  1. Mr. Diamimandis, I have deep regrad for your vision, wide heartedness, seriousness as to positive change of civilization and mankind. I share your every dimension of activity. And in order to support you in your endeavor I am offering a little academic present to you so that involve people to do research in this field. I am being aretired university professort material to this research in full this is my hummble peep into your project. As time is runnig fast. we have to see this done at the earliest. You are the man who can do this most effectively. SoPolicy automation and its dimensions

    Policy automation is the demand of our time. This is due to the exponential technological innovation that is taking place today and the automation thereof. What signifies at the moment is to determine what would be its basic foundation.

    The central principle of the essence and perspective of policy automation will be to innovate way outs to sweep off the authority content that has pervaded in its context traditionally. Also there is an issue of impersonalizing its operational mechanism keeping alive the human touch that no policy affair can bypass.

    The ray that peeps to focus light on this is that policy spring must be in the academia so that it can have both the human touch and the human knowledge content and knowledge transformation that can match with update needs with perspective change over time. This will also ensure human supervision over policy need, policy formulation and policy application. This will match exactly with individual liberty, human superiority and the need to set aside involvement of politics and politicians.

    Academic research must be associated with a research project continuum that can address every new perspective and their minute dimensions. New frontiers of knowledge inclusion will be needed to be made compulsory. For, without this catastrophic counterproductive events may follow. As the automation rate is increasingly becoming more and more exponential this demands special attention.

  2. Until recently, every science and technology talk explained that we were held down by primitive ideas like "the Earth is at the Center of the Universe", (as anyone who has eyes can see, but..), the planets revolve around the Sun,(not really, it's a Center of Gravity based optical illusion), and so on, all because judgements by appearance passed from one generation to the next according to personal relevance and management of perceptions.

    On topic, everyone actually "makes their future" possible from a imagined map of real experience and what they believe, it's fundamentally true.

    The Actuality of QM-TIMESPACE Singularity Conception, mathematically at the Central Limit Eternity-now Superspin Superposition-point Singularity positioning of Time Duration Timing is the basis of conscience awareness at e-Pi-i interference positioning. (The single connection in Principle of zero-infinity difference distribution)

    Translate the currently adopted "primitive materialist ignorance" value system, caused by confusing the durability of physicality of substance.., when-how all is vibration/quantization.., superimposed AM-FM communication mechanism modes that are real Math-Phys-Chem and Geometry, into rational and reasonable statements of Timing-spacing dynamical holographic image projection. Imagination matches the future-projection of past-drawing, positioning systems here-now forever, with remembered states.

    Feynman said, "the easiest person to fool is yourself", in conjunction with all the most interesting things of the then "mysterious" Quantum Mechanics and computational methods.., which is why, if, all this time, we are all mystified by what is easily observable, it's already the case of "fooled", generally, effortlessly.

    "The most valuable real estate" in the Universe is knowing who you/we are in the context of Actuality here-now-forever, ..cause-effect temporal existence, in terms of Singularity. (A very good name for a University!)

    Definitely fun to imagine.
