The World Congress

I just said to my phone, "Ok Google. Remember that I want the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to have the force of supreme law for all of humanity."

Then I said, "Ok Google. What do I want?"

My phone replied, "I remember you told me you want the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to have the force of supreme law for all of humanity."

I think that what I need next is an app which might be called, "The World Congress." So, if I said to my digital assistant, "I want to say something to The World Congress," the digital assistant would say, "Please identify yourself."

Then I would speak my name, and possibly turn on the camera so the phone could see me, and possibly I would also respond to a number of prompts in order to satisfy The World Congress of my identity.

Once my identity had been established and authenticated, I would be able to tell The World Congress whatever I wanted to have entered as a matter of public record.  I could also specify whether this input was anonymous, or if my identity should be disclosed for public view along with my input . 

The World Congress app would be able to respond to queries such as: 

"For which positions is there the greatest unity?" 
"How many people support The Plan for worldwide demilitarization?"
"What is my position on The Plan for worldwide demilitarization?"

Imagine The World Congress app running on billions of phones and other devices.  Since the app would authenticate the identities of people before they provided their input, a single phone could be used by multiple people to participate in The World Congress.  How does that feel? 

I feel power, and strength, and my sense of myself expanding and becoming greater.  It feels good.

2018-04-29 Update - More than 90% of the processors in current smart phones are designed by Arm Holdings.  Arm has announced Project Trillium, the core component of which is a Machine Learning (ML) processor that operates at about 4.5 trillion operations per second (TOPS), and when the CPU and GPU components are included, I'm guessing that the total processing of next generation phones will be about 5 TOPS.  

A million people running the distributed, decentralized World Congress app by the end of 2019 on these next generation phones would have a total of 5 quintillion operations per second.  This would be faster than the fastest supercomputer in the world right now, or planned on being built by the end of 2019.  

So, one can only imagine the total processing capabilities from billions of people who are equipped with these next generation phones.
