The Baby & the Tesla.
Updated: Jan 14
The story was written in order to question the relationship between the market and an individual's perception of value, joy and wealth.
Definitions of value, joy and wealth will follow at a later point.
'The baby and the Tesla' was written to start with an explanation of Datanomics.
(Datanomics: Data as a multidimensional currency to replace money, in order to uplift the quality of the human experience of life).
If a baby legally owns a Tesla, then a regional monetary market is likely to asign monetary value to the identity of the baby.
The baby cannot drive the Tesla.
The baby might even find the Tesla scary.
Markets are stupid.
Markets that are coordinated regionally are stupid.
They asign value to the identities of babies for things that babies cannot use.
Humanity can produce complex stuff very fast these days (#innovation).
The author David Deutsch wrote a book to explain the start of the human quest for insight. In his book 'The Beginning Of Infinity', he argues that, so long as a person has a reason to learn and to explore, the person is likely to continue to want to learn.
I make this point to explain 'Humane Centervation' in Datanomics.
Innovation and learning experiences have strong effects on markets.
The more we learn, the more confused we will get in economic terms because economics is too one-dimensional for the strong relationship that people everywhere are building with their own perception of their own reality, with society, with innovation, with learning, with unlearning and with destruction.
A philosophy to promote positive innovation in Datanomic Terms:
A baby doesn't have the prerequisites to master the object that used to make a baby somewhat rich in economic terms up until the start of Datanomics.
Human Centralism To Promote Innovation: Humane Centervation.
If we, the people, learn to understand what we want and what we think we need, then we can individually better play our parts in order to reduce the complexity to get these things, and to foster innovation.
Remember: it takes as much energy to make yourself happy, as it does to make yourself sad.
What's the problem?
The problem is that the people were taught to ignore the reality of their own humane experience of life as parts of regionally defined markets.
In a sense, we are all babies inside of Teslas.
Time is never complete.
Why do you try to reach completeness all the time?
When an economic deal is closed, it is over.
Nature doesn't work that way.
People are nature.
Economics have ruined nature.
Are economics therefore also runing the people?
Humanity has come very far with one-dimensional economics.
Money has survived as a currency for a very, very long time.
It is a wonderful phenomenon and a compliment to humanity that we have reached the moment wherein we have collectively chosen to expand our understanding of the individuality and the complexity of value.
Congratulations, humanity. You have made it.
