Create ways to make groups work more efficiently. ;-)
19 Feb 2005 @ 03:48 by hgoodgame : Think like the old Chinese -
and do our works with consideration for future generations, not leave them saddled with debt but to have a better world than we do. We do this individually right where we are, look at if we are improving our surroundings or helping with their destruction. We leave every place we've touched a little bit brighter, more beautiful. We don't give until it hurts, we give until it helps!
It takes personal responsibility. And though it's not a 'new' way, it could be a way that works now that we've learned (hopefully) the dangers of great power. (With great power comes great responsibility).
Shakti, I like your idea too, I would put it in terms of global villages, let each gravitate to their own kind.
"It is not necessary to search for peace. It is within. Your original state is one of peace."
19 Feb 2005 @ 22:03 by Andrius Kulikauskas @188.8.131.52 : Snatching your Meaningful concepts
Flemming, I really appreciate your writing, you really flow. You write all sorts of deep thoughts that I don't verbalize, and when I do, then not in such a readable form. So I'll be snatching "meaningful concepts" from you (and also Anthony Judge and others in the Public Domain): http://www.openleader.com/index.php/GlossaryOfStructure/MeaningfulConcepts This one I've put here: http://www.openleader.com/index.php/GlossaryOfStructure/ThingsToDo And I've linked to related ideas: "Constructive Hypotheses" and "Existential Conversation". What do I need to do? That is what I asked myself when I was little: http://www.openleader.com/index.php/GlossaryOfStructure/ExistentialConversation And so that is why I seek to "know everything and apply that usefully". Because I think I might be able to, and I don't see anybody else doing that! Or as I write: "I should take the risks others are not taking". So I think I'll make use of your thoughts in this way. Keep writing! Thank you!

Cool. Snatch away and link away, and thanks for stopping by. I see many interesting subjects popping by on your lists these days. I have a hard time getting the time to pursue them in e-mail, but I'm glad it is happening.

Andrius (and Ming and all), I don't think I'll spoil any secret if I say something of what's in Ming's writing. It's just slow mo! Just imagine a bike running across the fields: it leaves many small curves untouched. Ming just takes it slow and so his bike touches all those small curves. Which is interesting, considering it looks like he's at full speed all the time.
Of course, the same can be said of Andrius and of many others: they shine when they take their time.
So, really, it's no wonder picsie suggests we all take a day off from the internet! I think it would mean maybe 23 hours just to slow down, and then just 1 hour to do our own personal "just my 2 cents" thinking.
Of course, there's also the "concept" part (and the creativity part). Probably some people are better at inventing/discovering concepts (and at finding/creating alternatives), and I know we can train ourselves to become "better than ourselves". But it's using and developing that skill that takes time. I know a few cooks who wouldn't be surprised!
We all have 24 hours a day.

Wow, thanks for that gem of an analysis. I didn't think of it that way, but I like it. I just write the way I think, I suppose, with minimal editing, and without thinking much about it, ironically. But a little feedback is nice sometimes. To get to see things a little differently.
2 Feb 2011 @ 01:32 by taranga @220.127.116.11 : rare conversation
"Lots of people doing what they see needs doing, is probably a very threatening prospect for certain groups, certain people in power positions. So many old structures are based on quite the opposite. I.e. persuading large groups of people to accept the perspective and the needed tasks of a very small group at the top. "
This suddenly reminded me of a wise remark of a German van driver with whom i had hitched a ride to Munich some 40 years ago 'I'm not very happy about nuclear weapons but consider this; in the old days them up there would send you and me to kill each other while they enjoyed the high life and made money out of it but now they will suffer as much so they will think twice about it!
So even that awful ultimate horror of an invention has had a part to play in the social/psychological evolution of a more creative and just civilisation.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Jim and his work for a couple of decades now, and I have always been thrilled and amazed by his artistry. He has an amazing sense of panel coscoruntitn and use of black as a color. On top of that, Jim is a very friendly, cool, and unspoiled individual. Ya can’t ask for better!

I was thinking of you guys last night as we huddled in our basement watching the weather on the news. All our area (Ohio) got was baseball (yes, BASEBALL) sized hail and damaging winds. I am praying for your coinmmuty. So glad you and your home are fine.

All the tragedy for Pakistan is constantly on the worsen like relief offers and benefit fall far besides what is. More benefit is frantically needed for the potential for enormous fatalities should begin to loom.
