Born to Do Math 175 – Open Nodes, Self-Consistent Maps, and Sequences of Fuzzy Moments
July 1, 2020
[Beginning of recorded material]
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: It’s like the top of the x-axis as the future, as they run through the sequence of time. The universe kind of evolves in its relations from point to point in what would work as opposed to what would not. So, going from the original point to the future points being more complicated while still self-consistent maps, a graph theoretic map, this is what I’m seeing here. Anything that could be sufficiently consistent running from T=0 at the top to the bottom in increasing scales of complexity would continue to function. Maybe, one could plug in certain emergent principles like space or volume.
Rick Rosner: It would have to be built from what is going on, but they would be emergent. The deal is, in a quantum system, in a system functioning according to Quantum Mechanics, you can have open nodes. There are places where there is missing information. There is a missing value that can be filled in, in the future. You don’t know what is going to happen, but in the next iteration, in the next moment, something will have been picked. A value, they used to talk about it as the collapse of the wave function, but it is picking values from moment to moment. So, you have a bunch of open nodes. In the subsequent moment, some of those nodes have been determined. Generally, in a universe that works, when those values are determined, they add information to the universe.
They add more information to the universe than they remove, or, at least, the amount of information in the universe doesn’t appreciably decline. Most of the events, most of the quantum events, are consistent with the universe, or can be consistent with the universe, as the information is transmitted across the universe. You could burn the universe down. You could have a bunch of quantum events that are sufficiently contradictory; that the universe would eventually lose information and boil down to a soup that contains almost no information.
You could see that playing out as the hardware behind the universe if that were corrupted the way a brain gets Alzheimer’s. That brain loses information; it loses the capacity to hold information. You could probably express the loss of information via a series of quantum events that are showing the universe melting, boiling, down, where the things that happen with information is lost. But Quantum Mechanics, I think, is a way to show sequences of moments, fuzzy moments because it is Quantum Mechanics, where you are plugging values into open nodes to increase information. You could model universes where what happens quantumly boils down the universe.
For instance, if a background radiation, the CMB, from the apparent beginning of the universe, and if you turned the temperature up on that, then you could boil the universe away to nothing. You’d have to do a couple other things, e.g., have a universe that looks collapse-y rather than expand-y. Anyways, the temperature goes up and the CMB ionizes everything, as it gets hotter and hotter; it cooks everything away back to something that looks closer to T=0.

*High range testing (HRT) should be taken with honest skepticism grounded in the limited empirical development of the field at present, even in spite of honest and sincere efforts. If a higher general intelligence score, then the greater the variability in, and margin of error in, the general intelligence scores because of the greater rarity in the population.*
According to some semi-reputable sources gathered in a listing here, Rick G. Rosner may have among America’s, North America’s, and the world’s highest measured IQs at or above 190 (S.D. 15)/196 (S.D. 16) based on several high range test performances created by Christopher Harding, Jason Betts, Paul Cooijmans, and Ronald Hoeflin. He earned 12 years of college credit in less than a year and graduated with the equivalent of 8 majors. He has received 8 Writers Guild Awards and Emmy nominations, and was titled 2013 North American Genius of the Year by The World Genius Directory with the main “Genius” listing here.
He has written for Remote Control, Crank Yankers, The Man Show, The Emmys, The Grammys, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. He worked as a bouncer, a nude art model, a roller-skating waiter, and a stripper. In a television commercial, Domino’s Pizza named him the “World’s Smartest Man.” The commercial was taken off the air after Subway sandwiches issued a cease-and-desist. He was named “Best Bouncer” in the Denver Area, Colorado, by Westwood Magazine.
Rosner spent much of the late Disco Era as an undercover high school student. In addition, he spent 25 years as a bar bouncer and American fake ID-catcher, and 25+ years as a stripper, and nearly 30 years as a writer for more than 2,500 hours of network television. Errol Morris featured Rosner in the interview series entitled First Person, where some of this history was covered by Morris. He came in second, or lost, on Jeopardy!, sued Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? over a flawed question and lost the lawsuit. He won one game and lost one game on Are You Smarter Than a Drunk Person? (He was drunk). Finally, he spent 37+ years working on a time-invariant variation of the Big Bang Theory.
Currently, Rosner sits tweeting in a bathrobe (winter) or a towel (summer). He lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife, dog, and goldfish. He and his wife have a daughter. You can send him money or questions at LanceVersusRick@Gmail.Com, or a direct message via Twitter, or find him on LinkedIn, or see him on YouTube.
