Mick Fealty13,996Please join us and our panel for a vigorous discussion on what the newly launched Northern Ireland Open Government Network.  Guest speakers include John Barry of Queens University Belfast, Tim Hughes of Involve, and Matilda Murday of Democratic Society.  We'll also be joined by Peter Osborne and members of the independent #OpenGov NetworkLate DigitalLunch: What would OpenGovernment in Northern Ireland look like?2015-01-14 20:30:0012  
Mick Fealty13,996*The form’s the thing, not the play within it.* _ @114849048279122543254 explains this first in a short series of talks with @110465386078989533154 on his life's work in theatre, arts and education.__ These two shapes, symbolically, represent the essence of all human activity.   They infuse opposed ambitions at the root of the possibilities of achievement. Everyone (knowingly or unknowingly) is conditioned by such concepts as: Gods and goddesses; Apollo and Dionysos; masculine and feminine principles; individual and collective; freedom and equality; striving and sharing; sky and earth; doing and being; reason and feeling; form and content; actor and audience; etc.  Through the platform, humanity aspires to the sky, determined to take on the gods.  Through the circle, humanity relates to the earth, seeking harmonies within itself and the natural world.  The history of the platform absorbing the circle has controlled human endeavour since Mesopotamian times.  The twenty first century is its dangerous aftermath, as it seeks to create paths to the circle absorbing the platform.  Creativity is the powerless force attempting to find means to achieving that transformation  The form’s the thing, not the play within it.RG Gregory The Platform and the Circle2014-11-19 22:30:005  
John Kellden32,012In this Hangout, we're going to talk about shared understanding, social cognition, enactivity and playfulness. Not necessarily in that order. Three stages of social cognition: *1. Opaque mind: No Is Less* Solemnity. Being serious all the time, even when levity would be slightly more fun and perhaps even meaningful. *2. Absorbent mind: More Is More* Social media. If one social media post is fantastic, let's consume one gazillion? *3. Transceiving mind: Yes Is More* Social cognition. After having said no, one gazillion times, we suddenly rediscover how to say yes. Any sufficiently advanced social cognition is indistinguishable from playfulness. Context - a little something to gear up for the Hangout: _"How do people understand each other?"_ -- Hanneke De Jaegher http://hannedejaegher.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/hannedphilboekformaat.pdf *Bohemian Gravity* https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2rjbtsX7twc *Enaction* _"Enaction is the idea that organisms create their own experience through their actions."_ -- Edwin HutchinsConversation Community: Shared Understanding2014-10-13 17:30:007

Mick Fealty13,996So, a new way for having serious fun in real (rather than virtual) time?  We're looking for a smart idea, a good pub and a decent pint. Oh, and some congentially smart company in a town called Oxford.  Someone (yet to be found) pitches us a smart idea on *how we might positively bridge Ireland's rich past and its uncertain future*.  It's all informal, but with a few important strictures: _One_, it's in a bar (ala cafe scientifique).  _Two_, the key speaker must have his/her pint in hand whilst speaking.  _Three_, the idea must take no more than one minute to pitch.  So a sort of Dragon's Den, but without the hideous dragons. The audience are then be free to prompt a deeper exploration of the idea. Watch this space... Slugger's prototype 'Idea and a Pint Night' in Oxford2014-03-14 19:00:002

Participatory Inquiry, episode 1: A Kind of Homecoming

“In transition, you will find yourself on a different journey.”
@johnkellden

The core metaphor, the function at the heart of things in the Conversation Community, in Conversations that Mind and Matter, turned place, is

Way Station

“They told me they were headed for a planet the name of which I had not heard before, and they talked among themselves, gaily and happily, but in such a way that I did not seem to be left out. From their talk I gained the fact that some form of art was being presented at the festival on this planet. The art form was not alone of music or painting, but was composed of sound and color and emotion and form and other qualities for which there seem to be no words in the language of the Earth, and which I do not entirely recognize, only gaining the very faintestinkli... mehr »

Participatory Inquiry, episode 5: New Doors

“In transition: attractors, adjacent possibles and slightly new paths through new doors.”
@johnkellden

Let’s say you install a Stargate Portal in your home. Even though you might never end up activating it, let alone intend to go through it — it would still make a difference. Distant worlds would suddenly be as if right there.

