This issue of WORK, CREATING, & PLAY needs extensive explication and dialog beyond this comment section.

QUALIFICATION: When I call for radically increased relevant human activity, a great acceleration, I am calling for increased achievement and productivity, not a faster pace of life. Indeed, in most situations I expect the pace to calm, with greater play and enjoyment. What leads to the acceleration is continuing improvement of individual and team intelligence and competence and much greater efficiency of accomplished work due to enhanced collaboration/synergistic technologies (including methods for "training" users in use of these tools).

However, if a faster "pace of life" includes more "quality" time (work, play, meditation, exercise) and less "wasted" time (tv, jabbering online, escape) - then the "pace of life" may seem to greatly increase -- but not be a strain.

Regarding item 11
When we look at it, we are astounded how very, very little work is actually devoted to human survival/thrival. Even our high tech material world involves only a few in other than boring routine labor.

In The Federation of Damanhur many thousand have worked for 30 some years to create what now exists. The forecasted timeline and future of the Damanhur movement is not clear. Do they expect a sudden very rapid acceleration in growth of both numbers and competencies?

In my view humankind must discover and implement a system of processes that by bootstrapping and utilizing scaffolding a major portion of the whole human population will be uplifted to a distribution of competencies beyond our contemporary best - and in less than two decades. THIS IS OUR CHALLENGE.

In my EaseMen model, this can be achieved, in part, by the creation of human cognitive enzymes - teams of persons that can seaf (support, enable, augment, facilitate) the changes (growth, adaptation, learning, development, evolution, emergence) of synergistic human activity (measured according to six criteria: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sufficiency, enjoyability, elegance) towards NU (a world where what we do is based more on what we will become than on what we were).

I collapse this into a mantra:

reesee seaf galdee nu

SEAFing networks are as enzymes in that they greatly improve and accelerate ordinary human activity - by assisting in synergy and learning/development. Once we get in this groove, the dirt will really fly.

I am fully aware that this wild claim needs much more explication - and in the final evaluation, demonstration in practice. But, if this is what we need, should we not at least see if it isn't possible?

Regarding item 12
/m4 I just devoted over two great hours exploring online this phenomenon - truly astounding. I had heard of the temple before.

I was unable to find TRILOGY OF THE INITIATE by Oberto Airaudi in any local library or online book store. It doesn't even seem available in the books from the Federation of Damanhur, itself. Is it out of print? Was it written in Italian? Please point me to access to the book. I see a number of other books related, even some by Falco.

This is truly an exemplar human creative effort. I feel very attracted to participate. However, as with the theme in WHAT'S MISSING, my efforts will be to WORK to create a process that will actively seek the missing and attempt to facilitate the gaps being filled. To this end, I can't join any existing movement.

I expect that many members of the Federation of Damanhur believe they are the center of what is emergent. I believe that there is no center, but many centers -- of which The Federation of Damanhur is very significant. What I hope to create, a Network of The Missing, will also not be the center - but only another network of human creating activity.

Regarding item 16
Of all papers you have ever presented me with, this is the one that I most strongly and ardently agree with. We must dedicate strongly to the work of creating societies of transformation the world over, and put everything into this. Lion Kimbro - 206.427.2545.

Regarding item 11
For further exposition of this, I cannot too strongly recommend: "The Trilogy of the Initiate," by Oberto Airaudi, of the Federation of Damanhur. The centrality of action and work and overcoming limits are fundamental themes of all three books.

Regarding item 12
This passage matches "The Seven Scarlet Doors" (the final chapter in the Trilogy of the Initiate) by Oberto Airaudi, to the T. Further, I would point out -- the efficacy of this message is absolutely clear: One needs only glance at the Federation of Damanhur to know that it has worked.

General comment
This essay is one of five composed for the lONS 2009 conference held in Tucson in June 17-21. The text of the essays were initially presented on a poster at the conference. I hope that you will comment on parts of these essays and participate in dialog with others who comment.

What follows here are some suggestions on the use of this application, QuickDoc. This is a powerful, yet under-utilized, tool for facilitating quality online conversations and dialogs. Your participation will contribute not only to greater comprehension of the issues of these essays, but also to the furtherance of improved online discourse.

So you can receive email alerts when others comment on this essay, including comments on your comments, and so you might join in the dialog it is recommended that you SUBSCRIBE to this essay. It is also a means I (the author of the essay) can respond to your questions and comments.

To subscribe; first click on COMMENT REVlEW, then click on SUBSCRIBE, enter your email address and select the frequency you want emails. Later you can easily change your selection or stop the emails temporarily or permanently.

While general comments (as in this space) are always welcome, it is recommended that you attach your comments to the parts of the essay they refer to. Unfortunately many people leap into making comments on specific parts in this general comment section, which makes it difficult for dialog.

There are three ways of viewing comments.

(1) They can be viewed in blocks within the main essay text, where the comment blocks can be toggled on or off.

(2) In COMMENT REVIEW displays all parts of the main text to which comments have been made followed by all comments to those parts.

(3) In COMMENT FORUM all comments are listed and can be sorted in various ways. By a click you can be taken to the part of the main text to which each comment was made.

All comments can be edited by their authors (even at later dates) and can be deleted.

It is easy to comment on comments, your own comments or the comments of others. You can create a link button within you comment that will bring up the comment commented on in a separate window. This link is /m# , where # is the number assigned by the program to each comment.

Try to keep each comment brief, only a few paragraphs at most. Make additional comment items if you need to say more. This enables others to target their comments to specific parts of your commentary.

Should a comment become an essay, it might be created as a separate QuickDoc (with separate parts capable of specific comments) and that new QuickDoc linked to the original QuickDoc by a url.

There are other useful features to QuickDoc, which you can explore. QuickTopic is a free version where the main text is one unit to which comments can be made. There is a charge for QuickDoc, but it is well worth the price.

A new QuickDoc can be created in minutes by simply uploading an html file that may have been composed in WORD. Pictures and graphics can also be included.

urls with the traditional http:// format will be buttons to links.
