Solutions for Humanity - Creating Cooperation Through Applying Opportunity Cost Equally to Positive & Negative Circumstances

Category: 

This is one of many upcoming blog posts which will analyze how the human mind works and why. Upon trying to establish various cooperative efforts, I have run into many road blocks.  The road blocks are not coming from the ideas, they are coming from the people that are unwilling to accept or apply these ideas.  Identifying WTF was wrong with these people (who had solutions to their problems lying in front of their face, yet they chose not to apply them) has become one of my primary focuses.  I would rather avoid analyzing these problems, but I feel that they are far too wide spread to be ignored.  If humanity at large does not get over these weaknesses, then our true potential will be greatly limited.  So I went from dis-belief, to anger, to ignoring them, to now accepting that the only solution is to change them.  Without changing them, these people will hold back our rate of progression.  Not only this, but these people can be mentally toxic to those who are trying to create positive solutions, so providing leaders with the toolds that they need to deal with negative mindsets will help them create better & more efficient communities to grow their ideas through.

It is best to approach problems with positive solutions.  Instead of analyzing the problems, designing a solution is much better.  Though solutions are not always prevalent.  In order for solutions to come about in some situations, the problems must be actively avoided.  The solution is in avoiding the problems.  In these cases, it can become very hard to provide workable solutions, because the majority of people actively avoid dealing with their own or others problems.  Many people I know, as a matter of fact, will not even admit to "doing something wrong" in the present or the past (so what hope is there for the future?).  I believe that nothing is 100% correct in the universe, and therefore you must take the most probable solution as the official solution (until a better alternative appears).  Opportunity cost (& an acknowledgement of the limitations of the human mind) is the basis for this reasoning. 

Wikipedia - Opportunity cost is the cost of any activity measured in terms of the best alternative forgone. It is the sacrifice related to the second best choice available to someone who has picked among several mutually exclusive choices.[1] It is a key concept in economics. It has been described as expressing "the basic relationship between scarcity and choice."[2] The notion of opportunity cost plays a crucial part in ensuring that scarce resources are used efficiently.[3] Thus, opportunity costs are not restricted to monetary or financial costs: the real cost of output forgone, lost time, pleasure or any other benefit that provides utility should also be considered opportunity costs.

Wikipedia - trade-off (or tradeoff) is a situation that involves losing one quality or aspect of something in return for gaining another quality or aspect. It implies a decision to be made with full comprehension of both the upside and downside of a particular choice. In economics the term is expressed as opportunity cost, referring to the most preferred alternative given up

While Opportunity Cost generally refers to economic activities, I feel that it has a much better logical use of language than trade-off.  Opportunity Cost imples that there is 1) opportunity & 2) costs (gain or loss) in subsitution.  Trade-off implies substitution via swapping resulting in costs (net loss/gain).  Opportunity Cost, along with a logical view of the universe, implies that there are always opportunities to which the potential costs (loss/gain) of application must be applied, and that the best opportunity should be pursued as to maximize gains (while minimizing losses).  Trade-off does not imply that there are always better opportunities which should be pursued, rather it just shows that there are substitutions of different value.  It does not stress the importance of this "value" enough by exposing that by forgoing a better alternative solution you are turning your current solution into one with negative value (net loss compared to ideal).  Most importantly, when you apply symbolic logic to philosphy and self-organizing energy production structures, you get a very mathematical approach to reasoning that is much more akin to free-market economic theory (unrestricted transactions/ communications between individuals).  Therefore I will be using Opportunity Cost in all of my explanations instead of trade-off.

Knowing that everything you are currently doing is potentially wrong, opens up the ability for you to accept new conclusions and doing so allows your mind to expand along with your understanding of life.  Constantly re-working your thought process to better align with the natural world will only help you.  If your mind is unstable, and you are unwilling to accept life altering solutions, then perhaps your "energy" was only meant to be temporary (human lifespan) and not infinite.  Everyone has the potential to achieve enlightenment, but they must let go of everything that they hold closely.  Nothing is as it seems.

Dealing with people whom seem to fight mind expansion "like it was the devil," has caused me to develop solutions to identifying these individuals, tearing down these individuals, re-building these individuals and then logically guiding them to universal greatness.  The universal greatness part is still TBD, since life as we know it is currently severely restricted in terms of our true potentials.  So for now identification, tearing down, and re-building will be my primary focus.  Be the change that you want to see & lead through example.  Though when people are ready, they will be able to create great life-altering solutions through large-scale cooperative efforts.  The day when more people are truly ready to work together to find expansive solutions for humanity is coming, and by putting your productive efforts into 1) converting more people into logical mindsets & 2) establishing networked information systems for them to cooperate through, you can help ensure that this day comes sooner!
