So, you may have Noticed . . Tribes are Fixed, Come Cultivate a Passion, Create a Network, and some thoughts on human social psychology.

The tribes (aka groups) have looked a little weird.

It's been fixed now, and I dare say it even works.

Come try it.

Join in 2 minutes and just a few steps, or log in and look for tribes along the top. It has an icon of a village crafted dwelling, or sticks, or camp fire depending on how you wish to remember it.

If you want to add your own tribe, you can create one easily by first clicking your user picture, then the (+) and finally selecting “Tribe.”

This will get you to the 'tribal creation console' Or, in simple terms- Have your profile cover, group photo, and what the group is called...kind of ready – at least the first three.

Then make it so.

Hint, I would suggest creating one after something you are passionate about, not necessarily something you are good at.

You can do the other one later, but I would urge you to try the first idea here because it will begin to catalyze a new sense of personal growth and perspective, and such – for you. :–)

Come. Have Fun. Make Stuff. Speak Things. Make Friends. Do New Things and Learn Stuff. Practice and Grow, Gain Knowledge, Go Slow.

This isn't a place you need to be loud, every post is seen- there is no algorithm to bury your thoughts here at www.mytribes.net

You are only limited by the golden rule, and what you can imagine, and how much time you have, and who you can convince to help you, if it's a group thing, but ideally you are daring enough to take the first step, start a group, and then start talking about what that thing means to you, and perhaps even daring enough to share some thoughts or opinions about it, and or maybe even daring and creative enough to write about it or post a few times a week about the thing, and moderate the group. :)

Create New Value, Give it Away, Charge for it, Teach a class, Take a class (so far we need a teacher to offer one!) but we are set up for that. Trade in [ions] on site with other members, (we have our own representative currency on site) Or justly come follow a passion of yours and make a tribe at mytribes.net -

Which you are supposed to see as your tribe, the whole site is to be considered a village, or more accurately- a living eco-system.

We have been doing social networking wrong. But it's not our fault, because it was handed to us- and it looked good at first.

But now that we have seen things like our private conversations on text-based-messenger-communicator-whatever type apps, things we said at dinner showing up later in our news feed, that kind of thing, and all of it really – it sucks. Websites, and software- being sold all the time, constantly, and without much announcement ..

I'm only able to present this article to you because I have spent my entire life tirelessly hacking away at my mind and expanding it, and by all accounts- it is not very large. I cannot claim to know that many things. But my mind is agile. and that is far more important than how much you know, or how many books you have read and have on your shelf, or what podcasts you have downloaded.

The podcasts and all that, all that stuff is fu&& fantastic and are tremendous ways to learn things, everything i just mentioned there.

i am currently high as hell on the combination of a banana, red tart cherries, and properly made al dente pasta, washed down by some Colombian pink bourbon coffee (it's a coffee cultivar, not alcohol; I'm sober. Jun-31-2018)– but goddamn. food neuro-chemistry is fascinating, and various combinations.. yeah- I'll have to see what phyto-chemical interactions there are between the cherries and coffee, but perhaps there is something in the wheat, sauce, and so on that ...you see where this is going :) People are no different, we are as complicated as mixing spices in food.

Sorry my apologies to the religious for using gd* as an expression of measured surprise and astonishment.

The brain chemistry whatever the hell happened with this combination is pretty incredible, I feel as though I need to go sit in the corner now and meditate..

[getting back to the post about mytribes, and realizing that engineers tangent, and we are focused when we work, otherwise nothing we did would work, but sustaining that level of focus into explaining complicated as hell things to people with no working understanding of what we are actually doing- is hard, so please excuse me i am no better than you but i am very tired now. LOL I will return.

I was talking about being human, before I got side-tracked by bananas.

This post, because I totally got side tracked being human eating, and not being focused on this as much in the moment of hunger, – this being me semblancing and presenting my life experience as a functional presentation for others growth in new collaborative project avenues- yeah

being a meta human teacher person here talking about my project so you trust it enough to join and benefit from using it, which is the entire point- for you to enrich your life with this- because it does things for you that facebook cant never touch-

its hard to get people to trust a thing when they don't already know it, even if you're trying to deliver the same experience they want in their hearts, because we have all been screwed so much by capitolisms short deliveries of broken or half promises. im aware, equally wary, but more optimistic perhaps or just doing something about it, so here we all are reading. Thank you for being human and curious about wanting to help other humans enjoy being human more.

For all these words, I am a very simple guy. I just want everyone to truly enjoy their lives, and have some sense of consistent ability to form and create most of their operant reality.

We have to work together, and stop pretending the govt is our parents, and just work together not against anything specifically, – but just work together as adults, towards our common goals.

