From iBeacons to Yo

Have We Been Using Technology Wrong?

An excellent question from   Director of the Tomorrow Group & Marketing Writer and Speaker.

I also contemplate the “dominance of the frivolous, a culture of trivia/frivolity” as I sit in non-moving traffic on superhighways, dreaming of riding the open road with a Harley Davidson…….The understanding component of education, determining the direction and uses to which our creation shall be put, is largely missing due to an extremely shallow grasp of Energy, and its equation E=MC2. Opening the energy door, self understanding pours in. One of the better historical analogies of describing this type of group behavioral stage of development is represented in the story of the tablets thrown down the mountain. Energy fundamentals vital to sustainable evolution

From iBeacons to Yo: Have we been using technology wrong?

Repost from Linkedin   New technology is changing everything, abundance and excitement is everywhere and these are boom times, but what if all the sky high valuations, the confidence and the positivity were based on the fundamental misapplication of technology?

We are living in amazing times. It feels like technology is sweeping through every aspect of our lives, and for the better. Our daily newsfeed is awash with realities we never dreamt possible; technology is a relentless, optimistic and transformative force, creating paradigm shifts in our expectations.

It seems so overwhelmingly positive that we never question ourselves and think: What if we were using it wrong?

Plugged into the technology press, the daily list of new apps, startups that get funding and pioneering products, it has come to mind that pretty much everything new is no longer solving a problem or quenching a human need, but being driven only by excitement about what can be done.

I like to imagine a spectrum, from possibilities to solutions and visualize where most of our efforts are focused.

Exploring possibilities is great

Don’t get me wrong, not everything transformative is a solution. Amazing things have come from creating wondrous things that we never craved & never needed. The tablet doesn’t really solve a problem; neither did any person think the horse drawn carriage was inept; Instagram didn’t finally quench our wildest dreams to see each other’s dinners.

When we don’t know what is possible, we need dreamers; we need invention. We need leaps in humanity driven by wild dreams and the serendipitous discoveries in the factory. But perhaps this should be secondary.

What strikes me is in these optimistic and well funded times, is that we’re seeing an abundance of energy spent on what’s possible, not what is needed, or what problems need to be solved.

  • Is the existence of “yo”and an app merely to send the word “yo”to each other really helping humanity?
  • Are the people working away on iBeacons in the grocery store really expecting that the result will satisfy a need for more stimuli in the shopping aisle?
  • Has augmented reality made any improvements to anyone’s life?
  • When using my mouth to order a coffee, do I look to my phone for a better way?

Yet the gaze of the technology press, the VC money and the hedge funds is fixated on these trivialities.

Let’s solve problems

It’s not like we suffer for a lack of problems in the world; where are the sky high valuations for the companies that help people recycle? Those that make kids eat more healthily? Those that make it easier to cycle to work? The ones that reduce the effect of corruption or help cure diseases? We have really profound problems in the world that need addressing, but instead we’ve made the quantified fork or the cup that tells you what you put in it

Even if we come down from those lofty goals and focus on the day to day, are there not things that cause daily pain that we can’t solve? Is solving problems too boring for press?

  • Our media owners are losing money, resorting to cheap viral content to make money from ads, and we suffer massively for it. Please, can someone find a way to help decent writers get paid?
  • We waste hours each month waiting for parcels or engineers at home; if my phone can track a taxi, can’t it track a truck and give me a delivery time?
  • Passwords for websites still don’t really work. They are not safe, they are rarely saved, you forget them, and resetting is a pain.
  • If my doctor is running late, could I be told before I leave work?
  • Phone calls are increasingly a bad way to do things, how about a better way to communicate richly in real time, but where contextual information is shared before committing to speak?
  • I have to turn my wi-fi on an off about 5 times a day, when stationary I have to sign back in 5 times per hour.
  • And don’t get me started on the amount of time in our lives we are stressed and looking for power outlets.

I made this matrix to help understand where the funding is, where the excitement is and where it should be.

The horizontal access is from solving problems to what is possible. It’s clear, although it’s hard because problems tend to be personal; to some, finding a way to get laundry picked up easily is a problem, and for others it’s finding clean drinking water. But it works.

The vertical axis is harder, as it’s a blend of the level of effort required, but also the impact of the change. I’d like to hear comments on a better way to sort this axis. The idea was a way to allow the highly exciting, transformative, high effort projects that led to the creation of the car, that didn’t really solve a problem to stick out. It’s created 4 sectors:

Inspirational – High effort, high impact projects that are not essential, but highly beneficial.

Transformative – High effort, high impact projects that solve huge problems we face.

Frivolous – Low impact, easily done tasks that don’t reflect a need.

Ingenious – Almost the definition of a hack: a simple, low energy, high impact project that solves a problem.

You would imagine the best projects would be the transformative or the ingenious, and you’d expect funding, given its need, to focus on quick results to concentrate in the bottom right and move to the top left. But reading the tech press every day, I can’t help but see a dominance of the frivolous.

Conclusion.

