The Emergence of “Smart Contract” Language and the Indus Valley Script

It is thus essential to be aware of the world view implied in each form of language, and to be watchful and alert, to be ready to see when this world view ceases to fit actual observation and experience as these are extended beyond certain limits.~http://www.gci.org.uk/Documents/DavidBohm-WholenessAndTheImplicateOrder.pdf

It might have already been explained in some form by Nick Szabo, but what seems obvious to the author in regards to the undecipherable Indus valley scripts is that they are some form of an evolution of smarter contract technology that came about because of a certain economic explosion. We might then look for other indicating factors such as changes in culture/economic situations or changes/evolution in “games” played at the time. We should also look to understand the scripts in relation to emerging security and marketplace technology.  We should not suspect that the language is not complex, but rather a specific emergence of a complex language that arose only because of specific circumstances.  We might suggest then that there was other languages at the time for writing and dialogue that was not related to seal/contract technology.

Observation the process of the creation of Ethereum might actually be helpful in understanding the emergence of the Indus script.  As would understanding certain extensions of the Kula Ring conjecture and in relation to Another Possible (Fundamental) Formalization of “An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations”

Silk has a long history in India. It is known as “Paat” in eastern India, Pattu in southern parts of India, and Resham in north India. Recent archaeological discoveries in Harappa and Chanhu-daro suggest that sericulture, employing wild silk threads from native silkworm species, existed in South Asia during the time of the Indus Valley Civilization dating between 2450 BC and 2000 BC, while “hard and fast evidence” for silk production in China dates back to around 2570 BC.[18][19] Shelagh Vainker, a silk expert at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, who sees evidence for silk production in China “significantly earlier” than 2500–2000 BC, suggests, “people of the Indus civilization either harvested silkworm cocoons or traded with people who did, and that they knew a considerable amount about silk.”[18]~http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silk
