our personal level of autonomy equates to our capacity to invest and enrich qualitative values, that we share commonly.

The 'capacity' to be one’s own person - define reasons and motives.

Autonomy of people is key, to ensure a society that is progressive and independent. Central to this motivation -  is a transition to autonomous states and economies. While doing so, we move away from the previous paradigms of an hyper-competitive market and an exploitation based economy. This section features several models of autonomy, emerging ideas to challenge centralize markets and rule as well as conflicts which we may learn to navigate through. We are integrating this page with new resources for you as an individual and for communities.


Keywords - Numeric, Physical and Human
Values attached to wealth are numeric and can be exponential (+ or -). Physical value of things like property, infrastructure, vehicles, machines, personal belongings etc does not remain constant over time. Human (qualitative) values include friendship, love, well-being, diversity, spirituality, duty, beauty and justice. These three value systems do not sync with each other. Thus, a conflict occurs when we try to quantify (measure) wealth with happiness, income with well-being or material assets with quality (and security) of life. Systems in nature are not numeric or exponential. As a rule, material assets devalue over time. Because nothing in nature is limitless, the numeric and physical value systems which we live by, are clearly at odds with human values and the finite planet. Hence our personal level of autonomy equates to our capacity to invest, foster and enrich qualitative values, that we share commonly.




Challenges most visible in the NFT market are of uncertainty - in terms of value and sustainability.  The emerging markets and proliferation of NFT using Blockchain has created a windfall  and 'gold rush' globally. The technology promises vast opportunities yet not without the risks and instability involved.


"Put most simply, to be autonomous is to govern oneself, to be directed by considerations, desires, conditions, and characteristics that are not simply imposed externally upon one, but are part of what can somehow be considered one’s authentic self..." Stanford University Encyclopedia


From conception to public availability, technology must be in the service of the people and communities who use it and are impacted by it. Example - Freedom from mass surveillance, data gathering, social media tracking and fake news. Information technology without transparency is anti democratic.
