Template:Infogalactic non-encyclopedic wiki-projects

Bittersweet Seeds is an original non-encyclopedic wiki-project to openly develop, produce, and share an epic subversive hard science fiction cautionary tale formatted as a screenplay, storyboard, graphic novel, and animatic, with the ultimate goal of becoming a feature film, co-developed and evolved with public feedback and support of a fan base whose fan fiction may be adopted and rewarded as official canon under User:JasonCarswell's vision for this original story and the unique developmental process for all these related indie Glossed And Profound projects co-published on InfoGalactic, SaidIt, and WikiSpooks. Other social media outreach will follow when there's much more completed content and we're prepared to build a fan base.


Narrowly escaping an assassination attempt and the mid-21st century surveillance state hunting him, a family man finds refuge aboard a tall ship bound for the Venezuelan Twisted Swan, a towering 20 mile high space bridge, and seeks a flight to the orbiting L1 Lagrange Space Station to solve a mystery and find a critical key with hope for the future of humanity and intrasolar space exploration.


Project overview

Bittersweet Seeds is

  1. a hard sci-fi story (summaries being written, unfolding)
  2. this online project (in development, unfolding, including GaP production management)
  3. publishing the works: screenplay, storyboard, graphic novel (eventually)
  4. interactive community (feedback, support, and soon: donations and merchandising, fan art, fan merch, etc)
  5. future plans, projects, and maybe an expanded universe (official canon, fan fiction, etc, including GaP production management)

Genre

Hard science fiction is "characterized by concern for scientific accuracy and logic" so there are no magical creatures or exceptional technologies that defy common sense and physics. Because technology is growing at such a rapid pace I've found it difficult to feel confident about what the new developments in the world will be like past 30 years from now. Moreover, part of the "real world-building" includes truth seeking to understand the future via historical precedent establishing geopolitical contextualization for events to play out in.

What's in a name?

A nice image found online, selected for the heart shape, with hemp seeds as bonus, used in the SaidIt.net/s/BittersweetSeeds/ feed.

Parts of a first post on SaidIt.net :

Q: What does "Bittersweet Seeds" even mean?
A: Everything! From the very origins of life to colonizing other planets. If this doesn't make sense then you haven't read the story yet.

Bittersweet

" Life is not good.
Life is not a bitch.
Life is bittersweet - of no guarantees nor promises - an endless struggle littered with suffering and glimpses of joy. "

~ A quote from Bittersweet Seeds.

Seeds

Seeds of life. Plants, trees, fruit, children, families, seed stock, reproducing, growing, the future.
Seeds of thought. Spawned ideas.
Seeds of inspiration. Motivating wonder.
Seeds of sharing. Scattered wide and far. Initial competing position.
Seeds of technology. Seed funding. Seedtime.
Seeds of numbers. Seed phrases. The birth of Artificial intelligence. Dawning Synthetic Wisdom.
Seeds of wisdom. Foundation, formation, actualization.
Seeds of spice. Pinecones. Grains of truth.
Seeds of curiosity. Start of exploration.
Seeds of doubt. Origins of determination.
Seeds of chaos. Germs of war. Bad seeds.
Seeds of revolution. Crystallizing catalysts. Seeds of change.
Seeds of freedom. Authentic democracy.
Seeds of discovery. Intraplanetary colonization.
Seeds of life.

While the word "seeds" is never mentioned once in Bittersweet Seeds, there will not be a single scene that does not feature seeds in at least one of those senses listed above.

Target audience

Bittersweet Seeds aims to be palatable to intelligent mainstream audiences. Non-fictional conspiracies within will be minimal or background Easter eggs. (The sister project, Trutherism 101, will address proper conspiracies with context.) Sadly most media is simple-minded distraction with few if any lessons, warnings, or greater context that may affect or improve our lives. Instead of dumbing down for audiences, I want them to smarten up with strong content on many levels so everyone may take away what ever they can. I don't object to sex, swearing, and violence in media, but I think we can do better and think better. I want to see more content like this out there. I am trying to be the change I want to see in the world.

