5 October 2022: (Polignano a Mare, Italy)After an intense Writing House (a Bridge-House) summer in Brazil, whizz-bang summer full of trainings in Mexico, Portugal, Poland, and back to Portugal - including the world's first 50-person Expand The Box training - with a couple weeks timeout on Kos Island, Greece, and delivering workshops at the Global Ecovillage Network Conference in Denmark, we find ourselves with a few weeks to enjoy southern Italy while Anne-Chloé's French passport is being renewed in Paris. On Monday we head over to Hoi An, Viet Nam, to write more books. The newly revised Conscious Feelings is out in the bookstores, while my new book, No Reason: 21 years with Western Baul master Lee Lozowick is in pre-publication at Thoughtware Press. Why more books, you ask? if Reasons are interesting for you. The books - and the new websites at StartOver.xyz - build out new gamespace in the global ethnosphere for Archiarchy. We are global gameworld builders. "Build it and they will come." But if we don't build out Archiarchy infrastructure, how can people most effectively occupy the new spaces? Yes, Rage Club, Fear Club, Possibility Team, Study Group, and trainings are all powerful Matrix Builders. But it is the Distinctions, the Thoughtware, the new Processes and gameworld structures that seems to be our special gift to Archiarchy. Books and websites are the most powerful way pavers.
17 March 2020: (Ravensburg, Germany) We were about to step on the plane from Paris to Kyoto for an exploratory journey - to see if the rumors are true about the revolutionary evolution of consciousness in Japanese woman, and if they might wish to use the tools, thoughtmaps, distinctions and processes of Possibility Management for their path... then our flights were cancelled. We barely made it out of France to our safe haven in Ravensburg, Germany before the French/Germany borders closed due to the https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/. We at General Memetics have made the unprecedented decision to postpone all of our trainings up through June 2020 - these include the Quit School Lab in Portugal, and the ETB and PLab in Mallorca. Then let's re-assess and see what is happening. We heard personal regret from Northern Italians who made light of the warning to stay indoors, and now their friends and families are dying... We hope you are well. We had an absolutely fabulously connection talk with 26 members of the Possibility Management Trainer Path team on Zoom the other night. Maybe Anne-Chloé and I will see what sort of online transformational processes are possible. Time to experiment... Perhaps it is even time to StartOver.xyz.
October-December 2019: (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Delivering talks and our first ETB in big city Rio de Janeiro with its overzealous beach vendors and barrio favelas creeping up the mountains, then bouncing to the tropical paradise of AVIVA to deliver talks and our second Brazilian ETB... like two vastly different worlds in the same Brazil. Next week starts two weeks of Trainer Practice Days with 16 participants here at AVIVA. It's a first trial for the month long...
August 2019:(Still Bali...) I just sponsored Ian Mackenzie's latest film project Love School at Kickstarter to the tune of $1000. It's a next-culture thoughtware-upgrade film with Ian's inimitable flair. They are raising $50,000 for final production. They have $10,000 to go and 9 more days. All or nothing by 13 August. Can you help?
My own book, Radiant Joy Brilliant Love, has sold out of its first printing and the publisher Hohm Press is re-releasing the book under a new title: Building Love That Lasts. (This is the same contents as Radiant Joy Brilliant Love with updated title and website links. It is a new book from me. Next book is still baking in the oven...)
June 2019: (Bali... need I say more?) We get here and the volcano Agung erupts... the writing has begun.
April 2019: (Ravensburg, Germany) Anne-Chloé and I are cranking out structural elements (192 websites so far...) for StartOver.xyz and its SpacePort blast-off platform. This massively-multiplayer online-and-offline personal-transformation thoughtware-upgrade game makes my hairs stand up thrilled. Why didn't anyone build this game for me to explore 20 years ago? Why wasn't school like this? Everything we can get online now as distinctions and experiments to try builds real matrix in people to hold more consciousness, and it's available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year round the world for ANYBODY to use for free! Yay! We are also excited to be part of the PM Trainer Guild Torus near Frankfurt, and then delivering Expand The Box and Possibility Village Lab in Mallorca in May. Maybe we will see you there!
March 2019: (New Zealand - South Island) The 2-day Tuki (village meeting) at Tui (ecovillage in Golden Bay) was fabulous. It felt like water being soaked up into a damp sponge, ripe fruit ready for picking. The residents of the Tui nanonation have done so much preparatory-work over the years that the PM distinctions, thoughtmaps, tools and processes we offered for upgrading the context and thoughtware of their ecovillage-community gameworld got devoured like fresh hot pancakes on a Sunday morning!
February 2019: (New Zealand) By now it is clear that we need a miracle to transform the bus with a child at its steering-wheel speeding towards the cliff-edge at 200 kilometers per hour. The people on the bus must perform this miracle because the child cannot, and we need this miracle RIGHT NOW. These words could be part of that miracle happening. Reading these words is doing your part of the miracle in this moment. My part is collaborating with local edgeworkers to deliver Expand The Box trainings and Possibility Labs, writing books and websites, and being the stand that together we are creating the miracle RIGHT NOW.
December 2018: (Ravensburg, Germany) What is turning me on lately? S.P.A.R.Ks are being translated into 14 languages!!! This is totally inspiring and wonderful!!! I have so much gratitude to the S.P.A.R.K. translators and the Tech Team. Thanks again to everyone helping make these powerful distinctions available in other cultures.
