Paradigm Shift in Listening


Thanks for watching!

Please return to  Sqale  to Value and Comment so that the person who shared this with you can see your Value and Comment. The Share with others who you think might be interested.

This is part of a bundle of videos which are attempting to zone in on ‘We-ness’. Here’s the rest of the  videos in that playlist.

Seeking Documentary Makers

I can’t be bothered creating a specific card for this video. If I do, I’ll link it here.

The basic idea is to put it out through the network, and someone is going to step up at some point. The earlier the better.

Seed, Shoot, Plant

This is the meta, so that we get the idea of how anyone can go from an idea to team formation, to social test. I think this can be tightened, integrated with ABC State. The standard order of three parts of Value, Share and Support are suited for presentation, more like a lecture, and the creation of a non-judgemental space.

This seed-shoot-plan has a different sequence which operates a different social purpose: from idea to crowd-sourcing, to crowd-testing. It is invitational. Perhaps we should call it the Invitational, or innovation, or co-creative protocol?

Social Neuron

As described, this is a very rough brief of what is required. If you are interested, get in touch. I’ll post a specific link to this video here.

Action Cycle

This is an example of the Seed Protocol. I present the basic notion of the card game, which is quite well developed in this case. Folks are invited to take part in Part 2, where the exact rules are gone over, and perhaps people have variations, responses etc. And then anyone who wants to sets up a real world Action Cycle in an organisation (or a network), and we record it as Part 3. The documentary folk might be interested in this material; obviously the more professional the better.

I’ve created a specific card for this on Sqale. And I’ve added this video to the Action Cycle site.



  • Sqale for everything: projects are created on sqale, contact with others are done through sqale, tracking thanks for people who help with projects, remunerate participants; use Sqale with any form of engagement
  • Urb: come up with narrative stories which reflect my experience, challenges; metaphoric, and explorative, so that not just like boring blog posts exploring possible solutions, but emergent within the fantasy world… perhaps? Perhaps share stories which suggest the transformation required to others… Certainly have characters yabber on about what they are trying to do in their respective system, and someone yabbering on about whole system change
  • ABC State: Yes, I need to push this along. Can ABC state be used for all social engagements beyond a dyad? Actually, I need to relate it to tango, perhaps.
  • Action Cycles: and other business related practices relevant for confluence collective. We are working together.
  • Reflexive Reading: and the other techniques to provide basis for social science. Use the theoretical underlabour of Bhaskar, third order cybernetics etc. The social version of Hippocratic Oath.
  • XQ: Define the maths for this. Use maths to explain.
  • Zero Social-Distance: Need to practice this, while engaging others live. And Jaxing for the sharing of internal and responsive content.

Make it Happen

I need to start practicing all the systems.

I can’t keep going on about each one of them.

I need to operate all of them. So when I am operating one, they make use of the others.

I can not proceed with eg trying to talk to environmental folk in Hope Valley using eg email. I need to operate the business method of human-to-human engagement, using Sqale. And not to simply give a talk about, but to invite action while listening.


“I need to practice simultaneous systems in my mind, so that I do not fall into using traditional methods.”
