consensus and the zeroth law of robotics
"A community like wikiversity would ultimately/often face the problem on the meanings of "community", "consensus" and "community consensus". In Azimov's science fiction series "Foundation", R. Daniel Olivaw has faced a similar problem on the zeroth law of robotics and maintain for millenia a delicate balance in his positronic brain, which ultimately became so complex that it was unstable. Can we learn something from this analogy?"
