  1. I've been reading and listening to countless stories of peoples' experiences on Ayahuasca and DMT for years now, I hope to try it for myself one day. I have experimented with mushrooms and LSD years ago though but I'm sure the experience is very different. If psychedelics gives one this marvelous sensory-overload experience and possible insight(s) into...well this experience we call life, then meditation does the same thing but in the opposite direction via the direct experience of nothingness (sounds cold and bad, but it's actually blissful). I cannot speak for others, but it is within those depths of meditation that I experience the stream of consciousness as a passive witness, and have come to think that 'the perception of free will is an illusion'. That thought didn't come from me, it came to me. From where? I don't know (we can say that about all thoughts) but that's a discussion for another time and perhaps another forum.
  2. Great read JC. I've been a fan ever since I discovered your work a few months ago. I think whatever advancements / breakthroughs that may come from technology, the same old struggle between light and dark will exist. The battle will manifest in different shapes and forms, but nonetheless, it will be the same Ancient War. However, this battle is perhaps essential to the nature of 'being'; since there can be no light without darkness, and no darkness without light. Underneath duality and opposition, secretly lies a profound unity. A few questions for you JC.... -How many times have you done Ayahuasca? Have you tried DMT? -Do you practice meditation? If yes, what tradition? -Do you think 'Free Will' is an illusion?

    Buffett and Munger

    Unfortunately for Munger, the passage of father time has evolved his wisdom to sound like it came from a baby's brain.
  4. Great stuff thank you! So in other words, if i'm not mistaken, the better comparison would be between Lightning and Ripple's PayChan (which is off ledger and can scale 50,000+ tps). Cobalt sounds very promising!
  5. You spoke about Lightning which is currently still under development (if i'm not mistaken), why not talk about Cobalt? I ask cuz I value your opinion.
  6. @Graine, what are your thoughts on Cobalt and its implications for XRP. And how does it stack up with Lighting? thanks in advance.
  7. I asked @galgitron the same question on twitter, and here's his response:
  8. surprised that this hasn't gotten more attention! very informative. Thanks for sharing! got a question: if large trade orders from whales occur behind the scenes via OTC for the purpose of not dramatically affecting the price (either way), then ultimately, how does the impending tidal wave of institutional demand / money drive the price up on retail exchanges? Is it because these OTC exchanges source their token supply from retail exchanges?
  9. great to see. Bitibank must be feeling the SBI VC heat, stepping up its game in advance.
