      @skalil I must say, you bring up very valid points, making this discussion a true delight. There’s a vast depth of unknowns to delve into and navigate. If I may, I’d like to respond to your earlier post before addressing your most recent one.

      You first query pertained to hardware and software. From what I have read on, some aspects of the project remain undisclosed for now. But we can speculate. Perhaps we will be utilizing GPT4all, given that it encompasses all the features the community values. Alternatively, we might witness the rollout of something entirely new that hasn’t been unveiled yet. I’m uncertain about the development on that front. If we base out work on existing solutions, we are likely to lean towards something like a GPT4all. It’s open source, free, localized, operable on a private network without the need for cloud or wifi connections, and offers the capability to train your own model. Here is the link to explore it:

      As you can observe, a high-end GPU isn’t mandatory for a GPT4all setup. A direct excerpt from their site reads, “GPT4all is an ecosystem to train and deploy powerful and customized large language models that run locally on consumer grade CPUs.” However, what’s not explicitly mentioned on their site are the RAM requirements. It becomes evident in order to operate the more robust models, you will ideally require more than 16GB of RAM. At some point in time you will probably be able to run any number of LLMs on something as small as a Raspberyy Pi. As it stands today if you were to make your own LLM you’d need multiple top of the line GPUs, a damn good CPU, maxed out RAM, quality and sufficient power, and way too cool everything. As for the operating system running everything, my gut says Linus is going to be the best choice for alignment with the project. I personally am a Windows user and I can confidently say it is an extremely invasive OS when it comes to privacy and data. Lets say you do make you computer finally. There are also ways to keep a computer that has zero internet access updated and perfectly functional. Simply having a sacrificial spare computer that is connected to an ISP would serve as your middle man to update your offline computer. Using a thumb drive to transfer files, driver updates, and program updates as needed. I would think anyway… what do I know haha

      To your second query: It seems these models will grow to be multifaceted just like we are filling in multiple knowledge gaps and illuminating multiple blind spots for their users.

      To your final query: I’ll refer to the Save Wisdom excerpt I found on the website, “This can be done with the Whisper API and some versions of it. The resulting text from this conversion can be used to build a local private AI model of your insights and ideas derived from these 1000 questions. We will explore the step-by-step options to build this in forthcoming articles.”

      Now to your Newer queries!

      This may or may not help but here is what a high-level workflow would look like if one was to process and implement their data into an LLM.

      Recording Phase:

      • Set up the environment.
      • Use quality equipment.
      • Make regular recordings.

      Transcription Phase:

      • Convert voice to text using speech-to-text tools (.txt file type)
      • Manually review and correct transcriptions.

      Data Organization & Storage:

      • Organize transcriptions (e.g., by data or theme).
      • Store securely with backups insuring its not on online network or cloud.

      Data Preprocessing:

      • Combine text files.
      • Tokenize and preprocess text (stopwords, stemming).
      • Vectorize text (TF-IDF, Word2Vec, etc.)

      Training Dataset Preparation:

      • Format data (e.g., CSV).
      • Split data into training and test sets.

      Model Training:

      • Choose a machine learning framework.
      • Select a model.
      • Train the model on the training set.
      • Evaluate model on the test set.
      • Iterate as needed.

      Deployment (optional)

      • Save the trained Model.
      • Choose a deployment method.
      • Deploy and use the model for predictions or wisdom keeping.

      Analysis & Feedback (optional)

      • Analyze model predictions or insights.
      • Adjust data collection or model based on findings.

      In reality, we are in the initial stage, and as a community, we look to the future with hopes of understanding. To gain a deeper understanding, perhaps we should first delve into our past and present selves to truly grasp the initial step. In this context, the first step refers to the recording phase or data collection phase. Everything subsequent hinges on our capacity to articulate our inner wisdom the best we can. Theoretically, we are collectively enhancing one another’s experiences and wisdom right here right now!

      I’d like to point out that the subjectivity of wisdom is a culmination of all out life’s experiences and our current feelings about them. This is influenced by countless factors. However, although not necessarily applicable in the context to your question, it may still be worth noting that one probably shouldn’t compare wisdom in a competitive sense, like suggesting one’s wisdom is superior to another. EVERYONES WISDOM HAS VALUE and not in the corny sense. There is fundamental and universal truth to that. Nor should it be weighed against an individuals idealized notion of perfection. Choosing to view wisdom from an aesthetic angle, on could adopt the Wabi-Sabi perspective. Fundamentally, wabi-sabi acknowledges thee realities of the universe: nothing is perfect, nothing is permanent, and nothing is ever truly complete. I find immense motivation and peace in this concept, especially in the realm of ceramics! I me some ceramics!

