Mick Fealty14,223Please 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 Fealty14,223*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 Kellden32,669In 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 Fealty14,223So, 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

"Death rates are rising for middle-aged white Americans, while declining in other wealthy countries and among other races and ethnicities. The rise appears to be driven by suicide, drugs and alcohol abuse."

Good Afternoon All Audacious Minions

My mom can still pull all nighters
It amazes me.
Because I can't... And well, she's my mom so she's definitely older than me.

Me: "Hope you're getting some sleep tonight mom. I love you!"
My mom: "I love you too!"

The message she was really sending? "You're hilarious Alex. Of course I'm not sleeping tonight. But I still love you too."

This is what happens when April 15th rolls around and your mom's a CPA who loves her work... Me, cheering her on through her final hours and simply amazed that she can function on no sleep.___Good Afternoon All Audacious Minions

Five Interlinked Technologies That Affect Us All

There is no more compartmentalization in our world. What drives change in finance is no different to what is driving search, and what drives Robotics. Technology is the tool which we each employ to do things faster and do them differently and technology has far-reaching consequences that frequently outstrip the expectations of those who first implement them. ___21C Literacies: Virtuereality

Contrapposto

Contrapposto [kontrapˈposto] is an Italian term that means counterpose. It is used in the visual arts to describe a human figure standing with most of its weight on one foot so that its shoulders and arms twist off-axis from the hips and legs.

Good Morning All VR Aficionados

Design VR worlds while in VR

There are three companies pushing to allow developers to be able to create VR worlds from within VR: Crytek, Epic, and Unity. Kevin Joyce had a chance to preview Epic's Unreal Engine 4 VR Editor and share his thoughts. I really hope that consumer-oriented world designers hit the market. I've always enjoyed games that offered level creation tools.

"VR Editor has given Unreal Engine 4 the opportunity to revolutionize and democratize video game development in an even more significant way than the Blueprints system has, and should it reach it’s full potential there’s not doubt that in five years from now VR Editor software will become the de facto standard for video game design, whether it be in the creation of end user VR software or not." ___Good Morning All VR Aficionados

Our Future Societies: Last Hours of Ancient Colonialism

"We don't like it here."
-- Louis CK
https://youtu.be/YWZkwuILn_s

Refrain
A rhythmic regularity that brings order out of chaos. Eg a tune a child sings to comfort himself when he may be alone or afraid of the dark, behaviors we escape into when we feel out of place. Wrapping bacon around and pouring sugar into everything.

A circle of concern, a circle of influence, a circle of confluence, a circle of control, of performance.

A refrain can be described as a
- point of order
- circle of control
- line of flight

Eg a blogpost as a point of order, reinforcing a current aspect of groupthink (catgifs, selfies, opinion, content marketing) - followed by a comment thread, reinforcing allegiance to the existing cultural codes, the existing... more »

Our Future Societies: Last Hours of Ancient Colonialism

"We don't like it here."
-- Louis CK
https://youtu.be/YWZkwuILn_s

Refrain
A rhythmic regularity that brings order out of chaos. Eg a tune a child sings to comfort himself when he may be alone or afraid of the dark, behaviors we escape into when we feel out of place. Wrapping bacon around and pouring sugar into everything.

A circle of concern, a circle of influence, a circle of confluence, a circle of control, of performance.

A refrain can be described as a
- point of order
- circle of control
- line of flight

Eg a blogpost as a point of order, reinforcing a current aspect of groupthink (catgifs, selfies, opinion, content marketing) - followed by a comment thread, reinforcing allegiance to the existing cultural codes, the existing environment.

Line of Flight
Designates an infinitesimal possibility of escape; it is the elusive moment when change happens, as it was bound to, when a threshold between two paradigms is crossed. “Line of flight” is Brian Massumi's English translation of the French (Gilles Deleuze) “ligne de fuite,” where “fuite” means the act of fleeing or eluding but also flowing, leaking.
Culture dysphoria is one such moment of leakage, when the social sense of self you see in the mirror is not a face for you anymore:

- when a supposedly familiar (evolutionary fitness) landscape (eg the daily grind) is blurred by the transposition of culture-societal-signifying marks from one milieu to another

- when the socially determined coordinates of cultural-familiarity-identity no longer add up to a legible (legitimate, legitimizing) pattern

- when materiality itself escapes the frame of representation, because this frame is built on old, increasingly obsolete patterns, stories, narratives

- when our experience of everyday life is increasingly being recognized as polarized, polarizing - failing to provide nourishment, value, meaning

Digital Waystations: Confusion & Renewal
Over time and together with others, meeting in waystations situated in more or less liminal realms - exchanging an emphatetic, encouraging, supportive word or three, sharing generative enough refrains - the old social sense of self dissolves and the essential character initiates a metamorphosis out of which, renewal.

