In history, this is why I suspect that Monarchies across the lands have relinquished power, in way of increased power of the people, by the people. Democracy is just a much more logical thing to understand succumbing to, because the formation of societal power is approachable, open, and understandable from a natural perspective: the perspective that, ultimately, what democracy does is it provides a mirror for societies to view themselves, as I wrote about in my piece “Thinking About Stars” almost a year-and-a-half ago, which garnered relatively sizeable fame on Facebook back then. And, as we learn from the Princess, mirrors are important so that we can observe-to-improve.
To get quality-driven production underway at scale, you need a quality-driven market. Ultimately, a quality-driven market will operate on a contract defining a competition where the definition of victory (being Best) is defined, by providing rules for achievement of the state of victory.
For victory must be achieved in order for victory to be defined, since the objective definition* of victory would have to be a story told of how it was achieved, so that comparison against the rules of the contract may be carried out in order, in turn, to define that the victory was indeed achieved in-line with the contract, confirming the value of the victory as an output of the contract, the potential of which was identified pre-contract, as initial motivation for signing of the contract, itself.
So you could say that contracts turn motivations into potential-for-reality. But reality must be proven, before it is – a contract only starts the process of finding out the truth of the outcome, and doesn’t guarantee any results of operation in reality. That is why the legal system exists. Because people will have contractual disputes – now and always.
*the subjective definition is the experiencing of the victory itself. Should the subjective definition of the value of the experience be More > Less, then the competition is likely to be carried out again after reaching quantory, as the value of the experience is more as opposed to less
A thought-framework reminder
The Art, continued from here
Creades and Dressgård were eager to reach the Forests of Aeki, eager to obtain the Instructions of the Cities. But the warning about the Cityscape, from the Lady of Lemuria, dragged their feet. They did not know what to make of it. They did not understand the risk of getting sucked in to something that they wanted so very much.
What risk could there be in going after that which they wanted so very much? Was that not what Europaea was being built for? To go after the dreams? After all, the dreams were why they ventured in. The dreams were why they took Europaea on. To challenge the world they lived in by building it themselves. Indeed, to challenge themselves at a higher level than before.
But alas it was so that the Lady of Lemuria had been to the Deep North, and Dressgård along with Creades had not! What could they possibly know about what would await them in the Deep North, if they had not been there before?! The Lady of Lemuria held within a slight rage at home, thinking these things after Creades and Dressgård had passed, after she had given her warning.
The Lady of Lemuria had spent years venturing, in silence, the rock-solid geography of the Deep North. She had seen the supposed perfection that created the Instructions of the Cities, hidden ages before into the Forests of Aeki by the absurdly-mystical Northern designers – the foreparents of Dressgård. It is this connection that explains why Dressgård knew to head to the Forest of Aeki, after meeting Creades, after their discussion about cities. But Dressgård had never been to the home of the foreparents. This was not disclosed to Creades, who put trust into Dressgård to show the way towards the cities.
Absurdly, the Northern designers knew how to design everything, except their own name, which is why they are referred to as only the absurdly-mystical Northern designers. It was because they had no name that they were then also referred to as mystical, because what would it be like to have no name? To be undefined in tongue, only in shape? The thought, the experience of having it, was mystical to all who had dealt with the absurdly-mystical Northern designers.
This was alongside being thought of as absurd – at the same time as mystical. Simultaneously, the absurdly-mystical Northern designers had no idea of their reputation with others, and this was what made being with them so absurd, alongside being mystical. They were absurd because they were only concerned with the reputation of theirselves, with theirselves, and they are very open about it. It is this that makes it so apparent that they cannot be either absurd or mystical – they must be both, for the combination of not having a name and not caring for the reputational value provided by others makes them so enchanting that they need at least these two features in their description.
But to have no name, thought Creades. To have no moniker with which to define oneself with? What type of being can be like that? I should wish to meet these absurdly-mystical people to experience it for myself: the absurd-mysticity of them. Of not being able to give a compliment to their character, or one of any value, for they would not accept it. Indeed, they wouldn’t be able to remember it: not if they tried.
It was at this very moment, upon reaching a field at the foot of a cliff, that a light flashed through the sight, showing Creades the most beautiful Cityscape of all time. Creades felt sucked in. Creades now knew what the Lady of Lemuria had talked about – the sucking – but did not understand what the warning was for. It was the most wonderful feeling ever. Everything was at Creades’ grasp, nothing he could imagine wasn’t available.
“Why build new Cities, when you can enjoy an old City? The best of all – built across generations – with the experience of history bringing you everything you need?”
This was a whisper from the voice of the invisible winds, as natural and soft as a spring breeze after the departing of the ice. Even though only Creades saw the flash of the Cityscape, then also Dressgård heard the voice, although Dressgård heard it deeper within – almost silently, more like a relaxation of the stomach than a sound wave in the ear. The invisible winds were considered highly valuable sources of information, and it was rumoured that they hailed from the Deep North. If you gave a thought to the invisible winds of the sky, you felt as though you gained a hope from the lands of the Earth – from Europaea itself.
