Indeed!! knowledge never lies on the surface. You have to dig to find it. (Let's talk about cryptocurrency, social networks, steem and all.)

3년 전

Because as for find knowledge, there always has been someone bigger digging and doing it...

¡Way Before Than You Did!


Lately, plenty times and too often, I surprise and catch myself wondering with great amusement; ¿How the hell people could aspire and pretend gain new knowledge if they don't READ? If they are not willing to explore fully their surroundings. If they are so lazy and unwilling to fold their bodies to lift each and every stone around them to watch and witness with eyes of discovery the hidden life that lies, elapses and blooms under each one of those rocks.

¿Can they find any mental peace and proud on themselves merely living enclosed in so tiny bubble of ignorance?

Perhaps, ¿Is this that most people these days figures out that acquire knowledge is a too heavy burden to carry along the road? ¿Is it worth at all to know something new? ¿Something new about anything? ¿Anything?

¿Is it such an unbearable thing to find awareness and become a conscious being of yourself and everything and everyone around you?

Well, that seems to indicate all my observations and statistics about. For instance, let's first see this from the point of view of cryptocurrency. As it is not that I am an expert on the subject. I will only provide a brief reflection in which to meditate for a while.

  • ¿Are cryptocurrencies money at all?

  • ¿Do these cryptocurrency digital tokens own and hold some perceived exchange value for goods and services between peers?

  • ¿What would happen if its quotation price in the current money markets today and their relative apparent financial value were not usually measured and compared against another equally intangible and born out of nothing trash fiat currency like the US dollar is now to establish its exchange capacity?

  • What would you think would be the immediate figures & results on the crypto marketplace if suddenly the marker to establish the value of the altcoins and means of payment was another newfangled and surging foreign fiat currency as a reference to compare against physical money like for example: The Renminbi, the Sucre or any of those already cooking within the boiling kettles of BRICS before the final fall and defenestration of the green paper notes occur?

  • ¿Are you digging, collecting and hodling dust with great expectations already?

¡Yeah! let's answer to these questions with some "Crypto Answers"!!


Now, let's turn to the second point. ¡Social Networks! Behaviors and demeanors of people when grouped together through societies, communities, tribes, clans and gangs in one and the same small space.

  • ¿Do you actually READ?

  • ¿Do you READ enough?

  • ¿Do you know what exactly READ means?

  • ¿Do you invest time reading something?

  • ¿Do you have any interest in knowing what others think about something?

  • Do you also read not only the content of the posts, but also read from top to bottom all the comments of those who took the time to share their point of view in them?

  • ¿Can you anticipate where I'm going with this?

¡Yeah! I suspect you do. Or at the very least, I know you could intuit and half guess where I'm going with this. So, let's begin as soon as possible with the beating to get you out of any doubt.

Steeeemit.. Ahh yeah, steemit. This seems to be a social network ¿right?. A digital little island which suddenly emerged from the depths of the known internet ocean and now floats on the surface of the salty waters previously crowded and already full of life. With its own brand new land and fertile ground over the blockchain at sight. And far away from the shores of mainland where usually all those other kind of weird and dissimilar societies, communities, tribes, clans and gangs used to and make life together overcrowded into tiny, small and large spaces without the slightest hope of obtain the deserved recognition or the accordingly economic rewards for their wit, ingenuity, time, dedication, hard work, inventions, creations and/or.. eerm.. shenanigans.

¡Yes! all the above may well be true. But we are talking about that this virgin island remained empty and desolate in the beginning. It had to be populated by someone or something to flourish with true life. And guess what? ¿Where else would this virgin island find life to lure them with her promising charms if it was not in the already existing wildlife around?

But yes, I suppose that I have already exceeded the limits in the text of my content in this post. So that I am gonna be told again that this is TL|DR. Especially that dreadful DR bit that so many people tend to spit so shamelessly and joyfully around in your face without the most remote minimal consideration and respect. Hence, ¿Who really cares?

If you really want to gain New Knowledge through my articles and posts. You would have no other choice but await a bit until I write the next chapter of this post. Where I actually plan to immerse you into unsuspected depths and unnamed lengths of my delightful humorous and extravagant rants and raves. Because remember, the subject that is still left to comment and develop in this post, is that at the end of the headline and title of this post: ¡Steem and All! After all, everyone always long for a sweet and good dessert at the end of a lavish and splendid meal with their belly already full. ¿And the posh cup of coffee? Yeah, that will comes too!! Because on the next chapter, we are going to be talking long and hard about the usual customs, bad habits and trickery exercised by that crazy social animal fauna to which I was referring before, that would eventually be the new settlers of this emerging virgin island in the network of networks.

Because we are going to talk about...

The biggest "Social Animals" ¡Human Beings!


Just wait a little and I really aspire to see your face on the next chapter of this post.

¡Will see you later! or at the very least, that's what I expect. }:)

Maybe is darker than that?

Everything that happens in the blockchain remains engraved forever as part of the blockchain ADN

"Todo lo que ocurre en el blockchain queda grabado para siempre en la estructura del blockchain, es decir que un post que publicaste hoy y enseguida borraste, queda allí grabado en la cadena para siempre, evidencia perpetua en un registro de movimientos entre cripto monedas y ahora con las redes sociales remuneradas, una fuente de mina de ideas ideadas por un grupo de matemáticos como una nueva forma de obtener con trazabilidad un máximo de información sobre tus hábitos para crear patrones reales de comportamiento"

I'll translate i promise.


