（問：依靠「售賣時間」而來的收入，就為之「主動收入」？

（問：有自動生成收入的話，就當然十分高興。但是，那些「自動收入」，又從何而來呢？

# 財政自由 1.1

（問：根據你的講法，好像大部分情況下，都不應該讀研究院似的。）

.

（問：那樣，你心目中的理想情況是什麼？）

.

（問：那就即是話，要在還年青時，就賺到一生夠用的金錢？

.

（問：但是，財政自由，又可以如何實現呢？）

「售賣時間」的致命傷是，收入不可倍增放大。那就是所謂的「一分耕耘，一分收穫」。

（問：「一分耕耘，一分收穫」有什麼問題？）

# Almost nothing new

The most valuable insights are both general and surprising. F = ma for example. But general and surprising is a hard combination to achieve. That territory tends to be picked clean, precisely because those insights are so valuable.

Because these start out so general, you only need a small delta of novelty to produce a useful insight.

A small delta of novelty is all you’ll be able to get most of the time. Which means if you take this route your ideas will seem a lot like ones that already exist. Sometimes you’ll find you’ve merely rediscovered an idea that did already exist. But don’t be discouraged. Remember the huge multiplier that kicks in when you do manage to think of something even a little new.

It’s not true that there’s nothing new under the sun. There are some domains where there’s almost nothing new. But there’s a big difference between nothing and almost nothing, when it’s multiplied by the area under the sun.

# Euler Formula

Exponential, 2

$a^x$

general exponential increase ~ the effects are cumulative

$e^x$

natural exponential increase ~ every step has immediate and cumulative effects

— Me@2014-10-29 04:44:51 PM

exponent growth

$e^x = \lim_{n \to \infty} \left(1 + \frac{x}{n}\right)^n$

~ compound interest effects with infinitesimal time intervals

multiply -1

~ rotate to the opposite direction

(rotate the position vector of a number on the real number line to the opposite direction)

~ rotate 180 degrees

multiply i

~ rotate to the perpendicular direction

~ rotate 90 degrees

For example, the complex number (3, 0) times i equals (0, 3):

$3 \times i = 3 i$
$(3, 0) (0, 1) = (0, 3)$

multiplying i

~ change the direction to the one perpendicular to the current moving direction

(current moving direction ~ the direction of a number’s position vector)

exponential growth with an imaginary amount

$e^{i \theta} = \lim_{n \to \infty} \left( 1 + \frac{i \theta}{n} \right)^n$

~ change the direction to the one perpendicular to the current moving direction continuously

~ rotate $\theta$ radians

# Inception 11

.

Inception contains most of the important topics I have thought of in these few months:

1. Multi-mind

2. Layers of consciousness

3. Dream time

4. Lucid dream

5. Idea/software as a way to save Earth people

.

The deeper the consciousness, the more powerful it is.

The deepest layer is the Light.

The Light of everyone is the same.

# Inception 4.2

What’s the most resilient parasite? An Idea. A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all the rules. Which is why I have to steal it.

# Inception 4.1

.

What’s the most resilient parasite? A bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm?

An idea.

Resilient, highly contagious. Once an idea’s taken hold in the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate. A person can cover it up, ignore it – but it stays there.

Information, yes. But an idea? Fully formed, understood? That sticks… (taps forehead) In there, somewhere.

# 如何拯救眾生 2

How to improve the world indefinitely?

There is law of conservation of energy.
There is law of conservation of mass.
But, there is no law of conservation of ideas.

If you have an apple and I have an apple, and we exchange apples, we both still only have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea, and we exchange ideas, we each now have two ideas.

— George Bernard Shaw

.

.

. . . it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it. Its peculiar character, too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it. He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me.

That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, …

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed. — Carl Jung

Generalized Newton’s Third Law: You cannot change others without being changed. — John Wheeler

.

.

You are an A person. You befriend with an F person. The result is that your friend becomes a better person, you become a worse person. In theory, you become a C person. Your friend becomes a C person. In practice, since being a bad person is much easier than being a good person, you two will become both F people. — Me

Be slow in making friends, slower in changing. — Benjamin Franklin

You have to know how to accept rejection and reject acceptance. — Ray Bradbury

If you hire all A people, he said, they’ll also hire A people. But if you hire B people, they’ll hire the C people and then it’s all over. — Joel Spolsky

.

.

So that means you cannot help anyone weaker than you?

NO.

Instead, you should help others. But you have to help others in a smart way. — Me

How?

# Market price 2

Joel Spolsky

.

Livingston: If people have to pay more, they take the product more seriously?

Spolsky: Definitely. There was a five-user license that was like $199, and that just feels like shareware, practically. But today, when you say that a ten-user license is$999, it starts to feel like a more substantial product. In that market, it still is actually a good deal. But you really have to have a price point that conveys what you think the product positioning should be. Many people will judge where your product fits in the market based on its price.

# Permission marketing

Permission marketing is a term popularized by Seth Godin (but found earlier) used in marketing in general and e-marketing specifically. The undesirable opposite of permission marketing is interruption marketing. Marketers obtain permission before advancing to the next step in the purchasing process. For example, they ask permission to send email newsletters to prospective customers.

（安：最近，我們才有稍為詳細的對話。在和你對話之前，我一路不知道，在很多情境之下，我自己其實沒有問題。問題在於其他人。）

（安：在工作環境中，有時需要解釋一些東西予同事聽。一部分情況下，當我耐心地講完後，那位同事竟然一句也不明白，半句也不同意。那樣，我就覺得很震撼：「我明明是講得很詳細和清晰，為什麼他接收不到呢？」
