Don’t we all use this to suggest new stuff to buy?

Don’t we all use this to suggest new stuff to buy? Don’t we all use this to give you a better “feed” of whatever we’re pushing out as “content”? Don’t we use this to know in advance where you’ll be or what movie to watch? Don’t we use this to try and forecast finances?

The problem with supervised learning is the data sets. The problem is twofold:

  • where do you get all that data?
  • do you know what you want?

The use of the ML platforms of today I think, is more of the way alpha versions or developer preview versions work, to test the stuff and see what can be done with it, because we either know what to do with ML but it can’t do it yet, or we don’t know what ML can do for us.

Then there is also the business problem. For small companies ML in its current capability range doesn’t give much of a return. Small dents in some metrics, maybe. It works wonders for some giants but not for small and medium players.

Then, there is also the farther future, who will be the winning platform? Because ML and AI (not SAI) will be a service, you will not get it as a stand alone system because as the tech is now it is at the stage of the original IBM room sized computers. So when performance and optimization and the combination of algorithms will be good enough to be used by the mass markets some of the platforms you enumerated will get the crown jewels: subscriptions by the millions, some will get the next best thing, enterprise data input and some will get the stick and get wound down.

Yes to your entire thought line.

Yes to your entire thought line. It is so rarely that I, at least, get to read something that doesn’t strike me as too polished to be authentic, to impartial to have meaning, too biased to be trustworthy.

Dominique Matti thank you for explaining how it works. I am quoting these for people who will see this reply first instead of your article, which everyone should spend their four minutes on:

when Obama was elected president, […] every bit of my being believed he was going to fix the world. […] But today — on the cusp of another candidate’s reign — I see him speak, and I feel different, disenchanted.
[Bernie’s supporters] protest into the void where most American discontent goes.
Bernie was never going to bring about a revolution.
What I’ve learned in the last 8 years, through time and constant collective trauma, is that no revolution or dramatic change will come from inside of our system.
they shout at the system for being itself. They still expect it to give them everything that it promised them.
I’m still voting, in the same way I pray on the slim chance of Heaven
[But] If we want change, we must elect ourselves to make it.

This should be made into a freakin’ poem. An action plan. A poster to splatter cities with there in the US where elections affect the entire planet, but strip away Obama and it fits in any “modern, free, democratic” country of today.

Great work and thank you 🙂

Yet another revolution

maybe I am not allowed to use this image …

It is the time of doers, it’s gonna take a while for the age of thinkers to come again. Every success story today is more about accomplishing what we call “wealth creation”, and less about what we call “good creation”.

Sure, maybe you are one who thinks that today is everything, that we are at some peak, unable to fall, or one who dwells passively in the sweet illusion of future prosperity, prosperity brought about by the fresh new princes of the world, or hey, maybe you are one who believes in basic income — to any of which I say, maybe.

I know that wealth creation has been here before. I also know that the antithesis of wealth versus good is not immediately apparent. It can actually be shocking.

One is inclined to think that wealth is good. Of course, you take the cautionary steps and mention that wealth must be used for good, that wealth is not good by itself, that wealth should be shared to be good, but with all these safety nets on, we generally conclude that wealth is good. But it ain’t.

Actually in a social sense wealth is the opposite of good, wealth is evil. First, wealth is not money! Precisely, wealth is physical fenced matter. Here is a way to explain wealth: the last stage of owning, which breaks matter from the universe for the single use of a person.

Like this:

1) free — keep from none
2) worthy— keep from one
3) earned — keep from some
4) property — keep from many
5) wealth — keep from all

Unlike property, wealth just sits and does nothing much. Wealth is as useless as a pedestal. Think about it. All that matter below a human only so that one is higher than another … Wealth is when property becomes used as bricks in a wall. Wealth is like the tomb competition in Egypt, where, for no logical reason, work, time, effort, planning, all got sucked into fencing matter to make a huge pyramid of stone. Property is productive, property advances humans, but wealth is a force of stagnation.

Usually wealth is not real. It resides in illusory beliefs in the value of some things. This is different from property. But for this very specific reason wealth is fenced matter: we keep property out of production so we don’t suddenly see it loose its illusory evaluation.

Not only people act poorly on wealth. Entire countries do too. “Our land”, “our country”, “war” is about preserving unchanged an illusory drawing on a map for fencing matter.

The world has seen times like this before, times of doers revolutions. We are, it seems, bound to make the same mistakes, not ideologically, not conceptually, but emotionally. We suck at evolving beyond the immediate.

