In the previous invitation to “Sandwich”, Lisbon , Portugal was introduced as a digital nomad and web3 capital. With its multicultural environment, pleasant climate, high-quality seafood, high English proficiency and reasonable tax policies, it has attracted many web3 talents from all over the world to take root and build here.

Last week, the NEARCON conference officially opened in Lisbon. More than 2,500 web3 practitioners gathered here. I was fortunate to meet Mr. Chen Qiufan, a well-known Chinese science fiction writer, who was a guest on my group friend syan podcast (What the Meta), And the podcast guests I invited Steve Shi Xiuxiong and Teacher Li Zixin also interviewed Teacher Chen. In addition, I also met friends from Planet 84000 and readers of Ideal Tun at the scene, and I couldn’t help but sigh that the world we live in is really a global village!

Before attending the NEAR conference, I knew almost nothing about this public chain (do you really have a marketing team?), through the three days of study and communication, I feel that this chain has focused on a lot of main players Games and community projects, especially for creators like me, the most relevant piece of good news from this conference is that the NEAR Foundation has formed a new strategic partnership with the recently established investment firm Caerus, setting up 100 million The US dollar venture capital fund attracts developers to build content community platforms and applications for web3 creators, using technology to change the current content consumption experience and creator value distribution.

When the NEAR team listened to my plan for CY Circle , they also expressed great interest, and even felt that my current experimental process could be used as their classic case in the future. Let us wait and see if there is any cooperation in the future. Have a chance!

In 1932, American geneticist Sewall Wright first proposed the concept of fitness landscape in a paper, describing the relationship between genotype and fitness.

The goal of any species is to reach the highest possible fitness peak (as shown in the diagram below), and whether through genetic mutation or species competition, each species moves along the surface and eventually finds a path to the top of the mountain. If there is another species on another higher mountain, the species on the second highest mountain is theoretically stuck in an evolutionary dead end.

Life is also a process of climbing peaks from the surface or deep valleys. Sometimes in order to reach the highest peak, we need to descend from the top of a lower peak, return to the bottom of the valley, and climb another peak. However, after reaching a peak by rationality or a specific behavior pattern, most people are unwilling to sacrifice physical fitness and existing achievements to return to the bottom, and then they are in a dilemma.

We are living in an era full of life coaches and counselors who have the power to make you rich and strong and take you to the top of your life you want to climb, but when you reach the top you realize it wasn’t what you wanted to climb in the first place When you are on the mountain, or you are confused and overwhelmed at the top of the mountain during the bottleneck period, these mentors and consultants will only teach you how to survive on the top of the mountain, and will not take you down the mountain.

As the saying goes, it is easy to go up the mountain and difficult to go down. When people climb Mount Everest, Sherpa (a tribe in the Himalayas) are hired as guides. The role of the Sherpas is not only to take you up the mountain to take a selfie, but more importantly, to support you all the way back to the base camp on the way down the mountain, which is more likely to be in danger.

In real life we ​​need Sherpas who are beyond rational and have a spirit of exploration to take us down the mountain in order to climb the next mountain, they will tell you what sacrifices you need to make to get down, and then they will hold you Hand, will not slip and fall in the process of going down the mountain.

Finally, an interesting short film is recommended:

Based on the book “Sum” of the same name by neuroscientist David Eagleman, the film shows what life would look like if we added up the time spent on all the trivial things in our lives.

Simply translate the text of the video:

In the afterlife you can relive all of your life’s experiences, but your events are reordered: all moments with the same qualities are grouped together.

You spend two months driving on the street in front of your home and seven months SEX.

You slept for thirty years and sat on the toilet reading magazines five months in a row.

Your broken bones, crashes, cuts to your skin, childbirth and all the physical pain add up to twenty-seven hours.

You spend six days trimming your nails and fifteen months searching for lost items.

The total waiting time in the queue was eighteen months.

Two boring years: staring out the bus window, or sitting in an airport terminal waiting.

Years of study time.

Two hundred days of shower time.

Seventy-seven hours of confusion.

An hour to find out that you forgot someone’s name.

Three weeks to realize I was wrong.

Two days of deceitful time.

Six weeks spent waiting for the green light.

Vomiting for seven hours.

Pure joy is only fourteen minutes.

Laundry for three months.

Fifteen hours to sign.

Two days to tie shoelaces.

Seventy-six days of heartbreak time.

Five weeks of driving and getting lost.

I was thinking about where to eat for three days.

Fifty-one days to decide what to wear.

Nine days of pretending to know what other people are talking about.

Counting money for two weeks.

Eighteen days staring at the refrigerator.

Thirty-four days of fighting against desire.

Watch ads for six months.

Four weeks to think about whether you could use your time better.

Three years to swallow food.

Five Days to Button and Zip…

Now you will realize how happy we are on earth, when the chores of life are all broken down and distributed in each day, you don’t have to endure the tediousness and boredom of all the chores stacked together.

Our life is about jumping from one event to another, everything will pass, and the moment is eternal.
