if I give you a dollar and you give me a dollar then we both still only have a dollar but in addition we now have some trust that we are able to deal with each other and the exchange will be equitable if I give you an idea and you give me an idea then we then both have two ideas and then if I give you an infinite number of ideas and you give me an infinite number of very different ideas - then there is nothing that we both then cannot do together - that is the basis on which I have written this little essay: the richest man in the world ever

Something I just realized recently - even though I had seen this image many times earlier

what for is the work worth doing - an answer to a question posed by Seth Godin -

Dear Seth Godin today you ask what is the work for you - that is worth doing? well - I am an artist - and long before you posed this question to me in a message that came to me here on Facebook this morning I had thought about this a great deal - as an artist I could create a few images - post them on the internet and work my damndest to market them to people all over the world - I believe there are some 7 billion people in the world at the moment and many many many more billions over time that will arrive and spend some time doing whatever they so choose during their lifetimes and so my marketing could also be directed towards them as well - but instead it still strikes me as odd that I might be encouraged - cajoled or even forced to do this marketing thing whatever that means at any one moment during my lifetime since this seems to be changing from the past endeavors of doing it - till now and perhaps will change even more as I spend more time living here on this planet earth - …

it does strike me as very interesting that perhaps the only individual capable of constructing a wall barrier fence what have you that would be the most effective at the southern border of the US is the only person that members of Congress are preventing from actually taking on the task because he just might be able to show them how to accomplish such a task and for a lot less money that anyone else could have ever imagine - but so goes the political arena as it has for such a long time - the same type of waste of time and money was going on in Trumps back yard so to speak and he showed the government officials there some of his skill in producing a skating rink where no one else was able to make any progress at all - seems to me that all of the members of Congress are actually afraid of having him show them up and showing just how inept they are - so they won't even give him a dollar to do the work? But what is going to happen is that one way or another he will and has said tha…
