Designated member of Appraisal Institute (MAI), 1974. Employed with Western Life Insurance Company, 1968 – 71; Iowa Securities Company, 1971 – 73; American Appraisal Company, 1974 – 81.

Retired 2008 (part time teacher/blogger), AZ. Self educated economist/philosopher/theologian:

What is the definition of the word ‘individual’? My experience is that each of us is a ‘unique’ person with a ‘separate’ self and a ‘singular’ point-of-view on issues of reality. In other words, we are all different self’s (similar to a snowflake or a flower). None of us has a completely objective point-of-view which everyone agrees with totally. I am ‘subjective’ in my thinking and you are ‘subjective’ in your thinking. This means that we each see reality somewhat uniquely. We also ‘interpret’ reality somewhat uniquely. This means that their can be no collective ‘objective’ reality for everyone! An objective reality only leads to robotic behavior and this is anathema to human nature! Let’s think about this issue of: What is an ‘individual’ and why this is a reality which we now need to pursue!

Does every human being have a subjective internal mental algorithm which determines the person’s thinking, beliefs, and behavior?

  1. “individual tiny flowers” or “individual snowflakes”

The nature of reality is that we think within our own internal world (our own mental ‘algorithm’) and this gets revealed as we relate within the greater marketplace. I, personally, recognized this reality as a valuation consultant while dealing with this economic concept called ‘value’. Why does everyone like a unique car, house, specific decor, look, color, etc. This concept called ‘value’ revealed to me that most everyone wants to be different, separate, independent when it comes to decisions of buying/selling, etc. Some women (for example) prefer black appliances, some white, some of one style/color, and some of another style/color. Difference and uniqueness is absolutely essential it would appear!

Each ‘self’ is separate, unique, different, and with their own internal mental algorithm! This could be me and/or you as we enter life on this planet!

So what is it that creates this unique/individual person which we call The Self? My thinking on this issue has expanded recently with the advent of the coded ‘algorithm’ (now ubiquitous everywhere). The algorithm creates our prices today, our App’s for our mobile smart phones, our GPS data for our military, and almost all our trading platforms and computer software programs. Algorithms are used for all types of functions and purposes. Is it possible that each of us (You and I) also have our own personal ‘mental’ algorithm within us? Is this possible! What creates our thinking and interpretations about life and reality? Could ‘I’ and ‘You’ each have a unique internal ‘algorithm’ which creates our unique moment-by-moment thinking/point-of-view? I think so!

The desire to be unique, different, and subjective could be the result of an internal mental algorithm within one’s consciousness!

My internal thinking consists of ideas, words, concepts, and images. My ideas and thinking creates my worldview and then my set of beliefs and actions. We could say that my ‘internal’ algorithm is at work within my inner consciousness so as to create my life experiences, relationships, and interpretations of reality. You have a slightly different ‘internal’ mental algorithm which creates your subjective thinking, interpretations, and behavior. Every person on this planet (I now believe) has their own unique ‘internal’ mental algorithm which allows them to function and think uniquely (to some degree). Think about this situation! What does it mean for our relationships going forward?



Life is obviously subjective and we are ALL unique creations with our own internal mental ‘algorithm’ at work. My inner algorithm is different from yours…and yours is different from mine (to some degree). This creates the subjectivity which I witness within our marketplace. Conflict between all the various internal algorithms (thinking and actions) is what creates most of our social problems on this planet. What I witness today in our marketplace are conflicts between different internal mental algorithms. Why? An example of most conflicts revolves around specific belief systems. Why are their so many (billions) of different belief systems on this planet? Why this diversity?



The conflicts on this planet could result from internal mental algorithms which must be acted out so as to survive! Each algorithm is subjective!

Our political/religious/monetary/educational rulers (it seems) desire to impose ONE politically correct belief system upon the 7 billion global citizens. This is viewed as necessary so that order and control can be administered by select elites. But what happens in real-time is that this mentality (from our elites) creates our conflicts, wars, and divisions. Internal mental algorithms are the issue IMO. Putin’s mental algorithm does not jibe with Obama’s mental algorithm. The beliefs of ISIS do not jibe with the beliefs of Christians, etc. This then creates immediate conflict between all these internal mental algorithms. This is our reality today and over our past history!



Those in power/control desire that everyone bow to their internal mental algorithm (political correctness as derived from those who Govern over us)!

This issue of conflict can not be resolved IMO as every  human person must follow their own personal internal mental algorithm to survive. Conflicting mental algorithms are the problem on our planet today! There is only one alternative for resolving this conflict among all these internal mental algorithms. The SYSTEM must change so that every person can Self Govern themselves. Self government is the ONLY answer to all these conflicts of human nature which derive from the individual (internal mental algorithms). The entire SYSTEM must now change so that every person can relate subjectively and without any conflict from the hierarchy of our elites. Think on this and reflect on the idea that we all live with unique/separate/different/independent INTERNAL mental algorithms! Enjoy! I am:

The biggest conflicts result from the various belief systems which desire to rule this planet! Could this be a result of conflicting internal mental algorithms? I think so!

What is THE ‘Truth’ is impossible to settle as we all have subjective ideas about reality!


We now have about 7 billion subjective human beings on this planet! Each is unique, different, separate, independent, and with their own internal mental algorithm ruling over their thinking and behavior! What should this reality be called?
