are nasty critters that want to eat us. If we decide to actually think the time would be indeterminate. (head in the clouds, penny for you thoughts, daydreaming is thinking real time)

Lion LunchIt is impossible for a creature that thinks real time to have survived to evolve into humans.   Charlie Chimp would be Lion Lunch if he stood around with his head up his ass for 7 seconds.  He wouldn’t have any offspring.  There would be no Stanford psychologists for el Loco Gringo to make fun of, and that would make el Loco Gringo very sad.

But, you may protest, we don’t go through all these steps. No, but the mind does. So when do we think? Well, if you’re sitting at you desk in an air conditioned office and there isn’t a lion prowling the halls looking for lunch, you’re probably safe. Most thinking, however, is done in dreaming, where various scenarios are played out so the optimal solution can be used to modify the appropriate decision point on the algorithm, so that when you are operating in your normal environment you don’t have to have a 7 second pause between question and answer. These dreams are in full color and indistinguishable from reality. That’s why they have to be flushed upon awakening.

Time is, after all only in our head.  It is our mind’s way of interpreting motion.

“If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a thousand pictures” – el Loco Gringo

If you will begin with certainties, you shall end in doubts, but if you will content to begin with doubts, you shall end in almost certainties.” -Francis Bacon

Like seeing that the sky is blue. I go outside and look up “Yup, it’s blue” Yet how can I explain this to a blind person? Lets start with “what is blue?” Oops!, but blue is an artifact, blue ain’t real, it is just an interpretation of real.  Then it explodes into physics, optics, astronomy, math, etc. And, to the person I am trying to explain it to, he is left with “incomplete logic trees” incomprehensible and obscure. He cannot see the “blue sky”. The mind is simple once you accept that it is indeterminate.

RatBrain2 explains in one minute the basics of everything I am trying to say. The mind is a self programing amorphous mass of neurons. That’s a fact, it’s not a theory. Try to see the “Blue Sky”. It is a tiny step from seeing the Blue Sky to tripling mankind’s cognitive ability. To be “more than we can be”. If you can see the Blue Sky, you can understand the mind. Those of you who are into whole brain, non-dualism, meditation, TM, yoga etc. should be able to see the blue sky sooner.  These mind expanding methods are not THE answers but each is AN answer.

We’re going to start with a self programming amorphous mass of neurons. Instead of 300,000 (rat brained robot) it will have 10 billion. We will slowly build it up to explain how it functions, how it can be crippled, and how to unlock it. This paper will not cover chemical effects, hormones, specialized brain structures, brain injuries or any such. I will leave that to those who are interested in such irrelevancies. I do not need to know how to build a car to be able to drive it. And that’s all I am attempting. No more. No less.

If you get disorientated at any point in this paper, watch the video again and get your feet back on the ground. Do not be embarrassed, social conditioning is strong and difficult to overcome. I will try to go slow as I am trying to explain constructivist concepts in reductionist lingo. el Loco Gringo will hold your hand and guide you through the morass. It is not your intellect that prevents you from seeing the blue sky, it is the social conditioning which has crushed creativity. Even Kevin Warwick, who built the rat brain robot, cannot see the blue sky. Once you can see the blue sky, the rest is easy, even obvious. copy and paste the below link into your browser

We will start by examining how the mind really works and build up to emotional aspects such as centering, educational blocks and spiritual inhibitions.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.” -Thomas Chalkley

FrustrationFrustration

Why can no one see this?

Is everyone really insane?

Why can no one see the blue sky?  Why can no one make this intuitive leap.  That the brain basically is a

self programing amorphous mass of neurons

IE the mind is a programmed brain.

Why is the significance of this overlooked?  This is the greatest discovery in the history of man, and it is being dismissed as a method to maybe gain some understanding of old timers disease.  This is the E=MC^2 of the mind.  and nobody cares.  even Kevin Warick can’t see what he’s done.  As Einstein asked “is everyone else crazy, or am I?”

Start with the neuron. This is where everything must start. It is the beginning. It is the alpha. It is the doorway. It is the key to understanding the mind. ANY thought pattern concerning the mind that doesn’t start here is insane.

