Massive Direct Democracy - another take on representative democracy

A political science professor will tell you that direct democracy was possible in Ancient Athens most likely because of their small number (2000 or so participants). Nowadays we live in multi-million citizen countries (also multi-billion), making direct democracy unfeasible. It's hard to "listen" to that many people.
However, our technologies allow for the following - we can easily have anyone vote through connected electronic voting polls. Furthermore, in this day and age it is rather simple to gather citizen's opinion through all sorts of interfaces - mobile phones and computers being at the forefront. Our ability to analyze data - and more importantly written text - and assign some sort of meaning to it is remarkable, and better yet bound to become more sophisticated. This can be used to an advantage in the following way:
1-Set up interfaces (or terminals) where properly identified citizens can express their opinions for change, and concerns. Data entry can by type or voice. 
2-Analyze each entry for content. 
3-Cluster entries by content.
4-Create framework where most prominent concerns are brought to the political representative, who will then proposed a policy to solve the issue.
5-Have citizens vote on the proposal through interfaces.


His lover gave him a written thought...
She has found the one
With whom to share her last breath
But he, made wise by time and pain
Saw that he’s been given that thought thrice
The first dissolved when he chose to go there
And left
The second, because he was not of the people there
And was left
And now the third is on its way to melting
In the flow of time
His destiny commanding
That he shall leave

Never to go back there

When the hand misses the touch

On Epistemology

While the dilemma of defining what constitutes true knowledge will be endlessly debated, I would like to present a simple thought on the acquisition of such knowledge. 

Acquiring knowledge is the conversion of empirical information into a perfect a priori form.

By perfect a priori form I intend to say that it can be re-formulated, and arrived to, without relying on any empirical information. In this scenario we can explain any part of reality by relying on concepts describing the building blocks of reality, and considering the logical (unambiguous) consequences of these concepts at the scale of inquiry (i.e. hierarchical position of subject). 

The meaning of Existence

Thinkers have endlessly pondered about what it means to exist. One only needs a quick search on the Internet to find summaries of leading thoughts on the issue.

I would like to present my take:

To exist is to exert an effect.
