Snowflake Brain Bees Overview
Snowflake brain bees are on-line, problem-solving forums whereby:
Concerned citizens can easily submit questions, comments, issues or nominations
(items). The item is summarized in 50 words or less, see
The item may include an email address or webpage for item
elaboration.At the submission deadline, participants are randomly
grouped with seven "classmates." They are emailed a ballot with the "brain
bee" items of the other
. These groupings are
akin to classrooms in which classmates compete to be the class spelling champ.
As noted in VoteTime, and a tenet of timism,
each item is a packet of time for humanity, varying in its value to the future
of human existence. Interestingly, "item" is an anagram of "time." (A summary
anagrammatic statement of timism at the
[spinbarism/physics] is the tiem is a time-emit mite item.)
After reviewing the received items of the seven classmates, participants
key in their votes on the email subject line after the word "Vote." Clicking
Reply emails the votes for tabulation. One must rank all the items for one's
votes not to be nullified.
Voting rules list limits
At the voting deadline, votes are tallied:
1st choice receives six points
2nd choice receives five points
3rd choice receives four points
4th choice receives three points
5th choice receives two points, and
6th choice receives one point.
(Some initial brain bees cyberclassrooms only have six participants instead
of seven due to submissions not always being perfect multiples of seven.)
The winner of the on-line classroom voting re-presents the group at the next
level which repeats steps 2 to 5, just like a spelling bee.
Finding the winner is a little faster than the real classroom spelling bee:
300K to 9000K per hour on one computer. And, it costs pennies to find
our Einstein Moments.
Why snowflake? The infinite number of and complexity of snowflakes are based
on the simple principle that water freezes at 60 degree angles with six
options. Likewise, snowflake spelling bees are a simple way to solve
infinitely complex problems based on six options at each decision point.

Brainbees are like spelling bees in which submitters compete to spell out
a problem and a solution. An on-line democratic peer review process allows
an upward progression by
division of seven of
better ideas to solve problems. The better currency for better capitalism--the
lifehour--is an icing on the cake reward beyond
the reward of having a time-wasting problem solved so it does not waste your
life in the form of inconvenience or higher prices.
Inflation reflects the cost of unsolved problems
that cheapen our lives. Brainbees have been developed for most human
problem-solving, decision-making processes from local to global, both public
and private--see Manheavan Project to
save life on earth. When people have an
Einstein moment, brainbees offer
a path by which to share with others. Brainbees institute
the "bottom-up" process by which those who live with the problems
are those who understand the problems and solutions better than those at
the top, e.g., the change in Iraqi policies that reduced
the violence and deaths came from the bottom.
This term 'colfilperhone' became "Brainbee"
in the late 1990s.

The most important reason for participating in brainbees is to
the solution to problems
that you pay for directly or indirectly. The latter costs show up in increases
of living from higher taxes, inflation, insurance and crime. A secondary,
personal reason is the
rewards of winning
a brainbee: lifehours at each level with
GOOHF's for finalists.
