Mick Fealty14,167*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 Kellden32,542In 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.

Mick Fealty14,167So, 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

Further on context and as a meta-comment on the themes I'm exploring through my posts, here in the CCG+ and in CCFB:

1. 21C Transition
Evolution and how we as evolutionary agents can grow increasingly capable stewarding autopoietic shift, by design rather than by default.

2. Meaning-moving-with
How it is possible to express ourselves through spoken and written words and listen generatively, until trust, until movement.

Life in the Village, episode 378: Myanmarkini

L’ordonnance du Conseil d’Etat précise que « l’arrêté litigieux a ainsi porté une atteinte grave et manifestement illégale aux libertés fondamentales que sont la liberté d’aller et venir, la liberté de conscience et la liberté personnelle. »


Il aura fallu attendre / atteindre le conseil d'État, avant que la raison se fasse enfin entendre?

Pour défendre nos valeurs, contre ceux qui détournent le mot "valeurs" pour simplement dissimuler leur racisme…

Pour rejeter la logique stupide qui consiste à empêcher les victimes du racisme/sexisme de sortir, au nom de les protéger contre le racisme/sexisme —une logique à l'envers qui justifie aussi d'enfermer les femmes pour les protéger des prédateurs, de blâmer les victimes de violence par leur tenues trop courtes, etc. Il faut condamner le raciste/sexiste/agresseur, pour trouble à l'ordre social, pas sa victime!


Et notre premier ministre (tout comme notre président précédent, candidat à la prochaine présidentielle???), supposé de gauche, trouvait que l'arrêté était acceptable?
Après l'état d'urgence qui a plus servi à arrêter les militants écologiques lors de la COP21 que les terroristes, il ne nous en ratera pas une seule, celui-là!
Tout comme le pire président que la Ve République ait connu, bien sûr (et qui pense quand même avoir des chances d'être réélu???).

Pour combattre le terrorisme, focalisons-nous sur la police des mœurs et du vestimentaire? Suivons l'exemple de l'Iran? Le ridicule ne tue pas.___Life in the Village, episode 378: Myanmarkini

Life in the Village, episode 373: Bourbon-Roasted Peach Cheesecake

Because Friday. Actually, because no reason at all. There simply cannot be too much Bourbon-Roasted Peach Cheesecake in the world.

Also, it might provide the perfect excuse to make yet another cup of coffee. If you don't happen to have a Bourbon-Roasted Peach Cheesecake lying around, or brought to you by your friendly neighbour, then - no worries - here's a permission slip from me:

Go make yet another cup of coffe anyway - Bourbon-Roasted Peach Cheesecake - or not.

With the advent of societies and culture and civilization (three contested concepts, yet also without which all of us would possibly be worse off) individual intelligence is necessary, yet not sufficient.

With the recent adapt, exapt, adopt of digital networks - this is accelerating.

Curiously, most human beings still pretend as if, and exhibit behaviors, heuristics, umwelten, life trajectories, as if individual separate intelligence remain a viable option. It almost always isn't.

This denial of networks, requires a great deal of effort - an investment of time and attention and situational awareness that could be spent much more meaningfully, in different ways.

A bit simplified - a co-evolving nested triple thread helix, is the natural state of our beingness and our becomingness:

Nodes
1. Semiosphere and Biosphere trajectories:

synthesis, selfhood, service

synthesis: inhale, selfhood: here and now presence, service: exhale

Edges
2. Metalogue: conversational intelligence, conversational presencing, situational leadership dialogue

Holons & Toroids
3. Spacetime: events including contrived contingencies, narratives, stories

Which means that an infinite game narrative, is in an ongoing process of dynamic narrative alignment with an even more integral narrative, one holon level up, and each of these lower level holons, are spiralling tracings on the larger holon.

By diagramming a different path, by taking a U-turn less climbed and more immersive, we turn our departure more immersive and our summit more enactive.

All the diagramming tools: the 2x2's the integral frameworks, the U-turn diagrams, the cynefin quadrantish models and many other diagrams - are us (human sensemakers) trying to

perceive, reorient, pattern and enact

Immersion is eventually, the intentional choosing of and embracing, the accepting of the illusionary nature of any which static demarcations of models, of model boundaries, of model definitions, of even the dichotomies between nodes, edges and holons themselves.

