As already stated in the first tweet shown here above, I find the 2 newest formulas self explanatory, but for every individual it has a different meaning, as for example “You & Life-Formula©” goes against most of the main religious dogmas. For that I say that if you look at the older teachings of where the modern religious dogmas are based on, you will see that the “You & Life-Formula©” fits perfectly within their own framework of what life means to us and the possibilities that lies within our own hands.
With this blog I want to give my own opinion about how I interpret these formulas. The disclaimer for this blog is that if you read that first tweet well, I need to tell you that I didn’t succeed in writing a concise blog, as the subject matter just doesn’t permit it. Or you can say that I am not skilled enough in writing to explain my point of view concisely (something I sometimes also get as feedback from people), to this I can only say: live and learn!
To start, I say (because I know and so I believe and I can argue) that the “You and Life-Formula©” shows that for most of the “modern” religious dogmas, from jewish, christian to the moslim religion, it benefits the institutions to convince people of the existence of an omnipresent & omnipotent God that is everywhere with the exception of being present in our own bodies & minds. I also argue that even scientifically speaking it has already been proven that without our general apprehension of “God” there literally cannot be life as we know it in the universe and scientifically speaking, our closest physical way to “touch or see” the tiniest (known/identified) individual physical part of “God” is through catching or identifying “neutrinos”. You can read for example this interesting Wikipedia article about (anti)neutrinos if you didn’t know about these particles yet: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutrino.
What I am saying here is that people who say or believe that they cannot “see” or ‘“feel” or “hear” or “taste” God are only rejecting a truth of life which is that we are governed by universal / biological / natural laws that we cannot break even if we wanted to. A small example is if you try to hold your breath in to kill yourself, because your own body (if your DNA doesn’t carry an exception!) is hardwired to keep your bodily functions go for as long as possible. So if it (your own brain) needs to shut down the conscious part of your brain to make you stop yourself from wanting to stop your breathing, our body is literally hardwired to do just that, “reset” our conscious brain. I believe the fact that the exceptions in our DNA’s already perfectly fits the notion that something that was perfect for its being replicated itself, and from that we know that in following replications faulty DNA strings can appear. I am talking here about DNA but this replication can also be seen from the very beginning of what we now call the big bang. As for example, this life in the universe for us all as we know it, there must be one sun that can hold itself the longest and in theory that must be the first sun (which would also be the biggest and possibly the one which all black holes are connected someway to) and we know that that sun isn’t ours, but we don’t yet know which one is the first sun in the universe.
The latter example is my hypothesis, and the thing I ask myself here is that, even if this is true (as I believe it is), just as we humans have either a positive or negative effect on the planet as a whole, both geographically and “organically” speaking, are there things that “organisms” in the universe can do to even go (negatively or positively) alter the energy of their/the sun(s), like we humans are currently negatively altering the energy of our earth by being collectively too greedy, damaging and destroying the natural world in such an unprecedented way? At least the middle part about the universe of the latter question is for now a (quantum) physics, philosophical, spiritual or for some people even a science fiction question (depending on how you look at the question), as these types of knowledges of the facts of life we collectively haven’t discovered yet, but when you are talking about us humans, I believe that God is telling us that we must always remember that good or faulty DNA’s, we all must remember we come from that perfect “life string” that connects us (humans and other atoms/molecules/organisms) together. From DNA to even the creation of religious institutions for humans, those are literally mechanisms designed by “Life” to keep itself from auto destructing itself. That is the reason why I think that there are literally pieces lying everywhere around our planet and our universe containing information that gives us an even better understanding of how these universal laws came to be, because of the interconnectedness of life. We are babies in the universe and we believe that we already are masters of the universe even though we cannot even control our own planet.
Before I continue with my explanation of what my own views are in regards to the formulas (and “Life”), let me explain here what I mean with this part: “I also argue that even scientifically speaking it has already been proven that without our general apprehension of “God” there literally cannot be life as we know it in the universe”. With “proven”, I say that science has already proven the existence of God by already identifying things that makes, most of us at least, our heads explode. An example of this I’ve already given with “neutrinos”, but another example that can be given is that we now know of the existence of “black holes”, but we for example still don’t know where they go. So my “laymans” explanation of this physical part of God is that it’s God’s literal asshole, where once you go in you will never get out (or can we?). I believe He also warns us for example in the bible to be careful with assholes, both the literal kind, but also the “figurative” and the “physical” kind. Now this part in this paragraph, there is no scientific consensus (for so far I know) about this, but I believe that in all religions they misrepresented “gay” people and misunderstood (and are wrongly teaching) God’s warning about the “literal”, “figurative” and “physical” assholes in life. I believe that the teachings of God about the asshole is that, with the literal kind, He even put both a pleasure and warning “button” in the asshole of “man” to tell “men” that “some/most?” of us (humans) will go start loving to shove things in there and even start to go so far to start cleaning our insides out (weekly/monthly?) with water (because we can) and this will mess with our (godly) body and will eventually lead for our bodies to become sick and/or die sooner than needed. I believe that the reason God put the warning button (the prostate) into “man” too and the reason why “woman” don’t have it, is that they already do something that He Himself, when He decides to start walking around our planet, has already told us that He prefers not to go through with. If anyone needs explanation about the warning of the “figurative” asshole, check behind your mirror! About the physical assholes in life, I believe thus that God is talking here about black holes, and I believe that there are answers to gaining on for example traveling beyond the speed of light by figuring out “black holes”.
As a personal FYI: I also believe that stars/our sun is God’s heart and to add on Timothy Leary who wrote “Your brain is God”, I believe that our brain is God the same way that a piece of rock is also God, and that the actual “brain power” of God lies within all of us and the only way for us humans to optimally utilize it is by working together on things that makes us and this planet become (even) better. Here is where I think that unfortunately most of the time people choose to work on only (their/other people‘s) “ego’s” and the collective “be damned”. One of the risks I believe exists in believing that “your brain is God” the same way that Timothy Leary believes it, is that as an individual you become a “negative-egotistical” being, and as such, how your actions affect other people doesn’t concern you as much, if any, when those actions lead to your gratification, even when for that one or more people need to suffer (or die) for that personal gratification. As a personal note on this, I believe that we as a collective will take great leaps forward when individuals consciously decide to actively live a life as a “positive-egoist” (if such behavioral traits is not naturally present in someone). More information on what I consider a positive egoist to be can be found in a previous blog I wrote: https://www.tcpaconsultancy.com/blog/positive-egoism-vs-negative-egoism-or-plain-egoism-or-no-egoism.