Creades let go first – of the ground, that is. Creades allowed the Cityscape to continue sucking, without time for a second thought. Dressgård seemed to follow suit – Creades did not care, however. So alluring was the Cityscape that Creades did not look back, flying head first towards the rock of the cliff beyond the field. It wasn’t that Creades was really flying. It was more like Creades dropped out of this reality, into another, where the cliff sucked in minds.
Before departing the scene for good, Creades thought about the Lady of Lemuria. “Too fast”, she had said. “Don’t get sucked in too fast.” Creades entered the world of the rock – containing the Cityscape, it seemed – wondering how to tweak the sucking speed downwards, just in case the Lady’s warning had value in it, after all…
Should the lady be trusted?
Imagine yourself a Child standing in a warm, cosy forest filled by trees – whichever trees are to your liking to be imagined, but they have to be the type where there is trunk first, branches later (when looking up, that is).
Now, to tweak the imagined tree with a little feature: imagine the branches being large and individual closer to the ground, but thicker in number and thinner in size getting closer towards the top.
The imaginary metaphor I’m going for is that the tree is like Family, and we, as Children, begin climbing up the Family Tree, once we find which one is ours to climb. The branches closer to the ground are the closest Family connections as measured in time, whereas the branches higher up are further and further away in time – the Elders.
The Children occupy one big branch close to the ground, slightly older kids the groupings of medium branches a bit higher up, and the Elders control whole, field-y breadths of upper leafy-branch area, where the branches are thicker in number but thinner in size.
The picture I’m painting is that the Elders might have thinner, more brittle branches, but they have more of them, for they have lived longer, and thus accumulated more branches and moved naturally towards the top of the tree. Each branch is like a voice – a memory: a knowing, based on experience, of what to say or think or do when a situation comes up. Children have least, Elders have most, ultimately everyone advances across time in the same direction, and we all get our fair share.
This is a very broad generalisation – of course – since I’m not taking into account any realities of individuality on the ground. But – that said – this isn’t a worthless thought. Quite the contrary.
When I look at the continued evolution of the Global Story, based on societal data (news) in the different media I use, I am naturally processing (by way of my body’s capacity to calculate) what the IT-people call big data. If I am considering the EU, then I am processing the state and direction of a Continent of hundreds of millions of people, linked to the Other Continents to define the state and direction of the World across time. Big stuff, in reality.
In thinking of matters at this societal scale – practically cosmic proportions of people when compared to just yourself and your family (relative normalcy) – it is not possible to avoid having to make generalisations about the nature of humanity in order to be able to make reasoned conclusions concerning practical matters in hand.
That is why understanding the general nature of power across time is so important. How accumulated memories and opinions on said memories (combined with the skill of delivery) are like equity that people across generations use to project power, to guide their life in a direction more to their liking, in line with their morals. Children thus have less power, Elders naturally have more, by way of the nature that time gathers memory (in itself, as it progresses, across itself).
How the voices of memories circulating across the societal sphere are caught and distributed, if you will, by the Trees of the Generations, cannot be known: unless you are a Wizard, which I am not. In Politics, we just see the end results: news in the media and statistics on the Internet, and then we act based upon them, according to our Best Knowledge. The individual stories of Citizens met during tenure provides warmth, empathy, to the calculation – seeing the reality of what statistics mean, on the ground, gives them workable value.
The point of understanding the Trees is not that you should seek any perfection to your answers in a societal situation: anything where masses of individual people are involved. Quite the contrary: the Trees only provide a general framework to think in safely about the societal story. With enough study of the present and the past, the understanding of the state of even an entire nation or more can be formed by being able to think in line with the Tree.
How is history forming itself at the moment? How is the story of the past progressing through the present, towards the future? Are we on a steady course, or do I need to consider direction-altering actions, using the power I have to do so?
Seeing how the accumulated good stories or suppressed traumatic ones across time build pressure and impact the behaviour of your peers is a way to bring the Tree’s power home, in a way, because everyone living on a land is connected by way of the land’s story, and thus interfamilial comparisons through history can always be made to better understand one’s own standing in present society.
To discover the progress of history, happening in the moment, one needs to look closer to home, than one might think, to fully see how the coming to of conclusions is done, by the people. That is to say: since you are one amongst the people, the fastest way to discovering the workings of the people, is to first understand the person, within the people, that you know the best, which is yourself. Then begins the comparison of yourself to others and how your differing life stories impact the way you see your worlds, followed by the beginnings of the formation of your opinions on society because, once you compare yourself to another, in relative terms, you have entered a societal discussion – that is: something concerning something more than just yourself.
History makes us all relatives, and makes society completely relative to our own personal viewpoint within it. Learning the language of a historical cross-societal issue that is still unsolved – seeing the formation of the story through the branches, in all their complex directions – allows for the innovation of new language, in the form of politics and its delivery, to heal those wounds. There is nothing like the power of providing someone the experience of being heard, and the Tree allows history’s voice to be heard, if it is used in study of the formation of history.
The Tree is like a muscle: working with it, builds it.
I don’t want to talk about the multiverse, but I do know about the Multiworld we inhabit, ourselves, right here on Earth. Multiworld as in how we all look at it from our own viewpoints.
