The Mindful Revolution

Mankind seems to have reached a cross­roads. At envi­ron­men­tal, polit­i­cal, and eco­nom­i­cal lev­els more and more urgent haz­ard warn­ings appear. Man has to cope with this high-speed change, and there are many well-intended activ­i­ties already under way. How­ev­er, what we need to sur­vive exceeds fast-track res­cue plans and well-meant com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment. We have to bethink our­selves of our inher­ent abil­i­ties and lever­age our entire skill set — we need a Mind­ful Rev­o­lu­tion.

Everything Happens For A Reason

There are many ways of inter­pret­ing the things that hap­pen in our lives. For me, there is no such thing as chance, but every­thing hap­pens for a spe­cif­ic rea­son. Good and bad things alike, have helped me to under­stand my envi­ron­ment bet­ter and to improve the qual­i­ty of my life. It’s not that I’d be look­ing for bad things to hap­pen or that I I’d be explic­it­ly happy when they occur but I have

Solving World Problems

It is said that a brain‘s size pos­i­tive­ly cor­re­lates with its host‘s level of intel­li­gence. The abil­i­ty of human beings to use tools in very elab­o­rate ways, to cre­ate art or to invent and tell sto­ries to each oth­ers, seems to prove a cer­tain suprema­cy over other crea­tures. As long as we won‘t have dis­cov­ered super­nat­ur­al life, humans regard them­selves as being the pride of cre­ation. Ok, then — all is fine!

Not the slope must change — you must!

Hav­ing enjoyed a few days of ski­ing in Italy, I was remind­ed of a pearl of wis­dom by a ski instruc­tor of my kids. After a down­hill run, when dis­cussing what to improve ski­ing, the instruc­tor told my son: “Not the slope must change — it can’t — you must!” This sim­ple state­ment by a ver­i­ta­ble expert in this field (as opposed to my son’s father) had deeply impressed my son. Each time we go ski­ing

The Beauty Of Snow

Dur­ing win­ter, it some­times snows in Ger­many, even in cli­mate change-raddled 21st cen­tu­ry. In the first weeks of Jan­u­ary 2019, we are expe­ri­enc­ing heavy snow­falls — a weath­er con­di­tion that results in a vari­ety of effects, from the impos­si­bil­i­ty to bike to work, over flight can­cel­la­tions or acci­dents. to snow­ball fights and deep pow­der ski­ing. Weath­er is a phe­nom­e­non beyond the reach of human beings. It is broad­ly pre­dictable but unforsee­able in its

Bridging The Gap

Yes­ter­day over lunch, we dis­cussed the lib­er­tar­i­an notion of essen­tial­ly get­ting rid of lega­cy com­plex­i­ty, such as leg­is­la­tion, reg­u­la­tion, etc. Some of the early pro­po­nents and cre­ators of cryp­to cur­ren­cies have expressed lib­er­tar­i­an world views by try­ing to leave the mon­e­tary sys­tem of cen­tral banks and hand over the power of money cre­ation to the peo­ple.

Beyond Logic

At school, I was never good in maths. At the uni­ver­si­ty, I was inter­est­ed in sta­tis­tics, but only mar­gin­al­ly. Hon­est­ly, I start­ed tu learn about the beau­ty of maths many years later, when work­ing with more intel­li­gent peo­ple than me who under­stand com­put­ers and data, in gen­er­al. After I start­ed work­ing on Blockchain and other dis­trib­uted ledger tech­nolo­gies in 2014, I began to realise that some aspects of maths, such as game the­o­ry or cat­e­go­ry the­o­ry,

Change Agents

A change agent is a per­son from inside or out­side the organ­i­sa­tion who helps an organ­i­sa­tion trans­form itself by focus­ing on such mat­ters as organ­i­sa­tion­al effec­tive­ness, improve­ment, and devel­op­ment. This is, what the dic­tio­nary says. For me, change agents are every­where, and always behind the next cor­ner. My behav­iour could be defined as my actions based on sev­er­al given dif­fer­ent pre­con­di­tions, such as my envi­ron­ment, my state of mind and health,

Predecentralism

At the begin­ning of 2019, none of the new the­o­ries and labels for the era after post­mod­ernism, which itself seems to have come to an end, have so far gained wide­spread accep­tance. Post-postmodernism, trans-postmodernism, post-millennialism, pseudo-modernism. digi­mod­ernism or meta­mod­ernism are some of the attempts to find an appro­pri­ate label for the times we are liv­ing in. My sug­ges­tion is: Pre­de­cen­tral­ism. With pre­de­cen­tral­ism I mean an era before most of our think­ing,

The Meaning Of Life

Speak­ing in your moth­er tongue doesn‘t stress you at all, while hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion in anoth­er lan­guage might result in hard men­tal work. Even if you are flu­ent, let‘s say, in french, it most prob­a­bly requires a sig­nif­i­cant effort to pro­duce the melo­di­ous tim­bre of a Parisian. Where­as we have inter­nal­ized and syn­chro­nized our native lan­guages with our thoughts, we have to sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly trans­late our think­ing into for­eign words. This seems a good anal­o­gy
