The Human Identity Shift: When Personal Authenticity becomes the Keystone for Social Accountability

leave a comment »

Self-Quant to Self-Evolution Crossroads (Image Source: http://bit.ly/nzvmD1)

This next-gen of social, more-evolutionary (psycho-social) in nature (pun to be seen later) will be based on new domain of individual data and metrics.  These measures will also be visualized in 4D (not simply circles, but toroids over time which = 4D personal topologies) and will be dynamic and fluid values visualized and yet, despite their fluidity they will having directionality in regards to the individual and certain innate developmental limits, i.e. our natural personal and unique dispositions and gifts will, as they always have, define our personal developmental limits. Our natural “limits” are seen here in non-traditional definition. *

As we learn and evolve our gifts we develop our unique and genuine form of personal mastery and from this a life-purpose based on our natural gifts and dispositions. Our mastery develops, through a very full life time, into a personal “art-form.”  

Art-as-Mastery - Marine Electric Panel

Anyone who has developed true mastery will be seen as an artist in their work whether they’re an educator, design engineer, programmer, plumber, executive, electrician, chef, or lawyer, yes, lawyers can achieve a level or artistry in their life work too. In fact my own brother has achieved such a level of Mastery, as an attorney, but would never say this out loud. At this time, and predominantly, this is not how we talk (out loud) about gift-evolved personal mastery in most professional fields of work, but I see a time coming when we will.

Human Authenticity will be seen, literally visualized, as an evolving matrix of personal-data metrics. Some old and many new dimensions of personal data will be utilized.  Both the numbers and the visualized illustrations of those numbers will be sharable with proactive, prescriptive (personal bots/agents) sharing occurring virtually as we auto-search optimized, positive and quantifiable synergy with others.  This will become a piece of the next generation of “social.” The difference between our current and this next-gen of social will be found in the finer-grain AND fuller metrics and representations of our personal authenticity and identity.
We have  been steadfastly moving toward a human evolution-revolution for quite some time and this is, I believe, the first human generation that will make this idea tangible via data, metrics and representation of the human “Self” as a psycho-social evolving entity with a parallel development of human synergetic connectivity.
Our current prescriptions  for social synergy are extremely course-grain in comparison to what we will be seeing soon as “social accountability” morphs into a more innately personal social-authenticity. We will be seeing metrics that represent our unique evolution of our authentic Self as the new form of an and more and more coherent Identity over the years.
These personal-as-in-Self measures will be learning, development and personal (and intimate) evolution “mirroring” metrics for each of us. They will be mirrors of our progression towards the realization of our most genuine and “real” and potent personhood. Technology will for the first time help us better see and become our essential Self’s. Social’s amazing evolution-revolution will be forcing each of us to become more of – the who, why and what of – our innately gifted Self’s.
This is the ultimate path for personal and social accountability, is it not?

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

And this will be difficult time for many of us whose life to date has been lived founded upon powerful yetextrinsic models and social motivators;, i.e. those of us that have been living symbolic lives, and even become highly successful both monetarily and professionally in the process. Monetary success is NOT a valid metric for human accountability, as many of us already know, nor is professional stature necessarily a metric for personal authenticity.

The best news? This will happen so much the sooner and evolve into a positive common and learned awareness within the lives of our children.

Coming to Know Our “Life-Passion” is… Tough To Do!

leave a comment »

Knowing our “true” Passions takes an unusually fine degree of personal awareness; and at its most basic level, a consciousness of one’s Innate & Natural Self… and this is the rub.

There is simply a great deal we don’t know about what makes up a human “Self” and certainly not near enough self knowledge to be certain and secure in the fact that we “think” of as our “passion” is truly that which we are meant do with our lives. 

If knowing our true life-work passion, our purpose in life, were easy 99% of the global population would be doing something else with their life.

What many people choose to “think” is their life-passion is typically not. Though it is ALWAYS a “good idea”, even brilliant, and/or something having social benefit and value, but is not what we were born to do with our lives… with our Self in the purposeful living of our life. This is a sad fact. 