      You’re right in suggesting that wisdom is intricate and multifaceted. Technology might currently fall short in capturing its full essence. However, consider the myriad of tools at humanity’s disposal to convey wisdom. It’s about employing our available resources, even if they don’t perfectly capture every detail. Over time, we make progress, and that’s how we evolve. Each stride forward marks a victory in finding diverse means to share our insights.

      Your last question is my favorite because you it leans on some cutting edge technology that is wildly fascinating. I’ll admit I only recently came across this technology from listening to a podcast, and forgive my knowledge gaps in this topic but, Maybe you have heard this like me in an interview or two of @brian. He discussed data storage on silica or crystals. I believe he referred to it as 5D optical data storage or Holographic data storage. Anyway this stuff already exists, but isn’t quite consumer grade yet. These devices can store multiple entire life times of data on a single crystal the size of a quarter. They would effectively be personal properties. The concept of a ‘Living WILL’ sounds perfectly fitting to your point. One could potentially encrypt the data (although once technology gets to a certain point encrypting anything will be worthless), storing the crystal in a secure cault or trusted bank, passing it from one generation to the next, treating it like any other treasured possession.


      I appreciate the thought-provoking questions you posed. It was a pleasure thinking about your questions. Thank you for sharing!

        As mentioned before this is a visual form of what the community created module system could look like with the questions pertaining to them inside. The questions within can also be expanded upon by the community as well. This is just a very quick illustration of what that might look like.Essentially going from what could potentially be a list of 5,000 questions to something more organized and confined. But maybe the beauty is in the simplicity of a list. Im completely open to all and any ideas. Feel free to rip into this!

          The time stamp aspect is interesting. I would think the more information you can provide the better always, especially for context. But also in this particular case the community is encouraged to record their voices and then use software to break it down into text. So again time stamps would be your responsibility to verbally say as you’re answering questions in current time or referencing time in past events. One of my knowledge gaps is how the text is oriented so you can train your model. Im assuming their is a format to filter out noisy text from good text and then its probably divided into chunks of data thats used to train the model. I don’t think you would train your model on everything all at once. Again I need to educate myself on that front as I don’t know what I’m talking about.

          To your second question I feel and again this is just my feelings. I think that you are on the right track to introspection. You’re slowly illuminating the great unknown and noticing other complexities that arise with newer and newer information. I have a rule for myself that works for me. I’m not so sure how well it works for others. Nonetheless I do tend to overthink to the point I become embedded in my own thoughts and forget to participate and or apply my thinking into this physical world (aka express them and then create product of my thoughts). So I kinda apply a modified 80/20 rule to my everyday so there is balance. I’ll spend about 30% of my time in quality inner reality. Here I can run theoretical thought experiments, have fantasies, meditate, focus on my job/work, astro project, and or whatever else you can do in your mind. Then 70% of my time I try to test what happens inside my head against and with this physical reality helping me create contrast of self and and my world model. Compare and contrast. Whatever reality means anyway. But it helps me with my other saying. When I do inner work I go in and do quality work and then I get the F##@ out. “Get in and get out.” For me personally If I spend too much time in my mental state I become unproductive and or overthink everything. And I love mental work and exploration I really do and I get lost in it. But application is also so beautiful. When exploring the unknown you go through a lot and so you need to come back out of that to reflect and process. Its a relationship of knowing your limits and your ability. The entire process is you learning so much about yourself and the world around you that you’re achieving levels of depth that only you could go to and you’ll gain knowledge particular to your existence that could potentially help others because of all the work you have done. Another thing to help with clarity in complexity is talking with others and having the ability to bounce off of other peoples perspectives. That helps me a lot so I can assure I’m testing my thinking with other differing opinions which then helps stress test your world model with other world model.

