This page needs to be broken down into components.

But carefully, into useful concepts that should be included in the narrative of the summary of this article, so that taking out the links won't break the sequence. The same goes for Bias and Bayesian and some other pages I don't recall. --Vladimir Nesov 15:01, 17 July 2009 (UTC)


Eliezer, I hope your thoughts aren't as vague as this article would suggest. The phrase "is a manifestation of" is extremely vague (trumped only by "is associated with"?), and the capitalization of "Order" and "Chaos", and the terms "heresy" and "religion", make me wonder what's going on. If we removed the meaningless or emotional bits of this and replaced them with what we actually mean, would it look something like this?

Lawful intelligence is the notion that intelligence is produced mainly by the application of useful rules rather than randomness. Even creativity and outside-the-box thinking are essentially orderly.
While this contradicts mainstream Silicon Valley beliefs, there are some good mathematical reasons for believing it.
