How to buy Modafinil (Provigil) – and Q&A. This blog post addresses many of my readers’ questions and concerns about modafinil, such as: “but Dave, aren’t you all-natural?”

How to buy Modafinil (Provigil) – and Q&A

And, “how do you know your experiments worked if you were taking drugs?” Biohacking is about maximizing your potential, not necessarily about being the most all-natural person out there. It just happens to be that a lot of natural solutions help you reach your potential. And when I’m doing experiments, I take account for modafinil – sometimes stopping it, sometimes lowering it, to see how my other biohacks work without it. Then there were some readers who wanted to know how much modafinil I take, and more urgently, how to get some. In this post, I also go into depth explaining what steps I take to mitigate any possible risk from modafinil (even though the chance of risk is slim to none), and I argue against the claims that it’s addictive and immoral. The recent ABC Nightline piece about me using modafinil as a cognitive enhancer brought out a lot of comments.

Judge Napolitano: How to get fired from Fox in under 5 mins. Make the Subtle Tangible. Change the economy to change your life. There is no doubt that an inevitable change to move beyond neoliberalism has to do with the ways of making the economy and defining it.

Change the economy to change your life

Nowadays, it is not only about transferring control or decision-making from one dominant group to the other, or even ‘de-privatizing’ such decisions, but rather facing fundamental changes that would lead to an economy focused on the accumulation and tyranny of the market, oriented towards the sustainability of life, justice and democracy. Sustainability. Achieving sustainability will enable the Earth to continue supporting human life.


In ecology, sustainability is how biological systems remain diverse and productive. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems. In more general terms, sustainability is the endurance of systems and processes. The organizing principle for sustainability is sustainable development, which includes the four interconnected domains: ecology, economics, politics and culture.[1] Sustainability science is the study of sustainable development and environmental science.[2] Healthy ecosystems and environments are necessary to the survival of humans and other organisms. Etymology[edit] The name sustainability is derived from the Latin sustinere (tenere, to hold; sub, up). Components[edit]

Post-scarcity economy. This would require a sophisticated system of resource recycling, in conjunction with advanced productive technology that enables conditions of material abundance, such as automated systems capable of converting raw materials into finished goods[not verified in body], which in turn enable the free distribution[2] of most or all economic output and the common ownership of the means of production used therefor.

Post-scarcity economy

The scarcity model[edit] Scarcity is the fundamental economic assumption of having seemingly unlimited human needs and wants in a world of limited resources. Society has insufficient productive resources to fulfill all human wants and needs. Alternatively, scarcity implies that not all of society's goals can be pursued at the same time; trade-offs are made of one good against others.

As such, the term "post-scarcity economics" may be somewhat paradoxical. However, in classical Marxian economics, scarcity is said to be peripheral. Free Market Definition. Economic Systems Can Change. Throughout the human journey, economic systems have changed.

Economic Systems Can Change

This is a normal (yet chaotic!) Event. We are at the end of the industrial/consumer economy and moving into the knowledge/service/caring economy. It's time to be proactive, expand the rules for this new economy and create the solutions we need for the 21st century. We have a choice. We’ve spent the last 5,000 years largely under the dominator system and built an economic system that perpetuates these values.

It’s time for a new economy: What's next? Partnership Values. Independent think tank and strategy consultancy. Arduino Tutorial *Teach yourself how to make electronic controllers* So, I get two or three emails a day, all basically asking the same thing: "Where can I learn about electronics?
