Meaning moving with, episode 1: Permission to play"In a network, the miracle of infinite play as a function of evolution, evonetworking, emergence, econormalisation, evolvement, equipotentiality, eudaimonia, economics, ecosystemics, equity, essentialization - is that 7bn human beings going on 9bn can be invited to participate in a diverse set of convivial local economies which co-evolve with distributed networks, forming a planetwide covenant, adapting to our common needs, our assuming stewardship and serving our evolutionary trajectories."

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:
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.https://goo.gl/FRk2sT"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."

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.
