Conversation Community 2016 June 9

"In a network, conversations that mind and matter - and good business - co-evolves with flourishing individuals, teams, circles, communities, regions and societies."
@johnkellden        CCFB    https://goo.gl/izLwjl

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.

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.

The evocation of "faster than we thought" really indicates that we are learning how little we know about adaptive processes - and how much there is to learn. #autopoiesisFTW
In the extremity of the urban environment, natural selection is transforming species in unexpected ways.

Mimetic recursion, ad infinitum
Signals addictive behavior, ad bait 'em

My recommendation:
Don't join 'em, don't fight 'em

Lampoon them with poetry
That's atrocious, ad litem.

These last three days I've been watching politics at its most surreal - literally seeming to come from some totally curious parallel dimension. I consider myself a deeply optimistic person (optimism is the most pragmatic stance and orientation to take in engaging the world ). Optimism is not to be confused with idealism or with utopianism - anyone who has children, gets married, acquires a mortgage, pursues a career - must be fundamentally optimistic - that their choices can lead them to make progress enabling them to make sense of the world as they way-find their way. But politics these days can be very scary - challenging the foundation of optimism.

Here's this week's foragings - curated curiosities - by-for-of the curious and for curious conversations.

Sagarmatha Café, episode 84: Heracleion

"In a network, we unearth hidden treasures. and resurface what was believed long lost."
@johnkellden    

Ozymandias, Percy Bysshe Shelley
http://goo.gl/6KQI1V

"Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read,
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:

A city lost between legend and reality
"Before the foundation of Alexandria in 331 BC, the city knew glorious times as the obligatory port of entry to Egypt for all ships coming from the Greek world. It had also a religious importance because of the temple of Amun, which played an important role in rites associated with dynasty continuity. The city was founded probably around the 8th century BC, underwent diverse natural catastrophes, and finally sunk entirely into the depths of the Mediterranean in the 8th century AD."

I wish summer would last forever - languid late night walks feeling perfect in shorts and t-shirt - at ease in my skin -slow easy living and the world feeling quiet - curious that this should feel so exceptional. Sad. But the world is full of curiosities and here's this week's assemblage of foragings in the digital environment - of-by-for the curious.

As always open for curious conversations.

Murmullo Gris
This knocked my socks off this morning.

‪#‎poema‬ de ‪#‎MercedesMayol‬, fotografias de ‪#‎JuanCarlosHernandez‬ - YouTube ‪#‎poesia‬ ‪#‎fotografia‬

Narración y fotografías: Juan Carlos Hernández ( http://juancarloshernandezphotographe... )

Poema y edición de video:
Mercedes Mayol: ( http://mercedesmayol.blogspot.com )

Música interpretada por Astor Piazzolla y Yo Yo Ma

MURMULLO GRIS

Ahogando con mi pena tu reflejo
Atrapado en este espejo de hipócritas vergüenzas...
Recorro con tus ojos el recuerdo
de humedades y pecados que destilan las promesas...
Murmullo gris que acaricia los acordes
de esta ciudad insomne
donde los corazones rotos, laten sin hacer ruido
Otro atardecer de letanías
Esperando esa vejez que nunca llega
Y esa tácita pregunta del por que aún me encuentro vivo
hace eco en las paredes hoy vacías...
Y tu te alejas...
tu rostro es devorado por el temblor inerte de un vientre ya dormido
Y yo te espero...
en medio de una calle de esperanzas extraviadas...
Mirando el horizonte...buscando algún destello
de esa luz que habita en la prisión de la deshonra
Un accidente crucificado en una esquina...
Una aventura que se pierde en la nostalgia
Tu y yo..
Mendigos de amores, de caricias oxidadas...
Compañeros de vida o de una muerte agazapada..
El humo de un cigarro te dibuja...
Como un espectro que se pierde allí en el alba...
Un pudo ser abandonado en un espejo...
Ese pensarte que me obliga a decir nada...
Y yo aun te espero...
En esta soledad absurda
Que hoy empaña con su aliento mi ventana

Life in the Village, episode 370: The Pursuit of Ecstasy

"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.
This space extends to the galaxies. Each thing seems located in it. Something that fell off the table must now be down there, even if we don't find it. The old book is still there, on the shelf where I put it years ago, unless someone moved it. Now I want to look something up in that book. So I go to that shelf. There it is.
The located things are there, that's quite true; but every “there” is a there from here, seen and heard by someone here who points from here to there. The space we are examining is the gap between a here and a there.
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."

About this community

"We made it? What happened? We happened." Conversation as an art through which human beings rediscover, rekindle, revitalize and respond - after which we align with the world, small moves, until here and now. "What does the world look like seen through conversational eyes?"

When pressed, we all can get by, all by our selves. And when we feel it is our last resort, we do.

Please note that, "Get By", is seldom optimal.

I love this imaginative, very evocative project by John Koenig. To me, "sonder" is realizing that the world doesn't revolve around us; that each of us isn't the only one who exists in the world; that we may not be unique, after all. Sonder may be sobering for some, but perhaps also liberating for others.

"I ask for your help. Who do you think would be interested in this opportunity – colleague, a friend, a family member or even a student? Do you happen to know anyone who’s cramped in his or her job – someone who’s great but hasn’t been given the opportunity to do great work? Someone who’s stuck in a situation that feels like a job instead of a career? We need someone with drive and willingness to learn, and above all … a commitment to making things better."

+Oshi Shikigami You are correct on that Oshi, though i was not born in the 50s 60s or even the 20s, life was more appreciative then as far as today there is a movement to good, time to make good adjustments and a promise to what u said, i also think times like this what we never got we are amazingly seeing in due time, though it is time consuming but faith it is and its happening

Life in the Village, episode 372: Arrakis
 
Who needs the rare spice Melange when you've got the planet of Arrakis constructed completely out of candy? There might not be anything sweeter than the world of Dune recreated with a two-foot-long gummi worm, dozens of gummi bears standing in for Paul Atreides and the desert-dwelling Fremen, and what has to be pounds of yellow sprinkles and rock candy making up the landscape of Arrakis. The only thing better: the Dune Wiki, as it's pretty hard t...

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...
