Ethereum Based Automatic Monthly Diversified Open Source Donations

Smart contract funding the development of a diverse set of open source projects monthly. Might this be a future Gitcoin feature? Video editing software. Adobe product alternatives. All sorts of open source projects.

Perhaps with monthly funding, these commercial software alternatives can be better than current industry standard closed source projects.

Perhaps contributors could pledge some Ethereum monthly. They can select from pre arranged sets of open source projects to fund monthly, or allocate it manually themselves.

If 10 million humans pledge on average $5 per month to be allocated to maybe fifteen different open source projects, on average, then open source software could become state of the art and industry standard potentially.

This same model could be applied to non profit or for profit decentralized autonomous organizations.

Cryptocurrency Universal Basic Income Utilizing Bitcoin Cash Tokens?

There is too much poverty on Earth, and basic income cryptocurrencies can help humanity to solve this problem. There are many cryptocurrencies. The following are a few ideas to consider.

Bitcoin Cash has incredibly low fees.Bitcoin Cash enables the creation of SLP (Simple Ledger Protocol) Tokens.

Bright ID is a project that is attempting to prevent Sybil attacks against basic income cryptocurrency recipients.

Keybase ( is an app/website that enables social media proof and blockchain integration (at least to a certain extent).

Bright ID may develop to have an experience sort of like Keybase.

Manna is a basic income cryptocurrency.

I will refine these ideas more later. Brainstorming can be useful. After storms, sunshine will often occur. Plants are nourished by water. Rivers increase their flow into oceans.

Perhaps Bright ID can give groups of trusted humans the ability to metaphorically impeach accounts suspected of being Sybil attack accounts.

I really need to research this more. What I am writing here is a preliminary set of ideas.

Manna, a basic income cryptocurrency, was using phone numbers to confirm unique accounts. However, they paused distributions of Manna to new accounts because of issues with this.

The People’s Currency Foundation (that implements Manna) is now Hedge for Humanity.

It is possible that if a legal Trust of some sort is setup to hold dividend paying exchange traded fund, then these dividends can be used to grow the fund and provide a basic income to those receive a basic income cryptocurrency. Funds from such a fund could be used to purchase back and then maybe burn basic income cryptocurrency coins/tokens.

Bitcoin Cash is interesting because those that like Bitcoin Cash tend to believe that the value (and price) of a cryptocurrency is based around its use and utility. If Bitcoin Core fees are relatively high, then those in developing nations cannot utilize it for day to day transactions (if they earn 2 dollars per day, and fees are $1, this is not functional). Bitcoin Core may be useful to those who are willing to pay $.5 to $30 per transaction. Bitcoin Cash fees and (SLP fees) are usually about $.0025 perhaps. Those earning less than 2 dollars per day could in theory utilize Bitcoin Cash for day to day use, and not realistically Bitcoin Core, please correct me if I am mistaken.

Back to basic income cryptocurrencies though, Bright ID in collaboration with Hedge for Humanity can potentially implement basic income cryptocurrencies that can be utilized by hundreds of millions or billions of people.

Perhaps Manna can be converted into a Bitcoin Cash Token, and this could reduce the fees significantly, and also the security of the network (think 51% attacks). Perhaps this is not needed though. This is just one of many ideas to consider.

Bright ID and Manna have the potential to transform all economies on Earth. Bright ID may enable the creation of many competing basic income cryptocurrencies. Perhaps the basic income cryptocurrency with the lowest fees, most liquidity, and most utility will be the most successful.

Universal basic income has the potential to effectively eliminate most all poverty on Earth. Economic possibilities exist now that have never existed in the history of humanity. We have the ability to shape and mold the future based on our actions and behaviors in the present. Abundance is theoretically possible for all 7+ billion humans on Earth. Basic income cryptocurrencies can help us to get there.

Recall-Able Bitcoin Cash Tokens?

Are recall-able Bitcoin Cash Tokens possible so as to enable paying salaries using Bitcoin Cash Tokens and dividend functions?

