The Currency Flow of Ability... An Explanation

Post by The Voice of Time » Tue Sep 24, 2013 10:10 pm

Given you have a need-graph, a representation of the structure of conditions that make something be in a specific moment of time, and a list of reserve conditions that can take over certain functions if other conditions cease to be. Given you have this graph, this display, you will also have other "opportunity" need-graphs, graphs showing how something would be given you were in a different situation. To go from one need-graph to another, to switch which one is truly present in time and which one is absent, you'll make a "movement", a movement in need-space, where need-space is the space of things that are and things that can be and the relationship between these.

A set of graphs related to each in this manner, where different opportunities for movement is shown, is called an ability-graph, or a set of graphs showing a present (the need-graph) and the opportunities (the potential need-graphs). Then:

You would want to go from one need-graph to a better need-graph, or in other words a need-graph that lets you attain and keep a sense of solidity within your form, or in other words a "wanting of the presence", which is achieved when the structure of conditions is solid enough that it won't fail or break, so: you want to move to other need-graphs that has a better structure of conditions than the one you currently have.

The "economics" therefore becomes 1) entering a need-graph whose ability-graph (its possible movements) is strategically valuable in that they cost little (little conditions are lost) and have a further arsenal of reserve conditions, and 2) the need-graph in question is as much as remotely possible supplied with its own reserve conditions and a structure that itself is not likely to fall prey to losses. The "currency" becomes all possible primary sets (those belonging to the need-graph itself) of conditions that can fulfil the functions that preserve the definitive state of presence in time of the object of need (all need-graphs display merely the hidden structure of conditions of some reference to a real world "thing", the "object of need", either a physical object, a pattern or a set of separate things defined to belong together following some pattern across them). It also becomes all the potential need-graphs in the ability graph minus the loss of conditions and structural deprivation that comes from the morphology from one definitive state of presence in time of an object of need, to another. Morphology usually has a lot of loss bound to it, because when one function fail, as is the condition for a morphology to occur, all those conditions underlying it will also fail.

However, in very similar structures between need-graphs, the movement will immediately restore most of those conditions as they will present in the new structure as well (re-usable parts), this is not counted as a "gain" by itself or a lack of loss (after all, all conditions serve a function for in turn serve the object of need, and if the conditions don't serve the function they have themselves failed as a function is or is not functioning), but explains that a trend will occur that similar structures will have little real losses between each other, and instead will be able to take advantage of conditions that served the previous need-graph.

As such, the fluctuations in the economy of ability rests upon these movements in time that has both profit and loss built into it, and that can build both wealth and poverty in the inherent presence of time of an object of need. However, the efficiency, will be another important question, because conditions in one need-graph might be lost faster than in another, and although this can be explained as just a lack of further describing the branching of conditions into smaller and smaller units who have not yet been accounted for, there will effectively always be a limit to how far this branching can be done, and instead statistics will have to give indications as to the real value of any condition, how fast it moves in time in terms of losses, statistically speaking, in this way the deviations can be corrected for, and the more real value of any movement be designated.
