I have a wealthy older lady that talks to me regularly.
But because I am not working for a company.
Or providing the appearance of outright productivity…
I think it’s difficult for her to understand me.
Age generational gap, clearly.
“What are you doing with your life?” She asked me, ” to me it looks like nothing”
I told her: “It’s the same thing I have done for the vast majority of my life. I sit behind a computer and do what I have done since I was 11. Now, instead of working 12 hours a day for someone else. I am doing it for me”
She responded with “But what are you doing to get off the street?”
I responded with complete candor:
“Milady. I am taking over this planet. Literally.”
“Oh that’s just nonsense,” she responded. “how are you helping yourself out with that? You’re being lazy!”
Now how can I explain to her that I can move markets and shift supply and demand around the world as if I am playing a game, that when I say something on the internet, I see my words come out from the President’s mouth, or other leaders, or corporate heads around the world every single day?
How do I explain that with this computer, I can control the speed of light, the laws of gravity, I can force new companies into existence that weren’t there the day before, and force hidden technology into the public….
How do I explain to a woman like this:
I’m still having fun with what I have been learning.
Why would I want to give others the chance to figure out how I am doing what I am doing?
“All I can say is I am taking over the planet.
… And keep in mind that Rome was not conquered in a day.”
After all, that took me more like three….
