Richard M. Stallman, made the golden rule, mutual love, into law

The golden rule:

  • Treat and respect others as yourself❣

Is the one principle which has been discussed and encouraged since thousands of years and lately also proven by computer simulations over and over, to be the key to a collaborative peaceful progressive society. However, this simple rule, only works for honest actors, as when also dishonest actors are present, it encourages corruption and standstill. Ideally we wouldn’t have any dishonest actors, but as long as we have them, there is a simple solution.

Richard M. Stallman (RMS), magna cum laude in physics from Harvard, later programmer at MIT AI Lab. In 1986, patched the golden rule, to assure by law, mutuality also for dishonest actors, after he instigated the Free Software movement and founded Free Software Foundation and created the most powerful patch of a computational system ever made, that is the General Public License.

The General Public License is mutual love, that is, one being can not limit or restrict another beings’ freedom, one being has to treat another being in a similar way as themselves. The General Public License protects freedom for software, documents and designs and protects the following freedoms for software:

  • Freedom 0: The freedom to run the program for any purpose.
  • Freedom 1: The freedom to study how the program works, and change it to make it do what you wish.
  • Freedom 2: The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor.
  • Freedom 3: The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements (and modified versions in general) to the public, so that the whole community benefits.

For a thinking honest being who understands the simple concept of mutual aid and mutual freedom, these rules should not be necessary, as anyone would understand them. Unfortunately society is still full of dishonest actors that can steal your freedom, enslave you and make you dependent upon them.
These freedoms give rise to an evolution, striving towards perfection and abundance, but unfortunately society is mostly put at a standstill, not much has happened since the 70-ies apart from segregation having accelerated.
In Sweden I remember that we once were promised that machines would do all the boring work so we humans could do the fun, self developing and challenging part, but in today’s standstill it’s even a big risk to be over qualified, which implies you do a bad job as you are bored.   There is no reason to ever be over qualified.  Here is one of many articles about people being bored at their work, in this case google employees who complain they are over qualified.

Over qualification is one of many symptoms of artificial scarcity, where artificial scarcity can be seen as a syndrome composed of at least:
patents, copyright, Non-Free proprietary software, Non-Free proprietary technology, Non-Free secret protocols, trade secrets, Non-Free proprietary knowledge, Non-Free proprietary information and similar types of totally artificial constraints.

Mutual freedom and fairness is an important key to progress as mutual freedom is a fundamental requirement for evolutionary development. The CopyLeft rule implemented by the General Public License gives rise to such an evolutionary process within software.
This article describes the development of operating systems for the 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world during 20 years. The article is from July 2013, it was 95.2% GNU/Linux then.
Edit: new check says that from Nov 2017, there is 100% Linux 500/500.

As you can see the convergence follows a logistic function which is a typical convergence rate for an evolutionary algorithm.

However, regarding personal computing we still have a lot of involuntary ballast due do taxation from Microsoft and other proprietary software vendors, even though Mark Shuttleworth recently marked bug #1 in Ubuntu “Microsoft has too large market shares” as fixed. The reason for success was to a large extent due to the explosive development of smartphone OS where many different versions of Linux are dominating but Microsoft still has a tremendous grip on laptops and tablets. In many countries, like Sweden, freedom is not respected, it is almost impossible to buy a laptop or a tablet without a Microsoft system, which adds around 800SEK (around 100USD) to the price, irrespectively whether you will ever use the evil Windows system or not. There is also quite a lot of corruption hidden, as e.g. here in Sweden, each taxpayer pays around 300$ in average/year in unnecessary license fees for proprietary (evil locked in and enslaving) software in governmental use. Unnecessary as there exists free open source alternatives that both respect your freedom as well as encourage collaboration and local development.

The golden rule:

  • Treat and respect others as yourself❣

is based upon one essential condition though, that is, you need to love, respect and care for yourself, therefore my improved version is:

  • Treat and respect others at least as good as yourself❣

richard-stallman_1PS. now some may see a contradiction here, as I included copyright in artificial scarcity, as CopyLeft is built upon copyright, but there is no contradiction. Over time when the positive effects of the CopyLeft principle has abolished artificial scarcity, then there is no longer a need for copyright either.
Today people have become blinded, and often see nothing strange with proprietary designs and knowledge, but in the future, I foresee that you will be treated as a criminal and a charlatan if you would try to sell a proprietary design, they will consider you as crazy.

Is This New World an Utopia?

No, by definition utopia is not something you can reach.

This was the reason why I got the proposal to use nonutopia
when definining the domains nonutopia.org , nonutopia.net and nonutopia.com in 2002.

That is, the Utiopia we are aiming for is a Non Utopia, as we will be able to reach it❣

The only usage so far for these domains have been a few statements given about the future in 2004, and our patent on open innovation, which will be one of the keys to the propespering future.

