An idea worth spreading

«You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete» – Buckminster Fuller

I'm passionate about

1 Improving society to reach the lowest ecological footprint possible
2 by improving technology to reach its highest potential to the advantage of all sentient life
3 thus celebrating our existence

Talk to me about

Philosophy, technology, society, biomimicry, ecology, psychology, music technology, moral/ethics and anything else that I might find interesting.

People don't know I'm good at

- Evaluating the integrity, credibility and sensibility of a philosophy/belief system
- Finding everyday happiness through both fascination and acceptance of reality
- Analyzing art objectively

My TED story

- I first discovered TED through their application in uTorrent
- I've seen most TED talks, some I've seen many times
- I'm now translating TED talks to norwegian for starters

If we were to build a new society from scratch, how can we find the best designs to do so - and what are they?
As much as I personally despise the Bible, the passages you have chosen reflects something I call "Constructive Selv Conservation", which is crucial to understand in any truly civilized society. Constructive selv conservation is about investing in your surroundings and fellow sentient beings, in order to be regarded as a resource and therefore become externally conserved. If you help others, others help you.
