Growing our H.E tree of knowledge

2 years, 5 months ago

We can never hope to know everything, or know much about anything in most relevant scales. Yet, we all, rightly, always seek larger knowledge. Therefore, why don’t we build on the differences between all people on of HE to make all of us a little smarter?

How shall we do this? Well, why don’t all of us share a small and short fact, that you consider to be something few others know and yet you find interesting! Only two conditions need to be filled for growing the tree:
a) Be truthful
b) Be interesting (meaning: don’t share something which is not interesting for any other person than yourself, like your shoe size… ;)

When these two conditions are checked, the tree grows, but whenever someone doesn’t check the conditions, the tree will slowly die. In any other parts of the internet (Facebook for example), I don’t see how the tree would survive, but I think that on High Existence, we might have a shot.

Are you ready?

1) Germany has windmills capable of producing the equivalent energy of 20 nuclear stations.

@cedricb, No trees here. Unlike a tree, I’m not firmly rooted into one position.

It about adaptation, if you can adapt to change you can survive, if you are rooted to the spot (like a tree), and strong wind comes along you can snap, rendering yourself useless, and dead.

(N.B. tree metaphors are not a good literary device, either for making a point or making a rebuttal)

@cedricb, Personally I think it is unhealthy if we view ourselves as smarter, wiser or anything like that.
I’ll see if I can think of anything interesting.

I’ll add onto the German energy tech branch: they also have the highest rated efficiency solar panels(18% light to electricity conversion, most float around 15%). They also manufacture the Volcano vaporizer, the world’s leading technology for convection-heating herbal inhalation.

Trees are hard to visualize in a linear discussion forum, though. I wish there were a cloud-forum platform that could host a 360* discussion such as this. Ooo, I wonder what a spherical discussion would look like. I suppose a tree.

If you were to earn 1 Million dollars every day, it would take you almost 3000 years to reach 1 Trillion dollars.

1984. V for Vendetta. The dual workings of government control and controlled entertainment/media/television/movies/pop culture/advertising<—the ridiculous influence this has on the general thinking trends of a whole population.

Something to never forget and always keep in mind when making decisions and interacting with the world and people around you.

Not necessarily always a bad thing, depending on where you live, but definitely something beneficial to be highly aware of.
