Autopoiesis

The natural world and the built environment in syzygy render a marvelous path into the future if one uses powerful thinking and whole system design principles.
Resent connections with social media networking groups have sparked developments that bring OzoneFarm ideolgy further down to Earth. We’re finding that what was seen as outlandish back when we went online in 2001 are actually more down-to-earth than even we thought.

The core principle of abstraction synthesis for creating new work situations using networked computers relies first on universal common values. UCVs are values to plug into easy-to-use formulas and equations that do not need heavy math skills or computers at all.

The threat of a quantum computing overthrow of Humanity diminishes as basic math comes back into focus. The major distinction between society and community for us as communition engineers enables us to dump the obvious fraud of identity politics and corporate ploys and get back to work.

Stay tuned!

Retrospective Singularity

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/49/Jenny_Lind_New_York_Concert.jpg

OK.. looking back on it all, I have accepted the fact that the American public isn’t mature enough to choose wisely. I had the same feeling when they elected Ronald Reagan in 1980. The parallels are astounding.

I am not as disheartened as many of my fellow Bernie supporters, because I believe that the spirit of democracy will overcome the fault as the common people galvanize into a singular voice of dissent. The undeniable solidarity will shift the collective mind toward sane forms of human organization that far excel over fascism, racism and other foolishness being passed off as authoritative leadership.

The proof of the ineptitude of pampered, cavalier, presumptuous, callous, uninformed members of of the mob as ‘leaders’ will show up in the form of tragic losses and unbridled abuses of ‘power’ and ‘authority’ that are based purely in conjecture and prejudice. We shall see yet another shift toward common law or we will fall under Martial law.

The community will emerge as the source, store of value and means of reciprocity in a completely new paradigm of social capital with empathy relationships and true agency within the next system. With the P. T. Barnum of the 21st Century at the helm, we are sure to become a casino, circus or game show nation within which we can all become spectacularly deceived, if that is our personal, sovereign choice.

For the record, it wasn’t mine.

Meaning E

SYZYGY17 is a convergence of both people and their meanings. Identity has nothing to do with a card in my pocket or yours. It has to do with how I am known by you. Like John said:

I know you

you know me

one thing I can tell you is you’ve got to be free…

From ‘Come Together’ – Beatles

So come together in Carbondale, Makanda, Paducah or in the field out in front of the Army Base. E pluribus unim.

Citizenship, Watershed and Commonwealth

This needs another round.

Citizenship Papers: Essays – Wendell Berry – Google Books.

Everyone that knows Wendell understands why he doesn’t use computers. Although I don’t know him personally, my sister and brother-in-law do and I’m staying at their place across Kentucky from the Berry’s in Henry County over here in Ballard County. Debby and Toby, much like Tonya and Wendell are a bit shy when it comes to using the web but those who know me understand why I’m not.

What is it about the web that simply can’t be trusted? I don’t even think about it much any more but I know it’s still there. Like a stream, I just flow around it. The work I do these days, as in the past, involves online community and offline community and I am a living interface between those two parts of the ecosystem. I hope to represent my circles well – honestly…

Stop the Hollyweb! No DRM in HTML5.

In case you didn’t know by now, Hollywood is trying to take over the world-wide web, too. When will enough be enough?

DRM (Digital ‘Rights’ Management) – for most people, ‘rights’ are actually ‘restrictions’ whether they are aware of it or not. For those with little or no money for lawyers, expensive equipment and only limited Internet access, the built-in rights management proposed for the next version of HTML (HyperText Markup Language) will further break the Internet into ‘have and have-not’ sections. — learn more

Ripples of Influence

The Common Good is always there waiting for some attention. It seems that attention is at a premium these days with the bombardment of our psyches with the steady stream of nonsense coming from the commercially prostituted media that has driven sanity to the margins of daily life. Who are we to withhold ourselves from the task of restoring Common Sense to our lives?
 
OzoneFarm is here to assist in the process of realization of the ideal for our own slice of the “masses” which is fairly small according to our year-end stats. But our aim is more toward quality rather than quantity. The ideal that we look to is not of this current world. It comes from a future world that can only be imagined and scarcely even described. All we know for sure is that justice and love will be the dominant themes.
 
Building real community requires openness, honesty and oneness of both heart and mind. The confusing forces that plague civic life and the overall well-being planet-wide appear to have a common source – an inordinate desire for material gain on the part of an ever-thinner slice of Humanity. Our philosophy is based in the belief that Community is Capital. To us, wealth consists of physical well-being, spiritual liberation and collective cognition of Earth’s ecosystem. It has nothing to do with finance, commerce or even government.
 
The battle lines are drawn along physical boundaries using ideals that are functions of collective acceptance of a few principles that empower mainly those who have material advantage through the usurpation of civil authority. This condition creates wide-spread misery and despair and results in crime and misbehavior on every level. Every problem ranging from irreparable damage to the ecosystem to mass starvation of innocent children is solvable through a return of the uniquely Human faculty of critical thinking and problem-solving that has delivered us through two World Wars and into a third. This war, though, is one of mind and spirit..
 
In 2016, we hope to show what can be achieved through tightly-focused community development and cyber-active vocational rehabilitation of our systems and networks. We are ramping up our efforts to build brick-and-mortar instances of maker spaces, rebuild centers, B corporations, permaculture projects, local food networks and other down-to-earth efforts to change things at the local level. At the same time, we are working on forming a collectively-rendered prototype of a new system of accountability and communication based, not upon greed but upon the κοινωνία principle.
 

Metaphors for Traction

Roger on a tractor with a large smile.

Metaphoric extension

Creeping featuritus is one. Everyone loves a good metaphor from time to time. Adult play and child play are simply concurrent versions of each other. Young men like to play “Army” .. as do older ArmChairGenerals.

The freedom and liberty we take with words in print and speech may be about all we have left (I speak as an American fool) to work with. Deriving income from silly ideas and made-up nonsense has been done [Three Stooges]. Using rich media that’s also heavy in psychologically aware, yet naturally gentle linguistic patterns. A collective sensitivity should evolve out of the flow of ideas as they have been. Bringing that from the Ozone to the Farm is the process of traversing from the intangible through the visualizable into the developable where it becomes an Artifact of Value – A Good – if we succeed. — Wikipedia:Extensionism
