We are a small private foundation and a task force that creates or supports initiatives and projects that can potentially change the world at the large scale by means of technology and drastic innovations.
Minimum Necessary Change
How do we plan to achieve such an ambitious goal? By employing the “minimum necessary change” principle. The principle comes from Isaac Asimov’s The End of Eternity story and basically says that even the most global changes can be traced back to the very tiniest of things, and small changes made by common humans can change the course of history.
Applied Chaos and Nonlinearity
Being described in science fiction the principle is in fact deeply grounded in real science. According to complexity science there are times when the behaviour and the future of complex systems (like our civilization) depends on tiny changes in parameters. You probably have heard of the Butterfly effect – another popular description of the same idea.
Historical Evidence for the Principle
There are a lot of historical illustrations for the principle. How our world would look like if Euclid hadn’t wrote Elements? Would we have made such a technological progress if Einstein had not come to his relativity principles or Schrodinger had not made his works? Furthermore, can you imagine what modern innovations like Bitcoin, Blockchain, Ethereum could make for the future of the world and our society? These are the examples of “minimum necessary change” principle in practice.
