**CURRENT DRAFT UNDER INSPECTION FOR PROMOTION: Game Collection: WCC: Botvinnik-Bronstein 1951

**DUE DATE- THE DAY I WILL SUBMIT THIS DRAFT TO <Daniel>: Submission Day <<<SUNDAY APRIL 6>>>

########################

<Greetings colleagues!>

Daniel Freeman has given us his blessing to edit the History of the World Chess Championship.

Our task is twofold: to fact check each introduction and source the information to reliable books, journals, or newspapers. At present, many of the intros are either imprecisely sourced, or sourced to dubious websites.

Second, we should edit the intros so that any new material we discover should be added to the existing text, which is often skimpy and usually contains a good number of factual errors.

<Here is our <<<watchword>>>: all facts in the intros must be sourced to reliable primary material>

###############################

STANDARDIZATION TEMPLATE

<1. How did the Match come about?

2. What were the conditions for the Match? The stakes, the number of games, the rules, and this could also include information about the backers, the venue, the referees, and so on.

3. What happened at the Match?>

<SITE FIELD> Country Code guidelines, courtesy of User: Paint My Dragon:

The normally accepted convention is, I believe, to refer to the URS (The Soviet Union) from 22 Dec 1922 until 26 Dec 1991, when the Union collapsed, and thereafter, to use RUS (Russia), or one of the other Baltic states that formerly comprised the Union. Unfortunately, the attribution of three-letter country codes to the Balkan states over a range of dates spanning the nineties and noughties, is a much more complicated process, and more than I could begin to explain on these pages, so pray hard that you don't have to report on any matches from what used to constitute Yugoslavia!

  playground player: <Jessicafischerqueen> <Mrs. PGP> and I searched all over the Internet but couldn't find anything on Vancouver's posted <Well-Being Zones>. Buffoonery like that really should become famous all over the world.

The actions of these aspiring micro-managers of the human race would be (as Tony Vincenzo from <Kolchak: The Night Stalker> would say) bone-ticklingly hilarious--except for the fact that those persons are dead serious about thinking they can coerce perfection out of their fellow citizens. Forsooth, they're more than serious: they're quite mad.

I wonder if the kooks running Vancouver just snuck those signs onto the street--and an ordinance into the books!--without any reporting by our highly-trained journalistic professionals.

  Boomie: This is an interesting summary of Faith in philosophy.

http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/f...

Many posters here have some kind of "Faith" and this article can help define what the heck that means.

Faith is a uniquely human trait I think. Though it wouldn't surprise me if some crows have it too.

What is the evolutionary advantage to "Faithing"? Or Compassion for that matter.

The SEP is a nice reference to bookmark.

Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: <Tim> I've read all of Plato and I'm not impressed by much other than his sense of humor and his clever logical constructions, most of which are fallacious, and thus of interest solely in a historical sense. Much more pertinent work is being done today by actual scientists into the phenomenon of "faith" as such.

As you probably already know, an area of the brain has already been identified that, when stimulated, will engender feelings of "not being alone in the universe."

Seems to me that would have a clear evolutionary advantage- tough to get up in the morning and get that next mammoth if you feel all alone in the universe.

Also, I bet the capacity of humans to feel faith helps them bond together in cooperative groups, which is helpful.

Less helpful, arguably, is when each group tries to exterminate the other group with the "wrong faith."

Compassion has an equally obvious evolutionary advantage among social mammals. Not crows, Tim. Dogs, chimps, baboons, and such.

Apr-12-12
Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: <Tim> that's an extremely well-written article from the Stanford Encyclopedia. Those folks are certainly on the ball eh?

Thorough.

  jessicafischerqueen: However, my sister is absolutely convinced that our father has been reincarnated into a Crow.

Needless to say, I feel no urge of any kind to contradict her on this matter.

I think people should be given as much room as they want with regard to their faith.

  Boomie: <Jessie>

They found a crow in New Caledonia that fashions a tool with a hook to snare grubs. Not even chimpanzees have discovered the hook in their toolmaking. Crow's are creepy smart. I never let one sneak up behind me. Especially ones that are reincarnated spirits.

  Boomie: <Jessiroo, Doctor of Anthropology: Compassion has an equally obvious evolutionary advantage>

Not to me. How can sharing food with the hungry promote the perpetuation of ones genes? Quite the opposite, I'd say. Unless the acts of altruism are reciprocated by other, the grim maths show more food = more munchkins to carry on the family tradition. There must be a complicated set of factors that preserves the compassion gene.

Apr-13-12
Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: <Tampa> well it is complicated, you're right. I must have been wrong there. But I think humans and maybe Chimps also have social adaptations that aren't tied directly to evolution. Social adaptations such as altruism and a sense of "justice" or "ethics" can arise quickly in the behavioral conventions that arise in social groups, in comparison to the millions of years necessary for biological evolution.

Also, what if there's a chick who gets turned on by altruism? In this case, if some unsuspecting schmuck shows altruism in front of her, he may be surprised to find himself in the sack and then passing on his jeans, after first taking them off.

Apr-13-12
Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <Jessie Joe>

Perhaps altruism is a babe magnet. One wonders how such attraction squares with raising chitlins. Maybe getting by on less leads to more intelligence. Ya gotta be clever to split that marmot 4 ways.

Apr-13-12
Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: Well <Howard> gets a lot of chicks and I happen to know he's something of a marmot conaisseur as well. Maybe we should ask him, or his wife Arriba!

Recall that her name is actually spelled <Arriba!> so if you want to add an exclamation point to it, there'd have to be two:

<Arriba!!>

  hms123: The compassion gene comes into play when your childless uncle or your aunt with 6 kids takes you in out of necessity. They share genes too.

They also shared jeans, which why those 6 kids are all cross-eyed.

  Memethecat: Interesting topic. My tuppence worth: Altruism is great, but its the playground of those who have plenty, or even just enough. It might be a fairly new phenomenon that started to appear after we converted to an agrarian society, with stockpiles of grain & herds of whatever. I've thankfully got no experience of famine or real hunger, but I'm sure, under those conditions, the luxury's of charity, kindness & altruism would be gone in a snap & be replaced by our original animalism. A few 1st hand accounts by Japanese POWs & concentration camp inmates shows this to be so. The worlds most sincere philanthropist would be feral in a fortnight IMVVVHO.

Survival rocks, everything else is window dressing.

As for getting into someone's knickers, absolutely, as long as its real, women have got good antennae, men not so much.