Our Future Societies: To Our Impact Journeys

Had we but world enough and time,
This diginess, people, were no crime.
We would sit down, and think which way
To walk, and pass our long love’s day.
Thou by the Indian Ganges’ side
Shouldst thriving villagers find; I by the tide
Of Bicycles would complain. I would
Love you ten years before the flood,
And you should, if you please, refuse
Until our conversion of our news.

Our Future Societies: To Our Impact Journeys

Had we but world enough and time,
This diginess, people, were no crime.
We would sit down, and think which way
To walk, and pass our long love’s day.
Thou by the Indian Ganges’ side
Shouldst thriving villagers find; I by the tide
Of Bicycles would complain. I would
Love you ten years before the flood,
And you should, if you please, refuse
Until our conversion of our news.
My vegetable love should grow
Vaster than media and more slow;
And now, like evolutionary boids of life,
Rather walk paths beyond all strife
Than languish in old storied power.
Let us roll all our journeys and all
Our sweetness up into one ball,
And wear our pleasures, lessened strife
Through the impactful journeys we call life:
Thus, though we cannot make our garden haste
Yet we will as gardeners, now cease our waste.

Our Future Societies: 22,000 Children

"War, natural disaster, pandemics, economic collapse, resource scarcity, how the poor die."

"We're in a double bind. The technologies which could give the answers to resource scarcity (running out of oil, food, fresh water and other raw materials) are inherently very powerful, very dangerous technologies – chiefly nanotechnology, biotechnology and robotics."

Double bind
"an emotionally distressing dilemma in communication in which an individual (or group) receives two or more conflicting messages, and one message negates the other.

The double bind occurs when the person cannot confront the inherent dilemma, and therefore can neither resolve it nor opt out of the situation."

21C Enaction: Thoughts

Our Mind is Central to our Biological Selves. Habit informs our Biology. Everything from hormonal cascaded and biorhythms to nuerological signalling between organs is all addressable by our thoughts and emotions.

What are we doing to meld mind, body, and environment so that we are leveraging the forces within and around us for ratcheting up our wellbeing?

Everybody has ingrained habits they live by which are helping or hindering their evolutionary trajectory.___21C Enaction: Thoughts

Satya van Heummen :
So then I answered

“Yeah the power of slack is that if you don’t follow it all the time then you’ve lost the conversation. So just Slack 24/7 and you’ll be fine :-D”

And then it hit me. This is what drives Slacks’ success. Because if you don’t follow Slack all the time you do not and cannot take part in the conversation with your team members anymore. And that results in:

#1 Social isolation / pressure
Because if you don’t follow Slack all the time, other people reference or know stuff on Slack that you don’t know and you don’t take part in.

Participatory Sensemaking       https://goo.gl/I9pPNK
Catgifs, selfies and content marketing can be seen as our first small steps of digital discourse and beginning participatory sensemaking. We are still predominantly voting as if the Pithy Quotes on Pretty Pictures were part of a popularity contest. They never were. Once there's a beginning shared understanding around a working set of approaches, including generative review, we will begin to level up our sensemaking games.

The strategic outcomes of participatory sensemaking
- digital discourse informed by coordination needs
- trust augmented by digital triangulation between autonomous evolutionary agents
- collaboration out of digital knowledge logistics
- cocreation of value in proactive response to needs
- shared and shareable understanding around talk, know, like, trust and transact

Autopoiesis
“Love is the grounding of our existence as humans and is the basic emotioning in our systemic identity as human beings.”
― Humberto Maturana

Autopoiesis         https://goo.gl/DvBbm8
Page xvii: - It was in these circumstances...in which he analyzed Don Quixote's dilemma of whether to follow the path of arms (praxis, action) or the path of letters (poiesis, creation, production), I understood for the first time the power of the word 'poiesis' and invented the word that we needed: autopoiesis. This was a word without a history, a word that could directly mean what takes place in the dynamics of the autonomy proper to living systems.

Page 78: - An autopoietic machine is a machine organized (defined as a unity) as a network of processes of production (transformation and destruction) of components which: (i) through their interactions and transformations continuously regenerate and realize the network of processes (relations) that produced them; and (ii) constitute it (the machine) as a concrete unity in space in which they (the components) exist by specifying the topological domain of its realization as such a network.[1]

Page 89:- [...] the space defined by an autopoietic system is self-contained and cannot be described by using dimensions that define another space. When we refer to our interactions with a concrete autopoietic system, however, we project this system on the space of our manipulations and make a description of this projection.[2]
-- Humberto Maturana, Autopoiesis and Cognition: the Realization of the Living (1st edition 1973, 2nd 1980

Biosemiosis
A producing of signs, co-extensive with and co-evolving with, life.

Autopoietic Shift
An ongoing dialogue holding a liminal, generative space in which transformations co-evolving with nature, takes place.

Our Future Societies: Serendipituous Interactions

"My personal journey is revealing that the truth can be dressed in whatever details necessary for the individual. Where you see the world around you as an extension of yourself, I see myself as a unique component in a greater whole."

