I have a friend who is a doorman at a very, very exclusive club.
He’s worked there for a long time, more than a few years.
And he’s figured out a way to leverage his job for lots of sex.
But not from the girls waiting in line, hoping to get in.
Even though he tells me that at least half a dozen times on busy nights, young, attractive girls are always begging to let them give him blowjobs if he would let them in.
My friend recently got a promotion at this bank.
Before she was an assistant manager.
Now she’s a manager.
Part of her new responsibilities is having full access to the main vault.
Everybody at the bank needs access, so now they come to her.
She mostly worried about how she handles this new authority, for few obvious reasons.
I saw this economist and historian talking about his new book recently.
This book is all about social notes.
But not on social media, although social media influences are kind of a distorted version of this node theory.
The example he gave was of Henry Kissinger.
He never really had a lot of power himself, but he was always closely associated with those who had power.
All About Who You Know
His network has always been extensive.
His theory was that if you look back through history, you can much better understand it not by studying the leaders, but the behind the scenes guys who actually had the power.
The guys that had the most connections to other people, mostly whom were behind the scenes.
And he demonstrated that no matter how seemingly popular or powerful a leader was, unless he had access to a few of these power nodes, he would eventually fail.
A recent example was Jimmy Carter.
Even though his policies were very similar to other, very popular democrats, he didn’t have any access to those social power nodes.
FDR on the other hand, whose policies were essentially identical, was president for four terms.
The only difference was he had people on his staff who were very well connected.
Origins of Agriculture?
There was this ancient culture they’ve recently discovered, in Northern Europe.
They existed long before the Roman Empire.
They were one of the first agricultural communities in Europe.
There was this cave, that was made out of a very unique blend of minerals and crystals.
Secret Shimmering Pool
And in this cave was a very shallow pool.
The conditions were perfect, so the pool was always liquid.
Even in the deep of winter.
The pool had no source, and it had no outlet.
But if you were in next to the pool, at the right time of day, and you were quiet and still enough, the pool would be perfectly smooth.
Stillness of Intention
And if you held an intention strong enough, these reflections would tell you the future.
For a while, this power was abused, and it almost destroyed the young farming community.
But eventually they figured out a system.
So that one person would have access for one year.
And this person could only use their access to discern the perfect farming techniques.
Invention of Farming
Some believe this is the missing link between hunting and farming.
Which led to enormous advances in wealth and productivity.
They are still looking for this cave, but they haven’t found it yet.
He said that no matter how talented you are, no matter what business you are in, no matter how many good ideas you may have, you won’t get far unless you connect with one of these power nodes.
Power Nodes Important
Historically, these power nodes are very careful who they let in their network.
Because all it takes is one abuse of power, and the entire node will collapse.
He said this is why there are so many false ideas in society today.
Because social media influencers are essentially selling access.
Pay For Access
Which means that whoever wants to pay, can get whatever ideas into the general society they can.
Every time, going as far back as they can tell, a power node sold access rather than carefully cultivated access, the collapse of society wasn’t far behind.
It turns out the careful cultivation and maintenance of these power node based structures are one of the most important parts of a healthy society.
She says she’s not really worried, it’s just that it feels kind of weird for her friends to come up to her and ask for access.
She said it’s a good group of people, and they all have told her she deserves the promotion.
But she jokingly told me that if they ever get robbed, she’s going to be the one to let them into the vault.
He said at first it was really tempting.
Please Let Me Blow You
All those young cute girls begging to give him blowjobs in exchange for being let in.
But he said he gets a lot more action when he’s not working.
When he meets girls at parties, he’s managed to develop a communication system that subtly and subconsciously leverages his access.
To gain a lot of social proof and authority.
Long Game Always Better
And because he plays the long game, he is always getting laid.
At least a couple times a week.
He said that’s the best part about this.
That if you leverage this for a long term gains, like sex and secret access to private sex parties, this can be very valuable.