Our very identities as seemingly separate nodes, will then give way for a more fluid, flowing experience - of which enaction, immersion, sensemaking, expeditions, treks, tracings following along a diagram - are temporary, yet intensely meaningful subsets.

These fluid nodes and flowing edges will then increasingly grow in resonance, reflexivity, resilience, reach, resonance so as to become what they always were, beyond yet including any which modelling made sense at the time:

recursion.

Biosemiosis codes are co-extensive with recursion and flow. With eg a set of around seventy biosemiosis codes we can engage in pathfinding, engage in meta-modelling exercises, a matrix of, a combination of:

recursion and flow
(notice how this is three words)

In short, it is a better language than english. English requires us to remain too attached to denial and confusion and only then, master its uses. But wait - there's hope! With an additional, different vantage point, we can still use english in good, meaningful ways, including building on useful words, like

scenius, serendipity, immersion, climb, summit, there and back again, base camp, sagarmatha, sagarmatha café,...

and even tweak some of them, eg from

scenius to sceenius

Smallest necessary changes making for optimal difference
These differences are possible to map onto a semiosphere, a gridweaving, a roadmapping.

Contextual Intelligence consists of seven parts
1. Models, including theories, frameworks, diagrams
2. Particpatory sensemaking, usually including using a combination of models
3. Context, default, definitional, design, imagined, operational, situational, behavioral
4. Forces and building blocks, eg episodes making up stories, stories making up narratives, narratives making up clearings in the forest in real and virtuereal ecosystems
5. Solutions
6. Problems
7. Wickedness, recursion & flow
The seventh set includes emergent properties, they emerge inbetween and around (sometimes at invisible and/or oblique angles) relative to the other six.

All types of wicked problems can be solved in fairly simple ways, by rediscovering the relative lack of recursion and flow, between the constituent parts, eg between problems and models, between ecosystems and maps.

Wickedness is the relative absence of recursion and flow.

Flow
Lack of flow is almost invariably the rigid, ritualistic attachment to separate identities as if static. This is erroneous. A causal fallacy, analogous with a whole set of cognitive fallacies and relational, emotional fallacies.

Recursion
Lack of recursion, is the limited and limited belief, that there is nothing outside of our significant small part of the world - our eigenwelt, our umwelt - as if looking at the beginning of a forest, noticing the first couple of rows of trees, understanding that there is a forest there, yet denying the existence of the other trees.

What do YOU think?

Now, simpler still.
When the artist Rauschenberg presents a picture, he is well aware that the picture, as a piece of art, as a perceptual artifact, is a model, a slice of reality. Yet, he also manages to both keep himself from offering THE definite interpretation, thus escaping his own attachment, AND he also makes every effort, to have the artifact include so much generativity, that all others (us, viewing) will feel as if we are experiencing something next to, something beside, an adjacent possible - as if we almost could hear Robert whisper in our enactive, immersive ear:

"Well, what do YOU think?"

The weird and wonderful and wanderfull and wunderkammerful thing with us humans, whenever we go to see pictures on an exhibition, whenever we trace a meaningful trajectory - we almost invariably include a near default adjacent possible.

Right after we've eg watched Rauschenbergs paintings and listened to his metalogue: we go have a cup of coffee. Some daring enactivistas, even go for the ultimate summit - sharing a word or two with strangers turned friends, sharing a story and a cinnamon bun.

Amply replenished, onwards...

Feynman and Tannu Tuva. Why? Why not?

Now, a dash of Feynman:
Adding nodes, edges, holons & toroids to our understanding our own enacting umwelten and enacting experiences and enacting narratives and enacting immersion and enacting intersubjectivity and enacting awe and enacting meaning and enacting paths and enacting wayfinding and enacting [insert your own fave desire nature transformation here] and enacting separate identity and enacting a slightly more enactive separate identity
adds to the value, to our joy of perception.

This can be expressed as a generative sequence:

and, add

Don't ever be fooled by the seeming simplicity of this two word sequence, it's just a happy quirk inherent in the english language. It's me performing biosemiosis magic, on the english language, to illustrate how english can be, at times, useful, even generative.
If we'd like a few generative definitions:

Enaction
:::and, add:::

Enactivity
:::add, and:::

Notice what happens in your mind when you reflect, as simply, as embodied as possible, on the two sequences...

