A crash course in changing the world.

Evoke 2.0 - the 3D story of the Earth



Here's my own vision for EVOKE 2.0:

The grand mission of EVOKE 2.0 is to create a beautiful, informative, and meaningful three dimensional storybook of the planet Earth. This 3D "story of us" will be the Human race's calling card as humans begin to reach out into the rest of the universe, and possibly find itself in contact with other intelligent life from other planets, galaxies, and maybe even universes, or at least artificial intelligence.

The 3D book will be structured in virtual memory space, with three dimensions of the planet's existence, as experienced by Humans. One dimension of wh*** story will be three different "chapters" covering the Earth's timeline, with a set of chapters for the past, a set for the present, and a set for the future. The second dimension will be sets of three "chapters" for the three main branches of experience that we social animals have: physical (generally agreed on facts of physics, biology, chemistry, geology, astronomy, etc.), emotional (art of all forms, personal relationships), and intellectual (unproven theories, philosophy, puzzles, and otherwise asked-but-as-yet-unanswered questions, etc.). And the third dimension will be made up of all the individual humans who choose to be Agents helping to write the story book of the Earth. (Of course aliens and non-Human Earthlings are also welcome to contribute, if any happen to want to!). Each agent will, therefore, be another set of chapters, in a way.

As the game progresses, agents will be given the assignments to do one of each combination of chapters, for a total of 9 unique pieces of evidence possible, per Agent, for one in-depth "page" that is either a new creation or a news report each week for 9 weeks (plus a wrap-up week). Agents are encouraged to collaborate with other agents, and anyone else, to make the story more interconnected. Agents are especially encouraged to connect with others from all parts of the world, in some way, and translators will be available from the WBI to increase the accessibility of the game to those who don't speak English. (And mirror games will be played in several other major languages, with some crossover encouraged for those who are multilingual.) Multimedia submissions are also highly encouraged, to add even more dimension to the story, and to make it more fun!

Because telling our story is something that resonates with nearly everyone, this second version of the game will be even more popular, and will attract many, many more people, and many more people will be enthusiastic about participating more deeply, for a much fuller game. The point system will naturally be gone, as the stories will all be equally valuable as pieces of the larger puzzle that is the wh*** of the story of us, though each agents will have the ability to link to other parts of the story that they feel reflects their own stories well, or that they are especially interested in because it's such a different story from theirs. (So maybe a "this is like my own story" and "this is very different from my own story" set of buttons that will automatically add those stories as links on one's own personal page.)

With all the agents' evidence combined, and many of the agents working collaboratively, the story of us will be fully three dimensional, and will very likely become a most precious indigenous object of the entire planet Earth.

It occurs to me that this is essentially the two dimensional Wikipedia with the added dimension of a more diverse range of perspectives of personal/emotional experience. Allowing people who aren't famous in some way to have their say, and encouraging people to share not just factual or theoretical information, but emotional experiences as well. Cool!

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
