Lets build an universe , . I realize this blog post is the most 'psychedelic' up to now and for long time to go, but some 'poetry' never really hurts ...
We discussed already the worldmaker effectoring .
It is quite ancient but also exponentially growing business ... in all possible forms of science , faith  and art . This modeling  usually serves to play out what's possible and what's impossible. Gedanken eksperiment , yeah, but isn't all thought  merely algorithmic  and mere action  ?
Usually the posited universes are made of variations and combinations of substance/matter, structure/form and action/process rules. Though, the algorithmic component is always the essential ingredient. Yes, the Laws of Physics are full-fledged, literal algo , too. I have those conjectures that it is impossible to think out, make or discover (which is one and a same thing) a lifeless universe  and that substance-structure-action are inexctricable, but these are separate topic for some other times to address .
Lets put together ours toy-universe  out of only pure algorithm. I've never seen such a construct, although the Orbis Tertius  is enormous and I bet this vision have occurred gazillions of time in zillions of minds.
It is like an ocean. The primary coin-toss algo which outputs 0s and 1s  makes the water. We don't know (yet) if there are even deeper and more fundamental numerical bases  for running algos. Most probably the answer is yes by analogy with the Dirac Sea  - the deeps to be made of simpler and weaker algos. The most elementary coin-toss thing makes out the ... probabilistics, perhaps the primordial form of logic. The laws of physics (and of machine learning  and of darwinian evo algo  ...) tell the rule-set how to stitch together lotsa coin-toss outputs. A hint on inspiration for that - David Deutsch's Constructor theories . The laws of physics as entropy  limitation of the allowed elementary algo cumulative output. For information being a verb, not a noun - isn't it? Very interested philosophic perspective on algorithm as randomness constrictor  raise up...
So, if the Algoverse ocean water is made of elementary coin-toss molecules, being ''liquid'' is just another phase or aggregate state .
There is deep duality  between probabilistics and logic. Just like the zoo of dualities discovered in accelerating pace by the mathematical physics in the last decades  Probability/statistics we make now by logic , the reverse ... - well, nobody yet cracked it. Even Kolmogorov. But I bet we will. Most probably the breakthrough will be Ohad Asor name-labeled... To find the know-how to do it the other way round, do logic with probability/statistics. The statistical algorithmic - not the SAT , brute force, alchemist  way as with NN/ML ,  and other known beasts. This will be nothing less but full merger of maths/logic/philosophy/thought... and physics. Literally!
Excuse me for the haiku  simplification. It is deliberate due to realization of my grok constraints. :) Regard it as sharing a poetic impression.
Is there deeper and weaker algo than the digital - the radix-2, deterministic, unitary one? Intuition says ''yes, of course!'' Like with these radix-1 Half-coins  of negative and other non-unitary probabilities ... which take two tosses to yield a bit... and there must be transfinity  of lower ones, also transfinities of higher and sideways ones ... which is almost as counter-intuitive as Dirac's bottomless night of negative energy , but I bet also as much useful. (Lets not even touch numeral bases of Pi, i, e ... etc.), and lets stick to strictly binary 'water' for our oceanic toy-universe for the sake of sanity.
The next important notion of the Algoverse ocenic model is the Algorightmic strength  - the weakest algo would be that which takes infinity of tosses to get a full bit. The strongest?
Algorithmic ephimeralization  - essentially to do more with less. Or faster - Speed Prior  ... which is just another way to say 'more'.
Some algos are too strong - QM, M-Theory - they return way too much bits per 'toss'. Their vcdim  converges to infinity. Exponential walls  in all directions. Not exactly what Freeman Dyson had in mind ... In our ''mockup'' they could be depicted as too hot. Changing the phase of the elementary algo 'water'. Like.:
but because we are all for peaceful use of algorithmic energy - we reject those up here, too - together with the non-unitary statistics down there.
Last piece of the picture - the Algoverse ocean is habitable and inhabited!
By higher algos as life-forms, stronger - but not so strong to turn the 'water' into roaring steam or plasma.
Examples: Calculi , geometries, algebras ... software . The genetic inter-algo connection should be that calculus came from Leibniz and Newton and numerous unknown others ... heads, but it is the blind watchmaker  of evolution which put those heads together ... (I disagree with Dawkins only on that evolution and design are both algorithms, alternatives but not opposition).
Thus entropically  and combinatorially  algos kinda-sorta come from one another - the stronger from the weaker.
The stronger are the life-forms living in that ocean. Cause randomness  permeates everything, isn't it?
Not so far-fetched of a metaphor given the fact that any Effector-ing  has totally algorithmic nature and essence.
How much higher 'life form' Tauchain in the Algoverse ocean is?
Is it mere life form or ... life, new organizing principle to reform all the system?
Guys, after a few articles , , .  - I think I owe you to present a little bit myself and Behest.io , .
I, Karov, am a human, i.e. I'm not robot ( although, my friend @trafalgar is a witness, once I fought all day long with a google form Captcha, but I prefer to blame a software glitch for that ... ).
I occasionally understood that 'karov' is the word for 'near' in Hebrew, but this is pure coincidence.
I'm a lawyer. More than two decades of uninterrupted PQE . In couple of European jurisdictions.
Behest.io is a ... firm. In the sense of :: firm (n.) , or in the very original sense as any firm's only way to be - a signature. Not in the sense (yet) of a legal personhood entity.
As a signature Behest.io is a tool. My tool, which I continuously develop to deliver answers  upon behests  for compliance to various crypto endeavors.
