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

leave a comment »

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.

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

Social Media is a Misnomer…

leave a comment »

…it is not social media it is psychological media or mind-media.

We are not working on behavior directly. All our marketing and message efforts in so-called “social media” is trying to FIRST change or maintain a targeted Human or targeted Collective-of-Human’s perception(s) and pattern(s) of cognition and,  THROUGH THIS most basic strategy and tactical effort, change/maintain a behavior(s) and a pattern(s) of behavior in the targeted Human or targeted Collectives-of-Humans.

“What kind of ????? are You?” The Amazing Yearning… for a Real, True, Unique Self.

with 2 comments

I actually saw “Asian” fill the question marks in the above quoted title of a quiz on Facebook.

It was one of the hundreds of “What kind of ??? are you?” quizzes that have spawned into the online social worldsince 2009. You can “Self” defining quizzes such as “What kind of dog or drunk or animal or  seaweed… you are.”  Here’s a blog post almost 2 years later by someone else on seeing the same pattern: http://webhostblog.com/2009/05/facebook-quizzes/

I see these quizzes as a psychological phenomena in the marketplace. There appears an incredibly pervasive “need” to define one’s Self. Further, the jesting style in many of these Self-revelatory quizzes and then the sharing of Self-quiz results reinforces the high degree of sublimated yearning for validation – the need for some form of discrete personal description – of personal identity and the verification of personal meaning, worth and value.

Scary Amazing!

So, the yearning increases each day and brings us to the obvious question.

How do we SELF-Represent, and better yet, how do we represent our YOUnique-ness!?

Holo_letterA_4m_RealBin2New words and phrases will begin to emerge as well.  Phrases such as TruU, TruSelf… RI-Real Intelligence, YOUnique… Aha-Moment, Self-Rep, RealU, The EvoReVo!

More and more telltale “lingo” will anticipate an extremely exciting emerging market tsunami. It will come in waves over the next 10 years, with one discreet wave making many of us conscious of its arrival.

Ah-Ha!

This is one of the great multi-decade, era-waves coming to crash our life, family, business and technology shores. Actually it has been knocking since the beginning of human time… it is only now that this particular mass-movement can be born – that the technological and psycho-social readiness is in place to resonant and act.

(There are so, so many instantiation of this coming…)

The interpretive process-model by which humanity can see it’s innate and True SELF more clearly and over time…this is the great and emergent quest.

It is the ultimate purpose of technology – to serve the evolution of a uniquely and individually gifted and inherently and powerfully synergistic collective of humanity and over time… (IMHO)

Let us be conscious of that(!), and in the process, and for the first time, be able to make this idea of Human Consciousness actually cool and practical, best yet, embrace it through discreet matricies of measurable variables and patterns by which entrepreneurs can actually make money and we can actually our personhood as a Self-Evolving!

 The autopoietic possibilities involved in human and “HuSys” evolution and getting our arms around “healthfully” accelerating that process… naturally,

…this is THE next big 50-100 year deal.

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.

Proofs and Instantiations of the Next Tsunami – The Human Evolution Revolution!

Proofs in Topology... The Self as a Younique and Comparable Nested Toroid
Proofs in Topology… The Self as a Younique and Comparable Nested Toroid

I am just starting this “The EvoRevo Is Coming!” vision-proof-list” and will attempt to fill it up with more supporting examples.

I have many, many logical (and not so logical but compelling in their own way) instantiations Ican point to and say, “There, you see that! That shows you that it is going to happen for sure!! ” …. and these moments, events, articulated social movements I will be adding are taken from way back in time to more recent social, technological, business and scientific movements and correlated events.

Now… you may have to know a bit about my work to get the drift-design of the following but maybe the bullets will form their own quirky, embracing logic for you… the younique viewer. If the quirky design logic does not emerge for you then there is more than enough backgound materials here to fill in the needed gaps. Sorry, but the chapters of the book are disconnected to a degree or two.

Why? And So What?

Well, if I die and my life-work does not get out there and into the minds of the masses, or an ever growing niche, and do its positive and transformative “thing”, then I would like it to be know that at least I knew something of significance… that at least I had a meaningful original thought.

