Sometimes at night I step outside to get some fresh air and look up to the stars–to take in the big picture. Here’s a link to a visual meditation about this.
This is tuesday September 13, ethereum will transition from proof of work to proof of stake in a day or so.
Why is it important? It’s been a talking point of evolution for the ethereum blockchain since it’s beginnings in July 2015. What it does is change how new blocks are chosen, moving from proof of work (lots of computers using a lot of electricity), to proof of stake (basically a lottery from stake holders). It saves a lot of electricity.
Bitcoin (the largest cryptocurrency) also runs on proof of work, but there are no current plans to migrate it to proof of stake.
Cryptocurrency is a financial and technological product (fintech). Money goes everywhere! And now technology is developing means for working with money, in terms of crypto tech. It will disrupt traditional finance like the internet is disrupting newspapers for instance.

The message of the book Prior Unity is that the impulse to peaceful, cooperative coexistence is humanity’s “true north.” The impulse comes from our root-intelligence as one single species, and, at the same time, reflects the inherent unity of all life.
Read excerpts from Prior Unity here:
“It is now time for humankind-as-a-whole—everybody-all-at-once—to assume integral responsibility for the human species on Earth. This is really the first time in all of human history that humankind has even been in the position to consider this. Simultaneously, humankind is in the position of having no choice but to deal with it.”
