Charles Hoskinson with Bird on Shoulder

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Charles Hoskinson TPP268

Play

In this episode I share words of praise for my favorite hero in the crypto/blockchain space, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson

My Non Verbatim Show Notes:

Coming from a place of bliss

Immune systems thrive on bliss

with all due respect to suffering, sick and dying, which we could all be one of us

podcast could be titled my 2020 crypto investment thesis, heart of it is my crypto crush, bromance with charles hoskinson, who I have been a fan of now since the end of 2017 where I first got interested, made first purchase of ADA, token or coin that operates on the cardano network, a multi stage, multi phase very complex cryptocurrency platform

story for me of what I would call crypto man crush, I don’t have any personal connection to, don’t have any rapport, just putting out these words because this has been my hope, most optimism I have in heart and mind comes from his work, not just him as a thought leader, innovator, genius, mathematician, cryptocurrency serial entreprenuer

he is a node in his own network, simply another node, by design

I’m spending some time here not to “shill” a crypto token” this is not investment advice, it is an opportunity for me to express from the depths of my soul what I find to be the most optimistic, not just investment opportunity this is for the soul and spirit of liberation of humanity, the spirit of liberation from slavery exploitation abuse tyranny, the core beliefs, principles, values of any freedom loving,

the most universal aspiration is to be free form tyranny, so the study of human freedom is an infinite study, for me the ultimate current embodiment if I chose one person who is a founder of an ensemble cast of geniuses, with the spirit and ethics of liberation at their hearts

what has captured my heart and imagination it goes back, the story , to put it in sequence

why have I arrived at the pinnacle of my techno optimism resting on the shoulders of CH and company

why have I arrived, how

sequence of events goes back to my religions scholarship of bitcoin once I began to realize gains, rabbit hole, andreas antonopolis, the bitcoin podcast, omar bam, cryptos news

shy about exchanges, had to go through multiple currency swaps to get to an alt coin you may want exposure to, the story begins with my other crypto crush bromance, crypto bobby, he and omar bam, he’s the one who’s explainer videos got me to feel comfortable and confident, in understanding how to do professional trading on an exchange, not just buy, actually getting some understanding of how to place different kinds of orders, move from one currency to another, do the math, its really intimidating, scary, can lose nerve, lose mind, lose money

I was very hesitant, but crypto bobby was the sheperd, dangerous places, sharks and whales will eat your lunch, so much respect to him

his best investment of 2017 of all the icos, was his investment in this thing called cardano, I was at the time, I’m just gonna buy whatever crypto bobby has in his portfolio, because he knows more than me

vegas/lottery money, threw I tiny bit at what he was recommending, most of hit has been under water, maybe I glanced at the white papers, but the thing that got my attention was, easy sell, CH co-founder of ethereum, not just a script kitty sitting in a basement, copying a white paper, not vapor ware, not just the ico bubble

of the shit coins that will never come back to life, cardano, not just the project, the personality, the captivating charisma, not like a false charisma, like a ted talk charisma, watching the CH ted talk, between that and what’s called the white board videos

breaks down 1st, 2nd, generation blockchains, how they’ve reached multiple deal breaking scalability, governability, interoperability

in the trenches, very experienced, developing a platform play, as they say in crypto trading world, this is a blockchain that smart contracts and applications using the backbone will be able to build on top of

bitcoin basically just transferring value back and forth, you could be on top of that, but lacks functionality to run more complex computations, stories of transactions can’t be processed

ethereum, infinite complex programmability, on the base layer

at the peak of the market in 2017, thanks to getting served up by crypto bobby watching the ted talk, the white board videos, in a position to take some of my bitcoin wealth, which was not a lot, I wasn’t mining in 2010, I’ve barely been above water, shaken out a few times, weathered the storm, it’s been about what you have loyalty and allegiance to, difference between investing and trading

white board videos give the lay person, I’m not a math, not cryptographer, not a computer scientist, just a power user, copy and paste code, web admin, designer, marketer, more about the graphical user interface, will hire a programmer if I have to go deeper than that, enough understanding for the white board video, but some was going over my head,

now a few years later, studying to catch up on this movement, watched again recently, its so deeply profound, years later I can actually in real time, everything he’s staying clicks for me, I could be enamored with several other competing projects, I put skin in the game because I liked him, this project was really intelligently evolving, learning from triumphs and failures of bit coin and ethereum

more peer reviewed, more academic, not move fast and break things, actual governments, actual economies, critical infrastructure can be built on

he’ll be an exalted position, diplomacy, academic rigor

that’s what sold me, I didn’t continue to buy all the way down, put skin in the game, everything underwater, project in stages of development, other projects crashed and burned and sped ahead, classic story of the tortoise and the hare

I don’t feel a personal connection through the socialbility of the internet personalities of any of the other founders of competing projects, that’s why I can say, I can list off not the selling points of buying cardano or ada to put in investment portfoilio, if I will give any advice, if you want to feel optimistic, about the future of this planet and promise of crypto anarchy, wise, not juvenile, intelligent mature anarchism

talk to your financial advisor about if, when, why, how, what, where cardano fits in your portfolio

