It is challenging to anticipate who will qualify for the remaining seven slots in the 2018 challenger’s tournament; the world’s number two and three ranked players chose not to compete in the qualifying grand prix tourney this year-currently in progress, leaving just three remaining ways for them to become qualified to enter and try to win the challenger’s and the opportunity to play world chess champion Magnus Carlsen in November 2018.
The challengers 2018 has perhaps nine players that are or have been ranked over 2800 in the competition, plus 17 year old next-gen Wei Yei who is on Magnus Carlsen’s pace of advance in the ratings. Before Yei turns 18 he may equal Carlsen’s 17 year-old rating of 2780. People expect Wei Yei to challenge Magnus Carlsen for the world chess title between the years 2022 and 2030 with the interim being filled by one of chess’ mystery players with enigmatic motivation and purposes such as Fabiano Caruana, Alexander Grischuk etc.
Chess has many faces in its book of ages. Transitions three and four levels deep arise with discovered checks and double attacks appearing as if a chess engine designed them. In that regard a chess board is like the human genome; changes through genetic engineering of the human genome to correct error structures/positions may lead to discovered and double attacks because of the complexity of relationships across the helixian board with time and the complete complex of compresent pieces arrayed.
Chess is however like a multi-dimensional tic tac toe game devoid of other intellectual content. Unlike the actual void with a Higgs Field and zero point energy and virtual particular energy a chess board has just eight pieces and eight pawns with two colors and little charm, different motion freedom for pieces and some pawns sharing with electrons the inability to occupy a given space or orbit with same has determinist characteristic like those of genetic genome paradigms that cannot continue after select phase changes or in some circumstances any phase change at all. To lose one’s pawns and pieces or genetic bearing is effectively to lose the game without residual zero point energy from which to attempt a Universe restart.
Within deterministic structures without super-conduction, common structures such as power transmission lines, it might be desirable to discover some way of sending internet transmissions and affixing Wi-Fi capabilities ubiquitously. One may debate pros and cons of politics that are empowered to fund research of such matters or energy even when the era is dominated by a party of unrepentant sinners versus another of repentant sinners each trusting their leaders to enrich themselves and global oligarchs who shall rule mankind in a Soviet Union style fusion-corporate jazz utopia replete with dramatic pathos.
Hidden temporal dimensions wherein are hidden discovered chess and genomic attacks on the body politic exist for-themselves in any generation. Kleeping a balanced ecospheric and social economy is challenging through continua of leadership incapacity of popular governing bodies. Thus regular progression of players advance to challenge the reigning champions of the day from the basis of an historical pyramid of plays differing mainly just at the top.
