I know that the psycohistory I am talking about is not psycohistory but anyways. The sci-fi writer, Isaac Asivmov wrote about psycohistory as mathematical means to know the nature of mobs or large groups of people. His character Hari Seldon, used it to end a time of barabianism in the galaxy. Yet can psycohistory be brought from science fiction, to science fact, or at least plasuibilty? Warp travel would be possible if we had enough negative matter and energy, and antimatter itself is sitting in magnetic barrels. Why can't we do the same with psycohistory? (Yet we shall call it Mathematic's of the history and future of mobs and nations- MHFN) I will use an exaple of a kind of MHFN I have already came up with. It is simply a damage to goodness ratio. d/g. I will use it on nation-z. Nation Z has 8 wars and 4 great kings. 2 wars caused 2 units of damage. While the wars other wars caused only one unit of damage. One king had three units of upbringing, causing the nation to be in a golden era. Two had 2 units of damage, while one only had one time of greatness. If we add it up we get d= 10 and g=8 so 10/8 so 5/4 so 2.5/2 so 1.15/1. In the end we get that generally, nation Z has 1.25 damage every time, a unit of 1 "+" is given. We can further on multiply d/g x t = a t= time a= amount of damage. We can then calcultate how long nation z will last be saying their is a max for "a" that depends on "d/g". This max tells us how long a nation will survive. Unfortunatly I have not had enough time to compute an A1 (max a) equation. (the above example is general, it could be applied to military and the econimc structure of a nation.) What ar eoyur thoughts or am I doing pointless math?
