An Octologue is a small group of people (typically 8) who have undertaken to act together on a voluntary basis for the pursuit of an ethical purpose. Such a group makes unanimous decisions and also acts as a mutual feedback hub, whereby the members share their perceptions of one another in a very personal and intimate manner.

A HoloMat (generic term) is a group of Octologues joined by an ethical contract to serve a shared purpose. A HoloMat may consist of any number of Octologues.

The HOLOMAT is an online hub and resource center for many HoloMats to communicate with one another and to coordinate related activities for mutual advantage. When built, the HOLOMAT website/application will facilitate many kinds of interactions between individuals, Octologues, and HoloMats, and will provide for a wide range of memberships tailored to the needs of the individual or group. It will also act as a mechanism whereby individuals and groups will be able to find one another – e.g. Octologues seeking people with particular skills, or people looking for Octologues having specific purposes.

Watch for it here. It’s coming soon.

THE CHALLENGE OF “ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE”

 

THE CHALLENGE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE”

Artificial Intelligence

Birth of AI

By Bob Podolsky

Overview

It is commonly agreed by today’s scientists that computer technology will soon be sufficiently advanced to create machines that actually think or act autonomously – much the way humans do. Such machines are referred to in the literature as “Artificial Intelligence”, or AI for short.

As that time approaches, many scientists are becoming increasingly concerned that intelligent machines might be hostile to humans – or outright dangerous. The “Terminator” and “Matrix” movie series are fictional depictions of this risk, which renowned scientist Stephen Hawking, for example, takes seriously.

Assuming that the risk is real, which seems a reasonable starting point for this discussion, the question becomes, “how can the risk be ameliorated – or better still, eliminated”?

Two approaches have been suggested by Elon Musk and others from the Future of Life Institute:

  1. Design AI machines that are inherently safe, as outlined by Isaac Asimov in 1946,

  2. Somehow solve the problem through the application of ethics.

In the paragraphs below, I intend to demonstrate the reasoning by which I’ve come to the following conclusions:

  • For humans to live safely together with intelligent machines, the machines must be taught a suitable ethic via approach #1.

  • It is too late in the AI development cycle for the first approach to succeed, because machines are already being programmed with lethal capabilities.

  • The 2nd approach could succeed in principle, but for it to do so it will be necessary for humans, as a species, to learn to live safely and peacefully together with one another.

  • Living safely and peacefully with one another is a highly-valued outcome with or without intelligent machines. An ethical means of doing this exists, but is not yet widely known.

  • The most useful mind set in analyzing the problem is to regard self- aware intelligent machines as we would alien visitors from another star system.

Some Basics

To start, let’s examine the word, “intelligence”. As a behavioral descriptor the word is best defined as the ability to predict and control events in the real world. This is not (quite) the meaning of the word when used in the phrase “Artificial Intelligence”, in which context the word means a thing or being that exhibits such ability.

With this definition in mind, we recall that every intelligence must have certain components and properties:

  • Input devices – eyes, ears, sensory nerves, etc. – by which the intelligence can acquire information.

  • A means of storing, indexing, and retrieving acquired information.

  • An external communication means – display screen, printer, voice, etc.

  • One or more effectors – the hands and feet that can act on the environment.

  • A logic or reasoning function – brain

  • A purpose enabler or motivating component – a will.

  • Internal communicators that tie all the other components together.

As defined above, an intelligence is a being (of sorts), but not necessarily a conscious intelligence. It becomes conscious when it becomes aware of being aware. By my reckoning, beings having this capacity should be regarded as people, and treated accordingly – because they have enough awareness to learn to make ethical discernments. At this point too, it behooves us to acknowledge the being’s self-ownership – exactly as we would an adolescent human. Failing in this, our sentient robots become a race of slaves.

This might be a good time to note that “artificial intelligence” is a misnomer. A more accurate term would be “synthetic intelligence” or “non-human intelligence”. This is where the comparison with space-faring aliens becomes apt. We wouldn’t regard such beings as “things” just because their bodies were chemically different than our own. Any species sufficiently advanced to achieve interstellar travel must have long since stopped wasting its precious resources on wars and destruction – and would likely view humans, therefore, much as we might view the great apes: the phrase “promising but inferior” comes to mind. Though as far as I know the apes don’t make war on one another.

About the Ethics

As explained at some length in the article linked above, some ethics are valid and some are not. However, every valid ethic contains a non-aggression principle in one form or another: a statement that the initiation of force, or its threat, is unethical. The use of force is only ethical in (true) self-defense – and then only to the extent required to stop an unethical act of aggression.

By the definition above, most of the activities of the US military are unethical acts of aggression. Certainly attacking a wedding or funeral party in Afghanistan with a drone controlled from half way around the world is NOT an act of self defense. Nor is the concept of “acceptable collateral damage” an ethically defensible policy.

