Things I see about our games

Work division and romance

I think that if we were to choose the greatest breaker of romantic relationships is applying work division principles to chores. If you’re after the increase of efficienciencies while playing house, you will get either one of divorce, therapy or a dysfunctional family — given the exception where both parties are high functioning sociopaths. When playing house efficiencies

What is work ethic?

You can’t teach someone work ethic. You can’t. “Work ethic is a belief that hard work and diligence have a moral benefit and an inherent ability, virtue or value to strengthen character”, Wikipedia instructs. In my past 18 years of professional interaction with people, I found that work ethic is a deeply personal experience which

New eternity in 5, 4, 3 …

There is no God willing to torture you for an eternity, because eternal torture is boring. There is no eternal happiness either. Eternal happiness requires both eternal awareness and your freezing in a particular state, but if you don’t change awareness is zero, therefore happiness is maximum right before it changes you so that you

Change your denominator.

Being a human in this day and age got limited. I feel like those kind of questions which were asked once with great reverence, are today barely referenced as conversation starters. People don’t want to go in depth anymore. What scarred me is that the shallowness is not the kind you find at careless teenagers

Actually, the world is eating software

Aren’t we lovely when we’re delusional? Er, I mean all high on hope. When you think of software eating the world you imagine: an automated heaven, filled with people being paid for leisure time a symphony of orchestrated machinery, working for some hard coded greater good hidden, but constantly communicating, systems that combine streams of data

Rich people love sociopaths

The best of the best never lean back, and this is wrong. Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination

Dear girls,

you are not as fat as you think you are. Actually stop thinking about fat. Altogether. Fat this, fat that, fuck fat. There is nothing interesting about it. It is simply another kind of calorie supplier, just like protein and carbs. Did you ever hear anyone say, “honey you’ve gotten too proteic!”? Hell, I haven’t! Fun

Going to the doctor

Blue neon hospital hallway. A place where hope is halted at the door and faith takes its place. In hospital hallways one finds more faith than in any city church. The doctor is for blips of failing reason a saint materialised as a white robed human. What has medical science made of us? Us, creatures

Defending capitalism

i) Capitalism almost always promotes short-term gains. That’s why newsmax.com, breitbart, fox news crush NY Times, NPR in terms of profitability That is not capitalism’s fault actually. An economic system will NOT by default correct human deficiencies and biases and social mistakes. Capitalism is not a philosophy of good. ii) Capitalism almost always exploits Human’s

Power is sugar

Peter Douglas Molyneux is the creator of Black and White. In a hot summer night I was left alone with a computer, coffee and this game. After about seven hours of gameplay, I remember walking in a complete rush into the bedroom, and waking up my wife shouting from the top of my lungs: I’m

In a future without ownership:

be careful what you wish for, it might just come true If that future it is not socialist, will we be slaves of wages? In that future, if it is too socialist, will capitalism succumb to failed centralised economies? When I won’t own anything what property will my constitution guarantee? In the business of perpetual renting

How to stop the incoming fascism

.. to be updated, fixed, constructed further, this set of ideas live in my profile until better consistency and meaning is achieved .. Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical

Romania the secret service playground

[facebook url=”https://www.facebook.com/ciprian.muntele.7/videos/10154190955657761/” /] A river of light made of two hundred thousand people in Bucharest. For larger countries this might seem a flashmob, for Romania it is a civic force. In a country stolen from its people, the existence of civic spirit is a miracle. Nobody believes it. A country stolen from its people In this

The arthritis of the world

In this day and age normal war of country versus country makes no sense. War today is the war of the political leaders waged on their own people. What seemed to be progress pushed us closer to enabling sociopaths and other emotionally empty or unstable, but charismatic, people to seize power in an unchallenged manner.

War Has No Good Side. None.

War is shit. We all know that. But there is this commonly accepted idea that war has some good sides. The first one, always brought up is that war makes technology and science advance faster. This is wrong: war by itself is nothing but a setback for science and technology because standalone knowledge which doesn’t

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,

The end of El Dorado

Dream shattering. Probably not visible for us mere mortals as it is for Ev Williams, the end of start ups is probably coming on the next five to seven years. The biggest blocking factor will not be lawyers and lobbyists though. They are the perks you get with high caliber business, but the key differentiator is

Know thyself, the envy way

If personal laissez faire and Facebook don’t reveal much about who you are: monitor your envy. You are those who you envy. You are the things you envy others for. Everything you envy is something that describes you. And everything you envy is at arms length, its just your actions separating you from those things, the Holly Grails others

The day I will become a millionaire

You’ve likely already found or at least seen the very best things (whether you know it or not). Make them count. I’ve always wondered about the use of this information. DHH is not the first nor the last, as he himself says, to somehow disseminate this information “through clever or modest-profound” ways. Why do rich people feel the

Disney depression

This is the future. Damn. I know it doesn’t have to be this way, but for now it looks like it. If I’d have a future seeing shaft like the one in Tomorrowland i know I’ll spot John Company through it. We’re living in a pretty schizoid world. We are split between imagination and fantasy