Passion and Plasticity - The Neurobiology of Passion
http://edgeperspectives.typepad.com/edge_perspectives/2011/01/passion-and-plasticity-the-neurobiology-of-passion.html
"What if you could evolve and shape your brain in ways that help you to get better faster? What if you could unleash a virtuous cycle that connects passion, practice and performance?  What if it is not just you who could do this, but a whole cohort of people who have figured out how to wire their brains to accelerate performance improvement and who are committed to working with you to get better faster together?"
-- +John Hagel

From the same link, two great comments by +Reese Jones &

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."

The Seven Sins of Evolutionary Psychology
http://www.flyfishingdevon.co.uk/salmon/year3/psy364-intro-psychobiology/panksepp_seven_sins.pdf
"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."

"In a network, all life is successful muddling through nested problem-solution spaces."
@johnkellden

"Science tells us we are in ecological overshoot. We are using Earth’s resources faster than they can be regenerated. So, too, are we in economic and financial overshoot, propelled by a financial system that demands growth with no concern for the environment and little regard for human well-being. Common sense tells us that an economy that is growing by using up its material resources at an exponential rate is fundamentally misaligned with the finite boundaries of Earth’s ecosphere.

Unless we shift to a new economic model, the result will be a series of mutually reinforcing crises—economic, social, and ecological—a catastrophe on a scale without historical precedent.
Our modern global economy, recent crises notwithstanding, has delivered remarkable historical achievements, and prosperity (for many) unmatched in human history. Now, however, it must evolve to address the grotesquely inequitable distribution of wealth, intractable poverty in much of the world, and chronic failure to deliver living-wage jobs, all while respecting ecological boundaries. The World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and the International Energy Agency all agree that meeting these challenges demands not merely problem solving as we’ve done in the past, but systemic change to address root causes."
-- Hunter Lovins http://goo.gl/ma3zMU

Learning journeys
Taking small steps towards enacting slightly new, slightly different sensemaking schema, towards re-aligning ourselves with our own evolutionary trajectories.

Augmenting, refining and levelling up our listening skills
1. Listening to reply (scan, satisfice - eighty percent of digital discourse)
2. Listening to learn more (fifteen percent of digital discourse)
3. Listening to relate (the trust test)
4. Listening in order to be of service
"The nature of reality is transactional."
-- Alan Watts
5. Listening to be able to more authentically respond (the transparency test)
6. Listening to unlearn (the metalogue, symmathesy test)
7. Listening to understand (cocreating a generative space)

Knowledge expeditions
Making good, intelligent, wise, proactive, enactive use of technologies, including social technology(language) and immersive technology(UI, UX, AI, IA, AR).

Conversations that mind and matter
In a network, conversations that mind and matter, weaves and bridges between mindfulness and convivial, effective action.

"The conversation is the work."
-- David Whyte

Generative review

resilience, reflexivity, response-ability, reach, resonance

- with low collective resilience, there's a pressure to look for someone else to save you, and/or someone else or something else to blame. For context, see ‪#‎TIMN‬

- with low self-reflection, there's a risk of projecting unlived parts of ourselves onto an other.

- with low response-ability, we are at risk of becoming inauthentic individuals, the smile turning part of our mask.

Boundaries
Our circles of concern, circles of influence and circles of confluence need to be ongoingly revisited. Our reach can be redefined as an emergent outcome, out of resilience, reflexivity and response-ability. For context, see complex responsive processes, complex adaptive systems, living systems, symmathesy.

Digital Discourse: Catgifs, Selfies, Content Marketing
A critical mass of human beings, digital participants, are now in the process of moving beyond a digital discourse mainly focussed on catgifs, selfies, opinion and content marketing, taking small steps towards designing and populating 21C Platforms, where our data is owned by and stewarded by us, the participants.

Signals https://goo.gl/Zy0BQq
Trust is a generative sequence. A generative sequence is a sequence of steps that provides structure-preserving transformation.

connect, talk, know, level up, like, trust

Digital Men and Digital Women
In a network, in digital discourse - men need to amplify curiosity, which means focussing on adding considered, considerate comments on other people's posts - and women need to come into their own agency, owning their vulnerability as strength, adding less comments to posts by men, and sharing more posts.

All of the above
All this can be further explored. Data, our data, remains squirreled away. Story, our stories, are fragmented into catgifs and tweets.

Gaia: Right Livelihood

Land Rights Now has launched their Global Call to Action to protect current land and legally secure more land for indigenous and local peoples. Their goal is to double the amount of land legally recognized as indigenous or community land. There are numerous reasons behind their call, including protecting the environment, protecting human rights, and fighting hunger and poverty. You can read more and join the fight by visiting the attached link. The World Resources Institute also did a piece on this Call: http://www.wri.org/blog/2016/03/new-global-goal-doubling-community-and-indigenous-land-2020?utm_campaign=socialmedia&utm_source=plus.url.google.com&utm_medium=wri-page___Gaia: Right Livelihood