Another usage has been to make a backup of President Obama’s promises, just after the election 2008, not yet fulfilled… which are on nonutopia.net, and it will stay so as we won’t use .net domains either apart from net administrations, like name servers.

We will use the domain wish-it.com to start with as in our mascot, as well as wish-it.org as generic domains but later we also promote local local top level domains due to specific local needs, e.g. wish-it.se, wish-it.us, wish-it.eu, wish-it.asia, etc. Over time we aim for top level domain free adressing as well as a more robust routing protocol than is currently implemented in the TCP/IP protocol.

Post-Apocalyptic Thoughts❣

So, you are still asleep… ;)

The Apocalypse obviously did not happen in the way many may have expected, many will claim that it didn’t happen at all, but… if you really start looking around, if you look upon the world with new eyes, maybe you will notice that something has happened, something wonderful, something that will soon make this world a better place.

There are two kinds of people; those who see the negative trends in the society, how its all become worse and worse and how it will all come to an end; then those who doesn’t see the negative trends but the positive trends and see how great things will become; then its me, and those thinking and observing in a similar way as I do. For my own I see the negative trends, but I see them as necessary to give strength to the positive trends, to make the crisis stand out more, to increase awareness, to encourage people to start acting. I see it all as an evolutionary process, where the good always win.

(yes I got an 85% score as optimist in a test a few years ago… :-)

Best wishes about a wonderful future♡♡♡

The end❢ of the dot.com world?

(finally we all wake up❣ …)

It is clear that businesses which currently take place at many places over the world are not always for the best of the humanity and its development. The so called “profit thinking” which is short sighted and non productive, as its main goal is to make “profit” is a type of business which need to disappear or change its focus.

We need to promote the good forces in the society, we need to encouragre those who create and produce due to passion and love, those who care about what they produce and who care about the consumers. We need to encourage those who use ecological/biological producation simply because this is a more robust and well tested technology. For my own I do not oppose e.g. GMO in principle, but GMO is most often associated with harmful, monopolising, lock-in business models, where huge companies (like Monsanto) are trying to monopolise the market with patents and other types of lock ins. For a healthy development we need to promote what we know is healthy, and organic production clearly is.

 

UFO Disclosure❣

I haven’t seen anything yet that I’m sure about being an “UFO”, well I have seen UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) but I can not tell that they were what people often mean by UFO that is merely ETFO (Extra Terrestrial Flying Object). Those UFOs I have seen, which I have suceeded to take some photos of, but of quite low quality, hardly interesting for anyone can certainly be explained in other ways.

In one case I noticed that a few objects, looking like planets were moving versus the background stars. However, in the photos I took, I see that it was actually the opposite, these objects I had seen wasn’t moving at all, it was all the stars in the background which were moving, that is, these objects were stationary, and compensated for the turn of the Earth. Now, someone may claim those are just geostationary satelites, but geostationary satellites (like all GPS satellites) actually move as well, apart from one specific kind placed exactly over the equator.

However, having read about and listened to many people who have seen or experienced things related to seemingly extra terrestrial activity, it would be wonderful to see all such reports to be jointly analyzed for common denominators. Often UFO reports are handled the completely opposite way… that is, people try with all kinds of means to explain observed phenomenon with “natural” explanations. This is not a very scientific way to deal with such data…

Take a specific observation, it may have a 30% chance being a natural phenomenon. Does this mean that is is a natural phenomenon? No! It means that it has a 30% chance of being a natural phenomenon and a 70% chance of being a supernatural phenomenon.

This is a mistake I see over and over, everywhere. It’s only by meta analysis (using e.g. different data mining techniques) it is possible to a make a better judgement of the observation, otherwise it becomes non productive pseudo science.

Revelation 24❣

An Advent Calender doesn’t need to be monotonic. I now intend to reveal what will be behind the 24th of Dec: World Peace❣

The planet will become a friendly civilized planet, this is also extremly easy to implement,  it’s just to stop fighting, it’s completely free, nothing to argue about.

Then regarding the Singularity and the technological evolution that will soon take off for real, as I described in my contribution from the 17th of Nov, resulting in a friendly civilized planet, full of Love with humans that can think and stand on their own, no longer being victims of deceivers.

I’ll describe this in detail soon, first by filling in more than titles in the previous contributions during December, but we will also soon open  our portal, that will take you to the future. When I started planning this project, it started with a school paper in 1987, TankeNyckeln, (Mind Lever, Thinking Spanner, Ajatus Avain, or Ajatus Jokuavain) , this school paper described the society’s technical and social evolution from 1987 to 2037, but in two steps. The first step was to 2012, where the first 25 years have been tremendously exact, despite all attempts to destroy the development from many directions, like trying to control internet, information and knowledge, secret protocols, patents in absurdum and dystopic laws like DMCA.

