The loyalty & rewards market is over a trillion dollar sector per year and is global. It has no boundaries and is not subject to significant regulation or scrutiny. Everyone has loyalty points of some sort, and our data shows that over 59% of loyalty points are unused or unclaimed. In the U.S. alone, there are 3.3B loyalty programs (that’s 29 per household) and less than half are actively used. – Gokturk

CP has a huge royalty emphasis. It’s partly how copyright is taken car of. Loyalty and royalty are close..

Working with spectrum kids. There is an economic duality. “why should a ton of money be spent on getting 1 kid to learn basic stuff, when that kid is always going to be reliant on others. If we spent the same amount of money on a typical kid, the would totally excel.” So in CP, you don’t have to choose like that. It’s more like The Tekos school – to really learn something, you teach it to others. So now the non typical kid is automatically socially included because the typicals don’t always get easy kids to teach. And everyone gets to go at their own pace.


1.3 CP Movie: necklace

Zoom out to Arcs of electricity – electron beams – going between planets. Follow them to zoom into the face of a big hammer forge. The electricity dances on the face of the iron head and forms patterns like a snow flake. It’s all electric blue.

This hammer and guy reside on a moon of Jupiter. He slams the hammer down. This forges amulets that glow white hot, then fad and disappear. The appear on other people as broaches attached to their skin on  chest.

When one appears on a person, they are pretty happy: These thins are a physical manifestation of support and encouragement.



1.01 CP movie: Opening scene: introductions

A small group of kids doing complex acapela (mostly) with patty cake hands. Focus is on the hands and faces. Background is an integration of nature and buildings. Camera spins around all of them in a lemniscate. Focus fades to just the hands that are creating complex abstract flower designs.

Light background music.

Scene A – introduction of builders.
Night with a full moon. Fade from black to couple kissing by an open campfire on a hill. It’s date night. There is a country bouquet of flowers nearby. At the bottom of the frame is the would “Builders”. Pause a few seconds, then the parents stop kissing, feel concerned, and look toward home. Camera follows their look and swoops down the valley to their house in the middle of the field. The camera goes past a bunch of black gov SUV’s and swat teams into the house, past a wall painted with humming birds feeding on flowers. the house is warm, creative and happy. Then down stairs through a opening to a tunnel that is slowly closing up via a silver sheen. Camera zooms into the silver and sees millions of nano bots building a wall of dirt. Camera zooms out, follows the tunnel until it comes to a couple.

The 20 year old girl is the child of the first couple. The 20 year old guy is her boyfriend. She is fiddling with a sled type thing and getting into it. He is checking a screen and says, “Exit seems clear.” He joins her. They both have a big grin as she puts the sled in motion. It rockets down perfectly straight rails at about 80 mph. The camera snaps back to the campfire that is now out and a packed up camp site. Camera fades to black.

Scene B — into of heart
Camera fades to guy mediating and flows toward his heart. Camera fades to the color of his shirt which is green. Camera unfades to the guy in a grotto (his heart of hearts)

Scene C — intro of organizers

1.0 CP movie: Synopsis

Mountain Roots Grow Trees That Are Wolves

Blockbuster action archetype style that integrates: NANOTECH + SINGULARITY + LIGHT… And no one gets hurt. A positive story about how humans and information might not just coexist, but thrive.  3 sets of archetypes working independently, yet interdependently without knowing it:

Hands – Builders of nano tech and other things. They are a family and make stuff.
Head – Design of how things are organized. Also a family and they code how things intersect, decide, and act. Permission, control, systems, etc. 2 twins do most of the work (I and O). Basically as progress follows Moore’s Law and we reach the Singularity, their software provides the scaffold that everything uses to interact win-win.
Heart – Power of inspiration, trust, and doing the right thing. Integrating heaven and earth. A runner at the top of the game. Super nice guy, uses multiple sources to excel. Keeps quiet, falls in love with a raven haired tall sports announcer. He uses infatuation to go faster. He uses everything to accomplish the goal, including real heart marketing.

Of course “Control” tries to intercede, but the trend has changed and often very humorously fails.

CP makes these startups / companies obsolete

  • Anything ad based (FB, GOOGL, TWTR) will vanish.
  • Markets that match __ with __ (Lyft, AirB&B, EBAY, stock markets, anything “Uber for __”) must change to mostly offering Certins, or vanish.
  • Bureaucracies, lawyers, and especially politicians, will vanish.

I can go on for days. I hope you get the point 🙂

Can’t resist — $64 million! Clutter: Transforming How We Manage Our Belongings. We’re excited to announce a $64 million Series C Good for them!! But seriously…

Taxes and the poor — Nature does not really have poverty because…

Q: “Sales taxes hurt poor people more than rich people. Does nature really have taxes?”

A: “Friction” is a tax on getting stuff done in the physical context. Biology: parasites can cull the weak.

In a correctly designed social system, “poor people” are seen as a very undervalued resource. People who are good at unlocking that value can do so, and both parties profit. Flipping houses it an example. Seller gets money fast; buyer puts in resources, then gets money; house is better. 3 wins.

When in a similar context as “poor people”, the non poor people are incented to help a poor person shine because that is low hanging fruit that can make that context better. (I wish San Francisco would tackle their homeless issue. It’s a disaster.)

If the system is actually designed like nature, nobody can be exploited. Exploitation means being able to buy low, then use force to sell high. (Guns, gov, shame, blackmail, etc.) That only happens in a fragmented market. Nature is an integrated, yet distributed, free market.

Specifically in this example, poor people can move to a relatively low tax municipality, and or, offer a royalty on their future earnings (or whatever). A (and others) place an order that starts with a high % royalty, but denotes a % royalty floor, and max duration. B (and others) offers a % ceiling, and min duration.

These orders iterate over time, from ideal, to acceptable. A meeting creates a win-win transaction where all interests are aligned.

Just like placing an order to buy 100 shares of AG at $10/share, with a max price of $10.50/share over a 5 hour time frame. The order price increases 10 cents per hour. No force, only pre specified agreement.

That is the most effective system I know of and is 100% grounded in physics. And then chemistry where the same thing is obvious via reaction rates, etc. Same then with biology. It’s just now entering psychology / sociology.