Gift-Knowing Demands Having Ah-Ha's about our Ah-Ha's

Hey, but there is good news coming. The good news is that questions about how to define a “Self” have begun to appear online and with some global volume and frequency (“Aha!”, says Oprah).  As we begin to answer these questions we also begin to reveal an understanding of what makes a human being, each of us, unique.  This answer then naturally begets further queries about what we are naturally enabled and “born” to do.  And these answers lead us to a more fine-grain understanding of what a unique Self’s true “life-work-as-life-passion” is all about.

Quite often our sense of what we feel passionate about does not come from within us. It comes from without. It is more a “passionate life-work affair” and is not what we were destined to do with what makes us essentially unique. 

The Fact: If it is a true life-passion then by default that “passion” MUST be founded and fueled by our innate and natural Gifts & Dispositions…
https://imonad.wordpress.com/2011/01/09/how-to-recognize-our-innate-and-natural-gifts-the-source-of-our-true-self-part-i/

This is what makes each of us YOUnique and this is the only foundation to build from vs. an attachment to an externally valued (perceived social valuation) life passion which may be very strongly felt, and believed at some level, but is not supported by that which we are BORN to do; by our innate Self… our organic unique-ness.

This latter form of human passion is not purely intrinsic to our “Self” and the energy reservoir need to effectively pursue these paths will, by design, effectively run dry.

Now with the real deal, the native creativity and energy we have access to from within our true Self – that is fueled and founded on our natural Gifts – provides us a reservoir of infinite depth, fueling us naturally while we live out a YOUnique, gift-aligned life-work; while we live our truest path of passion.

Introducing… The Human Singularity (… with the technology singularity in its supporting role)

with 5 comments

The Tech-Singularity is not alone… there exists another movement that is THE direct and harmonic counterpoint that remains predominantly unknown.
 
And perhaps “counterpoint” is the wrong word to use, though illustrative. My thoughts, and even my visceral sense, e.g. feelings, on this matter have led me to the proposition that there is an unstoppable and infinitely progressive “global human” movement afoot for which the technology-singularity activity is acting in a supporting and accelerative role. On the subject of “Technology-Singularity”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technological_singularity
 
So what is hidden that remains un-named and that 
our emergent Technology-Singularity may be, in fact, supporting?
 
Spiral Vortex

Emergent Singularity Visualized as a Spiral Vortex

In reality this unknown and parallel movement is really not so difficult to comprehend. If we simply look around us today, perceiving more wholly all the pieces of what’s been happening and changing in our lives as fragments of an interconnected and evolving whole, we can capture a sense of its presence.

Peering through this new and more conscious lens – polished by the variables of the complex human psyche, and our social, ecological and spiritual realities – we catch site of the reason and purpose of our exciting and new technological universe. After all, there must be a purpose for it all; a purpose founded, to date without conscious intent, on our own evolution.

Do we really think all that is going on right now, before, and into the future with our technology, is an accident… a multi-verse joke? The purpose of the technology should connnect to something about humanity, right? It should have meaning and value and intrinsically defined direction.

I propose that purpose as fundamentally grounded by our own evolution as individuals within an inherently, though to-date relatively non-manifest,  synergistic system of individuals.

And that this system is innately determined to accelerate the unfolding potential of individual minds within an emergent system of minds.

I think we are responsible for the course of the evolution of technology, I also think we don’t know why.

Since the advent of the Internet…
(ARPANET: http://www.isoc.org/internet/history/brief.shtml )
…something within us has been trying to come through, push through.  Today we have this new world of social-networking but we were destined to produce this essentially mind-interactive space.  Our minds demanded it.  We needed it for a reason, a purpose.

I believe there is a human-nature-evolving motivation for our technological movement that to-date has yet to be defined nor given its proper place in the scheme of things. I propose to use the term “The Human Singularity” for this movement.

2 Emergent Singularities Meet to become One

Critical Balance: The Coming Convergence of Two Complementary Emergent Movements (Source: http://bit.ly/93mfns)

Each and every human being on the planet is a evolving-node of an as yet unrealized human-eco-system. This always-evolving mind-matrix will be more innately and potently singular via the emergent qualities of humanity’s expression of it’s progressively unifying Self. The singular expressiveness will be defined by its synergy. This continuously evolving expression of an evolving humanity – a mind-of-minds – will always precede and guide our technology.  We cannot see this yet, nor act on it with intention, because the idea has yet to be fully articulated, embraced and integrated into our consciousness and technological frameworks.

