Great initiative, Joao. Too bad you have internet issues, but I hope your problems will pass, soon. If you want me to copy specific content into the wiki just write it in [wiki]“Wiki Content”[/wiki] tags. I will find a fitting page to put it in, if you don’t specify one on your own.
Sure, there’s a clear need to do that. And it will have synergy effects with some of the other projects I’m working on at the moment. By the way: I have thought about this for a while, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it would most probable be better to call “system X” system D instead, in the sense of:
I think you are doing a really good job with that. I will be glad if you could bring that into a really canonical form with my support.
I feel like I should focus more on the hell-creepers, while you seem to have more ideas about the cloud-lords. Let’s see what we will come up with
Yes, this is crucial for all the timelines. Maybe we should actually focus on that first before going into politics in too much detail. Of course, politics feeds back into technological development, but technology has the leading hand and seems to be a stronger determinant.
Well, “system X” does indeed sound more stylish, but it was a project name out of a lack of knowledge what the next system is really characterized by. Now, we have a deeper understanding and can say more specifically how system D should look like (decentralized, with digital abundance, and basic incomes). “System X” is rather an expression of something that is unknown, and undetermined. Instead, system D is something that is a rather logical intermediate state between system C and system V.
Of course, you could still opt to call “my” system D “System X” in the context of Fractal Cosmos, but I think that might be more confusing that it’s worth it.
But we don’t really need to decide that right now. In the meanwhile, we can simply use system X and system D synonymously.
Ok, today I’ve actually written FFW articles on systems N, A, C, D, and V. This is the current state of my big picture view of civilizational development. Please feel free to ask questions and provide feedback. There are certainly tons of things I need to explain in more detail about system D and system V.
The issue of Fractal Cosmos being similar to Orion’s Arm has been discussed several times already, basically from the start of the project:
I wasn’t aware of Future Wikia, though. It seems to be an interesting resource. Thanks for mentioning it. Maybe some collaboration with them might provide some opportunity to reinvigorate Fractal Cosmos?
