Everyone has a story to tell, but not everyone can tell it. Sometimes you don’t know how to start, sometimes you don’t know what to add, and sometimes you don’t even know that you have a story. These barriers that keep us from unleashing our storytelling potential are shattered by the newest addition to Nimses. The Showcast. It opens a new world of possibilities in how you, alongside others, can share your story.

Nimses Showcast is a geo-based story-telling pool.

Stories often have more than one side to them, especially when more people are involved. The more perspectives we can see, the more vibrant and complete a story becomes. Most conventional story-telling platforms are uni-directional. They only allow stories to be told from one perspective, with no input from spectators. Showcast completely changes that. Anyone with a story can start their own Showcast, and anyone who wants to add their own part, are free to do so. As more people add their episodes, the story develops further. …


Humanity is trapped in a state of constant search. Every single one of us is looking for something: a purpose, a sense of unconditional love, a higher meaning. We crave that. If we never searched for ways to survive, adapt and evolve, then, perhaps, we would have never developed past our Australopithecine selves.

Nimses is a form of searching. Thus — surviving, adapting, and evolving. Access to this form is open via the Nimses app. The app is merely one of many manifestations of Nimses’ presence, and by far, not the most significant one. Surely an app is the most apparent form of what Nimses is; however, simplifying Nimses to a mere app is synonymous to equating a debit card with the bank issuing it. Nimses is an intricate social and economic ecosystem, and naturally, it was only a matter of time before several myths have sprouted around it. …

It’s very natural to want status, class and fame. Some prominent ideologies even present these concepts as harmful, both to society and to ourselves. But, for good or for worse, they’re not going away. For many of us, it’s the reason we get up in the morning, notwithstanding that most would be ashamed to say that out loud.

For example, in Britain, the class system is so deeply ingrained in the national psyche, it informs choices in every part of public life. Rejecting one’s social status, arguing with the injustice of it, expressing public shame or personal joy, clinging onto class with every essence of our being or throwing it away in a single breath: it’s become a national past-time, a kind of unfunny circus. …

Banks keep our money. Financial services manage our assets. Tax authorities incur compulsory fees. This is known to everyone. No need to look deeper. After all, smart people in suits make those decisions for us. They raise income tax to increase their revenue. They don’t spend on public services, and pour money earned by the everyman into upholding bureaucratic systems or filling their own pockets. Our response: let’s not think about it, it’s too complicated.

We only think about justice when we ourselves have been wronged. Economic crises often pose the greatest difficulties for any country and for all of its inhabitants. Especially for taxpayers. In an economic environment traumatized by recent financial crises, the taxpayer or bank customer is left asking: am I getting a good deal? …

“Everybody wants to be somebody.” (Damian Marley)

“I sometimes wonder if it’s true, that who is what and what is who.” (Winnie-the-Pooh)

Who am I? Who do I want to be? Who am I expected to be? Who do I appear to be? The answers to all these questions are endless. Or are they?

Any particular society, cultural era, or subcultural trend contains an exhaustive list of identities. The list is, first and foremost, limited and defined by language, traditions and laws. Many categories from that list end up becoming deeply rooted in our actual personalities. From this list, emerges a range of identities: “I am a mother/father/sister/brother.”, “I am a citizen of the US/Canada/Ukraine.”, “I am a farmer/blogger/lawyer/influencer.”, “I am a lord/king/prince.”, …

How does this work?

Nimses is a global economic ecosystem built upon the absolute value of human time. It is a unified system of accounting for all of the time of living human beings, to be precise. To become a member of this economy, I have to register: this is a standard economic procedure. For example, in the old days, for me to be taken into account by society, the city council, tax officials, kindergarten or at the workplace I would have to show documents to prove I exist: my passport, my birth certificate, official ID etc. At Nimses the procedure is much simpler, but the principle is the same. …

Looking at our phone screens we can see; traffic jams, follow public transport schedules, travel, book accommodations, order food, call a taxi, find new places, events and even each other. Despite conspiracy theories, paranoia, and the delusion of being watched, geodata has significantly simplified our lives.

Each person performs dozens of essential actions everyday using their geodata.

A phone has no borders, customs or passport control. So people become citizens of the world without a special passport. Going online turns our planet into one big city. Nimses simply divides this city into Temples.

What is a Temple?

First of all, a Temple is a space. Geographically fixed and bound by coordinates. One can be here on a real-time basis and on a virtual basis at the same time. One can communicate, see, speak, meet, move. All the inhabitants of our planet live in Temples. These are districts within the global city we know as “Earth”. …

Major social media platforms have become a place of mistrust. This mistrust is top-down more than it is peer-to-peer. Silicon Valley fears and mistrusts the behavior of the average user more than average users fear each other. Silicon Valley, under government pressure, has rightfully begun taking more responsibility for the kind of content that appears on their platforms. However, in this noble gesture, the elitism of the system is apparent.

A centralised monitoring system suggests that: the public that cannot be trusted, the public is gullible, the public creates and shares fake news and cannot discern between legitimate and inappropriate content. …


“In the beginning was the Word.” (John 1:1)

Our blinking and mind-teasing hardly indulge us to turn to the philosophical idea of the Logos on a daily basis. We are quite used to expressing ourselves by means of hollow words, oversaturated metaphors and reduced communicative formulas, akin to memes and emojis. We often find ourselves barehanded without in-app messenger stickers and gifs. Words don’t come easily to us. And those that do come, appear to be somehow insufficient. Now, words are only needed when photos or videos don’t suffice. …

The days of the gold standard are long gone. Even paper money, originally invented as a kind of promise, is starting to disappear more and more from our plastic-filled wallets. We don’t need paper promises anymore. We simply need digits with value, that we all agree upon.

Swipe your phone over a card terminal to buy a coffee, and the digits in your account change. The digits in the merchant’s account change too. That’s all. As long as we agree on the number, that’s all it will ever be: a number.

For many this is terrifying. The global economy is now so far removed from our original idea of value. Indeed, it has been for decades. Neither land, oil, gold or grain determine wealth anymore. We seem to be floating above the Earth, spending our days trading skills and services, far flung from solid tangible commodities. Yet, is it right to measure the worth of a designer, insurance broker, coder or lawyer rooted in the value beneath our feet? Perhaps a new value should find its root, not in what the earth can offer to us, but we can offer to each other. …
