A Closed Mind Clings to Antiquity, Legacy, Dying Models and Their Carcasses

 

The New Virtual Organization World

It's a New Principled and Civilized World, It's Virtual and It's Organized








What is the difference between an Open Mind and a Closed Mind?  

On the surface, this seems like a straightforward question which deserves a straightforward answer.  The sort of answer that most people should be able to easily and effortlessly grasp and understand.   However, that is not the case at all.  In fact, it is just the opposite.   

And why is that, you might ask?   

Well, that's because if you have a closed mind, there is no way on God's green earth that I would ever be able to get through to you (i.e., pry open the lock on the fortifications which keep your mind impenetrable and totally unreceptive to any new information which may alter your worldview and/or sense of self and reality).   Hence the reason why it is called a "closed" mind.

However, that being said ::: just because it is an exercise in futility for me or anyone else to try to get through to you if you have a closed mind :::  does NOT mean that you yourself cannot open up your own mind.  For the simple reason that YOU are the only person who holds the key to the lock on these fortifications which keeps new and conflicting information at bay.  

On the other hand, if you already have an open mind, you would already know the answer to that question and any attempt on my part to provide you with a response would be the equivalent of "preaching to the choir."

So now that we've gotten that out of the way, let me attempt to answer the original question and leave it up to you to determine if you have an Open Mind.   In the absence of an Open Mind, you can readily infer that you fit in the Closed Mind category.

Clear Signs of  An Open Mind

You have an Open Mind if all of the following apply to you:
  • If you believe that people are capable of leading themselves.
  • If you believe that people should learn how to lead themselves.
  • If you believe it is impossible for any person or entity to lead others, and thus refuse to lead others.
  • If you know - or are willing to learn - the difference between the words "conscious" and "consciousness."
  • If you understand the difference between "knowledge" and "intelligence." 
  • If you believe that you possess the same amount of intelligence as every other human being.
  • If you understand the difference between "having intelligence" and "using your intelligence."
  • If you understand that, in the grand scheme of things,  knowledge is infinite, and thus there can never be an end or limit to "knowledge discovery."
  • If you understand that, in the grand scheme of things, intelligence is infinite,  and thus there is no limit to "the amount of intelligence" we have access to.  
  • If you are willing to concede the possibility that you may not even exist in accordance with our current definition of existence.
  • If you believe that Wisdom is infinite.   Thus no person or entity can claim to be in possession of Wisdom.  Hence, one can only engage in a perpetual Search for Wisdom. 
  • If you believe that no single individual or entity can impart Wisdom to others.
  • If you believe that Enlightenment is infinite.  Thus no individual or entity can claim to be Enlightened.  Hence, one can only engage in a perpetual Search for Enlightenment. 
  • If you believe that no person or entity can Enlighten others.
  • If you refuse to be validated by others (medals, prizes, awards, followers, publicity, etc.)
  • If you understand that "Success" is an illusion and a distraction,  and thus refuse to strive for and be enslaved by the lures and trappings of success.
  • If you understand that "Power" is an illusion and a distraction, and thus refuse to strive for and be enslaved by the lures and trappings of power.
  • If you understand that "Wealth" is an illusion and a distraction,  and thus refuse to strive for and be enslaved by the lures and trappings of wealth. 
  • If you understand that your Consciousness is distinct from your physical body and that the Real YOU is your Consciousness.   That means you can never die and will never die in accordance with our current definition of death.  Thus No Individual or Entity In the Universe has any power and control over you.   Hence, any power and control that others have over you are those which have been granted to them by YOU.   In other words, fuck the powers-that-be.   YOU have the power. 
  • If you believe that YOU are the only master of your own destiny.  Live and Let Live.
  • If you are willing to question every single bit of information that you have ever acquired since you came into this world and thus are willing to explore other interpretations and even conflicting information.       

 Clear Signs of  a Closed Mind

You have a Closed Mind if you have any sort of difficulty trying to reconcile the aforementioned signs of an open mind with your current understanding of reality and the world around you.   However, that being said, YOU hold the key to the lock on the fortifications which prevent any disturbance to your closed mind.   Thus, the decision to remain with a Closed Mind is entirely up to you.

The following tools are available to anyone who exhibits the symptoms of a closed mind and is sincere about learning how to undo the damage:

Will Quahl Make History and Become the Blockchain Version of PayPal?

The New Virtual Organization World

It's a New Principled and Civilized World, It's Virtual and It's Organized





Upon the launch of PayPal back in 1998, I became one of the early adopters of their "then-revolutionary" merchant payment technology.  For any online small business and consumer - including every single one of my small business clients - PayPal was, literally and figuratively speaking, a real godsend.   The rest is history.

