If you know a system well and change parts of it to make it more efficient, that system will work better.
Evolution works this way “mindlessly” in the sense that we assume today that there is no plan behind evolutionary change. If something works better it tends to replace that which it works better than.
Another “mindless” example is AI systems that invent their own languages:
An artificial intelligence system being developed at Facebook has created its own language. It developed a system of code words to make communication more efficient. The researchers shut the system down as it prompted concerns we could lose control of AI. (Researchers shut down AI that invented its own language)
The linked article mentions other AI system that have similarly invented their own communication systems. These systems work but humans are not able to understand them.
All of this shows that communication systems have their own logic and that they can be made more efficient by pursuing that logic.
This is what FIML does through the use of a few new rules for speaking and listening.
FIML emphasizes and provides techniques for:
- analysis of real-time communication
- much greater accuracy in real-time communication
- much greater mutual understanding, efficiency, and satisfaction
By improving your communication system(s) and removing error from it, FIML greatly enhances psychological well-being.
FIML works with the communication system(s) you already have. FIML does not tell you what to think.