I see opportunity to learn from a master of the political economy of the planet earth, a personable master, synthesis of wayne and garth in one person

down to earth, approachable, entertaining, fun, human

unsocialable tech geniuses who don’t make an effort, they just don’t have the calling, the personal, not connecting with people

not a politician or technocrat, it’s just a master

if you want to learn to be a ninja or samurai, there is a sacred devotional traditional classical meritocratic relationship to have with a master

if you’re student and don’t know where to start to understand cryptography, financial technology, the stock market, the systems of government around the world, the international banking system, all the digital fabric that stitches all this together, where am I gonna go to learn all that stuff

all of my crypto mentors have made the difference of me being a beggar or me having options

respect, admiration, meritocracy of those who’ve been further down a path

why do I sing these praises so much, I’ve watched the youtube videos, have subscribed and been a fly on the wall during his AMA

incentivized test net, more reasons to love

I wake up every day feeling optimistic being in a world where the principles represented by CH are being pushed forward against all forces of evil, fraud, manipulation, so long as he remains in good standing with this ethics, I’m going to say that, without having met in person, here’s why I’m so thrilled about his work

as much as any of my tantra mentors, he’s my financial guru mentor

he’s a farmer and gardener, that’s going to excite me very much knowing that he has that balance and that connection to the earth, also mushroom worship, into medicinal plants, giggles about psychdelics, advocate of medicinal psilocybin, fan of Paul Stamets, checking of serious boxes for me, pro shamanic liberation, most important of all things, being connected to the earth through farming

if there was on person on earth where someone should gift him a permaculture design course

there have got to be more permaculture educated crypto millionaries in the world, there’s not enough, the fact that he has a farm, grows vegetables, retrofitting his zones, I just can’t imagine, he hasn’t mentioned it once so far yet

I could go on forever about applications of blockchains in permaculture designs, that’s what makes me very optimistic, thanks to these guys, not to many other geeks and crypto millionaries have their hands in the soil, low hanging fruit to turn on to permaculture design if they aren’t already into it, that’s very exciting to me

you could be steeped in sustainability, green tech, radical politics and maybe only barely bump into permaculture without having gone down that rabbit whole, everyone who’s all about bitcoin, satoshi rabbit whole, permaculture is more profound and empowering, not to compare, the enthusiasm that permaculturist have its very similar

words of vin armani, invest in the revolution and get rich doing it

its not about speculation, whales manipulating markets, still in 90percent speculation, love CH because the price is the currency is not the metric to be watching, it’s the amount of usage of the platform by developers, by apps

not going into why I choose

if you ask me what crypto to I have the most allegiance to, it’s not bitcoin, its not ethereum, it’s cardano because of the love I have for CH, he’d have to have a severe fall from grace for that to change

who are you going to be a student of who is a master of the world we live in and the future that’s about to unfold

you’re gonna want to have options with digital privacy, financial privacy, security, intelligence, all these things are being accessorized within cardano, intelligence behind it, rigorous academic approach, battle hardened, test with dick waving ego maniacal rich douche bag hate, he’s been hated on because he’s a maverick, I respect that, I salute him,

I hope you can catch up on why it is important to study this man, of all the people you were forced to study in k-12 you studied a lot of men, I don’t respect or like or appreciate many of them

one thing I was trained to do was study men, and this man is worth, whatever semesters of school you had to study somebody in history, whatever it was, take that approach, this modern genius renaissance man, take that approach to it to understanding his perspective and analysis, very accessible, does amas if you want to ask him something jump on his ama, subscribe to his youtube channel

I didn’t get in early enough or put in enough to be rich from bitcoin, but so infinitely wealthy in terms of hope and invigoration

the revolution that never happened when iw as a teenager, the anarchist revolution that never happened, the streets of the WTO, glamorizing machismo form of anarchism, juvenile

cypherpunks were writing the code to elegantly subvert the entire system

I was fighting at the lowest point of leverage, fighting cops in the street because they will break your skull, break bones, deport you, put you in prison, I barely got out, times where I barelyi got out with my bones intact, my share of arrests, evasions, escaped

I’m not putting down protest, all of the screaming, chanting, protest signs, I should have spent at least half the energy to study the subversive potential of hacking, and crypto anarchism, and the cypher punks, I didn’t I’m late, I’m not one of the rich people, I’m wealthy now having studied it having it transform my life

love that I feel for satoshi nakamoto, I think it’s the heart and soul of Dave Klieman and tretchery of Craig Wright

the people who want to believe in benevolent satoshi, I’d like to know more about dave kleiman, what made him tick, do some investigative journalism around that, its sorely lacking

