Glossary

This page explains the terminology used throughout the Open Constitution articles.
Glossary:
I.
Computing Model: here shall mean an information processing apparatus, comprising of a software, hardware or both, which processes and hosts data. Each machine is identified by a unique Internet Protocol(I.P).
Quantum Cognition Energy Model: here shall mean an information processing bio-apparatus, comprising of unique association(s) and processing of sentience.
Open Source: here means a lifecycle state of an ‘’object’’ of quantum observation (read creation of the Foundation), whose source can be accessed (also changed, or destroyed) with an open, or permissive or very slightly permissive(but not entirely closed) governance, which increases transparency in the traceability of object’s source, and never otherwise.
II. Network shall mean an inter connected association model
e.g network of machine: shall mean an inter connected set of computing machines.
III. Sentience:
For the purposes of articles of association of the natural persons of the Open Constitution, Sentience in humans is described as an emergent anthropic information phenomenon of conservation of quantum cognition energy, during (an infinitesimally fast) gradient conversion between Self and Universal temporal existential references.
The gradient conversions of quantum cognition energy results in qualias like identity, and other expression of sentience in human beings. There are correlations in sentience between observers. Various scientific convention models between human observers have been developed which attempt to define these complex set of linkages.
Sentience is perceived by an observer with a bio-organic corporeality. Sentience phenomenon observed in humans have wide variance.
Humans here shall mean (Homo sapiens) who are the most abundant and widespread species of primate, characterized by bipedalism and large, complex brains. They are intelligent, capable of episodic memory, have flexible facial expressions, self-awareness and a theory of mind.
What is a Human life?
In this context, a human life is that of the observer, all of the quantum cognition energy conversions within a variance of Self and Universal temporal existential references, characterised by mostly continuous, linear, temporal cognition.
Self temporal existential reference or Self is described as an observer’s existential cognition reference state(s), which are epistemologically bounded to a linear temporal corporeality.
Universal temporal existential reference: All that is there to observe
An Observer or observation or observation state of corporeality is described as a sustainable cognition when quantum cognition energy is in equilibrium between Self and Universal temporal existential reference state(s), which may or may not be epistemologically bounded to a linear temporal corporeality.
‘’A Self is an observer but an observer may or may not be Self in a given temporal-corporeality.’’
‘’It is the observer who is experiencing both Self and the universal temporal existential references.’’
​
IV.
Sentience data: here shall mean meta data associated with a neurological experience, connected to human consciousness, and whose meta data is being hosted and processed, over a network of computing machines, across the world wide web.
Meta Data: here shall mean "data", in connection with the Sentience of any voluntarily organised citizen of the Open Constitution, and which is hosted or have been processed by the computing machines.
​
V. Local Space: here shall mean local geographical space(land, water and airspace), governed by local jurisdiction.
Cyber Space: here shall mean Internet space hosted on all the networked computing machines on the planet earth.
International Space: here shall mean International geographical space(land, water and airspace), including e.g disputed geographical territories, non registered UN member states etc.
Interstellar Space: here shall mean space beyond the gravitational influence of Planet Earth, measured using an information signal at or above the escape velocity.
VI. BoD: BoD or Board of Directors here shall only and only mean an Independent Board of Directors, unless explicitly mentioned otherwise.
VII. Local law: shall mean Business laws of a local jurisdiction, where Muellners Foundation has appointed a legal body as a Fiscal Host, and the legally constituted body has adopted these bylaws.
VIII. Jurisdiction: here shall mean an authority granted to a legal body but public representative entity in exercising protection of human rights in a local space.
Types of Jurisdictions:
Local Jurisdiction: shall mean a legal authority of people's representation within a geographical region and which has been granted to a public authority.
These global statutes recognise that all UN member state Governments as having sovereign local jurisdictions on the geographically located space and airspace above it.
Cyber Jurisdiction: shall mean a declared legal authority of people's representation in cyber space and which has been granted to a public authority or a public ledger or a network of computing machines(whether located in local or international or interstellar space), by virtue of a representational public authority.
Global Jurisdiction: shall mean a natural person's declared legal authority over public representation of their Sentience, beyond the reasonable limits of the local and cyber jurisdictions and above and over the conflicts with local and cyber jurisdictions.
These global statutes consider no single public authority having absolute global jurisdiction on the Meta Data, but only very limiting Local jurisdiction over hosted Meta Data, in connection with each natural person's sentience, in context of laws of local jurisdiction.
Interstellar Jurisdiction: shall mean a natural person's declared legal authority over public representation of their Sentience, beyond the reasonable limits of the local, cyber and global jurisdictions and above and over the conflicts with local, cyber and global jurisdictions.
