As has been discussed in the recent Weekly Report, no factor serves as an adequate measure for all of the leaps made in evolution and in human economics. Indeed, even when a factor does seem adequate, such as the changed metabolism between animals (which require food to survive) and human beings (which require food, but also clothing, energy, housing, etc), the energy used isn't the same kind of energy. How can we directly represent qualitative changes? In this video, Jason Ross uses Cantor's demonstration of the difference between types of infinites as an example.

Any planetary recovery must necessarily begin by examining the economic principles which underlie the difference between a successful and unsuccessful economic policy. In particular, we must first elaborate the characteristics of a self-developing system -- one whose evolution is entirely governed by its internal relations, not subject to any fixed outside metric.

Peter Martinson interviewed Dr. Richard Altrock, of the Air Force Research Laboratory, back on December 7, 2011 at the American Geophysical Union's Fall Meeting in San Francisco. Altrock is a heliophysicist, who specializes in observations of the solar corona. Back in July, 2011, he and three other groups issued a forecast that the Sun was not only headed into a late, weak solar cycle, but that this may be the last time we get to see any significant sunspots on the Sun for, perhaps, several decades. You can see a summary of that forecast here. In this interview, Altrock updates that forecast, and adds a surprising twist.

Dr. Altrock's views are not the official position of the United States Air Force.

A consistent failure in economic work comes from failing to recognize a difference between quantitative and qualitative changes. Evolutionary upshifts include changes that are qualitative in their not being comparable with previous states, and the same is true for human economy.