The potential intelligence of this evolving matrix of interconnected human “Self’s” cannot be assessed, nor even imagined at this point in our history.  This fuller and more complete wholeness as a human ecosystem is what I believe “humanity” has been moving towards, and yearning for in fact, since the very beginning of our conscious awareness as a species.

Think Gaia with frontal-lobes applied with intention.

Each of us, as uniquely, genetically disposed, significant and evolving individuals, has an optimal web-of-connections within this organic global human matrix. Further, we are destined to have and live a gift-driven  life-purpose as a function of our uniqueness. With the discovery (resonance-of-human-complements = synergies) of those other significant Hu-connections and living this form of Self, our lives acquire greater meaning.

In generations to come the coherence and awareness of our individual uniqueness, and from this our personal and innately defined life-purpose, will make the ecosystem profoundly more powerful, more intelligent.

The concept The Human Singularity will not be fully understood until a more conscious awareness of our innate and gift-driven Self’s, much less the relationship of that gift-driven Self’s within an inherently interconnected whole. (See: https://imonad.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/weme-metrics/)

The intelligence and power of The Human Singularity is based on the degree of synergy among its parts. We as uniquely gifted individuals are those parts of a global and synergistic human matrix.

The degree of total Hu-synergy of Hu-ecosystem then is directly related to the degree of coherence and clarity of each Self within the system.

I see the purpose of the technology singularity in a core supporting role for the accelerated unfolding of our awaiting Human Singularity, not as a separate or somehow super-human movement.

The key to our being able to bring about this more whole, intelligent and synergetic human ecosystem is through the more effective learning and development of each human part or facet… our Self. We can’t know and live more powerfully synergistic lives unless we better know (and then intentionally act on and live) our innate and natural dispositions and gifts.

This is an idea of Self seen as one’s Significant-Self. 

http://ejmmm2007.blogspot.com/2009_06_01_archive.html)

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

Until we learn to intentionally develop this next generation(s) of human “Self”, much like we learn to read and write today, we cannot know the experience of human synergy. We will not, until then, realize and experience the incredible harmonies (Hu-synergy as Hu-overtones?)  that can exist within a global eco-system of uniquely competent and purposeful human beings.

First, how do we define a human ecosystem? The story, the new lexicon, message needs both academic as well as curricular, and all-media popular representations. It needs to be formed, articulated and represented so that we can see it, feel it, live it. With these insights beginning to become more internalized we can then begin to recognize the daily and yearly evolving life-process-reality within our new Self’s.

This brings to the fore the idea of an internal and individual “Singularity-of-Self.” 

A Self-Singularity necessitates a form of internal convergence.  This convergence within each of us must occur through the coming together of parts or facets of our Self’s. These Facets-of-Self are our innate dispositions.  Each of us as individuals are born with unique set of natural dispositions (gifts). As each of us discovers these gifts and dispositions we then learn over time how they combine and weave together. It is the convergence of our gifts that   moves us along the inexonerable and unique paths we were born to travel in life.

The lexicon and language and meaning needs a solid foundation and must dovetail into the current thought space. Even the simple idea of an evolving Self has as yet no ubiquitous alignment among humanity… we aren’t even close. Further, the knowable and felt idea of a global matrix of unique Self’s as a singular whole is even further out there.

Where to begin? Well, first we need to be able to have a (simple :-)) conversation about this new reality.

In order to do that we need to have an ontology and associated taxonomy. This human singularity ontology would frame the reality of an evolving human ecosystem, as well as, its core intrinsic dynamic processes.

This ontology and taxonomy must, by nature, play well with existing cultural beliefs, ideologies, and religions. It must also be easily shareable and applicable for the global public. More so, the ontology-as-model needs to be fully and warmly and viscerally embraced. Finally, in terms of popular expressions for teen and tween acceptance and application it needs to be perceived as “cool.”

