Blockchain Tech for Decentralized Sexuality with Lawrence Lanoff TPP128

Play

Lawrence Lanoff PIcIn this episode I’m joined again by my dear tantric brother Lawrence Lanoff.  He shares his epic romance with cryptocurrency and blockchain technology leading up to his role in the groundbreaking Token AI platform.

We discuss the potential for decentralizing sexuality with smart contracts, reputation algorithms, cryptocurrencies, and beyond.  With healthy doses of techno-optimism and spiritual anarchism, we’re able to rejoice in visions of a sexier, freer, more abundant and accountable tantric future.

That was my that was devastated because you know I just saw this beautiful world by the time it started to build and there’s momentum and excitement I really realized this is the future it’s kind of like natural gifting generosity, how to buy a book burning man I started to share with all my friends my friends let me help you understand this stop but I was still I was super excited but like I hadn’t gotten if you down yet and the Beatdown is really what changed everything right losing all that just changed everything because so licking my wounds and don’t you that experience and realizing how much of the Wild West this thing was as of June to see these new players coming on for the Quinn basis of the world you know who were saying hey you know what we believe in this and we’re going to stabilize it we’re going to try to create the standards that allow this thing to take off that’s how I started to come back in and around when it when I saw Bitcoin after having seen it at 1300 when I saw that $200 I was like this it can’t go Lower Lake where’s it going to go like there’s like the value is there you don’t lose value it just condenses or gets dispersed a little bit differently but that’s not how value works so. Is hot climates back in and and I’ve been on this fascinating ride that then led me into to discover aetherium at Burning Man and you really because of everything that I have been through I saw like I could understand if you and I just I don’t know how else to say like it was just like this is really beautiful Bitcoin was sort of the First Market and has the big it is a big branding name but at the end of the day they are these very beautiful community of people innovating and that is what I saw in this area super super exciting how did that then leave to your now on this African radio pads and working with developers and a Powerhouse team I just read that article on the token AIA upcoming Ico and I’m just do it in the show coin offering or token launch is probably the less tricky wave of the new marketing strategy rather than sex thing it’s funny the way they kind of set that up as a as a trap you know it’s like saying we are the crack dealing pushers but actually were selling Coco asking for for regulation over-regulation but anyway yeah what’s the what’s the story on on that you know so I feel I feel as if we’re in this beautiful world which is which theory that was the big the big breakthrough suits online that can hold money and if the if the certain conditions of that contractor meds in that money is distributed that’s leaking incredible all kinds of structures in organizations that the bible-thumping culture have relied on lawsuits in hell and brimstone too, keep everybody in line with some simple conditional programming you know the god elements the overseer the overlords and and that’s what captured my attention cuz that’s on the horizon that really nobody knows about well so think about like what you know what’s called a smart contract I think at this point we’re not really a technology isn’t really there yet but that doesn’t mean we can’t use it in and choir incredible. I’m so happy I have a kind of smartphone but there’s a lot that still needs to be going to look very very different yes and how it interacts with you so if you think about this what is the logic that’s that’s holding this money which is what we’ve done with our contract how do you create rust how do you talk to one of the things it’s going to be needed as just the way we think about seeing some machine learning and programming and artificial intelligence imagine a smart contract that is actually checking its own coding or maybe coding itself or taking the best of all thoughts of every contract that’s ever been written takes the best of them all the holes just has the contingencies in their rights the program itself based on you know analyzing 30 million contracts and I know you have like a smarter self amending potentially even healing contract creating its own trust like that. Those kinds of things are in AI smart contracts it is actually self amending self-monitoring opportunity icy out there so when I realized that it was like waking up one day and realizing that there were these two freight trains you had no they’re not there like you know earthquakes and tidal waves and one of them is called the blockchain and this country centralization of trust where we are our own Banks our own holders of our own artificial intelligence which is about to wipe out millions and millions and millions of jobs around the world but in America yes the Technologies are not there but we need people thinking about them and we need the best Minds on the planet thinking about them freely without corporate interference without you know hey we don’t like the way you’re thinking about thinking about this stuff because you know we don’t agree with whatever whatever this thing is right now we’re if somebody feels threatened with science they just shut that science down so so we’re kind of in this world and I think it is a moment in history a rare moments in history where essentially you can get X number of dollars from regular people from you know we want to in essence support a vision and just essentially just say here go and develop the best that you possibly can develop in that field and I think when you’re dealing with things like blockchain and AI specifically absolutely. I think some of the best most transformational life-changing you know ideas in our future but the day the champy salt with the same level of thinking that has created all the problems that’s that’s why I’m excited about this Moment Like This this week so you know what happened to I wrote my I started writing my first AI app take 10 years ago and it was self-financed and did I can only