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

Our Innate Significance Begets Our Natural Social Purpose – Prescient “EvoLog” circa ’93…

leave a comment »

Prologue
01.17.2010

“EvoLog” is one of many names I have created and used since the early 1980’s to bring new energy and meaning into this subject and typically as an effort to describe an interconnected facet of this very large system of thought… and the now apparently unfolding reality.

I inc’d Psykon Achievement Systems in 1984 with “Psykon” as a word combination of “Psyche” and “Icon” and referring to “representation of the human mind and spirit.”

This meaning-play with words has always come natural for me. Good thing too. When one is describing a “large and new thing” this language-play becomes a serious necessity as a culture’s lexicon at any given time, and at that time a new large thing comes to life, is naturally incompetent to describe the quality of new-ness of that new and grand thing.

I have not seen this document, which I originally scribbled in 1993, for at least a decade (I am guessing here) and came upon it just the other day (January 5th, 2010) and sent it to my colleague Dr. Lou for grammatic tightening.  It is in thought as it was 17 years ago. I have writings from the mid 80’s that speak similarly and more specifically and am trying to get these into a useable format – old vr.’s of software.

I assume “Evolog” stands for “evolutionary logic” but it could have meant “evolutionary log” Star Date… blahdiddly… (but I doubt it knowing my own mind still).  Anyway the piece is dated – and at times not so very much. I hope you enjoy a few good thoughts and futuristic guesses made with this muddled text of mine – done with such great pecking labor. Yes, a grand and pitiful pity this.

BACKGROUND
(circa 1993 // Palo Alto, Ca – Chicago, Il)

If life is learning why didn’t anybody ever tell us that every time we learn something new we have an insight or an Ah-Ha.

Why was the nature of the most fundamental and measurable unit of life not made known to us?

The market, young and old, systems, individuals, and cultures alike, are screaming for the identification of, and bridge between, a universal language-for-learning and human creativity, and the evolution of social purpose and value.

Restated, we are screaming for enlightenment about the value of our insights over time, so we can better understand and then procreate our personal significance and social purpose in life.

We all learn the same way differently.

Faces Flame

Despite the omnipresent nature of learning in human life no common thread, architecture, or universal language-for-learning has been articulated. Further, and until this time, the critically needed social architecture that bridges human and cultural learning to the creation of social value could not be developed. It is the development of one’s innate gifts, or natural competencies that begets personal and cultural significance. It is the unfolding of our significance that evolves our natural Social Purpose; the wonder of creative learning synergies and ultimately our Value as individuals and cultures.

Since 1985, I have predicted the emergence of the Learning/Evolution Technologies Industry.

The “pure-process” industry that cuts across all human endeavors and therefore markets.

This industry, as yet undefined by the financial markets, has gone from hundreds of millions to tens of billions in less than a decade. In the past generation, our Western oriented educational, self-development, or human potentiating, type products became available to the masses through the immense mail order publishing kingdom of audio and audio-video programs and more recently infomercials.

The exploding world of learning technologies for the development of the mind, body and spirit is physically evidenced by the proliferation of larger and larger shelf and floor space (500% or more) dedicated to the potentiating general education, psychology, health/wellness, spirituality, and business success type product sections in U. S. bookstores in the last 5 years alone. Eastern and Middle Eastern influences on our evolutionary product and service “content” are similarly evidenced. The world of human potentiating software and hardware is upon us with devices that provide myriad forms of bio-feedback; board games that analyze your dreams; self-hypnosis programs; and even food for thought as mind-munchies.

With the insurance industry funding Wellness (Mind/Body), and big business, schools and government buying Empowerment (Mind), we have sufficient evidence to support the readiness for the emergence of an industry that cuts across the social and economic development of all industries – the Learning/Evolution Technologies Industry.

Evolog, Inc. is positioned to midwife the birth of this revolutionary movement.

How we begin to achieve and maintain this leadership position is the real question and the inspiration for this proposal.

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.

Our Ah-Ha's and Flo Experiences... A New Platform for "Genuine" Self-Representation.

Our Ah-Ha's and Flo Experiences... A New Platform for "Genuine" Self-Representation.

 (And a neuro-linguist with web based Social Network (SocNet) interest or experience would be good to have on the team as well.)

The Recognition, Passion, Value and Objectives of the Effort: We will be the 1st team/org/work group to represent and correlate and create new value and new global conversation around the nature and patterns of our human insights, and not just the big ones, the Eureka’s, but all insights, the whole spectrum, from small to huge and all those in between. (See Mutual-of-Omaha’s video collection of individual big aha-moments: Mutual-of-Omaha’s Big Aha-Moments Business Movement)

Even though this work is all about “The Creative” and the “enhancement of personal and social value”, and so on, make no mistake, it is also about creating significant wealth for The Team.