Without a way of speaking about and defining the process and innate facets of an evolving and unique human “Self” we can’t communicate nor most effectively connect Self-to-Self(s). Without expression our innate human eco-system, its intelligence, power and synergetic potential, will continue to unfold in shadow, as it has to date, with continued attrition of the human psyche as the cost of not acting.

We need to deliver the what, why, how, and my favorite, the “so-what” of it.

Only then can we accelerate-by-design and intention the manifestation of this new and needed reality – within and between the minds of humanity, from generation to generation. Beginning in this one. Beginning with us.

As it happens 🙂 … I have developed such an evolutionary ontology and associated evolutionary (process) taxonomy. This process-model speaks to discovering and managing the development of the innate human uniqueness within and between each of us. It does so in a manner that is universal to all while applying uniquely to each individual.

(See http://www.letoonz.com/about_le_co.html (old website same content) and  http://letoonz.wordpress.com/2009/10/09/letoonz-in-general/ for the ontology and taxonomy as represented to be known and felt by the masses, beginning with our children.)

Ah-Ha Image - Vr2009
Ah-Ha’s … big and small…
Our ability to experience and know human synergy between ourselves and others is completely dependent on the degree we know and have developed our unique gifts and dispositions.  The degree of Self-clarity mirrors for us the clarity of seeing and living our unique life purpose and do so with others-in-synergy.

These are all connected – our natural and innate gifts and dispositions, our uniqueness, our natural and incredibly powerful synergy with others, our life direction and ultimate purpose. These connections are our world, a more whole and powerful and intelligent human ecosystem – an ecosystem made up of healthy and passionately interwoven beings… an alive and breathing and forever-evolving whole.

The Human Singularity is very real – though as yet non-manifest in our consciousness. 

We simply haven’t evolved to the horizon of the sighting.  When we do reach this threshold a more evolved, powerfully and creatively connected humanity awaits,  forever traveling the path of evolving human wholeness, fueled by the evolution of its constituent parts… fueled by an “Us” evolving. 

The Emergent Singularity and Quantified-Self Movements are the Perfect Fulcrums for EcoMind, The Evolution-Revolution and the Associated Universe of Coming Evolutionary Technologies

We’ve been moving towards this Singularity “idea” and evolving reality for some time, and to date, this is by far the most optimal platform to launch an Ecology-of-Mind & EvoTech Industry

Singularity University Logo

The link provided, and topics from this link listed below, concern this Singularity movement, which now lends itself to and even points towards the stepping stone for the emergence of a more common understanding, and belief in, an Ecology-of-Mind awareness.

In short, the Singularity marketplace and naturally migrating dialogue is by far the most evolved and credible business platform so far for the EcoMind/EcoTech message to dovetail from.

EcoMind concerns the “motiv” or motivation and the underlying reason for the disciplines, unifying correlates and patterns, and predicted convergences presented within the Singularity movement….

As expressed throughout this EcoMind blog, I see this motivation founded on the innate and fundamental need(s) of the uniquely expressive human mind/brain/BEing, and in the aggregate… moved by an implicate human ecosystem.  This motivation is now just becoming obvious and more tangible as a marketplace in and of itself.

Simply put, the human mind thrives and therein needs to mine, discover, assess and experience optimal Human Synergies.

LeToonz, LeCozmos, LeModel, etc. (https://imonad.wordpress.com/2009/09/25/future-connecting-our-younique-ah-has-and-path-of-ah-has/are all facets of EcoMind (or OneMind as I have called it previously – 1999-2004ish) and they exist to provide this critical missing link.

http://ejmmm2007.blogspot.com/2009_06_01_archive.html)

Online data aggregation and analysis can provide a solid starting point in the representation of our Evolving Self(s)

That missing link is a form of SELF consciousness or a fuller and deeper and to-be-more-common literacy of Self-Knowing.  Higher, fuller Hu-Synergies are now occurring local2global on a scale never seen before, yet still, only within a niche of the global humanity.

