Aggridant Magic

If you don't have a really good feeling for what an aggridant is, you're missing out on one of Abe Maslow's best observations.  Start with the Dove chicken experiments in the cafeteria situation and find out the magical quality of the good choosers--the ones who chose what was good for everyone.

If you are like most, you have missed 95% of what Maslow had to offer us.  And most of you still use the "famous triangle" to describe the hierarchy of values.  But if you dig a little, you'll discover that the Blackfeet taught Maslow in 1938 that the triangle should be flipped upside-down to demonstrate Maslow's values hierarchy, as in "You don't grow a tree from the top."  The idea is that we come into the world as one defenseless child and become contributing adults by social means and links, which also teach us what we are good at, etc.  And it all ends up at "SELF-actualizatiion" which means that we have something unique to give the whole.  Ever heard of APTITUDES? We have forgotten those.  But without knowing your "down to the metal" aptitudes, you don't even know which is your shooting eye, and might have been costing yourself lots of points along the way.

Most folks think of SA as sitting atop the "famous pyramid" looking out on the world as some sort of ruler, but what it really boils down to is what you and you alone have in your bag of tricks to offer the world and what you will work hard at giving to the world.  It's the givers who count, just like Teddy Yellowfly taught Uncle Abe in Alberta years ago.  Or as Ben Cohen put it, "The community supports that business that supports the community."   If you think only of what you can take from the world, you are no aggridant class human being.

Next, I'll tell you a little story about some aggridant prisoners in the Korean war and a little about their magic.

Start using the word if you want to make some useful change.  And watch for curious eyes.

Internet Hierarchies

The most productive hierarchies are built on idiosyncratic vocabularies.

Operating System Engineers

A stack must converge with a user's world.   One builds from the bottom up.  Else, it's just throwing out trash from the sewer and gumming up the works. Use Maslow and build from the bottom, ignoring the trash floating above.  If I don't need, why burden me with it?

Aggridants and Oaths - Lukasiewicz Loadings

Divulge information if B-gravity > D-gravity.  Simple.  Very simple.
See Maslow's B-values on this.  If it isn't quite beautiful, think about it.  If it isn't quite beautiful and questionably just, pause.  If unbeautiful and unjust, is it funny? 

If unfunny, duty is to the many.

Google and the Aggridant

Google search on aggridant or aggridants is interesting.  The word seems to be useful in terms of the B-value of Uniqueness and this should be added to the appropriate Pearltrees.

Need to add "Abraham Maslow" herein to check the Newsreel and wire the word better to "Abraham Maslow"

If you triangulate with an aggridant, you will increase your odds of bounary penetration.

Signal to noise, Shannon guys. Signal to noise.

Discrimination in many dimensions.

Get to work.
Hempel's "nomic nexus" is Web 2.0, get it? How far does it go before it escapes into the future? Or how far until we resonate it with B-reality?

Looking at a world sociogram of conversations would be interesting, and could provide hierarchical anonymity in the right hands.