To continue with my explanation, practically speaking, we humans, are nothing in the universe and in essence we can become everything back again with the universe. For full disclosure, this paragraph is another unpaid advertisement for a book, I think whatever your work is that you’re doing, you really should check the book out from Katie Patrick called “How to save the world; how to make changing the world the greatest game we’ve ever played” (it can be found on Indiegogo: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/how-to-save-the-world-a-book-design-manual/x/23581051#). I was following Katie on Twitter before, but only this year that her book got into my attention, and the work that she did and is sharing with us in that book is to give us all tools to make our journey on this planet better for everyone, not only humans, but flora and fauna too! People that believe that God rested after the bible got finished do not understand that as individuals we are bound by an energy that transcends species and that holds us all together. Every abled person needs to actively choose to become and act as participants on the journey we all are in of safekeeping this planet or stay on the sidelines as carbon matter that one day will be recycled. We have everything in our power if we combine strengths to even live with +50 billion humans on this planet if we wanted to and we are currently collectively knowingly destroying it with not even 8 billion humans.
Especially if you believe in God you must know then that this is the planet that needs to exist for eternity, as this is the planet that our Father Himself will come down to live in our physical world. If you then believe that our Father wants to come down to live here AFTER a devastation because we destroyed everything here, you are deeply disturbed, because ask yourself, what is the point of that? Once you can accept that our Father wants to live in the same peaceful earth that you (maybe deep down inside) desires too, you will recognize that to reach that we need to do it ourselves and that it is utterly selfish to expect our Father to come clean His house with fire because we together with our brothers and sisters are destroying the planet. Now scientifically speaking we already know that our Father already told us that we as humans don’t have eternity to live on this planet, as one day our sun will run out of energy. For us in present times the warning of the sun dying is meaningless, but the warning that we ourselves can kill all life on earth is something we need to take seriously, because we are already late in taking actions to mitigate harsh consequences of climate change. If you open your eyes and see what is happening all over our world, you must realize that we are living in times where only drastic measures will help mitigate the harsh consequences that will result of the climate change we ourselves are helping to accelerate.
Because religions want control over God they have put Him/Her/They/It at a distance of our very own selves for their own gain. This made the whole concept of God for people become either taboo or meaningless, even though you and I are connected to each other in ways that words cannot describe. When there is trust, there is also no need for words. This is something I believe is also a teaching of God and why for example “thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain” became one of the 10 commandments. Once you understand that the power of God is already in you and everyone else, you will see that nobody can hold God as their possession. Going to church must be about sharing life together, not about someone holding God’s voice hostage every time people visit His house, while asking (read: passive aggressively demanding) for money too for doing that “service”, while it is not uncommon that people in congregations have for example these “fights” for who can sit closer to “the speaker in God’s house”.
I am not against the concept of religion because it is the concept of sharing the universal truth that started even before we had books. Only that history shows us that attempting to “privatize” this truth corrupts people and institutions and is also the reason why we have different religious institutions now telling only parts of one single universal truth. I mean this literally and will try to explain this in a simple way...
After the Jewish people became the ones to become the “chosen people” here on earth, when you take a “bird’s eye view” of this history, you can see the effect this had on the global civilization. I believe that even God’s choice of appointing the Jewish people as the “chosen ones” is a teaching that we collectively already should’ve figured out that in our Father’s eyes we are all the same and when we don’t see this we can do atrocious things to each other. The second teaching I see from having the Jewish people being the “chosen ones” is that feeling special makes you also go do atrocious things just so that you can keep that title. Love for titles can even surpass the love for the one who gave it.
In our collective history comes God through a brother-from-another mother Moses to tell us that we don’t need to enslave ourselves (look how well we listened there!!*sarcasm*), then comes our brother Jesus to tell us that we should end both the favoritism and exclusion of people and we should be careful with our love of churches and capitalism (look how well we are listening here about these too!!*sarcasm*). So Jesus got killed for spreading this message back then and afterwards people go create a throne in his name that in essence (eventually?) goes in some ways against what Jesus himself says we need in our lives and this organization in his name becomes a major force. The only way I can explain the movement that our brother-from-another mother Muhammad created is that you can see that one day he realizes that what this new organization is doing and what Jesus was preaching does not add up, so he goes back to interpret the older teachings of our Father and because of his distrust of the new rising christian organization, positions his own views of our Father’s words in almost an opposite direction of what this new rising christian organization is preaching. So this is how we ended up with three religions believing in the same God, but adhering to different rules and why two of them are still waiting for “our savior”. As a full disclosure here too on my personal opinion about these religious organizations: if you take a look at the catholic organization from during the times of Muhammad and the catholic organization now, I believe you too will see that if they started then like now, a movement that became a religion like Muhammad was teaching would have never gotten this influential in the world and the reason that the moslim religion got so big was because how the catholic organization was behaving then. I am not saying here that the whole moslim religion is fundamentally wrong, as it is (just) another way of life one can choose to honor our Father and I know that just like “Christianity” there are various ways of how the moslim religion is practiced, but the strong division between men and women taught I believe only creates unnecessary tension and distrust between men vs women, but also between men vs men and women vs women.
Now comes the difficult part, if you ask me: don’t I believe that “our savior” will come, or like I’ve mentioned before, our Father will come down to live here on earth Himself? My answer to that is, if you truly understand the “You & Life-Formula©” you will understand that I already believe “our savior” and our Father Himself is already living on earth in each and everyone of us, humans/animals, plants and even in rocks. What I believe is that our Father has already warned us, in many forms, that we can destroy ourselves and take the planet with us in our demise when we loose track of our (natural) self. I believe that our metaphysical state is immortal and we are all connected to each other here in the universe. I also believe that He/She/They/It is telling us that the physical state that we are currently experiencing ourselves in was once also immortal and will once again become immortal, only when we overcome our self destructive tendencies that also exists within us. So we can become masters of the universe, only when we become masters of ourselves first. So what that practically means for when, how and/or in what form our Father will appear and identify Himself/Herself/Themselves/Itselves to us in a physical human body that is eternal (and can consciously do unimaginable things with our space-time continuum), I believe is a matter for when we ourselves are ready for it and also a matter that is in our own collective hands to reach to that point. Here is the thing, maybe through working together we will find out how to get to a world where humanity starts having people with bodies who become eternal and who later are born knowing that they won’t ever die (as long as our sun is still shining). If it is possible, that knowledge lies already in us and definitely “out in the universe”. The only thing is that, I believe that God also already told us that going after answers to those questions is futile if we are still treating each other as enemies of each other, instead of the brothers and sisters that we collectively are. If anything can be taken out from the “You and Life-Formula©” is that even though everything is in our own hands, life needs to be shared with all of us who form our own individual “you” and who are all parts of God, or else we cannot have life as we now it, and more importantly, when we go against this universal truth we loose our (collective) time.
(Please keep reading after the picture below!)
Before publishing this blog I tweeted (link down below) about an experience I had with “Jesus” at a festival in Germany and that I was adding this picture of the (working)titles of the 10 books I am working on to go publish. This is if all things go according to plan, because I have no set deadlines with these books, as my priority are to start the next social-capitalistic venture I designed to go introduce new products and services that contribute in helping to make both people and planet much better. So only God knows how many books I will get to publish and so for me personally with the books I just now need to take a gamble that I will finish all books before I die.
