"We may be nearing the end of the relevance of the spoken medium... getting to where we're ready, yearning even, perhaps, for something more metaversal... something denser and more information rich, as a way of relating and interacting."

Idea for a free/open-source software project: MAPAS, a peer-to-peer, map-based app or protocol for organizing:

Maintenance, Assistance, Peace And Safety
Maintenance, Assistance, Peace, Art, & Suchlike
Maintenance, Assistance, Parties, Art, & Safety

The Metaverse Era: fiction & nonfiction, exploring & learning, keeping up with what's happening (~4 mins from 5-29-21 podcast)

Four years ago the first version of the Zx paradigm framework was published. (Four additional versions were subsequently posted.) The project tried to formulate a recipe for a new paradigm with two main ingredients: a kind of unconditional positive regard for all beings, and an openness to perpetual learning or growth. Looking it over now, I still find it to be a remarkable though perhaps insufficient attempt! 💚👁️zhergish.wixsite.com/zherg/sin

Maybe some version of the proposal, possibly a less obvious version, could in fact work, or maybe the optimal strategies will turn out to be very different. In either case, engaging with such uncomfortable issues, given the interconnectedness of everything, can spur us to rethink and change some things in our lives, in our spheres of influence, that are due for rethinking and changing.
