of diagrams have been drawn using those formalisms at various sites. Yet there is no way for us to know what has been created from MERA and no way to reuse the formalism and diagrams.
Today, the Internet presents an excellent opportunity to connect up hundreds of MERA users worldwide. The next addition to the language feature should be a mechanism for collecting, using, and maintaining the MERA diagrams created by worldwide users. The uniform language will surely to be useful in supporting communication among international users with diverse backgrounds.