I have (still while writing this) mixed feelings of making this list public, because these are working (sub)titles with the concepts of their main subject matters, and it is also still possible that I will merge some books. Most importantly, some of the books I yet cannot finish because I still feel like I’m missing some life experience in certain ways to be able to properly discuss them like I want to in the books. So will making this list public now going to make finishing these experiences more difficult (or maybe now easier?), something I guess I’ll find out later on.
I’m making them now public to show you, that I know that I still don’t have all the answers, by the time I finish off these books I won’t either, but since young I was very curious about life, only I was exploring it mostly by myself. Since I started with T.C.P.A. Consultancy I decided to share my journey with not only more people in my (inner)circle, but just from all over the world. Now I guess, showing you this also puts an added pressure on me now to check these off from my list before it’s too late! In all seriousness, I’m at the time of writing 34 and I am not going to wait until I’m old enough to go with pension (even though I am not planning on going with pension) to start publishing these books, but I also cannot say that in the coming three decades I will have all books published either because of obligations I already made to go do with the Tiiendemanns Group. In any case, if something does unexpectedly happen to me and I die younger than I expect now myself, depending on when that is, at least some chapters of the different books can be bundled, or something. So yeah, success for me is seeing both the Tiiendemanns Group become the global social-capitalistic organization I envision it can become and have these books finished with feeling that they are indeed complete, and not with a rushed feeling.

If you have any comments or questions, about this (or any) blog, you can leave your comment or question below the blog(s)! Maybe your comments or questions is information that needs to be included in the blog or are better suited for another blog, only way to know is if you let me know yourself!
Edit 1. - June 13th, 2021: as I cannot add pictures in the comments, I’m adding these 2 screenshots of tweets I made some time ago that further explains my views of God and our own relation to God
Edit 2. - June 13th, 2021: This year Netflix came with a documentary about Black holes, called “the edge of all we know”. In there they explain the views of Stephen Hawking on black holes and his theory called Hawking Radiation. In a physical sense I can totally follow this logic and see that a black hole can indeed “evaporate” with the passing of time. I find this interesting because if my theory is true then in those “ashes” of an evaporated black hole you would need to find evidence and/or the same materials as from the star of the first explosion of its own star (before it became a black hole) of which it comes from. Everything is connected, so I still find it massively plausible that also all suns/stars are someway connected with each other too.
Also at the moment, we are theorizing that anything that passes the (pressure) of the event horizon cannot “bounce back” and come out at the other end of the event horizon anymore. Which implies that we know the pressure of the black hole destroys every single physical particle that exists in the universe. I believe we humans have yet to develop the technology to detect the smallest particles in the universe, one maybe so small that not even gravity has a hold on it? Literally so small that they just bounce all around the universe and same as neutrinos can just pass through our bodies without touching anything? Maybe those are the true last remnants of the first (physical) explosion and only through exploding ourselves with our sun we can ever get to become so small again? Otherwise on this planet our bodies will only ever become small enough for other organisms to use for their own survival or for some of our molecules to become petrified and unchanged again for ages. Is that smallest particle what scientist now call black matter, I don’t know because with dark matter it’s at least theorized that it interacts with gravity. Even so, can we say for sure that the same dark matter particle that enters a black hole cannot be expelled somehow from it anymore?
The reason I’m asking this is because, let’s say we theoretically figure out how to extend the life of our sun, so that it doesn’t need to run out of hydrogen in some billions years hereafter, and then what if our biggest threat to our planet becomes a black hole that formed (relatively) close by. There must be a way to “oversaturate” the black hole so that it loses its force quicker, and one thing that could do that is a particle who doesn’t lose its mass while going through the event horizon. In any case, this was me just thinking out loud and please be aware that most of my opinion here in this edit are my hypothesis and are not currently based on any scientific finding!
When I started writing this bIog I was standing figuratively speaking on the crossroads of a very big decision that I needed to take that could have massive direct and indirect short term and long term consequences not only for individuals but also for the fate of the company I officially started with the (market) research and conceptualization of it somewhere in the beginning of 2015 and the official bootstrapped pre-revenue/pre-seed founding round in november 2017.
I am finishing the text today for what I wanted to say then, and here is the thing though, something that I really dislike the most about the work I need to do to build a new company, much of “our internal” struggles I cannot just disclose just like that in a blog, Tweet, Okuna post, Entnest say, LinkedIn article, etc, as things are going on because it can drastically influence the outcome of what at that moment needs resolving. When I started the blog then it was almost midnight and there wasn’t any chance I was going to sleep early that day seeing that at midnight the big decision was being concluded. And with decisions like this, when I started writing this blog I don’t have anyone that I can call to talk about this (personal/business(sensitive problem) now. Don’t understand me incorrectly here, if I’m “in deep shit” there is always someone I could call anytime of the day/night to ask for help, so don’t worry that this is something like that! With this problem I could also discuss this with the advisors that are helping me start the company, but at the time I was writing the blog for the first time they were either asleep or they were not asleep but the subject matter is not their area of expertise.
This last paragraph I started writing too, together with what I later on LinkedIn in a post called the Life-Formula©. I was writing this draft of the blog with the intention of saving it for a later date as I was personally expecting another outcome of what happened at midnight. So I started writing this blog as a draft and this following list I wasn’t then sure if I would add everything when publicized because the subject matters I wanted to leave for another blog. So I’m just going to mention now and if someone wants me to write a blog (faster) about a particular subject matter leave a comment under the blog. In any case, for me doing yoga, stretches and exercises helps, using pure cannabis (it’s “legally tolerated” to cultivate your own plants here in the Netherlands, but I live in the same house with my mom and she doesn’t want a plant in her garden, so her house her rules as long as they don’t interfere in my own personal life), “writing it out”, doing the dishes, cooking, taking cold showers and gardening are all things that helps me to put things in perspective when dealing with problems like I was going through when I started writing this blog for the first time.
Here is the challenge I am facing now for finishing the blog. When I started writing this I wasn’t planning on publishing this blog or the “Life-Formula©) in a LinkedIn post. Circumstances made things differently. The personal reason I started writing this blog with this then still unnamed formula as the subject in mind, was because with the particular person I was having business problems with, I experienced something with somebody in a way that I never experienced in my life since having started using the 5P-Formula©. This particular experience made me realize that I need to go tweak the “patience part” in the molecule. Because in this instance, my respect and love for the Tiiendemanns Group coupled with my perseverance to see the start of the 1001 Year Plan materialize is something that coupled with only the “patience part as is” kept me from taking the decision to come with a clear parting point (much) sooner that shows if there is commitment from both sides to see if we can work together or not, even though we both believe in the projects and want to see them succeed. There is also the legal reason that made me come up with what is now called the “Life-Formula©, because if I needed to go defend the 5P-Formula© in a courtroom I wanted to at least have something to show the judge what I believe the base of what the 5P-Formula© and the Peace and Prosperity-Equation© is formed on. Because eventually the 5P-Formula© is created to make the Peace and Prosperity-Equation© more “graspable” and ultimately both formulas say something about “life” and the life I believe we all need to be pursuing to reach our true collective potential to make this planet a much better place to live on for everyone; people, flora and fauna. Only that, what then “life” is or means to me, that I couldn’t put in words, until now.
