The Bitcoin Awakening with John Vallis

What Bitcoin Did with Peter McCormack

“I think we’re at the precipice of really next-level civilizational change, and it’s probably going to be messy a little bit in the transitionary period. But on the other side of this, or as we move forward, I think more good is coming than bad, and that’s something to be hopeful for.”— John VallisJohn Vallis is a Bitcoin podcaster who hosts Bitcoin Rapid Fire. In this interview, we discuss what freedom means, parallels between Bitcoin and religious values, living a meaningful life, psychedelics and their importance, and a new civilisation centred on truth. - - - - Bitcoin provides freedom. Financial freedom; freedom from coercion; freedom of movement. But how should those who benefit from Bitcoin use this freedom? Should they use it to fulfil their own desires? Or are there higher values that Bitcoiners should strive to attain? Should Bitcoiners draw back into their citadels? Or, should they actively engage in trying to shape a better world? Such decisions will be influenced by the values such individuals hold. In our fiat economy, self-interest is deemed to be the principle that supports a functioning and prosperous society. Institutionally driven moral codes have been supplemented by the needs of the market. Religion has been replaced; prayer and faith have given way to data and patterns. It is assumed that science and rejection of the divine have driven a more advanced society. And yet, ephemeral pursuits of money and power seem to be the root of a lot of the problems we face today. Some feel that more sophisticated behaviours were displayed by previous civilisations: humans have previously been more in tune with nature. Psychedelics is thought to have played a part in this process. Many cultures throughout history used psychedelic practices to enable them to break away from their ego. This gave them a wider perspective - a more holistic view of the world around them.Bitcoin shows that current values in a fiat world are misaligned: selfish short term pursuits are failing us; we have lost sight of the truth. Could psychedelics hold the key to helping more people to make that shift to see the fallacy of our current systems? Is the loss of ego needed to determine how best to mould this new world evolving around us?

"Money, in the ideal (which we’ll likely always only ever strive for, and not achieve), turns a portion of ‘our work, here and now’, into a portion of ‘everyone’s work, anywhere and forever’." - John VallisContinuing the incredible piece from yesterday by John Vallis around how the human consciousness even creates value and meaning, and how deeply tied to that process and our ability to peacefully coexist is to the nature of our money.

Read_594 - Money Messiah: Part 1 [John Vallis]

Bitcoin Audible

“Sacrifice is thus a critical component of value, as it is the use of one’s own limited resources, as that against which all action is measured and justified.” - John VallisWhy does it always seem that the Bitcoin rabbit hole inevitably leads to the questions of "what is money" & "what is value?" How do we always find ourselves at such fundamental question when exploring Bitcoin? Today we dive into Vallis's "Money Messiah" on the very nature of value and meaning, how it relates to our religious and moral interpretations of the world, and why they are so intricately intwined with the simple, ubiquitous tool that we call money. Part 1 explores value and meaning, and tomorrow with Part 2 we will dive deep into money and Bitcoin. This one is not to be missed:Drop some massive applause on the article at the link below:https://medium.com/@johnkvallis/money-messiah-god-bitcoin-and-the-evolution-of-consciousness-b95be58054f4#3d4bFor the best products and services to get you started in Bitcoin, our sponsors are literally a handful of those that I use most in this space:• Get Bitcoin rewards on literally everything you buy with the Fold Card (20% discount code BITCOINAUDIBLE)• Buy Bitcoin automatically and painlessly with SwanBitcoin• Keep your Bitcoin keys safe on the secure, open source BitBox02 (5% discount code GUY)• Get tickets to the biggest & most exciting Bitcoin conference in the world!
