Identifying emergence GEN001

A possible narrative framework: Generative dialogue —> Content —> Form (structure) —> Aesthetics  —> Meaning —> Intention alignment —> Action potential —> Self-organizing intention realization —> rinse. repeat. rinse. repeat. what role does chaos play in this process? the existence of free radicals generates new trajectories.  how can we design and amplify this emergent synchronicity?

Clean money

The sociocultural and economic context in which the Emergence Collective operates will need some “backwards-attention” in order to smoothly emerge. Often the question of earning ones living is dwarfed by thoughts of positive innovation and peace on earth.

Let’s Make a Movie!

I have been testing various means for restructuring the digital video production process for the last several years, often blurring the boundary between audiences and participants.

What it takes to save the world.

Last night Venessa and I were discussing our desire to style ourselves as superheros when we describe the essential qualities of each member of the collective. References to games, such as Magic the Gathering, figured prominently in our imagination. Yet there was a mutual feeling that more research could be useful to determine the typical […]

We can have our cake and eat it too.

The question is: is it any way to start a business? To plan things out in the open? No closed doors. No silos. Let’s try this; this fearless exhibition and exploration. Here’s what we know so far: We want to create a brand network entity with an impressive project-based portfolio. Our identity will be people-focused, […]
