About Adam Soul
Around forty years ago I first began learning about the environment. I read some books and articles, watched some documentaries, and joined a couple environmental organizations. Before then I was in the US Marine Corps for three years and did ok but had grown up in a home that had left me confused and generally having a difficult time adjusting to life. I had also suffered unknowingly from a condition that had profoundly affected me until I found out about it and had it corrected, but by then I was already about 43. I’m saying this because I wish I’d of remained involved in the environmental movement but my life had been such that I just didn’t want to think about anything heavy anymore. So, I essentially dropped out. I worked as a CAD drafter, then a lead CAD drafter, then an inspector, and finally a construction manager. During much of this time I lived in Bellevue, Washington and was fortunate to have a few friends that worked for Microsoft. Knowing them helped me understand the capabilities of computer technology.
About 30 years ago I began to develop the perception that money was a poison. This perception has stayed with me and I’ve often found myself diving into the study of it, and watching humanity under its influence. In the summer of 2017 I heard about abrupt climate change. It came to me then that humanity needed to have the perception that money was a poison, but I didn’t know how that perception could be used or how I could get humanity to see it. So in the fall of 2017 I retired early to learn how. A few months later I met an ex-Microsoft executive who was trying to get people interested in a program he was developing that tracked conversations using AI robots. I got the concept of combining intelligences through knowing him. Since then, development of how the perception that money is a poison can help humanity has become clear. How to get this perception out for the world to see, however, has not become so clear. I think that this is where I, and the world, could really use some help.
That’s all I have to say about me right now, except to add that I’m only human and far from perfect.