Metaphorically, the Behest.io tool dev target is: if a law firm is a CPU , Behest.io to be crypto legal services ASIC .
Blockchain came too swift, too strong and too global. Like an alien invasion. Legislators and law enforcement can not keep pace. Law and regulations are far from being definite on it.
It is entire internet of jurisdictions out there. Nobody really knows the Law. One can not just go out and shop answers. There is no legal supermarket with neat shelves of turnkey solutions with price tags.
The compliance space is turbulent. Nothing is ready and definite. Very high risk a grey zone to turn red hot. Quicksand minefield.
Crypto lawyer job is not yet an industry, it is inevitably art and craftsmanship. Tailored solutions.
Thus Behest.io is a studio , not conveyor belt mass factory.
Our approach in support is: side by side, thinking together, carefully map the routes ahead, identify the correct questions and precisely craft specific solutions.
On tailored case by case basis. In strict confidence. In all the time dynamic and adaptive fashion. In real time. From entry to exit. All the way navigation from mere idea to end.
So far it sounds like just another advert... I know. But, let me quickly throw some Behest.io preconditional points in an attempt to start sketching the bigger map:
FIRSTLY.: Why ''of Tauchain''?
Since my law school years back in the past millennium I noticed that the Law in all its dimensions.: legislature, legislation, application, enforcement, science, jurisprudence, doctrine ... is somewhat inconsistent and not quite self-sufficient.
I'm now firmly on position that the place of Law is not with the soft sciences of history and literature but among the hard sciences of maths, logic, philosophy and physics.
If we compare the social rules set with a human network protocol code, the Law up to now is obviously not quite automatic and requires too much 'hand drive'. Including, in the rules to make rules, too.
I tried to envision (with my limited tech knowledge), all this quarter of century, various ... systems which eventually could compensate such flaws: virtualization, procedural generation, gamification ... and then Satoshi came. And Ohad Asor appeared.
If we compare our intention and dream of Law with flying - since times immemorial humans wanted to fly like birds, but it took Wright Bros  we to fly ... not like the birds do.
I must herewith admit that closest to my heart are two technological projects.: Tau  and ET3 . They form kinda ... unity, but on that - other times, in series of other posts.
Ohad Asor in his Sep 10, 2016, 8:25 PM essay  very precisely outlined the problem of Law:
''We would therefore be interested in creating a social process in which we express laws in a decidable language only, and collaboratively form amendable social contracts without diving into paradoxes. This is what Tau-Chain is about.''
Exactly! The problem of Law is that it is written in inherently buggy natural human language 'software' and is run on human brains 'hardware' which is faulty for this, for being 'made' to optimize performance of completely other category of tasks. Like ... survival.
We can achieve Law by these means - human natural language and human brains - not more successfully than we could walk from here to the moon.
Tau is the most solid grounded and promising effort to deliver our long dreamed 'rocketry' to take is from here to the Law.
If Law is decidable code, it is specifiable, all intended consequences predictable and granted. Decidable, consistent ... and self-amending. Precisely what the Law is supposed to be. At last. If it is specifiable in exact terms, action code is synthesizable out of it, to feed the legal effectors of all kinds with precise instructions.
Because our societies map to our communications , drastic improvement of our interactions rules is equivalent of immense improvement of the human condition.
The Law as a Tapp (Tau App)? Most definitely. I know no other attempt the issue to be addressed in such a way of pure reason and demonstrated understanding.
This is the reason behind ''for Tauchain'' part of this post's title. It can get us there. We can have the Law, at last.
This is in the Behest.io and mine best selfish interest. Which is: a world of unimaginable freedom and wealth for all.
Behest.io in that sense is ''for Tauchain'' for the perspective the Tau to become ''for Behest''. Realization of my lifetime Legum  project.
Behest.io is not of Tauchain, or of IDNI. It is an independent project of an independent lawyer, with strong current focus on Tau and ET3. Because of the outlined above reasons. In series of upcoming articles I intend to elaborate on my visions and positions on these in general.
SECONDLY.: How exactly is supposed Behest.io to operate before the Tau is in our hands to play with?
All by the books, of course! Legal profession is for compliance, but also it is all about compliance per se. Not just compliance makers and shippers, but must-be compliant the lawyers themselves. Lawyers are strictly local and heavily regulated profession. As it should be.
Not only no lawyer knows all law, but there is not such a thing as global or universal license to provide legal services. Regardless of the 'professional services provider' Big Four  or other hierarchic collab structure - a lawyer is limited to operate only on the territory which his professional 'badge' granting regulator says.
From the other hand Internet and Blockchain are inherently global and penetrate and permeate all jurisdictions as easy as neutrino passes through a planet.
My plan to deal with this ''license to kill (the problems)'' inter-jurisdictional professional license issue is simple:
Quick assembly of full professional license coverage teams. In bespoke to project way. Ad hoc. Where and when needed.
The idea is ... if Behest.io is a screen and the solutions - images on it, the backend machinery of professionals and other resources to be freely reconfigurable and developed and expanded on demand all the time, without the client to be bothered to grok anything else but what's on the screen.
This resembles the aka B2B2X  telecom services business model which is conceptually so new that it does not have a wikipedia article, yet.
So all professional services colleagues welcome to join! In whatever forms we together see fit in every particular occasion.
I'm sure some really groundbreaking fusions will come out of this collab direction alone!
More posts on Behest.io biz philosophy to come.
