A new groove

In my memory of the future, I saw the field of collective intelligence and wisdom as a morphogenetic field, in which new grooves are etched by pioneering initiatives. The success of ours created a new groove for the benefit of explorers in subsequent generations: the passionate ones who dedicated their expedition to circle into center of the arts and sciences of CI&W, as well as, those who “only” wanted to increase the evolutionary fitness of their communities, by becoming better CI&W practitioners.

What my dreaming revealed

My envisioning shows (again) a direct link between our gathering now and the Evolutionary Salon and probably
other meetings in Jan. in Seattle. After that time/space frame I see an outburst of energy; almost something like a Big Bang. My inner image of linear time seems to vanish at that point.

Our meeting now and the meeting in Devon within a few weeks seems like preparation, exercises for Jan. and beyond. My wildest dream is that, whatever will happen in Jan. and whatever event we are going to organise, consciousness and awareness will be growing that collective intelligence, collective wisdom and collective consciousness will end up in collective leadership. And probably we are the ones to hold that vision and to be an example, a prototype of that.

In more feminine language I named collective leadership "the CircleBeing". (If you follow the link and have limited time, see the diagram p.17; and/or read p.4-9 and p.12-16.) In my wildest dream it cannot be else than that our CI-CW-CC ends in collectives of people, CircleBeings, who take on tasks, responsibilities as one entity.

Nectar emerged from my dream-juicer!!

Report on my Birthday, 2009

At our August 2006 conference we were unable to accommodate the hundreds of people who wanted to attend (far beyond our expectations; we'd only planned for 200) (like happened to NCDD at their first conference in 2002). But thanks to the brilliant networking, organizing, and online collaboration tools, everyone -- attendees and not -- were eager to help it happen, to help the next one happen, and to participate in the many working groups, dialogues, and projects that arose out of and in association with it -- including many functions that helped the field start exercising its own self-enhancing, self-evolving, self-organizing collective intelligence. The next year's conference had 1789 attendees. By 2008 the field had definitely become a conscious field and was being written about in major media and novels. By Spring semester 2009, there were 23 universities offering majors in collective intelligence (and the related major of integrated human systems). Today, on April 8, 2009, Google is listing 16,983,126,000 pages on "collective intelligence". In English.

Our organizing method was so inspired and brilliant (ahem, amen) that by 2007 we had all retired to a remarkable retreat center in Hawaii where we meditated, ate pineapples, and read the flurry of emails, journals, novels and websites marking the explosive development of this field. Every now and then we'd write a well-received article, or pat each other on the back. But the Old Man was right proud of us, as he had said 2500 years ago: "When the leader leads well, the people say 'We did it ourselves.'"

We spend a lot of time watching the sunrise -- literally and figuratively. There's now no question that "the world will make it."

Our wildest and juiciest dreams related to our Work together

Hello dear friends,

This is an invitation from my heart to the heart of all of us.
Let's join each other in presencing the future that we want to co-create, in two steps:

1. Enter in individual contemplation of the following question, each of us using her/his preferred way to gather essential information from the Field via deep intuition.

What is my wildest and juiciest dream that can come alive by our calling the CI conference into being, and our process of co-creating it?

2. Post what we become aware of during that contemplation, with an evocative title, and associate the entry with the Wildest Drems category.

Ria and I will do the same before going to sleep Thursday night (Central European time). If you read this message in time, and accept my invitation, then please do the same before Thursday 4m (PST). By the time you guys wake up, our dreams will be online but please read it only after posting yours.
