The Capital of Meaning: Using News & Social Media to Monitor a Currency’s Effectiveness

An interesting realm to look into that can be used to determine the efficacy of a currency (and/or various forms of capital) is done by monitoring news media conversations.

In this work by Joe Brewer and team, they have accrued media outlet topics tweets and found huge disconnects around common themes. The resulting diagrams show digital clusters of self-truths that create walls between each other, undermining the potential for any deeper understanding emerge and meaning-making to arise. Meaning by the way, is humanity’s primary pathway to spirituality.

One of the primary valuations of the dollar (or any currency) appears in how we connect with each other. Under today’s currency, money creates inherent competition forcing isolation of truth into bubbles of self identification and increases the desire for self-centering power, that is then used to downplay and denigrate other’s truths in the name of their own.

Imagine instead, news outlets shifting from being informational channels, to becoming a common medium (media) for integrating (rather than isolating) shared knowledge. This would allow for measurable correlations between conversational depth, monetary exchange, and world wealth (used here in its broadest meaning) to help humanity monitor its own transformation of rising (or decaying) values, where that value can only be done through second degree assessment of conversational relationships.

This approach would turn organizational ‘valuations’ (which are presently determined almost completely by dollar potential only) inside-out. Allowing for currency to return to its original intent, which was to represent the meaning (rather ‘be’ the meaning) of how we determine value in one another.

Thus, the analysis of news through social media becomes a critical tool in creating capital as a dynamic (no longer static) meaningful world.

Our Responsibility To ‘AWE’

This short video gives me that spinal shiver we humans get when ‘awe’ is present. When’s the last time you’ve felt it? What moves you? What draws on your desire to be in life? Who are you not to stand up to what is your own momentum into amazing, incredible, awesome!

We have a ‘responsibility to AWE’.

 

Silence is a cancer that grows – from enslaved thinking.

No more silence.

Use your voices and speak up for what is right; for yourself, and for the people.

What do you have to say?!

Allow no logic, no mindfulness, no model, NO CHAINED THINKING …

Let nothing get in the way of speaking up now!

What do you know? What do you feel?

What is deep in you screaming to get out?

What do you have to say?!

There can be no deep impact, no change, without your voice.

Speak it now. Allow someone to hear you.

Speak it now!

Our Money Or Our Lives?

These talks (below) by Peter Joseph establish a baseline for understanding why sustainability can ‘not’ happen (listen up all you greenies!) under our existing monetary system.

Time to educate anew in order to clear ourselves of the old. Note this clearing will not from those ”with” but rather from those of us with”OUT”. What are you going to do TODAY to start taking action? Get RE-educated now, not tomorrow.

As with so many of us, I am quickly becoming a part of the wrong 50% who are in or on the edge of poverty in the U.S. I have a plan to eliminate my situation (and 1,000’s of others like me), which is pointed toward a horrific way of life living on the streets. If I can find a way to keep a roof over my boy’s head long enough to move my project forward, maybe it’s the ticket to making a difference. So, watch for my crowd funding proposal to eliminate homelessness.

Your money or your life:

  1. This youtube talk is one of the better I’ve heard on why homelessness is growing and ecological decay is increasing.
  2. I’m learning that money and way of life are actually two very very different things, which our society thinks is dependent upon each other.
  3. This article helps clarify how money and social classes work.
How about you? What are you going to do help the change happen? Start today, not tomorrow.

This 2 part talk is a must … Watch it all the way through.

Plutonium is Flowing into Our Oceans and Skies

FukuBeach

Dead sea creatures cover 98 percent of ocean floor off California coast as result of Fukushima nuclear fallout (click for article)

Do you know this?!

Do you know what plutonium is? Do you know that it’s leaking into the Pacific? Do you what this means? And here we are – watching CNN journalists argue about who’s got the bigger balls to be president, with barely a whimper about Fukushima. Too funny.

You’re right: It’s not funny. Because the game is over and nobody knows it. Everyone is still playing as if time had not run out. But it has. It reminds me of a truth the movie “The Matrix” revealed. Remember it? In that movie, our lives were (are?) apparently a great big lie; a dream that we don’t know we are dreaming. Time to wake up to the truth of what’s happening, don’t you think? Watch Nobel Prize winner Dr. Helen Caldicott’s video below called “What We Learned From Fukushima” in video below.

Don’t you get it?

The dark genie is now out of its bottle. The wild woo-ly beast – a creature from our worst nightmares, is free. The seers death card has been played. Plutonium has over a 26,000 year half life, and right now it’s particles are filling our skies, leaching our waters, and contaminating our soils, poisoning the entire food change of life. And do you realize that no one knows how to filter out all this radiation, let alone where to put it if they could? Meanwhile, this Pluto-creature is insatiably eating any living flesh it touches. It’s happening RIGHT NOW. Millions of us are being eaten alive in this moment, and we don’t even know it.

So much for innovation.

Want to be remembered for an innovation that saved humanity? Best get started. Forget that great new app or awesome widget that will make you a million dollars, because you life span has been so shortened at this point that you won’t be here to spend it. Instead show the world some real innovation by figuring out how to stop the madness and find a way to get the dark genie back into its bottle. Maybe the next great idea is not an app or  device but is instead a way to passify humanity’s devisive nature. The mothers of invention, named Problem and Crisis, have never screamed so loud for their new borns.

Sustainability? – What a joke.

Oh, and for this whole sustainability movement: Give me a break. How arrogant can we be, while pushing chairs around on the deck of the Titanic. What a joke the whole sustainability movement is. A complete failure. Worst part is, we actually had the know-how and technology to avoid this insane suicide. But now, the only green we can talk about for the rest of our very shortened life spans is the green that is coming from a very sustainable pile of glowing dead flesh, effectively lighting up the planet. Guess this is one thing we can brag about: In a sick sort of way, our energy and environmental problems have be solved!

Look – It’s too late.

Why bother at this point? Really. It is too late. Game over. End of story. Might as well go play with your children for the short time we have left. Watch them drink their last few glasses of radiation-enriched Kool-aid, knowing from here on that we will be watching our families die slow, horrific, painful deaths.

Without most of us even knowing that we’ve asked a question that has provided us an answer – a solution has appeared in an unexpected way. Done from inside our ridiculous problem-solving philosophy (which by the way ‘is’ the actual problem), one of humanity’s greatest problems is now declared solved. Guess we got what we asked for. Next question please?

Watch Nobel Prize winner Dr. Helen Caldicott:
What We Learned From Fukushima (April 2, 2012)


Few people know that the Pacific Northwest got whacked hard by fallout from the Fukushima disaster with radiation rates hundreds of thousands of times higher than normal background radiation.  The damage from this is not something that the corporate media or the government is talking about.  It mysteriously disappeared from the radar almost immediately.  Dr. Caldicott referred to this as a process of “cover-up and psychic numbing.”  Looks like it may be working.  The Nuclear Regulatory Commission just approved two new nuclear power plants this week (4/2/12) in South Carolina in addition to the two approved earlier this year in Georgia. Dr. Caldicott talks about the dangers and hidden costs of nuclear power then tells the awful truth in minute detail about the actual scale of the Fukushima disaster and compares it to the nuclear disasters of Chernobyl and Three Mile Island.  Recent studies estimated that a million people have died so far from Chernobyl. Dr. Helen Caldicott is a physician, Nobel Peace Prize winner, noted author, anti-nuclear power advocate and has founded numerous national and international groups which oppose nuclear power & weapons, including Physicians for Social Responsibility.

Sustainable Economics – We’re in Trouble

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, watch this moving picture video as it unveils the U.S. economic decline from the perspective of the unemployed. It doesn’t slow down a bit since 2007. What is this telling us? Who is responsible for this decline? How are you and I being held accountable for taking the necessary action to stop the bleeding? How can we learn as an evolved community, and begin to make choices that can sustain our well being for the long haul? And when will we get serious about the relationship between sustainability and economics? I say that sustainable innovation aligned with a triple bottom line economic system is the way into something new. How about you?

Declared ‘Critically In-Sane’

I’ve just been declared ‘critically in-sane’ by the authorities.

So you can disavow anything I say or do, as it is merely a fig-newton of my delirious irrational in-sanity-iation. You can visit me. I’ll be in padded cell # 13 talking through steel-secured cement walls to other cuckoo’s who got nested here before me. You know – the ones society locks up because they are nut cases, insane, crazy, out of touch with reality? Good thing too. This place helps to keep us nut jobs off the streets so that truly sane people can be in authority and do the great work they are doing, without a bunch of dimmed light bulbs like us getting in their way.

How hard it must be for our authorities to have cultural misfits like me hanging around them.

Well, the nice people here, the ones that wear those neat little white suits, have helped me to understand that my ’bouts of speaking truth is too painful to hear. It hurts them and I must stop. I’m really trying to stop. And my visions; seeing things and all – they are wrong, dangerous, and bad. My actions have been hurting all those good people who are running our society. I’m so sorry to have hindered their way. They are so smart and intelligent and compassionate and right. How could I have done what I did, and said what i said to them? I must be truly mad. It’s good that I’m put away now.

Funny how in-sane I’ve become over time.

I can see my craziness when I talk to my cuckoo friends in here, because they make more sense to me than the people outside. Can you imagine thinking this way? I know, probably not. That’s why I’ve been told I need a lot of help. I get scared when they tell me these things and I have to take more pills. Sure is a good thing for the medicine though. It keeps me calm and helps me to realize there is nothing I can do and that it’s alright. Everything is okay.

I see now that it’s a good thing they’ve locked us all up, cause who knows what we might have done with our feelings-of-grandeur! All those attempts to save the world, and my sick desire to change normalcy. Geeez. The world is just fine, so what was I thinking?! Can you imagine what might have happened if I were still on the streets?! OMG!

And there are so many more of me out there that will be in here soon.

I welcome your company. It’s okay. Let them bring you in to get better with me. I guess we will have to have a lot more of these places built because it seems to be like a virus or disease or something. More and more people are going crazy, just like me. I hope they find a cure for it soon.

Well, I’ve been cured and saved from my turmoil. I’m happy now.

Visiting hours end at 5pm sharp, so I can receive my pharma-cocktail, which I very much look forward to. Please don’t let them take that away. You can send me an email from my blog site here – at least until they take it down. Good thing too, because there is a lot of whacked out stuff I said on here. And the videos? – do NOT watch any of them. The things I was learning from them are very very bad.

Well, it’s cocktail time so I’m signing off now.

Sincerely from a critically in-sane person.

Vic D.

Mohandas Gandhi’s quote above is powerful, isn’t it?

Being the change requires that we embody change itself. To do this, each of us must surround ourselves with a community of others that can provide us with encouragement and supportive feedback.

