My situation appears to be unique. I have developed a method for using a computer program to help solve problems that are far beyond the capacity of unaided humans. I have used this program to propose how Congress could address some of the problems that have them in conflict.
But this method is unique. I am an emeritus professor who had developed an earlier problem solving method used in engineering that has been the subject of annual international conferences on DSM, the 16th in Paris last summer. (dsmweb.org)
I have been working on the logic to develop a more recent problem solving method, the Explainer, for nearly two decades. I have used it to solve problems where there is no evidence that anyone else has solved them. And these problems are important enough that they need to be solved.
But on the surface it looks preposterous. It requires someone to look below the surface to appreciate its power and applications.
I would like to see it made available on the web where people could collaborate to solve some of the problems that have created such world-wide chaos.
The program would be used by a small number of bright people who would use it to solve important but complex problems that would alleviate some of the problems that are causing society so much trouble.
When people cannot solve problems that cause them anguish, the problem solvers can gain respect from those hurt by the lack of seeing their problems solved rationally. So if no one else steps up to solve them, I will.
Problem solving conveys power to the problem solvers. If some of our bright citizens can solve the problems that vex Congress, they may wrestle some power away from the big moneyed interests.
When people cannot see the problems that affect them adversely being solved rationally, they become frustrated and irrational. And when they become frustrated and irrational, they create more problems they also cannot solve. This is a vicious cycle creating more chaos. The program I have developed will help to break these vicious cycles.
This violates most of the criteria that investors look for in a start-up. The number of users would be small, but very valuable. By charging by the number of uses collaborating to solve the problem times the period of time they use it, it would undoubtedly payoff 10 times the investment. But it would probably take more than 18 months to get that payoff.
Someone might accept the extended payoff time to see the social advantages. We will have to see.
