Scrolling by means of my timeline, I observed a man who stated I orange-pilled him some time again. He was into medication and playing on the time. He heard me preach about Bitcoin and he obtained into it with close to non secular fervor.

Then, underneath the affect of micro-dosing Orange-Tablet Reality, some pure sunshine, bitter actuality, and the candy excessive of Orange Enlightenment, his life rotated. He overcame his medication and playing dependancy and have become a Bitcoin Maximalist.

This makes excellent sense — and it speaks to Bitcoin’s higher position in society than simply being Good Cash.

That is the man’s tweet: I highlighted the related bits and by all means, observe him:

“Who or what orange-pilled me? It was a mixture of playing, @maxkeiser, and medicines. Let me Clarify.

First it was playing. I was an expert on-line poker participant. The US authorities took that away from me in 2011 by banning it. Quickly after, on the two+2 poker discussion board, there was discuss of a brand new, uncensorable foreign money that might be able to circumvent the US’s ban on playing.

Enter @MaxKeiser circa 2013. He was on a podcast known as London Reel when Bitcoin was solely $100 that I watched.

Max hit it out of the freaking park. He laid out the case for Bitcoin in essentially the most eloquent method.

Silk Street onboarded a essential mass of Bitcoiners.

It’s the identical for all new applied sciences: Medication, playing, and porn are gateways to the long run. The video cassette, for instance, owed its preliminary success to porn. Early house laptop adoption, equally. I keep in mind in France, once I was residing there within the early ‘90s, they’d Minitel, the world’s first big-time on-line portal previous to when America took it over with the world vast internet.

Minitel was rolled out in 1980. So what occurred? Why didn’t France kill it with this factor? One other French concept that withered as a result of their capital markets are rotten cheese; they haven’t any NASDAQ equal.

Minitel obtained its preliminary increase from the intercourse commerce, nevertheless. I recall stickers plastered on telephone cubicles with Minitel numbers of intercourse staff. The hookers on the Rue Saint-Denis and Pigalle initially obtained their knickers in a twist on the sudden inflow of novice competitors, however they rapidly embraced the brand new expertise.

Heck, even the Bible has a saucy story about bare Adam getting gaslit by a unadorned Eve with an apple.

FLASH CUT: Steve Jobs and his Apple smartphone and the rise of the cellular web.

FLASH CUT: Pornhub gobbling up an enormous p.c of web site visitors.

Now we’ve the seemingly unstoppable rise of AI and deepfake porn that takes A LOT of power.

For this reason Bitcoin’s hashrate is so excessive: It’s battling AI and porn within the international scramble for power.

Look, the three major vices — playing, medication, and porn — are assured moneymakers and all have big market capitalizations on the world’s inventory markets as publicly traded firms. New apps that blend and match faces with bare our bodies are gonna be big cash spinners. Nonetheless fantasize about your kindergarten instructor? Nicely, now with AI, you will discover some outdated elementary college yearbook photographs and begin a steamy, simulated tryst in your tricycle and a $0.05 carton of chocolate milk.

I believe AI is the Satan Canine, RingDings, Twinkies, and Yodels of childish intimacy fantasies. It should eradicate the plague of INCELS. Perhaps it would even cease all these mass shootings by annoyed incels, or so these midwits assume.

Within the different nook, we’ve Bitcoin, the hero.

It’s a battle between AI and Bitcoin for power dominance. That’s why Bitcoin’s hashrate is so excessive. We should win the power race with AI and fappers.

I’ve religion we’ll win. We see our higher selves mirrored in Bitcoin and it evokes us to be higher individuals. That is what Satoshi needs.

Except you’re born irreparably dangerous, by which case gazing at Bitcoin’s protocol brings out your worst traits. Just like the witch in Snow White who stared into the mirror and requested who’s the fairest of all of them, and the mirror shot again, “You ain’t it”.

The witch goes loopy and tries to kill the forest-wandering hottie within the tight skirt. This backfires, and karma kicks her ass.

That is what Bitcoin does: It kicks the ass of the karmically misaligned.

The spirit of Bitcoin. The spirit of Karma.

Bitcoin appears to be like again at us from an ideal, divine angle. Not a mirror picture, however one thing deeper, extra chopping. Like a surgeon’s scalpel into the soul.

I used to be wandering in a museum in Mexico Metropolis a number of years in the past with Stacy. An exhibit was being held within the foyer of the central financial institution and I got here throughout an set up that I’ll say was essentially the most gobbed-smackingly finest artwork I’d ever seen in a museum. For me, anyway: I had a private revelation.

What I noticed have been collectible figurines perched on steps main down beneath ground stage.

Dealing with the collectible figurines was a mirror. The figures began on the highest step, going through a technique, and as they stepped down — or have been pulled down — they metamorphosed into issues. Generally loopy issues.

An bizarre determine on the highest step would possibly change right into a pineapple. One would possibly change right into a bow-tie carrying aardvark.

What was occurring? My interpretation is that in life, after which after demise, we — the collectible figurines on the steps — get nearer to being and seeing who we actually are. Who we’ve actually been all this time. The act of changing into endless. Every of our every day 60,000 selections in mixture continues into our postnatal existence.

The journey of life begins and we’re strangers to ourselves. Life continues. We begin to know ourselves. This may be painful, so we undertake personas to cover who we’re. However the personas are like a coat of paint that fades. We placed on completely different masks. We shed the affectations. We face life courageously as who we’re. However it’s nonetheless painful. We name it knowledge.

Then demise. And the voyage of self continues. We’re on a continuum. The phantasm of life and demise bleeds away. The artifice of time will get junked in favor of BEING THERE. We see the round nature of issues, the fractalization of all the things.

William Blake will get it:

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,

Maintain Infinity within the palm of your hand

And Eternity in an hour.”

Whereas T. S. Eliot is a little bit of a buzzkill:

“I’ll present you worry in a handful of mud.”

Bitcoin is like this. It accelerates the method of self-awareness to the purpose of Bitcoin Singularity on a person foundation. The collective societal epiphany comes proper after.

You could be like William Blake and be relentlessly optimistic, like Stacy Herbert says. Otherwise you could be drippy, like a Brit, handing out in a nowheresville shire pub, cursing Man United all day. The Brits won’t ever get Bitcoin, by the way in which.

For Sam Bankman-Fried, Bitcoin accelerates his lifetime of slovenly, not-so-“grippy” intercourse sleaze and monetary crimes, and a complete profession of stealing and self-debasement occurs in just some brief years.

Within the case of somebody who’s morally aligned with the cosmos, Bitcoin can provide them the sensation of instantaneous nirvana. Michael Saylor is somebody who was looking out his complete, lengthy profession for Bitcoin to indicate as much as fulfill his desires of engineering a greater future, after which it occurred.

The man on my timeline, the one I orange-pilled, is climbing down these steps going through the mirror and changing into his true self. A course of that continues after life.

Orange-pilling has by no means been extra vital because the world goes up in flames.

We name it GIABO — World Rebel In opposition to Banker Occupation.

It began throughout Occupy Wall Avenue and now in Argentina we’ve Javier Milei — a Bitcoin supporter, a follower of Hayek, and lover of the Austrian college of economics. That is the political pushback in opposition to central bankers we’d like, and GIABO is gaining power. I noticed a vigil being held on the Argentine central financial institution throughout Milei’s inauguration. He’s euthanizing it.

We’re on the brink of a Renaissance 2.0.

This will probably be ushered in with Bitcoin.

Look within the mirror and also you’ll see what I imply.