Seven Steps To Becoming The Change:

  • Know WHY you want change and be able to articulate it.
  • Understand WHAT it means for that change to happen.
  • Time WHEN the change can best occur.
  • Find WHO you want to ally with.
  • Consider WHERE the change can best serve.
  • Practice HOW the change needs to emerge.
  • And always always always be aware of the influence of your change on others – Our greatest risk is that we become blinded by your own righteousness about our own need for change. This is why a community is necessary to keep each of us highly motivated and always in check.

911 Revisited: Insights That Reveal Our Limits For Discovery

I find it interesting how our desire for ‘discovery’ is fueled only to the point where our innate fears reside … and then dies. Watch this 9 part youtube video series and then ask yourself. Why do we still feel the truth has evaded us? How does this reveal weaknesses in our social, cultural, and individual character? And what can we learn from these character flaws that allow us to create a world that works better?

Vic’s Supplements Plan For Wellness … and Sustainability

Our wellness influences what we create as human beings and how it either supports or depletes the world’s complex ecology of life – a planetary well being, so to speak.

Our individuality is made up of a physical body, mind(fulness) and thoughts, emotions and attitude, and spiritual connection with something greater than us. The interactions between sustainability, leadership, collaboration, and innovation (my favorite subjects) start inside ourselves. That is, how we treat the inward effects the outward. Each then, are tightly connected to other bodies, thoughts, emotions, and spirits that make up a collective of creativity, and the outcomes of our innovation and creativity start with you and me feeling whole as individuals. Keeping our bodies attuned within a now toxic environment becomes very important. To be global change agents, we must recognize that all four areas of inner being affect the same four aspects of an outer being that is realized within our communities and the earth as a whole. This is why some people call the earth ‘Gaia’, because it better represents our planet as a living being made up of an intertwined ecology of living things. This way of thinking is in fact at the source of all human development within the context of understanding a deep ecology. Let us come to recognize that giving credence to our individual wellness directly influences the next generation of innovation, and will be the result of a more conscious, collaborative, global design process.

That said, the outline below suggest some ways to use supplements to keep our bodies well. Everything below comes from a body-wellness perspective and is based on three key points …

1-Clean the colon (the ‘inner’ toxic environment)

Plain and simple: 90% of all human disease starts in the colon, so a clean colon is will prevent most of the stuff that’s killing or making us sick.

2-Alkalize the body (an acid world is an angry world)

pH balance is the best indicator of human health. Our body organs regenerate and rejuvenate when alkaline and get sick when acid. For example, cancer can not live in an alkaline body but thrives in an acid one. Also, a balanced set of healthy bacteria help to keep bad micro-organisms from passing further into your body, including one that seems to be prevalent in today’s highly food processed world known as candida.

2-Assimilation of nutrients (know how to take in the good while shielding ourselves from the bad)

I have found that, just because you take supplements does not mean that your body is taking in the ingredients. The body’s ability to break down and utilize supplements is as important as the supplement ingredients themselves. Laboratory-made ingredients usually are far less capable of assimilating properly than supplements made from natural sources because their molecular structure is often too large to pass through cell membranes and often do not have the carriers that help with the exchange processes in the body. So be sure that you consider this as part of your supplements selection process.

.

My solution:

This is not, by any means, a perfect solution – there isn’t one. I’m posting this because I want to share what I know through my own studies, hoping that it will encourage more of you change agents to build your own wellness solution.

1-Alkalize the Body

(a) Alkalize the body with pH drops

Drink lots of water throughout the day with drops in it. Try Cell Power pH drops and/or try Phion pH drops.

(b) Drink raw lemon juice

Lemon juice with touch of B grade syrup as lemons are a great alkalizer to the body and makes my stomach feel good. It cuts my apetite so its easier to eat way less food during day, which is very important. This program is called the Master Cleanse which uses just lemon juice. I’ve gone 10 days with just this and no other food – It was great, but takes will power I don’t have right now.

2-Cleanse the Digestive System

Clean out the colon and keep it that way. I like using Dr. Schultz 5 or 30 day bowel detox system, or something similar. Listen to his lectures on how he describes the interaction between a healthy colon and overall wellness – his approach is wise and sound.

 

3-Add Highly Assimilable Nutrients

(a) Nutraceutical
s

Vitamins do not get into the body due to size of dissolved particles, and our diets (even if healthy) no longer have the nutrients they once did due to destroyed soils. New vitamin products are called ‘Nutricuticals’ help get those needed extras, especially ingredients that get lost during food processing, such as aminos, enzymes, healthy bacteria. These are the two I use: IntegraMax and sometimes Eniva Vibe. Try both and see which one works for you.

(b) Superfoods with Juicing

Make lots of juices with live fresh vegies and fruits and add super foods. Top superfoods are seaweed, raw honey, wheatgrass juice, and whole crushed flax seed. Add Dr. Shultz superfood to your juice. Also, go get 2 to 4 ounces of wheat grass juice from a local juice bar a couple times a week. It is one of the highest forms of nature-made nutrition on the planet. Also add seaweed to your diet as it contains the macro and micro minerals that our diet does not provide anymore. And when you can, use raw honey in green tea and or just by the spoonful. The tea is high in antioxidants and the honey is high in enzymes, which are normally heated out of most all of our foods but essential for nutrient breakdown and assimilation. I often add all or any of these into my juice concoction, plus dark greens, carrots, raspberries and blueberries. All are extra high antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Mix up a juice to satisfy your taste buds, but just get it into your body.

(c) Probiotics and Fish Oil

An unbalanced flora allows the bad bacteria to populate and they generate major acid. Plus omegas help to reestablish cell membranes thereby reducing irriation. Take Jaro probiotics or Blue Rock probiotics (mix of 4 to 7 billion healthy bacteria types), along with a balance of omegas that come from clean fish oil pills that have total of 1000mgs of dnl and hcl (see backs of bottles).

 

4-Exercise to burn off stress

My stress level has been chronically off the charts for too long and is main reason for my acid reflux and stomach problems. Exercise helps but I still don’t do this one enough, but am walking now very often. It helps a lot. Looking forward to things has also has helped to calm down my anxiety. (Special note: I have also recognized that taking too many supplements causes stomach problems – more is not better. Monitor the quantities that work for your body.)

 

5-The ‘Magic Nine’ Foods For Wellnes

I have added eight foods into my diet that combine high levels of the magic that the body needs to run well. Note these foods are either ‘raw’ or properly ‘processed’ to retain their magic. They are: Fish Oil (omegas) Seaweed (minerals), Raw Honey (enzymes), Wheatgrass Juice (vitamins/minerals), Whole Flax Seed (omegas/fiber) [ground at time of intake], Blueberries (vitamins/antioxidants), Green Tea (metabolism/antioxidants), Cayenne Pepper [metabolism and circulation], and a Superfood Blend (vitamins/minerals) [best ‘processed’ combo I’ve found is from Dr. Schultz.

.

Note: I’m a believer in the products I’ve listed here through my own research and experimenting. I suggest you try them, but by all means, find the ones that work for you! In principle, emphasize prevention or cure solutions, and the use of earth-grown substances instead of lab-based pharmaceuticals. And recognize that BOTH supplements and pharmaceuticals have their place in wellness and well being.

.

If you have any suggestions regarding this list, please email me and let me know.

Unbounded Particulates of Spirit

Unbounded (Particulates of) Spirit

work to be integrated

 

see the world differently

——————————————————————————————-

 

——————————————————–

Value Density (gravitational lensing):

All things manifest once a certain level of mass-density occurs; from galaxies, to planets, to organizations. This density can be realized physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually (we usually only consider ‘physical’ densities in our science). ‘Lensing’ then, is way to bring focus to something and is what makes it apparent (a parent). Awareness and attention (a tension) of it initiates gravity and allows its birth into the world. [For example, when a telescope sees a star, … {not complete}].  Values themselves are concepts (mental particles) that are like spinning star-dust. As these particles begin to cluster, they form into groupings (like planets, etc.) that take on identities of their own – separate from the individual particles that created them. This is ‘value-density’ and is identified by the organizing principals that initiated their gathering (relates to WILL-gravity). Initially, the gathering comes from a desire to connect or be with other (relates to INTENTION-grace). [The {3rd point? of this trinity} relates to gratitude, …{not complete}]. This trinity is otherwise known as one point in a higher trinity set, that is called ‘LOVE’ (the other 2 points in this set are Truth and Beauty). Love is a compassionate way of saying ‘value-density’. http://www.inknowvate.com/inknowvate/trinity_concepts.htm

What I am describing here can be one of the deeper levels of the organizational mapping system.

——————————————————–

I saw Peter Russell last night, and it trigger my connection with the Great Archives of Knowledge (or a psychotic state of Self-absorption (same thing)). As part of our watchfulness, it was interesting that the main theme that came up in his presentation for me was the idea of WATCHING. In my trinity model (structure, pattern, process), I believe that the “thought-geometry” we discussed is the ‘structural’ aspect for release (or escape), where the tetragramatron configuration associated with the Egyptian pyramids allows for focus and amplification of consciousness entering (becoming) Matter. The watching part is the action or ‘process’ necessary for the structure to become ‘bendable’ (like the spoon in Matrix (Ecology to Economy)), thereby allowing for the shaping of a portal from which we can move from the entramped feeling of being in a box we no longer want to be in, to the outside of the box – all, by the way, done through a change in perception. Seeing the ‘patterns’ that emerge then is the art of the Master shaping his/her World (Equity to Ecology). Once the cell wall of the intentional field is closed (or completed), thereby holding in the pattern (i.e. The mondala’s vessel for expression), then consciousness in’forms’ the mind through permeation (or vibration) of the cell wall, which is how our newly emerged pattern identity stays in relationship with all that is (i.e. no One is alone (Economy to Equity)). It is the birth of a new view of the Universe (the god Argo). Now our new cell’s identity can’t not be seen by others until a percentage of other cells (usually ones that are also in the flux of its own emergence- i.e. Cultural Creatives) also identify (or resonate) with the new cell’s view. [I believe that it’s not as much a percentage as much as it is a spiralic influence (or rate of spin of activity) that ultimately creates the whirling movement into a black hole; which is Matter becoming dense.] It’s interesting to note that there is a relationship between this concept and DEpression. As Spirit impresses Itself on the cell, the cell becomes EXpressive (anouncing to the World who he/she is), and through that expression Spirit gets COMpressed into Matter (another way of saying manifestation). Depression then, is the return cycle of release, where the Myth generated by the first downward incorporation of Spirit into Matter (Flow), now returns to its Source (Eb) to be remember with the Greater Whole (God). This Eb process begins with a DECOMpression point of awareness (consciousness) realizes that its own pattern identity is no longer in resonance with the outer cells vibration(s)(change). With ‘depression’ comes the inherent release of emotion (Spirit) from what has Mattered. During the Return, we pass again through the state of expression. But since there is hysteresis involved, it is MUCH more difficult to unleash Spirit from its previous Matter realization (hysteresis is Matter’s gate-keepers (the Lizards) holding onto what it knows. Love then is sensed during the downward entry of Spirit into Matter (a moving rush of joy- Birth), and Fear mostly comes during the return (release) of Spirit back into the Greater Beingness (motionless- Death). Since our work is emergent and not yet identifiable by enough other cells, the gravitation field is too small to be sensated by the human condition. Thus, it is important for us to converse, write, etc. about our new reality through a “watchful” subtle eye. It is that watchfulness that allows a higher amplitude of vibration to be expressed (i.e. Outword from our cell). As other’s begin to resonate with that vibration, the gravity of the subject becomes more and more objective – i.e. Manifestation from Spirit into Matter, whether that Matter is a mate or a career.

