How the Platform Works

Users will choose the “kind of mind” they wish to “enter” and will choose an avatar representing their preferred mind. For instance, a user could choose to be a mind-let and “become” a bird and consequently could choose a robin or eagle as their avatar.

The avian user will

  • enter into the mind-world web page of mind-lets and choose their avatar.
  • “think” and “act” with the mental powers available to “birds.”
  • Explore and share all the information they can find about birds (their powers of flight, nests, migration patterns, etc.).
  • Highlight crises facing avian populations around the world and build action plans to resolve these.
  • Form social communities with other bird avatars communicating content that would be relevant for birds.

Most of the content on the platform will be user-generated.

 

Structure of the Metaverse of Mind

Biologists classify life under different domains (Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya) and under these domain different kingdoms of life (monera, protista, fungi, plantae, animalia). These classifications are based on the differing characteristics that define them.

Likewise, the Metaverse of Mind is made up of different domains (Mind 1 through Mind 5).

Under the domains of the Metaverse of Mind are the kingdoms (Mind-Cloud through Minds).

Everything around us is acting or is capable of acting. Hence we call them agents that belong to the various “domains” and “kingdoms” of the Metaverse of Mind. These agents have different kinds of powers as we see below –

The mind “domains” and “kingdoms” under which the agents are classified depends on the types of powers they have.

Autonomous agents. Purpose-driven. Ingenuity of instinct. Semantic-Information-processors. Innovative. Highly developed sensory structures and advanced conscious awareness. Social group behavior.  Emotions, feelings. Sensory-thought-based behavior.

MIND 5

Minds

Homo sapiens

Autonomous agents. Purpose-driven. Semantic-Information-processors. Innovative. Highly developed sensory structures and advanced conscious awareness. Social group behavior.  Emotions, feelings, cogitative behavior. Thinking and oral expression in concepts with a real world impact (language, ideas like “money” or “nation”) . Reasoning. Choices. First-person perspective. 

Each “kind of mind” is incarnated in specific types of agents. And, as we said, the sort of powers of which an agent is capable determines which “kind of mind” it falls under. If an agent is a purpose-driven autonomous agent but does not have a nervous system or sensory organs, it is the kind of mind that comes right after energy, namely “life”, what we call Mind 2. There is inevitable overlap between the categories and some agents could be classified under more than one head. What is common to all is their mind-ish-ness.
