Three main software designs—Spectasia—GlobalOpt—KeyMail.

I have written 8 books and 20 papers. I have given major public lectures, several keynotes, and held numerous academic positions.


  • Natural-Thoughts – Thought Ownership (individual and collective senses); Thought Freedom and Thought Equality (free assembly).
  • Thought-Atom – An isolated thought pattern (probably has no fixed context); may be secret, private or open in Type; and exist (as a particular instance/copy or Form) inside mind(s), on media or in an implanted Form (or design) inside of a machine/computer/system.
  • Thought-Ownership – Thinker/owner may freely view/assemble/share said thoughts; and the owner chooses who may see/access said thought-atom(s) (sharing-rights may be set). Established in human rights laws{1}, and provided/upheld by technology which (to guarantee said right) operates according to prescribed techno-right(s).
  • Thought-Freedom – Ability to see/create/share (or to percieve, associate, judge) thoughts to/with/from other humans.
  • Thought-Equality – All (naturally owned) thought-atoms are ‘equal’ in terms of free-assembly, accessibility, and context-of-use (context-free thought-atom).
  • Machine Implanted-Thoughts – Attributes, Modes, Forms, Elements and Categories of thoughts; as built into machines/systems/computers for particular purpose(s). Machine Implanted-Thoughts equate to ALL of the design features present in all machines / systems / computers; and fully prescribe how machines operate/interact with humanity.
  • Circuits of Thought – Thoughts assembled/weaved together into a coherent bodies of functionality, consisting of bundles of thought-atoms plus relationship ‘fibres’, closely interconnecting and operating (using appropriately designed technology) so as to produce beneficial outcome(s) for humanity.
  • Thought-Space – A medium in which the thinking process takes place. This is assumed to be a combination of one or more human mind(s); merged with any mind-extending and/or mind-supporting method(s) and/ or communication/technological tools that may be said to exist (and which aid in the creation/vision/sharing of new/old thought-patterns).
  • Operational-Flow – [A] The degree of free-movement that exists within a thought-space such that any thinker can: see, create and share concepts. [B] The quantified: atomicity, forward/backward/omni/source linkage, plus overlays/comments; present in a thought-space.
  • Atomic-Network – Network data massively distributed plus replicated to multiple locations. An atomic network makes a hyper-network possible, and enables construction of a world-brain and/or a world-thought-space; and through the amalgamation of large numbers of thought-atoms / micro-thoughts etc.
  • Hyper-Context – An item of knowledge which is situated within the broadest possible context(s), with many possible definitions, opinions, overlays, viewpoints, links to uses, histories, and annotations etc; and all (or a vast majority) are visible.
  • Hyper-Thought – A thought which exists in a hyper-context.
  • Hyper-Network – A computer network providing hyper-context for all knowledge.
  • World Brain – A world knowledge system based on tiny pieces of thoughts/data that can be connected in every possible way, complete with overlaid links and connections that go in every direction. Data (and thoughts) have deep structure; and it is this that must be represented, made visible and accessible to all.
  • World Thought-Space – A thought-space comprising all of the connected internal and external, local and global, thought spaces/atoms/patterns/concepts present etc; and hence it contains all of the public knowledge of humanity.
  • Self as Computer – self merging with computer.
  • Glowing Machines – merging of computer displays with ‘reality’.
  • Atomic Networking – the opposite of centralised networks.
  • Lookable User Interface – affords the maximum degree of visibility for on-screen objects—developed first LUI in 2001.
  • Personal / Augmented Virtual Reality  – VR adapts to the user.
  • Real Virtualities  – opposite of VR – real-world virtual worlds.
  • Open Publication –  anyone can publish anything to anyone.
  • Self-Centric Data – data that respects techno-rights.
  • Data Immortality – data that cannot be destroyed.
  • Hologram Mirror  – a life-size 3D reflection of a person.
  • Super-dispersion in diamonds – diamond cut for spectral flair.
  • Bandwidth Magnification – binary stream compression.
  • Techno-rights – open access to knowledge, open publication, private communication and public sharing of knowledge.
  • Technopia – a society so arranged as to benefit all; upholds everyone’s  techno-rights. Affords democratic decision making.
