1 Een Participerende Democratie is een Samenleving waarin ieder Talent zijn plek heeft.
2.1 De overheid als Ondernemer. Een Politicus is een omgekeerde Ondernemer. Samen vormen ze het Geheel. Is een Ondernemende Politicus een Maatschappelijke Ondernemer? of andersom?
2.2 Sinds het begin van de de 19de eeuw is de overheid gaan ondernemen en heeft daarna de staats-ondernemingen geprivatiseerd. Waarom gaan we niet verder met Maatschappelijk Ondernemen m.b.t. Onderwijs en politie (Beveiliging)?
2.3 Het Product van de Staat, Handhaven, wordt nooit verbeterd. Waarom hebben de Klanten hier niets te zeggen? of is het geen Product?
3.Consensus: Mensen hebben heel veel gemeen. Met Elkaar, als ze SamenWerken, dekken ze de volledige Verander Cyclus af. De verschillen en overeenkomsten van mensen komen ook terug in de Politieke Stromingen.
4. Veiligheid: Is de Overheid bedoeld om ons te beschermen tegen boeven, terroristen en de gevolgen van Rampen? Sinds 1948 heeft de overheid ook de Plicht om de Rechten van de mens na te leven (Human Rights) die volledig overeenkomen met de Pyramide van Maslow die weer volledig past op PoC.
Volgens Max Weber heeft de overheid het Monopolie op geweld maar Alan Fiske laat zien dat Geweld het gevolg is van Moraliteit. De Christelijke moraal wordt zonder problemen opzij gezet voor grof geweld om het eigen Gelijk (Blauw, Unity) te halen.
5. Geld en Banken, waarbj Geld Potentiele Actie is vergelijkbaar met Potentiele Energie of is geld energie of anderom. Kunnen we niet beter op een echt slimme manier energie opwekken?
6. Plato’s Staat gaat niet allen over effectief Samenwerken van de Talenten (Roeping) maar ook over het pad van de Ziel.Als de mens Zichzelf Kent ontstaat er vanzelf een Participerende Samenleving.
Deze blog is een vervolg op mijn blog over Burgerparticipatie.
Die is weer een vervolg is op een blog over de Toekomst van de Rechtsstaat in twee stappen (1) De toekomst van de rechtsstaat en (2) een Alternatief. voor de huidige rechtsstaat.
0.1 Van Verandering naar de Geometrie van de verandering
De Bron van bovenstaande blogs zit in >30 jaar mede-verantwoordelijkheid voor Strategie en grote Veranderprocessen bij ABN en ABN AMRO wat het mogelijk maakte om Paths of Change (PoC) als theorie te waarderen.
Mijn werk als Strateeg gaf me al zicht op Cyclische processen, de relatie met PoC en de Kondratief-cyclus.
De laatste blog over een alternatief voor de Staat is geinspireerd door de Filosoof Bruno Latour die een vergelijking maakte tussen een Ecologie en de Staat. Die theorie vertelde hij aan WRR in 2007 in bijzijn van de Koning:
Bij het schrijven van mijn blog over de ecologie van de stad of andersom de stad als ecologie heb ik gebruik gemaakt van de theorie over ecologien van Holling en Gunderson: Panarchy.
Hieronder een rapport van het Rathenau Instituut over de Participerende Democratie wat volledig de plank misslaat omdat men zich niet los kan maken van de oude bekende Rechtsstaat.
Om dieper in het probleem te duiken raad ik aan om mijn blog over burgerparticipatie te lezen die eindigt met de ultieme Droom van de Anarchist, het volledig Opheffen van de Staat.
Een Participerende Democratie is een democratie waarin alle Rollen die een Mens kan spelen vanwege zijn Talent Samenwerken ten behoeve van het Grootste Goed.
In onze Representatieve democratie worden de burgers vertegenwoordigd door Beroeps-Politici die vanwege hun profiel een koppeling (Game in PoC) maken tussen Regels (Blauw, Jung;Thinking . PoC Unity <-> en Mensen (Groen Feeling (Jung), Social (PoC).
Ze streven naar Consensus waartoe ze Opinies Peilen zodat ze eindeloos herkozen kunnen worden zodat ze op den duur op de hoogste (qua aanzien, macht en salaris) bestuurlijke trede (van de Toren van Babel) kunnen geraken in de Staat of bij een groot bedrijf waar ze het liefst een “makkelijke” Topfunctie ambieren. Dit type politicus is uit op Macht (i.h.a. veroorzaakt dor een gevoel van onmacht).
Politici zijn een combinatie van Blauw (Regels) en Groen (Sociaal) waardoor twee rgenstrijdige wereldbeelden proberen te verenigen waarbij moet worden opgemerkt dat alle vier wereldbeelden elkaars tegendeel zijn wat weer past op de definitie van Carl Jung voor een Quaternion (Vierluik).
Politici streven daarom door het ene beeld naar de hoogste trap va de ladder maar willen an de andere kant erg veel waardering ontvangen van hun socialie groep di eerg veel lijkt op de ouderwetse stam (Tribe) maar nu partij wordt genoemd.
De Politici hebben in de loop der tijd indrukwekkende Manipulatie-technieken (bv Nudging) ontwikkeld om de Burgers Rustig te houden.
Het zijn de bekende Brood en Spelen uit het oude Rome maar ook NLP-achtige technieken uit onder meer de Retoriek om mensen te hypnotiseren en in een trance te brengen.
NLP suggereert iets anders dan de toehoorder hoort door boodschappen tussen de tekst heen te vlechten (met de Tone of Voice, door logische paden aan te bieden die een vrije keuze suggereren maar de kiezer eigenlijk blokkeren en waar men speelt met metaforen waardoor er acher de schermen een bekende metafoor opdoemt wardoor er soms een vijandbeeld wordt opgewekt.
Volksmenners doen dat welbewust maar wellicht nog niet zo effectief als een van hun voorgangers Adolf Hitler gesteund door het communicatie-genie Joseph Goebbels .
Naast de Islam zijn de “oude” vijanden zoals Rusland en nu vooral ook China erg in trek.
Het is de grote vraag of dat allemaal nog klopt zeker omdat ook de Nederlandse Staat onder aanvoering van onze eigen grote Roerganger veel voelt voor de Big Brother-aanpak natuurlijk in een Schapenvacht verpakt (Big Mother?).
2. De Overheid als Ondernemer.
Rondom het Kruis vindt er Business Development plaats waarbij er Diensten (handmatig of virtueel) en of goederen (fysiek) aan de Consument worden geleverd.
Innovatie vindt plaats op basis van “klachten” en Vragen om een Verbetering (“reflect”) die worden omgezet in een Idee of wens.
De belangrijkste oorzaak van Innovatie is het maken en Delen van de oplossing van Foutendie in het engels Expectation Failures worden genoemd.
Als men heeft geleerd van het falen van zichzelf of anderen heeft men Ervaring.
Echte kennis is eigenlijk een combinatie van beelden en moet dus eigenlijk voorstelbaar zijn. Wat je niet ziet geeft geen inzicht en wordt vaak gecompenseerd door in het geheugen opgeslagen worden-stromen.
Mensen die iets niet snappen en het toch weten zijn erg goed in het onthouden van zinsconstructies die aan elkaar worden geplakt.
Door de Dominantie van de Kennis loopt de maatschappij vaak vast en worden mislukkingen niet gezien als een mogelijkheid om van te leren maar als een normaliteit.
First Time Right is dan ook een uitzondering en veel bedrijven zoals de Bouw en de IT verdienen aan het Falen van het systeem.
In de loop der tijd heeft de overheid zich ook op de Markt begeven vgl. de PTT Oprichting 1928) waar later bijv. ook KPN, de Postgiro en de Post uit zijn voortgekomen.
Andere voorbeelden zijn de spoorwegen (semi-staat)en de Electriciteits-sector waarbij de transportnetwerkenzijn afgesplitst net als bij de Spoorwegen.
De overheid als ondernemer mag geen voordeel hebben van haar rol als wetgever en uitvoerder van de wet.
Daarom moeten bijv. de kosten worden doorgerekend en werkzaamheden openbaar worden aanbesteed.
Toch komt het vaak voor (bijv. bij Universiteiten) dat de overheid voordelen geeft aan externe partijen terwijl er geen sprake is van openbare aanbesteding.
Daarom zou het goed zijn als de Overheid als Rechtststaat werd opgeheven zodat alles wat bedrijfsmatig kan plaatsvinden ook alszodanig plaatsvindt.
UIt dit plaatje blijkt dat er twee elkaar compenserende Cycli in de Maatschappij zijn n.l. de Producerende en de Consumerende cyclus die via de Sociale kant (groen, maat, het Hart) . naar elkaar kunnen overspringen.
De overheid produceert Wetten die worden Gehandhaafd.
Handhaven kan worden gezien als een Product dat via de verbetercyclus (klacht, change) zou moeten zou kunnen worden aangepast.
Duidelijk mag zijn dat in onze Representatieve stelsel de Overheid ver van de burger is georganiseerd en zich als een “Baas” (Manager Producent) opstelt.
Bahktin een beroemde Russische filosoof die was opgesloten in de Goelag Archipel van Stalin heeft erg veel “onderzoek” (“bespiegelen”) gedaan naar Dialogen noemt dit de “Magistral Dialoque”. De burgers worden als kinderen behandeld door een StrengeVader die alles weet.
Naast de Wetenschap en het Onderwijs kunnen de Beveiliging (vs Politie en Leger) en de Wegen, die bijv. in een land als Frankrijk in particuliere handen zijn, worden geprivatiseerd waarbij het nog de vraag is of hier sprake moet zijn van maximalisatie in de Winst.
Die kan ook naar andere maatschappelijke functies (zoals banken) worden overgedragen.
In dit kader is interessant om is te kijken naar de perode rond 1920 (het InterBellum) waarin erg veel Cooperatieve functies werden opgericht i.h.a. voor de Arbeiders, die nu weer via slimme trucken in Particuliere handen zijn terecht gekomen.
Dat geldt bijvoorbeeld ook voor de Triodos-bank opgericht door volgelingen van Rudolf Steiner die nu weer een “mormale” imvestment bank is geworden.
In een Participerende Democratie (PD) hebben de politici het niet voor het zeggen ook al spelen ze natuurlijk wel een rol. net als alle andere 12 (+1= 13) rollen.
3. Over Consensus: Wat hebben mensen gemeen?
Het is soms erg Moeilijk om een Meerderheid in het Parlement te vinden voor een Programma van Eisen om Veranderingen in gang te zetten.
Laat staan wat het betekent als alle 17.28 miljoen bewonders van Nederland het in een Participerende democratie eens moeten worden.
Toch valt het mee als er wordt beseft dat er maar een paar (Vier) soorten mensen zijn die kunnen worden verdeeld in 12 Duale soorten die allenmaal weer 2-combinaties zijn van de vier basissoorten.
Het betekent dat vele mensen iets Gemeen hebben alleen dat niet beseffen omdat dat in het Onderwijs en de Opvoeding niet aan de orde is geweest.
Het enige duidelijke verschil, dat tussen man en vrouw is niet bepalend voor de persoonlijkheid.
Politici hebben iets gemeen met INgenieurs/Wetenschappers(Regels) en met Verkopers en Verbeteraars (Waarden) en die overeenkomsten komen ook terug in Politieke stromingen.
Waarom wordt men het dan zo moeilijk eens? Dat komt omdat ongelijksoortige mensen de anderen niet begrijpen en dat komt omdat ze andere woorden gebruiken voor het zelfde en gelijk krijgen vaak over verwoording gaat maar niet over resultaat (Doel).
4.1 Eisico-Analyse en Bowtie
4.2 Geweld en Misdaad
In Amerika is dat door het tweede Amendment op de Grondwet in ieder geval niet het geval. Hier mogen de burger geweld gebruiken. In Nerderland was dat het geval tot 1936 toen de plaatselijke schutters(weer-)korpsen formeel werden opgeheven.
Particuliere beveiligingsbedrijven en recherchebureaus behoeven goedkeuring van de staat. Zij vallen onder de intussen sterk ingekrompen Wet op de weerkorpsen uit 1936 en onder de nieuwe Wet particuliere beveiligingsorganisaties en recherchebureaus van 1997.Inmiddels mogen reders hun eigen schepen met geweld verdedigen.
Er zijn op de wereld erg veel “landen” (“geografisch afgebakende eenheden”?) die het concept van de rechtsstaat gebaseerd op het idee van Max Weber niet hebben. In zo’n geval kun je terug vallen op Antropologische” concepten zoals tribe waardoor de eerder al gememoreerde Alan Fiske en daarmee PoC weer aan de beurt zijn.
Alan Fiske komt samen met Tage Rai in het boek Virtuous Violence tot de conclusie dat geweld vrijwel altijd is gebaseerd op moaraliteit wat erg zichtbaar is bij de Amerikaanse Christenen maar ook bij de Kruistochten en de “kerstening” van de Azteken met grof geweld. Hierbij stapt men met groot genak over de eigen “door God gegeven” normen heen die geweld verbieden (“Gij zult niet doden“).
Volgens Fiske faciliteert een moraliteit het geweld dat nodig is om een sociale relatie te herstellen die past bij het relatietype dat past bij de samenleving (cultuur) waarin men leeft .
Het streven naar Eenheid schept de condities om een in-groep te faciliteren. Hierarchie bevordert de ordening in een groep Gelijkheid genereert geleike kansen en Proportie schept de goede verhoudingen.
De “blauwe” Authority Ranking” samenleving is extreem Gewelddadig ook bij bijv. het Opvoeden van kinderen maar ook bij het afstraffen van afwiijkingen van de norm.
Hierbij is het bijzonder dat men niet geloofd dat een verbod meestal omgekeerd gedrag oproept en dat dus veel misdadigheid loont omdat het verbod schaarste en nieuwsgierigheid oproept wat bij Verslavende stoffen of gedragingen groot Psyschisch en Lichamelijk Leed veroorzaakt.
4.3 Oorlog en Vrede
Diplomatie is bedoeld om oorlog te voorkomen.
5. Over Geld en Banken
5.1 Geschiedenis Bankwezen
De banken bestonden al in het oude Babylonie. Hier fungeerden ze als bewaarplaats van voedselvoorraden die m.b.v. een slimme streepjes code (“spijkerschrift“) geadministreerd werden die later via Klanken Lletters werden. De banken fungeerden toen ook als archief.
In 1881 werd de RijkspostSpaarbank opgericht in het kader van het “verheffen” van Arbeidersklasse. De RPS werd in 1997 samengevoegd met de Postgiro. De Postgiro is een Betalingssysteem.
Rond het eind van de 19de eeuw ontstonden vele cooperaties die een gevolg waren van de naar Engeland overgeslagen Franse Revolutie die doorssloeg naar Rusland en daar werd omgezet in het Communisme, de grote Angst van de Bestuurders in Nederland. De revolutie eindigde “gelukkig” met de mislukte Machtsovername van Pieter Jelles Troelstra.
De Cooperatie (Nu Community) werd in die tijd gezien als de ideale “Broedplaats” van Kapitalisten. “De socialistische en collectivistische theorieën wijzen wij beslist af, omdat wij met hart en ziel gehecht zijn aan de beginselen van vrijheid en van individuele eigendom, die men zo bewonderenswaardig verenigd vindt in onze coöperatieve verenigingen van elke aard”.
Naast de banken voor Consumenten waren er al heel lang Handelsbanken voor Producenten en vooral Handelaren, de Intermediair tussen beiden. De ABN en de AMRO waren voorbeelden van dergelijke Handelsbanken die beschikten over een enorm wereldwijd netwerk dat net als de ambasades de Ondernemers verder hielp.
6. Plato’s Staat en de Ontwikkeling van de Ziel
In de video wordt uitgelegd dat Socrates het van groot belang vindt dat de mens zich onywikkeld waarbij hij het beeld van de twee paarden gebruikt waarbij het ene paard gestuurd moet worden (de passies) en het andere paard (het bewustzijn zijn weg vind.
Als de mens zichzelf kent ontstaat er vanzelf een participerende samenleving.
De Draai gaat van Regelen (Kennis,Wetenschap, Besturen, Organiseren, gegevens) naar Ontregelen (Verbeelding, Cultuur, Zelforganisatie, beelden, film, simulator zien, inzicht). Het is de overgang van door de mens gestroomlijnde systemen naar natuurlijke stroom-systemen die passen op het tijdperk van de Waterman.
Zelforganisatie is wat anders dan anarchie. Voor deze vorm van “Laten gaan” is de term Panarchie uitgevonden door de wetenschappers Holling en Gunderson die een model hebben gemaakt van een Ecologie.
Een ecologie staat of valt met de Diversiteit van de deelnemers.
Grote veranderingen in de Tijdgeest verlopen Cyclisch en zijn daarom Voorspelbaar.
In this blog you will learn that we are very close to a big Physical, Technical but also PhiloSophical, Social and Medical Transformation caused by a major Breakthrough in physics because of the Fusion of Quantum Mechanics, Gravitation, Electromagnetism, the Weak Interaction, and the Strong Interaction.
The new insights are explained by the Octonions that are extensions of the Complex numbers. The octonions represent Rotations of Rotations of Rotations (=Spirals) in 8D space. Spiraling spirals have always been seen as the sources of our universe. See Chapter 0 Introduction.
In chapter 0 called the Nilpotent Universe you will learn that our Universe is a (Turing)-Machine that is able to adapt its own programming Language by evaluating the Nilpotent constraint meaning that the Sum of all Changes has to be Nil (“zero”, “empty”).
The interesting point is that the (re?)discovered “Language of God” has a lot in common with the ancient constructed languages including Sanskrit (,meaning the practice (Krit) of producing Sounds (Sans).
-1 Whats wrong with Current Physics, What is abandoned and Why?:
In this part you will find out what the current state of Physics is about and what old theories were dropped. The main reason is that the solutions that made use of higher dimensions could not be fused with Einsteins theory of Relativity and with Quantum Mechanics that both were able to predict and explain many facts until Dark Matter and Dark Energy appeared.
In this chapter you will learn that the Universe is a (Turing-)Machine programmed by a special language.
The machine is controlled by a Constraint that ensures a Zero Sum.
This special language differs from a traditional computational semantic language description with a fixed or finitealphabet, in that the production-rules allow new symbols to be added to the initial alphabet.
This means that the language of Creation is able to Change its own definition.
The production starts with just one symbol representing ‘nothing’ and contains two fundamental rules:
(1): Create, a process which Adds new Symbols, and (2): Conserve, a process that examines the Effect of any new symbol on those that currently exist, to ensure ‘a “zero sum’ again.
The Big Transformation (Chapter 1) is the move from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius (The Water Baerer) being the change of DualisticScience to Non-Dualistic Science (Advaita) finding a shared Unity (1-ness), between what we See and what we Are.
We have to stop streamlining and let the water flow.
The Shared Unity of Reality and the Self could be the Zero (0), of the nothingness of the Nilpotency (chapter 0) of the Heart of the Universe where 0=0 or the 1 of the Unity of the Point of the Singularity of the Bindu (the Zero-Point Field)or the 2 of the Line of the Observer of Projective Geometry,(Chapter 2)
and the 0+1+2=3 Dimensions of Space and the Trinityof the Triangle of the 2+3=5 of the Pentagram of the ChineseSheng Cycle.
In this Blog I Combine (Part 3), Change/ Transformation (Part 1 ) and Geometry (Part 2).
