In typical Gurdjieff fashion (ie absurd absolutist statements) he said "You should never praise children."

Statistically, this is the correct form of conditioning given how performance should be expected to decline after any 'exceptionally positive' incident worthy of praise.

The future is not something into which we can see.
The future is that which allows me to to think 'I can',
In the first place

AVAST, YE LUBBERS!  WHITE PICKET FENCE AMERICA IS ABOUT TO GO BELLY UP!

I've battened down the hatches as best I can with my two 401Ks. Something, something... CAPITAL PRESERVATION FUND in one of them, and like, bonds, and commercial mortgages or something in the other one. Basically, the lowest risk options offered in each plan.

"Guns 'N Beans Futures" were, surprisingly enough, not to be found anywhere on the list for either plan.

I had a thought, probably due to reading these.

Free will is something that is exercised when you don't know what is the best choice.
With perfect knowledge human being could navigate through his life always taking the best,
most fulfilling option every time they're presented with choice.
Like how particles choose to follow straight path, because changing the course would lose energy
and therefore shorten their lifespan.

More we see into the future,
more we see the consequences of our actions,
more we are bound to follow the path of least resistance.

That's why science has felt sinister to me for a while.
It ends up abstracting people,
first as cells in the body of the machine,
then some chemistry that fuels the planetary consciousness,
weird particles that speed around the interplanetary space,
and some strange interaction between stars
until we ultimately fade out into the background noise.

"I'll get to that right away.  First thing.  Top priority."


Then continue doing what you're doing.

This works surprisingly well.

Also, "I'll take that under advisement."
