**intelligence vector** - A

hypothetical phenomenon
and

physical law, like

gravity or

field theory, that manifests itself
in the physical world as

emergence and

fractal intelligence. The, as
yet unspecified, models, mathematics, relationships and underlying phenomena
in the physical world that allows emergence to occur.

The "intelligence vector" acts, in the

gestalt, to bring the

universe
into a state of

self awareness through the application of

fractal intelligence

**Thought Experiment and Game Theory**:

*Context:* Let us start with 4

combat automatons that function in the
following manner:

Each

automaton has 10

Hit Points
Each automaton can cause 1

Point of Damage per round to
one other Automaton

Each automaton chooses another automaton to attack at random,
eliminating any "friends" from the list of choices

*Experiment 1: No friends*
Running a

simulation until

acquiescence always results
in a different Automaton left alive, generally with only 1 or 2 Hit Points
left.

**Results: No Emergence**

*Experiment 2: One friend chosen for one automaton at random before simulation begins*
Running a simulation until acquiescence results in

something
very

interesting. The automaton chosen as a friend almost always wins,
and the one that chose it as a friend is almost always the last to die.
The

advantage given to the winning automaton is that instead of dealing
with an

average damage of 3*.3333 (1.0 HP) each round, the automaton now
has takes an average of 2*.3333 (.667 HP) per round, while 2 of it's 3 opponents
now take an average of .5+2*.3333 (1.1667 HP) per round. The automaton
that choose a friend still has the normal average of 1 HP / round of damage
taken.

**Result: Emergent behavior = We moved from random results to predictable
results by forming a simple one-way relationship between 2 of the automatons.**

*Question:* We can analyze this game theory,

decompose it

mathematically
and feel

comfortable that we

understand what is happening. But do we?
Or have we just proven that it conforms to

probability theory, just like

elections or

population breeding cycles?

*Assertion:* The way that

mathematics,

action-reaction and

physical
phenomena work in

our universe includes a

clever twist. That twist
is the intelligence vector. It is just part of

the system, part of the
math, hidden in the cracks, waiting to be described. It is what makes it
possible for me to sit here and

contemplate it.

*Summary:* The fact that

emergence can happen at all is an

existence
proof of the

intelligence vector. While we can discuss this subject

endlessly, we have a great

opportunity to begin to

examine it

scientifically.
Our

goal should be to begin to build

substantive scientific holoradix
around the

concept of the

intelligence vector.