Artistically: There is One Earth, and a whole bunch’a Worlds ’round lookin’ at it, ‘cuz we all lookin’ at it from wh’rever – here, there, the edge of the Universe, whatever: our own World, which we co-inhabit, with people that we know, and people that we don’t. Like a huge-ass Venn diagram.
But. So. When the leading nations of the world gather to discuss things, it is like the lands whose names the nations bear coming together, pressing in upon each other in an epic pressure kettle until some contract is formed for the end of the gathering, to be presented to the public, as an artefact of what was discussed and, perhaps, agreed for implementation. As common citizens, we can only imagine the emotions of the leaders carrying out each deed of highest historical guidance (signing the highest contracts). At points, the emotions must indeed be rather epic, given their varying understandings of the societal pressures in play – viewed from the inside, with the inside-class information.
I foresaw the need for a map to enter such a world, should I ever imagine myself in the shoes of the leaders. Because, entering a negotiational situation such as politics everpresently is, I would want to understand the nature of the negotiation – at the largest scale – so that I could be well-practiced at zooming-in on relevant everyday leadership situations, as they come at me, once I am in office.
At the ground level of local politics, being yourself is mostly the smartest option, as long as you are an averagely well-behaved person. The average local politician is under practically-zero media coverage. In turn, imagining the table at the highest peak, I would imagine being yourself is exceptionally difficult, given you are under full media coverage, representing the flag of a land being pressed with the mass of its people against the masses of other peoples living in other lands, represented by other flags, carried into the presently-pressing situation, by the other people around the table around which you, in your imagination, sit.
So – as a Man of Eternal Practice – I thought a map, for practicing entry into the imagined world of the table at the top, was necessary. It wasn’t too difficult to draw – I mean, essentially, it just shows that politicians need to look in two directions, all at once, at a very high-level of responsibility (representing people > just themselves), and try and work out, in real-time, the correct words to let out of their mouths.
Call them whatever you will – politicians work an intense job, comparable throughout all its levels to the feats of athletes-all-around, from the local to the global level – regardless of flag or emblem. At its very highest global peaks – given how much influence they have over the living conditions of all the rest, despite the pop culture influence of physical athletes – I would say politicians rise higher than the rest of the athletes in respect-demanded.
The Quantum Mechanics
also known as
Politicians – the biggest-impact potential in-person proof, of being able to make things happen, to be had. And if it is had, then it is actually proven, by the person living in-the-person, doing the proving.
In a sentence: ”I am a politician. Wow. I pressed that button and schools sprung up like mushrooms. Quality schools: without mildew in the walls. I’m making it happen.”
Political Uncertainty Principle: you can never certainly know (you may certainly believe) where a politician stands and what you think about it, at the same time, unless you are a politician, yourself. As the standing of a politician is in constant motion, assuming the constant motion of society (which the politician is assumed to want to follow, since their earnings are dependent on following the motion of society: correctly interpreted, officially measured), the only way to simultaneously know where a politician stands and know what to think about it is to be the politician, catch your own strain of thought on an issue, build the strain until you’re convinced of its value and you understand what is now a thought you’ve built (regardless of where it originated from: this instruction, or somewhere else), and affirm to yourself what you think about the thought, that you now hold.
At that moment, you’ve come together, and you know where you stand and what you think about it, for sure, but once you do, the next moment is already at hand. So the question becomes: how long can you mind-hold on to the thought?
How long do you want to? Given which thoughts to consider?

This piece goes out to my Southern buddy, Matteo. Infrastructure – definitely: bridges don’t come down monthly in most places. IT: infrastructure of the future. Think about who you need to train.
There is a trend in thought going around that being a career politician is a bad thing. I disagree wholeheartedly – it is most definitely a good thing, because the operation of a societal organisation is a complex (yet simplifiable) task and understanding the natures of the people at Society’s various levels is a life’s work. We should, indeed, in my opinion, wish for higher-quality career politicians than what we are currently having, and I believe it is possible through the competition for the people’s understanding of the world that political competitors enter into, that it is higher-quality, which we shall have.
For New will always eventually overcome the Old, for ultimately the Old start to die and take many of their ways of thinking – based on their life experiences, not yours – with them, creating space for the emergence of new leaders. In a way, I see the most motivated of the new leaders as those who openly desire the wealth and reputation that societal success (with a clean conscience) can bring in life, for – thought of in a way – that is just the highest kiss a human being can give to Society: to strive to work for the benefit of all, only to have the most selfish of intentions, made possible by the continuous work of cleaning conscience and proving its cleanliness out in public, meaning everyone wins, which sounds like the goal.
The state of affairs in the world is not good. It is not that I lay any blame upon anybody in power about the state of current affairs, for the world has changed quickly and we are now seeing the feedback of primary Internet implementation – that is, the Internet is showing us what the world is really like: what we are like as a whole, as humans. But in saying that I do not lay blame upon anybody, then simultaneously that doesn’t slow me from thinking leadership change is necessary, since because of the change of everything from pre-Internet to with-Internet, it is just that I do not foresee the leaders of the past as having the modern intellectual skillset (not better or worse, just different, as we are separated in time) required to be able to see, in practice, what is possible with modern technology in terms of service-level improvements for ourselves and our children, in the future. I say this with all due respect – of course – but the capacity to see is most important when trying to lead.
