What I find fascinating to notice in contemporary society is the so called ‘shift from closed to more open systems’. Systems that are fundamentally more complex and connected with their environments instead of being in a fixed and linear state. It makes sense, since the dawn of the industrial age, their was no or less […]
When the philosophers and artists and all other highly sentient beings are leaving a given society, it is a really, really bad sign for thunder to strike..
When the philosophers and artists and all other highly sentient beings are leaving a given society, it is a really, really bad sign for thunder to strike.. Humans are like animals, sentient beings. It is a given fact that highly sentient beings can feel the thunder to strike upon their local communities beforehand. When these […]
On my website I have shared many concepts on topics like growth, innovation, renewal, death etc. Just type in some of those keywords and you will find some interesting material hopefully. Off course, the reason why I have written so much about it, is because I am highly interested in the topics myself! ‘Growth’ remains a […]
There is this saying that ‘birds alike tend to fly in the same flock’, and for good reasons, since many people are having difficulties accepting or tolerating the differences in personalities and cultures around the globe, hence the reason why the globalization movement has such a consensus. It is comfortable to be around ‘like-minded’ people who continue […]
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 […]
The greatest misfortune is that of being unable to think and move gracefully People seem to be so emotionally invested in the external world that they ignore there most important assets; the body and the mind. What is a life worth living without having peace of mind and a body as strong as oak? No matter your […]
There are two ways to control people, either through physical force or mental slavery, including belief systems and emotional states. The body and the mind are the game pieces, the instruments by which we, as individuals, can navigate our lives. So by giving away these game pieces, we are giving away our own will power to […]
“birds alike tend to fly in the same flock” Humans are not much different from birds in the sense that they are separate agents of a society or flock who can self-organize themselves around mutual interests and desires. This self-organizing principle is especially needed in times of political, social and economic instability. Communion is an inherent human […]
It is easy to be critical when you think you are perfect The Dalai Lama coins it beautifully in the following quote; “To be aware of a single shortcoming within oneself is more useful than to be aware of a thousand in someone else.” Often times, we create enemies when we are trying to help someone. […]
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 […]
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.
