Disrupting Wetiko, combating evil in the decentralized world with Paul Levy.
Weigh in on your sentiment while watching at divvy_debate.consider.it
Where we find consensus we can collaborate in order to cooperate more effectively. This experimental Divvy Debate seeks to identify where consensus is possible to create a less destructive society and identify the tensions inhibiting positive change.
Format: An ideal group size of about 4.5 panelists suggesting possible consensus in broadcast audio/video zoom room with wisdom of the crowd feedback in divvy_debate.consider.it 1/2 hour to 1,5 hour. we finish when we finish, the requirement for panelists is to be there at least 1/2 hour.
Dispelling Wetiko by Paul Levy– “There is a contagious psychospiritual disease of the soul, a parasite of the mind, that is currently being acted out en masse on the world stage via a collective psychosis of titanic proportions. This mind-virus—which Native Americans have called “wetiko”—covertly operates through the unconscious blind spots in the human psyche, rendering people oblivious to their own madness and compelling them to act against their own best interests.“ Read More

Neil Postman wrote Amusing ourselves to death and Technopoly. These books elaborate on the issue of technology and humanity coming together. Technology relies on a different language entirely than humans do. The reliance on technology has created a gap in meaning between groups of people on how to communicate about shared problems. The ability to plan is based on agreements in meaning leading to agreements in plans. Therefore the ability to create consensus is determined by agreements in meanings before it can manifest. This also applies at a psychological level when attempting to face inner aspects of the self, seldom described in words except in mythological and spiritual ways.
A common issue with consensus is agreeing on meanings and sets of meanings. So the ability to develop heuristics and plans goes a long way to how people agree. Agreement is really all about concurrent meanings occurring for the same purpose. The ability for a large group of people to experience an event concurrently lets them share the meaning of the event. So this discusses how information jumbles the ability to reach consensus. Information is not occurring the same way or at the same time for everyone. So it ultimately rests in the case of giving everyone the same information or changing authority levels of people who have the right information against those who do not. Wetiko embodies this idea of how people are attracted to belief systems based on experiences leading to a bad outcome. The ability to have awareness is essential to overcoming these aggregate effects. The only way to give a systemic method of awareness relies primarily on visual languages and planning to learn how to use these symbols in a specific way. But there are more tools available than that in 2016. Most of these tools are decentralized and highly effective at causing group momentum towards specific enterprises.
Some tools include planning theories and heuristics. But some common tools involve DAGs and Petri nets to visualize complex systems THese are described as ways to model how agreement is an ecological mechanism of referential temporospatial systems. So the ability to construct a language that is domain independent is key to creating a temporospatial system. And the ability to reference manifolds rather than the particular instances is the process this language enables. michael
Today we can podcast youtube live zoom plus consider.it for Oxford style or other debating format. The debate arena is open to any debate style.
This is the platform we have today where we can experiment and gain experience while hopefully getting sponsors for 1.0 features. We hope to produce a few high quality debates to give us credibility.
Memetic Engineering 101
Bertrand Russell proclaimed that with one false statement he could prove anything. Myths commonly believed and facts known to be true but not generally believed plague humanity. False beliefs make us all unwitting participants in memetic processes against both self and mutual interest. Wetiko (Archonic) malignant egophrenia mass epidemic can destroy or awaken humanity. We can identify tensions in belief in science and society and bring together the various perspectives in the hope of exposing the truths and myths in each perspective.
The following is a process being evolved. This is a snapshot of the mechanisms we are following today. Tomorrow it will be adapted and will change before we even run our first debate. Participate is the current version here.
Can memetic entities having real effect in this world be considered physical? How are they distinct from other quantum causality? E.g. Wetiko/Archonic. Is information physical?
Was Einstein Wrong? (Purpose: Dispelling the commonly believed myths surrounding uncertainty and non-locality). – Jim Whitescvarver; TBD
Is two party system good for democracy? – TBD
Is the science settled? -TBD
Do we need more gun control? Or How should gun control be improved?
Does having government back doors into security improve or diminish national security?
Is taxing income and sales ethical? Are incentives for capital gains right for america? Are low capital gains taxes good just because income tax is bad?
