Learn to Live by Digitizing The Peace Process

Too Short Indeed!

The life so short, the crafts so long to learn.
— Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400)

The titled responsion is a simple forme of agreement with a little allusion to a rap star from the 80s.

Or Something you Say to your Hommies

Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice.
— Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677)

The titled responsion continues with this rap motif, but when push comes to shove, peace is something that only survives us after death.

The Behavior Savior

To feel much for others and little for ourselves; to restrain our selfishness and exercise our benevolent affections, constitute the perfection of human nature.
— Adam Smith (1723-1790)

The titled responsion is the only True economy of scale worth pursuing.

Digitizing the peace process is more than avoiding war; it's about managing aggression and understanding the biology of our behavior at our worst and at our best. Robert Sapolsky wrote the book on Behavior; this Behavior Savior preaches only from the pulpit of biology. As a fellow, and "determined", atheist (recovering), our views only differ slightly across his entire corpus of academic output.

Those are my views, what are yours?

Learn to die!

One does not learn how to die by killing others.
— François-René de Chateaubriand (1768-1848)

The closest friends, family members, and significant influences in our lives affect us, shape us and affect outcomes. Flavored with forgiveness and aptitude, the propensity towards goodness is explained through a benevolent tit-for-tat game theory. Retaliatory actions beget the potential of reconciliation, however incipit. Capital punishment is an end in itself. Peace on earth starts with living a life worth living.

Everybody knows they’re going to die, but nobody believes it. If we did, we would do things differently,’ Morrie said. ‘So we kid ourselves about death,’ I (Mitch) said. ‘Yes, but there’s a better approach. To know you’re going to die and be prepared for it at any time. That’s better. That way you can beactually be more involved in your life while you’re living. . . Every day, have a little bird on your shoulder that asks, ‘Is today the day? Am I ready? Am I doing all I need to do? Am I being the person I want to be?... The truth is, Mitch, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live… Most of us walk around as if we’re sleepwalking. We really don’t experience the world fully because we’re half asleep, doing things we automatically think we have to do… Learn how to die, and you learn how to live.
Tuesdays with Morrie

Have you ever experienced something so significant that it is difficult to overlook it? The majority of us overlook a huge level of the individuals we meet, the spots we go, and the occasions we experience. Yet, certain things stick out in our psyches and are rarely overlooked. Why? What's extraordinary about those paramount occasions?

In the Hebrew language, the word for recollect is zachor. There is a standard in Hebrew that phonetic sounds and letters are related with respect to their significance. Thusly, in spite of the fact that the word sagar signifies 'to close,' sagar and zachor are associated in the profundity of their meanings (the 's' and 'z' are phonetically close, similar to the 'g' and 'ch'). At the point when we recollect an occasion, it is on the grounds that we initially cut off that event in our psyches and secured it as especially significant.

At the point when we are encountering our big day or our graduation, we interface so intensely to the festival that maybe our mind is taking a constant photograph meeting. We store these various recollections in the 'image collection' of our psyche, securing them and always remembering them.

In the event that we genuinely lived with that little flying creature on our shoulder inquiring as to whether we are prepared to kick the bucket today, we would bond so firmly with each occasion in our lives. We would welcome each nightfall, each stroll around the square, every call from our folks, each discussion with our companions, each culinary joy, etc. Every moment of life would be bound with desperation and enthusiasm. We would help ourselves to remember the centrality that each human experience can yield. We would squeeze ourselves normally as a suggestion to welcome the occasion. We would make the entire days and occasions important and paramount—even the purported repetitive ones.

It is conceivable to live numerous years but then carry on with a short life. It is practical to live hardly any years but carry on with a long life. As a savvy man once stated, "Life isn't estimated by the measure of breaths we take, however by the minutes that blow our mind." A month could be one brimming with long life or it very well may be a fleeting month. The two months most recent 30 days. The distinction between them lies in what number of significant minutes were made during those 30 days. In this manner, we ask God consistently to assist us with encountering our carries on with completely lived.

Regardless of whether we envision the little feathered creature on our shoulder or not, how about we keep this in our awareness: when we figure out how to pass on, we will figure out how to live.
