I (Jack Don McLovin, the Creator) am also an active scientist and wrote a research paper on the concept of this platform before building it. So here it is.
Ascent-Incentivised Linguistic Database, with the capability for Attention-Span-Optimised Sorting and Tradeable-Mood-Preconditioning
Goal: The database is being built along the model of Social Media platforms, for the sake of the designer who has become bored with the perspective of how ordinary platforms operate, and it combines with a Secret-Services-Security-Intelligence Database model, as well as being crucially important for the continuation of the designers understanding of mapping out their own dreamscape.
This is a project that the designer would use on their own, even if no one else was using it. Although, it is no stretch of the code to manage the system for many users.
It is both a way of conferring the knowledge acquired in Psychedelic / Dream / Psychotic experiences to others, as well as improving a person's understanding of symbolism and why what they say may not be perceived in the way they intended it.
Theoretically, it should function as a technique for habituating consciousness to speak on behalf of each other only for that which one knows is worth speaking about, and, to habituate consciousness to recognise greater and greater insight with less and less effort. The system scales with any idea of the "singularity" or "exponential growth".
Archaic historical accounts suggest that such an idea may result in blurring the boundaries between cultures, religions, and languages, or set up very hard-and-fast boundaries between them, or both, or some mix between. Different for different.
Early on, it may appear confusing, frustrating, and chock-full of ulterior motives. However, the designer sees it as the only way to ensure that the user (himself) can proceed in both a deeper understanding of the natural world and the other people in it.
The trick to the ascent-incentivisation is that when you buy/subscribe (or for free) a dictionary off of another user, you then get access to the ads that have been supplied by others with that same access. This allows you to earn specific revenue for posting/commenting/voting based on what dictionary you are using.
This extends further into that dictionaries can be built to have pre-requisite dictionaries. Thus when you are finished with the first dictionary, or have earnt enough from the first dictionary, you can then afford to buy the next dictionary, and then get access to a deeper layers of ads, likely with a higher pay rate. People in Marketing often talk about "funnels", but this is extended to whatever depth you would like. So if you find your first dictionary has gotten popular (which you may even offer for free), then you can start working on the next layer in, and so on as your popularity grows, providing deeper analysis, or, in particular, deeper code words, or even, the same words you used before, but with different definitions, meanings, interpretations, etc.
Now, words are automatically dynamically hyperlinked in posts with less than 280 characters(similar to some addons for WordPress or a standard Wikipedia article) and each hyperlinked word is given a dropdown with the associated definition for the word appearing along with an ad, whereby the advertiser is forced to be transparent on what definitions they support, and what keywords they want you to use thus we can de-in-bed the language in use and the corporations corrupt motives.
One reason for forcing words to show their definitions is that at different times the same person can say the same word to mean many different things. And while, as a scientist in many different fields, this is very apparent and clear to me that everyone does this with or without realising it, it is an apt time (NOW) to start displaying that in the process of actuation.
Why this platform and not others? Well, don't you want control of your own language? You don't have to create it for yourself, but you can now choose what your words mean and how to use them, and to join the communities that follow your path. Academia is highly corrupt. They are ruled by a curriculum, their science is bought and paid for with ulterior motives. NDA's are signed and the public never knows the true reasons behind what a company does. I don't employ anyone so there are no NDA's, which means I am the sole point-of-fault for transparency, honesty, and truthfulness. So it is up to the public, the users, the creators, and the advertisers, to keep me in check.
Defining your terms is about as much as defining as it is about being definite, dealing with strict logical outcomes.
Post content is marked "|safe" thus you can use classic HTML (a href and img) to put links to words in-text, allowing the same word to have different definitions, and different words to have the same definition. This is useful in the case that you have multiple definitions for the same word. Or multiple words with the same definition. This is good for when you want to talk about technicalities amongst many different dictionaries.
Sponsor a word to support it's definition and the max of all the word sponsors displays on the dictionary preview. Spaces can be bought and sold, so for a historical curation sell for a fee, for a continuous curation sell as a subscription.
