Individualism

A lot is being spoken of excessive Facebook et cetera use but it seems there is evidence on the health benefits of usage for older People. Perhaps that is the correct direction to think in next, regarding social media. What Entrepreneurial Teenagers could do is help the Gramps make their best first impression as they step on the “digital ship”. If I had the time, I’d start by gathering groups of Elders to start in simultaneity as a group: “Beam us in, Scotty” -style.


Individualism is going on everywhere around the Planet at an increasing rate. It’s everywhere on the news, all the Circles in-the-know are discussing it and their relation to it. I think it’s a good thing, individualism, since it is the outcome of what has become possible in modern Human life. We just need to learn to control it: balance it with the other side, the group. 

One good example of this everyday balance that I’ve loved using is from the film-version of the Swedish TV series Solsidan. I’ll admit to not having seen the series much at all but the movie is fantastic. There are social awkwardnesses and clashes and all manner of Swedish silly craziness: the thing that pulls it together is the Finest Lady who flashes both middle fingers and shouts out ”Fuck off!” as a lesson to us all in claiming our own space. 

I’ve really seen this attitude on the ground more and more (or has the movie caused me to realise it more?): Finns and other Northerners, Greta Thunberg United and onwards, starting to push back and claim their right to their own future. The ”fuck off!” -mentality, through which I’m sure many rights will be gained, is clearly the voice of the Digital Kids Generation using what they have to claim what is theirs to be achieved.

So, to reiterate, I think individualism is a good thing. Individualism allows us to experience that part of life as who we are.

But it needs to be controlled: there is a lot of potential power in ”fuck off!” It is easy to forget the beingness of other People. In the Northern context (at least), I think right now what we should be thinking is how do we help balance and rebuild the entire stability of the Middle East. My current approach operatively is to start thinking about whom amongst the current diaspora are fittest to lead the home transmission of learnings from their Northern stay. I do not mean this in any discriminatory way: quite the contrary.

Planning a resurgence of knowings in the source lands of mass migration is the mass healing of the land itself. I believe it should be taken as a granted token that all land should want to be in a good state. During my studies in Copenhagen, Denmark, at the Copenhagen Business School, I have, for example, studied the Indian diaspora and their return to India, People who have been leading entrepreneurial growth surges and bringing prosperity to their returned homes. I think there are learnings available from that and other similar trends going on in Asia from which Finland could learn, helping position it better regarding the Middle East, and the whole on-going situation on that front of straightening out societal imbalance.

Supremacy Over the Tool

“At work, time is money (never question that). Outside of work, the exact opposite seems to be true (that time is anti-money).

Well: unless you’re gaining on capital, which you should always try to be, in my opinion. It’s the smart, long-term thing to do fiscally, and a measure of freedom is the ability to do it: however it happens. There are many trust mechanisms that can be deployed to operate a fiscal layout into the future.”


Ultimately, supremacy over the tool comes down to whether or not you have notifications turned on.

I’d say it is smart to consider why you’d want to be at least partly submissive: the primary value of automated notification is speed-to-outcome regarding the information.

That in turn forces the consideration of the desire to obtain the outcome. Must everything be carried? That is to say: notifications have time-cost weight, and not all information is worth the carried effort.

So it’s like: “Babe, what’s your Notifications-policy? I’m all outta digital whack and gotta clean up this screenplace.”


The proper way to ask the question is “Witch came first: Chicken or the Egg?” then she decides what she’ll have.

Democracy

Captain on an Internet Bridge, next day: I am once more happy to report that the 50/50 balanced mixture of Pink A.F. (As Flamingos) (Pinot Grigio Rosé from Italy) & Sugarless Sprite works mycket bra during a mid-Wednesday dog-and-rest.


Captain on an Internet Bridge: I am happy to report that the 50/50 balanced mixture of The Damn Wall (Chenin Blanc from South Africa) & Sprite sans sugar works fine and dandy for a post-Tuesday sit-at-home.


When it comes to Russia: the flip from the USSR to today is just insane to even begin to think about. We’ve been brought up with the amaze-story of Finland growing from an agrarian state to today in less than eight decades, but what’s gone on across the border to the east during the last three reaches a whole other level of whack.