So much truth in this reply from @happyme

There is a saying: Ignorance is bliss.
For many, this holds true. For those here on Steemit, I think we are a bit outside that realm. However, because of the way this system works, many are too busy writing their own posts to have time to read. Then there are those who hold a regular job, have a family, and must fit all the daily chores into the day along with spending time on Steemit. This leads to taking short-cuts (skimming instead of reading) or ignoring altogether if it takes too much effort to comprehend. Unfortunately, this is just the way it is.

I just got angry in the discord (that is a place to get angry anyway) Since i put a link saying I DON'T want you to Vote this, i need you to go, comment and raise interest...
(It was a discussion about joining dolphins to make a whale for hispanic latino or whatever politically correct is today's way of calling people who are steem-hindered by spanish language like me.

The consensual reply was:

Could you explain here? I don't know what you are talking about...

FFS that why i put the bloody post link... So if you want to be helped, go and read what i already wrote...

Rant mode off

·

Could you explain here? I don't know what you are talking about...

¿What more could you expect from illiterate people who refuse to read anything longer & beyond a simple sms all the time?

And as for the general behavior on the vast majority of the live chat rooms on Discord. This is like entering a bar where everybody is already drunk and in jodedera mode simply distracted trying to have a good time without thinking much. ¿Could you expect to establish a coherent, lucid and serious conversation with someone there? Come on!! }:)

But where the heck do you get to talk to them before they get drunk ?

Knowledge finds its way to the mind that is able and ready to percept.
Some posts I read. Some posts i „scan“. Some posts I eat with all my senses. Some posts are hidden to my mind although they are waving with much noise in front of my eyes.

Sometimes i am hungry for knowledge and rub my soul to wiser people then me.
And sometimes I just wanna have fun.

Thank you for sharing! :)

Oracle like prose, sounds like steemit time is like a good trip, but human mind works exactly like that!
Whenever we are not ready to accept a new face of our perception of reality we are unable to see it.

You are very welcome dear @laylahsophia. Thanks for your comment and upvote!! :)

I hope this post was one of those you ate with all your senses.

Yeah! that's true.. but for that, you have to dig nevertheless!! }:)

Since I am an archaeologist digging is my passion! ;)

'That' ..is exactly what I thought!! :)

@por500bolos, you started my day with a lot of laughter and I need to thank you for that. Those comics are truly hilarious!

As for the article itself, I can see that you have a very humorous nature and I'm sure you would be a lot of fun to hang around with.

I received some bad news yesterday. I had my regular eye examination and they took a picture of the back of my eyes and there are bumps forming on the part where the eye senses the light to form an image. This is bad news because it leads to blindness. I am getting new lenses with a blue filter in them to assist with blocking some of the blue light (which is supposed to be bad for you) and have been prescribed some heavy doses of vitamins that support eye health. However, too much computer screen time is the culprit, so I may need to cut back on the amount of time I spend reading off the computer.

As for your confusion... I am a slow reader and even slower at typing, so for me to read and respond to people takes 3 to 4 times longer than most others. I have a lot of posts show up in my feed every day and just scanning through them for interesting titles takes me a good half hour to an hour! Never mind reading those I choose to look at! What can I say; I'm just too slow!

Hello my dear @happyme. Excuse me for the long delay replying to your always welcome and appreciated comment. I've been having alot of undesirables issues with my internet connection lately. And i thought your well thought and elaborated comment deserved way more than a simple & vague response.

Having said that, now get ready for my wordy beating as usual. }:)

Firstly, very glad to know that I had been able to make you start your day with much laughter by reading this post. And yes, I swear. I am indeed a cool chap to whom would be alot of fun to hang around with. }:)

As for the second part of your comment. I understand and comprehend perfectly what you say and I agree with you completely. Unfortunately, it is a fact that there aren't more free birds, sedentary hobos and wise elder bums like me out there, with enough time in their hands willing to read more, interact more, learn more and being successfully able to catch up through our always slippery and overwhelming feed page all the time.

Regarding the bad news about your eyes. Do not worry dear, those bumps will disappear alone sooner than you think. I have known of similar cases before and as you say, with a good dose of the appropriate vitamins & stuff these bumps simply disappeared on their own after a short time. ;)

And as for the last paragraph in your comment, I will put jingle bells to my posts from now on to save you a good deal of time finding them quickly and once you've done it, you can be as slow as you want to read them.

Cheers and trust in your vitamins. I don't lose the hope you can see me clearly in full colors if some day we have the chance to hang out together for a good laugh in a close future. :)

Thank-you for the wordy 'beating'! I do enjoy it. I will be watching out for the 'Jingle bells' in the future!

Test: Did i hit the wrong reply thing and unintentionally indented my previous reply ?


In any case Voted and ReSteemed by the PopularPoorPeopleOfVenezuela Trail
I'm recharging my VP to give the 100% myself (darn thing drains too fast).

Since it is the only submission so far to the Votable iniciative and even thou it fails to meet the criteria I don't care its deserving it.

If before midnight there is another submission I'll deal with the consecuences.