Donald Favareau:
“Stuart Kauffman’s revolutionary notion of the Adjacent Possible as an organizing principle in nature shares much in common with logician Charles S. Peirce’s understanding of the universe as an ever-unfolding ‘process ontology’ of possibility space that is brought about through the recursive interaction of genuine possibility, transiently actualized order, and emergent (but never fully deterministic) lawfulness.”

Peirce’s understanding of the universe as an ever-unfolding ‘process ontology’ of possibility space that is brought about through the recursive interaction of genuine possibility, transiently actualized order, and emergent (but never fully deterministic) lawfulness.”
https://goo.gl/nsWrKZ

Let’s say you build a vegetables garden together with your neighbors and it’s large enough and tended well enough for you to become near self-sufficient when it comes to food. Suddenly you have disrupted the traditional way of things, if traditional includes going by car to the local supermarket.

Donald Favareau:
“…organisms live out their lives perpetually confronted with negotiating the omnipresent Relevant Next, and are informed by the biological capture of their (and their lineage’s) previous engagements in doing so. And because that “capture” of previous agent-object-action relationships are instantiated as biological signs for the guidance of the organism, not only are “successful survival strategies” within a given possibility space captured (as in traditional accounts of Natural Selection), but captured as well within those signs are the entire complement of previously untaken but still veridical real-world possibility spaces that are inseparably ‘entangled’ with that sign, and just awaiting exploration by the organism.

Thus, while all action in the universe is both current-context dependant and next-context creating, the emergence of ever-more complex semiotic capabilities in organisms has expanded the possibility space of immediate-next-action in the world exponentially, and has brought into being not a pre-given, singly end-directed ordered world, but an emergent, many ends-directed world of promiscuous, unforeseeable and interacting telos.”
https://goo.gl/nsWrKZ

Curated Parts of Elsewhere
Stargates and vegetable gardens remain a bit uncommon. What most people do have installed in their homes, is something called television and more recently something called wireless wifi, through which we can access select, curated parts of worlds significantly outside our local sphere.

Which means, if we are using our television and our wirelessly connected screens, watching food shows and sharing catgifs, we’re doing it wrong. Not wrong in an absolute sense of course, there’s always going to be massively multiplayer scaffolding around all signal (culture by any other name would smell as homogenized), but eventually, wrong as in not optimal, given our evolutionary trajectories unfolding through our semiospheres. The next leg of our journeys, outcomes partially unknown.

Go Adjacent Possible, Young Human!

Eddie Smith:
The adjacent possible is the basic motivation behind all human progress. Countless people have died on the doorstep of new entry ways so that others could walk on in. North America was once an adjacent possibility to Europe, and once found, further adjacent possibilities emerged in the west.

Adjacent Possible: An ever-present set of opportunities at the boundaries of our reach

“The adjacent possible is a kind of shadow future, hovering on the edges of the present state of things, a map of all the ways in which the present can reinvent itself. It captures both the limits and the creative potential of change and innovation.
The strange and beautiful truth about the adjacent possible is that its boundaries grow as you explore them. Each new combination opens up the possibility of other new combinations.”
 — Steven Johnson https://goo.gl/w17zMq

In the face of all this, given that we can’t go west anymore, what is a business to do?

Dave Snowden:
How do you change a system which is entrained around perverse behaviour?

- Map the current dispositional state of the system
- Within those maps identify … patterns of behaviour adjacent to the present but in a more desirable position
- If there are no adjacent possibles, … you need to take actions that disrupt or perturb the existing attractor mechanisms to allow the adjacent possible to emerge

You need the patience to wait for the right moment, but also the courage to act if time is not with you. Wisdom lies the ability to distinguish between those two states.
https://goo.gl/EMgYtw

Life and signs are co-extensive — how about business and technology?

