Definition / description

This project combines hundreds or thousands of small specialized ideas ("concepts"), which we seek to combine into a single integrated framework with a perfectly smooth connection between all the pieces.

We want to define these pieces as emerging from the continuum, driven by human motivation and taking infinitely fluent form, capable of describing absolutely anything to any desired/motivated degree of detail.

Of course, this is an amazingly difficult challenge, something like a dream out of mythology. Philosophy and mathematics and indeed the entire world of human thinking today and throughout history are and always have been fragmented into endless numbers of little pieces, combined in locally-specific ways as make-do heuristics that were good enough to meet immediate needs.

But we are following the alluring magnetism of a comprehensive vision of wholeness, of integration, of unity, of "truth and beauty". We think this is motivated. We think it is part of collective human evolution -- something like "the destiny of civilization".

And it seems that collective evolution today is reaching a critical point. Yes, we have "soiled our nest", like baby birds. Throughout history, we took what we needed, and we acted in a local and immediate context, with a short-sighted perspective, without respect to "the whole" -- at least partly because we had no idea that the whole even existed.

But now we do. We "saw the earth from space" and life was transformed. Immediately, projects based on "The Whole Earth" began to emerge. A new ethic of wholeness began to emerge at the leading edge. Our awareness of large-scale issues has been growing for at least fifty years, as scientists began defining and announcing critical global-scale issues like "the ozone layer". Hundreds of similar influences are shaping leading-edge thinking today.

This vision was formed many years ago under the influence of social and cultural transformation, and the emerging new capacity of electronic networks. Computer science has been fascinating and potent since its birth, and today it is reaching amazing levels. And correspondingly, the collective human crisis of short-sighted evolution is reaching critical levels.

Today, this project, running in a high-capacity intent database system, supports what I like to call a "mind storm" -- a kind of large-scale and semi-chaotic process that involves bringing many pieces together into creative relationship, and letting inspiration and creativity respond to emerging new combinations that seem to make sense.

As I work on this project, I create new categories. I add features any time I can think of one, and think it is worth doing. This framework seems scalable. I can "stick new stuff in there" any time the inclination arises. The Closed Loop ideal and vision is pretty amazing. Yes, it is mind-blowing, and "something entirely different" from the way we have always understood reality. But I find it inspiring and its credibility and feasibility seem to be growing. I am excited about this creative process. Given time and endurance, I think it's fair to expect something of consequence...
