[VIDEO] Life: Better, More Precious Than Money

Copiosis creates a new world where money, profits and material flaunting get replaced by things people consider really valuable. Like living a life worth living.

No one really wants to work their entire lives from sun-up to sun-down. Many do. But few do that because they enjoy doing that. And some who do enjoy that kind of life, enjoying it through a kind of conditioning. One blinding them to what really matters.

When asked on their death beds, everyone, including rich people, will say things they value most don’t include money or material possessions or even working. Love, family, quality time, and leisure top many people’s list. So do health and happiness.

In Copiosis, these things take precedence. Sure people still get rich. People still do things that produce quality outcomes. And they do all that while having more fun in the doing of it.

But in this new economy we created, people live free to enjoy what really matters because what really matters gets prioritized.

You’re not meant to live so you can work. You live for the living of life. In Copiosis, that’s how everyone lives. It changes what we value as discussed in this clip.

When joining forces masks insecurity

everything is possibleWe are often asked these days to join forces, work together with others, help others with their work while expecting we’ll be helped with our work. The basis of these asks is we’ll all be stronger, better off, by working together.

Recently, someone urged me to sign an agreement he created that he affirms will make the world a better place. I told him I’m selective about supporting others’ work. He got very upset and said (via text) “Perry, you are truly small.”

I think that was an insult.

Obviously, I have different ideas on this whole collaboration thing. When people are making these asks, to join forces, for alliances and such, they are coming from a place of insecurity. I believe there’s an unconscious fear they don’t have the resources to make what they want to happen and that, somehow, by joining forces with another individual or group, that individual or group will bring what is missing, making their chances of success much better.

I don’t agree with this approach because I don’t believe anyone lacks any resources needed now or in the future. It sounds like what I’m saying is Copiosis has everything it needs at its fingertips, ready to be employed: all the money, all the computing power, all the people needed to make things happen.

This obviously isn’t the case. What we do know though is at that right time, the right resources, whether it be money, people or equipment will arrive. It’s been demonstrated time and time again since we began this work.

We’re not any different from any other individual or group. We’re not special. We have no lock on this ability to create opportunity. We just know it exists and we trust that it works. And so it does.

Making what seems impossible possible depends on this trust. It depends on knowing you have all you need within you to make something happen and, most importantly, you trust this knowing.

In that trust, everything is possible.

Millennials Will Solve What Boomers Have Not

I wonder if Millennials give a shit about politics and traditional workplaces – two institutions foundational to capitalist society.

A 2016 survey seems to show they don’t. Could this indicate newer generations come pre-equipped, ready for fundamental change?

The survey linked above showed the “vast majority” of Millennials surveyed are indifferent to their employers, their missions and the work Millennials do for The Man. Equally, 44 percent say they have no affiliation with any political party.

Interesting anecdote: my former business partner has three sons, all Millennials. After watching their first presidential debate here in the US, every single one of my partner’s sons said they would not vote for either mainstream candidate.

And while they all are pursuing work, none of them are looking to work at a particular company as an employment goal. Instead they are looking for opportunities matching their interests.

Some authorities say future generations come into the world ready and equipped to make the changes previous generations have not. I’m encouraged by Millennials appreciating and getting involved in Copiosis. That they are supporting these authorities’ claims.

If they are right, and I believe that they are, then the future is always in good hands.

How the rich get richer and why that’s not a problem

THE WEALTHYAh, the rich. They have few worries.  They can pay people to take care of their problems. They enjoy the finest things.

Some people, particularly those on the left, believe that rich people are to blame for the world’s problems.

I don’t think they are.  In Copiosis, the rich will get richer, and that’s not a problem. Here’s why.

First, everyone in Copiosis becomes far richer than they are today.  You’re out of debt and can’t get back into debt.  Your house, condo, or apartment is yours. Student loans are eliminated.  If you want to continue your education, that’s provided to you at no cost.

Second, money you’ve been spending on healthcare, insurance, and taxes you get to keep.  Many formerly ordinary expenses are a thing of the past.  Your grocery costs are far less than you pay today because your basic food is yours at no cost.  If you want luxury foods, you’ll have to offer NBR for that, but it will require far less NBR than the amount of money you’d spend today.  Dining out at many restaurants will be at no cost too, if they offer basic, not luxury foods.

So if you’re not wealthy today, in Copiosis, you are in the sense that many of the things you had to earn money for are now available to you without having to pay for them. All that money you would spend on these things is now free to be used for whatever luxuries you want. What’s more, you’re free to choose any occupation you want.  You don’t have to rely on a job to earn a living.  You’re rich.

Of course, the same applies to rich people. In Copiosis, they’re even more rich than they were before. Taxes go away.  All the property they are paying for is immediately theirs, free and clear. Whatever debt they have is eliminated. Their educational expenses, basic food, and medical care—like yours—is provided to them at no cost.  No more insurance, either.  Everything you enjoy, they get to enjoy too.

Today the wealthy are also powerful. They can influence society by paying to create laws and policies favorable to their interests.   In many cases interests means not losing the money I do have and making more of it doing what I am currently doing.  In fact, the United States was founded on this basic principle.

In Copiosis, wealth has no power.  A rich person has no power to sway any decision, because wealth is expressed in terms of Net-Benefit Reward (NBR) not cash.  The only thing anyone can do with NBR is obtain luxuries.

There’s no government in Copiosis, so there’s no legislative influence to buy. Even if there were, NBR is non-transferrable.  Buying influence means giving your money to an elected official with the expectation that your support will get you special treatment.  NBR eliminates those transactions.

Property wealth simply means more opportunity to benefit others with that property.  Property in and of itself has no value unless it’s highly desirable.  Even then, a person with a highly desirable property could sell it, but the NBR he requires doesn’t come to him, so selling property seems crazy. Value in property is created when it is used to make people and the planet better off.  So if your property is a cigarette manufacturing facility, well, you’re not likely to get richer with that.  The net benefit of creating cigarettes, is likely to be far too negative to make it worthwhile for people to work in the factory, for advertisers to tout such a product, and for stores to stock them.

The rich can’t lord their wealth over others and make them do their bidding by paying them a wage. That’s because no one’s income is dependent on any other person.  A rich person’s NBR, like yours or mine, is worthless to anyone else because it is non-transferrable.  What a rich person can do is create opportunities that may attract others wanting to be part of that opportunity. There will be lots of opportunities in Copiosis, far more than today.

The rich tend to be pretty bright people, too.  If they use their smarts to make people or the planet better off, and those solutions help a lot of people or benefit large portions of the planet, rich people can become richer.  Things they need—capital goods and labor—to make their ideas reality they don’t have to pay for, so it’s easier for them to make things happen in Copiosis.

Of course you, too, can become richer if you do something similar.  Things needed to make your ideas reality come at no cost to you, as well.  Both you and rich people just have to convince people that your idea is a good one, that it will benefit people or the planet, thereby generating NBR.  So in regard to getting rich in NBR terms, the Copiosis playing field is far more level than what we have today.

Some fear the consolidation of power.  No one can consolidate power in Copiosis. There is no power to consolidate massively enough to cause systemic damage.  Some fear hoarding of natural resources. That’s not possible in Copiosis. Even if one person could own all the resources, he still needs others to do something with them.  In Copiosis everyone is reacquainted with the age-old truth of humanity: We’re all in this together, and we all depend on one another for our wonderful lives.

That includes the rich.