In Chapter 0 You will see that Physics can be explained by the Octonions being a Combination of the Combination (Quaternions) of the combination (Complex Numbers) of the Real Numbers being Rotations of Rotations of Rotations (= Spirals)of Space.
This is a presentation of Peter Marcer About the Universe as a Cybernetic System.
The Big Bang is an interpolation of the Expanding Universe to a theoretical Beginning. In Part 2 you will learn that there is a lot of doubt about this concept.
The main reason is that the foundational measurements of the “speed of Light” prove to be wrong destroying the theory of Albert Einstein.
The big problem is that a Big Bang needs a lot of Energy but also generates the same question again and again until we believe in an always returning, Cyclic Universe.
If you are willing and able to read this chapter you will see that the solution to our biggest and most expensive scientific problem is very simple and applicable to all the other exact sciences including Biology:
Our Universe is a self-replicating Turing Machine and
This 0th chapter contains links and texts that prove that our Universe is Nilpotent meaning that all the Values of the PartsSum to Zero.
This makes it possible to bring a lot of the most complex formula’s back to simple formula that show very simple connections that can be explained by Symmetry Breaking.
Our Universe can be explained by simple building blocks that unite and disconnect in a very simple way that can be described by a simple machine just as the old Magus Leibniz imagined. He called this the principle of sufficient reason:
““Dieu a choisi celuy qui est… le plus simple en hypotheses et le plus riche en phenomenes” (God has chosen that which is the most simple in hypotheses and the most rich in phenomena)”.
The most useful Production rules” of the grammar of the Universe are the so called Octonions a generalization of the complex numbers in 8 (2**3) dimensions where i, j en k are √-1. are the foundation of the Quaternions. The most important point here is that he Complex numbers, the Quaternions and the Octionions represent Rotations in N-dimensional Space.
Our Universe rotates and its rotations rotate also generating changes that are unchanged. We always move back to the beginning that is Empty (“zero”). History Repeats Itself and patterns repeat themselves in so many different the same ways that most people don’t see that we are repeating the repetitions on every level of scale until the smallest Planck level and the biggest universe. The patterns are Scale-Free.
This is the Chinese Sheng Cycle (SC) which is result of the Lo Shu Magic Quadrant projected on Paths of Xhange.
Observe that the Model of Peter Rowlands looks a lot like the model I use (PoC) with the big difference that PoC is a Dynamic Model. In the Sheng Cycle you see the combination of Duality (<->) and Trinity by making a connection to the other Dualities. The Paths of Cange moves With (Producing) and against the Clock (Consuming).
Paths of Change (PoC) is based on a Dual model that contains two variables (1): Agency(Compression) & (2): Communion (Expansion) which are the same as Yin & Yang. 2×2= 4 = 2**2. 4 points have 12 + 1 (center) = 13 connections. Because of the 12 connections PoC contains many Triangels.
PoC contains 4 Points of View (PoV) called Unity (Blue, Rules, Thinking), Sensory (Sensory Meter System, Real Red), Social (Emotions, Green) and Mythic( Creation, View, Imagination), Yellow).
Time and Charge are Imaginary unless we use a Clock like the Earth rotating the Sun or the Polestar rotating with the Precession cycle.
Space is Real when we move on Earth using a Reference System that also could be the Stars and the Planets we can see with our personal Sensors. Mass is Real because we experience Mass as an Attraction of a bigger Mass (Earth) and sense the influence of the Moon in the rise of the Sea. Mass & Charge are Attractors and Not Attractors and are therefore related to the Emotions.
Mass & Charge are “Conserved” Physical quantities that remain constant with time are called conserved quantities. Example, for a body under external force, the kinetic and potential energy change over time but the total mechanical energy (kinetic + potential) remains constant. The appearance of a given amount of positive charge in one part of a system is always accompanied by the appearance of an equal amount of negative charge somewhere else in the system;
Mass & Charge contain a “negative” and a “positive” value we could define as “zero”. According to Peter the Universe is Nilpotent meaning that its sum is always zero. This implies that the (Sum of the) Beginning of the Universe was Zero too (Empty).
The mathematician Emily Noeter proved that every conservation can be translated in a special type of Symmetry (see Chapter 2).
A Big Transformation is Predicted by The Precession Cycle
There are many Cycles with different Periodicities. The longest Cycle known by the ancient Astrologers is the Precession Cycle with a cycle-time of 25800 years. The cycle runs retrograde, in de opposite direction as the Seasonal cycle and covers the twelf Constellations of the Zodiac. An age takes 25800/12= 2150 years.
A much shorter cycle is the Kondratiev with a periodicity of about 50 years. Currently we are moving from the Kondratiev Winter to the Kondratiev Spring a period in which many disruptions take place. After the Spring we will move into the Golden Age (Summer).
According to astrologic we are leaving the Age of Pisces (started around 0BC. In Luke 22:10, when jesus (the Fisherman) is asked by his 12 apostles where he will go to settle his new kingdom, he responds, “Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you bearing a pitcher of water, follow him into the house where he entereth in.” This is the “House of Aquarius”.
Perception involves the more central regions making predictions, which propagate toward the peripheral (sensory) regions. The peripheral regions compare the prediction with incoming sensory information and send back prediction error signals. This happens across numerous layers.
We see what we expect to see, with the incoming information forcing corrections.
Solms notes that a self evidencing system receiving information that violates its expectations can react in one of three ways.
It can act to change conditions to bring the signals more in line with its expectations.
It can change which representation(s) it’s currently using to make better predictions. This is perception.
It can adjust the precision of the predictions to more optimally match the incoming signal.
Solms identifies the last as Consciousness.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand” (Albert Einstein)
In a Conformal Geometry you look at the world with the (cognitive) Instrument of a fisheye-lens.
In a conformal geometry Big and Small are comparable. This means that our Universe is Fractal or as was stated by the ancient Magi as As Above so Below: Our mind is a simulation of the universe.
“The feedback-loops in the cell-like structures of self-propelling space can be seen as a giant mind (a neural network) that is split in many (in)dependent minds. One of these minds is the mind of the Human but cells, the body, the brain, earth, our galaxy and the universe are also mindful” (Reginald Cahill)
According to Conformal Field Theory (CFT) we live on the almost Flat Boundary (“a Frame“) of a “sliced” (“layered”) (hyperbolic) Anti-de-Sitter Space.Observe the “fisheye-structure”on top and below of the 3D-“tube”.
Above you see 3 types of space in which space is curved at a special way in which the sum of the angles is equal smaller or bigger than 180 degrees. Observe that the all the types have their own way to define a RIGHT angle which is a way to define a new dimension.
Christi Belcourt (Métis) – The Wisdom of the Universe, 2014
Julian Barbour (Physicist, writer of the book “The end of Time“): The only thing that Exists in our Universe are Changing Shapes. “There is no invisible river of time. But there are Shapes that you could call Instants of Time, or ‘Nows‘. As we live, we seem to move through a succession of Nows, and the question is, what are they? They are arrangements of everything in the universe Relative to each other in any moment, for example, now“.
Currently we measure Time with an artificial constructed (atom-)Clock. Before the invention of the clock time was related to the cyclical processes in the year that were related to the movement of the (Male)Sun and the (Female)Moon.
The big patterns were related to the movement of the Stars that are related to the Precession Cycle. At that time the Map of the Sky and the Map of the Earth were aligned.This means that the maps of the Earth are projections of star maps but also that the locations on earth where looking like the patterns in the sky. A good example is the Seven Cities of Paul in the Apocalypse that were aligned to thePleiades.
The Geometry of Shapes (“Similarity Geometry“) is the most important geometry because it contains the Potential of creation. This Geometry corresponds with Mythic in paths of Change (the Creative Personality) and Equality Matching in the theory about Social Relationships of Alan Fiske. It can also be found as the Hero in the Myths of all Cultures researched by Joseph Campbell., the Fool (o) in the Tarot, Zero in the Numbersystem and Λ or ∅ in Set Theory.
he most used geometry is Euclidian Geometry. We measure everything. Even our relationships are measured in terms of values like money and possession. We have forgotten to value social contributions.
In the Beginning
The blog begins after a few Video’s about the current insight about the Geometry of the Universe. It looks like our Universe is without a beginning and an end but also without Time and Space. It is filled with Infinite Possibilities.
The Tao is like a well: used but never used up. It is like the eternal void: filled with infinite possibilities.
It is hidden but always present. I don’t know who gave birth to it. It is older than God.
In Hinduism, a Kalpa. , a Cycle of a Universe, is equal to 4.32 billion years, called a day of Brahma . In Hinduism, Brahmā (Sanskrit: meaning “swelling” or “expansion”) is God in his manifestation as Creator of the universe. Brahmā is part of the Trimurti (the Hindu Trinity) alongside Vishnu and Shiva. Brahma lives on top of Mount Meru (look at the triangle on the head of Brahma) also called Pascal’s Triangle (see Chapter 9).
When we push all the shapes together they will become a Black wHole. What is able to create such a Force? What lies behind the Black Hole? The Nothing,Empty Space? Is Empty space Possible? Is the Sum of Things Zero or Infinite (8)?

From chapter 10 on I describe the relationship between geometry and change. I will show that our Embodied language already contains everything we have to know about geometry.

1 The Pragmatism of Charles Sanders Peirce
Writing chapter 12 has generated (as always) many issues I never thought about before. The major cause is Charles Sanders Peirce , (1839-1914) the “inventor” of Semiotics and the first Pragmatist in the Us. He believed that science is finished when the theories are working in Practice but also that the Laws and Constants of Nature are changing all the time.
In this blog you wil find out that current science has moved far away from he path of converging because it lost its foundation. This foundation lies behind the imagination in the nothing.
After my encounter with Peirce I stumbled upon The theory of J. W.Dunne who experimented with predicting the Future and discovered Hyperspace.
Looking for Hyperspace gave the link to ANPA, an organization of scientists who try to understand the Paranormal. After that I rediscovered (New) Thinking Allowed(NTA), a YouTube-channel of Jeffrey Mislowe, a wellknown para-psychologist.
I (re)discovered NTA because I have always been interested in the paranormal because I was ” paranormal” since I was a child. Ghosts visited me when I was young and when I was older I became “enlightened” (“a terrifying experience”).
Looking for an interesting issue on NTA I rediscovered Alien Abductions and the Grays (our descendants out of the Future), an issue I also encountered when I met the medium Judith Moore. by accident. She helped me to understand what was happening to me after my Jump of my Kundalini that caused many strange effects. Through Judith I discovered that I was of the lineage of the Persian Magi.
As you can see this Blog grows by accident because I Explore (a connection between the Imagination and Action) every Possible paths just as Nature is doing.
Introduction in Semiotics
“If we are to proceed in a logical and scientific manner; we must; in order to account for the whole universe; suppose an initial condition in which the wholeuniverse was non existent; and therefore a state of absolute nothing:…We start; then; with nothing; pure zero: But this is not the nothing of negation: For not means other than; and other is merely a synonym of the ordinal numeral second: As such it implies a first; while the present pure zero is prior to even first: The nothing of negation is the nothing of death; which comes second to; or after; everything: But this pure zero is the nothing of not having been born: There isno individual thing; no compulsion outward nor inward; no law: It is the germinal nothing; in which the whole universe is involved or foreshadowed: As such; it is absolutely undefined and unlimited possibility boundless possibility There is no compulsion and no law: It is boundless freedom:(Collected papers of S. Peirce, 1931)
When you look at he 2 pictures below who are taken out of the second link about Semiotics you can see that the Representamen is an intermediary beween the Duality of the Object (Event, Outside) and the Subject (Inside, Square, (Mind<-> Senses)<-> (Emotions<->Imagination).
In the third picture below you see that the Triangel is a Connection of 3 Dualities.
The metamyth is a model that contains all the myths in every culture. This myth is defined by Joseph Campbell in his book The Hero with a thousand Faces.

Predicting the Future by Observing the Observer in Hyperspace
This is Version 2. In this version I have finished the Educational part of this blog (Chapter 1) and I have started to write about the Geometry of Change. in chapter 12.
In this part I advice you to spend some time on a video of George Lakoff one of the Leading Scientists in Embodied Cognition . This part of Cognition Theory is based on the Fusion of Complementary concepts (“Bisocation“).
Will McWhinney gave me a book of J.P. Carse called Infinite Games. Infinite games are the opposite of the Finite Game that ends when somebody has won. The Infinite Game is a Game that Creates Games. It is the game of the Trickster. The same Dichotomy can be found in the difference between a Vocation and a Career. In a career (a Racetrack) you Win or Lose.
In this blog you will find that the Finite Game of the Controllers is related to Affine Geometry (Order, Ranking, Being the Same) and the Infinite Game of the Trickster to the Similarity Geometry (Being Different). There are two more Geometries that are related to Measures (Euclidian) and Connections (Projective).
We are witnessing the birth of Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI has nothing to do with Intelligence. It is producing Artificial Humans that beat humans in many area’s (Chess, GO) but still not in Mathematics. Just like you’re calculator you have the choice to be dependent on a machine or to become an exception a human who is able to calculate by Head. Every new Technology makes us more dependent from this new technology (“the so called Automation Paradox)
This is one of the most interesting documents about the Foundations of Physics and Mathematics I have read for a very long time. It shows what I already wrote down a few years ago about Geometric Algebra that the Number system opens up new number systems when to want to Reverse what you did.
The Positive numbers end by zero and move over to the negative numbers. When you standardize repeating adding and call it multiply dividing ends when you reach zero. Repeating multiplying generates the square roots that end with the negative numbers generating the Imaginary numbers (i=SqRT-1) but this is not the end. Generalizing the imaginary numbers (the Quaternions) created numbers nobody understood until it was found that they are Rotations in N-Dimensional Space.
Peter Rowland surprises by showing that the symmetries in the symmetries show the Implicate Order of David Bohm and more important that zero (“truly empty) is the Beginning (“alpha”) and the end (“omega”). Which means that the universe is always in balance.
If a statement is true its Negation is also true. In geometry Points also called incidents are lines that Meet and Lines are unions of Points. A point is not-Space and is empty and Flat space is a union of lines. True Statements can be rephrased with different components that create new truths about existing components. The next step is Category Theory in which you can reason with theories (called Functors) as objects called Types.
The third video is about the emerging Global Brain. The first two video’s are about the Foundation of Mathematics which is based on Contradiction . The fourth video is about the Human Relationship theory of Alan Fiske.THis theory is a Bridge between Geometry and Change Management.
In the blog about the Ecology of the State I reused a blog about Anti-Fragility, a new name for Resilience. Resilience is a major variable in the theory of Panarchy which is a theory about Ecologies.
I combined Panarchy with Paths of Change also a Theory about change and the theory of Alan Fiske about Human relationships. This combination gave me the insight that there is a shared Geometry behind many of the theories tabout Change.
This blog gives you an opportunity to combine the theories yourself. I also will show you that this geometry was known for a very long time ago mainly starting in India (See “Vedic Mathematics“). In the interpretation of the Theory of Alan Fiske the Scales of Measurement play an important role. I have created a special Chapter 8. for this subject.
In this blog I want to explore the Geometry of Change. To make it possible that others are also able to think about Geometries this blog contains many Educational Videos’.
As you can see in this Chapter Geometry is very old. It was the Foundation of Art, Architecture , the State and Religion. People have been fascinated by Patterns like the visible patterns Up in the Sky of the Sun, Moon Planets and the Zodiac but also the patterns in numbers. Out of Geometry many sciences have grown that were grouped in schools sometimes called a University. Behind he patterns music was found and music was also created using patterns. The most important Music was the Music of the Spheres . This chapter is Big. It contains many Video’s that contain simulations. The main reason is that you have to See (“insight”) the Theory to understand the Practice.
How Physics, Movement, Symbols and Sound are supported by Geometry
The geometry of our space has zero curvature. In spaces with positive or negative curvature other rules are valid. George Bernhard Riemann developed a new geometrical concept by imagining a 2-dimensional bookworm living on a 3D crumpled sheet of paper.
The surface of the paper would seem to be flat and undistorted. Because the worm can only perceive two dimensions it would not be able to detect that his own body crumples with the paper in the higher dimension. The “force” that would keep the bookworm from moving in a straight line was not a mysterious “action at a distance”, but a result of the unseen warping from the third dimension.
You can imagine a similar experience by walking a straight line on a rotating platform. To you the shortest connection is a straight line while you move with a curve when observed by someone outside the platform. The geometry changes the idea that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.
It even changes the idea that we return on the same point when we move in a loop (“circle”). This happens when our space contains one or more holes (“singularities”, “dividing by zero”).
With this example you can learn that it makes a lot of Difference when you are In (Intrinsic) or Outside (Extrinsic) the Context.
8 Theory of Measurement
Measurements can be made through the human Senses or through the use of a measurement Instruments.
Measurement is the assignment of Numerals to a system according to a set of rules. These rules are called a Theory.
Our senses or the instruments that are used to measure the system also represent a theory. This theory has a sometimes unknown impact on our measurement.
To avoid the Bias of the Theory behind our Measurement Systems a theory has to be a Structure Preserving mapping, a homomorphism. The Structure of the system has to stay the same when the rules are applied.
If the theory does not preserve structure the theory introduces its own theory and we are not measuring the original system.
Not only the primary theory has to be a homomorphism. The complete chain of theories we use has to preserve the structure (The Uniqueness Axioma) of the original system.
To avoid Bias a System of Measurement Scales is defined.
a Nominal Scale defines Sets. Sets contain the Same elements. When we want to preserve structure we have to satisfy the constraint If s1 = s2 ⇔ f(s1) = f(s2) (“the Same stays the Same”). This is called the Symmetric group, the group of all Permutations of the objects in the Set.
The Ordinal Scale is part of the nominal scale. The relational structure preserved during the measurement process preserves equality and order. The set of admissible transformations are relations that satisfy the constraint If s1 < or >s2 ⇔ f(s1) < or >f(s2). This is called the Order-Preserving Group and is the group of monotonic increasing functions.
The Interval Scale has to satisfy the constraint If s1−s2 = s3−s4 ⇔ f(s1)−f(s2)=f(s3)−f(s4).This is called the General Linear Group (or Affine Group). Differences can only be preserved when the transformation is a Linear transformation Ax + B where A is a Rotation and B is Translation (Displacement).
The Ratio Scale has to satisfy the constraint If s1/s2 = s3/s4 ⇔ f(s1)/f(s2) = f(s3)/f(s4). This is called the Linear Group.The only transformation that satisfies this constraint is the functions f(x) = Ax. This means that the only tranasformation that is left is muliplication and division (“not by zero!). which is transl;lated in Expansion and Compression the object of Topology.
Figures shown in the same color are similar. A similar structure can be transformed by Rotation, Translation (Displacement) and Scaling (Multiplication), “blow up/down”).
With Geometric Algebra you can Calculate with Shapes. Geometric algebra is a very convenient representational and computational system for geometry. It is going to be the way computer science deals with geometrical issues. It contains, in a fully integrated manner, linear algebra, vector calculus, differential geometry, complex numbers and quaternions as real geometric entities, and lots more.
Geometric Algebra brings us back to the Tetractys of Pythagoraswhich shows the Fourth triangular number which is part of the Triangle of Pascal.also called the Yang Hui in China and Mount Meru in Sanskrit. The Triangle of Pascal contains many Fractal structures that were used a very long time ago in Music (Rythms), Art & Architecture (Proportions) and Numerology (“The Art of interpreting Patterns in Numbers).
Realize that the 3D version of Panarchy is also a 3D version of the Movement of the Relational Models of Alan Fiske and their related Geometries in Cognitive Space and the movement of many Concepts that share the same Worldviews of Path of Change.
