Mick Fealty14,268Please 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 20:30:0013  
Mick Fealty14,268*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 Kellden32,287In 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 Fealty14,268So, 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

21C, episode 17: Trust

"In a network, the strategic outcome is trustflow."

"Problems are tough because they are complex in three ways. They are dynamically complex, which means that cause and effect are far apart in space and time, and so are hard to grasp from firsthand experience. They are generatively complex, which means that they are unfolding in unfamiliar and unpredictable ways. And they are socially complex, which means that the people involved see things very differently, and so the problems become polarized and stuck."
-- Adam Kahane, Solving Tough Problems

Win-Win-Win
The Optimal Strategy Is Doing Things With Win-Win-Win Outcomes
1. Share your unique story
2. Carve out your unique niche
3. Be a servant leader in your ecosystem

"In a network, understanding is the deriving of a pattern from shared experience and our aesthetic enjoyment is our recognition of the pattern."
@johnkellden

"This was the earth, he thought - a planet made for man. But not for Man alone, for it was as well a planet for the fox and owl and weasel, for the snake, the katydid, the fish, for all the other teeming life that filled the air and earth and water. And not these natives alone..."

21C, episode 28: How To Live Together

"In a network, our core source of generativity is our lack of understanding how to live together in a changing world."
@johnkellden

"For both the rich and the poor, life is dominated by an ever growing current of problems, most of which seem to have no real and lasting solution. Clearly we have not touched the deeper causes of our troubles. It is the main point of this book that the ultimate source of all these problems is in thought itself, the very thing of which our civilization is most proud, and therefore the one thing that is “hidden” because of our failure seriously to engage with its actual working in our own individual lives and in the life of society."

Zen of Small Tasks: Tacit Knowledge

Happy birthday +Dirk Puehl myfriend. So pleasant to know that each age has its own Tacitus and you’re ours. 

The wise historian walks through the wild lands of history, chasing the shadows that wander with expressions of terror, beauty, magnificence or ignominy.
Subject of history are not the trivialities of our spieces, but the fleeting epiphanies of a demon or a god.
History is the study of the times when an essence is revealed.

Zen of Small Tasks: Waking Up

Metalogue: #imagineering

#meraki   #autopoieticlift

Autopoiesis
"People waking up, rediscovering themselves is a natural, biological, evolutionary process. During our awakening, we are presented with serendipituous opportunities for #meaningfulconnectivity and to respond and leverage by developing #intelligentbehavior .

This behavior when coordinated through digital platforms and anchored in local communities, can be focussed on rekindling fundamental principles of living systems.

Applying these principles, we can cocreate new artifacts, cultural artifacts and practices and whole future societies operating as resilient villages and regions, inhabited by vibrant, thriving people."

CTA: Call To Action
I've developed a methodology, working name Meraki that can be used to kickstart this I need participants to make this happen.

21C, episode 27: Mixtapes

"In a network, we manufacture convivial experience."
@johnkellden

Frame Analysis
"There is a relation between persons and role. But the relationship answers to the interactive system—to the frame—in which the role is performed and the self of the performer is glimpsed. Self, then, is not an entity half-concealed behind events, but a changeable formula for managing oneself during them. Just as the current situation prescribes the official guise behind which we will conceal ourselves, so it provides where and how we will show through, the culture itself prescribing what sort of entity we must believe ourselves to be in order to have something to show through in this manner."

21C, episode 26: Indra's Net

"In a network, there's a deep listening available, an emergent, constantly morphing, transforming noospheric hum, dance and performance out of a resonant tesselating patterning between ecosystemic characteristics, individual vectors, generative social fields and spacetime folds."
@johnkellden

Individual Vectors
synthesis, selfhood, service, synthesis

Generative Social Fields
Scenius as the emergent, resultant vector out of collective intelligence, and our individual intelligences co-evolving with our boid rules.

Folds
A fold is both a negentropic nexus and a local optimum affording the next stage of the journey through the fitness space.