To be honest I think Yeltsin, drunkard as he was, is the main pain behind modern troubles yet to be overcome: that said, I don’t think it was naturally feasible to expect anything else than a Human-packaged Vodka Bomb to be able to crash through the gates of the USSR at such a pace that the resulting impact would turn it back into Russia. I mean that with all due respect, of course: no matter the style, the change was accomplished and the Cold War ended. What I’m saying is that perhaps the natural equity fallout could have been handled better should it have been someone less intoxicated at the helm: allow us to continue being honest, in full respect, there was a combination of own tank and own Parliament (which just very easily translates into own goal).

Russia, what was before 1917 (the year that brought us in Finland our independence, for which we are ever thankful); its essence is only now starting to rise above that of the Soviet Union. I’ve hung out with Russians my age travelling the world on high corporate pay, dreaming of making big money in graphic design (great market opportunity in Russia).. so much stuff yet to see happen in Russia. Though I acknowledge that things are still tougher there than here, noting in particular that I personally consider local politics to be the political form of the highest calibre, then forgive me for being honest and saying that I, truly, have faith in the leadership skill of President Vladimir Putin. He turned me with his interview on MSNBC with Megyn Kelly in the spring of 2018 by saying: “It is not important to project power. It is important to manifest it.”

To me that sounds like the drive to help people grow further into their fuller capacity, which is what the Russians (to my perception) are doing, as I imagine they will be for quite some time yet.

But, indeed, won’t we all.

The answer to macroeconomics is land(ing). There is land and it is functioning in some way, as an outcome of contracts created prior. Upon considering a blank map we can see how power condenses itself into zoning rights. Of course, it is the cloud(ing) that controls that: we know what we study, and tend to act accordingly.

For Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II, who hath asked but almost a decade ago, right after the financial crisis: something along the lines of “what didn’t we know?”

I say to You, Madame Queen: I do not see it as such that we can expect People to know what People don’t know until they know it. It is my theory that what was learned from the financial crisis was a valuable lesson in checking in with the fundamentals, the primary value being that we now understand that they (the fundamentals) have some (value, that is).

It is proper to recap the fundamentals, briefly. The productivity and productivity potential of land is what, ultimately, drives housing prices. The productivity and productivity potential of land and housing prices cannot be separated from each other: the People working determine the People buying, when confining an economic consideration into a local area.

A primary limiting factor of a local area is its entrepreneurial propensity, for example: a boom arising from the arrival of one big employer can only sustain itself if it can be met with the required entrepreneurial support network, meaning everything from culture to hospitality, which sustains a local area by feeding the resident Society. This creates a strengthening bond to the local area, over time.

A factual, ground-based knowing of this type of events in a local economy are what determine the potential of a Financial Institution to lend, alongside the study of the business-to-be-located. What we can learn is that there should never be too much of a distance between the asset and the Lender. Every kilometre from a location, every added dimension to the contractual structure of a derivative, is distance.

Banking is and always will be a local job, because that’s where the assets, ultimately, are. Even if You mostly look at them on paper: out there on the ground they are, somewhere. It then becomes a matter of relativity as to your position of power as to how you define “local”: if you’re the CEO of a global bank, it’s the Planet for you.

Democracy is not the greatest thing since sliced bread: it is what created sliced bread. That is because democracy is the organised process of listening, and it exists on the market side of the societal system through the customer feedback mechanism just as it exists on the political side of the societal system through the vote.

Somebody listened to someone to figure out to slice the bread.

The thing that is problematic about modern society as it stands is that the position of democracy, not only as a term but as the behaved manner of practice that stems from it, rests fully on the political side of the spectrum, wherein lies a world of governance that opens up into a state of lockdown once every election season. Whereas the market practitioner faces the feedback every single day, the political operant stares into the gauntlet once every few years: the differences in the frequency and amplitude of listening defining the gap between these two opposing poles of society. As the position of democracy stands on the political side of the spectrum, we often forget the direction being taken in the market: day-in, day-out.

When considering democracy we see time only in election seasons, even if what it is is that it is going on every single day.

Despite their natural placement in opposition, like the different ends of a magnet, the two sides of society need to work together through their respective leaderships. So when we modernly talk about democracy, we need to overcome the problem of simply looking at one half of the societal whole: at politics. Democracy is going on beyond politics: it is the organised process of listening, and it need not be confined.

