Mindplex does not track you. But we do measure and record behaviors on our website to enable use in our reputation system. (How we measure reputation on Mindplex and other websites that use our reputation engine is explained in detail here.) We do not reward reputation points based on who you are, we reward you based on what you do!

To achieve  that, our reputation system observes some parameters (behaviors) during user’s interaction with content/other users/content creators. For example your association determines your bias! Most people give the ‘thumbs up’ interaction and share a content if it is published by someone they follow (if I like your posts, you will like mine! If I share your posts regardless of their merit, you will start following me or add me as your friend regardless of my merit). 

We also track  personal and environmental polarity. 

Personal polarity: some people are  optimists, so when they interact, they always give positive feedback (such as a thumbs-up emoticon and “great” in their comment). On the other hand, some people are  pessimists, so  when they interact they give negative feedback (such as a thumbs-down emoticon and “awful” in their comment). 

Environmental polarity: some people, to protect their group, will not play fair. Such people will give an exaggerated negative feedback to any content if it criticizes or argues against their group’s beliefs. Even if they are consuming a well constructed, logically valid, and aesthetically pleasing content, they will never give a positive feedback. 

Mindplex cannot be a merit-based decentralized platform if its AI-enhanced tools ignore such biases. So how do we track such behavior — without tracking your identity? Simple, via your interaction on our platform. But once you leave our site, we do not follow you; no cookies, or any known tracking system. We respect your privacy!

Content Access

Mindplex is currently  free. You can access all contents — no account required.  If you choose to create an account, you will be able to interact with content and content creators and start building your reputation. When we introduce premium features, we’ll keep you advised.


“Mindplex” is a term Dr. Ben Goertzel originally introduced in 2003 to designate a mind that’s more unified than human society, but less unified than an individual human mind. “Mindplex”  was later expanded in a paper on non-ordinary states of consciousness — including states where multiple people feel fused into a sort of mutually experiencing whole.

Decentralized AI-AGI-blockchain Tools

Mindplex is also an AI-meets-blockchain platform for experimenting with new tools that decentralize and democratize benevolent AI and AGI (artificial general intelligence).

These tools include:

Content Factory — a reputation-based (based on reader interactions) matchmaking engine that allows Mindplex community members to build their network and control the flow of content in a decentralized and democratic manner. Click here for more detail. 

Reputation Engine, a complex-systems-theory-based reputation system for rewarding content creators and content consumers,  using merit-based interaction with content.

AI-based experiments 

  • Interactive and collaborative content-creation tool— focused initially on creating interactive science-fiction that explores the potential implications and uses of AI in ranking, curating, and merging alternative storylines. For example, if ten people worked on a book that has ten chapters, and if each of these ten people wrote ten different chapters, there are 3,628,800 possible outputs as fully developed books.
  • AI-generated memes and comics.
  • Collaboration with SophiaDAO, another amazing SingularityNET ecosystem project, on immersive virtual-world scenarios related to Mindplex content.
  • Leveraging TWIN Protocol technology, allowing users to create their own digital twins and allow others to experience their twins’ reactions to Mindplex content.

These  major tools are described in detail in other pages of our FAQ.


“The mind is only free for those who own their online selves. Decentralized, democratized media need decentralized, democratized AI.” Dr. Ben Goertzel. 

While Mindplex is currently managed by editors, it intends to become a fully decentralized media platform in the future. However, Mindplex will stand as a neutral platform. This means there will be an objective method of evaluating content submission from our contributors,  who will be empowered to publish any well-researched, unbiased content regardless of our different views.

Editorial Team

The Mindplex editorial team is led by noted AI scientist Ben Goertzel, PhD; Editor-in-Chief; Senior Editor Amara Angelica, who edited for 18 years and helped Ray Kurzweil create The Singularity Is Near and other works; Associate Editor/Podcast Producer/Co-host Lisa Rein, freelance journalist for more than 25 years, musician, filmmaker, VR developer, and Co-Founder of Creative Commons and Aaron Swartz Day; and Conor O’Higgins, Managing Editor, who has been involved in the media side of the blockchain industry since 2016, and has led media campaigns for several top-100 cryptocurrencies.

What is Mindplex?

Where the future gets [sur]real

It’s a magazine. A podcast. An experimental AI-blockchain platform. A Singularity nudge. Prepare to be mindplexed! Mindplex, in its early days, will be a future-oriented magazine.

Topics covered will range from AI, crypto, biotech, nanotech and brain-computer interfacing to consciousness, quantum computing, radical physics, psychedelics, and parapsychology — focusing on the edge of the edge.
