What can one say about developing the religion where the ultimate organising principle is not one derived from the divine inspiration but instead, relies on the wisdom and the contribution of the masses? That it openly militiates against the notion of the omnipotence? Or , that it tacitly underscores the importance of human divinity? In the field of computer programming the concept is not new. It's called open source design where the source code of the software is made available to the general public with the either relaxed or non-existent intellectual property restrictions. This allows user to create self generated content through individual effort, or collaboration. The result is the meritocratic system-in one case at least-has been the operating system Linux.