What I mean with “tweak” the “patience part” in the molecule is that “patience” like “perseverance” is not defined in what all constitutes having optimal “patience”. With “perseverance” (in business or (personal) life) you need a balance in “passion” and “ponderance”. Without passion and ponderance there is no perseverance (-1 + 1 = 0). So “patience” in theory could also be defined in what all constitutes having optimal “patience”. Only that, this particular piece of the molecule is what I learned is still definitely needed to be included in the molecule for it to be (more/fully?) complete. What this means for the 5P-Formula© as is, is that by adhering to the “patience part” too strictly one can actually start deviating from ones own pathway through prolongation of an unnecessary and internally negative flow of process, but that the closed safety mechanisms of the principles do create that adherence to the principles cannot cause (full) breakage with ones own pathway.
What I also experienced firsthand now is that “modern sales techniques” is not only actually (already then) outdated (because they do not fit in an open and transparant global society), but most importantly and personally for me, those communications with people is not part of the culture I envision(ed) for our company. In the hiring process for all new team members this will be a main focus point, because from a business standpunt creating injustice for itself creates the absolute (future) costs of retribution for the negative energy being taken from the whole. To explain this simply: chemical factory treats it workers terribly and doesn’t give them safety clothing just to save money. Long term this inevitably will lead to “science/medicine” discovering the “ground zero” for particular commonalities in deceases from (ex) workers that gives a judge proof to condemn the company with hefty fines (or closure of the factory). This is not even taking the psychological effect that knowingly doing this to others has on a person that will also later on in life lead to a halt of that energy theft that could have gone into creating something positive.
So if you ask me, what is life? I would have need to give you this formula that I now call “Life-Formula©”;
Truth = Time
Justice = Truth
Time = God
If you ask me what does this have to do with you personally and/or how do you stand in all of this? Then I also came up with the “You & Life-Formula©”;
Time = Life
Life = You
God = Time
The fear of change is something many politicians have used for centuries to their advantage, because that is the easiest way to influence the mass... Insert fear into peoples lives and you have their attention. Especially so when you are the only one that can and will save them... Yes, we can. Yes, we can. Yes, we can.. Any slogan or creed where the “we” is only meant for the national citizens/interests is doomed to fail the test of time.
Since I’ve understood that Obama just did this but in practice was behaving quite conservatively and protective of the status quo of the US national interests that is keeping the growing global problem of wealth- and income inequality in place, my trust in politics being the arena where I myself need to grow in cracked, and thus made me become a social capitalistic omnipreneur after finishing my studies. Building for-profit organizations that only need to protect shareholders interests is one of the most ludicrous human policies we’ve created here on this planet. All organizations make money because they need other humans and the resources our planet gives us to use to being able to make a sale in whatever. Even to do a service you need resources of our planet to fulfill your contractual duties. Making all organizations take this fact into consideration in every decision making is where you need to start if you want to save our planet.
We simply cannot close (all) oil companies because we realistically/practically still need them, but we can make them start working for and with our planet and for us, the collective, instead of only for their shareholders. For any young people living anywhere in the world, let your voices be heard in every election! If you’re for example a teenager that really want to vote and can’t vote because the law forbids you to, know that this is only a legal age discrimination put in place by “adults” and you shouldn’t accept this! You may not vote now, but no law can prohibit you of contacting the ones that are representing you in your councils/parliaments! Write them, call them, go pay them unannounced visits and (respectfully and peacefully) demand them to fight for you so that you and every other teenager that wants to go vote can do this in the next and every other election!
When I talk about Obama now it mostly isn’t that positive, because I feel that I need to be critical of him. If I ever meet him in person, I couldn’t be all ass kissing with him, because I really can’t be like that with him, or anyone in particular, when I first have things to clear that I feel about them. I respect the person that he is, I even absolutely love him, but from what I know about him and still see him talk/give speeches, I still see the arrogance and self indulgence, with no ownership of his failings, coming out of his mouth, so with someone like that I just can’t go be feeding the ego to get it any more bigger. The thing with Obama is that he seem to show that he has an inner compass that he adheres to. If you compare that with Trump, he publicly tells people that he doesn’t believe in moral compasses, as the only thing he believes in is his personal win at all cost. For centuries people have become so ego driven that they get blinded on the fact that nobody wins at all costs and never will. That is a fundamental universal truth that manifests itself in everything. That is why I keep saying that the only person in the coming US election that I say can put Trump in check by showing his lack of moral compass in debates on national television is Bernie Sanders*.
The younger generation is growing up with access to knowledge and a hunger to consume this knowledge on a level not yet seen/experienced on earth. It is time for the older generation to start realizing this and combine the worldly experience that only time can give them/us to create a much stronger collective global team here on this planet. Pointing fingers, throwing blame around doesn’t help anyone, and more importantly doesn’t help our planet, it only polarizes societies in a time where we should be uniting.
I also believe that someone like Trump can still change. I’ve got convinced of this when I saw the Netflix film of an artistic recreation of why Pope Benedictus, 16th decided to “renounce his throne”, called “the two popes” (unpaid advertising, because the film is really good!). Only, for someone with the ego of Trump, only a big collective signal and a resounding “no” to his way of life and thinking can maybe stand still and face the fact that we as sisters and brothers of this planet don’t need to be afraid of each other. We will only win as a collective when we start helping each other, not only “our friends and families”.
*Edit on 31-05-2020: Seeing the current protests in the US and that Bernie Sanders has given Joe Biden a free pathway towards being the one beating Donald Trump in the US election coming November, I feel obliged to edit this blogposts with my most current thoughts on what I’ve said here. Today I still believe that Bernie Sanders is presently the only politician in the US that can stand firmly in a debate and after the first debate it must be clear to the doubters, between Sanders and Trump who needs to win. My fear still today, after seeing how Biden is only riding the social media popularity wave with hollow “Obama-words” to condemn the obvious mess of the coronavirus situation that Trump made (both in the US and in some other parts in the world where other world leaders believed Trump’s words against for example the WHO or other world leaders that did take the threat of the virus much more serious), with not mentioning any fundamental changes he would bring to a healthcare system that enslaves people to predatory debt, not enough US citizens will be motivated to go rain, snow or sunshine to go vote for him, like the US citizens that really want to see a 2nd (and more) “Trump-dynasty” Presidency.
