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 correcting, and self configuring.

By integrating all markets, Castpoints effectively allocates any resource while reducing risk for individuals and groups. Focus changes from control, to aligning with reality.

Executive summary · Podcast

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.
Examples of low ROI activities:
- 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.

Many efforts target a "pain POINT", yet never address context. That small a SCOPE does not usually reduce fragmentation. Everyone knows insurance is ripe for change, but no one has done it because current ideas are not nearly as well INTEGRATED compared to what exsists.

The more simple and stricly mecahnical a system is (un-integrated), 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 knowable in hindsight, if ever. That's why people get so confused, then look for understanding, which creates a void for manipulation.

Which OPERATING SYSTEM do you want to use? One mainly made by people's defensive projections, that soon fail. Or one that nature has been successfully using forever?

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 & 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 category? How? Nature proactively designs and fills all contexts. Copy that! :-)

Generally, technology speeds things up, while organization 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.

The science
Complex dynamic systems all begin with about 3 simple intial conditions that iterate to produce all the complexity we experience. When cause seems divorced from effect, that effect is called non-linearar "emergence" which is possible due to a critical mass of connections and nodes (Metcalf's Law). Example: 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 never work's long term. Real change comes from altering initial conditions. Castpoints simply mimics Life's initial conditions.

Genetic algorithms use natural selection to easily solve 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 fake news are all easily "fixed". Intrinsic and extrinsic motivations naturally align with proven best practices. And those best practices rapidly propagate worldwide. Initial targets are disorganized groups with lots of turnover: PTA's, schools, disaster areas.

Revenue model
Nodes that pay dividends pay a transaction fee of ~ 5 cents. This can be paid with money, or any nodes's shares. Yes, Castpoints is constantly accruing future income streams. In this sense, Castpoints is like the royalty companies SLW, FNV, RGLD. They trade funding for future streams of income, an awesome business model. They have market caps of ~7 billion, yet only ~20 employees. They are nearly immune from all the potential problems of typical companies, and often have lots of upside.

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.
- The world's billions of undervalued people become a juicy arbitrage opportunity, yet can’t be exploited. When Castpoints goes live, poverty, in all it's forms, dies.
- Current search engines rank things indirectly and so are constantly gamed engendering significant overhead. Castpoints ranks everything directly based on proven ROI (from actual transactions which can't be gamed. Overhead is ~zero.

Castpoints must be a titanic, invasive, and complex data base, right?
Nope! 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. We value overhead now because we believe it creates a moat to insulate competitors away. But when entities are doing thier UNIQUE thing, compeditors become collaborators.

Effectiveness rises 25 to 100% ...
... boring! Get to the sex part! Fine! Whereas the Cambrian Explosion was “hard bodies”, Castpoints engenders an explosion of the non physical: creativity, discovery, freedom, connection, serendipity, spirituality. People keep asking, "What everybody will do all day once robots do all the commodity jobs?": Creating and enjoying unique experinces.

While using Castpoints to help get the daily work done, people are really manipulating things and their connections which makes PATTERNS in every context (fractal). 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, data mining, etc., but based on a high ROI pattern fitting of context, content, and rates of change.

The "abstract view", of dashboards shows patterns. Where the patterns are clear and strong (archtypes), CP suggests next steps based on proven ROI. Where the patterns are not beautiful AND getting in the way of the other stuff, CP suggests high probability changes via 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!

Startup context
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.

Phase changing things are challenging to explain Similar alignments:
Process · machine unlearning · ant systems · fun & productivity · organization · 3 initial conditions · best leaders · agile; pull · Teal · Holacracy · context and linking.

Core problem: the understanding & mislabeling of difference
CP says: Fear and selfishness are manifestations of the initial condition of placing a meaning (story) on “separation” other than what it means: simply "difference”.

I have yet to see a startup integrated enough to effectively address spirituality...
A "religious experience” is likely when one gives up meanings (beliefs) of separation and then one can be aligned with reality / divinity. Then, once smaller patterns align with bigger patterns, lots of energy can flow, which “feels” good. Almost by definition, the higher energy flowing “down" into us is from “emergence”, aka a miracle: from our limited perspective we don’t understand what / how it happened, but it was “good”. Aspects of this are now labeled a “flow state”.

Organization via
Difference means...
All about...
Energy flows...
Real (low vibration)
Small groups
Existence, or annihilation, 1 or 0. No story
Around every corner; nay, in our midst
Minimum with chaotic bursts
Abstract (medium vibration)
Business (agreement), gov (force)
Localized "meaning”. Busy substituting old stories with new stories (beliefs)
Self seeking it's place
We try to feel better by forcing others to align with us, instead of us aligning with reality. (Author[itarian]ing reality)
Medium chaotic and a few laminar tides.
Emergence (high vibration)
Alignment with reality "Just is." Not interested in stories. Interested in experinces
Self knowing it's place and acting from there
When out of place
Maximum laminar throughput feels like bliss
("Vibration" mostly in the E=MC^2 context. Matter is slow energy; energy is fast matter.)

Castpoints is the bridge / framework that unifies virtual reality, and reality.

Castpoints is a framework that gently replaces beliefs with knowing (gnosis) so that we can effectively interact with an abundant reality (not illusions / beliefs), know our place, and know our purpose. Beliefs are a valuable bridge between lower and higher vibrations. But...

At our stage of social development, change seemingly risks disconnection (death) and so is pushed against. The mind / heart can only get us to the precipice. At some point one lets go of everything to just be. This “leap of faith” is a phase change into more aliveness. Because we can’t know the other side until we get there, the ego, being part of the lower vibrations, thinks this emergent future is annihilation. It will protect its cherished beliefs, that it “knows” has gotten it this far (because it has “experienced them 'working' ”), often to the grave. Is this partly why we have phase change of physical “death"?

All this to say that Castpoints is the first known “created” spiritual thing, literally the first “general purpose artificial intelligence". It will effectively, and safely, link quadrillions of nodes and connections producing nearly inconceivable emergences and serendipity.
