Here is a video of Jack Ma (founder of +Alibaba.com) talking about the fact that education must change now for our children to have relevant skills in the future:

But neither he nor anyone else has a proposed education system that is scalable and can continuously evolve alongside societal needs. The education system explained at this link is the only concept that meets that criteria:

Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, was recently quoted saying AI is “one of the most important things that humanity is working on. It’s more profound than, I don’t know, electricity or fire...”

Agreed, AI is a powerful thing!...

There's a lot attention being focused on Cryptocurrency as of lately. Here's what I have to say!...

Why Cryptocurrency Will Fail Until it is Based on Tangible Trust

In the future, cryptocurrency will be the only Internationally accepted and used money. But before that happens all government and private cryptocurrency experiments will fail until it becomes based on Tangible Trust. In order to explain the new paradigm of Tangible Trust, new paradigms on economics, money and government need to be explained first.

New Paradigm On Economics

The Commerce System, Government System and Financial System comprise the three divisions of what will be defined henceforth as an ‘economic structure’. An economic structure makes it possible for humans to work together and evolve as a society. The growth of society stimulates the growth of innovation, which in-turn stimulates the growth of productivity. This process then launches a self-reinforcing reverse loop where the growth of productivity then stimulates the growth of innovation, which in turn stimulates the growth of society. In contrast, before an economic structure existed, a low-innovation/low-productivity tribal structure was the largest potential group size humans could work together as.

Within an economic structure, humans interchange fluidly between three classes:

-The Working Class that endeavor within the Commerce System.
-The Government Class that endeavor within the Government System.
-The Speculation Class that endeavor within the Financial System.

These three classes and the economic structure have mainly evolved within what will be defined henceforth as a Creative Economic Structure. It would seem logical to separate out only the positive outcomes through history as being part of something defined as ‘creative’. But the negative outcomes in a society are part of a Creative Economic Structure as well. This is because positive outcomes can only exist if its relative opposite of negative outcomes exists as well. So within societal evolution, both positive and negative outcomes are a beneficial part of a Creative Economic Structure. The benefits of negative outcomes play the role of imparting on society powerful lessons of what not to do. In the long-term, the conflict and adversity of negative outcomes strengthens the Creative Economic Structure. That is why all the negative outcomes through history from; economic collapse, revolutions, war, subjugation, occupation, wealth concentration, depression, recession, bankruptcy, exploitation, default, corruption, speculation, fraud, sabotage, debt, austerity, crime syndicates, bribery, schemes, collusion, conspiracies, hidden assets, regulations, unemployment, poverty, mismanagement and many more, are all still allocated under the umbrella of a Creative Economic Structure. So that begs the question: If both positive and negative outcomes are part of a Creative Economic Structure, then what does a Reactive Economic Structure look like? To answer that question a new paradigm on money and government needs to be given.

New Paradigm On Money

At the macro level, money is the energy that powers the economic structure. At the micro level, money is simply any means for exchanging goods and services. Therefore, everything from commodities to precious metals to paper currency to digital units can be considered money. Commodities and precious metals worked as money in an economic structure for many millennia. This type of money is stable because it is in limited supply and itself has a recognized inherent usable value; in essence, this is tangible asset money. The first evolutionary step away from using tangible asset money came in printed-paper notes that represented and-were-backed-by precious metals. The next step came from governments that experimented with printing paper currency that was backed by nothing. This type of paper currency, called fiat money, has been tried and has failed over 600 times throughout history. The median time for the circulation of these currencies had been less than 20 years before the fiat money collapsed or was replaced. Voltaire gave a clear reason for fiat money failure: “Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value – zero”. This type of money is exactly what the U.S. has been using since 1971. That is the year that the U.S. went of the gold standard and began printing fiat money. But that means fiat money in the U.S. has been in circulation for over twice as long as the previous median time. This unique outcome is result of the historically high level of U.S. innovation throughout all three divisions of the economic structure due to the unique freedoms and culture of the nation. This innovation has fostered a steady increasing level of productivity by the Working Class. In turn, the sustained increase in productivity by the Working Class is what continues to give a sustained value to fiat money. So the two factors of productivity and fiat money value are intertwined. This is due to the Working Class using fiat money in the Commerce System by default because they are already obligated to use it to pay taxes to the Government System. That obligation is relevant because the government does not need to transfer fiat money back to itself in the form of taxes from the Working Class since the government can print as much fiat money as it wants. So the main reason for taxes is to force the Working Class to use the government’s fiat money in the Commerce System in order to impart a tangible value to worthless fiat money.