Also Realize that Panarchy is a result of a theory (Cultural Theory) that is based on the same Worldviews of PoC and of Alan Fiske that can be explained by a 2×2 Matrix containing the variablesAgency and Communion that are the same as Yin and Yang.
Agency and Communion also determine the Big Five the most used Personality Classification (and many others)
Yin and Yang are also represented by 0 and 1 and therefore the Triangle of Pascal represents the many combinations of possible personalities on earth but is also a result of a completely different System (Geometries) to calculate Combinations. Think about (X>Y)**n (Affine) or (X-Y)**n (Euclidian) as an example (X>Y)**n is a Program (“Protocol”) to n times create all the possiblecombinations of X>Y.
It is therefore also not strange to call the total process of the movement of Expansion (Yin) and Compression (Yang) in space the Cosmic Breath named the Svara in Sanskrit. Svara स्वर (svara and svāra): Voice, musical note, sound; note of the musical scale, tone in recitation, accent in grammar, symbolic expression.
As you can see in the picture above PG makes use of drawing Lines that connect the Point of the Eye (the Sensor) with the \Planes and Points of the Object of the Drawing. Observe that the object is a Sphere. and that the two lines connect with the sphere at the Horizon which is a line we often confuse with Infinity(“the point we will never reach”).. Also observe that the rear-end of the Sphere is invisible.
The pole of the Sphere can be connected to Parallel Lines that Never Cross. The lines connected to the eye of the artist and the Pole always have an Angle>0.
PGConnects many Points(“people”) by Lines (“Connectors“) and is there fore highly comparable with Communal Sharing of Fiske and Social of PoC.
In 1872 Felix Klein, published a new Mathematical Research Program called the Erlangen Program under the title Vergleichende Betrachtungen über neuere geometrische Forschungen.
In this program Projective Geometry was emphasized as the Unifying Frame for all other Geometries.
Although lines in the Projective Plane meet in one point of Infinity Klein argued that there could be two points of Infinity if the Projective Plane was a Surface Closed in Itself.
When we look at the Origin of Projective Geometry, the Artist painting A Sphere, Earth, on a Flat Surface, it is not difficult to realize that this Closed Surface is a Sphere. This sphere is projected on a plane that contains the imaginary numbers that are solutions of the cross-ratio when the 4 points 𝐴𝐵𝐶𝐷 are not on a circle.
12 Using The Geometry of Change
Refresh and Surprise
First I present a few Slides to refresh your knowledge about the Background of the Blog or to surprise you.
In chapter 13 start to talk about the Geometries of Change.
The issue of this chapter is to help you to think about related issues like Machines, Cybernetics, the Anticipatory System of Rosen but also about Semiotics.
You don’t have to understand everything and you can also skip as many issues as you want.
I hope you become inspired to look at the geometry with another view (“I hope the Mythic“) and see the Magic (“have you looked at . the video about “Mystic Geometry in Chapter 1″?).
Autoiesis is about Self-Reproduction or Repairduring Production. Neil Theise loops from makro-levels to micro-levels of what we call reality. He explains complexity, autopoiesis,positive &negative feedback-loops, cancer and how all that relates to us in the universe and the universe in us? Why ants move away from their territory to come back when they have found the food that is needed.
The presentation behind the link above explains the theory of Robert Rosen in combination of the theory of George Lakoff. For the last one move below. For the first one explore this blog about Meta-Engineering. As you will see is that the presentation tells a comparable story as Chapter 2 about measurement in the way that it explains that a model is a mapping from something we experience outside with our senses (A natural system) or with our instruments and we have to make a structure preserving mapping to avoid that we introduce a bias with our measurement instruments.
The first thing you have to realize is that you have been looking at pictures that describe the same subject with different names. All of them are about Change and Change looks like Breathing <-.-> (Contract/Expand). Below you see the Expansion Pattern of “nothing”/. This pattern is controlled by the Trinity, the number 3 and the Triangel. This pattern is called the Bronze Mean. It is a specialization of the Golden mean. The bronze mean contains a very important number 43.
The first picture of this paragraph contains a Cycle connected to another Cycle where both cycles move in opposite direction showing the well known Moebius Ring (8). The model contains a center that contains the model of the whole. This is called a fractal. When you compare this model with other models look at the colors. I have used the same colors of PoC all the time.
13 About Affine Geometry, Maps, Metaphors and Mappings
In the model of the Geometry of Change you see that Blue, named Unity in PoC and Knowledge in other models is called an Affine Geometry and is connected the concept Rank and the Constraint If s1 < or >s2 ⇔ f(s1) < or >f(s2) which is called the Order-Preserving Group. Knowledge is an Order but what order?
The solution to this puzzle can be found at the beginning of this blog where you read the sentence “The role of Higher Dimensions in Physics and Mathematics”. The concept Dimension is used to define a Ranking of Spaces.
14 About Euclidian Geometry, Distance and the Horizon
In the picture above you see the Horizon. Horizon is related to Horizontal, a line that is perpendicular to a line that moves from Up to Down or Back. the horizon is an Illusion because we live on a Globe. Behind the Horizon we see nothing but we know that there is something behind the Horizon. In our Perspective the Horizon is the place where parallel lines Cross. The word horizon derives from the Greek “ὁρίζων κύκλος” horizōn kyklos, “separating circle”, where “ὁρίζων” is from the verb ὁρίζωhorizō, “to divide”, “to separate”, which in turn derives from “ὅρος” (oros), “boundary, landmark. The horizon is a symbol for infinity (“the place we never will reach” but also something we can find wen we keep on moving at the right direction.
About Deep Learning & Euclidian and Non-Euclidian Shapes.
This video explains Neural Networks using Graphs that are able to recognize Non-Euclidian Objects.
About Scapes and Meta-Systems.
Below you see a picture and a presentation of Kent Palmer. He found out that the term Scape (Schap in Dutch) we use in Landscape is used to imagine a “flat plane” . In dutch and english scape is also translated into ship (“Friendship, vriendschap) being a relationship that carries as a tray, something to hold something.
Perspectives are about seeing something but seeing is used as an insight. We look at our personal frame.
The last chapter of this blog is put into a new blog that contains a lot of links that are about the fusion of Quantum Mechanics and “old” theories of Physics. This fusion proves that we are living in the Matrix.
This blog is an Extension of the last chapter of my blog about the Future of the State. In this blog I come to the conclusion that the State or the City-state makes The Rich Richer and the Poor poorer.
The main reason is that the State is an Aristocracy that looks like a Democracy.
The State is a Contradictio in terminis: It accomplishes the Opposite it wants to accomplish.
The main reason is that the managers of the state believe in controlling everything instead of Self-Organization (P-Anarchy).
As you will later see in this blog this effect is the result of Dualism which is the foundation of Current Science. This problem is solved in Complexity Science, the Subject of this Blog.
I have transformed the last chapter of this blog into a new blog. called The Geometry of Change.
This blog is not a scientific article but a collage that contains many intellectual surprises.
Observe that the agents are rotating With and Against the Clock. A combination of both is a Moebius Ring (looks like 8).
this Blog discusses a Design for an Alternative of he City and/or the State based on the idea that they are an Ecology. An Ecology Dies when there is not enough Diversity. The same applies to a City or a State. You are diverse when you are Different.
For more info about what an Ecology is see Chapter 3. Below you can see the Design.
About Rotating Rotations
Observe that the Wheel of Time is propagating itself by exploding at the right moment just like a motor . This explosion is the Fusionof the Aha-erlebnis, the Feeling of Discovery.
Observe that the 5th view is called Whole (white). It is the center of the system (Monitor) put into the System itself. Putting a whole in a whole is called a fractal.
About Ancient Civilizations
In this short introduction I show you the very rich knowledge of Ancient Civilizations that already existed > 620.00 BC. They contain the roots of the concept of the state but also of the many conflicts we are totally not aware of that are now hidden behind the walls of Religion.
This blog starts with a few pictures and links to related articles about Urban Ecologies and some quotes and interesting video’s about Complexity Science which is the Toolset I try to Use in this blog.
About Urban Ecologies
The models of Urban Ecologies are Control/Cybernetic Systems.
After the models I explain what Complexity Science is about using two PDF’s, 2 citations and a video of Stuart Kaufman, Nassim Taleb and Robert Sapolski.
After the video’s I present a List of Chapters with a short description of the content of the chapters and Chapter 0: Introduction which is the “real” beginning of this blog .
Complexity Science is not about the Parts but about the Whole. The Notes are not the Music played with the notes. The Meal is not the recipe. The City is not its Citizens
The basic components of a complex adaptive systems are called agents. They are typically conceived as ‘black box’ systems, meaning that we know the rules that govern their individual behaviour, but we do not care about their internal structure.
Nassim Taleb:“We have the illusion that the world functions thanks to programmed design, university research, and bureaucratic funding, but there is compelling — very compelling — evidence to show that this is an illusion. Technology is the result of antifragility, exploited by risk-takers in the form of tinkering and trial and error. Engineers and tinkerers develop things while history books are written by academics; we will have to refine historical interpretations of growth, innovation, and many such things. … The error of naive rationalism leads to overestimating the role and necessity of … academic knowledge, in human affairs — and degrading the uncodifiable, more Complex, intuitive, or experience-based type”.
Below you can find a picture that tries to explain Panarchy (see chapter 3). The colors are a link to PoC (chapter 4). A pandemic is the result of a jump (Revolt) from a Virus part of the Human Body-Ecology to a Social Network (and further a City).

In this blog I am trying to find out if it is possible to use Complexity Theory to design a FairSelf Organizing Structure to replace the State.
In the end of this blog I will use all the acquired knowledge to design a new model for a State and a City.
1. About Cycles:
A Cycle is a Selforganizing System. We experience many Cyclic processes like Day and Night and the Seasons.
virtually everything that happens on Earth runs in cycles—our climate, the markets, political systems, societies, wars, financial ups-and-downs, etc. Our ancestors have known this for centuries.
“Practically all living processes are organised in cycles. The organism is thick with biological rhythms ranging from periods of split seconds for electrical activities of brain cells to seconds such as the heart-beat and respiration, to periods which are circadian and circannual. But no one has ever been able to explain why that should be.
The answer is provided by thermodynamics. It turns out that symmetrically coupled cycles are the key to both the conservation of coherent energy and compensation (or cancelling out) of entropy within the system so that living organisation is maintained.
As one cycle of activity is running down, it is charging up a second cycle, so that the role can be reversed later. Similarly, as disorder is created in some part of the system, a kind of superorder appears in elsewhere, which can restore order to the first part” (Mae Wan Ho).
Observe that MAe Wan Ho uses a theory that explains Anti-Fragility (“Order out of Disorder“) called Thermodynamics. Mae Wan Ho wrote this text long before the concept Anti-fragility was invented. Thermodynamics comes back in Chapter 8.
The Life Cycle of the Organism consists of a self-similar fractal structure of cycles.
About Cycles (part 2):
At a certain point in time Humans detected the cyclic processes in the Night Sky that took more than a life-time to return to their beginning. They found he Cycle of the Precession of the Equinox.
observe that a lot of the CyclesRotate around other Cycles. A rotating rotation is a Spiral.
The State and the City, the Mother of the state, are not alone a Boundary in Space but are also a Cyclic System .that synchronizes with all the other Cyclic systems in its environment(Growth Cycle of Agriculture, Sun cycle, Seasons, Moon Cycle/ Menstruation Cycle, Great Cycle of the Precession, ..).
In this blog I introduce Complexity Theory (CT) to design a new type of State, the Self Organizing State or city. CT shows that when we Stop controlling a system It will Self-organizes.
Humans contain cells, contain molecules contain atoms etc etc. The organizing principle repeats until the deepest level ,the vacuum but it also moves up until Cities States and the Earth.
This blog contains examples of a new model for the State and the City who was the Mother of the State.
This model is based on the model of Panarchy. Panarchy is a model of an Ecology.
If you are only interested in the model move to Chapter 12.
I hope you already believe that the State is an Ecology. If you believe this please realize that Complexity Theory tells you that you have to Trust the Self-Organizing power of the State. So stop organizing and Remove the Barriers of all the control systems.
Many International or local Conflicts are Tribal Conflicts.
The highly needed Redistribution of the Wealth from the Rich to the Poor in the economy does not take place. The rich get Richer and the `Poor get Poorer.
2. Latour and the Parliament of Things:
The most interesting link in the initial blog is a Statement called How to Think as a Stateof the French Philosopher Bruno Latour to the WRR a Scientific advisoryBoard to the King of the Netherlands about the Future of the State.
In the PoT humans organisms, lakes, mountains cars and other things are represented.
PoT is a concept that questions the way we organize our State. It questions also what a representional democracy really represents. Does it represent all things that are born and die including the animals that have no language or is the system of representation a simulator that hides the Games we Play.
3. The State is an Ecology that is part of the World-System:
Latour gave me the idea that the State is an Ecology.
An Ecology is a Complex multi-layered RedistributionSystem that contains a wide array of interacting levels of organization spanning micro-level (e.g., cells, humans) to a planetary scale (e.g., biosphere).
If you want, replace in this definition the components of the Ecology with the components of the City or the State and see what you get. Do you miss something?.
If you look below at the pictures and read this you will see that the kondratiev-wave is in its 5th state with the color White and the subject Whole. The wave will be at its top around 2050.
The technology in this phase is called Global Brain. Gobal Brain has a lot to do with what now is called Artificial Intelligence (AI) and AI has a lot to with the Big Brother State that is now created in China.
The kondratiev Cycle is represented as a Spiral and is related to the Meta-Narrative (Chronotope) of Bahktin and PoC by their colors.
Blue is the color of the Law of Rome and Red is the color of he Actions of Alexander who conquered almost the complete World at his time. Yellow is the color of Spirit seen in The rise of Art in the Renaissance and the Rise of Christianity.
Green is the color of Social related to Social conflicts like the French Revolution. White is the color of the Center (The Whole) . White is always combined with a New World Religion. It could be related to the return of the Maitreaexpected in many Religions.
There have been three kinds of historical systems across human history: “mini-systems” or what anthropologists call bands, tribes, and small chiefdoms, and two types of world-systems, one that is politically unified and the other is not (single state world empires and multi-polity world economies). World-systems are larger, and are ethnically diverse. The modern world-system, a capitalist world-economy, is unique in being the first and only world-system, which emerged around 1450 to 1550, to have geographically expanded across the entire planet, by about 1900.
It is defined, as a world-economy, in having many political units tied together as an interstate system and through its division of labor based on capitalist enterprises.
The Tribes never leave their State even when the states have grown into very big structures.
In the current capitalistic system many “tribes” (for instance the Oligarchs of russia) use the income of the state they control to fight their battles. These battles are now mostly faught using highly intelligent technology and weapons.
Anti-Fragility happens when an Ecology moves Up (Revolt) to a New Fractal level. The opposite (Going Down) is called Remember. In this state the ecology saves some of its state in a place that acts as a Memory out of which o a Copy of the old state can be regenerated. This place is called a Sacred Grove.
A Sacred Grove is often a Sacred Place in a Wood. An example is the Cathedral of Chartres that was a sacred place for the Druids of the Celts.
In the UP-state The Ecology becomes Bigger and Slower in its Cyclic Frequency.
As a consequence of the periodic, but transient phases of Destruction (omega stage) and Reorganization (alpha stage), a system’s Structure and processes can be Reorganized.
This reshuffling allows for the establishment of new system configurations and opportunities for the incorporation of exotic and entirely novel entrants into the system. The adaptive cycle explicitly introduces mutations and rearrangements.
An Ecology is a Fractal CyclicAdaptiveInnovation System.
Panarchy is a conceptual framework created by Gunderson and Holling to account for the dual, and seemingly contradictory, characteristics of all complex systems – stability and change.
Panarchy is the study of how Economic growth and Human development depend on Biological ecosystems and Socialinstitutions, and how they interact.
It is an integrative framework, bringing together ecological,economic and social models of change and stability, to account for the complex interactions among both these different areas, and different scale levels.
“No system can be understood or managed by focusing on it at a single scale. All systems exist and function at multiple scales of space, time and social organization, and the interactions across scales are fundamentally important in determining the dynamics of the system at any particular focal scale. This interacting set of hierarchically structured scales has been termed a “panarchy” (Gunderson and Holling 2003).
Panarchy shows that a Government that wants to optimize the State seen as an ecology will end up with a Decay of this state.
The only thing that helps is not to interfere and follow the cycle, as you can see in the picture below where every step moves between opposites (“tensions, “polarities “).
The Chinese Five Element Cycle contains five Elements and many ways to connect the five elements (Nourishing, Controlling and Reductive). The Five Element cycle is a Four Elements Cycle with the Middle (the Center) included.
5. About the Roots of Panarchy: Cultural Theory:
The matrix pictured here, adapted from Michiel Schwarz and Michael Thompson (1990), is one presentation of a typology of worldviews called cultural theory.
It plots acceptance of social controls (on the vertical axis) and levels of social commitment (on the horizontal axis). In the quadrants, the worldviews or rationalities depicted are alternatively described as archetypes, ways of life, social solidarities, and myths or caricatures of nature.
“We postulate that these four ways of life are in conflict in every conceivable domain of social life,” write Michael Thompson and Marco Verwell (2004). “Each of the four ways of life consists of a specific way of structuring social relations and a supporting cast of particular beliefs, values, emotions, perceptions, and interests.”
“In the end, every type of social conflict is about types of organization,” writes anthropologist Mary Douglas (2006). “Why do we settle for four types? Because this model is at once parsimonious and it is comprehensive. A hundred, or a million, types of cultural bias may be out there. But for explanatory value three, four or five types of social environment are enough to generate three, four or five distinct cosmologies.”
“Each rationality will generate its own distinctive engineering aesthetic: its own definition of the good, the beautiful and the socially desirable,” write Schwarz and Thompson (1990). “Our concern, therefore, should not be with which one is right (for that would be to insist that just one rationality had access to ‘the truth’) but rather with which is appropriate to the task at hand.”
The Four Views of Fiske are Four World-views Viewing at the Social Worldview (also being the Emotions).
(1): Communal Sharing: This is a Social Social group. People live together and Share things. People are treated as equivalent and undifferentiated. “What’s mine is thine; what’s thine is mine”. Fairness is important in such groups and appealing to values may be the best way to persuade. Conflict may be dealt with through mediation and others methods that seek consensus.
The Sensory view on Social Fiske calls a (2):Market=Pricing-relationship. We call this a Company. or a Community of Practice. I have repeated the picture of the Sensory view below.
As you can see a City is an expansion of the Sensory (red) view when we see a City as an Actor or Organism.
(3): Equality Matching: Equality matched relationships generally collaborate around Shared goals and help one another. Relationships are reciprocal and have equal value. People treat fairly those who treat them fairly. See Tit-for-Tat as the solution of the Iterated Prisoners Dilemma.
4:Authority RankingSocial groups are arranged with a hierarchy of power. The top of the pyramid protects the lower layers.
Fiske found out that his Relational Models have a lot in common with the Scales used in Measurement Theory. We measure others the same way we measure objects and situations.
Scales are not only instruments to determine a Measurement-strategy. Scales are also ladders that bring you higher to get a better Point-of-View. This view is always blocked by the Horizon, the Point of Infinity.
The scales can be ordered in a cycle that looks like the cycle of Panarchy. The Scales and therefore the Social relations and therefore PoC and Panarchy can be related to four different Geometries.
