Gateway and Hemi-Sync

Now that we have briefly profiled the basic mechanics of the principal techniques for altering or expanding consciousness which share some of the objectives and/or methods employed in the Gateway Experience, we may proceed to focus on what that technique actually involves.

Fundamentally, the Gateway Experience is a training system designed to bring enhanced strength, focus and coherence to the amplitude and frequency of brainwave output between the left and right hemispheres so as to alter consciousness, moving it outside the physical sphere so as to ultimately escape even the restrictions of time and space.… Read more...

El Pequeño Buda

Podrías ver a cualquier niño como un Buda pequeñito, o un maestro Zen que ha caído en paracaídas en tu vida, cuyas acciones y presencia van a tocar todos y cada uno de tus botones, y a retar cada creencia y apego que tienes.

Cada niño vive en un jardín en donde todo se percibe y siente directamente, sin el velo de del pensamiento.… Read more...

La esencia del guerrero siempre está oculta y guardada por algo como una puerta. Bien escondida, es como un monasterio en las montañas. Muchos saben de su existencia, pero muy pocos llegan ahí, y menos aún entran.

El Viejo más Rico del Mundo

El tiempo es la clave: cuando te mueres o enfermas no te llevas el dinero contigo: el dinero sólo lo tienes durante un periodo limitado de tiempo.

El tiempo es el recurso escaso. Los que más tiempo tienen siempre son los jóvenes. Un jóven tiene más riqueza que el viejo más rico del mundo, y esto no es poesía, es realidad.… Read more...

Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? -TS Eliot  (The Rock)

This wonderful quote from TS Eliot echoes the DIKW model of Data, Information, Knowledge and Wisdom. The model is pure academicism and therefore useless from the practical point of view, but...

Organismos vs Mecanismos

La vida no es un mecanismo, sino un organismo. La vida no es mecánica, es orgánica. Y lo mismo ocurre con todos los sistemas complejos cotidianos: la economía, las ideas, la meteorología, etc.

En la Naturaleza los organismos no ‘aparecen’ sino que ‘surgen’ y crecen desde dentro.… Read more...

Platforms are not About Technology

Are you an entrepreneur? If you don’t have your own platform on the Internet, you tend to become a commodity. In the future, the most successful businesses will be platforms.

The value of a platform is neither in the technology or in the user growth rate. The value is in the community on top of it.… Read more...

SQL vs Blockchain Databases

The problem of structuring data for unknown future uses was solved in the 70s and it’s called relational algebra.

It stores data in a way that is right, that prevents many types of errors based on the actual data and relationships between the real world objects the data describes.

It’s a way of storing data that works no matter how toy want to query it in the future.… Read more...

From “Product Marketing” to “You Marketing”

Most marketing boards insist on ‘problem-solving’ as the main approach to gain customers.

But solving immediate needs is only an intermediate step. It is important to go further.

What we all seek (even unconsciously) are deeper motivations and concepts.

Lets review some marketing strategies:

– Mediocre marketing focuses on the product or the seller.… Read more...

Are Programmers going to be Replaced?

Programming is like dancing: everyone can do it, but very few do it so well that they get money in return.

However, writing the code is only part of solving the problem. In fact, it’s not the most important, because different languages can solve the same problem. The key is knowing how to pose the problem: build the model that reproduces and automates something real.… Read more...

This duality can be pursued further and is related to a duality between past and future and the notions of control and knowledge. Thus we may have knowledge of the past but cannot control it; we may control the future but have no knowledge of it...

The Knowledge vs Control Dichotomy According to Shannon

Shannon's Information Theory is one of those few books with mathematical, technological and philosophical implications. A true genius that has been little studied.

The Hacking Philosophy

The hacking idea is intrinsic to any complex system. You discover the mechanics that make it to work, and then you can see it from the inside and manipulate it at your convenience. It’s not just about coding and programming. It is a universal concept.

People tend to use insecure systems, or secure systems they don’t know how to use.… Read more...

AI Hype

Experts and media claim that we are about to create Artificial Intelligence (AI) that will allow machines to start thinking like people, and take care of everything. Thats complete nonsense, and its part of a greater scam that includes the climate change oax.

First of all, current AI models and research assume that you can recreate consciousness using equations and logical procedures.… Read more...

No Thinking Machines

Current AI models and research assume that you can recreate consciousness using equations and logical procedures. But they are basically systems of equations and feedback. They work well when they are trained, but only under very strict boundary conditions.

So-called Artificial General Intelligence (the one supposed to imitate a human brain) is probably decades away, if it ever happens.… Read more...

Persuadir a gente que no conoces no debería empezar por hablar de ti NUNCA. Y tampoco por hacer una oferta genérica. Haz ofertas concretas para beneficios específicos.

– Déjame hablarte de (este producto), para que puedas (hacer esto) -> MAL
– Si tienes (este problema), te puedo ayudar (de esta forma) con (este producto) -> BIEN

Economía Descentralizada

Economía descentralizada. Hoy en día los medios consideran Uber y Airbnb como economía colaborativa, pero no son modelos p2p. Son economías extractivas creadas por grandes empresas que actúan como intermediarios centrales que tienen control total sobre nuestros activos. Por ello, estas empresas toman unas comisiones importantes de lo que se mueve dentro.… Read more...

Dinero Electrónico: Los Problemas y las Ventajas

Dinero electrónico. Eliminar el dinero es conveniente, pero hará todos tus movimientos traceables para el gobierno (y para cualquier hacker). Pero esto de hecho ya es así y hay muy poco que puedas hacer al respecto, por tanto protestar es ir contra la conveniencia.

Eliminar el dinero generaría un mercado negro: si eliminas el metálico la gente encontrará formas de reemplazarlo.… Read more...

CBDCs are for the Banks, not for the People

The world has too much debt, which cannot be repaid (actually by design). But growth is too slow to allow governments to cope by inflating away debt service costs.

So they try and trick the people by offering a quick, bank free way of taking on more debt. These are the CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currencies).… Read more...
