5 streams methodology

  1. 1. 5 Streams Methodology Research and Development of methodology for Knowledge Management how to deal with today's huge amount of information's by Alex E.N.
  2. 2. Vision: To understanding and make better approach to everyday streams of huge amount of information's. Purpose: How to place your self amongst all every day streams of huge amount of information's and make use of it. <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>5 Streams Methodology is based on concept of five elements taken from old </li></ul><ul><li>Greece philosophy. I used them in the same meaning as Empedocles, in sense of </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;roots&quot;, although in my case I see them more as 'source code' (in programming </li></ul><ul><li>sense). </li></ul><ul><li>It was Empedocles who established four ultimate elements which make all the </li></ul><ul><li>structures in the world - fire, air, water, earth. Empedocles called these four elements </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;roots&quot;. </li></ul><ul><li>But it was Aristotle, grandfather of empirical science, who included ‘aether’ in the </li></ul><ul><li>system of the classical 4 elements of Ionian philosophy as the &quot;fifth element&quot; (the </li></ul><ul><li>quintessence). </li></ul><ul><li>The reasons why I take the concept of five elements as basis for 5 Streams </li></ul><ul><li>Methodology are following: </li></ul><ul><li>- to say, that our basic human cognition doesn't change that much from the time of old Greece </li></ul><ul><li>- therefore the basic principles of our cognition are the same in 21. century of &quot;modern time&quot; as they were in &quot;old time of Greece&quot;. Only the amount of information's and their speed of exchange is much bigger </li></ul><ul><li>- the concept of five elements contains strong association component with everything around us. Water, air, fire, earth are components that we can see and feel everywhere, therefore is not just the 'abstract thought'. Therefore is associative way of thinking much more natural for almost all people </li></ul><ul><li>- in sense of 'source code' it's very easy to associate those 'elements' with concrete perceived components of physical world as well with different levels of abstraction </li></ul><ul><li>- although we live in 'modern world of science', most of people are still using 'association method' instead of scientific method, because thinking in associations is much more easier, than constant organized thinking. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore is this methodology filling the gap between associative way of thinking </li></ul><ul><li>and systematic thinking in order to create new innovative ways how to be more </li></ul><ul><li>effective in realization in today's very complex modern world. </li></ul>5 Streams Methodology
  3. 3. Key meaning of Water Stream: Absolute diversity of directions in huge variety of information's. What can be described as 'potential for growth into realistic potential'. Key words: Super-repository of knowledge. Main operational point: To be open. To be acceptable for variety of information's. Necessity to be aware of their existence, if you want to find new opportunities for realization of your own ideas, interests, projects or products. <ul><li>1. Water as 'Super-stream' of information's </li></ul><ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Water Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Open Intelligence. </li></ul><ul><li>By this stream is just important that we stay open for him. It's no need that we must chase each information as well is no need that we are closing our self for them. It's completely enough that we stay with 'open eyes and open ears', because we never know from which direction might come very useful information for us. That's the same attitude as 'to be open for life'. </li></ul><ul><li>Open Knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>It's very simple fact, that internet is today a part of our evolution. Actually, it represents real revolution in offering free available knowledge, which was never seen before in our known human history. Some might argue, that for example shamans always has access to Open Knowledge, because of their special abilities. As well in relation to latest discoveries about our brain others might argue, that our brain has the capacity to perceive much more as we are able to be aware. But in both this cases people needs long term training (or to be born with special abilities) that they become able to access all kind of information existing in nature around us. </li></ul><ul><li>But in case of internet you don't need to be born with special abilities, neither you need long training to start using the internet. All what you need is know how to read, have access to one computer (not even your own), which is connected to internet. And you can learn in one hour how to browse on Google. That's really very fast way how we can come to huge amount of information's. </li></ul>Water Stream
