  • davidorban David Orban, CEO at Dotsub, Inc. Thank you again for your attention and patience in listening to me. I always welcome feedback on what I say: the ideas of those who invest their time in understanding my message, even when remaining in disagreement with it, remain the most important element. Thank you! 5 years ago

  • davidorban David Orban, CEO at Dotsub, Inc. I want to invite you, at the end of this lecture to continue this line of thought. In your actions and lives as members of the community of Al-Andalus, and as parts of your atomic societies. 5 years ago

  • davidorban David Orban, CEO at Dotsub, Inc. Proposal 2: the greatest force cannot eradicate differences in thoughts, and action. As we risk moving away from democracy in the physical world, it is as if we acquired an autoimmune disease, which is this dictatorial illusion of total control. We cannot give up the values at the heart of what our societies are in order to assure that nothing escapes our control. 5 years ago

  • davidorban David Orban, CEO at Dotsub, Inc. Proposal 1: we have to treat our body, and our biology with respect. Those who we sometimes we feel are intruders, in reality are an indispensable part of what we are. If we create an apparent monoculture by aiming to kill off everything that doesn’t neatly fit into our expected ecology, what we prepare is only our own downfall. (Do you realize how foolishly dangerous is to force bacteria to evolve resistance to the antibacterial products if we use them daily, only to be let off by them when we need them most?) 5 years ago

  • davidorban David Orban, CEO at Dotsub, Inc. The tolerance and robustness we described previously are not something imposed from above, from the outside. These values emerge spontaneously from a healthy society, or a viable technology, and represent the evolutionarily winning strategy! 5 years ago

  • davidorban David Orban, CEO at Dotsub, Inc. Being open to the options that those who are different from us bring, enhancing our experience and enriching our world is necessarily part of the future. 5 years ago

  • davidorban David Orban, CEO at Dotsub, Inc. Our memetic drive, the need to understand are not only a trait of our species, not only a curiosity, but a fundamentally important feature of the value we can add to the world. 5 years ago

  • davidorban David Orban, CEO at Dotsub, Inc. These new organizations will base their existence on the atomic world, but their adventurousness, experimentation, and readiness to progress through mistakes is going to be superior. It is superior already! 5 years ago

  • davidorban David Orban, CEO at Dotsub, Inc. This is why the online worlds are not just mere tools to help with the daily chores of life in the material world. They are bound to develop new levels of organization that will express higher fertility and broader resilience than anything seen in our atomic societies before. 5 years ago
