This year, an interesting explanation of Bitcoin revealed the physical security provided by the Proof of Work consensus method.This story has evolved from Jason Lowry, U.S. Space Force Officer and U.S. Department of Defense Fellow at MIT, whose full-time job is to study U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Bitcoin. His opinion on this topic is his own and does not represent the Department of Defense’s opinion.
As part of his master’s degree, Lowery will write a dissertation on how Proof of Work miners work. Functionally identical It could be adopted in the role of the military and on behalf of the war in achieving a global consensus on the status quo and chain of freedom and digital property. What is particularly unique in Raleigh’s dissertation is that it fits the evidence of work as an evolution from the biological and physical patterns of the universe and life itself.
Lowry Explain itBillions of years ago, our world was just a few unicellular organisms. Over time, the state and chain of control over resources unknowingly shook in favor of cooperating multicellular organisms. Animals have evolved, expressing the projection of force and resolving resource debates, from antler to dominant behavior. Fast-forwarding millions of years ago, apes are emerging. One of those species of apes, Homo sapiensDeveloped the recognition of abstract thinking and the ability to extend beyond trust and cooperation Dunbar’s number, Use a set of common beliefs.
“The game of life is a game of power projection. This is usually power projection. One great way to do a good power projection is to work together. Cooperation itself is a predatory competitive advantage. Sex … History is a running ledger written by those who have won the dynamic proof of the game of work. ”

According to Raleigh, power projection allows people to declare legal authority to define the management process for property ownership, and if those authorities are oppressive or weakened, power projection will challenge them. Maintain the ability to rewrite the management process against the authorities of. By definition, it constitutes an unauthorized protocol. The lack of the ability to project power means that we must implicitly trust a third party to define what ownership is.
Lowry argues that the military is an extension of this power projection game four billion years ago, achieving consensus on what a legitimate state and management process is. Whether we are talking about the backyard or the boundaries of our country, these boundaries are set because power was predicted to oppose another authority someday in our history. A resource that you can control. The army projects athletic power and makes it too expensive not to cooperate with those who control the army. Without an army or some kind of power projection, confiscating property and resources can be rewarding.
Without the defense of property, there is no ownership. In other words, the military is a way to maintain an unauthorized control structure over property, and consenting to the rule of law is implicit in the historic battle that led to the establishment of the rule of law. It is a verification. We use the rule of law to eliminate the need to constantly contend for any disagreements, and cooperation leads to increased power projection. Without the ability to predict kinetic energy, there is no way to have unauthorized control over physical resources.
“The power of all bullets, the power of all bombs, the power of all tanks, all trucks, all ships, all submarines, all the engine power behind all planes, all the troops that have served so far. The power world behind the heartbeat of all military personnel is literally measured in watts. These watts are spent to protect property. Defend the rule of law. What needs to be defended. Defend anything. And yes, it’s very inefficient to sit there and create a huge permanent army that does nothing but defend the rule of law and what you want to say you own. Even more expensive than building a standing army is being invaded or conquered by another army. “

How is this related to Bitcoin? Power projection does not have to contain only the kinetic energy at which force is applied to the mass to displace it. It can also be made electrical by adding an electric charge to the resistor. In any case, the rules of the game and the underlying physics are the same. Both types of power projection are measured in joules or watts per second. The only difference is how that energy was derived. With Bitcoin, humans are monetizing new forms of property and effectively replacing war with power projection games.
Humans apply a dynamic proof of work to maintain the state and chain of control in the physical world and physical resources. And while water, air, and land are always what Raleigh calls a dynamic “flesh space,” money doesn’t have to be limited to the physical realm.
Money can be transferred from the physical realm to the electrical realm, Same principle And work certification, unauthorized control structures can be applied to it. As an alternative to kinetic projection, no one bleeds from the proof of work consensus. And, even better, the projection of force does not rely on the adjustment or challenge of the belief structure. By monetizing Bitcoin, humans no longer have to fight war to protect, confiscate, or justify their financial property.
There are additional benefits to doing this migration. Kinetic power projection games are a race to destroy infrastructure, usually ending in rubble and death. The Bitcoin Electric Proof of Work Competition, on the other hand, is an infrastructure building competition that enhances network security and promotes energy abundance.
The secondary and tertiary effects of this transition are just beginning to be understood. For example, Lowery points out that the abundance of energy makes desalination cheaper and reduces the need for a kinetic energy battle for freshwater.
Lowry states that humans are good at projecting kinetic forces, and the proliferation of nuclear weapons has made it impossible to counter the authority of oppressors, that is, to set the state and chain of control over money. If that happens, we are guaranteed to fail. Therefore, his dissertation would argue that mankind has lost an unauthorized control structure over money.
Bitcoin represents the solution to this conundrum. As Raleigh says, Bitcoin and Proof of Work are the equivalent of human horns built on a nuclear-resistant digital defense infrastructure to regain digital unauthorized control of money and digital assets. Projects power to.
Bitcoin never ends the war — claiming ownership of physical resources always requires a projection of kinetic energy. However, Bitcoin is a global neutral digital that dematerializes the dynamic power projection game needed to prevent monetary oppression and enforce contractual tender based on the legitimacy of the rule of law by the military. Enables money. Raleigh is fascinated by Bitcoin. Bitcoin follows this power projection law found in nature and in all biological systems. This creates what Lowery calls “mutually assured destruction.” In this case, competitors are encouraged to work together and everyone can benefit from their productivity.
This is in stark contrast to the athletic projection game, which culminates in mutual assured destruction. Unsubscribing from war plunder and subscribing to Bitcoin enhances civilization, promotes competitive cooperation, and enhances the ability to project constructive power as a seed. Money that can participate in a beneficial transition to restore unauthorized control structures. In a world where nuclear weapons have hampered their ability to counter oppressors, even if nuclear weapons emerge, Bitcoin is not only a national security obligation, but an obligation for all mankind.
Lowry continued to refine his dissertation, Invited to join the Bitcoin community and discuss him May he refine his theory. It’s interesting to see how his ideas evolved and helped change our view of what Bitcoin means to humanity and the ability to own money and property in the digital realm. prize.
