What, How, Why?

This website teaches a method for processing information about relative positions on opposite sides of distinctions symmetrically, without privileging one side of a relationship over another. It is useful in decision making, dispute resolution, voting and as an alternative to money in controlling the exchange (trade) and redistribution (taxation) of goods and services. It can be expressed in mathematics constructed using symbols (1, 0: -i, +i, -j, +j, -k, +k) whose meanings oscillate between the relative positions, unlike conventional mathematics which is constructed using symbols (1, 0: -1, 0, +1) whose meanings are absolute. A core objective is to stimulate debate about our collective belief in one absolute meaning for nothing (zero) – the distinction between two objects that are the same – and its impact on the development of inequality through privileging one side of a relationship over another.
