I feel a true strength inside. An elite leader in the field and a recognized pioneer. Something really worked. What I have learnt from you helped me through some very difficult times. The ZeroOne practice has been conceived and founded by Adam Barley, and at present he is the only person offering workshops or classes.
As the practice evolves, there will be trainings for others to become ZeroOne facilitators; for more information please contact us. By some wild grace I found the core vision for ZeroOne via a school maths lesson that I never forgot, melded with my passion for altered states and understanding this reality we live in.
I have also learnt the hard way that movement alone is not enough; that we need to speak the truth in words too. So be it. Adam knew from a very early age that he longed to be a pilgrim, had his first glimpse of the truth aged 17, and set out to find his feet a year later. With nearly 40 years experience in meditation and embodiment practices, he focussed deeply upon the 5Rhythms from , training with Gabrielle Roth to teach her work and building a world-wide reputation for powerfully transformative workshops. Karen Melin, west-coast Canada. With an acute sensitivity to and awareness of the physical body, its relationship to its environment, protective and defensive patterns, I inject ZeroOne with the neurobiological understanding of trauma and physiology to support the impulse available for movement in every moment.
Karen draws on nearly 40 years of movement coaching, analysis and practice that developed in the world of Olympic sport before turning her focus to restoring nervous system health and trauma healing. Karen engages and supports the deep physiological and developmental foundations that create nervous system regulation and resilience for people to experience a fuller, more resourced and coherent experience of life. I gather my strength from years of spelunking in the caves of my own murky shadow. Profit is revenue less cost, which includes things like an owners labor, opportunity cost of capital, etc.
Raj—profit is revenue less cost, but when we speak of profit margins being driven to zero in a competitive market, we are including opportunity costs—that is, the next-best-thing-you-could be doing. In the long run in a competive market, no one will do better by switching jobs than they will by staying where they are—if you like, it finds a Pareto optimal state. That does not mean that long run income tends to 0. Did it? These are not independent of each other — a big part of the reason why Tesla got so much leeway from its investors and creditors in the long, agonizing period of unprofitability was because Musk had sold the idea of Musk The Great Innovator so effectively based on his earlier successes.
I agree. It is the same as Warren Buffet — he can achieve superior long term returns because he essentially gets a lower cost of capital than everyone else because of his previous success. He is quite open about this — his insurance business float is used to fund high risk investments in businesses. The cost of these insurance funds is very low compared to what I would be charged as a neophyte investor if I went to banks for the same funding if they would even give it to me.

If Elon Musk had gone to equity investors for money to fund his investment in rocketry as say an anonymous car mechanic he would never have got the funds or their cost would have to be high and backstopped somehow by some massive equity. So it is true that insanely rich people get a lot more opportunities to make insane amounts of money than poor people.
Re monopolies: trying to run a small business will make you realize how much closer it is to a job than to being Elon Musk.

There is no conflict between too much or to little competition: people open restaurants because they want the lifestyle, not having a boss, earning based on their success and not what somebody else decides etc. Basically a different kind of day job. We want a market where individual actors can easily chose their position on the continuum, and fail or succeed accordingly.
But a world of competing restaurants is still open to Uber Eats and any number of other innovations. Their number will naturally be very low, and their monopoly short lived. Are there exceptions?

Monopolies born through network effects have the least merit and are good candidates for regulation. The breaking up of Bell was by all accounts a success, and opened up the way for low prices and innovation.
In current times, this would probably be Facebook, period. You have more upside though. Read the book The Millionaire Fastlane. Sometimes that person is you. Ad monopolies: Monopolies are great for the monopolist, but tend to suck for everyone else. If any entity or small group of entities has a disproportionate amount of power, that power will be abused. Much of the valuable data a user gives Facebook will be used to the detriment of people the user knows and potential competitors to Facebook , not the user himself.
One obvious way of using data about me is to figure out what goods I am likely to buy, hence what ads to show me. That strikes me as in my interest. I would rather be shown an ad for the new C. Cheryh novel, having enjoyed her previous writing, than get a phone call at dinner from someone offering to refinance my nonexistent mortgage.
I have gotten less from the transaction than I could have, but it would be very odd to say that he bought the book to my detriment. I have no personal experience with the data it collects. I get to choose who sees it—those I have friended or in my case everyone. Why do you consider unsolicited ads a harm?

In particular, why do you consider them a harm if they have been selected to be things you are likely to be interested in buying, which is presumably how the information is being used? Ads by phone cost me more; they have increased to the point of constituting an effective denial of service attack. Ads on web pages cost me less, except those that also include malware in their payload — sometimes accidentally. The malware payloads are rare — unless you count things like additional tracking — but have occurred too often for me to ignore.
Unless of course I have an underpowered computer or lousy internet connection, in which case they once again steal small amounts of my time — and of course my computing resources, bandwidth, etc.. I then checked with people I knew for stories, good or bad. Finally, I called one of the ISPs with technical questions. A week or so later, having figured out how to work around their limitations, I called them again and purchased the service. As a comparison, imagine having sweets on your desk.
Many people are not able to ignore those, even though they would not seek them out if it took effort. There is, of course, good reason for this. Newton could, if I may be allowed the expression, pick low-hanging fruit. Few people had really thought about gravity, and those who had, were other individual thinkers. Condensed matter physics, and more specifically solid state physics.
Which is weird because a lot of the biggest advances in technology of the past 20 years come from that branch. The flip side is that because condensed matter has better industrial applications, there are a lot more people working on it. You need to find something that seems unsexy AND not useful. The graphene guys won a Nobel prize using scotch tape. And just this year someone found that just by rotating 2 sheets of graphene slightly they could make a superconductor.
There are lots of surprises out there in the condensed matter physics world waiting for people to discover them.
Instead, you imitate Newton by coming up with an original theory about the equivalent of gravity, i. Eliezer wrote something wonderful about this a long time ago — basically asking what meta-level cognitive approaches would have worked to help people discover modern science a couple thousand years ago. It was something like a machine that lets you talk with Aristotle or whoever , but translates anything you say into the meta-equivalent expression in his culture.
So far as economics is concerned, Coase got and deserved a Nobel prize for a conceptual approach that he seems to have developed in his twenties and later incorporated into two articles that became arguably the most important pieces in their respective fields. There are other examples. If you look at any internet pile-on, they mostly follow the same pattern. Someone offends the norms of some group and the members of that group come out of the woodwork to try to snark and meme that person to death.
No one tries to make an objective argument as to why what that person said or did was wrong. The fact that this person may have a point of view worth noting is completely lost. I think the current culture of snark and ridicule is extremely corrosive of the kind of local, private weirdness of a small group that allows for interesting new things to come into the world. This is what it looks like from within the group, anyway. And if I understand Marx correctly, his prediction was not that perfectly competing capitalist markets will be superseded by state monopolies, but rather that, given enough time, the dynamics inherent to capitalism will lead inadvertently to the monopolization of every major industry, so that when the socialist revolution happens, private monopolies will simply be turned into public ones.