Editors of The American Heritage Dictionaries - The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language-Houghton Mifflin (1994)
Computers—machines that some of us still think of as fast number crunch- ers—can encode, manipulate, process, and in a limited way understand language only because of the remarkable properties of natural language systems as they have evolved through a long history. In its essence, language is a hierarchically organized structure of symbols, which allows us to express a potentially infinite number of ideas through finite means. The basic building blocks of this system are very few: a set of contrastive sounds—the phonemes of the language—that we can represent by letters and letter combinations in our alphabetical writing systems. These elementary building blocks are combined in highly restricted ways into the basic meaningful units, the words of the language. These words, again in accordance with systematic combinatory principles, form meaningful sequences of syntactically well-formed sentences. The entire system thus consists of combining a finite inven- tory of discrete units into a potentially infinite set of discourses, just as the ten numerals of our number system can be combined into an infinite set of different mathematical values and expressions.
This analogous organization of language and numeric systems makes it easily possible to represent linguistic units by numbers and to manipulate them as if they were mathematical objects. Having a computer find a misspelled word in our doc- ument is not magic: if the machine has a lexicon available, with words coded as numbers, it can compare the numeric code of the word we write with the numerical value of the word in its word list through a simple arithmetical operation. If no match is found, our word is not in the computer’s lexicon, and we have a good can- didate for a misspelling.
EFFICIENCY AND REDUNDANCY
But languages—as they have evolved spontaneously in communities over the ages—possess much more complex mathematical properties than those resulting from a hierarchical structure of discrete units. Languages exhibit both efficiency and redundancy, two contradictory characteristics balanced against each other to achieve both a communicational usefulness and reliability.
Consider redundancy first: of the 33 or so phonemes of English, only a small subset of their possible permutations can form actual words. Adult English speakers know, for example, that trip is an English word. But they also know that tlip is not an English word and do not have to go to a dictionary to discover that fact. Intuition tells them that no English word can begin with tl-. But when faced with trin, English speakers—though not recognizing the word—may have to seek help in a dictionary. The form trin is at least theoretically a possible English word because it does not vio- late any of the general constraints on permissible sequences of English sounds.
Of course, the constraints on the permissible sequences of sounds that are used to achieve this redundancy may differ substantially from language to language; there are many languages, for example, in which a word can begin with the initial tl- cluster prohibited in English. The same is true on higher levels. English—a config- urational language that relies on word order to signal many grammatical func- tions—imposes severe restrictions on possible sequences of words within a sentence. Languages with a “free” word order, such as Latin or Russian, allow seem- ingly endless permutations of words.
These permutations are possible because these languages have an elaborate system of inflected forms and paradigms in which a small set of endings is combined in highly restricted ways with the stems of the word to signal the syntactic relations that are achieved through word order in English.

If you use trickle, it sponsors all the words of the authors who have posted in a space made from the words in the sponsorship phrase that are in that sponsored word's author's total dictionaries. That is, if you stamp a phrase with trickle, it attaches to anyone who has given the user feedback, so it marks the whole crowd. And now that it's on a new author, the next trickle goes again, but it's on all of their words now.
If the token is ever declared a currency then this will be a deductible.
Each trickle costs 1000 tokens.
It's for network affects of mass advertising, or flash advertising. If your campaign wants instant feedback, use higher trickles, but any more than about 3 trickles is probably just going to reach everyone and dissipate in no time.
If you sponsor, you must obey the whole of advertising standards and regulation.
You may terminate these Terms at any time and for any reason by deleting your Account and discontinuing your use of all Services. If you stop using the Services without deactivating your Accounts, your Accounts may be deactivated due to prolonged inactivity.
We may suspend or terminate your Accounts, status as a moderator, or ability to access or use the Services at any time for any or no reason, including for a violation of these Terms or our Content Policy.
The following sections will survive any termination of these Terms or of your Accounts: 4 (Your Content), 6 (Things You Cannot Do), 10 (Indemnity), 11 (Disclaimers), 12 (Limitation of Liability), 13 (Governing Law and Venue), 16 (Termination), and 17 (Miscellaneous).
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding your access to and use of the Services.
