Reality: reality works based on probabilities, not based on absolutes
Philosophical background of
is the concept that reality works
This is widely agreed as the most plausible concept in current technical, scientific, and philosophical communities. Multiple
different views of truth, right or wrong, reality, … exist in parallel.
Some are more plausible (higher probability to be correct) than others. A fundamental, unchangeable, ultimately
truth does not exist.
The probability 0 (0% likelyness, can not happen) and the probability 1 (100% likelyness,
must happen) are purely hypothetical concepts.
Although in everyday life, many events are quasi deterministic (action: put glass an table; result: glass will stand
on the table), there is no guarantee that these events must happen as assumed to be most probable (alternative
result: sometimes the glass topples over and falls off the table).
is a platform for egalitarian coexistence of multiple value systems.
It is not a goal of
to promote any one value system (independent, whether it's based on
philosophy, mindset, believe, religion, …). Online-Nation.net intends to provide a neutral and unbiased
platform for a free play of value systems.
Tolerance: with a
reality approach and neutrality a policy of mutual tolerance is a prerequisite
In a probabilistic system with "truth" being no absolute but a
(and often individual) quality, it is
essential to respect other truths and allow even mutually exclusive truths to exist peacefully in parallel.
Individuals in the
community are allowed to choose freely, which value system they adopt for themselves and which value systems they actively support.
As long as at least one individual supports a specific value system, this system is existing legitimately!
system however, the "voice" of any value system is determined by the number of its supporters.
: to allow tolerance to intolerant systems

Some value systems, especially religiously motivated ones, depend on the assumption of one unchangeable,
undisputable truth. For lack of a better, non derogatory name, these systems will be called "
These value systems would face a natural conflict in a totally open, neutral, and tolerant environment like
Out of respect (and tolerance) for these systems,

) area, where an uncensored flow of information is guaranteed from the protected into
the free area but unidirectional filters (censor systems) can be installed to saveguard the individual value systems
of the various deterministic systems in the protected area.
While this system somehow goes against the principle idea of an open community, tolerance even to intolerant systems must
be ensured to avoid any need for censorship in the
. Any ideas how to install a better system to allow
parallel existence of uncensored and censored systems to replace the "
" idea is welcome!