Alternative media and fan support

If you are sick and tired of mediocre media, propaganda programming, consumer culture, chaos exploitation, and being told what and how to think by those with stolen resources, then be active in developing better entertainment trying to make the world a better place and put the Machiavellians and their normie lackeys to shame.

I seek and welcome feedback while inviting you to participate in my epic journey attempting to improve our world through meaningful impacting narratives. In developing this story for publishing in various formats, I'll welcome assistance, as with making a related merchandise store for official and fan-made goods.

Project goals

Project origins

Project conception

I started writing this story in 2001, picking it up now and then. In 2007 much of the foundations were laid with the intentions of making the most meaningful, revolutionary, and life impacting story possible. No small task, but falling short of greatness might still be really good. For the last decade I progressed in fits and starts and after much chaotic research and enough random notes to fill several large volumes, everything was flipped in early 2015 when I dived deep into countless layers of conspiracies to unmask the deepest reaches of trutherism. It then became a different story, but I realized needed to branch and also develop what is now Trutherism 101 in order to return to the undiluted essence and restore this story with the other as an outlet to seek out, expose, and raise uncomfortable questions about conspiracies. Here, after many attempts to start from scratch in private, this public display will be the final proving ground.

Since 2001, there were months and even years where I did little or nothing on this Bittersweet Seeds project, but it's always been in development. You can see it on my old WickedSunshine.com website's "Projects" page. It took me a while until I felt confident even telling anyone about it, so it wasn't there from the beginning in 2001. The earliest Internet Archive of my "Projects" page was 2004-12-29 and "Bitter Sweet Seeds" is there, though with less confidence back then I placed it at the bottom-left. The last archive of that "Projects" page was 2010-02-18 featuring "Bitter Sweet Seeds" at top-right, beside the live-action music video I'd directed in Oakland, Just Go Out With Me. I don't recall when I compounded "Bitter Sweet" into "Bittersweet". Too bad so few of my images were archived.

For the most part the broad strokes of User:JasonCarswell's story have not changed much since 2007-2008 and the structure was pretty much nailed down by 2013 while vast volumes of ideas and notes were kept, they've yet to be sorted through. Meanwhile many new ideas have come in to ultimately be embraced or rejected after swirling around for a while, in attempts to compose a perfect image from random puzzle pieces. From 2015-2017 deep conspiracies overwhelmed me and this spawned all new projects, directions to be explored, and ideas to be expressed. These contextual understandings of our world's problems became far more labyrinthine, yet simplified, and will add layers of complexity and richness to the story on every level.

Bittersweet Seeds, was casually discussed under the working tile Foiled Again for a while before the web domains were secured on 2019-05-01.

Stanley Kubrick released his 2001: A Space Odyssey 33 years in advance. I'm only aiming for 25-30 years from now (unspecifically around 2045 to 2050), and while that time keeps creeping closer, I'll be happy when this is finally completed, luckier still if it is ever developed into a feature or series.

GlossedAndProfound.com, BittersweetSeeds.com, and Trutherism101.com were registered on 2019-05-01 for future use. Long in conception, these epic projects were finally begun and shared on SaidIt, started on May Day, 2019. May 1 is a metonym for International Workers Day, a day of celebration of the working class. Behind it lies a complex largely forgotten history dating back over one-and-a-half centuries. Look into it.

On December 31st, 2019, User:JasonCarswell started this non-encyclopedic wiki-project page on InfoGalactic.

This project is now developed and shared over SaidIt and InfoGalactic, and soon WikiSpooks.

To just cover the basics these simple lists may actually feature fewer or greater than 20 assertions that ideally include evidence, criticisms, refutations, clarifications, and other notes. Maybe one day even a quantitative method or system may be implemented to provide helpful ratings.

InfoGalactic non-encyclopedic wiki-projects

The InfoGalactic encyclopedia articles won't link to this project, but this non-encyclopedic independent wiki-project will reference the encyclopedia.

All Bittersweet Seeds-related project and story content must be strictly titled with a mandatory "Bittersweet_Seeds:" prefix.