But, if wealth is evil, how to still satisfy our innate greed?

Greed. You have it. It masquerades as hunger, but, in reality, we sublimate the primal greed of eating for future hunger, into fine and abstract forms of greed, around the end of childhood. That moment when greed defined you, it was the loss of your innocence. Why are we so shy in acknowledging it? It is not a flaw, it is a survival mechanism and it doesn’t work right in times of abundance.

Greed is so basic that it defines an entire palette of emotions and sentiments. Pride, the greed for love. Lust, the greed for safety. Vanity, the greed for embraces. Gluttony, the greed for touch. Why do we shame it, instead of cultivating it?

It is the same thing we do to our poor ego. Fighting against our ego since Vedic times, with no results. Just because it’s news, if “ego fighting” would be a company, it should be Yahoo. When it was a highly valued behemoth, all it did was to suffocate promising businesses, in our case, promising paths for spiritual achievement, gulping on them with teleological arguments, constantly capitalizing on the touted purposelessness of the ego. Do you know why it worked? Because, we are all our egos, we are the purpose, so of course we don’t see it in our subjective damnation of it.

Sickly Ego + Primitive Greed = Hoarding

Back to our revolution. When doers get a revolution you get great things like electricity, mining enterprises, steel mills, mobile work forces, cars, lots of cars and machinery, items made of other items, lots of stagnating progress. Stagnating progress is the one that produces wealth. They are huge opportunities in the times of the revolutions made by doers. But, as opportunity is when luck meets preparation, only a few get to experience the fruits born out of innovation. Then a larger group will enjoy the fruits of access. Then an even lager group will enjoy the fruits of disruption. Do you know there is no such thing as “industry disruption”? Yes, there is only economic and social disruption, caused by winding down industries and ramping up new ones. The disassembly line for whole industries is not disruption, it is leverage.

But the world as a whole, during the revolutions of the doers, halts. Doers need to sell. To sell, you shout louder than the other doers. To be heard, you make a clearer message. To make the message clearer you make all communication static. Advertising copy becomes political discourse. Nobody wants to “complicate things” and you rise drivel to intellectual achievement.

We have a problem. The problem is that people cater to stupidity when they loose sight of stupidity. Take the UK’s vote. That was a bad idea and the people who chose a bad idea clearly are not smart enough to see it was a bad idea. There is no reason to pamper this and cater to stupidity by overarching histories of class inequality in the UK or about the shortcomings of bureaucracy in the EU. The British could have done many other things better than the stupid one the voted for. People who defend the “brexit” voters cater to stupidity. We’ll see later why this matters.

It’s the damn drivel. Drivel as intellectual achievement is when we loose sight of the fact that we’re not bright anymore. And we start to defend stupidity, we start to elevate it to higher levels of awareness, we start to draw lessons from randomness, forgetting our order maker natures.

In my opinion, the Eurosceptic movement or the ascension of nationalist extremism in the US are perfect examples of the sustained sun setting of the mind.

Why do we become chained to stupidity? Because during times of doer revolutions we rejoice practical novelty and in doing so we stifle intellectual novelty. Sure, no one will ever admit to it. During times of doers revolutions we rejoice positive news.

Thinking of problems should be done with a mandatory perma-smile.

Freedom does not mean deregulation

I think this sums up the whole problem in several aspects of our global society:

  • finance — regulations are the missing ingredient that spoiled the whole industry with unpunished theft
  • commerce — regulations are the missing barriers that allow crappy products to put solid businesses out of business on price wars
  • movement — regulations on the movement of people is the biggest demagogy I’ve ever seen, it is like if I lock the door to my house I keep someone’s free movement right at bay.
  • work — exporting jobs and importing low paid workers cannot work on the long run. At some point, you’ll either have an upper class made entirely of natives, which the immigrants will rise against, or you’ll have a hotchpotch of unhappy humans which don’t even speak the same language. Manage that.
  • science — look at the hell of molding results to get published to get funding because unregulated money flow.
  • business— why do we take so long to notice new unregulated life threatening industries, such as online tourism platforms disguised as renting websites.
  • employment — removing worker safety regulations is not a pro business move, it is a life threatening decision at government level

I could go on and on and on.

As you can see, guarding freedom means taking all the measures so that individual action is unrestricted, but leading nations and even smaller groups of people is the task of preventing the freedom of some cramping the freedom of everyone. That is what regulation is for.

