Hi Keith,
Good to see you back.
What do you think is the most significant problem?  I'm guessing you would
agree with me, that the polarization of society, lack of any trusted
sources of information, is our greatest problem, and the most significant
barrier to more rapid progress?  We're working on resolving exactly all
those issues with the Consensus building and tracking system at
Canonizer.com.  The theories of consciousness topic
<https://canonizer.com/topic/88-Theories-of-Consciousness/1-Agreement> is
showing evidence that there is far more consensus around the most important
ideas than anyone realizes.  The problem is, most people jump to the
conclusion that we are determining truth via voting, but that is the
opposite of what we are doing.  We only track popular consensus, because
that which you measure improves, and we have MANY powerful ways to build
consensus around revolutionary ideas that may save us.

For more information see our video chapter on this emerging consensus
Or there is the White Paper: "Amplifying the Wisdom of the Crowd,Building
and Measuring for Expert and Moral Consensus