I have not been satisfied by the crypto journalism coverage of the works of dave kleiman

how is there not any breadcrumb trail of his code, of his previous work being studied, total bermuda triangle over this guy

back to love and wealth

so much passion and optimism and love and freedom and empowerment, more empowerment than I ever go from any other drudgery of anarchism that was all utopian pipe dream bullshit, drama, demoralizing net lose of youth, vitality, no return on investment

love for satoshi, I hope the heart and soul is the benevolence

maybe I’m projecting that love onto somebody, the love I would be, as a fan, if people want to love tony robbins, I guess I love him, he’s transformed my life, enjoying podcast, and lectures for years

for me CH is like the love I have for tony robbins, and absorbs the love I have for satoshi, he of all people is carrying on satoshi’s vision, not just satoshi, the vision is the cypherpunks, egalitarianism through math, beyond any of the countless people

this goes back a very very long time, liberation through math, that is a beautiful study

india, the math and science of islam, so much beauty to behold in the history of the best of how math has been used

john zerzan would not be a huge fan of this meditation but when used wisely for the benefit of liberation

new profound respect for rules without rulers, I love andreas too so so much

the projected love I have for satoshi, I love andreas, that love of those who are your mentors, gurus, masters, teaching you helping you navigate the best of the spirit of cryptography, math and cryptoanarchism

who has the most integrity, who’s the most mature, who perseveres hold virtue against all criticism and all odds, and be so personable as to earn the respect of the elites of the world, from financial to governments to most destitute

all stand to gain from the leveling of the playing field

studied him from afar, choose what carter thomas said, brought me a ton of appreciation for, anybody could have told me you could invest in tech stocks, I was an eco anarchist, anarcho primitivist, peak of idealism, in teens and 20s that would be like selling my soul, selling out to have anything to do with the financial system

there’s a million things I’m hypocritical about in my purchases, what I let slide in my supply chain ethics, but the idea of I could just invest in everything that gets people rich in the world the shit that rapes the planet and is build by slaves

beholden to cardano, being able to have whatever money you don’t put into vices and give to the man, whatever you can pay yourself with, give yourself a salary, you give money to grocery store, tax man, how about salary to yourself, percentage of salary

trying to catch up on the foolishness of not having money, investible wealth, there wasn’t an option

I’m never gonna touch owning any stocks because it’s all evil, that narrative, partially true, more nuanced, you could invest in ethical corporations

money phobic conditioning doesn’t serve you, didn’t serve me

what matters now it’s possible to dare I say have a 100% ethical vehicle to deploy capital, potential for there to be a return on investment, for me I’m interested in more than a financial gain, I’m interested in participating

one of my desktop background images, ch and friends planting a tree at second anniversary party of cardano, how much closer to my heart can you get

the opus of a man

to have warm feelings of adoration and respect someone who is a master and teacher

I want to say, if you’re thinking about killing yourself right now, binge watch andreas and ch, and you’ll never think of killing yourself again, you’ll be so thrilled to be a live in this moment of opportunity

this revolution, its been the most healing thing for my heart, my heart has bled, it’s been a bleeding heart for a long time, bleeding since I was raped as child, bleeding so long for a revolution that didn’t betray me exhaust me or deplete me

I am getting well and wealthy and healed by a revolution of crypto anarchist math geniuses

I would befriend the geeks, learn from them, kept them close, respected their talents, watched their wizardry

not going to be shaken out, I will have strong hands

enthusiasm for life, happens when you understand crypto

ch was significant factor in that extremely important chapter in the history of crypto anarchy, financial technology

I love ethereum but I love cardano more

a blossoming, an evolution of that

it includes and transcends, ken wilbur,

ch represents inclusion of and transcendence of cypherpunk legacy, geeks behind the internet, bitcoin, ethereum, hopefully this ever evolving and intelligently designed, big tent, compliance, scalability, governance, high transaction throughput, security, privacy, identity

reality of whole planet of different jurisdictions

masterminding, not a lone as he has done, financing research, research based approach, incorporating cryptographers of the world, mature, responsible fashion to where I don’t just put my money into this project, I put my heart and soul as much as I can say I was transformed by tony robbins, love him, am a fan, recommend him

if I get in certain funk, bam, tony robbins hour of power, it’s a resource that’s always there, not saying put your life savings, go in debt, take out a loan, sell your house, try to chase this penny stock, not what I’m saying

admiration, respect, looking up to, being role modeled by

not juvenile in a naive way, but in the fuck yeah I want to emulate your success, the purist adoration, it doesn’t mean they’re perfect or a god, you see them perform, they’re a master of something I respect and want to achieve in

the money is shiggles on top of the thrill of being a fan of the heros of the space

if you’re an adult you can bet some of your wealth accordingly

seeing people you believe are bad asses and what to emulate what they’re doing

he doesn’t have to be perfect, just willing to admit faults, be open to criticism, transparent

anchoring into heart space saying prayers and well wishes, and support, spiritual warrior crystal grid pranic healing, purple breathing send a lot of love to this man, understand him, I beg you

what he has published in his works, what he’s trying to do for you and the world

project love and healing , positive energy around him, as he ascends, as a master

his path of jedi ship if you will, he’s being forged in a fire of toxic astral sabotage and counterintelligence, nasty demonic bullshit

if you’re a tantric you have your sex magic rituals, put this man on your list of people to pray for, bless him with the orgasmic energy of eternal goddess bliss through kundalini awakenings

absolute honor, dignity, reverence and respect

we have this feeble frail imperfect tissue flesh animal human form but when we claw and dance our way to our highest self, climbing kundalini shakti energy, higher selves, godhood, goddesshood of ourselves and our beloved

invite the avatar of this man into the astral realms and armor him with all of the divine love that you can

How the Plantrika Dr. Yalila Espinoza is Healing the Soul of Crypto TPP192

Play

Yalila PicIn this episode I’m joined again by Dr. Yalila Espinoza for an exploration of her medicine journeys into the heart of the cryptocurrency and blockchain movement.

