Progressed synastry as important as Natal
« on: October 09, 2017, 02:19:18 AM »
Hi all,

I've been at the Starlove thing for about 7 years now, busy writing a web service that can be accessed by users wearing a LED badge that displays how compatible you are when you meet someone at, say, a club that is standing in front of you. The LED light displays red, amber or green based on the Starlove algorithms in the cloud. So when you are in the proximity of someone (the closest person) you know how compatible you generally would be with them, if you both have the Starlove app enabled at the time. Still trying to find Bluetooth technology that is not too expensive to apply as I want the badges to be very cheap to manufacture. You can get the related tech that does things like open your garage door via your cellphone using Bluetoooth but it too expensive for a toy/gimmick to implement.

During this time I realized that progressed synastry is at least as important as natal, mainly because it's your current situation. No good having a wonderful natal synastry if your current is all viciously messed up, and as you know, progressed aspects can last many years. Most synastry software does not even take progressed synastry into account. For example, my sister and her first husband had great progressed  synastry back in 1985 when they met and got married. Their natal is average, current progressed is terrible: they now hate each other with a passion. I think this kind of thing happens with a lot of marriages that fail.

Wishful thinking, but a fun idea to create. It works pretty well... enough to base a marriage on based on most of the unhappy marriages I've checked out. For example, see how Starlove gives Brad and Angelina a clear avoidance rating and accurately predicted the two years that they split up: - I see they are now kind of together again and you'll see how the progressed let up on them to at least enable them to bear each other or work things out to an endurable extent.

Even general Sun sign compatibility (which is also built into the algorithms) can be most helpful when looking for partners:

Wow! What fun Adrian...

I think the Rave Set will eat it up... But where do you afix the LED when standing in the middle of the desert at Burning Man and you aren't wearing any clothes?

Curious what John Gottman and Nan Silver might make of this technology and how it jives with their algorithmic work where Gottman identified patterns in thousands of hours of video. He teaches in his book The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work how to have a say in the process without letting the planets run amok. The evidence is compelling that regardless of sign compatibility, there is work to be done in relationship.

Still, pretty cool stuff you are building... keep it going... and good luck with it...

I tried to run Starlove software but found it to be 100% incompatible with Microsoft's algorithms! I do have the freedom to disable the latter, but who dares to outsmart a SmartScreen?!

One thing i know - this 'AI'* stuff is something we can't keep ignoring:

"while I believe that my book is likely to be seriously wrong and misleading, I think that the alternative views that have been presented in the literature are substantially worse-including the default view, or 'null hypothesis,' according to which we can for the time being safely or reasonably ignore the prospect of superintelligence. " Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies, by Nick Bostrom

"Society is changing, one learning algorithm at a time. Machine learning is remaking science, technology, business, politics, and war." The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World, by Pedro Domingos

It has also been changing Astrology, of course! The name of Alphee Lavoie comes to mind, but this article from an International Journal of Computer Applications, was something new:

"Astrological Prediction for Profession Doctor using Classification Techniques of Artificial Intelligence." Chaplot, Neelam & Dhyani, Praveen & P. Rishi, O. (2015).

The StarLove algorithms can be tested online, without conflicts:  :-*

I also wish Adol many Lucky Days and hope that the time he has dedicated to Starlove, doesn't turn into a seven-year itch.  ;D
