Welcome to the prototype for the aiki atheneum. An atheneum is a library or place of study.
Technically speaking, the aiki atheneum is collaborative curation and contextualization from a research database around a given topic. It allows collaborators to build a shared archive and curate that archive into deep contextualization into what we call ‘context cubbies’. It will be published in open source
As aiki.wiki launches and grows, it publishes it’s outcomes via the atheneum which can be discovered as search topics in the library.
The atheneum is collaborative like Wikipedia, but with a few core exceptions. The atheneum is a library, not an encyclopedia – and the atheneum’s permissions to curate, while collaborative, is by invitation only.
aiki wiki is only the provider of the atheneum and the rules which govern it via the ikia. This atheneum you are currently reading is only a library of the full aiki wiki field of study. This is not the ultimate purpose of the atheneum.
The purpose of the aiki atheneum is service to those who seek to discover knowledge and understanding from a credible source. To publish a complete and fully contextualized library around every topic or subject of study in the world with deep contextualization and offer this free of charge online.
The secondary service of the atheneum is to the leading experts, teachers, professors, educators, researchers and writers in each field of study. The atheneum offers to them a free platform which can assist in the education of both students and any online user researching a topic. Additionally, the atheneum offers a suite of solutions that assists educators in clarifying credible contextualization for broad community awareness and social engagement.
The complete aiki atheneum will be licensed via invitation to specific research organizations, universities, and institutions who are established and credible authorities on the subject matters relative to their expertise.
The aiki atheneum is launching our pilot program with the University of Washington – Bothell in collaboration with the Minor in Consciousness and the CERC (Center for Education and Research into Consciousness) initiative.

Aiki is a Japanese word from Budo, or ´war art´ and refers to a ‘great harmony’ that is available in a battle or conflict. A wiki is a platform for collaborative editing.
‘aiki.wiki ™’ is a platform for online collaborative consensus building and publishing.
The full platform has three distinct functions.
- aiki wiki is the online forum for collaborative discussion and negotiation.
- aiki atheneum is the library for collaborative curation, publishing and broadcasting.
- aiki ikia is the governing rules of community engagement across aiki wiki and aiki atheneum.
Discussion, negotiation, conflict resolution, problem solving, collective editing, group curation, deep contextualization, authoritative and credible broadcasting are all features that emerge in resolving the conflict of idea through the aiki wiki suite of engagement.
aiki wiki: resolution for the conflict of idea
aiki wiki as an algorithm for collaborative discussion engineering is a functional, logical and intuitive approach that allows two ideologically opposed users to both ‘win’ their disagreement and publish an outcome as a collective agreement or resolution.
As long as users keep discussing, resolution is the only logical and intuitive result.
Through ‘it’s unique process for collaboration – aiki.wiki will produce articles, solutions, and outcomes that were formed by a true and honest rational consensus.
aiki.wiki will be able to process global discussions at scale– and the more that participate in a topic article the more robust that solution or article will be clarified and refined.
Introducing subtle gamification, aiki wiki provides three unique arenas which manage the three types of discussion around a topic.
- aiki wiki forms a rational consensus in the Arena of the King which manages critical discussions emerging in the topic.
- Opinion, commentary, or any type of creative discussion emerges within the Arena of the People.
- Open questions emerging in the topic become governed inside the Arena of Inquiry.
aiki wiki’s algorithm then identifies and rewards editing permissions to participants based on their behaviors and consistency within any topic discussed.
aiki.wiki is fun. It’s like taking the best of Wikipedia and the best of Reddit and fusing them into a holistic and elegant platform for publishing and discussion engineering without competing with either of them. It creates new methods for online engagement which previously never existed, allowing for new measurements and outcomes.
aiki.wiki’s unique discussion algorithm will evolve to be customizable for online encyclopedias such as Wikipedia, social networks and any publisher that seek to resolve or solve critical issues that require a trusted rational consensus and benefit from large scale collective participation.
The prototype for aiki wiki’s discussion arena is currently in development. We expect to publish the prototype by Q2 of 2015. We have successfully processed one test discussion, which will be re-coding the prototype over the next coming months.