  4. 4. Main example: Internet. Key benefits: The access to different sources of information's. Main danger: To get drown in a huge amount of different information's. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Water Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Relax chat dimension - browsing. </li></ul><ul><li>Whatever above mentioned characteristic may sound 'very intensive', we have here to deal as well with very simple 'chat dimension'. It means this is also the stream where we are chatting about all sorts of stuff. We can say of course that this is 'collecting the information's', but in the same time this can be also 'just walking through the stream of information's'. It can become really interesting, but it can become also very boring. In short, although this stream can opens access to a lot of useful information's, we are actually 'doing nothing really serious' at this stage. Therefore I can say, that in this stream, we are just 'enjoying our relax relation to information flow'. The same as tourist driving around and enjoying wonderful landscape ('collecting nice information's'). In another words, if somebody has a lot of thoughts in his head, of course we can say that he 'is thinking', but we can't say that he is already 'the Thinker' - in positive meaning of this word. As well without thinking potential (a lot of informative thoughts), we will never become able to understand certain things. To really understand the difference, we must go into next stream. </li></ul>Water Stream
  5. 5. Key meaning of Air Stream: Information exchange in groups with similar views. Realistic potential for possible growth into concrete realization. Stream, where we can exchange our ideas, although is not yet necessary that we will also come to realization. It's just possibility 'in air' to do this. Like appropriate atmosphere with enough fresh air, that we can breathe. Key words: Five degrees of separation. Make the appropriate connection. <ul><li>2. Air as Communication stream </li></ul><ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Air Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Symbiotic Intelligence - in function as 'Network Thinking'. </li></ul><ul><li>By today's speed of spreading of different ideas, it is very difficult to be 'first' with one idea, which is not already existing in one or another variation somewhere on this planet. And not only this. The speed of realization process is today much faster then just 20 years ago (mainly because of the internet). All this is resulting in huge amount of different products, what gives a rise to very hard competition in almost everything. Even when you will say: &quot;I don't care for this&quot;, you will start to feel it, once you will start to seek for 'appropriate job'. What is the case in 99,9% of people on this planet. And because we have so many products and services, that on one side companies can afford to give some of them for free and on other hand so much huge offering of everything, that companies or individuals simply must start to give things for free in order that somebody will at least start using their products or services. I am not counting people, who really wants to give things for free, because they anyway like doing this. So, all this are very simple fact which are creating 'free open environments'. Where people can come together and start sharing things for free. Because of that we have today a huge trend of 'Open Concepts' in everything. Not just Open Source (Linux), but also Open Hardware, Open Science, Open Innovation, Open Architecture ect. And the strongest embodiment of this trend is of course social network phenomenon. Between 2000 and 2010 we have literary explosion of different kind of social networks. From 'chatty' ones like Facebook and Twitter, business ones like LinkedIN and XING to scientific ones like SciSpace, Epernicus and ResearchGate. By all of them is characteristic that they have free access and that you can join groups of your interests or create your own groups. </li></ul><ul><li>And that's the whole point, that you can have free choice for which you don't need to pay and that you have no serious obligations here. Of course you can have it, but you are not force to. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of that, 'free open environments' create very relax atmosphere. And in such relax atmosphere the exchange of ideas can happen very fast. Therefore is here very appropriate place, where different ideas can get more realistic forms as well they can be tested (to some extend) in the same time. This can result not just in finding 'the right information', but also to create 'the right information'. Which can start new concrete realization process. And this was reached with 'network thinking' as function of Symbiotic Intelligence (synergy between people co-working in free network environments). According to my opinion is this the main purpose of Symbiotic Intelligence as one of the characteristics of 'air (communication) stream'. with help of network thinking (more people joining together) find and create the right information what can enable new realization process of any kind. </li></ul>Air Stream
  6. 6. Main operational point: Communication. Connections. Mind tolerance. Leave other ones breathe (air) to. Constant learning how to build the dialogue. Constant brainstorming and testing of different ideas. Main example: Social networks as main phenomenon of web 2.0. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Air Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>As far more you are effective in creating things for free, far more you will be </li></ul><ul><li>effective in producing things for money. </li></ul><ul><li>This is the concept, based on 'network thinking' as function of Symbiotic Intelligence, which will change today's global capitalism into huge network system (people + internet) where will be more and more things 'for free'. </li></ul><ul><li>This concept is direct product of so high production of everything, that companies and individuals can on one side afford to give things for free and on other side they also must give them for free in order to bring people to start using them. </li></ul><ul><li>Here lies realistic foundation for how we might come some day to futuristic vision of Jacque Fresco about Resource-Based Economy where the potential of sharing the resources (products and services) is much more effective than have monetary system, which is already starting to blocking smooth flow between high production capacity and consumption. </li></ul><ul><li>In sense, if people doesn't have jobs, because of advanced technology which is replacing them, then they doesn't have the money to buy. </li></ul><ul><li>And if they doesn't have the money, they can't buy even the very cheap products or services. </li></ul>Air Stream
