The Zeitgeist Movement and the Intelligence Explosion

The Zeitgeist Movement and the Intelligence Explosion

To me, the Zeitgeist Movement is about promoting low entropy, rationality, cooperation, freedom, equality, sustainability, unity and about decreasing existential risks for humanity - and ultimately about implementing a new socioeconomic system based on those virtues, and thus based on what is reasonable from a technological and ecological - not a monetary - point of view.

'The First Christmas' campaign is a global project for The Zeitgeist Movement in an attempt to hijack the consumption festival known as ‘Christmas’ via Facebook, and turn it into what it has so far only claimed to be about: Giving to those less fortunate than you.

My Proposal for an RBE Game

My Proposal for an RBE Game

I've been working for a while on this concept in my head.

After searching for other such proposals on the web for me to join in and share ideas, and being disappointed by what I found, I decided to start working on my own proposal from scratch.

Waiting for the Mushroom Cloud

Waiting for the Mushroom Cloud

As an activist doing outreach with the Zeitgeist Movement, I often come across those individuals who believe that the human race is simply incorrigible. The message gets communicated in such responses as, “I’m just waiting for the mushroom cloud,” or “All humans are psychotic,” or “Humans are a virus that needs to be eradicated.” These are actual statements that have been told to me, as if they are the cold hard truth that I must come 'round to submitting to.

10.000 Faces For Peace

Show your face for peace and war will lose its face.

It’s time to stand up and show face, for an end of this disastrous spectacle of power and money in the world, at the cost of people and for peace on earth for everybody.

The friendly way

The friendly way

I've been watching the Zeitgeist movement for quite a while now and I am wondering about one thing: Why haven't we already left the market and created the new society?

I've found some attempts to get things going, but most of them were either just for self supply or hobby projects. The new cooperative society which is required to maintain the high-tech resource based economy still seems to be missing. So why isn't this great idea already causing a world-wide transition?

Let's look at the requirements for the new economy:

From Basic Income to Resource Based Economy

From Basic Income to Resource Based Economy

It has been a while since I saw this video for the first time and since then, I keep thinking about all the implications of such a simple solution. I have examined our banking system, our taxes, some reform proposals, local exchange trading systems (LETS – e.g. RiverHOURS or Fourth Corner Exchange) and came to a conclusion that the real problem is in income-distribution and money-flow.

Entertainment, education and structural design in one

Entertainment, education and structural design in one

The collective time used for playing different kinds of computer games has already reached millions of years. This is a huge, nearly unutilized resource of human problem-solving capabilities. Gamers are not educating themselves in how the world works or doing anything very productive in terms of the infrastructure. I seek to channel time used in games to design structures.
