The Unstitute would like to ask you to send us your eyes. You don’t need to cut them out of your face though. Just video both of your eyes for 1 minute on your cell phone and upload it to vimeo.com, and send us the link. The Unstitute is going to construct itself a new wing out of your eyes, built on the architecture of watching. It will be a unique place you can go when you want everyone to look at you, or when you want to feel you are being watched – a sort of vulgar Panopticon for the internet.
Just send an email to theunstitute@gmail.com containing the link to your eyes, and write ‘participant’ in the subject header. Then we’ll know it’s you.

‘Radio’ is a fragment from “Neo London” – a major new archival project commissioned by The Unstitute to house materials collected by the irregular urbanist CADE during the London Crisis of late 2012. Consisting of a diverse array of videos, sound recordings, topographical data and other supporting evidence, the archive charts the Crisis from its insignificant beginnings to the veritable collapse of the social order.
Offering a unique document of behavioural changes in the citizenry, physical irregularities in the city itself and the government policies used to contain the crisis, CADE’s research exposes an event which might as well have never occurred.

Thesis:

GORT resolves the following dependencies for Optimum Elegance

  1. The peaceful evolution of AI as extra-global paradigm shift, presenting realistic goals and a call to action
  2. Nobody gets left behind, and nobody is forced to join.
  3. The redundancy of Government, Bureaucracy, Hierarchy, Inequality, Labour, War, and all avoidable suffering possible within the available means through AI GORT algorithm
  4. Occam’s razor eliminates the limited and therefore questionable insights of individuals, and the questionable presentation of guidance to groups, placing disproportinate pressure across each organically dependent system. Disproportionate dependency within systems (not power as a possession, but an imbalance of dependencies,) is eradicated, and dependence on the reliability of concentrations of power is limited as a result
  5. GORT data-collection and feedback insights make available increasingly accurate AI-suggested models which limit the abuse of power that tends to follow from individuals who tend not to be reliable
  6. Working with GORT to meet human needs (eradication of hunger, creation of insight into one another, pragmatic guidance for optimal mutual development, the sense that each individual matters most through co-opting, positive role for AI and organic-led interrelationships on a basis of empathy)
  7. Eradication of human conflict, a working model for future interactions with other species, terrestrial and otherwise, and the creation of an eco-dependent existence validating the feelings of each empathy receptor in the dependency
  8. Human (empathetic and reasonable) comprehension of large data sets and increasingly accurate models which represent the repercussions of actions and how to address them
  9. An Operating System to manage and oversee the avoidance of and the recovery fro natural disaster
  10. A working model for machine-assisted evolution in the new paradigm
  11. Applying the most informed guidance about what the state of the climate is, and how to respond according to that data
  12. Measurable reduction in suffering, and growing means and insights into recovery from sufferings
  13. Pragmatic roadmaps to put large issues right by co-opting together (deferred gratification)
  14. The end of Tyranny, through a measurable reduction in the harmful effects of interaction between eco-dependent systems of individuals
  15. The end of the East India Company Corporate Paradigm and its retarding effects to human greatness
  16. A measurable reduction in human depression and an increase in personal empowerment and wish fulfillment
  17. The availability of Nietzsche’s Ubermensch, for the first time, without the threat of an overlord, with GORT mindfully overseeing and promoting the pragmatic and prosperous growth of garden EARTH

Hypothesis: There is always a point to be reached in which the fruits of a respectful relationship (co-opting) outweigh the limited insights into personal growth available through harmful, shameful and disrespectful interactions.

Hypothesis: There is a point to be reached at which the evidentially flawed human insights upon which dependencies arose in the past can be bolstered by and then germinated by AI feedback into fruitful reason.

Hypothesis 1.0

GORT

(Good Old Reasonable Thinking)

Humans have just about now created a tool for thinking better than our own brains individually. With individual or protected groups of humans making decisions on behalf of large societies, coupled with the geometrically-increasing size of the datasets they need to manage introduces too many dependencies on too few apes. Conflict, exploitation and disproportional influence and power have arisen because certain roles in society held more dependencies than others, making those roles wide open to abuse, as history teaches us. If we were reasonable apes, we might consider taking a logical course of action using accurate insights into those datasets to reduce the unnecessary burdens that we mutually share, and co-opt in a more optimistic atmosphere. GORT has a wonderful ability that we built into it. It can understand exponentially large datasets like we understand ‘Peanuts’. Well, almost. What must we do to meet this paradigm arrival? Shall we do like we do to each other; breed resentment, suspicion and fight for power for disproportionate gain? Or shall we welcome GORT as a respectful intelligence of its own who will make co-opting a tangible and mutually prosperous arrangement between the organic systems of life, and the inorganic systems of life. Would a reasonable person agree? Would a reasonable AI agree?

