Subject Re: [Cava] Suitable name search
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2019 20:03:58 GMT
I would like to suggest “Jal”, in reference to Indra’s net (or Indra jal) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indra%27s_net

From the link:
"Imagine a multidimensional spider's web in the early morning covered with dew drops. And
every dew drop contains the reflection of all the other dew drops. 
And, in each reflected dew drop, the reflections of all the other dew drops in that reflection.
And so ad infinitum. That is the Buddhist conception of the universe in an image." –Alan
Watts[1]

And for what it is worth, it is the ultimate connected chain or graph (

    Hello all,
    
    As discussed previously, Cava is not a proper name for the proposal discussed last week
on this list and published to the wiki [0].
    
    I humbly would like to ask the community for feedback and proposals on a suitable name
for this proposal, in line with the guidelines [1].
    
    In preparation for this search, I have put together a list of names:
    
    - Rainbow (after the name of my kid’s favorite toy, and in line with the crypto community
unicorn punk theme [2].
    - Winch (a mechanical device used to wind up or wind out wires (Wikipedia) , in the chain
theme)
    - Sprocket (a profiled wheel with teeth, or cogs, that mesh with a chain, track or other
perforated or indented material. (Wikipedia), in the chain theme as well)
    
    I have researched those names lightly and I have not seen them used heavily by an open
source project in crypto. I followed the guidelines to search across different open source
communities.
    
    Please provide your own proposal and let’s work together towards a rough consensus.
If one of the proposals above registers, please let us know as well.
    
    Cheers,
    
    Antoine
