Should we trust the invisible hand?

James B Glattfelder outlines an emergent entity in his study of transnational company data.

Is this entity trustworthy?

Please state your reasons for trust or otherwise on the assumption that this emergent entity exists.

I'd also be interested in your opinion of whether the entity outlined in the math is essentially separate from the people who created it?

      Feb 21 2013: You see,
      If you don't use the "reply" button, the PcF is interupted and reduces grain of context - i.e. shortens the existential loop.
      I can only respond to this text box within its own context.
      Which is an OK thought experiment, but it does not expand the FcP - which is necessary for granular development.

      So for instance, i can ask: which "they" are we talking about?
      But the answer will nto be forthcoming because the PcF loop is disconneceted and the attempt to answer will be thrown into a sea of unconnected concepts - meaningless in themselves without context.
      On the other hand, I can impose grain by forcing my own "they" as an expression of agressive agenda.

      I can say: "they" are power-cell consprators who work tirelesly to assure our conformity and corruption"

      But this is just fatuous rubbish - as is most political assertion .. very common on the internet - the failure of contextual grain.

      Knowing this, I can make an industry of it - Alex Jones is a great exaple of exploiting missalignment of context for finanacial advantage.

      I'd rather explore the theme within its evolving context - the quest for truth is a process of expanding granularity - extending the reach of the existential loop.
      (sense-->percieve-->compare-->update-->evaluate-->act-->repeat) the Bayesian absolute of self organisation results in expanded granularity - the temporal span of the existential loop.
