“RealityCheck”, shaken not stirred…

In quantum mechanics, you can be at the same time in many different places, and see for yourself what really is going on around.

But in our real human world, if you are professionally, or personally, highly inquisitive about how events are developing in different parts of the planet, you would have to rely on the information provided by news agencies, media, tweets, etc.

A small section of the information drinks bar may look like this:

Different drinks, of course, are composed of different ingredients. This is because different media have different commercial, political, ideological, ethnic or other agenda. History has proved a rule with no exception: the higher the intensity of local, regional or global conflicts, the more disparate is the taste of the drink in each bottle.

As we all know well from personal experience, in times of tension the best method to kill stress is a good drink. Following this advice in our circumstances, however, leads to a very unexpected observation: if you sip from the same bottle, you very quickly get drunk. So drunk that you would not tell green light from red light.

But if, instead, you absorb a huge bowl of very many very strong dissimilar drinks, you start to clearly see all minute fragments of the situation, and you can process them into a working multifaceted model with predictable behaviour.

My current recipe includes news agencies, media and twitter sources (heads of state, government, non-government, politicians, analysts, think tanks, etc.) from US, UK, EU, UN, Russia, China, Australia, Japan, Brazil, etc., adding up to a total of 128. This cocktail, however, is very expensive: it costs around 100 minutes per day.
Are you a better bartender for the “RealityCheck” cocktail?

About lubomir todorov

The years of work and studies I have spent in countries of diverse anthropological, political and cultural realities like Japan, Australia, Russia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Czechia, and my numerous visits across the globe, were abundant in meetings and conversations with not only politicians, government officials and businessmen, but also people of different existential background, ethnicity, education and profession, philosophy and religion, social status and political inclination: aboriginal painters in Australia, US generals, Japanese Buddhist and Shinto priests, Majesties and members of Royal families, Russian scientists, street Mapuche musicians in Chile, British parliamentarians, Indian philosophers, Czech university professors, CEOs of top Japanese corporations, Chinese social sciences researchers, Dutch entrepreneurs - to mention just a few. Over time all this primary data, intertwined with the everyday inflow of information about human activities all over the world and their real-time consequences, were re-assimilated in my mind through the tools of philosophy, international relations, ethics, biology, economics, history and political sciences to gradually constitute a distinct resolution to re-examine my understanding about politics and the nature of human society. Making all the time hard efforts to keep the methodology machine uncontaminated by ideological, political or personal prejudice, I clung to one rule: If you aspire for the beauty of truth, it is only facts and logic that matter. Questioning the viability of human social and political behaviour and the capacity of existing political systems to lead to where people want to be, I believe that sooner than later, in pursue of sustainable prosperity, our humanity will embrace its ultimate imperative of Civilizational Thinking. Human Civilization is the spiritual dimension of homo sapiens group survival strategy that urges humans to mutually defend their strategic self-interest by generating Civilizational Values; and the optimal political environment for that is Universal Future: a global multifaceted platform on which all polities in their ideological, political, national, cultural, ethnic, religious, racial, etc. diversity exist, interrelate and compete with each other on non-violence basis.