On that note, while on LinkedIn, I came across a posting from one of my contacts  about Quahl, a so-called revolutionary blockchain version of a new payment system founded by some ex-PayPal developers or stakeholders.  A payment system which uses its own namesake cryptocurrency - Quahl.   

Besides the fact that they are ex-PayPal stakeholders,  two (2) things immediately caught my attention and sparked my curiosity:   

  • As most of you reading this article are already aware of,  I am also the founder of Digital Currency Consortium and have written extensively and published on LinkedIn, XING,  Virtual Organization Management Institute Repository, and other forums many articles regarding CloudCoin, the world's first bona fide digital currency - not cryptocurrency - since I have direct and personal knowledge of and experience with the digital currency.  (There is a difference between a bona fide digital currency and a cryptocurrency).   

Thus, I have a very strong interest in learning as much as possible about this new blockchain technology payment system and cryptocurrency namesake; how it fits into the "digital currency" scheme of things; and does it have the potential to become another "revolutionary" endeavor by these ex-PayPal stakeholders?  

  • Second, other than the fact that they are literally giving away Quahl to the public at large in order to encourage mass adoption of the Quahl cryptocurrency prior to releasing any information about the Quahl blockchain technology payment system itself and its launch - I can understand the secrecy part since I am now in a somewhat similar position - I became curious as to why an invitation link  (you are welcome to use this one) from a current Quahl recipient was required in order to obtain these free quahls.  I soon found out the method to the madness. It's a brilliant move.     

Thus, I now have a keen interest in others who would like to share their insights on the development of this so-called new, revolutionary blockchain technology payment system as well as their personal knowledge of and/or experience with Quahl. 

Are We Witnessing the Making of a Blockchain Version of PayPal? 

In conclusion, I am very excited to witness this new development in the blockchain technology  merchant payment space and wish all the players much success.  

The real question that I now have in my head is:  Will Quahl make history and become the blockchain version of PayPal?

Insanity Is the Rejection of Sanity and a Precursor to Knowledge Discovery

 

The New Virtual Organization World

It's a New Principled and Civilized World, It's Virtual and It's Organized






Insanity is the rejection of Sanity and a precursor to Knowledge Discovery.   To understand what I mean by that, read the prequel of this article:  Sanity Is the Conformity to Insanity and Absurdities(I know it's a real mind-bender.)

Oh, how I wish that I was born in an Insane World which rejected Sanity.  Indulge me a bit as I imagine for just a few seconds what life would be like:  
  • I would be immersed in a sea of humanity which is continually striving to make the transition from Human Beings to Intelligent Beings.
  • I would be engulfed in a world of Intelligent Beings who derive great pleasure in Collaboration, Knowledge Discovery and a never ending Search for Wisdom and Enlightenment.  
  • Every single member of the human race would come to realize how precious and priceless we all are - a gift to the universe.  (Instead of today's bunch of slaves, biological machines, morons, primitive and barbaric savages.)
  • Every single human being would come to understand that we are all members of One Human Race and that our Creator gifted us all with Paradise - the planet that we currently inhabit - and that our ultimate cause is Human Evolution so we can eventually travel side-by-side with our Creator throughout the cosmos and marvel at the beauty of Creation.   
  • We would all come to realize that the Only Real Currency that we possess and which is available for mining is Our Intelligence, and thus the need for a new "Civilized World Financial System." 
(I am fully aware that there isn't a single human being on this planet reading this article who truly understands what I mean by that.  However, that being said, being able to guess or surmise the meaning is a monumental step in the right direction.)
  • Referring to an Intelligent Being as Royalty, Your Highness, Your Majesty, Your  Excellency, Your Honor, Powerful Leader, Leader of The Free World, Star, Superstar, Celebrity, Mogul, Millionaire, Billionaire or Trillionaire would be considered childish, clownish and The Ultimate Insult.
  • When presented with an opportunity to advance the cause of Human Evolution, no human being on planet Earth will ever again utter any of these primitive, pitiful, disgraceful, shameful, disgusting, cowardly, spineless, slavish, ignorant, infantile, imbecilic, idiotic, dehumanizing, and crass  statements:  
    • "Sorry, but I need to make a living"    
    • "Hey, what can I tell you, man.  That's the way of the world and there is nothing anybody can do about it" 
    • "I need to be pragmatic.  My family comes first" 
    • "Say what you will.  However, as much as I hate to say it, this is the world that we live in and I got no other choice" 
    • "Sorry, it's the law and there is nothing I can do about it" 
    • "I know it's not the right thing to do, however, I got to do what I got to do"
    • "I know it's wrong but I cannot afford to disobey a lawful and direct order from my superiors" 
    • "I was just following orders"
    • "I am just following orders"
    • "I can't afford to go against the powers-that-be" 
    • "I fear for my life and my loved ones"
    • "Man, they've got me by the balls and, frankly, I cannot afford to endanger my life or jeopardize everything that I've spent my entire life building.  I got to do what they tell me to do or else pay the consequences" 
    • "Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God"
    • "The State has a monopoly on force and violence.  Thus I cannot afford to draw the ire of the State."
    • "We'll take it to the Supreme Court" 
    • "We have a duty to obey our leaders and to sacrifice for the greater good"
    • "Man, I don't care what anybody says, life is all about money. Without money, I can't pay my rent and the necessities and will be thrown out in the street. So, unless I am getting a paycheck and benefits from you, good luck with whatever it is you're doing" 
    • "How much money are you now making doing this thing that you're talking about?"
    • "Are you making any money?"
    • "What kind of money are we talking about?"
    • "How far along are you with this thing that you are talking about?" 
    • "What you're talking about sounds pretty big and very impressive.  Anybody backing you?" 
    • "Who is in with you on this?"
    • "Who else is in with you on this?"
    • "How many people on your team do you have working on this project?"
    • "Besides yourself, I don't see any other names on your website, so who else is in with you on this?"
    • "Are you looking for investors?"
    • "I want to invest in your project as long as you can guarantee me a minimum return of 5% on my investment.  Just send me your business plan so we can get the ball rolling" 
    • "I can lend you anywhere from $50-300 million dollars. Send me your business plan."                
  • We would all understand the need to make the transition from Human Beings to Intelligent Beings.
  • We would all understand the need for Principled Geopolitical Leadership, Political Evolution and  Human Evolution - as well as the need to dedicate ourselves to that proposition.
Well, that is just a small sample of things - an aper├žu - of what life would be like.  Alas, what a shame I will never get to live in that world and it saddens me to say that it may take hundreds to thousands to millions of years for mankind to ever see that day come to fruition - especially when, in fact,  it is something that is now within our reach.  Better late than never!  
Notwithstanding the foregoing bleak assessment of mankind, we have to start somewhere, and I am glad and honored to be a part of that journey.

