Tip #2 in my Secret To Staying Young For Zero Cost: Beware Of Entropy.

Every physical thing rises and falls.

Like the Roman Empire.

Like ghost towns fallen from their heyday.

Like us.

We’re firstly young then we get old.

And when we’re young we don’t think about old.

In today’s modern world we don’t want to think about old.

Until, one day, old arrives.

That’s entropy

So my Tip #2 is: don’t ever think old.

Always think you’re young.

Even if you think you’re getting old.

Always think young.

Always do young things.

Think young thoughts.

Be with young people.

Always thinking’

Keep the weeds out of your mind.

That’s my secret to cast entropy aside.

Now you know about it you can do something about it.

How hard can it be to always think you’re young.

Is this the new trend?

Is young the new old.

It’s also a law of physics.

Known as the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

So why don’t we know about this?

Why?

Why does our body get struck down with physical illnesses when we still have an active brain, a mind, a soul?

But entropy only cares about your body, not your mind or your soul.

Why must it be so.

So what if the only way to stop entropy is to intervene when we’re still young?

Has entropy always been a missing factor?

The elephant in the room.

We live in a time when we have knowledge and wisdom, or the source of, at our fingertips.

I mean the fingertips we use to search, or to chat, online for whatever we need.

In an instant.

Does wisdom come from having adventures and living a full life?

Today it’s easier to have adventures from where we are.

Adventures of the mind.

Staying young.

That shouldn’t stop us from living our adventure.

Do you ever think about living longer, or better, because of what you think?

About what’s in your mind?

Think about it.

Let’s tackle entropy right now.

Costs nothing.

Take care.

Is It True, We Get Nothing For Nothing & There Are No Free Lunches?

I know, these are two widely accepted ideas we have come to live by.

Don’t expect to get anything for nothing.

You need to earn what you receive.

Wait a minute,

My experience of the past 30 years has been quite the opposite.

After I lost everything when my one-man freelance copywriting business and I went bankrupt, leaving me with nothing, something amazing happened.

Total strangers came from everywhere to help me out.

They expected nothing in return.

But then, instinctively, I sought to give back for their kindness.

I don’t quite know how to explain it but the only payment I could give back was of myself.

Nothing of value.

Just me.

I had nothing else to give.

And therein lies a hidden secret of life, an unrecognised unseen Law of Life.

I’ve described how this happened to me for 30 years of my life in my book ‘Back to the Wall’.

Read the book and see how this Law worked for me.

This hidden Law of Life is expressed in Newton’s Third Law of Motion where we have to complete the formula, fill in the missing part, to make it work.

For every action in one direction, the Law states, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

So when we are faced with a generous action in our direction we must offer the equal and opposite reaction to complete the working of the Law of Physics.

This is an otherwise unknown Law of Life that will always operate in your favour because it’s a Law of Physics.

Except that it’s the non-physical equivalent of the physical Law.

So are there non-physical Laws that are equally true of all physical Laws?

I believe so.

At this point you must be asking, even so, how did you survive?

While accepting a small disability pension, for my disabilities, I have given back by continuing to use my one true talent, to write.

Books.

You can find them here.

But what about everyone else, how are they to survive without a basic income?

I believe that what is called a ‘Universal Basic Income’ has a lot of merit where everyone would automatically receive from the government a fixed basic income every month.

Everyone would be entitled to earn an independent income as well, run a business, have a job, just as before, but there would always be a basic income guaranteed so that no-one need live in poverty.

No-one.

Of course, we would all be free to use this basic income as we wish, some would use it to live free of debt, others would be tempted to squander it away.

There are pros and cons.

There will be some who will rort the system (just as there are today).

The system has been tried in many places around the world.

And has been supported by Martin Luther King Jnr, Sir Richard Branston, economist Milton Friedman and Facebook founder Chris Hughes.

You can read about the Universal Basic Income and its pros and cons here.

I’d be pleased to read your comments on what I have written here.

Best wishes.