It is already a fact that the military is developing robots with lethal capabilities. Should those robots become autonomous (self-aware and self-programming) – or fall under the control of a computer having such properties – then we’ll have all the makings of a “Skynet” event.

Reality

The idea of programming self-aware robots with a prime directive that forbids them to harm humans is attractive – in principle. But succeeding at that task is to program a basic principle that we have yet to program in ourselves. Is that even remotely possible?

Add to that the additional complexity of teaching a robot to distinguish friend from foe, and the success of the task becomes highly improbable. What is more, if one could program a robot to act ethically, it would never agree to kill people overseas to begin with. Face it! War as we know it is unethical.

In fact, almost all of our societal institutions consistently make highly unethical decisions. So why would we expect the sentient robots we create to act more ethically than we do?

Is There a Solution?

Yes, there is an answer – but the window of opportunity to apply it is closing even now. To live at peace with non-human intelligences we must learn to live at peace with one another. It’s that simple (but not easy).

If we have the will to do so, here are the steps:

  1. Replace hierarchies everywhere with HoloMats of Octologues.

  2. Adopt the Bill of Ethics as the basic ethical standard everywhere.

  3. Let the existing system die of attrition, as more and more people migrate to the new system and cease supporting the old one.

For this solution to succeed, a massive promotional effort is required starting immediately. The public must learn of the new system, recognize its benefits, and adopt it. Failing in this, we will shortly be looking at a new “dark age” – or worse.

On the other hand, if the above steps are taken successfully, we could see the beginning of a new age of peace, prosperity, creativity, and love, on a scale heretofore unimaginable.

The Power of Manifestation

What was only a few weeks ago, August 10, 2013, I was at a meeting Gaia’s house with Cronus, we were learning some advanced techniques for getting into rapport with other people, as we start building Titania. For those of you who don’t know, I have been involved in Titania with Cronus since 2005, when I met him at the Palm Beach County Libertarian meeting. How I got from Anthem to Boca Raton was a trip in itself. And don’t even get me started on talking about the “Trip” back to the Phoenix area. On the way, I lost the belt on my Sally Car and she was a tight squeeze, so when it went, it bent the valves. Word to the wise “when you have an interference motor, change the belt at 100k”!!!! I spent 2 weeks broke down in Fabian Texas. Now that’s a story, I taught myself how to pan, to get Sally and me back to Phoenix.

At the he meeting where I met Cronus, he was giving a presentation about Creativity, Ethics, a place called Titanium, a half-baked evil pseudo-organization known as, “THE BORG”, for god’s sakes and most importantly how human beings are unwittingly trapped in one or more hierarchies, which consistently make UN-Ethical Decisions. I hear a lot of people flap their jaws at me, some of them the best in the business, mostly customers who are the biggest LIARS, and I ain’t never heard this kind of flap! For me it’s either pitch or catch. I prefer pitching ’cause there is more money on that side, however if you have something real good, I also enjoy a good catch. And if you have something really good I will pick up the ball and pitch too. It’s just how I roll!

Now being this is MY Life and MY body is MY property, I want to be who I want to be, so I am Morpheus. You know, “The Bringer of the Dream“. You betcha, baby. I know it’s kinda silly, but isn’t the world as a whole, kinda whacked out of it’s mind also? Plus, as long as I am living in some kind of science fiction movie, I might as well play my part! What really inspired me about Cronus at that time, he seemed to actually have a LONG TERM SOLUTION, that would solve all the the Big Problems in the world. In addition, according to Cronus, all the problems we face like: Bureaucracy, Chem Trails, Extortion, Genocide, Race-Hatred, Corruption, Hunger, Slavery, Crime, Ignorance, Terrorism, Taxation, Drug Addiction, Police State, Pollution, Violence, Exploitation,Poverty, Sex Trade, Legal Bullying, Homelessness, Monetary Devaluation and War are actually just symptoms of exactly ONE PROBLEM. That’s it, just ONE, now that’s really MENTAL. This ONE BIG PROBLEM, is created by hierarchical organizations at the top of the pyramid, making consistently UN-Ethical decisions. All the other problems, mentioned above are actually just the symptoms.

BTW this bald, really old guy, whose looks sometimes remind me of Dr. Evil, had the audacity to say that the implementation of this new way of organizing anarchists, could make a substantive change in humanity, one that could prevent its very extinction. Ha Ha Ha ROTFLMAO! You know, I like a good joke, guess the universe was playing one on me this time. His presentation, which I have to add, is considerably better than the the first one I heard him do at the West Palm Beach Macaroni Grill, in what seems a lifetime ago. His presentation was so far and away different than anything I had heard in my entire life, from the propagandists on TV, Radio, print both in papers and in books, politicians, preachers, teachers,  freedom movement gurus, yogi’s, Jesus Christ, Socrates, republicans, democrats, libertarians, anarchists, communist, psychologists, my parents, my ex’s, my friends and even myself about all the problems in the world. What was so different about his presentation was he talked about a solution that involved a new way to organize human beings that made them more Creative and Ethical. I had never heard anything remotely close to what he was offering. What was really mental, is this guy actually made sense! The other thing that blew me away, was that his father Boris, did a physics theory (Cronus would say a paper) with Albert  Einstein. Hello, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”…Right?

Since becoming aware of these Power Brokerage Cartels and the damage they do to humanity, (9/11, Gulf of Tonkin, Martin Luther King, JFK, Jesus Christ, the War of Northern Aggression, The Holocaust, the Decimation of the American Indians, the Spanish Inquisition etc, etc, etc) it’s become a passion of mine to completely disengage from the system, most especially the “legal” system. I don’t want to have anything to do with them, so I don’t. It’s also another reason to do the Morpheus thing.  Recently I was able to travel to Dallas to hang out with my good friend Jordan Page, and even though, the trip home was a bit more hairy, courtesy of the Toothpaste Stealing Agents (TSA)  still I made it there and back, without ID. But hey, that’s another story. Its another good one, so keep on coming back!

Walking Through Valley of the Shadow of Death

So there we are at the meeting and someone mentioned that Foster Gamble, the creator of the Thrive Movement was going to be at Libertopia. Cronus had already been communicating with Foster and I knew he had to press his flesh. So as soon as I heard this, my instant reaction was to say, “I will be at Libertopia, even if I have to pan handle to get there. And if I have to put Cronus in a four way to get him into my conveyance to get him there, I would do that as well.” Well, I wouldn’t really put him in a four way and I didn’t want to pan to get there either. We all have our own lives to lead, without being coerced. I just wanted to have everyone know, including myself – ‘Brother, I am going to be there’. You can make a million dollars or you can make a million excuses, you cannot do both. I’d like a million federal reserve notes please, so no excuses from me.

To me it’s all about the decision. Make it firm and know you are going to do it. Fear, doubt and worry can never even enter into your mind. I run the program backwards and then it’s just a matter of showing up and doing everything possible to make it happen. 90% of Success is just showing up. Actually I would rate it at 100% ’cause I have never sold a deal when I didn’t show up. This is where many people get hung up and allow fear, doubt and worry to take over. They come up with excuses on why they can’t do it, or why it won’t work. When I was studying the Kabbalah in Boca Raton, I was told “whatever you resist, THAT is what you need to do.”

Then it’s just a matter of putting your faith in yourself and god. That’s when the magic happens. Those who are atheists can put their faith in themselves and the god of logic. I don’t give a shit. In AA they told me you want god to be the doorknob, god is the doorknob. That was another eye opener. Wait a second…I can believe whatever I want to believe AND my beliefs do not require anyone else to believe as I do…That’s Heavy. When I came to grips with that one, it was like a heavy weight was loaded off my shoulders. You can use it too, if you like it. At least it works for me, and right now, this is my movie, not urs. The faith thing is what does it for me. I believe in Destiny, which happens to be my daughter’s name, ‘Destinee’. What works best for me, is the 23rd Psalm. I have it taped to my steering wheel. I read it several times a day. I do not profess to be a Christian, I prefer born again PAGAN.

Psalm 23 The LORD Is My Shepherd

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord FOR EVER.

Well, the week before Libertopia, I had a major epiphany: Forever is a long time right? Forever extends into infinity into the future and it also extends the same way in the PAST! That being the case, I am IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD RIGHT NOW!… Baby! So many digressions so little time, and pixels too, lol! The other one is shall, is the strongest word in law. Like thou SHALL not Kill. Ten Commandments shit. Some guy asked me a few months back, when I was at the Arizona Freedom Fest, if I was “Saved by Jesus” I told him “the LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. Tell me what more I need to know.” Shut his ass up. That’s because it is IMPOSSIBLE to want ’cause “I SHALL NOT WANT”, maybe I am just crazy.

After having the most awesome time at Libertopia and meeting all the super strong’s people there. I was giddy1DMGuMppvRjg21jj3Eo7TYmwWvuY1Dsyh4 to have all the fantastic conversations with everyone, and you know who you are. I also had the extreme pleasure of having dinner with Mike Badnarik, Foster Gamble, Clyde Cleveland, Bob Podolsky, Bernard von NotHaus, Gaia, Mercury and Keith, not once, but TWICE. What a coup d’etat to have all these heavy weights endorsing the Titania Project! I had the extreme pleasure to introduce Clyde Cleveland, Michael Badnarik, Foster Gamble and Bob Podolsky for a panel discussion on the Titania Project. It was just plain crazy! Like Straight Up and Down! The video will be out soon. I hope you will sign up on the site and I give you permission to add the alt names on the pictures. If there is a picture that you would like or one you want me to delete, email me at M-o-r-p-h-e-u-s@titanians>.<org (no dashes). I will get it to you in higher resolution and without my watermark in it. I do take donations in BITCOIN 1DMGuMppvRjg21jj3Eo7TYmwWvuY1Dsyh4

So get out there and rock,and Roll the Bones…Get Busy!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

HISTORIC MEETING OF THE MINDS

San Diego, California, August 30th to September the 2nd –4th annual Libertopia Fest 2013 at the Town and Country Resort Hotel, located 500 Hotel Circle North, San Diego, CA 92108. Libertopia is a voluntary community, based on principles of Freedom, Peace, Honor, Responsibility, Respect and Spontaneous Order. Libertopia is a unique event that features an environment of actually living the freedom philosophy in ones daily life.

