2012: Moving Toward Evolution By Choice Not Chance | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

Evolution raises consciousness and freedom through more complex order. According to Teilhard de Chardin, the great philosopher, the “noosphere,” the mind sphere or the thinking layer of Earth, with all our Internet and global intelligence, is about “to get its collective eyes.” We are about to connect center with center and heart with heart.

Riel Miller's keynote at CDKN Action Lab

Futurist Riel Miller presents one of the keynotes with the title: "Climate Change, Embracing Complexity, and Change in the Conditions of Change." Oxford April 2011. 

 

# I have worked with him on global change projects. He has very interesting view points about the presence from the view point of the future, moving from anticipatory models beyond extrapolation towards the capacity to reframe assumptions  underyling our concepts of society, economy, or change:  Futures literacy.

How Shift Happens http://www.connerpartners.com/frameworks-and-processes/how-to-make-shift-happen

How Shift Happens http://www.connerpartners.com/frameworks-and-processes/how-to-make-shift-happen | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

“Paradigm shift.” How many times have you heard that term thrown around?

 

We use “paradigm shift” to refer to initiatives that are big disruptions but that don’t meet the criteria Kuhn stated. The vast majority of organizational change announcements that claim or imply a paradigm shift are actually dressed-up extensions of what is already taking place. Significant modifications to the status quo are important, but they aren’t paradigm shifts.

The Many Dimensions of Change | Spiral Dynamics Integral (SDi) | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

Don Edward Beck:    All human groupings appear to be on the move, but towards different futures. The deep tectonic plates of human existence are shifting beneath the surface.

 So, here is “change” in eight different dimensions or variations. Perhaps you can add others. The first five function within the current set of givens, called Change of the First Order. The second three operate within a new set of givens, thus Change of the Second Order. We often call it deep change, profound change, or even radical change to signify this category. New wine demands new wineskins.

The Radical Technology of Christopher Alexander - Metropolis Magazine

The Radical Technology of Christopher Alexander - Metropolis Magazine | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

Chances are, you have heard of Christopher Alexander because of his most famous book on architecture, A Pattern Language. 

 

Alexander, the mathematician, was always concerned with the processes by which parts transform into wholes. He wants to know how we are implementing this part-whole synthesis; how nature does it; and especially, where we, in our own human version, might be getting it wrong. This is the key to an important realization about natural systems and how they generate form — one that, as Alexander has long noted, is distinct from how we humans typically generate form. And this is not a mere philosophical matter of humans being different from nature, or “having culture.” It’s a question of how we humans can also have a technology that is actually more complex, resilient, and sustainable — quite literally, more life-like.

Boldly creating a world that works for all - Trimtabs for systemic change

Boldly creating a world that works for all - Trimtabs for systemic change | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

 In the lecture I proposed ‘Trimtabs for systemic change’ as a strategy for creating a world that works for all. I introduced this as a strategy complementary to the conventional way of handling contemporary issues, where we strive to understand and control specific problems such as the climate change.

Feelings of disconnection from the planet and its problems are preventing people from investing in change
Anne Caspari's insight:

right questions, not quite getting the answers together yet. What if the solution was not only in evolving world views, but at the same time in involutionary processes to solve deep rooted (different "direction"; all the way down) issues in our relationship to nature...?

Kim Davis's comment, March 13, 2013 2:42 AM
Sustainability: the concept self-aware species invent as they eventually realize individualistic short-term aims of their members conflict with collective organizational long-term aspirations, once key resources get exhausted and their costs, as well as waste, rise above tipping points.

This is a normal stage of consciousness training in all species throughout the multiverse, as consciousness evolves from pre-conscious single organism to post-conscious multi-organism. The feedback mechanism is designed in such a way that as the challenge rises from deviations that are the fruit of individual egoism, the negative outcomes these deviations create act as forces to curb self-absorption, thus creating an awareness space in which solutions stemming from a collaborative system respectful of the web of life (including of its self-aware members) can eventually flourish.

Thus has a higher-level consciousness the ability to collectively form from - and beyond - its individualistic roots.

It's not CHANGE..... | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

 That “change makes us uncomfortable” is now one of the most widely promoted, widely accepted, and underconsidered half-truths around…. [I]t is not change by itself that makes us uncomfortable; it is not even change that involves taking on something very difficult. Rather, it is change that leaves us feeling defenseless before the dangers we “know” to be present that causes us anxiety. (from Immunity to Change -Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey)

Immunity To Change - Why Is Personal Change So Difficult?

Immunity To Change - Why Is Personal Change So Difficult? Adaptive rather than technical challenges

The inherent assumption in most training and work-related attempts at encouraging personal change is that it is skills based, in other words people can be taught to change. They can be taught, but generally they won't change. They can't change and according to Kegan this is because of their inbuilt and invisible immunity to change.

 

# my take: I have been working with the Kegan approach to overcome immunities to change and resistances on both individual and collective transformation processes. This is a great tool; the book makes it accessible for corporate minds. Well worth reading. Also see the review of my colleague Jonathan Reams:http://integral-review.org/documents/Reams,%20Immunity%20to%20Change%20Vol.%205%20No.%201.pdf AC
