What Singapore teaches about leadership
Singapore started development in 1965 right after it became independent. As the most know, it is a developed country. Let us know and learn a thing or two about humans and development from the nation. Singapore was populated by uneducated population living in slums. Most of it was being run by gangs and mafia. Obviously, this story predates the 60's. Japan colonized the country before world war 2. It lacks space and natural resources. So, what makes a country and society so developed in such a short amount of time? Part 2. Singapore chose the value of transparency and planning at the time of its inception. While most of the countries were ruled by corrupt and psychopathic politicians who failed to see the bigger picture, Singapore chose the efficient and transparent way of politics. The ideal way of Politics. It still imports the sand and food, obviously, because it has minimal natural resources. Still, the ease of business and state owned infrastructures, all built in decades are working great. A small land mass of 270 sq miles in total is now 8th in per capita income. Wow! Part 3. They are implementing the blockchain based financial technology to boost further the transparency. They have applications linked with CCTv cameras around the roads of the country for traffic assistance. The Prime Minister promissed that the country will be an economical superpower but never be a grey urban jungle. The skycrapers there are full of greenery. They have also dedicated a part of their landmass to pure and natural jungle area. They have Marina Beach area developed, world's biggest cassino, world's biggest stadium and vertical jungles. All these were developed in just last decade. Moreover, 17% of population, i.e. 1 out of 6 person has minimum asset of 1 million USD. WOW! While whole world kept bringing corrupt and psychopathic people to power, Singapore's friendly and transparent governance system made the impossible, possible. Whole city is a smart city. And yes, the country is the whole city. It is that small. It is world's 3rd most densely populated country and yet the most sensible, organised and developed. In next 50 years, vertical farming will make Singapore self sufficient in agriculture and food sector. What can we learn from it? We can all benefit by "right" measures. Hurting people and psychopathy are not the only way of development. When leaders, society and whole ecosystem work together in sync, awesome things happen. World will always tell you that you are not practical and a hopeless dreamer. But they're always the dreamers who change the world. Rest.. Fuck You.
Humans love being enslaved
Everything in nature works on balance. Balance is the key. Extremes don't sustain for long. Even the black holes radiate out the materials they ingulf in. Biggest of the stars die in relatively shorter period of time. We humans have existed because of the balance between two major perspectives. One is to explore, challenge, innovate and conquer. The other one is to sit back, wait and hope. Of all these, there is a common consequence uncovering. Among many, slavery is one of the most prevalent one. Gone are the days where one population physically enslaved the other. Now, when the old problems are gone, new ones are coming up. Now we are, across the globe, are being enslaved by the tools created by us. We worship our own creations and deem them as the universal law. Religion, money, technology, cultures and society. Societies were created for cumulative ease. We are social animals. We are not psychologically as well as physically capable to exist alone in the wild. We were the hunters as well as the hunted. We are not god, we are just 1% different from the chimps. The chimps who still are a part of the natural cycles. While other lifeforms concentrated on developing their physical capabilities, we developed our mental ones. And we are "not" 1% more than the chimps, we are just 1% "different". Many things they can do that we can't. To keep in mind, they are nearly 4 times as strong as we are, physically. We tried escaping the brutal cycles of life by creating societies and technologies. We created religions for controlled and directed way for the masses. We created money for accurate value and transactions and we created technology for better life standards and ease of living. Out of these, religious dilemmas are my favorite. See, the universe is commanded by "universal" laws. All other depictions are just delusion, imagination or incomplete knowledge. Of course, each religious depictions offer its own version of "perfect knowledge" and stop people to question it. A person who is a bit more smart, clever and knowledgeable created the delusion for the rest. More so, some religions even stop people from questioning much. We have become slaves of our own creations. Money, religion, tech.. all these are our creations, meant to solve our problems. But they are now lagging behind in solving the purposes they were 1st created for. But we like being enslaved. It gives us a sense of security to walk with the society. We forget, that humans are not what they are now because of playing it safe. We learn, we question, we challenge, we conquer. Lack of wisdom and abundance of tools will create more weapons. It will happen naturally. While we will be living our own lies and challenging others', we all will destroy ourselves. Evolution is the key, questioning is the key and wisdom is the key. We will not make our creations control us. They were our slaves, it is how it should be. It is how it will be.
