I just added this:



Because of a conversation I am having here: http://www.sciencechatforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=34324

With help from http://all-free-download.com/free-vector/, I have tried to make things a bit more artistic:

EDIT: I moved this section from the education article, to the govenance article under "Criteria for a healthy democracy".

I have added these tv shows for kids 3-6:



These movies for kids to 6-9:



And these for 9-12:

I added Pinocchio mainly because I have been listening to Jordan Peterson's course about Maps and Meaning, where he analyses Pinocchio.

Imagine if we could get Jordan Peterson to make a course where he analyses Star Control 2. That would probably increase the popularity of Star Control 2 a lot, especially among scholars and intellectuals.

I don't think that effect is reliably existent, let alone strong enough to base educational theory on.

Look. Even machine learning algorithms apparently learn better when they are motivated by curiosity:

Curiosity is apparently more scalable than external rewards.

Quote
Several studies have found that it is better to motivate people with reward than by punishment. Procedural learning seems to be enhanced by using reward rather than punishment[3]. People seem to have higher retention of what they learned when they are motivated to learn by rewards[4]. Punishments can also produce undesirable psychological consequences, such as anxiety[5]. However, there are also problems with using rewards to motivate children to learn. Children might focus more on how to trick or manipulate their mentors to give them rewards, rather than upon learning. Intellectual curiosity is essential for a child’s own eagerness to learn. Lately, curiosity (or the tendency to investigate novelty) has been found to have many advantages over external rewards in machine learning[6,7].

I am thinking... you could say that capitalism mostly is based upon "reward" or the green row, while authoritarian regimes mostly are based upon "punishment" or the red row. This could also be one of the main reasons why capitalistic societies have tended to be more successful than authoritarian regimes. I am also thinking that these colors fit somewhat with the colors of the houses in Dune 2:



You can play it here: https://classicreload.com/dune-ii-the-building-of-a-dynasty.html

Apparently, both Star Control 2 and Dune 2 were released in 1992, so I am assuming that many of you played both these games.

And look. They also have an open source HD project, just like SC2: http://dunelegacy.sourceforge.net/website/index.html

Dune 2, Wolfenstein 3D, and Ultima Underworld all came in 1992. These games have been the original inspiration for many of the games that were created later.

Dune 2 -> Real-time strategy games.
Wolfenstein 3D -> First-person shooter games.
Ultima underworld -> First-person role-playing games.

So they had a lot already back in 1992. But they didn't have generalized AI's for games, and they didn't have devices for augmented reality games.

The AIs in Dune Legacy are much better than in Dune 2:
