In the conception of 6DKF’s honeycomb structure we exemplify in this way the functioning of human learning:
- The senses collect data from people and from the outside world (hearing, sight, etc.).
- The mind analyzes the reliability of the data source (a person, the senses themselves, etc.)
- Verified the reliability of the source (logical consistency, past reliability, etc.), the mind starts the comparison of data
- If the data contrast with a more authoritative source (eg. the opinion of an expert heard about in the past) the data will be rejected
- If we do not have comparative data we give the “likely” value to what we have learned
From here it is easy to see that when a notion lurks in our mind as “likely”, the evolution of its process can only be the following:
- If the information appears to us as interesting, vital, or at least necessary, we will make sure to look for other comparison data to find solid confirmation / denial
- If the information seems minor, uninteresting, not in contrast with our fundamental principles or entirely superfluous, in our minds it will become with time more and more like a certainty
What follows from this mental scheme is that our mind is visually paragonalibe to a nest of bees:
- The recesses already filled (with comparative data) are unlikely to be occupied against the will of our opponent
- The empty cells can instead be filled without any resistance on the part of the unaware victim
There is nothing more naive and arrogant to think that no one can write on our minds.
To perpetrate our deception we must meet the following basic requirements:
- We have to start the data assumption from an authoritative source (eg. right or not, no one will listen abount economic projects from a 7 year old boy)
- We do not want to show any direct benefit from the assumption of the information, neither by us nor by the source (the source does not necessarily coincide with ourselves)
- We have to implement the deception with consistent time / space within his reach (eg. if it’s something about lunch, the inoculation should start before noon)
-We need to estimate the knowledge of our interlocutor or, at least, its level of culture inherent to the focus of deception
We are proceeding in a not so little linear way and there would be many other things to say, but for the moment we stop here; we outlined the foundation for understanding more complex applications and concepts.
In future articles we will show practical examples.
