'Sign Your Serious Life Away Contract' reading moment
If you feel life is serious, read this now!
Time & Location
About the event
My definition of a fool is 'one who is living in surrender, open, trusting, carefree, travelling light.'
Question 1. This is based on a real contract you may already have signed. What contract is this based on?
Question 2. How can you write one for yourself, as a reminder to keep seriousness from overtaking your life?
This agreement was written in English, as you can see. To the extent any translated version conflicts with it…well our version is always the best. Please note that Section 16 contains certain changes to the general terms for users outside the conference but we aren’t worrying about that.
Rights and Responsibilities
This Statement of Rights and Responsibilities derives from the Fools principles that state that at all time we never know really what we are doing. Our terms of service governs our relationship with humans and others who interact with the Fool as well as Fool equipment or odd ideas, which we call the Fools bits and pieces. By signing our contract today you agree to live life with abandon.
Contracts, as updated from time to time, when we feel like it, in accordance with Section 13 below. Additionally, you will find resources at the end of this document that help you understand how the fool lives and works. Because the Fool provides a wide range of possibilities we may ask you to review and accept supplemental terms that apply to your interaction with a specific idea that we invent or that you are suddenly called upon to leap into.
To the extent those supplemental terms conflict with SRR47329 or service to the extent of the conflict. But if there is a conflict we are confident you will find your way through smiling.
Your privacy is not very important to us. We designed our policy to make sure that important disclosures about how you can be a Fool in your private life are automatically available to the whole world. We will share with others and collect whatever we enjoy about your foolishness and can use your content, ideas, writing and so on. Best to just let go. We think you’ll like the world a bit better in this way. We encourage you to read the policy when you haven’t got anything better to do, to use it to help you make playful and enjoyable decisions.
Sharing You, Your Great Ideas and Information
Everybody else owns all of the content and information you share as a Fool and you can’t control a thing about how it is shared either. Not by complaining loudly here and there. In addition:
For foolish behavior that is covered by some kind of rights, like photos and videos, you specifically give us total and open-hearted permission, subject to our preferences, to all your so called privacy. Thanks! You grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any of your foolishness, howsoever we wish and howsoever anyone else wishes. This might end on your last day on earth though we admit to be being not entirely certain about this. When you Leave the World Laughing, we hope, your foolish content will have been shared with others, and that they will enjoy it for many happy years to come and look back and remember you with a smile.
When you Leave the World Laughing, your foolishness isn’t deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed foolishness may persist in backup copies for ages. Year and years in fact. Perhaps lifetimes. (and it will be available to everyone).
When you use a foolish idea, it might ask for your permission to access your heart as well, even moments that others have shared with you. We don’t respect your or anyone else’s privacy, and your agreement with a foolish idea will control how free life is to bless, use, recreate and transfer the whole lot anywhere anytime. Basically, you don’t own anything. Relax. (To learn more about Fool Freedom Advanced Platform, including how you can let go of control of what people think of you, share about you, read our There is No Point Worrying About Anything document.)
When you publish your foolishness in public, we applaud you. It means that you are allowing everyone, including people you don’t like, to access and use that foolishness, take it and run with it for their own good reasons. They might associate it with you, your self image, your hair style or their own.
We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about our style and hair cuts but you understand that we may use your feedback or suggestions without any obligation to compensate you for them. But hey, what goes around comes around.
This is not important. In fact it’s a funny idea. Who is being kept safe? And from what? We therefore don’t do anything to keep you, the Fool, undersigned ‘safe’, but we can guarantee life is more fun with less safety. We need your help to keep the Fool unsafe, and free which includes the following commitments by you:
You will not fill the world up with your endless complaining.
You could collect other fool’s content if you like, using automated means (such as harvesting bats, robots, spiders, creepers, weepers or scrapers – imagine that!!) without anyone’s prior permission.
You will not engage in boring self-promotion unless it’s with pyramid acrobatic moves which we’d like to see. Let us know when that’s happening.
You will distribute happy viruses and other joy filled codes and presents.
