(33001) 1997 CU29, reasoned reject

(33001) 1997 CU29 is a classical Kuiper belt object discovered in February of 1997. It has a perihelion of 42.2 AU and an aphelion of 45.2 AU. It has an inclination of 1.4º.

When (33001) 1997 CU29 faces the decision-making process, has a great intuition about the limitations and obstacles that are not obvious at all (resonance 4:7 Neptune). Besides, it has a great sense of opportunity in terms of the appropriate way to continue with the development (resonance 6:7 with Pluto).

Computer chess programs

In 1950, before there were computers designed to play chess, Claude Shannon wrote an article in which accurately predicted two main types of searches for any chess program, which he called 'Type A' and 'Type B'.

The 'Type A' programs use all the processing power to calculate all the progressions of possible moves and evaluate the end result (2004 GV9), while the 'Type B' programs incorporate criterion that rejects the positions clearly worse, analysing in greater depth the positions with the best outlook, Something similar to how act human beings, because what characterizes the human expert players, it is not the quantity of analyzed movements, but their ability to recognize patterns, something that they acquire through experience.   

The first chess programs obtained better results if they were designed in accordance with the algorithm of 'Type A', but in the late nineties, after the discovery of (33001) 1997 CU29, the programs of 'Type B' began to gain ground. (Wikipedia: Computer chess)

Diferences with (79360) Sila-Nunam

The discovery of (33001)1997 CU29 was overstriked by the discovery of (79360) Sila-Nunam, whose orbit is very similar. Both are related to decision-making by rational criteria, the main diference is that (79360) Sila-Nunam has an extremely limited margin of time to choose an answer. In most cases it is an almost instinctive reaction (16:9 resonance with Neptune). 

Also, in the case of (79360) Sila-nunam, the decision is made after a sense of direction that comes from the integration of high and low in very diferent ways, like in the movies "The Game" (1997), "Sliding Doors" (1997) and "Red Corner" (1997).

(69988) 1998 WA31, friendly empathy

(69988) 1998 WA31 is a scattered disc object in 2:5 resonance with Neptune, discovered in November of 1998. It has a perihelion of 31.66 AU and an aphelion of 79.18 AU (scattered disc object with medium aphelion). The semimajor axis is at 55.42 AU. It has an orbital period of 413 years. It reached the perihelion in February of 1967. It has a diameter of about 140 km.

  • Inclination: 9.4º (Aries).
  • Perihelion: 330º59' (Pisces; semisextile 30º [=trine 120º > 0º Cancer/Scorpio], 0º59' orb).
  • Ascending node: 20º44' (Aries; seminonile 20º [=cuadrinonile 160º > 0º Libra], 0º44' orb).
  • Argument of perihelion: 310º15' (Aquarius).

(69988) 1998 WA31 is related with the typical friendy empathy of cartoons characters, like Balu in the movie "The Jungle Book" (1967), "Teletubies" (TV, 1998) or the character of the video game "Little Big Planet" (PS3, 2008).

(87555) 2000 QB243, hypersensibility to conflict

(87555) 2000 QB243 is a scattered disc object discovered in August of 2000. It reached the perihelion in April of 1992.

It has a perihelion of 15.26 AU and an aphelion of 54.36 AU (scattered disc object with very low aphelion). The semimajor axis is at 34.81 AU. It has an orbital period of 205 years. It has an inclination of  6.7º.

Orbital resonance:
9:22 with Uranus (99.8%)
4:5 with Neptune (99.5%)
1:7 with Saturn (99.4%)
6:5 with Pluto (99.2%)

The emotional awareness of (87555) 2000 QB243 is oriented toward any detail in the behavior of others that reflects antagonism. So that, it is able to perceive potential conflicts well in advance, allowing to rectify the situation or to intervene in the proper way, like in the movie "Meet the Parents" (2000).
