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?

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.

* I have written extensively on this and other naturally correlated movements beginning in 1986. Some of this writing can be found here in this Ecology-of-Mind blog,  as well as in: http://letoonz.wordpress.com and http://GETTheVision.wordpress.com.

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.

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. 

How do you see the Human Mind (as ecosystem) Mirrored within, and/or Projecting itself into, our Technology?

Let’s use this space to speak about specific examples of this overarching intent of the human mind as it works through us to nurture and develop us and bring the “best fits” of minds together through time.

One of the main assumptions in this EvoTech Group is that the human mind is in “purposeful control” of the ultimate direction and nature of the development and application of our technology over time and to: help us to more effectively work together; develop our talents, skills and “Self”; discover and optimize synergies in human relationships… (… and all in parallel IMO) AND to allow us to live in some form of harmony amongst ourselves and globally and to survive gloriously on this mortal planet upon which we survive.

It is assumed some of us are actively designing, building and selling (etc) new technology (over time) and that some of these technologies are acting more directly within this agenda than other technologies; and that others of us, most all of us in fact are applying, live with, and are using these technologies in our daily lives. The Users evolve the technology through living-application and so WE – our minds – are all involved in the evolution of our evolution, in an ecosystem of minds which as a whole has an agenda…. to bring us together in the most powerful and optimal ways…

Nothing is a greater turn on people than frictionless, simply beautiful and productive and creative and powerful (even sexy) human working synergy.

“… and the roots of rhythm remain…”

with one comment

(Quote borrowed from: Song: Under African Skies//http://lala.com/ztNB//Album: The Essential Paul Simon/Paul Simon)

Note to a “colleague of life”

I can always tell when you (and others) are not so busy… you talk more to the world.  Or maybe “we/they” just get something in our craw that just won’t let go until we vent.

In either case I really enjoy theses implicate/explicate-like rhythms –  people’s pulsing in and out with a certain and interesting periodicity – in the socnet spaces. Not so much the people trying to draw up business and/or to impress for the sake of impression; more the one’s who have a “purposeful gift-driven life”, conscious or not, and just have something to say that they have a deeper sense of being worth sharing and now simply saying out loud to the world and from one moment of explication to the next.

The Design (Purpose) of The Internet?

leave a comment »

“I live’n’breathe the “how”, “why” and “so what” of the “design/purpose” of Internet as it relates to individual human and human systems (social) development, seen as an evolutionary process.

And specifically, I am most thoroughly sustained by considering and working on answers to the how, why and so-what of the Internet’s dynamic, direct and NATURAL role in supporting the how, why and so-what of individual human evolution and in parallel humanities synergistic evolution.

The most obvious reflection of the human mind is seen in our internet movement as it is most obviously reflective of both the connectivity nature of the human brain and the manifestion of that brain in the evolution of our personal Self and further in the evolution of the connectivity of personal Self’s globally.

My work and writing speaks to essential and magical pragmatism (Yes, pragmatics can be magical, ask Williams James) of the “why” of the internet” as a function of an innate and unstoppable, although seemingly detour prone, process of individual, innate and gift-based human evolution… and whole human-systems gift-based or gift-centric social evolution, and more specifically, the evolution of 1) an individual and naturally disposed and gifted human mind, and 2) all of these human minds doing that same thing.

… and a “why the internet exists” design/purpose founded on the innate NEED of all these evolving and inherently gift-driven-at-the-core human minds finding fuller and better and more synergy-rich “connecting” along the way.

My innately disposed preference is to think of the internet as simply a mind-mirror and interactive functional projection and manifestation thereof, the human mind. And over time, guess what, it actually looks more and more like a human cortex, this felt-work of connective tissue, of fibrils, like glial cells and dendridic networks, enmeshed and encapsulating directly, and indirectly and over time, all minds on the planet. And these minds “connected” – consciously, most not – are trying really, really hard – as it is what they are designed to do… is their ultimate and pre-ordained purpose – to be all they can be… to be innately and naturally gift-driven and along the way, trying very, very hard to more effectively resonate (socnet) and connect (socnet) to optimizing “partners” along the way, and over generations of our humanity.

It is this fundamental process and direction of human evolving that feeds the evolution of da’Net itSelf, and reciprocally, the further evolution of the natural and innately disposed and gifted human Self.

Nice that the internet helps in all this, and was mirror-designed in fact, for that express purpose, whether we see it as such or not, i.e. it’s purpose within and without and pertaining to the unfolding unknown.

Thanks for listening and don’t hesitate to constructively comment.

How Much More Proof Do We Need Before We Known A “Movement” Exists?

leave a comment »

This is a Churchill Club Event (20091010):

Outsourcing Personal Memory: The Benefits and Challenges of Capturing Yourself Digitally:

http://bit.ly/GBellSaysSo

After 30 years I have found that most of us are not “see-ers” but need to be shown.

As some of you know, I look for “proofs” as market and pre-emergent instantiations of this (my) work in two interconnected spheres: the existience of a tangible and literal Ecology-of-Mind, and what I have referred to since the 90’s as “Evolutionary Technologies.” (See G.E.T. The Vision – https://imonad.wordpress.com/2009/07/31/g-e-t-the-vision-defined/ )

Those proofs-as-indicators (tremors) show that a broad and deep and life penetrating movement is underfoot and that its’ emergence is more wholistic and interconnected than anything we have seen and known before.

I think this above event example (along with many others and in various forms) is just one more concrete representation of two emergent movements that are happening all around us, and acting jointly in a natural parallel and symbiotically process.

1) An emergent Ecology-of-Mind is becoming more apparent and technology is now showing just how emphatically it has been affected in feature, function and design through an unconscious mirroring and projection of the human mind upon it.
2) An emergent individual human and global cultural need and tools to satisfy that need is beginning to articulate itself – that being the need to come to know, as in more consciously come to know, our innate and natural SELF(s). Massive social-networking and social-gaming movement are obviously representative (both directly and inversely) of this intrinsically founded human effort, and the innate need of the “human being” to better know its’ true nature, its’ true Self.

In terms of market movements and transformations…stand way back and consider this… Is it not simply amazing that a applied neuropsych PhD may now find themselves building human behavior and adaptive and predictive perception/cognitive data pattern algorithms within a socnet or socgame newco or is in a back room at Google, FB, Hi-5, Microsoft or LinkedIn doing the same?! Don’t you find this career shift at all interesting!? I am guessing you have to have lived outside of the wave to see the wave, or long enough to know it is one of interconnected others in the context of time.

SELF-representation is a good first step, but the ontology of SELF-evolution is missing, and this is what I think I bring to the party.

There is always an inverse and the inverse here is the negative pressure results of not coming to better know, not coming to be more conscious of… our TruSelf.

I could easily proof the validity of my work by using an inverse approach, i.e. “…this is this way because of a lack of equal and opposite positive pressure that would look like this in the market and in our lives…”

But nobody buys those inverse arguments. Do they?

Thanks for listening. Now, let me know if these “movement thoughts” resonate to you.