take you so far and I think we’ve come so far and there are just so many incredible things that we truly can’t even think about thinking about right now so that’s what I’m up to awesome oh yeah couple of us came up in that process which is one the the hubris that I believe a lot of people have towards a I being quote-unquote impossible or whatever the singularity is not going to happen all that and all that kind of thinking it held up in the world free Mega Giga Tera Peta hashpower where that came from the Bitcoin Network so as ability to run the scenarios of Randomness I mean I’m not a genius but I do know that that was the end of the logic of not being concerned or ahead of the curve with a I was that there’s no way they can simulate biology because they don’t have the computing power there’s no way they can you Skynet Terminator AI World War scenario is impossible because the computing power does insist well now thanks to you and it’s sort of a double-edged sword isn’t that you know that this big is me already far surpassed all the super computers combined were talking about the most lethal and potentially Liberatore Computing system that has ever been unimaginable computing power and it’s just continuing to grow so well we build on that platform is going to determine the fate of life on Earth do you know no show Absolutely yes I’ve discussions and you have to just you have that discussions in in my opinion is we need to be rooted in reality and I would say the first part of my spiritual path was was not dealing with reality that was released 30 years of my life and it’s the light. Until I started get footing in reality where I could actually have the strength to stand up 2 I mean anything from a cult leader to email just stand there in the face of whatever you do anybody want to talk about because when you when you’re when you get rooted in reality a lot of things make sense like a lot a lot a lot make sense and that’s why I feel so strongly about this because I just don’t see I just literally literally right now did you not hear a conversation beast in reality and that’s a that’s a little bit disconcerting but on the other hand I realize like you know how like there’s like you just kind of my phone the Cherry for a while that’s what I feel about the thinking behind and basically stole you know childlike world and not in a good way putting in a kind of way where you know Daddy says something and we just going to urgent whatever daddy says must be true panda you know right now depending on what side of the line you are that world is either more scary or less scary because if you’re like Daddy Daddy has the power then you feel safer cuz Daddy’s in a running around pounding his chest but I tell ya what you know where you’re going to like this what is Ben haunting me and tickling me so much lately it’s just that you know what this actually all is the whole Bitcoin crypto subversive tidal wave that weird looking at it is the second coming or the 2.0 upgrade of the archetype of the Revenge of the Nerds and so the alpha male has been beating his chest and running all these systems with Brute Force tactics and authority and it’s just the math whiz Geniuses who were too socially awkward stereotypically to be seduced by the game that makes you peak in high school and not strive to achieve anything beyond the football captain and prom king or whatever and then you just sort of atrophy the rest of your life by thinking of the good old days and you just get resentful and whatever so that Arc of of of Alpha Male masculinity rules the planet across cultures from Warlords to Nina parliament’s presidents whatever you prime ministers you’ve got to that underclass of open-source Geeks who actually were the only extreme radical leftist anarchists Libertarians excetera to actually get filthy rich in the process of subverting undermining the jocks that gave them the keys and fluster head in the toilet so this is such a proud Victory and I just I’m sad that I’m so cold illiterate that I can’t really participate at that really fun level or I haven’t invested the time to do it but I bow down to these these Tech Geniuses and really it comes down to trust in math in math is a Authority that I can salute as an Ender Chest do you know what I mean so moving moving on to the the token AI That’s again disintermediation institutions of trust and Authority that have the daddy complex and replacing them with math and computer power and the ability to make what was inaccessible to most average people trading currencies something that you click a button and it’s managed for you and it’s secured by a blockchain and all that so that’s just my cursory kind of glance of it but if you want to break it down. But that’s the thing and it’s community-based are decentralized so you can you can participate in the voting rights of the organization eventually tell us what kind of stuff you want you think we should develop we can vote on it so that’s the other beautiful things like there’s the wisdom of the crowd aspect so because they it’s it’s like we’re we’re still in the model of kind of the benevolent dictator in terms of functionality like organizations that function but but but but that’s change it you know and it’s beautiful that we take the wisdom of the crowd is just such a powerful Insight that he just is going to like we have a better idea and that is until emotions get heavily involved with the crowd basically guessing a cow’s weight like if you took everybody’s guests of the crowds just look how sweet the aggregate of that was like we’ve been I forgot something very very very very precisely within the realm of actual week how hot was it on your phone you can just download something like that in 3 seconds and all of a sudden your yoga teacher who takes crypto you know what I mean and so it’s awesome in this is what I do at my we have the exist festival.com for South by Southwest and is not an official South by event is a disruptive one because even though I love songs by and I painted a giant mural for South by that’s going to be showing the Expo Center for Austin Rodeo I love what they’re doing so many ways they’ve also turn down quite a few female speakers for the blockchain panel and I don’t know enough about what they’re doing and I’m sure there’s reasons why everybody does the things I do but I think it’s important to set up other