One of us traveled to Gehry's Santa Monica offices and worked with the project architect, Matt Fineout, on the problem. We first identified those miscellaneous spaces that had to be squeezed into the smaller footprint (tea kitchens, closets, rest rooms, storage areas, and spaces for copiers, fax machines, and printers). There were many constraints to be met including proximity to classrooms and offices, "ownership" by various departments and research centers, and circulation patterns in each area. We went through the floor plans, beginning with the lower level and working our way up to the fifth floor. The process took two days.Working with large sheets of onionskin paper laid on top of floor plans, we would sketch possible arrangements until we had something we all agreed was a good solution. Then we would transfer the arrangement in red pencil onto the plans. Each move of one element affected others and often required backtracking and revising previously located elements. Many times during the two days, we would reach a roadblock where things were just not working out, so we would start with a clean sheet of onionskin and try a different approach. At the end of two days, it was a tremendous sense of accomplishment to have succeeded in locating all the required elements into the reduced floor sizes. We were working at a large table and Matt was leaning far onto it, marking the final changes. As he pushed back from the table, we were joking about how tedious the process had been and how glad we were to have it over. As we joked, Matt gathered all the sheets of onionskin and the marked-up floor plans, stacked them, and then grabbed an edge and tore them in half. Then he crumpled the pieces and threw them in the trashcan in the corner of the room. This was a shock! What was he doing? In a matter-of-fact tone, he said, "We proved we could do it, now we can think about how we want to do it."

Flowing With Change
belonging, uniqueness, thrivability, play, reciprocity

Out of which, a new set of extendable codes, five conversations essential for redesigning community, culture, society - cocreating value and wealth.

Five Conversations That Mind And Matter

Making money
This desire has its roots in safety and security as well as other related deep drives. The corresponding literacy is

#belonging  

The previous  currency conversation effectively ended in 2008, and we're now in the middle of setting up a new glocal conversation, including exploring alternative currencies, alternative structures and insights how to engage differently.

Experiencing a sense of meaning, fulfillment and flow
This desire is gradually effecting and changing us, in many different ways. The literacy that relates to this desire is

#uniqueness  

One way of looking at uniqueness is to look at the Renaissance, and how individualism has evolved ever since. The 21C will see a multitude of different approaches for combining and synthesizing Uniqueness and Belonging.

Transition
This is the challenge. You can't get there from here. The literacy here is

#thrivability ,

the choice of consciously flowing with change. It can also be defined as a living, dynamic, evolving balance between Uniqueness and Belonging.

Opportunity
This conversation is all about how to combine making money in the Social Era, in this day and age of Transition. The literacy here can be called Play, ie the ability to handle contingencies, ambiguity and uncertainty.

Ecosystems - TIMN
This conversation is all about how to reweave between Transition and Uniqueness, eg how to find our own uniquely fulfilling niches in our ecosystems. The literacy here is

#reciprocity

What complexifies these conversations, is our attachment to different wholesale, package deal narratives, worldviews and sensemaking systems. One way of describing how we are evolving through and transitioning beyond any which static systems, is to look at things through a TIMN lens.

TIMN: Tribes, Institutions, Markets and Networks

Tribe
All of us have a need to have a close circle of family and friends. If we're mostly operating from a tribe worldview, we tend to see most all other people as "other" with all the difficulties this brings.

Institutions
All of us need to pay sufficient allegiance to the institutions we've designed as part of our societies and our societal agreements. If we operate predominantly from an institutional worldview, we tend to see everything that cannot be "codified" as potentially upsetting, and we then run the risk of turning increasingly rigid and resistant to change.

Markets
All of us participate constantly in a whole host of market activities, one big, glocal ball of yarn of producer, middleman and consumer. If we operate primarily from a market worldview, we risk alienate ourselves from those activities and experiences that doesn't benefit from putting a dollar sign on them.

Networks
All of us are part of one seamless universe. In a nutshell, our physical bodies are remnants of previous supernovas. Our cells form and dissolve, our individual physical continuity nothing but a pattern.

Network Risks

Solipsism
Looking at ourselves and the world through a network lens, there are two risks - one risk is turning into a plutocrat, sociopath, narcissist, solipsist - frantically trying to define ourselves as unchanging, separate nodes in the growing realization of an "outward" seemingly chaotic and meaningless flux. Capital and power as a vain defense against change.

Oneness
The other risk is to loose all interest in worldly pursuits, and prematurely striving to become one with the network, one with everything and/or ecosystems, at the expense of being able to relate meaningfully to the other people who operate from different worldviews, and also, at risk of seeing oneself as being superior from this attachment to oneness.

