“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry. – Ephesians 4:26
“I know that my marriage looks like the picture of success, but behind closed doors of my private castle, life is very different.” – Patrick Morley in his book ‘The man in the mirror.’
Can you imagine an altruistic, selfless being having any such emotional problems? Emotional brain garbage is the fuel that causes all the emotional and behavioral problems. Reality/truth is +2. A -2 mind takes the +2 reality and interprets it as -2! Thus there is a huge disconnect with reality and the consequences of -2 perception is -2 behavior. On the other hand a +2 person takes a -2 event and deals with it in the best +2 manner possible. He does not let a -2 event make his behavior -2. So the way is to make your self +2.
However as Confucius said you do not have to be wise to know and act the wisdom way. Learn the +2 way and act on it! As knollers we must always be focused on sharing our knowledge with the world. Even if there are other knollers who may not like us and may even try to destroy us. We must always treat them with utmost respect and still give them their due.
I just noticed that our bulletin board now has 28 single stars! So there are just those who hate our board? These people should come out in the open and post their reasons why our board deserves a single star. But we have to ignore these ratings and continue to work in a +2 manner.
“Be patient…until the Lords coming” – James 5-7
If we are on the right path then eventually the Lord/truth will come through for us. I am sure reality/truth always wins and if we are right then victory will eventually be ours.
‘I hope SK comes out with a similar title on knol.‘ This is a very insightful book. I took a quick look on the web. The very subject matter covered shows that it takes into account all relevant subject matter. The essentials of life knowledge consist of two distinct and inter dependent competencies. The bottom line is the mastery of the ropes of life where the most essential is how to live your life and the equally important how to make your life. Thus becoming a master of your chosen profession and the master of your brain/emotional intelligence.
In business the most important factor is the expertise in your chosen field and almost as important is your emotional relationship with your ‘success factor threshold’. Which is dependent on your self image. Your self image determines your emotional relationship with your success factor. Your success factor partly determines the threshold of such life outcomes as your money position, even more so your emotional relationship with money, status and fame.
I am guessing this book covers all the essentials of emotional and regular intelligence. However the only new insight I can add to this is to again point out that even in business education we must include at least one chapter on a step by step outline specifying how to become a master of ones own emotional intelligence. More specifically we must aim straight for wisdom education. Just as MB said money is our 6th sense I can say that wisdom is our main sense! Look at the chaos in the world due to EBG controlled behavior. Look at the mess and cheating and rivalry in business due to our lack of wisdom education.

on true self / discussion (7/9) i wrote :
“first of all primal therapy review shows, that what SK is calling garbage, is a psychical defense, an armour against the attacks of life . the question is : is it possible to get rid of this armour without getting rid of the the attacks of life ? in the long run the answer seems : no ! (it’s like be naked in the winter)
but if we understand the team as a social womb we may ask : is it possible to get rid of this armour in our knol life ? and in the long run the answer seems : yes ! (our very own SK may show us how we can practise his method in our knol life)“
so, show us the implications for our team .
in my dictionary i found for “naked” : in its birthday suit .
in a discussion with AK i wrote :
“what we need is especially communicative intelligence” (perhaps there is a better word for this)
so i think, what emotional intelligence is in real life, comunicatve intelligence is on knol .
One of the most amazing writers I have found is Lin U Tung. His book, ‘The importance of living’ is one of my favorite books. He even understood the essence of Indian wisdom. His book ‘The importance of India’ on Indian philosophy is as good as any. Even his book ‘The importance of China’ is just as good. Apart from the Bible that takes the cake when it comes to wisdom insights I found ‘The Sufis’ by Idries Shah extremely insightful.
I am also voting for PG. I do not understand what you mean by ‘please show us the implications for our knol-life’.
Jagadeesh M was an inspiration for me to write a Knol, which make the activities in Knol transparent. If you want, you can add your Feedburner: Activities on Knol
7/15 KS @ SK
wisdom is to implement the great in the small.
so, as i have written on true self / discussion (7/9), please show us the implications for our knol-life .
a new bulletin-board is the last possibility, if there is no other solution . you again propose KVSS, KVSS proposed PG and i proposed A .
i think, if we decide to make a new knol, we need a decision of our knol star .