Donald Favareau:
“For only living systems have evolved, by necessity, the ability to “capture” relevant aspects of their own relations with the immediately given Adjacent Possible and to preserve those recipes for future interaction possibilities as biologically instantiated signs.
By so doing, such living systems move into the Adjacent Possible by “collapsing the wave function” of possibility not just probabilistically, as inanimate systems appear to do, but guided by a dynamic that, in every instance, partakes of both the persistently conserved access to the reality of the outside world guaranteed by the feedback cycle of the Uexküllian funktionskreis, and by the emergent yet still evolutionarily flexible system-internal values arising from the organism’s (and its lineage’s) previously captured sign relations, which are biologically instantiated as replicable facilitative system biases and generative constraints.”
https://goo.gl/nsWrKZ

A good business is a business that shows some signs of life. Perhaps both business and technology carries deep within, a desire to come more fully alive, if only through us. Is that a part of our lifeworld where we are yet to capture its full, fully vibrant, relevance? Could this be part of our continued journey? If we find these new doors, what stories do we bring back, what insights do we share with others?___

“…organisms live out their lives perpetually confronted with negotiating the omnipresent Relevant Next, and are informed by the biological capture of their (and their lineage’s) previous engagements in doing so. And because that “capture” of previous agent-object-action relationships are instantiated as biological signs for the guidance of the organism, not only are “successful survival strategies” within a given possibility space captured (as in traditional accounts of Natural Selection), but captured as well within those signs are the entire complement of previously untaken but still veridical real-world possibility spaces that are inseparably ‘entangled’ with that sign, and just awaiting exploration by the organism.

Thus, while all action in the universe is both current-context dependant and next-context creating, the emergence of ever-more complex semiotic capabilities in organisms has expanded the possibility space of immediate-next-action in the world exponentially, and has brought into being not a pre-given, singly end-directed ordered world, but an emergent, many ends-directed world of promiscuous, unforeseeable and interacting telos.”

Curated Parts of Elsewhere
Stargates and vegetable gardens remain a bit uncommon. What most people do have installed in their homes, is something called television and more recently something called wireless wifi, through which we can access select, curated parts of worlds significantly outside our local sphere.

Which means, if we are using our television and our wirelessly connected screens, watching food shows and sharing catgifs, we’re doing it wrong. Not wrong in an absolute sense of course, there’s always going to be massively multiplayer scaffolding around all signal (culture by any other name would smell as homogenized), but eventually, wrong as in not optimal, given our evolutionary trajectories unfolding through our semiospheres. The next leg of our journeys, outcomes partially unknown.

Go Adjacent Possible, Young Human!

Eddie Smith:
The adjacent possible is the basic motivation behind all human progress. Countless people have died on the doorstep of new entry ways so that others could walk on in. North America was once an adjacent possibility to Europe, and once found, further adjacent possibilities emerged in the west.

Adjacent Possible: An ever-present set of opportunities at the boundaries of our reach

“The adjacent possible is a kind of shadow future, hovering on the edges of the present state of things, a map of all the ways in which the present can reinvent itself. It captures both the limits and the creative potential of change and innovation.
The strange and beautiful truth about the adjacent possible is that its boundaries grow as you explore them. Each new combination opens up the possibility of other new combinations.”
 — Steven Johnson https://goo.gl/w17zMq

In the face of all this, given that we can’t go west anymore, what is a business to do?

Dave Snowden:
How do you change a system which is entrained around perverse behaviour?

- Map the current dispositional state of the system
- Within those maps identify … patterns of behaviour adjacent to the present but in a more desirable position
- If there are no adjacent possibles, … you need to take actions that disrupt or perturb the existing attractor mechanisms to allow the adjacent possible to emerge

You need the patience to wait for the right moment, but also the courage to act if time is not with you. Wisdom lies the ability to distinguish between those two states.
https://goo.gl/EMgYtw

Life and signs are co-extensive — how about business and technology?

