    Real time browser based controls for the developer and user are essential to Visual Y and the dream of revolutionizing how people interact with systemic knowledge. We imagine entirely fresh and elegant solutions to the interface and controls that drive a generative visualization engine. Instant creation, instant pattern, instant exchange, instant representation, instant saving, instant tagging and ontological organization, instant visual retrieval, instant editing and documentation. We imagine building a video game like world that is beautiful, organic, interactive, meaningful, navigable and universally helpful. Share with us the best work and thinking about controls.

    Lets take a moment to explain Y Worlds before we emerge from our chrysalis this Spring.

    Over the past two years, we have been developing a global cooperative scaffolding that we believe will eventually ignite and support a self sustainable world – becoming a model, a generative enterprise and a change agent operating beside the worlds we have inherited.

    Our scaffolding, always a work in progress, consists of our Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems model set, our semiotic language for the representation of knowledge, meaning and complexity, our first generation Visual Y generative engine, our daily.yworld.com posts culminating later this year in The Book of Y, and our sustainable enterprise gameplan that includes a consultancy, an alternative cooperative investment system, and high value initiatives focusing on such topics as food production, health and small scale entrepreneurship.

    The Y Worlds team is putting together a very large funding proposal that we will be introducing later this Spring to a carefully selected group of philanthropists, foundations and societally committed venture firms. We are always exploring people and organizations who may benefit from mutual coordination and support and exchange.

    We believe that in order for large scale change to occur there needs to be a major recalibration of our language, our objectives and principles and our understanding of systemic complexity plus there needs to be the invention of a compassionate collaborative mechanism to organize ourselves toward our potential.

    Sincerely,
    The collaborative of people at Y Worlds.

    Meaning is what shines. What sticks to our brain. the signal above the noise.

    It is the essence best captured through media, through semiotics, through image and sound, through story and experience, through signs and signifiers.

    There are heroic efforts. There are breakthroughs. There are actions that help others.
    There are transformational ideas. There are lovers. There are caregivers. There are life savers.
    There are creators. There are committed compassionate behaviors. There are private embraces. There is effort. There is creation. There is achievement.

    Toward NETS.

    Most of us live in the obscurity that we call regular life. At Y Worlds, we would like to encourage everyone to shine a light on anyone or any group that resonates with your ideal of legacY.

    Y Worlds issues a legacY to Bill Baird and to the lessons we learn through his life.

    He watched a woman die from a self inflicted attempt at abortion. He found a silent epidemic of women suffering and dying from abortion attempts. He begain a crusade that has occupied much of his life – to prevent unwanted pregnancies through birth control and education and to enable women to have access to safe and affordable abortion services.

    It was against the law as recently as 1972 for unmarried people to possess contraception and it was illegal to distribute contraceptives to unmarried people. I remember reading about his arrest in Boston in 1967 when he handed out a condom and a container of contraceptive foam to an unmarried female student. He was charged with a “Crime against Chastity” that carried a 5 year prison sentence. Bill went to jail for that crime and for numerous other instances involving speech about birth control and distribution of birth control to unmarried people. He was not supported by Planned Parenthood, by certain women’s rights groups, or by the ACLU at that time. It was then and is to this day a lonely, painful journey for Bill Baird. And it was then and is to this day a dedicated effort toward Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems.

    His appeal to the US Supreme Court and later separate court ruling resulted in decisions that ultimately affirmed the right of privacy, free speech rights, and the equal rights of married and unmarried people, to be free from unwarranted government intrusions into matters so fundamentally affecting a person as the decision to bear or beget a child.

    "You Don't Own Me" PSA from You Don't Own Me on Vimeo.

    He influenced the lives we lead today. The freedom of consenting adults to engage in sex was not recognized by all States in America until 2003. That 2003 decision relied on prior privacy decisions arising from the efforts of Bill Baird. The freedom to educate and to distribute birth control and disease control resources is directly the result of the efforts of Bill Baird. The freedom to obtain a safe and affordable abortion was championed by Bill Baird.

    Ideology, not NETS, dictated control and intrusions into our lives that had no intent other than to maintain the ideology. That same ideology remains today and continues to threaten the actions of consenting adults; to threaten the reproductive rights of women; and to threaten access to abortion resources, consulting resources, child development resources and to every effort possible that avoids unwanted pregnancies – enabling the situations resulting in abortions to continue their voluntary decline.

    We recognize Bill Baird for his commitment to the entire spectrum of NETS against a headwind of sacrifice that continues to this day.

    Thank you Bill.

    There is only black and white when we define them,
    point to them, and say, “that’s black and white.”

    We have constructed universal grids of time and space, of words with universal definitions and legal definitions, where black is black and white is white.

    The store is on a specific corner. It sells turnips. It is open everyday from 6am to midnight.
    Our time and space grids are made for black and white. We also have sensory grids and sensory equipment to record an experience that works in black and white only with certainty.
    I saw the bird fly. You saw the bird fly. We saw the same bird fly by. It was a black and white bird.

    But most of the universe does not exist within carefully defined grids.

    Should I go to store A or store B?
    When should I go to the store?
    What route should I take?
    Will I encounter someone on the way?
    What will I decide to buy when I arrive at the store?
    Should I buy the turnips?
    Are turnips sprayed with pesticides?
    What is the benefit of eating a turnip?
    Where will I go from there………………?

    Hundreds of thoughts. No black and white.
    When humans interact or introspect, there is no black and white.
    When life and matter and energy do their thing, there is no black and white certainty.

    The English language offers us a family of words to define, describe and communicate the construct we call Truth.

    Some of the words English speakers use the most are:

    Truthful- True
    Accurate
    Honesty
    Facts
    Proof

    Not Truthful- False
    Inaccurate
    Lies
    Fiction
    Speculation

    At Y Worlds, we reframe the constructs pertaining to truth and falsity.
    First, we begin with the idea that the words listed above are human centric. Outside of human centric is a construct we call “What Is” – Matter:Energy.

    We use the Y Person model and the comprehensive Y Worlds model to consider anything human centric.

    Suppose a tree falls in the forest.

    If no human detects this event, it becomes “what is” until a human enters the picture.


    Corporal
    If our person sees the tree fall, the event is processed and enters the corporal being.

    Subconscious
    It becomes a signal if recognized subconsciously. It remains noise if not recognized subconsciously.

    Conscious
    It becomes a point of information if it is processed consciously. It becomes knowledge if it is stored or connected for future use.




    What happens next makes this interesting.

    Newton’s First Law of Motion: Every object continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a straight line, unless compelled to change that state by external forces acted upon it.

    We are all objects of a sort.
    In groups, we are the most powerful creatures on earth.
    Alone, we are one among the creatures of the earth.
    Together, with access to knowledge and resources, we can move mountains of opportunity.
    Alone, and at rest, we tend to stay at rest.
    As families and tribes, we move toward common goals.
    Alone and in motion, we tend to keep in the same motion along a familiar path.
    As civilizations, we dance down roads not taken to the beat of unfamiliar sounds.

    Relationships are external forces.
    Our own conscious is an external force. It operates outside of our inheritance and experience.
    We are the forces that create motion, direct motion, and accelerate motion.

    At Y Worlds, we are building a world. A compassionate, sustainable, scalable world.
    We are, after all, a Cooperative.
    With an evolving universally adaptive systemic language.
    With a peer to peer based theme of shared wealth and resources.
    With a rebuilt knowledge engine powered by a mediated systemic wiki
