The MacroDecimal

Recreating (and advancing) pk’s censored domains: & / Teaching / Scholarship /

Macroinformation is generated by the juxtaposition of discrepant information types. I propose the macrodecimal to trigger macroinformation from juxtaposing a whole value with a decimal fraction. Two decimal fractions could also be so juxtaposed.

1 . nnnn
0 . nnnn

Are we sentient? Yes.

If the answer is yes, that’s a whole number: 1, for example.

How sentient are we? Totally? Perfectly? With complete maturity? Ah, I think we need a decimal fraction: one which must necessarily be estimated.

My first application is drafted at Civilization, by Stage and by Maturity.

It quickly bled over into Macroinformation: Definintions and elsewhere.

About pk