Throughout this knol adventure I have sought your valuable opinion. I started the following knol but I did not publish it because some people may say that I am blowing my own trumpet. What do you think? After all I am trying to help leverage the latent wisdom talent on a universal scale and people think in terms of self mastery only for individuals I am stressing for self mastery for whole groups and countries. Countries can form their foreign and economic polices etc on +2 values. Wars and rivalries can be solved through wisdom. Peace is a fruit of the wisdom tree. With no wisdom tree there is little real possibility of peace.
The importance of my work.
Ignore it at your own peril and at the peril of the whole world!
“What I think a great leader does, a great coach does , is understand what kind of talent you have and then you help people leverage that talent so they can achieve what they never thought they were capable of”. – David C. Novak in NY Times of 7/12. There is one talent that is almost universally present in each and every human being – the latent talent to become wise.
Look at all the original and cutting edge ideas I have and yet it is going nowhere. Without the support of people like you it will have even less affect. Once you become coauthor you have proven to be an effective master at taking good care of the knol. So please do not discount your own importance. KS you are just as essential to the Sages knol as I am; and as is SKS to the Wit knol.
how can i remove myself without removing the page ?
sorry for not reacting on your co-author invitation on Sages of Wisdom knol . this is because I think this knol is a very good and clever idea YOU had and because I write no one sentence I do not deserve to be named a “co-author”.
gratulation for mastering the header 🙂
7/13 – SKS removed myself from co-author of Wit knol
@A, SK and the rest of the company: I removed myself as a co-author from the Wit knol. This is because I think this knol is a very good and clever idea YOU had and because I write one sentence I do not deserve to be named a “co-author”. Unfortunately I do not have the time to be a co-author to other knol (actually I have little time to spend on my own knols…). But thanks anyway! I will continue posting, writting comments and being a co-author in this Knol!
Knol Sub-Directory – Management Subjects is the knol having various subdirectories on management subjects.
Any ideas on swot analysis of knol.
You are welcome to read Knol on How to Optimize knol articles to Rank in First page. This is an open collaboration knol and looking for all your contribution in some means
SWOT Analysis of Knol
- Started by Google Which is a savvy player in Website business domain.
- Technical competence of Google in software as well as in efficienty using hardware to deliver exceptional service to website visitors.
- Knol has positioned itself a knowledge site committed to promote online learning (It has not given undue importance to advertising).
- Late entry into the market with a well established market leader.
- No special technology innovation in the platform.
- Low key entry.
- Lack of a visible “knowledge expert team” that is guiding the roll out.
- Revenue model for authors (First year nobody made any significant revenue).
- Many institutes have not provided publishing opportunity to their faculty.
- PhD theses can be published on knol.
- School/College/Institute/Alumni Magazines can have knol versions.
- Management Development Course Modules can be hosted on knol.
- While negative publicity has subsided it may resurface as competitors feel if they cannot attack now, there is no chance in the future.
I need inputs from many knol authors in making the analysis accurate and robust.
Again you have the last word!
@ KVSS, PG, AK, SKS, KS, A, MB.
I think I figured out why the banks are not lending money in spite of the huge financial help and pressure from the government.
Please post a comment on the above knol if you want to coauthor this knol.
All the banks are renegotiating old debts. My wife owed a bank 14,000.00. Her lawyer negotiated the loan down to 10,000.00. No bank in their right mind is going to lend money in this kind of environment where a company or individual may borrow money and then turn around and try to renegotiate a lower payment. I think the govt. has to funnel money through some semi-government agencies. If there are no such agencies then the govt. must create them. Or some creative way must be found where the banks must be forced to give out more loans to the very same people/businesses who have successfully renegotiated their loans down to paying back much less than they borrowed.
Suppose you lent a hundred dollars to someone and the situation is such that you are happy if he pays you back fifty. Then he comes back for another loan of a hundred dollars. You have already just lost by loaning him recently. Will give him another loan again? This is the situation the banks are in and you cannot blame them for hesitating to give loans to the very people who have caused them losses in the recent past. But unless businesses have more capital the economy will keep struggling and the economic crisis will continue.
Can our team come up with some solutions?
A challenge to all knol authors? Please give your ideas?
How to come out of the present crisis – Money to consumers or money to business man? Is consumer in more distress or businessman in more distress? Should business man be allowed to become an employee? Should he be supported to survive as a businessman? What are the options for the society? Who should sacrifice now? Rich – Super Rich – Poor or super poor? Should government support big business firms, medium size businesses, small businessmen or employees who lost their jobs by direct subsidy to them?

My Knol Directory – List of Interesting Knol Lists project gave some interesting ideas. One of them is Knol Sub-Directory – Management Subjects. This directory of interesting knols on management points out that there are many subjects and topics on which knols are to be written by knol authors. The scope for writing knols is vast even now.
Second attempt is Mechanical Engineering – Knol Sub-Directory. This knol clearly shows that there is enormous scope for writing knols in the area of mechanical engineering. If you know some of your colleagues in these areas please inform the need and scope for writing knols.

Angela, since you are a movie director what about all of us creating a collaborative movie scenario?

7/7 – SKS @ All (The “aliens” scenario)
There are many factors affecting how we look at other nations and how we feel as citizens of a specific nation or as part of the world. Most countries have differences with neighboring countries and that is one major factor “defining” national identity. But what if aliens came from outer space threatening to kill all humankind? It is a very imaginary scenario but capable of pointing to the right direction: Wouldn’t that make everybody start immediately thinking as “humans” instead of thinking as “Greeks”, “Americans”, etc…?
Suggesting to merge all national days into one, as a first step to merge all nations into one 😉
Yes. Happy Independence day to all USA citizens. They have done a lot for the world in the modern days. They are absorbing people from many countries even today and developing them economically.
You can a recommend one knol from your knol portfolio for special attention of knol visitors. You can change that knol periodically.

