a. Source uncertainty, H, of the dual information source of institutional collective consciousness, as parametized by degrees of inattentional blindness, X = IAB and rate distortion Y = RD. Note the relatively gentle peak at low values of X, Y. H is generated as the product of two error functions. b. Generalized Onsager treatment of figure 4a. S = H (X, Y) - XdH/dX - YdH/dY. The regions marked A, B, and C represent realms of resilient quasi-stablity, divided by barriers defined by the relative peaks in S. Transition among them requires a forcing mechanism. From another perspective, limiting resources or imposing social disintegration from the outside – driving down H in figure 4a, would drive the system to the lower plain of C, in which the system would then become trapped in states having high levels of rate distortion and inattentional blindness.
