Metamodern Times


๐Ÿ˜Ž I bet, my dear friend, you quite often hear about all sorts of AI, Metaverses and NFTs here and there and you are a bit tired of that!

๐Ÿ˜จ You see behind silhouettes of dystopias like โ€œReady Player Oneโ€ or โ€œMatrixโ€, donโ€™t you?

๐Ÿง This is not a coincidence, because you and I, like these pictures, we are products of the profound deconstructive process of our society in the Postmodern era โ€ฆ

๐Ÿ˜… Easy, brother, weโ€™ll explain everything.

โ˜ฏ๏ธ If you havenโ€™t noticed yet, we live in a constant cultural confrontation.

๐Ÿง  And the goal of this confrontation is to control your mind.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ Naturally, we follow what we know and what we understand.

๐Ÿ” But what appears to you as your personal and independent opinion is in fact a thought product of the information environment in which you find yourself.

โ›ช Our ancestors, who lived in the era of Modernism, gradually began to move away from understanding the world around them through the central figure of God the Creator.

โš›๏ธ In His place comes Agnosticism with a scientific basis for perceiving the world and thank God to thatโ€ฆ

๐Ÿคญ Ooops.

๐Ÿ’ช Modernism is characterised by the idea that a human being is smart and capable enough for all the great accomplishments like dealing with nuclear energy and rocket launching.

โ˜ ๏ธ But instead of delivering cheap electricity and exploring space, weโ€™re launching nuclear bombs directly on the roofs of peaceful Japanese houses.

โ˜ฏ๏ธ In both cases science worked wonders.

๐Ÿ“ฃ At the same time, the information warfare continues.

๐Ÿ“ป The voices of war generals that once aired on the radio will remain indispensable attributes of an era in which tens of millions of people died. Shall we blame radio for this?

๐ŸŒ By the end of the World War II, weโ€™ve entered the Postmodernity era. During this period, humanity began to think about the self-destructiveness of its nature. We began to realize how much harm, consciously or unconsciously, we can bring to ourselves and the world around us.

๐ŸŽจ Works of art are filled with internal reflection and introspection of the negative traits of human nature:

๐Ÿ“š โ€œWeโ€ - Zamyatin, โ€œ1984โ€ - Orwell, โ€œFahrenheit 451โ€ - Bradbury and many others.

๐ŸŒ Our generation has grown up with the idea that a bleak, dystopian future for humanity is inevitable. A future in which a person literally becomes a battery (my regards to the Wachowski) in order to feed 0.0000000000000001% of the worldโ€™s population.

โ“ And now, my friend, I have a question for you:

๐Ÿš— Imagine that you are walking along the road and suddenly you see that a car is driving in the distance, heading in your direction. You are clearly aware that if you do not move, this car will hit you.

๐Ÿค” Would you continue to stand still? Perhaps you may even decide to go towards it until it knocks you down? Or would you bounce back from inevitable death?

โณ So what are you waiting for? If you are already busy saving the universe, then welcome to the club and please write us who are you and what exactly you are doing.

๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ If you do not know what to do and think that all this is useless, then please keep reading the article, I have almost finished.

๐Ÿ”„ If Postmodernism is a critique of the enthusiasm of the Modern era, then a new movement called Metamodernism is a critique of the cynicism, nihilism, and overzealous pessimism of the Postmodern era.

๐Ÿ’ก Metamodernism is when the desire to save the earth comes not only good inner nature, but also in order to no longer hear the hysterical cries of Greta Thumberg - the foster child of Klaus Schwab and the rest of the โ€œwokeโ€ party.

๐ŸŒŒ When you understand your insignificance in comparison with the infinite universe, but at the same time you understand that you are its integral and, as a result, the main part. As a participant in an online game.

๐ŸŽฎ The Metaverse is our new battlefield where the Metamodernism will be our flag.

๐Ÿ‘ฅ You, my dear friend, have a choice:

๐Ÿ’ญ Either you may put your life in the hands of fate in order to see where this fate takes you, and maybe in 50 years your descendants will rebel against the Facebook administrators because of the manifesto for the right to identity, but they will disconnect them from Horizon, afterwards your bloodline dies out for goodโ€ฆ

โœ… Or you subscribe to this channel, express your opinion in our chat and offer what you know how and love to do the most, and together we build our own OpenSource Metaverse DAO with blockchain and courtesans.

