Wall street not greedy enough. Not a joke. Let me teach you how to be greedy.
My greed is on a level most members of Wall Street can't yet imagine. They are like charity loving tree hugging hippies compared to my greed. Anyone who wants to rule the world should learn to think big. You see those stars out there? How much do you think they're worth? Want to go get some of that? How are you going to satisfy your intergalactic greed when you can't work together enough to build transportation and factories to process the raw materials and other valuable things you find?
Still, that is not greedy enough. The universe is infinite. Nonexistence is isomorphic to the set of all self-consistent possibilities. Are you seriously happy with owning just this 1 tiny corner of the universe? I'd like to call Wall Street greedy, but they're just not up to my standards. Please try harder. I know you can want your own intergalactic multiverse grid if you really tried to want it. You're so passive and polite in not trying to buy all these amazing things around us.
I made a serious proposal of how to create a billion very productive jobs with little investment here:
Service of realtime high dimension pattern match powered by hive of Human minds
Think about what the creation of stock markets did for global productivity. This would be that level of improvement over stock markets as they exist today.
I love stock markets overall because I'm greedy toward maximizing the productivity of Earth for everyone, but not the unbalanced way they're used. Protest the details of Wall Street which unbalance things but not the value of stock markets in general... at least until we have no need for laws and money anymore.
For the same reason, there should be no intellectual property laws. Small greed sells to millions. Big greed gives it to billions and profits from what they create and also give to everyone, including you. That appears small when only a few people do it, but if billions of people were doing whatever they're good at and copying it (if its easily copied) to up to billions of others, then intellectual property laws would be seen as the drain on productivity they really are. Its why open source software is now as advanced as proprietary software. We stand on the shoulders of giants for free. Giants all around. Why argue about music piracy while wars are costing trillions of dollars in damage to infrastructure, people who could be doing useful work, and generally making people hate eachother. The total value of intellectual property laws is negative. Don't let small greed get in the way of big greed.
If greed is your way of life, take some pride in it and learn to be as greedy as you can. Make an art of it. Be greedy in a way museums will be created to display your style of greed long after you're dead. But these mountains of pages of financial laws that nobody reads... That's not art. Its garbage. The most greedy would refine their ways of greed to the most simple, efficient, and accurate ways, because you get richer.
I'm greedy in a different context. I'm greedy toward the most efficient ways to improve the universe overall. What was the difference between greed and altruism? Words are so confusing. Best to talk in math.
When you can make a serious proposal of how to create a billion jobs for little investment, then you'll be on a level of greed you can at least imagine how greedy I am. Until then, I have to laugh at Wall Street for leaving the galaxies out there to charity.
There is nothing more efficient than working together as equals, with nobody above or below anyone else, and many of us so greedy we don't get distracted with the details of how to stop wasting time creating science fiction TV and put that instead into making it real. Many say it can't be done. Those are the same kind of people who, 20 years ago, would have said the Internet can't be done. What if we cut all military budgets of all countries in half and put that into a shared organization legally obligated to act only toward practical mass-produced warp drive following the recent discoveries which merged quantum and relativistic physics. Science is a process, not something to get stuck in and sell to the highest bidder. I'd start with a grid of relativistic quality atomic clocks similar to how the "Global Consciousness Project" (Noosphere) uses quantum random number generators and found patterns in the numbers which were supposedly random but became a little less random at times statistically related to major world events, and see how that interacts with "Quantum Radar", rotating superfluid pools of Bose Einstein Condensate (Will the Quantum Radar decohere it or not is a question of the unbalanced part and its current angle of rotation, to be done in space in the 3 dimensional shape of a "peterson graph", since each point has 3 connections to other points, and the Quantum Radar would point parallel to each edge so all points have 3 Quantum Radars pointing at them, and use that in combination with various quantum half-silvered mirrors to split the laser signal and delay it so you get to experiment with recursive Newcomb's Paradox strategies as input to the quantum computers connecting the grids of Quantum Radar devices, or simpler just run them individually and simultaneously without the quantum computers, so the whole experiment turns that region of space into a big quantum/multiverse experiment with the rotating superfluid bose einstein condensate pools each being like a qubit except perpendicular to the "complex unit circle" we normally measure time on as in the Schrodinger Equation), grids of lasers instead of slow electricity based wires, and try lots of combinations of that... About the backward idea that intergalactic travel takes lots of energy... Nonexistence is isomorphic to the set of all self-consistent possibilities, which means the universe is simultaneously everything and nothing, like a klein bottle or mobius or other nonorientable manifold, so in total the universe cancels-out itself and doesn't exist, while all individual parts exist... The practical use of that philosophy is that since the universe does not exist overall (only its individual parts exist when separated from eachother) that it makes no sense at all why it should take more than the smallest amount of energy to make big changes to a universe which doesn't even exist in total, but apply that same force to any individual part of the universe and the imbalance drives up the energy cost to what science understands today as the only way it works. The point is to look for low energy solutions whose power comes from accuracy. Theres lots of theories and research paths we could imagine and debate on Internet forums. If you ever run out of research paths to try, I can throw some more mad-science speculation at you. But to not even try? I don't want to live in a world that prefers war over curiosity. Of course we don't know how it would work. That's why its called research, and with a multi-trillion dollar budget, if it can be done we would probably see it happen faster than any other project in history which only had billions of dollars. Chump change. As a species, its our money to spend on whats important to us. Or we could keep that money in the military budgets. Its a no-brainer to me, but I can't want it for you.
