Ideation/Design

Description:

Ohmega (pronounced like ‘omega’) is a meditation and consciousness evolution social media application based on bringing people together through sound and shared physical space. Its purpose is to help visualize collective consciousness and encourage the practice of fractal thinking and synergistic collaboration.

The idea is simple: each internet-enabled device (smartphone, laptop, PC, etc.) with the Ohmega app acts as a microphone and GPS locator. When active, the Ohmega app listens for a resonant “ohm” chant from one or more meditators. The duration, time and location of the ohm are stored in a central database, allowing a web server to map and visualize the “ohms” on a global map over time. Here’s the exciting part: the calculated intensity (power) of each ohm is increased exponentially in proportion to the number, proximity and structure of ohms around it.  So two ohms 10 centimeters apart will be more powerful than five ohms spread over several meters. This encourages ohmers to come together to amplify their collective effect. In addition, ohms distributed in special structured crystalline patterns will also get multiplier effects, emphasizing the power of ordered design. Finally, all of the multiplier effects work on multiple fractal scales. So several small groups can synchronize to form synergistic effects over large geographic areas.

Users will be able to view the global map visualization and see how their ohms contribute to the global collective conscious grid. They will also be able to unlock various achievements based on ohm duration and cluster sizes and “events” they are a part of.

Algorithms:

The intensity of the whole system (and all subsystems) is based on the gravity equation F = G * (m1 * m2)  /r^2 :

P = (n1 * n2) / d^2

where P is the power/intensity, n1 and n2 are the number of subclusters in cluster 1 and 2 respectively, and d is the distance between them.

This value is calculated for every combination of two subclusters at each fractal level. The total number of combinations at each level is given by the combinatoric equation:

C = n! / 2! (n-2)!

 

Next steps:

  1. Further develop algorithm that works at different scales and balances challenge and achievement
  2. Research technologies for sound detection
  3. Develop prototype app with sound detection, location mapping and data visualization
  4. Experiment with trials and make improvements
  5. Release on app market
