This is an article I reprinted because I found that it comes at the right juncture: where people are asked to decide if they are going to be the cause of their own evolution, or if they are going to assume the worry for themselves… Worry means no action. It’s a pretense. It is the only recourse of the cowardly, impotent, and ineffective.
The 150 Things the World’s Smartest People Are Afraid of
Every year, the online magazine Edge–the so-called smartest website in the world, helmed by science impresario John Brockman–asks top scientists, technologists, writers, and academics to weigh in on a single question. This year, that query was “What Should We Be Worried About?”, and the idea was to identify new problems arising in science, tech, and culture that haven’t yet been widely recognized.
This year’s respondents include former presidents of the Royal Society, Nobel prize-winners, famous sci-fi authors, Nassem Nicholas Taleb, Brian Eno, and a bunch of top theoretical physicists, psychologists, and biologists. And the list is long. Like, book-length long. There are some 150 different things that worry 151 of the planet’s biggest brains. And I read about them all, so you don’t have to: here’s the Buzzfeedized version, with the money quote, title, or summary of the fear pulled out of each essay. Obviously, go read the rest if any of the below get you fretting too. Continue reading “the planet’s smartest people have a narrow cone of vision”
I wrote this article a year and a half ago. I never published it, but I will, now. Why? Because I have a lot more insight about meditation I can share, and because I offered a famous marketer to teach him meditation, and he hasn’t even bothered to answer my email.

What is meditation and what is the role of meditation?
Quoting from Wikipedia: Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or as an end in itself
I will examine this question as a non-meditator who has tried to meditate and failed.
I am not against meditation. Meditation as a tool, to allow all knowledge to reach you, past the noise of all there is, distinguished as knowledge beyond your own, is invaluable.
I have been quasi meditating the past day or so… the questions I am meditating over are
This is a very old article. I just read it because a student of mine keeps coming back to it. The syntax of communication, always asking for something, renders you a beggar.
What do you think happens to your relationships where you are the taker all the time? It won’t be a relationship… and if anything, it will be a slavery where you are the slave driver. Arrogant, don’t you think?
So, please read this post as outdated. Thank you.
The Syntax of Communicating With Source
Before I can teach you the syntax of communication with Source, we need to look if Source is a sentient being.
Sentience simply means self-aware, conscious.
So far, in all my thinking, if Source is sentient, then it has a very simple circuit, nothing like all the religions would suggest.
At this point of the investigation there are a few things that look like facts:
