 I am preparing to go to the jungle and I will be off grid there for 10 days including the halving.

I think sitting in ceremony will be the correct location for this one.

No cell signal. No screens.

Starting today I will take a break from nostr.

Love you all. See you in the next epoch 🧡💜💚

 Certainly a different vibe here when the Americas are largely asleep 🙂 
▲ ▼
 How would you describe the difference?

 Right. It will be interesting in the future to track topics of discussion and do nostr analytics based on time zone and such.

 Double screenshot clown mode

 Use cases like this are great for proof of concept 
▲ ▼
 I wouldn't know the first thing about it, but I'm glad you are documenting everything so well.

Great logo as well.

The QR and scrolling words on the bottom of the YouTube feed are a little too small to read on mobile. FYI 🤙

 Poof!  There's now audio.

 Way better now that I can hear them chewing the zaps

 Was this too much? The threshold was way lower than that 😅

Would be nice if there was audio and a bell

 Sometimes I wonder why the bitcoin price is so low.

Then I remember how often I see someone wait until the last possible moment to merge.  
 Gn 😴

Gonna try to remember to look at my hands

 You got this 👐

Assuming you're trying to lucid dream.

Other tips that have helped me. Smart phones don't work, light switches don't work, books never have the same words if you look at them twice and no two fiat bills will look alike.

 A theory in progress:

Consciousness exists on a spectrum between the simplest forms of matter and the source of creation.

Addiction and avoidance are the moderating factors which determine where human individuals exist on that spectrum.

Consicousness moderates free will. One cannot make a choice freely if they are unaware of the available options.

The more addictions or areas of avoidance a person has, the closer they are to animal or inanimate consciousness. 

Shedding these limiting energetic charges allows for the expansion of consciousness. 

The more conscious a person becomes, the closer they are with the source of creation.



....Any thoughts or reflections are welcome.

 I translated this and I'm still not exactly sure what you mean, but maybe you are referring to energetic resonance. 

If that's the case we are in agreement 🙂 
▲ ▼
 Yes at that point I think it's important to find a cause or gift to dedicate ones life to 
▲ ▼
 #Bitcoin requires an investment of energy to be understood.

Those who don't wish to understand it never will. 
▲ ▼
 Those guys are stealing money?

I always just assumed they were trying to get me to sign up for a paid group. Wild.

 Excellent to see. I started a little over a year ago.

The advice that helped me was to begin with the gospels and go back to read the old testament in chunks 🙏

 Why NGU suddenly?

 Supply and demand 🙂

 You and @jack have the same taste in shoes

 I'm really enjoying the conversation. 

At the same time I am thinking back to about 10 years of people saying NYKNYC. 

Now a lot of people are making concessions to custodial solutions. It makes no difference to me or my UTXOs, but it will for those who never get one. 

Feels like a bit of an L for hyperbitcoinization.

 If you post about ETH or any other shitcoin being legit you will get corrections from those who know that is false.

If you have some time, listen to that podcast episode I sent 🤙

 Just because you're a bitcoiner, don't call everything else shitcoins. At least, ether is legit

 I've been boosting some of my notes to catch my friends in different time zones.

If you're seeing it twice maybe get some rest 🫂💜😄

 Arguing ideological terms is mental drama.

The question I look to answer in every interaction is simple: 

Does the person I am speaking with want to cooperate or do they want to dominate? 
▲ ▼
 Yes definitely. I used to be one of those people.

I can assure you at the time I was not trying to be an a-hole. I was just unconscious 🫥 
▲ ▼
 Haha wow yeah that's an interesting technique. Not sure I would recommend that because once the ego is invited in it can go on forever non-stop.

Might be better to start a meeting with synchronized box breathing 🙂 
▲ ▼
 Yes if you feel the need to have an ism 😄 
▲ ▼
 That is an especially tough one, but very important 🫂 
▲ ▼
 I love the nostr 💜

The discussions that happen here feel far more natural than any other social media I've used.

I think it's because of the people who are prioritizing freedom over convenience 🫂

 I received a private message by a man who was asking me how I am doing with the current market or... 
▲ ▼
 Pro tip, anyone asking you how your trades are going or if you want to learn about bitcoin mining is a scammer and likely also a bot 🙂 
▲ ▼
 I understand you question now.

I think depends on what client you are using. Different clients seem to have implemented different spam controls. 

I'm not aware of any spam blocking solutions on the relay layer yet... but there is new stuff happening every week. I can't keep up 🙂

 Boy would you just look at all the ways I've been limiting myself https://image.nostr.build/513397846b79e9ee281bce9eba46691e2c5d4fd373174e5a3cce9e73b3cec68f.jpg

 Instant classic.

 Peace isn't made, it's discovered

 Excellent questions. I have often wondered the same thing.

It looks like that will be up to us. If we can transmute our internal need for control into an acceptance of Self, peace can be sustained.

If we use bitcoin as a replacement of the current methods of control we will reinvent what we are opposing.

 I was orange peeling a good buddy in Munich last night. Got up to go to the bathroom and saw this.

 If you have an 401K that is not managed by your employer (I had to leave the company that held my 401K before I could do this)

You can roll that 401K into a regular IRA and then open an account with unchained to buy self custody btc. 

You can roll it into a roth as well, but there is a tax liability.... looking back it might have been wise for me to pay the tax and make it a roth.

Looks like you got a pretty good answer though 👍
