The engine that makes it all possible generates a unifying and empowerment energy on behalf of the membership. The excess energy it creates is stored.

Practical Magic
"Why not call it capital or money?"

"Two reasons that come to mind at the moment: 1) A limited subset that lacks robust flexibility 2) Those two words are lightning rods in effect. They reduce descriptive effectiveness in this context."

Out of the blue, he blurted out "Current rail efficiency combined with electric road delivery is how much more efficient than roads?"

She paused and then realized that what he had said was conceptually adjacent.  The electro-magnetic realm was far superior in many respects to chemical reactions for energy generation. Some 80 years ago rail transportation put in motion great design and attained efficiencies only dreamed of by any other technology, even today.

Perhaps the most useful of Tesla's inventions was alternating current.  As we now know, if is far easier to put alternating flows of electrons to efficient use. This is in part due to the ease to which the energy can be transformed to match the application (stepping the voltage up or down to match the task at hand.)

What we are now discovering empirically is that there is indeed a corollary in advancing collective cognition. Transformation of information flows to match how that information is 'put to work' is key to the explosion in useful applications of data.

Wired Identity suggests that just as alternating current was the enabling technology to put electricity to use for the common good, extension of individual identities will be the breakthrough for our generation's mastery of cognition for mutual benefit. The words to describe it may not be there yet but the trend says they will be soon.

NOTE: Some of the foregoing in this BuzzTheHill post is not fictional. Consider it a public disclosure and as such, to the degree something novel and not obvious to those skilled in the art has been addressed, the specific intent was/is to put it in the PUBLIC DOMAIN.