What I believe the market practitioner needs to highlight in the modern discussion is the dynamism of the modern Human. Given an unsatisfactory situation, the abundance of choice modernly available allows for rapid progress towards something more satisfactory. As the modern Human has, through the smartphone and other technology, become more and more accustomed to a fast reception into satisfaction, the stress placed upon the slower political system grows. How does the big ship keep up?

The work of the respective leaderships of the societal system needs to bring together some mutual understandings about operation that can be accepted as axiomatic truths about reality. First there is listening, yes, but then there is the making it happen. Indeed, democracy is the organised process of listening, but it is not the entire system: it is but a component. Surely it is the morally fundamental component, as central as the steering wheel to the car, but the pedals need to then become used, as well. I think the market practitioner can definitely help the politician here.

Infinite listening crowds out action. It must be accepted with a humble yet straight face that leadership is, eventually, always allowed. That does not ever mean that the listening stops. Obviously it must go on, alongside the commencement of the action by leadership.

So, ultimately, what I’m saying is that democracy is naturally balanced-out in reality by the power of authority, and vice-versa. That’s why all the Dudes in the past did all the signings on the contracts and that’s why we’re all livin’ the highering qualities.

The Towers

“On tärkeätä osata käydä ilmiömäistä keskustelua käytännöistä. Toki pitää myös osata käydä käytännöllistä keskustelua ilmiöistä.”


Based on the observation of reality as it stands, any given modern Society, from East to West, North to South, is built upon a fundamental separation of two institutions of power:

The Bank and the State.

The State exists to provide official identity and protection for it. The Bank exists to provide equity and protection for it, operating on the basis of the primacy of the State, which provides the official identities that our holdings are attributed to.

Together these form the foundations that allow the Individual to exist in a state of everyday freedom, brought to them by the logically created capacity to capitalise on opportunities and own assets as Self. Until there is a capacity for the Individual to capitalise and own as Self, there is no everyday freedom. There is a polar difference between being handed a chocolate bar at a certain time in a certain place as compared to being able to choose one, as preferred, across type, time, and location.

Obviously the moral and rational responsibility of Leaders is to ensure that everyone has a chance: simultaneously it is important to understand that there will always be a spectrum of those with more and those with less. A healthy market means for healthier business. Ergo, what’s important is making sure that the spectrum doesn’t stretch out too wide: practically all revolutionary history shows us that that is when the fan starts to get hit.

I like to think that the fan is the symbolic transmitter of equity from top to bottom: if the fan is spinning at the right frequency (correct fidelity & speed), it won’t get hit as it becomes its own protection. Ultimately, it comes down to a matter of capability in responding to and acting upon Citizen and/or Customer feedback by Leadership.

ps. what I am not saying is that there are not any more Towers. What with the being of the Media, the Churches, the Academies et cetera


“Money creates money. When it comes to a broken economy: spend it to mend it. Make sure that the aggregate supply chain is clean: all growth becomes quantum net-positive, as in both moral and numeral. The political reality of the infinite seeking of this balance: define clean and remember to ask: do I control all of the equity? To which the answer is, obviously, no I do not. But so yea: the economy. It’s definitely goin’ on!”

Merkityksellisyys

“Nykymyyjä on kykymyyjä.”


Viime vuosina vellonut keskustelu työn merkityksellisyydestä on yksi nykypäivän ilmiöistä jonka kanssa olen joutunut taistelemaan vähiten: työn merkityksellisyys on minulle niin itsestäänselvä keskusteluympäristö ettei siitä juurikaan synny keskustelua kanssani.

Työllä hoidetaan oman talouden ylläpito. Työllä rakennetaan ja ylläpidetään pääomaa jonka päällä eletään valumatta ajassa taaksepäin. Työllä saavutetaan itsenäisyys – suvereniteetti – sekä Yksilöinä että Yhteisöinä.

Ytimekkäitten ilmaistuna: työllä elätetään Itsensä ja Lähimmäisensä.

Kutsukaa minua 32-vuoden iässäni vanhaksi, sillä sitä taidan jo olla, kyetessäni taaksepäin katsoessani näkemään elämäni aikana vallinneita aikakausia ja niitä yhdistäviä itsestäänselvyyksiä. Lieneekö nuorempien digitaalinen katkos luonnosta rakentanut heille kyvyttömyyden nähdä elämän yksinkertaisimpia todellisuuksia.. ken tietää.

