Introduction

[Oct.2016 - editor's note: this writeup is from 2012, and was left unfinished – probably to remain that way.]

Philanthropy etymologically means "the love of humanity" – love in the sense of caring for, nourishing, developing, or enhancing; humanity in the sense of "what it is to be human," or "human potential." In modern practical terms, it is "private initiatives for public good, focusing on quality of life" – balancing the social-scientific aspect emphasized in the 20th century, with the long-traditional and original humanist core of the word's ancient coinage.

Not Exactly

philanthropy-01-sm"The love of humanity" or the etymological meaning of philanthropy is not exactly the motive behind this website, however the sense of caring for, nourishing, developing, or enhancing; humanity in the sense of "what it is to be human," or "human potential," is closer.

Philanthropy, as with all other forms of "helping humanity," misses the point — unconscious procreation as the basis for mankind's trouble. (See Osho's talk: Beyond Habits for a better understanding of awareness vs. unawareness.)

The Gaian army is one way to approach this error of mankind.

“The secret to change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting
  the old, but on building the new.”

Save the World

save the world-03

Save the World?  Nope, this is not a Save the World (StW) website.

Many websites with constructive ideas, proven methods and admirable goals. For example, I like this guy's intro about himself (an ambitious website!). He is a member of a quite large community of online bloggers.

Here is a good example of what I would call a StW website: Armageddon Conspiracy. Check out the list of articles! I've only had time to read a few, but overall, all of what I've read is well researched and written. Obviously somebody has put a lot of effort into the website.

Is it some way connected to the Illuminati? (if there is such an organization?) Whatever may be thought about the material's origins, it is difficult to find fault in most of what is presented at this website. Here is a quick summary from The Last Post.

However. a couple of my main problems with what's there is:

the lack of any mention of unconscious procreation
the idea that there could ever be a situation where the 1% will ever allow a 100% inheritance tax!

Tax is but another way to say theft at the point of a gun. (also see here, here, and here for additional)

They claim 2,000,000 words on their website, and at least 100 main articles, and for example, a local copy of their homepage article (Old World Order posted on this website) has over 19,000 words.

Impressive website, but for what purpose?

Power Possessing Beings

I'm not sure who coined the phrase, "Power Possessing Beings", but Gurdjieff was fond of it. Trying to decipher a definition from his writings is not straightforward. Here is a link to its usage: Gurdjieff - Philosophia Perennis

Typically, power possessing beings want power over other human beings. Gurdjieff gave at least two classes:

Hereditary power-possessing beings

'New Format' of power-possessing beings – so called learned beings who happen to take up important responsible posts in the process of ordinary existence . . .

Emerging Fascist governments, intensified since 911 gives yet another, by now well defined class of power possessing beings: bureaucrats

Second decade of new American century: Clock Work Orange meets American Psycho – The American Empire's success depends on successfully converting the national American psyche into a sociopathic national consciousness (SNC). Once completed, America's empire will be as successful as it is ruthless.

• Manipulative and Cunning
• Grandiose Sense of Self
• Pathological Lying
• Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
• Shallow Emotions
• Need for Stimulation
• Callousness / Lack of Empathy
• Poor Behavioral Controls / Impulsive Nature
• Irresponsibility / Unreliability
• Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility

Power possessing beings are not the easiest group to get money out of . . . however there are a few among this group that are beginning to wake up to the Matrix (or already have), and this segment is the Gaian army's target audience.

It's up to the team's performance— if credible, support will follow.

Money

Warhol- Dollar SignModern fiat currency / global central banking – a man-made copy ot a natural system (Reciprocal Maintenance).

Goal is digital money, whether they pull that off in US, UK, EU remains to be seen. Difficult to imagine a digital money only system in the Philippines?

Elsewhere, is an outline of a start-up venture — a Gaian army squad. The program outlined is for one year — call that one year, extended boot camp. Probably all who begin will not remain?

The future continues to be positive for the long-term prospects for the POS, however even under best case scenarios, we are limited in our range of influence. Maybe eventually a profitable business plan will emerge, but in the meantime, the Gaian army is a losing proposition, money-wise. (we are only a beta-test)

Possible scenario

live-chat-01-smThat being said, here is a start:

Develop a criteria for selection, and find 4-8 girls that meet the basic qualifications, and who also demonstrate an understanding of the significance of this undertaking, and exhibit personal traits and qualities which indicate their ability to "get with the program." (click HERE to review compensation & benefits)

Get a 3-4 bedroom apartment in a secure location, and set up shop. High speed Internet, multiple workstations, dedicated studio . . .

Initially (first 2-3 months)

•  Intensive group study of Wisdom Courses and 4th Way basics.  – study, analysis & discussion, and practice & training.

•  Team building / Good Householder / Develop Code of Conduct / Develop Poise

•  Learn and practice video production and editing / Journalism / Create content

Go Online (after initial 2-3 month intensive)

•  Continue group study of Wisdom Courses and 4th Way basics.  – study, analysis & discussion, and practice & training.

•  Continue Team building / Good Householder / Develop Code of Conduct / Develop Poise

•  Begin as online live-video chat representative of the Gaian army Internet website. (4-6 hrs./day?) If no clients are in live chat, seek out potential new subscribers in various internet chatrooms and forums, etc Topic for discussion — the Gaian army, of course!

•  Production of Internet resources (videos, journals, blog posts, forum posts, etc.)

Based upon $150/day operating costs — need (150) $30/month subscribers to break even or (300) $15/month subscribers or some combination thereof.

$150/day = 54,700/year @ $40/oz = 1369 oz
$150/day = 54,700/year @ $50/oz = 1094 oz
$150/day = 54,700/year @ $100/oz = 547 oz
$150/day = 54,700/year @ $500/oz = 110 oz

[Oct.2016 - editor's note: the past four years have seen great emphasis on discounting the value of silver (and gold) through various means of price manipulation. As I write, the POS is ~$19/oz., which is an improvement from $14 which appears to have been the lowest price possible under the circumstances. As to when the POS will ever find its true value is anybody's guess.]

Social Impact Bond

Social Impact Bond

  Social Impact Bond    Social Impact Bonds are a form of outcomes-based contract in which public sector commissioners commit to pay for significant improvement in social outcomes (such as a reduction in offending rates, or in the number of people being admitted to hospital) for a defined population. Social Impact Bonds are an innovative way of attracting new investment around such outcomes-based contracts that benefit individuals and communities. Through a Social Impact Bond, private investment is used to pay for interventions, which are delivered by service providers with a proven track record. Financial returns to investors are made by the public sector on the basis of improved social outcomes. If outcomes do not improve, then investors do not recover their investment.

  Gaian Army for $50k       by: Tony Lutz The impetus for this post came to me about a week after reading an update email from the Philippines Addicts forum.It had the following headline and link (among others).     HOT PHILIPPINES TOPICS 02/21/2012    What do with $50K in Angeles City?
