You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” - R. Buckminster Fuller

Communities in WikiWorld embrace some of the following complementary principles as a basis for collaboration. No one is expected to buy into all of the principles. If you resonate with even one of the principles then WikiWorld is for you.

For our security and freedom, or where we share common principles or have common needs we can benefit from collaboration and not be subject to the tyranny of the majority. The collective intelligence capitalizes on our differences rather than our sameness.
We support each other in doing our own thing, its groovy and maximizes our collective potential.

Below are some of the principles, held by some, potentially forming a bases for collaboration that realizes that potential.

- The Relative nature of Truth

Classical logic is based on the premise that a proposition is true or false, and there is no third alternative. Godel showed such logic is incomplete more than 80 years ago yet humanity still basks in the illusion that it still holds. The natural nature of truth is the yin yang synthesis of a thesis and antithesis. Truth generally has a quantum like nature as it is in a superposition of states both true and false from different perspectives. Determination is by delayed choice and cannot be predicted with certainty except in the case where we have complete information about the system. Systems tend to be complex and we rarely can consider complete information.

Complex systems have many possible outcomes where the law of equal probability tends to apply making almost any outcome almost equally as likely. It is very often the case that what we consider the most probable outcome has less than a .5 probability and what happens in a system turns out to be one of the less probable alternatives. Even what we consider to be scientific truth changes every day. We are groomed believe there is certainty when there is as little as 11% statistical significance, and sometimes statistical 3% significance is used to sway the public basing our decisions on what are unlikely outcomes and suppressing the alternatives that may turn out to be correct.

Faced with our inevitable illusions we accept that our beliefs are tentative, and welcome opposing views, which we may dispute enthusiastically for the purpose of discovering a more complete truth, and not to impose our beliefs on others. We share the same Blakean "inner genius" that never lies and there is some truth in every opinion. Truth is not a democracy. We adopt the emerging unbiased trustworthy method of science in a Jayenean manner employing maximum relative entropy.

Due to the nature of greater truth we assert the right of freedom of belief and expression within our trusted communities and affirmatively support that right of others such that greater truth might emerge, none of us are dominated by the tyranny of the majority and a collective intelligence might emerge in a manner as is exhibited by Nature Herself in a system where the user controls the system rather than the system controlling the user by other than the natural consequences of their actions and evidenced contradiction of their beliefs.

- Freedom of Trust

Who can you trust? Who can you trust to tell you who or what you can trust? How far do you trust government? Freedom of trust implies distributing the choice of trust down to the individual. Trusted networks are built from the bottom up, two by two, in a maximally decentralized manner.

- Voluntary Collaboration

Voluntary collaboration can reduce redundancy such that two might be as easily self reliant at one. Small groups with common interests can exhibit a collective intelligence making them more effective. Involuntary collaboration is slavery. Our collaboration ought not be subject to the tyranny of the majority. The social contract of our trust networks ought include that we will not try to control one another and make it simple to collaborate voluntarily without stepping on each others toes. We all ought not be bound to a singular authority.

- Mutual Respect in the information age

The social contract of our trust networks ought include that we respect each others ownership of our identity, intellectual property and work product. Standing united in the protection of our ownership and right to privacy insures it will not be lost.

- Affirmative Reciprocal Trust

Promoting a trust network requires granting slightly more trust than is granted you unless a breach dissolves that trust.

- Self Reliance in the information age

A goal of WikiWorld is to help each other become self reliant and realize a world where we are unconstrained in realizing self reliant communities of trust. To freely be self reliant we must be free free to trust and collaborate or not to meet our needs. We ought be free to chose, for example, what software and networks are safe with the advice of those we trust.

- Survival in the event of cyber war

Mesh networking and extreme self reliance are needed to provide continuity in the event that public infrastructure is compromised. The evidence is that our public infrastructure is vulnerable. Our dependance on information systems and communications technology is growing exponentially. Today anyone can be a phone company or a bank. Everyone can be their own identity provider. By building grassroots networks used in conjunction with public infrastructure we insure ourselves against failure of the public infrastructure while reaping its benefits when it is available.

- Social Consciousness in the information age

With the conflict of privacy verses transparency and the globally public nature of the internet we need greater awareness of what should be shared and what should be private. We hope to choose to expose only the information that is most beneficial to ourselves, the communities that trust us, humanity and our environment. We seek to socially engineer our interactions with the world in a manner that maximizes the realization of human potential collaborating with a collective intelligence rather than groupthink.

- Implementation of intelligent solutions to the issues facing humanity

The universe, biological systems, mind, intelligent systems and collective intelligence may be considered information systems in so far as they may be understood formally.

WikiWorld is a successive approximation of an optimal toolset for promoting survival and growth in information ecologies of any kind founded on the physics of information.