I realize this can be bewildering.
If it feels to weird, return for a while to a slightly more storied, more languaging, climbing, transcendent virtuereal realm:

A tracing, a climb as a generative sequence
biosemiosis code, enaction, biosemiosis code, enaction, biosemiosis code, enaction, biosemiosis code

Or, the more common:

code, execution of code, code...

And, one of the many possible instantiations
(experienced, enacted climbs)
- epistemization (provisional ontologies)
- enaction
- language
- enaction
- immersion
- enaction
- episodes
- enaction
- enkinaesthesia
- enaction
- exhibition (pausing for a sensing/presencing moment, taking it all in)
- enaction
- fold (inner folding of beauty, external, virtuereal unfolding of storyline)
- enaction
- epistemization (knowledging, (growth of) understanding)

Dynamic Narrative Alignment
What remains to be done, among us Enactivists, among us Learning Journey Instigators, as well as proceeding from us, extending to all other participants, partners, climbers, clients and customers, is to hold space for (re)alignment of rhythm, as hinted at with the above sequence.

We drummed the road more enactive - and that made all the difference.
We need the near inaudible drumming of a slightly different, a slightly better, a slightly more inspiring beat, a different drum, a different rhythm.

Rhythm Is An Enactor
This is one of the reasons I'm keen developing further, out of eg a couple of beginning fieldtested journeys,  tunes and soundscapes - how they might be resonant with eg one of +Ron Scroggin 's ambient grid-sound-story-scape.

:::Rohan "woof":::

All together now

Shooting a movie
...and...action!...

Instigating scenius
...and...enaction!...

Solaris? Yes, Solaris...
Tarkovsky is an exception. There's enactivity in almost every frame he offers, weaving around and between the action. cf the sequence I just outlined...___

Zen of Small Tasks: Adapt, axapt, adopt

You know how sometimes you become aware that someone or something has been listening and an opportunity just flies in out of nowhere and is now here? It's usually a shocker, right? You don't know whether you are getting pulled, pushed, spiraled or spun.

It feels like you are catapulted into chaos tumbling as you manage the internal mayhem pondering the possibility being presented... after you've said, 'Yes!' It's scary spooky cool and weird, huh? Like a bunch of your personal affirmations show up simultaneously.

Remember those butterflies that presenters always say they have right before opening their mouths, right? ... on steroids. I get the sense y'all are hip and maybe find yourselves in a similar place, hopefully and perhaps often, depending on your natural flow.

I keep thinking there is an organic experience just begging to take form in and through all of us. I'm often unsure of the questions that unlock the answers to the 'how?' it is supposed to unfold and how I can better participate and share the discoveries we make.

It seems to be a path to understanding what 'oneness,' or 'harmony among people and planet' might look like eventually. Science and Spiritual assertions coalesce in that place, I suspect.

Anywho, just tossing an electron into the thoughtmosphere. I appreciate your eyes and time. It is always a pleasure to serve treasure. Please feel free to reflect openly. I'd like that. :) I may not have time to respond for a bit. I'll be traveling for the next week.___Zen of Small Tasks: Adapt, axapt, adopt

Life in the Village, episode 371: The Village Wall

"In the lords year of 2016, there was a prominent peddler of fear. Armed with spraytan and a bright orange hairpiece, he walked among the villagers and whispered to them, all their secret fears."
@johnkellden    

The Other Side of Fear

Fear has a unique binary quality, it can hold us back or push us forward with equal measure, which we let it do is entirely our choice.

Emotions inform our actions, but more than that they form the foundation of our personality both as how we interpret ourselves and how we are interpreted by others.

We use emotions in a suprising number of ways, intelligence in the absence of emotions is just an algorithm, a mathematical represention of a reduction of sensory input into quantifiable terms.

Emotions are so intrinsic to the human experience it's easy to miss the fact that they form a foundational cornerstone of our ability to utilize model free methodology to generate and store working world models.

Emotions are what we are trying to illicit when we write or sing or talk or dance, emotions are the why when the reason isn't self evident.