Technology has the capacity to solve our financially-required efficiency issues and our organisationally-caused service quality issues, across the Europaean Continent, but it must be understood as it is by a modern generation in order to have better chances at being implemented well, from the top, for it is the modern generation that sees forward to family life on-going and ahead, and thus has the best chances of understanding what service quality and content – thought of technology-wise, as well – they wish to have. Put in short: those capable of imagining the future for themselves are better buyers for us all (as long as theirselves are kept in check, which is pretty much what politics and the publicity it brings does to you).
The Fun (continued from here)
“You must enter a new hall looking good.
It takes an entire City to properly dress a Continental Man (or Woman, or Child, etc.). For it takes a City to exchange information across Cities determining which is the best Continental style to be had (and which types of fabrics and models are available to test style-hypotheses), knowledge that is formed through competition between designers to have the best Fashion party across Cities, which they have in order to see each others styles and celebrate their Bestness; parties for which they pay by selling people on the idea of how good they look in clothes they’ve designed, a market that is dependent on the size of a City for a life-sustaining Fashion business to form to serve the people, and it would need to be life-sustaining, since clothes and Fashion, in general, are rather difficult forms of Craftspersonship that take a lifetime to learn and so, for Craftspersonship to exist, there must be lifetime businesses to attend to.
What I’m saying is that for you and the Tailor to have a little one-on-one: there needs to be a City. Because Cities build the foundations for the pinnacles of the lifetime businesses that generations of Craftspersons attend to, keeping history alive through the skills they inhabit, allowing us to drive into the future, based on the secured knowledge of the past, in ever-increasing comfort.”
As a descendant of the designers, Dressgård agreed with Creades, and they set off to find the directions on how to put Cities together, from the Forest of Aeki, just past the threshold into the Deep North of Europaea.
The Lady of Lemuria reminded them, however, to not forget about the fields. To not get sucked-in too fast, into the Cityscape…
2.9.2018: Olen henkilökohtaisista syistä vetäytynyt toistaiseksi politiikasta. Tämä sivu on oma tribuuttini itselleni, tehdyn ajatustyön summauksena jolla valmistauduin tulevaan. Päädyin ratkaisuun, että en ole vielä valmis julkiseen elämään. Ratkaisu syntyi varmatenkin tehdyn ajatustyön myötä kun huomasin, että vaikka olen ajatuksen tasolla alkanut saada maailmasta viime vuosien myllerryksen jälkeen taas kiinni, niin henkisesti tarvitsen paljon vakaamman peruspohjan elämälleni ennenkuin olen valmis lähtemään niin sanotusti “taistoon” korkeammalla kuin paikallispoliittisella tasolla. Ehkä jopa todennäköisesti joskus koittaa politiikkani aika, mutta nyt se ei ole. Ei tässä kuitenkaan mikään hukkaan mennyt ole – päinvastoin: todennäköisesti ajatukset alla ja muilla sivuilla ovat tyystin samat vuosikymmenenkin päästä.
Auki aamusta yöhön.
Päällimmäisin käytännön motivaationi EU:n Parlamenttiin:
Lakkauttaa EU:n parlamentti nykyisessä muodossaan ja aloittaa Euroopan Unionin johtamisjärjestelmän suoraviivaistus (tavoitteena yhtenäisyyden merkittävä korotus) purkamalla historiallinen komissio-parlamentti-neuvostot päätöksenteko- ja valtahirviö ja rakentamalla tilalle 150-henkisen Euroopan Unionin Senaatin, toimeenpanoa ylimmällä tasollaan valvovalla johtajistolla varustettuna. Tavoitteeni on rakentaa EU:n Senaatti siten, että sen jäseneksi noustaan vain EU:n jäsenvaltion parlamenttijärjestelmän ylimmästä päätöksentekokamarista (esimerkiksi Suomen Eduskunta), joka vahvistaa jäsenvaltioiden demokratiaa (pitämällä suorat äänestykset lähellä kotia ja siten keskimäärin ymmärrettävinä kansalaiselle) ja vahvistaa myös EU:n demokratiaa, sillä Senaatin päätöksentekijät olisivat määritelmällisesti kokeneempia työssään, joka nostaa todennäköisyyksiä sille, että he kykenevät suoriutumaan manner-skaalan politiikasta, joka on kuitenkin ihan eri tason ajattelua vaativaa huipputyötä kun sitä verrataan paikallisempaan yhteiskuntajohtamiseen.