I first hired Yalila to advise on an experimental healing ceremony design back in 2013 after discovering her great works online. Now over 5 years later, we’ve remained colleagues and friends in the shamanic space, and have done two previous podcast episodes, it turns out we’ve also been deeply immersed in crypto-psychedelia.

It was an exquisite gift to be able to have her on the show this time to talk about this aspect of our life journeys that we hadn’t yet connected on, and see the many emergent properties of mutual understanding and shared analysis.

She’s been doing some amazing work to bring sacred wisdom teachings, ceremony, ritual, and other shamanic modalities into the the heart and soul of the crypto movement. Knowing she has stepped up in this way feels like a new multi-dimensional super heroine has arisen to build bridges from the amazon jungle to silicon valley, wall street, and beyond.

Please visit her website at:
https://inner.one

About Yalila:
With this unique moment of cultural evolution, Espinoza finds herself at the center of an ecosystem where powerful business and technology influencers are asking for healing and wholeness.  While working in hospitals within a medical model and then conducting her PhD research on wellness and healing, she noticed the gap in the delivery of health services and the chasm between her own esoteric spiritual offerings and the specific needs of thought leaders. Espinoza found that her clients, while pioneering new businesses and technologies tended to suffer from burnout, depression, and disease. She realized transforming the human and machine networks of the world, like the Internet, must begin with physical, emotional, and mental transformation of the self. So in 2017, Espinoza founded InnerNet, an integrated wellness advisory offering online programs, one-on-one coaching, and retreats designed to optimize leaders’ potential to realize their missions with creativity, clarity, and compassion.

