John Kellden31,537_"We love to figure some #impactfulness out and cocreate value."_ -- John Kellden  Come join the #fabfour   in a Hangout On Air, at 6 PM GMT+1, two hours from now. Your hosts through the Impactfulness: _"I'm out on my porch every day--sun, rain, snow--to watch the wildlife around me. Get buzzed by the hummingbirds. The robin gives me a low fly-by greeting. Hawks and the occasional eagle soar overhead. I live in a Nature Channel."_ --  @100783494986717553112  _"Probably the greatest thing I've learned thus far in my journey in Social Media is that much of what we share and to what extent it resonates with others depends on how we position ourselves and frame our content. The more we learn to be vulnerable and open to sharing our stories to frame what we share, the deeper our connections can grow. Life is too short for shallow relationships; instead, let's go deep."_ -- @101280116286631896187  _"A no-nonsense marketer who can wear many hats in the business and marketing world. Founder of the Social Media Communities on Google+ (http://smhangout.com) with over 250,000 members combined over four communities."_ --  @103008963082975341976   _"In a network, the best place to store knowledge is in other people."_ -- @101010252943098026073  Most welcome with all your impact and impactfulness questions!Conversations That Mind And Matter: Impactfulness2015-01-29 18:00:0058

Mick Fealty13,857*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 Kellden31,537In 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 Fealty13,857So, 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

Robert Best2,685Google+ Relevance CircleWhat people of "relevance" do we have in common? Care to share?This big shared circle contains my most "relevant" circles according to G+. It also only contains people/profiles who post publicly (Either occasionally or prolifically).Do you recognize others in the list? (I think the probability is high)As far as I know, the visual beside the "Add people" button below shows you the 8 people from this circle who are most "relevant" to you. Also, if you click that add people button, the list inside is ordered by "relevance".Some people in this circle I know very well... others I haven't met at all (Besides interfacing with what they share publicly on G+) I'm curious, what circles do we share of high relevance? Give a few people shout outs! Let's have a random chat.You were likely notified of this post... I normally don't share to any of my specific circles, so as to avoid sending out unwanted notifications... But since I have you and your attention here... HELLO! Have we talked before? Why do you think I have you circled? What's of relevance for you? (Besides people on G+) If we do know each other... Have we been in touch lately? If not, let's please catch up!2015-03-03 01:03:39455111

At long last! A book! 

""The Brown Recluse Spider is a much-needed book that brings to light recent research for both a professional and general audience. Its author, Rick Vetter, is the preeminent authority on all matters concerning the brown recluse and related spiders in North America."—G. B. Edwards, Florida State Collection of Arthropods and Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services

"The Brown Recluse Spider is a concise summary of the current knowledge about an infamous spider, with clear relevance to the public perception of spiders in general. Richard S. Vetter has had years of experience conducting research on recluse spiders and educating the public as well as medical personnel. This book features new insights—interesting, amusing, and sometimes sad—drawn from his personal experiences with education efforts."—Richard A. Bradley,The Ohio... more »

Visual Storytelling: Durga

This is Durga with all the symbolism I dont know about, but I've been working with her since my first visit to India in 2007 and she just keeps getting stronger.
I know a handful of glorious women who grew up with narcissist mothers and married abusive narcissist husbands.
We were forced in a way to find nurturing from a source that didn't splinter explode attack or hurt.
I call it forced enlightenment, maybe a good article idea. I worry sometimes about the women who dont have tools and fall into this trap. I'm highly educated and got caught. It almost destroyed me.
How can I help other women who get caught?
I keep giving everything to Durga.___Visual Storytelling: Durga

Gaia: Lake Kaindy

Lake Kaindy near Almaty, Kazakhstan was created as the result of an enormous landslide, triggered by the famous Kebin earthquake of 1911. Successively, rainwater filled the valley and created the lake.
It is famous for being a so-called “sunken forest” - a ‘forest’ of dead trees whose trunks remain upright, half-submerged, half-standing.

21C Storytelling: Koan

Our true nature, our true selves. Truth is, I don't know the answer to the Koan. I wrote down the first thing that came to mind.

