I literally woke up in the middle of the night with a simple thought in my head. I believe it was back in 2007.
However cliché it might sound… i wrote the words “Social horoscopes” on a post-it note and left it on my desk.
Apparently it got lost among hundreds of post-its on my desk…
You see my beloved and long gone father used to work for the company which invented post-its… so I practically grew up in abundance of those square little blocks of paper in all kinds of colours, sizes and shapes… writing down thoughts, to-do’s, all kinds of silly, angry, happy, full of love or hate messages between my sister, mother, father or neighbours… we used them for playing, creating, annoying, teasing… they were all a big part of me…
Now a single one of them had captured what proved to be one of the single biggest challenges and dreams of mine.
Could I find a way to challenge something that has been going on for hundreds of years, to radically change it, to re-invent it and make it relevant again through a new point of view?.
After about a year and a half I bumped into that yellow piece of sticky paper again… since then I’ve been trying to crack what could be hidden behind it.
Finally today I can share it openly with everyone!
So here it goes… I hope you find it as intriguing and interesting as much as I do!
Do you check your horoscope regularly?
Its crazy how a few words can really change the way you feel about the day you have in front of you.
It can fill you up with energy, cheer you up, help you finally take that decision that’s been making you twist for hours in your bed.
But how personal can these readings be after all?
Hm.. Let’s see:
There are 12 signs according to western astrology… So I belong to one of them.
Does this mean that I am just like one twelveth of the human population…
Today we’re about 7billion people on earth… so there’s about 583 million of ‘me’ out there!
What about people with access to the internet?
According to internetworldstats.com there’s about 2,3 billion of people online!
So there must be about 190 million of ‘me’ online… 190 million Pisces!
Why stop there though? Why accept and read the same horoscope as people born about a month around my birthday and believe its all about me?
What if this split in 12 generic groups was because of limitations back then when it was all figured out… just because it was all done manually in absence of technology?
What if I could connect to only those that were born on the exact same day as me!? There must be thousands around the world…
So ‘being connected to those persons from around the world who were actually born on the same day as me’ is the simple secret behind feelzr!
Think about this for a moment: …the fact that time zeroes out at 23:59, or the fact that people have invented CET, GMT, EST and so on… are just man made tricks so that we are all able to coordinate between us… so that our clocks are not some kind of 3D-spiral-complicated-huge-battery-consuming-computers… and instead they’re simply counters that zero out every day and start over again…
The reality is that a person born 7 hours ago in Tokyo, Japan… and a person born now in Athens, Greece … have actually been born on almost the exact same moment… in relation to the universe…. Both were born on the same “Local - to each country - Time and Date”, although 7 hours apart if you observe both births consecutively.
(yes you can read this paragraph one more time… no one is watching :)
So the person in Tokyo is in the “relative future” of the person in Athens.
Now take one thousand of persons to the East of the person in Athens… collect their feelings and the words they use to describe them in the hours between lets say 4 and 6 in the afternoon…. now show them to the Athenian… while its still 11 o’clock in the morning of the same day…
That’s a very personal prediction coming from the people born on the same day as you! Ain’t that cool! :) And its all for free ! Paid personal astrology readings no more!
Every single one of us has people born on the same day as them to their East and to their West… the earth is round after all…
You share your feelings with the people to your relative past… and receive your predictions from the people in your relative future.
Its quite a challenge to explain… but if you read this far I can only hope you got it…
In order to launch the app we need to feed it with feelings
… and to feed it with feelings… we need people born on the same day…
