Why does the brain have a reward prediction error? (Paywall) Mark Humphries wrote that story, I replied, he replied, I replied…
The dogs at a show could be ranked by…
1. a small committee of experts (socialism)
2. everybody voting (democracy)
3. everybody donating any amount (market)
With the last one all the money could be given to the Human Society, for example.
Each of these three systems is very different, so they would rank the dogs very differently. One system would rank the dogs far more intelligently than the other two systems.
Here’s a list of books…
- The Origin Of Species
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
- A Theory of Justice
- A Tale of Two Cities
- 50 Shades of Grey
- The Bible
- War and Peace
- The Cat in the Hat
- The Wealth of Nations
These books aren’t equally useful, just like dogs aren’t equally useful. We could also use the three very different systems to rank these ten books. One system would rank the books far more intelligently than the other two systems.
It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around this. You’re trying to figure out how the human brain works, which I think is certainly a useful endeavor. But is it as useful as figuring out which collective brain is the most intelligent? What’s the difference?
The foragers in a beehive use costly signals to rank flower patches. A bunch of individuals put their tiny heads together to try and correctly discern the usefulness of a patch. The more correct their assessment, the more optimal their allocation of resources.
Right now I’m allocating my resources to discussing intelligence with you. Why? Because my brain tells me that this is a very useful thing to discuss. But it’s not like I have a good grasp of the exact mechanics. Your grasp is much better than mine. From my limited perspective, it seems like my brain is a bunch of individuals putting their tiny heads together to try and correctly discern the usefulness of a topic.
I’m a multicellular individual. Why? Because a long time ago a bunch of unicellular individuals did a really good job of putting their tiny heads together. Now here I am, a multicellular individual, trying to explain to you, a multicellular individual, that it’s relatively easy, and incredibly beneficial, to figure out which system does the best job of putting our tiny heads together.
Heh. It feels really… primordial.
Right now the most important experiment is being conducted… Honest Cash. Participants use costly signals to rank content. As opposed to Medium, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Google where content is ranked by cheap signals.
The Honest Cash experiment will economically enlighten everyone, and then all us multicellular individuals will do an infinitely better job of putting our tiny heads together, which means infinitely faster evolution.
If you want to better understand brains, then you should definitely participate in the Honest Cash experiment. You can use your money to improve how the content is ranked.
Compare these two passages…
While one can see that a nervous system signalling to both tissues could make chemical communication redundant, it’s now clear that the hormonal link — and the autonomous character of peripheral tissues — never went away. As specialised populations of cells evolved, the total organism benefited from individual tissues broadcasting their status to modulate other organs. As Karsenty puts it, ‘no organ is an island in our body.’ — Liam Drew, Hormones United
It is thus that the private interests and passions of individuals naturally dispose them to turn their stocks towards the employments which in ordinary cases are most advantageous to the society. But if from this natural preference they should turn too much of it towards those employments, the fall of profit in them and the rise of it in all others immediately dispose them to alter this faulty distribution. Without any intervention of law, therefore, the private interests and passions of men naturally lead them to divide and distribute the stock of every society among all the different employments carried on in it as nearly as possible in the proportion which is most agreeable to the interest of the whole society. — Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations
What’s the difference?
In both cases the optimal balance, the efficient allocation of resources, depends on a bunch of individuals effectively putting their tiny heads together. On a small scale the best system involves the sacrifice of calories. On our scale the best system involves the sacrifice of cash.
Today Honest Cash posted a request for us to be "an advocate for the underdog". The first thing that came to mind is this excellent article by Conor Friedersdorf… Democratic Socialism Threatens Minorities. It makes the solid case that the interests of minorities are much better protected by markets than by democracy.
Around 5% of people are vegetarian. With democracy (tyranny of the majority) they would lose by a mile, but with a market, they have plenty of meat-substitutes to choose from. As the saying goes, there's riches in niches.
What makes Honest Cash special is that it uses a market to rank content. This naturally means that the interests of minorities will be much better protected here than they are on sites that use democracy to rank content, for example… Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Steemit and Google.
Honest Cash is a genuine marketplace of ideas. It won't be the most popular ideas that receive the most attention, it will be the most valuable ones. And where do the most valuable ideas come from? The masses? No, they come from minorities. They come from the underdogs. They come from the heretics.
To be clear, I'm not saying that the heretics are always right. Some of them are certainly crazy. What I'm saying is that Honest Cash will do a better job than the democratic websites at elevating the truth, it will rise up the ranks far faster, which means expedited enlightenment and evolution…
Our creed is that the science of government is an experimental science, and that, like all other experimental sciences, it is generally in a state of progression. No man is so obstinate an admirer of the old times as to deny that medicine, surgery, botany, chemistry, engineering, navigation, are better understood now than in any former age. We conceive that it is the same with political science. Like those physical sciences which we have mentioned, it has always been working itself clearer and clearer, and depositing impurity after impurity. There was a time when the most powerful of human intellects were deluded by the gibberish of the astrologer and the alchemist; and just so there was a time when the most enlightened and virtuous statesman thought it the first duty of a government to persecute heretics, to found monasteries, to make war on Saracens. But time advances; facts accumulate; doubts arise. Faint glimpses of truth begin to appear, and shine more and more unto the perfect day. The highest intellects, like the tops of mountains, are the first to catch and reflect the dawn. They are bright, while the level below is still in darkness. But soon the light, which at first illuminated only the loftiest eminences, descends on the plain and penetrates to the deepest valley. First come hints, then fragments of systems, then defective systems, then complete and harmonious systems. The sound opinion, held for a time by one bold speculator, becomes the opinion of a small minority, of a strong minority, of a majority of mankind. Thus the great progress goes on, till schoolboys laugh at the jargon which imposed on Bacon, till country rectors condemn the illiberality and intolerance of Sir Thomas More. — Thomas Macaulay
The most enlightened minorities need the opportunity to quickly lead the masses in the most valuable direction. Honest Cash is this opportunity, because it's a genuine marketplace of ideas.
En este capitulo hablamos del mercado y sus últimas acciones en el precio del bitcoin, donde vimos una pequeña caida de 4% sobre la semana pasada la cual paso de 3590 a 3450. Se habló también del top 10 y los cambios en este con respecto a la semana anterior donde vimos que TRON y Litecoin experimentaron una mejor semana al resto de las criptos en este top 10.
Litecoin cruzó a Tether para regresar al sexto lugar. EOS por su parte paso a BCH y esta en el lugar numero 4 finalmente Stellar y Bitcoin SV se mantienen en las ultimas dos posiciones del top 10.
En general la semana ha sido bajista para la mayoría de las monedas pero es la volatilidad la cual ha estado sin mucho cambio. Este mercado lateral se espera que continué hasta Marzo aunque de momento tampoco se ven muchos indicios de manipulación.
En el precio de Bitcoin podemos ver formaciones de acumulación que han resultado en mini pumps lo cual puede ser algo importante, pero primero debe haber mas volumen en el mercado para lograr un buen rally.

