EcoMind Mirroring Instantiation_#1,249_LinkedIn Comment to Mr. Arun Das (PhD)

leave a comment »

This is a highly relevant comment I posted in the SARTA ( http://www.sarta.org ) LinkedIn Discussion space and the VLAB LinkedIn Discussion space today.

Apologies, if you are members of either one of these discussion groups as well as this EvoTech Discussion space in LinkedIn, please forgive the redundancy.

“The Comment on… another Theoretical Instantiation and the Synchronicity of It All.”

“Amazing and I love it!

Am I the only one who caught this synchronistic connection? (Or who cares???)

New Discussion topic presented by Mr. Arun Das (PhD) and titled:

“Neuromarketing”is the latest buzzword in marketing area. Current efforts in neuromarketing approaches are not adequate; it requires a lot more.”

(http://www.sfperformancemagazine.com/arundas/marketing/is-neuromarketing-the-ultimate-future)

… and synchronistically…

This earlier “Evolutionary Technologies” Discussion topic (only a few topic titles down from the above) and titled:

“Evolutionary Technologies… considers the idea that all technological development is being innately directed, without our conscious intent, by the design of the human brain…
http://www.linkedin.com/groups?about=&gid=2072848&trk=anet_ug_grppro

The synchrony defined: A theoretical assumption stating that cortical features and processes and architectures are being systematically and intentionally and non-consciously mirrored-projected into our technology and into our physical systems… and a week later someone puts up an article about a new brand of marketing called “Neural-Marketing”…

Check out the main Discussion area in the above link here and my blog at https://imonad.wordpress.com if you find this synchrony at all fascinating… and/or the content itself.

Thanks Arun, I will read your article and we will be talking I am sure.

Best,
Brian”

We are all unique for a reason (…and as related to mind-centric Tech evolution)

leave a comment »

This is simply why I believe technologies and in particular any form of tech related to human connection (…and learning, performance, development, measurement) are developing the way they are… and if this is in fact the case, it would be good for those of us involved in the development of technology to be made aware of this underlying motivation and affect over time of the human mind upon society and specifically on technology creation.

The really interesting question is why would the mind (as a productive system of already semi connected human minds) want to manifest more and more of it’s features and functionality, and to whatever degree possible, architecture, into our physical, technological systems world.

The motivation IMO has always been obvious.  Minds want to find and produce great work with other minds. Why? Because when two or more minds connect to do some form of work or produce some form of output and each has talents and dispositions that complement the whole of the group, then great work is produced.  It is very simple.  Oh, and they have a blast (fun) doing it. It is the uniquely complementary mix of unique minds that generate the greatest output and fun. What human being, in their right mind, wouldn’t want more and more of this in their lives?

Ask any mind what it really wants, beyond some level of operating comfort. All minds want this synergy experience.  We as unique human beings are drawn to it because our uniquely disposed minds crave it.  Not just connection but powerful connections, which by default generate synergy.

 We are all unique for a reason.  It is what makes us unique that makes our combinations between others unique and potently and productivity powerful.  So uniqueness has a reason too… You have to be unique to have synergy

Mind-based technological evolution is here to make human synergy occur as a habit. To the point, sometime in the future it will be our life-habit as a society, and that to be “in-synergy” at work or in life is considered the moral norm.  In counterpoint then, to not be “in-synergy” at this future social point would be the equivalent of throwing garbage out the window of your plasma car.  Which by then, I am sure, would be a jail-able offense.

It is really very simple. Minds NEED other Minds that fit.

Minds Needs Minds... that fit!

Minds Needs Minds... that fit!

That’s my take… the human mind wants to meet optimal other minds.

I think it is this simple. Defining “optimal” becomes interesting but let us assume it is about creating new “anythings.” The moment of insight “Ah-Ha” (…and yes, I spell it differently than the popular market and for good reason) is the most intoxicating experiential phenomena known to the human mind… So having more of these that are resonant to our innate and unique gifts and dispositions and doing so with others of complementary unique-ness is… well… a real watershed party. This is what our minds want AND need intrinsically – and are designed to create, are creating, and will continue to create for themselves.

There are few if any technologies in the world today that over time have evolved outside of this idea of mind-driven architecture, design and functionality.

I am sure I am not saying anything new but I hope I am saying it uniquely and therein reaching more “minds” in the process.

WeMe – Human Evolution Metrics & The EvoReVo Is Coming!

leave a comment »

“WeMe” – Metrics for the Evolution of Individuals and Humanity. 

