O wise infinities supporting my structure, let me read your patterns, please. I am here only as a small being wrapped in the mysteries of math.
My question today is how to learn improvisation. It seem like one of those things that requires many complex structures, all interacting in complex ways, and the question is if this is true, or if there is a way to define the little structures that produce emergent phenomena and lead to improvisation.
Given a few variables, and a way to process those variables, is there a pattern of improvisation which will reflect upon itself without too much reflection upon itself so that the cycle of improvisation will remain on the edge of chaos, where all the fun things happen?
Surely there must be, because we are evidence of it; we can improvise, therefore math can improvise.
Perhaps it has to do with Darwin’s theory of natural selection. That which adapts the quickest becomes the most prevalent.
In that sense, there is something beautiful for us self-awarenesses to understand. It is this: natural selection favors those that adapt the fastest, not those concerned about the injustice of reality.
And it seems to me we can always pick selected cases, and, with a small enough frame, call them bad, though with a broader view our perceptions of injustice are tempered. In other words, instead of judging we should merely observe, and let it work itself out.
We cannot adapt quickly to the changes of time if we are having conversations in our heads about whether it is good or bad, what is going on. Instead, by merely observing, we are liberated from the errors of the past.
‘Honor thy error as a hidden intention,’ as it were! This all speaks to improvisation, because that is what adaptation is.
The scurrying around of the proto-mammals that became us could not have worked unless they were willing to look in the world they were in and operate the best they could, without pretension or arrogance or judgment. What pays the bills is observation and distinction and improvisation, not criticism, not judgment. The pattern must accept itself and work to spread, not cry about spilled milk.
So after letting go of a belief in ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, the path to improvisation becomes twistier and also more hopeful. Justice has been transcended by the elegance of math. Instead of right and wrong there is only acceptance of the world you live in.
In doing so, you can adapt more quickly than patterns of thought that believe in the beauty of the past rather than the simplicity and elegance of the future.
By allowing yourself to improvise and be freeflowing, you can rise above and overcome the world you seem to find yourself in.
All this due to a little math. If you’re going to trust in anything, trust in the elegance of mathematics.
