In a network, the best place to store knowledge is in other people.
In case you meet people and they are trying to discourage your efforts, your efforts in service to a future for humanity, seven generations to come (however size and nature of your individual, unique contribution) remember this:
Cards forming part of different Social Machines
Card sessions facilitating insight. Games, patterns of play and places, providing an interactive interface between human play and social machine designs, in service to knowledge creation.
Cards considered in light of questions, helping you reframe things.
Decks with around 400 cards, and large finite set pattern languages, facilitating both play and social computing, forming part of a different
A catalytic, clear, meaningful, generative, comprehensive, perspective-
shifting and profound perception into behavior and understanding.
Card Session: How To Play
In this example, I’m going through the Synkinaesthesia card, outlining its constituent parts.
Mind evolving, with our thoughts and felts turning increasingly proprioceptive, with phronesis guiding our performance, virtues turned paths, lines of emergent, unfolding, cultivating, extending and evolving participatory inquiry, with life and signs, co-extensive, inviting and co-arising: embracing, enacting and stewarding the dialogical nature of the pervasive thinking, feeling, gathering and enacting of being, in service to the immanent and regenerative co-agency of evolution.
The hypothesis is in the first two words:
As a text turned Card, this is me playing the Intelligence…
- John, what are you doing?
- Cards. I’m doing Cards.
- But all that stuff you’re sharing in Conversations that Mind and Matter, in facebook, what’s that all about?
- MMMMOSPG. I’m inviting others to a massively multiplayer, multi-parallell, multi-order cybernetics online signal processing game.
It’s like a MMORPG, but different.
What if understanding is our ability
to hold space for the possibility of
knowledge, as it emerges, unfolds,
directs and discloses its relevance to
unexplored aspects of things known?
In a network, the best way to see ourselves through
the Waste Land, is game^n together with others.
How To Play
In a network: Shu Ha Ri.
How are we for time? What comes next? Well, what do you think?
Is what we are currently doing working? Are we getting there?
Shu: How Nature Works
School of Hard Knocks, or, as Hobbes saw it: Nasty, Brutish and Short.
Like care and financial aid to plebs during the Covid-19 event.
“The major problems in the world are the result of the difference
between how nature works and the way people think.”
— Gregory Bateson

If you participate in a network, really participate, you will notice that there’s always too much stuff, too much going on.
This is the Pronoid Universe nudging you towards leveling up your synthesis game.
It’s a ride. Enjoy.
Select some choice alien artifacts, and what few trusted heuristics that might work, along your desire lines, attending to the odd roadside picnic.
How would you know you’ve done a necessary and sufficient amount of synthesis — is there a stopping rule?
The moment you sense your particular synthesis, what insights you’ve distilled, is annealing your essential character, not only your…

Cards considered in light of questions.
A gameful way to help you reframe things.
Flow = Structure x Process
It always begins in the middle of things. You thinking, how am I going to do this — and then, you invite magic by entertaining slow and instantaneous thoughts(the spontaneous precision of intuition) at the same time. Soon thereafter, an insight. Yes, jot it down, scribble at the margin ->

Reframing Things: Ecology and Society
Code, people, nature and understanding.
Nature, people, understanding and code, what combinations of all four can be seen and understood as homesteading operational context, and how generative sequences can help perform structure-preserving transformation, in a context of both contextual intelligence (emergent vectors) and conversational intelligence (flow and momentum).
The game engine underneath, how we operate the social machine, our tacit individual, small group genius and collective understanding, as a function of
Behavior, attention, will and intelligence.