Hello to everybody! Happy Independence Day to ye Americans (including meself) and a happy fourth of July to everyone else. (That was a very lame joke, I beg your pardon.) Sorry I have not been posting recently, but things are quite stressful in the world of stars and fame. I’m seriously thinking about a documentary…
But anyway, I haven’t died, so I wish everyone a happy month of July. Oh, and congrats to KS for the Whuffy he earned! 🙂
7/6 SK @ KVSS & PG
We need to have social control and keep curbs on individual freedom because the majority cannot handle total freedom. The bottom line for most humans is that their behavior/attitude is powered by their self image. And even most leaders are over ambitious driven by their trophy self image. The self image puts people in their own emotional holes that prevents them from selfless and altruistic behavior. Just imagine a +2 mind behaving in a -2 manner. Or a -2 mind acting selfless. Yes there are gangsters who set up charitable institutions but that is mostly to satisfy their own ego. Or because by the end of their lives they become obsessed with their after life punishments. Emotional intelligence covers every aspect of life and yet its highest stage – wisdom, is still largely ignored. I can quote hundreds of insights from the holy scriptures where the theme is the same – become your full potential. Just imagine where the American economy and for that matter every aspect of life in America would be if the majority had a +2 emotional mind.
Having grasped the concept of wisdom after digesting the insights of the first prophet – the first sage of wisdom – Zoroaster to our current sages Prof. Pinker and Prof. Critchley I can state clearly what is wisdom and how it can be taught on a mass scale and not only to individuals but even to groups and countries. Just imagine two wise self masters negotiating peace between two warring countries. Please read my knol ‘Peace’.
The highest destiny of every mind is self mastery; which is powered by wisdom. It is our own traditional and cultural and ethnic/religious/group values that put us in our individual and collective holes. It is clear to me that I alone cannot make much of an impact. The significance of my work to be fully appreciated, let alone considered for implementation, I need more main stream heavy weights who can support and take my insights further.
What I am hoping is that people like our very own KVSS, PG, AK, SKS, A, CQ, MB and KS will start identifying insights from the Bible, Koran,and the Gita, coupled with the insights from the sciences and start applying the laboratory method to these insights just as I have been doing. I have not even scratched the surface yet; you all can take it to the next level.
A philosopher can be a wise man who takes the questions of philosophy and provides the answers in the domain of science. A researcher who takes parts of philosophy and converts them into science. He expands the frontiers of science into the domain of philosophy.

I think we have an opportunity to introduce the wisdom factor in behavioral finance. We can make the market players wake up to the results of super mature emotional intelligence. How their outside in information on the stock market can be mastered by an inside out super mature emotionally intelligent attitude.
I see very few rules / principles that should be the supervision criteria for the watchdogs, more than a regulation maze (usually obsolete and with perverse effects), for markets to be ethical:
* You shall not rig the market (creating bogus transactions)
* You shall not rig information (the whole sub prime business was done behind an apparently scientific smoke screen)
* You shall put enough of your own money, not just betting with other people’s money (over leveraging)
Well, you grasped well the core of what I see as the two approaches of stock valuation that have to be combined: the endogenous one (fundamentals) and the exogenous one (market players attitudes).
Just imagine the chaos if like most of us; Gd was His self image!
My latest knol: The wisdom of behavioral finance
This knol is inspired by PG’s Behavioral Finance site.
7/3 SK @ Team
To all our fellow Americans a very happy 4th!
I hope we get out of this nightmare economic mess soon.
When it comes to money there are two fundamental aspects that have to be taken into account. As PG pointed out money is a tool. With any tool there are two factors involved. The tool itself has to be as efficient and practically beneficial as possible and the user of the tool must be a master at using the tool. As I am no economist I will focus on how to become a master of using money where others may focus on how to improve the fundamentals of money itself.

7/1 KS about Money Philosophy
(couldn’t write on philosophy debates because i want to see what K(yriacos) has to say)
i saw an interesting struture of merchandise without money (6 wares – 15 relations) and with money (7 wares – 6 relations (where money is a ware, but a special ware)) : structure-of-money
so money is a practical tool, as PG and SK said.
btw. if one of the wares is common (e.g. salt) it might serve also as currency for the other wares .
there is another root of money, with philosophical impacts :
if i have no wares, i can give a clay tablet or another promissory note .
if i give it to A, A can give it to B, B to C and so on, till e.g. F gives it back to me .
now i have payed my dept and can destroy the promissory note .
if i do not and moreover make some new promissory notes then i have invented money out of nothing – and that’s the mechanism of every financial crises .
the question is : can we make a better money ?
@ KVSS & SK
thanks for the feed back, especially the W100 🙂
there is more stuff I’ll have to translate, especially some reviews which we have to discuss .