Donald Favareau:
“For only living systems have evolved, by necessity, the ability to “capture” relevant aspects of their own relations with the immediately given Adjacent Possible and to preserve those recipes for future interaction possibilities as biologically instantiated signs.
By so doing, such living systems move into the Adjacent Possible by “collapsing the wave function” of possibility not just probabilistically, as inanimate systems appear to do, but guided by a dynamic that, in every instance, partakes of both the persistently conserved access to the reality of the outside world guaranteed by the feedback cycle of the Uexküllian funktionskreis, and by the emergent yet still evolutionarily flexible system-internal values arising from the organism’s (and its lineage’s) previously captured sign relations, which are biologically instantiated as replicable facilitative system biases and generative constraints.”
https://goo.gl/nsWrKZ

A good business is a business that shows some signs of life. Perhaps both business and technology carries deep within, a desire to come more fully alive, if only through us. Is that a part of our lifeworld where we are yet to capture its full, fully vibrant, relevance? Could this be part of our continued journey? If we find these new doors, what stories do we bring back, what insights do we share with others?___

Zen of Small Tasks: Talking

Study reveals for first time that talking therapy changes the brain's wiring
A new study from King’s College London and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust has shown for the first time that cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) strengthens specific connections in the brains of people with psychosis, and that these stronger connections are associated with long-term reduction in symptoms and recovery eight years later.

CBT - a specific type of talking therapy - involves people changing the way they think about and respond to their thoughts and experiences. For individuals experiencing psychotic symptoms, common in schizophrenia and a number of other psychiatric disorders, the therapy involves learning to think differently about unusual experiences, such as distressing beliefs that others are out to get them. CBT also involves developing strategies to reduce distress and improve well-being.

The findings, published in the journal Translational Psychiatry, follow the same researchers’ previous work which showed that people with psychosis who received CBT displayed strengthened connections between key regions of the brain involved in processing social threat accurately.

The new results show for the first time that these changes continue to have an impact years later on people’s long-term recovery.

Participatory Inquiry, episode 4: At Home

“In transition, conversations that mind and matter.”
@johnkellden

In which we learn how The Waste Land is related to Guns, Germs & Steel.

Conversations that mind and matter — it’s a thing
A thing can be a group of people gathering together in efforts to make a difference that makes a lasting difference. The conversations can include building a shared and shareable understanding of a patterning that re-aligns.

- Re-aligns with what?
- Ecologies of minds.

In order to achieve this difference, we use information, which invariably invokes mind.

- Re-aligns with what?
- Ecologies of minds.

In order to achieve this difference, we use information, which invariably invokes mind.

Mind
- that which is able to resist purpose and keep purpose from dissecting a seamless universe
- the embodiment and incarnation of metaphor
- mostly not conscious
- that which accomplishes learning
- comparing things, experiences and patterns and finding them more or less related
- that which compares an experience of a present seeing to a memory of what has been seen in the past
- playing by making working relations

Matter: Pattern Anatomy
Each well-intentioned, well-designed pattern, includes:
- context (mutuality, learning)
- problem space (behavior, attention, will, performance)
- forces & building blocks (ecosystemics, cultural and social dynamics, TIMN)
- maps, models, theories (this is a common problem, our near default reduction and representation, remaining stuck inside our obsolete favorite worldviews, our own umwelten)
- solution spaces (conversation)
- play (participation, sensemaking, meaningmaking, decisionmaking)
- story (synthesis, selfhood, service)

Patterns, pattern languages and generative sequences can be fieldtested and used to design processes and build things. The word thing is often important to understand, including how it is different than object.

If we pause the catgifs for a brief spell, if we right in the middle and muddle of our abundance of content, take a moment to look at and see

Participatory Inquiry as a pattern
We can use the above pattern anatomy to better understand it by considering all seven characteristics, including how to engage in conversations that mind and matter, out of which a discourse co-evolving (feedback loops) with our participatory inquiry, towards an ongoing rediscovering how a noun is like a leaf.

Story: We Made It? What Happened? We Happened

- Oh, God, we’re all going to die, aren’t we?
- Well, we might, but every day until we do, we’re going to live.

The story I’ve chosen to highlight here and the comparison of historical patterns, takes place over rather a long time.

In 1922, there were three works of art, three books that can be argued, have been influential in various ways:

- Duino Elegies, Rainer Maria Rilke
- Ulysses, James Joyce
- The Waste Land, T.S. Eliot

In 1933, there was a beginning recovery from the great depression.
In 1945, the ending of the second world war.