Ah-Ha Tracker-SML 

 
WeMe is about the “we” of society as in “us” as a system of semi-interconnected human beings and the “me” of society as in “the individual”, and why and how they merge and combine and produce relationships of varying degrees of human synergy, e.g. productivity, unity, creativity output, etc.  It is also about the WeMe as a naturally and globally evolving system of individuals and how we can affect the quality and speed of that waiting evolution-revolution.
 
 Flo Tracker-SML
 
WeMe is about a new form of “Self” representation that is Raw, Direct and Natural. 
 
The more powerful result of a WeMe revolution will be built, initially, using raw data concerning insight or ah-ha events which throughout our daily lives. These insights or ah-ha events, and the patterns-of-ah-ha’s that emerge, will be easily recorded, automatically uploaded and dynamically illustrated, from the little ones to the big Eureka’s – while we work, play, walk, talk, wherever we are, whoever we are with face-to-face or virtually.
 
The Diary of Ah-Ha-SML
Most importantly, WeMe is about recording and representing the “patterns of our insights” over time and then correlating these patterns to what is going on within us and around us… our context, our actions, our relationships and even our thinking… over time. It is our patterns of insight, or what I call our Path-of-Ah-Ha, that we can get a clearer and true picture of our living and evolving Self.
 
Oh, did I not mention that WeMe is about coming to know and see and better live our innate gifts and dispositions, and from this, our TruSelf.  This is the real purpose to being able to actually see and come to understand the nature and patterns of your insights over time.
 
WeMe is all a piece of the rest of GET and LeCompany and LeToonz and The Library-of-Masters and The ArteFactory and SynchroNet and The Ageless Child (See: G.E.T. TheVision).  WeMe is simply the first market space I think I can begin to make all the rest come alive and into the market.
 
Ah-Ha

Ah-Ha

WeMe records our ah-ha’s right from our blackberry or iphone or palm or laptop.  These Ah-Ha (and Flo) tracking uploads are the first step towards a direct measure of your daily growth and, over time, patterns of that growth and development and, over a bit more time, your personal evolution.
 
Remember if it’s about Me then it is also about We, or as it applies to the individual it then also applies to clusters of individuals, and larger clusters and so on until it can represent a dynamic picture of the learning and the evolution of our society as a whole.

In the early 90’s I brought these personal and organizational learning and evolution measurement and representation software ideas into the market to test the water. As organizational IT solutions back then, and for the home pc children and tween market, the WeMe suite of software consisted of: The Ah-Ha Traker, The Flo-Traker and The Diary-(Path)-of-Ah-Ha as seen in the above CD package illustrations.  That was over 15 years ago. At this time I spelled “Tracker” without the “c” as “Traker” to make the phrase more unique.

The idea then was that people would be interested in visual representations, and other cool data visualizations, related to their personal (and human systems as org’s) growth, learning and evolution, and how this life process co-related to other Hu’s on the planet. Obviously, I was too early.  Not so today I’m hoping.

Ah-Ha /Flo Tracking is only the beginning.

If you have seen and read about my LeToonz characters and the topological world they live in called LeCozmos, you will know that ah-ha and flo are 2 of a family of  6 (and more coming) processes or states represented in the evolutionary model or ontology of mine.  In knowing this then you know that this is just the beginning and that many, many versions will be waiting to follow after this first version of WeMe which will be using Ah-Ha and Flo only. In other words, we have a very full pipeline of products to come and it is, and always has been, a matter of picking the best product-place and time to begin, which I think is WeMe and now… and then to pay very close attention to our human users.

What does the very first version of WeMe have to do to be successful?

  • WeMe has to deliver, and continue to deliver, unique, genuine and personal value.
  • Users have to want to see what they “look like” as YOUniquely measured individuals, and as compared to others.
  • Users have to have ah-ha’s through tracking their ah-ha’s that they find valuable for themselves and others.
  • Metric visualization has to be outstanding.
  • YOUnique metric visualizations per YOUnique user must offer overlay and superpositioning features that are also outstanding.
  • Users have to want to share the “experience and the value” with others.
  • WeMe data upload has to be very easy to do and very little time to do it.
  • It has to look, sound and feel kewl as well as be kewl. 

The LeCozmos topology imagery will become the functional, dynamic 4-dimensional visualization medium. In LeCozmos we have an analogue topological system of evolving imagery that starts with a sign wave that becomes a mobius strip that evolves into a toroid and then into connecting toroids, and ultimately an nth dimensional nested-toroid that represents a singular YOUnique individual.  These toroids will be able to overlay upon each other to measure “fit” or potential human synergy.  That’s the plan anyway.

Making all this happen will take a ton of work and some cash.  The easy part it do start something simply, Versions 1.0-1.5 for example, and build up to this nested toroidal Version 3.0 correlative place.  
  
