There’s a lot of valid questions I’ve been asked about my work and the vision it expresses, although these questions are usually asked in a very poor – even invalid – format, so I have to reinterpret the question, in order to help the querent understand their own question, and therefore understand the answer.

I know that more than half the people of the world believe in something they would call “spiritual”, and for any of you whom have read much of what I’ve written, it won’t come as a surprise to you that I feel sorry for these people – I pity the adult who cannot see past religion. I hope the religious amongst you will read this nonetheless, as I think it offers you something far greater and more wonderful than the brainwashing death-cult you currently follow.
So in this article I want to deal with the question:
“how would religion fare if it had to take responsibility for the consequences of its actions.”

If you design a system based on the correct interpretation of valid data, there’s a thing you should experience at some stage, and which validates the development track you’re on, and I have experienced this thing at least a few dozen times … it goes something like this ( to provide the most recent example ): Continue reading “Unexpected evidence”
I’m sure many of you are concerned about the impact of mining on ecology, but like myself many of you may also be fans of technology, and others might read this out of scepticism for the idea that there’s any truly sustainable and ecologically friendly way to conduct mining operations.
So this article is for the purpose of laying out a hypothetical extrapolation as to how the Open Empire framework might deal with the need for minerals in the future. Continue reading “Mining in the future”
I found an old screen-capture image I’d taken from Facebook a few years ago, and it inspired me to write this post, which discusses how an alternate economic framework, based on consequences rather than property, would deal with such things as censorship, societal values, and moderation of behaviour.

Ok, this is a big question with a lot of unknowns – and thus one of the longer articles I’ve written so far – but it is precisely the fact that I can’t predict an exact number, that has led me to design everything in the way that I have done … so let’s have a look at how things break down in terms of monetary cost, but let’s also first look at what the vision is actually trying to achieve in the short versus long term. At the end we’ll also have a look at the ROI for this investment. Continue reading “How much money under the status quo, would it take to implement the Open Empire Foundation vision?”
As a thought for the end of the year, let’s just go through a general guide to maximise the acceleration of healing of the planet, its ecosystems, its species, and human civilisation.

A simple way to see for yourself the flaws of capitalist reasoning, is to create a spreadsheet which calculates the cost of a hypothetical scenario. What makes this conclusive, is to pick a hypothetical scenario which represents something the world desperately needs, but is complex, difficult, and time consuming to plan and execute, so it needs a lot of support to get it off the ground.

In the year 1980 development began on the Cassini-Huygens expedition spacecraft, comprised of an orbiter (Cassini) and a lander (Huygens) – which you can read more about here (link).
