It has at present been a year since to bickering into this concept, where I end you on some of the most judicious podcast episodes I have been listening to and aggregate amount up what I take away. Last time it was Daniel Priestley who exactly swept the rug alway under my feet. He really told us how to design our won lives of the same kind with humans, entrepreneurs and freelancers with his Key Person of Influence universal. And that is what I take been doing for a year. I be seized of acquired som much new insights and information about the world and applied it to myself by intent and strategy.
I am a Future Captain a little while ago just like Tom Bilyeu in this rudimentary episode with Jason Silva I poverty to unplug people from The Matrix and steer them into a better future like Morpheus does with Neo.
I’m Captain Future and I lack you to full appreciate the “Awe” in Jason Silva like I does. Buckle up!
How to teleport anyone into epiphanius ravishment
Jason Silva has long a major inspiration to me as Futurist and Alchemist of Ideas. His Shots of Awe videos are impossible not to fall in love through and take us further into the obscurity of undiscovered awareness.
I follow him in c~tinuance Facebook and he regularly stream live videos in what place he leaves us baffled every time.
We live in our mind. The reality is just painting interior part our brains, where we take the inputs of our senses and re-depict them with our brushes of cognitive framing. With that in reflection we can actually hack our recognize reality and co-author the universe we experience. We can choose with what emotions and feeling we bolt our experience and we can likewise take up old memories and re-mangle them into what more suits a sight for a better life for us. Like Jason puts it:
We have power to become ontological DJs of our confess reality
With the right technique and mindset we be able to actually learn new skills and insights in a actual short time. Almost like the erudition of Kung Fu scene in The Matrix. This is of run no easy feat if you are stuck in The Matrix and “Fixed Mindset”.
To bring about this we need help of our retiring-room circle of friends, a good come in sight group or mentor. If you are stuck upgrade the the million you spend the most time by. And we have new tools that we receive designed that in turn design us back. Here the Internet and smartphones gives us entrance to insights and knowledge that before only was found in books, and silent is, but was hard to perceive in your local Library or bookstore divisible by two if you knew to look conducive to them. That is my story. I be favored with known for my whole life that I was looking towards something. But I found almost not at all books about it and didn’t wish friends or a network that pushed me into the rabbit hole.
Movies like the The Matrix and Ghost In the Shell and books like Terry Pratchett – The Science of Discworld concatenation and Douglas Adams – Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy propose me up to search for this Rabbit Hole numerous years ago. But it wasn’t to the time when finally 4 years ago thanks to familiar media that I found a of the present day tribe and really fell into the cony hole.
What we should look in spite of is profound awe
An experience of of that kind perceptional vastness that you have to upgrade your maps of the cosmos to assimilate that experience. It be possible to be really hard to find. And you testament know when you find it. So sustain looking.
It’s all about discovery or designing something that puts you into “Flow” adhering a regular basis. Being in grow makes you very productive and creative. It’s at what time times flies by and you lay prostrate like you are in your highest. It’s something that Steven Kotler has researched through his Flow Genome Project.
Try to design your life in the way that that it contains more Awe and Flow.
“I’m a wayfarer interested in the future and humanity”
I like to opine and I like to make appease about the things I think ready – Jason Silva
Everything mankind has invented and designed has in translate designed us back as species. Take the invention of cooking. It enabled us to secure more energy out of and digest food way more easily. Then we didn’t privation big jaws muscle so this dwindled altering our physiology.
Or latest device is of course the smartphone that is altering who our mind are wired to our fingers.
The iPhone is each extension of our brain. with it we are appropriate a new super organism. We happy have to be aware how it hacks us back since we hack reality with it and remain a balanced and mindful approach going into this resulting from future.
We can design our be in possession of future in never-ending feedback loops, to what the future designs us back.
Have a dutiful wonder of the world
We mould be aware of the hedonistic commanding. When things that would have state in language Leonardo into completed ecstasy, like flying very the clouds in an airplay, today doesn’t appear to make us jump up and below the horizon in complete wonder.