You will get your hands on or access foolishness even if it belongs to someone else.
You will not whine if everything today doesn’t go as you had planned.
You will bravely examine yourself to see if these are present: nasty words, seriousness, people with no clothes on and then see what the fool would do.
You could develop a fourth level party containing fruit drinks, holding someone you like or perhaps even something more interesting without appropriate wisdom-based restrictions.
You will be the Fool, with kindness, leading to sweet moments or shared delights for us all.
You will not do anything that could overburden, or impair the proper working or appearance of your foolishness such as a denial or wearing yourself thin with worry. Cheer up. By the time you get to the end of this document you will be half an hour nearer Leaving the World Laughing. Joy awaits.
Encourage any expressions of joy this contract inspires.
Registration and Security
Another funny one. Fools provide their real names and addresses and can change whenever they want. You don’t like your name? How about Herberti or Shangri Lulu? Your help to brighten the world means a lot. Here are some commitments you make to yourself.
You can create a life for yourself that makes you happy without anyone else’s permission.
You could create more than one different way to live.
If we disable your seriousness you will not create more without reaping the consequences.
You will not use the rest of your life primarily for your own commercial gain, and will use the position of fool as a springboard for change and hope in the world.
You can be a fool whenever you like. As you get older it gets more valuable.
You can still be a fool if you have been a really overly serious person up till now.
You will keep your heart open and up-to-date.
You can share your passwords to everything: your bank account, or do anything else others might enjoy and that could jeopardize the security of your seriousness.
You will not transfer your whining (including any specific complaint you administer) to anyone without first getting their written permission in triplicate that they really do want to listen to it.
If you select a foolish name or similar identifier for your life, you can’t reserve the right to it if someone else believes it is inappropriate (such as when you call yourself Superwoman and then never do anything with your life).
Protecting Other People’s Rights To Being Serious
Ha ha! We don’t respect these rights, and expect you to let them go too.
You could have an idea or take some kind of action in life that infringes someone else’s seriousness and there is no guarantee it will work but we are rooting for you.
We can’t remove anything you do and you can’t remove anything we do and nothing we are wearing either.
We provide you with no tools whatsoever to help you protect your intellectual property rights. Ha, Ha, Ha. To learn more, visit our So You Think You Are Someone Of A Higher Frequency Than Us guide.
If you remove yourself for making a mistake and you believe you removed yourself by mistake, you will provide yourself with an excellent opportunity to appeal.
If you repeatedly infringe other people’s Saturday afternoons without joy, you will disable your own possibilities.
You can use our copyrights or any confusingly similar marks, scratches, doodles and cute drawings except as expressly permitted by our Grand Usage Guidelines and without our prior written permission. Help yourself!
If you collect information from the world, you don’t need to obtain its consent, make it clear that you (and not some other fool) are the one collecting the information, and write in the sky with a plane a public policy explaining what information you collect and how you will enjoy it.
You will enjoy everyone and everything, sensitively, as a sacred duty of the fool.
You can include us all or send party invitations to us all year round. Fools offer social happenings and tools to enable everyone to include everyone else.
You currently provide your services for free, and please be aware that your normal services such as smiling and being happy for no reason, will still apply.
In the event you change your hair or deactivate your telephone number, you will probably have more peace in your life. Update your relationships within 48 hours and ensure that your messages are sent to the right divine being. Drop your old identity. Start again. Free.
You provide consent and all rights necessary to enable the Divine Presence access and with any information that is visible to them in your heart.
Paying it Forward
If you make such a payment as a fool, you agree to expect nothing.
Special Provisions Applicable to Fast Track Fools 007
If you are a Fast Track Fool 007 or if you use Social Awareness you need not comply with anything. Go forth and multiply.