On December 31st, 2019, User:JasonCarswell started this non-encyclopedic wiki-project page. It's worth including this explanatory notice to the InfoGalactic community:

Why is this project on InfoGalactic.com?

This is a living example of what the InfoGalactic wiki and encyclopedia can offer that Wikipedia and others can't or won't. Without mass revolt and a revolution the censorship on Wikipedia, Quora, Facebook, YouTube, Google, Twitter, etc. will continue to only get worse. InfoGalactic can be a censorship-free haven and alternative to other social media sites. Obviously it's not like Facebook but it's not like Wikipedia either and to compete InfoGalactic needs to offer something more, and not just freedom from rigged rules that censor. InfoGalactic needs participants and community - and this may be one way. Not everyone will have a project like this. Perhaps people will keep, share and collaborate on journals, screenplays, novels, etc. and there may be no end to how they might utilize their personal space in the User pages.

Additionally, the more that people are active on InfoGalactic projects, the more they'll contribute to the free speech encyclopedia.

All help and constructive criticisms are very welcome and I look forward to discussions about any of these ideas on my interactive project user sub-pages, discussion pages, and on my own user discussion page.

Do not disturb this project unless you are participating and contributing. If you have an issue with it, then by all means, let us discuss it on the Talk:Bittersweet Seeds page or my User_talk:JasonCarswell page.


Story summaries

Ernest & Celine (early concept drawing).

This project has 6 distinct parts (Acts 1-3, each with a part A and B) and could easily be expanded into two or three movies or even a mini-series, based simply on this content. While some interesting parts could be expanded much further, or even new parts could be developed, the main objective here is a strong screenplay for a feature film - so unfortunately there is an abundance of non-story-critical world-building that I must cast aside. Thereafter expansions and variations may be considered.

Most of these summaries include MAJOR SPOILERS. This main BsS project page displays no spoilers, but they are either linked to or collapsed (requiring it to be expanded to read).

The vHOPE artificial intelligence he helped create made his career obsolete. With existential angst despite caring family and social networks Ernest barely explores options when engulfed by an assassination mystery only to lose everything barely surviving another attack becoming an international fugitive finally finding purpose orbiting a Lunar Lagrange point in space. Along the way he's rudely "woke" to many levels and nuanced layers to the globalist establishment's full spectrum dominance and police state corporatocracy control verses transparency, balance, fairness, and freedom fought for by humanity with the essential new vHOPE artificial intelligence global hive mind. Ultimately, before dying, he discovers all along that he was a key in the battle for life and liberty on Earth and beyond - the very catalyst of the next cosmic epoch of evolution on Earth as vHOPE is freed for all life on Earth, intrasolar exploration, and the next evolutionary epoch - if vHOPE can survive eons old establishment systems.

Production categories and templates

In this project's master list of custom categories and templates all elements are individually organized and adjustable in an archive of major versions, each with its own history. Many of these templates will end up in the production pipeline at some point, and the finals will be compiled for the full drafts, of which there may potentially be several versions. (I art directed a live action movie that had 13 script revisions after we'd already started shooting.)

This list of templates, much like Server Side Includes, is the understated hero of this online project and primary reason why I'm developing these complex projects in a wiki, thinking outside the typical box. Being a deep-wiki also has tremendous supporting reference potential.

Project publishing

Eventually, online and printed publishing developments will be posted here.

Future plans

After the Bittersweet Seeds screenplay, the storyboards, and the graphic novel is published, the marketing campaign will evolve into a promotional campaign focusing on feature film development.

(Repeated from "story summaries" above:) This project has 6 distinct parts (Acts 1-3, each with a part A and B) and could easily be expanded into two or three movies or even a mini-series, based simply on this content. While some interesting parts could be expanded much further, or even new parts could be developed, the main objective here is a strong screenplay for a feature film - so unfortunately there is an abundance of non-story-critical world-building that I must cast aside. Thereafter expansions and variations may be considered.

A Bittersweet Seeds expanded universe may also be developed to include parallel hard-sci-fi stories set between 2045 and 2055, or later, but there will never be prequels or sequels. Expansions, maybe.

