In human thought meaning is constructed in strings of ordered distinctions, like letters and sounds in a sentence, bases in DNA and 1s and 0s in computer code. The drawing of distinctions and construction of meaning is a chiral process. Although the two sides of a distinction appear as symmetric opposites, each being exclusively itself, not its complement, the chirality of the process breaks symmetry, conferring a hidden spin that privileges one side of a distinction over the other. Hence when human thought is being applied to code and process information about the two sides of an economic relationship between two humans, the same spin is being applied to both sides. This spin affects the performance of the coding, resulting in one side of the relationship being privileged over the other.

To test this hypothesis, a system has been created that codes and processes information about the two sides of a relationship in mirror opposite ways instead of in the same way. The system links the interests of people together without allowing one side of a relationship to be privileged over the other. It is called a chiralkine system. If the hypothesis is found to be correct, chiralkine systems could prove to be advantageous in the construction of new social systems, including social relationships between humans and robots.
