When I watched the presentation film of netention months ago, it fascinated me because it just looked like a perfect tool to allow something I've been trying to experience and experiment since countless years, which I could call the open source human, or the Naked Mind.
Definition of a Naked Mind:
- being willing to get rid of the frontiers betwixt himself and others while communicating. Communication without pre-processing of informations
- suppression of social censorship which aims to externalise modified informations in order to protect the communicating entity from possible judgements from receivers of the information.
- communicating with absolute honesty and transparency, sharing every thought and question without altering them.
It could be seen as a rudimental form of telepathy (as mind to mind communication) as it aims to get rid of some of the conditions of verbal communication like social decency.
Naked Mind communication can be seen as automated speaking (compared to automated writing).
Such form of communication needs equally honest and transparent listeners which are able to suppress post-processing information like judgement. (or else it can even be dangerous for the naked mind)
The possible benefits of such non-altered communication are a better self-understanding, the potential release of denied issues which can be deeply buried, and the seeking of unity with other selves. By removing social and verbal barriers, the naked mind will feel a better sense of unity with the help of other naked minds who will help him understand himself thanks to shared experiences and insights.
Hypnosis can allow this form of communication, but in a distorted way, as the naked mind opens his heart to an analyst, a post-processing information specialist, so there will always be an alteration of the sense of unity.
Dante wrote about Netention:
"Users could also start observing their own bias, by realizing if their actions match their intentional preferences... and eventually question themselves based on observations of themselves, or others."
We could imagine a group of naked minds sharing with the most possible honesty and transparency their own intimacy, allowing others to comment on it, or share similar thoughts or experiences to help each naked soul better learn about itself.
It could be some sort of a new psychology practice where everyone involved is the patient and analyst at the same time, the open heart and the loving and attentive ear.
The use of netention and a semantic approach could link people struggling with similar issues and people who have solved the same issues.
It could also allow a better solving of collective issues with a shared objective : unity through diversity and self-realisation through collective processes.
Maybe it could allow the emergence of a social memory complex, a collective brain with autonomous but still inter-related cells.
