As the task is to enhance life for everybody, in every way possible, we need open source solutions for almost everything. This is not merely a huge amount of work to do,

If we think of a soon-to-come collapse of the global economy (which might end civilization as we know it, along with the internet as the source of the information we provide) it also takes efforts to systematically approach the near-future goal of enabling as many people as possible to simply survive and pass on their knowledge to others.

Right now, thousands of people die each day because they cannot afford water and food. Are we going to do sth. about it? Can we trigger a save-yourself movement throughout the world by teaching people how to survive on nothing?

A tree scheme of what humans need, showing the significance of each item, will help in many ways:

  • emphasizing on what has to be done first
  • drawing attention on what has yet to be done
  • giving users easy access to solutions they are looking for.

Note: On many, especially the higher levels of needs fulfilment, there's always an active and a passive mode: To get provided with sth. and to achieve it oneself, e.g.

  • enjoying a sculpture, and creating a piece of art oneself.
  • retrieving information, and passing it on
  • receiving and giving respect

As we are social beings and as RBOSE wants the information to be spread as wide as possible, the need for communication is involved in almost every activity. Same goes for energy sources.

We can design the tree as an adaptation of Maslow's Pyramid of Needs.

  • Everybody feel free to help improve it.
  • Admins: Allow for automatically displaying the headers with the classification digits (e.g. "5.2.1 Arts" instead of just "Arts").
  • Eventually implement it into the wiki / site structure.

It may look like this:
