0-the framework for the new communication and efficiency sharing protocol
I think the whole human race knew this for a million years; and then in five thousand years of
civilisation we have lost it, because our societies got too big to carry it out. But now we have to get
started again, because it has become urgent that we communicate. We have to share our consciousness
and to be able to think together, on order to do intelligently whatever is necessary

The inherent flaws of this bounty offer and other projects being developed today.
I'd like to point out a great and fatal issue in the proposal outlined in the article below. The project
seeks to break the bitcoin hierarchy that is observably against the spirit of satoshi's gift to the world.
However sometimes what feels like philanthropy can really be seen to be the continuance of residual
pre-existing issues.
The project wants to end the centralied control that stifles creativity and freedom which bitcoin has
given us the opportunity to foster. !ut I would like to suggest that offering a monetary award for this
solution is the very problem itself" That when someone acts in the name of monetary gain# it cannot be
helped that this capitalistic model bleeds into the entire thought process and therefore corrupts and
dooms the entire project. This might be why with so much intelligence and so much technology# so
many people have failed to produce a structure in which we can model a decent democracy after. It
also may be why# even though I cannot program$develop this solution# I am able to describe the
problem in a way that renders it immediately solvable.
%ne worries as well# if the internet is wrought with this problem so bad it will not allow the flow of
significant discoveries and idea# and instead treats them with aversion# avarice# ignorance# and fear.
!ecause then even if I did propose a significant solution# it might not get recognied# heard# or 'filtered
to the top'.

Our direction
It is often helpful to know and understand our direction from the beginning. -e don't want to build a
project heading one way# and then realie later it wasn't inline with the ideal overall direction that
human civiliation should head towards. I will say this without much explanation .and besides
intelligent people will immediately identify and recognie the truth of this/ that an intelligent person or
idea should be defined as acting in the direction of cooperative wholistic efficiency. %r to be clearer#
intelligent people covet peace. Then our goal for forum ).( would be to facilitate the collection of
peaceful .and therefore intelligent/ minds in the most expedient and efficient manner possible.
-e can outline a formula# one that allows these peoples to float to the top of the hierarchy. %r since
we no longer need such a ridiculous and condescending structure# our formula might instead be to
facilitate a gravitational force that brings these people together .not top down/. -e might then be
talking about a type of physics where 'like' forces might attract rather than repel.
hat is a forum and what should be its purpose
In new "oman towns the #orum was usually located at, or $ust off, the intersection of the main north
south and eastwest streets %the &ardo and 'ecumanus(. )ll forums would have a *emple of +upiter at
the north end, and would also contain other temples, as well as the Basilica; a public weights and
measures table, so customers at the market could ensure they were not being sold short measures; and
would often have the baths nearby. )t election times, candidates would use the steps of the temples in
the forum to make their election speeches, and would e!pect their clients to come to support them.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/#orum,-./"oman-.0
%ne might envision in the new world the purpose of a forum is to facilitate the efficient exchange of
efficiency .where efficient exchange of efficiency would lead to economic ideality/. 0fficiency can
come in the form of tangible things such as goods# or technology# or less tangible things like thoughts
ideas and dialogue.
!otes on ancient democracy and our failure to capture its spirit
)thenian democracy took the form of a direct democracy, and it had two distinguishing features: the
random selection of ordinary citi1ens to fill the few e!isting government administrative and $udicial
offices,2.34 and a legislative assembly consisting of all )thenian citi1ens.2.54 )ll eligible citi1ens were
allowed to speak and vote in the assembly, which set the laws of the city state
)thenian democracy was not only direct in the sense that decisions were made by the assembled
people, but also the most direct in the sense that the people through the assembly, boule and courts of
law controlled the entire political process and a large proportion of citi1ens were involved constantly
in the public business.2./4 6ven though the rights of the individual were not secured by the )thenian
constitution in the modern sense %the ancient 7reeks had no word for 8rights82.04(, the )thenians
en$oyed their liberties not in opposition to the government but by living in a city that was not sub$ect to
another power and by not being sub$ects themselves to the rule of another person

"ow many people are needed for inevitable and immediate wholistic change#
-e might suspect initially that '$) of the world be needed to enact great change. 2ertainly we can
think of it as a tipping point. !ut if we think we need this many people to expedite this process it is
because we are not thinking in terms of forum ).(. In a hyper efficient forum process we might wonder
what happens when we get the top '(# )(# or '(( minds together in a very accommodating environment
for .bohmian/ dialogue. 3nd as we will soon understand# people not in this group will have the ability
to both simultaneously participate and not participate which until now would be viewed as paradoxical
in a forum setting.

