General Theory of Improvement

The general theory of Improvement – problems and solutions

The following is a biological definition of and overview of problems, solutions, and improvements.

The following production is theoretical ideological version of a possible mathematical understanding of the subjects promised to be expounded on in this film. This film has the underlying transformative power to adjust your thoughts to greater corresponding consciousness, basically meaning
it will cause increased realism, where thought equates to life and world more.

Before I outline this conceptual work, I will first state threes laws
1. Life exists in relation to the total systems it can encounter and interact with.
2. Survival depends on maintenance of a system that is in a sense alive, in an internal/external and even constructing/manipulating the internal/external.
3. Precise effects caused by precise causes, can be avoided by eliminating the cause. Meaning, effects can be prevented or allowed depending on how the cause is allowed or prevented to exist.

I start by going into the main ideas by asking What is human dysfunction, weakness, disability, failure?

A biological imperative of living systems is to sustain survival, as so far the living system is adapted to survive in a wide range of possible environments. Dysfunction is equate to kind of weakness in the system, wherein the attribute or operation of the system impedes or severely lessens the chances of survival of the life-forms.

We thus think of improvement as a kind of engineering or adaptation that takes place where in the gene-pool or environment there is the elimination of that which impedes survival. This is basic biological Darwinism, wherein improvement is identified, and improvement is conceptualized as any process that eliminates any operational or property weakness, that lowers the chances of survival. In other words, improvement increases chances of survival, and decreases chance of death. This improvement is really just in increase in strength of survivability, which I propose can be mathematically  quantified.  

The first biological weakness that comes to mind, is the fact human beings can't survive on earth, if an asteroid of a considerable mass impacts the surface and engulfs the atmosphere which we breath, and overturns the surface which we have mobility and life-dependence on.  

This proves that a population of biological systems is not inherently likely to have increased risk of death purely on biological operations and properties, instead the environment can directly influence chances of survive. We will see that is clearly apparent, as we move through the problems and challenges that put human life at risk. 

If the environment and biology mutually effect strength of survivability, improvement can be pursued by adjusting biology or environment. This is a law, which I now label, the law of changing survivability.

The first challenge I note we face is possible asteroid collision with earth. What are the solutions? Solutions here mean the elimination of that which decreases chances of survival, or implantation of that which increases the chance of survival.  

A solution is an implementation of current actualities to manipulate survivability. When the solution is in thought alone it is said to be in theoretical or conceptual phase, when it actually is demonstrated it is a proven and repeatable tactic as so far as the problem is a general or similar problem.  

Problem (1): Potential asteroid collision destroying life.
Solution A) Chemical reactions which entirely subdivide the mass into less deadly/massive objects. How might this be done?
By sending drones, or sending up capsules of sort, or even both that initiate a desired obliteration of the dooms-day mass.
Solution B) Inhabiting other planets with some maintained survivability upon them, after a dooms-day asteroid destroys our planetary dependence.
Solution C) Movement of asteroid.

Please consider contemplation of possible solutions, and gearing yourself to working on them, because no ends/effects exist without causes. Your are the cause. Working on this project is to work on increasing the probability of survival of humanity and our possible alternative forms.

Another large astronomical event which will decrease survivability of humans as we know them now is the sun's expansion and finally its consumption of the earth. There is a time frame wherein we have till it becomes too hot on earth to bare life as we know it. So what are the solutions to having our current planet dependency obliterated?

Problem (2): Earth obliterated by sun's heat as well as sun flares, which can destroy our atmosphere and disrupt technology.

Solution A) Slowing the phase change of our star and its consumption of hydrogen.
Solution B) Inhabiting other planets, solar systems, galaxies.
Solution C) A temporary solution of using force fields, just like the earth's naturally existing fields, to protect at least some of life in case of large discharges, if not most of life on earth.

It appears that in our second problem solution B is the same as solution B for problem 1. Why do we see this duplication?
It is because the problem, is the effect of the inhabited planet being destroyed. And it is, therefore a law, if there are multiple planets inhabited by a life-form its survivability increases. In other words, the law is when a inhabited planet is threatened survival depends on extraterrestial habitation.  

Let us turn our scope inward somewhat, to the economical instead of astronomical impacts of natural order and chaos.

Let us visual problem (3): Scarcity
All life requires certain consumption in order to convert energy in to biological work. This energy, can come in form of life or prey. What man needs to consume is what I would call metabolic-resources. How can we solve scarcity, eliminate it or possibly eliminate the biological cause of scarcity: biological metabolism.

Solution A) Lower demand, by lowering population to be directly proportional to required metabolic-resources.
Solution B) Increase reproduction of m-r.
Solution C) Improve by transitioning into cyborg life form that only requires free energy.

Surprisingly, though I can not measure how hard either change is decisively, I would say A,C are just about equally probable in this time of civilization. A isn't really required, because most m-rs can be regenerated and can exist in surplus.  

