We live in a time when information is available anytime, anywhere and decisions are made on a data-driven basis. At the same time, the world is becoming ever more complex and knowledge ever greater. Defamation, language abuse and disinformation are spreading faster and faster via social media, while conspiracy theories are destroying any trust in existing social structures and even in science. So-called alternative facts are increasingly conquering the power of interpretation, replacing complexity with the image of a brave new, hermetically sealed world, divided into people inside and everyone else outside.
What Wikipedia is for knowledge, schimba is for understanding. Schimba transcends the information level through meaning, logic and interaction. Discussions can be conducted and documented on the basis of facts, arguments and votes. These serve as a basis for future discussions in which arguments can be reused. As the number of discussions increases, a whole network of intertwined statements emerges. The mere existence of such a network will prove the integrity of all arguments, discussions and underlying values and may lead to a new level of knowledge, understanding and global awareness.
