Your Life is an App

You know what an app is: a software application that runs on a specific platform, such as Windows, Android, Linux or iOS. A software platform is associated with a hardware platform, such as a PC, smartphone or Mac. Your life is also an app that runs on the platform of your consciousness and ontology, associated with your body.

This is true whether you’re aware of it or not. Most of what we perceive and experience is software. Our bodily senses and other hardware inputs are run through an extensive processing system that abstracts their information into symbols for more efficient processing.

Plan Z

My name is Dharmasar, and I’m starting a disruptive startup, The Dharmasar Solution. What could possibly go wrong? Everything, and more. Of course, I have a Plan A and a Plan B, even Plans C and D.

But what if everything goes wrong? What if nobody buys it? After all, I’m only trying to give people unlimited intelligence and prosperity by recontextualizing one of the world’s great religions, LOL. But you know what people say about building a better mousetrap. Continue reading Plan Z

The Scope of The Dharmasar Solution

Since my whole life crashed and burned at age 64, I have been reconstructing my worldview from scratch. Instead of basing my ontology on faith as I did before, this time I grounded it firmly on observation and experience. I documented the process as I went along. The Dharmasar Solution is the result, the systematic collection of my work for over two years.  Continue reading The Scope of The Dharmasar Solution

Platforms and Apps

Windows is a platform; Word is an App. OS X is a platform; Safari is an App. The Cloud is a platform; the Internet is a platform. Whatever you build using them is an App.

The Dharmasar Solution is a platform—your dream is an App. Got it?

The Buddha discovered Dependent Origination, the process of becoming. Used ignorantly, Dependent Origination leads to suffering. Used intelligently, it leads to happiness and enlightenment. Dependent Origination is a powerful platform, with a programming language and development environment you can use to build any kind of App. Any kind of App! This makes it possible to live your dream.

Compulsory Education Spoils Success

We all want to live our dreams. What gets in the way, more often than not, is our education—or actually, the lack of one. Schooling is not education. In fact, in many ways it is the opposite. According to John Dewey of Decimal System fame, one of the founders of American education policy:

“Every teacher should realize he is a social servant set apart for the maintenance of the proper social order and the securing of the right social growth. In this way the teacher is always the prophet of the true God and the usherer in of the true kingdom of heaven.” — Dewey, Pedagogic Creed (1897)

Underground History of American Education

John Taylor Gatto’s The Underground History of American Education is an eye-opener. It describes the origin and design philosophy of the American public school system.

“The secret of American schooling is that it doesn’t teach the way children learn and it isn’t supposed to. It took seven years of reading and reflection to finally figure out that mass schooling of the young by force was a creation of the four great coal powers of the nineteenth century. Nearly one hundred years later, on April 11, 1933, Max Mason, president of the Rockefeller Foundation, announced to insiders that a comprehensive national program was underway to allow, in Mason’s words, ‘the control of human behavior’.”

That is why we developed Matrix Learning based on the original teaching of the Buddha.

The State of The Dharmasar Solution

The Dharmasar Solution is a big piece of work: a bridge from western philosophy to the teaching of the Buddha. I’ve been developing it for over two years now, and it’s nowhere near done. The basic arch is complete; to make it useful, now we have to build the rest. Continue reading The State of The Dharmasar Solution