In conjunction with the spirit of Libertopia, of living the life you have always wanted, are 4 major freedom activists, who will be communicating the benefits of the Titania Project:

Foster Gamble, creator of the inspiring movie, Thrive and leader of the Thrive Movement – one of the most innovative strategies aimed at worldwide peace and prosperity,

Clyde Cleveland, author of Common Sense Revisited and Restoring the Heart of America, co-founder of the County Sheriff Project, and lifelong libertarian educator and activist – with a unique perspective on the role of politics in human history,

Michael Badnarik, author of Good to Be King and Secret to Sovereignty, Libertarian candidate for President in 2004, a renowned expert on constitutional law and individual sovereignty.  Michael knows intimately the obstacles to substantive change faced by today’s freedom activists.

Bob Podolsky, physicist / systems analyst, master psychotherapist, visionary and author of seven books on ethics law and government. Bob brings a SOLUTION based strategy for self-governance AND self awareness…Without Government! With 20 years of scientific research spanning 2,500 years of historical evidence.

Of the many excellent participants slated to appear at this year’s event, the four above are embracing a new approach to solving the problems created by our coercive institutions (BORG). They will also present evidence that this integrated approach is optimal for maximizing the probability of the movement’s success.

Humanity’s BIG PROBLEM is simply our societal institutions consistently making unethical decisions. All the other problems our species faces are simply symptoms of this one pivotal challenge. To cure the symptoms of war, hunger, poverty, financial slavery, police brutality, government corruption, the war on drugs, GMO foods, chemtrail deployments, gun confiscation, asset forfeiture, media collusion – or any other manifestation of treasonous violence inflicted on the public under color of law, we need only create ethical institutions.

Come to Libertopia to learn what some of the brightest minds in the freedom movement are doing to bring this about.

Start taking effective action to establish an ethical, creative, loving, grassroots-based culture that leads directly to a world of peace and prosperity. The answers you’ve been looking for are available NOW. Stop wasting time hacking at the branches of the tree of tyranny and start attacking tyranny at the root, where it really counts. See you at Libertopia! Roll the Bones!

WE WILL HAVE SPECIFICS ON THE TIME AND PLACE FOR BREAKOUT MEETING AT “COMMON SENSE REVISITED” BOOTH

 

Titanian Organization

 

How Titania Is Organized

Titania is, of course, organized as a HoloMat. The diagram below shows what it will look like as people with the requisite skills and interests join. As you can see, as Titania grows it will afford many opportunities. Each little octagon below represents an Octologue. The Octologues attach to one another via contracts to form HoloMats. Small HoloMats cooperate with one another to form large HoloMats. Some Octologues are associated with multiple HoloMats – and thus HoloMats can overlap.

 

The Titania HoloMat

Titania’s Future with 576 Participants

Using this system all the HoloMats are interlocked and can give each other corrective feedback.  The center HoloMat is interlocked with the Research, Law, Council of Servants, Security, Information Technology / Records, Member Services, Council of Servants and Education HoloMats.   These HoloMats are then interlocked with Money Business, Mission – Vision, Communications, and Web Interface HoloMats.  They are interlocked for example, because there are members in the education HoloMat are also members in the  Research, Law, Council of Servants and Money / Business HoloMats.

The Interlocking HoloMats, allows for each individual Octologue and HoloMats to give each other the corrective feedback they need to have the whole society functioning in a Thriving manner.

As Titania continues to grow, each one of these HoloMats will spin off more and more HoloMats.  By working in these non-hierarchical groups of 8 where a unanimous decision must be made for that group to take action.  This kind of group decision process , which was discovered by John David Garcia and Bob Podolsky, is now being taught in Arizona at the Creativity Enhancement MasterMind Group.  Come and be part of a Thriving Ethical Creative Society…Titania!

Gaia’s Dream

 

GAIA’S DREAM

An Excerpt from Make It So!

By Robert Podolsky

The planet’s biosphere is alive; or so say our modern experts; it’s a living entity.  The planet itself may be part of that entity.  Together they demonstrate many of the properties of other living beings.  We call the Living Earth “Gaia” after the mythical Earth Goddess.  But it seems to me that if the planet is alive and aware (and I tend to agree she is) she is surely aware the way a person sleeping is aware.  Like the sleeper, Gaia stirs, reacts to certain stimuli, adjusts her metabolism to deal with our changes in her chemistry, and perhaps…she dreams.

