( Up2Met )
Leave a comment on paragraph 7 0
Human systems are not what the best of science has claimed to know.
Some of our knowledge is accurate;
much is not, and
the patterns-of-the-whole are early emergent.
¶ 10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 In Up2Met, details for later stages are to be worked out when participants have bootstrap uplifted themselves to requisite levels of knowledge and competencies to design and execute later stages. Today, we lack that requisite knowledge and competency. It is possible that the Cultural/Societal Metamorphosis envisioned may not occur as currently imagined, but these alternatives cannot be imagined today.
¶ 13 Leave a comment on paragraph 13 0 The concrete action for NOW, is not to formally launch Up2Met, or even compose a draft. What is NOW needed is the commencement of the OLLO process among a small population of persons prepared to engage in OLLO and eventually design the initiation of an early stage of Up2Met and launch its implementation.
¶ 15 Leave a comment on paragraph 15 0 Participants in OLLO must accept that they have limitations, as do all human persons, and that our current sets of knowledge & competencies (as useful as they are) are not yet adequate for us to fully engage in what we must do in the future. We must resist too much detail in defining “what we need“, as one of our tasks is to gain requisite knowledge & competencies to learn “what we need“.
At a much smaller scale and with some issues in analogy, The Apollo Program had much of the dynamics of Up2Met.
At the beginning there was the grand vision/mission of humans going to the moon and returning safe.
At the beginning we lacked both the technological and organizational knowledge to achieve that objective.
We learned-to-learn and learned-to-learn-to learn.
It might be useful for someone to explore details of early NASA – not so much about the technology of space flight, but of learning-to-organize-to-do what was needed (and to learn “what was needed”).
¶ 21 Leave a comment on paragraph 21 0 Those engaging in OLLO may discover they become prepared (knowledgeable, competent, & organized) to accomplish a great many projects currently needed, but not being done because of the lack of adequately prepared participants. These many projects would probably be component projects in preparing for CS-Metamorphosis (including protecting endangered populations and possibly blocking catastrophic societal collapses which would delay Up2Met).
¶ 22 Leave a comment on paragraph 22 0 The primary task of OLLO is uplifting knowledge, competencies, and organizing – FOR THE PARTICIPANTS, ONLY. OLLO is not a process for teachers to educate students, or for activists to inform the public.
¶ 23 Leave a comment on paragraph 23 0 UPLIFT-with-OLLO is designed to grow exponentially in numbers of participants. But, it is never to be applied by one group to “uplift” another group. Such techniques may be appropriate, but they are not what is proposed for UPLIFT-with-OLLO. There is good rationale for this, but it will not be provided here. OLLO may adopt/modify systems/processes from contemporary humankind; but none of our “traditional” systems/processes are “sacred” and none must be imprinted on the nu humanity. Up2Met never attempts to reform or transform large social or societal systems in contemporary humankind, to become equivalent systems/processes in Up2Met. Small families and teams can be exceptions – but they are expected to be significantly morphed to be nu-style families or teams in Up2Met.
¶ 24 Leave a comment on paragraph 24 0 Up2Met is more an incomplete story-line, at this time, than a plan – but it offers to carry humankind from our current Here&Now, in many stages, to a time when the future appears secure and we have “dodged the bullet”.
¶ 25 Leave a comment on paragraph 25 0 There is no intent to define the “state” of future humanity – that will be done (in stages, and always experimental) by those uplifted and organized humans – in earlier stages, who will self-emerge as the nu humanity.
¶ 26 Leave a comment on paragraph 26 0 I, Larry/nuet, have no intention of imposing any of my limited ideas and biases on the distant future. However, I will attempt to recommend certain conditions on our near future that will enable us to survive/thrive the next few years and decades – as we “collectively collaborate” in emerging Up2Met.
