compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
IT WAS during my early preparations of a timeline of stories, for my
AlphaINDEX of Stories website, back at the end of 2011, that I set up an
smile and brought back memories of my posting on secondment from the
UK Ministry of Aviation to Eurocontrol in Bruxelles, prior to the Maastricht
Centre in Beek NL being 'opened for business'; with its first IBM commercial
mainframe derivative of that which sent the men to the moon.
Smiles because we had just heard news that Apple were to release a new
iPad with retina screen driven by Apple's A5X chip with a quad-core
graphics processor, which we pre-ordered and took delivery of in late
March 2012 - and this was the specific device which I had predicted would
revolutionise the mainframe/server/front-end interface, @zaadz, on
release of Apple's first iPhone. Smiles also because of my bemusement
that an IBM senior engineer's early long-term prediction, back in the 1960's -
that mainframes at the core of the global financial system would eventually
fail catastrophically and there would be no-one of those, left alive, that
could fix them - was now being linked to the future of Windows !!!???
It was on my return from secondment to Eurocontrol, to what had now
been transformed into the Civil Aviation Authority, that I first purchased
and read Pirsig's masterpiece and subsequently got hooked on ALL things
to do with the metaphysics of quality (MOQ) - which led on to the discovery
THEREIN lies THE mind-set solution to the globalisation dilemma,
in the context of Frederick Bostiak's statement that -
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living
together in society - they create for themselves, in the course of time,
a legal system that authorises it and a moral code that glorifies it "
... because of the fact that the peoples of our species are at last
awakening to the fact that, globalisation today, has transmogrified into
a conglomerate of self-serving, elitist, LET THEM EAT CAKE oligarchies -
from the USA to the EU, from CHINA to INDIA and from RUSSIA to ISRAEL
and the Middle East etc. etc.