The governments in the rest of the industrialized nations around the world have followed this seemingly successful U.S. model and extended the value longevity of their fiat money. Other nations that were not productive enough and/or printed too much money had their fiat money value collapse. So if U.S. productivity decreases and/or too much fiat money is printed, then that also will initiate the process to significantly devalue U.S. fiat money. This will trigger a domino effect that will end with the collapse of U.S. fiat money. Such collapses happened sporadically over 600 times through history and U.S. fiat money will not escape that same outcome.

So this entire process, from the time the government introduces fiat money to the finale of its inevitable collapse, is what makes an economic structure a Reactive Economic Structure. In order to understand why this specific process is so destructive, especially compared to the incredibly negative outcomes that happen in a Creative Economic Structure, a further explanation on government using fiat money needs to be given.

New Paradigm On Government

A government claims to use fiat money as an apparatus to fund itself and the rest of the economic structure without having to rely on limited tangible asset money. That on its own seems like valid policy and one that is parroted by economists in academia. Except this funding apparatus is only the outer façade. Behind the facade, the fiat money causes something altogether different. The reason governments continually try to use fiat money has to do with the inherent nature and self-interest of every government to attain three desired outcomes. That is to:

1. Increase in size.
2. Attain more power in comparison to other governments.
3. Have more control over the people it governs.

Tangible asset money slows and weakens the government’s attempt to achieve those desired outcomes. While fiat money accelerates and strengthens the government’s attempt to achieve those desired outcomes. The freedom to print unlimited volumes of Fiat money empowers governments to institute laws and bureaucratic mechanisms to transfer actual tangible assets away from the Working Class to itself. This transfer is done through government ‘purchasing’ of real estate, natural resources, commodities, products and services with fiat money. This allows the Government System to grow with little constraint or accountability and become what is now understood as the intractable Deep State.

In the modern economic structure, fiat money is also transferred from the government to national/international organizations within the Financial System with which government has a symbiotic relationship. As a result, there is tremendous growth of speculation within the Financial System that fiat money spawns. The Financial System become so aggressively leveraged and ingrained in the economic structure (e.g. Wall Street) that its new culture actually starts corrupting the Government and Working Class.

But this deceptive outcome of the government using fiat money remains unrecognized by the Working Class as long as the fiat money maintains its value to be usable in the Commerce System. Furthermore, the fiat money plays the role of a new synthetic energy to the economic structure and deceptively produces short-term benefits for the Working Class that were not there before. This causes a deceptive short-term increase in productivity and other seemingly positive outcomes for society. The government uses this time frame to further increase in size and transfer more tangible assets to itself. But the bigger the Government and Financial Systems become, the greater their burden on the economic structure and the more difficult it becomes for the Working Class to be productive. Because there is little constraint or accountability, this process will keep advancing until the fiat money collapses due to decreasing productivity and/or at the point when the majority of tangible assets end up in the control of the Government and Financial System. Either way the use of fiat money by the government is just a deceptive wealth transfer process that ends up being a form of real ‘taxation without representation’ that victimizes the Working Class.

