The power of education does not lay in your ability to read a million books as fast as possible. There has to be an integration in your character to convert the information available into practical knowledge you can apply in your daily life challenges. Only then, you are becoming educated. The word ‘educere’ means to […]
I emphasize a lot on the uniqueness of the individual. This originates from my conviction that EVERYBODY has something to share. A gift that they can cultivate within and express towards their fellow men. We have potential that goes beyond our wildest dreams and we can tap into this form of intelligence by getting to […]
This one is pretty easy to teach yourself. However, I still want to emphasize the importance of this concept. Whatever your discipline in life is, there will always be multiple people that are focusing their energy towards similar objectives you are focusing upon. Not only can their advantage in your field can discourage you in persisting your […]
Virtue is what you keep when you have reached your goals. All fruits of your labor will perish, but the lessons learned and the virtues trained will always be with you during new adventures and challenges. So virtues are like the marks on stones when they have stumbled down the mountains. The purpose of the marks […]
We know more and more about less and less. Specialisation makes you close minded and tends to diminish the resources you can use in order to stimulate your syntactic creativity. Remixing ideas and experiences into new and innovative ways is the thriving force of humanity. Our syntactic creativity is the reason for our prosperity and […]
We have come pretty far already in ‘controlling’ our eco systems, but we have still a long way to go in mastering it. Becoming the master of nature has nothing to do with neurotic control. You can compare it with your emotions. The path of least resistance implies that you allow your emotions to be […]
Creativity is a state of higher consciousness. Every human can resonate with the feeling of producing something out of his own. It gives us a deep sensual fulfillment that exceeds all other basic human needs. Most societies do not allow or are not stimulating the creative powers of her citizens. Humans have an unlimited amount […]
Human beings are supposed to evolve to higher levels of existence. We are meant to evolve on an individual and collective level. Most people are always after the carrot and the cake, but never after the baking itself. What most people forget is that baking the cake is actually more valuable then eating the cake. […]
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.