Why don’t we deregulate car traffic? Everyone should be free to drive how they want, where they want, in any direction they want …

We can always apply the liberal perspective and filters to regulations, carefully craft them, but removing them altogether is definitely a bad idea because it is akin to expecting everyone to know everything, and we know that nobody knows anything.

This is so common sense.

This is so common sense. In another world, Spain’s agriculture, Eastern Europeans cause about the same thing as the H1B bad examples you mention. Also in UK’s construction industry or textile manufacturing, same deals.

I have personally witnessed stories of people living in inhumane conditions and being withheld imaginary commissions from their paychecks, having no option to negotiate or walk out of a job, or being fired and sent back to their country with no cash and no possessions.

Free markets and free moving of people is poorly implemented. That is all. Why are we still in Greenspan mode, so many years after he admitted that human greed got beyond his imagination. So, ok, we did it, we ruined the worlds economy out of greed, and yet today we still act as if it doesn’t exist.

As long as expenditures with employees can be “optimized” they will be so. It is a sorry situation … and it could be so easily solved by a clear implementation of work visas similar to the model you described, one must wonder why so much time spent so far waiting on nothing to happen but popular distrust and anxiousness, leading to extremist discourse …

It is rather complicated to live by ascribing agency to everything around.

It is rather complicated to live by ascribing agency to everything around. It is rather complicated to ignore structural differences even if, as the author you:

align [yourself] with the intuitions of children and primitives who ascribe consciousness and spirit to all things of the universe, animate or not.

as even if everything around is permeated by an ether of consciousness there are foundation parts which are so different between all things of the universe.

A cat cares for its kittens like a heroine. A human mother too. But, there is a difference: the cat is effectively drugged and chemically submitted into doing a specific set of tasks and to not kill the kittens. A human mother is not, she still must face the emptiness of meaning around and unlike most animals the post natal depression is a common occurrence.

A comet who travels around our solar system for a billion years with a conscience has a way different set of problems than a feeble mammal exposed to decay and at constant risk of death.

So even if we’re not “alone” as a thing in the universe, we are alone as an entity with a specific identity.

Say we find aliens. If they’re close to eternal creatures of energy who don’t use toilets and who don’t need to shower before making love, we’re still very much alone, a weird species floating on our blue gem in a distant cornet of the galaxy.

Were you born yesterday? Here is everything you need to know: (I)

A clear introduction to Humanity for the children of tomorrow

Part I

Welcome, I will be your guide for successful integration into Humanity. Our first plan will cover time. Time is our perception of the global phenomenon of increasing entropy. We humans generally split time in three parts:

  • past — a quick skim on what happened
  • present — a detailed grasp on the current situation
  • future — intuition based guesswork about what will occur next

First, as we continue, mind the biggest error that our mind is inclined towards in regard to time: causality. We are at an evolutionary stage where it is clear that synchronicity trumps causality. That means the future is just the tip of a thread going deep into the past, only shallowly guided by the present. That means you are unable to cause an effect, but only able to increase a probability of an effect. Synchronicity occurs when enough influence is being created that the scales decisively bend in favor of an outcome.

All right now, the past. The past is very, very long. Actually, the past is so big, that we had to invent a lot of things just to understand how it could be so big. Everything that all humans who ever lived ever created, is a hair thin dot at the tip of a fourteen billion year long past.

Far away, there is the past when we humans either did not exist, or we existed but we didn’t keep track of stuff at all. Many people work hard to uncover what we were bound to forget.

Yet recently we started to jot down what happens. This is what we call history. A great deal of people is doing a great effort to keep it real, as it happened, but, at the same time, another great deal of people work to make history as we wished it happened. We rewrite history to explain the present.

The present. The problem with it is that there is no such thing as the present, it is only your illusion of simultaneity that creates it. This illusion is good, probably the single innately good illusion your mind creates for you. The present is a good illusion because, in fact, it slows up time for us, allowing for forecasting and predicting short term events. That is what our survival has been so far, predicting short term events.

To understand the illusion of the present you will require a few concepts.

Politics. Politics is everything people do. Politics is the highest form of management: the management of life. Never be fooled by anyone belittling politics for they are trying to fool you. A single human in a forest will survive by being political about their existence inside a forest that doesn’t care about the human. That human will seek to empower themselves to survive an indifferent and often hostile, sometimes welcoming, environment. This empowerment of survival is what we call politics.