In their Midéwiwin medicine rituals the Ojibwas say, “The circle of the earth is the head of a great drum.  It moves upward with the day…booming.  It moves downward with the night…booming.  We are but particles of dust as we dance upon the drumhead.  Some of us move upward with the day…booming.  Some of us move downward with the night…booming.  Only those who dream of leaping to the stars from the head of the great drum attain the grand medicine of the Midéwiwin[1].   Only those who dream…

If Gaia dreams, where are those dreams?  Are they in the stone beneath us; in the bones of the earth?  Are they in the oceans, our “Googol-Great Grandmother”?  Are they in the genes of the planet’s flora and fauna?  Are they holograms in the planet’s magnetic field?  Are they ripples in a holographic universe?  Pondering these and related questions we amuse ourselves; we doze; we imagine ourselves as Gaia, somnolent and fecund.  Our vision attenuates, wavers, and re-clears.  We hear our heartbeat; then we hear many heartbeats; then the beat of many hearts, the sound of a great drum.  Our breath becomes the tide; our aura, the Milky Way.  Our vision seems unlimited in dimensions we’ve never seen before.  Time fragments; Causality is suspended; and suddenly our bodies are everywhere at once…and nowhere too.

Have you ever noticed how it feels to dream?  The dream seems to take over, as if it had a life of its own.  Is it obvious that the self we dream isn’t the dreamer?  The self we experience in a dream has been dreamed by someone, but by whom?  I have often wondered this.  At last as I contact Gaia I know the answer: I am Gaia’s dream…and so are you.

Now I have Lucid Dreams; wherein I know I am dreaming, yet continue to dream.  Such is life.  Such is reality.  During a lucid dream we can choose reality and experience many things otherwise unavailable to us.  We can peek over the event horizon.  It is a highly creative state, where we have the power to forge a new reality, a better future for Gaia.

You can follow along with me now; for as I am Gaia…so are you.  We dream together whether we choose to or not.  Either we do it outside of consciousness, as in a conventional dream; or we can choose to do it lucidly, in full awareness.  If we dream together lucidly we can raise Gaia’s level of awareness to that of consciousness.  And finally we can dream Gaia fully conscious and aware of her own awareness.  Then we merge with God and all things are possible.

The fabric of Gaia’s dreams is the fabric of all dreams, including yours and mine.  To dream of a better world, a better humanity, a better social structure is to permit Gaia to dream with greater awareness.  Perhaps she dreams of being awake, conscious, fully aware.  What does she dream?

We know what she dreams.  She dreams our reality.  She dreams our deepest fears and our highest aspirations.   She sees a world of possibilities and we choose between the reality of hope and the realities of fear, despite, and despair.  Dream with me now a world of peace, harmony, and love

In Gaia’s shadow the winds of Time are stilled; Causality is unnecessary; and Einstein slumbers.  We can set aside our doubts for now; we will need them later.

The year is 511 BOE, Bill Of Ethics, which corresponds to 2,506 AD by the old calendar.  On “Spaceship Earth”[2] much has changed over the past five hundred years.  The air and water are clean…as pure as they were 1,000 years before.  The forests have expanded their boundaries.  Once again the wildlife thrives in every corner of the world.  All species are safe from Mankind’s earlier depredations.

Looking closer we see that humanity numbers only 1.0 billion souls, a light burden for the planet to support.  The population level is stable; and humanity is healthy and long-lived.  A life expectancy of 200 years is typical.  Soon that number will rise even higher as one by one the debilitating diseases of aging are conquered.  As the human life-span expands the birth rate diminishes so that the population remains stable, in keeping with a long-term plan.

There is no War on this planet; no hostile factions eager for one another’s demise; no inter-racial, intercultural, inter-religious, international conflict that isn’t settled peacefully and to mutual satisfaction.  Racism, Sexism, Religionism, Nationalism, and all the other “isms” that used to foster hatred and despite are now things of the past.

The interpersonal communications know-how and the values and beliefs that make peace possible are learned in our workplaces, in our homes, in our spiritual institutions, and in our schools; and life is sweet for our children.  Today the primary focus of early education is making sure that every child has a place in our society; that no one feels left out…alienated. Because of this culture, education is at last in its ascendancy.  Our education is “student-centered”, existing for the benefit of the student rather than for the purposes of prospective employers or other institutional beneficiaries.   No one lacks this resource and therefore human society is universally supportive of lifelong learning by all people.  More than half of all education takes place outside the classroom in the homes and businesses of participating members of the community.  The community has thus become the extended family of every child.  No child feels alone or unwanted for more than a few minutes and every child has loving adults to turn to for support at any time of the day or night.  This fact alone has profoundly altered the course of human history.