Applying reductionist (top down) thinking to the neuron yields the neurologist. Perfectly OK. The neuron is determinate. Results are accurate and predictable. The scientific method at it’s best.

Applying constructionist (bottom up) thinking to the neuron yields the ANN. Again perfectly OK. The mind is indeterminate. The results are accurate and predictable. The lateral method at it’s best.

Applying top down thinking to the mind yields insanity. When building a house you don’t start with the roof and work your way down. You will end up with a trash pile of rubbish (psychology) which collapses under it’s own weight. You must start with the foundation.

Step back and forget everything you know about psychology, in fact just forget everything you think you know. Try to get to the mental state of the infant, un-indoctrinated, centered, no blocks or taboos, no preconceptions, no knowledge. Point your peepers at this problem and you will see that “when you put neurons together they connect and start communicating”. Why? Because that’s what neurons do. That’s how they evolved. If you want to know how, you ask a neurologist and he’ll give you an accurate answer. RatBrain2 demonstrates the first 3 steps in the constructionist thought process that will lead to an accurate understanding of the mind. The ANN is accurate and predictable. It becomes obvious. I’ll give you a hint on step 4. What is the robot doing? IE it is an amorphous mass of neurons which have connected and started communicating and is doing what?

“Appropriate logic applied to relevant data yields truth” – el Loco Gringo

Think like da Vinci.

Yes Al, everybody really is insane. Wish you were here.

Ratbrain

Watch ratbrain-2 and ponder the significance of what is happening. Keep watching it until your left hemisphere gets frustrated trying to make sense out of it and turns it over to the right hemisphere. The left hemisphere will keep saying “So what?”  Watch it again to discover “what”.  You will have an epiphany, a flash of insight that will illuminate reality like a flare going off over the field of battle. Indeterminate problems become simple using constructionist thinking. Look for the blue sky. This is my nirvana.

You will notice an irreverent tone in this paper, very unprofessional. It is intentional. Professionalism crushes creativity.

Intro to CT


Intro to CT

This may come as a shock, but I am beginning to think that I may have been wrong. If true, this will be a first. I had made the comment “I don’t see the survival value in dumb”. But there may have been at one time in our evolution. Think of Ardi (creationists worst nightmare, we didn’t evolve from chimps, chimps evolved from us) in the paleolithic conscious constructionist thinking (CT) would have a definite negative survival value. Ergo selection (or de-selection if you prefer) would have favored restricting constructionist thinking to the un-conscious, ie dreaming. This is no longer the case, however.

Consider;

CT requires the ability to hold several seemingly disparate concepts in the mind simultaneously. Not to be confused with the Orwellian “double think” in which several actually disparate and mutually exclusive concepts can be held in the mind comfortably. For instance, accepting the data presented in ratbrain-2 and and the tenets of psychology simultaneously strikes me as insane. One of them is obviously WRONG, For instance; I worked with a geophysical company that was manned by fundamentalists. They “knew” the earth was created 4,000 years ago. That was a “truth”. At the same time their job consisted of classifying rotifers to properly determine how many millions of years ago a geological structure was formed. That was also a “truth”. When queried they responded “I couldn’t understand secular humanism” (They’re right on that.) Think of CT as parallel processing. Hold that thought.

Reductionist Thinking limits the answer to what is actually “the best answer to date” as determined by CT, it dictates a single answer or conclusion for rapid response. It is not THE truth, but only A truth. One of many. Think of RT as serial processing. Hold that thought.

I am aware of only a handful of people who are capable of “switch hitting” IE volitionally able to go from RT to CT. Hold that thought.

CT is described as an “enhanced state” of consciousness. I don’t see it that way, it’s only different from RT. Hold that thought.

Many meditative techniques claim to enable one to enter this enhanced state, probably true, what they describe is what I experience. A sense of being one with the universe, (as perceived by me) a connectedness with my fellow man, a wholeness. Hold that thought.

One difference between RT and CT is that with RT you may “know” the answer but with CT you “understand” the question. BIG difference. Hold that thought.

As soon as my mind determines that the RT “truth” is bullshit it switches to CT (if I’m interested) else I just change the subject or inform them they are an idiot. Hold that thought.

I am aware of my mind, In the sense I am aware of any part of my body. I understand this is unusual. Hold that thought.