  7. 7. Key benefits: Get the right information. And create the right information. In order to be effective in collaboration it is for crucial importance to find the right subject, the right environment and the right people to co-work with. Because we will be always having our tolerance limits. Therefore is good that we have the opportunity to access and chose the right information where we can go, what we can do and with what kind of people we want to co-work, that we can function enough optimal. And even, if we are never able to co-work with the same people for a long time period, we must have the opportunity to change our working environment. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Air Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Illusion as tangible fact which gives in the same time new opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>for all kind of possible realizations. </li></ul><ul><li>It's the simple fact, that everything what appear on Internet is virtual. And virtuality is actually just another expression for 'illusion'. But we like this and to certain extend we also need this. For example, until I don't get enough positive feedback for my '5 Streams Methodology', will this stay an illusion (as one of many not fully realized possibilities). But until then, I simply must believe in this 'illusion', that this might function as well I must believe in 'illusion' of internet, that this positive feedback can also happen on-line. </li></ul><ul><li>Namely on free available social networks we can be very tolerant and very communicative with a lot of different people, because we doesn't have real obligations to them. As well we can switch off the communication (and the computer) at any time we want. Probably in a lot of cases, if we will meet in 'real life', in face-to-face communication, our 'tolerance' would be not 'that high'. Even worse, we might get into troubles. Because usually in 'real life' we can't switch off the communication so easy without offending somebody or getting into troubles. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore internet communication set aside almost whole 'real' emotional dimension and very wide opens the door just to our mental flow - where we can also invent all sorts of 'virtual emotions'. Of course we can tell each another a lot of lies, if we want to. But we can also much more focus just on exchanging and forming new ideas, because we are not 'distracted' with a lot of emotional signals from others - we even can't see them. </li></ul><ul><li>I am hoping, that internet communication will never totally replace 'real' face-to-face communication, but it can definitely help us to better form our mental flow of ideas as well as exchange and test a huge amount of information's very fast. </li></ul>Air Stream
  8. 8. Main danger: Things &quot;can stay in air&quot; as an illusion. If we just exchange ideas or information's and never come even in testing realization stream, then things will never happen. As well, if changes are happening to fast, the materialisation process stream can not develop to his full effect. As well we might discover, that we can be &quot;tolerant&quot; just on &quot;safe distance&quot;, but when we come &quot;to much together&quot;, we can not function. It means, that online social networks can create &quot;very friendly environments&quot;, which can be very inspirited &quot;in air&quot;, but might never function in &quot;face-to-face&quot; communication. Therefore, &quot;ideal social society on safe distance&quot;. In another word, illusion. Mirror sphere where things &quot;can function&quot; only inside of the mirror, but never outside of this mirror. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Air Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation Inspiring Environment - research and development process. </li></ul><ul><li>As result of all above mentioned characteristics, we are getting very innovation inspiring environment, where research and development process can be much more effective as well it can reach a huge complexity. </li></ul><ul><li>The 'air stream' is activity where we can make diversity of research as well we can develop complex structures and 'complicated' systems, which can be, thanks to Symbiotic Intelligence, tested by large amount of people. </li></ul><ul><li>We don't need to be so much worried here, if something will really work or not. </li></ul><ul><li>But, if we want, that is realized something, what can be really useful for larger amount of people, then we must go into next stream. </li></ul>Air Stream
