  • Symbionomics

    1. 1. a primer
    2. 2. The real world is VERY complex, with COUNTLESS types of flows and relationships.
    3. 3. We use currency symbols to represent and reflect flows that are happening in real life. mirror
    4. 4. Because the world is so complex, we can only make SOME flows visible. mirror
    5. 5. The flows we make visible have a POWERFUL effect on our actions... mirror
    6. 6. ...which in turn are reflected back by our currency symbols. mirror
    7. 7. This continual feedback loop shapes our behavior in profound ways. mirror
    8. 8. If we measure different flows... mirror
    9. 9. ...we start behaving differently. mirror
    10. 10. Clearly, choosing what and how flows are mirrored is VERY powerful. mirror
    11. 11. At its core, the process of creating currency symbols is actually a form of writing. a b c d e f g.... mirror
    12. 12. And in a similar way, currencies reflect our culture back to us. a b c d e f g.... mirror
    13. 13. You might recall these guys...
    14. 14. Didn’t they say something about “free speech?”
    15. 15. One reason free speech is important is that it allows a culture to develop organically... a b c d e f g.... mirror
    16. 16. ...without the interference of a centralized power structure. a b c d e f g.... power structure mirror
    17. 17. It’s easy to recognize such interference when the government is responsible... a b c d e f g.... government mirror
    18. 18. ...but harder when the interference is built into the medium itself. a b c d e f g.... medium mirror
    19. 19. For a long time, it was very expensive to print and distribute writing. a b c d e f g.... print industry mirror
    20. 20. Today it is very cheap. a b c d e f g.... blogs, social media, etc. mirror
    21. 21. Practically speaking, our speech is more free, because more people have access to distribution. a b c d e f g.... blogs, social media, etc. mirror
    22. 22. Now, back to currency... mirror
    23. 23. Banks control the primary monetary currency in our culture... banks mirror
    24. 24. ...and there are many other kinds of currency... USDA mirror
    25. 25. ...all of which reflect different flows that occurred. DMV mirror
    26. 26. BUT, most currencies depend on middlemen between the flows and the reflection. MIDDLEMEN mirror
    27. 27. Clearly, choosing what gets mirrored is VERY powerful. mirror
    28. 28. We use symbols to mark flows thereby making them visible. mirror
    29. 29. We use symbols to mark flows thereby making them visible. mirror
