What could become possible if we had interactive concept maps of the forces that are shaping our world, including all shades of the evolutionary movements, transformational technologies, and their inter-relatedness? I have been holding that question and earlier variations of it for two decades, as central to working for a better world guided by conscious evolution.
The night of our knowledge cafés and my workshop during the Learning Day of the European Commission, Toke and I stayed in Helen's house in Brussels. In the morning I had a chance to invite him to see with me into that "What could become possible" question and sharpen it if possible.
As I was talking about why that question has so profound meaning to me, and why it is so essential to large-scale evolutionary breakthroughs, I started doodling.
This was one of those times when I really wished we had a recording device handy but we didn't. So, what you see below is only an outline of the key ideas from our rich conversation about the Art of Hosting conscious evolution, using the sketch on the left as my memory aid.
1. The "what will become possible" will be clearer if we engaged the "how to map the unmappable" question, the path to which starts with one or two individuals who hold a lived, next-level pattern that they are passionate to host.
2. Then we need to form a hosting team and invite the practitioners of the various disciplines, as key stakeholders in mapping the unmappable, to help drawing the picture in which most dots connect. The "connecting the dots" expression refers to, in this context, the areas of where the separately originated, upward moving and expanding vortices touch and interpenetrate. Each vortex represents one of the evolutionary disciplines and its community of practitioners.
3. We need a couple of good patterners on the hosting team, cartographers of our Emerging Planetary Reality. They should include people who not only have an eye for grasping large, complex patterns of meaning but can also express them in forms that can be navigated by attenuating or amplifying the representation's complexity, as needed.
4. What can become possible through the "AoH of Conscious Evolution" process as an infinite game is nothing less than the emergence of the next of level of our world and human relationships.
Where we go from here? My sense is that we need to expand the conversation, by inviting those whom we sense could be good mates for this particular journey, co-crafting the Call to a hosting team and form the team. I can't see further than that but don't even need to, the process will reveal itself.