Työ ei ole itsestäänselvyyttä kummoisempi asia. Työ on itseasiassa yksi elämän suurimmista itsestäänselvyyksistä. Hengittämisen ja veden juomisen tasolla oleva hommien homma, joskaan ei niin automaattisesti hoituva.

Suosittelen, mitä totisimmin: jos haluaa kaivautua työn merkityksellisyyteen yhden askeleen verran enemmän – mielestäni maksimin verran – niin ei tarvitse kuin katsoa Asiakkaitaan tai muita Palveltavia. Mitä heille tapahtuu jos sinun työsi katoaa?

Vuonna 2017 olin työtapaamisessa LVI-alalla toimivan suhteellisen suuren osakeyhtiön markkinointi- ja viestintäjohdon kanssa. Keskustelu merkityksellisyydestä kesti noin kahdeksan sekuntia: jos Te ette toimita ilmastointia rakennuskohteisiin, on helvetin kuumia bileitä luvassa. Ilahduin Naisten superlämpimästä reaktiosta: hommiin ja himaan taisi resonoida heissäkin.

Onko oman työnsä edessä/takana/ympärillä olevien Ihmisten ajattelu niin vaikeata? Sieltä se merkityksellisyys löytyy.

Reconomics

Kannattaa aina tiedostaa sekä henkinen että fyysinen matka Helsingistä Utsjoelle. Siinä on välissä aika monta kehää pohdittavaa: ainakin enemmän kuin kolme.


At the base of all the considerations of Economics are zoning rights to land. This is where the mathematical-logic of Economics meets the law of the People: where objectivity fuses into emotion. This is the primary lesson of Economics: realising the duality of objectivity and subjectivity that forms reality.

Zoning decisions guide the entire process of economic, and therefore Human, growth had thereafter upon any said land in question. Here, the matching of demand to supply should be as optimized as possible: the effects on Society are longest-term. In Finland, for example, we have two large Everyday Merchant -chains (Kesko and the S-Group) who have, on this side of the millennium, begun to have become challenged by the Germany-based Lidl. Their relative political power, as measured by zoning rights and those to project their formation, determines who has how much market share in whichever planned locations of commerce.

As the transparency of the Government and its operation has improved in Finland, distancing previous strangleholds on local market areas to make space for new Competitors, so has Lidl’s position: this is a positive development, since the Citizens acting as Customers have been happy, since they’ve had more choice. The market for products has broadened: everyday life now contains more possibilities.

Here we can observe that what matters next, after zoning rights, is market share distribution amongst the created real estate: which type of market participants own (either directly or through lease-&-use) how much of what type of usable area, and how well are they doing overall, fiscally and otherwise? Since these considerations and their surroundings in Science & Philosophy will always be the access routes to the most immediate measure of a People’s well-being, I believe that local economies are the most important place to start when considering the state of a Nation objectively: what Economics is supposed to continue focusing upon. The sum of the parts builds the whole.

None of what I’m saying is, of course, at any level, new in any way: I’m just compressing it into as-fast-as-possible a reset-button. The calling of the remembrance of the obvious, so to say, in the steering of the global economy across future times, towards better directions.


Suomen kuluttajatalouden isoin haaste on S-ryhmän ylisuuri presenssi asiakasrajapinnassa. Haluan korostaa sitä, kuinka uskomattoman hyvin toimivat koneistot Keskolla ja S-ryhmällä ovat nostaneet Suomen elintasoa läpi viime vuosikymmenten, parantaen saatavilla olevaa valikoimaa etenkin tämän vuosituhannen puolella. Ongelmana on kuitenkin se, että paikallistalouksien mahdollisuudet yrittäjyyteen ovat liian kapeat sen myötä, että S-ryhmä on vallannut liian suuren osan asiakasrajapinnasta: Suomen pienkaupunkien pääkadut ovat usein miltei täysin S-ryhmän hallinnassa eivätkä yksityisyrittäjät kykene kilpailemaan tasavertaisista lähtökohdista. S-ryhmän pilkkominen siten, että sen tehokas logistinen koneisto ei vaarannu, on tärkeätä: Yrittäjien mahdollisuuksia yrittää pitää parantaa merkittävästi.

Suomi 2

Sitä saa kaupasta. Häntä ei.