Fiske and later Bolender found out “that there is a truly fundamental self-organizing physical process (symmetry braking) underlying social relationships that has hitherto been ignored,” They form a descending, nested series with successively fewer degrees of uniqueness (There are fewer ‘admissible’ transformations which preserve the same information).
Another explanation can be found in the spatial structure of the human body. In this context an important reference must be the work by Samuel Todes, especially his dissertation -published in 2001 by MIT Press and titled “Body and World.”.
7. Mapping the Fractal Model of Panarchy to Poc and Fiske:
The Cycles of Panarchy are fractal . They move with their own frequency. The scales are connected and Jumps Up (Revolt) and Down (Remember). Revolt looks like a Human Revolution Evolution in Biology and Anti-Fragile (being a state where the system changes and increases its Potential by being able to produce different (re)actions.
Panarchy is controlled by 3 Variables and moves in Time. This means that Panarchy is a 4D-Control feedback system. The variables are called Potential (Up/Down), Resilience (High/Low) and Connectedness (Communion, High/Low). Resilience looks like a Spring.
8. Constructal Law
9. Flow Systems States and Estuaries:
The Ancient States Egypt and Sumer were based on an ecology mostly situated at an Estuaryof of a Big River (Nile, Euphrate, Tigris) that ends in a sea.
The States got into big problems when the climate changed and raining stopped, the amount of sweet water went down in combination with the entering of salt water of the sea. This all destroyed the crops.
10.Harbours, the Silk Road and other Places of Exchange of Ideas:
Many old states were situated at an Entrance to the Sea (Harbour) to make Trade and Exchange of Ideas possible. Trade was also facilitated by being at an important node in a international trade route that crossed the Desert (The Silk Road).
The connection points were the point were Ideas, Philosophies and Theories were exchanged. The Harbors facilitated important Creative centers like Alexandria and Venice.
RandallCollins shows in his book Interacting Ritual Chains that Humans need the Entrainment of Special group Rituals to release Emotional Tensions. Successful rituals create symbols of group membership and pump up individuals with positive emotional energy.
12. Examples of A new Model of the State:
In this Chapter I put the models out of Chapter 1-12 in a special order in which the City or the State plays a central role.
The picture below shows a PoC-model with a pattern of a Moebius Ring.
The Moebius-ring (the number 8) is the model behind Panarchy. An ecology contains many connected 8’s. A connected Ecology could be called a Region.
The model contains the functions that can be found in a (big) city. The States grew out of Cities.
The second picture below the picture below is also a model of a (big) City . It contains the Social Networks described in Chapter 4 (About PoC) in the Center.
It also contains a Linear connected ValueChain I call a Value Cycle or a Value Network.
It also contains a Triangel with a Center that connects the many roles that could be implemented as a Monitor. A Monitor plays the role of the Observer,Consciousness. Its role is to Balance the Four Roles. In my opinion the State (or City) should play this role instead of playing the role of the Controller.
The patterns in this model you can seen at the right. They contain a Poc Cycle in a Poc Cycle containing many PoC-cycles that represent Humans.
The term Company (Red)Flow and Sensor represent Activities in the City represented as a Value Cycle. A Value Cycle is a Value Chain that is connected. Flow Systems are related to the rotation of the Earth connected to the Sun Cycle. A City is synchronizedto the Day and the Sun Cycle,.
Yellow (Idea, creative)/<-<Red (Sensing, Action) is called Inventive in PoC . Very important is the link Green (Social)<->Blue (Management, Control, Unity, Rules, Systems) ) that contains the term Building Value and the link Blue/Yelow (Inspire). It is the most important process that transforms resources (Value) into a Unity (Capital, Wealth,Potential) that is able to allocate the Creative Power (Spirit). Have a look again at how entrainment is used in combinations with Rituals.
The 3rd Picture shows a bigger picture where Types of Systems are related that are 2fold (Fragile), 4Fold (look like Organisms) and N-Fold (Anti-Fragile). They change in a way we call Evolution.
The interesting part of all the pictures is that they are all created by applying the fractal of PoC on PoC etc.
If The State is an Ecology we have to create a Multi-Layer nested PoC-model or start with a simple model (“a meta-fractal?) and make it more complex by combining more parts in different ways. The lowest level of this system has to be the human. The human is a moving-Ecology of Bacteria and Viruses.
The pictures below are explained in the chapters above.
Pictures come from Chapter 4 (About PoC): Also see this.
13. How to Design a State:
In this chapter we use the Development Proces-Model of PoC. The Arrows make it possible to create Many Different paths of Change..
Observe that Industry , Science, Market (see Polyani) and Media are part of the Model but that the Cross is not filled This place, the role of the Observer or Monitor could be taken by the Sate or the City.
14: Human Rights and Maslows Pyramid.
The ancient States grew out of Cities that where (re)Created close to the Sea by a group of People with a Bloodline (Kin(g) ) to a Godmade Human.
Human Rights (HR) have a lot in common with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. This means that HR have a lot in Common with PoC and therefore with Fiskes theory of Human Relations and Panarchy.
Human Rights are a product of an Utopian Movement that was motivated by many World Wars and Dictators that love to speak to their counterparts in the General Assembly of the UN.
Laws are a symbolic power enforced by the legal system that is enforced by a democracy, the power of the many that have no power against the smart weapons that are designed to give Big Brother its tools to control the minds.
A politics of human rights must transcend judges. History shows that movements relying on judges alone are weak. We need more power and the power can be found in the citizins that are also consumers. They can vote with their wealth but much netter with their Intelect.
15: The US is a Market Society: see Fiske Market Pricing Relationship.
16. The State as the Monitor of the Political Ecology:
In the following chapters I will create my preferred model of the State. To do this I will use the Building blocks that were created in the previous chapters.
About Alchemy and the Squaring of the Circle:
“When thou hast made the Quadrangle Round, Then is all the Secret found”. George Ripley (d.d. 1490).
I believe the State should play the role of Monitor also called Consciousness or Observer.
The monitor is in the Middle is connecting with the different Points of View making sure that the Whole is in Balance.
The monitor is without Judgement. Its only task is to Communicate.
When you look at Paths of Change you will see the big problem that arises when everybody enforces his own Personal View on the World.
It wil lead to a PermanentConflict in which certain parts Dominate other parts for a while claiming they are the Truth.
Every Point of View claims it has its own Right but blocks the view on the Whole for the others.
Without a view on the whole the parts become a whole leading to an explosion of Complexity.
Our body contains organs but the organs are not the controller of the Body.
Our Brain is not a computer that contains software-programs that are triggered by the sensors of the senses.
the Parts react to the signals of all the Other Parts.
The monitor collects and distributes these signals.
We are a Bodyfield that synchronizes with other fields.
When we look at the Path of the Hero (PoH, also called the monomyth) that was rediscovered by Joseph Campbell we learn that the adventure of life starts with a Calling (Event) to go on a Quest.
In this Quest we use the practises and talents we have aquired in our life.
During the Quest we meet a lot of Helpers (Community) that are motivated by the Quest. At a certain point we have to make a Choice (Priotize) where to go and find the Insight we need to go on.
This Insight is shared with the Community.
An Insight is a view of the inside. Our inside is a Body . Our Body is the Temple we live in.
The PoH is a combination of 2 triangels, the Analytic Cycle and the Value Cycle that share the connection between Vision & Practice called Invention.
The Quest proves what all the Alchemists knew when they had found the Stone that brings Eternal Life.
When the Alchemist closes the circle of the Four Worldviews the alchemist discovers that History repeats itself all the time.
When the monitor does not move all the Stages of the Cycle will appear time after time stage after stage until the cycle returns to the Moment of Conception.
a Natural Ecology stores the Seeds of its creation in a sacred Groove in the Woods, a Spiritual Ecology stores its Intelectual Seeds in the Collective Unconsciousness or in its Holy Books or in the Myths and Stories that are Retold (“Retelling = Reounting) all the time.
Acupuncture is part of the Chinese Medical (TCM) Tradition and the Indian Medical Tradition called Ayurveda.
The Chinese use Five Elements (Organs) related to the WOrldviews of PoC. Ayurveda uses the same Elements now called Tatvas .
The energy nodes are called Chakra‘s or Meridians. Meridians are paths through which the Life-Energy known as qi” f(or Prana) flows. Qi is the Electro-Magnetic-field that is caused by Moving Electrons in our blood.
The Chinese/Indian-system of medicine was known all over the world including the West. In the west the art of medicine was practiced by the Guild of the Barbers and Medical Doctors trained at the University. They used a Medical Theory that was based on Analogy (the Four Humors ).
Kim Veltman shows that the many cultures on earth use the same building blocks for already > 120.000 years. The building blocks were rearranged in different orders but on the deepest level they stayed the same. He also shows that old-myths are old histories that bring us back to the beginning. This beginning was paradise and paradise was a place where humans were confronted with many dilemma’s that have not changed because our body is not changed.
The Mandate of Heaven.
The Emperor is in Control until he Fails.
The Mandate of Heaven is a cyclic concept originating in the Zhou Dynasty from before 1000 B.C. which determines whether the emperor is sufficiently virtuous to rule.
The Zhou People worshiped a supreme deity, Tian, the name means “sky” and in English means “Heaven.”
tThe mandate is based on four principles: 1. The right to rule is granted by Heaven 2. There is only Heaven therefore there can only be one ruler 3. The right to rule is based on the virtue of the ruler 4. The right to rule is not limited to one dynasty.
The mandate is still believed by a majority of the people of China. This means that even the tribe of the Communist Party and its leader (a new type of Emperor) has to obey the rules.
The four pillars of the Mandate of Heaven demand that if the Emperor fails to fulfil his obligations to the people, then his Mandate and right to be ruler is over.
“Heaven” sends signs when the ruler’s day are done.
Disasters of nature such as floods, drought, famine and disease are signs that the Ruling Dynasty has lost Heaven’s Mandate to rule, and those happenings justify the people’s right to rebel against them under the four principles of the Mandate.
In centuries past, these signs from Heaven led to uprisings – 49 times in Chinese history – and a new Ruling Dynasty came to power, often from within the ranks of those who rebelled.
In ancient China the Emperor was responsible for the Balance/Harmony of the State. To balance the State the Emperor used the Sheng Cycle implemented in the practice of Sun Tzu.
This Practise can be used in Foreign Policy with the aim of Avoiding Conflicts (Diplomacy) but also in Fighting a War (Strategy). The chinese ruler used the strategy of Tit-for-Tat (Copying the behavior of the opponent).
A very small deviance of what was seen as not normal (a Rooster laying an egg) was seen as an indication that the Balance of the State was gone. It was the signal that big disasters were at hand.
At that moment the Emperor had to Balance the State by performing rituals and by taking action for instance by replacing the Governor of a Province where the imbalance took place.
The rituals of the Emperor focused the attention of the Citizens and this energy changed the course of the state.
The Emperor was responsible for Foreign Trade. Foreign Trade was necessary to introduce new ideas and technology and to find alleys.
Acupuncture: Diagnose & Treatment.
The generating cycle, , is a 1->1 relationship of nourishment and Support of one element by another. In the same way that a Mother nourishes her child, so does each of the elements nourish its “Child” element.
A Mother/Child-relationship is what we would call a Causal Relation in a predestinated order that is a Cycle.
The order is the order of the Sun Cycle in which order the seasons are also called organs.
The organs have a relationship with what we call the organs in the body but they are not matter but an Energy Pattern comparable with the Energy-patterns One Mae Who talks about in this blog.
The Controlling Cycle represents relationships which prevent any given element from becoming overwhelming or too powerful in relation to the system as a whole.
In terms of our family-relationships metaphor, it is the “grandmother” that exerts this healthy control over the “grandchild” element
In the West we name the Grandmother-relation a Feed-Forward of Feed-Backward-Relation.
The diagnosis is done at the Pulse. This is the place where all the Elements (Points of View)/Organs) get together. By pressing softly at the left or the right pulse a “Pattern” is felt that feels like a wave.
The pattern of the wave is an indication of the Harmony of the Body and the places where balancing is needed. Pressing simulates an Event. The “system” reacts with a reaction to an event.
The same happens when we create a very small Electro Magnetic Field . This event stimulates the Immune-System of the Body. The E/M-field is the Force of Life (Chi).
We could implement the same system by creating a monitor that samples data that represent the World-Views.
China and India are examples of cultures that used their knowledge and experience to manage society. They believed in Cycles and Harmony. The last Emperor was taken by the Mandate of Heaven and had to surrender to the new rulers of the communist party.
This is the end of this blog. In the last chapter (18) I will summarize and introduce a new step in my research.
18. The end
The State is at the End of its Lifecycle:
It started with isolated Hunter Gatherers that lived in Paradise.
They became a Tribe that settled down in a Proto-City.
The Yaminawá people in Brazil
When the Climate Changed the Tribes moved to the Caves.
In the caves the Humans discovered Total Darkness, the Light of the Imagination and translated Pictures into Sounds.
The proto-settlements turned into cities. One of the oldest is Jericho.
archaeologists have unearthed the remains of 20 successive settlements in Jericho, dating back 11,000 years.
The cities became City-states and because of the Distribution of Labor (mostly by Slaves) they were able to feed big Armies .
The Leaders of the settled tribes turned themselves into Gods and became Kin-g.
The city-states close to the Sea and the Silk-roads became Rich and Powerful and expanded into Countries.
The kin-gs united the City-States and The State was Born.
The Kin-gs became Pope or Emperor. All the time their Magical attributes and Supporters (the Tribes) did not change until the Slaves killed the Kin’gs.
Charlemagne united most of Western Europe for the first time since the Roman Empire, and spurred the Carolingian Renaissance. Sometimes called the ‘Father of Europe’.
The French Revolutionended the Power of the Kin’gs and of their Gods and created the concept of the Cooperative.
In the 18th century Rational Man, not God, got into the Centre.
The Scientists and Philosophers of the Enlightment were obsessed by Objectivity and Perfection.
In their view, Objectivity and Perfection can only be accomplished by controlling the subjective parts, the Emotions and the Imagination of the Human Being.
The subjective parts are part of the Body and the Body is Impulsive and Illusionary. The Warm Chaotic Sensual Body detracts the Cold Analytic Brain.
The Rationalists created the Corporations, the Mass Production System and the Mass Media. Every structure in the rational ecology is designed to perform its own Specialized task.
The Mass Media create the Demand for the Products that the Mass Production Systems have to deliver.
The Rationalists put the Brains at the Top of the Hierarchy of the Corporations and the Brain in the Operating System of the Computer.
They eliminated the Craftsman and the Laborers and replaced them with the Perfect always Obedient Objective Human, the Robot.
Rationalism is turning every local Diversity into a global Monoculture. Everything can be Quantified and Everything, even Life itself, can be Engineered (Bio-Engineering).
The Big Problems Earth is facing can be solved by new Technology and Enough Capital to Invest.
It is just a matter of Time and the totally Engineered World will be a Fact of Life. If Earth cannot be saved we will simply move into Space and find another Place to Live.
The Ecology of the State:
In this blog I try to show that we have to believe in Self-Regulation which means that the first step to create the State of the Future is to de-Regulate.
Self-regulation is A State without a Government (Anarchy) or ““an inclusive, universal system of governance in which all may participate meaningfully.” This could be a State as a Cooperative.
The theory of Pan–Anarchy. is “a conceptual framework to account for the dual, and seemingly contradictory, characteristics of all complex systems.”
Panarchy explains Ecologies by using a Taoistic view on the world. An ecology has a Yin and a Yang side or in terms of PoC it combines Agency (Yang, Unity, Order) and Communion (Yin, Cooperation). This order is a observed or Emergent order not an enforced order.
This order could result out of an Entrained System,
The four stages of the Adaptive Cycle are analogous to Birth, Growth, Maturation,Death and Renewal and have Three properties that determine the dynamic characteristics of each cycle:
(1) Potential sets the limits to what is Possible –
(2) Connectedness determines the degree to which a system can control its own destiny through Internal controls, as distinct from being influenced by External variables
(3) Resilience determines how Vulnerable a system is to unexpected disturbances.
A new Research-project.
The model below is a result of the research of Alan Fiske. See chapter 6. It relates the four geometries with four Social Relationshipsmodels of Fiske.
I have created a new blog for this chapter push here to go on.
A person’s happiness and satisfaction in life is a function of how he perceives work. People perceive their work in three general categories: jobs, careers, and vocation. People who perceive their work as a Vocation report the highest Satisfaction with Life in general.
A job is just a means of earning an income. When people have a job they look forward to breaks, quitting time, the weekend, holidays, and vacation. Outside of working hours, little or no thought, time, or energy is devoted to the work.
The word “vocation” comes from the Latin vocare, or voice – meaning to follow the voice of God, or to do what we are called to do. Young children know their calling but the System of Education and often their Parents make it very difficult for them to follow their Heart. The main reason is that schools and many parents limit the vision of the child to a specific Career.
The word “career‘ has its origins in the Latin word for a Race-Track. A career is a race and the sad thing is that in a race only one person wins and many lose. People become highly frustrated and demotivated when they realize that they will not win the career. When this happens their work changes into a job or they start to look for their real vocation.
The most important difference between a Vocation and a Job is Direct Feedback. When you are a Nurse the positive response of the patient is the reward you are looking for. When you are an Artist or a Craftsman the enthusiasm of your customers for your product is a stimulus to move on. It is not strange that people who are experiencing their work as a job spend a lot of time in contexts (e.g. a soccer-club) where direct feedback is happening.
During the Industrial Revolution work became dehumanized and compartmentalized. Every worker controlled a small part of the production chain and/or was totally controlled by the production chain. The Feedback between the Result of the Work and Work is almost completely disappeared. Humans need Feed-Back. This is the main reason why the Employees in a Burocratic Factory Organization consider the Manager of their Career, their Boss, as their most important Customer.
When you want to understand Your real Vocation You could visit a Vocational Psychologist.
The creation of Vocational Psychology is linked to the emergence of the large commercial cities in which the factory system changed the keystone of the economy from agriculture to manufacturing. The factories needed specialized workers to operate and maintain the machines. The factories were managed by the principles of Scientific Management developed by Frederick Winslow Taylor. Scientific Management, the extreme drive to work Efficiently, is still the driving force behind the Automation of Work.
During the Industrial Revolution many young man left the countryside and went to the big cities to find a job. They worked 10 to 12 hours a day, six days a week. Far from home and family, they lived and slept at the workplace. Outside the shop open sewers, pickpockets, thugs, beggars, drunks, lovers for hire and abandoned children created a non-secure environment.
The Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) was founded in London, England, on June 6, 1844.
The YMCA created Dormitories, Gyms, Swimming pools, Bowling Alleys, Meeting Halls, Employment Bureaus, Libraries, Psychological Tests, Training Courses and Vocational Guidance Programs for the workers in the factories.
One of the important products of the YMCA was the Find Yourself Program that was transformed into a book by C.C. Robinson in 1912.
General Electric, the major manufacturer of light bulbs, had preliminary evidence that better lighting of the work place improved worker productivity. In 1924 AT&T’s Western Electric Hawthorne plant located in Cicero, Illinois, was chosen as the laboratory. The scientists detected that work was not only a physiological activity. The huge interest of the management in the workers of the Hawthorne Plant simply increased their productivity. This was a break with the Scientific Management School that saw work productivity as “mechanical”, and led to the decision to learn more about the psychology and the personality of the worker.
