[This fictionalized real-life guitar lesson was also an experiment in enacting scenius -- group/scene genius. Following the story of the lesson is the story of the scenius module that helped generate it. The story has already begun and is now addressing Alice:] 

Alice, these guitar lessons, and our conversations on many topics, benefit me in experience and work, and should for you as well. To that end, I always ask what would you like to do, and what are your ideas?

Imbedded in this story is a review of the materials and topics of today's lesson. 

The conversational quotes are made up, comments of a fictionalized Alice. I hope you are fairly represented here though, because yours is the voice of generational change at humanity's crossroads.

____________________________

"I'm not sure what we should do today. I've been busy with the holidays, general life, and back to school, an exhausting schedule, and it has been weeks since we played," said Alice.

"We have a couple of things in progress" said Ron. "One is your interpretation of 'Home Studio' and the other is the social media project."

"Let's do Home Studio."

"Sounds good."

"I'd like to show you a video," said Alice, "that changes the style of another song from Hip Hop to Acoustic. "

. . . . .

They watched the video and studied the chords and rhythms, generating ideas toward reinterpreting the song "Home Studio," by Chance the Rapper and The Social Experiment.

Then they practiced the rhythms of his lyrics:

"Young black boy / How he got the labels scared? / A&R's like 'Chano, you ain't playin fair!' / You gon set a bad example for the average bear / You a yogi, you should idle while in child's position.."

"Apparently his song is about his experiences in the art and business of music," said Ron. "A&R as in 'Artist and Repertoire' in the music business."

"Right, I know the term."

"And I think you know Chance the Rapper ?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chance_the_Rapper

"Yes, I met him a few times, and saw him at the Metro. He built a large following on his own, resisting the record companies, but now he has a recording contract."

"He built his audience without the companies," said Ron.

"Right."

. . . . . 

"I was up late last night doing homework," said Alice. "It's making me tired."

"You're holding up well. You played E minor, G, D and A chords from memory. We can use them in your version of Home Studio. I know your schedule has been hard."

"It is hard -- family, school, social life -- and on top of it our generation is in the eye of the storm of advancing technology. I told you before how I feel about educational programs that have nothing to do with real life. We all realize they're a waste of time. Technology is advancing but people aren't." 

"You said you are network-dependent though.."

"Absolutely. I need to have information available to do the things I have to do." 

"Me too. I utterly depend on it for relationships and work, that couldn't be done otherwise." 

. . . . .

"Practice the chords and the vocal rhythms?" said Ron.

"Maybe I'll start memorizing lyrics," said Alice.

"Good idea."

Outside the studio windows, rain spattered on the streets below, in the home town of Chance the Rapper, who criticized a film about the town as being uninformed about the real local situation, the children of the town, and watching someone die. "Don't tell me to be calm," he said. The filmmaker said the film IS about serious business, lives that have been murdered, senseless violence. 

It is all part of the story, and of Alice's social milieu, and inevitably reflected in the interpretation, development and performance of her song, Alice's song.

"Maybe there is some way to integrate Home Studio with our social media project," said Ron. "Basically if you post or text something of it or about it in any medium, like a seed planted, it might grow into something."

In the streets below, rain was turning into snow. 

"We'll see," said Alice.

Ushering in the Golden Era of Immersive Collaborative Sensemaking

                                IMMERSION IN A STORY EXPERIENCE
 
What would it be like to step into a movie and experience it firsthand, not only as an actor would in the making of the movie, but as an enactor in its performance -- and what if you could make it up as you go along, with all the other enactors in the living movie?

We are experiencing something like that in our online KE collaboration and are seeking a deeper understanding of it. The Periodic Table of Immersive Elements in the chart below maps out many of the factors we have encountered in our search, in the course of our actual immersive experiences, and in research of the literature.

Ch  =  Chronos
V         Visual
Sd       Sounds
Ta       Taste

An  =  Anticipation
Em     Emotion
Cv      Conversation
Su      Social Cue

M   =   Mind
Id        Identity
Sf       Sense of Self
Sc      Sense of Control

And many more immersive elements.


What if the "movie" we are enacting together could be in a variety of fictionalized genres as in the background chart in the image below, "A Plotting of Fiction Genres" (Mystery, Adventure, SF, Comedy et al)?
h/t +Robert Best

The two charts together give a picture of the elements driving the Knowledge Expeditions.

Ushering in the Golden Era of Immersive Collaborative Sensemaking

                                               SUPERHUMAN?
                      Peak experiences transform people and practices


audio - When you come back (1m:46s):
 
--------> expedition.sceenius.com/audio/AAAU_when_you_come_back.mp3


Many of our habits of the last thousand to ten thousand years are static and brittle, having outlasted their usefulness, and are denying us our meaningful humanity. We can regain the meaning we lost, like children remembering how to explore, by enacting new and dynamic forms of practice. This is now widely doable in the accelerating flow of meaning in the worldwide digital and ecosystemic network. It is already happening in the Knowledge Expeditions:

The virtual travelers in a Knowledge Expedition enact their intentions among themselves in real time and asynchronously via text, images, audio, video, diagrams and documents, resulting in a story with outcome unknown.

This collaborative enaction brings principles of immersion, collaboration and experientiality to life in the very real, yet fictionalized experience of the story of the Knowledge Expeditions, in the world of Sagarmatha.

You're not in Kansas anymore: this lived personal and collective experience is of higher cognitive and social function than in the ordinary hustle and bustle. You bring it back home with you, and to your organization, transforming personal and professional practices and establishing flow.


Flow is proof you have designed and adopted a working, relevant dynamic framework
