At the core of this model:
~ is the autocatalytic, autopoetic process arising as the relationship between the planet, technology and human interactivity via information processes.
Information itself is the life blood of the processes, and is related to and utilised in various ways due to the needs of the contributing factors to the situation, both existent and emergent. Using an analogy of the planet as a biospheric spaceship upon which intelligent and imaginative sentient life forms are dependent gives us a cognitive handle by which to grasp our inquiry.
Information is derived from observations taken and recorded by inhabitants of the planet.
a/ The methods of derivation and the effects of conditioned perceptual and cognitive interpretation upon the data are primarily undertaken most effectively by a philosophical and transpersonal psychological collective mind. Insights into the structures of consciousness operating upon the information can be formulated through these methods.
b/ The body of information itself can now be subject to analysis, reflection and iterative structural and dynamic interactive development via methods in constant process in the information and communication technology sector.
c/ Information available from all sources pertinent to all living and life support systems can be aggregated, integrated and displayed through the developing Earth Dashboard project.
d/ Information specific to living systems at all scales can be aggregated, modelled and explored in a simulation environment thanks to the combined resources of a, b & c.
e/ The system structure and user interface for the acquisition and distribution of information (knowledge, resources, etc) is the connective factor at the level of all human beings, which can allow for optimisation of resource distribution according to informed need and availability.
f/ the combination of all these factors can guide the development and implementation of a technological convergence in the form of enabling infrastructure for a coherent global mind, which represents the minimal/configurable operating system for the planet.
