Great read: the abolishment of political boarders!

We are all born to this one planet why does one man as a virtue of geographical luttery inherit a better life than any other? Should this discrimination not disgust us? As we seek to reduce and ultimately rid ourselves of discrimination, should these false divides not fall too?

Should we not recognise that we are all truly equal and should not be subject to the whims of political leadership to disallow us to traverse this world?

Freedom of movement allowed us to avoid extinction by not concentrating on one area beset by tragidy. We are less free today than our early forefathers.

Love this thinking hope you enjoy the article!

I am not any one thing and neither are you.

I just read this article: http://www.wired.com/2014/09/cargo-drones-in-africa/ Which I strongly encourage you to do as well. In short (very short) it is how drones could allow Africa to catch up economically.

It was a fascinating read and very thought provoking, it eventually lead me to the conclusion that I am not really a scientist, there isn’t a category of one thing that I would subscribe to. I am only passionately curious ((not my words)I try to be, I actively feed this side of my character). I feed it with fascination and drive it like the hounds of hell with the fear that I’ll lose touch. I desire to be on the cutting edge, I desire discovery and development. Science.

I often I fail to understand the entire subject but I beg, borrow and steal at random those aspects I do comprehend and reshape them within my world view and tack them on the side of my understanding of “the state of things”. I desire to one day use my collected knowledge for self gain. Business.

I want more than to benefit myself though. I want to build something that others can take part in and use to lift themselves out of poverty. I want to inspire people to better themselves and their assigned station. I don’t believe in charity, not in the sense that it is a on way transaction. It has to be self sustaining. One transaction that inspires many more that seek to uplift and drive culture and learning forward. Philanthropy.

This is not me seeking to display my virtues. I am of the opinion that that little voice inside you constantly crying out for more, that may be your brain braying for stimulation should be listened to, but watched and cultivated. I don’t think we need to be one thing. I want to take part in so many multidisciplinary projects. I want to test my hands and myself on so many levels. Project management.

There is little I can do about a conclusion here. These are hopes and dreams. I hope that I never live up to my own desires, that I will continue to be driven to try more, to invest more of myself to reap more experience. Prophet.

I urge you to do the same. Inspirational.

New age thinking: Hybrid thinking

I said I’d be posting more TED talks and this one is a look into a potential future where brains and computers are not seperated by any distance of space and indeed computers begin to inhabit us and enrich our thoughts and culture. Better living through technology i believe is the apt expression.

I found this fascinating. I am constantly looking to future tech for ways to avoid death basically. I think we live in a really exciting time but I can only imagine what the future potentially has in store for us space travel being one tiny example. But I want to get down to the bottom of the ocean safely! I want to explore and enrich my understanding of this amazing planet.

There is so much more to know and being able to plug into the cloud as this TED talk proposes seems utterly exhilarating.