          So perhaps if you tend to notice complexity arise when you are engaging with introspection you could find methods to simplify all these questions that surface inside of your thinking. You could write down everything and practice applying your thoughts to paper. It adds a metaphysical component to your discovery. Then you can dive into these writings even more and vocalize them into your voice recorder. Again your brain will naturally present goals and ambitions and then naturally with paths there will be obstructions and obstacles to solve. Just know that if you have set a goal or you have a vague idea of something you want that over time your going to run into obstacles because the brain will start noticing things that dont fit into the goal model you created. And the beauty of being human is we are good at identifying and finding solutions to obstacles and problems.  Id say you have a great ability to self reflect and express what you are experiencing and that is a really good position to be in. Everything else will come naturally as you keep discovering. Your tool belt is growing. Your most accurate model will be there no matter how you choose to answer the questions. The fact that you have inner battles means you’re human and your on the right track. Lastly in your original question where you expressed being honest with your answering you presented questions that are particular to your own situation. You could always write those as questions and then try answering them as if someone else posed them to you. It’s not about having the right answer. Wisdom is not necessarily ultimate fact truth but an  refined experience you can form as a principle you can apply to situations that arise minimizing negative risks to certain outcomes you wish to achieve. For instance if you find a tiny shred of a solution to your own problems and obstacle then you have gained wisdom that you can make a principle in your life to revert back to any time you need it. And that shred of wisdom doesn’t stop with you. You now have the ability to merge with others and help them by letting them in on your inner experience (wisdom). It’s really not about right or wrong. ANyway I’m driving myself crazy typing and not actually working at my job haha. Stealing company time!!!


          Thanks for being vulnerable and sharing your experience. I can relate to some of your questions forsure. Also check out what  @markrubin posted above. Thats some really in-depth work he linked and I really enjoyed reading it.

            @t-vargeletis & @jtkolarik

            I agree with T.vargeletis in that there is no time like now. As you gain more experiences in life your perspectives and values may change but your wisdom is still growing to new depths. So revisiting these questions throughout your life will only enrich your AI more along with your own personal understanding. It will also help your AI see patterns emerge as you add more and more of your wisdom into it. Thus helping you to see potential blind spots you may never have noticed otherwise. As for when and which state you should be in I would think that is entirely up to you and what your goals are.  I’d focus on being in a safe calm environment and just try one or two questions at a time and see how you feel with different methods you are implementing to delve deeper into yourself.  Apply what makes you feel most comfortable and able to explore your inner depths. I’m sure @brian has suggestions. You can always research techniques used by therapist, physiologist, spiritual healers, meditation experts, and so on. As this is a lot about memory recall and trying to extract information from your conscious and unconscious self you can probably search for memory recall techniques online or use an LLM to assist in your research. I enjoy reading Carl Jungs work and he would express the importance of solitude for introspection. He would use word association tests, dream analysis, active imagination, amplification, art and creativity, and more. The limits are endless and you can get as weird with it as you please. But remember this is all highly sensitive and personal information so keep it safe and out of the hands of bad actors.

            I’m also no expert and as the save wisdom website says you can always use professional help if things surfacing and it becomes overwhelming. Hope this helped.

              Also to clarify. It now in my own mind seems too complex to categorize each question into one of the six primary emotions listed above. The single-tier system I think is very useful. The Emotion Hierarchy on the other hand could easily be interchangeable with simpler concepts such as:

              • a “Tri-Tonal Question Mood Scale”: A system that categorizes the mood of a question as “happy,” “neutral,” or “sad”.

              This would be a lot simpler. For example if a community member decided to contribute a module and didn’t know which mood their questions fell under they could simply prompt Chat GPT to assign a mood too it based off of the explained Tri-Tonal Question Mood scale description.

              You could probably do the same with the Emotional Hierarchy system too.

              Such a prompt may look like:

              • Prompt: I have a hierarchy system of emotions. The list of  emotions are as follows:  joy, sadness, anger, fear, surprise, and disgust. Under which emotion would a question like “What are the earliest smells you can recall from childhood?”
              • Actual response from Chat GPT:“The question “What are the earliest smells you can recall from childhood?” is largely neutral and does not inherently evoke any of the emotions listed: joy, sadness, anger, fear, surprise, or disgust. However, depending on an individual’s personal experiences, their answer could be associated with any of these emotions.

              For instance:

              • Joy: If someone recalls the smell of their grandmother’s cookies.
              • Sadness: If the smell reminds them of a lost loved one.
              • Anger: If the smell is tied to a traumatic event.
              • Fear: If the smell reminds them of a time they felt scared.
              • Surprise: A smell associated with an unexpected event.
              • Disgust: A particular scent they found repulsive.