Being A Fox- The Tangles In Our Lives
A Zen Koan For You: Baizhang's Fox

As many of you know I am involved with the practice of Zen koan meditation.

I've been haunted by the koan we kept company with this past week and I want to share it with you. It's considered to be one of the more difficult koans to pass through but one of the beauties of koans is that it doesn't matter. There is something there for each of us.

This is a compelling story. Our conversation about it touched on the places we encounter in our lives that we experience as difficulties. The ones we want to get away from, have stop so we can go on living. Thing is, life is already here. This is it.

The koan invites reflection [and conversation] about what it's like to be stuck in the tangles of living that we find ourselves in, the difficulties and trials of being human. Life as a fox. Meeting life where we are, not turning from it in the effort to make the hard things go away, waiting for them to vanish before we think we can start living. We are living now. With whatever is happening.

In ancient China, foxes were reviled creatures and so to be stuck in the body and existence of a fox would be a terrible thing.

Baizhang's Fox

Whenever Baizhang gave a talk, an old man was there listening. He would stand at the back of the hall, quietly keeping himself apart from the assembly. When the people left he left too. One day he stayed behind.

“Who are you?” asked the teacher.

The old man said, “It's true I'm not a human being. In a previous universe, in the time of a different Buddha, I was the abbot on this mountain. A student asked me, 'Does an enlightened person fall under the law of cause and effect?' 'No,' I said, someone like that doesn't fall under the law of cause and effect.' Because of this, I've been reborn 500 times as a fox. Please will you say a turning word for me?”
Baizahang said, “You don't cut the chains of cause and effect.”

At these words the old man had a great awakening.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

+John Tarrant, founder of The Pacific Zen Institute, wrote a beautiful short piece about this koan. I hope he won't mind my putting it here:

”Once in the Australian alps, I did surgery on a red fox using a Swiss army knife. The fox was in a dingo trap, her front paw cut almost through below the elbow. I threw my shirt over her and opened the trap but it was clear that the leg couldn't be saved, and the fox waited while I cut it off. The fox had such an air of desperation, anguish and loss, her fur was stuck to itself, she smelt of fear and brokenness. She had little likelihood of survival and was anyway an alien, a non-native creature, considered a pest by biologists. Nonetheless this was a true meeting, she is someone I really met. She is certainly gone now, the people in my life then are gone, the snow at the tree line, and even the climate of that time is gone."

"The mind is built on brokenness and mutilation, and the way I see it the whole thing is a continuous flow. Each moment is also full of reasons and brightness. The fox's shaking, matted beauty touched me, an enlightenment inside the life we both have. It wasn't a trick of the light, the brokenness itself is complete, there are whole worlds inside the brokenness."

"When I keep company with a koan, whatever comes to me, is the koan, it doesn't have to be the tame version, have four whole legs or even belong to the same universe. It's alive.”
John Tarrant, http://www.pacificzen.org/

The Painting

Our dear longtime friend, Allison Atwill, who has, during the course of our long friendship, founded our local Sangha (Zen koan meditation group), become a sensei (teacher) and recently, a Roshi (full teacher, leader) having received transmission from her teacher (mine as well), founder of the Pacific Zen Institute), guides us in our experience of Zen koan meditation each week when we meet.

Allison is also a very gifted artist and this is a video of her discussing her koan paintings and the photo of the one I've included below. https://vimeo.com/25840066

Enjoy!

Perceive Wayfinding: We Love To Figure Thinks Out

A guesstimate: eighty percent of all wicked problems are due to our dual needs of uniqueness (we don't see eye to eye) and belonging (tribal shared vision).

The last five-hundred years, with its possible culmination in selfies(uniqueness) and catgifs(belonging) can be seen as a deep unlearning of old cultural behavior, the alienation and fragmentation part of our turning confused enough so as to make room for a collective autopoietic shift.

As if WE (writ 7bn) are figuring things out, by running simple, robust, resilient massively multiplayer perception processes through digital networks.

Think Out Loud: Economy, Efficacy & Ecosystemics of Cognition

Once our cognition embraces all four modalities (quadrants) our systems turns increasingly scenius/serendipity & spirit/sovereignty and our slingshots turns increasingly both resonant and toroidal.

