Self Data Ownership – How It Relates To Living Our Life-Purpose

with 2 comments

The following text is a “Reply” at the LinkedIn Discussion Group: Data Ownership In The Cloud.  I started this particular discussion titled: ““Give Me My Data Back!” or “I want to SEE My SELF, so give me my data back, please.” in November 2009 and it produced a lively discussion. Today some one mentioned I mis-framed my question and so I re-enter the collegial fray…

Digital Data and the Mirroring of Our Evolving SELF (Danny Rosin's Weave Mirror http://www.smoothware.com/danny/)

 Hello Robin,

Re:  The message that got lost in the framing… allow me to reframe.

My originating presentation is simply about the most fundamental learning and development needs (conscious or not and beyond food, water and shelter) of individual Hu-users – as uniquely gifted and disposed individuals – each with DNA-based, gift-driven “life-probabilities” as a unique “Self” – and how online data (both behavioral and future cognitive and derived meta-cognitive patterning) about each of us can be used BY each of us AND FOR each of us for the explicit purpose of better Seeing, and therein coming to better Know, our innate and natural and potent human Self.

… then the piece went on about what we could do (technologically) to obtain all that Self-data and to ultimately be the holders of the optimal aggregate of that data concerning each of our “data-pictured” Self’s.

If someone else has data about us then why not have that data for us, for the education, mirroring, reflection and the active development of our YOUnique Self…

I am not interested in the unfolding and fighting around current or future Data-Ownership Law – that fight is for all those complementary other Hu-Beings that are gifted and living on-purpose in that world – I am interesting in human and healthier human-systems evolution – in assisting people is seeing and living their lives in a way that is aligned with their innate and natural gifts and dispositions – Gift-driven Autopoietics.

I am fairly certain we will develop data-acq tools for the user to start generating aggregate data acquisition streams and then to compile and be enabled to analyze that query-able “Self-db” and to then become the owners of the most complete Self-behavioral and cognitive “moving-picture” as a “consumer.”

It might be at this point that corp-world asks for, and then pays us for (if we chose to give it up) what they are missing – fuller continuity and a “more whole” picture of the new Us, the autopoietic Us-er.

Many “others” are gathering data-chunk(s) of us but, as individual users as (conscious or not) originators of our own perceptions, memories and resultant actions-as-behaviors we are (or should/can be) in the best position to pull together over time, day-by-day, the very best aggregate picture of ourselves… as we change, and more importantly as we might evolve (or not).

It can only begin the moment that the management our own personal Self-Evolution has value – as that moment each of can see the value of Self-Data collection as a first step in managing our own evolution.

My work is about using that moving-picture in a manner that provides users-as-individuals an evolving measure and moving benchmark of their Self.

You can’t manage what you can’t measure, right.

We can’t change a Self we cannot see. We cannot see our gifts and how we might optimally “BE in life” if we first cannot first see our evolving “Self’s” as we are from one day, week and month to the next (and be fully embarrassed by our personal data-film)

Self-Data acquisition is an interdependent piece of larger whole for me. You can see a facet of this bigger chunk at https://imonad.wordpress.com , my Ecology-of-Mind Blog.

All this chatter conjoins with a number of other parallel, synergetic and emergent human social movements going on such as the new area of Self-Quantification (See Meetup.com groups with that name).

It is only through knowing one’s Innate Self that we can live the “Why” of our lives, why we are here in the first place – living in “significant service” to the world and living On-Purpose through our most potent gift-founded Self.

Cheers to all,
Brian

Our Innate Significance Begets Our Natural Social Purpose – Prescient “EvoLog” circa ’93…

Prologue
01.17.2010

“EvoLog” is one of many names I have created and used since the early 1980’s to bring new energy and meaning into this subject and typically as an effort to describe an interconnected facet of this very large system of thought… and the now apparently unfolding reality.

I inc’d Psykon Achievement Systems in 1984 with “Psykon” as a word combination of “Psyche” and “Icon” and referring to “representation of the human mind and spirit.”

This meaning-play with words has always come natural for me. Good thing too. When one is describing a “large and new thing” this language-play becomes a serious necessity as a culture’s lexicon at any given time, and at that time a new large thing comes to life, is naturally incompetent to describe the quality of new-ness of that new and grand thing.

I have not seen this document, which I originally scribbled in 1993, for at least a decade (I am guessing here) and came upon it just the other day (January 5th, 2010) and sent it to my colleague Dr. Lou for grammatic tightening.  It is in thought as it was 17 years ago. I have writings from the mid 80’s that speak similarly and more specifically and am trying to get these into a useable format – old vr.’s of software.

I assume “Evolog” stands for “evolutionary logic” but it could have meant “evolutionary log” Star Date… blahdiddly… (but I doubt it knowing my own mind still).  Anyway the piece is dated – and at times not so very much. I hope you enjoy a few good thoughts and futuristic guesses made with this muddled text of mine – done with such great pecking labor. Yes, a grand and pitiful pity this.

BACKGROUND
(circa 1993 // Palo Alto, Ca – Chicago, Il)

If life is learning why didn’t anybody ever tell us that every time we learn something new we have an insight or an Ah-Ha.

Why was the nature of the most fundamental and measurable unit of life not made known to us?

The market, young and old, systems, individuals, and cultures alike, are screaming for the identification of, and bridge between, a universal language-for-learning and human creativity, and the evolution of social purpose and value.

Restated, we are screaming for enlightenment about the value of our insights over time, so we can better understand and then procreate our personal significance and social purpose in life.

We all learn the same way differently.

Faces Flame

Despite the omnipresent nature of learning in human life no common thread, architecture, or universal language-for-learning has been articulated. Further, and until this time, the critically needed social architecture that bridges human and cultural learning to the creation of social value could not be developed. It is the development of one’s innate gifts, or natural competencies that begets personal and cultural significance. It is the unfolding of our significance that evolves our natural Social Purpose; the wonder of creative learning synergies and ultimately our Value as individuals and cultures.

Since 1985, I have predicted the emergence of the Learning/Evolution Technologies Industry.

The “pure-process” industry that cuts across all human endeavors and therefore markets.

This industry, as yet undefined by the financial markets, has gone from hundreds of millions to tens of billions in less than a decade. In the past generation, our Western oriented educational, self-development, or human potentiating, type products became available to the masses through the immense mail order publishing kingdom of audio and audio-video programs and more recently infomercials.

The exploding world of learning technologies for the development of the mind, body and spirit is physically evidenced by the proliferation of larger and larger shelf and floor space (500% or more) dedicated to the potentiating general education, psychology, health/wellness, spirituality, and business success type product sections in U. S. bookstores in the last 5 years alone. Eastern and Middle Eastern influences on our evolutionary product and service “content” are similarly evidenced. The world of human potentiating software and hardware is upon us with devices that provide myriad forms of bio-feedback; board games that analyze your dreams; self-hypnosis programs; and even food for thought as mind-munchies.

With the insurance industry funding Wellness (Mind/Body), and big business, schools and government buying Empowerment (Mind), we have sufficient evidence to support the readiness for the emergence of an industry that cuts across the social and economic development of all industries – the Learning/Evolution Technologies Industry.

Evolog, Inc. is positioned to midwife the birth of this revolutionary movement.

How we begin to achieve and maintain this leadership position is the real question and the inspiration for this proposal.
