I have been thinking about your comment that the abundance paradigm is boring. Truly, I scratch my head. It really took me aback.
I place myself in the paradigm. I’m giving myself the freedom of the situation, seeing how *I* would choose to approach this marvelous slack, and
I, personally, see me and my daughter together at the Pyramids (those ones in Egypt, yes), and we stand together looking at them, knowing we can
enter. Behind us is my daughter’s father with his arms over our shoulders and a hand on each of our arms. This one triangle we define is bursting
with bliss as we pause for this view, and then continue forward.
Visiting the Pyramids is kinda a kiss goodbye to the Earth for a while, for we have chosen to explore space and time. We are happy because this is
what we would choose to do. Behind on Earth, we will leave ones we love, whose bliss is more bound there, and if there are any people on the globe we
would hate if we’d spent much time with them, we don’t know who they are. The one’s we love we will always communicate with. Anyone we cared
not much for, mostly we have never seen again. Actually, we keep connected to the people we love, though people we probably would love, if we met
them at a gathering, pass by and we exchange smiles. Mostly, we don’t see them again, either.
We will be back, but for now, we leave them behind to adventure.
So, though the choices of the three of us combined might wind up leading us to a different future, that one would be my vote.
Realizing what slack we would have makes it clear to me that many would find it awesome. They could practice surfing their gnarly wave on whatever
beach they wanted to in the world, and if they felt like visiting the historic landmark of Las Vegas in teaching their children (or themselves)
history, that could be arranged, too. (All those lights are now powered by free energy.) What bliss to choose how one would create in this
quantum-driven universe, with the tools of one’s heart and imagination.
Without money, there is little cause to break the three Laws. Why would you steal someone else’s stuff when you can have your own? Why would you
hurt someone? Why would you have reason to defraud?
Maybe you wanted to devote your life to the playing of a musical instrument, or writing songs for it, but you took over the garage business from your
father because that was the most accessible source of livable income? There will be no need for such businesses, and as long as you obey the three
Laws, you can spend your time playing your instrument, recording it, and sending it out on the web for consideration and sharing. Taking breaks to go
camping with your friends/family. Or tinkering with that program trying to do it better. Or tinkering with the cars your father used to fix, because
you find bliss in it now and then. Or… Basically, having slack.
If you wanted to guild the Golden Gate Bridge in gold, you could.
You would rise in status by how you treat others and what you choose to produce. And generally, you have no more social disorders but cases of
individual conflict. In these individual cases, the procedures of which are always available for examination by those who care – which could be
anybody – via cams on the web (Personal Witness devices will be perfected, thus offering vastly more information about the incident), and via posted
statements and footage made by any who witnessed, consensus will be reached. And if an individual is determined to have behaved poorly, the
individual will move closer to “pariah” in the minds of others; the degree of movement will be determined by how unethical one had chosen to
So back to your “boring” comment. I figure that if, faced with so much to create with, you still find yourself bored, it is because you are
choosing to be bored. That being the case, what can I say?
Um. Good luck with that?
