You are poor if you spend more time on other peoples projects than your own or projects you want to do. You may have a million dollar house but if you have to work other peoples projects to pay for it, leaving you little time to create things on your own terms, you're still poor. On the other hand, people who have nothing but their...

It can be done for good reasons and fair trades of possible futures, but it can also be used in a very dangerous and powerful way, which we can all more often avoid by being aware of the paradigm and how it can be used positively or negatively. In the Saw movies, people find themself in a world they want to escape. They are given a list of...

This is a plan to solve a big problem everyone on Earth will soon have if we don't start working on a solution. The solution I'm looking for is technical but can quickly be calculated with pen and paper. Its a way of us observing eachother and keeping track of who can and can't be contacted, to make sure the reasons for anyone's unexpected...

We sovereign intelligent life forms (from now on, called "people") commit to live by the view that there is no higher authority on Earth than majority commitment of the global population, therefore if a majority commits to something then indirectly all others are committed to it too, but indirect commitments do not count votes toward...

Everyone gets as few or as many votes as they want. Nobody needs to be identified because there is no limit on how many votes each person can create. How could such a system work? Why wouldn't people just vote millions of times? They may, but that won't give them more influence. Its not about the number of votes. Its about the patterns of...

I know why there is a square root of -1 in the quantum physics equations, why things are waves sometimes and particles other times, why the double-slit experiment works, why there are bell-curves in quantum physics, and why time exists. Start with nothing. Then divide the nothing into X number of possible states of the universe (ways the...

In Buddhist philosophy, desire and mental attachment are what keeps you stuck here on Earth, but I have a much easier way to explain it. There are many philosophies I think are mostly true. Anyone can do this. In 2002 for a few months, I had it a small amount, compared to most people who rarely have it enough to notice it exists. Then because...

Going by the standard of supply and demand, a Human life is worth as much as it costs to save the cheapest Human life, unless some people are worth more than others. I asked how much it costs to save the cheapest million Human lives on average in and indirectly explained how peoples' actions and what they think it costs contradict. Here is...

They are becoming the same subject through unusual experiments. In recent years, some of the subjective experiences and things that were believed on faith are being scientifically proven.

What if the revolution doesn't need a name? Or leaders? Or a formal agenda? The most wonderful thought could be this: shit happens. Perhaps this is a uniquely Australian idiom, perhaps not - and I don't wish to offend with profanity, we Australians swear a lot, and this phrase has even been used by a Parliamentarian in a memorable impromptu...

I am not implying that our species is threatened with extinction or that the “end of the...
