I am for you

Archive for contraction~expansion

For David.

Thank you my honey!

You opened a space in my life for me to follow a crazy path to exactly where I needed to be. Thank you, also, for giving me the astounding courage, and a reason, to struggle through a dangerous and scary path, and keep moving forward, with a central goal of wanting to figure out how to help you, and other humans, be less angry, scared, and hopeless, so that your most beautiful soul could finally shine.

Without this vast unknown void of space you pushed me into, I would never have found my way into the homeless shelters, and understood the depth of our human system’s brokenness, and the beauty of some of the most unfortunate women banding together to help one another heal. And I would have never befriended Peter Draws! Which allowed me to explore my art side again, and really figure out the philosophical extravert brain (while he, and I, and everyone around us, made that weird relationship a truly #lifeisweird phenomenon, where a bunch of people got a little too hurt, again…), which then allowed me to seek out, and much better understand how to relate to Speaker John Ash, who is similar to Peter, but with an addition of a super geeky intellect as well. And befriending him offered me an extremely good reason to explore quantified reward systems (the evolution of money), so that I could totally revamp and finish my design of a universal guide to telling our stories for AI-type systems, which turned into something like the internet 3.0 (a healthy, democratic, nervous system for our planet). Which is also likely to lead me to finishing my theory of everything. The universal algorithm. God. Entropy. Evolution. Life, the universe, and everything.

Nice.

And, without you pushing me, I never would have been in Palermo, where I had to apply for SSI/SSDI, which led me to getting SSI and US$, which led me to getting Bitcoin, and then you led me to coming to Massachusetts again (to go to court to deal with that crazy old thing we did), which led me to getting SSDI, which is leading me to coming very close to getting a home for us all, including CREATE Space, and also led me to hanging around MIT and AI folks, which led me to thinking about making something for technology/AI to learn about humanity as it’s primary goal.

Bringing all this full circle.

It’s all happening! Still slowly. But still happening. The future I wrote about for us in Dragonfly, or something like that story, seems almost close enough to touch now.

I love you. No matter where you are, you are always in my heart, and my soul, and my thoughts, and my desires. You gave me a core belief in myself, a purpose, and a reason to value my ideals, even when things seemed so hopeless. (And you literally gave me directions when I was, also literally, lost in the dark, to get to that edge of land and sea and sky, in California, where I gave up my old beliefs of the world needing to be better, and offered myself to the universe as her servant, as I helped her create a better world.)

And I hope that some day very soon I can help you find everything you need for your own beautiful, brilliant, compassionate, passionate soul to let go of the old stories of the past, embrace a wide open potential future, and awaken and expand your most good, true, and beautiful self out into reality.

You are always, always, always, welcome in my life, wherever you want to be in it.

I dream of holding your hand again.

And walking in the world beside you, as we discover, and create, our future.

a love letter

With so much gratitude, I offer the Earth…

The Architecture for Planetary Procreation! – a new algorithm for a future internet that is fully aimed at serving the input and output needs of the whole planet.

It’s both a pattern for evolving our stories and visions of a better future, in a healthy, emergent, decentralized way, and also a design for organizing an entire planet’s worth of life’s offerings and requests, in a healthy, democratic, centralized way. It’s a grand architecture for categorizing and directing content of all manner, for the most effective use, in the form of a noosphere, aka, a global nervous system!

Here’s a video explaining a bit about the purpose of it.

And here’s an updated version of the Maslow 2.0 hierarchy of needs which describes the next level of detail for the architecture process.

It’s time to play!

Want to join me?

The Big Picture:

My big goal that is getting very much closer, thanks to generous donations, is starting a non-profit community resource hub with resident artists, techies, and educators all working with the community to find creative solutions using available resources to serve the needs of the community members freely and unconditionally so that everyone can be their best possible selves. I’m currently (Summer 2018) starting to seriously look for (very cheap) property, ideally an old farm, probably in mid-coast Maine, and seeking folks who can help figure out the legal stuff of starting a non-profit or whatever, and putting the property into a trust so that it’s always there to serve the needs of those who live there.

