My View of the 'Nombre - Number' Challenge

nōmen est ōmen
Latin - The name is a sign, the name speaks for itself.
If you like Spanish like I do, please don't confuse the word 'nombre' (the name) with the word 'number', that might be an error in this turbulent world. Spanish language lovers, always remember we should learn from our mistakes, Holocaust, take a look at this shocking photo.

My View on the Chip Shortage

No wonder there is a chip shortage because some use them differently, especially by using graphics processing units (GPU) for the blooming cryptocurrency business. Usually, people say - when there is a heavy demand the price goes down, the product matures through the 'democratization' process. Now with the environmental problems, I believe this is stopped, there will be a lot more inflation and products going out of stock. We can expect a poorer future regarding material products, I just hope civil society won't undermine the right to social protection. The Internet has been mainstreamed, good times should occur.

Free Digital Age Manifesto

The goal of the Free Digital Age Manifesto is to raise awareness regarding digital technologies and their application. Driven by the great success of free (open source) technologies, regardless of all the bugs, they drive the world's largest social and educational services as well as the various operating system cores that make up most of the devices we have at work or at home. I think it's time to take a step further.

This is clear to any economist, to any businessman who has “started from scratch”. A step further is the gradual change of perception, necessary to make achievements that according to the current model of "life is suffering" we cannot achieve. This would result in a quantum leap in the evolutionary stage, similar to the transition from dial-up internet to broadband in computer science. The worldwide IQ was increasing by 3 points every ten years due to a good education program and diet, but there was no renaissance-like social effect, and the IQ test was being re-normalized. Now, this so-called Flynn effect is at a tipping point and with a possible end of the progression. So it seems to me that we already have "hardware", and in order to achieve a renaissance-like social effect we need more freedom...

My view of new toilets
...In that name, I propose the construction of a new age toilet on all important world squares. New age toilets are mimicked - meaning a mirror on the outside and glass on the inside.

It's Official - Internet Has Been Mainstreamed

The decisive moment, a turning point has been reached - roughly 4.66 billion people around the world use the internet. It is highly unlikely that some weird stream will shut us down. The economy relies heavily on the internet, also many artists have online profiles. The internet is neutral in the globalization process because it doesn't favor global players at the expense of the local network, but giving every stakeholder a chance of a breakthrough global success and expansion.

Happy Safer Internet Day - Tuesday, 9 February 2021!

We should live in a world of post-quantum cryptography, but it's only a hardware issue. I believe on safe internet problems like "Beware – Online Marketplaces Are Dangerous", darknet and other scam sites shouldn't be accessible. It is up to the individual users to find time and report malicious activity of internet applications or a website. Good luck!

My Equality Appeal

This writing is dedicated to all the people struggling in everyday life. My equality appeal correlates with Sustainable Development Goals (2030 Agenda). Tracking fulfillment of such lofty goals is important for everyone, no matter of current challenging period. I hope so much the world will be a better place in ten years' time.

Narrow-minded Pleasures of the Flesh Bring Moral Decay
I oppose that the person is sufficiently fulfilled solely through the intake of food/drink/opiate into himself. Please stop consuming psychoactive substances. Unfortunately, more than 690 million people still go hungry. Help them by doing good deeds.

Happy International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia !

This date was chosen to commemorate the decision to remove homosexuality from the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1990. There are many queer-feminist and anti-fascist organizations which are committed to the achievement of an active society of solidarity and equality free from gender sexual norms and categories and any other kind of oppression. I wish you a happy celebration of sexual and gender diversities.

Political Correctness in Today's Time From My Perception

Today is the birthday of Orson Welles (May 6, 1915 – October 10, 1985) - one of the biggest stars in the Golden Age of Hollywood. He will be remembered as one of the most well-known artists that made many movies, theater and radio plays. The most memorable for me is the "The War of the Worlds" (1938 radio drama) that brought Orson instant fame.
 
I believe that alleged radio drama (scare) is inspiring many fake news producers today. 

On the other hand, there are so many censorship attempts that often cause auto-censorship and a lack of free-thinking. We can hear that sitcoms such as "Seinfeld" couldn’t be produced anymore because they aren’t politically correct. Nowadays "The Walking Dead" (TV series) is cool?!

Maybe people are now looking for pleasure in something more than small talk jokes. It’s very important to visualize in a good taste, you should try not to make censors busy, but still remain provocative (not boring). Extreme content in public addressing is usually not allowed.