Consider the video on Jill Taylor “A stroke of insight”. She was a neuroscientist who was forcibly dumped into CT (right hemisphere) by a stroke which disabled much of her left hemisphere. (her mind went to “plan B”). She eloquently and effusively describes her experience, one result of which was an “explosion” of creativity. Consider, she was a person who had studied the workings of the mind for 30 years AND WAS NOT EVEN AWARE THAT THAT LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS EXISTED. WOW! She “knew” the answer before, she “understands” the question now. (you’ve got to ask the right question if you expect a reasonable answer). She is now a “switch hitter”, she can step into either mode of thought. She describes the experience as “overpowering”. It’s not, she’s just never been there before. It’s just bottom up thinking, asking the right question.

And where was I wrong? Dumb has an inherited component.

Museing


“Spontaneity is the right mind tossing out a suggestion, it is up to the left mind to determine it’s practicality. “ – el Loco Gringo

Our mind only processes data as it relates to real life experience. In speaking with another person about any topic, it then becomes part of our real life experience and will be processed. Whereas before, my real life experience was trying to understand why people reject logic and facts, now my real life experience is the workings of the mind. It is being processed. My understanding this requires that I acquire a better visualization method. “make it so” . I am starting to see the mind in visual symbols, almost impossible to put into words. See if you can put this into words. Picture the unANN as an amorphous (un-ordered) liquid (sic) the ANN “poofs” it causing ripples (in 4 dimensions)

BTW Are you aware there is a school of philosophy which postulates that a concept for which there is no word is nonsense in and of itself, and defines the person as insane? WOW!!! and they think I’m crazy

Musing

Musing – Contemplation; meditation. – Free Dictionary

Muse – Absorbed in one’s thoughts

Muse – (n) a seer

Muse – Greek Mythology Any of the nine daughters of Mnemosyne and Zeus, each of whom presided over a different art or science.

Muse>Domain>Emblem

Calliope>Epic poetry>Writing tablet

Clio>History>Scrolls

Erato>Lyric poetry> Cithara

Euterpe>Music>Aulos

Melpomene>Tragedy>Tragic mask

Polyhymnia>Choral>poetry Veil

Terpsichore>Dance>Lyre

Thalia>Comedy>Comic mask

Urania>Astrology>Globe and compass

Delphic oracle, the most important oracle in the classical Greek world, The oracle consulted with the muses to answer questions of importance.

I am going to use the word musing for what is happening in the right hemisphere, thinking isn’t really appropriate. Do you notice the close correlation between what the muses did and what we think we know of the right hemisphere? (taking into account the culture differences)

I don’t think the muses were myth in the strictest sense of the word. And there really were oracles. I posit that the muses were a mental framework (similar to the ANN) that the oracles used to do bottom up thinking.

Posit – to lay down or assume as a fact or principle

If true, I am the Maylene Oracle.

When I get curious about something, the answers start coming. I may be full of shit, but it sets the algorithms, (top down thinking) for better or worse, with the best answer to date.

As far as the right hemisphere is concerned, the point of all this is that there is no point. There is no goal, no conclusion, no target, no “scientific method”. When I get curious about something my right hemisphere starts “free associating” with the contents. It doesn’t assume anything. And there’s a lot there. The entire universe (As I have perceived it) Every thing I have seen, experienced, felt, thought, heard is there. All knowledge that I have ever acquired is there. This is what is not working in most peoples minds. This is the insight, the epiphany, the bullshit detector. This is the way the mind is supposed to work. And it has been crippled. The wires have been cut to the light bulb. And the muses are dismissed as myth. This cutting causes the beast, the hollow man, the abyss, the superficial man, the p-zombie or whatever term you wish to use. A cultural lobotomy. What would society be like with a thousand da Vincis, a million, a billion, 6 billion? Maybe there will be a 100th monkey happening.

3 Faces of Eve


Multiple Personality
(Disorder?)