Olen pitkän harkinnan jälkeen päätynyt samoille linjoille kun jotkut muut, että Suomesta pitäisi osaamistavoitteiden suhteen tehdä kolmikielinen maa. Suomenkielen opetuksen lisäksi en kuitenkaan asettaisi rajoitteita siihen, mitä muut kaksi kieltä ovat: täten Suomi lisää dynaamisuutta sukupolvien väliseen jatkuvaan kehitykseen (joka vuosi nousevalla sukupolvella Vanhempia on tuoreinta tietoa siitä, mihin ilmansuuntaan kohdistaa opinjano), joka on mielestäni suotavaa pienelle kansakunnalle. Digiajan myötä Opettajat voivat opettaa myös etänä: näin kysyntä ja tarjonta saadaan kohtaamaan kustannustehokkaasti.

Suomi saa merkittävää kilpailuetua joustavuudesta sillä kykenemme levittämään osaamistamme laajemmalle: kielitaito on kärjimmäisin keino luottamuksen rakentamiseen muiden kanssa. Itse tulen ohjaamaan Lapset mitä todennäköisimmin Ruotsin ja Venäjän suuntiin, mutta erinomaisia yhdistelmiä on ties kuinka monia. Englanti/Kiina, Saksa/Espanja, Ranska/Japani, Eesti/Hindi.. ties mitä.. kaikenlaista.

Ylitse kaiken muun näen tärkeänä sen, että Suomi tunnetaan laajasta kielitaidostaan. Se on pysyvää kilpailuetua. Lapsen oppipolun pitäisi mielestäni alkaa kielipainotteisesti (jo esikoulussa?) ja kehittyä siitä muiden tieteiden suuntaan. Lapset oppivat kieliä kuin sienet: paras mahdollisuus kaikille annetaan aloittamalla mahdollisimman varhain. Siitä sitten muodostuu kielten parissa enemmän ja vähemmän jatkavat sitä mukaa kun koulu-ura etenee.


On a very practical level of consideration, the Internet has not changed one bit in how the Youth are using it. There are various media for communication between People, and said People engage in conversation through whatever form the chosen media guides them through. Content is discovered by Individuals and shared amongst the Group. Two decades ago we used IRC as a messaging platform and shared links: many still do. These days the Kids use Whatsapp as a messaging platform to share content directly or to share links to external platforms.

Communication is communication. Given everything as it stands, we might as well officially welcome the Internet into the state of Nature, seeing as it has become a normal part of Human behaviour (as proven through continued intergenerational progress of technology uptake, seen in software usage statistics) that is beginning to be managed by regulation: as it should be. Regulation means the Internet has the propensity to live longer, as it can be trusted more certainly, allowing for investments to continue to be made into it: as they will most certainly be. This means Digital Age jobs should be secure for the time being: a long time, that is.

But so, anyway, it’s like: “Dear Internet – which is us* – welcome to Nature – where we always were.”

*well, technically it’s like an object between us? Like a function with us, its variables, flowing through.


If you do business in Sport: you’re clear to grow as long as you can attract People to the Owners’ Parties. If you’d be interested in funding a second KHL Ice Hockey Team for the Helsinki Metropolitan Region, realised in the 2020s: let me know how You intend to prove to Me that you have the required cash and which Accountancy will do the auxiliary proving of the cash being legal (probably had in simultaneity with the showing of Your Riches: Excess Tens (of Millions) is the expectation). The first thing I’ll tell you when you get in touch is that it is not a non-risky investment: you probably knew that, but it is my responsibility in business to state the obvious from the offset so that we don’t have to waste time on it later.


Nollatuntityösopimukset ovat oman näkemykseni mukaan reflektio Työnantajien liiallisen joustavuuden hakemisesta organisaatiosuunnittelussaan jolla todennäköisesti paikataan liian halvaksi painunutta yleishintatasoa. Nollatuntityösopimukset ovat hyvä esimerkki siitä, miksi ay-liikkeet ovat tärkeitä. Vaikka matemaattinen optimointi on kaunista niin en pidä nollatuntityösopimuksiin perustuvan työmarkkinan syntymistä millään tasolla toivottavana asiana: se on vaarallinen askel tasa-arvolle jota ei kannata ottaa, sillä siinä piilee voima murtaa luottamus työmarkkinoihin yleisesti, ajaen lisää kysyntää julkiselle tuelle, joka entisestään murtaa työtahtoa ja rapauttaa talousjärjestelmän elinvoimaisuutta.


