Bringing ‘The Debt Age’ to an End

I’ve lost more than my proportional share of bitcoin through various accrual platforms. In my first Steemit post I talked about one that I had high hopes of, called WalletPllus. A month after writing that article, WP went away suddenly, which prompted a reader to remark: “Well WalletPllus was a scam and that makes u????” His inference, that WP was…

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…

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

A Day of Reckoning; A Cry for Help

Today is one of those “zero” days in my life; a reset day, where we cross the event horizon that marks change. Sometimes we know it when it’s happening. Other times, we don’t. Today I know. What I don’t know is how it turns out. In previous posts I have sounded mild alarms, due to a shortfall of money. It’s personal and business…

Money and Competition: A Dysfunction Duo

I want to thank those who have responded to my call for fiscal Samaritans. I have talked to some and gained an appreciation for how the work I’ve done has touched their lives. Or to put it differently, how they have enriched  their own lives on the strength of choices they made after receiving information that I delivered. The donations and purchases…

Freedom and the Suggesters of Untrue Truths

With the celebration of our nation’s independence, the July 4th holiday can be bittersweet if you perceive freedom in a form that is characterized by joyfulness, health, abundance, and are not on constant alert from some perceived threat or “enemy,” whether foreign, cosmic, or within. From microscopic bacteria and meteorites the size of Mount Everest, to plasma bursts many times…

Money Talks: Proclaims Self ‘God’ of This World

In the Bible it is written that “The love of money is the root of all evil” (1 Timothy 6:10). From many perspectives, there appears to be much truth to the adage. Yet, in The Kybalion, another book of ancient wisdom, it is written that “all truths are but half-truths.” And while the latter might appear to “dilute” the former,…
