The MATARKA-view

Thoughts about the possibility of mathematical interpretation of the words (or the foundation of fact-based composition of texts)

Leading article: 2009. July (MIAU No. 131.) - Pitlik László (MIAU) -
(Previous article: MIAU No. 130.)

The arts (cf. holidays) and the communication (cf. weekdays) are trying to interpret symptoms by having effects on human perception. It is not a secret that these interpretation-coercive procedures consist of effects that are spontaneous, not reproducible, and are unknown to brain research to date. Apparently, these human processes exist since humanity exists. Besides the positive experiences of catharsis inductive or simply just working mechanisms, we may get erroneous, confusing, populist, demagogue etc. messages, some of them are conscious, some of them are instinctive.
Even at the forefront of this leading article, it is worthwhile to point out, that every human phenomenon (cf. arts/communication) is useful and worthy to (further) exist (because we wouldn't have got that far without them). BUT:
Perhaps no one would be offended, if the proportion of negative symptoms could be reduced, so the role of objectivity and verifiability could be increased in our everyday life even on these typically humane areas?! The question about sustainability is, if the efforts done in order to increase objectivity would lead to a stable, new lane on system level (cf. electron transition)?
And to determine how would objectivity be carried out on operative level, democratic decisions could be made: is it enough (as a preventive method) if all statistical data would generate balance-loss distress signals (cf. early-warning system), and a robotic expert developed to do this task as an integral part of OSAP and as MTI's (Hungarian News Agency) primary source of news, besides being of public utility (cf. more here)? Or: Should free speech and press be denied for those who detectably operate with false messages?
In order to eliminate misinterpretation, take an example: Is it true that Hungary's cumulated position compared to other EU member states got worse (adjective) / worsened (verb) in the last two governmental cycles?

Each adjective/verb is a model!?
Hungary's international position can/should be declared ONLY if it is measured legitimately! Apart from that practically technocratic (objectivity-oriented) expectation, based on methodically stable public researches, one may talk about morale / subjective satisfaction level. We should imply here that the interpretation of questionnaires is correct only if the opinions of illogic respondents are omitted (cf. MY-X Factor-Y FREE news: 2009.VI.08, ill. III.25.) Of course, everyone has the right to be in error, but the recognition and treatment of it should not be forbidden too!
Similarity analysis (based on all experience and theoretical considerations) is able to derive the position of objects (e.g. countries) defined n- dimensional (based on n-kind of indicators) by the objective (fact-based and methodical) way.
In frame of cluster analysis (as the actual best practice) the researcher was looking for what kind of object groups can be identified, if we want to maximize the distance between the different object groups (e.g. successful and ailing countries). With these analytical goals, the role of extremely low or high values is stronger in contrast of average indicator values. Put in other words: the cluster-analysis is like a tabloid (just as the tabloids in the media), it tends toward demagoguery (just as politics), or it does not recognize the concept of equilibrium.
In frame of similarity analysis the above mentioned methodical principles may be reflected (Y0_max), but there is its mirror-image (Y0_min), when we trying to find out if we can consider all objects to belong to the same group.
The typical example for the parallel existence of these two views is the decathlon. Based on the classic (cluster-analysis based) principles, some excellent/outstanding performance may suppress the effects of the other average/mediocre performances. By the Y0_min approach, a sportsman should not necessarily win any of the events, if s/he can reach the podium in all events.

If we project those principles on the indicators of agricultural farms, and we search for the most important index numbers or indicators with the Y0_max and Y0_min (so, in parallel) per indicator (e.g. crisis, productivity, liquidity, financing, stability, success, profitability, efficiency) then the two approaches produce seemingly different importance of phenomena (indicators and index numbers). The events at the top of the index number order of Y0_max reminds us the classic economic expert terminology, while the Y0_min solution's top list seems unconventional/strange at first glance, because it shows the same world from a previously unknown aspect: so it emphasizes which definitions are responsible for the essential differences between farms per the mechanisms of action (cf. more here). On indicator level, the aforementioned eight definitions differentiate: the indicators (events) deemed to be more important by the classic principles sketch in the following image: BE liquid, so solve the problem of financing (e.g. credit), suggest that you are capable to avoid crisis, and produce more and more value from less and less input (cf. productivity). In contrast to that, the sentence made up from the 4 definitions of this novel approach sounds like this: BE stable: or stably successful, stably efficient, and stably profitable, so exist in the proportion of the recognized and offered opportunities!
We have to admit that the possibility of Vonnegut's problem lies in each definition, it can still be assumed however, that both analytical logics draw the concept pairs of the sustainability and narrow-minded (crisis-generating) strategies.

Based on a database, the definition of decadence was able to be derived as the parabola of the legitimate definition of disadvantageous situation (cf. MY-X Factor-Y FREE news 2009.V.29.). Based on these two independent experiments, it can be assumed that the mathematical derivation of words that are on the fringe of undefinability, and which were created and combined into essays with virtuosity by human intellectuals, is not impossible. And the proof that it should be no other way, is explained by the intuition and heuristics interpretations of Konrad Lorenz: Human beings (and all other kind of creatures) are instinctively intuitive, so they instinctively find the answers for the symptoms of the world perceived by them (their relationships). So, the pieces of art made by artists, and machines made by technicians are the results of the same intuitive processes. It can clearly be seen by now, that based on the similarity analysis, (which is the embodiment of mathematics of intuition-generating itself), there is a clear passage between the two results based on facts.

And why all this is important? For the meta-theoretic and cosmosophic approaches, each thought is a piece of puzzle that is needed to be fit into the whole. In the world-interpretation of similarity analysis, each definition can be traced back to the measurements/observations, and the methods that process them.

All adjectives/verbs are models!? If we measure everything that can be measured, and if we have free access to the data assets created by this way, then the correctness/derivability/fact-based-nature/consistency of all our instinctively stated opinions (adjectives, verbs) can be examined! Although intuition is a huge treasure, it doesn't work perfectly. Moreover: intuition is under the effect of evolution too: it is in error, it dies out, it approximates (the necessity), and it survives! (The handling of the material/biochemical projection of the source of intuition is not the subject of this article, also as the detailed demonstration of the differences between heuristics and intuition ...)
For environmentalist movements, centrist parties and leaders concerned by the stability of power, similarity analysis is the ultimate tool to assure a social development that stays on the ideal line, and occasional biases are of less and less amplitude.

It is inappropriate to say, but it should be said: the principle of Einstein, according to which the simpler model/explanation is the better, may hopefully mean a legitimating force to similarity analysis, because the types of similarity analysis used here can be learned by anyone, and with the help of some excel commands and the solver, it can be done instantly. A good pragmatic reporter would not be able to accuse/support anyone without an adequate control calculation (e.g. Is the Hungarian motorway building too expensive?).
In order to get more and more complex and obvious (by a certain level of detailedness of data assets) analyses in real time, decisive steps should be taken in order to form free calculation capacities into units (cf. SETI), and make all data a public utility. The cybernetic society based on the aforementioned principles is self-controlled, and it is not the Phalanster! Today's world, however, is narrow-minded, envious, demagogue, malevolent, populist, self- and community-destructive, monopolistic etc. Unfortunately, or fortunately, however, the same tension gives the chance for the experience-driven intuition to produce solutions that are able to cure their own weaknesses, like the similarity analysis...
