I have a short biography here.  Can I edit it later on, or is it set in stone?

I have a undergraduate degree in Government and Politics.  However, I was an aerospace engineering major for three years before embracing my interest in international politics.  So I have a huge interest in the intersection of technology and Geopolitics, and I am interested in how technology will affect international politics and power dynamics.  I am an Eagle Scout and a (probably still) certified scuba diver.  I was on a FIRST Robotics team, volunteered for Relay for Life for seven years, was a member of the National Honor Society in high school, and at one point had a motor boating license.

Sorry it took so long to get your amendment onto the site, by the way. There were one or two minor canon issues to remedy first.

Best Friends

the companions welfare
should be
the companion's welfare

but I suggest changing the article entirely: I think that assuming a negative intent is inappropriate, even though the article is referenced from one which lists proscribed activities.

The entire article might be better as something like

A psychological simulation is made of a specific individual or group, allowing the acquisition of near perfect insight into the target's preferences. That knowledge can be used to create and introduce an ideal "companion" to them. Actions involving that companion can then be used to influence the subject. The companion might be physical, virtual or even imaginary.

Yes- it does seem to be describing malware rather than something useful. Some 'best friends'might be malicious, but I'd expect them to be mostly neutral or beneficial; a kind of external exoself or aiviser.

Toh Chi are bipedal neosaurs closely resembling their deinonychus ancestors, with a slightly larger cranium that is nonetheless beautifully streamlined. Females are two metres tall and over three metres long, with black and orange stripes. Males are slightly smaller, with black and red stripes. By biont standards, Toh Chi are remarkably strong, with among the fastest reflexes of their size.

and a title before: "Personality-wise," with the title: "Psychology and society".

I'll leave the Efficiency Maximisation Paradigm article alone for now, since we are likely to rewrite it shortly.

Here's a reworking of the Transcend article, with a few more images and text;
http://www.orionsarm.com/eg-topic/45cfd475c5b95
The added text is as follows
Quote:Location The Transcend has largely migrated outwards from the crowded Inner Sphere; it occupies several clusters (on average about 3000 light years from Sol in various directions), such as Transcend Seven (NGC 6802 in Vulpecula, Transcend Nine in Centaurus, and Transcend Three in Auriga. The closest Transcend cluster to the Inner Regions is Transcend One, NGC 2451A, 600ly from Sol. All these clusters are connected by an independent wormhole nexus, forbidden to other Terragens.
