This is an interesting video on “Basic Income, and other ways to fix capitalism“. (A TEDx Talk).
Now, there is a lot of “mainstream” focus on problems and anxiety-creating situations nowadays. They are also plenty of people working to make the world better, but you can and must choose to focus on some of them as well. Repairing the mainstream damage is a self-discipline which all true human beings must employ. It is hard, but it is worthwhile, and makes life easier by focusing on what you can do.

Each of these articles give a different perspective on things. I am sharing them because, although I didn’t write any of them, and am not endorsing them, they are each food for thought, and so you might find them more interesting. Also, later on, I might write about some of the issues brought up, but by then, hopefully from a perspective of more positive experience in addressing some of them.
- Universities, and the proposal for dual tracks. It focuses on universities, but neglects that, in wider society, there is an unmet demand for both vocational schools and vocational opportunities.
- Teaching Physics to the masses, a little bit deeper than NOVA.
- Stuff about Trump University. Links to a lot more stuff about it. What I take as a positive and possible warning, is that a bad product can sell if it is well promoted, and by contrast, good products can fail, and opportunities can be lost, if not explicit promotion of their greatness is done. This seems to be happening, in general, with further education (under-promotion of the better opportunities).
- An in-depth analysis about some scary things, like the statistical danger of surgery on the wrong organ or side of the body. It is scary that the flavor of a soft drink is now very precisely controlled, but not life-altering surgery. There should be funding to fix this!

Words can have different meanings, and this can cause a lot of problems. “Harmony” is one of the words which, I think, is often misunderstood.
One definition is close to self/ego-nullification, the other, is closer to internal balance, but it has major social benefits. In fact, it makes social interactions reliably brilliant.

“The information economy is about selling
everything except information.”
Furthermore, services and manufacturing are mutually dependent.
“Burning each other to ashes is not a “twin flame” XD
In my humble opinion, for each individual, real flames come from holistic fulfillment.”
– paraphrase what I recently tweeted (tw’d?).
Note: We have no affiliation with that spiritual poetess lady, just linking what I took as an input to generate my response. Call it academic legacy, citing and referencing everything for your edification/future research possibilities.
The passion that comes from compatibility of some aspects of two living human beings can blossom into romance, and move from general love into personal love, and create an ongoing cycle of positive synergy.
However, that synergy can turn negative, and become focused on pain compensation rather than pain expulsion, for many reasons which are mostly incidental.
What do I mean by all of those big words?

Complexity is not complicated, if you are a capable of accurately modeling the complex systems accurately, as a system, and updating the model to match the system, and knowing the difference between the model and the system.
However, for most people, complexity is pain, and simple models give the options to express both the pursuit of pleasure, and the accumulated pain which drives a negative identity (as opposed to the accumulated successes, profits, which drive a healthy, positive self esteem).
This negative identity becomes the primary identity, and controls the anti-loving actions of the individual, based on fear, insecurity, and a justified doubt in their own ability to live within love.

Today is really hot.
In fact, the last few months have been rather warm, and I dislike that.