  9. 9. Key meaning of Fire Stream: Collaboration in groups with identical specific interests. It's not necessary that they are collaborating all the time. It's also enough, that they are connected as group with common agreement to be almost always available to each another for concrete realization. In 'old times' was this called friendship or 'brotherhood'. Today, we have different types of 'associations'. <ul><li>3. Fire as Identification Transfer stream </li></ul><ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Fire Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Attraction Laws. </li></ul><ul><li>Whatever you like this or not, Laws of Attraction rules everywhere. </li></ul><ul><li>If you want to realize something what should be attractive for more people than just you, then you must reconsider this very seriously. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course different people, different taste. Sometimes can be very different what is for someone attractive. As well is simple fact, that somewhere whole nations in general (most people) doesn't have 'taste' at all. What might sound 'racist-like', but is true and case for a lot different researches. </li></ul><ul><li>What creates the question, are we trained (in different cultures in different way) to like something ? But still it doesn't matter, if you want then 'to train people to like something', because you must anyway start with something what is enough attractive for at least specific target group of people in order to become enough widely accepted to realize something. </li></ul>Fire Stream
  10. 10. Key words: Interests. Skills. Self-identification. Adrenalin. Attraction to each another with &quot;common fire&quot; of special abilities. Specialized collaboration. Filtering what is really more useful or important for us. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Fire Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Filtering information's. </li></ul><ul><li>Filtering things which really do matter for us is very important characteristic in fire stream. </li></ul><ul><li>Although we are filtering all the time, it is good not just to follow your analytical thoughts, but also some sort of 'inner feelings', intuition, instincts, even so called emotional intelligence. To become able to distinguish more objective feelings from subjective impressions. If we don't develop this kind of ability, we can become very easy impressed with a lot of different things. As well we can be attracted to a lot of different things, which maybe doesn't matter for us at all. </li></ul><ul><li>It can get even worse. If we don't learn to filter information's with our 'mind and soul', then it can happen, that we won't know what actually 'really matters at all'. </li></ul><ul><li>And we can't blame technology for that. Nobody is ordering us that we 'must' passive follow all information's on TV or internet. As well is a lot of people warning about this. </li></ul><ul><li>Now just to inform you. Once you notice by your self, that you are actually most of the time just passive follow information's around you (including TV an internet), then you know that your 'inner fire' is fading away. And with this your strength, which can help you to filter diversity of information’s. </li></ul>Fire Stream
  11. 11. Main operational point: Find your self in one group (stream) where you can make concrete realizations or create your own stream. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Fire Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Fusion of interests. </li></ul><ul><li>Realization process always start in groups of chosen people. It doesn't matter how small is this group (it can be just two people), it's still a group. If you imagine, that you can do it 'everything' by your self, in today's huge competitions and need for faster realization, then you are total illusionist. </li></ul><ul><li>And this simple fact doesn't change even, if might somewhere on this world exist 'a few individualists' who can manage to do 'everything' by them self. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore is very important in this groups of chosen people, that they make what I call 'fusion of interests'. They simply must have somewhere in their projects the same or at least identical interests. If they doesn't have enough identical interests 'in something', they simply can not co-work or is their collaboration very difficult. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of this, if you want to ensure that the 'fire stream' becomes as much successful as possible, you must know the personal interests of your co-workers. It is very good, if this interest are enough identical. And it can be also very dangerous, if their interests are totally the same. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore, just 'enough fire' is this what is wanted. with 'to less or too much' is always the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>That's why the 'fire stream' would be always very hard challenge. Even, if you 'know all answers'. </li></ul>Fire Stream
  12. 12. Main example: Online collaboration software's to which you must be invited or you must pay for them. They share much more identical interests, not necessary the same one, but enough identical, that they are attracted to co-work together. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Fire Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Synergy of skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Another fact is, that 'fusion of interest' doesn't help you, if chosen group of people doesn't have enough appropriate skills. </li></ul><ul><li>It doesn't matter, if you need in your group people with very different skills, so far are their skills very good. For example, many people probably desire to become 'millionaires', but they doesn't have skills for that. As well are existing people who has the skills to become 'millionaires ', but are not interested for that. </li></ul><ul><li>As appropriate skills and abilities are totally necessary, it is for crucial importance that people in group with different skills achieve also appropriate 'synergy of skills'. </li></ul><ul><li>Today exists a lot of 'how to manage this or that', but on end always comes to 'specific chemistry between certain people'. </li></ul><ul><li>Without this 'specific chemistry' even very 'clever management' won't help you. </li></ul>Fire Stream
