Well no, maybe not: maybe the new equation is just more samsara.
The phrase "acting so as to maximize future freedom of action" could be interpreted to mean things like:
- Become rich
- Become politically powerful
- Minimize your prior obligations which impede your freedom of action
That third sounds like it might be Buddhist, if it means, "people without attachments can do more" (e.g. if they don't have family obligations to hold them back) ... but then again consider the Vinaya rules, which dictate limits on what people are able (allowed) to do.
Buddhism isn't entirely about becoming powerful ("future freedom of action") ... it's more to do with "self-control" and freedom (liberation) from suffering.
The descriptions of "Entropica" show I think that it's not intended as a description of mainstream Buddhism:
By the same token, Entropica is broadly applicable to problems in autonomous defense, logistics and transportation.
Finally, here we see Entropica spontaneously discovering and executing a buy-low, sell-high strategy on a simulated range traded stock, successfully growing assets under management exponentially.
On the other hand, the "Entropica" model could be interpreted to mean "don't have a limited view of self, form new connections" ... so I suppose it depends on how you interpret the metaphor
