Sociobiology is a complicated concept that most outside of sociology or psychology likely wouldn’t know or have heard of. It somewhat best fits what we’re working on in this realm but doesn’t exactly fit either. It’s like the triangle in the square hole. You can kind of get it to jam in there; it still doesn’t fit but it’s a lot closer than the circle in the square hole. We are currently pursuing several avenues of research in this area.
The first avenue is a mathematical theory for social group formation and its applications to humanity. We’re quite excited about this theory as the potential for it in particular we believe is incredible. It mathematically defines social structure and consequently from it, you can derive various types of governments. The power dynamics of monarchies, dictatorships, democracies, etc. are all predicted from the mathematics of it. It literally spells out the mathematical definition of stable social structure and therefore government.
The other avenue we are pursuing more fits in with the mathematics of societies. It is a foundational mathematical theory for the distribution of power in a society. It shows what ways power can be distributed and how it will affect the temperament of the citizens of society. This also has the potential to be quite important as you can literally run policy decisions through this theory to determine how the populace will respond to them. It can act as a “litmus test” for government policy.
These two areas of research may seem similar to an outsider but are vastly different. One tells how social structure forms and the other tells how members of a social group will react to changes in society.
