Your government loves "our people"

You wake up in the morning and discover this letter in your box:

"Hi David. Just to let you know that a new 5G aerial is being installed on your property at 3am tomorrow morning. Two days later, because this council owned pole is on your property, it will have 4G, 3G and any other aerial that your government feels is beneficial installed on the pole. The fact that you have a government owned electricity pole and perhaps a Telkom pole carrying a Telkom cable on your property means that your government has the right to not only install cables on your property, but also to install ANY type of Wifi device on your property. And if you normally switch off your house wifi at night to minimise electrical interference, don't worry, because the pole outside your house will be transmitting and receiving 24 hours a day. Thanks for your loyal vote. We appreciate it. Regards, Your Government."

I put this in quotes, because how would you feel if you woke up tomorrow morning and found this letter in your post box?

How to survive and thrive in a world without work

I wrote a book about how survive and thrive in a world without work, where automation and machine learning and artificial intelligence and fuzzy logic take over.

The book is the result of 21 years of R&D and millions invested and over 20,000 hours invested. If a large strategy consultancy had done this work it would have cost about R130 million (US$7.5 million).

I thought it might take us another 15 years to get there. Little did I know that it would take six months and that it has already happened according to the NY Times "About 30 million American workers — one out of every five — are collecting jobless benefits."

My book is here: It is only R30 (US$1.73) until the end of July, after which it will be R60 (US$3.45). I have priced it for wide dissemination among the middle class who are suffering the most at the moment and who can "fix" this if they (we) wish. We cannot rely on the people and systems who got us into this mess and who want to "get back to normal." There is a new normal at the moment. We must grab it and accept it and work with it.

Dear Bill Gates

Dear Bill

Whilst you’ve been building businesses and looking at the next 5 years, others have been looking at the next 100 and 1000 years. No blame. Just let’s get on with it and stop being PC and say it as it is.

I did a part time Executive MBA at Cranfield in the UK in 1991 / 1992 and I knew something was wrong, and in 1999, I invented a new retirement paradigm (Note that I define retirement differently to other people), which morphed into a way to survive a world without work, ie the fourth industrial revolution, a world of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning), and now that Covid19 has finally arrived to teach humanity to realise the mistake that most of us have been making for the past 500 years, and wake us up, to the possibility of infinity and real abundance on earth, I realise that I’m here at exactly the right time. I’ve been praying (and talking and writing) for over 20 years that Office Workers will work from home with all the associated environmental (external and internal) benefits this brings. I didn’t know that God (Mother Nature if you like) would provide Covid19, but it has quickly shown that we can work from home. It has closed conference centres, hopefully forever. Conferences are online where they should be and I can attend conferences anywhere in the world without leaving my house! And hopefully business travel will cease except for building and fixing machines and other hands on requirements. People should only be able to travel to visit family and for sport. And schools can close, but schooling can continue.

We cannot rely on the people and the systems which got us into this mess, which includes the big think tanks, strategy consultancies, WEF, (old fashioned) accountants, economists, etc. What we need to do is “sell" a new system and the first real paradigm shift in 500 years since Enclosure started, to bring the world out of its crises whilst at the same time “fixing" the world (as best we can). At some point I realised that working outside the McKinseys and Bains of this world means that I stayed away from dogma, which I don’t have and which I’ve steered clear of, allowing me to learn and understand history and ancient wisdom and realise how it can be applied to the modern world.

Since 1999, I been doing R&D and understanding what’s possible in a world without work, and my User Manual for Life on Earth is a result of this. See https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/1029328  It is only $345 and at the moment it is on Smashwords with a 25% opening special discount. A really inexpensive way to save the world and bring it into an entirely new age.

Happy to discuss and find a way forward. Please let me know if you are interested in continuing this discussion?

Regards
David

Review by Dorian Glass:

"David is uniquely skilled at making the age-old Torah accessible to all. His very up-front, candid skill at translating an essentially symbolic and anecdotal tome into something that is immediately usable and relevant to today’s society is awe-inspiring. This book by David is critical to maintain the relevance of this holy wisdom in today’s modern, crazed world; something the world desperately needs. David, thus, takes us backwards, in order to go forwards, skilfully connecting our spiritual history & direction with today’s fast-paced, modern world. All the answers are in the Torah; David gives them to us in a language one can relate to and understand.


"David’s acute skill in creating “The Torah as an Enlightenment Toolkit” enables society to re-ground themselves in an age-old, G_d-given wisdom. This effectively, and expertly, replaces today’s societal lack of moral understanding with guidance that is solid, clear and usable by anyone. His skill at delivering this unique expertise is firmly encapsulated in his hard-hitting, energetic and explanatory skills that do not offend. Rather, his method immediately draws one in like a magnet to the unique, magical and critical messages offered by the Torah. David skilfully reinvents the Torah for the modern world at large."

Coronavirus : it's time for us to start taking an active part in healing our world

Dear friends

I think we should be aware of Corona Virus, especially for any group events we do, but we shouldn’t let it distract us from our mission(s) and we must not let fear override our common sense.

Of course we must take precautions, but we mustn’t shut down our lives.

There are energetic ways to protect ourselves as well as opportunities to boost our immune systems.

For example we can use this time to stay away from sugar and starch (sugar) and perhaps take up intermittent fasting and stay away from fast foods.

We have an opportunity to use Corona as a catalyst to change the way we think. And especially to get others to change the way they think.

We have an opportunity to investigate how short our lives are and how much work we still need to do.

Let’s take these opportunities without being fearful and with the knowledge that whatever happens we have taken the right path, thought the right thoughts, eaten the right food, and as best we can, shared our world with each other.

Here’s to our health and the health of our planet.

Love
David

Ancient Teachings

Genesis 1, 28 says that we should "go forth and multiply, and replenish the earth." Not all Bibles have this "replenish the earth" in them, but this is a direct translation from the Hebrew and is in my Bible. We cannot simply take and take. When nature decides that she has had enough, we will be given a lesson. We are also told that the "sins of the fathers will be on the children to the fourth generation" (Deuteronomy 5, 9). Four generations are about 100 years. This sentence means that we should consider 100 years time in all our decision making. The warnings are in our most ancient teachings. It's about time we heeded them.
