When an agent is out of alignment with the collective interest, you have the possibility of the tragedy of the commons. The tragedy of the commons is hard to miss in our world where we all suffer from so called negative externalities on all sorts of levels. The oceans are getting over fished, jungles deforested […]
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 […]
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 […]
Dear reader, Thanks for tuning in, Alright, based on what I know about system design/thinking, I want to try to recap what this genius is talking about, to put it in more simple terms, add a little of my own and a little more poetic/storytelling like way for the purpose of getting the message across […]
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 […]
“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 […]
In my articles I often share the consequences of the industrial revolution, the systems that are used and are still in place in this post-industrial time and the impact it has on our humanity and that of the planet itself. By all means, I am not the first who criticizes certain aspects of non-linear systems […]
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 […]
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.
