You step into traffic and a car is about to hit you. You notice this, and you have milliseconds to react. Do you jump left or jump right? If you keep standing and do nothing, you will die. If you make the wrong choice, you will die.
Life is nothing more than these milliseconds stretched out. Both a person’s life – mine, yours – and the life of humanity. Things are moving forward, with a 100 ways to succeed, but 10 000 000 ways to fail, and failure is final. The only thing in life that genuinely makes sense is to use these stretched-out milliseconds and get to some of the 100 ways to succeed.
In other words, what we collectively and individually must accomplish is to “squeeze” the possible futures into this tiny, but important set of outcomes.
My name is Dominik Tujmer and I started this blog a couple of years ago to write about what I call Overhuman. Here’s a decent intro about what it is to be Overhuman. The idea is this: a person with superior mental and physical capabilities. A Bene Gesserit, a Jason Bourne, a Sherlock Holmes. Someone smart, fast, tactical, perceptive, deadly, decisive, better than the average.
