Niklas Luhmann's Work Schedule, and Taking Breaks from Your Antinet

FROM:

Scott P. Scheper

Downtown San Diego, CA

TO:

You*

START:

Friday 5:55 pm

Dear Friend,

For what has felt like forever I have been operating in a way uncharacteristic of me.

You see, at the beginning of this year, up until——let's say a month ago——I operated my every day life in a very different way compared to how I have been operating my life today.

Characteristic of my life earlier this year entailed myself waking up in the afternoon. Let's call the afternoon something like 12:00 pm, or 1:00 pm, or 2:00 pm. Whatever.

I then proceeded to workout on a Pelaton bike like an absolute vaginal pussy. Literally. And, well, figuratively. Mostly figuratively.[1]

I'm not sure you're even following me right now, and quite frankly, I do not care. The reason is: what you're reading is my daily practice. It's my daily commitment. It's part of my agreement to the world to ship work that sucks absolute Bill Cosby cock. Meaning, my content is so bad sometimes that it literally requires one to be subjected to a date-rape drug in order to read it.

OK, anyway, wasn't planning on going there.

Here's what I'm getting at...

My life has changed considerably in the past month.

I've stepped outside of the office a bit more and have plugged into the chaotic flow of life. I've let go of trying to order the world's information and spending unhealthy amounts of time plugging away in my office alone, isolated, and disconnected from reality.

The pertinent thing of note is that Niklas Luhmann also stepped away from time-to-time. He took breaks from his from his antinet. He took breaks from his true field of study. He took breaks from his commitment to unleashing the most profound Theory of Society in academic history. All of this created by a single human being.

Most of the time Niklas Luhmann's life was pretty stable. He was pretty basic-b-word. He would get to the office around 8:00 am, read, take literature notes, file the notes by installing them into his antinet, and then... he would write until lunch. After this, he'd take a nap or take his dog out. Afterwards, Niklas Luhmann went back to work (reading, filing, and writing) until he fell asleep at 11:00 pm. Next day, same thing.

The details of Luhmann's schedule are roughly laid out here; however, they will be laid out in crystal clear detail in my book on the antinet.

I can't wait for you to read it, and... even more important... I can't wait for me to actually finish writing it!

Until then,

Please stick around here, and I'll serve up some nice little tidbits on how to get started in the meantime building your own antinet.

That's all for now.

Peace and love,

Your friend,

Scott P. Scheper

AKA, "The Man Who Will Release The Book on The Antinet When The World is Ready for It... And NOT ONE SECOND BEFORE!!!"

P.S.

If you didn't already know, in the future I'll be releasing a book on the true nature of Niklas Luhmann's zettelkasten. I refer to Luhmanesque zettelkastens as, antinets.

Because you're an early supporter of mine, I've decided to do something that will end up costing me a lot of money...

I've decided to give you a copy of my new book, signed by me, and I'll even pay for the cost of shipping it to you!

I'll restate that. I will send you a free, signed copy of the book I release on the antinet. This book will show you precisely how Luhmann created an analog thinking mind. It will show you step-by-step how to create the system responsible for producing 70 books, and 550 papers. The antinet zettelkasten will enable you to create the genius-level work you're capable of producing.

All I ask is that you do the following:

  1. Write to me, in handwritten format.
  2. On the piece of paper write something like:

"Hey Scott! I'd like for you to send me a copy of your book on antinet zettelkastens. Oh, and I'd love for you to sign it too. Also, thanks Scott for paying the shipping cost!"

  1. Mail the above-handwritten letter to me at:

Scott P. Scheper
600 W. Broadway, Suite 700
San Diego, CA 92101

Mail this to me in the next week. After that, I may be pulling this offer down. But it's good at least for a week.

If you're reading this now it means the offer is still valid! Follow the steps outlined above... like right now! I'm serious!

That's all I'm gonna say on that.

If it's not obvious how much of a no-brainer this offer is at this point, then... well to hell with it. And to hell with you!

Kidding!

(Actually, I'm not. If you don't want a free book signed by me, you eat crayons).

Oh, and why am I asking you to write me a hand-written letter?

Because I want you to stop being a lazy pussy. I want you to invest time in someone who wants to change your life.

I'm not someone who wants the lazy-ass email addresses of average Joe-blows.

I want to communicate with the best people, and I want to serve the very best people.

The people I serve are ones serious enough about their growth and craft that gasp... they'll actually take the time to mail in a simple letter requesting a free book on it!

Alright, enough of my preaching. Turn off the noise and distraction of your mind. Do as I say. Seriously. Do this now:

  1. Write to me, in handwritten format.
  2. On the piece of paper write something like:

"Hey Scott! I'd like for you to send me a copy of your book on antinet zettelkastens. Oh, and I'd love for you to sign it too. Also, thanks Scott for paying the shipping cost!"

  1. Mail the above-handwritten letter to me at:

Scott P. Scheper
600 W. Broadway, Suite 700
San Diego, CA 92101

Got it?

Good!

Look forward to hearing from you soon.



Footnotes:
  1. Now look, I am not asserting that working out like a literal pussy is a bad thing. By literal pussy, one could conclude I'm referring to either a female human, or a feline cat. Both of those species and entities of animal could most probably kick my ass in the fitness department. ↩︎
