While I was writing and coding a tribute page on Ayrton Senna, I found out that this quote belonged to him.
“Wealthy men can’t live in an island that is encircled by poverty. We all breathe the same air. We must give a chance to everyone, at least a basic chance.”
We breathe the same air.
Jesus Christ said “Love thy neighbor”.
Not love your countrymen.
But it is unfortunate that certain unscrupulous businessmen violate this very rule, ‘Love thy neighbor’, to make money.
In my former neighborhood there was a wealthy man.
In broad daylight he was a man of the church.
But in the night he sent spies to pry on the neighbors.
Everyone has secrets: Bad deeds. Transgressions. Law violations.
According to this particular businessman secrets are power.
To know other people’s secrets is a way to exploit and/or undermine them.
So how did he do it?
During sleep, the people in the house and his neighbors has access to a person.
Anyone with a basic understanding of how the mind works can influence another person in sleep.
It requires at least two people.
One person will try to influence him.
Pamper him, canoodle him, frighten him, threaten him.
And the second person will intently try to extract information from his mind.
Kind of narcoanalysis. Minus the injection.
It is collectively using more than two people’s resources against a single person.
This businessman is long dead.
But his family still follows his practice.
The world is moving forward.
In his years there were no multimedia players.
Currently, one can plug a mobile phone to the ears before sleeping.
Listen to Mozart, Beethoven, or Bach.
Or hear his own speech he had made in the last sales meeting.
That is how I am still sober to write this blog.