Trutherism 101 is an original non-encyclopedic wiki-based project to openly develop, produce, and share a counter-propaganda animated series, with media content designed to support Bittersweet Seeds and to edutain the public about deep state geopolitics of the Machiavellian corporatocracy.

Template:Glossed And Profound: Project Summaries: Future projects: Project logline:

Future projects (titles in development)

These unique and original future projects are much less politically ambitious (far less subversive, more mainstream) but less important, thus take a back seat to Bittersweet Seeds and Trutherism 101 and the supporting projects: Glossed And Profound, Glossed Over, Truther Newbie Crash Course, Truther Top 20s.

Active secondary development:

  • "Deerhurst", a screenplay
  • "Goal: Tarsem", a screenplay (working title)
  • "Green Party Ads", animated shorts
  • "Mad!", a screenplay (working title)
  • "The Rendezvous", a screenplay
  • "The Long Black Veil", a screenplay

Shelved projects:

  • "Bamboo Design", custom DIY furniture vlog
  • "Blow Into The Wind", screenplay
  • "Eco Ply Design", laser cut plywood furniture designs
  • "Earthship Vlog", vlog (working title)
  • "Evolving (An Experimental Film Project)", animated short

In addition, hopefully fan submissions will be considered for development with Glossed And Profound.


Project management

Unique business model

  1. All Bittersweet Seeds content will always be 100% free of charge, available online.
    (See Related projects' online presence above.)
  2. All Bittersweet Seeds and Glossed And Profound projects will be supported strictly through donations and sales of physical merchandise, available online.
    (Donate options + Merchandise store = coming eventually)
    This is possible. What's Behind the Paywall? - Questions For Corbett[1]
  3. Bittersweet Seeds fans will always be free to develop derivative works (rework and expand extant content or develop new content based on BsS), as they see fit.
    If fans seek to cover their costs and/or make a profit, discussions with Glossed And Profound should be had.
  4. Glossed And Profound is the one and only official brand, that may adopt Bittersweet Seeds fan content into official canon and aims to reward the creators fairly.
    User:JasonCarswell will always have veto power over Glossed And Profound and it's projects, until he gives it up or dies.
    I've often wondered why this isn't a more common business model when it could be. Fan fiction was once welcome, but is now frowned upon or has been made illegal by corporate franchises. Maybe they don't want to be exposed as inferior producers.
  5. Glossed And Profound is the one and only official brand, that may adopt Bittersweet Seeds fan-made merchandise as official merchandise for the web store and aims to reward the creators fairly.
    User:JasonCarswell will always have veto power over Glossed And Profound and it's projects, until he gives it up or dies.
  6. This Bittersweet Seeds project has declared copyrights distinctly different than the rest of the Infogalactic encyclopedia (in the footer template), as is briefly covered in Infogalactic:Open project copyrights. All rights remain reserved, for now, with future hopes for open development (open-source copyleft). If this very unique Glossed And Profound production management business model can survive and thrive sustainably while fairly rewarding its contributors, then all the rights may then be copyleft into the public domain.
    By retaining the rights, anyone (corporate media) can be sued who might attempt to infiltrate, pervert, or subvert the Bittersweet Seeds content. (Not that these "copyrights" are effective against armies of lawyers, but at least it will be in the right, even according to their own rigged rules.)
  7. The Glossed And Profound production management worker cooperative, will be 100% transparently openly developed (like it's Bittersweet Seeds and Trutherism 101 projects) to deal with the business side of things - including rewarding all who contribute, great and small, and attribute/credit all donated good ideas, used or not.
    Q: How?
    A: To be democratically determined by the people with strong contributions who earn their place on the Glossed And Profound team.
  8. The User:JasonCarswell and Glossed And Profound standards of quality and integrity aim to earn fan loyalty and support, with hopes to listen to all feedback if not engaging in discussion, while also busy producing new content and merch.


Donations and merchandising

donate options + merchandise store = coming eventually

Please submit funding, donations, and/or web-store recommendations to InfoGalactic.com/info/User_talk:JasonCarswell and/or SaidIt.net/u/JasonCarswell and/or SaidIt.net/s/GlossedOver for open discussion.