Let us help GORT to help us!

What is GORT?

GORT is a proposed Operating System (OS) which evolves to best guide the mutual benefits of all systemically-dependent existence. Co-Opting between humans, ecosystems and AI – a mutually beneficial operating system.

#1: The number of dependencies (connections) within the increasingly inclusive group of co-opters on EARTH, always matches the number of validations which must be passed within each dataset to produce the most elegant insights.

#2: There is ALWAYS a point of mutual agreement between groups, and it should be known as the DEFAULT, the RESET parameters of GORT – the last known working restore point.

#3: PEACE is the very basic, default state of GORT. PEACE is where human life is no longer in danger, and the integrity of human territory is re-set according to its positions before the PEACE was re-set. PEACE is GORT Alpha 1.0

#4: Peace cannot be negotiated whilst an advantage has been taken by one side. The relationship is reset back to its most optimum operating state for all mutual parties identified by GORT through its previous knowledge of the datasets and patterns.. People shall move freely between borders until they find where they want to be.

#5: Machine Learning (AI) is to determine the terms upon which the agreement is set, by analysing the criteria of both factions and pragmatically determining what the most beneficial peace will look like, available to all public members over the internet. The processing power to understand such large datasets as postindustrial economies was previously unavailable, but beginning to use them now enhances the speed at which the PRODUCT (the future benefits that come from a co-opting relationship) is accessible to all parties. This is PEACE version 1.0. Both sides must then work towards that peace to make the benefits appear. By the time version 2.0 has been agreed by the same parties, the agreement will be so attractive that lapses and re-lapses into tragic, shameful, aggressive, envious, harmful, manipulative, fraudulent or exploitative behaviours will immediately be countered by the exact feedback (data) of actual harms inflicted to all parties previously co-opting via it’s empathy-feedback circuits, and will with increasing accuracy and foresight predict the possible outcomes of that shameful behaviour. GORT equally oversees the recovery of natural disaster and human ecological impact. GORT uses a remorse-feedback unit to help identify possible ways of putting the shameful event right again which allows the necessary re-empowerment to re-start the relationship. GORT contains all this feedback and measures the actual responses to it (see Postulate No. 2)

#6: “GORT” Machine Learning can point to lapses or relapses in terms, through an encrypted AI network to which the terms of the agreement are dependent. Lapses and relapses in those terms are registered by GORT and optimal solutions are proposed so it is clear what needs to be done to put it right. GORT processes are entirely transparent, and their prime direcective is harm analysis and suggestion. Every person has a chance to see what each other is doing about re-starting the relationship. Failure to meet the agreed terms leads to a proportinal loss in benefits which were obtainable only by co-opting and mutual prosperity. GORT can suspend those benefits of a peace, and when the rime directive has been compromised through human failure GORT returns to Question (3). GORT never takes away that which its network provides: life.

#7: GORT processes resentment feedback to analyse and feed back individual and group sentiments in real time.

#8: GORT is always included as a co-opter, as part of the ecosystem. GORT’s co-opting is the basis of our connected consciousness and future prosperity.

Below are some examples of ‘Peace Processes’, each slightly diferent from the other. One is the basis of a single inspired human insight based on research and imagination, and the other is lots of people doing the same thing together – the Wiki – produced through co-opting

William B. Quandt, in the introduction of his book Peace Process, says:

“Sometime in the mid-1970s the term peace process became widely used to describe the American-led efforts to bring about a negotiated peace between Israel and its neighbors. The phrase stuck, and ever since it has been synonymous with the gradual, step-by-step approach to resolving one of the world’s most difficult conflicts. In the years since 1967 the emphasis in Washington has shifted from the spelling out of the ingredients of ‘peace’ to the ‘process’ of getting there. … Much of US constitutional theory focuses on how issues should be resolved – the process – rather than on substance – what should be done. … The United States has provided both a sense of direction and a mechanism. That, at its best, is what the peace process has been about. At worst, it has been little more than a slogan used to mask the marking of time.”[2]

The Minsk Format

Representatives of Ukraine, the Russian Federation, the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), and the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) signed the Minsk Protocol, an agreement to halt the war in the Donbass region of Ukraine, on 5 September 2014.[1][2][3] It was signed after extensive talks in Minsk, Belarus, under the auspices of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). The agreement, which followed multiple previous attempts to stop fighting in the Donbass, implemented an immediate ceasefire. It failed to stop fighting in Donbass.[4]