events are outside of the you know of the gates of South by in the rules and so on so that’s what we do we set up where where we can bring in a bunch of artists who have never heard of a crypto before or we’re interested in it and teach him how to download a wallet and then make their sales for there vending whatever they’re running t-shirts and arts and whatever in Krypton there you got like that’s all it takes so when I get on an Uber or Lyft or Rideshare I asked them if they take crypto and they look at me like I’m crazy and then I show them how to download the wallet and then I took them in crypto and when I go to any any local shop or any restaurant I just automatically always ask do you take pepto and they just look at me confused and then they asked and then I tell them and so it’s just word of mouth and that’s a very small way in which and how we can educate each other just asked about it as if it’s part of your normal life because to me and to you it is you know and so the more people we have on the system the better easier we’re all going to to evolve within this I don’t know if that answer is exactly the question and adapt and actually alter reality one day at a time just with whatever means you have you know yeah that’s exciting is that you know I’ve had I’ve had a similar kind of weather journey of just wanting to onboard friends and just get people excited about it and really the best way to do it is just to get them started with some in just a few or I’m going to split the mule and give you your you know percentage of Crypt or whatever and and that just gets that gets the party started for for anybody and I see why you’re talking I was imagining they’re being a i y bet there’s got to be some art galleries in the world that just give what is QR codes on every piece so in case you don’t want to buy it you can just tip the artist while you’re there be a white of all the art that I’m so like thrilled to behold in my eyes when I go to an art gallery I would go in there with a budget to tip all the all the artist that I thought really blew my mind you know that’s a whole number and thank you for saying that because I seriously have been wanting to make a video on this for so long thank you for reminding me I want I want all the spray paint artist mural is due to get a QR code stencil and so many times that I’ve been moved by a mural and I yeah you can buy it and you can buy a piece by the artist I’m just freaking said man like $1 a hundred people $1 and then you go home and the artist girl out in the world like how insanely amazing about education if nobody told me that I could do better if I wasn’t a part of this movement I would not have either. So yes I think every Gallery should have a key or code next to their pieces for sure and hopefully work making it easier and easier to have these things be more accessible and just like you said you know split a meal and pay in in crypto just like you would do with venmo or PayPal is very easy and another thing that I think is important to mention is that at first when Bitcoin came out in the early adopters now that Bitcoin was more like a Welsh holding system and still now you know it’s people assume that that you have to have a lot of money to get into crypto but I love the people at and dash dash people talked about this a lot and then cash and Litecoin you don’t fast transaction this is a system that I believe in I’m so tired of using Banks and I’m so tired of using Fiat I don’t want it anymore so I don’t actually hold its on a crypto I’m not at a point where my Abundant Life reflects in my in my wallet but I do get to use crypto every day to do my everyday things and every time a little more and so even if you just want to download a wallet and put 10 bucks into either or 10 bucks into like going or Dash or whatever your favorite currency is just put it there and do nothing with it and check it again in a month and see what happens or just how about you don’t have something like $100 and whenever you go do something if they take crypto you can transfer that and just start really small it’s it’s such a mountain of information that I can be very overwhelming I sign up for a steaming a couple a couple weeks ago and I’ve heard about steemit for for those of you who don’t know it’s a platform like it has all these different channels you can blog writing you can put up videos it’s basically a decent realized turn off all the social media that we use today so right now if you comment on YouTube or Facebook or Twitter or Instagram you don’t get paid for your value and reviewing people’s content but on steemit you basically get rewarded for being an active member of the community you get paid for voting for curating and you can receive a lot of steam power and crypto money basically for producing good content that is useful to people and it cannot be tamed innocence other than by the users and the population and so it’s a really amazing system in everyone’s use it for a long time but I was kind of intimidating by it finally I made an account into two and a half weeks to clear which is insane and and I’ve been getting super overwhelmed with learning how to use it and I just try to continue to watch one video day and do little things at a time and in no time I’ll be an expert you know that’s all it takes so just I hope that people don’t get over Round And if you’re curious just continue learning just a little bit at a time you don’t have to be an expert overnight exactly. I’m glad yes team is amazing and probably going to totally crush it on there just is it doing writing published his stuff it’s been specially in the crypto space is people that it’s amazing some of the mounts you can get off of that and it shows you how big data is really extracting so much value from users of platforms and it’s it’s it’s not going to be long before just because it’s free means that you just give them all your data and sign away the property rights and all that stuff is is going to be replaced by this micropayment ecosystems where people can support each other you know value in the content that they consume and and being really well well supported in and I think it’s going to do the asking to do a lot of amazing some of her friends yesterday we were talking about all them you know thousands of jobs disappearing as robots take over and Singularity and all the stuff and at some