So, suppose I run a business and I want to auto pay employees with Bitcoin Cash. I create salary tokens for my business, and issue all employees tokens proportional to their salary, 1 token can count as 1 US fiat dollar in monthly salary.

Suppose I have two employees, Jill and Robert. I pay Jill $2000 per month and Robert $1000 per month.

Could I use the Bitcoin Cash Dividend Calculator to send each of them their salary in Bitcoin Cash each month, and recall the tokens without their consent if they quit or are fired from my business?

Through Bitcoin Cash, could I issue a token in some sort of quasi-smart contract that I could recall if Robert or Jill quits or is fired? I might issue 2000 Business Issued Tokens to Jill and 1000 Business Issued Tokens to Robert. Then I would just send $1 worth of Bitcoin Cash as a dividend to all Business Token holders for each Business Issued Token.

This might be more useful when applied to DAO’s, decentralized autonomous organizations, or paying cryptocurrency as salary to hundreds or thousands of employees. Is there another way to accomplish this same idea?

Mental Illness Does Not Literally Exist

How do we know if it is ethical to coerce adults into ingesting certain (psychiatric) drugs that have potentially deadly side effects? How do we know if someone objectively has a mental illness? We cannot because like heresy and un-Americanism, the definition is subjective. How can we know if we are thinking clearly about psychiatry and psychiatric coercion?

Jokes cannot literally be sick. Minds cannot literally be sick. Mental illness is not literally real.

Mental illness does not literally exist. Mental illness might poetically exist as a metaphorical idea. It is like the idea that a sick joke is not literally sick. The brain can literally be sick, like with stroke, neurosyphilis, cancer, and so forth. The “mind”, like a joke, simply cannot literally be sick unless we use language in inaccurate and imprecise ways. This simply matters because many psychiatrists earn money from psychiatric coercion and justify their actions by claiming mental illness is literally real and effectively turns a person into a non-person (an entity that is not capable of making their own decisions). Similar logic was utilized to justify chattel slavery in America hundreds of years ago (black people are three-fifths of a person, which was in the US Constitution).

Psychiatrist Thomas Szasz wrote about 35 books and wrote extensively about the history of and epistemology within psychiatry.

Psychiatrist Thomas Szasz.

Consider learning about the ideas of psychiatrist Thomas Szasz.

He wrote about 35 books. One is called Psychiatric Slavery. Szasz indicated that civil commitment and the insanity defense form the foundations of psychiatric slavery.

He wrote a book entitled Suicide Prohibition: The Shame of Medicine.

He wrote a book Our Right to Drugs: The Case for a Free Market.

Szasz wrote extensively about the history of psychiatry. The history of psychiatry offers many good lessons for today.

Szasz noted that psychiatric coercion is medicalized terrorism.

Perhaps Szaszian ideas and Szaszian ethics can benefit society and many stakeholders greatly in the coming years.

Szasz wanted psychiatric human rights abuses to be outlawed.

Outlawing Psychiatric Coercion

The right to not experience psychiatric coercion and nonconsensual psychiatry is an important human right.

Through grassroots activism (including contacting politicians) and utilizing social media and so forth, we can eventually outlaw psychiatric coercion and nonconsensual psychiatry.

Psychiatrist Thomas Szasz is correct; psychiatric coercion is medicalized terrorism.

We should only utilize peaceful and legal means to bring about the outlawing of psychiatric coercion and nonconsensual psychiatry (psychiatric slavery).

Cheers and Limitless Peace.

Psychiatric Dynamics

Don’t feel good? Have a drug!

Don’t like the way some one is feeling or behaving? Try to have them ingest a drug!

Yes. These drugs have side effects. Some of these side effects can potentially result in death.

Are the drugs not helping? Increase the dose of the drug! Of course. And yeah, maybe the side effects tend to increase the higher the dose of the drug.

Of course, governments allow for psychiatric coercion, where individuals are threatened with various negative consequences if they do not “comply with treatment” and ingest some of the aforementioned psychiatric drugs.

