and I share my meditations ...

The value of stillness

Silence is golden …

My first thought - generating energy with movements - thinking energy as currency

With dancing, with fitness with motion …

But somehow that didn't convince me as basis for a currency system

What is valuable, what is precious, what has value today ... ?

We live in an incredible abundance - extremely badly distributed - but in reality there are too much of everything .... except stillness and silence.

What would be a monetary system based on stillness?

You generate wealth by staying absolutely still, you earn your fortune by keeping really quiet:

The value of Stillness.

A software could perceive that. A Blockchain encrypted code.

You can than keeping still as long as you want … or as long your Body allow it.

It will be naturally regulated by the demands of the body.

This is my thought, an economy based not on the dollar but on stillness.

Code: stillness_OpticalFlow

Run this code in P3

"Speech is silver, silence is golden" 

Thomas Carlyle quoting the proverb 1836, originated in Arabic culture.

To listen:

The Tremeloes - Silence is golden

I am very sorry that I could not attend the zoom today.

I'm at a Hackathon and I didn't have a chance to take a break to attend the zoom ... is it possible to get it back? Is it possible to see the recorded video?

Hi allÑ

Yeah! @Victor E Morales

That's what I was thinking! It reminds me of my explorations with LifeForms. I do still have some of the files but wouldn't know how to use them. That will be great!

Comment by Victor E Morales on October 8, 2021 at 11:42am

I was thinking that maybe for the future of MotionDao we could explore NFTs as short MOCAP captures of different dancers, choreographers or pieces? Like this piece I made a while back

but short and of course we could think about different styles :P

Hello, parces,  I am exploring the NEAR protocol,  also I had an interview with someone from NEAR guilds this week.

I want to share this platform where you can see the history of my wallet

Hi, Great!

I'm in intensive embodiment training. Be free next week and get back to the post.
