Card Sessions: Analogy

Flow is how you know.

Boundary objects are all those temporary constellations on and around the table, conducive to co-construction and production between individual ingenuity and small group genius.

Corner of Boundary Objects & Insights
Boundary objects are to functional interactions what ideas are to individual ingenuity and what insights are to taking thought.

Reacting to (social) media is to attention, what understanding social machines and online functional interactions (In A Network …) is to situational awareness.

In a network, we bring ourselves to the table, adding our own cards to what other players and cards are already there. Or, remain mostly audience.

cards are already there.

There’s no outside to networks. In a network, there’s no such thing as remaining non-participating. You are either in the network, participating, or not part of the network at all. The moment you notice a network, you are already part of it.

- How would we know?

- Flow. Flow is how we know.

The difference making all the difference

- How would we know what we are doing is different enough?

- Reviewing your return on engagement.

Engagement and Return on Engagement
The generative review of engagement (will turned flow) is noticing how it evolves with your perception, social cognition, learning, interaction and enaction.

Attention is to situational awareness, what will is to flow.

“Identification of rhythm as the causal counterpart of life; wherever there is some life, only perceptible to us when the analogies are sufficiently close.”
Alfred North Whitehead

Understanding how life and signs correspond to rhythm evolves with our attention turned situational awareness. Attention is to situational awareness what will is to flow and what circles of concern are to circles of influence.

Taking Thought: Circles of Concern, Influence and Confluence
As individuals, we take thought, always and already immersed in action, and, as part of larger systems, we form part of how civilization advances by extending the number of important operations which we can perform without thinking about them.

Patterns, weaving between finite and infinite
Our taking thought can be aligned with play and/or play^n. Patterns of play tend to finite games, while patterns of play^n tend to weaving between finite and infinite games.

Leveling up from Game to Game^n: Shu Ha Ri
Shu Ha Ri of Functional Operations Management.

Shu: School of Hard Knocks
Being confused about boundary management by remaining too attached to fixed, rigid boundaries. Personal ken options as symptoms of relative amount of denial (inference ladder shortcuts) and confusion (misalignment of map and territory).

Ha: Life as if by design, a grasp beyond reach
Adapting to the ideas related to dynamic boundary management, with intelligence turned ability, managing what boundaries makes sense.

Ri: Mastery
Enkinaesthesia is to field, what synkinaesthesia is to vector and what learning into aliveness is to flow and semiosphere slingshots in a context of enkinaesthesia as umwelten and synkinaesthesia as evolutionary agency.

tl:dr
Analogy in a context of autopoiesis and anticipatory assumptions in service to evolutionary agency.