In 1997, there were three works of art, three books that can be argued, have made their mark in our cultures and societies:

- The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, J.K. Rowling
- Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies, Jared Diamond

In 2008, there was a reboot of the financial system.
In 2020, the ending of, well, we don’t know that yet.

What patterns do you see?
The important thing here, is not to determine whether the above story and pattern comparison can be validated, but to realize that we are increasingly able to form and compare these and many other patterns, learn from such patterning — and drawing forth new lines (to take a leaf from Paul Klee).

Yes?
Now and then, throughout history there’s been brave people, explorers, entrepreneurs, innovators, visionaries, cyberneticians, making bold predictions and prophesies, some which turned out to be true, some which didn’t.

Access, Attract, Achieve
With the advent of the web and web search, with an increasing wealth of information available, we are living through a moment in history with unprecedented access.

A difference that makes a lasting difference
We are at a place where a whole lot of people, including ordinary people from all walks of life can share stories towards finding new, slightly different questions out of which an exploring of different lines of inquiry.

Are We At Home?
Are we at home in the middle and muddle of all this information? What conversations are we engaging in? What stories are we sharing — towards rediscovering what mind, what patterning?

There’s around 170k possible cards, building blocks of contextual intelligence, a framework and modular methodology.

Although this can sound daunting, it is still a finite set. It can be designed so as to facilitate a good use of networks, including both human heuristics and digital algorithms. A slightly more convivial scaling.

Prototyping & Fieldtesting
In the Conversation Community, core parts of the methodology, including the cards, have been field-tested through digital conversation and discourse, since Nov 2012.

Subsets of the whole deck of 170k cards, suitable for bespoke particular focus areas, can be made available on request.

“In transition, you will find yourself on a different journey.”
@johnkellden

Participatory Inquiry, episode 1: A Kind of Homecoming

“In transition, you will find yourself on a different journey.”
@johnkellden

The core metaphor, the function at the heart of things in the Conversation Community, in Conversations that Mind and Matter, turned place, is

Way Station

“They told me they were headed for a planet the name of which I had not heard before, and they talked among themselves, gaily and happily, but in such a way that I did not seem to be left out. From their talk I gained the fact that some form of art was being presented at the festival on this planet. The art form was not alone of music or painting, but was composed of sound and color and emotion and form and other qualities for which there seem to be no words in the language of the Earth, and which I do not entirely recognize, only gaining the very faintest inkling of what they were talking of in this particular regard. I gained the impression of a three-dimensional symphony, although this is not entirely the right expression, which had been composed, not by a single being, but by a team of beings. They talked of the art form enthusiastically and I seemed to understand that it would last for not only several hours, but for days, and that it was an experience rather than a listening or seeing and that the spectators or audience did not merely sit and listen, but could, if they wished, and must, to get the most out of it, be participants.”
― Clifford D. Simak, Way Station

People turned magical

Most people still secretly believe in magic. This is not an altogether bad thing. It means, imagination is alive and well, and we can dream new experiences into existence and share new stories with others. It also means, that’s where they believe they are — and that’s a good place as any, for our joint departure.

One Thing, Leading Another

1. Build a portal
2. Share the location and purpose of the portal
3. Tell the participants, what they need to leave behind, what gear they need to bring and what glimpses of the beyond they will experience
4. When a group of participants have gathered right next to the portal, go through together what will open the portal and, after the magic experienced and the pot of gold found, what will grant them a reasonably safe passage back
5. Embark

Roadside Picnic

“A picnic. Picture a forest, a country road, a meadow. Cars drive off the country road into the meadow, a group of young people get out carrying bottles, baskets of food, transistor radios, and cameras. They light fires, pitch tents, turn on the music. In the morning they leave.”
 — Arkady Strugatsky, Roadside Picnic

The Secret, Hidden in Plain Sight, in a Clearing in the Forest, in the Muddle and Middle of Things

“You will find this love you miss.”
 — The Police, Secret Journey

A Neverending Return: Sagarmatha Café

Provide means for a safe return. Offer your services: a shared space, a space turned place through sharing stories among returnees, an ongoing, shared, participatory inquiry.
https://goo.gl/tCwcCo

For the Benefit of Others

The mix of participants, their shared experience, their mixtapes and shared stories, the coming and going on different journeys, the Ichigo Ichie and serendipituous encounters — of benefit to seasoned participants and new, future ones alike.

