The new science of Machine Intelligence gives us an opportunity to develop and thus learn rules that can enable thousands of intelligent agent entities to execute purpose, thrive and coexist within a system. Those same rules might help benefit us as we learn to work with nature, helping us ultimately become better stewards of our land.

The Existence Model Architecture or Ema, defines fundamental intelligence for agents within a Stored Purpose system. It includes both Information via "Platonic Forms" and processing via the General Intelligence Algorithm "Gia," that enable each agent to serve a Purpose defined by its Identity. Much of that Identity … the aggregate Goals that comprise each Purpose, will be to balance the Purpose of other entities within the system. For example, if there is a lawn maintenance bot which Purpose is to add water to the hospital lawn to make grass grow … there must be another bot with Purpose to cut the grass to keep it short. Similarly, if a new customer interest generates popularity in a product no longer produced, there must be counter effort to find inventory or resume production. We see the same balance on a simple level in human systems where a new baby's Purpose, which is largely to eat, grow, and poop, must be met by other Purpose to acquire food, to feed the baby, and to change its diapers.

It is in understanding that such balance is pervasive in any sustainable system, and that conservation of mass and energy laws ultimately guarantee such balance, that you begin to realize that "growth" in a Purpose oriented system is over the long term not in the physical domain. Unbalanced growth over a long term is considered a negative event, and has a special name … cancer.

So where is the net gain, in Ema based, Purpose oriented systems?

There is gain within each system, in a fashion similar to inductance, such that when Purpose is fulfilled, gain is achieved, but not necessarily in the direction of effort of any one agent.

Stored Purpose offers a look into the science of intelligent ecosystems, the study of information, processes, guides and controls that make systems of diverse intelligent entities possible. It provides an understanding of the prioritization and curtailment schemes that must exist to keep such a system alive and running for extended periods of time. Through its study, stored purpose can invariably grant insight into how our own system works. Questions as to why there must be viruses and bacteria, how a system of zero waste is possible, and why such a system is essential, are met with vivid new answers.

We believe it is in those answers and the study of the rules of our ecosystem, that people may find Purpose as stewards of this planet … helping hands that might assist, rather than hinder the planet's maker, over the next billion years.