couple of times before please go to my website and look up you’ll be the Espinoza you will find some very deep it’s a very deep Rabbit Hole added to the things we’ve gotten into in the past with Shamanism and healing work and now we’re going to be talking about healing and Shamanism through technology and through blockchain and all really new and exciting developments that to have have cut the world taking the World by storm and we are Kindred Spirits in our approach to I would say the the promise of of a decentralized more mycelial type of networking architecture for governance and for autonomy in for communities in in having that deep lens of shamanic practitioner work and in Journey work we can I would say really resonating really commiserate on the need for a a bottom-up approach to solving the world’s problems in in and starting with the financial problems in the capital distribution problems startup funding problem venture capital for women Founders for people who are doing philanthropic work there’s a huge need for this and also there’s a lot of people who are outspoken psychedelic Warriors within the crypto space I know that the anarchapulco conference has a a sort of there their opportunities for for for ceremonial work that that I’ve heard about and there’s also a crypt of psychedelic conference that’s happened at least once already if I don’t know if it will win next one is being planned but I had to have some some conversations with folks around that already so I’m looking forward to catching up with you you Lila and please tell us all about what you been up to and I love to just hear that they love story of you you’re you’re recording of the blockchain tech I love hearing about how people you know get seduced and then become Believers yes thank you so much for having me and saw the listeners I look forward to connecting and whatever way is in the cosmic alignment so it’s interesting because I’ve reflected in the past week about my journey with in Shamanism psychedelics and now technology because I’m giving a talk actually later today in San Francisco and I I looked at how you know focusing on the Life Energy centers of our body and how I started off an academic world in the medical model working in hospitals really focused on health and wellness and what does that mean for humans in in this part of our Evolution and became dissatisfied and then went into you could say that the third Energy Center of power and when it is Shamanism and in terms of you know how energy is used in in healing and really the base of a believe in Shamanism is around at the power to tap into these energies to know them to work with them and be in service to our community and so the power of the light in the dark and shamans choosing which way they want to search time is it really the the key difference so I went into a long journey in Shamanism personally 3 Anjali and going down into the previant jungle and having my first three months at Journey with Ayahuasca and tobacco and it’ll in isolation very intense journey and that really well 13 years ago was the start of my connection with technology and Consciousness I realize that now reflecting back because in that dream journey and isolation I came out of that we call them deetta’s I called him so much Journeys and out of that three months you know one might expect you and I are I love myself and I found God or if you know found my purpose in life what I asked that came out of that Journey with was the importance of finding a way to bridge traditional Shamanism with contemporary technology and that for me to be in the world and actually thrive in the simplest way what I needed was my iPhone in one hand and my pipe into back one another and with those two technologies I would be able to to learn how to reconnect with the soul of technology so so then I didn’t think much of it at the time but really then it led me to the second Energy Center and all-around sexuality and sensuality I did my PhD research on that and when it’s my own Journey around that piece of of my healing that needed to happen and then was serving as a counselor and a Healer around sexuality and psychedelics which maybe cuz I was speaking at Horizons in New York on the on my research study and that’s what I met in 2013 the sum of the blockchain folks and one of them in particular who is hosting me we became good friends and he led me into the folks who actually work Hill from the co-founders of aetherium in the start-up projects that were happening in your cat at that time is pretty early 2013-2014 and I can’t I didn’t think much of think much of the technology I just didn’t have that background so I couldn’t understand it but was fascinating is through my serving in an offering psychedelic Journeys Inn in South America to these folks in the blockchain world I was actually able to see how the mechanism of this technology in ceremony so my first taste of it was actually seen it you know hallucinating or altered state and seeing the connection somehow the minds of these blockchain folks are so strong I think it generally in the tech world that it was such a was so invigorating and an exciting because that I could actually asked him to show me you know quantum physics and mathematical equation I could see it and so then okay that I went to you no more of the written information and actually learning about the code and and seeing how and if practical way they would this information was being ground within the blockchain technology and then all the incredible positives that came out of this technology could be the foundation of a whole new like paradigm shift in the way that values is exchanged so that was really exciting to me and you know this this took me a good for years to learn I’m a slow learner and one way but I also like to learn deeply so I was learning it experientially and then your written material talking to a lot of the blockchain founders of Neo various companies and then he knows Tina and action and actually you know getting some of these apps and in learning me know what they can actually do and going to a lot of conferences watching Converses and and that just got really caught up in just the excitement you know this is a space that is just draws a lot of innovative minded future thinkers and innovators and you know just a sense of camaraderie and supporting each other and I couldn’t believe how welcomed I was as coming from academics in healing they they respected me and I respected them and I was able to learn how to you no make that bridge from my world to their worlds and really getting excited about the exchange of our information and so I just was seduced by I not only they technology but the people that were drawn to it and the dedication to changing our our economic Paradigm & in the way that we set up all kinds of you know housing and you know land and food and it is just so incredible so you know here we are 5 years later and I’m still right in the mix of it and you’re really excited now about virtual reality and Ai and how that can be bridged into the ceremonial space that’s that’s my journey so far in NFL well that was so amazing and I just was having chills and I could just cinematically follow along and when you got to the point of when you said you were able to see how the technology Works in ceremony that was so deeply moving and so beautiful because it’s such a multi-dimensional phenomenon and if in it’s so multi-layered into to appreciate I think I I made this comment to a friend is all it was a very very high level developer in his face and he and I I just made a joke in a recent podcast with him I said the Bitcoin makes Bitcoin makes crop circles looks like look like a play school set you know in terms of the degree of multidimensionality that goes into it and it is it is such a I mean and Andreas Antonopoulos recently and in one of his podcast video presentations and interviews he he said that when he read the Bitcoin first year of the Bitcoin white paper but then when you actually read the code it was for him basically like a symphony and he was brought to tears when he could understand the genius of it and it’s so apt for a for psychedelic journey to be able to ask for this for this field of of wisdom and information and Math and Science and Technology and code for it to just presented itself and dance in your mind for you in that place of ceremony where anything’s possible anything can be visualized and so I just