Version 1.0
Through their socnet interface (iphone, palm, wrist watch, blackberry, laptop, etc) the user enters numeric data that reflects the number of insights or “Ah-Ha” events they have had (or are having) at any point throughout their day (or when a user wakes up with dream insights to be recorded).  Users then have a choice to enter another discrete numeric which reflects their sense of time that has passed since they made their last entry.  Flo data reflects your “sense of time” passing or your experience of “felt-time.

Your Ah-Ha and Flo data entry behavior on your iPhone or Palm or Blackberry (etc) or laptop would be something like this:

  • You realize you are having an ah-ha, a series of ah-ha’s, or that you recently had an ah-ha or series apple-iphone-in-hand-thumbof ah-ha’s previously.
  • You hit (press, click, speak to) your Ah-Ha Tracker application icon on your “device” touch screen.
  • When the app opens you choose/press the icon “Ah-Ha Rec.”
  • The screen opens to your Ah-Ha Tracker image/metaphor which, in this case, you chose to be a series of different pizza sizes – could be shoes, golf links, etc.
  • You click the XL Pizza image 1x, the Large Pizza image 3x’s, the Medium Pizza image 10x’s and then hit the “Next” button.
  • You then you enter 30 in the new (next) FloTracker screen. (You just made a Flo record stating that it “feels like” 30 minutes have passed since the last time you entered data 2 hours ago.)
  • You close your phone and your data uploads to all of your various profile screens in Facebook, MySpace, Twitter (coming), LinkedIn, Hi-5, Plaxo, etc.
  • You can check to see your personal YOUnique Toroid and other personal YOUnique evolutionary data graphics online by hitting the Ah-Ha app and choose “MeMirror.” 
  • You can check to see everyone else’s, or the We of WeMe, by hitting the Ah-Ha app and choose “WeMirror.”

That’s it, your YOUnique Hu-Metric, or human-metric, record loaded up in 8-10 secs max!

 Version 2.0
This personal evolution-data metric adds up.  It becomes YOUniquely patterned and then it is superpostioned on everything you think and do. Everything you do as-in… places you travel physically; your web behavior and email content; your live meetings and web-meetings and dialogue and texting; your YouTube visits, posts and posts you check out; and most importantly “your own” work and content creation and content affecting work.

More really cool stuff comes alive with your WeMe Ah-Ha/Flo data over time – the “Compares” – comparisons w/Others.  Others that you know; and comparisons with people you cease to know; and correlations to people you do not yet know but that you have complementary and/or parallel “data-relations” with and, and, and…

You and others can, for the first time EVER, actually see and measure your growth, learning and evolution. You would be able to see your ah-ha and flo data patterns merge with your life “doing” and thinking” patterns… and those of others around you and around the world. 

Version 3.0
This is the transformational Version.  Here is where you will be able to go from who you are – based on where you have been – to who you are based on who you are born to be.

At the next level “WeMe” will help anybody who uploads genuine WeMe data discover their unique and natural gifts, talents and dispositions.  WeMe helps us discover and then live our TruSelf and as a seamless consequence, our destined Purpose… On-Purpose.

Andrea,

I have been caught in your web for moment here and thought I’d extricate myself with a comment or two.  You have done so for me and it is only natural… as our areas of innately-driven interest are complementary – synergy begets natural NRG reciprocated…

*Excerpt from Andrea Marotti’s “Art of Innovation”: “Open Innovation – Corporate Venturing And Monetizing IP”

“You can stretch the life span of a product that has reached maturity by continuing to invest in R&D but it is risky and you better be as good as Apple at it.”

My Comment:

The only reason a computer platform, pc in this case, can stay away from the inevitability of future commoditization IMHO is because it is living in that unique space wherein R&D can maintain its lifespan beyond the norm.

That distinct commoditization-inhibiting commercial space is one that connects the human mind to other human minds.  This is a special zone of “doing.”

The pc lives here, as do other tech’s, hard and soft and downright ethereal.

Yes, Apple’s reinvents very well but they also just happen to have the helping hand of mind2mind commercial layer of business wherein your product can circumvent the commodity plunge if it develops and innovates in such a way as to consistently refine its relationship to consumer edge of mind-seamless-ness tech and do so through mirroring design and projections of functions and features of the human mind/brain… at feature/function introduction intervals which are at that edge of adoptive population ease and intrigue value, with functional value “demonstrates” right behind.

Okay, this is just too much fun in one morning.

Take care,

Brian

LeToonz on LeWave (…and defined but a little)

leave a comment »

 
These Guys will help you find what makes you YOUnique!
The LeToonz Crew helps you KNOW what makes you YOUnique!

