Spectrum Blindness: The Frequency Of Concepts, And Conceptual Networks As Production Cycles

Propertarianism

Time Preferences form a spectrum, from the very short (high), to the very long (low) — just as do frequencies of light.

As one’s [glossary:time preference] increases in length (lowers), and the ability to perceive abstracts must necessarily increase.

As one’s ability to perceive abstracts decreases, time preference also must necessarily decrease (lower).

On average we all see a similar portion of the spectrum. Some the shorter and lower, some the longer and higher.

Concepts are the equivalent of production cycles. And concepts of different lengths are incommensurable.

Therefore human beings habituate and reinforce their time preferences, until they can no longer recognize or attribute value to concepts in the other portions of the spectrum.

At that point of habituation, [glossary:Time Preference] becomes [glossary:Time Bias].

So for genetic, environmental, cultural, pedagogical, and habitual reasons, people are effectively ‘color blind’ to different areas of the conceptual spectrum.

We cannot value each…