Is there hope for humanity?
Bitcoin Macroeconomics is excited to bring light to an exciting project that is taking off like spontaneous combustion and it entails cryptocurrency and collaboration in a system determined to enhance the social aspect in the cryptoeconomy and yet protect individual personal identification, privacy, and security.
I am seeking alternatives in life and I am enjoying the high technology that is so cutting edge that it’s almost better to dive in where the hockey puck is going to be rather than otherwise not. I researched slock.it and I became fascinated with the smart contract as it related to slocks (smart locks, which are built with smart contracts), and yet they gifted society with the DAO contract. For those of you that may not know it, Christoph Jentzsch is a founder of Slock.it and also wrote the “code” for the DAO, a decentralized autonomous organization, and at one time 166 million dollars (USD equivalent) in 28 days was raised, yet and DAO token holders could buy in and have equity with their tokens and vote on how the funds, millions of $$$, could be used and be rewarded autonomously yet as the voting public.
Well the DAO did have some problems, including a hack that is being heroically resolved with a “soft” fork on the blockchain. But another problem emerged with a chaotic voting procedure as the proposals for the DAO ensued. That’s a lot of money invested into “tokens”. And yet proposals still were vetted and public debate began. But it was chaotic and handled through the Ethereum “wallet” and blockchain. DAO tokens were created with the Ethereum blockchain. So people or investors (whoever they may be) invested and had voting rights. This is a good place to start and it was the founder of the DAOs intention that people vote for the benefit of the DAO, yet the period from the inception to the proposal vetting to the hack was chaotic to say the least. As a DAO token holder, you had to pay attention, as well you should.
DAO 2.0 is emerging like spontaneous combustion.
DivvyDAO came about in a coalescing affect as the Ethereum Cooperative came in contact with DivvyDAO,founded by Jim Whitescarver – a well organized and determined guru on collaborative learning models and hellbent on protecting identity, reputation, privacy and personal security in the cryptoeconomy and the world going forward.
Public discourse is arrived from we the individual. We start as the individual and coalesce and have the ability to use the technology for what it is there for, not to spy on us, or render working people jobless, but to put the social aspect in the mix, with built in value that involves systems of governance that will offer a proper medium and this will involve public discourse, equal opportunity, uncensored, decentralized, and DivvyDAO dollars.
With spontaneous combustion comes a blog, a forum for voting opinions, and already we are building a system for public debate with moderation built in and real debates that are timed, and get this – with Consider.it on the side in live time that people can vote on in a live debate or group discussion. This will not only benefit decisions for this token and projects associated with it, but also the rest of general society as the ramifications are perfect, alternatively speaking. People can debate with the same questions, unlike the theater seen on Fox News or CNN. But we will offer this forum for public debate on the DivvyDAO going forward in a collaborative fashion. And yet the same functions can be allowed for any debate, and they can be as crazy as you can imagine. We are looking at incorporating a voting system for the content of the debate and blogs, etc complete with DivvyDAO tokens, and hope to involve inclusion of many and arrive at the best and reward the best and advance the ideas in the pipeline. And over the top, Virtual Reality is being thrown out there for a medium be it a board room setting or any setting. The world is truly ours to build and we can do it via the blockchain. DivvyDAO is the project that will combust soon.
Here’s a look at what’s going on:
divvy.consider.it to obtain proposal solicit sentiment and solicit participation
VOIP chat server for free and open uncensored discussion.
Applications of divvy tools for cooperative applications beyond community support
Etherium Cooperative – Divvy community collaborating on ethereum applications
Projects we want to work on:
Audio / Video for debates and proposals or group discussions
Community token exchange
Clone The DAO liquid democracy for Divvy
And that’s just for starters.
The key here will be whether or not people have the collective intelligence to take the bull by horns and take the technology in a new direction in a collective effort or whether the technology becomes stagnant or invades, spies, breaks down society, and diminishes society in a centralized fashion.
So consider decentralization. Centralization is not working unless you’re the elite. At least there are systems being built and it is exciting to be a part of a new methodology as it advances cryptocurrency.
Hello, we are all very happy to be able to be working in this exciting industry of computer science.