It can crush us under the weight of doubt and uncertainty, or propel us to take action we once had never thought possible both good and bad. The trick is to recognize the difference between when we it is either the wall or the wind, and to realize one can easily become the other if we let it...

"The space of located things is familiar. In our Western culture it has seemed to be the original reality, what is “really” there. To exist has meant to fill space in some location.

The space of locations is a spectator's space. It is perceived but then the bodily process of perceiving is dropped out, so that only the perceived things seem independently real. If that were so, there would also already be the space between them. But the process of perceiving is what is generating the perceptions!
They are wrongly considered to exist by themselves."

Though I knew she was sleeping.

Beauty, love, trust & quaternions, episode 4: Organizing

"In a network, we organize informed by dynamic story/narrative (re)alignment."
@johnkellden 

"Established institutions have been reorganizing as long as they've been organized. As circumstances change, the shape and makeup of the workforce must be adapted accordingly. Today’s most disruptive organizations however, are beginning to organize around a new pattern: the ability to evolve in real time."
-- Aaron Dignan   https://goo.gl/c5EoqB

My only  tweak of that quote, would be real time. Real time is a function of four variables:
- virtuereality, Prometheus
- embodied reality, Epimetheus, memory, including and co-evolving with, embodied cognition
- experience, Kairos and
- time as per measured by Chronos

Remodelling towards generativity

Generative listening
- non-systems thinking - usually collective hierarchy and individual gaming the hierarchy
- systems thinking - usually an intranet coupled with related other digitally augmented, augmenting tools and apps and dashboards
- symmathesy - this doesn't exist yet - it is characterised by individuals and teams and organizing - being informed by mutuality and learning - and the synthesis out of mutual learning, autopoiesis and autopoietic shift, informing the existing non-systems and systems existing practices, processes, structures and cultures.

The strategic outcome of generative listening, is

story

Generative reading
In a network, curation of unstructured content, content remaining less than optimal through remaining too attached to existing cultural practices, can be curated, via human curation(heuristics) and/or machine curation(algorithms).

Nested with generative reading, is the ongoing strategic outcome:

tasks

Generative review
This is closely related to evolution of conversation. (I've covered this elsewhere).

The strategic outcome of generative review is

dynamic story/narrative (re)alignment

These three approaches establishes and evolves a living boundary "around" a nxn grid.

Participatory practices can then be used to continously iterate and improve and innovate the context, the border around the nxn grid/board/gameboard.

Obviously also individual practices including Bullet Journals, Workflowy, GTD, PKM, as an ongoing interaction between Individual knowledge work and team/group/org knowledge flows.

Think a larger participatory sensemaking circle, eg in the middle of a 2x2 grid, around which a center circle, many smaller PKM circles. The image I get here is one of tiny beads making up the border between the center circle GKM and the quadrants.

Patterning towards a Dynamic Knowledge Repository

Part, parcel and parsing of the remodelling turned into both a (set of) patterns and an improved strategic reflexivity, including an improved patterning capability.

1. Model
Eg the existing 2x2 as a model.

2. Solution
Desired(meraki, culture), feasible(tools, literacy), viable(path, fitness)

3. Context
Non-system, system, symmathesy

4. Play
Participatory sensemaking

5. Problem space
Wicked problems and stopping rules, including when the remodelling is good enough and/or when running out of time or resources.

6. Forces & Building Blocks
Code, prototyping, implementation

7. Patterning
This is usually not done. Instead, there is a production of intranet manuals (that no-one ever reads) project reports(that no-one even can be paid to read) and/or grafts onto the existing culture and practices (that sometimes takes and sometimes are rejected).

However, if the patterning results in a pattern language, pattern matched well enough with existing patterns and the new and/or different patterns are understood well enough by the stakeholders, a cultural transformation can take place.

The learning journey, the climb to a higher sensemaking plateau - then leads to the formation and adopting of - new models. And so on and so forth.

"In a network, the best place to store knowledge is in other people."
@johnkellden    

Once knowledge is stored, once it is enacted into an integral, evolving part of ourcellves - it can be recalled, put to good use, enacting convivial events and further developed, in a context of mutuality, autopoiesis and learning.

