    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.

    Throughout my youth, my mother would point out to me those relatives and neighbors who were successful by her standards. “That person is very successful, she would say.” She used a simple standard – visible wealth. They were the winners. They were who I should aspire to be.

    But as I grew to understand the idea of winning, the culture of winning, the process of winning, and the rewards of winning, I realized that the construct of success is a fabrication built upon imagination and assumptions. SLANT. Our story today is about the game of life. Of inherited rules and referees. Of inherited language and meaning. It is about inherited constructs such as winning and success that fail to embrace Nurture, Equality, Truth, Systems, complexity and a Proof Process.

    Here are Merriam Webster’s dictionary definitions of both “winner” and the closely related term, “success”

    Winner
    a : one that is successful especially through praiseworthy ability and hard work
    b : a victor especially in games and sports
    c : one that wins admiration

    Success
    b : favorable or desired outcome; also : the attainment of wealth, favor, or eminence.