Organisaation johdon yhtenäisyysaste ja toimeenpanokyky määrittelee organisaation hyvinvoinnin kehityspotentiaalin, sillä johdolla on suora vaikutus johdettavien hyvinvointiin. Jos johto on pullonkaulana kehitykselle, on vain ajan kysymys, että yhteiskunnalliset painetekijät luovat edellytykset muutoksen käynnistämiselle yksilöjoukkojen toimesta. Yhteiskunnallisesta kehityksestä jälkeenjäävä johto – kuten tänä päivänä laajasti näemme – luo itsensä tuhoavat paineet. EU:n johtamisjärjestelmä on vanhentumassa rajua tahtia maailmaa myllertävän muutostahdin mukana, ja uskoakseni ainoa tapa palauttaa pitkälle tulevaisuuteen kestävä vakaus on keskittää välittömän ja lyhyen aikajänteen toimenpiteet johtamisjärjestelmän kehitykseen, mannertamme vakauttaakseen ja sen voiman kautta myös koko maailmaa. Kun katsoo EU:n johtamisjärjestelmän äärimmäistä pirstoutuneisuutta ja jatkuvaa sisäistä kinaa, ei voi muuta kuin läimäistä itseään otsalle ja toivoa eläköitymistahdin kiihtyvän välittömässä lähitulevaisuudessa.
Pitkällä tähtäimellä näen EU:n mantereemme yhteisenä tuotantoketjun laadunvalvojana (jotta markkinamme toimivat puhtaasti), mantereelle olennaisimman runkoenergian ja -infran kehittäjänä ja ylläpitäjänä sekä turvallisuusorganisaationa omine puolustusvoimineen, joiden pääasiallinen arjen tehtävä on mantereen ulkorajojen suojaaminen. Kannatan hyvin tarkkaan määriteltyjä rajoja EU:n toimivallalle kun lähestytään alue- ja kuntatason toimintaa (ymmärtäen, että joskus näinkin on käytävä), joten pääsääntöisesti (insinöörikielellä ajateltuna) keskityn siihen, että Valtiot ja niiden sisältämät alueet ja kunnat ovat frontendiä, kun taas EU ja YK ovat backendiä ja mainframea. IT-insinöörit ymmärtänevät allaolevan ajatuksen parhaiten, mutta pienellä IT-opiskelulla kuka tahansa pystyy näkemään tietokonearkkitehtuurin suoraviivaisen järjen.
Kotimaan käytännönpolitiikan esimerkkejä:
Hei MAINOKSEN VASTAANOTTAVA LUONNOLLINEN HENKILÖ,
Kuten olemme jutelleet, olen ehdolla (vähintään) Europarlamenttivaaleissa ensi vuonna. Tämän viestin lopulla löydät ohjauksen nettisivujeni linkkipeliin jolla avaan vaalipelini vuodelle 2019, kutsumalla ihmiset tervetulleeksi tutustumaan avoimesti julkaisemaan ajatusmaailmaani – omaan henkilökohtaiseen mainokseeni ajatuskapasiteetistani. Olen keskittynyt sen harjoittamiseen ja itsevarmuuden vahvistamiseen pointtien tekemisessä, sillä poliittiset asiakysymykset ovat usein ennalta-arvaamattomia (ne myös kulkevat merkittävästi nopeampaa vauhtia edes-takas ja median kautta kaikkiin suuntiin) ja sen myötä itserakennetun ajatuksen tuomat mielenvahvuudelliset perustukset ovat entistä tärkeämpiä nykypäivän toimintaympäristössä. Etenkin mielen perustyökalujen – ajan ja rahan funktioiden – ymmärtäminen on ollut työni keskiössä.
Esitystapani on monilta kohdin taiteellista – kuten filosofia nyt yleensä onkin, sillä sen tarkoitus on pistää yleisö miettimään itse ja itseään – mutta ei kaikista kohdista. Toivottavasti ero taiteellisten ja tieteellisten hetkien välillä on riittävän selkeä: olen toki kyllä aika varma siitä, että ihmisten eri ajatustapojen myötä on todennäköistä, että monen mielestä näin ei tule olemaan. Muistattehan väärinymmärrysten varalta, että en tarkoita mitään pahalla – joitain asioita pitää vain joskus sanoa suoraan, että muutokset ajatustavoissa saadaan käyntiin.
Linkkipelin tarkoitus on tutustuttaa potentiaalinen äänestäjä ja/tai rahoittaja ajatusmaailmaani, jotta he voivat muodostaa etäluottamussuhdetta minuun ihmisenä – minulle tärkein poliittinen valuutta kaikista: että ihmiset tietävät minun olevan myös ihminen.
Sukellan ajoittain syväänkin filosofiaan, mutta en koe ajatusmaailmassani olevan mitään sellaista, mitä keskivertolukenut ihminen ei pystyisi ajatuskapasiteetiltaan käsittelemään. Toivottavasti olet valmiina kohtaamaan moraalikysymyksiä, sillä niitä on ajassamme paljon, jonka myötä niitä on käsiteltävä mahdollisimman avoimesti. Toivottavasti edustan hyvää esimerkkiä, mutta myös näissä näkemyksissä voi tapahtua muutosta ajan myötä, jos vasta-argumentit nykyisiä kantojani vastaan ovat omaa puolustustani parempia.
Syy syviin sukelluksiin ja korkeisiin avauksiin ajatusmaailmassani on hyvin yksinkertainen: se muutoksen aika, missä elämme, käytännössä pakottaa niihin.
On hyvin vaikeata kuvailla millaista on olla syntynyt 1980-luvun lopulla ja sen lähiympäristössä, mikäli ei ole syntynyt 1980-luvun lopulla tai sen lähiympäristössä. Meidän kapea sukupolvemme on kasvanut matalateknologisessa luonnossa ennen aikojen Internetin, sekä myös korkeateknologisessa luonnossa Internetin saapumisen myötä, jonka tahdissa olemme varttuneet ja astuneet työelämään.
