The moon

Tetris. I ended up moving some stuff placed next to the wall to the top of this pile of things. The previous thing on top was a folded top matress (weggeven?).

I want to sit on the roof. Sucks that I have to go to work tomorrow.

I held that thing for like 5 mins. Let’s sit on the roof? You and I? (Not of this house lol.)

The proposal alternative I have for my essay is much better (anyway). I am not going to apply for a scholarship. (I haven’t had an allowance since age 16, by the way.) To be at work before 08:00, I have to get up at 06:00, but there are so many things I want to do :[. Cuddle me?

“What do you do exactly?” Is a question many people who have stumbled upon my Instagram account have asked me. Because I do not know if they would appreciate it if I would reply with a 2000 word essay, I have described to them where I am currently at in the process of getting where I want to be. The full answer would also include where I came from and where I am going exactly. This could have been easy to describe, if I started off from a regular position and the profession I want to master would have been a profession that already exists. There is currently nothing and no one I can compare myself with, so I will break everything down in this article.

This article will be under “published maintenance”, just like all other articles on my blog. You can follow the editing proces live.

As for now, I crave to edit my websites and work on my strategies and marketing, but I have to get up at six to get ready for work… I work 40 hours per week at the ANWB Emergency Center in Den Haag. For now, the contract is only for the summer. (I am “saving up” for an investment… Unfortunately my father has way more than enough funds for the investment I need, but he prefers to spend it on miners. Of course, it is his self-earned money, so he is free to do with it whatever he wants to do with it. But this situation is making me feel a strange form of neglection, which shouldn’t necessarily have to exist. I can’t really talk about it with the people in my environment, in the sense that they pick my father’s side and tell me “I should be happy I have a bed to sleep in.” (But I think they don’t understand my passion and say this because there’s a lot less money earned in their household.)

I do not feel comfortable with working with someone who is solely passionate about making profit and not about the goals I am trying to achieve (especially because it might take a while before I start earning from my passions), so I don’t look for banks or angels.)

Every time I write something about myself, my underlying feelings tend to show. I really don’t like drama, but I can’t deny that I’m dealing with a little tragedy here. (I don’t like talking about it, but if I don’t write about it, it will just be an unspoken burden, weighing down on my soul so heavily.) This will not be for long, though. I know there are people out there who are just as passionate as I am. Once we get together and put our heads together, we will create so many truly unique and beautiful things. Now that I am not in a “non-distance-learning” university anymore, finding my potential target audience has become a lot less easy. A few days ago, however, I had an idea that might change this.

Below July 30

I still need to write the core. I will do that when I have a day off.

Back At It: Thursday, July 19, 2018

16:27 (04:27 PM)

Hey youuu

I have missed you so much!!

After my “mission” in the US, and me showing a very emotional side of myself on this blog, I told myself to not share my thoughts on this blog again. For the sake of attracting a larger audience and accomplishing my life goals (creating a new world, etc…). My thoughts are very “untraditional”… And I REALLY dislike defending myself against someone who solely intends to push their opinion, while not trying to even understand mine. I was afraid someone would verbally attack me for the way I express myself on this blog. But, as usual, there’s a lot of unspoken turbulence in my life and I need to express that somehow…

Before I dive into the turbulence [I want to make clear I am not “un-cuddle” and what my thoughts are on my thoughts on certain parties, which I’ve expressed in older posts. If you’re going to read my older posts, reading the thoughts on my thoughts is a must read, to understand why “it happens”] I want to write down what I put in the pasta I made for lunch/dinner at work, I ate today (and yesterday…..).

Tagliatelle, aubergines, tomatoes, union, stock block, saffron, turmeric, cinnamon + … (“Jonnie Boer kruidenmix”), creme fraîche.

21:55 (09:55 PM)

But of course I had to work in the meantime haha. My shift ends in 5 minutes.

00:42 (AM)

And now I’m in bed. I’m too tired to finish my stories now. Hopefully I’ll have some time tomorrow morning and in between clients, tomorrow afternoon/evening.