Reality. Reality is the one thing which we don’t agree upon. We all agree on many things, but not on what is real and what is not. Reality is the big pile of meaning lumped together into one concept. Because it is all the meaning mixed indiscriminately it makes no sense. Reality is something that will be constantly puzzling. Reality is the big lie, the lie that pretends to be the thing which we all must face, but instead being nothing else than our own creation. The reality is not an illusion though, it has substance:

Nature. Nature is our nemesis. Nature is what kills us. Some argue that nature is what feeds us, but the fact of the matter is we feed into nature because we outsmart it. In general, except for small slices of it, nature is very hostile to humans. In case you have flashes of beach paradises, exuberant vegetation and the abundance of fruit and berries, remember your last spider bite or mosquito stint. Nature is not hostile because it wants to harm us, it is hostile because it is a giant who doesn’t care about us, while we are conditioned to feel important. We want to control nature and in doing so we make it our mortal enemy.

Society. Society is a synonym for convention. There are big societies and small societies, depending on the number and importance of the items people agree on. A society always has an identity made up. Literally, made up. The identity is the sum of all the convention’s parts. Therefore, the size of a society is not given by the number of members, but it is a direct result of the concepts that make its identity.

The things a society agrees on are either internalized or enforced. Everything you see around you is simply a way humans along the tiny hair thin past they existed for have agreed on. It is one of many ways, that is why it is very useful to know which of the agreements have been enforced by force or by rewriting history.

Education. Education moves forward in time the conventions of a society. Our current education system is so busy with detailing each and every convention, so busy to not miss out on details, that children eventually grow up emotionally disconnected from the world. The goal of education is to inhibit change. Never forget that you too will be an educator at some point in your life, and right now you already educate everyone around you on what, and how, they must do preserve your status quo. Education should be a life long process for humans. It was. Today, because our society handles entertainment so good, we require less education.

Entertainment. Entertainment has been around since the dawn of mankind. Entertainment helps the current members of a society internalize the convention, it sugars every bitter truth of the social conventions and helps the average member to swallow the blue pill. The blue pill is the one filled with the expectations others have from you. The entire “mainstream” is a near perfect description of average mental models.

Entertainment includes culture and art. Those who argue for the separation of the three are deluding themselves in an attempt at personal grandeur. All humanity ever created as a form of self expression is, was and will be entertainment because it was all a form of communicating either what is expected at participation time or what is required for participation in the web like labyrinth of social conventions. Entertainment makes everything relative and everything which is relative will not be threatening. We are hard wired to fear the absolute.

Technology. Technology is the product of the human intellect. Like the brain regions that handle superior thought processes, technology has a smaller footprint in humanity, compared to its importance. Technology is what allows humans to fight nature, our nemesis. But technology is inhibited by society. Just like in the brain your logical operations are disabled by a varied group of situations, from panic to sexual stimulation, in the same way humanity’s technological progress is disabled by all kinds of conventions that activate from time to time: religion, war or tradition being the most handy ones to mention.

We all die and live as if we don’t. That is not bad, it enables progress. Yet, we fool ourselves into caring for things that don’t matter and that affects the future.

The future …

The future is bleak. The future has always been bleak for humanity. We are alone in a huge cold universe. We only have each other but we dislike this so much that we hate each other. Out mutual dislike is natural and the root cause is that we’re predictable and hence boring. We know in advance when another human’s actions or ideas will hurt us, and we let them for the thrill of it. We know in advance what other humans like and want, but we don’t do that for the thrill of it. We then choose about five to ten people on whom we lavish our entire efforts of love and compassion, for some we even produce pleasure, and we feel entitled for a reward. We take the reward as the pain of those not in that group, because we crave the novelty it brings.

Intelligence is our blessing and our curse. Because of it the future is uncertain. However we don’t see it as uncertain, we see it as set in stone. We believe with stubbornness that we know for certain what the future will bring, unaware of our role in making that future. It is a natural byproduct of the fact that our entire brains are prediction making machines relying on positive feedback: we must be right. So, we have some accuracy in predicting the future and acknowledging our failure to predict correctly is painful. This is key to understand humanity: when people are proven wrong they feel defeat, not enlightenment.

In order to contain our perpetual disappointment about the future we cling to: paradigms, concepts and moral truths. They are our constants in the formulas we use to cope with uncertainty. Paradigms, concepts and moral truths hide the true nature of things. Here are some examples:

  • the paradigm of religion which is an experience,
  • the moral truth of feminism which is a philosophy,
  • the paradigm of capitalism which is a system,
  • the moral truth of democracy which is a social experiment,
  • the concept of sex which is an attribute,
  • the concept of sexuality which is an adjective,
  • the paradigm of freedom which is a property,
  • the concept of truth which is an idea,
  • the concept of possession which is an agreement,
  • the paradigm of power which is an action,
  • the paradigm of existence which is an activity.