Maailmankatsomuksemme muutoksen sisältä on oman tutkimukseni mukaan hyvin erilainen kuin ympärillä olevien ikäpolvien, sillä olemme myös juuri näinä vuosina saapumassa vanhemmuuden luonnollisiin leikkuri-ikiin ja moni meistä pohtii muutosta suhteessa tuleviin lapsiimme. Haluammeko sitä maailmankehitystä, mitä käsillämme nyt on?
Muutoksen tahti jossa – teknologian avustamana – tieto- ja rahamassojen liikenopeus on kasvanut on ollut merkittävää. Se on tuonut mukanaan paljon hyvää elämäämme, mutta myös uhkia – etenkin yhteiskunnan moraalitasapainon säilyttämisessä. Näiden muutoksien myötä, joiden keskellä olen ammatikseni työskennellyt, olen keskittänyt paljon ajatuskapasiteettiani ajan, rahan, vallan ja ihmisyyden pohdintaan, aina suhteessa meitä ympäröivään luontoon. Uskon, että tulet huomaamaan tämän ajatustyön tuotokset nettisivuihini tutustuessa.
Olethan valmiina tekemään omaa ajatustyötäsi ajatusmaailmassani temmeltäessä: filosofia ja sen tuoma mahdollinen maailmankuvan uudelleenkalibroinnin tarve vaatii aivojen lihastyötä – kuten aina ennenkin. Arvostan myös kriittistä palautetta, tietenkin. Hyvä viinilasillinen auttaa mielen salilla! Voin luvata, että otan huikan palautettasi lukiessa.
Nyt on aika alkaa ohjata yhteiskunnan alustaa entistä varovaisemmin, yhteistyössä yli mantereiden, Internetin tuomaa yhteiskunnallista kiihdytystilaa rauhoittaakseen ja taistoa ilmastonmuutosta vastaan kiihdyttäkseen.
Uskon vakaasti siihen, että kun on valmistautunut tuleviin mahdollisiin uhkiin hyvin ja rakentanut omaa ajatusmaailmaansa puolustuksekseen, niin pystyy syvän tason itseluottamuksella kohtaamaan taistoon astumisen mukana tulevan pelon. Mutta jos jotain opin laskuvarjohyppyuraltani, niin se on tämä: pieni pelko perseessä pitää mielen tarkkana ja vireänä, virheitä estääkseen. Mummiltani oppineena: virheitä ei tehdä tahallaan.

Time is relative to everything, especially the Philosophy of Sales. Sales stories are completely dependent on how far into the future you project an argument and what your capacities are in doing so, which is built on your capacity to understand the past and act in the moment. But, in general (as in: something which isn’t relative), it is fair to say that discussing these matters (anything sales-related) out in the open of the moment at hand will require many considerations on the spectrum of thought spanning quantity to quality in life, and a whole bunch of other factors, starting with morals.
Sales-in-practice at the highest levels
The definition of a revolution is everything collapsing in upon and rebuilding itself, all at the relative same time: not a moment, but a span of time that, looked at against immenser scales of time, is a flicker in the Grander Story. In turn, the definition of evolution is a lot more complex, since it requires grasping the immenser scales of time that make a momentous revolution possible in the relative moment – the framework for the work itself. For example, in business, evolutions often stem from scientific advances leading to technological innovations, that start spitting out products, creating revolutions across Industries.
Revolutions are very practical and happen by the power of the combined economical calculation of a population (be it an entire society or a company opting for a new service provider) coming together, whereas evolutions cannot be explained so simply. Put briefly: pretty much everyone has the ability to evaluate a revolutionary situation from their own perspective, but evolution requires a much deeper trust in the science of the Past for it to begin making sense. Many people can see the revolution happening in the moment, but not all can observe the underlying evolutionary factors that set the preconditions, beforehand, for the revolution to occur.
The observation of what is going on, ultimately, always happens in the moment, and that is where an understanding of the fundamental immaterial tools of time and money come into very real play. Seeing how things bend and twist themselves into form is a very real skill, enhanced by the power to impact the formation of the things. The Philosophy of Sales – at its highest levels – always takes into account the relativity of the stories at hand.
Time is, in closest essence, a feeling – a moment of consciousness of paying attention to what your body, a sensing radar, is communicating, or what you are communicating to it.
Money is an empowering emotion to that feeling, whatever the feeling might, in whichever moment, be, that might require empowering – such as:
“I’m getting the feeling in this moment that an awesome beach trip is necessary. It will cost €50 000, at least (but the outcome will be positive).”
or the other way
“If I don’t hurry up I’m going to be late, and that could cost me (the outcome will be negative).”