Inbetween Story and Data: Neuroplasticity
Our 21C Inquiry is increasingly characterised by exploring beyond the comfort zones of old, increasingly obsolete 20C narratives: monocultures, old white male entitlement, hierarchy, oligarchy, technocracy, fast carbs, consumerism, ads and proprietary platforms reducing passionate humans to captive eyeballs and clickbait.

Moving beyond is exploration. It requires extending trust to fellow participants and requires meaningful connectivity when returning to the village after the quest, sharing your unique story.

Passion and Plasticity — The Neurobiology of Passion
+John Hagel :
… to steadily strengthen the brain to pursue the passion more and more effectively. A powerful virtuous cycle begins to play out — the more effective our brains become at pursuing a particular passion, the more positive feedback we will feel from questing and connecting. The wiring of the brain will evolve in a distinctive way mapping to the particular passion in question.

Brendan Howley :
We are in fact hard-wired as human beings not simply to share mood-states (passion, charity, altruism) but story itself, which is the predicate for any shared emotion, right? I say predicate because we have to contextualize that emotion in story/meme/narrative (simple as shared personal reflection, complex as a piece of shared immersive tech) before passion means anything.

Boundary Object: There’s A Community For That
All my themed posts in the Conversation Community, forms a modular, reconfigurable, Boundary Object — a prototype designed to facilitate

Participatory Inquiry.

“Coders speak in code, graphic designers talk in pictures, project managers, business designers and photographers all see the world in different ways.
In an ideal world the best practitioners can talk across disciplines; but even then no one can talk across all disciplines.
We all benefit from finding common ground and common points of reference, they help us calibrate the way we work together.
And that’s where prototypes come in, a thing we can all gather around.
In fact there is a sociological concept that sums up what a prototype is: A Boundary Object.”
 — Matt Cooper-Wright

There is even a set of themed posts named Participatory Inquiry, where I outline some of the aspects of the prototype as well as the field-testing & prototyping.

Whereto: Outcomes co-evolving with our participatory inquiry, the lines of inquiry pursued, the unfolding storylines and storymaps.

Why: Helping each other, handling each other with care — explore, aviate & navigate and return, communicate — traversing the Waste Land, in which despite our reputations changeable, situations tolerable — we reach out, rediscovering ourselves in a realm inbetween narratives.

What: Conversations that Mind and Matter

How: Adding considered, considerate comments on other people’s posts.

I’ve been uptight and made a mess
But I’ll clean it up myself, I guess
Oh, the sweet smell of success
Handle me with care
 — Handle With Care, Traveling Wilburys

Our Dreaming Ourselves Awake: Our Search For Wholeness
“Jung called the search for wholeness within the human psyche, the process of individuation. It may be described as a process of circumambulation around the Self as the centre of personality. The person aims to become conscious of him or herself as a unique human being, but at the same time, no more nor less than any other human being.
For Jung, conflict is not only inherent in human psychology, but is necessary for growth. In order to become more conscious, one must be able to bear conflict. There are many internal opposites, as well as those experienced in the outside world. If the tension between the opposites can be borne, then out of this clash something new and creative can grow. In Jung’s view, this ‘something’ is a symbol which will contribute to a new direction which does justice to both sides of a conflict and which is a product of the unconscious rather than of rational thought.
For Jung the symbol is something which cannot be fully explained or understood but has the quality of both conscious and unconscious worlds. The symbol may be the agent of transformation which brings about the development which was so important an aspect of his thinking, and which leads towards individuation as the goal towards which humans strive.”
 — Ann Hopwood

Returning to the Village after the Quest
Once we’ve climbed our mountain, sailed the seven seas and transformed our own inner ogres, we return, assembling past, present and future into some kind of wonderful, some kind of coherent story.

