2022.01.22 11:53 alivealways The Bottleneck of Existence
a thought i had flying home from my best friends beautiful wedding
Sitting above it all gives perspective. You get the space to appreciate the work and thought that went into creating a vehicle that can take us thousands of miles in disproportionately short periods of time for the first time in history. We take for granted the purpose that those who create have. Every curved piece of metal that makes the fin on top of an engine is measured precisely and exactly, and for only one cause.
The people who decided those measurements dedicated the vast majority of their lives to figuring that out. While they may have chose that path because it is profitable, our society is structured (even through its problems) to make it profitable to do things that will advance and strengthen the human race.
For too long in my life, and in the lives of so many, the purpose of it all has been and us being ignored or taken for granted. It’s not a decision to take purpose for granted, it’s not a sin. To be oblivious to what you don’t know is not the same as turning a blind eye to what you know to be wrong. Which in this case would be taking your own life as seriously as the person who creates the things we use to live. At this level, you can see that it is not as vague to see what is being oblivious and what is ignoring the truth. In your life, my life, our lives… we make decisions every day. Some of those decisions we stand by, some of them we are unsure of, and some of them we know to be wrong. If you look at it like a scale, from certainly the right decision to uncertain then to certainly the wrong decision, then the more this ratio is skewed to the side of certainly wrong, the less likely we are to do anything in our life that is certainly right.
I smoke e-cigarettes and weed, I drink too much. I waste time doing things that I don’t care about when I would rather be doing things that I care about. But I do things that I don’t care about, almost in procrastination or in spite of myself. I know these things to be certainly wrong. Yet I continue to do them and it gives me anxiety, then I use them as crutches to cope with the anxiety it causes.
From thousands of feet in the air you can see yourself in everything. Everything is a testament of your work ethic and ability to stick to your values. Every thing is a judge of your moral code, an idol and an ideal. While an ideal can never be met, it can be the judge and the goal. From up here you can see the beauty of the endless mountain ranges covered in snow, made by billions of years of a rock in space rearranging itself around a molten core. You can tell that they are wrinkles in time, that their height and breadth is a marker of history. Their mass and power is humbling, their vastness is treturous. Stunningly white for miles, split by communities of people who have decided long ago that their valley was worth building on. Pristine but terribly daunting, to find yourself alone in a snowy mountain without tools or company is almost certainly death. To be unprepared to handle yourself in nature is to sell yourself short. You could know more. You could do better, you could learn more and try harder.
To do one thing right is the first step in the right direction. To master one thing is master everything. Mastery is the product of perfect alignment. You in alignment with who you want to be. If you are doing little things every day that you know aren’t in alignment with who you want to be, you will never be who you want to be. You cannot be anyone other than who you are right now and it is naive to put trust into the future. The only thing you can trust is the confidence in each and every decision you make. Is it closer to certainly right or certainly wrong?
I am the bottleneck of evolution. Anyone who realizes that is. All of history, all of existence from square one. Your parents, their families, their ancestors, the animals they evolved from, the organisms they evolved from, the perfect conditions for life to thrive and the magical particles that exploded out of nothing at the beginning of time. That is all you. And me. From something infinitesimally small and infinitely massive we arose. From one tiny point in time, we have arrived here. Welcome to reality. You could be a cat and you wouldn’t even know it. But you got lucky. You’re a human and you do know it. And you know what humans are capable of because you are flying far above the uncrossable mountains below in a vehicle that is the product of the first tool that our ancestor used. The product of chance, chance taken and shaped to purpose. Purpose to do the most that you can because you only have one chance.
So now you’re here. Here knowing that you have the most incredible opportunity in the history of know existence. You have the opportunity to prove yourself worthy of getting that chance. To make sure that you aren’t the weak link in the chain that natural selection will easily and without a second thought remove from the chain. To assume that your chance is what makes you worthy is the bane of all existence. To depend on others for you to be able to live is the heart of all of the problems that our within our control. To hide from decisions because they are hard is what leads to tyrannical governments and the horrible things we saw in the 20th century and all throughout history. We don’t know a thing bout consciousness but we know that it’s the product of hard work and evolution. And the self-realization of being conscious is what drives us to learn more. It’s what makes us curious to the core, to the point that the point of life becomes to understand why. Why are we conscious? What is out there? To know the full story would be to know the mind of god. And whatever that god is to you, you are a cell in it. And we all want to be more like it. That’s why we love beauty, from perfect circles in nature to elaborate stores that put super computers in the pocket of every human walking around on the street. Access to all of known information in your pocket and at your request.
This has been the goal. To be more like god, to know god, to know it’s intentions and reasons. To peak behind the curtain. And we all think that we have to name our cause for that goal, but that goal is the cause and it needs no definition because the search is the reason. You do as much beautiful stuff as you can, you take care of yourself the best you can and make sure that you are always living up to your potential, and that every decision you make is in alignment with that. That you fight the lazy slug that wants to do the seven deadly sins, that rationalizes to you that it’s okay to do them because you are only human. But that is a toxic voice predicated on what we’re trying to evolve away from. That you aspire to please your higher self, the one that is proud when you’re responsible. When you read or go to the gym. When you have a routine that makes you feel smart and strong, when you decide not to drink because you don’t want to tarnish your mind and body. Your higher self is the one that wants to please god, and it is a part of god, so you could say that you are then, a part of god. And you have a part of you that has been tamed over the millinia but that is still shaking the bars if it’s cell. That whispers from the depths of the darkest places in your mind and body. That tells you that your instant gratification is the most important thing. That doesn’t even think about the version of you that exists in 10 years because the version of you that is right now would feel a rush of pleasure to do it right now. I guess that could be satan, if we’re trying to relate to biblical creation.
