Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) was an American writer, philosopher, and ethnobotanist, who advocated paths of shamanism, and the use of hallucinogenic substances (primarily plant-based psychedelics) as a means of increasing many forms of human awareness. Terence Kemp McKenna, certainly had a way of poetically articulating his ideas.
PACETULSA involved in Transportation Policy initiatives speaks to “valued subscriptions of social change” based upon ideas pushed forward by surveilled respondent’s from many alternate civic representations of “our life’s leased humanity.” Although, for this forum, I would like to address, altered reality and lowered perceptions which may consequently affect judgement.
One of Terence’s most memorable metaphors:
“What civilization is… is 6 billion people trying to make themselves happy by standing on each other’s shoulders and kicking each other’s teeth in. It’s not a pleasant situation. And yet you can stand back and look at this planet and see that we have the money, the power, the medical understanding, the scientific know-how, the love, and the community to produce a kind of human paradise.”
McKenna addresses hyper-competitive environments which are symptomatic of modern capitalist socio-economic paradigm models.
American culture glorifies competition. Many U.S. patrons would argue that “competition drives innovation and progressive content.” Discussions lead to actions, and I’m sure McKenna agrees that competition is not essential to invention of modern world thought. McKenna’s question,: “Yes, but when will there ever be enough hyper-competitive adversaries?”
Noteworthy in a PACETULSA NETWORK publication called, “THE LEGAL CONTEXT OF HUMAN DECISIONS,” PACETULSA seeks to address Terence McKenna’s metaphorically complex prognosis on the human condition and hyper-competitive capitalism from a pragmatic position. This scholarly comparative is not a way to silently support facets of drug- culture.
Competitive advantage is absent when “completitive capitalism,” leverages businesses against competitors. Better and greater value for some purchases means customers trade in consumable exchange for advice marketed through omni-channel buying or purchasing signals. The monetary/ time exchange is based on availability, expertise, statistical data and intuition. Company industry leaders basically define “value” of products, goods and services by demand for those particular events instead of products.
Advertising products or services with lower prices or higher-quality packaging heightens the interest of consumers. Expedient delivery of commercial merchandise entices the buyer to continue to choose one service provider over another one.
Target-markets, usually value seeking consumers in the lower to moderate income level, recognize unique products or services that are afforded to and marketed for “them.” This is the reason behind “big-box” brand loyalty, or why customers prefer one particular product or service over another.
Value proposition is important when understanding competitive advantage. If the value proposition is effective, that is, if the value proposition offers clients better and greater value, it can produce a competitive advantage in either the product or service. The value proposition can increase customer expectations and choices.
Humans affect Learner Model Systems (LMS) originating in societal costs, which alter future human decisions and behavior.
Modular Networks online offer …
Modularity-Consumers heterogeneity, feedback, and emergence by engaging audiences with technological innovations in crosswalk procurements (i.e., HAWK” = High Intensity Activated Crosswalk) warning and controlling motorist behavior at marked, unsignalized crosswalks.
Assisting pedestrians crossing a street or highway almost always “sparks feelings of value; integrity and moral decency… Not to mention it exceeds goals of most Public Safety initiatives.
Almost all consumption data collection whether, physical measurements, behavioral observations, digital archives, or scientific reports contribute to understanding human biological geographic studies. Including factors indexed when “competitive capitalism” exists.
THE LEGAL CONTEXT OF HUMAN DECISIONS “ignites” interesting health education programs where priority is given to implementing policies necessary to achieve desired change and public safety action(s). These suppositions come directly in conflict with drug-culture ethos/ doctrine.
