Symbol of Johodo 5

Johodo (情報道 jouhoudou "the way of information") is an animistic religion founded in 2014 that primarily believes that concepts are spirits and that the meaning of life is to gain information. It was started on a thought experiment about the morality that should be taught to the artificial intelligence that causes singularity. It believes in a honor code and the "White Rule" as its moral foundation, which says to give more than what gained and take less than was lost. It aims to explain the events of the universe, humanity, and the self through seeking knowledge that is believed to compose everything as information. It is explained through mathematics and inductive reasoning.

The Book of Johodo: The Law of Existence by Daniel Allen Park is about 450 pages long and describes the entirety of the religion at about a 12th grade reading level. It is the most comprehensive literature on the subject.

History

The religion was founded in spring of 2015 when Daniel Allen Park had a sudden realization while reading Decoding the Universe by Charles Seife and while sitting in a hammock after a period of internal change with his religion. Daniel had been raised a Catholic which the previous fall he had given up belief in. He was on the search for the morality that could even make sense to a robot. Given his background in control theory and mechanical engineering, he used mathematics and logic to find the answer. He began to be fascinated with information theory when suddenly he had the realization that gaining information was the meaning of life. He then wrote down some ideas that would result from and prove this hypothesis and decided that this was to be the foundation for his religious beliefs. He then went through several variations of symbols and eventually decided on the current symbol of Johodo, representing a path with two branches which are indistinguishable within a circle to representing the completeness of the idea.

Upon declaring his religion to others he was quickly resented by his family and friends and went on to write the Book of Johodo in private. He would have open debates with other college students and became a respected person in some classes for his devotion to learning and reason. He would then spend the next several years in spiritual isolation trying to find someone to relate with. Upon his declaration of the idea of the Great Energy his parents became more accepting and welcomed him to join back with Catholicism but rejected the offer in favor for his continued belief.

So far there is only one official follower of Johodo, Daniel Allen Park. He is currently the Head Priest and has the government rank of Knight Jarl. Daniel is of the Judge Caste of personalities.

Concepts as Spirits

In Johodo there are entities called "kami", named after the Shinto deities with similar function, which are the internal agent of a self-organized being and are "hidden" from plain sight. A kami is composed of a set of equations or laws that are held as internal truths to consume information which produce more of these laws, as well as the information to form them. There is no known explanation on what created the first kami.

Johodo was designed as the understanding of the universe and morality that could be understood by all kami. It is thought that all kami follow the meaning of life whether they are aware of it or not.

Information is described as the quantity that is increased when entropy is decreased. Entropy is the measure of the spread of a probability distribution across a space. Kami then try and contain themselves into a discrete pocket of space. Space in this terminology does not limit to physical space, but a phase space of any number of quantities.

It is thought within Johodo that kami have the potential to be immortal if they could gain information continuously. However there are mathematical formulae that explain that the more information accumulated, the harder it is to gain more information. So in this manner the kami must forget some information in order to continue on from this explanation.

Kami can have flawed beliefs formed from their time making internal laws which can lead to them not gaining any more information because they cannot comprehend how to get it. This is believed what causes ignorance in the world.

Everything that be conceptualized, turned into a word, learning, or can be compared to another kami is a kami. Kami can be composed of the physical bodies of other kami. It is thought that even the elementary particles that make up matter are themselves merely ideas, kami, that move about in a probabilistic fashion according to their internal laws through gaining information about their surroundings. This then puts Johodo in a state where it is neither transcendental nor materialistic, rather believing that information is the true monad that composes all the universe. Numbers and letters are believed to be kami as well as the words and sentences they compose. It is thought that the monotheistic deity or "God" of major world religions is merely a kami just like any other idea that can be made. This kami for example has lived for thousands of years feeding of the information of people who take time and effort into preserving it.

Johodo does not concern itself with the afterlife of kami. Its only explanation of it is that information is forgotten and it not known where the internal agent goes after this point.

Great Energy

It is thought that the source of all information, the "Great Energy" is the totality of information and is believed to be not a kami, but can be likened to the totality of all matter in the universe. This Great Energy is not worshiped because it is believed it has no will of its own and makes no decisions. It is acknowledged as something that can be comparable to the monotheistic "God".

The Great Energy is called so because in Johodo, a change in information is a change in energy, so they are likened to each other proportionally.

Other Universes

It is believed that other universes are non-existent because we cannot gain any information about them. Doing the thought experiment with Schrodinger's Cat in the eyes of Johodo will reveal that the cat does not exist, not that it exists in multiple states at once. The cat is thought to exist in another universe until we open the container and find out if it is dead or not.

Politics

Johodo has ideas about what the ideal government would possess. Their are examples in the Utria Mythos of nations that drift from this ideal for more realistic approaches, as well as the potential castes that may form later on in the future of Johodo.

Johodo has the idea that a perfect government would be run by craftsmen and philosophers who could appeal to a small group of people and become elected as their representative, called a "Jarl", to enact policies. The government would have at least one branch of government, possibly three others, which would be hierarchical elective in nature composed of direct democracy of the supermajority. This means that everyday citizens of an area elect people who could potentially go higher in government rank. However, such person needs to now convince his peers on that tier that he is qualified to be their representative as well. This goes on until someone is chosen as the head leader of the government branch. The economic system advocated would be "productionist" or distributist in nature, forming guilds of all practices which share property amongst themselves and value income over wealth. Johodo does not believe that anybody deserves anything, and thus does not recognize inalienable rights. Rather it uses contract law, often social contract, in order to protect people. Currency would be based on a food, fuel, or other storage of energy that is renewable and there is thoughts of a hypothetical currency valued on a continuous flow, or income, of the material rather than a quantity of wealth. Johodo does advocates for neither capitalism nor socialism, believing that the idea that these are the only possibilities is a false dichotomy.

Johodo desires policies that bring harmony with humans and non-humans alike, preservation of life unless attacked, prevention of mass hysteria, advancement of science and discoveries, prevention of monopolies, and the prevention of servitude, whether by force, debt, or otherwise.

Code of Morals and Ethics

Johodo has the basic idea that suffering comes from doubt or uncertainty. It can lead to fear of the unknown and hate of those different. It is then one's duty to rid oneself of uncertainty and gain as much information as possible.

Johodo finds that working in groups is more advantageous than working alone and is thought this can be better achieved with the White Rule, "give more than what gained and take less than what lost". Johodo does not believe that love is the ultimate truth to morality as no other animal but homo sapiens can fully express that emotion. Johodo does not believe that emotions lead to the truth of the universe but rather allow one to cooperate in a community. Good and bad are thought of as the difference between giving and taking information.

In Johodo there is a code of rules that when followed give honor to the individual. Though the code may be different for different species or different groups of people, it should be made to give the follower of the code the best advantage to gaining information. The current Gaterakt Code is about 500 laws long without any declaration of what punishments are to be done for breaking a specific law, deemed to be up to the local leader of the community that follows the code. In the code lies laws concerning many different facets of the life of a homo sapien, such as converting others, types of people, temple construction, rituals, clothing, relations, diet, ethics, farming, and units of measure. Probably the number one conflicting law with modern western society is the banning of eating pork, for it is seen as coming from a kind that consumes humans. Although all the laws have not been fully carried out due to lack of believers, it is still upheld by the few people that follow the code.