“In a network, meaningful connectivity is amplified and augmented by performance, passion, patterns, participatory inquiry and pull, turning our quest into story.”
@johnkellden

The Seven Sins of Evolutionary Psychology
“The availability of extra general-purpose ‘computational space’ in the cortex may have been sufficient to allow language to ‘emerge’ without the guidance of specific evolutionary selective pressure. As Clark (1997) put it, language may have adapted to the emerging complexities of the brain rather than the other way around. Although once language did emerge, it most certainly provided new social environments for both biological and cultural evolution (Deacon 1997). However, the result of such selective pressures, we would assume, was to dedicate more cortical tissue towards general-purpose symbolic processing. Once there was an urge to communicate and some new intersubjective pragmatics (e.g, social intent and social gestures), language may have been guided by cultural evolution as much as by natural selection.”
 — Jaak Panksepp, Jules B. Panksepp

Reputations changeable
Situations tolerable
But baby, you’re adorable
Handle me with care
 — Handle With Care, Traveling Wilburys

+joe breskin :
The exploration of the nature of our own consciousness is our primary job:

“You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea, because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness. And so to whatever degree any one of us, can bring back a small piece of the picture and contribute it to the building of the new paradigm, then we participate in the redemption of the human spirit, and that after all is what it’s really all about.”
 — Terence McKenna

Participatory Inquiry, episode 1: A Kind of Homecoming

“In transition, you will find yourself on a different journey.”
@johnkellden

The core metaphor, the function at the heart of things in the Conversation Community, in Conversations that Mind and Matter, turned place, is

Way Station

“They told me they were headed for a planet the name of which I had not heard before, and they talked among themselves, gaily and happily, but in such a way that I did not seem to be left out. From their talk I gained the fact that some form of art was being presented at the festival on this planet. The art form was not alone of music or painting, but was composed of sound and color and emotion and form and other qualities for which there seem to be no words in the language of the Earth, and which I do not entirely recognize, only gaining the very faintestinkli... mehr »

From their talk I gained the fact that some form of art was being presented at the festival on this planet. The art form was not alone of music or painting, but was composed of sound and color and emotion and form and other qualities for which there seem to be no words in the language of the Earth, and which I do not entirely recognize, only gaining the very faintest inkling of what they were talking of in this particular regard. I gained the impression of a three-dimensional symphony, although this is not entirely the right expression, which had been composed, not by a single being, but by a team of beings. They talked of the art form enthusiastically and I seemed to understand that it would last for not only several hours, but for days, and that it was an experience rather than a listening or seeing and that the spectators or audience did not merely sit and listen, but could, if they wished, and must, to get the most out of it, be participants.”
― Clifford D. Simak, Way Station

People turned magical

Most people still secretly believe in magic. This is not an altogether bad thing. It means, imagination is alive and well, and we can dream new experiences into existence and share new stories with others. It also means, that’s where they believe they are — and that’s a good place as any, for our joint departure.

One Thing, Leading Another

1. Build a portal
2. Share the location and purpose of the portal
3. Tell the participants, what they need to leave behind, what gear they need to bring and what glimpses of the beyond they will experience
4. When a group of participants have gathered right next to the portal, go through together what will open the portal and, after the magic experienced and the pot of gold found, what will grant them a reasonably safe passage back
5. Embark

Roadside Picnic

“A picnic. Picture a forest, a country road, a meadow. Cars drive off the country road into the meadow, a group of young people get out carrying bottles, baskets of food, transistor radios, and cameras. They light fires, pitch tents, turn on the music. In the morning they leave.”
 — Arkady Strugatsky, Roadside Picnic

The Secret, Hidden in Plain Sight, in a Clearing in the Forest, in the Muddle and Middle of Things

“You will find this love you miss.”
 — The Police, Secret Journey

A Neverending Return: Sagarmatha Café

Provide means for a safe return. Offer your services: a shared space, a space turned place through sharing stories among returnees, an ongoing, shared, participatory inquiry.
https://goo.gl/tCwcCo

For the Benefit of Others

The mix of participants, their shared experience, their mixtapes and shared stories, the coming and going on different journeys, the Ichigo Ichie and serendipituous encounters — of benefit to seasoned participants and new, future ones alike.