People travel freely everywhere on the planet and off without concern for national boundaries, which are today as transparent as state boundaries were in the United States of 500 years ago.  No one is embargoed. There are no tariffs on trade.  All commerce is conducted freely and without protectionist restraints.

There is no Poverty on this planet that is not self-imposed.  All persons have economic opportunities sufficient to ensure their prosperity if they choose to avail themselves thereof.  There is also no “financial slavery” that was once so commonly imposed on the majority by the wealthy few who owned the megalithic corporations of the early 21st century.  Today’s business entities are comprised of very small groups of individuals; rarely numbering more than eight.  Decisions within such groups are always made unanimously using consensus formation methods that have been taught publicly since 2004.

When a big project is embarked upon, many such “Octologues” band together contractually  as a HoloMat to cooperate in accomplishing the project.  This way it is rare that an enterprise, once mature, isn’t owned and managed by those whose creativity and productivity are the source of the organization’s wealth.  For this reason largely, bureaucracy, that is the systematic elimination of corrective feedback within an organization, has been all but eliminated; and a host of other ills eradicated along with it.

There is little drudgery in the world.  When asked, people explain that their chosen work gives meaning to their lives.  It is at the same time financially rewarding and emotionally fulfilling.

Crime is almost non-existent since there is such a wide range of financial opportunity available to everyone; and everyone has better things to do with their time.

And what is more, the meaning of “crime” has changed as the meaning of “law” has evolved; and this in turn has resulted from a profound change in the nature and function of “government”.

Today’s governments bear little resemblance to those of five hundred years ago.  Today “government” means “consensus”, an activity in which almost all people participate actively and which is universally trusted as benign and supportive.  Only those who seek to injure, control, or exploit others have anything to fear from government today; as government takes nothing away from the individual against their will and safeguards the rights of all citizens.   In exchange for this extraordinary service the citizens of the world have taken on the responsibilities of self-determination, initiative, and enterprise which former governments have (but no longer) sought to usurp in order to control and exploit their own citizenry.

Seven hundred and twenty five years ago a creative and well-meaning group of individuals dreamed of a society in which government was, “…of the people, for the people, and by the people.”  In hopes of achieving this end they had fought a bloody revolution and won their independence from a tyrannical monarchy.  Then they established a constitution and amended it with a Bill of Rights.  The resulting societal experiment was glorious…but badly flawed.

So, five hundred years ago a new experiment was begun… with a Bloodless Revolution.  Having learned many lessons from the first experiment, this one was substantially less flawed.

As we waken from this dream its power and memory persist; and we realize we are living in a special era of time, an era of catalytic change.  Humanity’s current way of life is not sustainable.  It will either lead to human extinction or to massive change in our social fabric…or both.   I vote for massive positive change.   To that end I dedicate my life to the Bloodless Revolution, which is already beginning.  The foundation stones of a viable plan have already been drafted.  A “mastermind group” (á la Napoleon Hill) is already being recruited.  The past will not be the future.

To realize any great dream it is necessary to have a sensory-based definition of the dream’s eventual outcome.  In other words we have to know what we will see, hear, and experience when we have succeeded.  The forgoing pages are, for me, the beginnings of such a definition.  But there is one subtler criterion that I think must apply.  When Gaia’s Dream is truly an emerging reality, the decisions that humans make collectively, whether in small groups or large, must be generally recognizable as wiser and more ethical than any decision that could be made alone by any member of that group.  When this is the prevailing truth we will know that Gaia herself is a participant in the decision making process.

Meanwhile, aspiring to realize this dream, we have to face a really BIG PROBLEM.

Holomats & Octologues

and THE OCTOLOGUE

by Bob Podolsky

 Advantages of Octologues and HoloMats

From a Titanian perspective, the essential building-blocks of a plausible thriving ethical society are the Octologue and the Holotropic Matrix (HoloMat / HoloMatrix).  The Octologue and HoloMat / HoloMatrix are organizational models that convey a number of extraordinary benefits to their participants. For instance:

  • They are non-hierarchic – each participant having the same status as every other.
  • Their decisions are unanimous – thus avoiding the pitfalls of majority rule.
  • Their actions are highly ethical – each participant understanding the Ethics and committing to act in accordance therewith.
  • They are highly sensitive to feedback – and thus almost totally resistant to bureaucratization and corruption.
  • Their participants regularly engage in a communication process (Autopoesis – see below) that amplifies the creativity of the entire group.
  • They can be organized to achieve any desired ethical goal or objective – as businesses, schools, charities, etc.
  • When competing with hierarchic groups of similar size and having access to similar resources, an Octologue or HoloMat will win the competition, hands down!
  • Participants enjoy working in an Octologue/HoloMat environment far more than they do in a traditional hierarchic environment.

