The gold coin theory of human communication

Communications happens when I have a coin of wisdom and I pass it along to another person through the Internet, after which they suddenly have a duplicate of my original coin of wisdom, ideally giving them the desire to duplicate and spread the coin of wisdom himself or herself. unless the inventory of wisdom of my audience increases because of my spreading my goal to them, the communication can be said to have failed.

I have mined many ideas, rich veins of gold from books, old class notes and my own imagination. After all this work, I metaphorically have a leather pouch of golden coins. I melt them with my brain and put them into the screen. Talking is the easiest way to communicate with the screen in this quantity, as I have a lot of gold coins. When I finally am able to melt my gold coins into the screen, I will have put my gold out there for all to see. However, that does not mean that I have communicated yet!

You, and you, and you and you and you. All of you must recognize that the gold is here. You must gather gold. You must want gold, and recognize that what I am offering you is gold. In today’s world it is very difficult to distinguish gold from fools’ gold, from copper, from an illusion. Who can you trust in this world of a million apps and a billion messages?

Everyone wants you to pay attention, but I want to pay attention to you. I want to hear your voice on Twitter, as does everybody tuned into you. You have gold coins of wisdom that need to be spread among the people.

It’s your call. I want you to trust your own voice. I don’t want to be the only person with the voice in the world wide web. I want to hear from you, because I believe in you. Freedom of speech was given to us so that we might use it.