Even with Obamacare in place without the GOP interventions you can see how the insurance companies could still find loopholes to not having to pay out for coronavirus related illnesses or even death by just not acknowledging the coronavirus. It is ludicrous to say that only Trump wants to test as few people as possible, because how the US health care system is now set up the insurance companies have also a lot to gain with the status quo by not recognizing a lot of the coronavirus related illnesses or deaths. When you add up now all the people that lost their jobs (that come with their “good” healthcare insurances) and a pandemic going on with a government pushing for economic growth against human health, one can only hope that Biden dares to take bold policies going forward and really starts embracing policies that shifts power (money) back to the people and not only to the special few in power. I believe that in the US the Presidential debates significantly define the outcome, and I also believe that both Trump and Biden knows this so they both would be perfectly fine to do only one or two (or none at all*), and afterwards just take the results of the “toss up”, which will be the case if (again) from the debate(s) no clear winner can be elected. So it is to be seen what these current leaders of the free world will decide to go do, and if afterwards I can go sleep November 3rd with a good feeling that the US citizens will show the world that they are a society that can vote to show that respect (and love) for others trumps fear (and hate) for others.
*Edit for an FYI on 19-06-20: I learned today that there is a Commission on Presidential debates in the US that sets the dates, times and places of the debates together with the candidates and it seems that before writing previous edit, both Biden and Trump already agreed on doing 3 debates. From this article (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/trump-campaign-team-seeks-fourth-debate-with-biden-2020-06-18) it seems indeed that in December even no debates was put on the table, but eventually the candidates settled on 3 already, so you see, sometimes people can positively surprise you!
I still feel like I am very young, but as I’m already in my 30’s I can also say that “when I was younger” I lived my life caring too much about what others think of me and how “they” would judge me. Anno now I still have these concerns, but they don’t control my thoughts and/or actions anymore, they only serve me as a tool, as a guidance on how to go about in life with the people I meet.
Yes, I am conscious of the fact that my own impressions and/or judgement of someone else’s actions can be biased and/or misjudged. In an open society these “interpersonal miscommunications” wouldn’t lead to grave outcomes and/or aggressions, as one would always need to be respectful of another persons life. The problem in our current (global) society is that there is still a too big of a group of people that value another human beings life based by the colour of their skin, by the colour of their eyes, by the natural colour of their hairs, by if they share the same beliefs, or not, or the other baseless characteristics people choose to focus on to judge someones worth here on earth.
I believe that Elijah Cummings, who just passed away fighting till his last breath for equality to all the people in his country, was someone who adhered to his own principle of having respect for another persons life. He understood that for everyone to reach that mountain of glory that Martin Luther King jr dreamed of, we need to give every single human being the room to be themselves and create a (global) society where individuals respect the boundaries of other people’s freedom, where no one is above the law nor anyone else, no matter position and job title and everyone has the same liberty to pursuit their goals, dreams and aspirations.
When I started T.C.P.A. Guidance Center. I knew then, like I know now that I am not a perfect human being, but I took the conscious decision to strive everyday to better myself so that I can achieve my life goal of contributing in being able to leave this beautiful planet we’re currently destroying in a much better state than when I was born. For me the Peace and Prosperity-Equation© was “the thing” that I could hold to and I later on created the 5P-Formula© as the practical tool to guide me in the decisions I make. The reason why I am currently not monetizing the 5P-Formula© is because when I “build it” I didn’t design it with the intention of selling it to other organizations, but just a way for me to use to help/guide/consult with (other) organizations. So I don’t have the proper materials to teach/train organizations on how to use it, and most importantly, I don’t have the proper measuring tools needed to keep validating if organizations are adhering to the formula.
For you to understand me as a person, my focus is not to go do this as it’s very hard to train people. People/organizations need to consciously take the decision to adhere to all principles unconditionally. The problem here is that most people say that they want and/or are adhering to at least a few of these principles, but their actions speak a different language and most of the time because of cognitive dissonance reduction internal mechanisms its very hard to even make someone realize this fact. I am confident that in time I will get the chance to work on this problem and build the tools needed, but for now my focus is building the Tiiendemanns Group, which will be the first company in the world that will put the 5P-Formula© as its guiding business code of conduct in its founding statutes.
I am telling you this because I also know that the information I have now on the website (www.tcpa5pmanagementconsultancy.com) that talks about the 5P-Formula© is incomplete and/or not thoroughly / extensively explained. To honor the work of Elijah Cummings I want to take time here to explain to you 3 fundamental things about the principles in the formula;
1. The easiest way to reach the behavioral outcome of (working towards) being your best self possible and for you to start loving yourself the same way you love others, is to start working with the principles from the bottom up.
2. The easiest way to understand the meaning of “Honesty” is to learn about “the 4 Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz ( you can find more info on them here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Four_Agreements?wprov=sfti1 or you can always buy his (e)books).
A personal note: Since I’ve found the words of Don Miguel Ruiz that so perfectly describes how I myself see what it means to be a honest person, I’ve felt the relief of not needing to go find the right words to explain this myself. As there are no coincidences only life’s beautiful/interesting/surprising intersections, my mother’s maiden name is Ruiz.
3. The easiest way to understand the meaning of “Respect” and how to engrain respectful behavioral outcomes in your system is to adhere to the (sub)principles also shown in the picture, which are;
Gratitude always instead of Greed
Humbleness above Gratefulness
Honesty above Humbleness
Just like the main 11 principles, these principles you cannot take apart, as they work together to create the behavioral outcome of being respectful towards others.
As a personal note on this last point: as you can see in the picture, I’ve come up with these subprinciples only beginning of this year, as I was also struggling to explain the concept of how I understood “Respect”. When I’ve came up with these, I’ve felt an immense relief and feeling of having finished the 5P-Formula©. The feeling didn’t last long because soon thereafter I realized that I still cannot concisely explain the effect of it in ones life/organization so that most people can understand it in a few words, and the aforementioned tools are still needed. So even though the 5P-Formula© is essentially finished, tested and is found to work perfectly, I am nowhere done with this project.
To end with these words of Elijah Cummings: “When we’re dancing with the angels, the question will be asked, in 2019, what did we do to make sure we kept our democracy intact? Did we stand on the sidelines and say nothing?”
As Elijah was called to go dance with angels, we can attest today that he wasn’t someone that stood on the sidelines and said nothing. Coming from the hateful (societal) environment he was brought up in, it is highly commendable the way he as a person carried himself and the energy he put into the betterment of others. In this quote he was referring to democracy, but what he said applies of course to all the collective problems we are currently facing in the world. We don’t owe it to him, we owe it to ourselves to always speak up. We must always remember that we may be wrong about the thing we say, but we are 100% wrong when we say nothing when we know or feel that something is wrong.
DISCLAIMER: As explained in the last section of the blog (https://www.tcpaconsultancy.com/blog/the-1001-year-plan), this blog contains outdated information about the partnership between my pass-through company (T.C.P.A. Consultancy) and Tiiendemanns Group. I’ve decided to leave it online, while adding this disclaimer because it belongs as part of my journey building this social-capitalistic company!
This partnership has been already announced on the website of T.C.P.A. Consultancy and given as a whole on the one of the Tiiendemanns Group (www.tiiendemanns.com). To declutter the websites I decided to take this off from there and put in a blog so that it can get archived best.
