VARIANCES: Life Unpercepted. Against Teleological Entrenchment in Evolution and Design Alike

Teselkin, Oleksiy (2018) VARIANCES: Life Unpercepted. Against Teleological Entrenchment in Evolution and Design Alike. [MRP]

Item Type: MRP
Creators: Teselkin, Oleksiy
Abstract:

In this work of foresight, I communicated my perception of Taleb's policy paper and the Black Swan problem discussed in it.

To this effect, I:
1. Re-conceptualized the concept of "foresight,” non-teleologically, and its “method”;
2. Revived Empedocles’ non-teleological philosophy of evolution with modern scientific data;
3. Located the real GMO safety problem in (you guessed it) teleology: in the suppression of dissent within institutions under a seeming assumption of knowing what waste is.

Keywords: the problem of induction, GMO, safety, evolution, horizontal gene transfer,
innovation, innovators, imagination, opinion spread, public mistrust, the expert problem,
falsification, aging, fragility, fragilizing, corruption, complexity, cooperation, waste, networks,
systems, probability, emergence, Biosphere, Noosphere, cybernetics, policy, design, risk, strategy, foresight, genetic engineering, social constructionism, Semmelweis reflex, Neo-Darwinism, Protestant work ethics, fear of loss, fear of missing out, generation, efficiency, optimization, precaution, precautionary principle, induction, inclusion, dissent, groupthink,
deduction, retroduction, cognition, cognitive cycle, propagation, complex systems engineering,
monopoly, monoculture, decision-making, Moravec's paradox, Korzybski, Vernadsky, Nietzsche, Taleb, Galam, Hume, Lem, Margulis, general semantics, general systems theory, non-Aristotelian, time binding, networks, researchers, peer review
