Raising the curtain

I need to explain what I am doing. I am raising the curtain on the idea of creating a theatre for a new world and stepping onto the stage as a writer, director, and performer. I am joining others who are contributing to creating a new world in our theatre. Our theatre of the new world is the internet.

Here I am. I am imagining possibilities. I am contributing. I am contextualizing. I am creating connections with what I see and think and feel about how things are, how things could be, and how we are, with what I think we can do to create a new world to better possibilities for the future of our world. I am imagining and creating a story of an enterprise. A creative hypothesis.

A scientific hypothesis is an idea about how things are that we set out to demonstrate. A creative hypothesis is an idea about how things could be that we set out to create.

I am setting out to create the hypothesis that we can create our community around our common interest in creating a future for our world

I am telling the story of my creative journey and the story I am imagining and creating with my ideas like a pointillist. How I see the world. How I imagine the world could be. What I think we can do. The dots that contributed to my creative journey and the dots I see that could contribute to our creative journey, to creating our story, to creating a new world, and to creating our future.

Steven Jobs said we can see how the dots connected when we look to the past but we can not see how the dots are going to connect in the future. To which I add, but we can connect the dots we can see. I am connecting the dots I see.

We can create a story with our ideas, – the ideas we have learned from our experience about how things are , – our science of probabilities, – a critical exploration, – and the ideas we have about how things could be and what we could do, – our art of possibilities, a creative exploration, – to create community around the idea of creating a new world to create a better future for our world, – a creative hypothesis, – with ideas about what we can do and exploring opportunities for creative community enterprise.

I am imagining and creating this story in our theatre of the new world. This is an evolving story about how we can create our community around creating a better future for our community. A story about community which could become a story created by our community.

The conversation is open.

I hold the world but as the world
A stage where every man must play a part.
from The Merchant of Venice
William Shakespeare