“The problem is not that an individual has more than one personality, the problem is that he has any number but two.” – el Loco Gringo

Well sure, everyone has MPD, but I don’t know if I would call it a disorder. Every one has two algorithms (three if you count the tandem operation) I don’t see how there could be more. Probably psychologist induced. Need to deal with the “here and now”

As I have mentioned, it is not possible for a person to have more than 3 personalities, dominant, sub-dominant and Combined and that any others are manufactured by the psychiatrist/psychologist. A “real” personality will be on the algorithm with a 1/2 second response. (it is in fact the algorithm.) Notice the 3 second pause (when switching to Eve White) on the attached file. This shouldn’t be happening if it were a real personality. (It’s a real interview, you can hear the crinoline rustle when Eve Black walks.) Eve has, in fact, only two personalities instead of the normal three. This is why she is reserved and restrained, she has to synthysize the combined personality. i.e. She can be A or B but not A and B.

I like that picture, that’s how I view everyone, the center one is the combined, the left and the right are the dominant and sub-dominant. (Eve Black and Jane  or walt and el Loco Gringo, Eve white is synthesized) I have run into one other person like this, A or B which were unaware of each other, there was no combined personality. She would tell different things to different people and believe them. Heres another nobel for you.

In BLUEBIRD: Deliberate Creation of Multiple Personality by Psychiatrists, Dr. Ross provides proof, based on 15,000 pages of documents obtained from the CIA under the Freedom of Information Act, that the Manchurian Candidate is fact, not fiction. He describes the experiments conducted by psychiatrists to create amnesia, new identities, hypnotic access codes (hooks), and new memories in the minds of experimental subjects.

Reference the dogtrack video and note the 3 second pause when the ANN accesses the unANN. Also note the hook installed with “forhead, chest, elbow”.

Intuition


a counterfeit concept

Having yet to hear you utter anything stupid, I checked out intuition here> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intuition_(Bergson)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intuition_(Bergson)

First paragraph>”Bergson introduces two ways in which an object can be known: absolutely and relatively. Pertaining to each mode of knowledge is a method through which it can be gained. The latter’s method is what Bergson calls analysis, while the method of intuition belongs to the former.”

He immediately lets the Aristotelian Brain Fart. He’s wrong, as is his main antagonist Kant. In this case the answer is not A or B, or Both but neither. What is a twisted, byzantine labyrinth of illogic becomes quite simple if one can only accept that we have two cognitive minds, each with it’s own logic and process. A very complex problem is no sweat if handled in two methods by two processors and the results correlated. The first process is binary, the second process is Boolean. While the left mind is concerned with (pseudo) TRUTH, the right mind is concerned with truths. (consistencies) Discounting the reticulum weighting to keep it simple. There are four things involved, consistent, inconsistent, not consistent, and not inconsistent. (we’re Boolean, remember?) And the difference is not semantic.

The conscious is me. walt, the subconscious is el Loco Gringo

They both interface through Walter. Since most people already know who their “me” is, I’ll speak only of the subconscious. I picture mine as having the intelligence and temperament of a puppy with enormous storage and collating abilities. When I get curious about something, he starts sniffing around. Conscious-subconscious interface. The relationship between “me” and eLG is not unlike that between you and the computer on your desk. If you get curious about something you turn to your computer and google it. The alternative is to drive down to the library and look it up. Choosing the alternative strikes me as insane. Yet this is what is happening in most peoples mind. They’ve unplugged the computer. Insight, dreams, images etc is nothing more than “you’ve got mail”. An attention getter. A correlation has been made. IE here’s something you need to look at.

Like a puppy, eLG knows I’m looking for something, he doesn’t know why, nor does he care. But he’s found it, and sending a “you’ve got mail” in the best way he can. A puppy can’t speak, and ain’t too bright, but it does know where what you’re looking for is. So I follow the puppy, I don’t try to lead it. If I’m going in the right direction the puppy wags it’s tail, if I.m going in the wrong direction the puppy sits. (metaphorically speaking) This isn’t thinking, or reasoning or logic. It’s just following the path of least resistance. (If you’ve ever had a hungry cat, you know exactly what I’m talking about.)

Consider:The first image is a city reconstructed with juxtaposed photographs taken from every viewpoint and angle. The reconstruction can never give us the dimensional value of walking through the actual city.

But it is not necessary to walk through the city to resolve a particular issue. The right mind has it’s own logic, distinct from the left. My puppy. He ain’t too bright, but he does have a plan, simple as it is.