Automatic for the People: Augmentation of Flows

The speed of innovation keeps accelerating.

Zen of Soul Tasks: Reincarnation

Hey G+, it's been a while. This is what I've been working on.

Thirty-two sweet pages of physical format, sci-fi poetry, self-printed, self-published, all myself: The Mechanics of Reincarnation. It's about as ambitious as the title suggests. It's wild, like a literary tab of melancholic acid, like a bizarro silicon valley vision stretched to the deep future, VR saturated into social dream burst, romanticism gone mad kinda thing. I'm still trying to find ways to describe it.

I'm not sure. It's been an interesting experience handing this thing out to folks. I'm so used to it being a struggle getting people interested in reading poetry, that it took me aback how intense poetry actually is. If you think about it, to present a chapbook of your own poetry in a casual conversation is the very opposite of casual. People's eyes would widen. They'd say, my God, thank you, this is your poetry.

I'd lay in my bed at night, wide-eyed myself, thinking about what I had just done. There's, like, a lot of me in there.

I'm not sure who's still active on here or what the state of G+ is. I've not been active. It's necessary for me, if I am to work, to stay off of social media! I think, if anyone is interested, what I'm gonna try to do over the next month is start up writing posts again, sharing pictures, getting back into the groove at hopefully a slower, healthy pace before a proper launch of Mechanics on Etsy. For cheap.

Mm and that's the plan.

In other news, spring makes me feel so nice, like an actual person. I hope everyone's been doing good and feeling real too!___Zen of Soul Tasks: Reincarnation

21C Literacies: Digital Discourse

catgifs, selfies, opinion, content marketing

There's one and only one rule here in Conversation:

add considered, considerate comments on other people's posts

Since most people have over-extended their digital reach, and/or experience severe levels of digital ennui, fatigue and/or churn - a great many try to game any which rules in any which online place they frequent, including this one.

Catgif People
Usually don't respond with any which substantial comments at all. They prefer to add comments like "great" "thanks" and/or, eg in FB, add emojis as comments, rather than engage in text-based conversations.

Selfie People
Usually don't engage in digital discourse at all. The exception is, if an Instagram Image and/or a Tweet, is all about them, then they can go on at length, adding comments and responses, provided it is related to their image, their self-image, their thing.

Opinion People
These people usually engage in any which post or comment thread they can find, where they seek for any which kind of excuse for spouting forth their own favorite opinions, more or less regardless whether their opinion is actually relevant for the post and comment thread, or not.

Content Marketing People
Some of these people can actually, meaningfully engage. But most of them, given metrics and their believed need of being in one gazillion groups and places - end up gaming posts and comments, adding non-comment comments, comments that are pretending to be comments, but are more or less thinly disguised comment spam, textual "hooks" "back" to whatever content marketing shenanigan they are currently doing.

According to my own data, the above four modes of engagement, is part of around 98% of all content. The other 2% is authentic digital discourse.

One of the strange aggregated outcomes of all of the above, is for a majority of people having digital accounts, to withdraw from most of the digital discourse, since the discourse, due to the four dynamics outlined above, is a sorry excuse for discourse. Also, this means that platform providers, even dominant ones like eg FB, always run the risk of becoming so popular they become gamed to death. In short, death by anodyne and churn.___

Some self-criticism: I need a better microphone, and to generally tweak my pc settings. I'm also struggling to find the balance of cutting redundancies vs giving the audience time to process what I've said. I know the slides contain too much information for a normal professional talk, but YouTube is equipped with a pause button, and I'm trying to take advantage of the high bandwidth of the medium. ___Our Future Societies: Social Identity

John Cohn: the funny-colored lab coat kinda old guy demonstrating that play and playfulness are sometimes the only things that will save your life, for gosh' sake. I think most of its effectiveness is the guy himself.

When you think about it, that guy is pretty brave, standing at a TEDx thing in a funny-colored lab coat and calling himself a nerd while wearing a halo of lights on his cute bald head. It takes a lot of personal playfulness, if you know what I mean. TEDxs are serious stuff.___Play: Yes Is More
