    Top(OS) Part I
    Project: Polytopia
    We have laid down the preliminary aspects, facets, and ramifications of the Polytopia. We have an understanding of what the Polytopia represents (in an order in which I find them easy to form an emergent understanding, not by any means complete 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, 9,10,11,12,13)

    But how, indeed do we go about taking the next step in inhabiting it? Here we are presented with the continuing evolution of hyperspace - Web2.0, Web3.0, the Semantic Web, recommendation engines, new input interfaces, multi-sensory systems, and all of other tools that are beginning to arise in helping us navigate and visualize, connect, share, and communicate through hyperconnectivity. In my previous posts, I explore our habitation of the Polytopia, and what forms it can possibly take:

    Towards a Polytopia, Are we ready for a Polytopia?, (meta)senses, (meta)physics, and (meta)biology in Polytopia

    What's missing? Not just an interface - for the tools that we will use to interface with cyberspace will be ever-changing, open to myriad technologies in which we can define our own unique language of interface, including our communication with one another and the world around us (see "In my Language".)

      Our OS must:

    • enable the multi-dimensionality of the Polytopia, while at the same time being structured in such a way that disables negative aspects of centralized control and censorship.

    • enable and encourage meaningful methods of utilizing collective intelligence, collective sense-making & problem-solving, the authoring and sharing of knowledge narratives,

    • the ability to effectively manage our own identity (or identities)

    • enables and embodies the aspects of Friendship in Hyperconnectivity (see 1, 2, 3, 4) + MAP

    • enable us to utilize all past and future plug-ins - hardware or software.

    • allow the existence of an infinite multitude of Topos. (see A Topos, what is?)

    • must consolidate, aggregate, & hyperlink all current & future networks, services, systems, etc.

    • will accomplish all of the above THROUGH IT'S ARCHITECTURE.

    This OS overarches Windows & Mac & Linux, with their limited methods of input-output (tho Linux comparably less so). It overarches the desktop computer, the laptop, the handheld communication device, the web browser (in current and future forms) – it must be accessible by everyone and every device through all interaction interfaces.

    Besides it being an OS for our personal knowledge & social networks, it must also act as a networked system in itself. Right how, our brains are doing this. We use them to connect and navigate through all our different Topos in a fragmented, somewhat disconnected manner. It's clunky.

    The next step in human evolution will likely be techno-biological. As with the great series of posts from Robukku (1,2,3,4), we see that we are creature-stick hybrids – and have been for a long time.

    Our BioPerson and Infoperson inhabit these dimensions in varying levels. The crossover between the two is not clearly defined, and will get less so. It must be left open-ended to many different experiential modalities, while still providing us with the freedom to grow in whatever existence towards which we direct our own self-evolution.

    Can this system be model after life itself?

    (coming soon, part II: A Meta-Top(OS) Scenario)