Please do not hesitate to share/comment on your own “proof” events or movements that support the emergence of this social and technological evolution – this movement towards the discovery and intentional living of our natural human and truly “YOUnique Self(s)” as borne from our innate gifts and dispositions, and that inherently connected movement of coming to best know and live our Purpose,  our life-work, through that gift-aligned and most healthfully and naturally motivated Self.

It has been, and will continue to always be about “distinction” and what makes one thing unique from another. It will also always be about alignment and identification. What will evolve and change is the nature of the alignment and the basis for it… and the consumer and business expenditures controlled by it.

The quality of human and human systesm synergy is controlled by the quality of the “fit”
…or the fit-ness of the human connection.
The Qualty of fit-ness is based on the quality of natural uniqueness.

then…

  • Mutual of Omaha sues Oprah and vice versus in early 2009 over ownership of the phrase “aha-moment” www.ahamoment.com

  • Calvin Klein does a “Be It” brand advertizing spot campaign.
  • Nike does “Do It” but we had it first… www.letoonz.com… what can ya’ do…

But there’s more to come as the variables listed, the LeToonz characters-as-variables, are seen as a whole; as an human and human systems evolutionary process-model.  So far the rest of the world see’s them a isolated pieces… If history is any indication this will change too.

Future human connections, and humanity as a whole, will be founded on finer grain and more genuine representations of our YOUnique SELF’s.

Taken from the “Membership” section, first scribed in ’99 and posted on the LeToonz website in 2004 (www.letoonz.com and now, 10 years later… coming soon to a socnet and multiple other application theatre connected to you!

 

LeToonz Membership

What Will Be!

This will be the “Evo-lationship” Space!

“What’s an Evolutionary Relationship Space”, you ask?

It’s a record of your YOUnique EvoStyle as it evolves.
In the future and right here, your YOUnique EvoStyle will be re-presented in dynamic, living 3D through LeCozmos geometric shapes.

Your LeCozmos SelfEvolvingImage in your own LeCozmos web universe will be shareable and with it you can discover Synergy Fits automatically and world wide or just down the street!

“How’s that!?”

The LeToonz Membership universe begins with You as the buyer of LeToonz and LeWave product.
You have just gotten a direct, Self-Consciousness shot in the heart and head.
You are now thinking about how you YOUniquely AskYourSelf, LetGo have AhHa’s, DoIt and experience Flo in your daily life.
You are now considering your Selfevolution directly! You are just beginning to walk-the-walkin’ down The Path of the TruYou!

This facet of HoloMind.net will evolve too. Initially it will contain your original yet youniquely formatted biographical data.
What will happen next is we will begin to allow you to upload your AhHa’s.
Yea, you will be sharing your own and unique “Path’s-of-AhHa”.
And that’s only one of the LeToonz EvoProcesses-as-characters and as-experiences you will be able to record and re-present in this never before, 3D LeCozmos web universe.

“So What?”

“So What! Are you kidding!”

What would it mean if you could find people having the same AhHa’s on the same day?
It would mean we folded time in terms of connecting people to people as they evolve. We will have folded evolutionary synergy’s. That’s is the hugest!!!

Never before have a number of things happen prior to this time.
One, you are now co-relating your innate and natural and original Self directly: directly as in real-time, day-to-day and in a by-design fashion using LeToonz and recording your EvoStyle.
Secondly, you are now going to be able to connect and resonate to people who are doing the same (or are complements) and more importantly are an evolving Self “fit” for you…
are synergistic to you in ways you could never have imagined! How tight is that?!!
You are going to be able to find synergistic fits with individuals who share your EvoStyle, have common AhHa’s that day, that week, that month.

Get this. Technology to date has folded time while we do what we have already, pretty much, been doin’. Not what we are born to do but what we been doin’.
Connecting with people along your EvoStyle will fold time in TruYou development.
Fold time within a new, consciously “SelfEvolving” humanity.
Never been done, and there are many “in control” who would prefer it never happens.

Imagine that!

We believe we are our Future through our TruSelf’s founded on manifesting and living our natural gifts and dispositions and innate talents… not our History based on unnaturally developed, peer-pushed talents and inorganic, symbolic and market driven dispositions. Pressure!

Anyway, that’s it for now. Much like the LeToonzBlog I have to go and find out everything I can about building 3D animation, real-time, 3D and shared “cospaces” and 3D avatars and blah, blah… Oh yea, and find world class help to make it so.
