There Is No Narrative

“The easiest way for a human to deal with a complex system…is to imagine that there’s a little man inside…seeking retribution or offering a prize…But it might be even more helpful to remember that there’s no homunculus, no narrative, no revenge. Merely a complex system, one we can understand a bit better if we test and measure and examine it closely.”
[Asserting anthropomorphism | Seth’s Blog]

Test. Measure. Examine.

Test: try stuff out.
Measure: see what happens.
Examine: decide what to do next.

It’s essentially the PDCA (plan-do-check-adjust) cycle.

There is no narrative. There is no karma. There is no destiny for you except whatever you make with your next choice. Japanese awesomeness is your destiny if you choose Japanese next.