The partnership agreement between T.C.P.A. Consultancy and the Tiiendemanns Group;
Tiiendemanns Group buys a lifetime licensing agreement from T.C.P.A. Consultancy, for the use, even in eventual promotional materials from either Tiiendemanns Holding B.V., or one of its subsidiaries, of the Peace and Prosperity-Equation© and the 5P-Management Principles and Philosophy-Formula©, with the exception that if the formulas are used in promotional materials, then that entitity in the Tiiendemanns Group needs a formal permission from T.C.P.A. Consultancy to use the ad, before it can be made public.
Besides this licensing agreement, Tiiendemanns Group also agrees to buy the time of the owner of T.C.P.A. Consultancy for him to take the role as the first 9-Star Viisiitor, for a minimum of 60 hours per week to a maximum of 100 hours per week, and for every hour in the week that surpasses that maximum, Tiiendemanns Group will owe T.C.P.A. Consultancy for those hours the normal consultancy rate of T.C.P.A. Consultancy, excluding BTW, paid in common share certificates in Tiiendemanns Holding B.V. obtained from the reserved 50 million common shares of the Tiiendemanns Group Salary fund, under management of the Tiiendemanns Group Trust. Agreed is that for the (non)-executive board seats taken and for managing the entities according to the 5P-Formula© doctrine, this work is unsalaried, with only Common & Class A sharecertificates and ViisiitCoins bonus schemes as compensation packages.
For the licensing agreement in perpetuity and the reserved hours of minimum 3.120 hours to 5.200 hours per year, including vacation days, with this last minimum salary and hourly rate agreement lasting until the end of the “15 Year Plan; of the grander 1001 Year Plan”, of which at the start of the “50 Year Plan; of the grander 1001 Year Plan”, the Tiiendemanns Group and T.C.P.A. Consultancy will need to either adjust the hours and/or salary and/or billing amount;
For this in perpetuity deal, T.C.P.A. Consultancy receives 5% of the Common Shares (700 million) in Tiiendemanns Holding B.V., in share certificates held under management by the Tiiendemanns Group Trust. The first batch (140 million common shares) will fully vest in 15 years and the last batch in 75 years. The payment of these shares to Tiiendemanns Holding with a starting value of € 7.000.000,- will be the responsibility of Hiinderloopn Ventures B.V., the “working horse” company in the Tiiendemanns Group, and in return Tiiendemanns Holding will invest at least 90% back in projects run by Hiinderloopn Ventures.
T.C.P.A. Consultancy and Hiinderloopn Ventures B.V. also agree to exchange in 15 years, when the first batch of shares vests for T.C.P.A. Consultancy, 100 million common shares for 1.333.333.333 ViisiitCoins. The ViisiitCoins will sit in a locked escrow account until they can be exchanged with the shares.
Lastly, in the first phase of the start of the Tiiendemanns Group, all entities within the group, excluding the separate projects; products/services under Hiinderloopn Ventures, will use the infrastructure, like website, office supplies, bookkeeping, accountants, etc of T.C.P.A. Consultancy. Agreed is that the costs including 4% yearly rent, will be paid in full when the books of Tiiendemanns Group can afford it best, with the rent eligible to be paid in common sharecertificates at the initial statutory price.
Since I was a child I was saying I was a pacifist, I don’t go for physical violence. My brother and I, he’s 3 years younger than me, but was always (a little) bigger build, never fought. Or better said, we’ve never been in a fist and/or physical fight, with the one or two times slapping each other when we were kids, but post-teen years definitely never. Not that he didn’t try, the last time we were even in our twenties.
Yes, things like that, especially physical things that happen to me I cannot forget, especially if its with another person involved. There is a reason I do that and that is that I’ve always protected my body, even by consciously choosing not to do sports and/or activities that can potentially result in (very) serious bodily harm. Accidents can happen and life sometimes throws awful surprises, so I’m (mentally) prepared for everything, but in real life physically try to prevent the worst, as much possible, as I still keep being a human.
This part of who I am and consciously already thought about from child, was all about (protecting) me and that I didn’t want to hurt another human being. I don’t like pain, so I don’t give pain.
As I am sharing this with you, I also need to tell you that what in essence freaked me most internally, which made me ponder for a good while about it, was only recently in my adult years when I realized what that for me really means. The realization came when I realized that I can most probably physically rip a persons artheries from their neck with my nails if they ever physically threaten my life. As a pacifist, I believe in each and everyone’s life to live and that means that I will protect mine when someone endangers my life and I can save mine by taking theirs, as I will never resort to physical violence first. Scientist can’t do this yet, but if they could, I bet that this line of code is encoded in my DNA.
That realization was mind blowing for me. There is no atom in my body that wants to try to really rip a persons neck arteries, knowing that I could and knowing that I would if need be, in essence made me appreciate life more deeply. Our nails are our natural tools that we’ve mostly collectively have banned in society, and of course I realize why that is, because (really) strong nails are dangerous. Just like kids nowadays wouldn’t know what a VHS is and/or what it would look like. Most adults in the world now, don’t realize and can’t imagine the agility in your hands that you get back when you give it its natural tools to work with.
One important thing to mention is that I keep saying physical violence, because there’s also of course other types of violence possible, like verbal or even psychological violence. I’ve lived on an island for 18 years, which mostly is Americanized, which means we islanders usually also speak loud (as Americans do) and especially if we/I get in (heated) arguments, which for example for most mainland-Europeans that can easily come across as agressive. Psychological violence is simply too time and energy consuming, all the while it is something that putrids your soul because you’re constantly feeding it malice. That’s something I wouldn’t even entertain to do to another person for the damage it would do to myself. So, the latter is out of the question for me and the former I do my absolute best not to be weak to let myself do it, I know that there have been moments in my life and probably will be some more in the future, where another person could construe my verbal reaction to them as either aggressive or violent. For that I say my intentions are never to use violence, either physically or verbally, but I do give myself more freedom to let some verbal aggression in times of need, which in most cases would be to give a (serious) warning, or see paragraph 2, last sentence.
End ode to my nails.
Let me start by saying that “omnipreneur” is not yet an official word that you can find in dictionaries. At least in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, it’s mentioned in the section of new words and slang. In there, they say that “omnipreneur” = (noun) : a new breed of entrepreneur who run his businesses anywhere where the action is or where the action is less, depending on the goal at hand. This is a pretty specific definition of the word omnipreneur, because if you search on the internet you’ll see that other people give a more broader definition that goes like; an omnipreneur is someone who partakes in all sorts of businesses.
Well, I didn’t invent this word. But I am happy that this is not yet a recognized new word, because I couldn’t agree with these definitions, because it’s not the definition I use myself for this word.
Strictly speaking, an entrepreneur is a person that does business to earn money for him/herself and his/her stakeholders and shareholders. So simple put, you create a product/service/activity, get people to buy your product/service/experience, get that money by any means necessary and you’re an entrepreneur.
