Perpetual Motion

This page describes the design principles of Open Constitution's Perpetual Motion community consensus protocol.
"Oil is going to end one day, therefore we should move to the energy sources where energy is replenishable in direct proportion to our energy requirements."
Foundation's community establishes a governance equilibrium with perpetual motion protocol.
Perpetual Motion is a community consensus protocol.
The action of governance that, once set in motion, would continue in motion forever, with no additional energy required to maintain it.
Decisions arrived out of Open Governance are decisions that influence or continue to influence Foundation's roadmap, direction and active steering.
At times, certain subjects may require that such decisions be taken (which once registered on Serenity), need not be reviewed again, until the end of an electoral period.
All Core Working Committee chairs, Open Council chairs, Ambassador Council chairs, or the Chancellor of the Executive Council can apply Perpetual Motion on merged "Change Requests".
Only merged Change Requests qualify for a Perpetual Motion protocol.
Perpetual Motion cannot be applied to decisions which required immediate processing or those requiring emergency attention i.e proposals or change requests which received a Privilege Motion. Decisions are logged on the Serenity Governance System, with the Perpetual Motion Protocol.
