Some things in life will always remain highly unpredictable, and gladly so! Otherwise, life is this dole ball game everyone seems to be able to win at if they are highly rational agents, making decisions based upon deterministic laws. However, the beauty of it, is that life always has its irrational tricks upon its sleeves […]
Back again with some more creative content! Not only is this a concept I have often shared on my website, but I do urgently think it is of great importance in our current spirit of time where many systems in society (Europe) are unstable and crumbling. A time that screams for stable individuals and groups […]
Disagreement makes a good avenue to explore differences, not to eradicate them A difficult challenge between individuals and cultures has always been the extremity of differences and the conflicts that can arise out of this contrast. A good incentive for the globalization movement is off course the inability of humanity to experience Agape, the highest form […]
Words like ‘society’ and ‘sociology’ are delineated from the Latin and Greek roots of ‘socius’ and ‘logos’, or the study or absolute truth of companionship. The phenomena in which individuals come together to form a party, preferably a synergistic one, in which 1+1 equals 3, so that they make a surplus while already having a win-win situation. […]
The educational systems in contemporary society often propagate the significance of specialization over generalization. So why is that? What makes a highly specialized individual more superior then one who is ‘a jack of all trades and a master of none’? What makes putting all your eggs in one basket superior then spinning multiple plates at once? Why juggle only with one […]
Any system, could it be an individual, an organisation, a society or a whole planet, seems to be under influence of scarcity. For example, in order to be healthy and fit, we need to have interactions with our environment. We need to consume food, take it all in, express the energies in an creative outlet in order […]
Complex systems like human beings, the organisations they create and the societies they live in, are always triggered by some sort of chain event in order to catapult them into new areas of growth. There needs to be a trigger in the system in order to awake those who fall asleep on the wheel of life. […]
One of the repeating themes I love to write about are the cultural influences our Western, industrialized society has on our psyche and well-being. Our environment is actively engaged in how we feel and experience our quality of health and well-being and, therefore, it is important to highlight. One might assume that with all this […]
In the alchemical process of sublimating your energies, you transmute all weakness into power, all fear into courage, truly turning water into wine. It is by knowing our darkness that we can shed light onto new territories of love. To expand our horizons, we need to see through scary nights, also called; the dark night […]
During our life passages, we journey into a realm of dealing with opposites. The main challenge of being human, is too know how to find unity within the diversity, harmony within chaos, peace during war, forgiveness when seeking revenge and the list goes on. Opposites of good and evil, the sinner and saint, the coward and […]
SOL provides scripted and scattered insights and broken tools for every day challenges in the quest for strength, wholeness and prosperity.
It does give the secret sauce away on occasion or for those who have the willingness to understand.
It provides more clarity and useful tools if you give me;
1. A sack of organic potatoes, handmade bread, fine liquor, fine;cut tobacco, tea leaves, fair trade coffee or mountain water.
2. Surthrival equipment (open for testing)
3. Precious stones, unique cacti, metals, art or crystal chess board (certain crypto currencies as well)
4. A piece of fertile land or an island.
5. Special tokens…
Six. Lara Croft?
7. An oldtimer.
8. A maze that puzzles me.
9. An empty cup
10. To be humbled.
In the content I create, I do my best to refer to the sources I have used and give credits to if I am aware that I am simply rehearsing the thoughts of another being. After all, I am no one man island, and it is always a co-creation, even if the birds inspired me to write a poem, it still is a co-creation. Heck, what if my inspiration comes from my alien brother?
Either way, please feel free to correct me if I have missed or forgotten this in some articles and dishonored someones originality.
If not, then the source of creativity is of my own, and, therefore, we have the concept of ownership in traditional economics. All though, I find it to be complex to take ownership, since what does it matter if its all ephemeral and tackable?
I try to be a living example of creating a living out of the things I feel passionate about, and to produce more then I consume. I think this is an economic formula for wealth and prosperity in a world.
Despite the economic airy fairy idealism described above, we live in (gr)needy times of cognitive capitalism, where ideas, thoughts and creative outlets are easily shared, stolen and remixed.
The cumulative nature of the internet has its pro’s and con’s. I think it is beneficial for the greater good of humanity, the planet and beyond that everybody can access creative outlets and enjoy each others life work, but it also means the death of the creative individual if he or she isn’t rewarded appropriately for the hard work that can go into the creative process.
I know I cannot prevent content theft or hackers in this time and age, but I can say that if you steal my originality, you will steal your own, and have to settle for mediocrity, and be a mini-me. Which equals suffering. HAH, Wanna be trap!
And if you hack me, you only hack my memorandums, not the source, so enjoy my memories instead of your own.
I might be lawless in that sense, but the truth is harsh in that way.
Trust me, it is already hard enough to be yourself in this world, let alone to be someone else!
So yeah, learn to channel your creative energies, and bring your own version of love, truth and beauty in this world! Or wickedness, the choice is always yours…
This is my invitation,
And blame messenger if you make a mess out of it.