              That said, the question itself is neutral and open-ended, allowing for a range of emotional responses based on the individual’s memories. If you had to categorize it under one of these emotions, “surprise” might be the closest fit because it’s about recollection and discovery, but that’s a bit of a stretch.”

              My initial idea may still need work because the more I test that aspect of the framework the more I realize it might not be a suitable fit for this application.

              The main goal of the Emotional Hierarchy aspect was to avoid distraction by questions of differing emotional tones, which could potentially detract from an individuals introspective depth in a given module.

              Anyway I’m at the point of overthinking and I probably need sleep! Ciao for now!

                Potential Framework for the Save Wisdom Project

                ***I feel obligated to say that I did use ChatGPT to help me structure these ideas and to make sure my grammar was suitable for the likes of this beautiful community.***

                Embark on your Wisdom-keeping journey by selecting from a rich array of thematic modules, each brimming with questions crafted by our remarkable community. Each module offers a distinct context, designed to delve deep into realms both within and beyond ourselves. Whether navigating early memories or pondering past relationships, your chosen module defines the overarching theme. Exploring all modules not only amplifies your contributions to your private, localized AI but also fosters profound self-awareness.

                Upon module selection, you’re introduced to the single-tier emotional hierarchy system. Here, you’ll undertake a self-assessment of your current mental and emotional state. This prompts you to choose from a clearly listed hierarchy of six primary emotions, setting the tone for the subsequent questions. For instance, if “joy” aligns with your current state, you’ll be presented with community-curated questions in that vein. Given the system’s hierarchical nature, selecting “joy” could also guide you to questions shaped by related emotions like nostalgia, relaxation, and love. A standout feature of this system is its flexibility: you aren’t restricted to your initial emotion choice. You’re encouraged to journey through all emotions within a module, gaining a holistic understanding of your experiences. The single-tier system acts as a beacon, ensuring you’re at ease answering personal questions that match your emotional landscape. At its core, this framework blends simplicity with depth, offering a tailored experience for those eager to embark on a journey of self-discovery, introspection, and tapping into their innate wisdom and intelligence.

                1. The Modular System:


                • Overview: Users embark on an introspective journey, guided by thematic modules that serve as navigational beacons. These modules draw inspiration from concepts like album art, or the main pages of platforms like ReadMultiplex.
                • Purpose: To provide a structured, thematic approach to introspection, allowing users to choose areas of self-exploration that resonate most with their current emotional or cognitive state.


                • Design: Each module is meticulously crafted, revolving around a unique theme or emotional state. They act as gateways, leading users into a deeper realm of introspection.
                • Interactivity: Users can choose to delve into one or multiple modules, depending on their preferences.


                • Community Created Modules: Such as:
                  -“Unlock Early Memories” – Dive deep into the recesses of childhood and rediscover forgotten moments that have shaped you.
                  -“Shadow Work” – Explore the less acknowledged parts of your psyche, understanding and integrating your darker self.
                  -“Relationship Dynamics” – Delve into past and present relationships, understanding dynamics, patterns, and personal growth areas.


                • Focused Exploration: Modules offer thematic lenses, guiding users into specific realms of introspection.
                • User-driven Exploration: The choice-based model empowers users, letting them dictate the pace and direction of their introspective journey.


                • Potential Choice Paralysis: The expansive array of module options might be overwhelming for some, leading to indecision.
                • Risk of Superficial Exploration: With a plethora of choices, some users might skim through modules without fully engaging or reflecting on the content.

                Future Considerations:

                • Module Expansion: As user feedback is collected, new modules can be added, ensuring the platform remains dynamic and responsive.
                • Tier Evolution: As the community grows and the project advances, the tier design can adapt and evolve in complexity.

                2. The Single-Tier Emotional Hierarchy within Modules

                Introduction: After selecting a thematic module, users move to the single-tier emotional hierarchy system. They start by assessing their current mood and state, and then choose from a list of six primary emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, Surprise, and Disgust. These emotions act as a compass, directing users to questions that resonate with their selected emotional tone.

                Design Philosophy: The emotional hierarchy is crafted to provide users with a scaffolded experience, starting with foundational primary emotions and then branching out to broader emotions that are intrinsically connected. For instance, under the primary emotion of Surprise, umbrella emotions such as Astonishment, Dismay, Bewilderment, and Perplexity are encompassed. Thus, questions selected under Surprise will echo the tones of all its encompassing umbrella emotions. The overarching intent is not just to prompt with questions but to kindle reflection on these varied emotional nuances.


