Technical question, I wonder if NPMR operational management is less physical, rather than non-physical? I wonder if low entropy would actually be essential for a specific job with a tight job description?
Tom does not provide much information about the hierarchy of management within NPMR and PMR fractals. As he happened to 'know', as his protegee, the present Big Cheese of Our System of associated NPMRs and PMRs before he moved into office, we have this very small data point to go on to figure any of this out. I personally do now 'know' about any of this.
We do not know anything about the range of distribution of the capabilities of IUOCs. Things tend to fit a 'bell curve' of distribution for most characteristics of a given population created through natural processes. The way that IUOCs were formed by natural mathematical processes (emergent complexity and self organization) during the development of the LCS as first Consciousness arose and AUO and then AUM, would imply a bell curve. That covers the creation of a 'high end' of functionality as being suitable for management but it says nothing that makes sense about the low end of the range of functionality which would be taking on the insects and below on the scale of consciousness. So I suspect that this, a bell curve, is
not the situation for IUOCs. My reasoning: while there is
a need for a certain relatively small number of 'management level', very high capability, IUOCs to form the cadre of management in all the systems such as ours, how does this take care of all the insects, etc. at the low end which typically make up a significant percentage of the 'bio mass' of a given system while each being very small individually. Translation: there is
one hell of a lot of insects and such out there. Tom has mentioned that there can be a sharing of IUOCs between a number of insect instances. It has also occurred to me that while there is
a need for low level life forms to 'exercise' the low level IUOCs with an appropriate decision space, there could be a lot of such insects that are just 'place holders' and simulated by TBC, sort of following the leader. Now whether this means that just a relative few low capability IUOCs can cover all the openings as 'insect class' decision spaces, I do not know and I suspect, based upon what Tom does say, that it is
nothing which he has seen any reason to delve into.
I can see no basis for expecting that management jobs can be handled by higher entropy IUOCs by simply putting them under some kind of rigid job structuring. That kind of job is
basically synonymous with a lack of structure. You need someone who can handle the unexpected, not a bureaucrat in a strait jacket. How it comes about that the NPMR entities that Tom has mentioned came to not incarnate is
unknown. That list would include the present Big Cheese before he was put into office, Thor, The Teachers as a group and no doubt more that we have no information about. As I have explained before, although how many understand or accept this I do not know, there is
really nothing there within the LCS as TBC or the EBC that Tom describes that can actually be anything other than a bunch of IUOCs working together to produce the necessary calculations and control to generate a VR. Perhaps the management level IUOCs did their 'heavy lifting' in incarnations early on and received some kind of special processing/training by AUO. This is
all that AUO and AUM have to work with, by any account from Tom or elsewhere. We as IUOCs are the bricks and the RWW is
the mortar to bind us into any required structure. Perhaps this becomes more believable since those same IUOCs in Union are
AUO and then AUM as development continues.
Another hint as to how things work is
that while Tom tells us that the present BC came into office relatively recently, this simultaneously tells us that the job is
not forever. Whether resignation is
involved or removal from office for cause, we do not know. Since IUOCs do not die, leaving a vacancy in office, we know that there is
some basis by which new office holders come to be needed. So perhaps even these high level IUOCs in management need some time for R&R or retraining and retooling by incarnation, although what such a high capability IUOC would do as a human or other entity, I have no clue. Perhaps there are high level and high quality PMRs such as some here have been longing for where
these management retreads are carried out, as opposed to their coming here.
Perhaps these speculations make sense to you.
