Since some people were asking about Game Stop stock memes:

This is not financial advice for legal reasons.

Hedge fund Melvin Capital owns shorts of Game Stop stock.

It’s complicated, but shorts are basically lending stock to sell back at a lower price to profit at a difference.

You lend someone a Starbucks coffee at $5, and they hold that coffee, then sell it back to you for $4 once the price drops, and they pocket the $1 difference. Well, now the price of coffee is like $500, and they will lose $496 dollars.

Since they can’t profit if the…

The history of the world is marked by epistemological eras. Modernism was a construction of a meta-narrative. A meta-narrative is the consensus of the world, its objective truth in the world-level, whether or not it truly is objective in reality or God-level. Postmodernism is a rejection of the meta-narrative, a deconstruction. Metamodernism is a reconstruction, the era after postmodernism.

From postmodernism and metamodernism we see the rise of the post-left. Post-left are those that criticize the traditional left for their compromises with the system. It seeks to deconstruct the left. The…

Here’s the true story when I finally knew my weight was out of control.

“I can’t remember how I got here,” I remember telling the doctor when I woke up. My husband sat in the corner of the hospital room looking worried, and there was a soap opera playing muted on the TV.

What happened to me? The last thing I remember was packing the children’s lunches, and then … nothing. The bright lights in the room began to hurt my eyes. How long have I been out for? I must have been out of it, because I didn’t even notice the doctor standing at the foot of my bed.

“You had a heart…

(Excerpt from the following book, Passive Income Strategy In A Week)

Why You Should NOT Get Into Passive Income

Passive income often does not mean you will get rich. It does mean once you understand how and apply it, it will snowball over a period of time, and you can start having extra money or be paying off some bills here and there.

Taxes are far more complicated once you get past $600. You will also have to set aside at least 15% per month for it. You can use deductions to mitigate that, but it is still a pain.

It usually takes a long time to gain…

No.

You can just have word of mouth. You can just have listings on selling websites Amazon and eBay or what have you. You can just have your business info in a directory. You can just have social media pages. You can just have sales funnels. (Though, admittedly, the last ones are forms of websites.) They do work for people. Sometimes, they are far easier to maintain.

If your business is working for you without a website, great!

Here are alternatives to websites:

Social Media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, TikTok

Sales Funnels: Clickfunnels, Groovefunnels

Directory and Review Sites: Yelp, Google…

I’ve been developing this thought quite a bit, and hinted it here before, but this my assertion:

There is no distinction between the spiritual and other categories of immaterial (words, abstraction, math, logic, laws, but not limited to those)

Or to put it in another way:

The same stuff that makes words, abstraction, math, logic, laws, etc. immaterial is the same stuff spirit is made out of.

Or to put it in another way:

Spirit = words, abstraction, math, logic, laws

What about where spirit seems to interact with physical?

Well, all physical stuff have an abstract structure, so a…

I thought I was the only one, but my Facebook feed and online conversations has started to drift towards this subtle phenomenon during the COVID-19 lockdown: people starting to have weird dreams.

I had a dream that China nuked us, us meaning the US, and we went into a real lockdown with a nuclear winter and the military roaming the streets. I relayed this on a chat and many people responded with their recent weird dreams.

Over the weeks, threads from friends have popped up asking if they had weird dreams recently. …