Any which 2x2 is then increasingly seen as a scaffolding handshake protocol between holonic levels of relevance and situational awareness.

Think Out Loud: Economy, Efficacy & Ecosystemics of Cognition

Once our cognition embraces all four modalities (quadrants) our systems turns increasingly scenius/serendipity & spirit/sovereignty and our slingshots turns increasingly both resonant and toroidal.

Any which 2x2 is then increasingly seen as a scaffolding handshake protocol between holonic levels of relevance and situational awareness.

Game
A semi-bounded and socially legitimate domain of contrived contingency that generates interpretable outcomes.

A domain of contrived contingency, capable of generating emergent practices and interpretations and intimately connected with everyday life, some of these connections usually poorly understood.

A social artifact always in a process of becoming.

A set of autopoietic processes - dynamic and recursive, largely reproducing its form through time but always containing the possibility of emergent change.


These four game definitions are from Thomas M Malaby

some of my ongoing work re music and resonant biosemiosis relates to this as well:

Process
Biosemiosis, co-extensive with life, as if meaningful, as if including a possible telos, and with the possibility to co-evolve with context and contextual intelligence.

Becoming
The possibility of generative sequences co-evolving with more or less loss-less generative assessment and review, without (too much) arresting flow and experience of meaning.

Individuation
A set of processes, out of which an emergent vector: a process of (individual) becoming.___

Life in the Village: Dragons

A May Day, or Labor Day Surprise!

My dragon gal Kaitai, the same one that delivered a whole clutch of eggs on Valentines Day, Gave me a huge surprise today, by laying ONE egg!

He timing is both humorous and intriguing. Dragons will sometimes "double clutch", but when they do, it is usually weeks apart, not months. Yet they seldom have more than two clutches a year, either. So, although I thought she was getting a bit "round", I thought it unlikely that I would see any more eggs for a while...

And as an update, The first batch from Valentines day, are still incubating, growing in size, but no sign of hatching yet. It could still be another month or more. As I am using a cooler temp than the maximum recommended, the time is extended, but it's possibly safer.

I will of course post "baby pictures" as soon as any hatch!  :-)___Life in the Village: Dragons

21C Collective Action Toolkit: Rediscovering (Our) Nature

A "meatspace" friend (she sailed around the world in a boat I built) posted a great piece this AM on FB about the words that we use for nature, that she got from another meatspace person who I love dearly and get to work with from time to time.   It's here, and it's important. 
http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/feb/27/robert-macfarlane-word-hoard-rewilding-landscape

I introduced it as follows: "... we live in "Orwellian times" and nature is still in the lexicon but just so totally not part of the "modern" world's vocabulary that "natural" has become synonymous with "conventional" which is synonymous with "green revolution" and ultimately and immediately - in just those 3 hops - it becomes synonymous with its antithesis: "unsustainable".

I would expect GMO and geoengineering are both on the list, too. Because the delusion is building once again - basically, it's the same one I grew up with as the post WWII space-race picked up momentum - the same one the EPA chose to as their anthem to address environmental problems: that "dilution is the solution to pollution"; that there is a place called "away" where we can go, or banish our problem-children to, or at least conjure, a place where the rules of nature simply do not apply.

I was nearly 45 years old when I started taking my own "carbon footprint" seriously. It was my first big "hundredth-monkey" experience and it happened right before Bill McKibben started writing about the end of nature ... when I was reading about that Chinook Indians who once lived in the area around Hood River, probably the richest, or at least cushiest ecosystem in North America. Buffalo to the east and deer and berries on the sides of Mt Hood to the south, and of course the "endless" river of salmon swimming up the Columbia. The Chinook people had their lives set up so each person worked about 80 days a year, and the rest of the time was devoted to art, storytelling, or fairly well organized play. My own Ah Hah! was that even though I was deliberately living as a minimalist, largely unheated house, mostly travelling by bicycle, eating vegetarian, if I did an inclusive LCA, I was still probably releasing at least 80 (and probably hundreds of) times as much carbon per year as any one of them, and yet I was having less fun than any one of them, let alone 80 or a hundred of them. That was a wtf moment.