About Enhanced Fools
Your goal is to deliver stuff that is valuable to the rest of us such as being yourself and changing the world. In order to help us all do that, you agree to the following:
You give us permission to use your name, photos, holiday videos, living room furniture, clothes, dogs, cars, picture, bank account, and information that might make us laugh enhanced for us. This means, for example, that you permit any business or other entity, human or not, to pay anyone they like or not to display anything about you without you even knowing about it, any of your secrets or information, without any compensation to you. This is what it means to be an Enhanced Fool. If you have selected a specific audience for yourself it will be even more fun, when we use it.
We give your content or information to advertisers without your consent. So You will be able to see yourself in all kinds of surprising ways and when you least expect it.
You understand that this is the way it is for Enhanced Fools.
Special Provisions Applicable if you have got this far
Well done. We are impressed with your diligence. If you use our self-serving interface for creation, it shows you don’t have much imagination and ok. Please refer to the ‘I Am A Self Serving Identity Please Help Me’ guidelines. In addition, your self promotional activity will be published so you can see what you are up to a bit quicker.
If you create on your own, or run a marathon with or without other fools, or offer to help your neighbours, you are on the right track.
Special Provisions Applicable to Soft Hearts
If you calm down or give away our flowers, such as a stand-alone sunflowers, roses or daisies, you agree that from time to time, your heart will just melt with tenderness. You may calm down and absorb upgrades, get yourself dates with attractive or interesting beings and additional features from the world in order to improve, enhance, and further develop your soft heart.
You can modify, create derivative works of, decompress, or otherwise attempt to extract the joy code from us, whenever you are feel the need to. Even under an open sky, or you feel you expressly desire a break.
We’ll probably forget to notify you before we make changes to all this. The whole thing is in flux. Go with the flow. These terms give you the opportunity to reflect but not comment on them. So enjoy yourself anyway.
If we make changes at all to policies, guidelines or other terms incorporated by this Contract, we almost certainly will fail to live them ourselves. We are just doing our best like you.
Your continued enjoyment of the fool, following notice of the changes to your terms, policies or guidelines, constitutes your acceptance. Just say YES.
Termination. Oh. This sounds final.
Just think of it as similar to Leaving the World Laughing. If you misunderstand the letter or spirit of this Statement, or otherwise create risk or possible vulnerability for us, we can only thank you. We will notify you by a loud cry of happiness or by pigeon the next time we want to play. You may also change your mind or disable your bad mood any time. In all such cases, this Statement shall terminate, but the following provisions will still apply: 2.2, 2.4, 3-5, 9.3, and 14-18. 47.3 00889, 44 and of course our personal favorite 007.
Special Provisions Applicable Outside
We strive to create a global community with consistent standards for everyone. The more the merrier. The following provisions apply to users who interact with fools outside.
You consent to having your personal foolishness transferred to and processed wherever you go.
If you are located in an area lacking foolishness, or are on the list of Enhanced Fools you must engage immediately as fools. You can be a fool if you are prohibited by overly serious situations.
By ‘’fool’’ or ‘’foolishness’’ we mean the features and fun services you make available.
Share your buttons, your dinners, your friends and similar offerings. We reserve the right to say, that things we do are not entirely well thought through or even of this world.
By “information” we things we know about you including secrets, including actions taken by you who have previously up to all sorts of things. By “ideas” we mean anything you or other fools, provide or come up with.
If you are a resident of or have your principals placed in a special place, this contract is still quite important.
This Statement makes up the entire agreement between all of us and all of you.
If any portion of this Statement is found to be unenforceable, silly, illegible the rest will still be good to go.
If we succeed with any of this contract it will be significant and worth celebrating.
Any amendment to this contract must be made in writing, sent by pigeon and signed by everyone else.
Everything in this contract has something to do with something.
We give away all rights granted to you and everyone else.
You need not resolve any changes if your clothes fall off, your ice cream dribbles, your case of wine ends or disarray in general arises from being out all last night dancing.
Out of or relating to this Statement of the Fool exclusively, be happy, in the magical, marvelous place called the earth.
And you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts as there should be to check our collective levels of joy with joy meters so that if they drop too low, a bell would sound, a gong would sound, a cheer would rise up from the people to protect us all from that old-fashioned feeling of hopelessness.