I think what we see in Silicon Valley is a group of young, spoiled, awkward tech guys, unable to see that the problems to solve are not finding a way to talk to girls, or reinventing laundry. We have now somehow created a culture of frivolity. It’s everywhere; in commerce it’s KLM allowing me book a flight by twitter, in advertising it’s one off vending machines that reward smiles with cans of drink, in technology it’s curved screen TV’s, in design it’s Austrians reinventing doors.

I’d love to see people in industries plotting what is new on this chart, or making a better version and using it to prioritize.

Perhaps in a culture of applying technology to problems, we can do a lot more.

Caution – massively slow moving obstacle ahead (Corporate America)

Comment posted on LinkedIn’s following article:   Caution – massively slow moving obstacle ahead (Corporate America) – not unlike the traffic nightmare.  Where is the H2 on demand from the 1950s? The basic 4000 year old Chinese rocket concept remains unchanged. Are we truly being Creative? Or nearsighted, short term directed, molding, imprisoning the future, led by the nose where the dollar of innovation goes.  Economics and evolving Life seem to be diametrically opposed in this massive worldwide economic divide. The little box of skewed reality is sinking. A larger concept of E=MC2 is re-emerging with unimaginable profit potential as the “economic divide” is dismantled and practically free, unlimited energy made available, eliminating resource scarcity.  http://exploringenergyevolution.blogspot.com/2014/05/adaptable-to-field-propulsion-or-are-we.html

Feedback and assistance are welcome towards making the ‘long past due’ present and available now – As others have noted, this will be Open Source on a Manhattan Project scale.    

The EPA’s Carbon Plan Won’t Hurt Corporate America

  It all sounds wonky and focused only on the power sector, but these new rules could bring deep change for all businesses and all citizens. Those fighting progress are of course crying foul and shouting about economic devastation from burdensome regulations – the U.S. Chamber of Commerce put out an absurd “analysis” of the regulations before they were released. There will obviously be a cost for utilities to comply, but industry generally overestimates – often by an order of magnitude – the expense to meet tougher standards…… more

Fwd: Leadership Today – The Horse Is NOT Here To Stay

Forward comment to LinkedIn post: “Leadership Today – The Horse Is NOT Here To Stay
.
Exceptional leadership training advice is presented:VUCA leaders are trained to anticipate future issues, are aware of consequences of possible actions, understand how multiple variables interact, develop alternative plans, are well prepared for crisis management, and are clear about how to detect and quickly seize new opportunities. VUCA leaders have figured out that the horse is a horse. Not a car. And not a plane.  The DyBoPe Leader VUCA with its more practical code for awareness and readiness assists leaders in spotting the coming wave and helps bypassing or avoiding it. However, to ride the wave, i.e. to be disruptive, to be  innovative, and to actively define the rules of the game it takes leaders who are extremely agile, courageous, and who love building top performing teams.
 
I have to wonder if those trained with the VUCA attributes can be contained within our current tiny reality boundary box and continue to perpetuate the unsustainable.  (see ‘current cause and effect’)?  
 
Your proposed training – to ride the wave, i.e. to be disruptive, to be innovative – cannot avoid opening additional degrees of freedom in scientific reality awareness. For, most assuredly, advanced mental awareness stimulation, with trained physical nerve stretching flexibility and agility cannot help but connect the dots to a larger, more dominate, cause and effect reality scenario as depicted in the ‘missing dots’ pic with massive corrective action mobilized. This could take ‘disruption’ to unprecedented novel and innovative levels.
 
Central to this evolutionary awareness and expression theme, and glaringly standing out on the forefront of expanded awareness would be the obvious critical “evolutionary survival” components missing in our contemporary view of energy and physic’s standard model….. specifically why the simple equation E=MC2 has remained stagnant since its discovery over a 100 years ago.

Summation of Fundamental Principle VC:
·        The simple unity of matter and energy: Consider a geometric plane surface having two dimensions. If this plane is perpendicular to your line of sight you perceive it as a plane surface, the matter aspect. If now you rotate the plane through an angle of ninety degrees, the surface will disappear from your sight, leaving only one dimension, the energy aspect. You have not changed the plane in any way. You have merely changed your point of view, or technically, you have changed your point of reference. The amount of energy which is apparently contained by a given body of matter depends entirely upon how far it has rotated upon the mass energy axis (defined by the quantity C, the radius of curvature of all natural law) with respect to the given observer. Another observer, observing the same body from a different reference point, would find an entirely different amount of energy. 
·        ENERGY: We will define energy as the ability to create changes in the position or condition of objects or points of reference. However, energy can create change, only when there exists a differential in the two points between which the change becomes manifest, or when the unit of energy has become divided into its two component parts called poles, or charges. One positive and one negative pole or charge, when united, constitute one photon or quantum of energy. (definitions  of the natural laws: space time mass matter energy gravity)
·        The Quantity C, the speed of light energy differential, is the pivotal point upon which the natural laws become manifest
·        The Quantity C is the kinetic energy equivalent of the mass energy of matter.
·        The Quantity C manifests as electromagnetic radiation covering a tremendous range of frequencies (also, each different type of atom has its own characteristic set of frequencieshttp://exploringenergyevolution.blogspot.com/2013/12/atoms-to-galaxies.html)
·        The Quantity C is the radius of the curvature of natural law, meaning if a differential of energy equal to this quantity exists between the observer and the point which he is observing, the natural laws will be suspended. If the energy differential is in excess of the quantity C, the laws will appear to operate in reverse at that point.  
·        The Quantity C is also the velocity at which the universe folds and unfolds, from the STILL POINT – between the infinitely large and infinitely small  –  between Barbara Dewey’s “Big Blink” of the constant moving instant ‘Now’, ‘Now’ – or Walter Russell’s “point of rest” between the stages of unfoldment and refoldment, the cycles of ‘genero-activity’ contraction of gravity, at the inner explosive speed of light –  and radioactive expansion of vacuity, at the outer explosive speed of light.

