I have come to the conclusion that I am intellectually bored with pretty much everybody I know and everybody I meet, with the exception of crazy people on the bus. Sean is interesting to talk to, and certainly an intellectual equal, but she is not that interested in knowledge as structures, how that applies to IT in particular, nor how words fit into that idea. My macro to the beginning of the written word is not interesting to most.

I'm thinking through the people that I have talked to, or tried to talk to in the last few years. There were four people that got the base ideas. One heads an incubator run by a famous VC firm, a CTO and founder of quite a few businesses that Yvette worked for. One is the founder of a disaster recovery business pre-crash-pre-crash, somebody Yvette went to highschool with. One is a physicist... Yvette's brother Ernie. One is Yvette's son, Bobo. All of them I have known for many years. I think the biggest fail was a friend of mine, who, after I explained the whole idea, said,"I didn't know there was a program for that." He completely missed everything I had said in the previous half hour or so. Sean, my lover, has read multiple efforts at expressing various ideas, and grokked them, but, again, she is not particularly interested in the investment and growth of the ideas collaboratively.

Part of this is that people don't really care about where we are, how we got here, or where we want to or can go. Now, since I'm skeptical of even the written word itself, I get how my particular version might be off-putting, but it didn't used to be like this, back when we were in school (this is a key point... more on that later). I think that people are generally happy with what civilization gives them, their Matrix steak.

They have their corporate job or their house in the suburbs or their whiskey drinks or cigars or scouting lifestyle that appears genuine. Who am I to say what is truly genuine, right? But regardless, these people are not giving me what I need. I need some intellectual collaboration to grow more, and, right now, I'm going solo, mostly. Now, true, I am able to use my modeling ideas for my job right now, so that is a step forward. But I have no doubt that the broader application over 6,000 years is something I should not bring up with work. It is possible that I am in the process of carving out a paying outlet for these ideas.

There is more than pay, though. We are at an interesting point in the arc: AI is harnessing these ideas, and making it repeatable, avoiding the chimp notches. I can see how this is going down, machines filling in the mind-numbing lack of intellectual interest in anything new, replacing said people with chatbots and self-driving cars* to deliver packages. At the same time, I also understand how fragile the ecosystem is (figuratively and literally). So, part of my passion on this is preserving the mechanisms outside of the DevOps ecosystem. Another part of it is recognizing the cultural patterns, the imprints of the technical ideas over six thousand years.

What to do? There is nothing like wandering over ideas like this in person with drawings scribbled on notebooks with beers or coffees. I suspect that the answer lies in a college town, a new home. At the same time, I find the intellectual atmosphere in Seattle, Portland, Eugene stifling, poisoned because of the PC aspect as well as the entitled street urchin or woke protester. I've decided that I need to find that place. I would prefer to find it in my own country. I suspect that it might be Boone, where Sean has some land. Wherever this place is, it needs intellectually thirsty and adventurous people that have not been poisoned by the majority culture. After Bobo graduates from high school, I am going to find that place. I am going to find people who are interested in the kinds of weird ideas I'm interested in. I want to learn as well. I want that most of all. I want people who will listen to a couple sentences, understand it, and challenge me. I need to grow.

*This is a perfect example of the so-called disruptive ideas avoiding negative externalities in the equation.
