RE: Linking global context

linking global
Looks like a good read.  The blurbs hype it as revolutionary, and it is not.
Any erudite Hindu can explain all of this to one.   But since the
dominant metaphor these days is the web, explaining things in
terms of webs and networks makes sense as a pop communique.
So do tantra and karma.   A lot of us have been using ecosystem
metaphors for some time, and that is a somewhat better metaphor in that
it takes up communities in a less flat metaphor:  hubs (attractors)
might not be organized as a set of connections, but in terms of
the sign systems (say message types) they share, so this
becomes the self-organizing principle and one has to think
about how and in what ways sign systems and power laws
are connected (it isn't hard).
Some questions:  how does any member unattached to a
network/community choose its community, and by what
means does it signal such intentions?  
What is the nature of habit, how are habits acquired,
and are we capable of transcending habit?  Is the trancendence
of habit the key to transcending the network itself?
Desire is the maker.  Desire is the destroyer.  How do we
become the masters of desire?   Networks are a very flat
way to look at a complex adaptive system.   Given an origin
event, how long does it take and at what frequency of
interaction for intelligence to emerge?   What events can
be posited that will amplify this emergence or curb it?
What events destroy intelligence (capable of manipulating
and influencing events) and how are they detected?
One can resort to pattern and link analysis, but they
are wholely unintuitive.  At the operational scales,
intuitive knowledge is vital for selecting actions.

In the context of linking, does anybody has read "Linked - the New Science of Networks" by Alberto-Laszlo Barabasi?


I would be interested - in the perspective of linking - to listen to your thoughts about these concepts.