think that is so beautiful on the inside knowing that you also this is really mind-blowing for me to knowing that you have this I wasn’t aware so much so basically we had already been talking and both of us had had this sort of like part of our subconscious basically beginning to be initiated into the space but we weren’t really because it wasn’t of our direct backgrounds it wasn’t an instant sort of I guess it didn’t click instantly for me I was explain how work and I thought it was cool and I was like yeah that’s internet money for anarchists that’s awesome you know but I wasn’t an investor I wasn’t a coder and it took a while once I went through you know the second Energy Center sexuality and and it was beat the psychedelics it actually showed me the importance of myself dropping my energy down into the first root Center where you no money safety you know security that whole place at a lot of healers you know maybe feel uncomfortable in or don’t have the opportunity to be in that often that I was able to really staying in this Center and part of it was that I was getting paid in crypto you know years ago from some of my clients who are you know the pioneers and in blockchain and I didn’t understand what that meant at the time I was like okay I guess they’re very kind and helping me open up my first Bitcoin wallet etcetera and I didn’t even understand it at the time and effort to understand it because you know what that meant for me and how to do the exchanges and things like that so I started off and makes it more The Surreal level of the fit if you say mathematics and physics and seeing how matters to me is a version of God of that Godlike energy and seeing how it comes down into the code it is beautiful really need and you see it yeah I totally agree and you know that I don’t know if you how big of a Terrence McKenna fan you are thinking of becoming more of a Dennis McKenna fan over the years but something that I loved about so endearing to me about about a lot of his talks was when he talked about the feminine Spirit of internet technology and how excited he was that we would be able to eventually use things like VR to give people immersive training or sort of it be able to create a visual language like the Ayahuasca experience where we could start to really understand each other better through through a universal language that is symbolic but also based on objects and colors in math and it to me this is such a fulfillment of that feminine Force coming through a lot of people who are you know he would always say that you go to a Silicon Valley startup office and it’s all these microdosing you know acid heads with hair down to their ass and I’d like to hear I know there was a time when you were when you were when you were starting to talk about Silicon Valley and bringing the medicine the same to you go and bring the medicine to those who are really reshaping reality from that level of of power of Technology do you want to just talk more about maybe without disclosing anything confidential of course just some of the some of the before and afters you’ve had the makeovers that you’ve had with some of the tech Geeks and how they’ve how they’ve been able to be massaged by that the medicine Spirits have become to Adorn one of them did gently say to me if they feel it’s not a lie to myself that is that a techie kid learning to love that part in myself and and and also honoring that you know every person is different in their enemies that divers field and that there are some common patterns that I have seen and the fact that I was given the directions psychedelics to serve a particular Community around the you know very influential and Powerful leaders in the text field that I’ve been able to track and and see how they actually lead differently in and really the the number one thing is the realization that the transformation is starts with the inner transformational journey and so even having the giving themselves that time you know few days it’s you sink into a different space in their mind right so it’s not like I have a container and say okay everyone thinking about your project Source. You know you know this go back to your family history and I want you to cry or something not at all what I was seeing is that the synthesis the stamina in the dedication in the Brilliance of these of these folks and that it really good-hearted people and that they were passionate about what they were doing and giving their mind that’s almost like the ceremonial space giving their mind a space to allow other information that may not be in their Consciousness you know at the time she come through and that’s where you hear about folks you know even the microdosing folks if they go to Peru and sit with Anna Ayahuasca Circle and I you know ask a question of it a problem that they’ve had you know mathematical equation or some something on their project they can’t quite figure out and that giving up space to have the different kind of intelligence guide them in in discovering a piece of the puzzle and so I find that you know when in general folks being very compassionate and curious and how these intelligence come together the other thing is in terms of their leadership is that once they are hard intelligence because that’s really a lot of the psychedelics the sacred psychedelics are helping us to tap into that heart energy into once they are in love energy seeing that the influence that makes and how they engage with their team member so you know more of a knowledgement that is it you know they’re all together in this project and higher level and it really honoring people for where they’re at in the heart of leadership is is learning how to inspire people to grow within the company within their teams within the project until having more patients and you know seeing the bigger picture so it’s not all about profit and yes of course I’m surprised and seeing that if if there’s a dedication to the why of their company and of the people that are there then that why and the purpose of the collective purpose actually creating more success and inflow with within the within the company so that’s one pattern also that I’ve seen Etsy the other that the third one is is around these texts Psychonauts of the learning how to bridge technology and spirituality which is always been one of my big passions and I didn’t really know how it so they’ve taught me a lot and in how this connection can unveil itself and in many ways and then coming from their religious background or spiritual background and then how they think of of math and in quantum physics in relation to a fascist like it blows my mind you know when they’re talking to me about this cell this Ray this field of the interplay between the Divine and the and form and structure and yeah I didn’t mean to cut you out there to say I wanted to make that mention so please continue the inner transformation and their their passion and purpose and then the second with the love more love and compassion for all the teams and and then that the more philosophical connection here that those those really stand out for me folks that were with me five years ago are still with me so I actually am able to track you know connect with the Divine or connect with the love Center I mean it cuz it’s not that simple everyone is sort of you’re learning a different piece and and so really what I love to do is trade space that people can share these pieces with each other and in how that actually informs that transition for their next step you know when whatever fits a personal life or professional life but it is still fascinating to me and I’m so very you know intimately woven in with with the baseballs beautiful well knowing now even more haven’t you said all of this which is so beautiful and invigorating and exciting and I just I’m so I’m so glad we’re just In This Moment having this conversation because it has been I feel like I’m it’s been extremely painful and in in triggering for me to to look at the shadow of what’s happening in this in this space which is you know I’m going to ask you to bear with me for a minute while I kind of organize my thoughts on how to how to bring this Dimension to the conversation in a in a good way I’m going to Omit using that the names of any individuals that I will not going to call anybody out or or put any putting it in the spotlight to anyone but but it’s it’s what would what I can see if we step back from from a more shamanic