The Perfect Meritocracy?

Earlier in time I wrote about how to create an ideal meritocracy system, a society where inheritance system is eliminated, people are rewarded as what they are capable of and… And I stopped there, I couldn’t figure out the rest of it–How do you even eliminate inheritance system first? In order to achieve equality for all?

But… could communism be the perfect meritocracy model for everyone? ...READ MORE

The Wanting Itself Is Attractive

Real world has all types of temptations, money, power, women and fame.

To ordinary people, these things are always desirable.

However, it’s the wanting itself being attractive, not the objects being inherently attractive.

We realize our values onto things we want, thus they are attractive.

Money, power, women and fame, are all heavily valued by most people.

When one object gets much value, it becomes desirable. ...READ MORE

Fakery

Able men are humble.

If brute force pervades savage world, then lies are the currency of civilized society.

If one can lie and cheat to his way, why in the world would one use brute force? A much costlier and harder method of dealing with things.

Lies don’t cost anything. You only need to present a falsified reality with a set of rhetorical words, to deceive, and to cheat.

I find that weak people always seek ways to pretend themselves as the strong. Out of sheer self-protection? Or vanity? ...READ MORE

Cancer

Cancer is more of a mutation to the body. Most cancers relate to patients’ DNA structures.

And unlike external invasion, cancer is self-procured.

Diseases can be divided into two main categories, external pathogens or auto-diseases.

The pathology of cancer is the unlimited and uncontrollable cell division of a certain type of cells. ...READ MORE

Farmer and Snake

In Traditional Chinese parables, there is a story about a farmer and a snake:

Long time ago, in a frosting winter, an old man was pacing slowly on frozen water for home.

Some time later, he saw a strange stick lying on the ground. Despite the heavy snow splashing into his face, he went forth and found out the strange twisted stick was not a stick at all, but a frozen snake.

The farmer braced the snake into his chest, and kept on heading his way home. ...READ MORE

Independence, Patriarchy and Society

Patriarchy stems from male independence, an indivisible relationship.

In society, what does independence consist of?

  • Physical independence: Physical independence is sheer force, sheer physical power. The stronger your body is, the more power you can amass in order to assert rules over others.
  • Wealth independence: Wealth independence is free from poverty, free from lack of materials. Or very much a resource gatherer. The resources boost your other independences.
  • Love independence: Be able to stand on your toes and free to choose partners. One is able to have choices, and in no lack of love from others. One is cherished, with a stable/level mind.
  • Socioeconomic independence: A modern term combined with previous two independences, plus a social repute. Free from opinions, free from bad words, free from bad/lower social rungs that linger at higher social rungs.
  • Wisdom independence: Being agile in mind fields, one is able to solve problems. And scale himself at a vantage point in order to outmaneuver others.

One shall keep himself safe from harm. One shall feed himself enough to survive. One shall have partners yet not clinging on them. One shall be respectable. One shall have set of skills to outmaneuver others.

All these things can be achieved by men, and men alone. Women certainly have a hard time on achieving all these independences all by “herselves”. ...READ MORE

Hoax

Suppose your senses are lying to you, which makes all of your perceptions none other than illusions.

If I am, in a simulation machine, which all of my senses are artificially simulated, the senses are so real I can’t tell whether I am in a simulation machine.

If I am indeed in a simulation machine, how come I never wake up once to know the real world? The hypothesis is that I live inside a simulation machine, the opposition is that I never wake up to know I live inside a simulation machine. ...READ MORE
