A blog for documents and studies on the development of

Human "Consciousness", to help and

promote the process of rational reflection.

The Highlight here will be, working towards the high objectives of harmony in the Ethiopian Social-Reality: PEACE, freedom of CULTURE, scientific PERFECTION and tolerant FAITH. Any knowledge, without the slightest touch of dogmatism; whose purpose is enlightening and freeing the human species to celebrate its full liberty and eventual perfection, is always welcome.

A Rationale and Guide for Nonviolence


".... life, from its beginning more than three billion years ago, did not take over the planet by combat but by networking."....Fritjof Capra /


Revolutions and wars are exceptions to the rule, coup d'etats are perversions of the rule....And the rule seems to be evolution embedded in creativity/emergence, whose existence becomes apparent in due time and space to initiate a fundamental change..... That is, I presume, the Kernel of human experience in history .
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sociocultural_evolution

What is the inter-relation between social structure and collective consciousness ?
What is the role of structure and collective consciousness in our future human development...?

Following is an aspect which I think is very relevant in our context and helpful for our community's political dead-lock:

***

Chapter Twenty-Two

A rationale and guide for nonviolence
as a basis for conscious evolutionary activism.

Hier reproduced in summary in accordance with the permission of the author:


In any situation or system, seek ways
to replace force with consciousness.
...
Force, in this context, refers to the use of coercion or
overwhelming strength or power to dominate, control, or otherwise
get one's way, often against resistance. The power used
can be physical, economic, social, intellectual, emotional, military,
psychological, technological, etc. The more force used,
the less we take into account the nature or needs of the Other.
The more we take the Other into account, the less force and
resources we need to accomplish mutual ends.
Consciousness, the capacity to be aware, in this context,
includes all the interior dimensions and capacities of life that
can—among other things—help us deal successfully with
our changing world by sensing, understanding and creatively,
collaboratively relating to the conditions in us and the entities,
interactions, and contexts around us.

This evolutionary moment challenges us to bring the power
of consciousness to bear on the process of self-reflective evolution
itself to replace the creative violence of supernovas, lifeand-
death struggles, and wars with highly aware intelligence,
wisdom, and care.

So as evolutionary activists, we seek to replace force everywhere,

in every entity (every individual, group and
system);
in every interaction (every conversation, exchange,
conflict, and engagement with nature);
in every context (every situation, culture, gathering,
community and urban design); and
in every form of consciousness (in all sensing,
learning, visioning, morality, and all other forms
of thinking, feeling and experience).
.....
...
Our consciousness then evolves
towards true collaboration, where we—
you and I, us and our adversaries,
humankind and nature—help each
other get what we each need and want—in cooperatives,
family conversations, in deliberative democracy, in Nonviolent
Communication, in permaculture.
...

This shift from force to consciousness is the fulcrum of
human evolution at this critical time—at individual, collective,
and systemic scales.
As we reach our planetary limits, the downsides of force,
violence, and control become increasingly obvious. Our
technological and social capacities to generate harm through
our efforts to force, impact, and control people and life—no
matter how well intended—threaten our extinction.
...
The more fully we understand, the less force or energy
we need or want to use. The less energy we use to serve any
given need, the more efficient and elegant our systems and
behaviors become, making them favored by natural selection
and the general directionality of evolution.
..
Guidance concerning evolutionary means:
..

A addresses the role of conversation.
B talks about creative use of diversity.
C explores how to handle dissonance.
• D discusses deep, inclusive simplicity.
...
..
Guidance concerning realms of evolutionary action:
...
..
• 1 deals with the health of the systems themselves.
• 2 deals with contexts and systemic awareness of them.
• 3 deals with the systemic capacity to effectively respond
to complex, changing circumstances.
...
1. Cultivate healthy self-organization.
..
• Cultivate healthy behavior
• Cultivate healthy power
• Cultivate healthy flow

2. Cultivate healthy systemic contexts.
..
• Healthy social context.
• Healthy contexts that govern meaning
• Healthy physical contexts
• Healthy natural contexts

3. Cultivate healthy systemic responsiveness and collective
evolvability.
..
• Cultivate collective intelligence, learning, and
memory -
• Cultivate collective self-awareness, integrity,
and humility -
• Cultivate the collective capacity to generate and
pursue shared intentions -
• Cultivate systems that embody collective compassion
and mutuality -
• Cultivate the collective ability to make wise,
creative decisions -
• Cultivate collective co-creativity and evolutionary
sensibilities -

A Flash of the Day (Archive)

1. Working on the big "GOOD SENSE": The sense of Beauty.
( via cf. "The Logic of Sense" /Deleuze) (9/2010)

2. በትርታ ይጀምራል፤ ትር ትር ይልና ይተርታል ወይንም ይተረታል ወይንም ተረት ይሆንና ይተረተራል፤ ተረት ይሆናል።(9/2010)

3. Degrading the other to "none-will" is inhuman and counter productive... The human point is to come to a common "Big-Will"(10/2010)

4. The "inner universe" (mystics) to the "outer universe" (physics) is allegorically related as the conscious mind to the virus in the human body. (6/10/2010)

5. Feeling is the language of the "inner Universe". Music/arts is the interface between the "inner" and "outer" universe.

