Introduction to PhOENIX Theory

PhOENIX: The Physics Of Entanglements Networks and Information eXchanges is based on topology and combinatorics whereby all the known “particles” in physics can be represented as information which has been spatially entangled onto networks of vertices.

According to E=mc2, mass is nothing more than entangled energy. With PhOENIX, we have decoded how that energy becomes entangled, how it forms particles, and how those particles interact according to simple rules, using Graph Theory. A graph with n vertices is represented by an nxn matrix, called a coordinate matrix.


WOW!  not a believer yet though. But a fun idea.

I have been generally fearful of the future, have expressed my views on Jeff Besos, but occasionally I read something that gives me hope. 

https://inews.co.uk/essentials/news/technology/nick-clegg-ai-can-enhance-world-not-destroy/

for those who do not know Nick Clegg, he was once half of a prime minister in the UK.  It was a disaster for him, and he has been constantly ridiculed ever since.  He must be thick skinned, because he is still about.

Sometimes he can talk complete sense. This I find quite up lifting, as he is right, it does not have to end in doom and gloom.

Mmm ok.  Most of the responses seem to be from people selling further alternatives...

I guess the answer is its cheap, so dont expect full deliverability, and it will occasionally break.  Worth a try perhaps

Amazon has built a model that allows small businesses to piggyback on their success,
 

You make it sound like Amazon intend it that way, and I am not convinced they do. I think the only reason they have merchants is to learn the best corners thwey can fill.  Others pay the cost of failure, they reap the rewards from learning what works.

Yes I take your point, they do offer some opportunity, but in the overall picture  I have no doubt in my mind they take from society.  The do not pay enough tax for example to support the society the benefit from.