The Makeup of an Octologue – The Building-block of the Holotropic Matrix

John David Garcia spent twenty years researching how to maximize the creativity of a group of people working together on a joint project. After performing hundreds of experiments, he came up with an optimized model that he called an “Octet”, having the following characteristics:

  1. The group is comprised of eight people ± 1 – in other words 7 to 9 people, with 8 being best.
  2. The group is comprised of four men and four women ± 1 – again 4×4 is best, but 3×4 or 4×5 is acceptable.
  3. The group members all understand the principles of Ethics as exemplified by the Bill of Ethics and are committed to acting ethically to the best of their ability.
  4. Participation in the group is voluntary. Anyone can quit at any time for any reason.
  5. Only unanimous decisions by the group are recognized as true group decisions.
  6. A group member can only be expelled by the group if all the other members agree unanimously.
  7. The group has been trained in a communication protocol that facilitates the making of unanimous decisions.
  8. The group meets as often as it likes – once a week often being optimal – once a month being the least frequent occurrence that works – specifically to engage in a communication protocol called “Autopoesis”, a process that amplifies the group’s creativity.
  9. The group need not engage in Autopoesis at every meeting; but should do so at least once a month for meaningful results.

I was friends with John David for 17 years, until his demise in 2001, and participated in a number of his experiments in the field of maximizing creativity. My main personal contribution to John David’s work was to improve on his method of Autopoesis. In John David’s Octets, it took several days of training for a group of eight to learn the process. Using my knowledge of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and my 20 years experience as a clinical psychotherapist, I shortened the training time to just a few hours. Also, the onset of the Autopoesis phenomenon occurs much faster with my method. I call an Octet using my model of Autopoesis an “Octologue”. Details of the Autopoesis process are described below – but first let’s turn to the HoloMat.

The Holotropic Matrix – or HoloMat

It is obvious that many worthwhile projects require more than eight people. The solution is simple – the project is undertaken by multiple Octologues that have entered into an ethical contract with each other. More than twenty years ago I decided to call such a contractual concatenation of Octologues a Holotropic Matrix – or HoloMatTM for short – drawing a parallel between the way a hologram distributes information in such a way that the information contained is available throughout the hologram – and the way a HoloMat distributes both information and responsibility. There is no practical limit to the size of a HoloMat. For really big projects, a HoloMat could have millions of members – or even tens of millions.

One of the biggest differences between a hierarchy and a HoloMat is that a hierarchy is designed to avoid, eliminate or destroy corrective feedback and a HoloMat is designed to elicit and encourage corrective feedback.  In a Hierarchy the information flows down, in a HoloMat information flow UP!  Any participant in the HoloMat can give corrective feedback that will be valuable and be heard at any level of the organization!   – Whereas, in a hierarchy if they wanted your opinion, they would be giving it to you!

Autopoesis – The Most Unique Feature of Octologues and HoloMats

Trance: In order to explain Autopoesis most succinctly, I’ll first explain the word “trance” – a word that is much maligned and much misunderstood. Many people fear trance, thinking it’s a supernatural phenomenon – or even a “tool of the devil”. This is utter nonsense! Trance is merely something you do. It’s a label for paying attention to your sensory experience in a way that is different from what you do most of the time. It’s a totally natural phenomenon.

For instance, when you are waking up from sleep or in the process of falling asleep, you go through a stage where you are neither really asleep nor awake – it’s a trance state, an “altered state of conscious”. Similarly, when you are driving on a road with boring roadsides, you will often enter a “driving trance”, in which you are driving competently but also thinking of other things. You usually become aware of this when you approach your destination and realize that the time that has passed while you were driving “feels” less than you know it had to be. Such time distortion is one of many things you can do in trance that you can’t readily do in your normal state of awareness.

Hypnosis: While we’re on the subject of trance, let’s briefly talk about “hypnosis” – another word that is much misunderstood. When you are hypnotized, the operator (hypnotist) does not “put” you in a trance; nor can you be forced into a trance (barring the use of drugs). Rather the operator leads you into the trance state. Imagine I hold up my hand and ask you to look at it. You are, of course, free to refuse – or to do something completely different from what I’ve asked of you. So it is with hypnosis. The difference is that it is your subconscious that decides how you will respond – and in most people the subconscious is innately curious – and happy to learn new ways of perceiving. So trance is just another kind of learning experience.

And if you’re one of those folks who worry that a hypnotist might persuade them to do something against their will – or contrary to their morals – it just can’t happen. Given an obnoxious hypnotic suggestion, the subject will exit the trance and leave – often angrily.

