Risk

Risk is the possibility of pain of one flavour or another. Each event has a face, and you evaluate these events by comparing them to an average face or average event, and deviation from this form or face registers as stress.

What about the real selves? Ah, the real selves. I’m about to go into that. Events are responsive entities, and because of the split between the perceived self and the actual self, events beings respond in ways that we might… Seek More

Failure Event

We do need to consider risk for the same reason we need to demonstrate empathy, because in the end it’s not about who wins or loses, but how the game was played. You don’t kick the ball to a member… Seek More

Get Ahead

The really successful don’t know any risks. They don’t perceive them. They just do stuff that amazes people. They perceive ways, and they are also notoriously charismatic because they perceive possibilities in people, too. These geniuses of creativity are what… Seek More