I’ve also created a Patreon creator account for those who believe that my work is valuable and who have an excess number of banking points (aka $’s, £’s, ¥, or whatever).

You are a valuable resource

.

“Each person is uniquely qualified at something. They have some specific knowledge, capability, and desire that nobody else in the world does. That’s just purely from the combinatorics of human DNA and development. And so your goal in life is to find out the people… the project… the art that needs you the most. Because there’s something out there just for you.”

~Naval Ravikant

.

Your uniqueness makes you fit into the universe in some special way, that no one else could. The same is true for every other animal, vegetable, mineral, etc., in the universe. We are all capable of something that someone, somewhere, absolutely needs. Our goal in life is to find out what that is.

a bit more going with the flow – part 2: the extra good stuff

Here is the second part to my little video intro to an idea about how to have more productive flow in our relationships with the world. This covers the real deal flow stuff in our relationships where we find others to support and create with.

Enjoy!

a little bit of going with the flow

Here is a little video intro to an idea about how to have more productive flow in our relationships with the world. It’s just a funny way to think about what we want to do, and how we can do it more effectively by exploring the world around us a bit more, to seek out those who want what we want to express, and want to express what we want to get.

Enjoy!

The title of this is a good old fashioned bait and switch, really. That’s because I want to talk about the question itself. I want to talk about these concepts of “right and wrong” and “true and false”.

These ideas are based in a limited, one dimensional, linear view of reality, which, while useful sometimes, is generally ineffective in the long term, and/or on large scales. To get a more effective view of reality, we can look at things from a higher dimension, with more complexity, seeing how reality is like a tree branching outwards in a fractal pattern. It’s not always easy! But it’s worth it if we want to find good solutions to our problems and gain more joy and meaning in life.

Ultimately, from the perspective of the center of the universe, “right” is just a subjective direction. All directions are “right” if every direction is available and interesting and moving reality forward, or “true”, just like every branch of a tree is the right branch.

So, whatever you do, and whomever you are, is what’s right, from the universe’s perspective.

TWTS – The Best… For What Purpose?

.

When we are asking for the “best” option or solution to a problem, it’s very useful to also be clear about:

Why are we asking the question? (Who, specifically, are we trying to help, and what are we specifically trying to help them get or do?)

How are the complex probabilities, and values of each option/solution, being simplified (to reach a single “best” answer)?

Bias, aka, subjective perspective, is a necessary part of a healthy, diverse system, but it can be problematic when we’re not aware of why individuals are coming up with dramatically different answers to what can seem, on the surface, like the exact same question.

For example, when asking an important question such as “Do we want to vaccinate ourselves and/or our children?” we can look at what our own, personal, goals are in life, what the options available to us are, how we give weight to the different possibilities, and what the probability is that the “best” choice is going to help us achieve our goals, relative to what the probabilities are that the other choices will get us to where we want to be.

And then we can seek to understand all of these things — goals, available options, and assessed probabilities — for everyone else who’s asking the same question and getting different answers, whether those others are animals, vegetables, or minerals even (computers, etc.).

Of course, understanding why their “weird” answers are the “best” from their perspective doesn’t mean that our own best answers aren’t the best for us. We might not need to change our own ideas about the best answers to our own problems when learning about others at all, since our own goals and options are probably different. But even so, getting to know a little more more about others’ thought processes is just a healthy way to feel more comfortable with the diversity of goals, and approaches to those goals, that life creates.

Or, we can skip the deep exploration of why and how, and just trust that life is doing what it needs to do, as we individually learn how to take excellent care of the specific people, places, and things that we find most precious.

Also, ultimately, we can become aware of the reality that life, as a whole, has to explore all the different options for all the different tactics, so that every time living organisms are thrust into new situations and new environments, there is someone, somewhere, capable of navigating through the new territory effectively, specifically because of their particularly abnormal modus operandi.

As strange as others’ answers might seem to us, and our answers might seem to them, all of our answers, and our thinking processes, are probably important for the success of life as a whole.