Einstien - When you go too far into science, the line between physics and philosophy keeps getting thinner. Einstein was a visionary. He used to imagine things. Yes, most of his work was based on imagination and thought experiments. Yes, he resorted to mathematics and physics after he figured out things in his "imaginations". So, is it better way to know physics is to just sit and think rather than read books? May be! It depends on what your purpose is. If you are unsatisfied with the present norms and trying to figure out a better way, you have no books to read from. You will have to start from scratch and by yourself. I am good at imagining things from my childhood. I mean, when I studied about "Newtonian physics", it didn't amaze me. I was like, if he didn't discover the mathematical pattern, I'd have done it. And mostly, "Newtonian physics" is just a name in tribute to Newton. Galileo, before him did similar calculations. Newtonian physics facilitate our understanding towards reality, it doesn't challenge our common sense. Einstein on the other hand was a different man. In fact, he was on different level. How can you imagine at the speed of light if you've never travelled anywhere near to it. I mean, how can you 'perfectly' imagine an alien life if you've never known anything about it. He demonstrated gravity as a curvature, speed of light as a limit and time dilation. None of this ever scratch our common sense. This may be the reason why we were never taught in school about how to reach to the conclusion. Cz a very few understand this. I wonder, how beautiful Einstein's imaginations would be. He was a force. He spent years in pursuit of discoveries that he did. He did pursue because he believed in something. Yes, he was biased. After all, he was a human. A highly self-motivated human. At those times, there was yet another incredible discoveries were happening. Right opposite of what Einstein's field was. It was the awakening of the Quantum world. The world was even stranger than Einstein's theories. There were no speed limit. There was no mass. Effect of distance and time were nullified. Most were just numbers and data. Our reality, which we perceive is just a projection of the data. Many scientists don't believe in this. They too are biased. Bias is stopping them. They do not know what the universe is made up of, if not data. This is where simulation theory comes in. It is well known that our consciousness derives the meaning of outcome. The famous "slit screen experiment" is a proof. Consciousness derives the meaning of universe. It is something that transcends our earlier perceptions about it. And yes, this is where physics and philosophy starts becoming one. So, our observable universe exists because some conscious entity is observing it. Other than humans, what could it be? The great Einstein, knew all this but hesitated to acknowledge. He had his own perception about universe and the results were too wild to believe in. This has been hidden from common public but slight changes in speed of light do occur at different times. Imperfection is the core of our reality. Interesting thing about all these discussion is that our brain works on quantum level. Its functionality is very much similar to that of a quantum computer. Rare cases of telepathy between twins all around the world, belief on paranormal around the world, intuition and coincidences are all a result of it. Studies shows that universe doesn't act randomly. Everything has a pattern. Most of us just fail to recognise it. Talking about this, pattern of human mind is similar to that of pattern of AI and the universe. Our focus and clarity defines our outcome. Being in tune with one's intuition is the key to bliss and success. We have to know that whatever we need and ask for in our life is fed in our intuition. Focus on what we already are will lead to bliss. Okay! done! Now to the next level of thinking. Singularity. We talked about Quantum and Einstein's theories. Both are strange and different from each other. People are trying to unify both the theories. This is called singularity. After string theory, it is the time of higher dimensional talks. We live in 3D world. i.e. length, width and height. The theory unifying both the Einstein's theory and Quantum theory is called Emergence theory. It tells that our 3 dimensional reality is a projection of 8th dimensional reality. And consciousness is an integral part of it. It will take scientists years before debunking everything but we still can use the enlightenment to make our lives better. We are equipped with natural quantum computer after all. I wonder, what we can achieve and how much we can achieve if we trust our intuition, connect dots logically and focus. And logic is important. All the information is derived through mathematics. If you are illogically crazy, biased and dogmatic, none of the dimension is for you. Cool. Everything boils down to focus, thinking, calculating, emotions and us. Life is important to give universe a meaning. There, a question arises. can consciousness exist without life? Are we a part of a bigger collective consciousness? More to learn, more to question. But we ourselves are made up of those particles and data. We are a part of that consciousness. Learning about it can really help ourselves. Thank You.
we all are one
