Örsan Şenalp I think there are several plenetary consciousness candidates competing at the moment so none of them are planetary yet :) one liberal version given by Rifkin's Global Collaborative Commons vision which is shared by Global Marhall plan document to a certain extent, other social economy/just transition vision around WEF, Club of Rome, Soros etc. networks, and then we have Michel and commons transition network's perspective. The Next System project brings variety of visions on one plane (so in this sense aiming what you asked above). If first the two vison are recletions from progressive and conservative managerial and capitalist class views, the latter is from Precariat class view. I feel a need to expansion of Michel's vision to global south thus to include industrial proletariat, whose numer has reached to at lesat 3 billon people. I had this slide updated around 2012-2013 to draw a reda map but I am not so sure about it today: https://www.slideshare.net/.../transnational-p2p...Manage

Mapping Our Way to the Next Civilization

Posted on October 15, 2015 by George Pór

This blog started as a reply to a post by a friend of mine on Facebook. Bret Warshawsky wrote:

“How about some love and co-creation? We’re beginning to map ‘Golden Innovations’ and need your help!

When you see a post or thread on FB, and share it, about ‘Projects already changing the system toward compassion, cooperation,sustainability and creativity.’ Please tag us with # noomaptheinnovations . We would really appreciate the support. The graphic in this screen grab is just a work in progress so more design to come.

Here’s my reply:

Bret, the interface is elegant and beautiful as always what you guys do. But that’s the easier part. The trickier is to design the pattern language for organizing the collected data and a smart information architecture that doesn’t only prevent the users from getting overloaded by the sheer volume and complexity of everything recorded, but also help them creating new hyper-trails of meaning. It’s something like that what I’m aiming for in a collaboration initiated by Christina Bowen, focused on “creating a map of org-structure, practices, and theory to show/ learn impacts on individual behavior and expression of collective intelligence,” which you can find in the #org-ecology channel of ResponsiveOrg on Slack .

Ours is only one of the MANY similar mapping efforts. The very fact that there’s a growing number of such efforts is a sign of our times, of discovering the urgency of what Barbara Marx Hubbard wrote:

 “The awakening of our species and our search for solutions is occurring, but it’s scattered, and it’s certainly not in dominion anywhere. The larger social structures are proving to be inadequate to solve the problems they’re creating. New social innovations are emerging everywhere, but they are not sufficiently connected or empowered. So right now, any effort that we can make to connect and create greater synergy and participation in this awakening process is probably the most important thing we can do.”

I don’t remember when she wrote that but I quoted it first 10 years ago here, and at numerous occasion since then, because it talks about a vital condition for  our planetary evolution needs to carry itself forward.

In the ecosystem of global mapping efforts of transformational initiatives there are different species with different gifts to the whole. The one where I’m focusing my attention is not trying to catch everything that moves towards more compassion, cooperation, sustainability and creativity. There are zillions of such projects and previous mapping efforts that tried to portray them imploded under the very weight of the overwhelming richness and diversity of the landscape.

So my intention is to map a much smaller swath of the whole, only the initiatives aiming at reinventing organizations for supporting the well-being and evolution of all of their members and other stakeholders. Such initiatives are numbered “only” by the thousands which I find a more manageable number. 🙂

The infographic below is a first sketch for the landing face of such a map:

I wrote a bit more about the map above in the editorial of the September issue of Enlivening Edge.

Another mapping initiative worth paying attention to is the one of the Global Solutions Network:

Screen Shot 2015-10-15 at 12.03.56

The 4 characteristics of a GSN are: addresses a global problem; engages diverse stakeholders; exploits the digital revolution; and self-organizes and self-governs. GSN’s core ideas is that “enabled by the digital revolution, multi-stakeholder, self-governing networks are transforming how we solve global problems.The 10 types of networks pictured above are linked with issue-based hubs that span climate and planet stewardship, health and human security, employment and prosperity, and cities. On each hub expert curators invite nominations of successful GSNs to help grow a comprehensive network of GSN networks.