"In a network, patterning that turns spacetime into a quality virtuereal place."
@johnkellden  

Story
In a digital platform, the part of our story that benefits us and others by sharing, needs to be considered in terms of resonance, reflexivity, resilience and reach. Ie, if you choose wisely what you share, you will be able to augment four circles:

concern, influence, confluence and experience

Tasks
A structured approach, (digital here offers a multitude of options, anything from eg bullet journals to a whole ecosystem of apps) allows you to turn your tasks into an increasingly sophisticated body of knowledge.

“Boundary objects are objects which are both plastic enough to adapt to local needs and the constraints of the several parties employing them, yet robust enough to maintain a common identity across sites.”
-- Susan Leigh Star and James Griesemer  http://goo.gl/qGrrFt

Review
Once you have your digital story and a beginning structure through which to develop your tasks, you can then perform review. My own preferred approach, is qualitative and generative - augmented by pattern languages. Others prefer big data, yet others prefer outsourcing this part to consultants and/or seo/platform/marketing metrics and services. However we slice and dice our ongoing review, it eventually needs to provide feedback "back" to both Tasks and Story.

Good Afternoon All Egon Schiele Aficionados

12 June 1890, #onthisday the expressionist painter Egon Schiele was born in Tulln in Austria.

The ground was prepared for a new generation of artists who took it personal and transformed their own experience and surroundings into works of art like the Impressionists did a generation before. Admittedly, under rather different auspices. It was the next step beyond the processing of classical and historical allegories with an erotic note, ensembles still recognisable and intelligible by the public, into something more individual, far less accessible. It was the world of “Wiener Moderne”, the Viennese Modern Age, a Golden Age, or at least a gilded one, with gold foil covering decay and Angst and the artistic sublimation of life’s great disappointments. A world counteracted by the establishment with well understood Wagnerianisms, misunderstood Nietzsche, too bright uniforms and sabre rattling. A world of coffeehouse literati and neuritic novels, “Nervenroman”, Hofmannsthal, Schnitzler, Trakl at the Café Griensteidl and Café Central, the music of Bruckner and Mahler, the overripe flowers of Art Nouveau with Klimt as its somewhat unsavoury high priest and Sigmund the Great and his students sleuthing the psychic life with a metaphoric magnifying glass. The world of Egon Schiele, that was about to explode in the Great War and the catastrophe of the 20th century.

But read more on:

http://wunderkammertales.blogspot.de/2015/01/art-cannot-be-modern-art-is.html

Depicted below is Egon Schiele’s: "Tod und Mädchen" (Death and the Maiden, 1915)

3. Biosemiotics & Becoming
A new theme, exploring what codes and patterns are to be enacted and found in our quest for embodied meaning.

4. Automatic for the People
Towards econormalisation dispositions. Have written extensively on this theme in other digital places, will move select parts over here as time and algorithms permits.

5. Zen of Small Tasks
A fairly sizeable set of existing posts.

6. Semiosphere Slingshots
Trust, trajectories, access, attract, achieve. This one might have to wait for a while, until I understand a bit more how to present it.

7. Me, We, Happy
The Venn intersect between Alva Noë and Eudaimonia. I might be able to cram in 2x2 and 3x3 Card Session boards here as well.

8. Our Future Societies
Paths through our 21C Waste Land. Quite a few existing posts here as well.

9. Gaia & Ourcellves
The only mandatory 21C word, is humus.

10. Algorithms & Commons
Will write more posts in this theme later this year.

11. Beauty, Love, Trust & Quaternions
Forces, models, maps, legends, elements, patterns, building blocks. How concrete, real, virtual, virtuereal and abstract objects (3D and others) move through various timeflows(Kairos, Chronos).

Eleven themes for now. There will eventually form around two hundred patterns in each of the themes, corresponding more or less with resonant concepts in a glossary.

I will add links to the themed posts in this comment thread.

