Michael Ten Is Me

Michael Ten is a pen name of mine. I consider myself to be an artist, author, futurist, and social entrepreneur.

I have published a few short books. They include Outlaw Psychiatric Slavery: Reasons for Outlawing Civil Commitment and the Insanity Defense, Radical Life Extension: Psychological, Metaphysical, and Political Implications, and Attempt to Utilize Cryonics: Why Utilizing Human Cryopreservation Is Ultimately Desirable. They are available on Amazon.

I want to see aging defeated. The book Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime by Aubrey de Grey and Michael Rae has influenced me significantly.

I want to see psychiatric slavery outlawed. In my education, I was tasked with reading some of the ideas of psychiatrist Thomas Szasz. After my formal education, I read over a dozen of his books. They have influenced me significantly. Some of his books include Psychiatric Slavery and Suicide Prohibition: The Shame of Medicine.

I have valuable ideas to share and spread. I also am interested in current events.

Cheers. Hello.

Social Media Sites/Apps That Share Revenue With Contributors

There should be a social media website and app that share revenue with content contributors. Social media sites should share revenue with users.

Medium, Facebook, and Reddit all overlap. Twitter, Facebook, Quora, Instagram, YouTube, and Reddit all have ads.

YouTube already has a program in place to share revenue with content creators/contributors.

On a new social media website/app, all ads displayed could start by advertising either advertising space on the site/app, or ads to sign up people for the service. Alternatively, users should be able to pay a small fee, and then not see ads. Eventually, there would be self service advertising on the site/app. An app like this should be able to function as replacements for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, and Quora.

A social media company like this should be setup as a benefit corporation. A benefit corporate structure is a blend of for profit and not for profit business models. Perhaps, eighty or ninety percent of net profits could be paid out as a dividend to content contributors.

All profitable social media sites should share revenue with content contributors/creators.

Revenue Sharing on Social Media Websites

Facebook and Twitter need to share revenue with content contributors.

YouTube already shares revenue with some content creators.

Reddit should share revenue with content contributors.

The future of social media will involve revenue sharing where profits exist.

All profitable social media websites should share revenue with content creators/contributors.

Electronic books are a form of social media in certain respects. It is relatively easy to publish a short electronic book or print on demand book these days using Kindle Direct Publishing and Createspace. Revenue sharing is built into multiple self publishing platforms.

Achieving Longevity Escape Velocity

We must eventually achieve longevity escape velocity! Longevity escape velocity is the point at which humanity is increasing the average human life span by one year, each year.

I continue to post links, articles, notes, and videos to Facebook, Reddit, YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr, Medium, and so forth.

Read the books Radical Life Extension or Extreme Longevity. They are available on Amazon. Radical Life Extension is also available on Audible. Read the book Ending Aging by Aubrey de Grey and Michael Rae.

I have started streaming to Periscope about longevity related topics.

I will keep providing updates here. I will keep spreading the worthwhile message that aging must be defeated. I hope that you choose to spread this message too. Aging kills about 100,000 people each day and about 36,000,000 people each year. Aging is the worst humanitarian crisis to ever exist. Only now can we potentially do something about it. With enough coordinated effort, we can defeat aging.

Support SENS research. Support SENS Research Foundation on Amazon Smile.

Tweet to, email, or call Senators, Representatives, and even the American President. Tell politicians that funding for radical life extension research should be increased, and that human aging should be classified as a potentially treatable disease.

Tell journalists that they should cover topics related to radical life extension.

Together, we can eventually achieve longevity escape velocity!

Authentic and Sustainable Peace

Authentic and sustainable peace is obviously more desirable than disingenuous, unsustainable or false peace. False peace, or inauthentic peace might sometimes look like peace. However, it is not sustainable or authentically real.

We should strive to create more authentic and sustainable peace. Sustainable peace is a sort of peace that is lasting and a type that can be maintained indefinitely as long as all parties desire for it to be maintained. Peace can be fragile.

I sometimes wonder if violence can ever help to achieve authentic peace. Self defense certainly seems like something that can help to promote authentic peace. Individuals who engage in criminal acts of violence have reasons for the violence that they engage in. Sometimes the reasons are stupid, selfish, fear based, petty and/or morally deficient. However, they have reasons nonetheless.

Exploring the reasons that individuals engage in criminal acts of immoral violence can potentially help to find ways to reduce and mitigate these reasons. Self defense is something that can help to create and maintain peace in the face of illegal and immoral violence. Hopefully Earth will be filled only with sustainable and authentic peace sooner rather than later. If this achieved, where there is authentic and sustainable peace all over Earth, then Earth will have truly become more Heaven-like.

Where there is authentic peace, there is no fear. There is no anger. There is no unpleasant uncertainty. There is no sadness. Authentic peace is an ideal to attempt to achieve. If using this definition here, some might claim that authentic peace is impossible to achieve. Anyone who might state that might not be thinking courageously and/or creatively enough.

For those who want to help create authentic and sustainable peace on Earth, creativity, patience, knowledge, courage, dedication and optimism may all be required. These things are not bad to utilize no matter what one’s goal is. However, the more ambitious the goal, the more these qualities may be required. It will be good once authentic and sustainable peace is all that exists all over Earth.
