It’s Should Never Be work. Its Just A Curious Kid’s Exploration

The alarm rings & its time for me to get up & get ready for work once again. I wish I could get a few more hours sleep & actually taste my breakfast for once, rather than having to waffle it all down in a bid to beat the morning rush. But then I snap out my wishful thinking & remind my self that they are millions of people around the world with working days just like mine. Who am I to bitch & complain about working for a living I should be grateful right? Well is it really wishful thinking for me to expect the majority of my life to be spent on something I am actually passionate about & contributes positively to society? After-all time is the only real commodity I have, once its gone, its gone.

Thinking back to my younger days where the luxuries of food & shelter was a given & all that you worried about was what new discoveries will be made in the garden, park or if your lucky museum. So what inspired me to go running through the bushes, read up on far & varied topics from outer space to the adventures of Alasdair Gray books, way before money was an incentive & when did it all change. It seems that a clear shift in attitude occurred when your asked as a child “What do want to be when you’re older” this implies you need to pick a field & stay in it.

For a child exploring the world that seems very confining, to stay in one field of interest. However in order to continue living your told “you need to find something that pays & whatever time you have left you can spend on your interests”. Is this really still necessary in the 21st century, surely the most beneficial thing for the broader public health is for people to get up every morning with an appetite for new discoveries & pass on this enthusiasm on to the people they engage with. Similar to the infectious nature of a curious kids need for exploration.

Steps In The Right Direction

It’s now been approximately 4 weeks since we decided to invite the global community along on our journey of enlightenment. A journey, which has been months in the making & is starting to feel like a step in the right direction. There has already been meaningful engagements with other bloggers making strides in their on respectful fields, who have naturally gravitated to the ethos & content on our site. To be specific we have had contact from 5-6 different people over the course of 4 weeks, which averages out to an engagement a week :-). This may not sound like a lot in the online world however this has been achieved through no marketing & has been prior to us linking our social profiles to the site. In addition to the relative progress of our site we’ve individually experienced a weight of our shoulders by making positive strides towards our ambitions.

This might just be a figment of my imagination, although as I make steps in the right direction; by researching for intellectually stimulating content for the site, I have also witness a parallel of positivity within the sphere of societal progress. This has been in the form of a proposed UBI (Unconditional basic income)(More info on our F.B Oct 3.13 posting) within the EU & which is making headway in Switzerland, with a proposed 2, 800 a month per citizen. This would ensure all citizens experience the wonders of life without the stress & anxiety of seeking income for a living, which should really be the ultimate goal of any economy & refreshing in the current state of global austerity.

However on further reflection of the newfound positivity which might be due to the fact that as you become more enlightened & progress you tend to notice more of the positive energy around you due to your own positive energy attracting others, rather than you actually changing you physical surroundings. Either way it clearly illustrates the true merits of making those crucial first steps in the right direction, towards enlightenment.

Welcome to the Intellectual En-light

Being enlightened doesn’t mean deluding yourself that you are not governed by a paradigm; economically, psychologically and environmentally, its rather acknowledging the paradigms that shapes our culture in order understand & transcend them to higher grounds.

That considered I will attempt to comprehensively detail the societal model we all currently live under (the perception & reality of it), and comparing it to the prospects of emerging systems now possible due to technological advancements in various social & scientific fields.

The components that will be addressed over time to gain a comprehensive view of our societal capabilities & limitations will consist of: current knowledge of Human needs, propensities & dominant value set, The environment (our habitat), current technical capabilities (Production, distribution, etc…) and all other forms of enlightening literature.

Hopefully our journey together will be prove to be a healthy form of intellectual En-light