"In a network, all our wicked problems are gifts from our own collective intelligence, catalyzing our becoming."
@johnkellden

Wicked Problems
"A wicked problem is a social or cultural problem that is difficult or impossible to solve for as many as four reasons: incomplete or contradictory knowledge, the number of people and opinions involved, the large economic burden, and the interconnected nature of these problems with other problems."
-- Jon Kolko

Healthy Individuals in Healthy Communities
All healthy, thriving communities, exist further out the chaordic edge, compared with eg institutions, bureaucracies, corporations.
Even further beyond communities, there’s healthy, vibrant (not yet gamed) markets. All of these artifacts, constructs, are part of temporary clearings in the forest, human beings huddling together, muddling through, realigning with ourselves, with others, with ecosystems.

Social Tech
From a societal innovation lens, institutions, bureaucracies and corporations, are useful social tools, if they serve communities.
Between communities, it is possible to define and design webs of value — once they are used as edges, between communities as holons, comprising interdependent agents (aka networks) — these webs will include knowledge ecosystems, and in the touch points between web and community: knowledge markets.

Social Presencing
Between the knowledge markets and the parts of our ecosystems which we are gifted with stewarding - dynamic narrative alignment, enacted through  http://goo.gl/5wltGS  Knowledge Expeditions.

Networks designed to enable (knowledge) logistics, rather than advertising.

2020 - 2022
Humanity rising to the occasion (or not) depending on how much resonance and resilience we've managed to broker through our new distributed, distributive platforms.

2023 - 2025
Data and Narratives. Uncovering the options we need, rather than using data to reinforce what we've already got.

2026 - 2028
Demise (and possible partial rebirth) of institutions on all levels. Core dynamic behind the transformation: awkward procedures, too much lag time between cognition and action. The insufficiency of Davos.

2029 - 2031
Understanding. Experiential understanding. A proliferation of grassroots movements. Most of which will fail. Some of which will succeed, turning societal imaginal cells, depending how quickly the institutions realize they need to remove themselves.

2032 - 2035
Last hours of ancient beliefs. All kinds of weird shit - tribes, reactionary movements, conspicuous consumption bordering on Elysium-levels.  Out of which a deep unlearning of obsolete beliefs. Birth pains of sustainable regions, some which will make it, some which will not.

2036 - 2038
Equity and ecology co-evolving. Achieving decent livelihoods for all the human beings that remain. Regions increasingly coordinating needed efforts.

2039 and beyond...
The second half of the 21C will be characterised by our collective, collaborative, cocreative capabilities for stewarding autopoietic shift.

There's three main scenarios:

- Slow Crash (default & devil take the hindmost)
- Elysium (crash & entitlement separate)
- Long Boom (equity & ecology)

A massively multiplayer sensemaking game called 7 bn
What is good in all three scenarios, is that all the poor and all the uber-rich can be counted on to react in fairly predictable manners.
The wild card, the key uncertainty, is a small yet significant proportion of humanity inbetween. If we (whoever decides to rise to the occasion) coordinate our imagination and imagineering.

Finding 300k Others
My best guess for now - we need to gather together 300k people, to achieve critical catalytic mass, including kickstarting new covenants and new currencies.

Conversations That Mind And Matter
There's a set of patterns, generative sequences, method cards and story-cards in development, compatible with the outlined scenario, which will work to turn our conversations into stories making for effective collective action, and once we've rediscovered how to play really well with others on a small planet, stewarding autopoietic shift.

Situational Awareness Out Of Shared Understanding
If we build sufficient shared understanding, out of these two articles - we will save time. There's obviously much more that needs to be shared - we need to place our trust in any and all others in digital networks, to share what unique part of the puzzle, will add to the autopoietic shift - or at the very least not work actively against it.

Thriving individuals co-evolving with resilient communities
As for the three-year stages - yes, time can be shortened, but only if we turn authentic enough. A bit paradoxically, we need strong, healthy, vibrant, resilient, thrivable, anti-fragile ego's - if we are to accelerate the above process. As a general rule, people will let go of their comfort zone and their denial and their confusion, only when all other options are exhausted.

