Castpoints: integrating all markets
First The Martix, then Limitless, then Lucy. Now...
Bringing the acceleration of human potential from books & big screen experiences, to a fun, supportive, and practical way of life.
Exponential change is too fast to be "managed". "Problems" take too long to identify. Systems need to be integrated, concise, self healing, and self configuring.
By integrating all markets, Castpoints effectively allocates all resources while reducing risk for individuals and groups. Foci change from control, to aligning with reality. Executive summary
Fragmented markets make: fraud, inability to compare end-to-end option cost, and ineffective policies that can't hope to match the flood of change.
Using fragmented market models for allocating resources. Examples:
- Organizing groups of people: voting.
- Advertisitng: conversion rates typically < a few percent.
- Medicine: Took 20 years to deploy the knowledge that gastritis and peptic ulcers are usually due to a bacteria, not stress.
- Internet of Things is, still, wildly insecure (2014).
Many efforts target a "pain POINT", yet never address context. That:
- Creates fragmentation. Everyone knows insurance is ripe for change, but no one has done it because current ideas are not nearly was well (incestuously) INTEGRATED compared to exsisting insurance.
- Is backward looking: constantly putting out fires. ("Running away from.")
- Ignores "moving toward" creativity. (Which is often fine since creation requires a period of rest.)
The Zen sweet spot: be present with EMERGENCE which naturally puts out fires while moving toward creativity.
- The more simple and stricly mecahnical a system is, the more it's a normal distribution. Cause and effect are closely linked.
- Complex adaptive systems like weather, societies, and stock markets, have fat tail distributions (black swans, serendipity, emergence). Cause and effect are often only understandable in hindsight, if ever. That's why people get so confused.
Which OPERATING SYSTEM do you want to use, one created by people, and their reactionary projections, that rarely lasts more than 50 years, or one that nature has been using since time began?
Castpoints is a web based framework that stewards anything to maximize innate value in personal and group areas of interest and expertise. Logistics are automatically managed so effectively, they fade into the background. That includes effectively connecting & managing any number, any grouping, and any scale of any resource (people, work, goods, content, locations). Like silk, these relationships integrate structure and flexibility, so that participants create both practical and inspired impact.
"CATEGORY DESIGN is a principle that every successful entrepreneur has intuitively embraced." Content is often ephemeral. Context is often TIMELESS. The best poscasts, books, movies, etc., are timeless because they prioritize context over content. They make a (new) valuable context / system / pattern, and it's content, accessible. Why design 1 category, when you can design 1 system that proactively designs ANY and ALL categories? How? Nature proactively designs and fills all contexts. Just copy that! :-)
Technology typically speeds things up, while organization generally makes things more effective. Castpoints easily organizes and monetizes anything and everything from outliers to the entire Internet Of Things; from a personal scope, to the world economy. It even redefines AI. The path of least resistance changes from survival and fraud, to thriving and collaboration based on ROI.
Complex dynamic systems all begin with about 3 intial conditions that iterate to produce all the complexity we experience. When cause seems divorced from effect, that "emergence" came from non-lineararity. Matter starts with electrons, protons and neutrons, and out emerges beautiful sunrises. Poverty, corruption, etc. are not “problems”, they are manifestations of the initial conditions. Trying to “solve” poverty at the manifestation level will never work long term. Real change comes from altering initial conditions. Castpoints simply mimics Life's initial conditions.
Genetic algorithms use natural selection to easily solve simple linear problems like the best design for a tug boat propeller. CP solves any complex nonlinear problem, in practical ways, without having goals, nor even understanding the exact problems, because solutions are emergent.
Because Castpoints aligns and connects us with reality, win-win relationships become the default. So as we do typical daily linear work, emergence creates miracles and saints.
We constantly trade one thing for another. Trading is a commodity, yet most markets are still fragmented, which keeps overhead, and therefore fees, high. Castpoints integrates all markets so there are no more cracks to fall through, nor shadows to manipulate from. The larger the scope of integration, the more amazing properties emerge. At the civilization scope: Fees and fraud drop 95%, content and reputation are easily monetized, and copyright, law, justice, poverty, and illusions are all easily "fixed". Intrinsic and extrinsic motivations naturally align with proven best practices. Initial targets are disorganized groups with lots of turnover: PTA's, and schools.
Events that pay dividends pay a transaction fee of ~ 5 cents. This can be paid with money, or any event's shares. Yes, Castpoints is constantly accruing future income streams. In this sense, Castpoints is like a royalty company: SLW, FNV, RGLD. These companies typically trade funding for future streams of income, an awesome business model. They have market caps of ~7 billion, with only ~20 employees. They are nearly immune from all the potential problems of typical companies, and often have lots of upside. All interests are aligned.
Basic practical examples
- Active shooters can hurt 1 person every 6 seconds. Using Castpoints for a school emergency management system drops response time 95%, costs 99% less than other offerings, vastly reduces school liability, reduces false reports, and can be used by anyone, not just EMS professionals.
- Personalized opportunities between supply and demand are automatically sent as alerts, without data mining. Specifically, the world's billions of undervalued people become a juicy arbitrage opportunity, yet can’t be exploited. Yes, when Castpoints goes live, poverty, in all it's forms, dies.
- Current search engines rank things indirectly and are constantly gamed and so have significant overhead. Castpoints ranks everything directly based on proven ROI which can't be gamed. Overhead is ~ zero.
Castpoints must be a titanic, invasive, and complex data base, right?
Nope! How? Just copy nature's operating system! "Evolution" is the most powerful system known. So just codify it for practical use. Then everything scales and self configures, including prices, based on supply and demand, like nature, with microscopic overhead. Why is current overhead valued now? It's believed to create a moat to insulate competitors away. But when entities are doing thier UNIQUE thing, compeditors become collaborators.
Castpoints is the bridge / framework that unifies virtual reality, and reality.
Effectiveness rises 25 to 100% ...
While using Castpoints to help get your normal daily work done, you are really manipulating things and their connections which makes PATTERNS in every (fractal) context. So in a personal relationship context, if a pattern is missing or messed up, CP suggests a high probability solution. Yes, if you are "missing" a partner, CP will literally connect you with your "missing piece" that is mostly complementary with all contexts. Not based on questionnaires, AI, data mining, etc., but based on a pattern fitting of who you both are / are not, what you both do / do not, and the rates of change.
When looking at “your dashboard” in the abstract view, you would see patterns. Where the patterns are clear and strong, CP suggests next steps based on proven ROI and you can just work on those. Where the patterns are not beautiful AND getting in the way of the other stuff, CP suggests high probability patterns to add and or subtract. These patterns can be any resource: people, tasks, a walk, etc. The pattern / archetype interface groups banal things into one thing. This grouping and abstraction up one level is a reason "productivity" is so high and people have so much fun!
... boring! Get to the sex part! Fine! Whereas the Cambrian Explosion was of “hard bodies”, Castpoints engenders an explosion of the non physical: creativity, discovery, freedom, connection, serendipity, spirituality.
Angel investors now often start meetings asking for a show of hands asking people if they think their startup is "disruptive". As most hands go up, angels say, "well, you're wrong!" Angels are usually correct.
Imagine the floor you are standing on is a slab of ice.
· Point: Some mottling is typical variation.
· Line: Dragging a shovel disrupts the surface locally.
· Plane: Throwing sand on it creates a paradigm shift to a non slip, opaque surface.
· Volume: Raising the temperature above freezing creates a pond. What a phase change is to H2O, Castpoints is to humanity.