My puppy doesn’t have to walk through the entire city, he only has to walk through the part of the city I am interested in, and I am not interested in consistencies or inconsistencies, only non-inconsistencies and maybe non-consistencies if I’m getting metaphysical. (how many ways do you need to prove a lion is dangerous?)

And why does he walk? Because that’s what puppies (neurons) do. And if the doorman doesn’t let the puppy out occasionally, he’s going to shit on the carpet.

Below are a couple of examples. What I thought was Italian, seems to be Romanian. Why?

“education put the sub in sub-conscious” – el Loco Gringo

There is a large group of people incapable of independent thought. Ayn Rand calls them second-handers. Robert Wilson calls them robots, Ted calls them stupidos.  Geoff calls them parrots, Richard calls them hollow, Pauline calls them one-dimensional. I call them idiots. The why is a separate issue, but it’s basically social conditioning, primarily education and religion during the critical period of childhood development.

There are actually four logic paths to consider. (Our bipolar (Aristotelian) view of the world limits us to two). They are left (top down), right (bottom up) neither or both. The occidental world is predominately left, the oriental right, the Mideast neither. And there are separately derived logic trees fractal (African) and circular (meso-American) In other words, all we are talking about here is one family of logic trees. The top down/bottom up, occidental/oriental, determinate/indeterminate, left/right, male/female, yin/yang, scientific method/yoga, serial/parallel, depression/manic (bi-polar), individuation/oneness, hell/nirvana, conscious/sub-conscious etc. family. I can’t speak to the others. But idiots are all left with no right. (In our society). I posit that the bipolar has more yin/yang than he knows what to do with. He has allowed idiots to become aware of his ability to muse.

Are you aware that our world view is mirrored in the orient? IE they have oriental idiots who are all right and no left? They use yoga not to gain nirvana but to gain direction? (top down) They have no problem with whereness and whenness but the scientific method eludes them. What is so complicated? With some synergy it becomes simple. Why are people dumb? The mind is incredible, and it has been mutilated. Evolution (or god or destiny, it doesn’t matter) has given the gift of awareness to man and he has thrown away the gift and is playing with the pretty paper and ribbons. I’m getting frustrated again (a silent scream).

I have the native ability to use bottom up thinking. IE I am bipolar manic/depressive. The above example was shown in the top down mode. There is however another perspective, bottom up. It all has to do with how you slice and dice the input.

In the top down mode (binary, serial) the input IS grouped as:

left/right OR top down/bottom up OR yin/yang OR determinate/indeterminate OR etc, etc, etc.

In the bottom up mode (Boolean, parallel) the input CAN BE grouped as:

left AND top down AND male AND yin AND depression AND individuation AND hell etc., etc. OR right AND bottom up AND female AND yang AND manic AND oneness ANDnirvana etc, etc.

In the top down mode I use thinking and intelligence. Fast and easy, but un-nuanced

In the bottom up mode I use musing and SNAP. Slow and cumbersome, but more holistic Weighting is also a factor, an aggregate and accumulate process of biasing.

Consider Charlie Chimp, a hominid roaming the savanna in the paleolithic. He is in the bottom up mode musing on bonking Polly Protohuman again. His left gives a quick and definitive YES but his right says, MAYBE NOT, there’s the weighting to consider. IE the last time he bonked Polly, how many times did the alpha male hit him, how hard and for how long. He be musing here. Then a lion leaps out from behind a bush, and he drops out of this metaphysical bullshit mode (It takes at least 7 seconds to respond in the bottom up mode, In case you haven’t thought about it, that’s not a good thing) into the top down mode (>1/2 second) and hauls ass. It boils down to applying appropriate logic to relevant data.

Thus the question of the bipolar personality has more to do with the ability to balance power with finesse. You must ask the right question if you want a reasonable answer.  Bipolar asks the wrong question.  In fact, bipolar is a counterfeit concept.  It can be caused by genius, chemical imbalance, injury, hormones, etc.  In short, they’re clueless.