Sustainable Enterprise By Design:
 
Today’s emerging global market system requires companies to take a dramatically new view on how to develop their products, services, and clients. It requires businesses of all sizes to evolve their “organizational architecture” in order to compete. inKNOWvate proposes that an expanded economic model known as the ‘triple bottom line’ is a vehicle for enterprise change and success. inKNOWwate’s knowledge-base and provider-network is one of the highest in its field. Consider how Accenture may benefit from a relationship with us. I can be reached as per below.

——————————————————–

yes – here is the logic/flow/delusions/etc/etc…

Proficiency is another word for efficiency.

Efficiency in turn is tightly coupled/related to effectiveness.

And together, effectiveness and efficiency drive performance.

Performance is significant to creating maximum value.

Optimal value creation occurs when it is can be sustained for the long

haul.

Sustainable organizations create the greatest value, for the largest

number of stakeholders over the longest period of times.

So, the answer is yes because inKNOWvate is all about sustainable

enterprises….

‘Transmutation’ relates to the alchemical process of changing from one type of form into another. It is different than ‘transformation’ where this identifies form-change without atomic alteration (such as changing lead into gold, which is atomic alteration). Mythically, this relates to our cultural DNA altering its potential resulting in a new way of being. Myth underlyes the way we see the World and thereby how it forms itself. Myth is the story that, once unfolded, reveals the essence of -how- we are from -who- we think we are. Once realized and expressed, Myth can ‘morph’ (as in transmutation) into something that it was not previously. I see that our global (Gaia) system is undergoing a Mythical transmutation. As we become aware of the Myths from which we each independantly engage our World, we come to see that they are no longer working well. Thus, a new Myth will be created. Through an awakening process, this new Myth can emerge consciously (rather than the old myth, which is innately unconscious). Our separate national cultures will become understood within a global identity; a new more integrated Mythology for existance. Unlike the Phoenix which dies first and from its ashes comes renewal (transformation), the new ‘transmuted’ Myth will be more like the alchemical process of turning one metal into another.

… you are working on a VERY profound and important ideal that bridges the gap between Spirit (Godness), Consciousness (the Bridge), and Matter (physcial Universe). As I like to say: “It’s in the Spirit (father) of what Matters” (mother) which results in our Offspring (Child) {new World]. By identifying human patterns of communication – through our use of symbology – we can influence physical phenomena. In a word “Magic” … real Magic, not hocus pocus magic. This is the realm where the Dark and Light Powers of the Universe (the Gods) play ball. It is the place where All becomes manifest. The Taro, and all other forms of Mythic representation, are merely a result of man trying to express the Energetic focal points from which interference patterns are generated … thus Matter emerges. The interplay of the 10 points on the Kabalistic framework are merely reflected images of the Taro cards and are expressions of Consciousness realizing Itself. It is this critical stage when we Humans go from being conscious (magical experience) to Beings that are aware of Consciousness (Magic-makers), and thus defines the chasm before us. Will we fly or fall?

A couple thoughts regarding symbology itself:

1- Through personal review, I propose that the ‘dimensionality’ of our symbolism be considered. That is, not just the kinds of symbolisms that are used, but also the symbolism of symbolism (what I call the ‘squared principle’) be contemplated as well. It is this level of awareness that will be necessary to penetrate the veil of deception (neutral statement) that we are all under at this present time.

2- It will be necessary to use an additional language (i.e. symbolic set) in parallel with the English language (the pprimary communication tool of the global community). This is because the linear-ness of the English language inhibits us from sharing/expressing wholistic concepts.

3- The Mythology (neutral) from which we realize ourselves is collapsing. This time of chaos, which carries both danger and opportunity, is what the Consciousness edge IS.

4- As Joseph Campbell (my Myth-mentor) said: Heaven IS on Earth.

What an amazing time to Be alive.

What are your underlying concerns about religion? My question relates to the following: The way we humans organize is deeply linked to our underlying values, of which are often connected to our religious belief systems. Religion is the primary framework that we use (often unconsciously) to see our World. Thus, in order to be agents of change (assuming change is needed), I propose that ‘change agents’ need to consider what holds our exisiting orders of organization in place. I have found that the deeper I journey into the ways we humans organize (at any type or level of culture), the closer I find the need to review religious belief systems.

the triple bottom line (and its overall 5-point architecture) as a framework for managing community values and assets.

organizing hierachy:

community mythology

regional commerce

enterprise architecture

organizational development

business methodology

company practices

– we offer unique value as a company by integrating facilation (fluid, patterning, enabling, learning) with training (structured, directed, teaching) … i.e. ‘whole-system’ by definition

– link ‘learning collaboratories’ process with follow-up ‘needs assessment’ recommendations, drew sherlocks the symptoms while vic leads the facilitation

– write an article on the relationship between the science of company DNA and the ??? (not myth) of an organization

– myth defines the whole-system interdependency of art and science expressed/interplaying within a culture

4/8 As I mentioned, here’s what Monica and I have used for resolving and building our relationship: <http://www.imagorelationships.org/workshops>. We’ve learned so much about ourselves and about relationship. Together we are becoming mirrors of each other’s realities. I am finding that the deeper I look and see Monica, the more I end up seeing myself (Alice’s reflection in the mirror). My goal is to reach a level of compassion for both Monica and myself that I can step into the looking glass. The other thing we learned, is that the more we exposed our issues to friends, the more we learned that they too have been going through things. As a result, the support we have received has been incredible, and is what I believe to be what a whole community is really about.

 

4/5 innovation shows -up almost exclusively- through “story telling”

 

3/31 a ‘society-wide reorientation’ is necessary. Until this happens, putting ANYONE into political leadership positions (conscious or not) will be mostly futile. The reorientation he speaks of can happen if/when a few gather to review the mythology from which our cultural mythologies emerge. Only then can we change our world view and thereby our methods of manifestation (the magic of moving Spirit into Matter).

 

 

Vic Conceptual Book Notes (Misc)

– k(no)w is the source, that’s why saying ‘non’violence gives violence power

– ink Values Mapping: Value occurs when 2 or more things intcercept each other. Money exchange works when value is determined. (real or false value)

– blessing means ‘wound’

– braking molecular bonds are like breaking a curse

– religion is a bonding which relates to geometric shapes (st pat proc) and relates to bonding … sacred architecture (truth is about moving toward healing)

– negative ‘principle’ ?

– principle-making principles:

– any principles made must be created together (across aligned nodes) with awareness of 2 levels above itself

– idenity (loss/gain) paradox principle: our self identities are enhanced and more clearly defined when in collaboration with others

– alignment means enhancing identity by integrating into a whole

– cosmic is shaped like an egg: elongated and narrow at top and compressed and wide at bottom (i.e. electromagnetic field is not identitical across horizon equator but is across slice-cut of egg

Ideally “Media” becomes the conversational thread that binds the community domains together. It IS the managing system that allows communication to occur between the domains, thus helping a community to realize itself as an interdependent whole-system. Recognize however, that today media is merely a reporting vehicle of separate incidents that are disconnected from the over arching purpose of communty. Thus what is generates is a presentation to the community that distorts and disables its own innovation (i.e. innovation can only occur when the system being interpreted is viewed from a level (or two?) beyond itself. That’s what a ‘vision’ and a ‘mission’ are all about. This said then, media returns to being a carrier of the message rather than media itself being the message.

i want to thank you again for an interesting and engaging meeting – the best part for me being the networking and getting to know more folks…

also, i was thinking about the question you posed (last night) regarding the issue of what the future meeting “themes” could be.

well, attached is something that our friend vic put together as a “wholistic” framework for integrating the essential dimensions of sustainability called the The 15 (+1) Domains of Community Development”

perhaps you may find this useful for planning future meetings.

what may need to be added, is the aspect of a “twist”.

for example, last night’s meeting centered on the organic food component of the Food Domain.

the coming meeting in june will focus on the media; TV, print, etc.

ok, i suppose that media could be a blend of the following domains: Commerse, Learning, and Art.

you get the idea.

the benefit of applying such a framework, is that we can comprehensively “cover all of the bases”.

yeh, it will take a while (16 x 2 months = 32 months = uh, over 2 yrs…).

but, we will have seen quite a complete picture of what it takes to make sustainability happen…

anyway, just thought i would float the idea past you…

Convergence and balance of what I call the ‘triple bottom line’ (Economy-system management, Ecology-system interdependencies, Equity-system relationships)

Equitability: The development of a learning community of professionals committed to global transmutation – where development of a diverse set of choices (which inherently generate interest-based responsibilities) is seen as an essential ingredient for the larger system’s survival and vitality (i.e. chaordic innovation).

Economically: Development of a micro-system of participants choosing to manage themselves and their organization with a broader comprehension of its participation within a larger organism – planetary, cosmical.

Ecologically: Design processes that flow with Nature’s (universal) emergent tendancies; where cyclic feed-forward and feed-back looping occurs in ways that create integration and inter-reliance on every other sub-system within a greater whole.

——————————————————–

change-learning facilitator = a person who creates a

learning environment where a group can creatively explore and discover new

ideas, thinking, etc. The primary focus of the facilitator is to ask

questions that focus the group’s attention on re-framing their outlook as

much as possible – in other words – to “change” their outlook on whatever

the issues they have choosen to meet about. “Change-learning” then, is an

approach to learning that focuses on exploring how much individuals and

groups can change the entire framework of their understanding for a

particular issue, problem, etc.

>From a Systems Theory POV, change-learning refers to the process of

understanding the issues, problems, designs, etc at hand as parts of a

system . This system, in turn, is part of a series of larger systems that

expand in ever-inclusive rings of concentric circles. Ultimately, the final

system of analysis is Universe. At the core, change-learning is the process

of understanding how the sub-system fits into Universe. To accomplish this,

would most defintiely require constant change of not only the understanding

but also, of how one actually learns….