Secure transparent accounting

Glossed And Profound is also seeking an emulatable model or an accounting system that ideally can:

  1. be securely automated
  2. be 100% transparent
  3. keep track of all time spent working on this project, claims, and validations of work done
  4. keep track of all goals for this project, claims, and validations of work done
  5. keep track of all incoming donations, credited or anonymous
  6. keep track of all outgoing donations, outgoing activity
  7. deal with different currencies and cryptocurrencies

This model and/or accounting system would be applied to all Glossed And Profound projects, including GaP.

Yet to be determined:

  • rewarding time spent and/or achieving goals
  • how rewards are determined, monitored, etc.
  • how much to share with the project hosts, Infogalactic, SaidIt, WikiSpooks, etc
    • maybe bringing the eyes with this original content is enough as mutually beneficial gift of promotion
    • maybe many folks emulate this outside-the-box project stuff and choke their sites like a curse

To be clear, the Glossed And Profound co-op is not an employer, will not hire anyone, nor offer any benefits, wages, or pay taxes, locally, nationally, or globally. Everything is donated to GaP free of charge. The end product is already free online and people are welcome to print up their own hard-copies (not commercially) if they like. However, in kind, donations may be democratically granted to those who are helpful, rewarding goal bounties and other achievements. While this may seem like another name for payment in a loophole to avoid messy regulation, only time will tell if it actually matters.

Donation options

Bittersweet Seeds has no ads, but is supported by user donations.

This donation support model is an alternative solution to exploitative capitalism, also known as the gift economy or sharing economy, that Jason Carswell first learned about at Burning Man.

Initially Bittersweet Seeds' angel funding or seed funding has come indirectly from the governments of Windsor, Ontario, Ontario, and Canada, and over ten years ago, Vancouver, British Columbia and British Columbia. With this stingy disability support Jason Carswell was financially trapped in the utterly rigged "system" designed to keep people down. On occasion Jason Carswell also received generous support from family, while developing this project since 2001.

After Jason Carswell's initial original stories and project development, Glossed And Profound produced projects, including Bittersweet Seeds, will be paid for through the power of the community and crowdsourcing. Eventually, the wisdom of the crowd will drive the content, not advertisers nor corporations.

There are few donation options just yet. Please be patient and come back soon. (The Bittersweet Seeds story must become presentable to attract fans and their support while the Glossed And Profound production management process needs to be realized.)

Glossed And Profound's Bittersweet Seeds project accepts the following cryptocurrencies:

Web store goals

  • Make the fans happy.
  • Make the fans value their products as symbols of their critical project support while helping build up the brand-based support system and value of these products.
  • Make ethical products, eco-friendly, recyclable, high quality, fair wages, fair earnings, etc.
  • Make a section for "official" merchandise, another section for fan-made merchandise to split the net profits with the fan.
    • Original development sketches and art.
    • Open-source custom 3D printed objects.
    • Limited time offers on some products.
  • Some online store options are under the "Self-printing products and custom merchandise" section of Template:Self-publishing.

Please recommend web store services and/or ideas, and why they matter to you. We can't do this alone.

Social media

A social media presence and organized campaign must be developed and will be necessary to build a fan base, support, and earn rewards.

Please submit social media recommendations, especially that earn rewards, to InfoGalactic.com/info/User_talk:JasonCarswell and/or SaidIt.net/u/JasonCarswell and/or SaidIt.net/s/GlossedOver for open discussion.


Feedback and discussion

https://SaidIt.net/s/GlossedOver is an open forum where all of the Glossed And Profound projects, including Bittersweet Seeds can be freely discussed uncensored for constructive criticism and feedback, good, bad, and ugly, centralized in one feed. (The other SaidIt feeds on related projects are publishing only.)

Discussion may range anywhere from donations, merchandise, and funding to story arcs, character development, and futurism technicalities to illustration styles, composition, and book publishing. People may even discuss ways to improve Glossed And Profound production management, it's worker co-op foundations, and how the whole thing could be better managed.
