why leap

in believing that equity is everyone getting a go every day.. redefining public education becomes revolution of everyday life.. aka: global equity

and in believing in that equity.. brought about believing in a means for 7 bn people to ..

..  l e a p


for humanity’s sake.. costello screen/service law (basically: unethical to keep saying we’re sick if no mech offering an alternative/healing) ..begs a leap .. via a mech simple enough for 7 bn to use/access today

for urgency’s sake.. graeber model law (basically: can’t train/logic ourselves into another way.. have to model/do/be it) ..begs a leap .. in an system open enough to set/keep 7 bn people free today

for sustainability’s sake..siemens glue law (basically: need something to tie us all together to our sync) .. begs a leap .. via a problem deep enough to resonate with 7 bn people today

and perhaps most of all..

today we have the means ..to facilitate the chaos/detox of 7 bn free/alive people.. tech as it could be.. ie: hlb via 2 convos that io dance.. as the day..[aka: not part\ial.. for (blank)’s sake…] .. a nother way


perhaps we haven’t yet seen/believed in the natural order of things (ie: stigmergy ness) because nature assumes inclusion.

and we haven’t yet let go of our non-inclusivenss. enough. to see how we can dance.

all of us. together.

I’m generally a change-the-incentives/model/system type person but this is interesting too…. (via ⁦@lolarobot⁩) https://t.co/Uw0DbYrdAq(http://twitter.com/heif/status/1039849372031377408?s=17)

1/ Let’s unpack Keith’s Law: In a complex system, the cumulative effect of a large number of small optimizations is externally indistinguishable from a radical leap. t. – @keithmadams

ginorm small

i’m ok w that.. imagining a large number of people (has to be all of us) optimizing the leap..an everyday reset

32/ Architect Indy Johar suggested what might be called the “resonance” view: getting the parts of the complex system to harmonize through loose mutual awareness. This is a probabilistic view.

betting on the sync

33/ A system with such resonance is ripe for Keith’s Law to operate. It creates a system-level harmonies in the environment that can shape positive spillover and surplus effects.

ie: eudaimoniative surplus

35/ This is not a one-shot thing. You have to keep finding new herding knobs as old ones lose potency and new ones become available due to ongoing growth..t

or rather.. design it so that 7bn people are doing a reset.. everyday

44/ This is why you don’t need specific roles or titles to turn Keith’s Law to your advantage. There are usually good herding knobs at every locus of authority..t

esp if we just trust 7bn people’s daily cure ios city

everyone in sync law

The time it takes for change to occur can be quick, and the time it takes for the condions of change to ripen & become ready is a variable. It’s X + 1 minute. You just never know where you are in the time line of X. Sometimes it’s closer than you think. #complexity #SystemChange


seth on opp to leap

to (virus) leap.. et al


why leaping is legit

Complex systems:
Change happens “gradually then suddenly.”
The time needed is X + one minute.


1\ undisturbed ecosystem (common\ing) can happen

2\ if we create a way to ground the chaos of 8b free people


humanity needs a leap.. to get back/to simultaneous spontaneity .. simultaneous fittingness.. everyone in sync..

in undisturbed ecosystems ..the average individual, species, or population, left to its own devices, behaves in ways that serve and stabilize the whole..’ –Dana Meadows


Whether it will ever be recognizable by anyone else I don’t know, but I feel that great new things are happening very quietly inside of me. And I know these things have a way, like the maple tree, of finally bursting out in some form.”
