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

leave a comment »

Self-Quant to Self-Evolution Crossroads (Image Source:

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.”

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.

What is the Distinction between Human Learning and Human Evolving… and how is Mobile Learning technology involved

leave a comment »

Evolution is quite distinctive from learning.  I have tossed and turned around the intersection of these spaces since graduate school Neuropsychology days at Stanford (Dr. Karl H. Pribram-advisor)… since 1984. The difference or distinction applies to a human awareness of our YOUnique “Self.”

The mobile space folds hu-connection. The folding of productive or operational space/time (e.g. productivity/time migration: smoke signals-2-letters-2-FedEx-2-encrypted/signature email-2-IM/Skype-2-MobileSkype) is also a byproduct of tech advances.

To learning-to-evolve is quite a bit different than to evolving-to-learn.  Meta-learning for example concerns the necessary cognitive abilities to make learning happen with intention, habitually, and to also, one hopes but not necessarily, to learn how we learn as unique learning and evolving human beings.   This is where the migration to learning-to-evolve as individuals and (ever greater potentialities of) synergistic systems of individuals begins.

Hu-Evolution, in my nutshell, starts with our natural genetic dispositions which are innate and distinctive for each and every one of us… this being the developmental foundation for what makes us “special” (our Purpose (and our core “learning” direction in life) is and should be based on our unique-ness) and therein how we can become more and more innately complete and therein more coherently (progressive potentiations of greater hu-synergy/time) synergistic with others.

We can only hope that all of our learning experiences move us in the direction of evolving our uniqueness as individuals; and from this movement do the same within and throughout global systems of individuals, e.g. teams, couples, families, companies, cultures.  Our life environments both trigger and nurture these innate and unique personal dispositions, or not, and to varying degrees between.

Mobile Learning can support Mobile-Personal Evolution only if it focused on applications that provide insight and support integrated cognitive, visceral and behavioral action in this regard. This is my life-work (

I am not sure you have noticed but there is a great and tangible yearning in the world right now for personal sense of what one might term a “true-self” – as one’s uniqueness seen and felt more clearly and coherently; and from this, a personal sense of meaning and purpose based on this fundamental foundation of the person.  (Oh, and this has nothing to do with our “character development” curriculum or much touted “self-esteem” thinking…  This is new territory).

I called this The Great Yearning.  You have all seen the explosion of quick (superficial) and “fun” self-evaluation quizzes.  For example: “What kind of drink are you?”, “What kind of Asian are you?” (I kid you not),”What kind of Soul are You?” (, etc, etc.  This is a real indication of, and reaching-out for , “a  learning” that the market of human beings is screaming for help with.

More than ever before (at least now quantifiably manifest within the soc-net app space) the question of genuine-ness, and by natural extension, a more genuine quality in human-connectivity is being spoken of, both directly and indirectly.  Learning what makes us for a “genuine” human being  is no different than learning, and then living (daily), the who, what and why of each of us… what makes us YOUnique as individuals and by default, what we are here to do with our lives.

Mobile-Learning can be the platform for insights concerning personal evolution and natural gift-centric  and innate dispositional-centric assessment over time, day-by-day and these are mobile apps (as a suite) I am currently working on.

Without knowing who and what and why we are (with the how, when/where and so-what part of the question-matrix) … we unfortunately “learn” (mobile or otherwise) without the conscious, guiding foundation of our innate Self, and we tend to be learning and acquiring knowledge through material/symbolic (vs. significant or naturally-driven) motivations, and as a universal (almost) consequence evolve without intention or design, i.e. market and external driven learning motivations.

This has not been “crossed” this road yet, it is directly before us. It is the next frontier. Welcome to the Evolution-Revolution, or what my students chunked, and called, “The EvoReVo!”

Mobile as Hu-Evolution Agent

This Hu-Evolution Movement has been brewing since humankind started using its frontal lobes… “Self-Creative” or autopoietic thought and behavior are now an emergent and quantifiable Hu-reality as can be witnessed in the birth and current revolt of Web2.0 and Social Media, VL and all associated technologies; but there are some missing cornerstones and foundation components that need to be in place to allow this movement to be healthfully born and to develop effectively going forward.

hugensPrinciple_2The pressure has been building and I believe the time is upon us to be pro-active in acting-with this “birthing” and to act as facilitator of this explosive new paradigm before us. The water has only broken people; the rest of the baby is still yet to come…

Some people say you can only have so many shifts within a certain psycho-social timeframe… that a certain paradigmatic “refractory period” is needed and this is true, I believe, BUT only as it has applied within our previously hierarchical and male-disposed organizational structures and processes.

I say that the flatter our social order becomes the greater allowable frequency of shifts, movements will occur. If you look around these last 100…..50…..30…15, 10, 5, 2 years you will see just such a phenomena – the paradigm shifts have increased in frequency. This “meta-shift” is, in and of itself, an indication of SELF-Evolving Human and Human collective movement – like ozone before lightening, the rumbling is palatable.

I know you know something is coming. I know you can feel it too.  Some of you may have your own way of seeing it. So many convergent indicators are in the marketplace today.  The holonomic models of Karl Pribram and David Bohm apply well I think to these coming of days and thereafter – to what we as human beings do in our minds and how we change in our behavior over these next generations (I project 3-4 or 100 years) and beginning now, and how mobile is a key component tech in this transformational space/time… today.

People are not just learning content or skills.  They are not simply going to use mobile to learn-to-learn – a new emergent population of humanity that 2%, is now ready to use mobile to Learn-to-Evolve!

Mobile as THE Human evolution-revolution agent is why I am here speaking to you. It is a huge project and huge undertaking and will demand many teams of many synergistic skill sets, and as would be true of any real paradigm shift some of these skills sets have not worked together very often, such as theoretical neuropsychologists and mobile application developers and Personal Knowledge Management specialists and “Self-Quantification” scientists and SQ product development companies. We have seen a few such interactions but not as a fully integrated top-down/bottom-up (chalice-shaped) development process.

Who wants to work on a piece of this collective dance together?
