[ 12/November/21 ]

Be as responsible and cooperative as you can. And do so with awareness, there can be cheats out there that will exploit naïve cooperation, be alert, and be as cooperative as possible.

If something seems wrong, look deeply within yourself before looking outward to others.

Accept that mistakes must happen when dealing with novelty, and try not to make the same one too often, and cut others a bit of slack when they make some.

Accept the fact from the depths of evolutionary biology that all levels of complexity are built on new levels of cooperation, and that any level of competition that does not respect that fact is dangerous.

Accept that many aspects of reality are going to be more complex than you are capable of understanding at present, and be open to any particular one in fact being that way – even if it has behaved entirely predictably up until this point (something may have changed such that it no longer follows that pattern).

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