I’m not religious, not specific to a religion. I believe there is something, some creator, some reason, and some judgement. I think that all of the creation books are trying to explain that you should fucking get your shit together and that you should listen to the God in your Mind and not the Devil in your Head. It’s that simple and these books are just trying to explain it in different ways. And they end up creating what’s even worse than what they were trying to avoid. People identifying with one explanation and associating their ego with the status of the explanation of reality that gives them the most ease at the thought of death. Each of the creation stories preaches love and discipline. Then people misunderstand, and enforce. Then there are problems. But because these are the oldest stories we have, they are worth reading and thinking about. But reading to learn what people are trying to explain when they write them. They are pretty vague and i think their status over the last few thousand of years proves their value of a worthy attempt to explain why you are here and what you should do. I think that level of respect, of trust in word, makes its own point. People know they should be doing better than they are and they let their weakness and fear control them. No one would go to church if they were doing perfectly. You go to get better at living life. Then, when people cannot control their selfish urges, maybe they blame the religion. Maybe they blame religion in general and think that they should be as chaotic as possible in spite of the ideal life. Because they are offended by the idea that they don’t have their shit together and that they should probably get it together. Hence, forgiveness. It’s never too late to get your shit together, aka it’s never too late to accept jesus christ as your lord and savior. yes we had to make names and stories to say that because what i have written here may be to harsh to be heard well in the main stream.
The main stream of consciousness that we share on our phones. What we decide is important. Right now, it’s pictures of our friends and family, sexy people, relatable and interesting music, motivation, etc. We’re headed in a good direction, beauty is what people want. We want motivation, we want to be sexy (which is only sexy because it’s hard to attain and usually healthy to be, aka that person has discipline, good genetics, and good traits, let me reproduce.) we want to create more things that are beautiful. Why? Because beauty is respect. It’s hard, it takes discipline, knowledge, time. It is earned through dedication, and is the highest power. Life is beautiful, but there is a chance that it can be absolutely awful for everyone able to experience that. And as long as we are not in the pursuit of beauty as a whole, together, we are wrong.
This is the bottleneck of existence. Stop bullshitting, stop blaming. Take responsibility for yourself, learn as much as you can about anything, and put that knowledge to work by creating something beautiful to share with your fellow humans, because we are all in this together forever and we have been for 15 billion years. You are a star, you are made of star dust. Literally. And you will be a star again and that cycle will repeat until the heat death of the universe but in that time you better do every fucking thing you can to make yourself the absolute best you can be. Because otherwise it’s a waste. Get up when the sun tells you too, go to sleep when you’re done with what you have to do. Don’t waste time and don’t be bullshitting yourself. Make a goal, make a plan, make a schedule and a routine and make sure that you are spending the most amount of time on improving your knowledge and skills because some day you will have to use them, to create your masterpiece whatever that may be. And you will present it to yourself at your deathbed and if you don’t like it, you will regret not working harder. Go.

2022.01.22 11:53 Dwez1337 If we Criticize Banks for Stealing from the Poor with Overdraft-Fees and Inflation, We also should Criticize Celebrities and Billionaires Stealing from the Unaware and Poor by promoting Shitcoins and cash-grab NFTs
Rich celebrities or billionaires promoting their cash grab NFT collections or scam shitcoins are contrary to the values of Crypto
Since when are already rich celebrities and billionaires who promote cash grab NFT collections to their often unaware community something we should accept?
If we criticize banks for stealing from the poor with inflation and overdraft fees, we should also criticize celebrities scamming their financial unaware community.
Often the people falling for these promoted scams are the most financially desperate, hoping to escape their debt or bad situation by investing into these promoted scams.
If we criticize banks for taking money from the unaware and poor, we should apply the same values to celebrities and billionaires doing exactly the same, even if they abuse Crypto to do it.

2022.01.22 11:53 messappthrowaway 800+ credit score paying off balance in full, time for a better card?
I'm at a place where I've reached CC zero and with timely payments always above the minimum I've breached 800+ score and am fully paid off at the moment, with the intent of continuing to pay in full every month.
Am I pissing away potential rewards staying on the entry level (literally first I've ever had) card I've been on for 10+ years? I pay no annual fee and it's a bog-standard 19.99% (irrelevant if paying down in full continues) and i earn a point per every $2 spent.
Each point seems to equal $0.01 (ie. $50 cash back), so if my math is right... that's equivalent to a measly 0.5% cashback ratio.
Would I be better off getting a half decent no-annual-fee cashback card like a Neo ("minimum 1%, partner business average 5%") and reinvesting that cashback rather than just having it accumulate points at a dismal rate (and frankly lose value due to inflation) [specific card is just an example, I'll be researching this better] Or, for that matter, running the numbers on my spending and finding a breakeven for a card with an annual fee and even better benefits?
Also a bonus question. Any experiences with the crypto.com prepaid Ruby level cards? Thinking of plonking down the $500 stake just to start saving on Spotify monthly and mayyyyybe earn a few bucks riding out this crypto downturn, not really to use for much else. (I know this is not a true credit card.)
