One of the best ways to ‘kill’ off any emotional connection between the audience and a fictional character in a story is to make them unkillable.
Superhero comics/films fall for this trap particularly often.
Once you can wind back time, go to an alternate universe, or revive everyone with a magic stone, death no longer means anything, and there’s suddenly no danger.
The story becomes flat and stale.
If you already know what the outcome is going to be, where is the risk? What’s the reward?
You could be watching a character fighting for their lives but still be disinterested because the outcome is predetermined. You can see what the writers have done, and it takes you out of the story.
The manipulation creates ripples within the ‘universe’, and things no longer make sense. This also often mirrors reality…
Reviews aren’t accurate.
Films are given fake scores.
It doesn’t seem to matter if a film isn’t commercially successful.
It’s as if there’s no risk.
Over the past few years, the world has felt more like one of these badly written budget sci-fi fan fiction novels.
But who’s writing it?
All of our daily interactions in life are driven by exchanging value, and money often serves as the medium of exchange.
If there’s something wrong with this crucial piece of technology, the money, things start to get a little weird.
It becomes harder to measure our daily transactions, and these new incentives drive people and businesses to make decisions that seem irrational.
Like a character that’s died and been revived 100 times, there are ‘zombie’ companies and institutions that remain alive when they really should be dead.
Cheap, manipulated money keeps them alive, which takes away the risk, which takes away the energy that makes businesses and the people in them thrive and create value.
Bitcoin isn’t about tearing everything down.
It’s about bringing back balance and allowing the ‘free market’ to resume the cycle of life.
Destruction and creation are part of that.
When there is no risk or reward, what’s the point?
Time is precious because it is finite.
If you waste your time, there are consequences.
If you waste money, there should be consequences.
This (usually) makes us strive to take action and manifest new things into the world.
If the money isn’t finite, if ‘value’ can be created at will without any work by a select few, the balance becomes tilted and slowly but surely, things become corrupted.
Bitcoin is a signal that lets us measure value correctly, enabling the market to take actions based on reality.
There is risk, it can be scary; it requires a degree of responsibility, but it’s real, and it’s something you can control.
Bitcoin is bringing reality back to money, and that’s a good thing.
If you want to bring reality back to your savings, Bitcoin allows anyone to accumulate and store value in a monetary system with a finite supply that is verifiable. We make it easy to build a savings plan at FastBitcoins.