point in my life I was really concerned about this you know yet where are aliens off drivers truck drivers going to go when we have also if driving cars do you know all the stuff but the answer is blanching all these people will be doing things in blockchain I will be getting paid well for it and it’ll take less time and I mean from the Tim Ferriss 4-Hour Work Week on and everything. Having high developments off technology and be more efficient with our time does not mean that we is not does not need to be scary you know there’s a lot of stuff within fast Evolution that is that is concerning to me specially how fast were developing and growing and how our security initiatives are not all the party yet and I think we’re getting there so there’s a lot of concern of course but anyting however I don’t think that we all really grasp or we’re starting to now how how much we really don’t have to work 90 hours a week or whatever the ridiculous things we do you know that the whole point of this is that micro payments and micro contributions from everybody involved will react what time for us to to be humans to exist to just let me know this is such an interesting new development in the sort of f have that imprint of a techno dystopia since childhood from all the Sci-Fi and I watched it and then you know you imagine this world where humans are made up sleep by robotic technology and Ai and I’ve been pretty sure that those prospects especially now is drones of coming to the picture and now I really feel like it as of this moment this kind of is really the undeniable presence in the now of both of those dystopic seems coming coming nauseous to come to life but coming into existence but then as you’re saying which is actually so Redemptive for sheep the human soul is that like she was an example something might you might have some thoughts on as far as empowerment but it’s like the the sort of this myth of the scarcity of worthwhile productive labor that can be done with from picking up trash to planting trees to cleaning up toxic waste like through the blockchain micropayments and sort of micro temporary employment contracts that can really enfranchise all the homeless people to get a micro crypto payment without actually showing up and waiting in line to get in the welfare program or get into a you know some sort of job placement program you can just be like you know you show up on the there’s some spill like a whip there’s some kind of cleanup has to happen and people can just mop it and and have day labor crypto payments and there will really never be a gap between meaningful work and and fair pay and there’s plenty of wealth in the crypto world alone to finance stuff like that and even if you know whether it’s through a nonprofit system or through taxes done I mean I’m not going to endorse taxes in general but but you kind of know what I’m saying so how do you feel about that you feel like that’s the direction we’re going to go and there are so many projects that have mind-blowing for example the green miners are looking into mining basically with all green energy from turning trash into clean energy so that things like Bitcoin mining don’t have to take resources as we know them now and there are so many projects in the space for cleaning up the oceans and cleaning up the air and I’m bringing food to the right places and replanting trees and replenishing the soil I mean there if you think of any good initiatives going on in the world for every single one of them there is at least one crypto person who is trying to intercept and connect and there are some barriers you know like the the extreme hippies and I don’t mean that in any negative or positive connotation specifically just outside another word to use like the Crypt on earth and the cryptic Crypt of hippies and all these people like hippies like me back in the day when I when I was in Turkish hippie confused and all of this navigating technology and really scared of it I never imagined in my life that I would be here talking about technology I like but at the same time I see like you said you know how directly this has impacted my life I live a better life I can eat better food because I have my bills taken care of more often because I am connecting projects that feed my soul in that feed my pocket and and it’s just it’s just acknowledge he’s not going anywhere so yes hearing drums zooming around in the air concerns me especially there’s no privacy laws about this and I’m sure I am in plenty of videos just public random videos of people have of course all that is concerning to me but at the same time if I can get drones to massively plant trees and water them creating on cleaning water and stain of away and replenishing the Salt Lake of course I want that also so it’s a fine balance you knowing yeah there’s just there’s just so many opportunities and I’m a very hopeful first person you know and Technologies not going anywhere in the craziest disasters are going on in the world are very real and I’m very aware of my privilege and I’m honored for just being able to be a voice and a part of this movement in any way but if you are truly concerned if you’re a person sitting there and you are really really against technology my best advice to you is to get involved you know what I mean just get involved and make sure that our our moral compasses are still true and that our time is being used efficiently because while I think it’s piercing experiencing abundance is a really healing thing for our communities that happen monkey trained into scar City and fear so I think that having lavish parties in exotic places when they are led by the right Compass when we’re doing no trash Left Behind when we’re also feeding and in helping those communities those are beautiful experiences I think also it’s very easy to fall into the you know greedy egotistical side of things and so we can be people on the sidelines criticizing this movement or we can just Dive Dive Right In whichever way feels comfortable to you and try to help from within you know absolutely yeah amazing so do you want to take can you talk a bit about you know obviously not to be tokenizing but I was really thrilled to know that Amanda B Johnson is the spokes person for Dash and they have a sort of a in the dash consensus system they’re they’re holding their whole their whole technological platform on the basis