The Light Net is a new breed of search engine.
It is a hand-built database that uses categories and statistics to invite thought leaders, companies and individuals to map the landscape of our evolutionary leap into higher consciousness and health.
The system is an open data commons, data visualization and science platform which can help us keep up with exponential change and massive health innovations in real time.
Open Data Commons
Citizen Driven Science
The underlying system architecture allows for user accounts and can take in data natively or from external apps, websites, and surveys. It can then process the data in Elasticsearch and display it in maps and interactive charts. The beauty of the system is that it can aggregate, attribute and filter data from multiple sources to provide powerful collective intelligence. Filters can also scale all the way down to a single user’s private personal journey.
The system is designed to map and rank our best resources so that we can become highly efficient and self organize at scale. When a user adds a resource they are saving it to an easy-to-share personal library. Other users can adopt those resources and see which ones filter to the top as a group. Groups can isolate views of their data or combine it with other groups.
The platform supports small groups and data collection. This guides us to what methodologies are working best and lead us down to the detailed resources in the living library.
