Permanent Integer ID Numbers are based on the patent on a permanent software ("Completely Automated And Self-generating Software System" Pat. No. 5,485,601), which enables its users to remember and retrieve an unlimited amount of information. Permanent Integer ID Numbers or Universal Permanent Numbers (covering infinite space and time) or Permanent Numbers (PN) are simply internationally unique numerical names given to entities with long useful or permanent lives, such as land, knowledge, including particularly DNA. They will be remembered by computers running the Permanent Software. Giving distinct names to information is one of the first steps in the organization of information for, say, directory search. Here, the intellectual properties of Permanent Integer ID Numbers are treated exactly like real properties, which can be sold or leased by their owners. Permanent Integer ID Numbers can be leased or bought by individuals or organizations from the company of the same name, Permanent Integer ID Number, Inc. which has created and, therefore, owns all the Permanent Integer ID Numbers, initially.
The purpose of a Permanent Integer ID Number is to give any tangible or intangible entities international distinct identification numbers. All the Permanent Integer ID Numbers are integers, both positive and negative. The price or the rent for Permanent Integer ID Numbers depends on the quantity and the number of digits of the Permanent Integer ID Numbers sold or leased, respectively. Usually, the lower the number of digits, the costlier the Permanent Integer ID Number. Just like real estate, the ownership of Permanent Integer ID Numbers can be transferred after the transfer of the deed of ownership, which should be recorded with Permanent Integer ID Number Inc. in order to retain the uniqueness of the Permanent Integer ID Numbers.
Information can come in all shapes and forms. Just the variations of all the international languages and multimedia are enough to challenge the developers of search engines. Permanent Integer ID Numbers can represent any type of information. The main reasons for giving integer names to entities, as in Permanent Integer ID Numbers and Permanent Software, are that (1) Integers can be considered to be the native language of computers or machines, (2) Numbers can be considered an international language, (3) The number of integers is virtually unlimited, and (4) the Permanent Software is designed to handle an unlimited amount of information by making the computer to remember all the integers which represent the information.
Most of today's popular search engines are designed for searching key words. They are designed to function under the condition where information is largely disorganized. Additionally, similar to the comparison between the Numbered Windows of the Permanent Software and the popular MS Windows without the Numbers in front of the choices to be clicked, the key-words search engines tries to please the user without concern for the long-term consequences. The search process can be improved when some effort is put into the organization of information. In fact, information organization is the only choice in the point of view of permanence, which is also the view of Post-Science Institute.
Organized information can be efficiently searched by Directory search engines resulting in less but more relevant information. Permanent Integer ID Number should greatly enhance Directory search by simplify the submission and retrieving processes with generally no verbal description necessary. A great many number systems are already in used, such as the Social Security Numbers, Diver's License Numbers, etc., but the technology to handle an unlimited number of integer representations resides in the Permanent Software. In particular, the updating of the categories in the Directory search can be automated by the Permanent Software, which provides the justification for the creation of Permanent Integer ID Numbers.
This Business Plan describes a new company, Permanent Integer ID Numbers (PIDN), which will design and sell permanent numbers based on the patent on a permanent software ("Completely Automated And Self-generating Software System" Pat. No. 5,485,601) for $1.00 per number, not including development cost, whose estimation will be provided before purchase the permanent numbers. The Permanent Integer ID Numbers and its identified contents will be stored in a Permanent Database which can be constructed based on the same innovations used in the permanent software. The new company will be financed by Post-Science Institute, which holds the above patent. A permanent number system is a necessary part of a search engine for the mechanical retrieval and completely automatic manipulation of an unlimited amount of information. The permanent numbers can be described by the following basic principles:
(1) Integer numbers are the only universal (and international) language, even for machines.
(2) The native language for machines is logic, which can be expressed by integer numbers.
(3) Machines (computers) must be used to remember an unlimited amount of information, each piece of which is identified by a permanent number for automatic handling by machines (2).
(4) The human associative memory can access unlimited amount of information arranged in a numerical multiple-choice, tree-structured question format (the Universal User Interface).
(5) The meaning of each permanent number is remembered by the machine by including the permanent number in the record in which the meaning is stored (Reference: Patent "Completely Automated And Self-generating Software System" Pat. No. 5,485,601).
(6) Information must be able to be searched by subjects, not just (and including) title, author, keywords, or any serial numbers, including the permanent numbers.
(7) Information must be able to be automatically updated from one arrangement (a distinct search system based on the Universal User Interface) to another.
(8) The permanent numbers must be standardized by one source, which currently can only be the inventor of the permanent numbers, Permanent Integer ID Numbers.
(9) Applications of the permanent numbers: a. Transportation (Permanent Product Numbers); b. Library Search Systems (books, Journals, articles, etc.); c. Graphical Database (based on Homotopy Theory); d. Encryption System (SSS scramble/de-scramble (key/lock) generators); e Programming Language for All (PLA) (where the permanent numbers will represent instructions to the computer); f. Dictionaries (words for all the international languages); g. Social Security Numbers; h. Census figures (population); i. Ships; j. Real estates; k. Animals (species) ; l. Plants; m. Insects; n. Heavenly bodies (Stars, planets, etc.)

