In a previous post, I introduced the idea for a universal multi-factor / multi-party / multi-agent authentication network, protocol, or standard that would increase safety and stability

Below, I'll discuss this more a bit


One idea that has strong support in economics, finance, and in philosophy is the idea that increased integration helps to ensure global stability - though markets and "destinies" are intertwined, in general interstate and intrastate conflict declines (e.g. "It sucks that the market tanked because of those guys over there but it sure as hell beats world war three")

Extracting that idea, I think it quite necessary to ensure that there are multiple authentication stages required for the execution of certain code, the operation of certain devices, or the use of certain lethal systems

This idea has been implemented for decades with respect to certain military systems but could be expanded to ensure compliance in nuclear engineering, certain kinds of financial operations (which is already increasingly the case with blockchain-based technologies), 3D printing (of weapons, for example), biotech, and so on


Such a system need not utilize existing blockchain services (or even future ones) but squares nicely with such technologies and future extensions of pre-existing services and tools


QANT - ubiQuitous Authentication Network Transparency protocol affectionately dubbed so in memory of Kant (both his very perfectionist moral philosophy as well as the notion of the Democratic Peace) and a facetious use of the word 'can't'

Such a protocol would lay the groundwork to ensure the effective implementation of the idea sketched out above

QANT squares nicely with advances in axiomatic law (which helps to ensure consistency and makes recommendations for legal improvements without displacing lawmakers who would have final say in whether the law becomes the law)

QANT further 'synergizes' / converges with / produces multiplicative / additive effects with a host of emerging technologies and innovations within several key industries and disciplines (philosophy, whether it has ever been a truly descriptive activity at all is poised to become a truly creative discipline in the strict sense of 'creative' meaning both new and practical a la ontological engineering, a branch of computer science)