GSN claims to be the definitive resource of expert insights, cases and field tools for global problem solvers. Its funders are large institutions and to get listed you have to be proven successful at a global scale. Very different logic from how the bottom-up, grassroots networks organize themselves. It’s not better or worse than the latter ones, just addressing different audiences. If you’re a forward-thinking policy maker, go to and engage with GSN.

If you’re a movement catalyst, organizational change maker, or connector of people networks, and  want to increase your effectiveness by connecting  with the tip of the evolutionary wave,  then go to and immerse yourself with the Reinventing Organizations wiki and the community surrounding it.  In that case, you may also want to pay attention to such new type self-managing and self-governing organizations as Enspiral, Metamaps, Sensorica, EdgeRyders and their brethren.

Technical folks from those groups are gathering, as we speak,  and “scheming about what the fundamental technical aspects would be needed to enable a vastly more interoperable capability to our various web platforms.” Whether they will succeed or not is almost less important than the fact they have engaged in co-creative relationships for growing something that can “act more so as an ecosystem of tools, than siloed off platforms” (Connor Turland).

One of the questions that hold my attention, as I’m looking at their work, is  what can the various projects of mapping “next-stage” organizational innovation learn from them? Can it be that facing challenges more complex than any group can successfully deal with inspires the recognition that when we meet things that are too complex to deal with, we need to ask for help from a larger collective intelligence? At some point in the development of our separate  mapping projects we may recognize that there is no one method of mapping can do justice to the vastness of the tectonic shift between the dying old civilization and the emerging new.

At that point we’ll start turning towards each other, seeking interoperability. The sooner we reach that point the easier will be to have the maps talk with each other. Only then will their users, the  people, communities, and organizations who need them, will have a more triple-E (more effective, efficient, and enjoyable) experience of navigating with them our turbulent, Emerging Planetary Reality. 

Another important mapping effort was led by Rhonda Fabian and commissioned by Kosmos Journal:

Connecting for Change: Insights from an Emerging Global Transformation Movement

Based on research by the author, in collaboration with Jennifer Horner, PhD

Screen Shot 2015-10-18 at 12.50.04

“You might say it is the dark night of the planetary soul. Here we are in the midst of an ecological nightmare some are calling irreversible. The weight of war and human suffering seem overwhelming. We are bombarded with distress signals, but lulled by a media and political system that pushes distraction and more spending. Is it any wonder we try to evade our despair, that we close our eyes?

Yet at the same time, many people are waking up. They share a persistent inner sense that even the darkest night must be followed by a new day. Nearly every spiritual tradition says it is so and prophesizes a great planetary era still ahead and, though particulars differ, each asks for our faith that a better world is possible, predicated on peace and sharing. Science advances a similar, more immediate message: it’s now or never and cooperation is the key.

The Shift, Great Turning, and New Story are words used to describe what many are experiencing as a growing movement or awareness worldwide of the need to examine and restructure political, economic, and social systems to align more closely with the needs of humanity and the Earth.”

Kosmos Journal’s  “Connecting for Change” study was one of the most substantive contributions to the field that I call “evolutionary cartography” that is focused on mapping the tip of the evolutionary wave of today’s epic transformations. Hopefully, the next phase of the study will receive the funding necessary to do justice to the complex tasks of mapping the fast-moving tip of the evolutionary transformations sweeping the world.

To be even more useful than Phase I was, Phase II of the study would need to organize and store its information, using a collaboratively developed “transformational movements” pattern language, maybe in a relational database at the back-end, and an engaging “advanced visual language”-based user interface as a publicly accessible front-end.

Coupled with social technologies (such as the U process, World Cafe, Appreciative Inquiry, etc.) baked in the software, Connecting for Change could become a fully self-organizing knowledge base and more — an engine of transformation, by connecting our conversations in the ecosystem, which i wrote about in Kosmos:

http://www.kosmosjournal.org/article/connecting-our-conversations-becoming-wiser-together/

If what we aim at is to discover the generative patterns that connect the various movements and initiatives for change, then we need to create interactive, self-organizing maps with functions that I sketched out in a 2010 blog on A tool for mapping the future as it’s emerging in the present and What functions will élan map perform.  5 years ago, those thoughts were a decade ahead of their time. Let’s shorten the remaining 5 years. 🙂

But it’s not only about software and information architecture, and maybe not even about them at the first place. Rhonda wrote earlier this year, “We are coming closer as a species to a new form of mental connection. It is possible to mentor, support, hold one another very deeply.” I replied:  And it’s not only mental. For our species to awaken to its collective sentience, the global brain needs to be coupled with a global heart. That’s the focus of the paper that I am working on presently, “From Shared Mindfulness to Collective Intelligence to Collective Sentience.”

