I set out twenty-five years ago to create a communication system for native peoples to tell their stories, and contribute their ideas and understanding, and how they see, think, and feel about their experience of the world, and what they do, and how they are, and why they are, and where they are in their evolution as cultures, and what they are doing now, cultures to benefit our common interest in increasing our knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of our world.
I am going from my idea and intention at that time to exploring how we create community around our common human interests in creating a better future for our world, and what contributes to and militates against our ability to create community, and how we create our community and create a new world where everyone can create a place for themselves and play a part in contributing to creating a world that works for everyone, however, wherever, and whoever we are.
I began this story with my observation on the power to learn. We increase our power by learning. Increasing our knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of our world increases our power. Increasing our ability to observe demonstrated evidence of how things work, and what works, and what doesn’t work increases our power. Increasing our ability to create connections with our experience of our world, with ourselves, and with others increases our power. Increasing our ability to create connections with our experience of our world, with ourselves, and with others in the context of our interests increases our power. Increasing our ability to create connections with our experience of our world, with ourselves, and with others in the context of our common interests increases our power.
What is our interest in learning? What do we want to learn about? What do we want to learn to do? What do we care about? What would we like to create? What would we like to contribute to creating? What do we want to do? Do we want to learn for our own interests? Do we want to learn to contribute to interests we have in common with others? Do we want to learn how to create relationships? Do we want to learn to increase our contribution to our community?
I gave a talk to aboriginal youth gathered from across British Columbia at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre for a careers fair called Blueprint for the Future. The name of the event prompted me to talk about what I thought was important to learn for anyone setting out to create a future for themselves.
Our blueprint for the future and the future of our world lies in our ability to learn how to create community around our common human interests, as individuals, as communities, and as a community, and to learn the art of creative community enterprise around ideas which contribute to our overarching creative interests, – the possibilities we imagine we can create.
My new beginning to simply to contribute what I have learned from my experience, the closest possible version of the truth, of the realities of how things are, and how things work, and what works, as I see things from a systems engineering point of view. These are the realities which influence my response to my experiences, the experiences I want to create for myself, and how I choose to create with my experience.
I am going to do this by telling you what I am doing as I explore and learn what contributes to and what militates against our ability to create community. It is the creative hypothesis I am exploring. An idea about what could be I am setting out to create.
I am going to take you on a journey with the connections I am creating as I create the story and the enterprise. You are welcome to come with me or wander around yourself. If you have any ideas about what you can do or want to do, feel free to create a place for yourself. If you want to be involved create a connection with any opportunities you would like to pursue. If you want to participate in conversations in a creative community enterprise, – if you want to be a creative contributor to other conversations, – if you want to become a creative community partner and contribute to creating the community and the community enterprise, – we can talk.
The stage, the stories and the action in play in the theatre will become the property of the community, held in trust by the Quantum World Foundation when the foundation community is in place leading the enterprise in the interests of the community and we are confident we have the ability, the resources, and the culture we need to succeed as a creative community enterprise.
This is the structure of the community I am imagining. This is our responsibility to one another.
I am rebuilding and reimagining the stage from when it was wiped out in May 2019. I am exploring for opportunities to create connections and creating connections when I see an opportunity. I am telling you where I am going. When you see where I am going, get out in front of me.
Theatre is action The theatre comes when the players step onto the stage.
This is a conversation I am having as I move forward telling my story and creating the story I am imagining we can create as I explore what we can do as creative communities caring about creating a better future for our community. It is a monologue. I don’t expect anything to happen
