Some of the Philosophy behind CPrize.
Creativity might make cents or sense, or may come from something sensed, and in the end may CPrize or surprize us. CPrize is designed to be a public response mechanism for the world’s problems. It also allows each of us to ‘put our money where our mouth is’ via www.buyorsell.it. CPrize aims to help provide preemptive answers or incentives to problems. It provides a version of the X-Prize where you have a say in the prizes, and challenge requirements. No end to our creativity exists if we heed the Source of our dreams and visions. That Help is progressive, life supporting and future oriented. CPrize rewards people who ‘followed their dreams’, to create and solve. Humanity gains by their creative efforts in applying what their dreams have guided them to do. Einstein, Edison and Edgar Cayce are great examples, plus many others who identify their use of dreams or visioning for creative ends. They are legion.
CPrize is where creative people design challenges that affect our future, and for everyone else who visits to express their approval for any given project, they can donate, or contribute towards the prizes, from voting how much the prize should be to making constructive comments on how parts might be improved. Onlookers can see in it real public input, aimed at practical solutions, ones which will not pinion society on less considered plans, that line the pockets of a few and produces little or no results. Most can see a huge benefit to a constructive input method that enables humanity to move forward faster on our collective creativity.
CPrize provides a people’s forum for awards to those who do great things for humanity, rather like the Nobel Prize does for intellectual giants who have done great things. So we have a goal: improving humanity in general, our standard of living, leveling the playing field, life itself, health, maybe even finding ways to stop wars and regional conflicts. The key to making it possible is to take problems we see that cause the loss of life, or diminution of our quality of life (like health and environmental problems) and put the problem into words. By identifying a problem we can turn them into challenges with practical, tangible solutions. Challenges entail new technologies some of the time, however we expect less than half of them will. Yet a few challenges may entail legal interventions or legislations to make the world a better, safer place, but as always communication, input information and funding are crucial to solving any of the problems.
