  • Nov 12 2012: A global 'cybernetic government' where humans with the help/assistance of correlation centers (which keeps track on how much resources we have and how much we can use to maintain abundance and sustainability) arrive at decisions instead of making them. A system that merely makes suggestions from a wide range of collected information, and the information it collects is always relevant, has been tested and tried, and it tells you how many ships are available, how many freight trains are available, how many doctors there are, and the best and latest treatment for physical disorders. It gives you information only, and when it doesn't have information it tells you that we have to do further studies on that, in order to arrive at a more appropriate decision. It does not make decisions, it arrives at them.

    A system where we, humans, would utilize the scientific method for social concern and become 'decentralized governmental bodies' that has a direct influence in an emergent environment/society. In other words, a government beyond politicians and decision-makers. A natural evolution in our digital age.
