There is truly AWESOME activity underway – but I feel it is all at the same level. My metaphor are clouds at different altitudes. The moisture rises and spreads at the appropriate climatic levels, filling the sky with intricate activity. Later, beams pierces upward from the cloud and moisture rises to another, higher, level and some begins to spread and organize. I feel we need to move some of our action trying to discover that higher level. I find this metaphor severely lacking, but it is all I have at this time.
What we are doing at this level are composing and exchanging and commenting on semiotic structures, SEMS. That is all I do online, read and compose sems. Some of my sems hint to another level, but they are only sems at this level, and the distinction goes um-noticed or noticed and forgotten. I think there are a great many sems hinting to the new level, but they yet ARE: but SEMS at this level.
I can’t grasp what kind of activity will occur at the next level. Counter to the layer metaphor, it will involve weaving and doing something with the sems at lower levels. The HOLARCHY of the nu Humanity is emergent.
I desperately now want to share with you a short “poem” I wrote a few years ago titled: JABBER, JABBER, JABBER. Which is the activity at the level we are now functioning. Quality JABBER and less. I NEED A WAY TO INDEX AND SEARCH MY ARCHIVES !!! Please point me in the right direction to accomplish this.
Glisten, you keep promoting a Wiki with the intent of our being able to begin to construct a SINGLE SEMIOTIC ENTITY, a cause for which I am very supportive. But, would this be only a linked set of SEMS, and not what I/we vaguely imagine for our SINGLE SEMIOTIC ENTITY (SSE), or Global/Planetary Mind/Brain. SSE may be a cyborg, human and machine. The means by which SSE interacts with interacting humans is as important as the computerized structure of SSE. And by “humans” I refer to the nuet-like inner-woven worlds within each of us.
I intuit that the power agency in our future emergence will be from CYBERCREWS. Individuals, no matter how competent and how supported by networks, can’t do what is needed. We persons will learn to be an integral part of CYBERCREWS as well as doing our own “thing” as emergent humans. I speculate that many cybercrews will also (at times) be F2F Expedition-in-Time (on “retreats”) using Colab Studios. We probably will have second level cybercrews whose components are first level cybercrews, whose components will be human persons. This will be the emergent “physiological architecture” of the Societal Butterfly to replace the corporations & nations of the Era of Caterpillar Civilizations. I sense this can manifest very quickly once initiated. Many of the tools/techniques being developed in level 1 can be applied to level 2.
ALL OF THIS is speculative and tentative. I REALLY feel that where we are ultimately going is NOT where we currently imagine. I deeply feel that the cloud/crowd/hive metaphors are not sufficient. They are a frame for us to comprehend some processes, but the PRECISON-OF-FIT we find in the bio-molecular structures of life will be also need to exist in the psycho/cultural/spiritual structures of emergent Humanity.