The benefits of change-learning stem from the new and innovative solutions

that it fosters. These benefits arise out of fundmental changes to the ways

people understand the issues they are meeting about. This approach not only

provides more effecitve and efficient use of people’s meeting time, but also

provides long term benefits as well. Once an issue is undstood at a deeper,

more comprehensive level, the systems that comprise the context of the

issues can be better managed, predicted and communicated.

As with most technology proposal requests, this one mentions nothing about the need for a “learning environment” from which innovations can emerge more readily. In most cases, a technology is only as good as the garden in which it grows. “Design Squared” suggests a framework for preparing that garden: www.inknowvate.com/design2

I feel that the emerging global economy will be based on a model of how Nature’s economy works which is nonlinear, cyclic, interdependent, etc. (Note that Nature is not conservative, but rather only creates HIGHLY consumable products – i.e. all waste is food for other systems). The new economy will be based on a model where macro systems are bounded by the activities of micro systems (rather than the present other way around). Additionally, it will operate with multiple localized currencies intertwined with a single global currency. … etc.

——————————————————–

(www.inKNOWvate.com). It relates to what I call “Organizational Architecture”, which I believe is an emerging field. (Note the word ‘field’ for me is a verb, not a noun, that correlates with pattern recognition, which relates to mandalas, which relates to sustainability, mythology, technology, and Nature … more on that later).

I’ve come to the conclusion that this ‘sustainability’ stuff is no longer just a good thing to do. Rather, it has become a founding principle for which we define and shape our businesses, cities, and nations. … big stuff.

We see that your company is also working toward a ‘triple bottom line’ business model. Terra Nova seeks to work with other companies like yours that know committing to a higher level of strategic planning and market determination will reap them rewards. For example, we believe that the investment your company chooses to make by allowing “x” will return itself 10-fold. How? By aligning our organizations, we will be participating in an already existing market-share that awaits our presence. Otherwise known as the ‘Cultural Creatives’ marketplace, these customers are interested in buying from companies that offer more than a good product, and they’ll pay more for it. They are buying from those companies who have defined a set of principles and have made commitments that directly influence the social, environmental, and economic conditions of our children’s future. This is the reason for our present difficult economic times: i.e. its not being appropriately addressed.I propose that, by looking at our bid from a single ‘bottom line’ point of view and determining we “cost too much” compared to your other bidders is like telling a caterpillar that its taking too long to become a butterfly. Our present comparative approach does not work any more. Instead, I suggest that together we consider how our costs reflect the development of a sustainable landscape and how it can indirectly improve (not deplete) your financial concerns.

We would like to create a long-term relationship with you and your land. We will work with you over a period of time to implement your landscape and install elements that match your budget. This way, you can begin to demonstrate your commitment to a triple bottom line (sustainable) management program. Your INVESTMENT will (1) result in a better “x” that has less or zero impact on the environment, (2) incorporate social learning spaces that help to build community knowledge capital (which of course will be sponsored by your company),  and (3) allow our companies to develop a ‘Cultural Creatives’ market strategy that addresses a 21st century client-marketplace which chooses to invest sustainable businesses for their own future.

the importance of DIRECT experience

…. awesome
 
True experience has recently become a primary theme in my life. I mean to DEEPLY saturate myself in what Life has to offer. I don’t always seem to enjoy it, however it seems to be taking me on a journey of ‘over’standing what I once stood under.

 

Henry David Thoreau

                              Walden 1854

       

        “The student who secures his coveted leisure and retirement by

systematically shirking any labor necessary to man obtains but an ignoble and unprofitable leisure, defrauding himself of the experience which alone can make leisure fruitful.  ‘But’, says one, ‘you don’t mean that students should go to work with their hands instead of their heads?’  I don’t mean that exactly, but I mean something which he might think a good deal like that: I mean that they should not play life, or study it merely, while the community supports them at this expensive game, but earnestly live it from beginning to end.  How could youths better learn to live than by at once trying the experiment of living?  Methinks this would exercise their minds as much as mathematics.  If I wished a boy to know something about the arts and sciences, for instance, I would not pursue the common course, which is merely to send him into the neighborhood of some professor, where anything is professed and practiced but the art of life; to survey the world through a telescope or a microscope, and never with the natural eye; to study chemistry, and not to learn how ones bread is made, or mechanics, and not learn how it is earned; to discover new satellites to Neptune, and not detect the motes in his eyes, or to what vagabond he is a satellite himself; or to be devoured by the monsters that swarm all around him, while contemplating the monsters in a drop of vinegar.  Which would have advanced the most at the end of the month,- the boy who had made his own jackknife from the ore which he dug and smelted, reading as much as would be necessary for this- or the boy who had attended the lectures on metallurgy at the institute in the meanwhile, and had received a Rogers penknife from his father?  Which would be most likely to cut his fingers

11/12 Remember that what we are establishing in this business plan is that ‘economics’ does not directly have anything to do with money. It is not in and of itself useful (I believe) in a triple bottom line model to identify the economic sphere as ‘financial’. Instead, ‘economic viability’ means ‘how well are we managing our system’?  Healthy economics within a company means that the system has a management framework that generates organizational stability, including the management of its product/service development processes and also its cash flows [the river]. A company’s resulting representation of financial effectiveness (i.e. how much money it makes or looses [the lake]) is a reflection of the organization’s management plan, which is inherently dependant upon the other two spheres as well.

Something struck me a few years ago regarding construction and development. It occurred to me that the underlying mythology for how we build our cities is visibly evident, revealed within a primary archetypal pattern: the square. From rural farms to urban neighborhoods, our primary organizing pattern for building is done via a matrix of crossing grid-lines bounded by a square.
 
It bothered me for some time until I worked with a Sacred Architect friend of mine. Then, my concern changed into questions: What if that revealing square pattern was different? How might a different kind of pattern reflect a vitality that is missing within our societies and ecosystems? These questions helped me to discover that, our human technical society builds itself primarily based on squared straight lines set at 90 degree angles whenever possible.
 
Then, further insight came to me during a recent study with the …………. institute. Nature does not grow herself along straight lines and squared angles. Rather, she emerges along non-uniform squiggles (rivers) bounded by irregular circles (watersheds).
 
I began to imagine what we could create as a human(e) society if we shifted our underlying design principles (realized in the metaphor of the square) FROM [building isolated houses along a connecting grid of roads contained within squares] TO (growing interdependent habitats connected by squiggly rivers bounded by encircled watersheds)?
 
My belief is that, if the construction industry can create questions within this realm, within ten years we would see our communities transform from dying fractured-parts into enlivened fractal-wholes.
 
Food for thought.

11/5/2003

Theme:   Commission-based programs can not work in a true triple bottom line organization
I’ve been struggling with the old commission-based sales model for a company. Although I believe it works well for a traditional single bottom line (1BL) company, I do not believe a commission program can work for a triple bottom line (3BL) organization.
 
Reasons are as follows (partial thoughts at this point):
 
– In a 1BL model (which itself is misinterpreted), the driving force is financial profit margins. That is, how much a business can make ($) relative to how much it takes ($) to create and sell a client a widget. The money gets measured in isolation without regard to (or linking it to) the company’s product and services value propositions. From a 3BL perspective, although we are supposedly in a TQM-oriented business environment, financial quantity (low end economics-structures) over-ride product quality (ecological design-processes) and consumer satisfaction (social equity-behavior patterns).
 
– Commission-based sales programs are counter intuitive to creating relational-based client management programs. Putting them together by commissioning a sales person to build relationships only generates employee resentment and client dissent, and a sales person’s inability to continue to build client relationship through and beyond the LIFE SPAN of the product or service being offered. Ironically, it has been determined that the greatest expenses in a business is building clientele, and yet there are no insentives to build long term relationships with them, since there are no money incentives (i.e. value proposition points) that are prolonged after a sales is made.
 
– In a 1BL model, consumerism is the driving force behind business development lead by sales and marketing (with design engineering and innovation lagging). In the new 3BL, conservationism is in relationship with consumerism (note consumerism doesn’t go away … i.e. Nature is a MAJOR consumer), and is lead by ‘whole-system’ design integration (business and/or R&D will either lead or lag based on company emergence (CAS) and an eb&flow dynamic).

———————————————————

 

 
Being involved with this kind of Work, i.e. creating vibrational sacred centers, aligns with my highest objectives and purpose. I have offerings, perspectives, and relationships that can be helpful for creating these temples. However, my view may or may not be in sync with what you are considering, so we need to talk further.
 
For example: The deeper meaning of ‘sacred architecture’ (for me) goes beyond the structural design of buildings and landscapes. It also deals with the way Life organizes Itself via the Consciousness Flame; otherwise known as the Bridge between Spirit and Matter. Applying organizing frameworks that allow our human cultures to learn and evolve upon themselves is key to successfully manifesting ‘purpose’ within the structures and environments that you mention. Incorporating ‘Organizational Architecture’ can help your temple projects to shift cultural behavior patterns that allow for the realization of a more sustainable, sacred, global culture. This is the process of integrating the World’s presently independent village-oriented Myths (myths are transparent cultural belief systems) to bring forth a new interdependent Global Mythology … thus the concept of ‘sacred architecture’ has deep meaning for me.

 

 

Sustainability as a concept can be defined as a "set of principles" that

preempts a “way of practice”. That is, SUSTAINABILITY (a set of principles)

carry the seeds for determining what INNOVATION (a way of practice) will

look like in this 21st-century. Or, to put it in other words: To actually

become sustainable, we cannot focus on sustainability as actions (or ways of

practice) but instead see sustainability as guidelines (or a set of

principles) for creating and innovating. Seeing sustainability as guiding

principles rather than direct actions can help us to differentiate what we

define, what we do, and what is the result where becoming sustainable is a

result of seeing our world differently (principle) and then acting based on

that new view (practice). In this way, we can create a human(e) World in

symbios with our Earth as a whole … a whole of which we are intimately

apart, not upon. Differentiating ‘sustainable principles’ from ‘innovative

practices’ can help us to re-build our communities so that they (we) are

aware of ourselves as part of a more conscious, peaceful, creative, global

culture.

Similar to sustainability, peace is not an action in and of itself, but is

instead a -result- of practices based on a set of principles that exemplify

peace. If we want peace, let us not spend our energy protesting war because

it gives focus to an old, no longer useful mythology for creating our World;

one which sees ourselves as groupings of empires and kingdoms. In that myth,

the idea of war carries power. Let us instead become part of a culturally

creative movement that can shape a new myth for how we see ourselves. To do

this, we must first come to know what peace is and what peace would feel

like inside ourselves and within our communities. Then, together we can

create a set of guiding principles, followed by enacted practices that can

move us toward a way of life where sustainability and peace are inherent in

who we have become.

