Perhaps today more than ever, synchronicity
Perhaps until we jumpstart/placebo us back to us,
we need to focus on a synchronicity of things that matter..
just until we start believing in us, in learning, in curiosity.
Perhaps what has not yet been experimented with:
1/a city-wide experiment, to provide an ecosystem of
2/ an as-the-day experiment, rather than adding something
or after hours (after school/work).
Perhaps redefining school in this manner could be the root of all problems/solutions/life.
Perhaps if people can see it played out, they will believe enough, to take charge of the
day, as the day, in their own cities.
Perhaps we can model this change in just a few short months, if we are amped up with
this futuristic vision of funding for people, resources and tech:
7 mill – ish: for people,
people that need income can be supported to play with us, especially tapping into
sabbaticals for teachers in the district, and waivers/scholarships into unis/business for
students – so they won’t worry about the potential of being punished later for playing,
or for taking a year (on) off – to come back & play our/their dream/vision
8 mill – ish: for places and resources,
buying and/or renting spaces (ie: community-owned spaces) for the crowdsourced
gatherings that matter, also equipment/resources needed in those spaces, & for
traveling to and from those spaces
5 mill – ish: for tech,
while none of the ideas are new, combining them might be, being able to pay
experts [to write code, for an app to hasten the time between finding what matters
& finding your people…] and purchase resources [wifi, devices,..] will accelerate the
ability to make this equitable on a global scale.
20 mill – ridiculous?
Not if it sustains/creates a new/old society/economy..
We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody
has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of
us can make a technological breakthrough capable of
supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in
recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs
because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some
kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he
must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and
people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true
business of people should be to go back to school and think about
whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along
and told them they had to earn a living. – Bucky Fuller
Imagine – if it works.