The second problem is of scarcity (4) is scarcity of essential industrial resources.

Solution A) Create more recyclable materials.
Solution B) Mine off of home planet
Solution C) Nano-technology and multi-dimensional computing.
Solution D) Proportioning population to supply.
Solution E) Becoming cyborgs.
Lack of resources is not only an economic problem, but can be a personal problem, an occupational problem. The solutions are:

A) Going back to school to qualify for a higher paying job.
B) Seeking a higher earning.
C) Cutting down on personal expenses.
D) Getting loans or social service assistance.
E) Converting into a robotic life-forms.

Problem (5) Health Coverage
Solution A) Mandatory HC
Solution B) National HC
Solution C) Laws that make some have rights to free or cost-reduced HC.

Problem (6): Global Warming
S: A) Reduction of fossil fuels, also means in increase in non-destructive energy use.
S: B) Nano-bots or machines that eliminate pollution and extra carbon.
S: C) Cyborgism
S: D) Off planet living

Problem (7) Inter-species Harm

S: A) Anger management and increasing emotional intelligence.
S: B) Inhibition drugs.
S: C) Punishment, negative reinforcement.

Not only is dysfunctionality, weakness in relation to the economy it might be a disability, something that inables an individual or those under the disabilities limitations and status to be in-cable of production and many if not all forms of economic work/productivity.

From disabilities we move on to health. Just as there are many problems being the effect of disability there is many problems, as the effect of illness.

Another problem we might consider is behavior that does not comply with democratically approved governmental law. In this case like the others engineering can also alter biology and maybe even environment to change effects.

With all are problems and solutions environment and usually biology must all be shifted -- manipulated at the chemical level up.

Personal problems can range from relationship creation/end or betterment, to management of money and personal resources.

Relationships can be improved by compromising, by changing reactions or treatment of one another. Sometimes relationships are ended and may be thought of as causing problems as well as being solutions. Marriages are broken up because of various relationship incongruity with desires. This may create finical problems as well as custody problems.

Relationships may also result in law suits, where problems are taken up in court, and compensation may be legally mandatory.

Problems and solutions are not always directly linked to survival. Personal desires, and likes, may cause problems. As in example I gave in a previous publication, two people listening to music, and disagreeing because of differing tastes, is an example of a problem caused by differing personal preferences.

Religion, or just differing ideas in differing and clashing minds can cause problems. Religion is still a cause for war, and war puts mankind closer to death. Peace treaties as well as renunciations of belligerent ideas can reduce the chances of warfare.

I now cover a problem, and that is a conversion of idea into number, ratios, math. This problem may not seem to effect our survivability, but I think in some inconceivable way, to me at least, its possible applications will improve our lives and make the uncertain that much more certain. Converting things into other things, even concept to math, or resource to product, or chemical to cure, are all problems which require some kind of conversion.

Each specific problem can be faced from a different angle, and solutions proposed.

Whether or not we increase our problems or improve is up to us and our total ability to do so. Improvement isn't required, its optional, and sometimes very difficult.

Improvement means decreasing problems. This is a kind of adaptation that happens because of artificial improvement. It usually takes less time to evolve or adapt with engineering and medicine than it does by mutations and natural selection driving improvement.

What about other animals how do they improve? Many animals can only improve by natural selection. One of the natural problems, that is something that causes increase in chance of death, is the existence of prey-predator relationship. This animal animal relationship isn't that big of predicament for man, but other animals face it to a greater degree. It may be considered as a problem, but it also my balance life out, and provide predators with life.

We are a problem to animals we consume for energy, but they are neither consciously aware that they are prey nor are they aware of how to improve their lives, and avoid slaughter, expect by distributed flight-fight response. As man converts more and more to a robotic life, and can reproduce foods artificially without having to kill, our predator relationship with other animals will vanish.

How might we improve other life-forms? That greatly depends on the life-forms and how they relate to the rest of nature. We could spend our time in the future working on improving the lives of many animals, even engineering some of them to be self-improving – evolving initiated by their minds. Its an interesting prospect, not having much thought invested into it.

Here we have looked at problem solving, but there is also the possibility of problem creation.

It would seem as a universal law, beings which obtained immortality and the highest levels of survivability are a final destination, an ultimate end of evolution -- mainly being of life-forms which can escape the death of planets, galaxies, even universes, and escape death or total entropy of their cellular or mechanical life processes.

With consciousness or knowledge, the continuum of memory would be required for temporal identification of immortal existence, as well as a continued application of data and improvement thereof.

These same problems we face, are problems that most all civilizations can face, depending on how similar they are too us or more improved they are.

In m-theory, we might include this universal end, as having already been reached by beings. It might be necessary that at first less "improved" beings slowly increased their survivability so a time-line of development or causality positions that actualize the highest end in the continuum.  

Severity of problem = -(chance of survival) + Time till