Deep Stuff: States & Signalling

"There are two ways to handle the time dimension in ANNs. You can use recurrent networks with delays, which is the currently most popular strategy since it's used in Deep Learning systems.

The other is to do what Numenta and Syntience do. In these systems neurons (nodes) have explicit state and the state changes depending on recent signaling. At the cost of a couple of bits in state, you don't need delays or recurrence, leading to simplified signaling and debugging.

In the Numenta/Syntience strategy, signaling is binary (0/1) and synapses have a threshold value that determiens if the signal will propagate.

21C, episode 19: Valueweb

"In a network, we create knowledge and cocreate value."
@johnkellden

ValueWeb
A space for creation of knowledge and cocreation of value, where participants:

gather, diverge, emerge, converge and produce

Another way of putting it is: a valueweb is a dynamic graph which evolves with our leveraging the network through good use.

21C, episode 19: Conversation Community

"In a network, we cocreate value, out of which we shape meaningful connectivity into webs of value, which then shape us in return."
@johnkellden

Conversation Community: Cocreation of Value
- add considered considerate comments on other peoples posts
- discover meaningful connectivity
- develop trustflow
- discern cocreation of value
- design deliverables

The only mandatory task in the Conversation Community, is the first:

add considered, considerate comments on other peoples posts

The other four is for anyone who'd like to engage more, and achieve a better, slightly different, slightly more encouraging return on engagement.

Engagement and Return on Engagement

gather, diverge, emerge, converge, produce

Instantiated, implemented right in the middle of a collaborative, cocreative flow, eg in a GitHub, PenFlip, Google Doc Collaborative Sensemaking workflow:

Online Community: Gather - Post and Comment
Fork: Diverge - Discover meaningful connectivity
Metalogue: Emerge - Hold space for trustflow, for evolution of conversation
Merge: Converge - Discern cocreation of value
Google Doc Prototyping: Produce - 21C Mixtapes and lots of other things

Trustflow
The more trustflow we develop between ourselves, the more trust that emerges out of our conversations, out of our complex responsive processes, the easier it'll become to cocreate value and do great things together.

Social Learning
A living dynamic balance between engagement and return on engagement. Too much engagement without any return, turns participants into small insular groupthink tribes. Too much return on engagement without sufficient engagement, turns participants into social media marketers.

Value
Why do I emphasize the comments to the point of making it THE mandatory task in the Conversation Community?

Source of Value: Intention
The intention we're holding a fraction of a second before adding a comment, is the source of eighty percent of the value in the whole community.

Levelling Up
By becoming increasingly aware of our own intentions, it is perfectly possible to get more out of all our social, digital interaction, through understanding the following levels outlined above.

Win-win-win: Convivial OODA-loops
There's a recursion quality to all the five levels as well. It is possible to think of them as if a Convivial OODA-loop.

A traditional OODA-loop: Observe, Orient, Decide & Act, was originally conceived as a Win/Loose approach - a dogfight between combat airplanes.

A convivial OODA-loop is very similar, yet with a focus on a #winwinwin  outcome:

Add: Enact
Discover: Perceive, Observe
Develop: Sensemake, Orient
Discern: Wayfind, Decide
Design: Synthesize, Produce, Act

It's an OODA-loop, with an added Enaction context. If what you add is sufficiently enactive, it serves as stigmergy, a sign, cue, catalyst, part of our collective mapping, part of our shared and shareable understanding, upom which others then can add and build further, shoulders of giants.

21C, episode 18: Quest

"In a network, our questing disposition co-evolves with our social cognition."
@johnkellden

21C, episode 18: Intelligence

"In a network, social cognition, recognized by effective interactions co-evolving with convivial ambiance."
@johnkellden

At other times, existing default patterns of intelligence kicks in:

1. Conditioned intelligence #we  
Intelligence residing near completely inside unquestioned, unexamined package-deal narratives.

Sign: #debate  

2. Curmudgeonly intelligence #me
Intelligence residing completely inside gnarly, fortified individual ken.

Sign: #discussion  

3. Collaborative intelligence #we  
Intelligence residing mostly inside practices and rituals scaffolding organizing.

Sign: #conversation  

4. Convivial intelligence #me  
Intelligence co-evolving with semiosphere slingshots, through eigenwelts, mitwelts and umwelts.