  13. 13. Key benefits: Stronger realization capacity. One person might start something, but more people together, with &quot;common fire&quot; of skills, can much more ensure realization effects. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Fire Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Effective organisation - to be effective means also to have enough </li></ul><ul><li>adrenaline. </li></ul><ul><li>In each realization process it is very desirable, that you have good organization abilities. If you can organize things very good, people will wanting to co-work with you, if not, they will not want to co-work with you - unless they must for whatever what reason. It is very interesting fact, that people with 'inner fire', would be always better organisers or leaders, than just very rational people, without any kind of fire in them. And this 'fire' is very much connected with adrenaline. It is very good to know, that people with enough adrenaline are always better in realization process - even better, if this kind of people can be the leaders. If you still doubt in this, then ask your self, if you will be ready to follow the person who is known as 'pussy'? Or even to co-work with this kind of person? </li></ul><ul><li>But it is also good to know, that people with lack of adrenaline has special ability to 'improvise the fire'. They make 'bubbles with hot air'. Because they don't have that much adrenaline, which will help them to survive, they are forced to develop their head and in many cases their talking and witting skills. Because of this they can many times convince people to give them leading positions. But when it comes so far that they should also really lead the realization process, they failed. That's how they can be discovered, but then is usually to late. About which type of people I am talking about? Well, politicians of course (not only them, but mostly them). Almost all of them are like this. Because, they are also forced - in order to survive - to exclude every 'real leader' from their side. Because each real leader will usually wants people with real useful skills around him. Not 'bubbles with hot air'. </li></ul><ul><li>In many cases is this kind of 'fake fire', much dangerous as real fire. Because it is identical to half-true. And the best lies are always covert with half- truths. </li></ul><ul><li>As well is good to know, that people with 'fake fire' can't be loyal. Therefore they will betray you, if in nothing else than in the realization process, because they haven't enough skills for it. Their skills belongs to air and water stream where the loyalty is not that much required. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore it is for crucial importance for effective organisation, to identify at the right time to which stream is belonging which skill. </li></ul>Fire Stream
  14. 14. Main danger: Conflicts in personal approach and personal interests. If there is no &quot;common fire&quot;, the realization process will fail or it will be not that much successful, because people are then not inspiring each another. If there is &quot;to much fire&quot;, the realization might be very effective, but also very exhausting. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Fire Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Self-identification. </li></ul><ul><li>If people in your group can identify them self with this group, then is the 'fire for realization' very much ensured. </li></ul><ul><li>Self-identification in sense 'I belong to this group' is 'crown characteristic' in realization process. </li></ul><ul><li>People are always spontaneous looking for something with which they can identify them self. </li></ul><ul><li>And in each work (or group co-work), with which they can identify them self, they will feel very natural. </li></ul><ul><li>This kind of 'personal natural environment' will make them in the same time more focused (motivated) and relaxed. </li></ul><ul><li>What are conditions, which can ensure very high efficiency in realization process. </li></ul>Fire Stream
  15. 15. Key meaning of Earth Stream : Modules of conrete set of actions (how to approach to solve specific problems, which will direct produce concrete benefits). Usually this are business modules, but it can be any kind of algorithm (a set of rules that precisely defines a sequence of operations) for any kind of repeating automatization. <ul><li>4. Earth as Materialisation Process stream </li></ul><ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Earth Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Feedback. </li></ul><ul><li>If you are doing something also for others (not just for your self) and not getting good feedback from people, then you can't say that you are successful in 'manifest world'. </li></ul><ul><li>As far more larger amount of people is giving you good feedback, far more you can say that you are successful in 'manifest world'. </li></ul><ul><li>Quantity and quality of good feedback is therefore main orientation point, which shows you, if your module or method is really working or not. </li></ul><ul><li>If it doesn't work, then if you are convinced, that your module or method 'must' work, you may insist as far you can until it doesn't start to work or until you are simply forced to changed your module or method. </li></ul>Earth Stream