Permanent Integer ID Numbers Most Frequent Questions (MFQ)
1. Why do we need Permanent Integer ID Numbers ?
Answer: Permanent Integer ID Numbers are permanent names, which uniquely identifies individuals, products, services, or other items with long-lives. They are more reliable and more long-lasting, potentially to infinity, than ordinary names because they are based on the patented Permanent Software, which can manage an unlimited amount of Permanent Integer ID Numbers.
2. Can any organization issue Permanent Integer ID Numbers ?
Answer: No. Permanent Integer ID Numbers are a natural concept needed for organizing an unlimited amount of information and must be accompanied by the technology which can handle an unlimited amount of numbers. There should only be one single source for issuing Permanent Integer ID Numbers, so that a number can uniquely identify a distinct entity without conflict. The technology needed in the issuance of Permanent Integer ID Numbers is Permanent Software, which can retrieve an unlimited amount of information, without the user having to remember the addresses or the locations where the information is stored. Permanent Integer ID Numbers will initially compete with temporary numbers, which, however, will have temporary existence.
3. What is the charge for Permanent Integer ID Numbers ?
Answer: Generally, $1.00 (one US dollar) per Number, but the minimum order is $1,000.00. Buyers can buy through their clubs or can form a Permanent Integer ID Number Club of 1000 members of more to buy collectively. Also Vanity Permanent Integer ID Numbers are available as shown below for short and easy to remember Permanent Integer ID Numbers. If management of the Permanent Integer ID Numbers are needed, the buyers of Permanent Numbers pay for all the cost of installation of the Permanent Integer ID Numbers in addition to the one dollar per number per year. The cost of installation can be from nothing to as much as the buyer wants depending on the sophistication of the installation. And there is an overhead up to and not to exceed 100% to be charged by Permanent Integer ID Number (PIDN) in order to duplicate the installation at Permanent Integer ID Number, Inc.
4. Are there discounts for volume purchase or to non-profit organizations ?
Answer: Yes, but the installation cost cannot be discounted. For example, discounts apply to large volume of books and to educational organizations.
5. How many Permanent Numbers potentially exist ?
Answer: Just the number of encryption keys can easily exceed a trillion numbers (10 to the power of 12). The number of stars is another few billions. The initial issuance of Permanent Numbers is set at 10 to the power of 20 with most of the significant numbers within 10 to the power of 10.
6. What are the advantages of Permanent Integer ID Numbers ?
Answer: The creation of Permanent Numbers is the first step for mankind to organize its growing information data base by giving the information unique and permanent names. A Permanent Integer ID gives a permanent entity, or a long-lived temporary one, a permanent unique identity with a distinct numerical name which can be automatically manipulated by the computer and is accepted internationally, or even universally, theoretically, to infinity in time. The first four Permanent Numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4, therefore, are reserved for the four distinct elements of DNA.
7. What is Permanent Integer ID, Inc. ?
Answer: Permanent Integer ID, Inc. (http://permanetidnumber.com) is a subsidiary of Post-Science Institute (http://post-science.com) which holds the patent to the Permanent Software.
Permanent Integer ID Numbers or Permanent Numbers (PN) can also be used for naming all the entities with long useful lives, such as people, products and services, books, etc. T commercialization of Permanent Integer ID Numbers plays only a secondary role to its essential place in the management of knowledge. However, due to its nature of being unlimited and monopolistic, the commercial venture should become one of the first trillion dollar businesses dealing with complete automation, which is necessary to treat quantities of unlimited size, such as Permanent Integer ID Numbers.
The Permanent Software can make Permanent Integer ID Numbers "permanently" invisible to the user. Permanent Integer ID Numbers are created to represent and replace all the possible technical barriers between the computer and the user. When it is made invisible to the user, as the bar code, any Permanent Integer ID Number is equivalent to any other Permanent Integer ID Number and, thus, might as well be made to be permanent.
Permanent Integer ID Numbers are made invisible to the user through the Permanent Software, which has eliminated all the technical barrier in computer usage by its Universal User Interface and by its capabilities of self-generation, auto-updating, and auto-documentation. The Universal User Interface, which employs the advantage of the human associative memory, allows the user to access an unlimited amount of information, as in the computerized library search system, by going down a tree-structured hierarchy of associated items. The following Table summarizes the three functions needed in order to shield the Permanent Integer ID Numbers, which replace all the technical barriers, including the native human language, particularly, English, from the computer user.
Table: The Three Main Functions To Make Permanent Integer ID Numbers (123) Invisible To The User
Program Generation in Permanent Software . . . Example in Web Terminology
(1) Go to the Address 123 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . http://126.96.36.199/123.html
(2) Display content at the Address 123 . . . Permanent Integer ID Numbers One-Page Explanation . . .
