Life-Work gains more direct support in the academic space with new publication: “Self Comes to Mind”

A recent book publication by neuroscientist Antonio Damasio:  Self Comes to Mind: Constructing the Conscious Brain http://bit.ly/iMKXy4 …is another indication that “TheWork” here has been on the right path. 

Since 1986 I’ve been focused on a specific question. As it turns out this singular question is intimately connected to a number of other critical and interrelated questions.

The core question has always been: How do we discover, develop and value our innate, gifted and naturally unique Self.

Some of the critical interrelated questions follow:

Why is an awareness of our innate Self, and Self-Evolution knowledge, critical to the health of the human species, as a naturally interconnected macro-organism called humanity? (Think Gaia with Frontal Lobes 🙂 ) 

What does individual Self-Evolution have to do with the quality of everything else in our life? 

What does knowing, living and valuing one’s innate Self have to do with quality of: our relationships; our career choices; and our parenting? 

How is it that in consciously living our gifted Self we will come to know our true Life-Purpose: that a more conscious knowledge of Self connects each of us more directly with our Life Purpose.

Why is it not obvious that in valuing and living our Self and our Purpose we positively affect our health habits; our immune system; and increase our productive working synergies with other people?

Finally, how does the intentional living of a more coherent, gift-founded and driven Self enhance the quality and quantity of human social synergy?

The Solution as a System:

All of these questions have been considered as a system of inherently interrelated processes – as a singular system. The combination of content system and business system is used in the solution.

LeModel – as illustrated through the characterizations and imagery of LeToonz and LeCozmos, and the associated and proposed system of products and services is the content dimension: http://letoonz.wordpress.com/ and https://imonad.wordpress.com/

 G.E.T.TheVision is the business systems dimension: http://getthevision.wordpress.com/

The two of these combined dimensions are what I believe to be a very powerful and effective answer to each and every one of these questions – as a singular system’s oriented solution.

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

This is a Churchill Club Event (20091010):

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

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.