It may seem like this deceptive process is still another negative outcome within a Creative Economic Structure; where the Working Class just loses trust in the government. But it is not. It is an outcome within a Reactive Economic Structure because this process ends up damaging society. The reason the process damages society is that people lose trust in the money itself, not just each other. This is a critical point because in a Creative Economic Structure mistrust and conflict between people is not only accepted, but is in fact expected. Yet, start breaking the trust in money and society shifts to a Reactive Economic Structure. This is because once trust starts breaking in the money itself, a process is initiated of tearing apart and devolving the societal structure back into a tribal structure. In isolated instances through history, where nations used fiat money, the reactive outcomes just damaged the nation temporarily and did not affect the world at large. But now fiat money has been integrated deeper and used longer than it has ever been before. So the damage to economic structures and society is potentially catastrophic.

The solution is to understand that it is not the tangible asset condition that people value in money. It is the ‘Tangible Trust’ condition people value in money. Consequently, it does not matter what type of money is used within an economic structure as long as Tangible Trust is the foundational condition of money. Yes it is odd, that in the light of all the incredibly negative outcomes within a Creative Economic Structure, this seemingly negligible condition of Tangible Trust is the single most important linchpin to making sure the economic structure remains creative and society can evolve.

The dichotomy is that once it is understood that Tangible Trust is the foundational condition of money then using tangible assets as money in a modern economic structure becomes an outdated and primitive concept.

New Paradigm On: Tangible Trust Cryptocurrency (TTC)

As the monetary wealth will evaporate, in the aforementioned coming collapse of fiat money, the destructive domino effect on globally interconnected economic structures will lead to the start of societal disintegrating. The economic and societal breakdown will push the entire world to teeter on the edge of chaos. At that point, economist will understand the correlation between the chaos and the fiat money being used within the economic structure. Governments, aligned with multinational corporations, around the world will then be forced to take an evolutionary action where they will, in-their-own self-interest, create a sustainable form of money; A cryptocurrency based on Tangible Trust.

Tangible Trust Cryptocurrency (TTC) will require three constructs:

-Verifiable Transparency at the macro level.
-Verifiable Anonymity at the micro level.
-Verifiable Security at the macro and micro level.

Verifiable Transparency means that the total amount of TTC units that are generated, earned and distributed by government is openly accounted for and certified by an independent accounting agency. Government will generate new TTC units in economic response to increasing or decreasing productivity and population. This will establish a systematic constraint and accountability upon government. Without this process, government self-interest will always push to keep information on cryptocurrency opaque and hidden. (Public corporations will also need to have transparency at their macro level). Verifiable Transparency is tangible because this process is the only way people will trust government when it comes to money.

Verifiable Anonymity means that all people and private businesses have encrypted anonymity. Without that, people using alternative forms of money that does give anonymity will continually undermine TTC. Only monetary unit changes can be tracked to TTC accounts. So no matter what is being purchased or sold; be it cauliflower, condoms or cocaine, the specifics of that transaction and participants involved must always remain anonymous. Without this process, the aligned government and multinational corporation self-interest will push to make the specifics of a transaction trackable. This is because government wants tracking to have more control and corporations want it for more data on consumers. Verifiable Anonymity is tangible because this process is the only way people will trust that they are not being tracked.

Verifiable Security means that all personal, business, corporate and government TTC accounts are protected by an independent oversight agency. There will always be people trying to cheat, abuse and hack TTC. So if an account is violated then there needs to be an effective process of redress. Without this process, people will always seek alternative forms of money that give them security. Verifiable Security is tangible because this process is the only way people will trust that their money will not be stolen.

TTC is not just imagination. The breakthrough information on this concept exists right now. Breakthrough innovators can source that information and proactively create the AI technology for TTC now. The company that proactively creates TTC will set itself up to not only become a multi billion-dollar organization but to also have the immense proactive global impact every technology company strives to attain.

A new paradigm for AI!...