That observation gets me to the point of this ramble.

Yesterday, I was talking with a friend who is in the middle of an existential crisis. She was postulating that shamanic intervention might be the best way to address the fundamental despair that she (like many of us in the west) was mired in. I proposed that the things we were discussing were in fact first-world problems. Neither understandable or imaginable to people who lived closer to nature. And this article dovetails on both ends with another that is both close to my heart and central to the interests of that very same friend - the hope of reviving the embers in the remains of a few non-European languages that are reflective of and even carriers of the vestiges of alternate cosmologies, of alternate ways of seeing and experiencing the world, that might still offer pathways out of the current morass of paradoxical and zero-sum constructs. Very much in the spirit of the Einsteinism that reminds us that we should NOT expect to solve the problems we face using the same thought systems that created them. Check it out.

21C Collective Action Toolkit: Man, Machine, Metalogue

The Mirror Bubble

In communication accommodation theory the interlocutor subconsciously (or not) mirrors his counterpart because it represents the path of least resistance for the establishment of a connection between the two. Search does not necessarily need to be 'liked' by us but it needs to establish its usefulness immediately in the most visible way possible. By taking into account many of the signals that we habitually employ during a mirroring process it may end up presenting the results we are most likely to interact and engage with instead of the ones we most would like to see. 

There are open questions here: Is the need for search to establish immediate value a potential trap? Are the results we are most likely to engage with not also the same as the ones we most want to see?

Search, at this level of interaction, moves from the domain of serving answers to questions into the domain of establishing a psychological connection with its end users.  ___21C Collective Action Toolkit: Man, Machine, Metalogue

Exam Questions: Which One's?

One of the first products in the 21C Collective Action Toolkit, is a set of around nine-thousand questions, connected via pattern languages and generative sequences with a set of nine-thousand definitions in a 21C Collective Action Glossary.

One of the benefits here is improved graph traversal, knowledge flow, through shared and shareable understanding - and once a critical mass of people are living the questions, patterning and coordinating their (networked) efforts and build practices aligned around the definitions, it will serve as a shared language.

Think GitHub for social, cultural, civilizational code.

Below part of a comment thread from another post: 
http://goo.gl/lFkY25

+Ron Scroggin :
I hope that like music, conversation is an art-science +Amelia Hoskins.

Although I sometimes go wading in the waters of complexity I'm a sucker for the clarity of presentations like the Teaching and Learning Styles page. I suspect I started out as more visual, followed by auditory. 

+Ron Scroggin :
+John Kellden I would like to see musical and music-like awareness shared more, among just about everybody, so that being an artist is a regular part of life (as it already is when we're born, as suggested in the Krueger article), and that goes for visual and tactile (and textile) arts, and literature, and kinetic arts. All these things are part of the conversation.

Maybe some of the modular affordance of the (read-and-write style) Plug and Play Method Cards can be transformed into other styles as well (visual, auditory, kinesthetic).
 
+John Kellden :
One of the best lines of inquiry I've ever read +Ron Scroggin 

Let's!

Placing some stuff on the session table in case we need it:

- Ken Robinson video - could be he has outlined a good enough starting pull, a combined goal and attractor

- intelligences as enabling dynamic representation

- KE, ICSE, ValueWeb Play Space (or similar umwelt representation, learning environment) as prototype intelligences translation, transformation affordance

Card session to check whether we can start with those three items on the table or if we need more...
 
+John Kellden :
<thinking out loud>

Two-player session - a pre-session ( Ron and John )

Starting simple, with one card - the objective being linking one card(text) with a possible resonant, a card(image) so to speak. Then check if these two can be "read", if they "speak" to us, if they set up a good enough translation, and what (if possible) to call the resonance/edge between.

(we can use the 21C ValueWeb space for the session)

Remix, recursion: The below comment thread

+Grizwald Grim :
inference?
It's clearer to me when you say archetype over 'digital artifact' - but note that it maps to identity formation, and that the chakra system of seven candles balances maps really well to making a memetically viable artifact of any type...