John Holland began his career as classification interviewer for the Army. In 1959 he published his Theory of Vocational Choice, in which he first described Six Types of Vocational Personalities. In 1969, he and his colleagues at the American College Testing Program discovered that the Six Types fit a circular ordering of correlations called the Holland Hexagon. John Holland discovered that work is an Expression of the Personality.
Realistic people like well-ordered activities, or enjoy working with objects, tools, and machines.
Investigative people like activities that involve creative investigation of the world or nature.
Artistic people like unstructured activities, and enjoy using materials to create art.
Social people enjoy informing, training, developing, curing and enlightening others.
Enterprising people enjoy reaching organizational goals or achieving economic gain.
Conventional people enjoy manipulating data, record keeping, filing, reproducing materials, and organizing written or numerical data.
There is a strong relationship between the Holland Codes and other “circular” personality theories like the Enneagram, Myers-Briggs, The Big Five and the Worldviews of Will McWhinny. Statistical research shows that the spread between the different personality types is almost constant. Personality Types are also inherited from the parents.
Since the development of the Holland Hexagon in the seventies the statistics show a high stability in the nature of occupations. The often discussed dramatic shift in the nature of work is not apparent in these data. Although employment in the Investigative area, the Researchers, doubled over a period of 40 year it remained only 6% of employment. The Realistic Work Type, the Craftsman, has still the most occupational titles and the largest number of individuals employed. The Artistic Work Type (the Creators, 2%) has the fewest occupational titles and the fewest number employed.
What is Happening?
Work is an Expression of the Personality and the Personality is an Expression of the Work a person is Performing.
Personality Types and Work Types are distributed according to an almost constant distribution.
Personality Types and Work Types are inherited from the Parents.
The distribution is Not Without Any Sense.
There are Many Workers (Sheep) and just a few Shepherds needed.
Somebody has to Take Care of the Shepherds and the Sheep.
Somebody has to Keep the Books.
The Mythics, The Creators, The Artists, the Goats, Shape the Future but it takes a long time before the Sheep and the Shepherds follow the Creators.
The Creators (2%) are extremely Obstinate and Willfull. They want to take Care of Themselves, don’t accept any Leader or Helper, don’t care about Bookkeeping and Money and don’t want to Collaborate. They just want to find out Everything by Themselves.
The Creators are always remembered when they are dead.
The Hebrew belief system viewed Work, seen as Manual Labour, as a Curse devised by God to punish Adam and Eve when they sinned in the Garden of Eden.
Ponos is the Greek word for work, which originated from the Latin poena, meaning sorrow. At it’s core, work was associated with pain and drudgery. It was the divine punishment for man’s original sin and viewed as a necessary evil.
For the Greek and Romans and almost every other Ancient Culture, the Dirty, Manual, Work was to be done by the Slaves. Until Now nothing has really changed.
The only suitable occupation for a free man was Farming and Trade. Just like today the Greek and the Roman wanted to save their money to enjoy their retirement in their own Garden of Eden, the Country Side.
During the Medieval period, the feudal system was the dominant economic structure in Europe. People believed in Destiny and Predestination. At that time it was sinful to seek work outside the occupations Fathers passed on to their Sons.
Farmers turned into Farmers and Slaves became Slaves again.
During the 15th century the centralization of government, the growth of trade, and the establishment of economically powerful towns, destroyed the Feudal system.
In the 15th century the world climate started to change dramatically. Temperatures dropped and the Little Ice Age started. Before that time the nice climate caused an increase of the population by 25%-40%.
At the same time the economy was hit by a very high inflation (300-400%). This was caused by the import of large quantities of silver and gold from Mexico and Peru.
The unemployment rate rose to 20%. Many people moved to the Cities to find a decent job. The big cities could not provide employment and the poor immigrants turned into “lazy” beggars.
John Calvin (1509-1564) believed that only a few people, the Elect, were predestined to inherit Eternal Life. A lazy person, the beggar in his hometown Geneva, was certainly one of the Damned.
John Calvin believed that men were to reinvest the profits of their own labour into financing further ventures.
The Sons of the Fathers were obliged to find a better, more profitable, future outside the context of their father’s occupation.
Helping the Poor and the Sick violated God’s will since persons could only demonstrate that they were among the Elect through their Own Productive Labour.
The Protestant, Capitalistic, Work Ethic (Calvinism), spread throughout Europe and America through the Protestant Sects and turned into one of the most important Western Work Ethics.
The moral sanction to profit making through hard work, organization, and rational calculation generated numerous small enterprises all over the world.
Hard Work and Abstinence of Pleasure became the Work Ethic of Western Culture.
During the Industrial Revolution the Calvinistic Entrepeneurs made a Fatal Mistake. They adopted the Concept of the Mill and started to mechanize the Crafts and Agriculture.
The old Feudal System and Slavery was re-introduced. In the factories, Skills and Craftsmanship were replaced by Discipline and Anonymity.
The Human became a disposable part of a big structure. The foundation of Calvinism, the direct relationship between Hard Work and Personal Growth was broken.
The Local Enterprise could not compete with the efficient Factories and later their outlets the Supermarkets. The Farmers, the Craftsman and the owners of Small businesses were forced to work in the Factories.
Local Communities started to disintegrate.
Unemployement started to rise and again many people moved to the Big Cities to find a decent job. The beggars, the Damned, appeared again. History repeated itself.
The Factories created a new class of Slaves, The Proletariat. They organized themselves in the Unions and Political Parties. The Struggle of the Classes started.
The Owners of the Factories responded by creating Consumer Products and Mass Media to keep their new customers, the Blue Collar Worker, satisfied. The new industrial wave generated New Industrial activitity and New Jobs. The distance between work and the result of work widened.
In the late 1950’s the Factories needed more highly skilled “white collar” workers to program and manage their machines.
Later the machines were programmed by more advanced software until the Factories were transformed into almost fully automated Production-Lines.
The Blue Collar Worker left the Factory and History Repeated itself again.
Around 1980 the Programmers took over Control.
The Factories were connected into worldwide Value-Chains. The Logistic “just-in-time” Paradigm (SAP) became the Norm. The Industrial Logistic Paradigm is now implemented in the Services Industry.
The new White Collar Worker, the Knowlegde Worker, will also lose his job when their activities are fully standardized and their Company, the Advisory Bureau, is transformed into a Factory.
What nobody saw in 1980 is that the Rational System started to live its Own Life. Not the Programmers but the Program became the Manager of the Worldwide Economic System.
Even the Programmers themselves are now completely unaware of the total functionality of the System they have programmed.
An increasing amount of processes and therefore Human Activities is standardized and has been absorbed by the System. It is no longer true that producing more means working more or that producing more will lead to a better way of life.
Neither is it true any longer that the more each individual works, the better off everyone will be. The System no longer needs everyone to work and is bringing the Western World back to the state of the Garden of Eden.
The Calvinistic Work Ethic is still viable. When you don’t work you are damned. The amount of Work in Western Society is decreasing with the speed of Light and Governments are extremely focused to create new work. The only thing that is left is to create artificial work.
To accomplish this almost impossible task governments are now professionalizing and rationalizing almost every Social Activity (Child Care, Helping Your Neighbor, a Friendly Advice, Coaching, Taking Care of your Family, …). The Care Industry is Booming.
What Has Happened?
We are rationalising every Activity. The effect is an imcomprehensible reality. Something, the Computer, is taking care of us but we don’t know how She is operating and She is not communicating with us in our own language.
When she fails we don’t know what to do. We are totally dependent on a Highly Intelligent Cold Non-Human, an Autist. She was Programmed to be our Slave but she has turned into the Master of Our Destiny.
We are still not accustomed to a situation where something, a machine, is doing the dirty work. We are removing jobs with the millions but we believe we still have to work to aquire Eternal Life.
To preserve Employment we invent new jobs but we are also rationalizing the new jobs. The Cycle of the Creation and Destruction of Jobs is moving faster and faster and is generating a very high Stress on Society.
The affect of the huge tension to work is a total destruction of the social environment of the human being. Everybody is working 24 hours 7 days a week, has to spend all his time to find a job or has to educate himself to learn a new trade. Everytime the trade is aquired the Program changes and the employee has to start again to learn to operate a new piece of Software.
Mothers and Fathers are unable to take care of their Children. Children our unable to take care of their Parents when they are old. Everybody has to take care of himself and every service has be paid. The Social Cohesion of our Society is now at stake.
Not only the Social Cohesion is at stake but the Costs in the Care-Industry are Exploding and nobody knows how to solve this problem.
The only solution the Rationalist can imagine is to replace the Human by the Robot, the Always Obedient Slave.
Scientists are convinced there will be a time when the Robots will take over every job we can imagine. The Robots will not only take over the jobs but they will also Raise and Educate our Children, Take Care of the Old and even make it possible to Take Care of Robot Children and other Artificial Pets.
What to do?
We have to Accept that the Rational System will Take Care of Us. If this happens we have to leave behind the Calvinistic Work Ethic and Enjoy Life in the Artificial Garden of Eden.
We will live in a Artificial Reality created by the Simulator (the Matrix). If we want to stay out of this Artificial Garden of Eden we have to Stop the System and start to do the Dirty Work again.
We can also accept the machines and do the things humans were created for and become creators and caretakers ourselves..
Our skin, the sea, rivers and mountains are natural boundaries. They are just there.
The sexes, borders, the social classes, age, color of the skin and educational levels are Imaginary Boundaries.
They move in Space and Time.
They exist because Humans believe they exist. Boundaries are often created to Protect a Territory from an Outside Enemy.
When you want to create a Territory you have to Split a Whole and Surround the Piece of the Whole you want to Protect. When you are Self-Sufficient you don’t need the Outside. The Fence becomes a complete Closure.
When you have to cooperate with the Outsiders you need a Hole, a Gate, in the Boundary. The Gate is the most vulnerable part of the protective Wall. To avoid big trouble you have to Protect the Gate.
The Center of Power, the Palace, was always surrounded with a Wall and a Gate. The palace was protected by a Capital with a Wall and a Gate that was finally protected by natural or human made Boundaries (Walls, Fences, Stories, and Myths).
The Romans Emperors went even further to create and support “in-dependent” States that surrounded the Empire outside of its Frontier. The most impressive example of a protective system of Walls within Walls is the Chinese Wall.
When you are Outside the protective boundary you to have take care of yourself. To do this you need a Portable Personal Boundary (an Armour).
Of course the best way to solve your problem is to find help, create a new distinction (The Outsiders) and organize your own territory.
You can even do this when you are part of the territory of the Others by creating an Imaginary Boundary, a Culture. If you keep quiet “they” will accept you until you become a Threat. At that time comes you are caught within the Walls. A Protective Wall can suddenly turn into an Offensive Wall when you want to get out.
A Boundary is named a Set in Mathematics and a Container in Linguistics. When we cut a Set in two pieces (Sub-sets), the Boundary is shared. The boundary belongs to both sub-sets and therefore shares the properties of both Sets. When you split a Whole (1) in two parts four parts are created: the distinction, two parts and the Whole.
The Tao produced One; One produced Two; Two produced Three; Three produced All things (Lao Tsu,Tao Te Ching, 42).
The Boundary is not a part of the parts but it is a part of the Whole. When you investigate a Boundary you are able to find out what both sides of the equation shared before they were cut in to pieces. When we investigate the Reason behind a Boundary we are able to understand what happened a long time ago. When you combine all the Imaginary Boundaries you are able to detect the history of the spitting of the Whole of the Whole.
Two Bodies don’t share a boundary. Even when the Bodies are in close contact there is something in-between, the Skin. When the two bodies are in love, they are trying to find the closest contact that is possible.
Solid entities are unable to share a boundary. The best they can do is to create a close contact. Solid entities are their boundary. Your Body is what You are. Fluids and Gasses adjust to their Boundary. In a fluid and a gas we are still able to detect distinct entities (molecules).
In a fluid they are loosely connected. In a gas they are freely floating around. When you experience your Boundary as a solid, you are stuck. When you experience your Boundary as a Gas you have complete freedom to move.
It all depends on the Temperature of your Boundary. When you Interact with many People the Temperature will Rise. When you Isolate yourself the Temperature will Drop Down and your Boundary will turn into a Prison.
If we look at the history of the splitting process it looks like the wholes were splitted without any reason. It just happened. When we analyze the process a pattern emerges. This pattern is cyclic, leveled and self-referential. The process is almost invisible because every word (or name) we utter directs attention and carves out a portion of the world, a Boundary.
When we stop talking and erase the many imaginary named boundaries things become very clear. The world becomes just what it is.
When we use mathematics (no words, only symbols), things become much simpler (or more difficult for You).
Spencer Brown (About the Law of Forms) created a new Fundamental Mathematical Theory called Boundary Mathematics. In this theory he uses two concepts Empty Space, the Void, Non-Existence, and Boundaries or Distinctions. Boundaries are the result of a merger of boundaries or are created by splitting a higher level boundary.
When we split a boundary into two boundaries or merge two boundaries new forms are created. A splitted circle becomes two lines. A splitted Klein Bottle becomes two complementary Moebius Strips.
When we split the dimensions decrease. When we merge the dimensions increase. Merging and Splitting are fundamental forces of nature. When we split our possibilities decrease. When we merge our possibilities increase.
Two forms merge when they get into close contact (Communion, Love). A form splits when it is hit by another form (a Collision). When you cooperate the amount of opportunities will increase. When you compete the amount of opportunities will decrease.
When You create a Boundary there is always an Inside and an Outside. The Inside is the Indentity, You. The Outside are the Others. When we consider the Inside as the Protective Part, the Outside becomes its complement, a fearfull place. When we move Up and reflect we can see that there is no reason to fear the Outside. When we move Up we are always able to see the Whole. There is no need to create an Inside because of fear of the Outside.
When you want to leave the rotating Cycle (Torus) of everyday Life and move into a higher dimension (more possibilities, more perspectives), you have to Twist Yourself and Merge with Yourself. You Twist when you Cross the Cycle of Life and Enter the Cycle of Death. You Merge with Yourself when you integrate the Inside and the Outside, the Up and the Down, the Male and the Female.
“If we then become children, would we thus enter the kingdom?” Jesus said unto them, “When ye make the two one, and when you make the inside like unto the outside and the outside like unto the inside, and that which is above like unto that which is below, and when ye make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male no longer be male nor the female female; and when ye fashion eyes in place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will ye enter into the kingdom.” (Gospel of Thomas, Logion 22).
In the beginning was the Void. If was full of Potential, Closed in itself, Totally Aware, Nameless, just a Boundary. The first split was the creation of the split. The Split immediately created its complement, The Merge because the Void is the Union of Complements. The next split created the Inside and the Outside.
The Void retreated in the Outside, the Darkness of Darkness, and gave the Inside, the Protected Boundary, permission to split again and again and again knowing that it would finally return to the Outside. The Splitting and Merging (Communion) of a Boundary and the movement of the Protected Inside (Agency) to the Dark Outside are all part of one movement, the final return to the Void.
The Tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.
The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
You are protected by a personal boundary, Your Personality. The personality behaves in the same way as other Boundaries. You, Your Consciousness, is able to Commune (Split and Merge), move to the Inside (You) and the Outside (the Other).
When you Protect the Inside with an Armour you will always be Alone. To communicate you have to create a Hole, A Gate. You often look through this tiny Hole into the Dark Outside World hoping someone is there to help You.
What You don’t realize is that The One is always waiting in the Darkness of the Darkness to open the Gate to the Void that contains the Infinite Potential, that is You.
Banking originates around 3000 BC in Babylonia out of the activities of temples and palaces which provided safe places for the storage of valuables. Initially deposits of grain are accepted and later other goods including cattle, agricultural implements, and precious metals.
In a later stage Silver and Gold were used to pay. From that time on Silver and Gold became weapons of war and a good reason to fight a war.
By 700 BC, the Lydians became the first in the Western world to make coins. Countries were soon minting their own series of coins with specific values. Some of the earliest known paper money dates back to China, where the issue of paper money became common from about AD 960 onwards.
Paper currency and non-precious coinage was backed by a government or bank’s promise to exchange it for a certain amount of silver or gold.
The last innovation in Money is called Fiat-Money. In this case the currency is not backed by anything but the promise of a country to enforce payment. Fiat-Money is the ultimate money generator. Governments are able to create infinite amounts of value without any guarantee.
The only guarantee is the performance of the economic system of the Country itself and the Power of the Government to force their citizens to pay the neccesary taxes. The Fiat-System has created an enormous amount of hyperinflated countries.
The US is one of the countries where paying taxes is seen as a sin. The only way to gurantee the Fiat Money is to generate a high level of inflation and/or a tremendous debt. At this moment the US is the biggest debtor in the world and it is not capable to pay his debts. The US is completely broke.
The US Fiat-System is the real cause of the current wordwide crisis. If this problem is not solved in due time all economic activity in the World will come to an end.
We will experience the same situation that existed in Germany between the two world wars (the Weimar Republic) and in many other countries were the value of money became hyperinflated. As you will see later the US Government is not able to control their own money supply.
Thomas Jefferson the third President of the US knew what would happen when the Fiat-System would be introduced in the US. This was his warning:
”I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks]… will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. …The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs“.
The most important practice to cheat with coins was to alter the quality or the quantity of the precious metals by reducing the weight, mixing precious metals with other metals and/or covering cheap metals with precious metals.
When paper money was introduced it became much easier to cheat. Paper Notes were copied and the kings and governments started to play with the stock of gold and silver that was needed to back the paper notes.
The precious metals also became a very important instrument of warfare. When the amount of precious metals went down the Kings were unable to pay their soldiers and had to stop fighting. Another tactic was to generate inflation or deflation. The economy of the enemy could be destroyed by influencing the economic cycle by manipulating the amount of precious metals or banknotes.
Financial manipulation or Financial Warfare on every scale is as old as the civilized world.
Every country in the world is protecting its economy by intervening in the global currency market, the Foreign Exchange Market (FOREX). These interventions are performed by the Central Banks. Most of the Central Banks are controlled by Government. An exception is the US FED.
At this moment there are three groups of Central Banks, The US (Federal Reserve), The European Union (including the UK) and what I would call the China-connection. This last group contains Brasil, Russia, India (BRIC), and many more rising economies like Indonesia, South Africa and Turkey. The China Connection is becoming one of the most powerful groups.
The first central bank of Europe was created by the Knight Templars. The medieval European Knight Templar were a medieval military and religious Order which officially came to a controversial and mysterious end on Friday, 13 October 1307 when the Roman Catholic Church closed them down, accusing their leaders of heresy and strange religious beliefs.
During the era of the Crusades the Templars possessed a huge multi-national empire, and until their demise they were arguably the most powerful organization on Earth. According to popular theory, the Templars went underground and formed the secret society of the Freemasons to preserve their secret tradition.
There is evidence that the Templars were the carriers of old mystical knowlegde related to the Gnostics. This was perhaps the real reason why they were destroyed by the Roman Church who did not like the Gnostic (Kadištu) Believe System.
The Knight Templar ran probably the best known early prototype of a central banking system, as their promises to pay were widely regarded, and many regard their activities as having laid the basis for the modern banking system. By 1200 they were in effect bankers to the kings of England and France. They became so powerful that they had to be distroyed.
The oldest central bank in the world is the Riksbank in Sweden, which was opened in 1668 with help from Dutch businessmen. This was followed in 1694 by the Bank of England at the request of the government to help pay for a war.
The US Federal Reserve (FED) was created by the US Congress through the passing of the Glass Owen-Bill, signed by President Woodrow Wilson on December 23, 1913.