@johnkellden    CCFB   https://goo.gl/hhwl1f

The societal, cultural, organizing bodies and vessels through which this can be realized, can be returned to health via individual, team and collective agency focussed on transforming our thinking, relating and acting things through together. This return to healthy and wholesome societal and cultural rhythms and newfound resonances, can be seen as an ongoing bundle of nested interdependent generative sequences, where convergence(discussion, analysis, zooming in, detail) weaving together with divergence(dialogue, synthesis, zooming out, gestalt) forms new narratives in which 21C Storytelling together with a whole ecosystem of approaches will proliferate and produce the necessary boundary conditions:

reach, resonance, reflexivity, response-ability & reach

Applied, a new set of boundary objects, ontologies, glossaries, making for
- attention turning into awareness
- will turning into flow
- performance turning into intelligence, into wisdom
- behavior turning into imagination, into conviviality
- attention returning to its source: our here and now

Maps, models, cards, diagrams and theories all play an important part in catalyzing, providing a place for and developing - shared and shareable understanding.

This shareable understanding can then, augmented by appropriate technologies (language, conversation, story, web) turn into
- participatory sensemaking, playfulness dispositions & participatory practices
- contexts of mutuality and learning
- boundary objects co-evolving with work and play, with building blocks and forces
- solution spaces increasingly relevant and meaningful to
- problem domains, from which
new questions forms, further informing slightly new, different, better maps, models, cards, diagrams and theories.

How? I'm glad you asked:
- story
- tasks
- review

The timeflows through the above outlined generative sequences, a weaving together of Kairos(story) and Chronos(project) - sometimes linear, sometimes non-linear - at times, meaningful events when we make good things happen - all the time realizing some thinks take time and some other thinks make time. Time to play.

"Hold every hour in your grasp. Lay hold of today's task, and you will not need to depend so much upon tomorrow's. While we are postponing, life speeds by. Nothing, Lucilius, is ours, except time."
-- Lucius Annaeus Seneca     http://goo.gl/Hh1zwf

Kairos
The right or opportune moment. The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While the former refers to chronological or sequential time, the latter signifies a time between, a moment of indeterminate time in which something special happens. What the special something is depends on who is enacting what unfolding storyline, a human evolutionary trajectory traveller, embracing quaternions like Walt Whitman embraced the song of the phoebe-bird.

"In a network, we enact immersive spaces which enact unfolding storylines for us to move through in return."
@johnkellden     

+Joachim Stroh :
Let the story begin...

A clear space (and a Knowledge Expedition) is like a moviemaking project. Even in a precisely planned movie, the final result is unknown. And in some movies the script and filming circumstances are left wide open.

It's a lot of fun being in an enaction space (an immersive collaborative experience like a movie or a KE) and it is also a deep and personally revealing experience.

It's a lot of fun being in an enaction space (an immersive collaborative experience like a movie or a KE) and it is also a deep and personally revealing experience.

Del Close propounded setting up an enaction space, in his work in Second City, the first on-going improvisational theater troupe in the US, from where his teaching has had a vast influence on the "real world" via John Belushi, John Candy, Steven Colbert, Tina Fey, Bill Murray, and scores of other of his students.

Can we now put to rest the idea that imaginary enaction spaces aren't real, and are merely escapes from real-world pressure? It is that very pressure that drives us, we artists enacting Immersive Collaborative Sensemaking Experiences, not merely to escape, but to build a new world.

The difference between our clear space and a movie, or the set of Saturday Night Live, is that we intend for 7 billion people (and counting) to be in the movie.

If we can't get 7 billion right now, let's go for 300,000. That's a short experiential/enactive hop from our current few score or hundreds directly and indirectly connecting with the Immersive Collaborative Sensemaking enaction space.  

Sagarmatha
A metalogue, a meaning-moving-with-dialogue, between
Sagarmatha and John Kellden:

Sagarmatha:
- I sense you brought a new group of people for me to resonate with?

John:
- Yes, yes we did.

Sagarmatha:
- I sense they are exploring, each one, finding out more about how they can best be of service?

John:
- Yes, yes they are. They are among the very best of us.

Sagarmatha:
- I sense you as a group (she didn't say "group" really, she had me see the "group as collective intelligence happening, enacting, unfolding") are having some challenges with timeflow, trustflow and happenflow?

John:
- Yes, we are facing a lot of spacetime constraints, time constraints, presence constraints...

Sagarmatha:
- Would you like to tell me more about this word "constraints"?

John:
- We are moving very quickly through our mortal coils, our loans from Gaia...

Sagarmatha:
- You do know that you and me and everyone else, we are Gaia?

