The Designing Animal

In the first episode, we will discussing human beings as Designing Animals, how designing shaped by our intuitions and deliberations drives our actions, and how feedback from actions processed by intuitions and deliberations reshapes our design.

Principles from the above diagram:

1) “Our”: Regard all of world civilization across history as your “our”.

2) “Design”: Form follows Function

3) “Actions”: Act on Principles

4) “Intuitions”: Let your intuitions be uninhibited

5) “Deliberation”: Use Bayesian thinking to update your priors

6) “My”: Attention is your primary power that activates or deactivates others

Any comments most appreciated–please comment below.

One thought on “The Designing Animal

  1. Do needs, drives and other motives play a role in initiation? Does fear play a role in limiting initiation?