The Future of Mass Enlightenment

The minds of many people in modernized societies are occupied with life in a professional environment, information disseminated by mass media and social media as an extension of their personal life. Within this type of reality of an individual, new concepts are introduced every day. New (sustainable) products, new online networks, new world news, et cetera. These concepts are only new in the sense that they are the latest variation of a conception that already exists. This makes me wonder: will we, in twenty years’ time, still be talking about that “new” type of smartphone, while the conception “smartphone” already exists? Will we forever be re-inventing the same things?

My aspiration in life is to introduce a concept to enlighten the masses with, which cannot be broken down into an already existent idea. Of the many different ways I see to put this into practice, Project Nosce Te Ipsum has the largest potential audience and the most fun and diverse development process. It starts with an alternative, more accessible publishing system for scholars and will, in the end, unveil a completely new perception of life, for those who are interested in experiencing that. We need an alternative publishing system for scholars, to be able to experience truly futuristic concepts.

 

Without education, we would not be where we are right now, as a society. Education has brought us common knowledge and the knowledge we need to fit in, in a professional environment. It has given the lives of many people purpose, who else would not know what to do with their time on Earth. Through the education system, very large amounts of people are prepared to work for a business and climb up within that same business environment. They spend what they have earned. So, indirectly, the education system is keeping the economy going.

Even though education keeps society going, I do not believe it brings society forward. It is the ambition of an individual that familiarizes us with his or her newfound knowledge and allows us to evolve. This passion is incentivized by personal interest and would exist even without the existence of the education system.

If this invention of either a mental or a physical concept could lead to a service or product being delivered to the masses, only then those who have gone through the education system could get involved in the process and seek for ways to keep the business going, while trying to make more profit and searching for more efficient production methods, like they are taught to. In this manner, education keeps society going, after the independent reasoning of an individual has brought us forward.

The educator has a very honorable position within the process of societal development, but, by the masses, his or her position is, unfortunately, not celebrated as such. According to Bernays (1928, p. 121 – 122), not only is he or she not tasked with mass enlightenment, the public is also not very interested in the field of education. The educator is tasked with teaching a relatively small group of individuals the same accredited knowledge every individual is supposed to know, to obtain a certain diploma, degree or certificate. (For scholars, I like to consider teaching and doing research as separate fields, even though, for some people, they are part of the same professional life.)

[Introduction: “basic intro” statements about social media and mass media, then  ]

[Core: explore!! Confirm your own knowledge by learning from experience.]

[Conclusion: ]

This will be my original contribution to the Essay Writing Contest. (With a back-up on the web, I’ll never lose what I’ve written :D. But then will plagiarism become an issue?? Hmm… Then I won’t put it on my blog, I think. There’s a chance they won’t look at it if they see that it’s “100% plagiarism”, because I put it on the web… I could also put it in the e-mail I in which I send the essay, that if there’s plagiarism, it’s because it’s on my blog, because other than that there’s no way someone else has stated what I will state in this essay.)

The maximum of words is 1500. I’m picking the topic “How Education Improves Society” and plan on stirring in my plans for “new research publishing” and “new PR”.

I’ll be using “Bookman Old Style” on 12 points. Double-spaced. The deadline is the 31st of July.

The thing I always struggle with is to not introduce too many topics and lose the essence of the point I want to make. So down here, I’ll just write down everything that comes to mind right now, and then later decide what I’ll make of it. I want to state that education is so good to society (even though I would personally prefer a different education system), it should be more “approachable” for your new knowledge to be shared. As in the “research publishing should be different” (more independent)… Now, we have been “building on” common/shared knowledge. This allows people to legally make a living. Education branding can inspire someone to also seek for new knowledge. I don’t want to state things as facts, but not be able to back up my fact. I think we have milked common knowledge enough. Now it’s time to focus on individual knowledge. You could use someone else’s knowledge to . Just like how the scientific theories on how the universe came into existence are built up. It all started with the perception of one person. That person’s theory was considered true. Other people started to build other theories upon that one theory, and now we have “The Big Bang Theory”, which is branded internationally. It defines the scope of life of so many people. How about everyone has to search for and confirm their own theories? Since the perception of the universe is unique to every individual. As a pupil in this new education system, you pick whose knowledge you use to get your own knowledge. When you’re done learning, you become a freelancer/sole proprietor/business owner (who hires freelancers/sole proprietors). This way of living incentivizes people to “stay more sharp”, in the sense that you have to actively keep trying to distinguish yourself and developing your business. This is different from having a permanent contract at whatever company.