Computer People have knowledge of IFTTT: if this then that -linear logic. We must remember to remind the Computer People that there are other logics: for example, in politics, imagine you are seeking but one outcome out of the system. There are two parties that can steer you towards it, and both are a time-bet either way as to one will take longer and the other a shorter amount of time to deliver the service, be it more parking or baby care or whatever. Then you have a when if them -circular logic going on. Technically, it is an input-output system like all living functions, making WIT equivalent to IFTTT. What is it that you perceive which makes it different? Is there a progression across phases in time from an objective perspective to a personified perspective, allowing for uncertainty in the result?


When you’re alone, scared, and weak: that’s when you’re most prone to being attacked in life. Seeking for these emotions pre-emptively comes from understanding past experiences of having fallen into them. When you work on your strength of bodily physique and mental valour, you’ll get over yourself. Weaknesses are weak: they ultimately fall with but a blank stare, as the muffin is left on the grocery store shelf.

But then: the muffins always come and win in the end, with their damned epic softness -strategy…

Pre-emption

Some People are still going on about Chaos Theory (Butterfly Effect), which essentially just says that theoretically there is a thing called cause-and-effect at the extremest scales. Like waking up to the smell of God’s fart.

Thus, I’ll posit Dechaos Theory: that the non-action of whatever can prevent something from happening at the other end.

😉


If You choose to use and thus cross the margin of usage, You will have results.

Here’s an interesting question: should Facebook and Others limit the amount of content that a Network Participant can feed into the Network System per day or per week, thus creating scarcity (from the limitation of limitlessness) and increasing content value?


Määrittelemällä tapahtuman hetkessä tekee kaksi asiaa samanaikaisesti: pysäyttää vanhan ajan poistamalla palasen siitä erikseen määriteltäväksi (luoden erilaisuuden luonnetta samankaltaisuudesta), ja samalla käynnistää uuden ajan määrittelemällä osalle sitä jonkin muun funktion kun puhtaan luomavirran jatkuvan täydentämisen: eli antaen osalle luonteen, jota sillä ei aiemmin ollut. Sanoisin, että määrittelyn arvo on järjen olemassaololle ja sen käytölle ääretön, sillä järki ei voi kulkea ilman sitä: määrittelemättömyyskin kun on järjen määrittelyllinen teko.


Pre-emptive industry (healthcare, insurance et cetera) brand thinking should, in my opinion, always start with the questions ”How do we become they who prevented that from happening? How do we communicate the value of who that is best?” The we-they-that and we-value-who starting points capture the full essence of what is being done, and are thus very efficient ways to get an entire pre-emptive industry organisation to think along the same main lines of thought. That is important so that the prerequisites for organisational cohesion exist, which is wanted for optimal outcome potential creation. We must, obviously, remember that every industry is, in one way or another, a pre-emptive industry: the beingness of Chocolate in the Markets pre-empts anger in the everyday, at least to some extent. The power of Chocolate is great: we must continue to remember that.


To the extent that Human Children learn by observation, imitation, and repetition, then we should realise that this never goes away. In the process of engaging and flying through our careers, we continue to learn: year-in, year-out. There’s always somebody new coming into the Office who unassumingly grabs your attention with a new way to think about an organisational process or tidbit of engineering. There’s always somebody there who grabs your eye for an extra second with how they tweak the machine during a repair, with how they sprint through the ER with the most precisely-manoeuvred haste. Work grows us, and it’s important: through the continued transfer of skills across organisational generations we pass on the knowledge required to maintain our assumed state of living. So, pretty much exactly as for exactly every other animal species out there, the process of learning is for us, as well.

“The first thing religion teaches you is that you ain’t God.”


Hoitajamitoitus on tapa laskea tarvittava tuotantomäärä työntekijöitä. Koulutusjärjestelmä tarvitsee tätä pitkällä aikajänteellä toteutuvaa laskelmaa, toimittaakseen työtään. Palvelumitoitus on tämän laskennan vastakohta, jossa hoidettavilta kysytään palautetta ohjatakseen tuotantoa hetkessä tai sen lähellä. On kyse sisäänsyöttöjen ja ulossyöttöjen mittauksista ja säädöistä. Molempia^2 pitää käyttää: sisäänsyöttöjä ja ulossyöttöjä, mittauksia ja säätöjä. Muuten homma ei vaan toimi.