Autopoesis – Finally

So what is Autopoesis and how does it work? Here are the basics. In a nutshell, Autopoesis is a group trance state. The members of an Octologue sit on comfortable chairs in a tight circle with their arms on the shoulders of their neighbors. Bare feet touch in the middle of the circle. A Bach fugue plays softly in the background. A hypnotic facilitator leads the experience verbally, making direct and indirect suggestions that enable the members of the group to alter their consciousness in a particular manner. The rules to which the group members have agreed are simple:

  • A subject of autopoetic interest has been agreed upon before the session;
  • Each member is encouraged to think about the subject with both his/her conscious and subconscious minds;
  • When a thought occurs to a member that seems interesting, and the member feels an urge to share the thought aloud, he/she withholds the information the first time the urge to speak occurs;
  • If the thought recurs, the person thinking it is obliged to speak it aloud – no matter how strange, weird, irrational, bizarre, or otherwise nonsensical it may seem.
  • The session continues until someone (anyone) in the group requests that it end.
  • Such sessions are usually recorded for later play-back – because participants often don’t recall what has been said – even if they were the one to have spoken.

It should be noted that it is often the strangest autopoetic comments that turn out to be the most creative and useful when carefully examined later. By this means the Octologue accesses information that no one in the group could access on their own – though many creative individuals use altered “mystical” states as part of their creative methodology. Still, the synergy of the group trance seems to act as an amplifier of each individual’s creativity – thus yielding a level of innovation greater than the sum of the individual participants’ capabilities.

What Is the Experience Like?

Some people appear to go to sleep – though this doesn’t prevent them from speaking. For most participants, the best description of the experience is that of a “shared lucid dream”. If you’ve seen it, think of the movie “Inception” with Leonardo DiCaprio for a moment. It is pleasant; it may be exciting at times; and many feel saddened or disappointed when it is over. This description applies equally well to some other forms of hypnotically induced group trances.

How Does It work?

We don’t really know for sure how Autopoesis works – but we have a hypothesis that fits the facts. According to author Michael Talbot, the universe is holographic.1 If this hypothesis is correct, and there is much evidence to support it, all the information that exists in the universe is available everywhere. A second postulate of the hypothesis is that the human brain is a quantum mechanical “machine” that is able, under the right conditions, to reach out into the holographic quantum universe and retrieve whatever information it is seeking – including both true information and false information. Science provides the tools and methodology by means of which we determine whether new information is true or false.

I must also point out that the Religious Society of Friends (a.k.a. Quakers) employs a method of group decision-making that bears some striking similarities to Autopoesis.2 Quiet contemplation… awaiting the inspiration of God… distrust of initial urges to speak… obligation to speak when the “presence” is perceived… requirement of unanimity for decisions… and much more. For certain, sitting in empty silence waiting for God’s presence to be felt…and God’s wishes to be heard and understood constitutes an “altered state of awareness” if there ever was one. Moreover, as John David Garcia pointed out, the creative acts of every great scientist may be seen as “mystical” experiences – making each a “scientific mystic” – distinctly different from a “mystical scientist”.3

The Grand Experiment:  Cultural Evolution

John David proved unequivocally, through hundreds of scientific experiments, that this process creates the greatest creativity in groups.  Creativity is what has brought us fire, the renaissance, the chair you are sitting in, and the computer you are reading this with.  Yet humanity is fraught with problems. Let us release ourselves from this self imposed bondage.   I am prepared to share the knowledge of how we may be able to do this with those individuals whose personal evolution brings us together.   Contact me now at 561-542-5800 and we will perform the “Grand Experiment”, lest this be our last generation.  Albert Einstein said “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones

Now that  you know what a HoloMat is, let’s see how this is reflected in the Constitution for Titania.

The Titania Project

 

Now that we understand the E+ Ethic and the falsehood of the Comforting Lies, it makes sense to ask what we can do to correct the situation.  The TITANIA PROJECT is a plausible answer to this question.

It is a demonstrable fact that all the blessings of life in human society can be causally traced to someone’s creativity. This means that advances in science, business, the arts, technological progress, social evolution, material prosperity, spiritual awareness, and even love and happiness all derive from creativity. Creativity is literally the life-spring of all we value and hold dear in life. It behooves us therefore, to organize our private and public institutions around a set of ethical principles that maximize the creativity of our citizenry.

Accordingly, TITANIA is dedicated to the promotion of peace, love, creativity, and personal evolution through the pursuit of three objectives:

1. Abandonment of the Comforting Lies,
2. Widespread adoption of the E+ Ethic /Titanian Code of Honor and
3. Replacement of our hierarchic institutions with a new kind of institution, known as an Octologue  that refutes the Comforting lies and embraces the E+ Ethic.

Success in this endeavor requires massive education of the public.  Using the Ethical Group known as the Octologue, that is scientifically designed to encourage feedback and boost Creativity, we can use this technology to create the society we wish to live in.   The larger version of the Octologue is known as a Holomat, which is a group of Octologues linked together.  These HoloMats can also be linked together making larger HoloMats.  As Titanian Citizens  are trained to use the technology, the process starts growing it builds on it self slowly at first then faster and faster. Being Octologues grow at a factor of 8, and the participants experience increased creativity,  it will grow at a rapid rate.  Many HoloMats need to be filled to create a thriving society
