The True Face of ‘Money’ Ain’t Pretty

Originally posted on Steem (@phaelosopher) I am still new to the CryptoSphere, having only begun studying the phenomenon and its social *implications* of bitcoin and friends in February of this year. Every day is discovery for me, even at “three score and five” times around the sun. The social implications of the bitcoin and alt-coin ascendancy *at this time* is…

Bitcoin and Cryptos as ‘Value Instruments’

This might sound obvious, nit picky or not important, but bitcoin isn’t money. None of the alt-coins are money. They function like money, but they’re not. They are actually better at being what we think of as “money,” than money is. This insight has been percolating in and around my mind for some time. What to do with it, has…

Discerning Bitcoin’s Value

A recent story published on Cointelegraph reports a “warning” from Goldman Sachs that bitcoin’s price will turn in a bearish direction once it hits $3,100. This amounts to either wishful thinking, or inside information to a planned “event” (that will be temporary, if it happens at all). While I am still a newbie in the cryptosphere, I’ve been around the…

Way Beyond Money: The Importance of Bitcoin

I have had quite a bit to say about bitcoin lately, but have taken little time to write. My evangelizing about the coin and its implications has been so constant and intense (for me anyway), that one subscriber on my YouTube channel asked if I had turned it into The Bitcoin Channel. It would have been a fair question (and…

Bitcoin: The Emergence of ‘New’ Money

For all the actions that humankind has taken to create a devolutionary spiral to the lowest depths of a civilizational abyss (although I’m sure we can go lower if we try), a doorway will always appear that will allow the astute and willing to save themselves from a fate that would befall an obedient, distracted, complacent, stubborn, or unthinking herd. The…

Life Without Food: A Post Mortem

Since coming off a 20-day, water-only fast on Easter Eve, where my body weight plummeted to 160 lbs, my energy, strength, and outlook continues to grow brighter. However, eating once again was not to be rushed into. The bathroom scale indicated 160 lbs only a few days ago (Sunday). My first “food” intake after almost three-weeks was cold-pressed apple juice. I also…

Life Without Food: When the Body Says ‘No Mas’

Today, on Easter Sunday, would have represented day 21 of a 40-day fast, but yesterday, the half-way point, at 160 lbs, my body said “no mas.” I have yet to “eat” anything solid. A glass of cold-pressed apple juice, followed up by a fresh blend of unpasteurized orange and pineapple juices, and several cups of vegetable-broth miso soup, was a marvelous feast for…

Allowing My Body to Heal (Not “Cure”) Itself

I am on day 4 of a 40-day water fast, and all is well. My days are as long and active as ever. The main difference is that there’s no “dinner time” for me. I am doing this as part of a larger shift to allow my body to cleanse, repair, and regenerate parts that have been under great stress…

Rebooting Myself: The Ultimate Journey

the ultimate journey

I didn’t watch President Trump’s speech yesterday, so I don’t know what he said, and have no opinion about it, other than we got what we were willing to bet on, and that he remains the lesser of the “two evils” that Americans were given the illusion of choosing. Mr. Trump is not our problem, nor our solution. Irrespective of who caused, or is still causing…

‘Dividable’ Americans, Not Trump, Are America’s Greater Weakness

It has been quite the new beginning for 2017. Now let us get accustomed to what seemed like the most unlikely of outcomes; i.e., the election of Donald J. Trump as president of United States of America Corporation, who managed to make it through the inauguration. Perhaps it was never in doubt, but it sure seemed that way. I am…

A Voice and Power From Within: ‘Dear Diary’

By whatever name or tradition you prefer, I send joyful and sincere Holiday greetings to everyone. As this new solar (and soular) cycle ascends, may our appreciation, awareness, trust for, and use of the Great Power within us, also grow. Did that sound a bit “woo woo”? If so, so be it. It has become evident to me that the netherworld of what mainstream opinion shapers…

Vortex Generators for Sustainable Agriculture Webinar

vortex generators

I’ve been quiet lately, but busy. Reading more than writing, shooting video, and getting some of the bugs out of this site, which sometimes ran VERY SLOW. More functions, plugins, and large images files (I should know better) may have had something to do with it. I also realized that my original WordPress site would likely still be there, although perhaps in…

Saying Good-bye, and Hello

NOTE: This article is a duplicate of the last post from my WordPress site. This is a one-time event.  Earlier this month I received a quiet announcement that Thought For Food had been on WordPress for 10 years. Working with, and guided by an India-based website developer/designer/SEO analyst Radhey Sharma, the new Thought For Food (www.phaelosopher.com), will be an amalgamation and synthesis

Election Season: Time to Start Speaking Up

The Clinton Trump Show is set to come to a head soon and, it will be what it will be. For all the concerns that you hear from politicians during an campaign race about “jobs,” it is rarely considered that, for the most part, those “jobs” will be of little interest to most employees. “Jobs” is the word that politicians use to create a Pavlovianesque salivation response, which suggests that the masses have little in the way of resourcefulness to find or create their own jobs. This notion has evolved, in part, through educational entrainment, early in life, to pursue employability, so as to earn someone’s favor who will pay you money for your favors (i.e., skills). Money is deemed, without question, the way to establish one’s value, both to self, and to society. It is a false notion, and one way that we lose connection to our heart and soul.

Novel Idea: How about Postponing the Election?

If democracy is to work, the responsible thing to do is to acknowledge when it is not working as intended, so that appropriate changes can be made, not by the politicians, but by The People. It begins with changes in thinking, from which new choices and behavior will follow.

Principle-based Elections: A Makable Change

After watching the third presidential debate and the “roast” fundraiser the following night in New York where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were featured speakers, it first occurred to me that the best action the American People can take at this time is refuse to vote for either Democrat or Republican candidate.