Knowing the true nature of things helps one in the basic action of prediction: asking the right questions. Such as how to exercise power, how to practice existence, which sex, what kind of sexuality, how to decline truth, how much freedom, does capitalism work, is religion beneficial, what can we apply from feminism, what results out of democracy, who supports possession?

The proper questions open the mind towards arguments, towards solutions, towards innovation, axioms, progress, acceptance, change and, in the end, evolution.

If you indulge in a a topsy-turvy of meanings and interpretation, you’ll look for, and even worse, you’ll also find, the right answers to the wrong questions.

The best way to predict your future is to create it, said Lincoln.

It appears we’re doing just that, except we don’t own up to it.

How to handle time

“Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.” Macbeth, W. S.

Live in the present. Think of the future. Learn from the past.

We humans do not have monolithic existences. Instead, we have an existence made out of components. I propose three major components as the main experiences of existence: living , thinking and learning. Here is what they mean.

Living represents most of the physical, biological and some psychological activities. Living is the tangible part of the experience, the part that produces pleasure.

Thinking represents the exploration of the experience and it is between tangible and intangible. By induction, inference and deduction we discover life and we expand it way beyond the immediate stimuli, we push our lives towards some imaginary horizon. That is why thinking is the part of existence which produces joy.

Learning is the integration of the experience and it is completely intangible. Even the purpose of learning is vague and undefined. We’re not talking about the learning done in school, but about the human possibility for self improvement, the capacity of spiritual, material and physical evolution. The motivation for learning is different in each and every individual, and it is in a direct connection with the lives they’ve had. Because learning leads to evolution it is that part of the experience which produces happiness.

What I propose further on is that each one of these experiences should occur at the right time, and at the right time only. Let me explain.

Living in the present begets trust.

Living in the present connects us with the our senses and by doing so it creates a positive feedback loop allowing us to repeat pleasant activities. The human living in the present is more organized, it has more time because its past and future are not busy with living. One who lives in the present feels everything as more intense and often concludes that life is worthwhile.

Thinking about the future begets comprehension.

Thinking about the future forces one to create a logical string of events and to predict their outcome. The human who thinks about the future has more success, more stability and becomes wiser every day. They’ll often conclude that life is beautiful.

Learning from the past begets humility.

Learning from the past hands us the possibility to see that everything makes sense, a sense that is something bigger than oneself, and this acts like a shield against the existential crisis, which is the worst blow of our egoist natures. The human who learns from the past has more patience, becomes open for compassion, see the bigger picture and probably concludes that there is at least some divinity in life.

The human who is confident, wise and humble is an individualized human.

These three processes, confidence, wisdom and humility lead to individualization. Today, across the world, there extremely few individualized humans. The reason is that most of us experience some of the following combinations, bad ideas.

Bad ideas

I live in the future and I think of the present

Bad idea. Living in the future begets disappointment because nothing ever gets to be experienced and felt at maximum intensity. Thinking of the present generates worries, because it is simply an effort to figure out what happens while it is happening. This is impossible and hence there is a constant fear that everything could collapse at any moment.

I live in the past and I learn from the present

Bad idea. Living in the past is the sure path to depression because all experiences have been already had and leave the present flavorless. Learning from the present is another way of defining shallowness: all I know is what is, what was and what will be is of no interest to me. Shallowness removes everything out of context, because of the scarcity of information which the fleeting present provides. The present IS and that’s about all you can learn from it.

I think of the past and I learn from the future

Bad idea. When you think of the past you give birth to regrets because all you do is a constant sorting and ordering of events by our skewed ideals, denaturing their meaning by ripping apart the sequence your events occurred in. Idealization crates regret (in its easy form we call it nostalgia). The frustration regret builds grinds the human spirit to the finest of sands. Learning from the future makes one a control freak, because it is as if you would apply the scientific method — hypothesis, demonstration and conclusion — to life itself. Unfortunately this activity, by which you really get over yourself to have the future happen in one specific way, so that you can test your hypothesis, makes of you a control freak AND it puts you in everyone else’s path to stumble upon, individualized or not.

All the bad ideas above are not random combinations I made up, but instead they are the result of one single error: the time of your existence are never empty. If you live in the future, then you occupy that time of existence with living and therefore thinking will occupy the free spot in the present. And that’s what happens for all the bad ideas above, one of living, thinking or learning is misplaced and the vacancy is occupied by another activity.

