A post from @Kubbaj on The Active Inference Discord Server described as “a combo of Vervaeke, Henriques and Friston”
In that “C-B-L-M” axis I couldn’t fail to see a version of Pirsig’s levels of static patterns (of value or quality) – not to mention the participatory / perceptual starting point “into” the system at its “MB” Boundary.
(C-B-L-M mapping to Pirsigian Physical-Biological-Social-Intellectual – where the latter two are maybe better expressed as “individual-mental” and “socio-cultural” IMHO – orthogonal to the “physio-biological”?)
As the first AII response indicated, there’s a wealth of detail to be elaborated behind the many arrows and relationships in that diagram. But, for me the interest is pretty clear:
- Friston – (via Solms, Fields and Levenchuk) is my original route into this Active Inference space.
- Henriques – I’m not sure I’m even aware of?
- Vervaeke – is someone I keep getting pointers to, but have so far failed to pick-up what it is he’s adding to the story?
[Holding post for that research 🙂 ]
[Post Note: Thanks to @Kubbaj on the AII Discord again – I did some immediate follow-up in the next post.]