 

The “Le” in Le Toonz refers to “Learning as Evolving. Toonz is cartoon with a Z. The Z means anything you want it to mean. The “Evolving” part refers to our development, growth and living fully each day.  It assumes, that we are all disposed in a multi-faceted fashion to do something significant with our lives.  LTZ is about some serious stuff but that’s not why kids buy them.  They buy them because they are new, fun and seem to make them feel better for some unexplainable reason.  That which we won’t explain through the consumed layer of Le Toonz we will touch on here.

LeToonz with LeCozmos provides a reflective model of the evolving individual and any group of individuals. It is a dynamic marriage that gives us our first illustrated and constantly updated and changing representation of who and what we are in any given moment, where we need to go and who we need to meet along the way to be and become our unique “SELF”… On Purpose.

 

LeTons to share. 

LeTons a’ fun ta’ come.

Right-On Rants – More proof that a certain EcoMind and this OneMind reality is, well, real.

leave a comment »

(This is a augmented copy of an Email I sent July 12, 2009 to a few friends and after my phone meeting with Brian Noguchi… that stirred me up. )

Thanks to my synchronistic meeting this AM with young and brilliant CEO, Brian Noguchi at www.trendessence.com I found this guy and his company:

http://www.numenta.com

And more proof my rants are right-on. 

Sample RightOn Rant: “Our Mind(s) is mirroring and projecting its design, functions, processes into our technology so that it can find “best fits” in other minds and those best or at least better “fits” give us that added synergy.  Mind-Mirrored systems of technologies will make this innately motivated effort as efficient as possible.”

Optimal Mind-to-MindTech-to-Mind connections are evolving more and more effectively and efficiently with our SocNet platforms today. We are more aggressively than ever searching for what we “think” are fuller forms of synergy. This is all possible thru optimized mirroring of the design and functions of our mind into our technology!”

Mind2MindTech2Mind: We will be, and some of us are already, uploading our SELF’s into a OneMind network.  The missing link in optimizing human synergies and therein the most effective human2human “connections” is that the representations of the individual YOUnique Self is missing as is, obviously, the agreed interpretive taxonomy of Self.  This taxonomy and our agreement with it as a start-point is, I believe,  THE bridge to the next phase of our human evolution. 

That interpretive, gift-centric Self-Taxonomy start-point is what I believe we have to offer through LeModel, LeToonz and LeCozmos.

Anyway, back to Rant-Instantiations… From this site: “Numenta is creating a new type of computing technology modeled on the structure and operation of the neocortex.”

from Mind of Clay

from Mind of Clay

See the link to support an emergent of an “Ecology-of-Mind” to a point wherein a new pardigm will come to be named.  Without a name it doesn’t exist to the larger “Most” population, right? Truth is, this new paradigm is here already, and has been operating incognito for decades… (and since homo-sapiens grew a set… of frontal lobes) nobody has stated the name out loud and at that “time” that “clicks” and naturally takes hold of most all of “us.” But a “they” will do so and that new paradgim name will be decided on soon.

I think EcoMnd is on the cloudy shortlist. OneMind is a “pop” close second. I love “K-Space” myself, but only as a future sub-culture of EcoMind.

My take, as you all know, is this idea of mind-mirroring and projection into technology which is a “determined” pattern and function motivated by our minds and for this innately driven purpose of the progressive optimization of human systems efficiency and enjoyment.

This is a basic bio-psycho-social-et al-whatever mind/brain thing folks. The brain wants more synergy to happen more often (… Hey and the human mind creates SocNet. Its ultimate purpose to gen-synergies).  Fairly simple really. More synergy creation begets better production of anything/everything… Including P&L’s.

Oh, and that same rant again…. an EcoMind conference event will be coming soon.  It has to.  Somebody is going to do it or something very akin to the idea of it. SocNet will be featured here as well as all tech that (appears to) reflect and mirror mind-design and function like… GUI’s, IT design and backbone, Org design behavioral models, psycho-bio-mimicry, mathematics used in analaytics modeling of human thought and behavior (as the same used in modeling memory and perception and sensory motor function), history and prognostics of web design, creation and evolution,  and more.

Re; Numenta, it is not so unusual to find that the gentleman that created this company uses quite a bit of my professors work/research, Karl H. Pribram, as a basis for his model.

Finally, there is a missing Technology content/ontology puzzle piece: Human “Self-Literacy” and Innate-Gift based “Self-Representation.”  So, LeToonz and LeCozmos is and will be needed soon and in parallel to socnet’s growth.

More specifically, I predict some form of human social-networking Ah-Ha Tracking and Flo-Tracking will become part of socnet platform very soon… <24 months.

Anyway, thanks for listening guys and gals.

Brian