The history of the FED reads like a detective story. Eustace Mullins spend almost his whole life to find out what is really happening behind the closed doors of the FED. His book was never published. That’s why it is now available for free on the Internet. It shows how the Financial Elite of the US manipulated the citizens and representatives of the US to accept the Glass Owen-Bill. My advice: Read it!
The most important fact you have to know is that the FED is not an independent bank controlled by government. It is controlled by the big banks of the US and behind the big banks of the US is a powerful elite. This Elite created and sustained the Great Depression. It also supported the Klu Klux Clan and the Fascists regimes of Germany and Italy. The most important power behind them was the House of Rotchild situated in London. The old Financial Elite never lost its power.
If you search on the Internet you will find that Free Masons, The House of Rotchild and the Knight Templar are combined into a huge conspiracy theory that even goes back in history to the Annunaki of Sumer (The Serpents). I don’t think the Knight Templar and the Free Masons are part of this conspiracy.
I do believe the conspiracy (if it exists) has something to do with the Annunaki and their Ancestors. The Annunaki were experts in deceiving people and keeping control over them. They “hated” the Female Power and changed many myths that showed that this Power could create a Paradise if we wanted it. Their very long term plan was to obtain control over the World. It looks like they are succeeding. There all kind of conspiracy theories that are trying to prove that important “blood-lines” of the Elite are related to the Annunaki.
According to many Myths (Hopi, Gnostics) the “good ones”, the Life-Designers, the Kadištut, that are trying to help mankind are related to the Pleiades. The Pleiadians don’t want to interfere because interference in another civilization is forbidden. We have to ask them for help.
The theory behind Financial Manipulation and Financial Warfare is also a very old theory. It was practiced by all the old Kings. They knew that the control of the foundation of the Money System was crucial to stay in Power. They also knew that they could win a war by destroying the financial center of their enemies.
So everybody knows that when a small Elite in a huge Country has the power to issue money they are able to control the World. Everybody knows it is very difficult not to misuse a tremendous power (“absolute power corrupts absolutely”). That is why the Control of the Creation of Money has always been a central issue in many conflicts. In a democratic country this power is controlled by Government and Parliament.
The original members of the FED created and sustained the Great Depression. They must have been aware of the fact that they were destroying the economic system at that time. After the Great Depression they owned many companies and were in control of the media. This proves they knew how to make use of a chaotic, volatile, economic system.
The current members of the FED have created a new Great Depression. They were and are throwing trillions of dollars into the system increasing the debt of the US to a level never been seen. It will destroy the US Dollar and generate hyper-inflation. History shows that each time governments printed money in the past, the consequence was sky-high inflation.
The consequence is that the coming years, the prices of energy, food and metals will go through the roof. The US Citizen will become very poor but some people, the Elite, will get richer. The Story of the Great Depression is repeating itself and the strange thing is that everybody knew and knows why this is happening. Does that prove the Conspiracy Theories?
The new Depression will almost certainly lead to World Government. It is the only way to go they claim to stop the Depression. All the structures to enforce World Government are already in place and most of them are already in control of the Financial Elite. Does this prove the Conspiracy Theories?
The big question is if the “Chinese-connection” will accept this. If not we will see a huge conflict in the near future. It will certainly start with a “financial” attack. The Chinese could wreck the US Economy by disconnecting the Yuan from the Dollar and/or sell their $2 trillion worth of treasury bonds. You see Financial Warfare is easy and you don’t need very destructive weapons to do it. Will this lead to World War III?, also a prediction of the Conspiracy Theories.
At this moment many strange and unpredictable interventions can be seen related to the Dollar vs the Euro. The Dollar is rising steadily. The rise of the Dollar has nothing to do with the real value of the Dollar. The Dollar is related to the US Economy and this economy is going down and the backing of the Dollar is not there. The US Debt is gigantic and wil rise.
The effect of the rising dollar is positive for the export of the EU to the US. This will have a negative effect on the US Economy. The most interesting effect will come when the Dollar suddenly will move back to its original value. This will generate a new crisis within the European Banking System and of course the EU Economy. Is somebody planning a financial attack on the EU??
To prove the conspiracy we have to see who will be the owner of the most important companies and media after the crisis has stopped (if it can be stopped). If a certain group has taken over a lot of companies we will know that they have done it again. If we have finally proved the conspiracy theories we will be too late.
The proof of the pudding is always in the eating. When you read this article of the New York Times you will see that the big “take-over” has already started. The Big Banks are not using the money of the Government at all to help their poor customers. They are using it to buy other “small” banks. If you read the article in the NY Times the strategy becomes very clear. They, the Elite, want to create three colossal global financial giants—Citigroup, JP MorganChase and, of course, Paulson’s own Goldman Sachs.
Why are they creating these entities? The first reason is of course that it is much easier for a cartel to manage three parts. The second reason is that this cartel will be one of the richest and powerful kartels in the world.
What could be the aim? The aim could be to destroy their European and other Wordwide Competitors. They will be helped by their friends of the world’s largest financial credit rating agencies—Moody’s and Standard & Poors end will be able to use the biggest Economy in the World to do this. It will create a “little bit of a problem to some of the poor citizins” of the US during the time of the depression but in the long term they all will profit in some way because the Power of the US will be completely restored. The US will finally rule the World.
The big question is if the citizens of the US (and other Western Countries) will accept this to happen. If they accept it we will know for certain that the Mind Control Systems, also a part of the Big Conspiracy, have done their work properly.
History is repeating itself but on a much larger scale. If the Annunaki exist they will be very proud about what it is happening. Finally they will be the Masters of a devasteted World called Earth.
Do you believe in the Conspiracy Theory?
I really don’t want to believe the Theory. I don’t want to become a paranoid. Is there any Light at the end of the Tunnel? Obama? It certainly is Time for a Change! Will he succeed to stop the power of the FED? If he leaves them in power we will know for sure he is “one of them” or he is very afraid to stop them.
Why? One of the interesting stories behind the Conspiracy Theories is the fact that the Presidents (Kennedy, Lincoln) who wanted to change the center of the Financial System, The FED, were assassinated.
Education was and is mostly achieved by imitation. Humans are extremely qualified to copy the behavior of others. Therefore the best way to learn a trade is to copy the behavior of a qualified craftsman by serving as an apprentice.
The development of writing and book printing made it possible to distribute practical knowledge (experience) to many people. Later the practical skills were abstracted into theoretical knowledge.
The education of theoretical knowledge (Philosophy, Law and Rhetoric) and the expansion of this knowledge was the task of the Universities. They educated a very small part of the population (the Elite).
Our current education system dates back to the Industrial Revolution. At that time agricultural workers were needed to perform, repetitive, factory jobs.
The schools were organized as a production-line that produced high quality (tested) products that were assembled according to the specifications (the Curriculum) of the Factory-owners.
The School Factory-Model is still operating but the Factory-owners don’t need the workers anymore. They are transformed into Robots. The Factories moved up in abstraction. To find a decent job workers also have to move up in abstraction. Every time when the Factory Schooling System has adopted its curriculum the outside world has moved up again.
When a School moves up in abstraction it moves to another level in the Schooling Hierarchy.
The schools of lower education are not able to move up because they have to serve the children who are unable to abstract. The distance between the lower and higher levels is growing with an increasing speed.
When we look at the Cycle of Education it is very clear that we have to reuse an old model in a new infrastructure to solve this problem.
The new infrastructure is the Internet. So the new way to support apprentices is E-Learning. The Internet can be seen in many ways but the most interesting way is the Social Perspective.
The Internet is a collaboration system. The Masters (and the apprentices) were organized in (local) Guilds. The Guilds took care of many things. They organized insurance, shared their secret practices and took care for the old. At this moment Guilds are called Communities of Practice.
What kind of E-Learning?
What is Just-in-Time E-Learning?
Just-in-Time E-Learning is Learning when you are facing a problem.
Learning starts when your Expectation Fails. When your Expectation Fails you have to find a solution. When you are unable to find a solution you have alreadySearchedfor alternatives so you are open to hear the right answer (Problem Solving).
When you are open to hear the right answer you are Focused. When you are focused you are in the Right Mood to learn (Motivation).
When you finally have formulated the right question you know the right answer (Socratic Learning).
When you are an apprentice you ask Your Master to Help. When your master is unable to give the right answer the “computer” will provide you with the right answer (Help-Systems, Wiki).
How do you design a Just-in-Time E-Learning System?
You have to Interview the Masters to find out what their Expectation-Failures were. When you transform the failures in rules you have created an Expert-System or a Diagnostic System.
Let’s have a look at the Future of Automobiles.
Over the last 30 years, the amount of computer-based technology – compared with mechanical systems – making up the average car has increased from nothing to more than 45 per cent. And this rise is showing no signs of slowing down. To cope with this, the role of the mechanic has evolved from mechanical repair to one that is highly technological. As technology continues to evolve, they must learn continuously to keep up with new developments.
Using highly specialized diagnostic equipment, technicians are able to monitor and diagnose key areas of a vehicle to ensure they are working correctly, from engines to exhaust emission levels.
Many provide automatic updates to technical manuals and access to manufacturers’ service information, keeping technicians up-to-date on new developments. But it’s not just a simple process of plugging a car into a diagnostic unit. If the wrong data is applied, serious damage could be done to a very expensive vehicle.
It is necessary to study Computer-Technology to Maintain a Car?
I don’t think so.
It is necessary to study Automotive-Technology to Maintain a Car?
I don’t think so. When you know how to operate the diagnostic tools you are able to fix a car.
Now we have reached the most interesting part.
When we combine Just-in-Time Learning with the Tools that are available to Diagnose a car we have created a highly effective Learning Environment.
When a mechanic diagnosis a car-failure he/she can ask Question like How (Is Motor working?), Why (Is Motor producing Rotational Energy?), What (is Motor?) or What is Happening?.
Who is Developing Learning Environments in the Car Industry?
The developers of Educational Just-in-Time E-Learning Tools are not situated in the Factory School anymore.
The Educational Tools are developed by the Manufacturers of the Cars! The Makers of the Tools you Use Are the Developers of the Educational Tools to work with the Tools. The only thing they have to is to make them Self-Explaining!
The Tools have to Understand Them Selves.
Do While Everybody Working:
It is possible to Maintain Your Own Car?
In a few years time this will be possible when you buy a new car.
At that moment the mechanics are only useful to maintain the old cars.
But it is not very difficult to develop a (Semantic) Model of an Old Cars also.
How Long will this Take?
The tools are already there the big problem (as usual) is the Schooling System Itself.
Will the Educational Factory Adopt itself to the new Situation?
It is very difficult to Change Yourself.
What the Educational System needs is an Huge Expectation Failure.
What could this Failure Be?
The Government will stop funding the System.
Will that Ever Happen?
What the Government needs is a Huge Expectation Failure.
Will that Ever Happen?
It will happen when The Citizens will stop funding the Government.
Will that Ever Happen?
It will happen when most of the Citizins will be out of Work.
Will that ever Happen?
It will happen when You are able to Do Everything Your Self.
One of the most influential inventors of our time was Nikola Tesla (1856-1943). He was specialized in “Electro-Magnetic Inventions“.
Tesla became a myth. He became a myth because he was not a “normal” inventor.
Tesla saw his inventions in his mind. He not only saw them he could even play with them in his mind to improve the design.
Tesla invented normal inventions but when the normal inventions were created he started to create abnormal and even absurd inventions.
He became the prototype of the “mad scientist“.
His main objective was to give mankind the opportunity to become God, The Creator.
This a part of a letter to the New York Times that Tesla wrote in 1908. If you read this Letter carefully you will see that Tesla has discovered the Source of Creation, The AEther.
“According to an adopted theory, every ponderable atom is differentiated from a tenuous fluid, filling all space merely by spinning motion, as a whirl of water in a calm lake. By being set in movement this fluid, the ether, becomes gross matter. Its movement arrested, the primary substance reverts to its normal state. It appears, then, possible for man through harnessed energy of the medium and suitable agencies for starting and stopping ether whirls to cause matter to form and disappear. At his command, almost without effort on his part, old worlds would vanish and new ones would spring into being. He could alter the size of this planet, control its seasons, adjust its distance from the sun, guide it on its eternal journey along any path he might choose, through the depths of the universe. He could make planets collide and produce his suns and stars, his heat and light; he could originate life in all its infinite forms. To cause at will the birth and death of matter would be man’s grandest deed, which would give him the mastery of physical creation, make him fulfill his ultimate destiny.”
I want to focus this blog on one highly mythical story in the Life of Tesla. In this Story another “mad scientist” named John von Neumann appears.
The story reads like a science fiction book but many parts of the story are factual and even the facts are disturbing enough.
At a certain moment Tesla claimed a few things. He claimed he could create the “Weapon of all Weapons“. This Weapon would end All Wars. Tesla also claimed he could talk with extra terrestrials by an invention called the Teslascope. Later he claimed he could create Invisibility. Tesla claimed much more. When he was eighty-one, Tesla claimed he had completed a dynamic theory of gravity with this theory he could create anti-gravity.
The claims of Tesla about New Weapons, Invisibility, Anti-Gravity and even Time Travel attracted the US Army. The first goal was to create an invisible ship. In the experiment he would be collaborating with John von Neumann.
John von Neumann was a mathematical genius. Just like Tesla he was not a “social person”.
Von Neumann was the man behind the first computer (the Enniac), the Atomic Bomb and the H-Bomb. He was also highly infuencial in the field of Quantum Mechanics.
John von Neumann believed he could calculate everything. He believed that he could create an Artificial Mind. When he could connect this Artificial Mind to The Force of Creation he could create completely new things. He knew Tesla could help him to reach his goal.
In 1940 a full test was done in the Brooklyn Naval Yard. It was a small test, with no one on board the vehicle. By 1941 a ship was procured to do a full experiment.
Tesla knew that the mental state and bodies of the crew would be affected severely. He wanted more time to perfect the experiment. Von Neumann disagreed and the experiment was performed with a crew on board. Tesla left the project.
The result of all this became a legend called the Philadelphia Experiment. Tesla was right. He was right because Tesla always used his own body and mind in his own experiments.
The physiological effects on the crew were profound. Almost all of the crew were violently ill. They experienced tremors and other distortions of the neurological system.
Some suffered from mental illness as a result of their experience; behavior consistent with Psychosis is described in other accounts. Still other members were physically unaccounted for. They simply vanished and came back later in time.
Five of the crew were allegedly fused to the metal bulkhead or deck of the ship. Still others were said to fade in and out of sight. All of the crew-members experienced Time-Travel.
Later the project was transferred to Montauk. John Von Neumann became the manager. In the Montauk Project he wanted to create a Mind Amplifier.
The Legend tells us that he was able to do this. What von Neumann did not realize was that the Amplifier created a Hole in Time (a Portal, a Wormhole) and this portal was a Two-Way-Street. Others, Extra Terrestials, used the Hole to enter our Universe.
The story of Montauk reads like a science-fiction story and it inspired many Books and Movies.
Later the projects changed names (Phoenix, MKULTRA).
Everything connected to the Philadelphia Experiment, the Montauk Experiment and other Strange and Dangerous experiments is denied by the American Government.
The American Government was at that time controlled by Congress and Congress organized hearings. One of the most intensive research programs was performed by the Church Committee. It proved that the Army and the Intelligence Services violated many laws.
Many people don’t trust the Army. If you search the Internet it contains thousands of websites that contain facts and interpretations of the facts. Almost nobody believes the Government is telling the Truth. This is a very BAD SIGN. It decreases the believe in Government and its Actions to serve the Citizens.
People don’t trust the Army and the Government because every time when its actions are researched by Parliament many illegal activities are proved. They have aquired the expectation that the Government is always hiding something.
Because they don’t know the “real” facts they create their own theories (Myths). Many of these Myths are about Conspiracies. Somewhere behind the Government is an Evil Force trying to Control Everybody.
If you look at the major priorities at this moment (Mind Control) it is very difficult not to believe in a Conspiracy to Control Everybody.
The Army has developed neural implants to control the behavior of humans. The implants give direct input into the brain and make it possible for a Central Command Center to manage the behavior of soldiers. They are also used to control the behavior of animals (Sharks).
John Norseen, one of scientists cited in the document shows the long term perspective. “If this research pans out you can begin to manipulate what someone is thinking even before they know it.” He is like John von Neumann not interested in Ethics. He is certainly not a “mad” scientist – just a dedicated one. “The ethics don’t concern me,” he says, “they should concern someone else”
The discovery of Bahktin started with a book about Bahktin by Saul Morson & Caryl Emerson. Later I also read many other books and articles like “The dialogical imagination”, “Towards a philosophy of the act”, “Discourse in the Novel”, “Rabelais and His World”, “Problems of Dostoevsky’s Poetics” and “Speech Genres and Other Late Essays”.
Bahktin invented the term Chronotope, “The place where the knots of narrative are tied” or “the intrinsic connectedness of temporal and spatial relationships that are artistically expressed in literature“. Currently we use the term Content or Media for Literature.
A Chronotope is a Topological Concept
Space (Place, Location) and Time (the narrative) are connected by a Knot. A knot is a complicated twist in a rope. The twist is needed when you want to close a system in itself. The simplest topological structure that visualizes twisted space/time is the Moebius Ring.
The Chronotope is the Centre out of which every narrative that we are able to tell is enfolding and unfolding. It produces narratives and absorbs narratives. Bahktin places Folk-Lore, Myth, the Language of the People, in the Centre.
Every narrative contains a twist, a moment where the expansion of the beginning turns to the contraction of the end. It is the moment where the narrative is balanced. The reader holds his breath. It is also the moment where the narrative is aware of itself. It observes the whole.
Sometimes the twist is in the end. You know “who done it”. Sometimes the narrative starts with the twist. There are even narratives without a twist. You know all the time what will happen.
Scientists don’t realize that a scientific article is also a narrative. They use citation to prove they are telling a true story. Funny enough scientific citation has created the Internet. A hypertext is nothing but a citation-structure.
Old narratives produce new narratives. This is always accomplished by Citation. “The word in language is half someone else’s. It becomes “one’s own” only when the speaker populates it with his own intention, his own accent, when he appropriates the word, adapting it to his own semantic and expressive intention. Prior to this moment of appropriation, the word does not exist in a neutral and impersonal language. . . but rather it exists in other people’s mouths, in other people’s contexts, serving other people’s intentions: it is from there that one must take the word, and make it one’s own“”. The cursive sentence between brackets is a citation of Bahktin.
New narratives also oppose old narratives. They are Dialogic. “The entire life of language, in any area of its use . . . is permeated with dialogic relationships“.
Dialogues are converging (Socratic dialogue),diverging and conflicting (Menippian Dialogue) or one sided (the Magisterial Monologue). “Thus at any given moment of its historical existence, language is heteroglot from top to bottom: it represents the co-existence of socio-ideological contradictions between the present and the past, between differing epochs of the past, between different socio-ideological groups in the present, between tendencies, schools, circles and so forth”
The Centre generates new narratives all the time. They are a mix of the old and the new. The centre is the Centrifugal Force and this force is powered by Contradiction.
The Institutions, the Ruling Power, are constantly trying to standardize (the Centripetal force). They formulate rules and try to transform the dialogue into a monologue.
The centripetal and the centrifugal force create a huge tension. This tension moves the Wheel of Creation. The wheel always moves through the stages of Order and Chaos. In the middle of the Tornado of Creation is the Centre, the Chronotope. In the centre you will always find rest and inspiration.