of it there’s money allocated in there sitting there a crypto economic ecosystems to support people in in roles as delegates and Advocates and Educators and I’m I’m wondering if you have some thoughts on connecting with or have you connected with women in crypto and just having more solidarity and more initiatives that are women lead and women find it and having the the voice and the the wisdom of Sisterhood in the crypto space which is is seriously it’s I don’t know I wouldn’t say this that I understand to be hyper sexist or it’s just a typically gender imbalance in technology for various reasons of course and but this is one of the most inviting and open-minded for thinking space is so I’m just curious if you have thoughts understand that aspect I do and I just want to throw in really quickly that Dash is doing some incredible incredible things to use this new currency in the everyday lives of people and changing a lot I mean I spoke with Danny the other day from the Crypt of showing radio station and just some of the projects he shared with me that they’re doing going to orphanage orphanage is camping outside open and to defend that old homes and rebuilding after after earthquakes all of these weren’t the weather doing in Mexico and helping people from the US and for Mexico to send each other Dash instead of Fiat you know making it super useful super accessible for them and actually turning crypto into into resources are they need whether it’s a new fan for their ceiling or food or whatever and so they are doing a lot of work right on the ground and putting you know when ATMs in crypto ATM there just it is amazing to see this dystopian Society for good and bad is already here as completely I mean crypto is already being used in so many daily activities all the time so much more that we know and I know that documentaries are being created and they will be available to all of us soon and every time more but there is so much more happening than we even inside are aware of you know every time I talk with anybody is it blows my mind all the projects are going on in and that this is the Hood part of it is another one and there are all these telegram groups going around some of them are called crypto women badass women in blockchain you know he’s different name there’s this group on Facebook called crypto queens and I have found some amazing amazing humans are working with the UN and women investing in women and funding each other’s projects and the Miami Conference the North America Miami Conference Bitcoin conference I had this one person run up to me this woman and she said hi sister if you’re a woman here I pretty much want to connect with you and she added me to his telegram group and I stole that from her in the best possible way so every time I’m at any blockchain event I run up to the women and I said Hey sister if you’re a woman in the space I want to connect with you and it’s just so beautiful and so maybe 5 or 10 different groups that are all women in blockchain and art projects in blockchain it is it is really unbelievable I’m actually really excited for the South by Southwest there is a bunch of the crypto Queens are coming down we’ve been talking about doing a documentary about women in crypto and I just hope that I get to interview them 10 minutes with each bomb in super supportive so it’s been quite interesting and of course there is still competition with in here and there but for the most part I find that women are really supportive of each other I also have been working with swarm City and the storm funds quite a bit I meant Joel from Joel Dietz from swarm and we talked about a bunch our projects and all the stuff happening and you express a lot of interest in supporting both blockchain art projects and women equality so I know swarm is now sitting around the survey to try to make sure that there are as many women as men users and their platform that’s really exciting and also so many surveys about how they want the tokens to be used and so on are hungry to include the community that’s what’s Tim Meadows all about right and that’s what these events are all about so I think I think we’re doing pretty good so far and I see how much more collaboration is going to is going to start happening you know just from from these telegram groups and how excited everybody is and and also how cool is that that we have telegram instead all our messages so that the government can hover information are private conversations it’s just it’s amazing we weave I feel sad about the fact that Facebook and all these social media platform orny or Cuban connection you know I honestly have so many thoughts where I say I don’t care if Facebook knows all my information or if they own all my media I just want to be able to share photos of my friends in Argentina and this is the easiest form so how sad is it that we were okay with all of our privacy and information being exploited and people making money off of us just because we’re so starved for human connection so I’m really excited to be able to do the same things we’ve been doing and use the good parts of Technology like social media in a way that it also filled up our pockets and our Spirits you know that is music to my ears thank you so much I’m so glad that I I mean I just just the fact that your video came up right after cryptos news and we’re in this moment have his conversation this is all such beautiful music to my ears and yeah it’s been I mean in my field in the world of Tantra sacred sexuality sexual healing in just the I think the most important thing in my studies in my experience for healing a planet and really saving the Earth is really being instrumental and being conducive to two women Sisterhood and a healthy positive empowering way and actually creating more financial Independence so that women as mothers can have more freedom and power and actual means to make more independent decisions with their bodies with their with their you know how they how much even breastfeeding I mean the most people don’t know that it’s pretty much understood that about 5 years is a typical pre-industrial young length of time to be breastfeeding infants on demand and imagine the kind of infrastructure changes that have to happen for that to be possible in the modern world but if anything’s going to make it happen it’s going to be the fruit of the work that people like you