Basically, my sub-conscious ain’t sub. I am fully aware of the thought processes going on. The above description is not theory or conjecture. That IS how I view the symbolic relationships in the right mind. Or more accurately, that is how my right mind views the relationships. The entire concept of there being a condition called bipolar strikes me as silly. Consider one of the classic symptoms of bipolar. “can’t stick to topic”, or “flits from subject to subject with no apparent relationship.” This IS the bottom up thinking process in action, as the right mind searches for possible co-relations between maybe relevant information. This logic train was probably instigated by the psychologist, and the patient, thinking he is talking to an “expert” is doing his best to respond. If he doesn’t have a ready made response he flips into the bottom up mode. The reason an idiot can’t follow this process is not because the patient is crazy, but because the idiot is stupid. The idiot then “diagnoses” the patient as bipolar, tells him he’s crazy, and puts him on dopazine. By now, he is crazy. I am not saying that everyone who babbles incoherently is sane. I’m sure that there are a bunch of looney tunes out there. But most of my emotional problems stem from having to deal with idiots, stupid people doing stupid things for stupid reasons. Unless a bipolar can find a non-idiot psychologist, capable of dealing with his concepts on his terms, his prospects are slim. Until then, it’s better to keep the gift to himself.

It ain’t real


Data Mining

is a useful model for explaining bottom up thinking. It seeks out and makes squishy correlations between seemingly unrelated data. (Nexialism) Using this model the computer operator is the conscious (left mind) the computer is the sub-conscious, (right mind) (data storage and analysis) and the computer screen is the interface (GUI) The brain fart occurs when the operator confuses the picture on the screen for the data, which in this case is ASCII (computer code).

IE the computer screen shows an interpreted sub-set of the data. But you must ask a question (curiosity) for the computer to respond (insight, intuition) with dreams, or symbols that it puts on the screen. A person who shows this ability in front of a psychiatrist is called Bipolar Manic/Depressive and the plug is pulled on the computer with dopazine or smarticide. In the mind this process is transparant to the user.

This is what is actually happening in the computer (right mind, bottom up thinking) the left mind interprets this and puts a picture on the screen that you can make sense of.  What this interpretation looks like depends on the software installed.  (wetware(imprinting + learning))  The data range being analyzed determines the tunnel.  BUT, unless you’re god,  both the ASCII (perception of reality) and the picture on the tube (interpretation of reality) are subsets of the data base.  (REALITY)

All this discussion of quantum mechanics, parallel universes, nirvana etc is quite literally

For a complete analysis of this problem see here  Calculus Mr Ted

So to answer the question “is the perception real or is the interpretation real?”  the answer is NO!

The following is from Oracle, the premier data mining technology. Although quite primitive compared to the mind, it is still pretty awesome.

Oracle

Generally, data mining (AKA bottom up thinking) is the process of analyzing data from different perspectives and summarizing it into useful information – information that can be used to increase revenue, cuts costs, or both. Data mining software is one of a number of analytical tools for analyzing data. It allows users to analyze data from many different dimensions or angles, categorize it, and summarize the relationships identified. Technically, data mining is the process of finding correlations or patterns among dozens of fields in large relational databases called data warehouses, ( AKA right mind)

Supervised Learning has the goal of predicting a value for a particular

characteristic, or attribute that describes some behavior. For example: (AKA curiosity)

The attribute being predicted is called the Target Attribute.

Unsupervised Learning has the goal of discovering relationships and patterns

rather than of determining a particular value. That is, there is no target attribute. (AKA sub-conscious free running)

Examples S1, S2, S3 illustrate Binary Classification – the model predicts one of

two target values for each case (that is, places each case into one of two

classes, thus the term Classification).

Example S4 illustrates Multiclass Classification – the model predicts one of

several target values for each case.

Example S5 illustrates Regression – the model predicts a specific target value for

each case from among (possibly) infinitely many values.

Example S6 illustrates One-class Classification, also known as Anomaly

Detection – the model trains on data that is homogeneous, that is all cases are in

one class, then determines if a new case is similar to the cases observed, or is

somehow “abnormal” or “suspicious”.

Example U1 illustrates Clustering – the model defines segments, or “clusters” of

a population, then decides the likely cluster membership of each new case.

Example U2 illustrates Associations – the model determines which cases are

likely to be found together.