John:
- Yes, as I was saying, we are moving...

Sagarmatha:
- I sense this is a good thing.

John:
- Well, often, when we are moving, we come across obstacles in our path.

Sagarmatha:
- I sense these paths are paths you are moving, walking, climbing, out of your own free will? (again, she didn't use the words "free will", she was saying something closer to "intentional individual individuation inspiration aspect of collective intelligence")

John:
- Yes, yes they are. Oh! Ah, now I see...

Sagarmatha:
- I sense you are climbing really well.

John:
- Yes, I guess we are.

John:
- Thank you Sagarmatha.

Sagarmatha:
- Thank you dear participants, enactivists. Thank you for being here.

By contrast, the genomic language does not have anything like this as an aim. Of course, strictly speaking, it must have nothing as an aim –– genes, and evolutionary processes are blind (so also are cells and organs, but we will come on to them in later chapters) –– but if we take this line then, with even more certainty, the genome is not a book. In order to pursue the book analogy we have at least to ask what it could be said to be a book about. So is it about ‘life’?
Well, I would say no, not really. Crucially, it does not describe
functionality."

And the minor swarms again are swarm-entities, so that we get a hierarchy of swarms. At all levels these swarms are engaged in distributed problem solving based on an infinitely complicated web of semetic interaction patterns which in the end can only be explained through reference to the actual history of the body system, evolution."

Sequences favoring formation of bubbles

"It is believed that DNA has regions where a specific sequence of bases modifies the stiffness of the double helix favouring the formation of bubbles. This causes a break of the weak bonds between the strands showing the transcription and replication enzymes where to start their task."

Spirit: A composer of music, reverberating

"It had been proposed by theoreticians that such DNA bubbles might behave like sound waves, bouncing around in DNA like echoes in a cathedral. However, the current paradigm in biology is that such sound-like dynamics are irrelevant to biological function, as interaction of a biomolecule with the surrounding water will almost certainly destroy any of these effects."

21C: Nodes, Edges and Holons

Nodes, Edges and Holons

"Placemaking co-evolves with imagination, inspiration, interaction, individual agency, inference, information, insights, interdependence, infrastructure and intangible assets."
- +John Kellden 

+Joachim Stroh  :
Briefly returning to the surface after taking a  deeper look at the nodes in a network. They are here defined as individual agents (each with unique roles & talents) or individual functions (with many agents that perform the function). There is a  #networkprotocol  that enables collaborative sensemaking within a node and a Tea House sequence that enables a smooth transition between nodes. H/t +John Kellden  and +Grizwald Grim for this expedition.  The journey to explore Collective Intelligence continues

+Grizwald Grim : 
Within an individual node, the Maslow-vian drives manifest in distinct personas, which is why individual vs. collaborative sensemaking is just a perspective related to how one chooses to define self :)

The body/mind self, the family self, the tribe self, the network self, etc.

+Joachim Stroh  :
Brilliant, individual vs. collaborative sensemaking, two sides of the same coin. 

+John Kellden  :
If we leave Maslow's hierarchy of needs and drives and design a different structure for how we co-evolve, taking a few cues and hints from ecology, biosemiotics and neuroscience - we will have almost a full-fledged methodology for bridging/weaving....

I will return to this thread and add some reflections and possible generative definitions and dynamic frameworks through which some of the potential in the diagram can be operationalized, manifested, turned into effective collective action.

21C Storytelling: Ravenna

Long Weekend Dedicated to Writing
Today I'm reviewing the mindmap for Ravenna: A Mosaic a novel of early Sixth Century Italy. So many power centers both political and ecclesiastical were juggling for position at this time that from time to time I pull back from a specific scene to look at the overview.

Mindmaps are a great way to see the relationships between political powers and character relationships.

If you are creating a story world, a mindmap helps visualize the interrelationships of people (your characters) and the overall view of your story world. I use Freemind http://goo.gl/MtMTo5 because it is quite comprehensive. There are many choices. Just be sure to choose a mindmapping program that works with the way you think.

This weekend I'll be finishing a chapter in the novel as well as working through at least one chapter in the second Argolicus mystery, The Peach Widow.

Keep writing!___21C Storytelling: Ravenna
