This post is part of the uffmm science blog and will introduce in the new possibility to use the oksimo software for theory development  and theory testing using only everyday language. More options are possible.


Sustainable Development is the thew ‘sound’ which plays through the air since 1987, when the Brundland Report [1] has been published. 1992 and many more times after 1987 The United Nations organized global conferences to deepen the idea, make it more public, make its scope broader, trying to influence the minds of the people.

But, as we can see everyday, the different countries, the different nations, regions and cities have still problems to enable societies which are thinking and living these ideas, these visions, in a way, which integrates alle people into one big ‘symphony’ of ideas and applications inspired by this: sustainable development.

At the heart of every change contributed by humans there have to be the ‘right ideas’ shedding light on the ‘right things to do’. But such ideas do not emerge ‘out of nothing’.  There must exist people around the globe which are actively ‘searching’ for the glimpses of a better world, which are actively ‘communicating’ with others, to compose the right ‘melodies’ in their heads, the right ‘tunes of tomorrow’, to enable ‘pieces of tomorrow’, to built up the ‘new earth’ as that ‘blue planet’ which makes the difference in our universe.

Ideally people would met each other at some place, arranging a social encounter, talking, laughing, eating and drinking, communicating directly, sharing ideas and visions, finding some possible grasps in the everyday world, and they would start acting.

But in real cities — and today hampered additionally by a pandemia distancing people to meet to intensively — it isn’t so easy: Who is who? Where are the right people?  Will they have some time ‘at the same time’? Can they come across many buildings, streets and blocks? Which places, rooms are appropriate to meet? How many can come? What is with the many which are hindert at that time for this place?

The everyday world’s principle of real space and time reveals intrinsic limits.

But luckily modern technology, the cyberspace, offers new opportunities …


Embedded in the real everyday world one can set up an ‘external point of reference’ visible for all participants of the cyberspace: a few people can set up an ‘initiative’ to develop and sharing ideas public in the cyberspace. But these ideas will be ‘grounded’ in the real world: Take the globe, select some country (even at random), select a region, a county, a city or town … start asking, searching, communicating, ‘thinking aloud’ and use the oksimo software for finding possible processes, finding complex pictures of the world, simulating at will, checking success automatically, transform the  reality of ‘Now’ into some advanced picture of a possible ‘tomorrow’. Have fun, make a sustainable development more probable.

As a ‘normal citizen’ you have not too much time and energy, to think about the future of your living, the future of your environment, the future of your work: you are ‘encapsulated’ in your everyday processes like a cage — in the worst case — or like an opportunity — in the best case –. To change it by your own seems to you possibly too difficult, even impossible.

But with this group there in the cyberspace ‘ideas can fly through the air’; ideas can ‘touch your mind’; ideas can ‘inspire’ your dreams, your thinking, inspire you to want to be ‘part of it’ and thereby making the flying ideas ‘more real’. The initiative will grow ‘by itself’…