Building the “Ah-Ha (Insight) Tracker, Flo Tracker & Path-of-Ah-Ha” SocNet App-Suite is objective #1. (See: https://imonad.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/weme-metrics/)

Other inter-development objectives include:
1) Making the behavior/act of inputting our insights as ah-ha’s “socially cool.” (Oprah and guests Aha! moments)
2) Must be easy and fun to do.
3) Gathering, mashing and mining the data, and data patterns, and discovering “Meta-Insights” and “Meta-Ah-Ha’s” in personal/individual cloud and the interconnected social cloud(s).
4) Delivering distributed and juicy fun chunks of insights about our own insights and about others is a key task… and seeing this in our mobile & various socnet spaces.
5) Connecting people in “event-time” globally and based on correlated symmetries between and “around” their individual insights.
6) Visually represent the data and patterns of insight as data streams in value rich and meaningful ways.
7) Connecting this dynamic 4D data matrix to other db’s both current and emerging that are and will be representing other flavors of human activity such as, personal geo-spatial info, internet content focus behavior patterns, content distribution patterns, email content patterns, people interface patterns… and of course, the individuals stated preferences.

The key is create a new and intrinsically real and more genuine domain of conversation among people, one that has new and deeper and fuller value to individuals as YOUnique human beings… and ultimately the planet itself.  This is all about having insights … about our ah-ha moments… and then as a natural consequence about discovering and living a progressively more natural, innate, genuine and truer Self or TruSelf.

Ultimately it will be about making the idea and the reality of being a more consciously YOUnique and therein genuine individual a cooler and cooler way of living in your life.

Diary = Patterns = Paths & "The Path-of-Ah-Ha" of the planet can be mesaured. TooKelvinKewl!

Diary = Patterns = Paths & "The Path-of-Ah-Ha" of the Planet can be Measured. TooKelvinKewl!

This will be the beginning in Social Networking of the seeing and behaving and living of a new ecology, the Ecology-of-Mind.

And, let us mention this last criterion matrix… The has-to-bee’s:
1) It has to be fun.
2) It has to feel like the NewCool thing to do, to be part of it.
3) It has to be this kind of cool but it also has to last… to have long legs.
4) It has to be Easy to Understand & Easy to Do. EtU-EtD.
5) Oh, and it has to make a massive amount of money sooner than later.

I am really rootin’ for the success of application development folks like those at Goddess-RIF-text:

 http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/GoddessRIF?ref=nf 

….and around this Hu-Geo-Context-Connecting universe as it will ultmately allow others to better “see” value in TheWork.

Hey, we are all connected and some more intimately and future-functionally than others.  This application space, though about connecting to people in space/time as you move about the planet (dating or simply new convo’s partners) will evolve into something much larger… human geo-context pattern measurements will emerge as a very large data metric and human data mining segment of the knowledge business.

In my book, all connecting-apps are moving in a very specific direction (the emergent peripheral apps one can guess at) and that the fundamental flow and direction of this Movement is all about representing the processes and states of individual (and individual systems and (pre) emergent systems) evolution in more and more discrete and illustratable and measurable terms.

Who we are now and who we are becoming.

The key, the next huge leap, will be in “human connect-QUALITY” which means an explosion of “genuine Self” data, TruYou knowledge and metrics and evolutionary real-time pattern data streams – human life-data and patterns of life-data and rivers of patterns of Hu-Life-data that freely intermingles and correlates and creates new “patterns of Hu-Value”… and the apps and Evo-Clouds that compute, deliver, represent, etc. them.

How to define a Gifted-SELF – the Who we are becoming – is the next big human market industry, and entrepreneurs like those at RIF-Text are directly assisting in the birth of this emergent psych0-social and new economic reality.

Yeeha!

We are all unique for a reason (…and as related to mind-centric Tech evolution)

leave a comment »

This is simply why I believe technologies and in particular any form of tech related to human connection (…and learning, performance, development, measurement) are developing the way they are… and if this is in fact the case, it would be good for those of us involved in the development of technology to be made aware of this underlying motivation and affect over time of the human mind upon society and specifically on technology creation.

The really interesting question is why would the mind (as a productive system of already semi connected human minds) want to manifest more and more of it’s features and functionality, and to whatever degree possible, architecture, into our physical, technological systems world.

The motivation IMO has always been obvious.  Minds want to find and produce great work with other minds. Why? Because when two or more minds connect to do some form of work or produce some form of output and each has talents and dispositions that complement the whole of the group, then great work is produced.  It is very simple.  Oh, and they have a blast (fun) doing it. It is the uniquely complementary mix of unique minds that generate the greatest output and fun. What human being, in their right mind, wouldn’t want more and more of this in their lives?

Ask any mind what it really wants, beyond some level of operating comfort. All minds want this synergy experience.  We as unique human beings are drawn to it because our uniquely disposed minds crave it.  Not just connection but powerful connections, which by default generate synergy.

 We are all unique for a reason.  It is what makes us unique that makes our combinations between others unique and potently and productivity powerful.  So uniqueness has a reason too… You have to be unique to have synergy

Mind-based technological evolution is here to make human synergy occur as a habit. To the point, sometime in the future it will be our life-habit as a society, and that to be “in-synergy” at work or in life is considered the moral norm.  In counterpoint then, to not be “in-synergy” at this future social point would be the equivalent of throwing garbage out the window of your plasma car.  Which by then, I am sure, would be a jail-able offense.
