Re: A Jacob Mention

I was just going to mention the mastermind group as somewhat relevant to this discussion. I (and we, to speak for what some of then their members have expressed) am getting a ton of value out of the group, and we have both meta theoretical discussions as well as action-focused discussions. On our la...

Re: 2021 online ERE meetup

Bummed I missed it, but glad to hear it went well! Summer is always tricky as people tend to be busier. And in 2021, people are less likely than before to pass on a meatspace meeting than a virtual meeting. Looking forward to joining for the next one.

Re: The Education of Axel Heyst

Also something I have to watch out for is making decisions too quickly, just because she’s sad or our lives have become a bit much. My rant a couple days ago was triggered mostly by her being sad and not into it, which set my “let’s solve this RIGHT MEOW” instinct raging. I mellowed a bit last night...

Re: bivvy bag

If your tent takes 30-40 min to set up, somethings up. Is it 40 years old? Or do you maybe need to practice more? My ten year old two person tent (Rei half dome 2) sets up or packs down in five minutes. I like the idea of a bivvy but modern tents are pretty good, and cover more situations than bivvys.

Re: The Education of Axel Heyst

Thanks for the questions and comments all, you’ve given me great mulling-over material. I think of emotions and reasoning as partners in my brain. They inform each other and when they play nice, make my decisions stronger. I tend to have to put more effort into encouraging my emotions and stoke to f...

Re: Methods and examples of highly developed social capital

In other words, social capital flows ought always be an incidental yield, a first or second (but not zeroth) yield, in the context of friends? It does get tricky to discuss this topic and avoid exploitative mindset thinking doesn’t it. There is a difference between analysis “what yields have I benef...

Re: The Education of Axel Heyst

JnG, when you first mentioned “be the manic pixie dream girl” I thought you were on one, but I’m starting to understand the wisdom in it now. Your post made a lot of sense to me. In a sense I’ve started to do that - I recently told her “I’m not doing any plans this summer, because you just destroy t...

Hi Cam, welcome and very interesting journal! How did you find the permaculture homestead to stay at? Are you worktrading, interning, paying for rent, or ? Are there others there like you?

Re: AE's Journal Round 5 - Finding Freedom To

It’s also interesting to think about how environment relates to the identity/clothing/weirdo issue. You can probably find some location to live where people *will* accept you for how you do want to dress/express yourself, or at least where a visible supportive subculture exists. Spending some time t...

Re: Systems!- Level 6 towards 7

WL7: Yields, yields everywhere, how do I put them together? If I borrow a tool to grow a plant and save money was that social, financial, or technical capital? I don't know. It doesn't matter what I call it. Makes me think of how as you level up, it becomes increasingly irrelevant to categorize exp...

Re: Methods and examples of highly developed social capital

@iDave really interesting. Do you (or anyone) have thoughts or observations on how to avoid being lonely old person? Any stories of elderly with no family who still managed to be socially engaged and in a support network through to their ends?

Re: Methods and examples of highly developed social capital

Story of social capital: DGF lived in a small but busy mountain town since 2016. Mostly doing nanny work. She’s extremely social and knows lots of people here. She became nomadic when we started dating, but still spends several months a year there. During the pandemic, half of the Bay moved here. Ma...

Re: Methods and examples of highly developed social capital

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention http://www.paulgraham.com/nerds.html again. I'm not qualified to cast aspersions on the US Public School system, but essays like that make me feel like I really dodged a bullet by being homeschooled k-12. I'm not sure if I would have been one of the D-table kids or...

<3. I had that blind spot too. (It's maybe analogous to having a "money is evil" anti-value, which tends to lead one to always be scraping for cash and perversely spending a lot of effort on money issues). --//-- Adding to the transactionality thread - one way to think about social transac...