                • Selection Mechanism: Users pinpoint the emotion that mirrors their current state or the one they wish to explore.
                • Hierarchical Exploration: Starting with a broad category, like ‘Fear’, the user might then dive into nuanced sub-emotions such as paranoia, anxiety, or apprehension.

                Rationale & Impact:

                • Deepened Exploration: Anchoring to a primary emotion provides users with a clear starting point, ensuring their journey remains focused without being distracted by questions of differing emotional tones, which could potentially detract from their introspective depth.
                • Flexible Journey: While they may begin with questions steered by their initial emotional selection, they can pivot and explore other primary emotions within the module. This ensures a rounded, comprehensive introspective experience along with a completed module.

                Inspiration Source:

                • Foundation on Research: The categorization leans on established psychological findings, drawing particularly from Dr. Paul Ekman’s work on primary emotions.

                User Experience:

                • Interactive Engagement: After module selection, users encounter an array of primary emotions. Their choice here will craft the subsequent line of questions, ensuring they resonate with their current state or desired exploration.

                Potential for Expansion:

                • Scalable Design: As the project and community mature, there’s room to add sub-emotions or even introduce secondary emotional tiers, further enhancing the depth and richness of the introspective journey.

                Closing Thoughts:
                The goal is to align the Save Wisdom mission with a framework that encourages others to contribute their insightful questions. By combining modular selection with single-tier emotional exploration, we aim to curate a rich, structured experience. This tiered approach offers scalability; its potential is boundless. Yet, it can evolve organically as the community embarks on this fresh journey of wisdom preservation. I sincerely welcome frank feedback and criticism. Feel free to deconstruct this concept, infuse it with your unique perspectives, and introduce even more innovative ideas. I genuinely believe that the most remarkable insights will come from collaborative efforts. My hope is that my enthusiasm doesn’t appear as overreach or excessive involvement. I’m genuinely thrilled about the advancements on this platform, and I find myself brimming with ideas and the desire to collaborate. I’ve endeavored to present these thoughts as clearly and succinctly as possible. Should you require additional context or explanations, please don’t hesitate to inquire.

                  I’m not sure the exact format or method the Save Wisdom Project would like to achieve with the questions. All I can say is my mind sees it as series of modules. You can visit any module you feel inspired to work through. Each module has a title and a series of questions designed to achieve a level of inner work in specific areas of yourself. Once done you can move through the rest of the titled modules as you please.

                  For instance I call this one “Unlock Early Memories

                  The motive of this module is to encourage individuals to deep dive into their earliest memories.

                  Sensory Triggers
                  1 What are the earliest smells you can recall from childhood?
                  2 Do any specific sounds or songs transport you back to your younger days?
                  3 Can you remember the taste of a childhood favorite treat?
                  4 Are there textures, like the touch of a certain fabric, that remind you of early years?
                  5 Can you visualize any vibrant colors or objects from your childhood surroundings?
                  6 Did any particular music or radio shows play often in your childhood home?
                  7 Were there tactile sensations, like sand, water, or grass, that you remember distinctly?
                  8 Can you recall the feeling of being held or hugged?
                  9 Do certain weather conditions, like rain or wind, evoke specific memories?
                  10 Can you recall the scent of any particular perfumes or colognes worn by family members?
                  11 Were there specific foods or dishes whose aroma instantly transports you back?

                  Places and Spaces
                  12 What’s the layout of the first home you remember?
                  13 Were there nearby landmarks, like a tree or store, you recall?
                  14 Can you describe any parks, playgrounds, or outdoor spaces you frequented?
                  15 Were there hidden or secret spots where you felt particularly safe or excited?
                  16 How did your childhood home change with the seasons?
                  17 Were there specific rooms or areas you were not allowed to go, or that were mysterious to you?
                  18 Can you recall any family trips or vacations?
                  19 What did your neighborhood or street look like?
                  20 Were there places you were told to avoid, like a specific room or a neighbor’s yard?

                  People and Relationships
                  21 Who were your neighbors during your early years?
                  22 Do you remember any visits from relatives or family friends?
                  23 Can you recall early interactions with siblings, if you have any?
                  24 Were there adults, other than caregivers, who left an impression?
                  25 Were there family friends you looked forward to seeing?
                  26 Can you remember any babysitters or caretakers?