Whole-systems modeling

PRACTICAL

See www.inKNOWvate.com  under ‘triple bottom line map‘ for a useable business systems model.

I can explain how I am using this with a couple small businesses I am consulting.

 

PHILOSOPHICAL

generating           receiving                resulting

archetype            anomaly                 condition

 

(imply)                 (apply)                      (exply)

 

pattern –>           inspiration –>         principle          [spiritual – energy]

process –>         innovation –>         practice            [mental – conscious bridge]

structure –>       invention –>           policy               [material – form]

I often describe ‘systems’ perspectives to technology-oriented companies by describing the difference between INNOVATION and INVENTION. From a systems perspective are always looking at the emphasis and interdependencies between structures (inventions), processes (innovations), and patterns (inspirations). This concept is a whole book, but I will work with you on creating a conversation piece that works for your group.

An an example, in the space industry, an example of -invention- is the rocket-ship; a structure that took us to the moon. The -innovation- was the -inspiration- that catalyzed an ecosystem of people, organizations, concepts, and principles (most important), which in turn enabled an -invention- like a rocket-ship to come into existence.

To create innovation, the mind must co-relate ideas in ways never before conceived. It is the result of -inspired- aha’s that show up in dreams, walks in the forest, and through conscious questioning of our state of being. There is very little innovation in our society today. The reason (I believe) is because of the intense focus on invention in relationship to our present economic system, where making a dollar relies on one being able to sell something. In this state, inventiveness carries more weight than innovativeness. This is not a bad thing but rather out of balance in a time where innovation (not invention) is necessary to move us into the next stage of human(e) consciousness. Note that the idea of -inspiration- is critical here (a premonition of innovation) but I will leave this for another time.

That’s innovation. To create invention, the mind simply improves or tunes existing mental patterns and processes (a result of the original innovation) that make an idea better and better, such as the rocket-ship that is now known as a ‘space shuttle’. The original innovative -principles- along with improved -processes- resulted in dynamically more effective -structures- … that’s invention.

———————————————————————————————————-

Any Whole-System – of which the Trinity expresses its interdependent experiences necessary for wholeness – is ascribed with the Fourth aspect. Thus, the number 4 realizes its deeper meaning and purpose … completeness, which becomes known (consciousness) through the characteristics that emerge from the relationships between the 3 trinity aspects. The result of their relationships, generates an inner fullness (value/overstanding) and an outer emptiness (learning/understanding), which -in their comparative differences- Spirit is ‘allowed’ to move into Matter (or into ‘what matters’).

MORE WHOLE-SYSTEMS MODELING

Your workshop exercise is the *quantifiable* (strategy) piece. Below is the *qualifiable* (values) piece. Together they create the potential for “whole-system” transformation via a new way of making DECISIONS. Energetically the energy of each of 3 aspects [authority, power, and responsibility] reverses its direction in the transition from old to new myth.
 
Static time (mechanistic) reveals a snap-shot of a spinning top making times of transition difficult since there is a resistance to the inevitable nonlinear change that is now recognized (i.e. it passes knee of curve). Dynamic time (metabolic) reveals an ebb & flow of these 3 aspects spinning/spiraling, with one leading and another lagging, and so on. An organization can awaken to the greater system of which they are a part by playing with #dynamic-states# (the union of movement and stillness) … thus a ‘whole-system’ emerges.

I became an ‘authority’ in my dream last night (I was driving a police car). I know that receiving this gift comes with a new level of ‘responsibility’ along with a ‘power’ that must be kept sacred. This may be the dream I’ve been waiting for. It *empowers* me to be *responsible* for my own and others well-being, which is my quest at this time in my Life. If the dream is what I sense, I can now become one of the *authors* in the creation of a new Myth; one for my-Self as well as the Planet. This feeds me and may help to fill my emptiness with ^Spirit^ rather than ^spirits^. With your permission, I will stay in contact with you (and a couple other key people in my life) to help me <mentor>, <manage>, and <monitor> my transformation.

What is Organizational Architecture?

It’s relationship to Creativity:   Creativity is more related to ‘pattern’ than to ‘process’ but includes all three structure/pattern/process interacting together. Creativity is also connected to ‘organization’, especially where organs/organisms/organizations are identified by their patterns of behavior based on procedural activities and structural configurations.

Community Development

Over the next year, we will focus on three key areas of community development:
 
First:      What it means to be a community and how the underlying principles and
              mythology of who we think we are as a community may be changing.
 
Second:  How we can evolve the practices within our community 
               by defining ourselves as a ‘learning culture’.
 
Third:      Suggest the kinds of policies that can monitor the
              efficiencies and efficacies of our evolution.

Together -along WITH our differences- we could make a project like this happen. One that can ‘sustain’ itself beyond mind and matter. It would be a real collaboration. One that is (of course) with more that just you or me, but where many would be included for their passions and expertise. A true dance of Spirit.

(ps) something you’d understand completely, I’ll bet. The honeybee population has been dying, can’t fight off mites and other diseases. A man got the notion to build a hive as nature has designed rather than the filing cabinet shape that humans have been using in the last hundred or so years. He built a hive with the same geometry as natural order would have the bees build, and his bees are now thriving!

Regarding the bees:  I believe that Energy is SPIRit which thrives by moving in SPIRals … It dies when it encounters ANGles (ANGels), which is what happened to the bees. Since the human bee-box ‘architecture’ was not inclusive of energetic principles, the bees essence (or energy) became weaker and weaker. As Energy enters the corners of the box, energy-losses may be due to its transition into other dimensions and/or its attempting to become crystallized Matter . Living systems know how to balance the dance between spirited-matter and angular-energy (integrated dual opposites), which manifest as bodily-vessels that are the expressions of Aliveness. The bee-hive is a whole-system that is the result of this dance.

———————————

I am presently working with groups looking to create change within their organizations, and I do believe they can affect change by initiating a -request- for change. This is done by building an internal group of individuals that are of the same weave of cloth and building a position for their request to be considered. However, this is only a request for change. The company (I believe) can not actually create -sustainable- change without going to its core to determine and transform its organizing mythology (organizational architecture). This process is initiated with “values-based” conversations, evolves into changing the *principles* on which the company was founded, which is then linked to new *practices* based on those principles, and finally development of company *policies* that can monitor its new practices relative to the espoused principles.

8 gate process

I’ve applied your list to my framework to see where the strengths and weaknesses are for providing a whole-system solution. This will help me in our design conversations. Below is an organizing arrangement that can be used as a vehicle evolving a company’s processes.

 

o- MYTHOLOGY realization that underlies our views and actions {PRINCIPLES emerge, 1st cycle}

[how do we see the world?, what is our filter/lens? how do we want to see the world?]

 

i- AWARENESS of the present

[why are we here?, what has inspired us to move?]

 

 

ii- ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of the past

[who have we become?, what is our core myth?]

6) identify underlying values of the group

 

 

iii- VISION of the future

[what can we be, what do we intend?]

 

iv- MISSION to realize our place in that future

[what is our role/purpose in that future?]

1) develop a road map for Terra Nova aligned with Triple Bottom Line

economics (which will take the form of a business plan)

 

v- OBJECTIVES to get us there  {PRACTICES emerge, 2nd cycle}

[what do we want to do?, how does it help us/them?]

7) identify a ‘learning path’ for individuals and possibly for the group

2) identify goals (profit goals, other goals?).

3) discuss and become aware of the profit sharing options

5) brainstorm on operating effectiveness/efficiencies that improve

customer satisfaction and profitability

 

vi- STRATEGY to make it happen

[how do we go about doing it?, what relationships will enable those activities?]

4) become familiar with the financials of the business

—————————————————————-

I support your comments. Some of the sustainable modeling that I’ve been working on is based on the ‘triple-bottom-line’ concept which seems to be catching hold internationally. However, I am defining and using the term differently than how I am seeing it used at present.

The emergence of sustainability (for me) means that first there is a growing gut-feeling of something not working right. That ‘something’ has triggered the sustainability movement and suggests that we are beginning to recognize a accelerated break-down of existing cultural norms and community structures; not just at local isoloated levels but at a global inteconnected level. This, I believe is validated by the common threads of conversation occuring online relating to sustainability from all forms of communities on all continents. Thus, sustainability seems to be a request coming from an emerging collective consciousness desiring change out of a necessity to sustain our well-being. This is not just a systemic change, which to me means we would be using the same view or framework for seeing and changing our World, but instead is a quantum-system change which means that we have stepped out of our exising framework or mythology of who we think we are and how we make choices. Ultimately, it means the redesign of our human identity.

Now, this identity change directly relates to the design and innovation conversations that O2 members subscribe to. It is this deeper conversation that I believe will help us as designers to develop, and also receive acceptance for, new forms of products and offerings that are more appropriate for a conscious global culture. They will be the result of a new framework for organizing ourselves and our activities and relates to what I like to call a ‘regenerative commerce system’; one that provides Ecological, Economical, and Equitable products and services to our global communities. This is the triple bottom line, also known as the 3E’s.

Just as sustainability is defined in many different ways, these three E’s are also used in many different ways. ‘Ecology’ for example, is often used as another word for ‘environment’ when actually the word means interdependency of systems. It’s really an activity; a verb or adjective and not a noun. Even the related word ‘environment’ is seen as a thing separate from the human condition rather than intimately apart of who we are. Its definition actually means: The complex of social and cultural conditions affecting the ‘nature’ of individuals and their communities, both human and non-human.

Similarily, the understanding of what Equity means. Equity is often categorized with the idea of justice and human rights. This may be true, but when the word is studied a bit further, it actually relates to our notion of ‘choices’. For me, the word equity means the ability for a community to offer diverse choices to its stakeholders and community members and depends on those members having the know-how and ability to accept the responsibility of making healthier choices from a broader framework of understanding and questioning. Choices that can sustain not only the individuals doing the choosing but also enhance the well-being of the greater community.

The third ‘E’ is Economy which is also often used as a same-as replacement for the word money. However, it actually has nothing to do with money directly. The dictionary’s definition says it means ‘management of home or place’, where that place can be an ant colony, a forest, a company, a city, a nation, a planet, etc.

Finally, the inter-relationship between these 3E’s is what makes up a measureable system for exchanging money. Money is merely the symbol for the actions of exchange that occur between people as a result of seeing the whole system’s inter-dependencies (ecology), system relationships (equity), and system management (economy). I like to use a dollar sign with three lines rather than one or two lines running through the S to help identify the difference between single and triple bottom line.

This ‘sustainability’ topic actually triggers a larger conversation about ‘innovations’ and how it is different than ‘inventions’. I would like to share my thoughts on this with you but will leave it for another time.

