Time Capsule Reality
We live life in a time capsule that has been delivered by pioneers that came before us and who captured the essence of their experience, delivered it to our birthplace, and beckoned us to enter its current confines. We have now begun to capture our own experience and encapsulate it for future use by the succeeding generations to whom we will likewise deliver it.
F. David Peat, relates it this way, that we will have to become – “…well adapted to the quantum world, for this is a world less about objects in interaction than about transformation, superposition, flux, and the inseparability of observer and observed”
OK, so what do we do now, or prepare for next? How can we become both the observer and the one experiencing the results of our observations and decisions? In that rhetorical question lies the obvious answers: 1 – we already are. 2- we need a constant feedback loop. 3- we need a 360-degree viewpoint from multiple representatives. 4 – we must cooperate through that shared insight. Then, how can we leverage our collective past so that WE can mutually survive?
Perhaps we have finally reached a tipping point and are ready to LISTEN… between the words of poets and prophets and rappers and rebels for that thread of value that can be woven into the fabric of tomorrow. Perhaps the rank of our social positions will matter much less than the nature of our social interactions – the LEVERAGE of our ‘collaboration on purpose’. Perhaps we are ready to LIVE beyond the coercive walls of cultures, organization charts, and political boundaries in a dynamic environment of sustained progress and mutual benefit. Perhaps that will both introduce and require a quantum shift in our approach.
Indeed, that quantum shift has already begun and it is happening at the speed of light – projected through the screens of our computers, cell phones, and multiple other devices that enable and capture that experience in real time. Don Tapscott, author of ‘Wikinomics’ reminds us that our ‘smart’ appliances have already joined us in these quantum dimensions of inter-operable communication, reacting to our online prompts, or prompting us in turn.
What are we learning from our past, experiencing in our present, and encapsulating for our future – if there is one?
What data, conversations, collaboration, insight, consensus, and cooperation are now needed? What are the resulting conditions that we are creating and experiencing – and re-considering and then changing?
And who controls all that? …’WE’ do..!!
The capsule IS being loaded – what is to be YOUR contribution?
And who cares?
What’s about YOU? – care to comment?
– dare to COOPERATE?