Regardless of what good and bad might in whichever case whenever be, money as an empowering emotion to a pre-defined feeling in time (as in: your body’s senses are ahead of your thoughts in time perceiving them as they come in: your senses are the feeling to the thoughts of emotion that your money-powered mind then attaches to them (which gives definition to the experience of time), always with some relevant formulation of a price, no matter how specific, or non-specific, that price definition may be) shows how decisions regarding the projected quality of future-time are made with a pricing mechanism, which ultimately reduces the nature of human decision-making to binary-in-the-moment – at least, it does if that skill level of thought is attained, since pricing calculations made in the moment are not easy (who said slowing time down was?), but pretty much everyday stuff in the life of a salesperson.
It is important to travel in time. It helps you build the skill of building context for yourself within, based on that which is, has been, and could be around.
Many people across the ages have discussed traveling in time on a conceptual level, but I myself am more of an actor running on conceptual thought instead of an observing eternal ponderer behind it, because I believe (and this is just me, which not everyone needs to try and be) it takes an act to achieve an understanding, giving acts value by way of achieving understanding, should valuable understanding be sought. This is important because without the value of an act, writers of all sorts of stories would have trouble earning a paycheck, which they need to live, because that’s just how the world works these days, and those writers might be closer than you think, and their well-being is likely to impact yours.
So little did I question my newfound understanding, after running on conceptual thought for a lifetime, that indeed it was time that I had been traveling in my whole life. Seeing time in action really just depends on what centralizing factor one pegs to the definition of a location in time. If you peg time to a physical location around the sun, you give space precedent in defining who is ahead and discuss where you exist relative to another. When it comes to this race, those just West of the International Date Line are always winning, because they always start the new day. But then again if the race is defined as who is last to leave the previous day, then I guess it is Hawaii that should always win – by being last, Hawaii is first in the race to be the last.
Pegging a location in time to an imagined line in space (Line Zero) is definitely useful in allowing two people to find each other (at the right time), and subsequently themselves, should they wish to go on a date. For this – so that we can find each other in space – we need the imagined line in space that divides time across days, because otherwise things get really messy in arranging a date (meet me under the clock at the famous store in seven-and-a-half risings of the sun, when the Wise Owl hoots).
But past being able to find each other, time can be pegged against different forms of itself to define when one is being relative to others. Because – when it comes to space – we are all being at the same time in relation of location of the Planet to the Sun, at least if we only consider the relation of the very center of the Sun to the very center of the Planet (which is of course not where we actually live).
But if we say that the front-runner in time is pegged to they who carry the latest human-built technology (pegging time to a relative concept on a plane of all available technologies, not to a relative place on a plane of all available places), then suddenly we are not all being at the same time.
“The future is here but it isn’t evenly distributed – yet” is a fantastic saying – very funny because it is so very true. It is quite a commonplace saying among the start-up population. If we peg a location in time to technological adoption, then you need only live in Finland or other places with a functional digital ecosystem to realize that your mind rides aboard a ship-of-a-land that streams further ahead on the technological plane than the ships-of-other-lands.
Technology can be thought of in many ways. We can consider the ways we work and the ways we administrate working together as a battle of old versus new testaments of technology (the set of all tools, a means to get something done – the functions to the human variables using them). If you wish to take a trip back in time on the technological plane, join your local political council meeting and you’ll get a ticket to a working world of at least a few decades back, at least if you do so in my political hometown of Kirkkonummi, Finland. Working with older people takes you back in time to a place where working habits were different. If you wish to take a trip forward in time, join a start-up run by inexperienced entrepreneurs. I don’t take any public opinion on which is better in this case – backwards or forwards. Time is always relative to the beholder.
Indeed, time is always relative to the beholder. For on the emotional plane of “the game”, how is a time had well in a situation when one person is jubilant but another is the opposite, without the concepts of miscommunication and silence in play, meaning that both persons would know the state of each other and be well in spite of one’s spoken positiveness and one’s negativeness? (Hint: invent the characters, lay down the goal of characters being well despite unbalanced information, write the story of how they got there, get the point, For extra credit: be qu‘awesome and invent what comes next in their story)
Many people associate time travel with the requirement of transformation for matter and mass. That you should not have traveled back in time should you not see horse carriages and shit in the streets. But then, was the experience of living in the 1800’s as a human being dependent on the technological advancement of infrastructural matters, or was it dependent – as it is today and will be tomorrow – on how we relate to the other human beings around us?
Is time defined by our being among ourselves now or among what those who came before us built? Do we listen to the present around us or the present of the past within us? Bo.. th… at the same time?!
Yes – obviously – without the horse carriages and shit in the streets the experience of being outside in the streets will not be the same, and it is certainly hard to imagine everything outside to be moving at the pace of a horse carriage, when things now move at the pace of many horses in one. But the buildings that were around then are often around now, as well, and they’ve remained mostly consistent of walls and roofs, so imagining them as they were and comparing being in them to as they are now is a much smaller feat for the imagination. “If only these walls could speak” as a saying requires only allowing yourself to speak to the walls to see what they should answer in return.
“I wonder what loving was like inside these walls a century ago?”
“How on Earth did they get along without a modern kitchen!?”
Should you indeed get a response from the walls, indicating that your imagination has – to some extent – been opened, then there is no doubt in my mind that time is what you are traveling in. For it is through time that we experience being and so it is through the being in time that we might move ourselves across and through it – by stopping yourself in the practical reality of the moment and starting yourself in the imagination of everything around it, to come back into a renewed moment full of new understanding, borne out of the stoppage.
