There were two “breakthroughs” needed for the metacomputer to be a host for intelligent thought, Goal Pursuit and computable existence. We didn’t initially know either was important, but we did know waiting seconds for fleshy fingers to type on a keyboard or touch display had a negative impact on the performance of a machine able to execute billions of instructions per second.

The reasons all computers must wait, is that all knowledge about what to do in a particular situation, typically rests in one place, our heads. We needed to find a way to change this, so computers could know what, when and how to do things.

The solution was to enable the computer to understand its surroundings, and know what it must do, without always waiting on human instruction. Goal pursuit wasn’t the entire answer, but it was a big piece of the puzzle.

Figure- Goal Pursuit<br />A Goal is a self directed graph that makes it possible to align “right” states of Identity with measured states of Self.

Figure- Goal Pursuit
A Goal is a self directed graph that makes it possible to align “right” states of Identity with measured states of Self.
The key parts of a Goal are it’s center, where meaning is defined in Platonic Form, boundaries (i.e. Low, High), state transition vectors (i.e. Low -> High), and links that connect the Goal vectors to context and sensor-controller technology.

Although the “self-directed graph” may resemble a dog chasing its tail, it represents a fundamental capability for a machine able to operate independently. Unfortunately, the Goal required a form of information and a linkage to technology that hadn’t been invented yet, but those were problems for another day. We also needed to develop means to organize goals, and ensure a machine would pursue the right goal at the proper time.