To me, an omnipreneur is someone that goes beyond his/her stakeholders and shareholders when doing business, and more importantly, it goes beyond just earning that cash, mula, plata, or whatever you call that thing we created that we exchange as a means of value. As an omnipreneur, you do business that don’t, in any sense, down grade and/or damage the (natural) environment you’re in. So, this means, with every decision you make you need to ask yourself, am I going to hurt people and/or the environment in doing this to earn money? If the answer is yes, you just don’t do it. Period. If it’s a maybe, then you need to halt your decision and go see why and/or if it indeed will result in (any) harm. So, this also means, even if you know that you’ll miss the window of opportunity for earning (some extra) money, if it’s a yes, you don’t do it and if it’s a maybe, you take the risk that you’ll lose that window of opportunity.
The 5P-Formula© when used helps you automate this decision making. Which is also the reason why I chose to incorporate this formula in the foundation of the Tiiendemanns Group from the start. Because with the Tiiendemanns Group my mission is to help create this organization into a (big) multinational, which puts people AND our environment before profit.
Let me be perfectly clear here. The Tiiendemanns Group is not a non-profit organization, it is a 100% FOR-PROFIT enterprise. But its profit maximalisation is engrained with benefitting the global society and the World as a whole. This is a different way of doing business, because it is about creating value for other people and even other creatures that don’t belong to your team or to your core stakeholders and shareholders.
Just to make this more graspable for you, if you take Apple, the first company in the modern era to reach a valuation of $ 1 trillion, if Steve Jobs and/or Tim Cook were true omnipreneurs, would Apple take the title of the first company to reach that mark? Who cares? Because asking that question is thinking the entrepreneurial way! Because they have reached that mark, while people in Asian countries are being treated poorly. The thing is, if you have a samsung or a windows phone, unfortunately, it wouldn’t matter, because all people making phones are being treated poorly, while the only ones profiting from the phones being sold are the stakeholders (governments and the shareholders/owners of their supplier companies) and their own shareholders. Not to mention the environmental damages they are directly responsible for, for making their devices with planned obsolescence in their design, so that they can keep the wheels of consumerism turning and keep earning billions that “they will all leave behind and give away when they die”.
So, the entrepreneurial and capitalistic way of thinking is to amass now all that you can (so that you can leave most when you die), even if it means destroying the environment or your own client base, and the omnipreneural way of thinking is to don’t take it all, if it means that when you die you leave the World in a better state than how you found it.
If Cook, Musk, Bezos, Ma, Buffet, the Trumps, etc... were omnipreuners, our World would already be prosperous and a true beacon of peace, freedom and equality. This is not the case, because unfortunately, greed is still the driving force in decision making in most businesses AND governments around our World. This will change and I’m still very confident that it will before it’s too late.
Getting more true omnipreneurs active in the World would surely help. With this blog post I hope and wish to contribute in us getting there!
A couple of days ago I had a conversation with someone that wants to start a vegan restaurant, but wants to be (financially) ready before starting with at least the preparations. To which I said to said family member that you will never feel like you are 100% ready to start with a business and for most people it will be the case that they can never achieve the financial readiness to start a or the business that they believe is needed on the market. Starting with networking to meet people in the area/industry you want to enter and increasing your own knowledge that you need to go do what you are planning to go do, is more important than you yourself are 100% financial ready.
If banks or other financial institutions don’t want to help you and you need to find the help with private / governmental partners, then maybe you might need to be ready to change your plans and/or make more (financial) offers in the short/medium term, but starting and turning that revenue faucet on will attract those same banks and financial institutions that rejected you before, but then you’ll have the better bargaining position.
These are fundamental business lessons that I didn’t know when I started and took me some years to figure it out, because most business people don’t like to show their vulnerabilities. I personally am not afraid to show mine, because yes competitors can (try) to take advantage of that, but I strongly believe that in the end the help you will get from others negates this possible risk.
With the end of the year holiday season starting and people are starting to get bombarded with holiday ads to buy presents for themselves and/or others, remember honesty is the best present you can give another human being. If you need to save money for your business and you know someone is expecting a (costly) present from you, tell them the honest truth on why that can’t happen. Even if they are a child, but with a child you can give them a (for them amazing) experience playing and/or with a simple outdoor experience without it needing to cost any money, grown ups should be able to understand that real life doesn’t always give what our brains want.
So, always remember, even (in the future) when you get the chance to speak to a Viisiiter (to get your ViisiitCoin or other promotional rewards), you need to only say yes to buying a product because you really think you need or want it, or because you want to buy it as a gift to another person, because you think they want or need it AND you can afford it. If you can’t afford it you can honestly tell the Viisiiter that or you can just say no or pass!
As cheesy as it may sound to wish you a happy and fulfilling holiday season, not only for myself, but I’m saying this also for both T.C.P.A. Consultancy and the whole team of Tiiendemanns Group and Tiiendemanns Intellectualis Proprietas B.V., I do wish on behalf of all of us that you can start your 2019 with the energy to end it even better than you did when it started!
P.S: For the three nice ladies I met yesterday evening at the @Lisk event in The Hague, and to especially the one that asked me why I gave her a sticker of Viisiit., without having a website where she could read about the services of Viisiit., thank you and you all inspired me to go make a separate Viisiit. website page here under the one of T.C.P.A. Consultancy. We didn’t exchange contact information, but hope this reaches you because after today or tomorrow you can go to https://www.viisiit.eu or https://www.Viisiit.com and read about the services of Viisiit.!

The pre-private sale of the ViisiitCoin already started about 5 1/2 hours ago, so the whitepaper already had to be published. As it was better to give you a complete and well written whitepaper, instead of one finished on time, but incomplete and filled with mistakes, the choice was made to publish the whitepaper later. But even though, I’m saying it myself now, it’s well worth the delay.
For the people that already read the last version of the whitepaper Chris and I wrote, don’t expect to read the same story when you start with this one. Eventhough both whitepapers talk about the same blockchain, they explain the plan in two very distinct way. The first one explained the starting journey through the point of view of Viisiit. and the ViisiitCoin. This whitepaper explains the start of the journey through the point of view of the 1001 Years Plan. The plan of which both Viisiit. and the ViisiitCoin belongs to.
With full disclosure, this is version 0.9.9c and not version 1.0, because there are still a couple of people that need to give their last opinion on the document. There are graphic designers working their magic on it, as we’re speaking, to deliver the final product. So, for now it’s only pure text, with just the logo’s in the document. To not let you wait on that process, I decided to publish this version of the whitepaper in the mean time.
Edit: Because I couldn’t complete this on LinkedIn, let me mention this here:
I really need to give a very special thanks to Chris (van Maarseveen), because without him, this whitepaper would have looked totally different, and I need to admit, not necessarily for the better. He was also the one that suggested that I needed to make 2 whitepapers, one especially for the Tiiendemanns Group / the 1001 Year Plan, and one specifically for Viisiit. / ViisiitCoin. The whitepaper we started was also the one specifically for Viisiit./ViisiitCoin, but that became a +60 pages (with only words) document, because I couldn’t just mention those projects without mentioning the 1001 Year Plan, because the ViisiitCoin is intrically linked with the ViisiitCoin, through the ViisiitToken (and Viisiit.). So it was hard and I know I made Chris very frustrated with all the extra information in that document that he didn’t see the point in mentioning, but without that exercise/experience, this whitepaper we’re publishing now, couldn’t have been made.