โ“ Donโ€™t know what you love or know how to do? Take an Ikigai test or something like that and come back here.

๐ŸŒˆ The future is where we all live, and there is enough space for everyone!

๐Ÿ˜’ Except naggersโ€ฆ Nobody likes naggers.

The Power of Collaboration: Why Working Together Is More Profitable Than Competing

๐Ÿ˜Ž My dear friends, in today's world, we often hear about the importance of competition and individual success. We are constantly bombarded with messages that tell us to be the best, to outshine others, and to always strive for individual greatness. But what if I told you that there is a better way?

๐Ÿค Imagine a world where instead of competing against each other, we work together as a team. A world where collaboration and cooperation are the keys to success. This may sound idealistic, but let me explain why it is not only beneficial but also more profitable.

โ˜ฏ๏ธ When we compete, we often focus solely on our own goals and achievements. We become blinded by the desire to be better than others, and in doing so, we miss out on the opportunities that collaboration brings. By working together, we can tap into the collective knowledge, skills, and resources of a team, which far surpasses what any individual can achieve alone.

๐ŸŒŸ Collaboration allows us to leverage the strengths of others and compensate for our own weaknesses. It fosters creativity, innovation, and out-of-the-box thinking. When we collaborate, we bring together diverse perspectives and ideas, leading to better problem-solving and decision-making.

๐Ÿ’ฐ From a business standpoint, working together as a team can be more profitable than competing against each other. When we collaborate, we pool our resources, share the workload, and reduce duplication of efforts. This leads to increased efficiency, cost savings, and ultimately, higher profits.

๐Ÿ† Moreover, collaboration creates a positive and supportive work environment. Instead of constantly trying to outdo each other, team members build strong relationships, trust, and camaraderie. This sense of unity and shared purpose boosts morale, motivation, and overall productivity.

๐ŸŒ In a world where the challenges we face are becoming increasingly complex and interconnected, collaboration is not only beneficial but essential. Whether it's addressing global issues like climate change, creating innovative solutions, or tackling business challenges, no single individual or organization can do it alone. We need to come together, share knowledge, and work towards common goals.

โœจ So, my friends, let us embrace the power of collaboration. Let us shift our mindset from competition to cooperation. Together, we can achieve far more than we ever could as individuals. Let us build a future where working together is not only profitable but also the norm.

๐Ÿค Remember, there is strength in unity, and together, we can create a world that is not only prosperous but also harmonious. Collaboration is not just a buzzword; it is a fundamental principle that can transform our lives, our businesses, and our society.

๐Ÿ’ก Imagine the possibilities when we combine our skills, knowledge, and resources. We can tackle grand challenges, create groundbreaking innovations, and achieve extraordinary results. By working together, we can unlock our full potential and make a lasting impact on the world around us.

๐ŸŒŸ Collaboration is not about diminishing individual success; it is about amplifying it. When we collaborate, we create a rising tide that lifts all boats. By supporting and empowering each other, we create an environment where everyone can thrive and succeed.

๐ŸŒ Let us look to history for inspiration. Many of the greatest achievements in human history were the result of collaboration. Think of the moon landing, the development of life-saving medicines, or the creation of transformative technologies. All of these breakthroughs were made possible because individuals and teams came together, shared their expertise, and worked towards a common goal.

๐Ÿš€ The challenges we face today, whether they are social, economic, or environmental, require collective action. By embracing collaboration, we can find innovative solutions, drive positive change, and build a brighter future for generations to come.

๐Ÿค” So, my dear friends, let us ask ourselves: Why compete when we can collaborate? Why limit our potential when we can achieve so much more together? Let us set aside our differences, break down silos, and foster a culture of collaboration in every aspect of our lives.

๐ŸŒˆ The power of collaboration knows no bounds. It transcends borders, industries, and disciplines. It is a force that can transform not only our businesses but also our communities and the world at large.

โœ… So, I invite you to join me on this journey of collaboration. Let us work together, support each other, and create a future where the power of collaboration is realized, and the benefits are shared by all.