Sign: #dialogue  

Then there's also an ongoing dynamic alignment between Me and We, a synthesis out of the above four, a biosemiosis writ social and cultural, if you will.

The important part here is not so much agreeing on perfect definitions, but rather rediscovering the tertium datur, how our various individual and collective intelligences, provides creative tension, out of which

#trustflow

Obviously also transactions out of the dance between me and we, but I'm rather looking at figuring out a different frame, where our transactions form a subset of trustflow - which means a different definition of networks, as if already both webs of value and

#valuewebs

Boundary conditions
resonance, reflexivity, resilience, reach, resonance

For all those of a primarily individual persuasion, the boundary condition of choice, for eg annealing their cognition, is resilience.

For others of a more collective orientation, the preferred boundary condition, the fifty nuances of umwelt so to speak, is resonance.

Which means that

reach

is when individual intelligence is received favourably by the collective, and

reflexivity

is when individual intelligence has grown vulnerable, strong, receptive and wise enough, to receive and remain resonant with, the collective.

"In a network, in order for you to reach heaven, your roots need to stretch all the way down to your pinky toes."
@johnkellden

Further reading on intelligence and cognition:

Towards a global brain
The following methods of distributed information processing should ideally all be integrated:
• aggregation of diverse opinions into a collective estimate
• communication via social networks based on trust or acquaintance  
• meme propagation based on the degree of “interestingness” of the message
• division of labor and coordination between the differently skilled specialists
• external memories that facilitate collaborative knowledge improvement via stigmergy

21C, episode 17: Trust

"In a network, the strategic outcome is trustflow."

"Problems are tough because they are complex in three ways. They are dynamically complex, which means that cause and effect are far apart in space and time, and so are hard to grasp from firsthand experience. They are generatively complex, which means that they are unfolding in unfamiliar and unpredictable ways. And they are socially complex, which means that the people involved see things very differently, and so the problems become polarized and stuck."
-- Adam Kahane, Solving Tough Problems

Win-Win-Win
The Optimal Strategy Is Doing Things With Win-Win-Win Outcomes
1. Share your unique story
2. Carve out your unique niche
3. Be a servant leader in your ecosystem

If this doesn't feel like going out on a limb, or navigating outside your comfort zone, you're not trying hard enough.

Now for the exam questions:
1. Are you trustworthy?
2. Do the others in your ecosystem give a damn?
3. Are you boring?
4. Is your story nourishing? Is it energizing?
5. Are you contributing to and evolving the shared interest graph?
6. Is your story making a difference to others?
7. Are you helping others make sense of things?
8. Is your story helping others make sense of you?
9. Are you using the available tools according to your own strategies,
or are the tools using you, turning you into a mechanical turk?
10. The perfect ten doesn't exist. Your perfect exam question, is the one that turns you into a more youer you, one that will have your grandchildren tell tall tales about you.

Integrity Trumps Greed
Do you make sense in a world that doesn't? The rest is simple - unlearning your old useless captive eyeballs habits and metrics coupled with hard work regaining trust and respect from cynical and jaded customers. First you need to unlearn and let go of your cynical and jaded self. Hard work, and more than well worth it.

Trustflow: Do's and Dont's
"Quit putting a godamn dollar sign on every fucking thing on this planet."
-- Bill Hicks

Between Curmudgeon and A-hole
Although I personally love Bill Hicks, I do realize that if I set my Integrity phaser on full blast, I will find myself in a very small niche, as a result from killing most of my loyal minions. Would make it a wee bit difficult to be a servant leader, if so.

Don't sell yourself short
If I give my integrity away, if I sell myself short, if I put a dollar sign on everything and everyone on the planet, I end up being an entitled a-hole. Thankfully, there's this thing called true friends, who usually can be relied upon, telling us when we're at risk.

My Rule of Thumb? Live and Let Live
I can happily coexist with a whole range of diverse creatures in my ecosystem. I only have trouble with the 500 narcissist, entitled plutocrat sorry ass excuses for humans, that are right now hell-bent on robbing everyone else blind. They are fucking things up, and we need to keep them shortlisted for mandatory healing. All others, all 7bn of us, and in the future all 9bn of us if we make it, are fine.