perspective is that there is a in absolute crisis of hyper toxic masculine Behavior that’s creating these extremely almost mythical an archetypal Wars of the Gods and end DIYs always think it’s a play on words to think about how Davis and Davies in in the in and they can talk about the devil’s right so there is it’s almost like The Vedic battles in the sky to me these genius mathematicians cryptographers programmers and them their armies of now the Speculator there’s all these high frequency trading robot armies that are trolling the warring factions and so it’s kind of like if you were to open The Vedas and you see them describing these battles of cities in Disguise and all of his alien foreign hyper advanced technology and the sort of drama playing out and the people on Earth are watching this drama and just trying to trying to create some record of it and most of it is just completely unintelligible to them cuz it’s so far out and so Advanced and almost seems like there’s just this war of the AstroWorld coming down and and duking it right above Earth dropping debris from that that Astro Battlefield and things just like falling on people’s heads and then people just scratching their heads trying to make sense of it so you have the bestest what’s coming to my mind when I think about these these programmers and their projects and their their Venture funding and all of these different puppeteers of technology in this battle between open source and closed source and regulated and unregulated in public and private blockchain Jaden and if it would it would it all is sort of sort of this rhyme of history is just these patriarchal warlord and we would calm just really do she really kind of integrated uninvolved masculine guys who are who are gorgeous and I’m just they’re just getting more and more narcissistic and sociopathic and they’re tweeting and and the technology of social media creates this really kind of Twisted Echo chamber and when I when I bring this up sometimes people will say of you know you’re trying to use psychedelics in ceremony and Shamanism as a Panacea and you know it’s not a magic pill and you know but I just keep saying like I think I need to hear these men do that family work and be brought into a ceremony where do certainly the ones that are that are just creating like threatening to just nuclear meltdown of all the cryptos in the opposing camps and just using their stashes of Mega you know stashes of of Bitcoin to flood the market and to manipulate as tactical that what they call the hash worse but that just happened in probably the hash words just knocked bitcoin price and 1/2 they’re just waving around these lightsabers and in in digging into the charts and and I one waiting for the sort of like trumpeting angels to come in and bring in the Davies you know the akalis in a Durga is going to come in and start grabbing these These are is Zeno by the by the Scruff of their neck and in and actually intervene so I’m wondering I know that’s a lot but anybody who is his familiar with yoga Tantra me all the scriptures that the talk about these epic battles or even from the Western perspective that the mythical Gods fighting you know this is not new and what seems to be the promise of the Shakti movement of Tantra and the Psychedelic feminist movements coming out of their group that you’re involved with there’s got to be some maternal wisdom brought to these boys and their toys you know so that she take it from there I totally resonate with this the Epic War analogy because it is real is that I’ve been to blockchain conferences and meetups in cities all over the states and and you’re up and and what really carries me through and I feel so fortunate somehow I have this eternal optimism and I certainly see the shadow I see the darkness 10 gauge with it and I’m still very optimistic and I think it’s really in my own connection with the sacred psychedelics in that they’re continually I feel like they got my back and they’re continually raising me up and and encouraging me and motivating me a stay steady with in the turmoil and I feel like for a lot of us and probably folks listening that this is part of our role is to learn how and these These are at War like an energy battle that we are centered and we emanate that that love and not always loving everyone per se you know that’s around us and in this these toys with our boys with toys and I do feel I can honestly say neutral when I meet them and I and I just said luck and I just what I’m doing is I’m like an anthropologist and I’m watching am seeing how they’re engaging with the but that the people around them and I start where people are at right so when I’m speaking to some of these folk is not like I think he would be good for you to do family systems work and come to this you know come to Peru like I would never say that I start or people are at I’m like what motivates you right now and you know once the trust his is built by and continually is is building and there’s a softening that happened so you know for me in 5 years in and I I do believe that there is a beautiful sense of respect for each other and trust this building and I’m watching where this energy takes us play so I what I can get really involves is the patience and perseverance and faith and that this is you know way bigger than me I’m being in service and being directed by these other intelligences along with my own you don’t be Discerning and where to actually Channel my energy and then I’m patient and it’s been tough you know I really wanted to get into some of these blockchain meetings and and I have actually is sometimes I’m like okay let’s talk about the let’s talk about how you know the technology is actually had of our human consciousness level as well as our laws right so you know how can we catch those pieces up to the level that technology to actually maximize the benefit of it and then you know how can we actually expire is that Founders and CEOs and and developers to to build that projects that are noble that have elevated intentions that that is a sense of good for all I do feel it’s possible yeah I totally agree I Kevin this is the most thrilling and exciting development in my entire life for sure if not in the history of the battle of Good and Evil on Earth that’s I really feel like it and you can see it it brings out the best and can sometimes bring out the worst but but really even those who would be considered more more super villains now in the space the lot of them started out as Jedis training humbly with Yoda it you know so they all have that imprint of that desire to do good eyebrows really very few people who I think are are fundamentally irredeemable I mean I don’t know if I feel better that way about anybody in the darker the shadow is the more potential there is to bring that medicine from those places so I agree with you and then I fly it’s I guess it’s easy for me to say or easier for me to say in some senses because I am a white mostly cis-male and so I don’t experience some of the author of out of the exclusion and in sometimes bigotry but at least at least Prejudice and you know it was through the women in crypto track at the crypto invest Summit in La last year that I discovered things like there’s only four percent of female CEOs in the US at least and then only 2% of venture funding goes to women Founders and that studies have proven that female executives are more profitable so whether you’re a feminist or not you’re leaving money on the table if you’re in any kind of a position of power in the business world in the investment world to not be creating more balance in in that in that space so I guess I’d like to ask psychedelic feminism Financial feminism women in crypto women in blockchain do you find yourself a building strong Sisterhood networks in circles amidst all of the other boys with toys as he said to align myself with very brilliant women in the field and be there and so we’re learning with each other and what’s just so inspiring is that some of these clients who are in their late 20s early 30s forging ahead and they sell I don’t know how they do it but they just have this determination and and also feminine ways of going through these hurdles in their in their workplace and them in the company’s and let me know some of them Founders and dealing with the hiring of a lot of that males and and and how that that plays out in the power struggles and they just they have such Grace and I