Harmolity
« on: June 18, 2006, 05:47:00 pm »
Harmolity is the act of being nice and generous to others, if they dont show any harm to you. Harmolity means "Harmony and Hostility"

You must be nice to everyone, of any kind of species and give and trade and do what ever you please. But, if any species shows anger or aggression toward you, you must shove it right back and try to destroy that other species.

So im wondering, what religion are you going to join with because of all these wars. And anyone willing to give Harmolity a try?

The torpals have got their Zeshism. It's done well enough for the past [insert #] thousand years...not that they don't like the complete destruction of others... :D

The Kawona are (and the Kawenu were) atheist.
That is why the Kawona valued life so highly, and why Kawenu thought taking it was such a major victory.

Yeah I know, I just realized that religion never came up for the now deceased Kawenu, so I thought I'd mention it.

Harmolity could be considered to be the second best solution to the prisoners dilemma I'm not sure if is that usefull attitude.

first the best solution (for one of the prisoners that is.) is to become the master wiles the other one becomes the slave. If you are able to get a slave then he takes all the blame all the time letting you go free. Usually is imposable to tell in prisoners dilemma games if their is a slave or master in the game at the star as the players usually can not see the other player. However by using a the system it self to communicate one can recognizes a slave or a master then use this knowledge to gain a upper hand.

Now why i do no think this is a prisoners dilemma is because first of all both Aliens have the potential to directly communicate with each other. One of the Aliens could also have more to gain from a war then the other. One could be weaker wiles the other stronger. Would a far superior race even care if a lesser race declared war on them?

Both sides must have equal gain or lose in the prisoners dilemma situation.

Philosophies like these are needlessly complex. The ViS have no need of them.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

harmolity is just a general solution for variations of the prisoners paradox.
Except Harmolity has nothing to do with the prisoners paradox. You can use a similar mindset in regards to it, but its not the same thing.

Because none of you have even cared to mention what the hell the prisoners dilemma actually is (excluding us from this conversation you started in someone elses thread), I took the liberty of reading up on it from wikipedia, and here is a simplified version :

There are two caught prisoners. Neither can talk to the other. They have the option to either betray or remain silent.
If one betrays, but the other remains silent, the silent one goes to jail for a long time, and the betrayer goes free.
If both betray, both go to jail but for a moderate time.
If both stay silent, both still go to jail, but for a short time.
Because they cannot communicate, the prisoner faces a dilemma in not knowing what the other will pick.
Even if they could communicate, one may bait the other to get away free.

The prisoners dilemma relates to the what a person would choose in such a situation. It also relates to how people will choose based on previous choices too, covering revenge and 'pacts' between the two. Its a psychology thing, right?

Omics have no religion, just the whole balance thing, which is being left behind by newer generations.
No way dude, you're trolling me.