However, against a super exponential development, as earlier described, nothing can no longer hold it back, the good forces are too strong, the development process during 25 years from now to 2037, will be so mind boggling, so beautiful, so dizzying, so flourishing, that when you finally arrive to the future, it will be like waking up from a dream, where the current past was just like a night mare, a really bad one, when the present dystopia will be quickly dissolved and forgotten, like any bad dream usually do. But…, your awakening will be fantastic❣

I’ll soon provide you the whole report in English and a few other languages, but I’ll present the end visions here, which start at page 61 in the Swedish scanned version I linked to above.


4.1 Introduction
We are “writing” anno 2037. It has passed one century since Konrad Zuse constructed the first electromechanical digital calculator whose fundamentally simple principle made the computer, the most wonderful invention by mankind, possible.

Probably the society would have existed still even without computers, but no-one is longer sure about this.

During the previous century the humanity was suffering from a lot of problems that today only exists in the historic data bases.

Here are mentioned such irregularities as starvation, drug abuse, apartheid, environmental pollution and destruction, bureaucracy, educational problems, unemployment and the ubiquitous threat that a leader from one of that era’s “countries” would choose to solve a conflict with non peaceful means. Word like “VIOLENCE” and “WAR” were common at this time.

Today most elderly people have usually repressed that these problems have ever existed. There are many people of the young generation that during their primary education refuse to believe that we have ever behaved like that. However, it often happens that some of the younger persuade someone with associations left from this time to narrate about that era’s horror and foolishness.

The technical and psychosocial development has only during the last 50 years changed the society by enhancing the good properties of mankind to such great an extent that as late as 1970-1990 it was hardly possible for anyone to imagine what will come. During this epoch there were even people that had lost their beliefs in both technology and humanity.

4.2 Technical development
Computer technology first developed quite slowly and didn’t became wide spread. Due to the invention of the “micro processor” 1971 a lot of new toys were designed the next 20 years under the name “computers”. However, most of these designs were suffering from so many defects and imperfections that they were not worth to be denoted “computer”. It was not these that should make the human culture move forward. In the late 80-ies there were many, among others a young engineer in the place denoted “Sweden” that noticed that the development and the society were heading into a cul-de-sac a deadlock, which it could take very long time for the society to get out from, if ever.

He therefore designed the “TankeNyckeln” (Mind Lever, Thinking Key, Thinking Spanner).
This rather simple tool combined what was this era’s best technology regarding speed, generality, portability, input and presentation technology with what all other similar computers missed: communcation!

The TankeNyckeln became a success, it was already from the beginning so simple and general, that it during long time couldn’t be improved in many other ways than becoming faster, more energy efficient and more cost efficient.

From the early beginning it had a suitable size to be easy to work with by holding it in one hand. After some time when presentation technology improved it could also be worn around the neck with the “display chips” in a kind of glasses.

Since long one had within the area of micro biology mastered the technology to achieve synaptic contact between electronic and optic circuits with nerve cells. The foundations for this was established in 1987 when some researchers succeeded to grow nerves together with silicon cells. Thanks to this, and due to the fact that the circuits now started to become so energy efficient that they could get their power supply directly from the human body, many use to implant their TankeNyckel under the skin. To “see” has during later years become a word with very various meanings.

These Thinking Spanners started already from 1998 to be delivered as development assistents to the developmental areas of the planet. 2012 also every humans right to CPU power and communcation was added to United Nation’s declaration of human rights.

Most homes today have optical communication channels around 10 Gigabit/s, there is also a stationary computer to distribute this information locally. In those day’s terms these local computers would have a computational efficiency of around 10-100 TIPS (Tera Instructions per second).

The old day’s computer screens and loud speakers are nowadays mostly seen on muséeums and with nostalgic collectors. Picture and sound can now be delivered with an earlier completely unsurpassed brilliance and lack of distorsion, by skipping the earlier analogue part of the transmission. The experience is now conveyed to the brain without going through eye receptors and hearing nerves. It may be superfluous to mention but concepts as “blindness” and deafness are no longer used.

An interesting detail about the fixed installed computational power is that every human being at any moment is guaranteed around 1/(8*10^9) of this power, thanks to TOS (Terrestrial Operative System), but can also whenever suitable, achieve up to 50% of this computer power for computer simulations with high demands.

4.3 Psychosocial development
Most people have today no clear interpretation of the difference between work and spare time. Most of the people today would with old terms be seen as Jack-of-all-trades skilled in many arts.

Today no one suffer from ignorance, any one who doesn’t find what they are looking for in some context in their own memory, are, most often unconsciously, looking up this in their TankeNyckel’s data base of all human knowledge, which is a growing all the time, as so large part of the humanity is now aiming their time to some kind of resarch project.

