The Alien's Project (TAP)

Yarışma Özeti

Hi. My name is Joe Shumaker and I'm a process engineer and game developer. My company is New Hope Products Company (NHPC.) Most of my success has come with physical board/activity games, but one of my projects got $4M+ in VC funding created a new type of social media network.

I've been working on another social media platform project for many years now. It's present working name is TAP and it's all about working toward world improvement via an innovative new way to crowdsource better information for important decision-making.

The present approach path of the project is to simultaneously co-create a provocative hook backstory while further developing and raising funding for further platform development. Both must coexist and work together to be successful.

I've created a seed backstory for this project that looks to unite our whole world around a new global problem that hopefully has minimal political stressors. I ask all interested contest candidates to first focus on helping co-create a best project backstory.

Planet Earth has just been contacted by aliens of a distant world. This in of itself is the initial major new problem our world wakes up to tomorrow. Who will represent our Earthly humanity to the aliens?

The aliens have contacted us because they need our help. They are more advanced than we. Humanity is teetering on the edge of a cliff of self-destruction whereas the aliens have obtained balance and long-term sustainability.

The aliens made it through a similar period in their own evolution. They know that if they help us with our Earthly problems, that we will be in a better place to help them.

The aliens see our greatest problem as communicating misinfo with all aspects of life. Healing will begin when this problem is fixed. Also Earthly leadership is a major problem. Before they will begin earnest efforts to help us, they require us to build and launch a new tool for generating and communicating more honest information.

They stipulate this new platform is to be Internet based, so as many people from all over the world can participate. Initially this tool will focus on one thing - to establish a single unified voice of humanity with which to communicate with the aliens... (more later)

IMHO, our world needs more honest information with which to make better next decisions - both personal and as groups working together. Imagine a new tech invention, like a Twitter, that provides one more option for how to generate and communicate pieces of information. But instead of everything being controlled by money and power to influence other's minds, now the info seeker has 100% control of the authorship group of that info they seek.

I have years of work into the detailed design of this type of tech tool.

I need help to create a better online visual (graphics) backstory for this project. The project needs to build a large following of co-creators. It needs to employ all forms of social media.

I'm looking to put together the early-stage further development team. I mostly need help translating my initial work into something even more attractive to the masses, especially adding graphics. It all starts with a great provocative backstory. Do you have ideas of how to take next steps with my initial work - given no capital at this time?

For now I have $100 to give to the one person who demonstrates they fully understand the primary objectives of this project. Hint: It's NOT to generate personal wealth!

    Hello, I am greatly interested in your work and I think the concept is very new and interesting. I have several graphical ideas or more like illustrations that can depict the concept and objective of your project. Would you be interested in these? It would be an honor to be able to contribute to your project!

      Hi Eunice. Sorry for the delay. I'm having trouble seeing all new questions from interested candidates.
      Thrilled you are interested in this project. It need lots more help from many more unique perspectives. It needs endless re-interpretations.
      A new facebook core group of potential developers now exists. Are you interested in looking at the latest developments or are you mostly just interested in the contest prize money?

    Thanks, is a pleasure. I must follow the story with the five characters, that is, blue, green, yellow, light and dark? Use images and explain the true form of synchronized contact. I love!! You can not imagine the road I have traveled ... Excellent the site you sent me. Soon I send my participation.

      I will work away at adding new episodes to my story, but the goal is to get you and others to interact and direct where the story goes next. What questions would you ask of the aliens? Create a rank-ordered (priority list) of questions. I have a solution that can combine any number of participant lists to create a single voice list. This is how groups can work together with more harmony in the future. This is how we can create any story or any information together as a more perfect collaboration effort.

    Hello! I'm a science fiction writer and I love the subject. The form of communication is basically astral unfolding, but there was someone who did it physically and about which I write in my books and articles, it is Nikola Tesla. I feel a great admiration for him. I know it was not human, it was extraterrestrial. I will do a great job for you and I will send it to you. Greetings and we are in touch.

      Nice to hear from you Antonia. Thanks for turning me onto Astral Projection.
      If you go to the link below, I think you will read that what I propose is slightly different than Astral Projection.

    Priority list objects are the key to GREAT improvement in communication. When they are used by groups, GREAT new possibility of harmonious collaboration is established. From them, after the melding of minds algorithm is applied, important new useful information about the group emerges. Within the priority list that speaks for the group can be seen three info zones of info: 1) positive possibility agreement; 2) negative possibility agreement; 3) possibility disagreement. With this new info, groups are in a much better place to continue working together with more harmony than divisiveness. This solution can work for any size group with any common objectives. Eliminated is the need for a leader or leadership team within the group. Leaders are always corruptible and/or always have self interest. In the alien world priority lists establish the best communications, cooperations and collaborations. They establish the best communities. We can easily do the same thing here on Earth.

    they observe social media..
    then they break silence
    communicating first via tv broadcast
    they open our eyes to our destructive ways and state their intention..
    they identify individuals who they could utilize for the 1st stage of their plan
    they give them the task of creating a system, that is central, free of control and accessible to all..
    answer social media, only drawback is the controlled servers
    so they select individuals with engineering capabilities..
    then give them blue print of servers outside control

    this becomes the system of communication as proposed in your contest..

      Ayodele,

      Cool! One of my objectives of posting this contest has been met. I wanted to spark minds to create more stories that bring attention to this looming problem of our present path - the destruction of planet and the self-destruction of humanity. Hope you stick with further developing your story!

