Psycho mathematics
Psycho-mathematics

I was listening to a podcast from a French political scientist (Louis Lefèbvre) and he mentioned “psycho-mathematics” whilst talking about the economy, social order and the new world order. Bla bla bla

I’d never heard of “psycho-mathematics” before so I decided to do a bit of research.

I found a book written by William B. Conner, but couldn’t find a free PDF copy. Dodgy

So far, as I see, it seems like it’s a scientific doctrine for ham farmer based on mathematics and humanities. Using math to understand and predict behaviour of humans and other entities. Ohhh, I also found some references to a new methodology to teach math, but this is not what we need to focus on for now. Anyway, I propose we discuss psycho-mathematics as a scientific tool for ham farmers instead.

If you have information please share 

This is what I found so far:

"The purpose of Psychomathematics
To understand and predict behaviour of humans and other entities.

is important to understand the underlying principles of the system. When we do, the behaviour of a system can be defined.

Basic principles
a = an action
c = coercibility
e = entity
g = a group of entities
n = nominal, stable
nm = number of members in a peer group
ob = ordinary behaviour pattern
p = predictability
pp = group psychology / peer pressure
r = regulating factor

An Example,
Predicting nominality through peer group coercibility.

A predictable entity can be persuaded to a task via a group psychology, such as when a person becomes part of a mob or peer group or gang.

We begin with the average solo entity having a coercibility of -1. ie not readily coercible to anything out of the ordinary behaviour pattern.

e.c = -1;

Now we create a peer group of 100 entities. The probability of the entity becoming coercible rises as the peer group number increases.

g = 100e
e.c ~= nm

if an entity e becomes coercible c to an action a when a peer group number is greater than 100, we get
e.c|a > g = 100

from this we can calculate the coercibility contribution per individual

e.c = nm/100
e.c = 1

Let us introduce a regulating factor r, such as a police officer or authority.
as r increases e.c. decreases by a factor of 1.
e.c. = 1/r

thus to maintain a nominal(undisturbed) system n, 1 regulator r is required every 100e. when n>=1 there is order, when n<1 there is disturbance.
n = r/g
n = 1

as e increases the probability of n becoming disturbed increases
n = 1r/2g
n = 0.5, a less nominal number

we now have a useable statistic to improve nominality."

Hmmm... can this sort of stuff really be useful?

Finally, something also about Montessori:

“Montessori's psycho-mathematics is a plan or method for comprehensive mathematical education by means of psychological keys, and, to take a specific area, ...”
What sort of program is that?

What say you?

Sounds like psychohistory, a fictional social prediction science in Isaac Asimov's Foundation series.

What is a "ham farmer"? What does that mean, someone who raises pigs?

RE: Psycho mathematics
Ham farmers:

Well I guess it’s similar to using the shepherd analogy, but rather than someone who tends, feeds, or guards flocks of “sheeple”, we’re into farming pigs. Some people may be cute, cuddly, and docile like sheep, but other are more like pigs and their spirits are eaten (energy) by them psychopath human farmers.

RE: Psycho mathematics
Basically if you take the idea that humanity has been enslaved for thousands of years, the 'ham farmers' would be the slave drivers - with the added component that humanity was specifically created to be a slave race for, and are periodically modified by the ham farmers.
