Generally:

    * you will be able to solve storage problems
    * you will gain ability to acess any sort of stuff you need wherever (via 🔗vaults, etc)

    * whether you are staying settled, or going fully nomadic
    * whether you're keeping your current place, or letting it go
    * whether there are already comrades nearby your location

non-physical:
    * Totalism.org infrastructure
    * network of people (manifesting in specific ways)
    * [...]





*** MUTUALISING !

Sharing material objects !

All stuff is added to a common inventory.



OBJECT CATEGORIES

By the way:
    ÷ = alt gr + key after "P"


    [ ÷/ ] TRUE PERSONAL

Aka "not sensibly shareable".

Due to:
    * hygiene:
        ("toothbrush", "contact lenses")
    * extreme high risk of breakage:
        (personal glasses)
    * low value and high general availability:
        (socks)
    * sentimentality + extreme specificity:
        (favorite teddy bear, friendship bracelet, ...)
    * sentimentality + extreme value:
        ("grandmother's engagement ring")
    * perfect personal fit:
        ("stylish sunglasses")
    * valuable within personal context:
        "private documents and personal archives"
        ### this could be reconsidered 



    [ ÷~ ] QUIRKY

Could be common.
But, "quirky", less attractive to share.

personal computers
↓ specialized machinery that may break at any moment
special / personal tools
↓ unfinished random projects
uniquely broken stuff only you might have an idea how to fix, while others would have a too-hard time to make it worthwhile



    [ ÷÷! ] AVAILABLE WITH STRICT CONDITIONS

Sharing conditions specified.
Responsibility taken care of by general CoCo agreements.

↓ electric guitars
↓ complex, uncommon tools



    [ ÷÷÷ ] AVAILABLE

Objects that make sense to commonize.

Typical:
    * use familiarity
    * higher value
    * lower chances of breakage

↓ standard tools
↓ standard studio equipment
↓ books

To make it more shareable:
    * sort separate when in storage
    * document usage & state
    * actuvely encourage others to use it




    [ ÷÷÷÷ ] FULLY COMMONIZED

Already moved & made commonly available (= stored in a Hackbase, or a Vault).
Ideally, a good object of its kind.

↓ most CHT property
↓ digital archives (media, data)

CHT example → 🔗stuff

*** PAD


[!!] research: REPAIR ANALYSIS

:
    when to repair things?
    when to throw things away?
    how to deal with time/depreciation?
    who is responsible for their breaking (in different types of situations)?

see:
    * 🔗ordering/grievances
    * https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Level_of_Repair_Analysis
    * [...]




[!!] research: OBJECT ATTRIBUTES

Attributes of tools / objects ...

[!!] research: capitalist objects VS proletarian objects

"design = making capitalist objects"
### my tweet

DISSOLUTION ASPECTS

### → XXX🔗postmarket-dissolution

* Simplified by storing at their location:
    "your ice cream machine is stored at your place, so if you dissolute, it's already where it needs to be"

* Status must be clear at all times for all objects "laying around"



Pattern: DE-SPECIFICICATION OF OBJECTS

Like ...
:
    * "My book has personal annotations, so it's difficult for me to share it"
    * "My room has nice posters in it, so I wouldn't like to leave my home"
    * "I have specific settings on my amplifier, so people will just mess them up"


Dealing with this ...
:
    * Digitize all that can be !
    * Become less sentimental !
    * Transcend privacy, sift out the rest !
    * Note down the settings & make them perfectly (and measurably) reconstructable!