IX. Foundation: unless explicity mentioned, Foundation shall mean constituent Fiscal Hosts - registered legally organised voluntary associations or co-operatives in different parts of the world.
The term “Foundation” is foremost a set of underlying design principles or basis for a responsive union of entities e.g by following a set of guiding principles. https://docs.muellners.info/guiding-principles​
X.
Natural Persons: shall mean a natural person (also physical person in some Commonwealth countries, or natural entity) is a person (in legal meaning, i.e., one who has its own legal personality)
Electronic Persons: shall mean artificial machine or computing entities whose legal capacity is performed through an institutional unit of this Foundation, and whose activities are governed by a set of Statutes, thus it is not a constant whether they are an organizational unit or not.
XI. Legal Body: shall mean a legally organised voluntary association or co-operative or a private limited or a public limited body, or such legal entities, registered in accordance to Local law.
XII. Citizens: shall mean Natural Persons who have atleast subscribed to Foundation's community and have acquired a subscription account on Foundation's decentralised communications systems.
For the purpose of these articles and elsewhere on this Open Constitution, terms such as members, constituents, human beings, shall all mean "citizens".
Global Citizen: shall mean citizens registered on Open Constitution's global registry. All ordinary members as well as subscribed members of the Open Constitution, therefore are commonly refered to as Global Citizen, in several pages of this Open Constitution,
Local Citizen: shall mean citizens registered with any of the Open Constitution's local registry, linked to a Fiscal Host.
Beneficiary Citizen: shall mean citizens registered on Open Constitution's global beneficiary registry. Emeritus Citizen: shall mean citizens de-registered from the Local or global Open Constitution registry, acquire a "emeritus" status on the Open Constitution network.
​
XIII. Open Council: here shall mean governance body of the Foundation, comprising of different Council Committees and Core Working Groups.
XIV: Instrument: here shall mean a set of legal doctrines of the Open Constitution, which establish laid out procedures for Foundation's proceedings.
Several covenants of the Open Constitution are publicly listed on specific pages.
XV: Legal Action: here shall mean action, class action, suit or proceeding (or part thereof) in a court of Local jurisdiction, both in defence or in enforcement of Foundation's citizen rights.
XVI: Project: here shall mean an action or a motion by two or more citizens of the Foundation, within the guiding principles and governed by this Open Constitution.
Minimum Criteria for a Foundation motion, regarded as a "Project":
Atleast one elected Project CWC member, one Steering Council member affiliated with the Project, public facing records of the motion, and a public discussion forum on the motion.
XVII:
State: means a legal construct of collective geopolitical responsibility, and self governance, as defined by Articles of Association between two or more natural person(s) or legal bodies, within the limits of a geographical planetary space, existing as a consequence of rules of international law.
Union: means a legal construct of collective responsibility, and self governance, as defined by Articles of Association between two or more natural person(s) or legal bodies or “sovereign” states, existing as a consequence of rules of international law.
Sovereignty: Sovereignty, in this conception, does not define, but is defined by, the legal powers of a state within an international society of states. It does not exist prior to law, but as a set of attributes of the legal construct that is the state, existing as a consequence of law.
International Economic Union: means any economic Union, which promotes global cooperation, within the scope of ratified “economic cooperation” treaties between multilateral parties.
Regional Economic Union: means any economic Union, which promotes regional cooperation, within the scope of ratified “economic cooperation” treaties between two or more independent member states of the UN.
“GVCs”: Global Value Chains: means any value chain frameworks, within the rules of international law, with interlinked, and publicly auditable intervention measures from any sovereign, international stakeholder, including but not limited to governments of member states of UN, International Financial Institutions, International economic unions, and regional economic unions.
“RVCs”: Regional Value Chains: means any value chain frameworks, within the rules of international law, with interlinked, and publicly auditable intervention measures from any autonomous, regional stakeholder, including but not limited to governments of member states of UN, International Monetary bodies, International economic unions and regional economic unions.
International Financial Institution: means Multilateral Development Financial Institutions that are instituted by three or more independent member states eg IMF, World Bank etc.
Central Bank: means a principle regulatory body of RVC and RVC’s payment systems.

Special Notes:
  1. 1.
    Several instruments and articles thereof use gender appropriate terminology e.g "his or her or their", "he or she or "them".
Readers shall interpret the gender neutral words at their own liberty but only for representing an anonymous member's gender identity in the context of Open Constitution's citizenship.
2. All measurements of time - minutes, years are in the context of timezones on planet Earth.