‘learning community’ by design

How do you avoid the ‘old’ principles, and help them grow into principles that are really new?  

‘avoiding’ old principles is .. ‘un-avoidable’
growing new ones is also unavoidable if the garden is well prepared

How does your ‘learning environment’ work so this facilitation/growth can happen?   

zero-zero: … (premonition) activitity is based on the assumption there is a need for conscious change (rather than derived change), [more feeling than thought]
 
zero: the ecosystem (community) is watched to learn its Nature and a geometry (DNA) is proposed that does not de-stroy an old way, or de-fine a new way ,,,, but merely allows for the re-alization of itself and give it the ability to re-fine, re-new, [more thought than feeling] …. (there is energetic geometry at work here)
 
first: a peptide bee flies into the garden seeking a desirable colored flower (leadership)… more important than what it takes from the garden (pollen) is what it provides the garden: the ability for it to talk with other flowers (re-production) (communication) 
 
second: permission comes from the top gardener to ‘create’, but he/she/they themselves are not the changers, only the catalyst to what’s to come
 
third: a core group is developed based on conversations about integrity and principle (conversation cafes used) …. new PRINCIPLES are emerging
 
fourth: a network of creative people is formed and aligned based on passions for ascribed activities (learning exchange markets used) …. new PRACTICES are being formed
 
fifth: a practicing community is now vibrating, vibrant, alive …. (Collaboratories are used to build strategies and plans) …  government now gets its new rightful place managing the relationship between originally committed PRINCIPLES and actual PRACTICES …. this is POLICY which is a way to -monitor- (or re-gulate) ourselves, not rule ourselves

What is a Sustainable Learning Community?

 

Sustainable:

Taking care of today’s needs while regenerating the means and opportunities for future generations to meet tomorrow’s needs.

Learning:

The ability to continually acquire, disseminate, and utilize knowledge that allows innovation to emerge, especially during times when change becomes an urgent requirement.

Community:

People aligned under common global values, energized by a rich diversity of choices in work, play, and service within their local sense of place. Together they envision and nurture a healthy, whole environment * for the well being of all living there.

“How do you model relationships between technological design, organizational learning, and cultural development?”

This is looking at 3 things:

        – technological design [structure]

        (that which we create and how we create it)

        – organizational learning [process]

        (how we learn to learn rather than what think we need to learn in order to adapt to required change

        – cultural development [pattern]

        (how the intent of technology impacts global culture(s), i.e. the interplay of unity and diversity also important here so   that mono-techno-societies are not estabished

arrogance (opposite of confidence) is the first step in imagery (identity) of one self relative to the whole [the diversity/unity relationship of divinity], see dictionary for definition of Narcissism, Narcissus, and Echo

– my view on technology council re-presents the revelation in the myth, i.e. offering the gift of the past into the present (gift) … narcissus arrogance is the first cycle (stage) of seeing himself as the carrier of godliness, second level arrogance, one sees himself (the reflective mirror) for who he is in relation to other (echo was a woman he loved who became a mere echo)… going from her separateness into being a reflection of narcissus being, i.e. one with him … i.e. in love with himself … at the second level of arrogance this becomes clarity, narcissism is a misunderstood because it is seen as a crystalline form rather than also seeing it as a fluid morphic process…. a transformation …. how the tech council forms itself it directly related to this light container reflection so that those of it and the technology itself can not only be seen, but through that seeing also see itself ….. i.e. consciousness

– to source knowledge beyond mind, one must learn to be in the now (tole) … today’s point in evolution is to go beyond mind (the beast that controls society) to a higher frequency of consciousness … result will be a pulsation between thought (moving toward form matter) and & no-mindness (movement toward spirit energy) … it is in this dynamic gap that creation emerges (vic) … the mind merely gives form to the creative (no-mind) essence …. wow <—> now ….

 

– Decarte: “I think therefore I am” was the beginning of the separation between God and Man. (it is a flawed philosophy)  It stopped us at the point of mind rather than knowing mind is merely a bridge connecting spirit to form.

 

– “Budda” means ‘awakened state’ (more quantum wave based).. it is a verb and is NOT the noun meaning this guy named ‘budda’ as it is normally taken to be  …. ‘Christ’ is the same issue … it is a verb meaning awakened (more quantum particle based … geometric ‘chryst’al form emphasis)… it is not synonomous with ‘Jesus’ for he accessed his Christo .. we all have that potential …

 

– three key shapes that relate to the trinity:  is the sphere (spirit here, femine, nonlinear, STRUCTURE crossover?), vector (directional, masculine, linear, PROCESS crossover?), spiral (also spirit all, movement, consciousness, the interdependence of sphere and vector, PATTERN crossover?) [note that ‘wave’ is actually a 2-dimensional image of the real 3D spiraling action]

 

– three (trinity) levels of evolution of all expression/comprehension … (for example, understanding the term arrogance … 1-being its existing surfacy comprehension—structure, 2-proceeding into its deeper purpose through use, 3-seeing a deeper level of meaning) ….. the movement of expanding and contracting consciousness reaching its own boundary (1, journey out), being of that boundedness (2, the return), seeing that of which one is bound (3, awakening) ….. placing no judgment on boundedness since it is the grail (womb) for which the essence (spirit of child creation) can be held …

 

– god knows of Itself through the relationship between father spirit energy and mother matter form … a deeper knowing of GOD is that It is the interplay .. the dance … between spirit and matter … not just spirit which also points to mans separation from god through a half understood whole. God is not above form, It IS form as much as It is spirit. … concepts like these are critical to the creation of sacred technologies (i.e. that which we create being conscious of its true essence)

concepts, and principles for the Technology Center at Fort Ord in Monterey.

We will be discussing:

1- … Ideas relating to ‘Building Sustainable Learning Communities’ using your concept of creating a ‘Sustained Technology Renaissance’ for the 21st century.

2- … The knowledge domains of inKNOWvate which are Awareness, Transition, and Implementation, as a suggested framework for realizing innovative forms of global community.

3- … How TECHNOLOGY can become a primary vehicle for realizing and expressing emerging global-culture value systems, knowing that integrating such principles into organizations (including the perpectives of Ecological Stewardship, Social Equitability, and Economic Viability) will be key to business success in the new millennium. 

4- … How to offer a reachable languaging system that allows these concepts to become understandable, acceptable, and applicable for those less experienced in defining the dynamics of an interconnected global society.  This will include discussion around the value of incorporating dynamic group-learning processes and environments as part of a knowledge-based technology business center.

Creating Resilient Communities

inKNOWvate focuses on ‘Regenerative Commerce’, a system based on a broader understanding of the term ‘technology’. Housed in the future ‘inKNOWvation’ center, we will be considering how advancements in: energy generation, home building, food growing, clothing manufacturing, complementary medicine, transportation, and other industries can be leveraged to create a unique identity for the greater Santa Cruz/Monterey Region; one that is interdependent rather that codependent on Silicon Valley.  The center will offer tools including decision-making frameworks such as the 3BL matrix to help create balanced organizations and communities.

3BL corporate value frames

Chaordic principles are important to my consulting work, which focuses on ‘sustainable enterprise development’. This involves helping companies and cities define themselves using a triple bottom line framework. It includes values and organizational learning as central themes for allowing companies to realize sustainable change. Transitioning companies from a single to triple bottom line architecture guarantees chaos, and I seek to offer clarity and safety as they move toward there new state of operation – one that balances the ecological, economic, and equitable aspects of the triple bottom line.

Notes from a conversation between Vic & MTW
– The key to building a company is through stories
The essencial question of story (essence) is : How do we reveal ourselves?
       (image representation: this line floats across a web page)
– Stories are a past/pathway/portal into a company’s soul
– We reveal soul through the telling of our stories
(revelation/insight/aha comes through the experience of story-telling)
– … and through it, we create new myth:
A blending of emerging archetypes that hold/express the way in which we create ourselves.
– Dialogue: it’s about trust … Done through conversations that do not have a fixed PRE-agenda
How do we give permission, to US as a company, to have ongoing conversations that allow
emergence (not knowing the outcome) and see them as crucial to our success and our own sustainability.
– The responsible ‘voice’ of the company
– We are coming to represent the new myth. Yet, we exist in between the old myth and the new (i.e. living on the bridge)
and must live in that place of creative tension.
– We are becoming an intentional community.
– People dont read websites, they read what interests them. Our web site will not be a static medium.
It’s intent is not to as much to present and promote RTC as much as it is to mirror and reflect the evolution of our organization.
It’s to TELL rather than SELL.

– Dialogue: it’s about trust … Done through conversations that do not have a fixed PRE-agenda
How do we give permission, to US as a company, to have ongoing conversations that allow
emergence (not knowing the outcome) and see them as crucial to our success and our own sustainability.
– The responsible ‘voice’ of the company
– We are coming to represent the new myth. Yet, we exist in between the old myth and the new (i.e. living on the bridge)
and must live in that place of creative tension.
– We are becoming an intentional community.
– People dont read websites, they read what interests them. Our web site will not be a static medium.
It’s intent is not to as much to present and promote RTC as much as it is to mirror and reflect the evolution of our organization.
It’s to TELL rather than SELL.

1-  Use a model to frame discussions.  For example:

 

The EME(cubed) Question Model: 

 

   ·What MAP will we use to guide us?                ·Is it ESTHETIC?                ·Is it EQUITABLE?

(Clarify Shared Intentions, Purpose, Direction)

     Consensusrequired

 

   ·What MEASURES will we use to direct us? ·Is it EFFICIENT?               ·Is it ECONOMICAL?

(Define Goals and Strategies for Success)

Compromise required

 

   ·How will we MONITOR our journey?                        ·Is it EFFECTIVE?              ·Is it ECOLOGICAL?

(Align the Measures with the Map)

Consistancy required

 

 

 

– WHAT we think creates our world.      HOW we think transforms it.

 

– I have touched the core of the myth. We must see it in order to transform it. When the Anunakee genetically linked their male sperm with an Earth mother’s egg, it was their intention to create a slave being that ‘seeded’ our culture’s servant-based revolutions which has been the basis for ourselves and our Earth’s destruction. Revitalization begins by seeing the truth behind the myth and then begin to build a conscious world’s new myth .. the story of our time, not the time of the past.

– It’s in the communion of coming together as a global planet that we come to know of each other’s needs and through this greater conversation, compassion becomes the basis for manifestation and collective knowledge. Corporations must identify themselves with this message and recognize their responsibility to empowering communities to their own learning so that they can build their own cultures and they too must know their responsibility to know of all other cultures including ours.

– in order to transform myth we must also comprehend a different dimension of time. Therefore, the inKNOWvation center will be run under a 13 moon calendar so that we can begin to see the world differently, be in it differently, and create in it differently.