  16. 16. Key words: Need. Simplicity. Optimization. Automatisation. Constant co-work between people is required in order to ensure continuity of production or different kind of services. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Earth Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Personal benefits. </li></ul><ul><li>In materialisation stream you must have any kind of benefits, regardless what this may be (usually is the money, but it's not necessary). </li></ul><ul><li>Without this you can not exist in 'this world'. </li></ul><ul><li>without it, no materialisation process can happen. </li></ul><ul><li>In context of society, we all from each another, must find any kind 'of usage', otherwise we can't co-exist. </li></ul><ul><li>And that's just logical fact. It doesn't have nothing to do with 'cruelty', egoism nor altruism. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course, its 'usage' can be very different. Otherwise for example fashion model would be totally useless. Now, they are even earning a lot of money. </li></ul>Earth Stream
  17. 17. Main operational point: Orientation according to feedback of your actions (in sense to be flexible) and in the same time steadiness in one direction. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Earth Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Simplicity - that things can be repeated very easy. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep it simple, if you must repeat specific activities many times. </li></ul><ul><li>Otherwise, materialisation process will become to much difficult. </li></ul><ul><li>From subjective perspective we might have very different points of views what is 'more simple'. </li></ul><ul><li>As well from objective perspective, we have different 'simplicities' for scientist, philosopher, engineer, business people and just 'regular' people. </li></ul><ul><li>But regardless, if we are talking from subjective or objective perspective, in case of materialisation process is the feedback this universal fact, which will tell us what is 'really' simple and what not. </li></ul><ul><li>It means you can't say just for your self 'that you are simple' and set this as universal fact. </li></ul><ul><li>Just others can say to you what is simple. Therefore, if others are saying that we are not simple, then you are either in relation to wrong people or you are really wrong. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course we have also paradoxes. Although most of people who are using Microsoft Windows will say that they are not simple at all, are they still used by many millions of people, because of different personal benefits. </li></ul><ul><li>So, it is good to know, that personal benefits have much stronger influence in earth stream as simplicity. </li></ul>Earth Stream
  18. 18. Main example: Every successful product , service , event or happening of any kind . Under successful is therefore meant everything what is used by larger amount of people in terms as : - thinking about (as trends) , - we can touch it , - we can listen to , - we can see it , - we can taste it and - that we can smell it. What can mean diversity of things, not just things who 'sells well' and make a lot of money . <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Earth Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Timing – doing 'the right things in the right time at right space'. </li></ul><ul><li>Timing is everything in materialisation process. </li></ul><ul><li>It is quite often case, if something doesn't happen at the right time, it will either never happen or it will happen with many problems. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course, we can always rationalize, that it was 'not the right time', if we haven't done things at the right time. </li></ul><ul><li>One way or another, it is almost legendary success formula 'to be at the right time at the right place'. </li></ul><ul><li>Usually are people forgeting this part, that many places and times 'can be right', if you are doing 'the right things'. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore it is of crucial importance for successful materialisation, that you are keeping focus on 'the right timing'. Otherwise, you will be never good materialiser. </li></ul>Earth Stream
  19. 19. Key benefits: Concrete visible changes in society (all kind of products, services , events, happenings and money as well). Main danger: Greed and boredom. People might get greedy, if production is very successful, as well they might become bored, because of repeating the same actions over and over again. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Earth Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>CONSTANT SYNCHRONIZATION between different processes. </li></ul><ul><li>In order to ensure successful materialisation (and stay realistic), constant synchronization between different processes and streams is required. </li></ul><ul><li>As we know from 'real' life, things are going very rarely enough smooth by the plan. Therefore is required constant adjustment, reconciliation of viewpoints, interests, works and needs. </li></ul><ul><li>If we don't want to be successful 'just from time to time', if we want constant successful materialisation, then we will very soon figure out, that we need constant co-work of all streams. </li></ul><ul><li>All four streams, that I describe them until now, are constant flow of changes, which are constantly influencing each another and can't never totally exist witheout each another. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore we are now very natural coming to ‘need’ for ‘Fifth Stream’ called ‘Aether Stream’. </li></ul>Earth Stream
