But Nash took this idea of equilibrium into the realm of paranoia where he immediately assumed that each player is only out for himself and is out only to screw over the other players and so, based on this warped assumption, he developed a strategy of giving the other players the illusion of mutual cooperation but then double crossing and betraying the players at the end so that the doublecrosser is the one who is always on top and always in the controlling position. In short, Nash is saying "get the other guy first no matter what it takes since the other guy is gonna get you first no matter what it takes. Every man for himself and better it happen to the other guy then you."
It's a projected paranoia with a slum mentality all coming from a so called "beautiful mind." Yeah, beautiful for a psychopath that is.Read more ›
Combine that with the facts presented about the cyclical nature of what may be heading our way from "out there" and you get the picture that humanity is in for a very interesting ride. Educate yourself; make a difference, read "Almost Human"!
The book compliments the BBC documentary I've seen, The Century of the Self by Adam Curtis. Game theory was thought to apply to everyone, where their actions can be predicted by mathematics. The main goal was gains for the self, which turned out to be false.
In reality they found that two main groups fit it: psychopaths and economists!
This book goes deeper into the connection between these types of people and how they are not just mass murderers, but also our political and economic leaders!
A must read for those that want to find out why the world is the way it is in these crazy times. It is also useful along with the Ponerology book to be able to spot this kind of behavior and avoid being hoodwinked by certain individuals.
Studying case point such as John Nash and Ira Einhorn is important to unveil where our slavery begins and where it should end, as in the words of Ouspensky paraphrasing Gurdjieff 'in the actual situation of humanity there is nothing that points to evolution proceeding .. man is becoming a willing slave .. begins to grow fond of his slavery, to be proud of it. And this is the most terrible thing that can happen to a man.'
The whole affair has reflection 'as above so below,' that this book explains in full details. Science and so called mysticism are really two sides of the same coin.
so easily effect havoc in our lives. Using two examples, she breaks things down so that we can clearly see what is so important to learn and
know. A must read for anyone trying to understand why so many people get hurt and how we can protect ourselves.