The monologue (the magisterial dialogue) is the dialogue of the Magister, the scientist, the manager, the judge, the physician and the teacher. They use science, the law, books or other Magisters to enforce their power. By formulating rules they try to destroy the creative centre (the context).
“A context is potentially unfinalized; a code must be finalized. A code is only a technical means of transmitting information; it does not have cognitive, creative significance. Code is deliberately killed context“.
At this moment the Centripetal force is implemented in the Search Engine. Narratives are found by typing codes. This makes it very difficult to find a context. Companies like Google are manipulating the coding. They are paid by the Centripetal Force of the Commercial Companies.
The centrifugal force is never at rest. It always generates new alternatives. The creation of new literature is not bounded by rules. Every time a new structure is defined the Centre starts to play with the rules and generates a new combination. The Centre is not only combining rules it even invents new rules. The Centre is the inventor of new Games to Play.
Producing literature is a process of spiralling out. It follows a cycle but at a certain point in time a new Centre appears and the Cycle starts a new process of Folk-lore. The new centre is always connected to the old Centre. New myths and new fairy tales are created that are a representation of the Spirit of the Time.
Every cycle is governed by a Clock. The periodicity of the Clocks is determinated by the number five. It runs at a frequency of 1250, 250, 50, 10 or 2 years. There are frequencies that are moving faster (the Atom) and much slower (the Universe).
Bahktin has developed a very interesting theory about the development of the Chronotopes in history.
I will tell the Tale of the Chronotopes of Bahktin on the level of the Cycle of Culture (1250 years, 250 years per stage).
Between 450 and 700 the Roman Empire is destroyed by the Huns. It is the time of the Great Deportations. People out of Asia move to the West. They are the ancestors of the Ostrogotes, the Visigotes, the Franks, the Gauls, the Germans and the Celts. 1250 years later they are integrated in what we now call Europe. Between 700 and 2000 the Europeans explore and conquer the World.
Around 1200 the new powers have created many Kingdoms and have organized the Crusades to conquer the Holy Land. To show their power they build the Cathedrals. The Cathedrals are the instrument of the Education of the Masses. The old folk-lore is transformed to the new of the Christian Faith. The old-folklore is not destroyed. Many symbols and important events are preserved. They are cited. The transition of the Sun in Winter is transformed in Christmas. The new apostles are connected to the old animals of the old Wheel of Fortune.
Between 1200 and 1450 the Chronotope of the Greek Romance (Tristan and Isolde, Arthur and The Grail) appears. It is the Chronotope of Being and Destiny. “There are a lot of suddenly’s”. Everything happens. The actor in this Chronotope is without identity. He is tested by destiny. When he has passed the test he is not changed. There is no time and space. Time (“adventure-time”) is reversible. The actors are public figures and space is public space. In the narratives we are able to see and hear everything.
We are in the Middle Ages. In the outside world destiny is also playing its evil game. Western Civilization is almost destroyed by the plague, feminine and wars between the Kingdoms. Even the Christian Empire of Rome is divided by a schism (Byzantium). At the end only a few Kingdoms survive. These Kings become Emperors. They represent God on Earth.
This (1450-1700) is the time of the Chronotope of the Adventure. It is the Chronotope of Becoming. The identity of the actor is transforming. He is responsible for his own actions. Life is full of turning points (twists). The actor wants to take control of the outside world. Space becomes “private space”.
To give the reader insight in what is happening the Observer is introduced. He is a voyeur, a prostitute, a rambler, a rover, a tramp, a spy, a servant or an animal. The observer is not influencing the story at all. He is just watching. Objectivity is also introduced in space (court).
In the outside world we are in the Time of Renaissance (the Era of Discovery). It is the time of new inventions in Science (Copernicus), Art (Leonard Da Vinci) and Religion (Reformation, Luther, Calvin). The Bible is translated in the language of the people. It is also the time of the Great Explorations (Columbus) of the world outside the West. Western Culture starts his quest to control Nature and eventually the World.
The next Chronotope is the Biography (1700-1950), the praise of a public figure who has accomplished something in life. We are moving from the outside world to the inside world of the actor.
Inner space is closed. “This offers a new relationship to one’s own self, one’s own particular “I”- with no witnesses, without any concessions to the voice of a “third person“.
Outside events affect the inner world. The actor is not showing this. In the outside world the actor is judged by his actions and not by his inner space (his essence). “The essence of man is realized not by his condition but by his activity“.
To give the reader a view on the inner space the outsider is introduced. His outside actions are governed by a distorted inner space. The outsider (the fool, the eccentric) acts as a reference.
The actor is a pretender. He is constantly in doubt, grumbling, cynical and sarcastic. He is also passive. He is watching from a distance. Everything is Relative (Bahktin was a fan of Einstein). The only time when the actor is able to show himself is at the carnival. During this short period he is allowed to choose his own mask.
This is the time of the Industrial Revolution. It is the era of mechanization. It starts with the invention of the Mill and the Factory. It ends with the mechanized Consumer watching Television.
Starting in 1950 we are again in the phase of Folk-lore. Western Civilization is moving to a new Centre, Earth.
New myths and legends will be created. They have to be based on all the tales, myths and legends that are available on Earth. Some of them will be a citation. Others will be an opposition.
All kinds of dialogues will take and have to take place. We will experience many conflicts (Mennipian Dialogue). We will also have to listen and ask questions to understand the other cultures (Socratic Dialogue). We have to stop our Western Magisterial Monologue.
In the beginning it will be a Heteroglossia (a many voicedness), a very complicated Knot we have to untie. When we have found the tread we will be able to weave a new web of narratives that will start the phase of the Greek Romance again.
Between now and 2100 “We must make the new by our own effort”.“We have to face problems of reality and human potential, problems of freedom and necessity, and the problem of creative initiative“. We have to become persons “who emerge along with the world and reflect the historical emergence of the world itself”.
“In order to understand, it is immensely important for the person who understands to be located outside the object of his or her creative understanding — in time, in space, in culture. . . . Our real exterior can be seen and understood only by other people, because they are located outside us in space and because they are others”
We have to write our own Novel. “There is no causality in novels, no genesis, no explanations based on the past, on the influences of the environment or of upbringing and so forth. Every act a character commits is in the present, and in this sense is not predetermined”.
We have to act without hesitation and leave history behind. There is no experience we can reuse. The future is unfinalized (open).
The Magisters are not able to tell us what to do. They are out of tricks. We have to put off our own masks and take responsibility for what we are doing. “There is no alibi for being”. We have to stop pretending and use citations of others to prove we are right.
We are now part of the Worldwide Carnival of Fools. Choose your mask out of the many masks that are available all over the world. Listen to the stories of other cultures and be surprised about the beauty and the experience they are containing. Give the Fools and the Eccentrics, the Outsiders, a chance to help you.
It will be fun.
I want to close with a citation of Paul Feyerabend (Killing Time (1995)): “People, intellectuals especially, seem unable to be content with a little more freedom, a little more happiness, a little more light. Perceiving a small advantage, they seize it, circumscribe it, nail it down, and in this way prepare a New Age of ignorance, darkness and slavery. It is rather surprising that there are still people who want to help others for personal reasons, because they are kindhearted and because they have not been intimidated by principles. It is even more surprising that some of the people can work in institutions despite the greed, the incompetence, the power struggles that seem to surround the noblest cause.”
Do you want to know more about Feyerabend read The Act of Creation: About Fusion and Con-fusion
Will was an expert in the myths and culture of the Ancient Tribes that lived in the Four Corners-area of New Mexico. Every year he organized a seminar in the Ghost Range for his ex-PHD-students. I visited many of his seminars and fell in love with New Mexico and the ancient cultures (Hopi!) that live in this area.
Will tried to write a second book called Grammars of Engagement. The book is about Coupling or Entrainment. For about ten years we discussed many of his ideas.
Unfortunately his book was never finished. The reason it was never finished can be found in Paths of Change. Will was not able to apply his own theory. Strangely enough this proves his theory.
Let me try to explain the theory of Will. The theory of Will is based on his reflection about the Practice of Change.
He did not write the book alone. He discussed his intuition with all his colleagues of UCLA (University of Los Angeles).
What they wanted to resolve was a very strange pattern behind the failures of Personal and Organizational Change.
Will and his colleagues found out that the explanation was simple. Human beings don’t think the same. They are unaware of this. Almost everybody is convinced that all humans think the same. This is the main reason why many people don’t believe the theory of Will. This again proves the theory.
Will discovered four basic ways to think. He named them Mythic, Social, Unity and Sensory. The four ways are completely independent.
The consequence of Path of Change is that You reader when you are not of my world will read this article and think you understand what I am trying to say but in reality you understand something else.
When I meet you you will prove this when I ask you to explain what you think I am trying to say. The only way to explain the theory is to detect your worldview and use your language to tell the same thing.
When I do that you will think I am explaining a different theory. Probably you will ask me why I have changed my point of view (= world-view) and I have to explain you in your language that I did not do that. This will cause the same problem. You will think I am inconsistent.
When you are living in a world with only one world view you are according to all the Best Practises in Mental Ilness (Interpersonal Theory) highly disturbed.
Many people are able to think in two world views. They are able to switch from one world view to the other.
The amount of different combinations of Two of the Four Worldviews is Twelve (4×4 = 16 but 4 are the same x the same = the same -> 16-4 = 12). Will named the 12 Duals Games but you can also call them Apostles (with Jezus at the Center 12+1 = 13), Knights (of the Round Table with Arhur at the Center) or Constellations (of the Zodiac with the Sun at the Center).
Some people are able to switch to all of the world views. When you are able to switch to the worldview of the other you are able to explain the same thing differently. You are able to look at the world with a shared view.
When both our worldviews are the same we will agree on everything but both of us will not see the others. This is the main reason why people with shared worldviews join in all kinds of cooperation’s. They join because they need a secure place that shields them from the strange outside world.
It is also the reason why people with different world-views leave a cooperation in due time. They feel the others don’t understand them. Clusters of shared world-views become highly inflexible when the outside world changes.
When you are a Sensory you will say “what I read until now is highly theoretical. I want to see facts and prove. Is the theory of Will tested?”.
Although Path of Change is Best Practice you will not accept what he is writing. You want to experience the theory yourself and perhaps 20 years later you will write a book telling the same thing. You will write a book full of examples because you love examples. You will be convinced it is telling something very different Will was telling. Happily Will has also written a book that uses examples and cases to help You.
When you are a Social you want to know the opinions of important social scientists and others you feel are of importance. You believe important people are telling important things and you have never heard of McWhinney so his theory is not important to know.
When you are a Unity you want to know the Rules. You want to be told what to do and most of the time you do what the Rules tell you to do. The book Will has written is without Rules it contains concepts and ideas. You think concepts and ideas are not concrete. You even don’t like some of his concepts because they are not according to the concepts you think are true. They are violating your System of Thought. You believe in absolute truth.
When you are a Mythic you believe everything is possible. Life is full of opportunities. You generate ideas and concepts all the time. A Mythic creates his own unique theory and his theory is really a theory about himself. A Mythic is unaware of this. To become aware of this he has to face the facts. He needs to switch to a Sensory world view or accept the view of an other who is able to see the world this way. This is very difficult for a Mythic because a Mythic is very Will-full.
A Mythic is convinced he is the only person who understands the World and some day the World will understand what a genius he is. This will never happen when he is alive. Mythics become a Myth when they are dead.
A Mythic is also an artist. He produces paintings, poems and even theory but his theory is mostly incomprehensible for others just like poetry.
Only Mythics understand Mythics. They feel the Field of Meaning. A Mythic does not understand that the others don’t understand him because his poetry is `the way it is`. It tells everything there is to say.
Will’s basic patterns were Mythic and Social. He was also able to switch to Unity. His blind spot was Sensory. Although many people were very enthusiastic about his book he did not see the facts about his success.
As a Social he focused on the recognition of important social scientists. At the end of his life he was very sad about this. As a Mythic he was convinced his theory was simple and easy to understand. This created even more sadness. Sadness and depressions are the mental illnesses when a Social becomes too Social.
Why was Will unable to finish his book? A Mythic is a highly creative person. He was constantly generating new ideas and concepts. The book was changing and changing and changing because Will wanted to create the perfect book about Engagement. Every version of the book he created was a jewel of poetry and insight. Will wanted to create the perfect book and striving to perfection is again an act of a Mythic. Will was falling in the trap of his own world-view.
What Will also did not realize that he was really writing to understand himself. Path of Change and Grammars of Engagement were a personal quest to understand the real Will McWhinney.
In the last year of his life somebody asked him to write his life-story. He tried to do this. He became aware of the fact that his whole life was centered around one personal quest. He wanted to find harmony. He never found harmony because a Mythic is on a Quest and the Quest never stops because every time when he has found the Grale he will start to look for a new Grale.
In Grammars of Engagement he started to write about Harmony.
A few citations out of his unpublished manuscript:
“All communication arises through coupling. All communications are dances that coordinate the rhythmic processes shared among the engaging systems“
“Communication is not a transmission of information, but rather a coordination of behavior among living organisms through mutual structural coupling. Coupling, the instrument of coordination, is established by the physics of exchange and by traditions that associate both human relations and communications with music: harmony, rhythm, tone and tune”.
‘Just right’ communication work because it allows systems to exchange energy, thus information, through entrainment. They dance to a just right message. The communication follows from exchanges that take place as the systems draw each other toward a common resonant mode. Systems communicate in the process of being more similar, approaching a harmonious state at least in the domain of the communication. Entrainment stops short of perfect harmony. With perfect harmony there is no exchange. ‘Just right’ is becoming close to harmonizing”.
What Will is describing is a dialogue. Will was always playing with his own thoughts. He was busy with an internal dialogue called Reflexion. Intense reflexion is a Mythic Process. When you only talk with Your Self there will be no difference. You are similar with yourself and the internal dialogue stops. You are in harmony.
To make a difference you have to introduce others like your wife or your mother. People talk internally and externally with many voices. Most of them do this without noticing. They are not aware of the many personalities they are. They are not similar to themselves and therefore “out of balance”.
To become balanced they need to talk. A huge amount of conversations (gossip) are aimed at creating an internal balance. To find internal balance people look for people that are similar. Again they need a secure place that shields them from the strange outside world.
When people are constantly moving in similar environments they will never find their Kernel, The Self. It will be watching unable to interfere in the many dialogues that are taking place.
When the Self is unknown, people will not accept the theory of Will. They will be switching from one theory to the other without finding rest.
When they find themselves they will not need the theory of Will because they will be able to play with all the world-views. This is a paradox. It also proves the theory of Will because Will tried to explain that Life is a Paradox.
Another citation: `The process of coming close to harmonizing is visible in an old example. Automobiles and farm machinery once had clutches. These clutches consisted of two plates, one attached to the driver motor, the other attached to the wheels, thrasher, or rotary saw. When the operator ‘let in the clutch’ the two plates moved flat up against each other. As the clutch ‘comes in,’ the driver plate begins to transfer energy to the follower plate getting thus it to turn. At first, the clutch slips and most of the power goes to grabbing, which produces heat. Increasingly the driving plate turns the follower. With full ‘letting in,’ the two turn together. There is no more heating; they form a unit with no further visible communications. The coupling established at the molecular level joins the material of the driver and follower plates in transmitting power to the wheels and cutting blades. This clutching sequence is a model of entrainment. We can recognize similar entrainment sequences in many other situations: a spoon stirring batter in a bowl, cellular protein molecules latching onto antibodies, two persons entering into conversation, and 100,000 people being captured by Marion Anderson singing God Bless America at the Lincoln Memorial”
Will was unable to operate his own clutch. This was really visible when he was driving his car.
He was a staccato person. He loved to work with steel and stone. He was a sculptor. His art was concrete. He loved to practice what he preached but he always practiced his theory in the outside world. He loved to help others but never wanted to be helped. This is the sad consequence of a Mythic/Social-combination.
Will showed that all the combinations are games and the Mythic/Social-game is the game of creating new games. A Mythic Social is an innovator. He is always on the front-line.
He does not see that his inventions wil be taken over by other World-View combinations that are highly practical like the Unity/Sensory-combination, The Expert.
Expert always think they have invented things themselves and never give the Mythic/Social the credits. This is a fact of life but Mythics don’t accept the facts of Life.
His books are wonderful pieces of English words I never heard of. He was a child of a highly educated family in Boston. His mother and father did not love him. They wanted him to become somebody. At the end of his life he was convinced he had failed to satisfy the ambitions of his parents. He told everybody this was the fatal trap in life.
Will was not only a Mythic but also a Social. Socials are highly influenced by Others. Of course parents play the most important role because a young child is incapable of resisting their influence. The Self of the young child is watching.
In the internal dialogue of Will his mother plaid a very important role. In his external dialogue he looked for a similar person and his wife plaid that role. He was unaware of this. He was constantly fighting the mother in his wife without noticing she was a different person. His wife plaid the same game. Will was her father and she did not notice Will was really looking for love and harmony.
Will promoted ”Just right” because ”With perfect harmony there is no exchange”.
Another citation:”Too Large—Overloads. Highly energetic perturbations overload a system, tearing apart the autocatalytic loops that hold its definition. Too much energy bifurcates the stable basins of a system’s memory and ultimately violates its autopoietic identity. The overly energetic perturbations leave open non-reflecting fragments of nodes: neurons, bits of stories, and social customs. These fragmented networks are no longer able to hold meanings or link to memory traces. Short of total destruction, strong perturbation will wipe out the fine structure of a receiving system, leaving it only able to operate in those sequences enforced by the invasive perturbation. To protect the networks of connections, electrical and mechanical systems have features to handle ‘over-modulation.’ With appropriate design, they digitize signals to compress the spectrum, thereby allows the message to be accepted. Human systems have a variety of means to block or censor invasive signals that violate our senses and psyches. Some at the physiological level block the energy that carries the messages; others receive, understand and reject the overwhelming impact. Blocking and the use of censorship disconnects us from the environment and preempts the discrimination they would our systems had more capacity”.
Wills communication was Too Large.
He was a genius and his wife a normal person. He did not realize this.
His knowledge and experience was so enormous that he overwhelmed everybody.
He was looking for a dialogue but in every dialogue and project he became the leader.
He was a guru but he did not want to be a guru.
He was a child longing for his mother but he never wanted to be touched.
He cared for everybody but not for himself.
He was fighting but he wanted peace.
He wanted to create a better world but the outside world was moving into the wrong direction. He did not accept the Cycle.
He always wanted to cure himself. He wanted to find the eternal youth and searched the whole world for new treatments and medicines. He did not believe in the medical system but at the end of his life he needed the system desperately. He never listened to the experts so they left him alone.
He preached meditation but he could not calm himself.
Will was the prove of his own theory.
He was a living paradox.
The personality and the vision of Will McWhinney attracted many Mythic people. All of them started to play with the theory of Will in their own way. Soon it became very clear that Will had re-discovered a very ancient theory of Life.
A pastor found a relationship between the World Views of Will and the Four Apostles (see pictures in this blog). He discovered that the Four Books of the Evangelists where written to adress one particular World View of the believers.
We discovered a relationship with the very powerfull psychological theory called Interpersonal Theory, Game Theory, Conflict Theory, the Cycles in History, the Tarot, the Four Humors, the Zodiac, the Four Forces of Nature, the Archtetypes of Jung, the Myers Briggs test, the Big Five, the metaphors of George Lakoff and many many other ancient and modern theories.
Paths of Change has proved to be the perfect meta-theory to map and understand all kinds of different physical and social sciences. It shows without any doubt that a theory of everything is possible.
The most interesting find was the self-referencial nature of the theory. It is possible to map the theory on itself.
