Back in late January, ReTech sent me this email. He gave me permission to distribute it.

My observations over my life have shown me that once humans create an organization it becomes a living system independent of its creators and members. To wit, it satisfies some basic rules of a living organic system. If you look at Apple or any other corporation, this becomes painfully apparent. Same goes for any government agency.

Image via al tuttle.

  1. collect resources / food to sustain life
  2. protect self
  3. propagate self
  4. spread / integrate into established environment
  5. create perception of need AKA mask / hide to help protect and spread

This came to light when I was reading about the March of Dimes’ original charter and how they evolved.

This is all my opinion and completely subject to the bullshit rule: everything is 99% bullshit and 1% truth. So take it for what it is.

ReTech is one of the most interesting people I’ve met through this project. He’s on Facebook as well.