    James et al, Just to be crystal clear. I do not presently have funding to further develop this project. It's the main reason, I've invented this new way to co-create story and new info of new possibility the way I have. An approach that requires no $$$ to get started. A solution that has very different rules of engagement. $$$ is needed in the near future to fully develop the full tool and solution. I'm confident this will emerge once a big enough following is formed. But first the project will need to grow from its seed stage with little to no $$$. The project simply needs helpers who can still hope and believe that world improvement is really possible.

      James H.,

      A different older project got funded. The VC group destroyed it by putting profit above its primary objective.

      TAP has no funding at this stage of development.

      Sorry, if this confusion has wasted your time. Again, I'm looking for people who will put primary objective, to improve the world, above $$$.

      I see what you’re saying now. This is why I said I had no intention of pursuing this without funding and resources that I can call my own, because I foresaw something like that happening.

      I wouldn’t say that this has been a waste of time. Really, I don’t mind. I understood you well enough to know the right questions to ask, so that neither you nor I were disappointed by the final end result. You were honest too. Others I’ve dealt with in the past would have revealed this bit of information only after I submitted the full work.

      No need to apologize! I hope you succeed and I wish you good luck in this endeavor. Take care.

    Imagine a new tool in our world that can take any two or more (no limit) thoughts, meld them together and create a single unified thought from all inputs. Each unique input has perfect equality of impact on what the single thought output emerges as. Consider this solution being used for every different type of group in existence and to come. The thought can be anything: voice, idea, story, info, solution, decision, approach, etc. This is the first new tech tool the aliens provide a design for and demand is built prior to providing responses to the human's questions.

      So in the context of you formulating YOUR prioritized list of questions for the aliens... This tool can take all question lists from all participants and combine them into a single list that best represents all the participants as one intelligent being. This is what the aliens want from us humans to begin a back-n-forth conversation.
      They're smart enough to know that more problems than good would arise - if things were left up to the humans with their current solutions of leadership, collaboration, cooperation and compromise.

    The Aliens had tried to communicate in the past with our leaders
    They sent emissaries
    when their intentions were understood by our leaders, they reneged on their agreement
    The race to the moon was actually a cover up to have a meet with the emissaries
    the emissaries are locked away in area 51
    technology is spun off their intellect
    now they are back in the 21st century
    unsure of who to trust
    they monitor our means of communication
    their appearance in the sky unnerves all
    the government blackballs their intention to the world
    they organize an attack
    with superior tech, they disarm the military effort

    Here's a simple way to participate in this contest. Imagine that there's a real alien who has made contact with us of Earth. Create a prioritized list of questions you would hand over to the alien to begin to learn about its world and the alien understanding of the greater universe. Consider that the aliens will only supply short responses, so create easy/simple questions vs. complex ones. Responses will come back one at a time with lots of time to react to each to edit/reprioritize next questions to address. Submit your initial list of questions. No limit to the number of good questions.

    We all are full of creativity. We all have strong beliefs. When freely sharing both, we all would love to have both readily connect and impact the lives of others. But we are all unique and different in many ways. We have values and preferences that differ. It's too easy to rub one another in negative ways because humans tend to focus on differences and disagreements vs. our similarities and agreements. This is why freedom of reinterpretation is so very important within the concept of collaboration. Great new solutions within the concepts of collaboration and communication should include the freedom to reinterpret as one sees best for their target audience.

    My first ill-fated attempt to mock up the latest thoughts of how this could actually begin with no cost tools that already exist in our world.

    https://sites.google.com/site/thealiensproject2019/preface

    I know a more professional dev team could do a much better job, but hopefully this helps make clearer how this proposed solution could begin to grow a following.

    There would be a central hub where anyone can go to learn what the original words of the particular graphic originated as.

    I would love to begin showing the world this new option with my TAP story. All I need is a small team of co-creators. The team needs at least one graphic artist who can create simple characters with universal graphic symbols and concepts that utilize no words. The team needs several people to represent all people - gender, generation, culture, language, etc. and storyboard the TAP story, but in time TAP followers will impact what the team produces by monitoring what gets changed and shared.

    This solution can be utilized by anyone to tell any story or generate and share any information. (As the concept is now revealed as new possibility.) But it needs at least one great initial story to prove the concept and to capture the attention of the world. And I believe I have this potentially GREAT new provocative global story with TAP.

    C1-P1:

    I'm working, in parallel, on a new way to tell a story and disseminate it using today's common-use tools.

    Feel free to focus on this with any proposal you submit.

    Imagine a serial (daily maybe) story being shared all over the web. Each day a new graphic image is shared. The image contains no words - just graphic objects. This is a solution so language is NOT a problem in the process of free sharing all over the world with friends, family, associates, followers and others.

    It's left up to the graphic receiver to initially imagine the story being told by each graphic. Accompanying each graphic are story words, but the words are not fixed and static. Instead this new storytelling solution format encourages the sharer to translate, edit, modify, etc. the words received into words their target audience may find a better communication of intent. Each resharer has 100% power and authority to change the words into anything new and share with anyone using any means available.

      Of course. I'm looking for an approach that will make the biggest connection with a target audience, of those less fortunate than us. Those who do not have an equal voice in the world today. I'm too close to my own work and the story it spurred on in me. This project needs new interpretation and a simple to understand story.