This idea/reality of fuller and truer and therein more intentionally active SELF-Consciousness (based on individual and YOUnique innate gifts, dispositions-as-resonance’s) needs a  business-acceptable platform for the common BEing and this platform is a form of common literacy, much like the now very common 4R’s that will somehow evolve into a becoming  common 4r’s + C in 2-3 genrations time and among common folk vs. TheNiche population.

Here’s another instantiation of the ready-to-emerge EcoMind/EvoTech prediction as supported by an underlying movement that has gained tangible momentum globally and within less than 24 months.

The "Quanitified-Self" has Emerged

The “Quantified-Self” wavefront speaks directly to “self metrics” and representations of the human unique self and will also begin to build natural correlations among our Self’s based on these course grain bio and physio-logical data points as they are (dominantly physiologial and genetic at the moment (www.23andme.com) but not psycho-physio resonances at the moment) …
QS is also motivated by our innately born and focused yet still nascent and niche consumer yearning to know and understand more fully the who, what, why and how of our YOUnique Self and Eco-system-of-Self’s: http://www.quantifiedself.com/ … a more fundmental super-singularity is found in this force of nature I term OneMind, as an Ecology-of-Mind movement, that is driven without effort, but by our most innate and pure nature, to optimize Human and Hu-systems synergies for as long as we survive gloriously.

Responses to “LeToonz on/in LeWave”

While I understand the concept, and have felt many of the Ah-Ha’s we have spoken about, I find that I am searching for the “moment” … It is not quite Ah-Ha but it is enlightening and it is a learning moment. There is Ah-Ha and then there is the “Oh-No”(?)

Hi Lou,

Funny that… my father asked the same question when I introduced him for the first time to my work in the early 1980’s.  He asked, “So what’s an “oh-oh”!

I see these as predictive ah-ha’s with an anticipated down-side – same two syllable utterance though, which I think is a cool connection. This two-syllable, viscerally and cognitively motivated expression (and the two other below), is ubiquitous among all human ethnic populations around the world (… and I’ll prove it someday too. Help anyone? “Ah-so” – Japanese version. We all know that one.)

Ah-ha, “aahhh” and “ha-ha” are the three big primal human utterances (Oh-oh is right up there but 1st cousin to ah-ha I suspect) and many have repeated the work of Arthur Koestler concerning these three.

My take on it is that these three primal utterances we ALL make are psycho-physiologically interconnected, and ah-ha is the result of a juxtaposition and combination of what happens within us when we experience aahhh and ha-ha together.

(Lateral shift… ) What I find amazing is the “social” choice people make to NOT overtly indicate or express the fact they have experienced and insight. It appears we are “cooler” folk if we hold back acknowledging the experienced and fact that other human beings may have assisted up in learning something new. Amazing, huh.  Typically a male phenomena but I am sure women are just as adept at choosing not to show they learned anything new from anyone, in other words we prefer to not show our human-ness. Now these same “knew-it-already’s” (Not!)  will no doubt say “ah-ha” and “aahhh” and “ha-ha” out loud if it serves their selfish strategic motivations… to get ahead in their own wicked way…. It all depends on who is there to embrace, impress and connect to, like the Boss, a new client or new “friend.”I

t is as if learning something new from anyone else is something less intelligent, unprofessional and unevolved people do. How ironic. I have seen people actually fight off saying “ah-ha” out loud and in public, to ensure not sharing the collegial connection and social-learning intimacy. It’s sadly, sadly hilarious to me.

It is Time to Measure Our Ah-Ha's and Our Patterns of Insight... Our "Paths-of-Ah-Ha"

I think the minute we begin to share the experience of ah-ha itself in real-time and with others around us or connected to us, and do so overtly, whether it be in a crowded elevator or workshop, office, food store, or elbow to elbow at the breakfast joint countertop, and we directly communicate it, we say “I just had an ah-ha.” Not over jolly or clown-like but matter of fact with the natural grin  that comes with “most” ah-ha’s.

I think the minute we let others (in) know that they helped us, directly or indirectly, in achieving this phenomenal moment-of-insight – big, medium or small – that these moments of personal human “evolution-synergy-sharing” will slowly but surely transform the quality of human consciousness-of-relationship  significantly, forever and for the betterment of all our lives and that of our planet.