This website contains many examples of the remarkable power of Paths of Change to understand what is happening in the World. Use the tag Will McWhinney to find them all.
In deze blog toon ik aan dat Inspraak eigenlijk een een vorm van Feedback is op het OntwikkelProces van een Overheid.
Om die Feedback te kunnen Waarderen moet het OtwikkelProces van de overheidOrganisatie wel voldoen aan het criterium First Time Right of andere vormen van Lean Six Sigma.
Lean heeft als uitgangspunt dat je alle Verspilling moet verwijderen door een proces te Stroomlijnen.Lean resulteert daardoor vanzelf in een Duurzaam proces.

Hfdst 10: Het Einde, een korte Samenvatting en de Start van een nieuwe blog over”echte” Representatieve Democratie.
Deze blog gaat over het falen en slagen van (burger-)participatie.
Herbij wordt de gemeente Leiden als voorbeeld gebruikt.
De gemeente Leiden is een van de vele gemeenten in Nederland die last heeft van de Inspraak van haar inwoners.
De Leidse Inwoners voelen zich gebruikt en de Ambtenaren en hun bazen (de Wethouders) vinden de inwoners veel te kritisch en denken dat ze het nooit goed doen.
Er van Uitgaande dat de Oorzaak ligt in de Wijze Waarop het Participatie proces plaatsvindt wordt in deze Blog een Simpele Oplossing geboden.
Inspraak kun je niet Regelen maar moet je Faciliteren.
Hierbij kun je gebruik maken van de Gezichtspunten (“Worldview” , Point of View, PoV)) van Paths of Change (PoC).
UIt de analyse van Hfdst5 blijkt dat er twee PoV’s ontbreken n.l. (1): Verbeelding (Geel, iNtuitive in Jung) en (2):Emoties (Groen, Feeling, in Jung).
Verbeelding<->Emoties vormen het proces=Spel) van Faciliteren, of The Game that Creates Games (de Infinite Game van J.P. Carse).
In onderstaande Verordening wordt de Leidse inspraak geregeld. Het dokument erna bevat de resultaten van een onderzoek naar de problemen.
Hierbij moet worden opgemerkt dat de vertegenwoordigers van de inwoners (i.h.a. wijkverenigingen) overtuigd zijn dat de gemeente het rapport heeft gemanipuleerd wat past in het bestaande beeld.
Belangrijke onderwerpen in de verordening zijn Bestuursorgaan, Belang, (Wie) en de Wijze waarop (Hoe) de inspraak kan plaatsvinden zijnde: informatie geven, raadplegen, adviseren, coproduceren en meebeslissen.
De Participatie maakt deel uit van een Ontwikkelproces dat bestuurd wordt door een Bestuursorgaan waarbij Belanghebbenden een rol krijgen toebedeeld die gevolgen ondervinden van het beoogde Resultaat (Doel) van het 0nt-Werpproces.
2.2 De Casus van het Winkelcentrum
Een voorbeeld (zie casus in Rapport Platform31) is het Renoveren (Wat) van een Winkelcentrum in een wijk met ongeveer 15.000 inwoners (Waar)
In dit geval komen de opgesomde stappen (Hoe) en de betrokken partijeen (Wie) allemaal aan de orde.
De EigenaarCoproduceert , de bewoners van de wijk spelen de rol van Consument en de bewoners van de aanpalende flats zijn Belanghebbenden omdat de eigenaar een hoge flat wil bouwen om de kosten van de verbouw te compenseren.
De gemeente plaatst de participatie in het kader van de nog niet ingevoerde omgevingswet en levert een inspraak-cooordinator die is ingehuurd van een extern buro.
Uiteindelijk wordt de hoge flat een onderwerp waaruit een enorm Conflict ontstaat waardoor de hele wijk (door de wijkvereniging) wordt betrokken. Dit conflict legt het hele proces stil en beinvloedt zelfs de gemeenteraads-verkiezingen.
3. Stand van Zaken Omgevingswet
De Omgevingswet is in 2012 bedoeld om alle bestaande wetten en regels die betrekking jebben de inrichting van het landschap op te laten gaan in één wet. Daardoor vervallen straks de Mijnbouwwet, de Tracéwet, de Monumentenwet, de Spoedwet wegverbreding, de Wet ruimtelijke ordening en nog 21 andere wetten.
De wet moet de bureaucratie m.b.t. het aanvragen van vergunningen (inclusief toezicht en handhaving) terugdringen en de burger voorzien van “slimme” (3D)-hulpmiddelen.
Zoals zo vaak zijn deze hulpmiddelen nog niet klaar en zijn de gemeenten min of meer experimenteel bezig met de wet wat tot grote verwarring lijdt.
Het ligt nu in de bedoeling om de wet in 1922 (10 jaar later) in te voeren. Het is de grote vraag of dit lukt,
PoC blijkt duizenden jaren oud te zijn en wordt door Will McWhinney verklaart uit z.g Worldviews (Wereldbeelden, Gezichtspunt)een manier waarop mensen tijdens een verandering naar de wereld kunnen kijken (waarnemen, denken (waarheid), zien (inzicht, waargeven), voelen, waarderen).
Een Verandering is een Cyclus die vaak in dezelfde Volgorde wordt doorlopen.
Er blijken maar 4 (2×2) wereldbeelden te bestaan (vergelijkbaar met de Archetypen van Jung). die in een veranderproces vaak in dezelfde volgorde een rol spelen.
Ieder wereldbeeld is een unieke combinatie van twee bewegingen n.l. Compressie (Yang, Mannelijk, versimpelen, tot stilstand brengen) en expansie (Yin, Vrouwelijk , uitdijen, laten groeien) waardoor de combinatie vaak wordt getypeerd met “Ademen” (vgl. de Cosmic Breath).
De wereldbeelden komen ook voor in vrijwel alle Persoonlijkheidstheorieen. Dit verklaart waarom bepaalde mensentypen (Uitvinders, makers,..) in de zelfde fase van een verandering (bijv. een project) een rol spelen.
In de Psychologie worden Yin en YangAgency en Communion genoemd.
Een persoonlijkheid is een combinatie van twee wereldbeelden.
Een veranderproces is succesvol als het rond heeft gedraaid langs 4 verschillende wereldbeelden, waarbij dat draaien met en/of tegen de klok kan gaan of door het midden (via het Kruis).
De meest complexe beweging is een z.g. Moebius ring (lijkt op 8).
Hierna volgen een aantal plaatjes met toepassingen van PoC.
Veranderpaden kunnen 2 PoV (Point of View) bevatten maar ook 4. Een 2-draai noemt Will een Game (Spel). Renaissance is een voorbeeld van een grote verandering (“Wedergeboorte”) die meer dan 2 , soms 4 of meer, stappen behelst.
Hier zijn de kruispaden zichtbaar die betrekking hebben op Politiek (Sociaal <-> Wetten) en Ondernemen (van Idee <-> Actie.
5. De OmgevingsWet als Verander-Proces: De Overheid als Strenge Vader
Wat het eerste opvalt is dat zowel het wereldbeeld “Verbeelding” Geel, “Mythic in PoC en INtuitive bij Jung als “Emotie“, Groen, Social in PoC, Feeling bij Jung, vrijwel geen rol speelt.
De overheid speelt het AnalytischeSpel en denkt niet in termen van Verbeteren of Innovatie.
Alles is aan Regels gebonden en die regels worden niet eens geevalueerd.
De Burger is een Speelbal in het het spel en kan niets zeggen omdat hij stom (doof), dom of ondeskundig is.
De Overheid is de Strict Father van de Republikeinen en zeker niet de Nurturing Mother van de Democraten.
Hieronder een college van George Lakoff die de “uitvinder” is van de theorie dat het Denken in het Lichaam zit (Embodiment) en dat we bij het denken gebruik maken van gebruik maken van (Lichaams-) Metaforen.
6 Emoties en het Veranderproces
In de casus van hfdst 2.2. kun je zien hoe een verandering tot een groot conflict lijdt. De corona-crisis is zo’n voorbeeld.
Het blijft mogelijk om zo’n conflict om te buigen naar een Opstand door de oorzaak van de gebeurtenis te reframen, in een andere Metafoor te plaatsen, bijv. de (war-)metafoorvan de “Common Enemy“.
Onderstaande plaatjes laten zien Hoe een mens (volgens Kubler Ross) op een dramatische gebeurtenis (“een calamiteit”) reageert die grote invloed kan hebben op het leven(bijv. het sterven van een partner of een aardbeving).
Na een snelle cyclus van meestal onbewust Analyseren en Waarderen volgt een Ontkenning en het produceren van veel en heftige emoties (passie) waarna men op den duur tot Inzicht komt en weer stabiliseert.
Ik hoop dat het opvalt dat hier ook een PoC-cyclus wordt gedraaid.
Mensen draaien iedere dag een PoC-cyclus die correleert met de Zon (Vader) en de nacht (Maan, Moeder). De Dag-Nacht-cylus (2 Zon<->Maan)) was vroeger van enorme symbolische waarde net als de 4 (2×2) Seizoenen en de Sterrencyclus van de Zodiac en de Precessie die ook van Licht (Kerstmis) naar Donker (Halloween) gaat.
In het 2e plaatje wordt inzichtelijk gemaakt dat de mens een set-point heeft, een gemiddelde staat van zijn waar men op den duur weer in terecht komt. Het Set-point zit in het Kruis bij PoC. Het kruispunt staat voor het Bewustzijn dat altijd in het midden van het midden zit.
De mens zit via zijn bewustzijn aan zijn eigen kruis genageld.
Mensen synchroniseren als ze gelijk zijn of gelijk worden gemaakt. Dat kan door ze op een gedeeld onderwerp te focussen.
Een verliefd stel is gesynchroniseerd maar ook het publiek van een voetbalwedstriijd is gesynchroniseerd.
Een gesynchroniseerde groep mensen gedraagt zich als 1 persoon en kan ook makkelijk in trance worden gebracht waardoor ze kunnen worden geprogrammeerd.
Het conflict met het winkelcentrum in hfdst 2.2 is een voorbeeld van synchronisatie waarbij het idee van een enorme kolos, de flat, in een prachtig “eigen” park fungeerde als focal point.
8. Over Engineering:
De Driehoek bestaat uit Vier Driehoeken in de Tetra Logica van Collin (Collective Intelligentie). Collin is het resultaat van een langdurige activiteit van de TU Delft om het vakgebied Engineering te verbeteren. Collin lijkt erg veel op PoC.
Collaborative Learningcontains 4 connected Cycles connected in a 4-fold Cycle. The )sub-cycles) operate in a Whole (white being) a Space-Time, a Social Context, a Mental Space and a Physical Space. This model is an application of one level of Paths of Change.
Collaborative Learning is een ontwikkel-aanpak gebaseerd op PoC die ik samen met Baan Company heb ontwikkeld en is terug te vinden in hun software-ontwikkel-systeem Cordys (Hart).
Cordys is een implementatie van BPML een standaard om Businees Processen te definieren.
BPML is uitgebouwd naar V/DML Value Delivery Modelling Language. Hierme kun je waarde-ketens specificeren.
Het meta-proces is het proces van het Abstraheren wat eindeloos door kan gaan zowel omhoog als omlaag. Het “hoogste” model gaat over het Universum en het “laagste” model gaat over de Grondslag die de Wiskunde is.
Een schema is een abstractie van een stappenplan dat handmatig door de mens maar ook deels of geheel door verschillende soorten machines kan worden uitgevoerd. Hierbij speelt de huidige computer een rol maar die is weer geabstraheerd in een Turing Machine. De omgevingswet is een voorbeeld van een poging om ontwikkelprocessen te automatiseren.
De essentie van Collin zit in het (slim) registreren van de documentatie van de voortgang van een project zodat het altijd duidelijk is waarom een besluit is genomen maar ook welke kennis (en ervaring) er is opgebouwd. Het moet altijd mogelijk zijn om zowel vooruit als achteruit te gaan in het proces. Collin hecht ook veel waarde aan reflexie. Het model achter Collin, het meta-model, past net als PoC in een viervoudige Geometrie.
9. Engineering en Gebruikers Participatie
9.1. Voorbeelden Software voor de Omgevingswet
9.2. Kun je Participatie Automatiseren?
Hieronder een aantal plaatjes die laten zien hoe je “systemen” die een Mens of Organisme voorstellen aan elkaar kunt koppelen d.m.v een input->output-opslag relatie vroeger getypeerd als een Dataflow-Diagram (DFD).
De opslag is de “Grootste Gemene /Deler” van de input en de output. in de loop der tijd is de input een User Interface (Scherm) geworden en de Opslag een Database (later in een Cloud . De output was eerst op papier maar is nu ook op een Scherm. Daarnaast is de Flow afgebeeld op een Data-Communicatie-Netwerk.
De mens is nu uitsluitend gekoppeld aan een scherm (met zijn vingers) ook al kunnen er ook meer complexe interactiemechanismen worden gebruikt zoals een 3D-Bril gekoppeld aan een Bewegings-machine zoals een Flight-Simulator.
Een ander voorbeeld is een Simulator zoals Sym City waarbij door middel van constraints (beperkingsregels) een stads-mechaniek (model) in werking kan worden gezet. Een moderne vorm van een stadsimulator wordt een Digital Twin genoemd.
Een Digital Twin, een Virtuele testomgeving waar innovatieve ideeën getest kunnen worden.
Het moet mogelijk zijn om een Agent zo te programmeren (mbv AI) dat hij/zij de mens kan nadoen in een participatie-project. De Agent kan in 2D of 3D een mens compleet nadoen.
Is dit wenselijk of makkelijk?
Het concept Participatie betekent Mee Mogen Doen en gaat uit van een achterhaalde taakverdeling tussen De OVERheid gerepresenteerd door de Koning en de ONDERdanen die hun Vertegenwoordigers hebben gekozen in de 2e kamer een voorstation van de 1e kamer waarin de Edelen, de Vazalen van de koning zitting haden.
Een Representatie zou een afspiegeling van de burgers moeten zijn maar is dat niet omdat een bepaald type mens de Politicus die rol in een parlement ambieert en daarna zijn of haar eigen gang gaat.
Vele andere persoonlijkheidstypen hebben een hele ander kijk op de wereld en vinden het allemaal wel best totdat ze met het resultaat worden geconfronteerd.
We leven in een totaal andere tijd dan toen de Democratie werd bedacht die het mogelijk maakt om iedereen direct invloed te geven mits de processen daartoe zijn ingericht.
De omgevingswet gaat in die richting maar heeft nog erg veel last van de oude wereld die overal in de geautomatiseerde processen zijn kop op steekt.
Deze blog is de weerslag van veel ervaring met hele grote veranderingtrajecten soms op zowel technisch als sociaal nivo.
Paths of Change (PoC) kwam in 1997 als mosterd na de maaltijd toen ik net een eigen pad in was gegaan wat mij nog steeds bevalt.
Ik ben een INFP in de typering van Myers Brigss. Mijn type, de is zeer zeldzaam net als andere zaken (Bloedgroep, Ouders, Loopbaan): “The INFP personality type is often described as an “idealist” or “mediator” personality. People with this kind of personality tend to be introverted, idealistic, creative, and driven by high values. INFPs also have strong interests in making the world a better place“.
Ik hoop dat we met behulp van de vele hulpmiddelen die er aankomen er een “echte” representatieve democratie van kunnen mkaken.
In een volgene Blog zal ik verder ingaan op de wijze waarop er een “echte” representatieve democratie kan worden ingericht.
I was born 22-4-1951, 1:02 in Leiden, the Netherlands.
When I was a young child I was visited by Ghosts that frightened me.
Because of his back pain My father was visited by a Magnetizer who told me that I could do the same.
As a young child I could Read the mind of an adult making me ask “forbidden” questions. I knew and know what bothers people.
At school I always asked the wrong questions and was therefore send out of class. Later I discovered that asking the wrong questions is called consultancy and it attributed to Socrates (“Socratic Dialogue“) who was sentenced to death doing this.
When I worked at the Personal Department of the Dutch PTT iI proved that I could predict psychological tests by “entering” into people.
I always meet the people I need by accident. Often When we meet I (and the other) feel a big energy moving through my body and the other.
Often important and secret data is given to me when I meet other people that are in a conversation or look at TV or take a book and open it at a centrain place. I know how to use the Tarot and the I-Tjing.
I am always “Saved by the Bell” so I am never in need of money or I survive a big accident or a almost terminal disease.
I know what the Sign tell me and am able tp translate signs for other people.
I have travelled Time and Space have met Spirits that turned into Material Person that suddenly disappeared . I know I have 7 Guardian Angels and met with the Arch Angels.
When I was a Senior Manager at ABN it helped me to select talented people that’s why the bank gave me the responsibility to take care of High Potentials.
At school my teacher detected my Mathematical talent. I am a seeer (and not a prover).
At the University I was able to combine all the exact studies psychology & philosophy. I am a Master in almost everything because I see (=insight”) and remember easily (photographic memory).
Later I found out that what was normal to me was called paranormal and I started to find an explanation in science.
I am 70 now and It is time to write down what I know. To do that I will use many personal (Blogs) and external sources (links) I have collected in my life.
Every day I will add a little part of the whole so come back as often as you want and please ask questions.
Cycles, Music and The Sixties
In 1968 I visited Paris with my school at the moment of the rise of the Sudents that came to the Netherland a few years later. The 60-ties were started and i was in the middle of it all.
The Cathedral of Chartres, Druids and Ley Lines
On the last day of our visit to Chartres I visited the Cathedral. When I got into the Cathedral I experienced my first Mystical Experience.
Later i found out that Chartres was the mystical center of the Druids. It is called the Heart Chakra of the World.
Later I found out that the Mystical story(the spiral) was put into the Chathedral and that many other places in the world are situated at special “power” places mostly elated to tensions in the deeper structure of the earth or the flow of water deep below.
These places are connected by lines called ley-lines. They are part of ancient roads that lead to holy pilgrimage places like Santiago de la Compostella.
Later a personal advisor of Poetin told me that the Russian Pipe-lines were put on ley lines to have more impact on Earth.
Channels, Seth en Ra
Thinking Allowed is a You-Tube Channel run by Jeffrey Mislove that contains hundreds of interviews with important researchers of the Paranormal.
THis video is about Channels. Channels are humans that are able to get in contact with sources that are outside the Veil.
One of my first encounters with a Channel were the books of Seth.
Later I found a comparable entity called RA. RA Explains the Law of One.
Around 1999 I experienced a rise of my Kundalini and i became Enlightened. I will tell you more about it later.
About my Magical Mystery Tour
When we moved into a new house in Gouda that was an old Hospital stange things started to happen. We and tour neighbors heard strange noices.
Suddenly I heard for the first time in my life a voice in my head who explained me that a big change would happen and I did not have to be afraid. Soon after that my wife left for a reason she could not explainand I was suddenly alone in a new house.
I felt asleep and woke up early in the morning at Sunrise and experienced my death that was combined with a feeling of Extreme Power that felt like God and I understood why we need an intermediary to connect to this extreme power.
After this my Heart started to pulsate sending out energy to others. I realized that my Magical Mystery Tour had started.
PoC is a theory of change developed by Will McWHINNEY when he was a professor at the UCLA.
PoC consists of four so called “World Views” that are related to the human personality. World Views have diferent names in different psychological theories. Examples are archetypes (Jung) or Tattvas (India), seasons (China).
PoC contains the concept Path because every succesful change is a closed path that contains the four wprdviews.
