A New Book Published by a 2010 Urgent Evoke Hero-- Indigenous Knowledge from philosophy to design

2011 Urgent Evoke Social Innovator, Legendary Agent/Mega Hero Dr. Ampat Koshy has written a book in which he codifies indigenous knowledge of many cultures, from Plato and the ancients to current philosophers and philotechs and more!!! I am posting my review here-- it is a great book, and I hope you all try to read it. :)

(short version:)

"Wrighteings" is a challenge, but also a really fun book to read, if you can take time to attune to the cadence of the words. Koshy writes… Continue

hajj for humanity extra information

Here are some of the additional issues I am considering pertinent to the establishment of Hajj for Humanity as a 501C3- and shari’a law approved humanitarian foundation, for which more expert analysis and advice is needed:

(1) The premise of "Hajj for Humanity" is based upon the apparent spirit of cooperation and mutual toleration among and between peoples of various religious sects, nationalities, races during the Hajj. I am hoping that "Hajj for Humanity" project leadership,…

Act9 Darksite KREUAP Killer Robot Uprising Emergency Action Plan

Robots have not yet ascended to a level of development wherein they are capable of a hostile uprising. But the possibility exists.

This crisis can occur any where in the world, at almost any time suitable technological levels have been obtained. The crisis could be holistic, causing collapse of all support systems and integrated interfaces as we have come to use them.

It is best to be prepared.

Given the networking capabilities and AI capacities of the anticipated Robot…

Secrets of crisis communication Learn9

"Good things happen if you do them." Crucial to communicating in a crisis, and preparing for a crisis, I think, are the concepts listed under psychological first aid: safety, calming, connection, efficacy, and hope.

Regardless of climate, custom, creed, or community, survivors of any crisis need to feel safe: removed from the threat.

People need to feel secure, and calm: able to undertake specific actions and attainable goals to protect…

We are Indigenous because we are conscious of Responsibility, Imagine8

When I am 100, or, if our peoples and communities have become resilient and health issues no longer as limiting as they are today, when I am 100 years older than now, I would like to imagine that the world has become a cohesive, resilient and interdependent grouping of communities, nations, regions and peoples. I would like to imagine that Mother Earth is the base planet for off-terrestrial expeditions, and that we, as humans, have evolved enough so that possible contact (nods to Carl Sagan…

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