Since then, that paper was published and you can read it here. It’s not hardcore futurism because the unscaled version of “collective sentience” is already present. Is is in caring for each other and this planet. Whatever mapping of the forces that work for a better world we develop, it should not be just an intellectual exercise. It needs to be guided by a desire to support all those to find a path to the future, who know that there must be an alternative to the status quo, and need to discover that not only they are not alone, but there’s a plethora of paths…


Lynn Lamoreux

So my challenge to you is to find out "what is theproblem" which should be easy because every generation has done this for about 200 years, and then find a way to get the word across all the generations and all the excuses. The latter part of that challenge is the more important. I can think of a few organizations 350.org, PostCarbon Institute, and there are quite a few small groups of people taking personal actions not public, that have carried over more generations. But most of everyone else has heard it all before and they aren't interested.

So go out and fix it !!) 6 hrs · Edited

Resources, Networking and Partnerships

While the First Noosphere World Forum will provide the meeting place for creating the dialogue of the virtual noosphere, a key component of this activity is the creation of the Noosphere Network – links to all noosphere related web sites (see Resources page)– as well as the forming of partnerships with like-minded organizations (forthcoming page). In the interest of creating the most comprehensive and universal Noosphere Network, we welcome new links to be placed.

The First Noosphere World Forum is an activity of the Galactic Research Institute of the Foundation for the Law of Time. While promoting the 13 Moon/28-day calendar and education about the Law of Time defines the mission of the Foundation, the underlying program of the FLT and the GRI is to pace and further the process of the biosphere-noosphere transition. To this end, under the auspices of the GRI-FLT, the Forum has established alliances or partnerships with: The Club of Budapest and WorldShift 2012, ISRICA (Institute for the Scientific Research and Investigation of Cosmic Anthropoecology), and the Noosphere Spiritual Ecological World Assembly (NSEWA).

We invite further partnersships – defined as groups or organizations that wish to be in a genuine creative collaboration with the Forum and its sponsoring organization, the GRI-FLT. Eventually what we would like to see with all of the partner membership organizations is an Alliance for the Noosphere .

If your organization would like to be a partner, contact us: http://www.facebook.com/noosphere

In 1996, he supervised the building of Sacred Mountain Sanctuary (SMS), a resort/retreat in east Bali with cottages and villas made from bamboo, grass and stone. He joined with Linda Garland and the Environmental Bamboo Foundation (EBF) to develop The Vertical Soak Bamboo Treatment Process. From 2000 - present, Emerald assisted the Royal Family of Karangasem in restoring the Tirtagangga Water Palace, as liaison between the Arimathea Foundation and the Karangasem family's Yayasan Amerta Jiwa. Emerald continues to be active in education and raising awareness for the health of our planet.
Emerald Starr Anna Hill. Artist /Space Entrepreneur, Founder and owner of Spase Synapse studied (BA) Fine Art Sculpture at St Martins School of Art London followed by the Royal College of Art London (MA Fine Art Sculpture). She is inspired by humankind's consistent curiosity that strives to explore and adapt to new territories using creative and evolutionary tools. From space, life is viewed systemically both on macro and micro scales. On a macro scale, Earth is viewed from space as a beautiful and connected living system embodying connectivity between people and the planet. On a micro level, space gives insight into living systems for example through the systems science of space engineering that is able to sustain human life in extreme conditions.

Anna has developed the Symbiotic Sphere, a device intended to allude to both micro and macro space and time. It contains a Venus time watch where a day lasts more than Earth's year, juxtaposing Earth-centric and cosmological time scales and biorhythms. The Symbiotic Sphere embodies our changing perception of ourselves, the planet Earth and the Universe we inhabit, through the advances of both culture and science. (www.spacesynapse.com)