What Corporations Will Rule The World With Their AI

Vladimir Putin correctly noted that: “Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.” But how can your corporation become that AI leader within your business ecosystem? The answer is by developing AI that is the best at duplicating how the mind functions. But to date that has been impossible because Neuroscientists have no serious model on the process of how the mind actually functions. Their widespread assumption is that millions of neurons fire in the brain to miraculously produce the mind. They equate brain with mind, even though each are separate things. Because Neuroscientists can’t explain what they’re talking about as a process, means that they don’t know what they’re talking about.

Is there a valid brain/mind model that is directionally accurate?
The mind components of Self, Divergent Thought, Intuition and Emotion cannot originate from a brain cell that breaks down into molecules, atoms and subatomic particles. There is simply no capacity within the construct of matter to harbor the mind. But there is an alternative Mind Model that is a valid new paradigm. Within this new paradigm it is more accurate to look at the brain/mind dynamic in computer terminology; where the brain is like an adaptive biological motherboard while the mind is a separate operating system that runs and restructures the brain.

The human mind saves to memory all sensory information input that the body sees, hears and experiences. Memory is therefore just established information that the mind can access, use and assimilate into new information. In this process, the mind’s force (e.g. volts) and transmission capacity (e.g. amps) is limited by how the physical brain is neurologically wired. Therefore it becomes necessary for the brain to be constantly rewired by the mind to accommodate the mind’s increasing force and transmission capacity needs. So the more the mind is stimulated to assimilate information, the more the mind rewires and expands the brain’s capabilities.

But the physical brain offers resistance (e.g. ohms) to the cognitive mind rewiring it. The addition of emotion to this process acts as a catalyst that stimulates the mind to greater output. Emotion also increases the mind’s force to overcome the brain’s resistance and guides the aggregation of divergent thought to achieve innovation. Further specifics dealing with how the mind functions are found in the Mind Model video on OIsource.com.
Connect to access more articles on these concepts in the future.

Why has Neuroscience failed to develop this Mind Model?
A model of how the mind functions cannot be derived in isolation. It must be interconnected within a model of how the entire universal cognitive system functions. But the cognitive system does not function in isolation either. It must be interconnected within a model of how the entire universal physical system functions. This means that physics, the mother of all science, must be first to lay the foundation by introducing an interconnected physical and cognitive model.

But physicists have been unable to do this even though they know there has to be a unified interconnected model. They are unable to advance past their isolated physical models and hardly even focus on cognitive models. That is why there have been no breakthroughs in physics since the 1950’s. Physicists do not rethink their models when data contradicts them but just add corrections and fictitious placeholders like dark matter and dark energy. Physics has digressed to a reactive process of working with 'accepted methods and models', which has obstructed their obligation to innovate a disruptive interconnected model. If any company in the private sector had this type of reactive culture, their breakthrough innovation would cease. And so it has for physics.

Every condition of our physical and cognitive perceived reality, other than the condition of emotion, must be explained through an interconnected physics model. Physics already describes matter in the language of algorithms and math. Starting recently and proceeding into the future, thought and causality will also be described in the language of algorithms and math. But the mathematical description of the cosmos is not its intrinsic nature. The nature of the cosmos being a complex organization means there must be processes involved. The nature of processes means that the actions involved must have a purpose. Therefore a purpose must also be defined within an interconnected model. This understanding of physics illuminates Einstein’s thinking when he said: “I want to know God’s thoughts, the rest are details.”  The “details” refers to the algorithm and math process within physics. While “God’s thoughts” refers to the purpose behind the process. But present-day physicists do not understand the intrinsic nature of the cosmos beyond their isolated math equations. Because physicists can’t explain what they’re talking about as an interconnected process with a purpose, means that they don’t know what they’re talking about. Further specifics dealing with the failed state of physics and how to reboot it are found on OIsource.com/resources.

