"[W]e have no laws of scaling for semantics. The science is seriously lacking here." #readingToday
Computer science has virtually no body of work on how to approach the orchestration problem at the level we are describing here. The science of dynamical scaling is relatively well understood, if not always well applied, but how do purpose and meaning scale from the small to the large? Is everything we do on the small scale pointless, when viewed on the large scale? This will surely depend on how weak or strong coupling is across the scales. But we have no laws of scaling for semantics. The science is seriously lacking here.
