Trading all Jacks

No longer just the change that I wish to see in the world, this philosophy has become a part of who I am. Through years of development, consideration, and refinement, I have whittled away at the ambiguous form and started to carve out the shape beneath. The periods of accelerated interest wax and wane like the cycles of the moon, but as the moon persists, so does this idea. Like most trades that I approach in life, I have limited desire to master this much farther than the realm of the Jack. If I spend too much time on any particular concept or skill, I cannot help but feel that my time is being wasted. Once the law of diminishing returns kicks in, I quickly lose interest and desire to master the notion. This works well for me in my life, but it also has the consequence of often leaving things unfinished.

For an idea such as IGITY, the same threshold of diminishing returns will eventually apply and I will feel like I have exhausted my capability to elaborate any further. This, however, does not mean that the thoughts and ideas that I express are the limit of reach that IGITY could have. I have always encouraged these ideas to be a collaborative effort and I wish for anyone, regardless of their background, to contribute to these thoughts and help to expand IGITY into a philosophy of peace and altruism. My words will only go so far and will only touch so many people. The true power of IGITY will be the way in which it slowly begins to spread as collective thought starts to take hold. Once the tipping point is reached, or once the idea becomes “viral”, there is no stopping it.

I need your help for this to happen. I need your ideas, your critiques, your encouragement, and for you to be a messenger. If you read this and have any reaction to the concepts, I would love to hear about them. The more people that are discussing and progressing this line of thought, the faster that it will spread and gain interest. The sooner that the concepts spread, the sooner that the world will begin to make changes for the better. It is a pipe dream, and one that I may never live to see fully realized. But as I am alive today, I will continue to work towards developing these ideas with the hope that someday they might have an impact. You can help make this a reality, and I hope that you do. We can direct the change that we want to see in the world…no longer do we have to be passive observers acting out the will of corrupt politicians and greedy lobbyists. We have the power to make things different, so why not put it to good use?
