Colour me skeptical. I shouldn't have to even write this. This should be common sense after a 21st century education. No-one in the entire world can show that any of the following things really work.

Those Things That Don’t Really Work

Yet people are still convinced otherwise.

Yet if you post against any of these subjects on social media there is a strong chance you will "trigger" the audience into a frenzy of snide comments and insults. As though the very notion of scientific reality is offensive.

One of these days I'll write an article that lists some of the more common forms of verbal abuse the so called "mainstream" now deal in. For now please enjoy these apparently controversial ideas...that are not really controversial at all. If you understand how scientific capitalism really works then none of this should be a surprise to you.

These things DON'T WORK and it's really expensive to pretend they do.

Artificial Intelligence - because it's a perpetual motion machine. Automatic production is not possible as it requires the creative capacity of original thought firmly rooted in real world feedback to recognize anthropic opportunities. AI exists purely within a simulation and production suffers accordingly.

Ideologies - because ideologues can't capitalize on real time opportunities and spend too much conforming to yesterday's standards. The harshness of "fitting" conditions to framework without the adaptive quality of science causes error reducing competitiveness below sustainable thresholds.

Magic - because energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Leveraging little known physical properties as an entertaining illusion is the best it can do. Conversion of one thing into another requires proportional energy. Any sufficiently advanced technology is said to be indistinguishable from Magic. Not true. Technology is measurable and like all real world artifacts it consumes appropriate resources where magic claims it does not.

Prognostication - because it is effect without cause. Return without investment. Progress without progression. It would not only undermine the production of every other human being in the universe but would also rob from every other natural process in the cosmos. If even the smallest creature could see the future it would break the entire game by short circuiting evolution quickly starving all other life through unearned resource appropriation.

Simulation Theory - it's a pyramid scheme. There is no limiting principle to avoid run away inflationary expense as the layers compound endlessly claiming principal returns as though they were operating within natural opportunities not possible within simulations. The opportunity in a simulation disconnected from real physics... being artificial and distant from substantive data reflecting the real world... always costs more than it returns and only by pretending the simulation has no cost does this appear otherwise. Another illusion.

Socialism - because there is no such thing as a free lunch. Compound interest on debt always erases the benefits as socialism encourages waste in its distribution of other people's resources by turning producers into consumers dependent on government services. A sort of simulated economy with all the failures of any simulation. It seems stable only when the costs are hidden by making individuals pay for governments mistakes.

Supply Management - because the incentives to serve special interests always redirects profits from their natural destination by establishing bureaucratic supremacy over private production. Selling market access to political friends by passing regulations to control them cripples the competitiveness of any economy by drawing it further away from new opportunities in order to protect the favoured elite. It's robbing the rest of us of the resources we would have naturally earned and then used to further produce.

Time Travel - violates order of operations, can't co-exist with the concept of momentum, and undermines past investment. A traveler's very presence in the past would "add energy" to that time/place violating the conservation of energy principal and ultimately creating a paradox where they could never have existed to go back in time in the first place. Best enjoyed in movies like Back To The Future. It's science fiction.

I really hope this helps some of you avoid most of the rabbit holes of delusion that so effectively reduce profits. It's a truly harmful thing that so many pseudo scientific types entertain these delusions to attract investment and clicks. The closer our conception of reality matches the true reality, the more productive we become. The less it costs to produce more as science informs our decisions with ever improving precision. It's time to think in high resolution. I know it's harder, but it pays dividends.