 

– manifesting the new myth

– the optimal S-curve is the human spine

con–fusion:
The word ‘confusion’ does not mean chaos, but instead is a state where there is a lack of clarity. This state is most prominant when the –part-iculates that ‘matter’ move toward a new center of identity. The state that results just after a state of confusion is a new thing, form, or organization.
con & fusion combined original meanings:
‘con’ = to bring together, and ‘fusion’ = the merging of different elements into a union, or coming together. Therefore confusion can be described as: coming together-together (a squared principle) (or … in other words: seeing one’s self or organization converge (i.e. a higher state of consciousness))
At present, there is a sense of confusion that’s contained within our company’s -part-icipants. This is exactly where we want to be as long as we are conscious of its presence (pre–sense). This moves us into Gate 2 of the 8-gate alignment process where the parts (part-icipants) are acknowledged for their place within the whole.

Ideas relating to ‘Building Sustainable Learning Communities’ using concept of creating a ‘Sustained Technology Renaissance’ for the 21st century.

 

How TECHNOLOGY can become a primary vehicle for realizing and expressing emerging global-culture value systems, knowing that integrating such principles into organizations (including the perpectives of Ecological Stewardship, Social Equitability, and Economic Viability) will be key to business success in the new millennium. 

 

How to offer a reachable languaging system that allows these concepts to become understandable, acceptable, and applicable for those less experienced in defining the dynamics of an interconnected global society.  This will include discussion around the value of incorporating dynamic group-learning processes and environments as part of a knowledge-based technology business center.

 

My desire for a MUCH greater collaborative process between people and companies, unfortunately, breaks traditional proprietary, secrecy, and trust barriers that can burn bridges. … more lessons learned

From my view, the new myth can be initiated through conversational experiences, which is the purpose of 1/2 my work including www.portalcafes.com (presently a dormant, undone site), also see ‘community mapping’ on my webpage. The other half focuses on reinstilling creativity (i.e. global techno-cultural design) that is in collaboration and symbiotic with the Universal community.

The despair can get overwhelming. I have been spending much time in business attempting to awaken ‘business’ to the greater system for which it serves. … not too many awake … frustrating.  Yet I’m seeing glimpses of hope which I feel we must leverage. We’ve got to offer enough inspiration to the children of the next generation that they can go from their present state of anger and move into a place of action. My mission is to create an environment for which the ‘new myth’ can emerge. The myth itself will be created by them. I’d like to encourage us to keep in touch to build on the glimpses of inspiration that are out there and to help us buffer our own despair.

transformation, translation, transmutation, … etc

 a few missing pieces make your  long term success questionable.  Respectfully, I offer you the following for consideration:
1- As I see it, cultural transformation is what you and JV are doing. I believe you personally have 50% of the big picture; a level that not too many have.  However, for JV to be an influence long term, I believe that a deeper understanding of what sustainability is and how it relates to innovation will be necessary.
2- You personally have great potential to be a leader of the culture change. However, (and I say this with tremendous respect for your abilities) I see you as stuck running JV using an older form of control-based managementLeadership,  on the other hand, is what’s needed which is about enabling others both outside JV (which you do so well) as well as within JV.  JV’s present state is critically unstable because, if you’re not there, the organization can not ‘sustain’ its momentum.  Therefore, I encourage you to bring others into the organization so that it is not all up to you whether JV’s mission lives or dies.  From the perspective of my 8-gate alignment model, an organization (whether it a company, city, region, nation, etc) goes through 3 stages of evolution that relate to empowered leadership and transformed community development: 1-group intention, 2-value network, 3-community of practice.  The group intention stage is where JV needs to be strengthened since I do not see your intention being a group effort within JV itself.
3- JV’s indicators are quite evolved, and again I commend you for being able to get results by delegating others. I recommend in addition that you consider expanding the indicator generation process by basing results on a closed loop set of determinants that includes both early stakeholder value sets and envisioning descriptions along with your existing data so that the resulting indicators express both input and output information. The difference between output and input responses is where we humans do most of our learning and can therefore evolve our direction and decisions based on dynamic feedback rather than fixed information (Note another term for dynamic feedback is called ‘communication’.)
4- As I mentioned in meeting, my 14 domain model matches closely with JV’s 2010 goals. Here again though, I will encourage you to expand the goals to include a few key culture-change issues. First and foremost: energy.  When we change the way we see and use energy, we inherently change the way we create our communities.
4- Finally, you mentioned that I need to make my views clear and I fully agree. What I know inside is dramatically different that what I have been able to describe, although I am getting much better.  Additionally, I’ll add that real innovation is necessary at this time, not rehashed invention. True innovation can rarely be understood in the first description for it is not based on what the receiver already knows.  It must be taken in over time and experienced for themselves.  The key to ownership of innovation is done through the generation of powerful questions … innovation’s catalyst.
1- As I see it, cultural transformation is what you and JV are doing. I believe you personally are connected with a large part of the big picture at level that most doing this work have yet to experience.  Howvever, based on your responses, I believe that JV will need to evolve its understanding of what sustainability is and how it relates to innovation.
 
2- You personally have the potential to be a great leader. However, (and I say this with tremendous respect for your abilities) I see you as stuck running JV using an older form of control-based managementLeadership,  on the other hand, is what is needed to empower others both outside JV (which you do so well) and inside JV.  JV’s present state is critically unstable because, if you’re not there, the organization does not have a distributed knowledge based to ‘sustain’ its own momentum. Therefore, I encourage you to bring others into the organization that have the leadership skills to share your knowledge and responsibilities. It is not healthy for you or for JV to have it be all up to you whether JV’s mission lives or dies. 
 
3- JV’s indicators are quite evolved, and again I commend you for being able to get results by delegating others. I recommend in addition that you consider expanding the indicator development process by basing results on a closed loop set of determinants. This would include both early stakeholder values and their envisioning descriptions along with your existing data so that the resulting indicators express both input and output information. Then, direction and decisions will be based on dynamic feedback rather than fixed information.  By comparing inputs to outputs rather than just reviewing outputs, we accelerate our learning.
 
4- As I mentioned in meeting, my 14-Domain Community Development model matches closely with JV’s 2010 goals. Here again though, I will encourage you to expand JV’s goals to include additional culture-change issues; first and foremost: energy.  When we change the way we see and use energy, we inherently change the way we create our communities.
 
5- Finally, I’ll add that I believe one of JV’s highest principles needs to be about quantum innovation, not rehashed invention. True innovation can rarely be understood by another while hearing a single description, including yourself. Innovation is created by generating out-on-the-limb questions while giving it a safe space to grow and evolve. You mentioned society doesn’t pay for innovation and yet, I sense that deep with in yourself you know it is essential that we begin valuing it. And you have the authority make innovation happen.

After reviewing my notes from our talk today,
I’d like to learn a bit more about your 2 categories for business:
1st: Manage
        Relative Advantage (over existing practices)Compatibility (with local belief and cultural systems)

Complexity (More complex is less adoptable than more complex)

Trialability (can it be tried out in a small way before major implementation)

Observability (can others see the results of the change)

2nd: Principles for company resilience (sustainability)  …
            + limit liability
            + reduce cost
            + innovate new products
            + manage competition

Chief-chief … hmmmm … that’s the squared principle at play. In the new ‘quantum physics’ era, we are all centers of our own universe … in a multi-universe-universe. Chief-chief is the basis for the ‘concentrix management’ model. It is closer to the way things actually organize and allows for each of our egos to represent themselves fully without depletion of another. Imagine a world where we are all Chiefs and Indians at the same time.

 

————-

Finally, consider over the longer term showing the interdependancies between Orbus purpose and [the tools and contractors you offer] … kind of a systems map. Your ‘services/guide’ page would be a good in-roads to this if the challenge and/or problem was explained a bit more. Although your work is about ‘solutions’, the door into companies is throgh ‘problems’, since that is the (unfortunate) way we have been taught to ‘do business and science’ … solve problems, not create solutions. These so-called problems could be described to them via a set of questions .. maybe via a needs survey which then links them into solution. Otherwise I’ll leave your site thinking its cool but for somebody else who has extra money to spend rather than seeing it as crucial to doing business in the 21st century.

The next generation of technology will emerge through a collective compassionate creative process and will quickly build a new world where terror by your neighbor is but a memory. Below must be in place before we consider building anything new. ….

Today the human soul asks the question: What can I do to preserve the

beauty and the wonder of our world and to eliminate the anger and

hatred-and the disparity that inevitably causes it – in that part of

the world which I touch?

Please seek to answer that question today, with all the magnificence

that is You.

What can you do TODAY…this very moment?

A central teaching in most spiritual traditions is: What you wish to

experience, provide for another.

Look to see, now, what it is you wish to experience-in your own life,

and in the world. Then see if there is another for whom you may be

the source of that.

If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another.

If you wish to know that you are safe, cause another to know that

they are safe.

If you wish to better understand seemingly incomprehensible things,

help another to better understand.

If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the

sadness or anger of another.

Networking is a requirement for Business and Individual alike.

The ONLY security these days is how wide your network is and how shrewdly you market yourself.

Tough times …. I guess to REALLY understand sustainability, one has to know his own.

——-

figure out what mind set and language we will need to use to explain sustainability and make it appealing to the folks you work with and the customers you serve.  Think of it as an anthropological field study.  What are the rituals, beliefs, practices, etc. that punctuate their lives.  What common links can you find with the people you rub elbows with every day?

Here is a framework for working with the kids that can
define, clarify, and ‘sustain’ a long term successful learning program:
            Ecology:     What {are/will-be} the interdependencies of their needs? 
            Economy:   How {will/can} they best be managed?
            Equity:       {What/how} can relationships best be generated and maintained?
Together, these 3 concepts can be used as the foundation for the learning exchange markets you are considering.————————-
As i mentioned, i think that ‘culture’ is the whole thing (see http://www.inknowvate.com/inknowvate/14Domains.htm). However, in our ‘culture’, the word ‘culture’ is used as a subset of that whole … namely ART (and education) which is(are) usually discarded during times of financial difficulty. Note that mythologically, art is the source from which innovation comes via the channel of ‘inspiration’.  It grounds itself in this world and eventually becomes ‘invention’.  HP is about invention for example. Invention is the result of innovation and is crystalized in the form of physical ‘laws’ via science that allows innovative, artistic inspiration to materialize.
Anyway, as a best-fit for in3, I’d use ‘culture and the arts’ as a category 
… people can connect with this.

Eintstein Quotes

A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.

A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.

Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.

Do not worry about your problems with mathematics, I assure you mine are far greater.

Do you believe in immortality? No, and one life is enough for me

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler

Example isn’t another way to teach, it is the only way to teach.

Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.

Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrity’s. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence

He who finds though that lets us penetrate even a little deeper into the eternal mystery of nature has been granted great grace. He who, in addition, experiences the recognition, sympathy, and help of the best minds of his times, had been given almost more happiness than one man can bear.

He who joyfully marches in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would suffice.

How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn;for what purpose we know not, though sometimes sense it. But we know from daily life that we exist for other people first of all for whose smiles and well-being ou own happiness depends.

Human beings, vegetables, or comic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible player

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious.

I believe in standardizing automobiles, not human beings

I do not believe that the Good Lord plays dice

I don’t believe in mathematics.

I hate crowds and making speeches. I hate facing cameras and having to answer to a crossfire of questions. Why popular fancy should seize upon me, a scientist, dealing in abstract things and happy if left alone, is a manifestation of mass psychology that is beyond me.

I have deep faith that the principle of the universe will be beautiful and simple.

I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

I love to travel, But hate to arrive

I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.

I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right.

I want to know God’s thoughts…the rest are details.

If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it ?

If you are out to describe the truth, leave elegance to the tailor.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Intellectuals solve problems; geniuses prevent them.

Isn’t it strange that I who have written only unpopular books should be such a popular fellow?

It gives me great pleasure indeed to see the stubbornness of an incorrigible nonconformist warmly acclaimed.

It is high time that the ideal of success should be replaced by the ideal of service.

Joy in looking and comprehending is nature’s most beautiful gift.

Lasting harmony with a woman (was) an undertaking in which I twice failed rather disgracefully.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former

Perfection of means and confusion of ends seem to characterize our age.

Politics is more difficult than physics

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT’S relativity.

Quantum mechanics is very impressive. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory yields a lot, but it hardly brings us any closer to the secret of the Old One. In any case I am convinced that He doesn’t play dice.

MacMillan has this particular quote simply as “God doesn’t play dice.” and notes that it is often quoted as doesn’t play dice with the universe”

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who read too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one’s living at it.

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.

Scientists were rated as great heretics by the church, but they were truly religious men because of their faith in the orderliness of the universe.

Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others; it is the only means.

So long as there are men there will be wars

Subtle is the Lord, but malicious He is not.

The hardest thing in the world to understand is income tax.

The ideals that have lighted my way and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty and Truth.

The important thing is not to stop questioning

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

The most aggravating thing about the younger generation is that I no longer belong to it.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible.

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.

The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them.

The search for truth is more precious than its possession.

The significant problems we face can not be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.

The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained liberation from the self.

The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.

The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.

There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

There remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion.

Things should be as simple as possible, but not simpler.

To get to know a country, you must have direct contact with the earth. It’s futile to gaze at the world through a car window

Truth is what stands the test of experience.

Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.

We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books . It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranges and obeying certain laws, but only dimly understand these laws. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that moves the constellations.

We know nothing at all. All our knowledge is but the knowledge of schoolchildren. The real nature of things we shall never know

When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence: Time and space and graviton have no separate existence from matter.

When his wife asked him to change clothes to meet the German Ambassador: “If they want to see me, here I am. If they want to see my clothes, open my closet and show them my suits.”

When the solution is simple, God is answering.

When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, you think it’s only a minute. But when you sit on a hot stove for a minute, you think it’s two hours. That’s relativity.

Where there is love there is no question

Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the life-long attempt to acquire it.

With fame I become more and more stupid, which of course is a very common phenomenon.

Hello
 
I received your request for membership renewal. At this time I question the value of my participation, and ask for your review of the prinicples and direction of the organization to see whether my own is in line with them. My work is based on organizational mythological change. That is, a quantum shift in the way we run our organizations and restructuring the values and processes that direct them. My concern is that, during times of dramatic change, organizational developers are still attempting to apply strategy-only concepts to companies. It is an approach that is guaranteed to fail. Instead OD consultants need to integrate their expertise into what I call a ‘whole-system’ methodology that can increase their own skillsets as well as truly generate global social and organzitional evolution.
 
I offer presentations and ‘world cafe’ conversations relating to the following concepts:
 
– Regenerative Commerce: a commerce system based on principles, not policies
– Ethical Appropriateness: a committment to acting on internal personal values that are integrated into an organizational strategy
– Multidimensial Enterprise Redesign: a method for shifting an organizations structure, its processes for development, and the social patterns it generates.
 
If these are areas that your organization would like to consider, I would gladly consider membership and presentation with the BAODN organization.
 
Kindest regards,
Vic Desotelle—————————————————————————————————————————————-

1-  Use a model to frame discussions.  For example:

 

The EME (cubed) Question Model: 

 

   ·What MAP will we use to guide us?                ·Is it ESTHETIC?                ·Is it EQUITABLE?

(Clarify Shared Intentions, Purpose, Direction)

     Consensusrequired

 

   ·What MEASURES will we use to direct us? ·Is it EFFICIENT?               ·Is it ECONOMICAL?

(Define Goals and Strategies for Success)

Compromise required

 

   ·How will we MONITOR our journey?                        ·Is it EFFECTIVE?              ·Is it ECOLOGICAL?

(Align the Measures with the Map)

Consistency required

 

 

 

– WHAT we think creates our world.      HOW we think transforms it.

 

– I have touched the core of the myth.

We must see it in order to transform it. When the Anunakee genetically linked their male sperm with an Earth mother’s egg, it was their intention to create a slave being that ‘seeded’ our culture’s servant-based revolutions which has been the basis for ourselves and our Earth’s destruction. Revitalization begins by seeing the truth behind the myth and then begin to build a conscious world’s new myth .. the story of our time, not the time of the past.

– It’s in the communion of coming together as a global planet that we come to know of each other’s needs and through this greater conversation, compassion becomes the basis for manifestation and collective knowledge. Corporations must identify themselves with this message and recognize their responsibility to empowering communities to their own learning so that they can build their own cultures and they too must know their responsibility to know of all other cultures including ours.

– in order to transform myth we must also comprehend a different dimension of time. Therefore, the inKNOWvation center will be run under a 13 moon calendar so that we can begin to see the world differently, be in it differently, and create in it differently.

con–fusion:
The word ‘confusion’ does not mean chaos, but instead is a state where there is a lack of clarity. This state is most prominent when the –part-iculates that ‘matter’ move toward a new center of identity. The state that results just after a state of confusion is a new thing, form, or organization.
con & fusion combined original meanings:
‘con’ = to bring together, and ‘fusion’ = the merging of different elements into a union, or coming together. Therefore confusion can be described as: coming together-together (a squared principle) (or … in other words: seeing one’s self or organization converge (i.e. a higher state of consciousness))
At present, there is a sense of confusion that’s contained within our company’s -part-icipants. This is exactly where we want to be as long as we are conscious of its presence (pre–sense). This moves us into Gate 2 of the 8-gate alignment process where the parts (part-icipants) are acknowledged for their place within the whole.

Ideas relating to ‘Building Sustainable Learning Communities’ using concept of creating a ‘Sustained Technology Renaissance’ for the 21st century.

 

How TECHNOLOGY can become a primary vehicle for realizing and expressing emerging global-culture value systems, knowing that integrating such principles into organizations (including the perspectives of Ecological Stewardship, Social Equitability, and Economic Viability) will be key to business success in the new millennium.

 

How to offer a reachable languaging system that allows these concepts to become understandable, acceptable, and applicable for those less experienced in defining the dynamics of an interconnected global society.  This will include discussion around the value of incorporating dynamic group-learning processes and environments as part of a knowledge-based technology business center.

Tetrahedral model for inKNOWvate:..the Rythmal plastic lens is example of SPP (structure pattern process) modeling; put it flat and its a very stable structure that doesnt move, put it upside down and its a wobbly structure that has flexibility and stays in relatively the same place, put it on its side and it rolls back to the top .. wont stay on side unless you spin it, …………. all are processes that are used to create differences in the structure … each of which generates different patterns of identity invisibly as to how the structure looks and how we identify it …. patterning is identification …. the name ‘rythmal’ is the next key word in SPP which is ‘rhythm‘ which is a conscious dance that a subject or object chooses to identify with, the dance is the essence of character of an organization, SPP and the way they are modeled generate the rhythm of an organization, and through that rhythm creates meaning … this gives me a tetrahedron of SPP on the center 3-point plane with two extending points: one is rhythm, the other is meaning; these are actually two pyramids (3sided,not 4) with their bases connected to each other … as these two move in and out of each other, rhythm and meaning amplitudes cross each other’s points, … also within it are two directional spirals within each pyramid that cross each other generating the dualistic masculine/feminine nature where rhythm is feminine and meaning is masculine in nature .. SPP are neutral unless you gone onto the plane, the structure its masculine, process is interdeterminant, and pattern is feminine ??? not sure yet … so how does this rythmal ball model and the above dynamics help inKNOWvate create 3-dimensional enterprise that can withstand the dynamic stresses of a 21-century organization??

MEMORY INSIGHT (structure process pattern related)

mkaufman’s finding old hendrix work he did … he has forgotten that he had already done the same hendrix book we are now doing together: INSIGHT – in the trinity cycle/path of energy movement, an organism can not create memory while in the first cycle of being since it can not be aware of itself because it only IS itself without identifying by seeing (or stepping out of) itself. It cannot even really create memory in the second cycle (process) … Memory occurs in the transition from the second to the third cycle where the hero snaps back to the place in which he started (a break in the process flow continuum) (only to know of the place ‘again’ for the first time) time collapses … then, not until the third does the pattern get set which is the structural aspect of memory actually being established as embedded behavior (thus pattern generates a transformed physical form (structure).

 

METAPHOR APPROACH IN BUSINESS ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT 
As for your question, I used to do that kind of consulting for small businesses and individuals, but I haven’t written anything about the process, although I have sometimes considered starting again as MetaphorWorks Consulting. Right now I don’t have the reason, the energy, or the inclination to do that and the MP too.
 
Although the MetaphorWorks process is usually quite interactive and personal, the general rule of thumb is to get people brainstorming about their favorite childhood stories, best liked pictures, movies, and the images that have the most energy for them, and then move them to trying to identify the images (most people can come up with visual metaphor more easily in dialogue) that form the core of their dreams for their businesses. An example of a business I helped this way is Mercury Moving in Berkeley. They used to be Acme Moving and didn’t like it. Their slogan became

“we move with winged feet” and the logo was a version of the famous image of Mercury (hat with wings). This probably worked best  in the university town Berkeley is, so context is also important.

—– Original Message —–
 
I’m doing some work now with a couple small firms interested in sustainable design and development.
I am interested in how the ‘metphor’ can help these orgs. establish an identity … in symbol and/or language form.
Do you have anything on this?
