Well I fell compelled since so many interesting views were shared
already that the most appealing option at the moment is to wander
through them like performing a Mycelic Brain Ritual.
I'm looking for places where
the Thoughts Rhyme and Hide Behind the Mirror;
trying to stick my head out on
the other side of the Rabbit Hole,
where Everything is Upside Down.
What I see is not exactly the failure of Bitcoin; but these political
visions of freedom and autonomy, validated by most of our joyful
rebellions, are close to that of Mycelia. What I also see is a growing
industry that is understanding and extracting its value: financialised
capitalism, or algorithmic finance and computationalist ideologies.
Just like network routing algorithms were inspired by ant scenting
patterns, we are witnessing a moment in history in which the
mainstream industry with all its techno-poetic powers have embraced
the patterns of Mycelia.
Sadly? through us.
And its not there to save us
and the world.
I've never seen so many connected yet parallel world scaling visions
in corporate roadshow as now,
it is almost literally
the Moon Landing
of financial industry
in the middle of a Desert we are leaving behind
p.s. shoutout to the fellow fermenters out there
ohhh so many SCOBIs in our kitchen hanging in and out of us
