Largely the old ways of linear thinking are coming to an end. This can be demonstrated in many ways, but the Procrustean mythos of the old Greeks was about this real, limiting problem. The false dichotomies, A —> B only mentality of machines where pushing a button yields only one outcome, whereas as in complex systems (most of the universe of events, 99.99+%) can do much with little. Linear logic and methods have reached its limits to growth. We are because of this rule of diminishing returns of incompleteness and oversimplification the simple logics and methods are becoming obsolete and being replaced by far, far better methods which can do more with lots less, and thus grow faster, and do what linear methods cannot even dream of. This change of epistemology and paradigm marks the end of the machine age, in short.

That logic and forms of math which use that recursive logics as Godel’s Proof shows, more completely Godel’s Incompleteness theorem. And it’s easy to see how this works. If everything is either A or not A, and there is no excluded third, as formal verbal logic demands, then this is at variance greatly with the statements of being either White or black, which misses the unlimited shades of greys between the two. Or in another Way the koan of Ulam who stated, calling the universe “non-linear” is like calling biology the study of All non-elephants. It misses millions of species. And THAT is why linear methods are incomplete, and we are reaching the end of the machine age. it’s simplifying but too much so. It’s to some extent an easier way of looking at things, but it misses too much to be very complete. and that’s the problem. & light speed measurements, which contrast greatly with QM interpretations of the same events.

.Also graphite reactors, which are complex system at low power due to small areas of fluctuation which propagate from chain reactions beginning at some sites more than others and create instabilities, which can blow up, compared to more sustained, even linear fissioning at higher power outputs.

.The same kind of widely varying rates of fissioning at low power are unstable because some areas will rapidly growth by input/output mechanisms. As a few neutrons hit a few atoms those fission, releasing more neutrons, creating the notable chain reaction. But in fact, those take place at random areas, where more fissioning at low power takes place. this arose from input/output effects, where by chance chain reactions grow exponentially simply by chance, and in other places not so much, due to variations in purity and interactions of fissioning centers as they coalesce and become more even, pretty much homogenous areas. The instabilities come at shut down, and powering up. This is what destroyed Chernobyl’s reactor block 4, to the destruction fo the USSR, and continuing dreadful radiation contamination problems existing widely over central Europe, today. It’s complex system being ignored and creating the problem.