!otes on new age online democratic models and integrity systems
6aybe new ideas and projects are currently being developed and implemented with the same
realiation that we now have the ability to improve democracy. !ut in order to do this we must
understand where it fails today and where it succeeds. -e must take great caution not to let
individualistic and capitalistic assumptions and beliefs creep into our design and thought process.
3gain to be simple and direct we should look for an efficient system .free flow of voting/# a system that
is secure .trust-able/# and a system designed to be free from capitalistic influence. There are great
models today# however we mustn't forget today's voting agents have been infused by economic
influence. Therefore a solution to the problem of the bitcoin community# re7uires the facilitation of a
80-education. !ut it is really an 9:-education# and this is why a new voting system re7uires forum
).( to be a total and complete solution. -e want to facilitate the exchange of intelligent ideas as well
as have a clear view of what an intelligent group of peoples might come up with in dialogue together.
-e should clearly point out and remember that the main issues with today's democracy and integrity
systems is they are fuelled on capitalism. -e should expect this to change in the near future as 'money'
is separated from being a store of wealth# and starts to become viewed more like a public commodity.
-e shouldn't covet wealth# especially of the divisive kind# but rather efficiency# and so we want to fuel
the world with efficiency rather than wealth.

"ow might forum 2.0 work
It might be helpful and faster to just list out some concepts for forum ).(# so it may be possible to intuit
the wholistic design$model of it. It is likely this technology exists in some form# or will naturally arise
in the very near future# and that the real solution here is just the combination of it with integrity check
systems and a secure voting system.
-to be able to drag and drop different boxes in layouts on to a central 'desktop' or 'bulletin board'
-to be able to drag threads or subjects or even posts from other forums to a single user profile
-to be able to merge thread from multiple forums
- to have a single user name on every forum regardless of what one initially signed up with
-to make every drag and dropped addition to the bulletin board completely customiable.
-ability to create and share bulletin board user profiles
-ability to filter in our out# unwanted content# posts# users etc.
Forum integrity check systems and voting systems.
%bviously forums can have their own voting and check systems and these can be combined with other
social platforms .and forums/# to create integrity rating systems with more favourable confidence
intervals. 5oker players need this solution for their game# so they might use their own system while
piggy backing with reddit's system as some poker players will fre7uent both communities. 2ertainly a
large aggregate from multiple social networking platforms renders this aspect solved.
hat does forum 2.0 change#
!ecause users can now completely control their environment there is an immediate end of the
capitalistic hierarchical structure upon implementation. 9ser's are able to structure their own
hierarchies without blocking each others ability to make hierarchies. Then because these profiles can be
saved and shared# one can see how certain other individuals might view one or multiple forums.
-e can also immediately see that there is an end to the capitalistic model of spam advertising# as users
can choose not to pull advertising layouts to their bulletins. This seems not at all insignificant.
9sers can choose what posts they see from who# using filters that are able to sort through a thread and
pull out only the wanted posts. ?orums can be arranged in this way# and any way one chooses.
This creates a )
nd
level of forums# in which those users still functioning on the '
st
level will not be able
to see every conversation .immediate incentive to change/. It also allows certain groups to choose to
not participate with certain users viewed as obvious trolls# while not censoring the trolls ability to both
read and comment on the conversation. I suspect if there is any aspect of this that the general
population will misunderstand it is this# it is also the most significant aspect of this writing. With forum
..9 you can instantly do things that are not generally thought possible.
I will refrain from going deeper into this aspect although no doubt specific examples and explanations
will be needed and wanted. ?or now we should remember our goal is to put together that certain group
of tipping point individuals that will lead us towards hyper efficient peaceful cooperation. 2ertainly
private groups will remain# but it is the intelligent people we want to find themselves# and they will
generally always have their dialogue in a publicly accessible forum.

$rogramming and %eveloping Forum 2.0
If we truly understand the totality of this concept then we can see there is very little work and effort
needed to make this a reality. In fact over the last year we might have notice the internet has shifted
towards facilitating this new model. Bocial media platforms have slowly changed to facilitate multiple
device platforms. -e are simply thinking of creating a customiable device platformD it's a very small
and basic change as a concept. Bo then we must develop the tool to pull the layouts to the bulletin
board# and we should be able to see that as we develop this tool# the internet can .and will/
simultaneously move to support it. The alternative choice for users would be to roam '
st
level 'ghost
forums'.
I will also note at this point we are really talking about a new way of browsing or a new function of the
internet# free from the chains of restrictive capitalistic models.
&onclusion
I mean to point out the true problem outlined by %livier Eanssens# which is really that our approach is
wrong. -e cannot fund a freedom project with capitalism and expect desirable results. Instead we
must approach these problems creatively# intelligently# peacefully# and cooperatively# in order to have
the possibility of breaking free from our chains. The truth of the matter is# we put these chains on
ourselves and we keep them on ourselves by our own misapplication of economic principles. In order
to truly rewrite the democratic process# to expedite our decision making and integrity check system
processes# we need to move the technology and function of a forum in tandem. Bo the truest solution to
bringing back the spirit of bitcoin involves bringing both democracy and the function of forums back to
their ancient roots or at least their intended roots. %nce we have done that we can begin to understand
and enact the communication protocol laid out by 1r. 1avid !ohm. Bo now we might better understand
why Batoshi was so effective in dialogue with such a small .but intelligent/ group# and why Batoshi
might have left once the project was started. 6y writing here suggests Batoshi dissolved Fodwin's
Gaw# and somehow I figure this specific realiation might make a lot of sense to certain peoples.
