I have been a so-called "active" spiritual seeker for the past 10 years or so. I have compulsively read tens of spiritual books and collected
hundreds of spiritual quotations. This web site is a place for me to share with you some of my favorites.
But it is also a place for YOU to share with the world your favorites. Actually, my vision is to bring tens or even
maybe hundreds of spiritual seekers to use this place to share with other spiritual seekers their favorite spiritual quotes, books, movies
and more. For instance, I am wondering, are there many other people like me who, when they read a good spiritual book, like to underline or even
note somewhere some of their favorite passages? Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a place for all of us to share our favorites?
Now we have one.
But my vision goes further than that.
I felt drawn to include a rating system on the site, allowing people to voice their opinion about a quote or book or anything else on the site
simply with a number from one to ten. I thought that would be great to find out this way what are the most appreciated spiritual "resources".
But I also felt a little uneasy about the common rating system and it's usefullness. Let me explain why.
There are as many spiritual paths as there are spiritual seekers, and chances are that by averaging
all ratings from all participating members, the "highest rated" books or quotes or movies aren't
likely matching your or any other individual member's interests. They are just an average. The ratings
would be much more significant for YOU if the ratings from all the members who are "incompatible" with you would not be
counted in the average.
I liked the idea so I came up with a way (an algorithm) to implement it,
to "filter" from your experience of this site all the ratings from members who are deemed "incompatible" with you.
An incompatible member is someone with a rating pattern very different from yours. Typically, what you rate high they rate
low, and what you rate low they rate high...
But to find out who is incompatible with you, the system has to know a little about you and it does it through your ratings.
So all you have to do is rate a few quotes and/or books and/or movies and let the system do its magic overnight (the algorithm
is using quite a bit of computer resources so it makes sense to run it when the traffic on the site is low).
When you'll come back tomorrow or anytime after, the highest rated items should match more closely your interests.
In addition to that, if you happen to have a "rating pattern" similar to the one of other member(s), then the system will let you
know and allow you to browse this or those other member(s) ratings.