6. Demoralization is a disgusting political tool -an expression of inhumanity employed in a social evolution, indicating the inhumanity of the employer! A disaster! (7/10/2010).

7. "In Girard's language, the law order is "mythical" and as such obeys the logic of the founding murder." (cf. Peter Robert Stork; 2005)

8. "Wenn sich zwei streiten, freut sich der Dritte"/
When two people quarrel, a third rejoices... This will be a legacy; and in the 21st century, "Wenn sich zwei einigen, freut sich der Dritte" may take over. /A mutual understanding of two people rejoices the third/.

9. My quotation of the Day (8.11.10):

Baldwin’s thought: ("The Baldwin effect")
“It is as inexorable as the colour of his eyes and the shape of his nose. He is born into a system of social relationships just as he is born into a certain quality of air. As he grows in body by breathing the one, so he grows in mind by absorbing the other.’ (Baldwin, 1906: 69-70)

10.
If "I AM" the observer (the conscious entity) so that the quanta of matter/mass (the wave function) would collapse to be a particle /the particle object), enhancing IT to the phase of THE Existing Reality.
Couldn't I -The Self- hope and help the spiritual energy/ my consciousness/ as well, to extend the transformed energy /After Life/to collapse into that existence of "THAT Beyond" Life (1). Life pertaining to "intelligent" energy (spiritual beings in the sphere of the Akashic Field), as the reflection of the "intelligent" matter or mass (human beings in the sphere of "thermodynamics" or gravity ). 17.11.10

*
(1) like J.Wheeler's Model of "the participating observer" in the Universe.

11. Forget Time! And mind Your Mind only (24.11.10).
I.e. "Talk about "time out of mind"!"(1)

12. Wikileaks in Amharic philo-play:

የዊቂ -ሊቅ ሰዋ ስው ...ባልታወቀ ነገር፤ሊቅ ፤ቂል ፤ ቅልቅል ፤ ቅል፤ ቀላል ቂል ወይስ ....በቃኝ ብሎ፤ ቅንጣት ቅብ -ብቅል ቀልቦ ፤ወደ ብቃት ሲቃ፤ ሲግዋዝ ይሁን ፤ ሲያንቀጠቅጥ ወይስ ተቀላቅሎ ሲያንቀለቅል።ያልታወቀ ነገር።
02.12.10

13. Gates and Centres:

Life , nature and actually the whole Universe know nothing about Top and Bottom or Up and Down. There are just centres in reality. Centres and Centres with all of them having their Gates, Gates leading to the Centres. What is wrong with mankind, always with the tick for tops and bottoms or ups and downs and not centres, but fixed to the gates, without the moral courage to move towards the centres -to build the symphony
- the symphony in the SPHERE.

The SPHERE:

- The SPHERE of IDEAS is THE WORD of the SOURCE. THE WORD - The PLAY where this ASHORE and that BEYOND of the HARMONY is eternally tuned to exist in the SYMPHONY of ALL, flowing and floating like in the "Ballet piece of Joseph Strauss " -the Dynamiden Waltz- with every being offering its harmonious "musical touch". (cf. The Harmony Model)

ሰው በምግብ ብቻ አይኖርም....ወሎ


14. መቃብር ላይ የሚፃፍ /+++ተጨማሪ!/


መቃብር ላይ የሚፃፍ (ከርፖርተር የተገኘ)


ጥብቅ ማሳሰቢያ ሸክላን ለምትሠሩ፤
እዚህ መቃብር ላይ አፈር አትዝገኑ፡፡
ሲነድ ሲቃጠል ሲጨስ በመኖሩ፣

ሲቃጠል ለሚኖር፣
ለጀበና መሥሪያ አይሆንም አፈሩ፡፡

+++
(አንድ ከሚመለከተው የተጨመረ!
ከመቃብር በፊት)

ሰው ለመስራት ብቻ ከፍቀደ አየሩ
ክህነት ካላችሁ አሰቡ መርምሩ
ተራ ከገባችሁ ዘክሩ አስዘክሩ
ያልሆነው እንዲሆን ምከሩ ሞክሩ
ሽቀጣና ሽቀት እንዳይሆን ሃገሩ
አንድ ቀን እንደሆን አይቀር መቃ-ብሩ።

Michelle Holliday's Humanity 4.0 

15. Human DIGNITY:

21st century is the era of Liberation Movements for Human Dignity, encompassing all other Movements, to make them superfluous – non-dogmatic, non-religious and non-ethnic with the great Common Collective Will for Human Empathy!

11 0220 11 - EGYPT's Dignity Day, the Landmark for a radical break with all Tyrannies!

Thanks to Tunisia -The Heroic Pioneer of Freedom!

እንደዚህ ሆነና ...እስኪሆን ይሆናል!
