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.
Quantum Ideas is a creative hypothesis that we can create common enterprise around our common human interests, – interests we have in common as individuals, as communities, and as a community.
We can use ideas we have in common about how things are, ideas we agree make common sense, and ideas we have in common about what we can do, ideas we agree make good sense, to create the possibilities we imagine in our creative hypothesis. Ideas we have in common we agree upon as a creative community are quantum ideas.
Our common interest
Our common interest as a community is to accelerate our creative and cultural evolution and accelerate our ability to create community around our common human interests.
Our creative community enterprise is creating connections and community with ideas which contribute to our creative and cultural evolution as a community.
We create connections with ideas, with stories, with art. We create community with the stories, ideas, experiences, and enterprises we have in common.
We create connections, relationships and explore ideas and opportunities for creative enterprise around common interests with creative conversation. We create community around ideas and opportunities for creative community enterprise which contribute to interests we have in common and to our common human interests. Quantum Ideas is a creative community enterprise exploring and learning the art of imagining and creating possibilities.
The art of possibilities
Quantum physics is known as the science of probabilities. Quantum Ideas is the art of possibilities, – the art of creating possibilities.
The idea for Quantum Ideas and the imagination of how we could create possibilities as a community began to appear in 1995. Quantumideas.com went live in 2000 as we entered the new millennium with a visual that captured my imagination about an expanding universe of ideas and possibilities to explore, connect, and create.
Making the Case
Ten years ago today I introduced the idea of creating Vancouver Community Forums as a community project, inviting the Downtown Vancouver Association, the Vancouver Foundation, Tourism Vancouver, the Vancouver Board of trade, and representatives from the arts, urban design, architecture, development and social services communities to the conversation. I introduced the idea as a leadership initiative of the Downtown Vancouver Association to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary if this historic contributor to the evolution of our community.