Time is defined by whoever stands in it, and it is certainly fully in your power to stand in your own perception of time, inside the privacy of your own temple that is your body. But developing a skill of utilizing your imagination-in-time requires practice, just like the development of any other skill, but you might soon realize your improved capacity to sell your thoughts – have people shift over into your perception of opinions on varying matters – should you become able to build better stories, like the fine League of Salespersons that has for eons shaped the path our story takes.
“You know, friends, I was speaking to the walls of Töölö one day whilst taking a walk down the streets and they told me that the modern times just don’t do walls as well as they used to do walls a century ago.”
– The beginning of a jolly discussion about architecture and its value, perhaps over a beer or Aperol Spritz.
For some, the movement within one’s imagination might be more viscerally felt than by others, but no matter the amplitude of one’s wave of imagination (whatever the spectrum of the imagination being considered) in the moment and regardless of the magnitude of the emotions attached to the consideration (ditto), it is the same medium of time that is being traveled through by all. With the practice of traveling in time, the ability to build context around a situation improves greatly, and allows for all types of thought in all types of situations to be conducted better, since proper conduction always requires proper weaving in of the context around it, since better context is usually what is needed to convince a potential buyer to buy, and getting someone to buy something creates a receipt, which is the best proof of the potential value inherent to the skill of being able to travel in time.
And certain types of people, such as me and the us I attach myself to, just really need proof to be able to trust something. For an ad requires a receipt as proof of an ad’s value.
And that is ultimately what time is for – a tool we use to redefine each other’s perceptions of what it is and how well we are being in it, based on our experiences of being in it, primarily so that we can begin to trust each other, since how on Earth are we supposed to begin new things if we don’t have time?
One thing is certainly clear – there is a great deal of potential power attached to the ability to travel backwards and reinterpret the past, especially when attached to the ability to travel forwards and reinterpret the future. That said, potential only turns into actual power with the ability to operate reality in the present moment*, but that’s a whole other topic for another day.
*see what I just did there? I altered the future by writing in italics about a future topic that I now may or may not write about. Since I wrote that in public on my website, the audience’s trust in my capacity to deliver on promises is being tested and thus I choose my words carefully to entice my followers to keep on following, but not promising too much too directly should I not wish to write about operative matters; but I guess now that I’ve mentioned it I should probably write about it:
OK – I’ll be quick. Time starts with a base of equity – ultimately a whole bunch of reasons why something is being started. Then a lot of stuff happens, and a brand ends up in the marketplace. This can mean anything – an organization in the markets, a human being on the dating scene, a building as part of a cityscape – all waiting for reviews of value so that they may obtain value from outside, fueling the value that comes from within. Whatever the goal behind the equity may be, Aristoteles’ point in metaphysics was to say that first there is one thing and then there is another, and then time gets to work in explaining it all and money gets to work in putting some weight behind the words explaining it all. The Tools of Time & Money – A Substantial Set of Forces.
Paying attention to the operation that happens in between is pretty important in reality, so that is why we work to understand the components of how reality is actually built and, the better we get at it, the more power we ultimately have – power that is ultimately all about being able to define and redefine the nature of equities and brands present in today’s reality, which defines the context of life for everyone, yourself included.
I repeat: that is ultimately what time is for – a tool we use to redefine each other’s perceptions of what it is and how well we are being in it, based on our experiences of being in it. Who is better with time, is better with it, and that rating ultimately comes from the masses, since that is what all value grows out of since they (the masses) are also known as the markets.
Definitive power is pretty substantial but – so that those just sitting around defining things don’t get too much of a grip on how things are – being able to define comes down to being able to operate. So then being able to operate comes down to being able to define (a goal), which could be a goal aimed at maintaining or renovating a present state, which will at various dimensions always impact others who will often have a say (by way of laws) in impacting your ability to operate because they are naturally invested in the present state, so ultimately things just seem to happen in time (at lot of stuff at substantial scale) and we all do our best to keep up with the pros and cons it brings, simultaneously testing the strength of our will power (the force against uncertainty) to push onward towards a goal (or keep others from reaching theirs), should we indeed still feel it worthwhile in reaching after facing the inevitable cons that come up on our path, whatever the outcome is that we are working towards – should we even have any idea about what that is or may be, and how it will all play out.
Time – you can just keep on going and going and going and going and going and then you have a story once you reach it (the goal, wh’ever that might mean).
ps. for physicists still working on catching themselves, think about time as a specific place (the being of which is empowered by your choice) that you are resident in as observer-actor, sucking up the download of thoughts and emotions from across time needed so that you might upload an act into time whilst being in it so that you might see that indeed, an act happened, but whatever value that act has is dependent upon your assessment of it, which is dependent on your understanding of the goal you were striving towards, which is dependent on your understanding of your self, which is dependent on your catching yourself in the first place, which is why you might wish to choose to realize how things just keep going and going and going and going and going… until you’re there, wherever or whenever or whatever that may be.
pps. if you try to get too technical with time, you’ll hurt your head. Have fun with the artsy-side of it first, to make sure you’ve got a fair load of humour about it at hand as primary mental defence.
