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
