The captivating charm of being unlimitedly human is that each one of us is unique. We are all different. We indulge in being different from others, and we enjoy communicating with others because they are different. Each and everyone of us has their very own views, likes and dislikes, passions, personal life experience, favourite films and music, and plans and dreams that are hiding deep in our individual existence . A complete Universe of things.
The vigour of humans being unique, however, exists and develops in an environment that is inevitably collective. We are not hermits scattered in the mountains, we are currently seven plus billion human beings on the planet, sharing physical and social space with other human beings in our families, cities and villages, in corporations and countries. And intensive contemporary trends in social communications and information exchange makes us feel close to each other more than ever, fully disregarding even geographic distance. If we, humans, are bricks, no matter how perfectly baked, we still need a very high quality mortar, when we intend to construct for ourselves a strong alcazar.
That is the reason why we have rules of living together – customs, laws, regulations and agreements. Written and not written. And practice has times and times reconfirmed the conclusion that those most stable in time, by far massively abided and least provoking conflicts are the rules and laws that are overwhelmingly perceived as fair. But how can we design rules that would be perceived as a fair by very humanly biased innumerable members of a social structure, each having their individual preferences and interests? Can there exist a technology to produce such magic mortar? Well, democracy, genuine direct democracy, could be an approximate tool, but it still leaving us to deal with those who have lost the elections.
If we quest for a clear-cut method, we could reach one, maybe very narrow, but extremely interesting and intellectually appealing zone: the zone of The Absolute Rules, where reside algorithms, rules or sets of rules, that can in the process eliminate the human bias and that have the capacity to lead to decisions which are absolutely impartial and perfectly incontestable. Exquisite products of human intellect, which are Non-Humanly impartial.
The following is one example:
When two pirates had to divide a booty in a fair way, one would divide all the precious things into two heaps, and the other would choose for himself one of those heaps. Done!
