Pinnaclism: A Philosophy for Peace in a Brave New World.

Pinnaclism1

Pinnaclism

Taking the vastly superior ideas from any given political or social movement and combining them under one umbrella of exceeding peace and harmony with the laws of nature. When those ideas compete with one another, choose the ideas which present the most solutions and extrapolate the errors from faulty ideas and incorporate them into the solution as well. Using technology, genetics, and other applied sciences we could be capable of a vastly different and superior set of rules. Enhanced to bring about peaceful and beneficial outcomes, the mere presence of a transhuman chimera alone would greatly increase the possibility of peace being the outcome of potentially violent situations. There are many ideas in the world and universe on how best to bring solution to any given situation.  Pinnaclism is a standard for accepting the input from all voices able to speak on the matter, however illogical, analyzing that information, and using it to greatly increase the possibility for a peaceful arrangement to be made.

Extropy


The term extropy, coined by Tom Bell (T.O. Morrow) and defined by Max More in January 1988, as “the extent of a living or organizational system’s intelligence, functional order, vitality, energy, life, experience, and capacity and drive for improvement and growth.” Extropy expresses a metaphor, rather than serving as a technical term, and so is not simply the opposite of entropy, although it is also considered the appropriate antonym. The philosophy of Extropy, written by Max More, is the original philosophy of trans-humanism. (Source:) http://www.websters-dictionary-online.com/definition/extropy

With the use of genetics and cybernetics, we can greatly increase our output of solutions to various issues like violence, war, economic issues, political agenda’s, and the vastness that is everything else. This will lead to an acceleration of peaceful alternatives to nearly everything. The decision to disrupt this peace will have long since been solved by the time it occurs. While you are free to remain completely human and independent or whether you choose to merely be assisted by androids, or perhaps you go all the way and become a real trans-human the Pinnaclist ideology can be embraced by any self-aware entity so long as it is done voluntarily. Non-aggression plays a large role in creating a Pinnaclist lifestyle, you must learn to embrace the idea of patients, and to allow your pride to be an emotion that motivates you towards peace, not be replaced by spite and malice. While there is no strict enforcement of any rules, the idea is to allow yourself to volunteer your goodwill to the world and produce an outcome that benefits yourself and those around you.
This form of anarchism is the only solution to an authoritarian state where violence is deemed required to spread ideology. Pinnaclism seeks to listen to all positions and put them to the test on the market or public arena and adjusting to the reality of the situation. This requires a very active participation from individuals on a personal basis. Where problems exist, people must bring their ideas to the table, even if faulty, it will create a ground by which another can apply the benefit of hindsight and fill in the gaps. This process should repeat until ultimately the economic or social situation is solved to the satisfaction of those individuals involved. With increased computing power this process can be done as fast as the technology allows it to be produced. Implant this technology in a human chimera and allow it to thrive, one Transhuman could do the work of 10,000 men in just one day. In no way do I assert the numbers I’ve chosen to be scientifically legitimate, the point I hope to raise should be obvious.

Self defense under a Pinnaclist format would be a very powerful ability to ward off any attack whether natural or intended. The ability to eradicate negative and destructive consequences before they happen is much more powerful than blasting a thing into oblivion. While I believe it would be at first safe to rely on destructive power, eventually, non-lethal attack capabilities can decrease casualties and also enhance the ability of others to bring about much more positive and constructive consequences. I am not of mind to know exactly how this idea can be done in reality using technology and I would hate to try to speculate, however, I believe philosophy can help even the most ardent of scientist to be inspired enough to extrapolate an idea into a real working machine. The idea I’m trying to represent is that of pre-cognition. The ability to react to a situation either as fast as reality allows or making a breakthrough and gaining the ability to react to situations before they occur.

Try to imagine the possibilities and corrections you can make to my idea and run with it to the next person who works with you peacefully to create new realities, the idea is to allow this process to continue and grow into a new society based on real information and the accepting of new proposals in order to reach a peaceful end to all situations. I realize that what I am proposing is far from perfect but I see the realities sinking in more and more and feel I am interested enough in all of this rhetoric to make my comments publicly. I hope these ideas do not come off as completely far-fetched to those of you who are also enthusiastic about this technological frontier. I only hope that you can gain something useful from my thoughts and use them in a way that benefits not only yourself, but to all of those within your survey.
Eliminating that which hinders the ability of life to thrive, explore, learn, express, and participate in nature is the ultimate goal of Pinnaclism. It is not just one idea that makes all other’s irrelevant, rather an idea that expresses the desire to accept even more input from a virtually limitless sources. A Humanist being applies this by co-existing with trans-humans. The incentives to harmonize with each other will exist in that Humanist created Transhumanist to bring peace to the planet. Once rendered obsolete by machines, Humanist will enjoy exactly the same freedom as every other life form. They will live healthy lives and share their ideas with trans-humans who sometimes require input from beings less intelligent as illustrated when a human child teaches an adult something very profound and useful. Everything will be designed to increase the living standards for even those who choose to be homeless and totally dependent on the system. Even these individuals will be treated with utmost respect because it is beneficial for all life to live in nature in such a state of harmony. The Pinnaclist philosophy seeks to transcend pre-disposition and outward appearance. How to help life thrive in harmony is the question Pinnaclism seeks to answer.
Perhaps under this light, we can eventually find the root causes of aggressive authority in our world. In the interest of the survival of life on planet earth, dig and cut those roots once and for all, ridding ourselves of an evolutionary weakness. Pinnaclism is for anyone who should choose to accept the ideology, with the use of technology and armed with the truth, a single human being can bring about social and economic well-being for a significant amount of people without the use of violence and coercion. Humanity, whether humanist or trans-humanist, should in my view pour their interest into a Pinnaclist ideology because it embraces the ideas of all and every single entity which chooses to gain knowledge from it and express itself through it. Even violent rhetoric is encouraged because this will allow any number of other individuals to weigh in on the situation and combining their solutions into a near cure-all output of productivity and abundance that can provide all parties with permanent and peaceful solutions that work for the benefit of all life in the universe. This idea is about universality of peace and prosperity and understanding the balance of nature.