There is a psychiatric survivor movement. That can’t have any credibility can it? Like, could people’s feelings of distress in relation to psychiatric force, coercion, and confinement be valid? Oh, how could that be? Are they human too?

According to psychiatrist Thomas Szasz, civil commitment and the insanity defense form the foundations of psychiatric slavery. Read his book Psychiatric Slavery; it is primarily an analysis of a psychiatry related US Supreme Court case. Psychiatric slavery is when individuals earn money from psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement.

Eventually, the majority of those living in democracies that authentically permit free speech will eventually understand that psychiatric coercion is morally wrong.

Utilizing Social Media to Help Defeat Aging

Volunteer grassroots social media propaganda can help to defeat aging.

Propaganda does not have to be bad, immoral, or illegal.

Propaganda can be utilized by good actors for positive purposes, like reducing rates of cigarette smoking, encouraging people to lose weight, or to encourage people to help hasten the defeat of aging.

Many volunteers can devote minutes per week to encouraging politicians to fund research that could eventually lead to the defeat of aging. Many volunteers can devote minutes per week to encouraging more individuals to do what they can to help hasten the defeat of aging – spreading the message that aging must be defeated and spreading the word that aging can and should be defeated.

How can we mobilize many individuals to spread positive, legal, and helpful propaganda that aging can and should be defeated? We need tens or hundreds of millions of individuals to demand that healthspan research is funded sufficiently so that aging is defeated as efficiently as possible.

How I Am Trying to Help Hasten the Defeat of Aging

Here is how I am trying to help hasten the defeat of aging. I keep posting videos, articles, and short thoughts about defeating aging. Recently I have been creating music in which I mention ideas related to defeating aging. My music is on Spotify, iTunes, Google Music, and Amazon Music.

I keep posting on Reddit and Facebook about defeating aging. I am on Reddit, and is my Facebook page. You can follow me there. I am at on YouTube. I post to on Twitter.

I am attempting to catalyze grassroot efforts to persuade politicians to classify aging as a potentially treatable disease, and to significantly increase funding for research that could lead to the defeat of aging.

I hope you attempt to do what you can do to hasten the defeat of aging.

Read the book Ending Aging by Aubrey de Grey. Read the book Radical Life Extension by me, Michael Ten.

Donate money to SENS Research Foundation, Methuselah Foundation, Buck Institute and Life Extension Advocacy Foundation. Attempt to persuade other individuals to do this too.

Be creative in how you attempt to help hasten the defeat of aging. We can build a grassroots movement to persuade politicians to use their political power to help defeat aging. What might you do to help hasten the defeat of aging?

Self Serve Advertising Software That Accepts Cryptocurrencies

Self serve advertising is when individuals and organizations can log into websites and apps and purchase advertising that will be shown to users of such sites and apps, and this can be done without having to wait (in any significant way) on any response from any human agent in order for the ads to be served to users.

This is dedicated to learning, teaching, and researching about self serve advertising. Self serve advertising is related to areas of knowledge that include technology, software engineering, business, advertising, and marketing. It can even relate to politics!

Some of the biggest providers of self serve online advertising are Facebook, Twitter, and Google. These are for profit companies. Net profits from ads are given to shareholders. This system benefits the few at the expense of the many. YouTube and Instagram probably also use self serve advertising.

Facebook and Twitter earn money from advertising placed alongside original content created by members/users. Facebook and Twitter do not pay royalties to content creators/contributors. Minimum royalty laws should exist.

There has been controversy related to self serve advertising. In 2016 elections in USA, self serve advertising was used in ways that may have violated election regulations to spread political ideas.

Can a nonprofit or decentralized organization facilitate (DAO) the creation of self serve advertising platforms that accept cryptocurrencies? Can such an organization use all profits for social good?

Newman’s Own donates all profits to charities. Perhaps a nonprofit or DAO can exist that enables people to run self serve advertising on social media sites and also donate all net profits to charities or distribute most of back to content creators, and maybe even to viewers of ads. Is this a realistic endeavor?

In what ways can self serve advertising be utilized to benefit all of humanity, and not mostly just shareholders of large social media companies?
