10,557 sats stacked
stacking since: #108026
I have no idea why that happened, I was working in scrivener and then I checked the spelling and when I pasted it in stacker news it all appeared normal. Until after it was too late to edit. Some how it looks cool though.
I like Jim Kwik's acronym FAST Forget what you think you know. Forget about urgent things bothering you. Active learning, do it, build it, try it, experiment with it. State of mind and mood, it doesn't help if you are angry to try learn anything. Teach it to someone else.
While going through these 'laws' I also thought a lot about law 18. Of course we want it to succeed, but what does that even mean, success for who exactly? It means nation state currencies need to fail in order for Bitcoin to win, that is a zero sum approach, but for many people that has been a reality, switch to Bitcoin or hold on to Zimbabwean dollars is not much of an option. Stay humble and stack sats.
Whenever my kid watches the cartoon "True" on Netflix and she says "zip, zap, zoop, I choose you" I check my phone in case some one zapped me on nostr. :)
Why did you delete your post? Are you still giving away your sats?
Nayib Bukele: Greetings, good sir! Pray tell, what dost thou think of the current state of our noble nation?
Saifedean Ammous: Greetings, good sir. 'Tis an honor to be in thy presence. I thank thee for thy gracious words, noble President Bukele. Verily, I perceive great potential in El Salvador's adoption of the coin of Bit for tender legal. 'Tis a bold move, indeed. How doth thy people embrace this path?
Nayib Bukele: our people, with fervor unmatched, doth embrace this novel endeavor. 'Tis a testament to the resilience and adaptability of our nation.
Saifedean Ammous: Thy courage, President Bukele, shines as a beacon of hope amidst a world entangled in the web of inflation and hypocrisy. I trust that El Salvador, under thy leadership, shall navigate these uncharted waters with wisdom and fortitude.
Nayib Bukele: I humbly accept thy kind words, good sir. The irony runs deep indeed. Those whom doth support a leader's war cries to inflate approval ratings, while the very fabric of their economy trembles. Their horse feed prices soar, the flames of inflation scorching the livelihoods of millions. 'Tis a sight to behold, the true face of hypocrisy.
Saifedean Ammous: Thy words ring true, noble President. Hypocrisy lurks in the shadows of power, yet thy steadfast resolve shines a light upon the path of righteousness. As the winds of change blow, thy own Keiser lends his support to thy cause, recognizing the wisdom in thy vision.
Nayib Bukele: Aye, the support of the Keiser, a voice of reason and foresight, bolsters our spirits. Together, we shall forge ahead, rewriting the narrative of financial empowerment. El Salvador shall stand as a testament to the potential unleashed when innovation and wisdom intertwine.
Thus, the conversation betwixt Nayib Bukele and Saifedean Ammous
PS I really need to stop procrastinating on working on my thesis.
Thanks, there are too many ideas swimming around in my head, I hope I can get it all down.
I should probably have copied the article directly here. I was not expecting a 5-line URL from Habla Nostr :)
That was fun. :) I got three sats for looking at A.I images - It lifted my mood a bit.
So far what I got from it is that most of our life is mediated through some type of technology. We do not know what it feels like to walk barefoot any more or how to use our muscles because we use shoes and cars to get around. Traditional societies gathered around an object, but the industrial revolution saw people working 'together' but they had no real connection with what they were building since they only knew how to build a part of a part, they were not even sure what the end product is. Now with mass media - our lives are mediated through television and algorthythms . Everything is fake. People worship the fake and make it holy more so than the truth. Everything has gone upside down.
It is one of the 16 personality types devised by Myers-briggs.
The INTP personality type has an inclination towards philosophy and innovation, with a particular fascination for logical analysis, systems, and design. They are theoretical thinkers who seek to uncover principles governing the world around them. Despite their detached and analytical nature, INTPs are often so deeply absorbed in their thoughts that they may appear oblivious to their surroundings. They devote much of their time to exploring new concepts, drawing connections between disparate ideas, and gaining a deeper understanding of the workings of the universe. For INTPs, life is a constant process of inquiry into the mysteries of existence. I have taken the personality test a couple of times over many years and always land up with INTP.
Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers created the personality type indicator based on Carl Jung's work. So men and women 'wrote' it.
