Chapter XVII: Examining Time

 

Assuming from we know from Economics, if time was a good, it would be a normal good. Based on their observed behavior, we can deduce the following empirical conclusion: people use wage obtained from hours of work to buy leisure time, which has many possible uses. It is impossible to save it, but possible to “invest it”. The probability that they would spend their leisure time, T­L,  ­on activities payback return (in other words, gratifying accomplishments) like reading, studying or writing. Another optimal choice is activities that generates periodic earnings, but to a certain extent, in which an excessive level of income is undesirable.

From a philosophical, metaphysical or even poetical way, time is reflected in youth’s splendour. From there we can conclude the following thesis: an event in life time occurs only once, if not brought on intentionally; for an event or incident (negative connotation) cannot happen twice, with the exact same circumstances. It is rather obvious that time moves progressively; to move regressively requires an artificially method. This particular method is actually burgeoning, with a highly revolutionary technology, virtual reality.  A consequence of time going backward would, if this statement taken word by word, “make every human being on earth experience their memories once more”. Would that increase marginal utility?  If people can live their most unforgettable life stories once more, by observing they past blunders, we can deduct they will pay attention to their future actions. But that is not yet possible. Time has still yet come…

Speaking of time…

Time is not visible even to the greatest optical instrument; however space is visible. By space we mean the environment, our immediate surroundings. If time is not visible, we want to measure the change in the environment. In Antiquity thinkers understood the concept when they see a very obvious change in weather, observed in seasons. From there, the Time system was created. A full year represents on unit, divided into sub-units. We can therefore deduct that every second correspond to a specific marginal change in the universe. So space depends on time. Space is the aggregation of everything on Earth. How can we divide space? With which possible techniques? Based on countries? Assuming that countries are not equally spread out in terms of land area, there is not a coherent structure for methodic analysis, therefore there is no place for constant linearity. Is surveying a good idea? What kind of sampling distribution it will generate? Instead, we may choose to simply form our research on existing literature and database. To do so the population density per kilometre squared is a good indicator. Unfortunately, this is an enormous range to work with. We might simply use metre-squared for reasonable purposes. And after evaluating this parameter, it seems legitimate that any individuals, with x standard deviations of the normal curve, using height as an indicator would fit well into these descriptive statistics for our results. Also, the Metric System is the optimal tool for this empirical framework. It is important to remind that we are working with a two dimensional space set.

Deriving for above, there is an important aspect to take into account, the Individual perspective, which divide, from eyesight, the environment. Two same individuals can never see the world from the exact same angle. And assuming we use sight to represent the totality of the five senses. Based on these assertions, we can confirm that this is the root of Subjectivity, for two individuals can never agree on everything.  This part is extremely complicated, follow carefully. We know that past experiences accumulates with time, which is equivalent into the number of memories. This variable can be translated into the number of changes in their environment with respect to one’s vision. Let technology be possible. We can fast-forward one’s lifelong journey into a fixed quantity of time, T, and set that to be the model with respect to the average life expectancy. By examining common events in individual’s lives, we can infer additional premises.

In mathematical terms, P(X)≠P(Y), where P stands for perspective, also point of view.

Chapter XVI: Defining Performance

Why is performance important in analytical research? Remember, our goal is to create generalized theories based on known assumptions. The word “performance” is the most adequate in the context of the research.

Performance is also related to productivity. In Economics, we define productivity as the quantity of output created by given input. Instead of applying this on a firm, we apply this to individuals, comparing thus the individual like an firms, with similar attributes.

In Economics,  there are three components when calculating the productivity of a firm. Production, cost and revenue. What are the equivalents for an individual?

Firm Rational Self-Interest Good or Services Time, Labour, Capital
Individual Rational Self-Interest Projects, Money Time, Energy, Mood

An Individual’s Attributes

Mood Energy
Emotion Mindpower
Consumption Production
Time Activity
Money Good & Services
Stamina
Energy Activity
Mood*

Mood is an Independent variable. It is irregular but can be predicted.

Consumption Production
Reading Writing
Eating Cooking
Running*
Listening Talking
Driving

Composing music produces something, so that means playing music is consuming the composer’s music. But playing music in a concert hall in front of thousands is producing, so each spectator consumes the music.

Chapter XV: the Relationship between Time and an Individual’s Aggregated Productivity

Consider the following question. In which way Calculus formulas could (or may) be considered in a asset to be used to Deductive thought, in such a way that Derivatives form the basis of Rational Thinking? (With respect to the definition of the derivative, and in light of the Principles of both Cognitive Studies and the Assumption of Rational Self-Interest)

Such as, in a way, mathematical functions are of new, innovative use to study Social Sciences. These functions would be applied theoretically rather than empirically, thus gaining for significant foundations of rational knowledge.

