To compensate for today’s Spin Doctor pieces on the lousy culture the economists and politicians have created for us with their bean-baggery idealisms and their almost religious-in-nature approach to life, their dogma-driven, beat-around-the-bush derivative world, here’s the flip-side: a peek into a world guided by the will to be productive from scratch, and the drive to learn new things with the aim to understand the world a little better rather than try and fit it inside a prefabricated box with the aim to gain money and power.
Not that science is totally pure, pristine, and free from cynicism, not in this day and age, or ever, for that matter — it’s always had its politics and vested interests, its petty squabbles and small-minded ends — but, by and large, science is, without a doubt, more firmly rooted in principles conducive to creating things of value,
and this clip reveals the value-creation aspect of science, setting the tone for the years ahead.
‘People learn what condition they have and they compensate for it.’
Spoken like a true scientist — like a man of knowledge, progress, and productiveness.
Funny how the field of science leads the fields of economics and finance in value production; how it leads the fields of politics and governance in ethos and culture.
The world is definitely going through a phase, all topsy-turvy and spinning furiously, no one really sure how it’s going to land.
There’s a name for this condition.
It’s called Revolution.
Time to recognize it and compensate for it, or, to be more exact, adapt to it until it runs its course.
From the bays of Pearl Coast,
Fish a ton of oysters, strike a shiny pearl.