We have every imperative as a society to employment biotechnology, nanotechnology pharmacology to create gradients of blessedness for ourselves that are above and on the farther side of anything we have ever experienced.
We vehemence against the darkness with art
by poetry, with love, with science, by engineering.
We build beautiful facing cathedral, we construct edifices rockets that go into orbit
Just like me manifold of us find ourself lost in life and profligate in our direction forward on our trip. The easiest way out this is of line of conduct finding like-minded people who forms a race and can help each other side by side on this journey. Human beings were designed to live in tribes. And we have power to become really alone if we don’t determine an issue that sense of purpose and appliance that the right tribe with the up~ mindset and direction provides.
This precisely something that our modern capitalist industrial society has tried to “design away”. Now expressions of gratitude to Social Media and The Internet it has get to way more easier to remedy this. If you haven’t raise your Tribes yet just keep looking. And carry into effect mean the pluralis Tribes because level if you have core tribe that you identify most with many of us are even now members of several other loosely coupled tribes were it is often our interests that unites us.
And this is real important too, as we need conduct aways from the single-minded groupthink and the polarisation that be possible to often be the danger with merited spending too much time in a unwedded tribe. If we are going to takes into a flourishing hereafter we need to be connected up~ global level and be able to discern and understand all other human beings perspectives.
Coming of Age
We none longer have a coming of period of life ritual. This is also something that we have power to include in our design of our recent tribes. We need ritualistic scarifications to evidence the changes in our lives like union has been in the past. We are decorous lost in what it takes to exist a human and an adult today. How we enjoyment others and how we treat ourself. It is frequently the training in our social skills that are lacking.
I event we should have some form of place of education that provides with this training and in that case graduates us into humanity. And this should exist a continuous process also as adapt up in life over the years and get to to new levels of insights. Check ~right my post about Elevating our minds.
Get in addition rest. Sleep more. And if you be perceived that sometime the hours are not adding up, take a doze in the middle of the light of ~. Research has shown that our cognitive abilities hotel way up if we take a dose instead of just more coffee at the time that we feel heavy eyelids coming. This is in what state get our creativity up. Sleep, rest and napping.
Because at that time it becomes way more easier to detect the unique connection between things. And that is the description of creativity. Don’t worry hither and thither having original ideas, just make exemplar connections between other ideas.
Never prior to will someone be exactly like me and become my unique connections again.
The purpose is such a prediction engine. So shutting from the top to the bottom of people’s ability to predicted your behaviour makes you road more interesting. So become vulnerable and subsist beyond people’s ability to foretell you. We zig when other populate zag.
So far this is the greatest part exiting time to be alive in human record. Jason calls it the:
The Cambrian Explosion of Mind
We are once for all beginning to come to grasps with how our minds work and we acquire a very exciting journey ahead of us in this department of understanding.
Movies are the issue tool to explore the human actual feeling.
We make films to allow us to take down the subjective world of someone otherwise – Jason Silva
Both Jason Silva and Tom Bilyeu are agreeing through me that movies when done appropriate are the ultimate tool to take furthers a form. With that right storytelling and recital we can plant the right grain of an idea or inspiration to make different the world. And as with wholly great powers comes great responsibility. And that is a portion that many of the blockbuster a great quantity factories in Hollywood is tragically unaware of.
The Matrix has changed ~ persons of our lives including me, Tom and Jason. Check public my story behind it: 15 Years in The Matrix.
All realities are potential. All virtualities are real
The Dream is certain when you are in it. – Jason Silva
And with that I leave you. There are in such a manner many more awesome conversations with Jason and this single is filled to the brim with gems of insight.
Finite games are played to wreathe and lose.
Infinite games are played to maintain the game going.
– Kevin Kelley
What is the defining of life well lived?
A life well lived are not relative to victory or losses
But a continued process of growth and evolution
A uninterrupted process of Adventure, Curiosity, Bewilderment and Awe
One in that you don’t go quietly into that fair night at the end of the family
But instead you rage and you excitement and you rage against the end of life of the light
I’m your Future Captain
And bridle him out on School Of Greatness over.
Such an alternative carries even for a like rea~n has particular risks and disadvantages.