To me more concrete, consider the following example. The simple function model, f(x). is an universal, scientific method of expressing relationship between two variables. It defines a particular variable that depends on another.  Any letter can be set to denote a variable, which is extremely advantageous when dealing with constraint-based problem. It allows freedom of scientific expressions.

Consider time. Let time be a independent variable. Any other variable can be a function of time because all depend on the latter. Or is it so? Can time be an dependent variable? A very simple example is the amount of time, of the quantity of time. We consume time. Can time be considered as a good? Can we produce time? Impossible! We can save time, although.

Once one understands this basic, yet fundamental concept, we can related to another level of comprehension.

One goal of  this analytical research is find correlations among the most difficult variables.

Performance is the total productivity an individual during any given day. It is also the entirety of skillsets a particular person. There are many types of performances. Emotional management, objective accomplishment, physical well-being, etc.

The general function of performance is given by P = f(t), where tstands for time. Its unit of measure is given by a mathematical scale ranging from negative to positive values in a continuous spectrum.

The most utilitarian application of this deductive theory is to examine psychological behavior such in a way to predict events.

Chapter XIV: A Thought-Provoking Idea

How we can end Bloodshed on Earth? How can we achieve Eternal Prosperity? The answer to that lies in the present article. Using Language. Every Single Detail counts. We have created conflicts almost 90% of the time due to misunderstandings. Is there scientific evidence to that?  Objectively, Proper use of Words is the Poisonous Root of the Problem. From there on one can deduct an continuous flow of possible assumptions…..

Chapter. XII: Analysis of decision making pattern

A key factor is to achieve stability of is return to habit. Neutral attitude towards people when occurring change of environment contributes also to stability. It is when the individual seeks praise, attention from others that problems begin to occur. Compulsive or irrational behavior is treated like outliers. No intervention in external affairs is good,  in a fixed environment. Status quo is for small matter, usually a good choice.  “Emotional self-bluffing” (also positive self-suggestions)  are very useful in dealing with outliers.
Focus on the equilibrium. Equilibrium directed. Satisfaction also deviates from the equilibrium. When the individual is pleased, the personality is weakened, so does its energy from the soul.
Indecisive behavior is dangerous, especially for sensitive individuals.
Communication affect emotivism. Eg talking to somebody. It’s the in the content of speech,  body language and tone of voice.

Another factor related to emotional level is the initial mood of an individual at the beginning of the day. The goal Is to Remove the standard deviation from mood fluctuations.

Stability involves thinking. Excitement causes disruption. Forecasting of the future involves excitement. However, excitement can have benefits, and can be ignited. Excitement is related to incentives, which could be extremely powerful,  therefore, confirming the theory of “Traps of Progress”.

Chapter XI: Psychological considerations

What is negative energy?

=>Psychological suggestions

=>Isolated environment

=>Pleasure giving leisure (games)

=>Other leisure, with negative energy to another level

=>Self-awareness, self-consciousness

=>Self-criticism

=>Motivation

=>Music

=>Exercises

=>Stimulation of the brain

 

Now, what gives motivation?

=>Ambition

=>Self-criticism

=>Comparing to others, envy (≠ jealousy)

 

As we can see, all these factors has a specific relationship among each other, which we can examine later on.

Chapter IX: Some calculations

We can define any academic, social performance into one generalized equation with respect to time.

P=performance

T=f(P)

Also, just like in the economy, an individual’s performance is regulated  by cycles.

A complete, constant cycle is the goal, which is close to perfection.

Now what is interesting is the concept of trade-off, or opportunity cost.

Regulation is a schedule, which is everything is organized, the optimum, the perfection.

How could the graph for perfection looks like? On the horizontal axis?

Time on the Y axis.

Now what is the interesting is how much can the person extend his output, to what limit.

Can total output (performance) be decreasing? Yes, when marginal performance is less than zero. Decreasing return to scale would be useful. Decreasing marginal performance will occur.

We assume 1 unit of “perform” = one unit of time. Also, we assume that cumulative output is always rising, day after day.

 

 

Chapter VIII: Constraints

Constraints, which are mathematical concepts, are also present in every day’s life. They are defined as limitations. A set of basic equations can determine the components of a schedule such as the duration of an event, a deadline for a task. But there are factors that cause these limitations. All is needed is some elementary algebra. Suppose Tony needs to determine the right time to write an essay, by that we mean the start and end time. What are the concerned variables? For sure we will consider opportunity cost. Now, to be accurate: is the next task a schoolwork or another type of task? Another dimension is the type of schoolwork; beside the subject. So as you see, an simple problem can be easily complicated.
