Just wait… college is coming!
1. The need to always be right – and to be affirmed by others as being right.
2. The need to control other people, and the circumstances of your life.
3. Any tendency to play “the victim role”.
4. Negative and destructive self-talk.
5. Self-defeating and limiting core beliefs. (“I’m worthless;…
A man who assisted in autopsies in a big urban hospital, starting in the mid-1950s, describes the many deaths from botched abortions that he saw. “The deaths stopped overnight in 1973.” He never saw another in the 18 years before he retired. “That,” he says, “ought to tell people something about keeping abortion legal.

Map Makers are the people of the world who express knowledge and information, interpretation and context, art and science.
They are Visualizers. Generative Coders. Geographic Painters.
Spatial Choreographers. Illustrators and Model Builders. Database Processors. Pattern Makers.
They think of boxes outside the box. They give us perspectives and interactive choices.
If the world is about dimensional exchanges of matter and energy, Map Makers give us space and time, and the essential patterns of meaning.
I love this.
Valuing: Earth, Enterprise and Life
In December 2012, a pink-haired complex systems researcher named Brad Werner made his way through the throng of 24,000 earth and space scientists at the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union, held annually in San Francisco. This year’s conference had some big-name participants, from Ed Stone of Nasa’s Voyager project, explaining a new milestone on the path to interstellar space, to the film-maker James Cameron, discussing his adventures in deep-sea submersibles.
But it was Werner’s own session that was attracting much of the buzz. It was titled “Is Earth F**ked?” (full title: “Is Earth F**ked? Dynamical Futility of Global Environmental Management and Possibilities for Sustainability via Direct Action Activism”).
Standing at the front of the conference room, the geophysicist from the University of California, San Diego walked the crowd through the advanced computer model he was using to answer that question. He talked about system boundaries, perturbations, dissipation, attractors, bifurcations and a whole bunch of other stuff largely incomprehensible to those of us uninitiated in complex systems theory. But the bottom line was clear enough: global capitalism has made the depletion of resources so rapid, convenient and barrier-free that “earth-human systems” are becoming dangerously unstable in response. When pressed by a journalist for a clear answer on the “are we f**ked” question, Werner set the jargon aside and replied, “More or less.”
There was one dynamic in the model, however, that offered some hope. Werner termed it “resistance” – movements of “people or groups of people” who “adopt a certain set of dynamics that does not fit within the capitalist culture”. According to the abstract for his presentation, this includes “environmental direct action, resistance taken from outside the dominant culture, as in protests, blockades and sabotage by indigenous peoples, workers, anarchists and other activist groups”.
It’s past time for us to wake up. We have to give up the idea of individual for something larger than us… Our species is at risk.
When we look at the concept of education through the lens of Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems, we immediately notice that the word “education” itself generally refers to formal processes and institutions that deliver teacher-driven content from preschool through higher education.
We believe that every attempt to embrace complexity faces the SLANT of languages and inherited knowledge that were not built for that purpose. At Y Worlds, we believe the people of the world need a far better way to handle complexity than the toolset and education we grew up with.
We need a dynamic visual language that communicates systems
We need a set of high-level principles for stability
We need a toolset that is designed to meet bold new objectives
We need a universality that transcends barriers of language and education and resources
We need to push away from the endless conversations and spinnings of wheels
Instead let’s found a cooperative exchange that unites, enlightens, and empowers.
What the hell is this?! Is this a cult? I want lead a tangent, an off-shoot, of this cult… I am ordained… Waiting for an invite…
