Today on Emerge I’m speaking with Euvie Ivanova and Mike Gilliland, hosts of the Future Thinkers podcast.

This week I'm speaking with Mette Böll (Boell). Mette is a biologist by training, specializing in the evolution of complex social systems, mammalian play behavior and philosophy of nature. Mette has a Ph.D. in organizational ethology from the Center for Semiotics, Aarhus University, and holds additional degrees in contemplative leadership and the philosophy and history of science. She uses her training in these diverse areas to research how moods and feelings are transmitted in social relations and how the resulting relational fields in turn shape the larger systems human beings are parts of, with a particular focus on education.We talk about the study of social fields, generative vs. degenerative fields, the relationship between fields and systems, how generative fields create ‘magical classrooms’, the characteristics of a generative field, how the combination of systems science and systems sensing can help educate people to respond to the complex challenges of our world, and what generative fields in the K-12 education setting looks like, and the need to empower young people and get out of their way. Mette also shares inspiring stories from the early prototypes of this work in the American education system.Center for Systems Awareness--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/emerge/support
This week I'm speaking with Christopher Life. Christopher Life is the founder of OneNation, a new American political party dedicated to installing an all-win paradigm and rebirthing our democratic systems.Christopher and I talk about systems change as the next great social issue, the two party system as a hegemonic duopoly, OneNation as a generative alternative to the current system, omni-win vs win-lose, how the omni-win vision is the center of the shift needed to remake all the systems of society, win-lose thinking as a psycho-technology that is no longer adaptive, how empire uses polarization to maintain power, the need to create new collective intelligences and to experiment with new decision making systems, how OneNation will pull the disenfranchised and disengaged into a new political conversation, and the plan to make all-win cool and win-lose lame.Freakonomic Duopoly EpisodeBill Moyers Stages of Social ChangeOneNation Party USA--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/emerge/support

A 'playful' contemplation from my latest blogpost; "If we can imagine a thing, that thing is possible. The more we imagine a thing, the more likely it is to become probable. The stronger these imaginings, the more real they are likely to become... Matter was created from ‘thought’. All matter was imagined into being... Complete this statement; The illiterate of the future will be… those who are unable to imagine the impossible enough to manifest it". These imaginings were inspired by Emerge. https://intrograte.wordpress.com/2018/09/03/my-monday-messes-4

This abstract way of thinking hasn't intuitively clicked for me yet, but it does intuitively feel real. Hopefully the more I listen and explore, the greater an intuitive understanding I'll develop, until that click moment comes and it starts to become second nature. Thank-you for opening up this path for so many. I feel almost sure it will have positive, unpredictable, and likely even important, ramifications.

I've been doing this for the past 6 months on my own without realising it was a thing. It feels like I'm listening to my own thoughts being articulated, even though I have absolutely no experience in any Buddhist teachings. Why do I find that all at once cathartic, reassuring, confusing, and terrifying? I'm on the verge of tears. It feels like something strange and inexplicable is happening, and I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with all of this. Thank-you for these podcasts.

Question; I loved the point about authentic profound experiences not being universal. But can they sometimes be?

A little awkward to listen to at times, but a considered and worthwhile contribution to moving the conversation forward, all the more so as it progressed. Congratulations and well done, guys. I hope to hear further discussions like this, and more of them, going in to the future. Thank-you, and Consciousness bless you ❤.