Flavors of Democracy in My Opinion

Meritocracy is government or the holding of power by people selected according to merit (on the basis of their ability).
from Oxford
In my opinion errors in meritocracy start to show up mostly in economics, when excess profit is conducted. Having excess profit accumulates social unrest. The opposite of meritocracy is nepotism.
Technocracy is the government or control of society or industry by an elite of technical experts.
from Oxford
There is nothing wrong in saving the world by enabling people to work, to earn for everyday life essentials – that is what technocracy is trying to do. On the other hand I don’t like their rigid methods that hurt freedom of speech and expression. Technocracy is using psychocracy to penalize insubordinate, unsubmissive people. I believe the opposite of technocracy is populism.
Psychocracy is characterized by its exclusive use of psychological knowledge and methods in the governance of citizen behaviours.
Sufficiently different definition of psychocracy comes from the Urban dictionary:
Psychocracy is a government with psychopathic rulers.
Populism is politics with a face, a special touch, driven by a human often seen as a prophet, a soothsayer - a charismatic leader that usually gains greater support of the community.

Read more:
Populist leader often defies either the methods or the ideology of psychocracy.

My solution for the darkness of all the notions that gotten into democracy: I have nothing against technocracy as long they don’t use psychocracy torture methods. Similar, I have nothing against meritocracy as long there is no excess profit, or populism as long there is no cult of personalty.

Doomsday Bunkers in Nowadays - Humanity Will Prevail

The threat of climate disasters and nuclear attacks have prompted some wealthy survivalists to purchase doomsday shelters — properties that could help them survive a catastrophe. These modern, often high-end bunkers are equipped with freeze-dried food and blast-proof doors to help people live for years underground.
A doomsday bunker is a privilege for some, an accessible option in desperate need. We are all in the same boat in this global emergency. Unfortunately, some are more resilient than others. Let's cross our fingers in hope of overcoming the worldwide pandemic. There is no need for petty, pitiful disagreements with the authorities, they are professionals. I'm sure once this will be over, the authorities will reward the survivors, extending their personal freedom and comfort.

Hoping for Peace on Earth

We all need to breathe, but 'the lungs of the Earth' are in flames - Amazon wildfires. Deforestation contributes the climate change. Please make an effort and stop tearing down the Amazon jungle for narrow-minded industrial growth.

My thoughts are also with the Hong Kong people in these days of the crisis. I hope the situation will work out and all parties will be satisfied.
If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.

We Have Consumed Planet Earth Resources for This Year, but Population Will Rise to 11.2 Billion in 2100

Illustration: Pixabay

Global Footprint Network has calculated that we have consumed planet Earth resources for this year. Our planet has limits to how much it can regenerate naturally, and we are exhausting it much more.


There are going to be a lot more old people by the year 2100. I recommend setting up regulations like China had "One-child policy".

Global Warming is Confirmed - Civilization is Collapsing

Difficult times are ahead and there isn't artificial intelligence or a fusion energy reactor that will save the day. There has been so much wrongdoing, so much injustice and I'm afraid there is going to be a lot more. I don't see myself as a lazy person and that's why I hold a responsible "work cult" for most global problems. We got trapped in this "work cult" and there is no easy way out of it.

Many cities will be underwater by 2050. Most of the wildlife will extinct. The temperature will rise 1, 2, 3, 4, or more degrees. There will be shortages of many items, lack of leadership...

In all branches of science people pressurized facts to maximize profit e.g. too many pesticides on crops. There will have to be a lot of brainstorming and deep changes for survival in such awkward circumstances. I hope we'll manage to preserve those fragile human rights we have.

Does a Cosmopolitan Attitude Estrange You From Your Local People?

I believe that you shouldn't be estranged from local people with a cosmopolitan attitude. Does it always have to be that way? -No - urban, cosmopolitan thinking is more inclusive, liberal, but it's hard to maintain your viewpoints in these conservative, right-wing times.

There is pressure and stress coming from everywhere pushing you to make an error, be rude, maybe even have a psychotic episode. This highly competitive world where Universal Basic Income is not enabled is sometimes called concrete jungle. I believe we should connect and make the world a better place, regardless of all kinds of differences, and accept our neighbor no matter if he/she is urbane, a peasant, LGBTQ, or coming from abroad.