I need more text on how education improves society, but I actually disagree… Our current education system just gets people ready to become a slave until they retire… What would be better, I think, is to state how education could improve society. I mean, our current society isn’t bad, in the sense that there are lots of people who can live a life without having to struggle day in day out (but what is struggling if you don’t like your own lifestyle? Then literally everyone is struggling and there is a lot more to improve). I think society needs a certain type of improvement, and education is the only way to achieve it. So what would be better is to say “How education could improve society even more”. And then introduce my plans :D. (Because also I don’t really agree with education improving society right now. It’s ambitious people who improve society. They often do this with “new knowledge” they found themselves… (But I don’t have numbers on that.))

Through education, mass education through mass media has been made possible. I want to talk about the public relations type of education. But before that could make me go off topic, let me state the type of improvment I [and you too, I hope] want to see. Should I not criticize the routine of life we’re forced into? Because I really don’t like it and I think I could offer a way better alternative…

How do I go from “nothing” to explaining how we could create a new society within society, for those who

Draft thesis statement: “Why the D.O.C.I.S. International online think tank is what will initiate education improving society more than ever before.” (But I was taught in Dutch you should sound confident, but in English you should humble yourself more. Also, the think tank only works when everyone cooperates, so it’s not that certain… I need a new thesis statement.)

Concepts and statuses are fixed. They should be non-fixed and organized in a different way. (Bernays x2)

To re-organize society, we need the S.I.P.O, because it allows us to oversee the influences of external parties, and learn our true common perception of life. With this, we’ll find an alternative to the actual fixed society we’re living in.  Some might not crave for this, but for those who do, there will be a project. For those who say “yes”, but consider this question a trick question.  Today, there are no educational pioneers. Only business leaders. (Care about status too much. Misused intelligence.)

What is, then, the final goal of our development? I think this is something personal, not universal.

Deleted paragraphs:

“If from today onward, our society would not undergo any changes anymore, would you consider that a problem?” My hypothesis is that most people will answer this question with “yes”. In our globalized society, it is almost unthinkable to not be notified of developments anywhere in the world. By just reaching into your pocket, you could learn about sustainable growth in a third world country. By laying down on the couch while gazing in front of you, a reporter could inform you, he or she will say, “about the legislation of something large groups of modern minds have been pleading for, for a very long time”.

Thesis statement: (something like) “Mass media and social media are the new pioneers in mass education. (Luckily) that won’t last forever. This will change when education becomes more oriented on the individual, instead of on the masses” (but then subtle)

The introductory question is actually a trick question. The entire first paragraph is actually “een beroep op een bepaald sentiment dat iedere moderne propagandist toepast”. [find proper translation]

Zzzzz: Wednesday, July 4, 2018

12:48 (PM)Hey sweetie,How are you today?It has been so long since I’ve written something to you. I miss you now more than ever. I barely have time to write :[. I wish we would not have to depend on “regular jobs” to maintain our lifestyle. Or that we would just work together. (I know you’re a very good writer……… *cishe*)I’m in Den Haag now, having lunch. I kept working at the beginning of the lunch break, so the group was already gone and I feel too awkward to go to the big cafetaria to search where they’re sitting. (I don’t have much to say so I ask a lot (too many?) questions.) So I decided to eat my rice and beans at one of the many coffee corners near the “classroom” we’re being trained in.
