I recently had a long conversation with a friend who, like me, has a love for all things philosophy. He asked me a question that had me rather stumped. What would I do if I won a significant amount of money in the lotto.
Let's just say for conversations sake. 100 mil, after taxes left with about 55 mil.
SO while the point of this thread is: "What would you do with 55-100 Mil?"
But before you answer, let me tell you why I was stumped. I have grown into a life of contentment and peace. While I intend to buy some acreage in the mountains with a few cob houses and an organic garden, I found that with that kind of sum I would have significant leverage to help others. Be it investing in newly invented skin grafts for burn victims, dew collectors in parts of the world where people live in arid conditions, or water filters in parts of the world that have health problems due to dirty water .....just to name a few.
There is also starvation, single mothers, addicts, homeless. I mean the list goes on and on.
But I find that some people are specifically in certain situations for a reason, a life lesson, perhaps burning off karma, so on and so forth. And here you come along and take them out of that. I mean the implications here are extremely huge if you philosophically think about all of this.
Regardless, what would you do with 55-100 Million?
It's the only way I believe I could get to the higher ranks in the world.

I would stop working and try to start living a life as natural as I can possibly can get.
I would by the latest gadgets for recycling and disposal along with only as little possible polluting products.Once I succeeded I would start to help people to have a normal life people that don't have it.
Maybe i'll invest that 40 million left to assassinate the elite and keep a few to be able to keep helping people without needing help myself.