The Mindset
Zen and the Art of Unconditional Positive Regard Capability Building.

The Pull and the Outcome: In Preparation For Trustflow
Catalyzing trustflow. Augmenting graph traversal. A more convivial way of getting from A to B, navigating the tertium datur between me and we.

What can be done
Creating 21C Media, through combining collective intelligence, collaborative sensemaking and trustflow inside thriving digital communities with sets of digital tools, digital literacies, out of which crowdsourced products and services:

#CaaS  
Basically #CaaS  Communtiy as a Service. The core game/value/business "engine" is the collective intelligence leverage of the living dynamic balance between

Gameboard: 2x2
1. Why: (re)discovery of evolutionary purpose. Avoid any which package-deal that interferes with your own true why.
2. What: annealing of essential character. This follows from your honest grappling with the previous point. Usually includes some unlearning, some letting go, some birth pangs, some pain related to awakening to your own self.
3. How: writing ourselves thriving, enacting convivial umwelten. Writing here includes the full biosemiosis play. The how is well catered for by consultants, facilitors, change agents, marketers, coaches, healers, shamans, psychiatrists, social workers, doctors and all other helpful people you encounter on your path. Skipping the first two points and starting with How, ensures that you will remain longer in confusion, or as Robert Musil describes it in "The Man Without Qualities".
4. Whereto: networks, tribes, ecosystems, valuewebs, worldviews, places, communities, multiverses - take your pick - given your own unique semiosphere slingshot - out of your own unfolding storyline, given the resultant momentum and vector, out of how you resolve the three previous inquiries.

Cards
To be placed on the gameboard, so as to form patterns. Ask me about cards:   +John Kellden 

Play
How you
-  Identify the patterns that helps you with what synthesis is important for you.
-  Translate these patterns, make them align with your own unique set of patterns.
-  Observe how using these new patterns improves or not, your ability to perform, to serve.
-  Abstract meaning, building on the three previous (please note that the first two, Identify & Translate, often run as sets of subconscious patternings and patterns, often triggered again and again by resonance between internal stuff and external events)
-  Apply yourself and your uniqueness to the world, in order to make some kind of significant, meaningful, lasting dent in the universe.
-  Evaluate, learn, anchor your experience and witness - out of which strategic reflexivity. Which makes you good to go for another round of

identify, translate, observe, abstract, apply, evaluate

21C, episode 14: Finding the Others

"In a network, the core task is to find the others."
@johnkellden

Welcome to the Transition
We were human before we were capitalists. We were endowed with essential character and evolutionary purpose before we read Musil, before we got temporarily lost traversing the Waste Land.

We need to find slightly new, slightly different dynamics inbetween ourselves, dynamics coevolving with existing qualities like social cohesion, thrivability, sustainability, trust, cooperation, collaboration, authenticity, vulnerability, inclusion, generativity - the dynamic coevolving itself the resilience, the play, the process.

Story, Play, Align, Garden & Transform
One possible different dynamic, a different generative sequence I'd like to suggest is five-fold:

Story, Play, Align, Garden & Transform

One of the values which underlies the dynamic is, it helps realign ourselves with Kairos, cyclic, spiral time. With storytelling. With you rediscovering your own story and how it works well with others.

You're Busy: You have been eaten alive by Chronos

Have you been uberified yet? Downsized? Redundant? Surplus to requirements?

Chronos, chronological time has been mostly gobbled up by the Machine. For me, this means that it is not possible to return to something "better", we need to return to something different, a different flow of time, where each step, each small act, implies its own unfolding, its own generativity.

Renewal, Contentment, Denial, Confusion & Renewal
Needless to say, this is new, alien and can be experienced as excruciatingly difficult. Yet to me, having a glimpse of this difference that would make a difference, is one of the reasons why I'm unreasonably optimistic. Your denial, your confusion, is part, parcel and parsing of your participation in something larger, different, more inspiring, catalyzing a more youer you.

Protocols for the People
The outcome, the deliverable of this different dynamic is protocols for the people and structures that serves. I'm at your service, offering Cards, Facilitation, Online Communities as steps along the way.