All the bad ideas make one thing and one thing only: justifications!

Disappointments justify worrying (so much has happened to me, of course I am worried), worrying justifies disappointments; depression justifies shallowness (if I can’t find anything worthwhile, why bother looking in the depth of the world) and shallowness justifies depression; regret justifies control (it was better before — calling out ya’ll Trumpist baby boomers — so I must make things in the future as they were), and control justifies regret.

Instead of an ending, here is an exercise of consequences:

  • lucidity is the peak of discerning, discerning is what makes the wise,
  • wisdom is the peak of of reason, reason is what makes the evolved spirit,
  • evolution is the peak of of an accomplished life, and accomplishment is what makes the individualized
  • individualization is the peak of of self-knowledge. self-knowledge is what makes awareness

Awareness is the peak of of existence.

love me, i dare you!

Make life worth living again!

Joe Brewer it is as if you ended the story too swiftly. Spiritual practice has been around for ages, and it has not caught enough traction to become mainstream in its original form. What we have today is all kinds of washed up concepts, that start from their original eastern or western philosophies of detachment or attachment, but all that’s left are nuggets of wisdom interpreted so as to fit our pop culture machine.

The pop revolution of Andy Warhol was the best attempt to infuse higher consciousness in mass produced wealth, and the result was that after his death we’re bidding on the MM poster millions of dollars. He didn’t achieve what his greatness proposed, not even by far.

People are not willing to step out of their collective illusion just by simple discourse. There has to be connection, there has to be a society that welcomes them, there has to be, simply put,

another illusion to replace the one we’re abandoning.

What we require is active and directed effort to create a better set of conventions. I so much dislike this underground awakening currents that do not make anything lasting, just momentary fleeting epiphanies.

Martin Rezny in his response proposes Zen as an approach to resisting political correctness. The problem is that at the end of Zen you find out that nothing is. What good does that do to coalesce humanity?

I think there is a lot of confusion, because people mistake attention for awareness. Awareness is the constant sensation of the lack of knowledge, the more certainties you have the less aware you are. That is why meditation that reveals the nature of the universe transcends this place and moves one into Nirvana. But up (or down?) there, you are no longer aware, you are melted into the liquid of beingness.

Religion lowers awareness by giving answers to fundamental questions. Propaganda lowers awareness by giving answers to immediate questions. Family lowers awareness by giving answers to existential questions.
Meditation gives any answers, so go figure!

Attention, on the other hand, is the stuff will is made of. But will is only enticed when we have meaning around. We currently have no reason for existing other than the meaning we create ourselves. We are meaning machines. We create meaning in order to have a reason for existing. And this is the problem:

One of the most important discoveries to come out of this large body of research (spanning fields like psychology, linguistics, evolutionary studies, neuroscience, anthropology, and computer science) is that the human mind is physically structured to conceal the meaning-making process from conscious awareness. (source)

Concealing meaning is occurring because of lack of attention! Attention please 🙂

We require a body of knowledge that gets interpreted to create a better version of the existing by adding new meaning. We don’t require a revolution. Revolutions suck because they tear apart solid structures and fuck up foundations and then, when we start building again, we incorporate the same fucked up models we have used before because we didn’t want to make this crap, we have carefully crafted for a very different version of this present, but we’re constantly fooled by the parts of us which we don’t like to admit that exist.

More people who meditate will not solve the crisis the world heads into. We tried that. There were two decades last century brought down by the hope they drugged themselves with. By all means, more people could and should meditate, it helps find answers, but mind that every meditation will produce only one output:

specific subjective individual answers to all questions.

With that at hand the divisiveness will only increase. Just look at the new age scene. Yeah, I know people mock that as bullshit, but consider the fact that by definition it could encompass anything that is not atheist and neither traditionally religious. A huge string of humans there, any results?

The truth is we are not organized. The progressives and liberals are so happy they’re on the good side of history (fuck, what a stupid idea) that they simply employ high valyrian as the de facto language. We keep forgetting how people couldn’t understand God when his words were spoken in educated latin! We keep forgetting how french in England separated nobility from peasants for hundreds of years. We do it again today, because we know we’re the good guys. Fuck certainties.

There is not one single magic move today that creates global sense. The problem is sense is what makes mind control shatter: sense, direction, purpose all inciting the attention of people.

We need ways to:

Make life worth living again!