+Grizwald Grim :
Conjecture
If you can teach +Kristin Drysdale how to dance in the memesphere, there's a lot of data about kinesthetic art in her head.

#CVTdeck  Q2

+Grizwald Grim :
Conjecture
The anchor should be the CTA as collaborative opportunity - at minimum in the form of participatory content/expertise marketing - does social proof as contributor to a successful venture provide sufficient ROI re: time/energy management?

J4

+John Kellden :
Thanks much +Grizwald Grim  for setting up a beginning scene for you, me, +Kristin Drysdale  and +Ron Scroggin !

#music   #movement   #performance  

-------------------------

Yes. Four of the archetypes I've begun to map:

- Epimetheus/Prometheus
- Mermaid/Unicorn

Me and +Mani Saint-Victor  have coralled some of the dynamics in a couple of HoA's.

+John Kellden :
"Memetically viable", as both sign and vector, maps really well with #biosemiotics   

+John Kellden :
Connecting dots, aligning vectors:

Archetype: Rockstar
Artifact: Guitar
Audience: Resonant parts of our embodiment

The slightly de-constructed Guitar in the image, affords perspective.

+Grizwald Grim :
+John Kellden I'd prefer the archetype reflected the mermaid/unicorn genre personally, but let the framing fit the market.
 
+John Kellden :
Excellent conjectures as always +Grizwald Grim  - anchoring can be (re)framed as niche in an ecosystem, as umwelt in a semiosphere. The CTA is then a slightly better handshake in a protocol that is at least partially, not only understood, but embraced.

Could well be, that a large part of CTA's are about

#emulate   

Rich context here:
http://www.gizmag.com/emulator-dj-touchscreen-mixing-desk/20607/

+John Kellden :
<noticing excellent network protocol in the making>
Great weaving +Grizwald Grim   

Some of our session ( +Ron Scroggin and me in another space), is almost bound to resonate with quite a few of the lines of inquiry, the unfolding, the weaving, we've begun in this thread. I'd like to leave to Ron, sending "dispatches", from there to here, so to speak...

stay tuned for further updates...    :)

"I've contacted well known design firm IDEO for several design projects.  Being embedded in their teams as we identified "extreme consumers" and then employed ethnography to better understand their user journeys was fascinating.  A hands on understanding of  the delighters and frustrators in all of the product offerring touch points can be very powerful. 
I learned a lot from the IDEO methodology and it has imprinted permanently on the way I perceive product and service offering design."

Life in the Village, part 252: New York

Humans of New York:
“After my mother died, the four of us bounced around in foster care. Luckily we were all able to stay together. After several years of moving around, we eventually found a permanent home. Our new parents were Fidia and Luis Figuereo. I remember the first day we arrived at their house. They were cooking up a storm. I can remember exactly what they were making: rice, yellow beans, and steak. At that point I assumed that it would just be another foster home, but we soon became a family. The Figuereo’s had two kids of their own, so there were six of us total. All the girls were in one room and all the boys were in another room. 
“Do you remember the moment you began to see them as your family?”
“I do. I got in trouble at school one day because I wouldn’t take off my hoodie in class. And I remember Fidia showed up, and I thought: ‘Oh crap. Here comes Mom.’”

Life in the Village, part 251: Spiders

For you +Stacey Blanchard​ & +Margaret Siemers​ :)

At long last! A book! 

""The Brown Recluse Spider is a much-needed book that brings to light recent research for both a professional and general audience. Its author, Rick Vetter, is the preeminent authority on all matters concerning the brown recluse and related spiders in North America."—G. B. Edwards, Florida State Collection of Arthropods and Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services

"The Brown Recluse Spider is a concise summary of the current knowledge about an infamous spider, with clear relevance to the public perception of spiders in general. Richard S. Vetter has had years of experience conducting research on recluse spiders and educating the public as well as medical personnel. This book features new insights—interesting, amusing, and sometimes sad—drawn from his personal experiences with education efforts."—Richard A. Bradley, The Ohio State University, author of Common Spiders of North America."
