1:02 – how to solve all the problems at once. hard to communicate that. so we were in the shadows figuring out how to communicate that.
1:07 – how do you explain stuff. we figured out we’re better at building it than documenting it for someone else to code.
1:09 – sceptor – like having an underlying language capacity – that then gets assembled into ie: english.. fundamental capacity out of which all protocols are built – a grammar for creating grammars… our basic memory unit is a semantic tree
creating programs that operate on meaning..
1:14 – we’re basically doing a fundamental change in the computing stack.. so ie: we couldn’t build this on top of bitcoin, but bitcoin could be built on top of this… it’s got the multi instant
1:22 – not just about changing money – we’re seeing things we don’t think are possible.. we’ll be able to self-organize in ways we ought to be able to – instead of having power struggles..
when we see this it’s like – whoa – we have to do this.. but then how to explain this.. a difficult story to tell
so – perhaps – model another way .. no?