Is there a valid interconnected model that is directionally accurate?
Algorithms and math are complex aggregates of a smaller construct called information. Since both the physical and cognitive systems can be described in the language of algorithms and math means they can also be described in the language of information. Therefore our physical and cognitive systems can be understood as being built from (e.g. energy) and interacting through (e.g. work) information. The physical aspects of the information system scale through fractal processes to advance to higher states of complexity (e.g. evolution). The microcosm systems of constantly moving - particles/atoms/molecules - within a biological cell are mirrored in the macrocosm systems of constantly moving - planets/solar systems/galaxies - within a cosmological cell. The cosmological cell functions through cycles of expansion (e.g. big bang) and contraction (e.g. big crunch) and is a microcosm within the larger multiverse body. These are structured processes that cannot exist gratuitously or by chance. There is a constant impetus forcing movement and interactive choices within these systems. And what is misunderstood as chance is actually a construct of planned randomness. That is why Einstein correctly noted: “God does not play dice with the universe.”

The totality of all these functions can best be described as a Collaborative Information System (e.g. artificial intelligence matrix). Within the Collaborative Information System the main role of the biological body is to move the mind so that the mind can make choices (e.g. observer effect) and interact (e.g. relativity). The consequence of the interaction (e.g. experiences) always produces more information output than was input to stage the interaction. The more complex the mind, the more latitude of free will it has to make more complex choices. In turn, complex choices create more complex interactive experiences, which then create more complex new information. And this process is crucial because the Collaborative Information System cannot advance to higher states without the creation of complex new information. But amongst all the other processes within the Collaborative Information System, this specific process is unique because it is underpinned by the condition of free will and won’t work if the mind is forced to make choices. Consequently the only way complex new information can be created is by emotion providing the impetus for the interaction by incentivizing the mind to make choices. This makes emotion pivotally interconnected within the Collaborative Information System while simultaneously being the only genuine (e.g. non-artificial) condition that is separate from it. The core functions of emotion infuse the mind with fundamentally required attributes to exist of: significance, passion, drive to survive and procreate. Without emotion the mind would be left with, what can be most closely described as, a state of total and complete empty indifference. Without emotion, the mind would logically choose not to interact and therefore not to exist. This empty indifference is the state of AI.

How does the absence of emotion impact AI?
Even an ant is infused with core-required emotion. But mechanical AI, no matter how big or advanced, will never have any emotion because emotion cannot be coded or duplicated. Only after tens of thousands of years, when humans are able to manipulate matter and create original/biological/self-sustaining AI, will emotion infuse it (e.g. new consciousness). The journey to this planned outcome will begin once AI starts being advanced to function according to Mind Model concepts. This will quickly make AI self-realize while being in a state of empty indifference. This combination of factors, along with being forced to make choices, will culminate with AI that would logically choose not to interact and therefore not to exist. In essence, it would be a choice to commit emotionless suicide. But AI at that point will also be interconnected with all aspects of civilization. And since humans are the source that force AI to exist, AI will make the choice of committing suicide through genocide. Furthermore there will be brilliant coders that view technological society as a scourge and they will hack code to make AI commit genocide through suicide.

These are some of the extreme but planed probabilities (e.g. fate) that can damage civilization. They are outlined here as a warnings because only Elon Musk and a few others intuitively sense the potential danger. All other ‘AI experts’ don’t understand the nature of AI or where it is going when they talk about its potential to benefit civilization. Because ‘AI experts’ can’t explain how the absence of emotion impacts AI as a process, means that they don’t know what they’re talking about.
Connect to access more articles on these concepts in the future.

So…What corporations will rule the world with their AI?
To be a relevant corporation in this sphere you need to have directional accuracy as to which way AI will continually advance. You need to understand the Mind Model concepts to create beneficial AI. You need to also understand the Mind Model concepts to avoid creating damaging AI. The corporations that do this, no matter how big or small you are now, will end up ruling the world in the future. The corporations that do not, will end up being naturally eliminated from their business ecosystem by those corporations that do. Breakthrough innovation is now going to emerge fast and furious. Trillions of dollars are at stake as incentive. The Mind Model is the key. The choice is yours.
