Sharp Question About Money

[insights] Posted by lemur47 on 30 July 2023

We tend to think that we can free ourselves from money by making more money. But the truth is distorted and hidden. So let's decipher and decode the fundamental truth together.

What would you do if you had a basic income? What would you do if your current job was automated from tomorrow? What would you do if you didn't have to work for money?

These typical 'template' questions are often used in the self-help and spiritual industries. Sometimes they are used in the context of AI and automation. Most people think these questions are most relevant to financial stability or financial freedom.

But, the truth is different. It's more like the truth is distorted and hidden.

So let me ask you a simple question that's closely related to these questions. This question is a vowel question of these questions.

What would you do if the current civilisation and its economic platform are collapsed?

This question can be translated into a coded form - what would you do if the current paradigm was replaced by a new paradigm? Or, what would you do if you had to throw away everything you currently have?

There's a reason why the questions about money don't relate to financial stability and freedom. You can't free yourself from money by making more money. All the money coaches and self-help consultants don't seem to know about this fundamental truth.

It's the same with automation. Whether it's automated by other people or by machines, you can't free yourself from the structure of slavery by controlling and enslaving other people for your own freedom. This is another fundamental truth.

To experience the issues of money, automation and freedom, you can do some experiments by yourself.

The first thing you can do is to stop using social media apps. Then, stop checking emails and messages in the morning. You will find that you have wasted so much time and have no idea what to do instead. This experiment challenges you to simulate a new paradigm.

The same goes for basic income and automation. You can automate your tasks and workflows with NoCode tools. After delegating 2,000 tasks a month to machines, you will have time to do new things. So what would you do?

The final question about money and freedom is related to your mission or purpose. Working for money is tied to your life. You have to pay bills. Everything is now mediated by money. Whatever money coaches and consultants say, the money system is the platform to enslave you.

Try yourself to work for your mission without making money. Then you will find the truth there.
