If you want to contribute, milliongenerations currently needs

- Ideas and support for the 'How can there be most happiness?' competition

- Ideas of how and where to start a Stone Clock project and backers of such a project

- Better ways to explain and communicate the questions and purpose

- Contributors who share and advance the purpose of Million Generations, who pose or answer questions or otherwise reflect on the assumption

- Discussions and ideas about the environment that would be more suited to the purpose, i.e. about how the site should be organized

- Ways to realize and implement the desired environment

- Funds and ideas on ways to raise funds

- A public relations strategy and ways to communicate the existence of and encourage meaningful contributions.

- A video presentation communicating that "there is only one type of human on earth" e.g.,

  • showing different faces (e.g., similar to 6 milliards d'autres and videos (1, 2) of the Charter for Compassion)
  • reflecting on
    • ideas about ancestry and posterity on the scale of a few hundered years (tell me which group has no ancestors in a few hundered years)
    • that no two are identical
    • that our "hardwired" and easily self-reinforcing tendency to divide into groups can dangerously be exploited
    • that this division into groups can be achieved on the basis of arbitrary and irrelevant "characteristics"
    • that we use the the same brain cells to think about us and members of our "group" and different brain cells for members of other groups
    • examples of rapid mixing of different groups e.g., the continuum of people of indigenous and African descent in Cuba

- Background, links to related topics or similar purpose

- A function for notes, references and external links such as the one used in wikipedia articles