All people in the world can now socialize without need to care about what language they are using. Most people master some of the accepted global languages which have evolved. The language doesn’t matter much apart from in very emotional situations. Two people who are discussing with each other through each one’s TankeNyckel usually don’t notice that the speech is simultaneously interpreted and translated. Each person can hear an almost perfect synthesis of the other person’s voice, modulated with the mood or spirit the other person feel at that moment.

4.4 Transport
Old time cars are nowadays not used for transport, they are mostly considered as curiosities by collectors. When somebody decides to travel somewhere it takes between one half to five minutes before the vehicle show up after the desired trip has been “thought” or decided.

PersonConts, these small capsules that exist in a lot of different sizes for e.g. 1-8 persons, have an enormous comfort and allow people to move between different places on Earth tremendously fast.

The transportation system works like an energy pendulum. When travelling for instance over the Atlantic Sea, the capsule is accelerated half way electromagnetically in a vacuum tunnel, the other half of the time it is decelerating and works as a generator (implying that the actual energy used is close to zero).

Flying and boat traffic exists but is no longer used as transportation within the atmosphere. For heavier transports are often airships used. To communicate between the space stations and the research bases on the Moon are also a form of the energy pendulum used, but then with somewhat stronger capsules. From some of the highest mountains on Earth, these tunnels are leading out into space.

4.5 Produktion
The total production machinery of Earth now consists of an almost maintenance free machinery, which is so flexible that any stockrooms are no longer needed.

Anyone who needs a specific part or product be manufactured, just formulates their need through their TankeNyckel whereupon the part will be produced in the most suitable manufacturing facility concerning degree of difficulty, distance and how quick it need to be ready. If some part needed is not possible to manufacture with the current manufacturing resources an analysis is made which manufacturing facility is most suitable to upgrade for production of the required part or product.

4.6 Computer Science development
Here is an approximate summary of the development within programming methodology during the last 50 years, presented as “generations”.

3rd: Generic languages with high degree of freedom, like LISP, SETL etc.

4th: Logical and data base languages like Prolog, Mapper, OPS5 etc. Expert aids as e.g. Macsyma.

5th: In principal high performance logical languages with high capabilities for parallelism, easy to use user interfaces and large content of so called AI.

6th: The logical languages have now developed to treat also uncertain facts, rules and associations. A property like intuition can be formulated.

7th: Distributed operative systems and architectures for optimal parallel processing. Concepts like TOS (Terrestrial Operative System) and TVM (Terrestrial Virtual Memory) are being defined.

8th: Problem formulations and hypothesis testing can now be made by directly relating facts, hypotheses and theories within TVM.

9th: The delicate improvements in the communication between man and TOS (Terrestrial Operating System) has implied that you can now work at an abstraction level which approaches the border of human fantasy. A problem or a solution that earlier has been almost impossible to reason about abstractly, can now be formulated through small hints by “thinking” as close to the problem as you can. The final formalization of the problem is obtained by automatic or “manual” correlation between all possible and many impossible formalizations until sufficient significance has been reached.

4.7 Conclusion
The engineer who made the first TankeNyckel is now working with age related research, his comment: “When we have come this far during the last 100 years, who do then want to miss the next 1000 years.


I denoted today’s contribution a revelation, but it was in fact a revelation from more than one perspective, before I finished this report by writing this visionary part above I had one evening during March 1987 seen a 2×2 m projection on an inner wall at home during around 3 minutes, under heavy convulsions and cold sweat. I did not understood what I had seen, it looked like a portal, and a fantastic city, but it was just recently I recognized it, it was the front page of Keith Curtis book After the Software Wars, which was released a couple of years ago. I asked Keith who had made the wonderful picture, and he said Nils Seifert, this picture, titled Metropolis 2208, also made perfect sense, as Metropolis also was the name of the fantastic movie Metropolis, by Fritz Lang, from 1927, which exactly describes the dystopic state of the world today, where advanced technology is used to control and supervise people, instead of helping people making progress.

Front page to Keith Curtis' book After The Software Wars

Front page to Keith Curtis’ book After The Software Wars


It was also this which later inspired me to start my PhD program, and after many years as a researcher and a research consultant I realized how to implement this 9th generation programming language , and the implementation of this is what I’m working on now, soon to be released as a portal, a portal to take humanity to the future, to a real civilized state, in peace and progress.

PS. the only personal computer so far, which has been released and quickly withdrawn…, which would correspond to the concept of TankeNyckeln is Apple’s Newton from 1992, but of some reason Steve Jobs killed it, despite Apple is probably sitting on the largest resource on the planet for user independent hand writing…