  20. 20. Key meaning of Aether Stream: Stream of constant cyclic changes (like by rotations of planets). Each cycle is one 'unchangeable' trend who is for certain time 'ruling the society'. Key words: Origins and originality. Roots for patterns. Main trend. Main stream. Archetypes. <ul><li>5. Aether as Zeitgeist stream (Macro-cosmic Line) </li></ul><ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Aether Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to express archetypes. </li></ul><ul><li>This kind of ability can be described as ‘ Voice of the Time '. </li></ul><ul><li>In pop-culture, f or example Madonna (american pop singer, actress and entrepreneur) was having this ‘ Voice of the Time ‘ although she haven’t really excellent physical voice. She was more that 10 year setting new trends in society not just by womans. And she was using 'very primal' ( mostly sexual and erotic) expressions of common archetypes (so much, that in time she become stereotype for many things). I am using her as example, because she was very good in using all streams (because as vocalist, she was not having exactly the best voice and as actress she also wasn't the best actress), but she manage to combine 'all streams ' in one big success. </li></ul><ul><li>Very different example in car industry is Ferry Porsche (Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche) who invented his famous even now popular Volkswagen Beetle and Porsche 911. His products are embodiment of all streams into almost 'eternal' attractive form. </li></ul><ul><li>It's to many examples to mention them all. Therefore I don't want even to start mentioning examples from Antique art. </li></ul><ul><li>What is important to mention is that all of them were initialized only by one person or very small group of talented people , who was having extraordinary sense to express roots of mind into very influential form. </li></ul><ul><li>For example Renaissance was initialized from very few people around Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499). Who becomes so much influential, that they manage to create total new era – age of Renaissance. Thanks to them, we are not any more ‘so much’ noticing, that was the job of assassin, one of the most respectable jobs in their time. </li></ul>Aether Stream
  21. 21. Main operational point: Feeling for something (in sense of the talent, sharp insight and intuition). <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Aether Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to be original. </li></ul><ul><li>What originality is, it's a bit hard to define. But in relation to archetypes it can be said, that originality not only express, but is also embodiment of one or more archetypes. In sense of total spontaneous fusion of form and substance. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore many people can be very original, not just 'cultures icons' like James Dean (movie actor) and Jim Morrison (vocalist from music group the Doors). </li></ul><ul><li>Because, ability to be original is very much based on to be natural and behave with spontaneity (not according to rules). That's also the reason, why are children usually regarded as very original. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore following your own inner feelings can definite bring you closer to your own version of originality. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course, if you don't mind, that this can 'sometimes' bring you problems with some existing rules. </li></ul>Aether Stream
  22. 22. Main example: Apple products. After the iPhone was coming out, we suddenly get the boom of 'smart phones' with big display's. As well after successful launch of iPad, we are now getting a lot of similar 'tablet computers'. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Aether Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Uncertainty principle. </li></ul><ul><li>Well, it is known from quantum mechanics, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, but that's not my main issue. What I want to say here is, that we can't control everything. </li></ul><ul><li>Many people might know the main patterns in society, as well even more people might know the main trends and main streams in society. But it is a huge difference between just following the main trends and setting up new trends in the society. </li></ul><ul><li>We all might agree, if you are following the 'ruling patterns' in the specific society, that you can better ensure you materialisation success. But we can't say, if this can ensure you a 'big success' as well we can't say, if this will really makes you happy. </li></ul><ul><li>But it is something what can be said for sure in relation to uncertainty principle. It's optimal to follow the path closer to your own nature. If you doesn't have any specific talents nor ambition to do 'something bigger' in life, it is of course very logical to follow the 'way of main patterns'. But as far more talents and will to success you have, it is very logical to try 'to create your own way'. What is of course not always rational as well. For example, if William Blake (who was largely unrecognised during his lifetime) will decide: &quot;Ah, I can't make much money from my paintings, I will dedicate my life to be a lawyer&quot;, then we will be not able today to admire his own very original approach to paintings and