DAO - Delegated Autonomous Oracle
« on: January 06, 2015, 06:38:24 AM »

Let's all share some of our favorite nuggets of wisdom... :)


This chapter from the Dao De Jing has been coming to mind lately.

Quote
9.
Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.

'Translated' by Stephen Mitchell

Or another more legit translation, of the same verse:

Quote
9.
To hold and fill (a vessel) to the full (ying),
It had better not be done.
To temper and sharpen a sword,
Its edge could not be kept (pao) long.
To fill the hall with gold and jade,
There is no way to guard (shou) them.
To be rich, exalted, and proud,
This is to invite blame (chiu) upon oneself.
When work is done (sui), the person (sheng) retires,
Such is the Tao of heaven.

Cass, you have to play along if you're going to post here... ;) Nuggets of Wisdom!

Honestly i don't know if that's a ripple thing or not, is it?  It just came to mind late late last night.
Confession: I've never used Ripple, and have never owned any XRP   :D

Quote
"Those who serve life adapt to changes as they act.  Changes arise from the times; those who know the times do not behave in fixed ways.  Therefore I say, 'Ways can be guides, but not fixed paths; names can be designated, but not fixed labels.' "  - Wen-Tzu, Verse 6

Message from the Hopi Elders
Hopi nation, Oraibi, Arizona

We have been telling the people that this is the
  Eleventh Hour
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is
  the Hour
And there are things to be considered.
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in the right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
This could be a good time!
There is a river flowing now very fast
It is so great that there are those
  who will be afraid.
They will try to hold onto the shore.
They will feel they're being torn apart and
  they will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore,
  and push off into the river,
Keep our eyes open, and our head above the water.
See who is there with you and Celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take
  nothing personally.
Least of all ourselves.
For the moment that we do,
Our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over, Gather Yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and
  your vocabulary.
All that you do now must be done in a sacred manner
And in celebration.
"We are the ones we've been waiting for..."

Nailed it with the eleventh hour.

Here is one from Steve Jobs. His co-worker in NeXT is commenting "so really the next 90 days are all important" and Steve goes "we are going to make it or break it based on whether we can provide products .. and sevices and relationships ... that no one else provides, and i think we ought to spend a 100% of our time thinking about that - and if we can't do that then we ought to go broke."

Quote
If we hope to stem the mass destruction that inevitably attends our economic system (and to alter the sense of entitlement - the sense of contempt, the hatred - on which it is based), fundamental historical, social, economic, and technological forces need to be pondered, understood, and redirected. Behavior won't change much without a fundamental change in consciousness. The question becomes: How do we change consciousness?

― Derrick Jensen, The Culture of Make Believe


In the spirit of the OP, I threw the coins on the question and they returned Hexagram 50:


Quote
From coming out to life to going back to death:
Those companions (t'u) of life,
They are one-third (shih-yu-san);
Those companions of death,
They are one-third;
Those living but moving toward the place of death,
They are also one-third.
Why?
Because of the intense (hou) life-producing activity.
I have heard that one who knows how to nourish life,
On land meets no tigers or wild buffaloes,
In battle needs to wear no armors or weapons,
A wild buffalo has nowhere to butt its horns,
A tiger has nowhere to sink its claws,
A weapon has nowhere to enter its blade.
Why?
Because such a one has no place of death.

Clarity in action... the same advice most definitely applies to BitShares, right now, and I for one will be posting those words somewhere i can see them every day!  I've never been a huge Steve Jobs fan, nor a detractor, but after watching that video you linked to, all I can say is... respect!

Amazing!  I don't know many people familiar with Derrick Jensen.  'The Culture of Make Believe' is of the most truly impactful books I have ever read.

And this!  Also amazing... I've been consulting the I Ching with help from Stephen Karcher's 'Total I Ching', for a few years now.  Really good stuff.

After looking at hexagram 50... I am now trying to wrap my head around this concept of the blockchain as a digital cauldron, or vessel of the digital age... no longer a source of power to dominate, but to unite. 

One of my all time favorite Derrick Jensen clips.. :)

Era Of Shattered Illusions

In any contest of strength and will,
he who knows himself best,
he who sheds all illusion,
will be the winner.