just witness them you know managing it all in a way that’s it really inspiring and stay and then when they’re also going through these psychedelic Journeys I see that they just become more and somebody’s determined and focused and incompetent and and you know they’re also patients over time I see them gain their respective of their colleagues and you take a couple years of storming and and then there’s this is kind of settling that happens and so I I am extremely inspired by the women in blockchain in particular and just wants to be in service to them in any way I can so that they can continue to forge ahead also well on that note I would say we should definitely spend the rest of this our here just having you tell us all about more in detail what it is that you provide and what you’re offering and what your projects are now we got I think this was a good sort of philosophical overview and Andre connection for you and me to to get to get caught up in the space but I really would like to hear more and maybe we can also I guess we can go for as long as you are available at today and in this timeframe to talk about your projects and introduce what you’re doing with your hair with your new your new Ventures and and really make this more of a of a promotional pitch for the remainder promotional pitch for me that’s it really exciting right now is I would love to connect with folks who are working in the VR AI space and are interested in psychedelics not only interested but wanting to create platforms where people can engage in these different fields at virtually and so I know it’s happening I am in San Francisco right now I’m going to meet some some folks in the field tonight and for anyone who’s listening that I would just appreciate a shout out and I’m please connect with me that info info a 10.1 i n n e r o n e because I I really interested in collaborating I would love to work on a team whether it’s already clean a project that’s happening right now or someone wants start one I just have so many ideas about how this could coming to that material in the world and I know a lot of folks in the you know blockchain developers as well as healing practitioners and really wanting to be a bridge between these worlds in and connect folks who can contribute to a project like this so that’s my first pitch in terms of concrete offerings right now I think my two favorite people in the world now that had I met through the blockchain space are this Penelope and America they are the Cyber code Twins and their East LA born and raised Latina women in Tech who have taken the World by storm they’ve got TED Talks they have been winning hackathons and they have I think one of the things they developed together with second virtual reality drug and alcohol rehabilitation immersive experience for people who can’t afford to go to like Celebrity Rehab and that’s one application I don’t know what their personal interest is necessarily in psychedelic Shamanism however they seem to be very open-minded and they are 8 leaving One Like a White House award or something like that they’re just absolutely storming the charts of the women in crypto and I’ll send you a link to one of their TED talks but yeah I know that there it would probably be really good allies in that and not space I just wanted to mention them and then yeah go on please continue practical way the internet is offering three different project and the 1st is out there called dinner one Retreats and so these are live 225 day Retreats held in beautiful places for folks to get back to their vital bodies and be rejuvenated by nature to these are wellness retreats and you know cluding Mayo massage and Sound by sand yoga and meditation life coaching and team-building exercises and then some of the in South America do include Ayahuasca and someone Mexico include psilocybin so those are those Retreats and then there is an online program it’s called zero to one building blocks to Wellness and it is I was here I consider it more of like a integration platform for people so that they can continue harvesting the the fruit of what comes out of these lab Retreats or vice a versa can be a good preparation for Allegra tree and it’s focusing on daily Wellness practices and it’s interesting after how many years in the Psychedelic world I’ve actually gone back to the basics and I feel that you know it’s wonderful to be in a journey and see all kinds of amazing things and we still are in bodies in this lifetime in this earth and that I’m going back to you what we are drinking and eating our sleeping near so many books speakers that focus on this and a night it’s because it’s so essential it’s in so really the program going back to the basics and I just reminding us to be but I guess being mindful of our daily practices so that’s the 0 to 1 and then there’s another piece that is it’s actually new and it’s it’s pretty exciting I’m working with a group in Europe and it’s called Legacy Ventures and we’re going to be offering Retreats that actually is facilitated by many different facilitators and shamans from around the world and and so I’m just one of them one of many and offering Retreats on the difference element so have a 1 focus on fire and having fire ritual what does that mean in our lives and in her a lot of these folks are in our Business Leaders CEOs and and then another Retreat focus on the water and the Earth in the air and then that sacred Center so that’s just starting this year and it’s it’s really exciting for me to be cooperative with other leaders and also I just opening up to the European folk sand and feeling so what is that like and what are they wanting these days and then see the parallels in the differences between the United States and Canada and Mexico so that. In a nutshell is what I’m up to you for this year that is so amazing what we do a push-up real needs everything you’re doing now more than ever and I’m just so thrilled I feel like I’m reading a comic book or something in your just the new Marvel comic book superhero in this of swords and in just adding these new new levels of armor and magic and Empower I can just see I see the the sort of thing I get a better sense of the multi-dimensional warrior Goddess that you have just become an indigenous is so exciting to me to tell me more folks who I don’t have to run into a brick wall trying to explain the the seriousness the timeliness the importance the relevance the you know it’s really really demoralizing and sometimes heartbreaking for me when I get stonewalled it’s not about it’s not about losing out on the opportunity 4000 X Games it’s about losing out on the under this will be some I see it is one of the most rare opportunities in the history of political discourse certainly political economic discourse where the radical libertarian and some people would like to use the word left anymore but definitely from the the libertarian to the anarchist perspective this is one of the first time ever that anything from these camps actually became not just mainstream but was so Superior that it was subversive as a side effect of its superiority to the to the to the disorder let me know Malcolm and Malcolm X I believe said something like if you want it over to the system you have to create a better one system but make the old system obsolete is really what it comes down to so I love it when people talk about the Legacy banking system and the Legacy voting system and it’s like we’re already in this Ann turkel crypto Anarchist future where people from Wall Street are defecting enjoying the Occupy Wall Street movement and bringing their bags of capital with them and you know I love people like I will say the name of Joe Lubin I think he is one of my most beloved and endear real shining examples of coming from a feminine place of problem solving and team building in and you see how his Vibe is really impenetrable to all of the pickings and and browbeating is of the progressive alt masc so cheers to him and into the others and Andria’s and other people who keep out of the drama so yeah before I go too far off into the weeds I want to thank you so much again in to see if you would like to share your your website links and maybe if you would if you have time to just give us a bit of a closing meditation that that brings us all together those who were cryptophobia can those who are crypto douchiest and everything in between let’s let’s all make space for each other around this fire.