maybe two years and there’s so much to learn and I found so much healing and in all of these intersections of psychedelics meditation 10 trick work and crypto and it’s it’s so bizarre and no way to talk about technology and evolution and money in the same line that we talked about psychedelics and in self-healing love and all of this to no life force of energy but it is all the same thing it’s it’s just growing us a more compassionate and accepting loving human race you know that’s what it’s all about and at the same time that I’m really excited about all of these blockchain as a vehicle for 4 change I am really concerned about Wi-Fi and radiation and you know of course all of these a chemtrail crazy stuff that we put ourselves through so I’m putting out the intention into calling for more people to get involved in to figure it out other ways to connect the other internet in a way that it’s not so destructive for us and so there’s not some natural solutions and then there’s simple things we can do like turning off wi-fi at night when you go to sleep and self-education on this on this topic but I would love to hear more like I said Solutions and privacy are are something that we are now noticing that we need to work on more at the same time that we develop all these amazing systems right we need to wear we’re kind of like it’s floating and all this magical ways and now we

Cypherpunks, Bitcoin & the Myth of Satoshi Nakamoto by Richard Boase TPP127

In this episode I’m blessed to have a guest spoken word piece by Richard Boase.  Since receiving some seed funding in the form bitcoins earlier this year, I have been on a mission of painfully OVER-due diligence to  catch up to the cryptocurrency revolution. It wasn’t clear to me until I discovered Richard’s article just how much of an intrinsic stake I’ve had in the game, and just how clueless I’d been over the last several years of bitcoin denial. In fact, my own punk and anarchist comrades of the crypto and cypher varieties had arguably already won the revolution in the early 90s that I’ve still been fighting in the streets for to this day.  It’s taken this long for me and the rest of the code-illiterate world to slowy, and perhaps less profitably,  join it.

I was infinitely grateful and intrigued to find Richard’s article because it puts it all into a riveting context and cuts through all of the financial speculative debate about bitcoin’s future, and sheds light on the radical and revolutionary spirit of the cause since the beginning.

Richard also has a great interview on the Let’s Talk Bitcoin podcast that helps clarify matters even more: https://youtu.be/5yZfOOqKnAg

About Richard:

Richard W. Boase, born a Shell Brat under the banner of a monstrous Corporate Petro-Empire in Brunei Dara’salaam on the island of Borneo in the late seventies, is the atypical son of English scholars of linguistics and mathematics and the grandson of allied warriors.

An Uber Taxi Driver working Old London’s winding back streets to scrape a living who once blazed electric live-wire voodoo visions amongst the hot neon jungle of Tokyo’s crazed architecture, he is now no more than a prescient listener and scribe, a tantric craftsman and guide in a global psyche-sphere where Crypto-Buddhist souls drift endlessly around the peer matrices of photovoltaic cells on Terra, Sol Galactica.

He is alone.
