Twitter Must Build A Meritocracy Of Nature’s Truth

Almost ten years ago, I wrote how Twitter must build a meritocracy to pursue and promote the best-known normalization of nature’s truth and become a source of inspiration rather than the constant barking dog of unbridled nonsense it is today.

I reemphasize that point here again, for the technology purveyors keep getting away with infecting the masses with truths uncorrelated and detached from a human theory, in the words of Albert Einstein, that determines what can be discovered. Technology is not only the unprotected backdoor to nation-state sovereignty but also to the acuity of the human brain.

Technology feeds disproportionate make-believe, unlike the four hundred and twenty theologies humanity conjures up, still lacking extraordinary evidence to support its extraordinary claims.

A scientist must prove the theory before it can be applied. Yet, a technologist can sell any trojan horse of make-believe to the world to make a buck. That has to stop to improve human adaptability to nature’s entropy.

In building the new Twitter, Elon Musk, just like any scientist, must be ready to explain the first-principles he uses, the proof of his theory, the workings of his marketplace system, and the rulebook he applies in that hierarchical order. Then, he will learn that freedom of speech is not a technological problem but an evolutionary one.

So, let me introduce three gating success factors in reconstructing Twitter to reflect the moving target of reality:

  • The pursuit of truth is subject to relativity, as I describe in Learn To Think. Therefore, Twitter must deploy algorithms supporting cyclical hierarchies to maintain and trace nature’s unfolding reality as humans perceive it.
  • All marketplace participants must become identifiable as being who they say they are, even when representing companies. Twitter’s reputation is a summary derivative of the reputation of its users. Those who behave badly must be clearly distinguishable from those who build Twitter’s integrity of truth, and their reputation must get a hit before Twitter’s reputation does. Reputation, too, must become subject to relativity.

I believe Elon Musk’s heart is in the right place. While he has achieved tremendous success in certain areas, he has demonstrated to follow the letter of the books he reads a little too literally, showing symptoms of lazy thinking, in the words of Einstein, from reading too many books. Humanity is stuck in the solipsism of its own make-believe, a dangerous proposition when the only truth that matters is nature’s.

Twitter can become the first marketplace system to harbor the proximal development of human truth derived from nature’s truth, the latter to which we must abide to prolong our survival. To do so, Twitter should steer clear of artificial intelligence and embrace Einstein’s theory of relativity, which we have mainly ignored in the realm of technology for the last hundred years.

The sign of a vibrant, innovative nation is its willingness to pursue the ever-unfolding discovery of nature's truth and reinvent itself continually against those proven new normalizations upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
