The main idea is that in Taiwan, ‘shu wei,’ these two words, means both plural and digital. So, I’m also the minister for plurality. So, the ideal is this, to see the plurality, the diversity, the conflict caused by diversity as fuel for co-creation. And so, just like the rocket engine, right, it’s just a series of rotating explosions, but it flies very fast. So, the whole idea is how to use technology to harness this explosion, but also to foster more diversity, so that there’s a renewable fuel for social conflict into co-creation and so on. Because the current democracy is designed for the voting of the paper ballot. They force the high bandwidth conflict in this resolution into very few bits, right? In a referendum, that’s one bit. A referendum of 14 tickets, 14 bits. Election of eight parties, three bits, right?
