Synonyms: Rule of Imprecision

[Error: Wrong macro arguments: "deformat" for macro 'div' (maybe wrong macro tag syntax?)]

Conclusions

Imprecision is involved in all control processes. Every information exchange involves unintended side effects, collateral damage. It is the goal of evolutionary progress to minimize imprecision, on the other hand imprecision fuels evolution as it always allows for new control circuits to originate.

Examples

  • In warfare such imprecision is the rule but it is notoriously covered by war propaganda. In recent years when uncovering it became impossible a euphemism was created: collateral damage.
