I want to begin this series of articles with preliminaries (or foreplay I may say) about love. Love, such a big and small word! What follows comes from direct experience acquired along the years. […]
As a licensed explorer of life (certified by myself ), I could not not explore love. Love liberated from its imposed forms from the past that don’t work anymore. How can I love today? What can I invent? How can I reinvent myself in order to build harmonious, free, erotic and ecstatic relationships in the celebration of body, mind and spirit?
The title of this article suggests we should hate this guy. But you know what? I love him as one of these rare friends one has in a lifetime. And I do love that he brings chaos into our lives. Indeed, Bruno has become one to the greatest experts on this new science, the chaos theory, as we name it.
Time has come to share my dream about the next place to live. As you know my experiential life has lead me to live in the gift economy. I dream this site manifesting as a gift. Not to possess it but to live in it and honor it. A gift that will allow me to continue my journey, my research work, CIRI’s development, writing…
Physics and mysticism work like oil and vinegar, you have to shake them hard together to make a decent vinaigrette. Do we need vinaigrette to season our life? Does quantum physics explain consciousness?
We speak a lot about human evolution on the technical plane, shaped by a materialistic vision of reality. There comes one of the signatures of pyramidal collective intelligence in which we see and understand the world only through mental dualism. Social genetics has become one of my most important discoveries in collective intelligence.
Bitcoin? As someone working on the vision and technologies of the post-monetary society, people keep asking me what I think about Bitcoin. Well, you know what? Not much. Although Bitcoin […]
In my research on the gift economy, I insist on the fact that we need to find a new language to express wealth. You can read it in the […]
Here comes my list of desired riches, or more precisely desired material wealth. You will find the whole spectrum, from the most basic forms (food, shelter, healthcare) to those that […]
I have learned from experience that when a person moves into the gift economy, most people think this person should ask only for covering his/her basic survival needs. Anything above […]
Luc Schuiten, the cities of tomorrow We must not oppose the old dying system of pyramidal collective intelligence with the birthing one of holomidal collective intelligence. I hear all […]
Research in collective intelligence, as you know, connects to every aspect of social life. One of them I like very much: food. Indeed, what lands in our plate comes from […]
Collective intelligence, post-monetary society, gift economy, vow of wealth, food, love, sex, politics, martial arts, spiritual journey… many topics that attract lot’s of questions. Some come back often, so why […]
In my humanonaut journey, some of the places where I go may look quite odd for the eyes of the conventional world. Food, vow of wealth, gift […]
I live in the gift economy since September 2011. I decided to live this way in a world where we need to buy and sell everything, in a culture where the expression “to earn a living” doesn’t shock many people. I earned my life through my birth.
Here come two talks that I gave during Centifolia in 2011 and 2013. Both of them explain in detail the meaning and consequences of Beauty, Goodness, Truth, and integral wealth. […]
Centifolia 2013, “The Riches of a Product”, focuses on radical innovation. It feels quite normal that people from this sector ask questions sourced from their paradigm, and wait for responses […]

In the next 2 weeks of my stay at Auroville, I will facilitate a series of meetings for sharing and building some practical reflection about collective intelligence, wisdom and consciousness. […]
Here comes below a crucial text from Satprem that a friend of mine from Auroville (thanks Claude!) gave me while I spend a whole month there. I can’t resist to share this text in which I see so much force. It resonates with the words I share during my conferences on the evolution of our species. The difference? He wrote it in 1969.
I received an invitation to speak in front of 600 people who have decision making positions in their organizations. This event takes places in Toulouse, South of France, 4th of […]
Many people write me to ask what’s the current status of CIRI — the Collective Intelligence Research Institute — we created and announced 18 months ago. It is true that we haven’t […]

You can’t conquer happiness, but you can chose it. Claim joy within you, and thanks to you, the universe invents itself. The masterpiece of yourself nourishes its own purpose. Your temporal […]
Presidential elections: who will become the next captain of the Titanic? You got it: everything, almost, lies in the title. It seems that most people have a hard time making […]
The earliest preoccupation of man in his awakened thoughts and, as it seems, his inevitable and ultimate preoccupation,—for it survives the longest periods of scepticism and returns after every banishment,—is […]
Recently, after reading the post “Towards a life of charity“, a dear friend of mine wrote me: “Your steps towards a future submerged in a life of charity reflect your […]

This morning a person joined TheTransitioner online community and wrote in her profile that for her sharing was more important than exchanging. I couldn’t agree more with her. Sharing is […]

Speaking at TEDx Paris came as a new challenge for me. How could I share the post monetary society vision in 12 minutes? TED even asks for much more than saying it […]
Last September 2010 my dear friend and brother Eric Harris-Braun wrote a wonderful post on his blog called “A story about expressive capacity“, which I strongly recommend that anyone interested […]