FREEDOM: Effective, complete and total control, of thoughts, beliefs, and scientific advance

Effective, complete and total control, of thoughts, beliefs, and scientific advance obstructing wisdom and understanding, is now spreading its unique roots through the internet.

Opposition to the huge massive profits in the towering economic divide will not be tolerated. It is ostrich and adapt for the masses all the way down now. Innovation how far past due and why?

Cracking The “Conspiracy Theories’” Psycholinguistic Code: The Witch Hunt against Independent Research and Analysis

A new crusade appears to be underway to target…   “The Plots to Destroy America: Conspiracy Theories Are a Clear and Present Danger.”

As its discourse suggests, this propaganda campaign is using the now familiar “conspiracy theory” label, as outlined in Central Intelligence Agency Document 1035-960, the 1967 memo laying out a strategy for CIA “media assets” to counter criticism of the Warren Commission and attack independent investigators of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. At that time the targets included attorney Mark Lane and New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, who were routinely defamed and lampooned in major US news outlets.

Declassified government documents have proven Lane and Garrison’s allegations of CIA-involvement in the assassination largely accurate. Nevertheless, the prospect of being subject to the conspiracy theorist smear remains a potent weapon for intimidating authors, journalists, and scholars from interrogating complex events, policies, and other potentially controversial subject matter. GLOBAL RESEARCH

Pentagon Preparing for Mass Civil Unrest.

A US Department of Defense (DoD) research programme is funding universities to model the dynamics, risks and tipping points for large-scale civil unrest across the world, under the supervision of various US military agencies. The multi-million dollar programme is designed to develop immediate and long-term “warfighter-relevant insights” for senior officials and decision makers in “the defense policy community,” and to inform policy implemented by “combatant commands.”

During the Obama administration, according to Pentagon data, police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.
The equipment has been added to the armories of police departments that already look and act like military units. Police SWAT teams are now deployed tens of thousands of times each year, increasingly for routine jobs.

“The chain of resonance’

Peter Jocis shared Deepak Chopra‘s photo. Facebook

 “The chain of resonance’ is the idea that all matter from the tiniest particle to the universe itself are connected through a series of vibrations.”

This fundamental concept is now emerging from numerous fields of science simultaneously.
Going further, as rates of vibration, oscillation and frequency are synonymous, we now see Max Planck’s ‘law of radiation’ equates exactly to the metaphysician’s tenant that the existence levels of any particle, matter, or being, are entirely proportionate to their rate of vibration.
Solving for the common vibration denominator of the natural laws – space time mass matter energy gravity – we find Light, the quantity C, becomes the defining pattern of physical reality, the radius of curvature of all natural law. http://exploringenergyevolution.blogspot.com/
 “Let there be light” is beginning to make sense on a far broader scale.

World Renowned Physicist Explains The Reality Of “Free Energy” & How It’s Accessible

Our world is constantly bombarded with the idea that we are facing an energy crises, that  resources are too scarce in order for us to provide enough energy for the billions that inhabit the planet today.  Barack Obama has constantly urged the country to accelerate the pace toward adopting clean energy technologies that can free us from our dependence on oil. His administration and many others continually ignore the truth of zero point energy, also known as “free energy.” He constantly points out how we are making progress, that our dependence on foreign oil is declining, and that we will need to use natural resources to generate energy. We don’t need to use natural resources, there are better ways, and “free energy” could be one of them.

The reality of free energy cannot be denied, the controversy that comes into question is whether we can tap into it, and generate enough of it so that it can be useful. A lot of evidence points to the fact that we can, and already have.

“These concepts have been proven in hundreds of laboratories throughout the world and yet they have not really seen the light of day. If these technologies were to be set free worldwide, the change would be profound, it would be applicable everywhere. These technologies are absolutely the most important thing that have happened in the history of the world” (10) – Brian O’leary, Former Nasa Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor

Below is a video of world renowned Physicist Harold E. Puthoff. He is an American physicist who earned his Ph.D. from Stanford University. He is the director of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin. His research ranges from theoretical and experimental projects in electrodynamics, quantum physics, gravitation, cosmology, energy research and more. He has published over thirty technical papers in the areas of electron-beam devices, lasers and quantum zero point energy effects….more