Jos on epävarma Ihminen, niin silloin elää pelon jännityksen alaisena. Tämä tarkoittaa sitä, että tehdessään hommaansa on koko ajan virityksessä löytääkseen uhkia: validaatioita omalle epävarmuudelleen. Tämä on merkittävä energiasyöppö. Jos on itsevarma Ihminen, niin silloin ei menetä keskittymistään omasta suorituksesta ja pystyy kehittymään paremmin, kun häiriöalttius on pienempi. Kummankinlaiset Ihmiset voivat menestyä: harjoitusmenetelmät ovat vain erilaisia. Oikeiden menetelmien käyttöönotto vaatii itsetuntemusta, jonka saavuttamisessa ammattiapu voi olla joko hyödyksi tai suorastaan tarpeen. Uskon huippu-johtajilta ja -urheilijoilta opitun perusteella, että nämä ovat Ihmisen kehitettävissä olevia asioita.


On maamme köyhä, siksi jää,
jos kultaa kaivannet
Sen vieras kyllä hylkäjää,
mut meille kallein maa on tää,
sen salot, saaret, manteret,
ne meist on kultaiset.

This stanza of the Finnish national anthem essentially says “our Land is poor and will remain so if we just lie around wishing for riches.” But then it also says “a Stranger will look past it, but for us our Land with its various forms of Nature are most important.”


Kun lennät mielessäsi lähdettä kohti katsovaa rundia ylitse Aurinkokunnan, eli siis suljet silmäsi ja kuvittelet makoilevasi mahallasi heliosfäärin (Aurinkokunnan atmosfäärin) päällä katsoen kohti Aurinkoa ja sitä eri kiertoradoillaan kiertäviä Planeettoja, voit lisätä yhteiskunnallisen ajatusdimension tämän materialistis-objektiivisen päälle. Tällöin kykenet harjoiteltuasi näkemään, kuinka yhteiskunnan uutisvirtaa voi myös laadultaan ja määrältään kuvailla eräänlaisena “mielensäänä” joka tapahtuu eri aikoina eri paikoissa Auringon ympärillä, Auringon position ollessa vakio suhteessa katsottujen Planeettojen kiertämiseen sen ympäri.

Mielensäätä voi konseptina käyttää monipuolisesti tulkitsemaan omaa elämäänsä. Ennustettavat tapahtumat antavat näkyvyyttä ajassa eteenpäin. Esimerkki, Kaverilta Kaverille: kuulitko jo, että ylihuomenna on ennustettu Venuksen projisoivan vitutusta Marsia kohtaan? “Helvetti soikoon, jos se unohtaa vuosipäivän!”


One thing many People don’t know is that I am working on building a literal City from scratch, primarily meant to serve the Finance and IT industries, which share a common job market. It is pretty intense, because the strategic timespans for the construction of a City soar over centuries: inspect the greatest power centres of today, across the globe, and you will find that they are centuries old, Cities grown deep into the ground of historical equity, built upon the glory of victories previously had.

To think forward and weigh the geosocietal impacts of various ways of thinking regarding cultural, fiscal, and monetary (to say the least) masses, as potentially transacted across relatively present (as in near future) timelines, intended to secure the creation of value for centuries (at least, once more) as projected towards the future (as such creating the basis for investment decisions regarding the depositing of work in the City to be had): I can tell you, it is quite something.

The globalised times of today are brilliant in the potential they create for more widely spread well-being. In the Digital Age, which we have entered, we are living in realer-time than before (due to the spread of information & knowledge access), and thus the People acting as Customers in the Markets will continue to be served in this very same realer-time mode of life. We are allowed to have less patience, as the technology allows for faster service. That means the sensitivity to timezones and travel times between them are more important than ever, because intermarket operators will be leading their Organizations, serving their Customers, as the day passes by from East to West. This makes Finland very interesting as an investment zone: for example, Finland has the ability to grab the day as it arrives from Asia, process its information to create new knowledge, and toss it over the Atlantic to the Americas, fresh out of the mind’s oven.

No longer are we looking at one place (our own) when we are at work: we must begin seeing the day through the full scope of light that travels across the Continents, so that we may begin to keep up with it better. This is what you learn in thinking about Cities and their immense power.

