IS LIFE A COMPUTER GENERATED SIMULATION?

IS LIFE A COMPUTER GENERATED SIMULATION?

This is today's hot philosophical topic. This which sounded like a something only sci-fi authors could imagine is gaining acceptance even among bona-fide scientists. The real opening though is toward the eternal question of the meaning of life. The meaning of life is something more personal. Many need some sort of God to give their life meaning... others need to be part of a simulation! Others still combine the two: God has created a simulation-like, holographic reality for us to evolve in.

CHOOSE YOUR THOUGHTS

CHOOSE YOUR THOUGHTS

As consumers, we are inundated with ads and commercials. As followers of twitter and Facebook, we are bombarded with posts and tweets. Sitting down in our couch, we watch TV, we are flooded by breaking news and expert analyses of situations and crises. We even pay for blockbuster films and trendy restaurants. Do we ever take time out to wonder about how any of this makes us feel? Are any of these the highest expression of ourselves? Can we do something about it?

Well... yes we can.

Interestingly, I believe the greatest leaps in app usage will come from Small and Midsize Enterprises (SMEs). In particular those catering to consumers. Indeed, these will permit these specialty and local shops to create and participate in communities with their clients, keeping them informed of their role and what benefits they can bring.

PASSION AND FOCUS

PASSION AND FOCUS

You can't keep on thinking sloppy thoughts and feeling random emotions and expect success. In order for your business to grow or your professional activity to take off, you must BE clear, THINK clearly and FEEL GOOD about it. If not, your business will stagnate or suffer the yoyo syndrome of growth/recession for ever.

SEPTEMBER WAVES

SEPTEMBER WAVES

I remember 911 and the fear associated with that event, so imagine my NON-surprise when I first heard that September 23rd 2015 was announced as the end of the world. 

I have lived many "end of the world" episodes, however this one happens to coincide with one of the biggest business scandals in history.

I feel sorry for the people at Volkswagen who couldn't have imagined their company cheating on such a wide scale.