The veil has lifted and I think we now are entering a new era of understanding- together as a global population- The wizard pulled back the curtain far enough, that I feel most people now understand they really are responsible for their own vitality, security, and station in life. We can hope, and attempt to proceed- what else are we to do but try?

psychologically it is clean and distraction free, without algorithms to fuck around with your emotions, and your ordering of your posts, and the very cadence of which you get the notifications, and that which your friends can see of your posts, and which they cant, and by the way

there's a difference between can see it and didn't see it in the feed because the algorithm did not put that post in the feed, because it thought it was un important. and you did, otherwise you wouldn't have written it....

so this is another reason i made mytribes. because i write a lot of things on facebook intending to teach things or share things or empower others or connect groups together- only to have my links get banned, removed, reported, violating community standards, and any number of foolish horse shit, and all i am trying to do is share links with people. they're usually to a website that talks about something scientific, spiritual, or practical, or cooking. so that therein, this is a problem for facebook, at the volume that which i do it, and 99 % of it is totally fucking buried, you can see why i dont like as they say sticking my finger in the light socket repeatedly. my effort is far better spent, (and i am arguing yours as well) don't think the algorithm favors you, or that you are smarter than it- you're not. I promise. You are not. It doesn't work that way, it's not apples to oranges toots- it's knowing how to make every car on the freeway crash into the car three cars ahead in sequence, versus “i think this because the meme just said so and i feel its right, or i read an article.”

i promise, you will never be smarter than the algorithm. but here's why- it takes a SINGLE aspect of human thought, and then does it a bazillion times. which is, actually very fucking impressive. but- its nothing your brain is ever supposed to be able to do, ever = but yet it is mystifying, and so the brain wonders- am i supposed to be able to do this? what is going on here? and this is all in the subconscious, by the way.

anywho the bananna just wore off, and i found myself in the corner, wearing a tutu and JUST KIDDING. The banana did wear off, but I also made a meme for you while all this was happening.

(Yes I am aware this post is complex, I'm also aware I didn't tell you there was a time limit to finishing it, or that you even had to read any of this. :–)

If you're having fun- you don't need my invitation to continue.

Everyone is for better or worse,—- At all times, doing their best—– but at the level somewhere between a real bad day, and their best known capacity to express love, care, concern, patience, or any other basic human applicable character trait desirable in the situation at hand.

But big time social sites sell your information, and by your information ... (did you forget?)

But big time social sites sell your information, and by your information – I mean everything you type into the website, or the app you log into the service with. Yes, I mean that sincerely. I am also not joking in any way, and I hope that telling you this in plain English is helpful.

At mytribes.net we don't do that, because frankly- it's wrong. It's a very lazy way to attempt to make money.

It is parasitism, plain and simple- and the big frank block on the book is literally the worlds most calculated and accurate intellectual and psychological parasitism experience ever created.. > or thus far known to man short of perhaps, something more visceral and immediate- like attending the Roman Colosseum.

Social networking is not about:

Being pretty, or being a whore, or being a really aggressive idiot man on messenger who ignores all social cues and visual cues, and common sense, as he messages women inappropriately all day. Don't be that guy. You would be FUCKING SHOCKED, at how many men do this online, all day.

You sir, have un managed psychological issues, and this is totally okay. The good news is you have the power to heal yourself. Even if you are at the point where you can't feel your back, your feet, or anything else unless you're actually moving around. Trust, that you are never alone in a human experience, someone else has been there too, and survived it, and become that better person – just like you are secretly hoping in your heart that you can be courageous enough and clever enough to become.

The good news is you can. Here are your first three steps. Well four. 1 Don't shoot the messenger. I am just talking about life, and I didn't mention your name here. Read again, check! If you feel guilty, you definitely need to take these next three things to heart. 1) You need to be honest with yourself, and figure out WHY you are a) doing this b) not getting much success c) routinely being blocked, hint- it does not mean no, it means you're an asshole but the good news, is you can learn- and then not do that anymore. All it takes is recognizing the behavior, and a simple choice.

All it takes is recognizing the behavior, and a simple choice.

(So much of life is just about this one thing here.)

The will-power to carry that behavior modification through , is all up to you!

And let me be true, in saying to you that it is only hard if you expect it to be-,

and you will become an expert at the speed you are willing to spend time focusing on playing with the thing, being a happy person while you're messing about with it, and generally- again being balanced.

You can't work on something every time until your eyes cross, you have to insert balance into things.

It is also not fast fast fat flash lash and pizazz, who can say the coolest stuff, write the smartest article, give out the most likes or loves, or who is the best debater, who is the best troll, or even who is the most useful person to talk to in a crisis.

Oh, and I'm re-designing that crazy little blue double arrow thing that scrolls upward, because it needs to be snazzier. Have fun!
