Excess evidence

I may address this in more detail further along (under "expenditure represents value"), but it's important to also appreciate what your excess says about you. I give it as my opinion that how you spend your excess says more about your values/priorities than how you spend your function's resources. Whatever you categorise as 'function' by...

Gratification’s indifference

Now picture Y overlapping X. Let's say the resources required to maintain X fall within X (function) and everything else is excess. Financially, as an example, you may only require 85% of your income to maintain your lifestyle/sanity/capabilities etc. This is your function. Whatever you have access to that is over this amount is your... Continue Reading →

Gratification’s dysfunction

Imagine a metaphorical circle around your person that is indicative of the extent of your present capabilities. Your influence, reach, talents, resources, the lot. It's summerised as X and symbolically represented as the green circle below. When you edify your hunger, X increases, when you gratify your hunger, X decreases. Picture another, larger circle, next to... Continue Reading →

What if there was an enhanced state... Continue Reading →

The entirety of all of our resources in life, at any given point in time, can be separated into two categories, Function and Excess. Function represents the portion of resources required for us to continue 'functioning' as we now do; excess represents any resources that are leftover after that. Using this image as a symbolic example, the white...

We gratify by default

As already discussed, to gratify is filterless. It involves consuming with no regard to long-term consequences while prioritising hunger-removal above all else. Just like water down a mountain, filterless consumption follows the path of least resistance. It's about the easiest, quickest and cheapest approach to dealing with a hunger. This means it's also the most commonly chosen outcome... Continue Reading →

Is our worth changeable?

Controversial topic warning: When speaking about this recently a number of people involved were quite offended and became both defensive and hostile. It's very easy to see why because without full context and patient perspective it easily sounds like one is trying to say "some people are worthless". In short: we can become so. However, those...