21C, episode 13: Net Work

"In a network, mind is simultaneously, local, enacted and digital, distributed."
@johnkellden

21C, episode 13: In A Network

"In a network, mind is simultaneously emergent and telic."
@johnkellden

Neuroscientists assume that these mental powers somehow emerge from the electrical signaling of neurons — the circuitry of the brain. But no one has come close to explaining how that occurs.
That, Dr. Nagel proposes, might require another revolution: showing that mind, along with matter and energy, is “a fundamental principle of nature” — and that we live in a universe primed “to generate beings capable of comprehending it.”
Rather than being a blind series of random mutations and adaptations, evolution would have a direction, maybe even a purpose.

Understand
Emphasizing ground, allows for a design by emergence and an emergence by design: an unfolding, negentropic storyline.

Comprehend
Emphasizing figure, is when we make decisions, out of which we move, where we more and more become essential characters in our own movie.

Thus:

"In a network, choice is perception and perception is choice."

"Behavior of wholes unpredicted by behavior of parts."

I will add slightly tweaked definitions here below (based on a slightly different grid) towards providing a bit of a wiggle room, between the old, increasingly obsolete coordinate systems, and the emerging 21C Topologies in which we will be better able to live, move and have our being.

The yellow tent in the below image, is exactly as cramped, and/or exactly as roomy and accomodating for up til 9 bn people, as our imagineering would have it.

The generative sequence:

behavior, imagineering, will(skillful, mindful), attention(fluid, discerning), behavior(adapt, exapt, adopt), performance(imagineering)

This movement can be mapped through a 2x2 (game)board.

All this is great fun to enact whilst immersed in an adventure, starting from a Base Camp, being part of a Team that successfully achieves a trek and a climb, arriving at the next tent, at C1.

Such an enaction is always and already an enaction of a different topology, a gridwalking.___21C, episode 10: Movement

21C, episode 8: Conversation Community

"In a network, some thinks make time."
@johnkellden

The Conversation Community is not a traditional online community, nor a typical Google+ Community. It has always been an ongoing Community Intelligence Interactive Cartography - a 21C Roadmapping.

"In a network, any sufficiently advanced content is indistinguishable from interactive, participatory sensemaking."
@johnkellden

We made it? What happened? We happened
It's just that we've yet to cocreate a simple enough 21C Folksonomy, which means that there isn't a legend for the 21C Roadmap yet. The topic is there though. All the other topics with 21C in their titles, can be seen as a wireframe of an Interactive, Participatory Sensemaking.

How to traverse the map, as well as how to ongoingly realign between map and territory, that part we've already got:

add considered, considerate comments on other people's posts

This is the one and only rule in the Conversation Community - All other rules can be derived from the generativity implied in our intention when posting and commenting and our holding space enabling our engaging with others.

scenius = social field x generativity x pulse

Scenius applied: Audience turned cocreators of value
Scenius is here defined as both the performing vector of collective intelligence, as well as the constellation of group genius, in service to an audience.
Each week, the community intelligence is hard at work through the social field nurtured by the posts we share and the comments we gift, and it is also very noticeable when I select and curate members posts into the Monday Magazine.
( now renamed as the 21C Transition Magazine https://goo.gl/hQUJJ5 ).

21C Multipass
Each weekly magazine, in G+, in FB, in Medium..., can be seen as a collective intelligence and community intelligence access card. A Scenius Library card, if you will.

Why are we participating in people-centric networks?

Why do we need a multipass? Why are we searching, sharing, curating,  engaging in networks? I believe one of the reasons is, we're developing a network-centric language, including a 21C glossary.

21C Glossary
Once we have a glossary, a folksonomy, and a sufficiently shared and shareable understanding, we will be able to

-  save time
-  make time
-  sculpt spacetime

Saving the world wild web one catgif at a time
We will also begin to coordinate our efforts, turning the networks into valuewebs, predicated on knowledge flows, above and beyond, yet also including, data aggregation and content marketing.

21C Renga: A Generative Sequence of Adjacent Possibles
The Conversation Community started in Nov 2012 with a small group of people in Google+. In Feb 2015, it had grown to more than a thousand members and spawned an adjacent possible, a Conversation Community in Facebook. These two places are waystations, towards us happening an ecosystem of distributed platforms.