So, Where Does It All Begin?

It all begins when you make a conscious decision to reject Sanity by choosing Insanity(I know it's a mind-bender, however, one day it will all make perfect sense to you.)  At which point, you will be able to embark on a search for Knowledge Discovery which will eventually lead you on a quest to make the transition from Human Being to Intelligent Being.   

Your Journey Will Lead to One or More of These Exciting Places








Over time, that means your journey will lead you to one or more of these exciting places and documents advocating the cause of Human Evolution:

Sanity Is the Conformity to Insanity and Absurdities

 

The New Virtual Organization World

It's a New Principled and Civilized World, It's Virtual and It's Organized




What makes a person, thought, idea, event or occurrence (i.e., any proposition) sane?   

The answer is very simple:  A proposition is deemed to be sane whenever when we have been conditioned and programmed over a relative period of time to accept it as such and conform to it.   

Thus, any proposition that we have not been conditioned and programmed to accept over a relative period of time and conform to is judged to be insane.  

In turn, the resulting contradictions between our understanding of what is sane and insane give rise to what we call "the absurdities of life."   

Therefore, sanity, insanity, and the absurdities of life are inextricably tied together and form the basis of what we call our "worldview of human existence."

Thus, it can be said that the absurdities of life are the ingredients which lie between the two slices of sanity and insanity in order to form our "worldview of human existence" sandwich.  

Therefore, it can be said that our worldview of human existence sandwich consists of  the absurdities of life ingredients wedged between the two slices of sanity and insanity. 

What Difference Does It Make?

Once you understand the difference between Sanity and Insanity, 
  • Then and only then, can you begin to make sense of the world around you and the world that you live in.    
  • Then and only then, can you begin to understand the role that Conditioning and Programming for Acceptance and Conformity to any Proposition play in your current worldview of human existence.   
  • Then and only then, will you be able to observe in living color the process by, and the extent to,  which you are being conditioned and programmed to accept and conform to any proposition - like a conscious patient undergoing brain surgery without any sort of anesthesia. 
  • Then and only then, will you be able to begin to question every single narrative that was used to condition and program you.
  • Then and only then, can you begin to rid your mind of all the shackles as well as shed all the vestiges of human slavery.   
  • Then and only then, you can begin to use your own intelligence in order to make the transition from Human Being (i.e., a slave, biological machine, infantile, primitive, barbaric and savage) to Intelligent Being. 
  • Then and only then, can you begin to understand the difference between Cooperation and Collaboration.     
At which point, you can begin to embark on the road to Human Evolution.  

What Is the Big Deal About Human Evolution?

That is the only way for human beings to get off  The Hamster Wheel of Human History.  The article Let Us Manifest! provides a great deal of insight into the reasons why.
