@lyrx1 Understood. I’ve seen your other comments in the Catastrophic Collapse thread, too. Thank you. I’m going to address the core essence of your comments below. . . .
Simple Questions Are the Gateway to Deep Insight & Inspiration. Respectfully, it’s important to not incorrectly assume that any of our questions imply ignorance or naivete. Intentionally simple questions often reveal powerful insights about life, political/economic systems, human nature, technical system design, etc. I have a lot of experience in my career dealing with dysfunctional governments, Wall Street (and economics in general), building companies, developing complex technical systems, fighting corporate corruption . . . so I’m painfully aware of the limitations of human nature and technology to govern fallible human nature.
Simple Questions Are Like Glaciers: What You See Is Only a Fraction of What Lives Below. When I present these simple questions to our community, the purpose is to create the mental/emotional freedom for people to explore interesting and important ideas that are directly relevant to Cardano’s future. The best way to do that is to help everybody feel safe by asking simple questions that do not require a PhD for participation in the discussion. All products/services/sociological revolutions are born from ideas. All ideas must be mined just like Bitcoin from a huge mountain of knowledge and life experiences. To get to the precious gems, we must all dig through a lot of mundane and seemingly naive questions. But these questions are like glaciers: What you see on the surface is only a fraction of what lives below.
We Don’t Need to Be Reminded About “Reality.” I understand and appreciate all your comments–I really do, but what’s the purpose? If it’s to “bring these people down to reality because they don’t understand the real world,” well, I can assure you I’ve seen the worst elements that humanity has to offer us; and most of us here are already thinking and living within the deepest realities of human existence. But this community is about visualizing the future in Cardano Land. That requres creative exploration, which is fun and essential to shaping Cardano’s future and the future of humanity.
Let Us Create Our Own Reality Until the Rest of the World Catches Up to Us. Let’s enjoy the exploration, free-association, and inspiration of what Cardano represents for humanity. You never know which simple question and which simple idea will be the gem that takes us all to the next level of human civilization.
