            jorl, on superficial surfing of a small part of your SemWrld nuet had tentatively concluded that most of what you write falls in the category of Liberation Scientific. nuet characterizing jorl's (a construct in nuet's world) proposing variations of what others have proposed - but with jorl's unique style. Jorl's mix of relevant topics is unique;  and jorl's scope expands over many relevant domains. Yet, there is also a clear under-current of the Beyond, in support of the Critique of Established Epistemic Processes. Add your comment on this item161

             

            When I was your age (in 1971) I was still just beginning to learn about deep politics, conspiracy, and the dysfunction of activists. I was frustrated by the conflict between hippies and radicals (experienced during the 1960s), and was enabled in abandoning anti-establishment activity by moving from Minneapolis (a hotbed of activity) to Tucson (a backwater of complacency). As I developed distance from anti-establishment activity I began to examine why we (the anti-war, civil-rights, environmental, anti-establishment, movements) failed.  I discovered Seymour Sarason, community psychologist at Yale, who had studied social activist movements during the 1960s.  Although I was a thorn in many dysfunctional organizations I was part of in the 1960s, reading Sarason and my isolation (in Tucson) from activists facilitated my self examination, and I began looking more deeply into existing activist organizations and movements. That started my slow emergence from seeking "new" to seeking "nu". It has been a slow and often painful process, discovering one-by-one that those movements I had almost idolized were seriously flawed. This shift came at the time I learned about metamorphosis, the potential of radically accelerated & meaningful learning, and the powers of creative emergence over transformation. Add your comment on this item162

             

            nuet's comprehension has greatly improved over the decades, but his ability to share with others and organize has not been successful. A big flop. But, much of my learning over these decades has come from a study of flopping - myself and others.  I'm not sure what I am doing, but I continue - and am open to radical change, a personal metamorphosis.View comments on this item Add your comment on this item163
