Imagine the commons as a space of global-scale remixing, a living symphony, a thriving ecosystem of creativity and innovation, built on a substrate of proliferation and organic evolution.
Software Zero: A global-scale collaboration platform for swarm intelligence around a project, which retains the edits and contributions of every author throughout the history of the interweaving.

Heart of the Sun: An open source remixable science fiction movie: A living breathing Angel AI space station, weaving an intricate web around the Sun, in synergy with its human inhabitants. Human bodies with built in DNA-based organic computational abilities distributed throughout, every cell a processing unit.

People will rise to bridge this gap — people willing to embrace and experiment with evolutionary pathways in which the spiritual and technological meet.
Human Potential: I have been lucky to study with some extraordinary spiritual teachers, transformational schools, and perfection systems.
