Centella asiatica and the Time Value of Money

What if an asset had both inherent value and caused you to gain time.

The plant Centella asiatica has inherent value because it requires work to cultivate it.

Yet, unlike any other form of manual or office labour, it does not “cost” time, for it adds time to your life.

Chinese lore has it that the sage Li Ching-Yuen1 used to consume Centella asiatica (Gotu Kola) and lived for 256 years.

You see, Centella asiatica stimulates the body to produce Telomerase – an enzyme, whose discovery won Carol Greider a Nobel in 20092. Telomerase contains a template for adding the repeating code “TTAGGG” to our DNA, that acts like a cellular counter.

Each cell division, the cell loses some of this repeating code ~ called Telomere, present at the edges of Chromosomes. The loss of “TTAGGG” repetitions prevents loss of actual DNA genes during cellular division (aging). Think of Telomeres as cellular sentinels!


Visual Memory Tablet – Language of the Heart

Visual Memory Tablet - a shorthand notation for referencing Human memories

In VM NOTATION, the word “Skin” would be “{2,1}A +4”. The first letter (“S”) is mathematically just a second Recurrence of A, so represented as “{2,1}A” – where 1 represents the Sequence of the letter “A” in the alphabet; and since the string has 4 letters, we put +4.


Visual Memory NOTATION (VMN) is a shorthand method of referencing memories stored in the brain. It can increase speed of recall.

Buddha posited the theorem of Suffering for his disciples. As for the tradition I follow, there is a saying in it that there is one organ in the body, that if it is ailing – the entire body suffers, and if it is strong the entire body is healed. This organ is the Heart; or as I understood now: the organ for “meta learning”.

To enable learning at warp speed and solve Earth’s intractable problems, I used a little known Mathematics Continue.....

Pervasive and Premium business models

Business models can be divided in two types in my analysis: Premium and Pervasive. The former is well known, but ignorance about the latter is leading to increasing blockades on the flow of goods equitably.

In the Premium model, a service is offered for free and if one wants more features – he must pay. This is because the businessman cannot sustain the free service without charging.

The Pervasive model, however, is actually quite prevalent but its secret unknown: Influencers are the first cohort of this movement. Its mechanism of action is simple: the full package is offered for free, but supported by advertisements and then content is generated at such speed through niche specialization that one becomes respected. One exceeds the speed (Time Value) of Money!

Atleast, thats the theory.

Dear Prisoner, Speed Is a LINEAR function

Nobel Laureate, Professor John Nash, posited the solution to Prisoners’ Dilemma and in the same vein succeeded in defining Rationalism mathematically. According to him, it is making ALL decisions based on one algorithm.

As for why Prisoners’ Dilemma is an awful situation in the first place: it is due to it being a problem of “simultaneous” imprisonment for each prisoner.

Years earlier I realized that Money is the price of alienation. You charge a person if you do not know them. If both sides end up charging each other, this is an example of the Prisoners’ Dilemma. One party must relent and pursue an alternate strategy.

While Money is a sincere rating tool, in inefficient markets it involves hustling ~ and polite people – like this Canuck – are not capable of this.

Some one has to be a goalie. The buck has to stop somewhere, literally. For the sober friend who drives his buddies home, Continue.....