I can recommend a book, Connectography by Parag Khanna, that can help you think about how Cities are interconnected networks of value creation and movement, and how infrastructure and power related to it is beginning to drive world policy on several fronts. There: I just recommended it.

What about the separation of Money? This is not based on data: it is a practice piece in thinking Peoplemass-relatively. It is not easy.

Urheilijoille

Tapani urheilla on henkisesti hieman taiteellinen, mutta se toimii motivoinnissa jos tarvitsee hieman lisätsemppiä: käytän käynnissä olevien urien omaavien urheiluidolieni kisanumeroita määritellääkseen toistojen tai sekuntien määrän eri urheilusuoritteissa. Eli jos heitän seiskat, olivat ne sitten seitsemän toistoa tai seitsemän sekuntia, niin samalla tsemppaan Kimi Räikköstä Alfa Romeon R&D -työssä, jossa hän nykyään radalla on. Jos vedän neljättoista, niin sama heitto menee Valtteri Bottakselle kilpatyöhönsä Mercedeksellä. Bottaksen oikea urheilijanumero on 77, mutta sillä se on epäkätevä suoritenumeroksi, ynnään sen osat yhteen saadakseni neljättoista. Tai sitten femmat Vettelille, jota arvostan muuten aivan kuninkaalliseella tasolla siitä, kuinka hän osaa pitää yksityisyydestään kiinni nykyajan mediailmastossa.


Tasapainottaakseen ajatteluaan on mielestäni järkevää muistaa, että vaikka Suomi on tilastojen huipulla, niin Suomen Kansalaiset ovat tilastojen pohjalla: he käytöksellään ovat Valtiotilastojen juuret. Joten pisteet kaikille, tulosten tuottamisesta.


Olisiko se moraalisesti oikein jos Suomen Valtio varustaisi Suomen Vanhemmat tiedollisilla aseilla Lapsiaan ja Nuoriaan kohtaan, ajanväännössä älypuhelimien puolesta ja vastaan? Joutuvatko Lapset ja Nuoret tässä epäoikeudenmukaisesti alilyöntiasemaan, sillä Valtio-brändillä varustetut sanalliset toimenpiteet ovat voimakkaita, vai onko oikeudenmukaista Valtion toimesta varmistaa tietty avoin standardiymmärrys siitä, missä menee normien rajat? Minä kannatan avoimen rajatiedon ymmärryksen kehittämistä tässä älypuhelinasiassa, ja olen kiinnostunut etenkin sen sovelluskohtaisista standardeista. Mikä on normaalin sosiaalisen median käytön taso, esimerkiksi, jolla voi kuvitella muodostavan pohjan ylisukupolviselle käytöstavan (sosiaalisen median -käytön) syntymiselle? Mikä on normaaliksi koettua seksuaalikäytöstä Tinderin ja vastaavien sovellusten ajankaudella? Missä menee eettisyyden ja turvallisuuden rajat näiden tuoreiden ja hyvin rahaa tekevien toimialojen sääntöjen kohdalla? Milloin Poliitikot aloittavat pohdintonsa ja julkaisunsa näistä aikakautemme ylivoimaisesti tärkeimmistä asioista, että heihin voisi jälleen luottaa edes jonkinasteisen ajanmukaisuuden suhteen?


Having a sauna is a great way to practice your mind in forward-oriented thinking. A sauna actively teaches you to either throw more steam on or get the fuck out.


Ihmissuhteissa kannattaa muistaa, että joskus ilmoitus on vasta-aine. Eli vanhoillisemmin: vittuilu on välittämistä.


When you think of the complexities of the networks of interconnectedness that define the global economy out of which grows all the market outcomes that we see around us: it is quite something.


The definition of an emotion comes from the picturing of the moment that it is had in. The translation of the fidelity and depth of the emotion across People is dependent on the objective context of the People as relative to the Story: are they able to draw emotional bridges from their past to the present-moment being evaluated in similarly reflectable ways, sparking the prerequisites required for an educational conversation, because there exists capacity to understand across Versions of the Story?


I am having huge trouble deciding how to think about Tinder. How is it that I am supposed to consider my opinion on this platform economy of the modern age, where it is so that I would be a participant in a self-sales market operating at light-speed? I am further affirming my position that Tinder is and will come to be discussed as a significant health risk.
