Our overarching common interest

Our overarching common interest as a creative community is to increase our knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of our world as individuals, as communities, and as a community, and to leverage the contribution of our learning resources and our knowledge, – what we know about our world, what we know about ourselves, what works in our common interests, what interests we have in common, – and learn how to explore our experience, our nature, and our relationships for the best obtainable version of how things are, how things work, what is happening, where we are in our creative journey and in our creative evolution, and what we can do.

Sustained inquiry is essential. What is important? What is relevant? What do we know? What don’t we know? What do we need to know? What could we benefit from knowing? What do we want to know more about? What do we think things mean?

Organizing complexity and learning how to organize complexity contributes to our ability to explore connections, to explore relationships, to explore possibilities, to explore for ideas about how things are and how things could be, to explore ideas about what we can do, and to create connections to excite interest around opportunities for creative community enterprise.

This is our overarching interest from my point of view. This is where we want to focus our creative energy, our creative resources, and our creative enterprise. This is how we improve everyone’s ability to increase their contribution to our common human interests in creating a future for ourselves, for our community, and for our world.
