We need better tools for cooperation - not just better tools for our existing ways of communicating.
Thanks.Yes, I agree. You provide some good examples. It may be unreachable to obtain a "complete" understanding of what your meaning of "x" is, but I might get closer and closer to it as I invest more time learning about you, your experiences, etc. But that requires an investment of time and other resources on both parties. But maybe if there could be some Facebook-like data store of your experiences and associations of those experiences with your words...software could analyze those data and propose an improved mapping of it against my experiences and my associated words. Perhaps, the words could eventually be eliminated and the end points of the mappings would be some new form of tokened symbols that would have greater precision of meaning to each individual than words would.

Thanks, but I'm not proposing mind reading at all. I think it's possible for people to have clear thoughts without having the ability to communicate their thoughts as effectively as they desire through existing mediums (words, visuals, etc.). Key point being "their desire". so control over revealing those thoughts should remain with them. Some kind of hardware would be required but not necessarily new, and not any kind that would jack in to your stream of consciousness or anything like that. And I agree that the mind is a good place to "draft"..so perhaps the software could even help a person "communicate" to him/herself better.

What do you think is the biggest problem facing the world and what do you suggest could be done to fix it?
Our inability to cooperate with each other in situations when we desire actual cooperation, largely resulting from our existing suboptimal means of communication, including the systems and platforms we use for transmitting thoughts and ideas to each other, such a debates, advertising, pretty much any medium. People's abilities to communicate with each other are expected to improve with education, but I don't think education is enough. We need some very smart people to DESIGN a better verbal language, similar to how computer scientists design better software languages. Sure, our verbal languages change through slow evolution, but how about a fresh start?
