Beware of singlethink!

one meaning assigned George Orwell got this one wrong There are some forms of art, literature, visual and other, which are so grand that you cannot go around them, no matter how much you try. I wish I had found another example, rather than referencing Nineteen Eighty-Four, yet again, but it is simply too good and too… Continue reading Beware of singlethink!

Women are not crazy, men are lazy

A harsh truth that happens to make a rhyme I have found in my searches and learning that, apparently, the real history of mankind is built on various answers to the question of questions: what do women want? And somehow, almost always, the answer was power. My fellow men, you’ve been misguided and so have I.… Continue reading Women are not crazy, men are lazy

The Game Is Not Rigged, You Are An NPC

Whenever you feel like you’re left out of the game understand this: you are in the game all right, it’s just that you’re not playable. This idea got to me from a comic: http://forlackofabettercomic.com/?id=227 I saw this a while ago and it stuck with me. Surely, the reason for which I remembered this comic is… Continue reading The Game Is Not Rigged, You Are An NPC

A clear introduction to Humanity for the children of tomorrow Part I Welcome, I will be your guide for successful integration into Humanity. Our first plan will cover time.

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,… Continue reading Make life worth living again!

We can’t stop it because we’re not doing it

Someone must have something against someone else. Lately if it’s not Americans vs Mexicans, it’s the police vs the blacks, or the blacks vs the police, the Muslims vs the Christians, or the western civilization vs the eastern civilization. If it isn’t any of those, it’s the millennials vs the baby boomers, the brogrammers vs… Continue reading We can’t stop it because we’re not doing it

Ad Girls are either zombies or empty shells

or amazing for going through the ordeal of working in advertising and keep being true to themselves and sane. Lisa Leone thank you a thousand times for this story. The advertising industry is the most sexist place ever, and it is down right dangerous for women’s health. It is a place where not only women are… Continue reading Ad Girls are either zombies or empty shells

All children are awesome, too bad they have parents.

Oh yes, too bad. That title above may sound like crap, but the truth is we as a species have evolved out of this parent thing a loooong, loooong time ago. First: I don’t have any children. Second, it doesn’t matter. You will understand it doesn’t matter by noticing that this headline is not about… Continue reading All children are awesome, too bad they have parents.

The plural of person is corporation,

or people. If we pretend otherwise we’ll continue to fail in admitting the new player in our society, a long lasting one that we should both fear and control. You know, corporations are people. This guy is right, but for the wrong reason: It is not because “everything corporations do, goes back to people”, the… Continue reading The plural of person is corporation,

Humans who identify as males are attracted to humans who identify as females

Seriously, it is very hard to use “identify” every time and I will not use imaginary pronouns in this article about the sexes. Males mean all who identify as males and females all who identify as females, irrelevant of their biological sex, gender or orientation. I can do this because asexual people have no influence… Continue reading Humans who identify as males are attracted to humans who identify as females

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… Continue reading The end of El Dorado

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… Continue reading Know thyself, the envy way

Forget Maslow! Everything Is Basic Need.

This damned theory, which governs our life plans, assumes that happiness is reached at the top of a pyramid of needs, and, until you get there, you must figure out more immediate problems like food, shelter or safety. On the basis of this model, a whole set of directions have been set in our society,… Continue reading Forget Maslow! Everything Is Basic Need.

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… Continue reading The day I will become a millionaire

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… Continue reading Disney depression

10 hard things in life

Hard things require a huge inner fight against the natural instinct, against outside pressure to conform, against learned stereotypes, against tiredness, against hedonism, against pessimism, against anger, against love. You’d think that handling multi million operations is a tough job. You’d imagine anyone knows a thing or two about eating, having sex, socializing and enjoying… Continue reading 10 hard things in life

The 7 social circle types

The world we live in is ultimately social. Based on simple biological conditioning socializing is deeply rooted in our psychology. From a basic need of peer security to higher needs such as recognition we continually seek social integration. Society like many other things is split by class, by location, by education, by income, you name… Continue reading The 7 social circle types

Letter to the struggling creator of anything

Dear creative human, You are always busy. New ideas, new work, new output every hour after hour. At the end of the day it’s all meant to push you, bit by bit, closer to the place you want to be in. May the place be called “The top of the (collective) mind”. When you do get… Continue reading Letter to the struggling creator of anything