(3) Generate the instruction GOTO 123 in (1) . . . Generate "http://188.8.131.52/123.html" without knowing 123
In (3) above, the Address or the statement label is 123. The "http://184.108.40.206/123.html" generating statement looks like:
123: PERMANENTIDNUMBER=123: IF FLAGFORGENERATION=ON THEN GENERATESTATEMENT=" http://220.127.116.11/"+PERMANETIDNUMBER+".html" ELSE GENERATESTATEMENT ="Permanent Integer ID Numbers One-Page Explanation . . ."
where the FLAGFORGENERATION is set to be ON first before going down the tree-structure hierarchy, if the statement generating statement is to be generated, instead of just the statement to be generated. The purposely inclusion of the statement PERMANENTIDNUMBER=123 in the generating statement at Address 123 is one of the main innovations of the permanent Software. The Permanent Integer ID Numbers123 is remembered by the computer in cooperation with the human associate memory, which has been given to humans "purposely" by nature in order to allow humans to access an unlimited amount of information.
In conclusion, Permanent Integer ID Numbers are permanent, universal, and distinct numerical integer names, which are invisible to users when they are managed by the Permanent Software. Post-Science Institute is the creator of all the Permanent Integer ID Numbers, which extend the application of the Permanent Software. It has the responsibility of making sure that each Permanent Integer ID Numbers is issued just once so that there will be on conflict of Permanent Integer ID Numbers.
Ultimately, Permanent Integer ID Numbers should be the rational destinations of search engines because these Numbers offer distinct and permanent Identities for all the entities which can be searched. Post-Science Institute would like to make the following offer to all the search engine developers:
(1) Develop a search site where the submission is based on Permanent Integer ID Numbers.
(2) Develop a search engine which searches mainly for Permanent Integer ID Numbers (The search takes two stages: 1. The First Stage: Search Keywords to get all the related Permanent Integer ID Numbers, and 2. The Second Stage: Search the Permanent Integer ID Numbers to locate a manageable number (<100) of items for each Permanent Integer ID Numbers. The Permanent Integer ID Numbers are submitted with a manageable number of items)
(3) If you do (1) and (2) above, Post-Science Institute can offer you a high-commission non-exclusive agency for selling Permanent Integer ID Numbers (Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org).
At the DNA level, life functions as machines. In order to communicate with machines, we need integers, because machines communicate in integers. Each codon of DNA can be represented by a three-digits integer with a base of four. Permanent Integer ID Numbers are integers, which can be considered the native language of computers, as Intel machine instructions are the native language of the Intel computer, and English is the native language of Americans. These Integer ID Numbers are designed as distinct permanent names for permanent entities, mainly, knowledge. They can also be used for any tangible or intangible entities with long useful lives, such as people. Permanent Integer ID Numbers are intended to be managed by the Permanent Software, which has eliminated all the technical barriers between the computer and its user. Thus, Permanent Integer ID Numbers allow all the technical barriers to computer usage to be replaced with integers, which are made "permanently invisible" to the computer user by the Permanent Software.
In the beginning, computer science is far more friendly to the computer than to the user. The first-generation of computer scientists make their living on the technical barriers in computer usage. The second-generation makes enormous profits by breaking down the barriers erected by the first generation and demonstrates the power of near complete automation. Today, the business competition is in who can make the computer friendly, or give instant gratification, to the user, regardless to the long-term consequences. Post-Science Institute believes that there is a mIDdle ground between being friendly to the user and to the computer. The Permanent Software balances the friendliness to the two parties, namely, the computer and the user, to achieve complete automation and permanence. Permanent Integer ID Numbers allows the computer to operate in its native environment, which is also livable for the user.
Conceptually, all the Permanent Integer ID Numbers are created equal, and its number is unlimited; they should not have (internal) meanings, except the entities they represent. Therefore, there is no need to have different sets of Integer ID Numbers, such as ISBN, ISSN, Social Security Numbers, Driver's License Numbers, product numbers, charge card numbers, etc. One bar code scanner or one web search engine for Permanent Integer ID Numbers should be sufficient for all the need of reading all the Integer ID Numbers, each of which is unique. Furthermore, we don't need hundred thousands of search results from searches based on keywords. The search by Permanent Integer ID Numbers will produce no more than hundreds of results, and the Permanent Integer ID Numbers, in turn, can be obtained from pre-organized directory searches.
When the number of Permanent Integer ID Numbers becomes too large for human beings to remember or keywords search engines to find, the Permanent Software will remember and manage them automatically. The ability to handle an unlimited amount of information, or of Permanent Integer ID Numbers, is a requirement in the ultimate development of DNA, which represents the infinite wisdom of the universe accumulated from the infinite past and must have be distilled from a pool of unlimited amount of choices.
