The DailyTwinkles project forms an ambitious AURELIS subproject, reaching and connecting people in forty different languages.
The aim is to support people to connect in-depth. In accord with the AURELIS philosophy, people are invited to value a combination of rationality and depth – each without detracting from the other – across cultural borders, toward planetarianism.
DailyTwinkles will be sent in the most successful languages on the Internet. Together, the reach is +/- 80% of all Internet users through any means of computation.
Thus, many different cultures can be reached. Necessarily, this comprises cultures with sometimes mutually challenging ideas. The twinkling aim is to speak to the hearts and minds of people from these different backgrounds.
Bringing people together supra-culturally
Unfortunately, social media are used by many in ways that lead to anger, disgust, fear, shame, etc.
The DailyTwinkles project invites individuals to say – in their comments to Twinkles – in a profoundly friendly way what is attractive to all. People are encouraged to think before commenting.
For instance, imagine Japanese and Brazilians coalescing about the concept of ‘living in the here and now’ ― profoundly.
This way, we want to bring cultures together, being convinced that, in-depth, people from all over the world are recognizably the same. DailyTwinkles may become an instrument for unification.
This is a challenge.
Just hoping people will behave as intended is not enough for the challenge to succeed. We will be bound in our efforts within the social media accounts where, of course, we gratefully use their services and respect their business.
Therefore, the planned central hub for communication is the DailyTwinkles website in English or the source language of comments, then going back to the social media with human comments that may come from other languages. Some of our challenges in this regard are:
- to automatically find out which links go to unethical accounts and try to block many of these
- to put additional spam filters on comments and filter on inappropriate terms
- to use Lisa as a coach for inviting nice comments to be made even more interesting for all through direct communication with the commenter when possible. This might be an interesting application for others too.
Of course, from a to z and forever, anything that gets posted on social media will be human-made ― no robo-posting at all.
This will take some time to put into place. I can only say, we do what we can as quickly as possible.
