From Socrates to now, conversation is the most basic unit of understanding. Conversation allows us to see the world from different perspectives and foster understanding between people from all different walks of life. Optimum Institute is an online academic community designed around conversation. Our members have at least one video-chat conversation at least once per week, with at least one other member to talk about, "life, the Universe & everything".
After one year of membership, members of the Optimum Institute can have a conversation with our full-time staff to gain their Optimum Certification making them a Certified Optimist™ :-) We are the only institute that certifies optimists; our certification is non-transferable and only has the weight and value that you put into it, but maybe that's enough! We are optimists after all! Before deciding to join feel free to read our FAQ, or contact us using the contact bar at the bottom of this page.
We welcome you to join the Optimum Institute, called one of the world's most innovative online academic communities & the first to complete Albert Einstein's work by unifying physics. Maybe that's why we were liked by Apple co-founder Steve "Woz" Wozniak, Stephen Wolfram of Wolfram Alpha & Andrew Yang among others.
Our mission at the Optimum Institute is to help you optimize your happiness, health, understanding and success through conversation, community and self directed study.
The Theory of Everything is our 2+ hour "video-textbook" available exclusively for our members and presenting our members work so far. More than just the first to unify physics, our theory of everything is an exploration of all material reality starting from unified physics, to emergent self replicating systems, consciousness and A.I, socio-economic systems, to the potential futures of humanity and everything in-between. Our members are never required to agree with our theory of everything, but may always use it as a launch pad for conversation even if only to disagree.