One Hour Done Well
The only thing you need to do when it comes to learning, is rewarding yourself when you've done one hour of something, and done it well.

How would I know?
How would you know? How would you know you are performing a generative assessment and review?

1. You've added one infinitesimally small drop of blood to your work - you've poured meraki into it.
2. You've experienced discomfort, from those behaviors you've kept that no longer serves.
3. You've experienced confusion when letting go of your attachment to the underlying values, beliefs that reinforce your obsolete behavior.
4. You've experienced a beginning buzz and rush and exhilaration and awe - you are beginning to feel excitement about your own potential, unfolding.
5. You've shared select parts of your process with others.

Ten Thousand Hours
Trust your intuition AND your rational discernment. Your intuition provides your next step on your path, and your discernment brings virtue. Combining them, your own flow, your own Tao. It is always there in the here and now - it's just that we can never properly name it in advance, and we can only understand it in retrospect.

Pronoid Conspiracy
The Universe, via her Proxy, Gaia, loves you. Since we are considerably much smaller and more fragile - we need to go slowly, allowing Gaia to court us for at least ten thousand hours, until we have figured out who we are and what we are doing here.

Seven Years Worth of Gifts
The Pronoid Conspiracy includes two gifts:

-  a voucher to be redeemed by giving it your best, your all - meraki

-  an overnight success, after seven years of grit

Fifty Shades of Learning
At least. Choose your own modalities wisely:

formal, informal, traditional, connectivist, academic, social, hierarchical, network, planned, situational...

Happiness researchers find that upwards of half of someone’s happiness is built in moments of anticipation and remembering. Happiness is as much about how we look forward to and look back on an event as it is about the event itself."

"As Lakoff has pointed out, these people are trying to do the right thing but they are completely failing to apply a frames analysis. A frame is a mental structure through which you understand an issue. Instead of framing the issue with our own values and describing and projecting our values – which is the only thing in the medium- to long-term that ever works – we are abandoning them and adopting instead the values of the people who are wrecking the environment. How could there be any long-term outcome other than more destruction?"

The other four is for anyone who'd like to engage more, and achieve a better, slightly different, slightly more encouraging return on engagement.

Engagement and Return on Engagement

gather, diverge, emerge, converge, produce

Instantiated, implemented right in the middle of a collaborative, cocreative flow, eg in a GitHub, PenFlip, Google Doc Collaborative Sensemaking workflow:

Online Community: Gather - Post and Comment
Fork: Diverge - Discover meaningful connectivity
Metalogue: Emerge - Hold space for trustflow, for evolution of conversation
Merge: Converge - Discern cocreation of value
Google Doc Prototyping: Produce - 21C Mixtapes and lots of other things

Trustflow
The more trustflow we develop between ourselves, the more trust that emerges out of our conversations, out of our complex responsive processes, the easier it'll become to cocreate value and do great things together.

Social Learning
A living dynamic balance between engagement and return on engagement. Too much engagement without any return, turns participants into small insular groupthink tribes. Too much return on engagement without sufficient engagement, turns participants into social media marketers.

Value
Why do I emphasize the comments to the point of making it THE mandatory task in the Conversation Community?

Source of Value: Intention
The intention we're holding a fraction of a second before adding a comment, is the source of eighty percent of the value in the whole community.

Levelling Up
By becoming increasingly aware of our own intentions, it is perfectly possible to get more out of all our social, digital interaction, through understanding the following levels outlined above.

Win-win-win: Convivial OODA-loops
There's a recursion quality to all the five levels as well. It is possible to think of them as if a Convivial OODA-loop.

A traditional OODA-loop: Observe, Orient, Decide & Act, was originally conceived as a Win/Loose approach - a dogfight between combat airplanes.

A convivial OODA-loop is very similar, yet with a focus on a #winwinwin  outcome:

Add: Enact
Discover: Perceive, Observe
Develop: Sensemake, Orient
Discern: Wayfind, Decide
Design: Synthesize, Produce, Act

It's an OODA-loop, with an added Enaction context. If what you add is sufficiently enactive, it serves as stigmergy, a sign, cue, catalyst, part of our collective mapping, part of our shared and shareable understanding, upon which others then can add and build further, shoulders of giants.
