Tides Of Change - Bridge Is An Intellectual Game.

There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, lead onto fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures. ~ William Shakespeare.

We can either go with the tide moving along with the effect of outside forces or swim against the tide, by doing something that is in opposition to the general movement of things. Or continue pretty much doing what we are doing just now to tide us over, until something happens by it's own accord but of course the tide will not turn at all. As time and tide waits for no man, things will not wait nor change by not making a significant difference or creating meaningful change. The latter I believe will accomplish more results by turning the tide, to cause a reversal in the direction of events. This cause and effect will have an extremely positive effect on mankind and a reversal in public opinion. Cyclical? man made? That is the question but to do the same thing over and over again, is borderline insanity. "Doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results is insanity." As Dear Old Uncle Albert Einstein used to say. Furthermore as our other Dear Old Uncle Buckminster Fuller also used to say "You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete."

Could these prolific thinkers ever have predicted or imagined a World that builds and grows but hasn't really truly evolved. Well they did, as they pretty much predicted what Stephen Hawking's predicts today, we're all doomed and the end is nigh. Why do we think we've advanced any further as a race when we haven't attained or achieved an meaningful equilibrium and or balance with our ecology that feeds us, along with our environment that should protect us, if in turn we return the favour and gesture, by protecting and ultimately safeguarding it. Through practices of sustainability that offer longevity for the whole of and entirety of humanity. Why do we focus on conquering space and exploring other planets when we haven't truly or really explored the optimum of the possibilities and potential on our own circular habitat and ball of fun. 

QU & ARK has an abundant and vast ocean of ideas, many of which like our dear planet haven't truly been explored but do in there simplest form stem from different cultures, periods and historical events, plus ideas, concept and visions ideologies and philosophies but I do hasten to add with a futurist twist. That may at that particular time, been before their time. Admittedly enhanced, tweaked and refined, plus extended or further elaborated on but never the less a culmination of ideas historically explored that were not refined to their optimum, sad but true. Many of which are simple solutions for our extremely complex problems. Hey but it wouldn't be the first time that someone has over engineered what is in essence and it's rawest form an extremely simple idea. Our global and extensive collaborations with academics, professionals, kindred spirits and like minded people substantiate a desire, want and need for necessary change and a vital difference. But as I continually say "Innovation invariably only impacts those that control a market, whilst me, you, us, we all benefit." Scott Northcott. 

You can decide whether you wish to continue playing a game of poker in which a few players ultimately win, along with the house. But it's very rare that one should wander or stray into a Casino that has altruistic/allocentric values or principles. As the saying goes their in it to win it. Bearing in mind there your chips their playing with. But should they really be gambling with our ecology, environment and keeping any cards close to their chest? I believe not! 

But there are always choices in life and alternatives, as recent boycotts of brands and organisations proved via loop holes and tax avoidance scandals. Through the public distaste or rather disgust, that people power does finally prevail.  So if you are not happy or ecstatic or elated build some bridges and join a table were the players, play for sustainable fun and futures but have an apparent motive and visible agenda which consist of longevity for humanity beyond all other motives and vested interests. 

The smart money that is morally and ethically created but is influenced and stems from other values and principles other than profit and greed will create the necessary tides of change and vital difference but it will not and wont prevail from individuals or entities that have vested interests in an ideology and philosophy that has fundamentally failed.

QU & ARK is not a religion but values all life nor are we political party but we respect the principle of fairness. 

P.S. The people that take the time to read my blog are intelligent and astute enough to decipher historical and current events themselves. But I also suspect anticipate future events too. A poignant and daunting quote via a recent re-watch of a movie The Day The Earth Stood Still "We humans apparently change on the precipice of disaster." So said John Cleese the Professor Barnhardt to Keanu Reeves the Alien Klaatu. But as the plot thickened and then unraveled via another re-watch of the movie Chain Reaction it reiterates and reconfirms my quotation "Innovation invariably only impacts those that control a market, whilst me, you, us, we all benefit." Scott Northcott.

Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"

Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.

Should Donald Trump have been given the go-ahead for his golf resort?

Thinking out of the box

Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

Your Country Needs You

Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country. Or go further what can you do for the people of this World? "Be a Social Responsible Entrepreneur" Action!

I Stand For Goodness What Do You Stand For?

We all have the ability to stand up and be counted. Lift our heads above the parapet, make a difference, be that change. Especially unique and innovative ethical ideas for the better of all.

Other Local Heroes

Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