On Honest Cash (HC) I follow AnarchoVegan, which is how I learned about this website. He posted about how he was chastised here for posting off-topic content.

Today I introduced the American Economic Association (AEA) to market social websites (MSWs).
It's wonderful that the AEA decided to create this forum, but I'm not so sure about the voting part. Right now the vast majority of social websites are democratic in nature. Members of these democratic social websites (DSWs) can vote for the content that match...
Reddit is a democratic website, so naturally my anti-democratic posts don't receive very many votes. Here's my latest post on Reddit… The Most Important Book
The most important book ever written is, by far, Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. It doesn't cost anything to read.
A free book sure sounds like a great deal. But what happe...
I first heard about Bitcoin all the way back in 2013. I was attending a conference on medical cannabinoid research when a well-informed friend told me about this new store of value. Back then I was younger (obviously), inexperienced and couldn’t quite grasp the potential of this new magical internet money. My mind was frazzled in an attempt to understand the idea of solving the double-spending pro...
Exactly a year after beginning its crash from close to $20,000, the world’s biggest cryptocurrency seems to have found a new bottom. Bitcoin extended gains for a fifth day on Wednesday, heading for the longest winning streak since September, based on Bitstamp pricing. The increase of more than 20 percent since Friday has carried most of the digital-token market with it. “The market is extremely ov...
Almost two weeks after the chain split, it seems the Bitcoin Cash hash war is dying down. Most exchanges have distributed the forked coins, trading volume is increasing across the board, and CoinGeek will be starting their Bitcoin SV-focused conference soon. As a sign of confidence in the chain split, Bitcoin Cash SV (BCHSV) has seen its price surge.
Over the 24-hour period from 8:00 AM on Novem...

I really think we still have a year of this left. I have no concrate proof. I just think that this is not panic yet. And coins still have very little use-cases. Crypto will grow, but not now. In a couple of years.
As the bear market continues, I sense that some may be feeling down about it. In Chinese culture, we have a saying that goes, “In Crisis, lies Opportunity”. Bitcoin Cash has been around for 1 year now and if you have been closely monitoring the BCH space, you would notice a sudden explosion of innovation and growing ecosystem. And I would argue that all Bitcoin Cash investors are all early adopter...