poetry. </li></ul><ul><li>As well would be much better, that many business people will decide for 'peaceful life of small people', than aggressively trying to get big amounts of money. It is very obvious (at least for me), that many business people doesn't have the talent for healthy business at all. Even worse. Because greed was becoming 'very normal' part of our society, we have difficulties to understand what 'healthy business' is. </li></ul><ul><li>But it is good to mention, if we are not all the time trying to find and fulfil 'our own place in this world', then the society related uncertainty principle will be even bigger. And this has nothing to do with any kind of 'irrational spirituality', but with very simple logic. Probably you know very well what happens with your computer, if one of his parts suddenly 'don't know any more' his place or doesn't any more fulfil his own function? It freezes. </li></ul>Aether Stream
  23. 23. Key benefits: When you are 'in trend', everything is easier and successful materialisation is much more ensured. Main danger: Because 'to be in trend' means 'to be closer to successful materialisation', almost everybody wants to reach this. What results in higher competition of more or less similar products, services and look of people. What degrades the potential of variability and original creativity and with this producing 'the society of clones'. And when archetypes are 'cloned' to many times, they change into stereotypes. <ul><li>Basic characteristic's of Aether Stream: </li></ul><ul><li>Synergy between all streams - usage of Symbiotic Intelligence. </li></ul><ul><li>That's process which never ends. It's directly connected with our maturation process in understanding and handling all five streams. What means development of our ability to connect different streams in functional entity. </li></ul><ul><li>In practical sense, this means not only our ability to focus all our different skills and aspects of our personality (like intuition in sense of having 'feeling for something', ways of thinking and our world view, personal interests, emotional factors and our physical moods of body), but also usage and handling of different skills and different aspects of personality by other people. </li></ul><ul><li>Everything what is manifested in our society is always in interaction with other people. And usage of Symbiotic Intelligence simply means ability for effective handling of this interactivity. </li></ul><ul><li>For further reading and understanding of this subject, please look at: http://collectivescience.com/SymIntel.html </li></ul>Aether Stream
  24. 24. Whole 5 Streams Methodology is method for understanding (in sense of putting enough order in our ways of thinking) and handling the process of realization . Or how to make effective channels between things above (abstract) and things down below (concrete). <ul><li>Functional summary of 5 Streams Methodology </li></ul><ul><li>5 Streams Methodology can be summarized in following simple steps: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Step - identification what belongs to which place. Means to know, that pure ideas are not yet materialisation process, but usable as initialization of something. Ability to put 'things on their right place, where they belong', is always already half of solution for every problem. And 5 Streams Methodology should help by this. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Step - use everything we have. In order to develop our cognitive ability of identification, we should use all our skills, including to learn listening to our feelings, as well learning to understand so called emotional intelligence. Because many times in life, things can't be understand just through 'rational reasoning'. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Step - always learn how to combine different things, skills, aspects, concepts as well emotions. Means, anger can be also very useful to give us additional energy to develop some ideas. Combining different things, can enable us to create or find solutions there, where were before just big walls of problems. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Step - finding your 'central point'. Although exist many possibilities around us, it is also the simple fact, that each of us can enough optimal function just in certain combinations (means we are natural acceptable just for certain types of knowledge, just for certain types of people, just for certain types of weather conditions and so on). </li></ul><ul><li>So, it's good to know, that we all are anyway always striving for our 'central point', where we can function the best, even when we are not totally aware of doing this. And because it is hard to find 'the best conditions' for our optimal functioning, we are all the time trying to project 'our optimal conditions' in all other people around us in attempt to create those conditions for our self. </li></ul><ul><li>And because this is very natural for everybody to create his own optimal conditions, it’s better to find people (as co-workers or partners) with identical needs for optimal conditions as forcing those with not at all identical interests. Without reconsidering this as very important fact, we will always fight between each another. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s good to combine different things amongst each another, this enables us to be creative, but only certain combination really works well together. It's like in chemistry or alchemy of art. Some artistic works can be really very impressive, but some of them simply 'doesn't move us'. </li></ul>5 Streams Methodology