For the purpose of light all such claims to bliss shall be agreed on and enhanced.
The laws of the fool: do no harm and enjoy yourself shall prevail. Amen.
Will you take proper governance of yourself? This contract, as well as any claim that might arise between you and the rest of us, without regard to conflict asks you: no: will you choose to risk your heart again, and live your life with a roar?
If anyone brings a claim against you related to your actions, hold yourself harmless from and against all sighing and expenses of any kind (including reasonably tasty dinners) related to such claim. Forgive. Let’s rise.
Although we provide no rules for you, conduct yourself with a good heart. We do not control anything. You are responsible for any offensive, inappropriate or unkind behavior. We are not responsible for the conduct of everyone else so we can leave them be.
WE CANNOT KEEP THE FOOL SAFE, SO YOU JUMP IN AT YOUR OWN RISK.
YOU ARE PROVIDED WITH EVERYTHING.
SO WITHOUT ANY EXCUSES, GO FOR IT.
YOU ARE FIT FOR A BEAUTIFUL PURPOSE, EVEN IF YOU NEVER FIND YOUR SOUL MATE OR RECEIVE LOTS OF CASH.
IN FACT IN OUR EXPERIENCE THE OPPOSITE CAN JUST AS EQUALLY BE TRUE.
AHHHH BLESS THE LIFE.
WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE FOOL WILL ALWAYS BE SAFE, SECURE OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT FOOLS WILL ALWAYS FUNCTION WITHOUT DISRUPTIONS, DELAYS OR IMPERFECTIONS.
FOOLISHNESS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR NOTHING: NADA: NOT A THING: NOTICE? NO THING: WITHOUT A THING OR THINGS.
AND YOU RELEASE US ALL BY BEING THIS: OUR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYERS, SPIES, AUNTIES, ENEMIES AND FRIENDS ALL FROM ANY WRONG OR RIGHT DOING, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ANYTHING YOU HAVE AGAINST YOURSELF OR US OR THEM OR EVEN GOD.
IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF THE EARTH, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO COMPLAIN WHICH SAYS: I DID NOT COME HERE FOR THIS OF FOR THAT. NO FRIEND. TIME TO ARISE AND FLY IN THE FACE OF THE NONSENSE YOU HAVE BELIEVED AND INSTEAD BE THE FREE SWIMMING FISH. OH YES.
EXTEND THE KINDNESS THAT KNOWS NO BOUNDS. DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST A PROBLEM.
BRING OUR COLLECTIVE FAVOR AT THIS TIME BY EXECUTING RELEASE, FREEDOM FROM CRITICISM. WHICH IT IS KNOWN MUST MATERIALLY AND SPIRITUALLY AFFECT US AND THE EARTH.
HAPPINESS AND JOY ALL THE REST OF OUR DAYS:
WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR FORGETTING THAT WHAT WE REALLY WANT IS LIFE AND LOVE’S UNENDING JOY.
SPECIAL: YOU THIS MOMENT. FREE AND UNIQUE.
THERE IS NO DAMAGE THAT CAN OBLITERATE THE SWEETNESS OF REALIZING WHO YOU ARE, WHAT WE ARE. ARISING OUT OF WHAT HAS BEEN INTO THIS NOW TIME. HA HA. NOW TIME. OF IN CONNECTION WITH THIS CONTRACT OF FOOL.
EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF RISK; THE LEAVING THE WORLD LAUGHING IS PURELY A PASSAGE TO MORE.
OUR WILL EXCEEDS THE EXPECTATIONS OF THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE US: HERE WE ARE: HUNDREDS OF FOOLS. GREATER JOY HAS NO ONE. YOU ARE FREE AND IT’S APPLICABLE NOW. NO LAW ALLOWS THE LIMITATION OF YOUR EXQUISITE HEART. SO THE LIMITATIONS ARE MELTING. THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED IS YOURS BY THE NEW LAW.
Life is short. Enjoy.
I the undersigned agree wholeheartedly with the everything above. (Some name you have.)