So it was after receiving more feedback from other people that couldn’t understand and/or couldn’t go through reading not even the half of that document, I needed to evaluate the strategy of starting with a whitepaper for Viisiit. / ViisiitCoin, and realized that Chris was right, in that I also needed to make a whitepaper for the 1001 Year Plan. More importantly, I realized that that is also the whitepaper that the Tiiendemanns Group needs to start with. Because participating in the dICO/STO of the ViisiitCoin, even during the pre-private and private sale, means helping the Tiiendemanns Group, with the 1001 Year Plan out. That most of the money we raise will eventually go to Viisiit. is important, but not the most important thing to start explaining.
This would be the context of the whitepaper that you can download here under and we’re definitely curious to hear your thoughts and/or your interests in this project!
On behalf of the whole Tiiendemanns Group team,
EDIT July 16th 2019: Because I’ve already made this blog, let me keep it, but for the time being, I do need to take the whitepaper away. It was in my eyes already perfect, but most people found it too long to read and with too much new information and not entirely properly structured. Seeing that I’ve canceled the pre-private sale until further notice and the road map in here had too much details in it, with the intention to show the “ if potential”, but this too confused a lot of people, so taking the whitepapers offline, until further notice too.
Before I came up with the Peace and Prosperity-Equation, even maybe before or during ”the mirror-project” and the “advice on spirituality-project”, I thought of the concept of positive-egoism. The first person I’ve told about this was one of the (girl) room mates I had, that I’ve hung out with the most. Her reaction was immediately be careful with that, because it could come bite you in the ass. At that time, for many reasons I could understand why she would have said that, but the most important reason was that I’ve understood what I’ve meant with the concept of positive-egoism, but at that time I couldn’t explain it like I saw it.
Only of course, this realization came when the act already happened, because if I’ve recognized why she wasn’t understanding me, because her arguments weren’t logical and only based out of (general) fear, so she wasn’t convincing me and I couldn’t convince her. One of the mistake in my arguments that I’ve made then was that I’ve only compared positive-egoism with negative-egoism, thus leaving plain egoism and no egoism aside.
To start with the most simple concept “Ego(ism)”, in essence only insane, as in mentally unstable people/living beings and/or rabies infected people/living beings can be said of not having an ego and/or loose/get out of touch with their ego. So only they can call themselves pure no egotistical creatures. Every other living creature on Earth has an Ego, which it can consciously or subconsciously control. To give here an example, we humans are living creatures with conscious control of our Egos. The mere fact you can read these words, and especially if you can understand them, with/without help of translations, makes you a conscious being in control of its Ego. Other conscious beings in control of their egos that we know of are for example, dolphins/whales, elephants and (great) apes. Animals like dogs, cats, pigs, monkeys, parrots, etc.. have an ego that can be classified as being between conscious and subconscious, but cannot be called full conscious beings, as they are also driven by wild instincts and hormones that can take control of their behavior.
That hormones and wild instincts can also take control of dolphins/whales, elephants and (great) apes is also true, as is the case with human beings, albeit, we humans through inbreeding through these centuries have collectively come more to grips, through ego-realization or medication, with their hormonal and instinctive (wild) reactions. Which, especially with the latter, is something that is not necessarily best if we lose total control off. Learning to trust meteorologists instead of your own wild instincts about the weather cannot be something that can collectively cause harm, but loosing ones instinct of knowing if something is good to eat and trusting only supermarkets can cause collective harm in societies. Of course, there are people in the World that are not insane and that you can call not egotistical, but most of the time, you can also call those people naive or ignorant. So, even though no egotistical people can be (very) good people, their lesser self reliant and/or interdependent nature creates a vulnerability in the collective society if most people become non egotistical.
A positive-egotistical person, as I consider myself to be, is someone that accepted its ego and lives its life for the betterment of everyone, including themselves. This last part is important, because it’s not for the betterment of themselves and others, because in that case one creates a separation between themselves and other people. All the while, the betterment of the World means the betterment of everyone. Wanting to be the only one that does well in life, is a selfish, egotistical, unrealistic and definitely self harming way of thinking. Just as, willing to hurt others for the betterment of self, something a negative-egotistical will always chose and a plain egotistical person might choose, also is. Helping others and hurting (or hindering) yourself in the short term is for the longevity of your life better than helping yourself and hurting others short term. This counts for business, work, family, friends and life in general. Helping others and yourself, or helping yourself and not hurting others, or helping others and not hurting yourself are of course all better options than the aforementioned scenarios, but the essence of positive-egoism is that in life you are living, playing, wandering, which way you see yourself in this present life doing, with other people and your actions are never without consequences for another person. Never.
A plain egotistical person is someone I call that is a being with a conscious controlled ego, but that mostly lets their daily management be controlled by their subconscious and/or automatic pilot, governed by their innate desires, wants, needs. Now the difference between plain egoism and no egoism can be better explained, because with no egoism someone is more out of control of their ego. In spirituality, even to attain ego death, ego depletion or letting go of ones ego, starts with the identification of the ego. Listen to gurus and even the teaching of Buddhist/Buddha, even they couldn’t escape this inevitable universal truth. So, someone with no egoism is more like ego-less beings with subconscious control than plain egotistical beings.
Now, you can thus say that the difference between a negative-egotistical, plain egotistical and positive-egotistical person is both consciousnesses and motive/intention in their negative and positive behavior/acts. Negative-egotistical and plain egotistical people are less collective behavioral driven than positive-egotistical people, because their motive/intention for their behavior are driven by self interests, self pleasure and self propagation, in the broadest meaning of the word, without prioritizing or taking into account the effect on the collective and even prioritizing self betterment above harming others.
The reason I’m bullish about our collective future is because I believe that we are now getting to the point in time where there’s inherently more positive-egotistical people living on Earth than negative-egotistical, plain egotistical and no egotistical people, combined. Many people say and/or believe that a person can not change who he/she/they are, so one would then also believe that a negative-egotistical person can never become an inherently positive-egotistical person. Believing in that is not believing in the collective and not believing in the power of good. There is more to be had for everyone with doing good, than doing bad. Because doing bad can only create short term gains for the bad actors, but results in negative outcome for most and maybe all, including self in the long term. Doing good can never result in short and definitely not long term negative consequence for anyone. Even negative outcomes stemming from good intentions result in long term gains for everyone, even the ones being hurt short term.
This is not a matter of hope, believe or faith. This is a universal truth that has been explained and passed down as wisdom for ages, only not by these precise words/terminologies. If by giving this behavioral choice a name, I can help one other person find a tool to make better decisions in their lives that helps contribute to a better global society, then this positive-egotistical behavior of mine was all worth it.
